The Postbus smartshuttle is a 100% electric powered and self driving mini bus. The bus can hold up to 11 people. The shuttle is currently in operation in Switzerland. The vehicle will stop itself to prevent it from running over people. It is developped in a cooperation between the French company Navya, Bestmile and the Swiss Carpostal system.
Around the year 2000, the convergence on Linux and commodity x86_64 processors provided a homogeneous scientific computing platform which enabled the construction of the Worldwide LHC Computing Grid (WLCG) for LHC data processing. This allowed the High Energy Physics (HEP) community to use a homogeneous software model utilizing the x86_64 architecture. LHC experiments at CERN, in particular ATLAS and CMS, started investigating ARMv8 64-bit (AArch64) architecture for HEP needs. A journey which started in 2013. The LHC community faces a great challenge regarding computing needs in 10 years and has started exploring public clouds, volunteer computing (e.g., LHC@home) and HPC facilities to increase peak computation capacity. This talk will contain information about future (a timeline of 10 years) computation needs for LHC experiments and the more recent progress done by ATLAS, CernVM and CMS teams on using ARMv8 64-bit/AArch64.

Filmed at SID’s Displayweek 2017, we got to see CLEARink’s monochrome, color and video displays. This was the first public demo of this technology which originated at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, Canada. Company is aiming for applications which require all the benefits of ePaper along with mass producible color and full motion video. They have commenced trial manufacturing at a LCD fab and hope to derive benefits of a fully depreciated factory. I interviewed their vp of marketing, Sri who has been in the display industry for decades. I also posted my interview with CLEARink's CEO here.
Standard Graphene shows their water filtering system using their graphene layer to help filter river water for it to be fully fresh drinkable, they are talking to the Vietnamese and Cambodian Government and talking with UNICEF to bring this to Africa. Standard Graphene also shows some of their other latest demonstrations featuring their graphene at the right price and at the right quantity. They are showing a 5kg ultra-light bicycle infused with graphene allows to increase 130% strength on the bicycle. Also bringing their technology to the automotive and later also to space industry.
