Here is what has enabled the use of motion sensing technology

Steadily, one can observe that, the advancement of global lifestyle has resulted in the need for equipment with greater ease of usage. For many analysts, this has enabled the use of motion sensing technology, which extensively uses inertial sensors. According to Research and Markets, this technology has become a key driving factor in this market, and it is expected to continue to play an important role in defining the trend for the next few years.

Here is where an inertial navigation system

For those who are unfamiliar, an inertial navigation system is used at a massive scale in the fields of aerospace and defense sector. It combines various sensors like gyroscopes, accelerometers and computers to analyze the information and give the accurate estimates of position, velocity and other parameters of a body in motion, without any external reference. They are used in spacecraft, guided missiles, submarines, etc.

Fundamental artificial intelligence (AI) research

Very exciting to discover that, IBM plan plans to make a 10-year, $240 million investment to create the MIT–IBM Watson AI Lab in partnership with MIT. One can learn that, the lab will carry out fundamental artificial intelligence (AI) research and seek to propel scientific breakthroughs that unlock the potential of AI. According to IBM, the collaboration aims to advance AI hardware, software and algorithms related to deep learning and other areas, increase AI’s impact on industries, such as health care and cybersecurity, and explore the economic and ethical implications of AI on society. The firm also reveals that, the new lab will be one of the largest long-term university-industry AI collaborations to date, mobilizing the talent of more than 100 AI scientists, professors, and students to pursue joint research at IBM's Research Lab in Cambridge, co-located with the IBM Watson Health and IBM Security headquarters in Kendall Square, in Cambridge, Massachusetts, and on the neighborin…
