The FAA has announced the first six locations that will act as test sites for unmanned aircraft
systems into the air traffic system around the country. Before the FAA allows widespread use of
drone aircraft around the country, it has to test the system out and be sure that people in the
air and on the ground will be safe.
China’s Moon Rover Lands Safe and Sound, Starts Snapping Pics
In order to coax the moon probe into a gentle landing, the Chinese lander was equipped with
state-of-the-art mini rockets, which allowed it to gently hover above the lunar surface.
This allowed it to avoid small boulders and large rocks that littered parts of its Sinus
Iridum (Bay of Rainbows) landing site.
How will big data evolve in 2014? The future is anyone's guess, of course, but we thought we'd
compile a tasty holiday assortment of prognostications from executives working in the big data
trenches. So without further delay, here they are -- six big data predictions for next year:
The Department of Defense purchases nearly 7 million types of products and does business with 2.7 million
supplier companies, according to government records. Knowing what products and parts are stocked in DoD
warehouses worldwide is not only a challenge for military logistics personnel, but also for suppliers who
need information on products the DoD keeps in stock.
Predictions for 2014: Big Data, Cloud and Hadoop to Transform Business
Big Data was arguably one of the most hyped concepts of 2013 -- and for good reasons.
The second half of 2013 saw more and more big data projects move from the sandbox/proof-of-concept
to production. Cloud computing is in a very different phase: we are now far past the initial hype
and entering a new era of hybrid deployments, where the cloud extends transparently to the data center.
In 2014, we can expect the following developments in both of these areas:
In 2014, for the first time we’ll see marketers begin using big data to optimize their digital advertising
in ways that integrate seamlessly with people’s busy lives generating highly relevant, meaningful
interactions. RadiumOne predicts marketers’ data-centric demands will power three major ad tech
industry evolutions in the coming year:
Embedded Processor Selection Using FPGA-based Profiling Fadi Obeidat* and Robert H. Klenke**
* Intel Corporation, Austin, TX, USA
** Virginia Commonwealth University, Virginia, USA
In embedded systems, modeling the performance of off-the-shelf processors is very important to
enable the designer to estimate the capability of each candidate processor against the target
application. Considering the large number of available embedded processors, the need has increased
for building an infrastructure by which it is possible to estimate the performance of a given
application on a certain processor with a minimum of time and resources. This paper presents
the use a Xilinx MicroBlaze softcore processor ...
The Application Developer Journal is a companion to the international
conference on Engineering of
Reconfigurable Systems and Algorithms (ERSA) , and will turn the
ERSA conference into
year-around event. Las Vegas is just the place where researchers
and entrepreneurs can meet and talk face-to-face.
