In-Stream Video Advertising in our ever-connected mobile world

The In-Stream Video Advertising market is increasingly characterized by measured demand, unsold/undersold inventory (i.e. mobile/tablet VOD), and great expectations. 
In fact, in today's fragmented device universe marketers are buying what they know and what works.
According to Research and Markets, there is buying momentum behind mobile/tablet/VOD inventory demand effectively moving the budgetary needle but not uniform across all devices. The total market is forecast at $4.7 billion in 2016, and expected to increase at a moderate single digit rate through 2018.

Vehicle-to-Vehicle and Vehicle-to-Infrastructure Communication System Solutions for the Autonomous-Driving Era

At the heart of stakes, we have: real-time processing and pre-warning of information covering 360 Degree around the vehicle; we have autonomous driving capabilities, to name a few. 
In effect, Renesas Electronics Corporation , as a supplier of advanced semiconductor solutions, announced the global availability of its expansive lineup of V2X solutions that aims to help accelerate the arrival of autonomous driving
I can observe that, the solutions include two system-on-chips (SoCs) that can ease the development process for vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) and vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I) communication systems
By combining these new SoCs, system developers can now easily develop systems that support the corresponding V2X standard for the Japanese, U.S., and European markets.
I can also recall that, Renesas also delivers development starter kits that will enable system developers to immediately start application software development, leading to significant reductions in the development period …

Samsung Exynos 7 Dual 7270 Processor for Wearable Devices Built on 14-Nanometer FinFET Technology

Limitations in current solutions such as energy usage and design flexibility are at the heart of stakes.
The Exynos 7Dual 7270 features full connectivity and LTE modem integration. The Exynos 7270 aims to offer great power savings, 4G LTE modem and full connectivity solution integration, as well as innovative packaging technology optimized for wearable devices
Powered by two Cortex®-A53 cores, the Exynos 7270 integrates Cat.4 LTE 2CA modem, the new AP allows wearables to connect to a cellular service as a stand-alone device. Embedded WiFi and Bluetooth connectivity combines integrated connectivity capabilities support FM (frequency modulation) radio, and location-based services with GNSS (global navigation satellite system) solutions.

The connected data platforms architecture approach at Hortonworks

I can observe that, as part of the connected data platforms architecture approach, Hortonworks has added new capabilities in Hortonworks Data Platform (HDP) 2.5 to deliver on the security, governance, and access requirements for connected data workloads
According to Hortonworks, these capabilities include Dynamic Security and Governance to allow enterprises to classify and assign metadata tags, which enable various access policies to be enforced; Enhanced Streaming Analytics capabilities to enable machine learning and actionable intelligence in modern data application; Enterprise Apache Spark at Scale (Apache Spark 2.0 technical preview) to deliver agile analytic capabilities for data scientists around the globe;  and Apache Hive with LLAP (technical preview) enables as fast as sub-second SQL analytics on Hadoop to help ensure enhanced performance for large data sets.

Virtual Reality Solution for Researchers and Trainers to Address Implicit Bias

At the core of stakes, we have creation of immersive, interactive VR experience that can be combined with training and discussion.
In effect, SPACES has introduced the new implicit bias VR program that can be used by both scientific researchers, corporate trainers and law-enforcement organizations; when it comes to reduce the impact of implicit bias, the measurable, objective attitudes and stereotypes that everyone carries.

VR is enabling us to understand how implicit bias affects our views of the world and the way we work and interact with others,” said SPACES CEO Shiraz Akmal. Image by SPACES.

Water networks + SCADA systems in smart cities

Based on the realities that, the global population expands, and that, demand for clean water becomes a concern and can affect natural water resources, Cities are adopting smart water management systems, based on ICT, to save water resources for the future. Technology can help supply systems to provide purified water in a cost-efficient manner.
In effect, integrated information systems to control the water operation processare used. These integrated information management system sends real-time data to operators to track and monitor the water supply process. The data is collected from SCADA systems that are linked to geographic information systems, and integrated with enterprise resource planning systems
Water networks in smart cities are geared with automated control systems and information technologies (such as big data, analytics, and information management systems). For the informational purpose only, I can recall that, Siemens and Schneider Electric are providing smart water netwo…

Smart building +3D printing technology

For those who are unfamiliar, certain aspects of smart city include: smart security, smart infrastructure, smart energy, smart governance, smart education, smart building, smart healthcare, and smart mobility. 
Smart building solutions for instance, help cities, companies, and citizens to reduce the estimated 40% of energy consumed by buildings worldwide
On this momentum, 3D printing technology has gained huge popularity with the rapid evolution of Internet of Things (IoT). In 2015, approximately 0.2 million 3D printers were sold worldwide to enterprises, according to Technavio.

Barcelona, Spain, as one of the best among smart cities worldwide

Expectations, findings, predictions around smart city as concept or technologies are on exciting curve that draws multiple attentions. 
According to the latest market study released by Technavio, the global smart city market is expected to reach USD 1.45 trillion by 2020, growing at a CAGR of almost 20%.
Barcelona, Spain is considered to be one of the best among smart cities worldwide. It includes almost all the aspects of a smart city, including a new bus network, electric vehicles, smart traffic lights, Wi-Fi, smart city campus, radars project, waste management, and fabrication laboratories.
