SOFTWARE/HARDWARE:Invention Machine announced the availability of Invention Machine Goldfire 6.0 with integrated collaboration and expert identification technologies to further accelerate product innovation. The new software automatically identifies and connects innovation workers with domain experts, delivers solutions immediately and measures company-wide innovation initiatives and trends in real time. It also empowers the community with precise innovation intelligence by leveraging undocumented expertise from problem-sharing dialogues, then captures and processes those discussions as reusable corporate assets. Goldfire 6.0 is designed to increase productivity between 5 to 30 percent, accelerate every day innovation activities and deliver cutting-edge products quickly.
Invention Machine has added new content to Goldfire, the innovation intelligence platform. Users can now access patents from local authorities in France, Germany, Japan and the U.K. and also take advantage of Goldfire’s intra-lingual capability to read the summaries in their own languages. In addition, more than 18 million citations from PubMed’s 5,200 biomedical journals were added to Goldfire and 3.5 million documents from 1,100 deep websites were pre-indexed, making it easier for users to tap into additional innovation intelligence.
Goldfire drives and sustains the innovation process by helping global manufacturers transform ideas into market leading products, efficiently and economically. The platform combines proven innovation workflows and collaboration capabilities with precise access to corporate and external knowledge. This unique software empowers innovators so they can deliver the right products the first time, validate and rank the right ideas, and streamline the ideas to productization process.
The increased adoption of wireless technology for mission-critical applications has revved up the global market for dynamic electronic general purpose (GP) test equipment. As the link between cloud networks and devices -- smartphones, tablets, and notebooks -- results in more complex devices under test, the demand for radio frequency test equipment is starting to intensify.
Much of the research on lithium-ion batteries is focused on how to make the batteries charge more quickly and last longer than they currently do, work that would significantly improve the experience of mobile device users, as well EV and hybrid car drivers. Researchers in Singapore have come up with what seems like the best solution so far -- a battery that can recharge itself in mere minutes and has a potential lifespan of 20 years.
Some humanoid walking robots are also good at running, balancing, and coordinated movements in group settings. Several of our sports robots have won regional or worldwide acclaim in the RoboCup soccer World Cup, or FIRST Robotics competitions. Others include the world's first hockey-playing robot and a trash-talking Scrabble player.
