Lack of Technology Standards Presents Significant Cost Issues in Travel Industry
Open-Stand, May 11th, 2016

Have you ever purchased an airline ticket or booked hotel reservations through an online travel agency (OTA)? The speed and convenience through which a business trip or vacation can be scheduled using online services were a welcome surprise for those of us who remember the hassle of arranging such accommodations in a pre-web era. Still, the convenience offered by OTA’s does not come without a cost…

IoT Security Standards – Paving the Way For Customer Confidence
Standards University February 29, 2016
With the opening of the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, the IoT has moved beyond the initial hype phase and even past the phase of early deployments into what I call the “parental awareness phase”. That is to say, my parents, both of whom…

The Council on Extended Intelligence (CXI) – Resisting Reductionism

by Guest Contributor| Fri, 13 Jul 2018

“Instead of thinking about machine intelligence in terms of humans vs. machines, we should consider the system that integrates humans and machines—not artificial intelligence, but extended intelligence.” – Joi Ito, Resisting Reduction: A Manifesto.   Technology is evolving and expanding at a profound rate, giving rise to new innovations with the potential to either fundamentally elevate

Embracing a Future with Extended Intelligence

by Guest Contributor| Fri, 22 Jun 2018

I first met John Havens at an Aspen Institute Roundtable to discuss the future of artificial intelligence. I had always pictured IEEE as a place where engineers hammered out practical technical standards and published rigorous academic journals so I was surprised—and excited—to find him advocating the importance of ethics in autonomous and intelligent systems in such a nuanced and inclusive way. Soon, we had drafted the beginning of the Global Council on Extended Intelligence (CXI) and its mandate: to ensure that these tools benefit people and the planet, make our systems more robust and resilient, and don’t reinforce negative systemic biases.

Optical Data Network Backbone for Autonomous Driving

by Guest Contributor| Wed, 06 Jun 2018

For safety-related functions such as the data network backbone, autonomous driving requires redundant systems. The objective of this redundancy is to increase safety and avoid the autonomous car being locked if the backbone is disabled in some way. The second backbone may be optical as well, or even copper-based. Reliability analysis shows the highest reliability
