Technology is continuously updating, and it feels hard to keep up. However, IEEE Impact Creator and Modern Software Delivery expert Carmen Fontana is always at the forefront. Read what she told various publications about tech – the benefits, the challenges, and how it can change everything.
IEEE Transmitter magazine shares how six Impact Creators’ get inspired when working with technology.
Carmen was at the top of the list of technologists. She shared how technology’s impact on humanity is what inspires her most.
“I get excited about how technology can help bring us together to solve new problems.”
Carmen shared with IEEE.
Carmen talks to the Next Platform about using quantum computing in the utilities industry.
She explains how quantum allows us to solve problems we weren’t able to before, due to the extensive computing power. She further explains how the energy and utilities industry can apply this to renewable resources, such as solar and wind power, to be more effective in managing these resources from a data perspective.
While the whole video shares a lot of information on cool tech news, you can catch Carmen’s segment at minute 41.
TechTarget’s IoT Agenda recently shared a guest post by Carmen about how to promote business continuity with IoT supply chain management.
She explains how using the internet of things in your supply chain enhances response time and delivery accuracy, improving flow for your business.
“Having real-time information about every phase of operations lets organizations see and respond to disruptions quicker,” Carmen said.
Carmen spoke to ZDNet about eight companies that are on top of quantum computing.
She explains how quantum computing has morphed from theoretical, far-off implications to its contributions this year.
“In 2020, there have been more tangible timelines and applications for quantum computing, indicating that the space is rapidly advancing and maturing,” she said in the article.
The article goes on to dive deeper into how quantum will affect technology and businesses, listing out eight companies who are ahead of the curve.
“With the time horizon of accessible quantum computing now shrinking to a decade or less, Fontana believes we can expect to see ‘an explosion of start-ups looking to be first movers in the quantum applications space. These companies will seek to apply quantum’s powerful compute power to solve existing problems in novel ways.‘”
IEEE Transmitter recently featured Carmen, an IEEE member, on their “Warehouses and Factories” webpage.
“We will continue to see innovation in “final mile” delivery via autonomous vehicles. COVID-19 has accelerated the demand for home delivery of groceries and other household goods. However, the process of getting products from factory to individual households is still largely reliant on traditional transportation,” Carmen said.
