The Embedded Insiders' Initial Thoughts on Embedded World and a Return to Analog Computing

February 13, 2020 Brandon Lewis

Embedded World 2020 is right around the corner, and the Insiders spend a few minutes forecasting what they expect to see at the show. Some of the main themes they expect are an increased integration of AI and IoT technologies and smarter edge computing nodes based on those technologies. They then get into a semantic disagreement around what constitutes "the edge" and where AI processing will truly take place.

Continuing with the topic of AI, the two interview Tom Doyle of Aspinity. The three discuss how analog computing is making a comeback as an ultra-efficient way of pre-processing signals in neural networking applications (Editor's note: More on analog computing can be found on the website).

Finally, Jean Labrosse is back with more "Things That Annoy a Veteran Software Engineer, where he rants about the lack of spaces in most code.

Tune in for more.
