3D printing has radically changed the whole procedure of designing, developing, and manufacturing products in the automotive industry. The technology is used for producing lighter and complex parts & accessories at reduced costs. 3D printers have proved boon to automotive industry players for efficient use of materials and effective logistics management.
North America dominates the automotive 3D printing market presently owing to early adoption and awareness of the technology; followed by Europe. In 2016, the U.S. dominated the market in North America. Growth in automotive production in Europe and Asia-Pacific results in the increase in adoption of 3D printing in these regions during the forecast period. Further, the decline in prices of the technology would facilitate the market growth in major automotive production countries such as China, Japan, and Brazil
The upcoming UN Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen has sparked the interest of blog authors, news media, environmental organizations and the corporate sector alike. Given the resulting flood of comments, position statements and articles, it is becoming increasingly difficult for observers to obtain an unbiased and transparent overview of the perceptions and opinions of the various stakeholder groups.
Released just-in-time for Copenhagen, the latest edition of our "Media Watch on Climate Change" addresses this problem. To track and visualize the main topics of the upcoming climate summit in Copenhagen, the portal processes and filters hundred thousands of Web documents. The visual information exploration and retrieval interface includes geographic displays, domain ontologies, tag clouds, maps of document clusters (see attached screenshot), and information retrieval agents suggesting documents about similar topics and nearby locations.
The new release of the Web portal features an increased update frequency (four times a day), a higher precision in identifying relevant material, improved performance of the underlying semantic search algorithms, the real-time visualization of semantic associations between popular terms as well as automated summaries of all documents contained in the knowledge base.
A user manual is available in PDF format and contains a detailed description of the portal's search functionality, trend charts and visual exploration features.
