From the Fish Fry Vault: The Great Shark Cafe

Since Fish Fry is on short hiatus (don’t worry, new episodes will be coming back soon!), I thought I would share another of my all-time favorite episodes.  When we talk about the best Fish Fry podcast episodes here at EE Journal, my producer Larra Morris is always quick to point out that her favorite was “THE SHARKS!” 

Since March of this year, FATHOM Dynamic Advanced Manufacturing has pivoted their business to connect 3D printing manufacturing to help the medical community in some pretty amazing ways... but back in 2017, we were talking about 3D printed trackers for great white sharks. 

“Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the water...”- Peter Benchley, Jaws

What do 3D printing and great white sharks have in common? This week’s episode of Amelia’s Weekly Shark Fry of course! My guest Rich Stump (FATHOM) and I chat about how FATHOM is working with the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute to create 3D printed video tracking devices for great white sharks in the California coastal region. Rich and I also discuss the details of the Great White Shark Café Challenge and the future of 3D printing in the world of oceanic research."

Running the Long Game: New RISC-V Based SoCs and Using Technosignatures to Find Alien Life

It’s a bird, it's a plane, it's a RISC-V Fish Fry! In this week’s podcast, we first investigate how the search for alien life just got a lot more interesting with the help of a unique grant from NASA, the SETI institute, and a team of esteemed researchers from across the United States. We take a closer look at the details of this new research project and how it is hoping to find signs of alien life on distant exoplanets using technosignatures. Also this week, Sammy Cheung (CEO - Efinix) joins us to discuss how Efinix is blending the worlds of RISC-V and reconfigurable computing and the details of  their new family of software-defined SoCs based on the RISC-V core.

Hearing is Believing: Artificial Intelligence, Cough Patterns, and Stemming the Tide of COVID-19

One person's data is another person's noise.” - K.C. Cole

This week’s Fish Fry podcast is all about noisy neurons, cough signature identification, and how AI can help us stem the tide of COVID-19. First up, we check out new research from the German Center for Neurodegenerative Diseases that may have finally unlocked the mysteries of memory retention in people afflicted with Alzheimer’s disease with a little help from a bunch of mice and some very noisy neurons. Also this week, Chris Rogers (CEO - SensiML) joins us to chat about a new health monitoring solution to help fight the COVID-19 pandemic. We discuss the role of artificial intelligence in this solution and how this new platform may help detect symptoms earlier than before with identification of cough sounds.
