VESA Focuses on VR, AR

VESA Focuses on VR, AR

The Video Electronics Standards Group (VESA) forms a special interest group (SIG) to address the standards covering the virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) markets.

As the creator of multiple display standards, such as DisplayPort, Embedded DisplayPort (eDP), EDID and DisplayID, VESA should be well positioned to investigate AR/VR compatability issues. Currently the industry lacks a standard covering head-mounted displays and eyeglasses, leading to increasing confusion and complexity for both developers and customers, impeding broader acceptance of such products.

The VESA AR/VR SIG is open to both VESA members and non-members, and will discuss the needs of all ecosystem players, namely headset makers, glass makers, and other types of providers. The SIG will work with other VESA task groups and other standards organisations to build a "robust ecosystem," starting from physical connections, data transfer protocols, software drivers and application layers.

Gartner: Organisations Not Prepared for EU Data Regulation

According to Gartner the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will have a global impact once it goes into effect on 25 May 2018-- and over 50% of companies will not comply with it.

"The GDPR will affect not only EU-based organisations, but many data controllers and processors outside the EU as well," the analyst states. "Threats of hefty fines, as well as the increasingly empowered position of individual data subjects tilt the business case for compliance and should cause decision makers to re-evaluate measures to safely process personal data."

IDC: EMEA Traditional PC Market Returns to Growth

The traditional PC market (desktops, notebooks and workstations) continues to stabilise in Q1 2017, IDC reports-- shipments show "modest" 1.6% Y-o-Y growth, reaching 17.4 million units.

Notebooks show the strongest performance, growing by 8.9% Y-o-Y across EMEA with 9.2% growth in W. Europe and 8.3% in CEMA. Commercial notebooks are up by 18.6% in CEMA and 11.2% in W. Europe, the result of a push to avoid price increases and favourable exchange rates against the dollar, while consumer notebooks are up by 8.1% in CEMA and 7.5% in W. Europe thanks to previous quarter backlogs.

Desktop shipments are still on the decline however, as EMEA shipments are down by -12% Y-o-Y.

The Elon Musk Plan to Connect Brains to the Cloud!

The Elon Musk Plan to Connect Brains to the Cloud!

Tesla and SpaceX founder Elon Musk announces his latest venture-- Neuralink, a startup with the lofty ambition to develop technology able to connect human brains to the cloud.

But how would one connect brains to computers? According to a Wall Street Journal report, the answer lies in the "neural lace." Developed using nanotechnology, the neural lace consists of small electrodes implanted in the skull to form an electrode footprint able to monitor part, if not all, of the brain.

Wearers of such a neural lace, the theory goes, will be able to upload thoughts to and from the cloud via computer interface. Either way it all sounds very similar to the "cyberbrain," the mind-machine interface seen in the science fiction manga/anime series "Ghost in the Shell."

EMEA PC shipments total 17.9 million units in Q1 2017, Gartner reports-- a -6.9% Y-o-Y decline, with all major regions making the territory suffering decline.
