How to Become a Remote Data Engineer?
A remote data engineer is a professional who works with data engineering systems and tools to help organizations store, process, and analyze data. In many cases, as a remote data engineer, you will be required to work with large-scale data sets that are too complex or too expensive to process using traditional means.
As such, it is important that you have a strong understanding of both business application of the data and the technical aspects of the data engineering process. In addition, remote data engineers have to communicate effectively with technical and non-technical staff to ensure that the data engineering process meets the organization needs.

Why being a software engineer in robotics is a great career
People are used to thinking about robots only in futuristic movies and conspiracy theories. It seems to be something extraordinary but not a part of the current reality. Actually, people take advantage of using robots for many tasks on a daily basis.
That’s why robotics engineering is a highly anticipated and extremely growing area. Experts who are keen on programming for robots this blog can bring new solutions to many fields and help people to succeed in their goals.
So let’s discuss the particularities of the position of a software engineer – robotics and its perspectives. [Read more…] about How to Become a Robotics Software Engineer
What Is An ASIC Engineer And What Do They Do?
As society steps into automation and digitization, enterprises are gearing up for their utmost efficiency and reliability solutions.
To stay on top of the digital industry, business leaders should highlight the importance of the electronic circuitry of their computing devices, as these units are crucial for data instruction and processing.
The central processing unit (CPU) and graphics processing unit (GPU) dominate data processing. While these chips are intended for a vast array of computing functions, they tend to be less efficient and accurate. [Read more…] about What Is An ASIC Engineer And What Do They Do?
International Space Station creating new biological life forms
The International Space Station is creating new biological life forms using “cutting-edge 3D biomanufacturing”.
3D printing – also known as additive manufacturing – is a well-known method of making things here on Earth, and on the ISS, but this method uses materials such as plastics and metals.
However, 3D biomanufacturing uses biological materials such as new tissue or blood vessels. (See video below.) [Read more…] about International Space Station creating new biological life forms
Audi autonomous car tech boss chats with humanoid robot as though it were entirely natural
Audi has demonstrated its autonomous car – which it calls “Jack” – in a road test featuring a humanoid robot called Sophia, developed by Hanson Robotics.
Audi’s head of concept development, automated driving, Klaus Verweyen, was sitting in the driver’s seat of the car, while Sophia was in the passenger seat.
Verweyen chatted away to Sophia as though it was the most normal thing in the world. Meanwhile, Jack drove itself from Audi’s facility onto a main highway and back again. [Read more…] about Audi autonomous car tech boss chats with humanoid robot as though it were entirely natural
Engineering companies struggling to find and keep talented young workers
To anyone looking for work, it might sound strange to hear that some sectors of the economy are struggling to find and retain workers, but that’s the situation many engineering companies find themselves in.
Finding, educating, training and retaining talented young people is not just a dilemma for engineering companies in one region or country, it’s a global issue.
But, paradoxically, while companies in some countries say there’s a problem finding engineering graduates, in other countries such as India, large numbers of engineering graduates are reportedly not having much luck finding jobs.
In those countries where there is a shortage, such as Germany and maybe the US, it’s not at crisis levels yet, but it’s a complication that large industrial companies are trying to alleviate in a variety of ways.

The delicate balance of costs versus productivity in industrial automation
John Mitchell, business development manager at CP Automation, examines the essence of lean manufacturing
European manufacturers are estimated to spend over €400 billion every year on maintenance activities. Studies show that about 30 per cent of failed machinery can be repaired at half the cost of buying replacements, which suggests a potential 15 per cent saving. John Mitchell, business development manager at CP Automation, discusses the issues that stop manufacturers cutting costs and improving productivity – the essence of lean manufacturing.
Perhaps the first thing manufacturers should consider when addressing efficiency is keeping assets low.Manufacturers can easily eliminate excess inventory from their books, and thus get better return on net assets,simply by not purchasing the inventory until it’s needed. Methods of achieving this include Just in Time (JIT) inventory management, which is also sometimes called the Toyota Production System. Figures suggest thiscould result in a 60 billion saving in plants across Europe.
As a service and commissioning engineer, I’ve often turned up on site to help a customer with a breakdown, onlyto find a host of spares out of their antistatic packaging and a confused client, not knowing whether or not the spares were functional.
