Optoelectronic microprocessors built using existing chip manufacturing

High-performance prototype means chipmakers could now start building optoelectronic chips. Using only processes found in existing microchip fabrication facilities, researchers at MIT, the University of California at Berkeley, and the University of Colorado have produced a working optoelectronic microprocessor, which computes electronically but uses light to move information. Optical communication could dramatically reduce chips’ power…

Robo-advising, Rise of the Machines

Over the last several decades industrial robots have made leaps and bounds moving into all sorts of domains including surgery. Similarly with the ability to gather and analyse data at a massive scale a new form of robotic analytics is coming into its own.
