Why Your Organization Should Join the IEEE Standards Association

In our pilot study, we draped a thin, flexible electrode array over the surface of the volunteer’s brain. The electrodes recorded neural signals and sent them to a speech decoder, which translated the signals into the words the man intended to say. It was the first time a paralyzed person who couldn’t speak had used … Read more

Attendance at IEEE’s STEM Summer Camp Breaks Records

In our pilot study, we draped a thin, flexible electrode array over the surface of the volunteer’s brain. The electrodes recorded neural signals and sent them to a speech decoder, which translated the signals into the words the man intended to say. It was the first time a paralyzed person who couldn’t speak had used … Read more

Craig Partridge Is Still Working to Improve Internet Traffic

Getting those customers would require abandoning the company’s mechanical inertial-sensor systems in favor of a new, unproven quartz technology, miniaturizing the quartz sensors, and turning a manufacturer of tens of thousands of expensive sensors a year into a manufacturer of millions of cheaper ones. Madni led an all-hands push to make that happen—and succeeded beyond … Read more

The core protocol of the Internet, aptly named the Internet Protocol (IP), defines an addressing scheme that computers use to communicate with one another. This scheme assigns addresses to specific devices—people’s computers as well as servers—and uses those addresses to send data between them as needed. It’s a model that works well for sending unique … Read more

Whether it’s the phenomenon of “quiet quitting” or stories of employees outsourcing their jobs, everything suggests that the pandemic may have helped workers feel empowered to expect and ask for more because they’ve experienced flexibility firsthand and found … Read more

Make IEEE Your Home Base

And yet even now, after 150 years of development, the sound we hear from even a high-end audio system falls far short of what we hear when we are physically present at a live music performance. At such an event, we are in a natural sound field and can readily perceive that the sounds of … Read more

In his five years as IEEE’s executive director and chief operating officer, Stephen Welby has led the organization through a global pandemic, a changing publishing landscape, and soaring geopolitical tensions. Welby, an IEEE Fellow, is leaving at the end of the year to spend more time with his family while he explores his career options. … Read more

Ensuring Underwater Robots Survive in Hot Tropical Waters

The hot, humid environment of tropical marine areas such as Australia’s Great Barrier Reef can wreak havoc on the marine autonomous systems. Underwater and surface MAS are used for marine monitoring, locating objects such as mines on the seafloor, and rescuing swimmers. “Tropical conditions can cause systems to overheat or prevent high-density lithium batteries from … Read more
