[CEATEC 2016] Hearing aids are a dime a dozen and they’re not exactly new tech either, but that doesn’t mean that it could still be improved upon, and nor does it mean that its design has been perfected. Granted there have been many improvements made to sensitivity, features, and size, but Fujitsu thinks that there might be a better way.


Fujitsu’s Robopin Will Provide A More Humanized Interaction

[CEATEC 2016] Interfacing with a computer can feel rather “cold”.

Fujitsu Develops AI System That Can Catch Criminals On The Run

When a criminal is on the run, there are so many possibilities in which they can escape. They can escape via a car, via public transport, via foot.

Fujitsu Broadcast Engagement Tracking Platform

Fujitsu is working on a product that it hopes will attract broadcasters worldwide: a cloud service that can measure the spectator’s emotion in real-time.
