Java's days are numbered – but it's a very large numberIn early April, Stanford University began piloting a new version of its introductory computer science course, CS 106A."[CS 106J] covers the same material as CS 106A but does so using JavaScript, the most common language for implementing interactive web pages, instead of Java," the university website explains.According to The Stanford Daily, Eric Roberts, emeritus professor of computer science, has been working on the transition for the past five years, writing a new textbook, creating assignments, and training teaching assistants.Roberts wrote the Java textbook still used in CS 106A, The Art & Science of Java.For the decade before that, Stanford's computer science department focused on the C programming language, according to The Stanford Daily.

Creating red-eyed mutant wasps may sound like a waste of time, but it's an eye-catching example of CRISPR gene-splicing tech in action.Have you ever found yourself looking at a regular, garden variety wasp and wishing that it looked more like the kind of sinister nightmare creature that would give H.R.If the answer to that is a resounding “no,” then chances are that you don’t work in the University of California, Riverside’s Akbari lab.That’s because researchers at said lab recently introduced the world to a new strain of red-eyed mutant wasp — courtesy of its experiments with cutting edge CRISPR gene-splicing technology.“We used CRISPR/Cas9 to generate mutations in the DNA of an important model organism, the parastoid wasp nasonia vitripennis,” Omar Akbari, the assistant professor of entomology who led the research, told Digital Trends.“This is exciting as it gives researchers a tool for the first time to mutate genes of interest, allowing researchers to study the interesting biology of this organism.”

The thirteen year-old Opportunity rover is moving on from the region of Mars it's been exploring since 2014.Opportunity has spent the last 30 months at “Cape Tribulation”, a spot near the rim of the Endeavour Crater.The Cape's yielded all sorts of insights from finds like an outcrop of clay-like minerals and some interesting erosion patterns.It's also been the high point, in terms of altitude, during the rover's wanderings.NASA now wants to see how things change from up on high to down low, so will send Opportunity down a feature called “Perseverance Valley”.Doing so will give us the chance to guess at whether it was carved by wind – in which case we'll see a chaotic collection of large rocks – or if liquid was involved.

Three documentaries in this year’s Tribeca Film Festival (April 19-30) intersect to evoke a single arc of American injustice that has not merely gone unredressed but been continually defended and perpetuated.Each one usefully and engagingly displays a crucial facet of the backstory to the current misrule in the U.S.The New York City police officer Frank Serpico’s lonely fight against police corruption, in the nineteen-sixties and early seventies, has been enshrined in legend by Sidney Lumet’s 1973 drama starring Al Pacino.In the documentary “Frank Serpico,” by Antonino D’Ambrosio, the protagonist, now eighty-one years old, tells his story on camera for the first time.The director takes Serpico on a tour of landmarks from his earlier years, including the Crown Heights storefront where his father had a shoe-repair shop (and where young Frank first encountered police corruption) and the Williamsburg building where, in 1971, he was shot in the head during a drug bust under still unexplained circumstances that suggest police collusion in an effort to thwart his testimony.D’Ambrosio adorns these stories with sidebars that range from painful (Serpico’s uneasy reunion with Arthur Cesare, one of the officers present at that fateful bust) to wondrous (Serpico’s discussion of the original plans for Lumet’s movie, which was to be directed by John Avildsen and to star Serpico as himself).

United Airlines is making headlines after forcibly removing a passenger from an overbooked flight.The behavior was absolutely avoidable, but here’s the thing—United started out by trying to look out for employees’ and customers’ best interests.They prioritized their employees, which consumers generally praise, but current ticketing technology and rigid policies backed the crew into a corner, leading to bad decisions riddled with human error.The airline makes that flight every day, 365 days a year, and has huge stockpiles of weather, flight performance, and passenger data.Airlines have gotten really good at using technology to strategically overbook flights to maximize profits and company value, but have failed to expand their capabilities beyond online ticket sales and mobile check in.To solve persistent customer relations problems, airlines need to start investing in Augmented Intelligence (AI) to get closer to customers at every stage of their journey to provide better passenger experiences.

It seems like every new fitness band on the market has a built-in heart-rate sensor, but now headphone companies are baking sensors into their devices, too.That’s why companies like Samsung, JBL, Jabra, and Bose are shipping biosensing Bluetooth earphones designed for workouts.What sets these headphones apart is Vi herself, a voice coach rooted in artificial intelligence that guides you through your workouts.Also included in the box are a small carrying case and a USB charger.To power on the headphones, press the multifunction button on the right side of the neckband.Even when giving you a readout of your pace, mileage, and heart rate, Vi sounds like a person and not a bot.

The rapid inclusion of embedded sensors and internet connectivity is turning most of the appliances we use into “smart devices” that can respond to our voice commands, while generating masses of data that is in turn analyzed in edge-of-network hub computers or the cloud.These new applications are challenging the industry to deliver much more computation capability at an improved affordability level.Supplying this demand for more computation is especially challenging — the Moore’s Law pace of semiconductor advancements has slowed down.Moore’s Law is defined as the trend for the doubling of the number of transistors on a chip about every two years through ever smaller circuitry, producing greater performance and energy efficiency.New semiconductor technology nodes will still bring significant miniaturization and lower power over the next decade, but the cost is increasing and the historical improvements in speed are not achieved.So we face a dichotomy as the historical improvements of Moore’s Law slow, while new compute-intensive applications require exponentially more capability.

Australia's Commonwealth Ombudsman has published its report (PDF) on Centrelink’s automated debt raising and recovery system and found that while it is capable of correctly assessing debts, the agency was aware it had flaws and did little to prevent them.In early 2017 the system became the subject of considerable controversy as customers complained it was incorrectly calculating debts and that explaining that to Centrelink dumped them into a bureaucratic whirlpool and threatened them with penalties as they tried to escape by explaining the true nature of their debt (or lack thereof).Many of those who hit trouble with the program did so because it used a small sample of data about their incomes and averaged it to assume annual incomes well beyond those that individuals received.Centrelink then calculated eligibility for payments on the basis of an annual average, rather than nearly-always-lower part-of-year-incomes that made its customers eligible for payments.Many non-responsive clients reported that Centrelink had tried to reach them at old addresses and therefore received debt notices based on averaged incomes.Acting commonwealth Ombudsman Richard Glenn's report does find that OCI is capable of calculating debts correctly.
