GCN : October and November 2016
WishList Tech we hope to see in the public sector 66 GCN OCTOBER/NOVEMBER 2016 • GCN.COM Mimicking the brain for better AI Machine learning is a processor- intensive task; just the electricity required can make larger projects cost-prohibitive. IBM’s TrueNorth processors change that equation by connecting the digital “neurons” in parallel across 256 million “synapses.” In the new NS16e array, such processors combine for 4 billion synaptic connections — a tiny fraction of the human brain’s but still serious computing power. And it draws less power than the average laptop. Robots that follow The Roboteam Probot is a 21st-century mule, without all the attendant stubbornness. It can be piloted with a wireless controller, but the broader potential rests in its ability to automatically follow troops or first responders across rugged terrain. The Probot can put a payload of more than 1,600 pounds on a leader ’s heels and keep it there for up to 10 hours of transit. VR for the masses Yes, other virtual reality rigs are already available, but Google’s Daydream View opens the door to a much broader range of public-sector applications. It’s easy to use, exceedingly light and — most important — far cheaper than other headsets. The key remaining obstacle: a very short list of “Daydream-ready” smartphones to power the VR.
