IRIS participating in ICIEMPM 2016 Congress

Dr. David F. Nettleton, of IRIS Advanced Engineering, will be presenting a paper entitled “Towards Automatic Calibration of In-line Machine Processes”, in the 18th International Conference on Industrial Engineering and Manufacturing Process Modeling (ICIEMPM 2016), in London, July 28-29. The paper is also co-authored by Dr. Elodie Bugnicourt (IRIS), Christian Wasiak (IPT Fraunhofer) and Alejandro Rosales (IRIS). The presentation of the work in this congress forms a part of the activities to create awareness of the OpenMind EU2020 project. The objective of the OpenMind project is to produce customized medical devices by realising a new in situ production chain based[...]

Here come the Dragons! …and this is not a Game of Thrones.

After reading ‘Building Dragons’ by Daniel Newman (with Olivier Blanchard), I am fascinated with Dragons (and that’s coming from someone who has never seen an episode of Game of Thrones :-) ). The dragons I am referring to are an emerging breed of established or mature companies that ‘continue to leverage their original start-up mentality to systematically innovate their way to profitability’. Unlike Unicorns- elite technology start-ups that are ‘valued at’ $1 billion or more-, Dragons are companies that have already proven their profitability in the market and are attaining new heights of success thanks to ‘purposeful reinvention, scalable market[...]

Tiny but full of promises (last episode): the prospects of nanotechnology in automotive

While nanocars (single-molecule vehicle of hundreds atoms that incorporates a chassis, axles and freely rotating fullurene wheels and can be propelled across a gold surface by an electric current or heat) were invented in 2005 by Rice University, nano-enhanced cars are already among us! The current automotive industry's driving factors are to decrease vehicles fuel consumption and environmental impact while improving passengers’ safety and comfort. After focusing on solar energy and packaging, let’s see now how nanotechnology can help us having better cars! The prospects are both in bulk (nanocomposites) and in surface (application of nano-structured coatings or nanolayers). Although[...]

Marie Curie funded VALOWASTE: Relevance to agrofood industries, environment and society

The agrofood industry produces high amounts of solid and liquid wastes, most of it being considered as contaminants, and hence increasingly banned for disposal according to the more stringent EC Directives. Importantly, such waste matrices from the agrofood sector are frequently rich in substances having high-added value that can be recovered directly or can represent a zero- or low-cost substrate for biochemical processes aimed at bioproducts of potential commercial interest. This concept of valorisation is fast gaining importance due to the alarming rate of depletion of natural resources, the economic stress on water bodies and raw materials, rising greenhouse gas[...]

From Small Data to Big Data (and everything in between)

Reportedly, the first census was carried out in Egypt in 3508 BC, being motivated for reasons such as tax collection, a headcount for military service and maybe pyramid building. Thus, the Egyptians had a clear idea of why they wanted to collect the data and make such a logistic effort in doing so. A large number of scribes (see above figure), who were highly qualified workers freed from manual labour tasks, transferred the information onto (recyclable) papyrus in hieroglyphic (pictogram) form. By modern standards, the Egyptians did not really have a big data problem, because the census was carried out[...]
