Evolution of In-Vehicle Networks to Zonal Architecture

As the automotive industry develops vehicles with increased levels of autonomous driving requiring more sensors and increased connectivity, it faces the challenge of transporting and processing a huge amount of data in the vehicle. To do this in an efficient way, it is necessary to reduce In-Vehicle Network complexity, power consumption and weight, leading to a change from domain-orientated network architecture to zonal architecture. Join this webinar to learn about this significant development in In-Vehicle Networks and how to test it effectively.In this webinar, you will learn more about:Evolution of In-Vehicle Network architectureAutomotive Ethernet characteristicsCompliance testing of Et..

Deepfakes Are Becoming a Cottage Industry

In December, as many people prepared to take off for a winter vacation, the creators of “South Park” announced US $20 million dollars of new funding for the duo’s deepfake studio, Deep Voodoo. The company’s press release says the funds will help it offer “unrivaled face-swapping visual effects to artists, producers, and creators around the world.”Deep Voodoo’s Hollywood connections make it particularly alluring, but it’s far from alone. Dozens of startups now offer services based on deepfake technology. The largest of these, London-based Synthesia, raised $50 million in 2021 and employs over 100. And this is likely just the start of the trend.“I think it’s fair to say tha..
