The smart home is slowly getting more and more advanced in terms of functionality. Although it may not yet reach the Jetson's level, it might just be on its way there. But for now, there are a number of smart devices now available that will help create a smarter home. But as these devices abound, it will only be sometime before a standard platform for a connected home may be needed. Intel is already developing one and is introducing the Intel Compute Card for the masses. The Intel Compute Card is designed and developed to transform the way smart devices connect and integrate into a smart home. The company is partnering up with other device makers in order to develop a common platform for connectivity of future smart homes. Intel is expecting that this will significantly change the way smart devices are designed and in creating a wide range of solutions for the smart home in the future. The Intel Compute Card is a little more than a credit-card sized device that is equipped with Intel's wide range of powerful processors. It also features integrated WiFi and Bluetooth connectivity. It is designed for easy installation internally as well as externally. What the Intel Compute Card is aimed for is to provide computing power to a large number of devices.

Google acquires artificial intelligence company DeepMind (0)

Google will be shelling out as much as $400 million to acquire DeepMind, a London-based artificial intelligence company that keeps its projects hush-hush. Re/code got the scoop after Google confirmed the acquisition to them, but stopped short in specifying the price. But more than acquiring a company, the deal is about acquiring the amazing talent involved in DeepMind. So much so that Google's CEO Larry Page led the deal himself. Its founder, neuroscientist Demis Hassabis, was a child prodigy in chess that Mind Sports Olympiad even called him "probably the best games player in history". Steeped in mystery, DeepMind's website can only describe its business as "building learning algorithms for simulations, e-commerce, and games". But for the people within the AI industry, DeepMind is seen as a formidable player, aggressively recruiting the best in the field. They even competed with Google, Facebook, and Baidu for talent. Big names in tech are among DeepMind's investors, such as Founders Fund, Horizon Ventures, and Skype's developer Jaan Tallinn. Sources say the company has secured $50 million in funding. Google has been hiring experts in artificial intelligence in recent months. It remains murky what Google plans to do with AI, but some tech blogs say it may have to do with developing various products and systems for e-commerce. Source: Re/code Read More

Intel invests in wearable device maker Recon Instruments (1)

Tech analysts have predicted that wearable devices are the next big thing, which is perhaps why Intel is dropping serious dough on a potential Google Glass rival. The semiconductor company, through its investment arm Intel Capital, has announced it has made a "significant investment" in Recon Instruments, known for making Recon Jet augmented reality-equipped eyewear (pictured) and a bunch of headsets for sports participants. The investment aims at helping Recon Instruments from product development to marketing to beefing up its sales staff. Recon, meanwhile, would be able to tap into Intel's expertise in manufacturing, operations, and technology. Both companies did not reveal how much Intel invested on Recon. The report comes after Intel CEO Brian Krzanich said in an interview with Reuters back in June that his company plans on incorporating its chip technology into more products, including wearable devices. Intel has previously invested on Thalmic Labs, which develops an armbad called MYO that enables users to control objects through gesture commands. In a statement, Intel's Vice President and General Manager for New Devices Group Mike Bell said: "Wearable computing is a major, accelerating phenomenon that re-defines how we use and interact with information." He added: "In Recon Instruments, we see compelling technology and a solid strategy to capitalize on the wearable revolution. This is an area of significant focus for Intel Capital, and our investment in Recon Instruments is a key part of our approach to innovation in this emerging space." Apart from Jet, Recon Instruments also offers the Snow, a system installed in specially-designed snow goggles. It gives the users GPS-collected data from navigation and jump airtime to distance and speed. Source: eWeek Read More

Apple Plans to Replace Intel Processors in Macs with Own Chipset (0)

Bloomberg has reported that Apple is considering to replace the Intel-made processors in Mac desktop and laptop computers with new chips based on designs it uses for its iOS-based gadgets. Apple had reportedly planned about such changes in the past, but had to face several challenges to achieve this. For one, its engineers have to make sure that the current Mac software would work on new processors. They already experienced that struggle when Apple left PowerPC as its chipset manufacturer and opted for Intel, leaving a lot of legacy software incompatible and led to several transition issues. By the looks of it, Apple seems to be confident in their own processors and dropping Intel would be a likely scenario. However, this event will not happen overnight. It is speculated that a major OS update would be released first, paving the way for new architecture to work when future Apple-chipped Macs would be released.

The Autographer Wearable Intelligent Camera (3)

While people may have a wide range of choices when it comes to digital cameras, they generally would get cameras with the same general function. People need to seek what they wish to capture, focus the camera and then click to capture. That's how all digital cameras basically work similarly to each other. It would be interesting to have a digital camera that captures images by itself for a change. This is where the new Autographer comes in. The Autographer is unique in that it may be unlike the usual digital cameras in the market today. Just how different? Well, the Autographer is able to take pictures by itself as you are wearing it. This unique camera is designed to be worn instead of being held. It is also different in that it comes with a custom 136 degree eye view lens to mimic a person's field of vision. It also comes with 5 built-in sensors that is fused with a special algorithm allows the camera to take pictures when the right moment comes. The Autographer decides be itself what pictures to take leaving the hard work to the device. It is this function that makes the Autographer the first intelligent camera in the market. It comes with a 5MPx low light sensor, an 8GB internal memory and Bluetooth connectivity for wireless convenience when making file transfers. The new Autographer is set for availability in November. But those interested may balk at the price since it is expected to cost around US$650. But if money is not a problem as long as you get your hands on the world's first intelligent camera, then the Autographer is for you. Image Source: Autographer Read More
