TOKYO – Toshiba Corporation (TOKYO: 6502) has developed the world’s most efficient electrocatalyst technology for converting carbon dioxide into carbon monoxide, a raw material for fuel and chemicals. The electrocatalyst has an installation area about the size of a C5 envelope, operates at room temperature, and can process up to a ton of CO2 a year. This dramatic improvement in processing speed and conversion rate was achieved with a proprietary technology for stacking CO2 electrocatalyst electrodes.

TOKYO – Toshiba Corporation (TOKYO: 6502), the industry leader in solutions for large-scale optimization problems, today announced a scale-out technology that minimizes hardware limitations, an evolution of its optimization computer, the Simulation Bifurcation Machine (SBM), that supports continued increases in computing speed and scale. Toshiba expects the new SBM to be a game changer for real-world problems that require large-scale, high-speed and low-latency, such as simultaneous financial transactions involving large numbers of stock, and complex control of multiple robots. The research results were published in Nature Electronics on March 1.

TOKYO―Toshiba Corporation (TOKYO: 6502) has developed inspection information management AI for equipment inspections that can recognize the location as well as any signs of deterioration in equipment, including the size of any crack, simply by analyzing a single photo taken with a general-purpose camera. The system combines two Toshiba technologies: position-recognition AI that identifies locations from images, and 3D-recognition AI that accurately estimates sizes. The new AI will contribute to the efficiency of maintenance inspections at power plants and other facilities with weak or no GPS signals.
