Electronic devices are becoming smaller, more connected, and more powerful; and they still have one thing in common: they need energy to function. Even miniature implantable medical devices and remote Internet-of-Things sensors need some amount of power to run, making it a challenge to design equally small, efficient, and durable batteries for them.


One of the alternatives that could potentially be the answer to these problems is the “betavoltaic cell.” These cells are a type of power source akin to photovoltaic cells that, instead of producing an electric current by capturing visible or ultraviolet light, creates electricity using a type of radiation (beta decay) generated internally by a radioactive material. The biggest issue with existing betavoltaic cells is their low conversion efficiency. This means that only a

Can entanglement make communication safer?

Scientists say they are a step closer to developing a secure internet after unveiling a prototype of what they believe is the largest quantum communication network of its kind.

Writing in the journal Science, they say it can simultaneously connect at least eight users across 17 kilometres while avoiding the risks and hardware requirements inherent in previous designs.

It has a range wide enough to serve as a city-wide system, says lead author Siddarth Joshi from the University of Bristol, UK, with simulations showing its architecture can be extended to 32 users.

Secure quantum networks require “keys” to decode transmitted data.  If hackers intervene hacker, signs of interference occur, with errors created in what is received by the legitimate parties.

To scale this technology beyond two users, many networks rely on “trusted nodes”, which have access to the key information. This compromises security, however, and is costly, which has

A New Twist On Industry 4.0

Gilles Muys is the VP of Customer Solutions at Simplus and an experienced executive.

If the Fourth Industrial Revolution needed the means to accelerate innovation, Covid-19 was the gas pedal. Known as Industry 4.0, this phase of epic change and innovation refers to the evolving changes to our workflows using the Internet of Things and a combination of cyber-physical systems.

The rapid transition to a new normal in business is credited often to the Covid-19 pandemic. But Industry 4.0 was already making its way into the workplace as intuitive technologies integrated and often defined daily human habits, with examples like smartphones, wearables, 3D printing and customized online shopping.

As of July 30, all U.S. states are in some phase of reopening albeit at varying levels. But reopening business during these uncertain times has hastened many companies in all industries to rely on technology connected to Industry 4.0 as they

Remote-Work Technology Fuels M&A Activity During Pandemic

Technology ventures that are developing software for videoconferencing, collaboration and e-commerce tools are becoming hot acquisition targets for large companies and investors during the pandemic.

Lifesize Inc., a videoconferencing software company based in Austin, Texas, in August announced a deal to purchase collaboration-tool maker Kaptivo, citing a growing demand for remote-work apps. Lifesize itself was acquired by Marlin Equity Partners in March. The terms of the deals weren’t disclosed.

“We see a long-term step change in the usage of remote-collaboration tools for both business and education,” said Peter Spasov, Marlin’s senior managing director. Mr. Spasov said the acquisitions of Lifesize and Kaptivo “capitalize on that trend.”

Miro Parizek, principal partner for technology at M&A advisory firm Hampleton Partners, said Covid-19 is reshaping workplace practices, following lockdowns and travel restrictions.

He said the shift to remote work over the past few months—in some cases marking a permanent change—has refocused the sights

Understanding conversational technology through the evolution of communication

Since the beginning of time, we’ve developed various forms of communication. From non-verbal cues such as eye contact and facial expressions to modern methods of remote chat such as Slack and WhatsApp, communication continues to evolve. And just as the way we communicate has evolved over time, so have the methods we use in our communication— writing a letter has advanced into sending an email, and picking up the phone to talk to a friend has evolved into answering a FaceTime call.

Today, conversational technology is widely considered one of the most effective ways for an organization to offer 24/7 support to customers. With the rise of communication tools, the terms “virtual assistant” and “chatbot” have recently become buzzwords in the tech industry. But ask 10 people what a virtual assistant or chatbot is, and you’ll likely get 10 different answers. Some people use these terms interchangeably when talking about
