Ten years ago, I was in the early stages of the PhD programme in robotics at Carnegie Mellon University.The potential of these technologies was incredible, but up to that point, the focus had been overwhelmingly on applications in areas such as defence, space, manufacturing or pure research.Then, top autonomous driving research was funded almost exclusively by Darpa and other government agencies, and although large-scale autonomous cars have always been one of the dreams of robotics researchers, we would have all been shocked to see what is happening today: dozens of the biggest companies in the world led by a search-engine company , as well as highly funded startups, are collectively investing billions of dollars at the pursuit of the commercial autonomous car.Now there is a sense of inevitability to autonomous cars being a staple of our daily lives within a decade or sooner , with the only questions being the pace at which they will take over, and which of the companies chasing this prize will pull away from the pack.These developments in transportation are a great template for how robotics can disrupt even the most entrenched industries, and highlights a few themes that we will begin to see more frequently:• Incumbents will rarely be the ones that disrupt their own spaces.

Australian team uses Sir Isaac Newton's parlor trick to suck more photons from sunlightUNSW's Mark Keevers with the cell.Image: Rob Largent/UNSWUniversity of New South Wales boffins have laid hands on another record, with a solar cell demonstrating 34.5 per cent conversion efficiency.A simple prism - the device that led Isaac Newton to theorise about the nature of light based on the colours he found in sunlight - is the basis of the demo.The Keevers/Green work used a four-junction module 28 cm2 in area, embedded in a prism.A silicon cell is installed on another face of the prism, to capture energy from the infrared portion of sunlight.In the short term, manufacturing costs mean the beam-splitting approach is more likely to turn up in commercial-scale kit such as the heliostat technology being developed by RayGen and others.
We looked at the big picture and distilled the 2016 Exponential Manufacturing conference into the four big themes we saw emerge during the event.Dale Doughtry, CEO and founder of Maker MediaCrowdfunding platforms are fueling the entry of these low-cost machines, like the Makerarm, which raised nearly half a million dollars on Kickstarter, and is the first complete digital fabrication robotic arm that mounts to a desktop.Robotics expert and director of Columbia University s Creative Machine Labs, Hod Lipson, projected how these advances in AI and robotics will converge to create fully resilient and adaptive cloud-connected factories in the future.Shree Bose took this route with Piper, a computer kit for kids to learn engineering through the game Minecraft and the grand prize winner of Google s Global Science Fair.Bose said she only built one scrappy prototype of Piper before beginning the Kickstarter campaign.Hagel said the economy is splitting into two parts—products and services are fragmenting into smaller and smaller pieces, while the platforms knitting them together are getting bigger.
Nokia Technologies Group Vice President Ramzi Haidamus. Nokia's iconic brand is worth reviving phones. We do not invest in this company at all, but it will perform all marketing, product development and manufacturing independently. We pay very much attention to the fact that the brand is handled well. Työsketelemme HMD with a very close co-operation to ensure that every product that leaves our name on the market, our product promise is responsible for good design and good quality.

Nokia is back in the mobile phone business, after a fashion.It has granted HMD Global an exclusive, 10-year license to the famous brand, allowing the Finnish startup to sell Nokia mobile phones and tablets.Meanwhile Microsoft, which bought Nokia's mobile phone activities in 2013, is finally getting out of the feature-phone business, selling its remaining interests in the Nokia brand and its Vietnamese phone factory to HMD and to FIH, a subsidiary of contract manufacturing giant Foxconn, for around US$350 million.Fans of the Lumia brand should still see software updates, but they may not see any new hardware: Microsoft merely said it would "support Lumia phones such as the Lumia 650, Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL," without talking of developing new models.However, its roundabout return to the mobile phone market was clearly telegraphed.As early as 2014 it dipped a toe back into the mobile market with the release of the Nokia-branded N1 tablet, manufactured under license by Foxconn, the manufacturing partner of HMD.
Just a few years ago, Finland s once-mighty Nokia couldn t wait to unload its dying smartphone business to Microsoft.Microsoft needed a Hail Mary pass to jumpstart its Windows Mobile platform.It was a tough decision for Nokia, a company that had been king of mobile handsets a decade earlier.And so, at first glance, it would seem absurd that suddenly Nokia wants to build a smartphone business from scratch.But times have changed.And so has Nokia.Having shed handsets, Nokia pivoted to focus on telecom and communications equipment.It doubled down by acquiring France s Alcatel, which will give it a broader focus on connected objects and networks.The ability to make cheap, $50 Android phones has given rise to all sorts of regional smartphone players who can offer handsets with decent quality and not too much turnaround time.Many of these phones are aimed at people who are graduating from feature phones to their first smartphone.And its costly manufacturing operations will now be in the hands of a Foxconn subsidiary, as part of the Microsoft deal.Nobody should expect Nokia to become No.
Both Nvidia and AMD graphics cards have been stuck on the 28nm manufacturing process for four long years, but the GTX 1080 s Pascal GPU jumps two process generations, all the way down to 16nm transistors.Some enthusiasts were disappointed that the GTX 1080 didn t feature the revolutionary high-bandwidth memory that debuted in AMD s Fury series, but first-gen HBM is limited to 4GB capacities, and the next iteration isn t expected until roughly the end of the year.You can also create 360 bubble screenshots viewable inside VR headsets or Google Cardboad.The GTX 1080 also supports HDR and copy-protected 4K streams, and offers a new GPU Boost 3.0 system that lets overclockers create per-voltage clock frequency increases that match their individual GPU s capabilities, rather than applying a blanket clock speed increase across the board.Founders EditionWhile the GTX 1080 s prices will start at $599, the only model guaranteed to be available on the May 27 launch date is Nvidia s $699 Founders Edition.Don t buy it yetYes, the GTX 1080 is the most badass graphics card ever created, and a massive leap over what came before—but don t buy it yet.
REUTERS/Mike Blake Reuters - United Parcel Service Inc, the world's largest package delivery company, said on Wednesday it will expand the 3D printing services provided through its UPS Stores to create an on-demand manufacturing network starting this summer.Atlanta-based UPS and SAP SE also announced a partnership in which Europe's largest software company will provide supply chain solutions to help manufacturers get products to market more quickly and at a lower cost."Speed is critical to us and we see tremendous value" in extending SAP's capabilities further down the supply chain via UPS, said John Dulchinos, vice president for strategic capabilities at contract manufacturer Jabil Circuit Inc, in a telephone interview with Reuters.UPS already offers 3D printing services using ABSplus, an industrial grade thermoplastic, at more than 60 UPS Stores around the United States.Under the new system, customers will be able to upload digital designs to First Radius, a company specializing in 3D printing in which UPS holds a minority stake.IDC Research Inc analyst Robert Parker said the network will bring UPS only modest benefits at first because 3D printers have limited capabilities at present and few printable materials available.
Machines, after all, can perform many manufacturing tasks more efficiently, effectively and consistently than humans, leading to increased output, better quality and less waste.SeongJoon Cho/Bloomberg via Getty Images Of the more than 229,000 industrial robots sold in 2014 the most recent statistics available , more than 57,000 were sold to Chinese manufacturers, 29,300 to Japanese companies, 26,200 to companies in the U.S., 24,700 to South Koreans and more than 20,000 to German companies.The basic economic trade-off between the cost of labor and the cost of automation is the primary consideration.AP Photo/Kin Cheung Other countries that have been rapidly integrating robotics into manufacturing, but not quite as quickly, are Canada, China, Japan, Russia, the U.K. and the U.S. China is an interesting case because it s automating rapidly despite the fact that Chinese wages are still comparatively low.Countries moving more slowly in the adoption of industrial robotics include Australia, the Czech Republic, Germany, Mexico and Poland.German Chancellor Angela Merkel shakes hands with a robot at an industrial fair in 2006 alongside Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh.
Microsoft Corp. agreed to sell its feature phone business to FIH Mobile Ltd. and HMD Global for $350 million, exiting a business that once dominated the mobile market under the Nokia name before Apple Inc. s iPhone.FIH, part of Foxconn Technology Group, will also acquire a manufacturing facility in Hanoi, Microsoft said in a statement Wednesday.About 4,500 employees will transfer to the new owners with HMD also signing an agreement to make new devices under the Nokia brand.Microsoft moved into phone production almost two years ago when it bought the handset division of Nokia in a $9.5 billion deal in a bid to make the company relevant in consumer computing beyond PCs.The company later wrote down most of that purchase.
Microsoft is selling its featurephone business to manufacturing company Foxconn, The Verge reports.The deal, which is worth $350 million £242 million, will give Foxconn company FIH Mobile the right to use the Nokia brand, and 4,500 employees will also work for the new company.The official Microsoft press release says it expects the deal to close in the second half of 2016.A featurephone is a low-end mobile phone that doesn't have the capabilities of a smartphone.Microsoft has been scaling back its production of featurephones.A leaked memo from 2014 showed that the company was going to focus on Windows Phones instead of Nokia products.And now Microsoft has moved away from Windows Phones too.Microsoft's 2013's acquisition of Finnish phone manufacturer Nokia has been described by BBC News as "a disaster for all concerned."The company took a $7.6 billion writedown  £5.2 billion from the deal last year, which was more than the $7.2 billion £4.9 billion  that it actually paid to acquire Nokia's phone division.NOW WATCH: Only in San Francisco — inside the 232-square-foot micro apartment that sold for nearly $425,000Loading video...
Simply put, if it has an IP address, an identifier and internet connection then it is an IoT-enabled solution.Ashton has described the potential of the IoT saying that today's computers, and therefore the Internet, are almost wholly dependent on human beings for information."Nearly all of the roughly 50 petabytes a petabyte is 1,024 terabytes of data available on the Internet were first captured and created by human beings by typing, pressing a record button, taking a digital picture or scanning a bar code."He then says that the problem is the fact that people have limited time, attention and accuracy, "all of which means they are not very good at capturing data about things in the real world"."If we had computers that knew everything there was to know about things, using data they gathered without any help from us, we would be able to track and count everything and greatly reduce waste, loss and cost.The industrial IoT, the sort of IoT version for the industrial and manufacturing industries, is expected to add to the world's GDP something between $10tr to $15tr between today and 2035.
Microsoft has announced it is selling the feature phone business it acquired from Nokia to FIH Mobile, a subsidiary of Foxconn, and the newly-established Finnish company HMD Global for $350 million.But Nokia is still a mobile phone company at heart, and it has previously hinted at a comeback, only this time around it would focus solely on designing products and then license the designs and Nokia brand to someone that can handle manufacturing, sales and distribution.HMD Global is a recently-founded company headquartered in Helsinki, Finland, to be run by former Nokia and Microsoft executive Arto Numella.The company has signed a licensing agreement with Nokia Technologies that gives it the sole use of the Nokia brand on mobile phones and tablets worldwide for the next decade, as well as key cellular patents.HMD will make Nokia-branded phones using Google's Android and will invest $500 million over the next three years "to support the global marketing of Nokia-branded mobile phones and tablets.Some rumors say Microsoft may be focusing on a Surface Phone launch next year and it's unlikely we'll see another Lumia this year.
Microsoft has announced that it s selling its feature phone business for $350 million in a group deal to FIH Mobile, a subsidiary of Chinese hardware manufacturer Foxconn, which manufactures iPhones for Apple, and a newly formed company called HMD Global.The transaction is expected to be finalized in the second half of this year.The new firm plans to invest more than $500 million over the next three years to market its mobile products worldwide.Hopefully, its launch with HMD will see its products in stores across the globe soon.The sale will not affect Microsoft s Windows-based mobile operations.Nokia signs strategic brand and intellectual property licensing agreement enabling HMD global to create new generation of Nokia-branded mobile phones and tablets on NokiaRead next: 3 creative ways to monetize your Instagram following
