“All the parts that come out will have the advantage of being compatible with this platform—this vision processor, this radar processor, this torque managment device,” said Matt Johnson, who’s in charge of NXP’s product lines, software, and automotive processors.The company, based in Eindhoven, the Netherlands, instantly became the biggest supplier of automotive chips with its 2015 acquisition of the semiconductor manufacturing company Freescale.That compute-heavy task is a perfect fit for the company’s powerful graphics processors, or GPUs.These specialized parallel processors won fame by powering gaming platforms and now, Bitcoin mining operations.“There is an insatiable appetite among car makers for compute horsepower,” says Danny Shapiro, who heads the Santa Clara, Calif. company’s automotive business.But an entire integrated self-driving system is fed by data from lidar, radar, ultrasound, GPS, inertial guidance, and on and on, and it must process it all and produce a decision in a fraction of a second.

For the second weekend in a row, Blade Runner 2049 underperformed at the box office.2 slot, dropping by over half to bring in just over $15 million, and coming in behind Happy Death Day, a horror movie about a college girl who dies and comes back to the same day repeatedly to try and solve her own murder.While the Blade Runner sequel has brought in almost $100 million overseas, it hasn’t been able to capitalize on the strong word of mouth and positive reviews that have earned it an 89 percent “Fresh” on Rotten Tomatoes and acclaim as a worthy successor to the original.Why didn’t mainstream audiences turn out to catch up with Harrison Ford’s Deckard 30 years later and see what Ryan Gosling would add to the story of Replicants?There are a few factors to consider.Adjust for inflation that would be about $15 million in today’s dollars.

Vicky Kalogera, a Northwestern University physicist, took her week of much-needed vacation in Utah this past August.“I canceled everything and ended up working nonstop since that moment,” she told Gizmodo.Today, physicists and astronomers around the world are announcing a whole new kind of gravitational wave signal at a National Science Foundation press conference in Washington, DC.That August day, x-ray telescopes, visible light, radio telescopes, and gamma-ray telescopes all spotted a flash, one consistent with a pair of neutron stars swirling together, colliding and coalescing into a black hole.The observation, called a “kilonova,” simultaneously answered questions like “where did the heavy metal in our Universe come from” and “what causes some of the gamma-ray bursts scientists have observed since the 60s.” It also posed new ones.The Fermi Gamma-ray Space telescope started the dominos at 8:41 am EDT, detecting what NASA astrophysicist Julie McEnery called a “perfectly normal short gamma-ray burst,” a quick flash of invisible light from some distant source.
