It s very likely that Nvidia will soon launch the GTX 1080 Ti graphics card, a powerful follow-up to last year s GTX 1080.It s expected to boast even more power to push cutting-edge gaming graphics in native 4K resolution, and while it s likely to be based on the same Pascal GPU architecture as the GTX 1080, it should still be a decent upgrade over the older yet still very powerful GPU.We re assuming that Nvidia continues its pattern of releasing a mainline GPU series along with an incredibly powerful Titan variant one year, then following up with a more powerful Ti variant the next year.So, if you re looking forward to a GPU that s more powerful than the GTX 1080, and more affordable than the Titan X, then read on to find out all the news, rumors and release date information we know so far about the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 Ti.Quite a bit, probably over $600 £500, AU$800 Nvidia GTX 1080 Ti release date
By 2020, Kew aims to have 25% of the world's plants preserved repository.But as more wild plant species disappear, humans will miss out on thousands of plants that could be useful as biofuels, medicines or food
Asteroid mining has gained steam in the popular psyche: who doesn t love the idea of flying up to one of the giant rocks floating by and somehow harvesting it for precious metals like platinum.But yesterday at the 2017 meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of the Sciences, scientists considered whether we should pursue another, far more likely alternative: mining the seafloor.We love digging for stuff, selling it, and polluting the environment with the byproducts, so why not dig beneath the seafloor with its untapped potential?There are lots of reasons to start looking for alternatives to on-land mines.The metals that companies actually use only make up a few percent of the ore that miners pull from the ground.Tailing ponds can have issues should the dams holding them back fail, potentially sending toxic sludge into the environment and even killing people, like in the 2010 disaster in Kolontar, Hungary.

Staff members are, of course, critical to any business, and human resource departments have to strive to find the best recruits for their organisation, putting in place a sterling system for filtering job applicants and conducting interviews.Once employed, there s a duty to care for workers, ensure they can do their jobs effectively, and perhaps most importantly, train staff to produce even better results.Previously, businesses have relied on training days and professional courses to educate staff, but these things can be time-consuming, not to mention costly.A scalable learning management systemPlatforms: Desktop, iOS, Android Core features: Scalable course generator, unlimited bandwidth Reporting ability: Yes Free trial: YesDocebo LMS Learning Management System is one of the best online learning platforms out there.
The image above - one of around 400,000 mammograms belonging to Zebra Medical Vision - shows what a breast looks like to AI.It has been colour-coded to make it easier for a self-teaching neural network to identify breast cancer.Using this technique, Zebra Medical claims to have been able to detect cancerous cells with 91 per cent accuracy.This is an improvement on the typical radiologists' rate of 88 per cent, with fewer false positives."Right now," says Zebra Medical founder Elad Benjamin, "this is better than human performance."Launched in 2014, Tel Aviv-based firm Zebra Medical, which consists of 25 employees, has developed image-scanning algorithms to identify bone, lung, liver and heart disease.
LG G6 will feature new mobile user experience version 6.0 customised to take advantage of the phone's FullVision display.The smartphone featuring the latest UX 6.0 will be unveiled at the MWC 2017 event in Barcelona, Spain, on 26 February, the company announced in a post on its official site.The G6 will feature a 5.7in QHD FullVision display resolution at 2880 x 1440 pixels with an 18:9 screen ratio entirely filling the front part of the handset.The new UX 6.0 maximises the benefit of the FullVision display while delivering more convenience to users, claims LG.The display offers users a new viewing experience with an expanded top and bottom feature, allowing users to view more information on the large screen while browsing, reading e-books and while watching videos and playing games.Additionally, the smartphone incorporates a feature allowing users to view 16:9 ratio content in 18:9 format.
If you re keen to find out what a nearly-ready-to-launch phone will look like, case renders are no bad place to start.Before releasing a new phone, phone makers will dole schematics out to relevant case makers to ensure there s a healthy supply of cases for launch.That s why in the weeks prior to a phone launch, we often see a bunch of highly accurate case renders turning up online.Though we can t verify the accuracy of this latest render, it s still worth checking out.Prolific tipster and journalist Evan Blass, who is generally reliable when it comes to phone leaks, has posted an image of what looks to be the Samsung Galaxy S8 and LG G6 smartphones – neither of which have be formally unveiled.In a post to Twitter, Blass wrote: It s never too early to stat shopping for cases for your next phone s :
The Samsung Galaxy S8 might have been hit by delays, but it would appear the upcoming flagship phone could be with us sooner than expected.Although the phone won't be fully unveiled at this month's Mobile World Congress gathering as originally planned, reports out of Korea have claimed Samsung will use its press conference to reveal a one minute teaser video for the upcoming phone.According to the new reports, this teaser, which will also give us our first official glimpse of the handset, will be accompanied by an announcement from Samsung mobile chief, DJ Koh, confirming the phone's release date.Although we might be given details on the Galaxy S8 release date within a matter of days, don't expect to get your hands on the device just yet.Instead, the phone's unveiling will reportedly be followed by an in-store release around April 21.Early looks at the phone have shown the iPhone 8 challenger will play host to an all new design that will scrap its predecessor's physical home button.
Stuck in a city-centre traffic jam, a sea of red brake lights ahead.When asked, somewhere between 80 and 90 per cent of drivers believe that their skills behind the wheel are above average.The science behind how and why traffic jams form tells a very different story.Road congestion can be caused by any number of factors - bad weather, an accident, roadworks or just by too many vehicles competing for too little space.The reason is simple - people have trouble maintaining a constant speed.This causes a start-stop shockwave that travels backwards through traffic.

Bill Gates has warned that governments and researchers need to prepare for bio-terrorism attacks and unintentional outbreaks of particularly virulent diseases to avoid the deaths of tens of millions of people in the future.The Microsoft co-founder turned philanthropist delivered the warning on Saturday at a security conference in Munich, saying that the threat posed by malicious actors is significant if they manage to engineer bio-weapons, which is arguably easier than ever given developments in technology."The next epidemic could originate on the computer screen of a terrorist intent on using genetic engineering to create a synthetic version of the smallpox virus ... or a super contagious and deadly strain of the flu," Gates said, according to The Guardian, adding that just because a widescale pandemic hasn't happened in the last 100 years, it's still a very real threat.With little re-assurance, Gates went on to liken preparedness for a global healthcare catastrophe to being "every bit as important as nuclear deterrence," though he did offer a bone of consolation, saying that advances in bio-technology and new drugs could help stop the spread of potential future disease outbreaks.Meanwhile, earlier in the week, just as the European Parliament found that robots shouldn't be subject to additional taxes to offset the effect on jobs and industry, Gates took the opposite position.In an interview with Quartz, he argued that by levying an additional tax on the use of robots in place of humans, additional jobs could be created in roles that are particularly well suited to people, like taking care of elderly people or kids.
The bad news is that we're not going to get a new Batmobile with the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice sequel, Justice League.The good news is Mattel has created a remote control version of Ben Affleck's batride with so many features that it could probably be used as a miniature replica in the film.When available sometime in spring later this year, the Justice League Elite-Tek Batmobile will come with a very collector-targeted $250 £201 price tag.But that's not the only reason parents might want to think twice about buying this one for their kids.To make it function as close as possible to the full-size Batmobile that will be used in Justice League, Mattel has incorporated an oil-based vape into the RC car so that after you gun the engine, the toy produces realistic smoke coming out of its exhaust pipes.Before you start putting your lips to the Batmobile's rear end, you should probably know that it uses a special included oil to produce its realistic exhaust, so adding your own vape flavour and taking a hit isn't recommended.
Jason Segel — actor of How I Met Your Mother, Freaks and Geeks and Muppets fame — is in a unique position: he s the only person alive that can save one very strange man from a lifetime of gastrointestinal discomfort.The YouTuber, who goes by the pseudonym Dog Shit, uploaded a video yesterday called I Eat a Picture of Jason Segel Everyday Until He Eats A Picture of Me.Everything you need to know about this bizarre ruse is contained in the title, and true to form, today Mr. Shit uploaded I Eat a Picture of Jason Segel Everyday Until He Eats A Picture of Me.Both are short, wordless meditations on our uniquely human capacity for gainless self-destruction.You re literally the only one who can.
A Canadian mother in Ontario is outraged after her 13-year-old son was handed instructions for making and injecting crystal meth as part of a drama class assignment.As reported by the CBC network, the incident took place at Erin Mills Middle School in Mississauga, Ontario.I was in a state of shock...I m thinking this cannot be real.According to Greenidge s son, the unnamed grade eighth teacher printed out the instructions as part of an acting assignment, and instructed the students to act scared when making the drug, and to act happy when injecting it.Strangely, the teacher thought it appropriate to provide the actual instructions for producing methamphetamine, otherwise known as crystal meth.The document apparently provided such instructions as, Give your arms a wipe with alcohol wipes...or use a wet wipe, this is to prevent any bacteria infection.

The International Astronomical Union has named 17 minor planets as part of its NameExoWorlds contest.Looking at the winning monikers — which include such dreadful titles as Miguelhernández and Thunder Bay — it s now painfully clear that the system of naming celestial objects is broken.Back in 2015, the IAU organised the NameExoWorlds contest, allowing the public to submit names for 32 extrasolar planets orbiting 15 stars.It could ve been a disaster Rock n Roll Star or Starry Bunnies were two of the initial submissions , but many of the approved names were actually quite beautiful, from Veritate, Hypatia, and Orbitar to Dagon, Poltergeist, and Dulcinea.As a reward, the winners of this contest, which seem to be disproportionately represented by universities and observatories, were given the opportunity to name 17 minor planets in our solar system a minor planet being a celestial body in orbit around the Sun that s too small to be considered a planet, but too big to be considered an asteroid or comet .The IAU, with the assistance of its Division F Working Group Small Bodies Nomenclature a shitty name for a group that s supposed to be in the business of recognising, you know, actually pleasant-sounding or profound names approved the names of these minor planets after the winners made their proposals.

There s a world out there beyond Windows, macOS, Android and iOS — and it s a world worth exploring.The big four operating systems are built to be useful to as many people as possible.It s the stripped-down, lightweight operating system originally built for the low-powered Raspberry Pi, making it a perfect choice for older laptops and desktops that are starting to show their age.You don t get the same software selection as you do on Windows or macOS, but you get something that can be more secure, and besides, all the best apps are on the web these days anyways.Right now it can only be run directly from a DVD or USB stick, but the developers behind it are considering creating a full installer in the future.Asteroid OS is intuitive, beautifully designed and more consistent than anything Google has managed so far.
