Let’s take a look

  • Netculator searches, analyzes and visualizes the world’s scientific intelligence to help answer critical questions. We have provided some examples around important topics, which will give a good insights on the strengths of the solution. These emerging technologies are either radically new, show extraordinary growth or have significant importance for the future.
  • Each dot or node represents a publication or patent to a specific topic. Being able to quickly understand and assess emerging topics and technologies and turning these into feasible products and solution offerings, can provide your company with the leading edge for the future.

Neuromodulation

  • Each dot represents a relevant article or patent.
  • Out of a number of emerging technologies, two major trends can be identified, which are based on memristors, electrical components whose electric resistance can be controlled by the amperage. Due to this similarity the clusters are close to each other.
  • Synthetic synapses need a multitude of weighting coefficients which convert input signals to output signals. These weighting coefficients are represented by the continuously adjustable resistance of the memristors.
  • Resistive random access memories (RRAMs) are persistent data memories with high storage density, low power consumption, high speed and long lifetime compared to current data memories. The data is stored using the dynamic electric resistance of the memristors.

Internet of Things

  • A 2nd iteration allows drill-down possibilities into defined areas. In this case ‘smart grid’ and ‘visible light communication’ have been identfied

The following areas have shown major activies:

  • Security
  • Smart Cities
  • Cloud
  • Industry
  • Energy and Communication

Smart Grid

  • Each dot represents a relevant article or patent.
  • The smart grid gathers and analyzes data from the power grid. Herewith predictions for producers and consumers can be made to control the grid accordingly.
  • Intelligent use leads to a higher energy efficiency, a more stable grid, an optimal integration of distributed energy resources and allows dynamic pricing models.

Visible Light Communication

  • Each dot represents a relevant article or patent.
  • Visible light communication (VLC) transmits data at the frequency of visible light. The emitter is a LED, the receiver a photodiode.
  • The signal is created by intensity modulation.
  • This type of communication could be used in smart homes to connect the relevant devices.
  • Advantages are a high bandwidth and seamless integration into the existing light infrastructure.

Nanodevices

  • Each dot represents a relevant article or patent.
  • Out of a number of emerging technologies, two major trends can be identified, which are based on memristors, electrical components whose electric resistance can be controlled by the amperage. Due to this similarity the clusters are close to each other.
