From machine learning to the Internet of Things (IoT) to 5G and the electrification of vehicles, these are not only innovation but also newer challenge to traditional engineers. A US-based firm National Instrument (NI) that provide platform-based systems to engineers and scientists has released NI Trend Watch 2018 report, which examines the technological advances along with some of the biggest challenges engineers face looking ahead to 2018. The report suggest that emerging technologies are disrupting the traditional way of doing things.
“As we advance through the 21st century, our customers demand higher quality devices, faster test times, more reliable networking and almost instantaneous computing to keep their organisations moving forward,” said Shelley Gretlein, NI vice president of corporate marketing.
Machine Learning Puts Data to Work: Intelligent systems create and rely on data, but the ever-increasing quantity of data exacerbates the Big Analog Data challenge. Discover how machine learning addresses the problem head-on, so engineers can focus on finding and solving the next grand challenge.
5G to Disrupt Test Processes: 5G innovation doesn’t stop at design. Test and measurement solutions will be key in the commercialisation cycle, but 5G requires a different approach to test than previous wireless technologies.
3 Mandates of the IIoT– The proliferation of smart and connected “things” in the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) provides tremendous opportunities for increased performance and lower costs, but managing these distributed systems is often an overlooked challenge.
Effects of Electrification: The vehicle electrification trend goes deeper than a global shift from internal combustion and hybrid vehicles to fully electric power trains. Consider implications beyond the increasingly complex vehicle itself, including new demands on supporting infrastructure.
Breaking Moore’s Law – The constant pace of innovation has tracked remarkably close to Moore’s law for decades, despite a few minor revisions and much talk of its death. But now, the more than 50-year-old observation is facing health challenges again.
