Computer Industry

The computer industry is driven by the mass market. Widely deployable standard components offer an unequalled cost-performance ratio. Tailor-made solutions targeting small markets are exposed to increasing pressure and are disappearing. Since Clayton M. Christensen’s book ‘The Innovator’s Dilemma’, this process has been termed ‘disruptive innovation’. To achieve such technological leaps, leading American computer manufacturers have placed their trust in SCS. The expertise of SCS in this context lies in the integration of a very large number of cheap components into an extraordinarily powerful whole. The required technologies include:

  • High speed networks (proprietary, Gigabit Ethernet, 10Gigabit Ethernet, camLink, GigE Vision)
  • Efficient SW libraries for communication
  • Software drivers
  • Parallel file systems
  • Massive parallel processing with CPUs, GPUs and FPGAs

For the operation of scaling parallel systems with thousands of components, readily accessible and easily maintained individual modules are just as necessary as high failure tolerance through the redundant system design and reliable failover mechanisms.

  • SCS enhances privacy on blockchains SCS enhances privacy on blockchainsSCS has received a development grant from the web3 foundation in Zug for developing a privacy enhancement for blockchains that are based on  Parity Substrate, such as Polkadot and its parachains. SCS will leverage Trusted Execution Environments, namely Intel SGX, to enable use cases requiring enhanced confidentiality or integrity of decentralized computation. This means that you will ...
  • Usability as a success factor in Machine Learning projects Also in ML projects the usability of the user interface is key to success. On the IBM Watson Platform, PDF documents can be used for the training of Machine learning (ML) algorithms. For this purpose, a large number of documents need to be annotated manually. The annotation is an time-consuming work. Making a suitable tool available for ...
  • TechEvent: SVUPP – Telemedicine aids newborns TechEvent: SVUPP – Telemedicine aids newbornsAt the third TechEvent this year Dr. med. Thomas Baumann and Dr. med. et phil. Stefan Essig have shown us how telemedicine can support pediatricians when diagnosing hip dysplasia.   SVUPP is the Swiss association for pediatric ultra sound applications. Thanks to the new SVUPP Exchange Portal, the vision for telemedicine, designed for practicing pediatricians in Switzerland ...
  • Track and Trace in high performance packaging systems Track and Trace in high performance packaging systemsThe World Health Organization (WHO) assumes that over 25% of the medicine sold in developing countries and about 50% of medicine ordered online are fake. According to WHO’s estimations, the death toll in Africa alone amounts to 100’000 per year due to fake medicine. As a reaction to these figures, numerous governments worldwide are releasing ...
