Inspired by machine learning, ROS 2, Turtlebot3, and Rulex
One of the greatest challenges of a machine learning (ML) solution, is being able to explain why a trained model gave the output it did for a given input. One could track down the network of neurons that activated or the value of the discriminant function, but it would still be difficult to explain the decision to a human.

The industry’s first 5G cloud native open source solution
While 5G is becoming a well-known technology buzzword, not much is known about the major shift the industry is going through as 5G deployment heads towards prime time. Obviously, 5G’s promise to the service provider community is one of increased revenue through an explosion of use cases such as Industrial IoT, autonomous and vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) applications, mobile edge computing (MEC), human machine interaction such as augmented reali...
In AI we trust?
Artificial Intelligence is a many things, just like human intelligence is. Intelligence, from Latin “Intelligere,” means the ability to go deep and broad as we “bind” (ligere) “together” (intra) things that might apparently have no evident relationship. But by going too deep you lose the general applicability of a developing pattern, and by going too broad you lose meaningful correlations. Guest blo...

Transforming computing at the edge: continuing the StarlingX journey
StarlingX is a relatively new open source project - it was announced in May of 2018 and things have changed, grown and evolved very quickly. It is a very different project now than when we started for sure. Let's review the journey we've taken to get to the recent StarlingX 2.0 release. Guest blog written by Ian Jolliffe, Wind River.
Virtualisation benefits: virtualisation for embedded systems
The latest connected technology trends are forcing old, closed, and purpose-built embedded systems to be modified or replaced. Older systems are giving way to new fluid, software-defined architectures. The critical component to this transition is virtualisation, which has been used in enterprise IT for years but is just making its way into the embedded systems world. It’s providing a way to improve support and modernisation for legacy syste...
Securing the edge with StarlingX
Security on the edge is crucial. Learn more about how the StarlingX 2.0 release helps addressing this challenge. As we drive compute to the edge of the network many things change and become more interesting and new problems need to be solved. Guest blog written by Ian Joliffe, Wind River.
Why the Thomas Cook collapse links to system desegregation
It’s hard to imagine how a strong brand like global travel group Thomas Cook, in business since 1841, could go south so quickly. Its value proposition was proven and real, one-stop-shopping, all-inclusive vacations, great customer support. What happened? A few things actually. First, thanks to the internet and social network, people no longer need assistance from a travel agency to get ideas and deals for their vacations. Guest...

Building a path to DevOps through simulation
In an increasingly technical world, computer science knowledge comes at a premium, and strong programmers have become coveted members of the workforce. The reason why is simple: programming is important, but programming is hard. It requires a lot of skills, from the ability to creatively address problems to being able to organise your thoughts in a way that makes sense to a computer.
