Shauna Heller saw that potential, so she quit her job at Oculus VR and became a consultant to make non-VR applications happen.And one of her projects was create a VR simulation that trains doctors how to treat infants in emergencies.Heller pulled together a team of developers and technologists and matched them with surgeons at the Childrens Hospital in Los Angeles.Together, they made a VR simulation that helps doctors in training to save infants who have suffered some kind of seizure or anaphylactic shock.“It takes a game technology and enables it to be used for training in the medical space, where children’s lives on the line.”Facebook’s Oculus VR division, maker of the Oculus Rift VR headset, funded the project.
So cheered parts of the audience in Room 6A at the San Diego Convention Center as the panel for "The Tick" kicked off.After a brief welcome from moderator Ralph Garman, attendees were treated to the world premiere of the second episode of the show (the pilot premiered on Amazon Video last year) ahead of the show's streaming premiere date of August 25.For the uninitiated, the Tick is a blue-clad superhero who, sure, may not seem like he's quite all there and may have an unconventional battle cry (i.e."), but he really just wants to help everyone and protect people from evildoers, with the help of his reluctant sidekick, Arthur.The Tick started out as a comic book hero in the late 1980s but crossed over to animation (cult favorite "The Tick: The Animated Series" on Fox) and then to a previous live-action series in 2001.On the panel were Tick creator Ben Edlund and a large chunk of the cast, including Peter Serafinowicz (The Tick), Griffin Newman (Arthur), Jackie Earle Haley (The Terror), Valorie Curry (Dot), Yara Martinez (Miss Lint), Brendan Hines (Superion), Scott Speiser (Overkill) and Michael Cerveris (Ramses).

It's a good thing artificial intelligence systems can't get hangry.Researchers at MIT's Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory have developed an AI system with a million recipes at its fingertips.The neural network, dubbed Pic2Recipe, suggests recipes based on looking at and analyzing photos of food.The data comes from a variety of popular cooking websites, including Food.com and Kraft Recipes.The researchers, who have published a study on the AI's abilities, call it "the largest publicly available collection of recipe data.""In computer vision, food is mostly neglected because we don't have the large-scale datasets needed to make predictions," co-author Yusuf Aytar said in a news release Thursday.
Netflix rapport för årets andra kvartal var munter läsning för aktieägarna.Antalet abonnenter steg med 5,21 miljoner, jämfört med 3,22 miljoner som analytikerna hade förväntat sig.Omsättningen under kvartalet steg samtidigt med drygt 30 procent till 2,79 miljarder dollar.Läs mer: Netflix lockar långt fler än väntatMen siffrorna kunde ha varit ännu bättre om Netflix lyckades hindra användarna från att dela konton med varandra.En undersökning från Reuters som publicerades förra veckan visar nämligen att 12 procent av de amerikanska tittarna, och mer än en femtedel i åldern 18-24 år, lånar ett konto från någon de känner, istället för att betala för ett eget.
DeepMind is one of the UK's most successful technology startups, having been acquired by Google for £400 million in January 2014.Before the artificial intelligence research lab was acquired, DeepMind took several million pounds from a host of big name investors to help it scale up, including Tesla CEO Elon Musk and Skype cofounder Jaan Tallinn."I remember the first time I pitched to him, he decided to invest within the first meeting," said Hassabis during a talk to entrepreneurs at Google Campus last month, which was uploaded onto YouTube last week."But it took about three months before it actually was closed because the main sticking point was he wanted us to move to Silicon Valley.Hassabis told Thiel that London, the UK, and Europe had an untapped talent pool that he and his cofounders — Mustafa Suleyman and Shane Legg — could exploit, citing universities such as Oxford, Cambridge, Imperial, University College London, and Kings College London as prime examples."One of the things was I thought it [staying in London] was going to be a competitive advantage in terms of talent acquisition," said Hassabis.
UK web users will have to prove they’re 18 or over before being able to access pornographic content, from next year.The government has announced that by April 2018, adult websites must introduce age verification tools or face heavy fines of up to £250,000.The plans were set out within last year’s controversial Digital Economy Act and are designed to protect children from accessing the content.Digital minister Matt Hancock said in a written statement to the Commons: “All this means that while we can enjoy the freedom of the web, the UK will have the most robust internet child protection measures of any country in the world.”Naturally, this has led to privacy concerns related to adult sites holding the identity of visitors, with one group claiming it could leave the public vulnerable to hackers.The Open Rights Group’s Kim Killock told the Independent: “Age verification could lead to porn companies building databases of the UK’s porn habits, which could be vulnerable to Ashley Madison style hacks,
Dodocool has released an accessory so useful we can’t think of any tech fan who wouldn’t want to buy one.Dodocool is a manufacturer of tech accessories ranging from LED lamps to earphones and even chargers.The Dodocool DA102 falls in the latter but rather than simply charging one device at a time it has USB ports to charge up to 6 x USB devices.The designers of this useful charging bank have ensured that devices that support fast charging are catered for too.USB placed at the bottom of the device is actually a Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0.Dodocool also says that the DA102 is completely safe too and has been designed to prevent overheating, and comes with built-in over voltage protection and short circuit protection.
Myspace is a “graveyard of personal data” that anyone can accessA security researcher has revealed that anyone’s old Myspace account can be easily accessed just by knowing a few basic pieces of personal information.Myspace became one of most popular social network sites following its creation in 2003, but was rapidly overtaken by Facebook and others.At its peak it attracted around 75 million active users a month and these users have now been warned that their accounts are at risk of being hacked.According to Leigh-Anne Galloway, a security researcher at Positive Technologies, the account recovery mechanism that Myspace provides for users who no longer have access to their old email addresses can be quite easily tricked into letting anyone in.All hackers need to know the target user’s full name, Myspace username and date of birth, all information that is often freely available from other social networks.
Och de som jobbar med AI-utveckling tror att de kommer att ägna sig åt att bygga tillämpningar för att ersätta kollegor inom andra it-yrken.Evans Data har frågat över 500 AI-utvecklare från hela världen vilka typer av projekt de arbetar med.51 procent svarar att projekten syftar till att ersätta olika arbetsuppgifter inom it.Det handlar främst om olika typer av underhåll och administration, alltså i hög utsträckning driftspersonal.Kombinera den här trenden med devops, som ofta innebär att utvecklare tar över driftsuppgifter, och med att allt fler företag flyttar applikationer till molnplattformar.Det är logiskt att det börjar med att ersätta it-jobb, säger Janel Garvin, vd på Evans Data, i ett uttalande.
The original portable music player, its features have long been supplanted by the immense capabilities of the iPhone, and carrying a couple thousand songs in our pocket is hardly the novel concept it once was.But Edgar Wright’s Baby Driver has shown us that the iPod hasn't lost any of its cool factor.While the iPod may have long ago lost its dedicated tab at the top of Apple.com, you’ll still find iPods on display at most Apple Stores, which is more than you can say for the Mac mini.And while Apple hasn’t updated its iPod line in nearly two years, two new products clearly take their inspiration from the minuscule music player: AirPods and HomePod.iPod sales represent little more than a rounding error on Apple’s quarterly balance sheet, so why hasn’t Apple put it out to pasture like so many other products?It’s an easy purchase for kids who aren’t ready for a smartphone yet or fitness buffs who don’t want to work out with their $750 phone.
Jyrsijänheinän hinta kaupan hyllyllä on noin 2,5 euroa kilogrammaa kohden, kun hevosenheinästä saa vain 35 senttiä kilogrammalta.Tämän hoksasi marsuille, kaneille ja muille jyrsijöille heinää viljelevä Oskutuote.Oskutuotteen toimitusjohtaja Jukka Puustinen kertoo, että pienempiin paketteihin pakkaaminen vaatii rutkasti työtä."Kolme vuotta sitten ostimme heinänpakkauskoneet.Oskutuote on lemmikkieläintuotteiden maahantuonti- ja tukkumyyntiliike, joka tuottaa karttulalaisella tilalla itse myymänsä jyrsijänheinän.Yritys on seudun ainoa ja Suomen suurin valmistaja alalla.
Advances in deep learning and other machine learning algorithms are currently causing a tectonic shift in the technology landscape.Technology behemoths like Google, Microsoft, Amazon, Facebook and Salesforce are engaged in an artificial intelligence (AI) arms race, gobbling up machine learning talent and startups at an alarming pace.They are building AI technology war chests in an effort to develop an insurmountable competitive advantage.Today, you can watch a 30-minute deep learning tutorial online, spin up a 10-node cluster over the weekend to experiment, and shut it down on Monday when you’re done – all for the cost of a few hundred bucks.Betting big on an AI future, cloud providers are investing resources to simplify and promote machine learning to win new cloud customers.This has led to an unprecedented level of accessibility that is breeding grassroots innovation in AI.
That's because tasks such as turning the stove on, fetching the kettle and finding the milk and sugar require perceptual abilities that, for most machines, are still a fantasy.While it's relatively straightforward for robots to "see" objects with cameras and other sensors, interpreting what they see, from a single glimpse, is more difficult.Duke University graduate student Ben Burchfiel says the most sophisticated robots in the world can't yet do what most children do automatically, but he and his colleagues may be closer to a solution.Burchfiel and his thesis advisor George Konidaris, now an assistant professor of computer science at Brown University, have developed new technology that enables machines to make sense of 3-D objects in a richer and more human-like way.A robot that clears dishes off a table, for example, must be able to adapt to an enormous variety of bowls, platters and plates in different sizes and shapes, left in disarray on a cluttered surface.A robot with this technology wouldn't need to see every side of a teapot, for example, to know that it probably has a handle, a lid and a spout, and whether it is sitting upright or off-kilter on the stove.
Number 13: unlucky for some, but lucky for "Doctor Who" fans, who will meet the thirteenth Doctor this weekend.This Sunday, 16 July, the BBC will reveal the actor who will replace Peter Capaldi as the star of the long-running British sci-fi show.Capaldi will pilot the Tardis for the last time in this year's Christmas special, after which the new star and new showrunner Chris Chibnall will take over the time-travelling adventure.Current favourites with the bookies include Kris Marshall and Phoebe Waller-Bridge.The announcement will follow the Wimbledon men's tennis final, which means the exact time isn't yet confirmed.
