Nec Flying Car Puts Drone Air Traffic Control To The Test

NEC Flying Car Puts Drone Air Traffic Control To The Test

It was a bit surprising to see a company like NEC prominently featuring a car-size drone on its CEATEC 2019 booth, so we stopped by to check things up.

And no, NEC isn’t going to jump in the drone transportation market, at least, not by producing drones. This prototype is built to test a drone Air Traffic Control System developed by NEC.

NEC To Use Biometrics To Streamline Security At The Tokyo 2020 Olympics

#CEATEC2018 – One of the ways to verify someone’s identify and a way that is commonly used today is to ask for an ID card. The problem with such a system is that people might forget to bring their IDs, or IDs can be easily faked, and not to mention the time it takes for someone to take their ID out of their bags, wallets, or purses can slow down the entire process.

Nec Accelerates Machine Learning For Vector Computers

NEC accelerates machine learning for vector computers by more than 50 times in comparison to Spark technologies - FareastgizmosNEC has developed a data processing technology that accelerates the execution of machine learning on vector computers by more than 50 times in comparison to Spark technologies. This newly developed data processing utilizes computing and communications technologies that leverage “sparse matrix” data structures in order to significantly accelerate the performance of vector computers in machine learning. NEC has developed middleware that incorporates sparse matrix structures in order to simplify the use of machine learning. As a result, users are able to easily launch this middleware from Python or Spark infrastructures, which are commonly used for data analysis, without special programming.

NEC’s next-generation vector computer is being developed to flexibly meet a wide range of price and performance needs. This data processing technology expands the capabilities of next-generation vector computers to include large-scale data analysis, such as machine learning, in addition to numerical calculation, the conventional specialty of vector computers. NEC will introduce this technology on July 5 at the International Symposium on Parallel and Distributed Computing 2017 (ISPDC-2017) held in Innsbruck, Austria, from Monday, July 3 to Thursday, July 6.

Nec And K-opticom Successfully Trial System Combining Virtualization Technology With 10g-epon

NEC and K-Opticom successfully trial system combining virtualization technology with 10G-EPONNEC and Netcracker Technology have today successfully conducted a trial, in collaboration with K-Opticom, for a system combining Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) and 10G-Ethernet Passive Optical Network (EPON) technologies. The trial verified for the first time ever that virtualized Customer Premises Equipment (vCPE) can be successfully applied to 10Gbps Internet connections. K-Opticom is a leading provider of telecommunications services based on its independent optical fiber network. The company operates the “mineo” mobile phone service as a Mobile Virtual Network Operator (MVNO), and “eo denki,” an electric power retailing service for household use.

Nec's Video Face Recognition Technology Ranks First In Nist Testing

NEC's Video Face Recognition Technology Ranks First in NIST TestingNEC's face acknowledgment innovation accomplished the most noteworthy execution assessment in the current Face in Video Evaluation testing performed by the U.S. National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). Video confront acknowledgment innovation recognizes the characteristics of moving subjects continuously as they walk normally without halting before a camera. To accomplish dependable face acknowledgment of a video picture, NEC created highlight point extraction innovation that empowers upgraded confront acknowledgment to a level where an individual can be related to high exactness from inside a gathering, regardless of the possibility that their face is in part covered up, or the picture is taken from various angles.
