Applying emerging technologies for practical business use

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

DXC-drone-team-with-green-flag-at-DXC-Technology-600-race

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 […]

How serverless computing serves the enterprise

Savvy businesses crave rapid iterative development, reduced IT costs, and strategic use of IT staff for creating differentiated services, not for provisioning and managing back-end compute resources. The answer? Serverless computing. Serverless computing, an emerging style of application development, eliminates the complexity of dealing with servers at all levels of the technology stack. It provides […]

Using machine vision to fight crime: Real-time license plate detection and notification

Cameras have been reading vehicle license plates for things like issuing speeding tickets, deducting tolls and conducting border surveillance. What if we could use cameras to read license plates to identify criminal suspects and notify the nearest police in real time? This is what we set out to do at DXC Labs using machine vision. […]

How 3D printing can speed procurement: A closer look at our proof-of-concept

Following my previous post about speeding procurement with 3D printing, I am sharing details about our proof-of-concept to do just that. We have designed an easy-to-use 3D printing plug-in for enterprise procurement (i.e., ERP) systems that is loaded with features. Our proof-of-concept has four parts: digital warehouse — stores all the digital design models (files), with […]

How 3D printing can speed procurement

We live in an ever-faster world of shrinking time-to-market, same-day deliveries and instant gratification. It’s time our manufacturing systems caught up. Today’s ERP systems support traditional manufacturing and procurement workflows, which take days if not weeks to get products to you. What if a worker could order a product and 3D-print it on the spot? […]

DXC Labs: Using data stories to accelerate machine learning solutions

DXC Labs has been leading the R&D for our industrialized AI offering by rapidly developing prototypes of machine learning solutions for various “data stories.” These prototypes (or minimum viable products) can be developed quickly to show customers actionable insights and engage them in deeper discussions. The prototypes, which we also call accelerators, lay the groundwork […]
