    Toshiba is currently focused on various social infrastructure projects around the world. But when most people think of Toshiba, they think electronics. So to change this image that people have of us, we decided to make a new commercial, one that would promote the Toshiba brand in a consistent way across regions and countries, and that would be accessible and well-liked in all of these countries. Clay animation is a unique form of stop-motion animation that uses figures made of clay (clay artmore...

    The United States spends significantly more on health care than any other nation, more than twice the average of 29 other developed countries. Preventive healthcare policies along with breakthroughs in early detection can help bend the healthcare cost curve.Recently Toshiba demonstrated Reporter DNA Technology for Cell Diagnosis that detects the slightest changes at the cellular level as a result from illness and disease. Self-amplifying reporter DNA is used allowing gene activation which canmore...

    The majority of all U.S. critical infrastructures are privately owned, such as power plants, electrical grids and communication networks to name a few. The effectiveness of vulnerability assessments depends upon the voluntary collaboration of private sector owners and operators.more...

    Autonomous driving systems must perform many and complex functions at once, including real-time monitoring and recognition of the road and its environs from video feeds and LIDAR(Note 1) information, and plan an appropriate course. Many autonomous vehicles now under development handle this computational complexity with high-end PCs(Note 2). Replacing such PCs with much more cost-effective dedicated processors that consume less power is vital for progress in autonomous driving.more...

    Among Mother Nature’s many wonders, Toshiba researchers focused on photosynthesis -- a process used by plants and other organisms to convert light energy into chemical energy that can later be released to fuel the organisms' activities (energy transformation). In other words, plants are able to synthesize food directly from carbon dioxide and water using energy from light. Learning from this system, Toshiba researchers created a novel way to convert carbon dioxide into ethylene glycol.more...

    The Energy Cloud  will offer not only electric power, but also intelligent management of power consumption and other value-added services to consumers on demand. This service-based approach will be driven by the sharp growth of distributed energy resources and renewables over the next few years, driven by an increase in customer choices and changing technology landscape.more...

    Power devices are essential in controlling electrical power used in all sorts of devices from electrical vehicles (EVs) to railroads to elevators. However when converting power from DC to AC there is substantial energy loss which can result in more generation needed and potentially more GHG emissions depending on the energy source. Also renewable energy sources such as solar and wind is typically creating DC power which needs to be converted to AC before use, again there is energy loss in thismore...

    Despite the fact that hydrogen ranks as the cleanest fuel possible—as a source of electricity its only byproducts are water and heat—its use as a fuel for electricity generation remains nominal. This is because hydrogen’s power has been difficult to leverage: it has the highest amount of energy per weight, but the least amount of energy by volume. Moreover, 95% of the hydrogen produced in the US, which is used almost exclusively for industrial purposes, comes from natural gas, and a largemore...
