The Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE) recently assembled a panel of technology experts to discuss various emerging research technologies, including multimode biometrics, intelligent computing, and wireless power.

WiTricity Corp. chief technology officer Katie Hall says her company is developing resonant magnetic coupling technology that can wirelessly charge laptops, cell phones, electric vehicles, and lighting devices. Researchers from the IBM Almaden Research Center discussed their work on the SyNAPSE project, which is engineering computers that simulate the brain's abilities for sensation, perception, action, interaction, and cognition. Backed by a $4.9 million Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency grant, the researchers are reverse engineering the computational function of the brain using advancements in supercomputing and nanotechnology.

A University of South Florida research team led by professor Rangachar Kasturi is working on a framework for evaluating algorithms that detect and track text, faces, and vehicles in images and video, which could be used to build video analytic software.

Intel's Ray Want described his research on dynamic composable computing, which could advance technology beyond the current limitations of mobile devices and allow for the wireless sharing of computing resources.
