As a constructive criticism, it would be helpul toshow for each bullet, the talking points being discussed. Coming from a classical bkground, I'm trying to picture the ladder during the several minutes that the topic is being discussed... looking at only the highlighted topic. When we get to a meatty slide, Max says it is too complicated and moves on. Other times I'm staring at a pretty box for several minutes while the guts of the box is what I'm trying to picture. Also, I like my achronyms defined in print at least once. Sometimes the presentation appears at a very high level, good for the boardroom, less so for practitioners. Every sentence had an "ah". Having said all that, I'm grateful for the program. ggg
For industrial control applications, or even a simple assembly line, that machine can go almost 24/7 without a break. But what happens when the task is a little more complex? That’s where the “smart” machine would come in. The smart machine is one that has some simple (or complex in some cases) processing capability to be able to adapt to changing conditions. Such machines are suited for a host of applications, including automotive, aerospace, defense, medical, computers and electronics, telecommunications, consumer goods, and so on. This discussion will examine what’s possible with smart machines, and what tradeoffs need to be made to implement such a solution.
