“Replicator” – the new 3D bioprinter

It was nicknamed after a similar machine appeared in Star Trek, but this “replicator” creates neitherice water nor pan-fried fish on demand.

For replicator, numerous two dimensional images are captured from a three dimensional object, to be compilated into a video sequence.

As the “printing” process begins, the video sequence is played over the projector, shining onto the cylinder which sets into a spinning motion.

As early as 2000s, scientists had ventured into thepotential of 3D printing to reproduce organs and tissues, to overcome the shortage in donations experienced worldwide.

3D bioprinting is believed to lower the cost of making certain surgical devices and ensure their access in remotes areas.

In the long run,artificial intelligence (AI) may give replicator a more segmentize insights into various tissues and organs in great extent, for more accurate printing to take place.

HP sees 3D printing potential in transforming APAC manufacturing

3D printing has the potential to bring about savings in labour and smarten up logistics in Asia, but it will require a rethink of the entire manufacturing process--from design to product delivery.

If properly harnessed, the technology can enable on-demand production, enabling components to be printed only when needed, and consume less material to build a complete product.  3D printing already is seeing robust growth globally including Southeast Asia, said Koh Kong Meng, HP Inc's Southeast Asia Korea managing director, but he declined to provide specific growth figures for the region.

A consulting firm in Japan, for instance, is assessing the use of the technology to facilitate the printing of spare parts, for the automotive and consumer electronics markets, only when they are needed by the customer.  Pointing to its potential in China and Singapore, he said the Singapore government had put in place its 'smart manufacturing' or 'Industry 4.0' plans, which aimed to develop an advanced manufacturing ecosystem that combined machines with technologies such as data analytics and AI to create a 'smart factory'.  However, Koh noted, a rethink of the entire manufacturing processing would be required to support such efforts.

In addition, he said, product customisation could be easily offered for free with 3D printing, compared to traditional production.  He noted that through the partnership with NTU, HP hoped to help build up the necessary capabilities in the industry and train a next generation of engineers 'to think in 3D'.  Apart from 3D, HP also is betting on the A3 copier market for growth.  Koh said its 2017 acquisition of Samsung Electronics' printer business for US$1.05 billion had significantly boosted its market footprint in Southeast Asia, pushing its A3 market share to 10 percent, up from its previous single-digit figure.  Noting that the global A3 market was worth an estimated US$55 billion, he said such acquisitions helped pave the way for HP to address this space, where it previously neither had the products nor intellectual property to do so.

Artificial Intelligence Device Identifies Objects at the Speed of Light

Numerous devices in everyday life use computerized cameras to identify objects — think of automated teller machines that can “read” handwritten dollar amounts when you deposit a check, or Internet search engines that can quickly match photos to other similar images in their databases.

But those systems rely on a piece of equipment to image the object, first by “seeing” it with a camera or optical sensor, then processing what it sees into data, and finally using computing programs to figure out what it is.

Researchers have created a physical artificial neural network — a device modeled on how the human brain works — that can analyze large volumes of data and identify objects at the actual speed of light.

With a device based on the system, the car would “read” the sign as soon as the light from the sign hits it, as opposed to having to wait for the car's camera to image the object and then use its computers to figure out what the object is.

It could be scaled up to enable new camera designs and unique optical components that work passively in medical technologies, robotics, security, or any application where image and video data are essential.

The researchers then trained the network using a computer to identify the objects in front of it by learning the pattern of diffracted light each object produces as the light from that object passes through the device.

2019 tech forecast: From 5G and 3D printing to smart speakers

5G, AI, 3D printing, radio, TV and smart speakers are just some of the trends tipped for the coming year by Deloitte in its 'TMT Predictions 2019' report on what's in store in the technology, media and telecommunications sectors.

The report states that 5G will bring faster communications and will provide hundredfold increases in traffic capacity and network efficiency compared with 4G, paving the way for new uses to go mainstream, such as streaming in very high resolutions or connected and autonomous vehicle technology.

Betting on sports broadcastingDespite tough competition from the likes of Netflix, regular TV still has plenty of appeal, particularly thanks to sports broadcasting, buoyed by the success of online betting platforms.

Sales of enterprise 3D printers, materials and services from large public companies are predicted to exceed $2.7 billion in 2019 and top $3 billion in 2020, growing 12.5% annually each year.
