Shelly Palmer: Can Self-Driving Cars Ever Really Be Safe?
LinkedIn - April 16, 2017 - Analysts estimate that by 2030, self-driving cars and trucks (autonomous vehicles) could account for as much as 60 percent of US auto sales. That's great! But autonomous vehicles are basically computers on wheels, and computers crash all the time. Besides that, computers get hacked every day. So you gotta ask, "Can self-driving cars ever really be safe?" No. Self-driving cars can never really be safe. They will be safer! So much safer that it's worth a few minutes to understand why.

U.S. Air Force, Lockheed Martin Demonstrate Manned/Unmanned Teaming with an experimental F-16 aircraft
Palmdale, Calif., USA - April 10, 2017 - Lockheed Martin (NYSE: LMT) Skunk Works, the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL), U.S. Air Force Test Pilot School and Calspan Corporation successfully demonstrated manned/unmanned teaming to improve combat efficiency and effectiveness for the warfighter. During the flight demonstration, an experimental F-16 aircraft acted as a surrogate Unmanned Combat Air Vehicle (UCAV) autonomously reacting to a dynamic threat environment during an air-to-ground strike mission. The experimental F-16 autonomously flew in formation with a lead aircraft and conducted a ground-attack mission, then automatically rejoined the lead aircraft after the mission was completed. These capabilities were linked with Lockheed Martin automatic collision avoidance systems to ensure safe, coordinated teaming between the F-16 and surrogate UCAV.

deepsense.io helps improve the UK's satellite defence and security intelligence
Palo Alto, CA, USA and Warsaw, Poland - March 23, 2017 - The deepsense.io team makes a significant contribution to the satellite imagery project hosted at Kaggle.com aimed at increasing the efficiency of the decision-making process for the UK's defence and security. The Defence Science and Technology Laboratory (Dstl), a UK government agency, recently hosted a competition to identify and categorize objects in satellite imagery. Dstl provided 1 km x 1 km satellite images and the challenging task was to detect different types of objects, such as buildings, vehicles, trees or roads located in various environments. Users had to find an algorithm or develop software that would help evaluate large and complex data sets in an innovative manner.

Deutsche Telekom at CeBIT 2017: Narrowband radio combats bee mortality
Hannover, Germany - March 21, 2017 - Timotheus Höttges, Chief Executive Officer of Deutsche Telekom, is today presenting to Chancellor Angela Merkel, as part of her traditional CeBIT tour, a technology that can help beekeepers protect their bees. The narrowband wireless technology NB-IoT (Narrowband Internet of Things) transmits the data collected by intelligent sensors, straight from the beehive to the beekeeper. This data includes temperature, air humidity, air pressure, beehive weight and activity of the bees. The beekeeper simply needs to look at their smartphone or tablet app to find out whether their bees are healthy. A beehive is the world's smallest industrial plant with 40,000 workers on half a square meter. As with Industry 4.0, sensors and Narrowband-IoT continually monitor and provide timely assistance before a bee colony is damaged. NB-IoT already offers a wide range of possibilities and the technology is being further developed rapidly.
