“Robot” is a Czech word meaning “assistant” or “worker.” For nearly 100 years, people have been perfecting robots for applications as diverse as industrial assembly, food preparation, household assistance and autonomous vehicles for land, sea and air.
Most robots are designed to automate the execution of a dirty, dull, dangerous or difficult task. They have built-in intelligence and are capable of working on their own or with minimal human intervention.
Mixed reality (XR) experiences like virtual meetings with holographic telepresence were once relegated to science fiction, but are now becoming a reality. This is due to the convergence of technologies like our recently-announced Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ XR2 5G Platform, and new perception technologies that mimic how humans gain awareness and capture non-verbal communications (e.g., facial expressions and body language).
The lifecycle of traditional software is arguably quite straight forward. At its simplest, you develop, test, and deploy the software, and then release a new version with features, updates, and/or fixes as needed.
Effective healthcare systems rely on a variety of testing and diagnostic tools to detect illnesses and provide the best possible outcomes for patients. One such tool is molecular diagnostics, a state-of-the-art practice that uses DNA for early diagnosis of disease infections. Traditionally, the practice of molecular diagnostics has been limited to centralized laboratories equipped with complex infrastructure, skilled lab technicians, and specialized storage.
