LATEST INTELLIGENCE SINGAPORE The National University of Singapore (NUS), a member of the Intel Neuromorphic Research Community (INRC), has presented new research demonstrating the promise of event-based vision and touch sensing in combination with Intel neuromorphic processing for robotics. The work highlights how bringing a sense of touch to robotics can significantly improve capabilities and functionality compared to today’s visual-only systems and how neuromorphic processors can outperform traditional architectures in processing such sensory data. NEW ZEALAND G Medical Innovations (GMV) has expanded its agreement with HSC Technology to offer its remote patient monitoring services in New Zealand as well as Australia. This extension follows a non-exclusive agreement secured in April where G Medical integrated and distributed its Prizma device via HSC’s uVue telehealth platform to monitor the vital signs of elderly patients in a nursing home. It also allows G Medical to introduce its 24-hour remote patient monitoring service to hospitals and other healthcare providers. INTELLIGENTCIO 31
