Applying emerging technologies for practical business use

Using virtual reality to reinvent the IndyCar fan experience

Racing’s digital fan experience of the future was on display during the DXC Technology 600 at Texas Motor Speedway on June 8. DXC Labs showcased numerous virtual reality demos, viewed via Facebook’s latest Oculus VR headsets, to give clients and partners attending the event an insider’s view of what it’s like to prepare and drive […]

Quantum computing will change everyday life for the better

Quantum computing is the next holy grail of computer science and engineering, promising to change everyday life for the better. Today’s smartphones have the same computing power as a military computer 50 years ago that was the size of an entire room. Yet despite the phenomenal strides we have made in technology and computing, there […]

Machines that pay each other using digital wallets

People use digital wallets such as Venmo and PayPal and, more recently, cryptocurrencies such as bitcoins to make frictionless payments, peer to peer. What if machines could use digital wallets to make frictionless payments, machine to machine? Autonomous vehicles — such as cars, fork lifts, trucks or any industrial machine — could pay for their […]

My experience as a DXC Labs intern

Bangalore-skyline

As a student who had just finished his freshman year of college, my objective for the summer was simple: go out and explore interesting new fields.  Keeping this in mind, I interned at DXC Technology as a member of the DXC Labs team in Bangalore, India, learning and demonstrating quantum computing algorithms. When my internship […]

What I learned in my quantum computing experiment

You’ve heard the buzz about quantum computers outdoing their classical counterparts in computational speed. For example, Lov Grover, a computer scientist at Bell Labs, designed a quantum search algorithm called Grover’s Algorithm that achieves a quadratic increase in speed in database search. In other words, a process that would take 31 years to complete on […]

DXC Labs demonstrates drones, machine learning, AR and more at the DXC Technology 600

For the first time, a drone delivered the green flag to the starting line at a major sporting event, at Texas Motor Speedway on June 9. DXC Labs — which focuses on development of emerging technologies used in digital transformation — was there every step of the way. We worked on planning through execution, and […]

Showcasing emerging drone technology at the DXC Technology 600

The DXC Technology 600 was held on Saturday, June 9, under the lights of the Texas Motor Speedway. Scott Dixon took the checkered flag even though about 3,000 local DXC employees, clients, family, and friends were cheering for the DXC-sponsored car, driven by Simon Pagenaud, who finished 2nd. But this race had a lot more […]

Leveraging blockchain features for access restriction in our 3D printing proof-of-concept

When we last talked about our 3D printing procurement system proof-of-concept, we promised to report back on how we are using blockchain features for access restriction. Prior to implementing blockchain features, we handled access restriction to the 3D model files (STL/G-code) using folder access and Enterprise GitHub. This worked fine if the 3D printing was […]

Adding visual search to our 3D printing proof-of-concept

Being able to search using images, not text, is very powerful when you’re searching for a specific part or product. If your text search does not exactly match the keywords or tags, you won’t find what you’re looking for. That’s where visual search can help. Take the example of a vintage car owner who needs […]

Ask Ally, DXC Technology’s voice-enabled hospital bedside assistant

Voice assistants are coming to the hospital bedside. Voice assistants — made popular by Alexa, Siri, Cortana, Google Home and others — are simple, intuitive, multi-user and best suited where accessibility and availability are essential. Leveraging these advantages, at DXC Labs we have built Ally, DXC Technology’s voice-enabled hospital bedside assistant. Meet Ally The current […]
