Cognitive computing is a next generation information system

For many analysts, Cognitive computing is a next generation information system. The technology can understand, reason, learn, and interact with humans in natural language. While traditional analytics can provide data-based insights, cognitive computing turns these insights into actionable recommendations. A new IDC spending guide found global spending on cognitive platforms will climb from around USD 3 billion in 2016 to more than USD 31 billion by 2019.

The need for processors capable of running multiple industrial Ethernet protocols

For those who are unfamiliar, the need for processors capable of running multiple industrial Ethernet protocols, such as PROFINET, POWERLINK, EtherCAT, Ethernet/IP, and SERCOS, have increased in order to achieve the objectives of smart manufacturing. These processors are used in an industrial robot's communication modules, to enable easy monitoring and controlling of robots and attain seamless connectivity between fieldbuses and control solutions in both the process and discrete industries.

Intel Quark SoC is the best example of low-cost architecture designed for IoT in industries

Steadily, one can observe that,the need to develop new micro-architectures, advanced silicon manufacturing process, next-generation platforms, and new solutions is increasing among all the industries. According to Technavio Research; Intel Quark SoC is the best example of low-cost architecture designed for IoT in industries.

The benefits of manufacturing process technology

For those who are unfamiliar, the benefits of manufacturing process technology include optimizing space per transistor, which reduces the heat output per transistor and increases the number of integrated features on each chip. According to Technavio Research, Intel has announced an investment of USD 7 billion to establish a next-generation semiconductor factory in Arizona, where it aims to develop 7nm manufacturing process technology.

The most exciting regarding the Global Industrial IoT Chipsets Market

Overall, analysis regarding the Global industrial IoT (IIoT) chipsets market is very positive; predicting the CAGR of over 30% during the forecast period, 2017-2021.
Technavio analysts highlight the following three factors that are contributing to the growth of the global industrial IoT chipsets market: Increasing amount of data generation due to IIoT Increasing demand for processors that can run multiple Ethernet protocols Demand for developing next generation manufacturing process technology.

Cybersecurity alongside transport operators

Very interesting to see that, digitization and mass connectivity are changing the face of transportation.
ABI Research believes all modes are undergoing profound change to optimize transport, cut costs, and enable an automated and connected service-based industry.

For those who are unfamiliar, Industrial control systems (ICS) play a heavy role in transportation systems and connecting these operational technologies (OT) will require stakeholders to develop and implement adapted cybersecurity technologies.

Evidence shows that, while the transportation sector places heavy reliance on functional safety and physical security, the cyber protection of connected OT is currently inadequate and will require some significant work.

Therefore, transport stakeholders will have to implement digital security if they want to successfully realize the efficiencies and cost savings that connected OT promises to deliver.
In effect, this will require anticipation and planning, and collaboration between cybersec…

Adoption of Technology within the healthcare industry

The stakes are huge; as the healthcare industry need streamlined reforms. The need is there, but Healthcare organizations face a set of issues in adopting new technologies that stem from a lack of support and understanding both from within their organizations but also from technology suppliers. ABI Research finds that, technologies under consideration range from connected medical devices to renewable energy management, and a focus on improving patient services and operating efficiency drives this adoption.
