The Japanese giant Hitachi has developed the world’s smallest and thinnest Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) chip. Measuring only 0.15 x 0.15 millimeters in size and 7.5 micrometers thick, the wireless chip is a smaller version of the previous record holder – Hitachi’s 0.4 x 0.4 mm “Micro-Chip”. The company used semiconductor miniaturization and electron beam technology to write data on the chip substrates to achieve this decrease in size. The new chips have a wide range of potential applications from military to transportation, logistics and even consumer electronics.

The blockchain brings significant operational benefitsInteroperable
A modular, interoperable platform that eliminates the possibility of double spending
An auditable record that can be inspected and used by companies, standards organizations, regulators, and customers alike
A solution to drastically reduce costs by eliminating the need for “handling companies” to be audited
Real-time and agile
A fast and highly accessible sign-up means quick deployment
The openness of the platform enables innovation and could achieve bottom-up transparency in supply chains instead of burdensome top-down audits
The elimination of any central operator ensures inclusiveness and longevity

The hype is huge around the Internet of Things (IoT) and the Internet of Everything (IoE), but the potential often gets lost in endless discussions about the technologies that underpin the IoT and IoE (sensors, beacons, telematics, fitness trackers, mobile apps, global positioning devices, etc.). Millions of different “connected” devices + massive amounts of data = lots of confusion, unless you first determine what you are trying to do with that wealth of data.

A report shown at the 2016 World Economic Forum in January says millions of jobs will be lost to robots in the next few years. When thinking about who is most vulnerable, factory workers, drivers, and pilots come to mind.
