Ordet algoritm används flitigt just nu, ibland lite slarvigt.Om man ska tro Wikipedia är en algoritm en ”en effektiv metod för att beräkna en funktion i ett ändligt utrymme och under en ändlig tidsrymd, som kan beskrivas med ett formellt språk”.När ordet algoritm används i dagligt tal syftar det ofta på att använda mjukvara för att automatisera analyser som ligger till grund för beslut.Man har kommit längst med det här inom värdepappershandel, därav begrepp som ” algorithmic trading”.Läs också: Offensiv från Google och Microsoft hotar det svenska BI-undretOm det här låter lockande så inställer sig frågan om hur man blir ett algoritmiskt företag.

Astonishing attention to detail, superb build quality, and the latest tech inside: This is a true Swiss smartwatch for the connoisseurIf you want the real deal, by which we mean a smartwatch with true Swiss-made credentials, there is only one choice: the new Tag Heuer Connected Modular 45.It’s the second smartwatch from Tag Heuer, following the Carrera Connected last year, and once again Intel has been heavily involved with the device’s creation.The two companies collaborated so closely, the end result combines Intel’s technical know-how and Tag Heuer’s passion for watches in a way that truly makes it stand apart from the rest.Intel’s Jerry Bautista, vice president of New Technology, sat down with Digital Trends at the Baselworld 2017 trade show to give us a peek at the watch in detail, share how the relationship between the two companies worked, and the lengths both went to in order to produce it.For example, to ensure a round screen was used on the first model — a Tag Heuer requirement — Intel had to build the electronics that were hidden by the flat-tire screen design into the section with the “Swiss Made” inscription on the body.

Employers also place great demands on the staff they employ, to be up to date in the latest programming language.But at the same time makes the lack that even those who are recent graduates have great chances to get a job, " says Annelie Almérus.Despite the form of foreign workers, no more competition for the Swedish it-the developers, because the demand for the occupation is so large.– On the it side of a company or a public employer does not work so it can stop up the whole of the processes and thus it costs money.however, The employee is good at keeping themselves up to date and learn new things.

Yhdysvallat ja Britannia ilmoittivat ryhtyvänsä rajoittamaan mukana kannettavan elektroniikan käyttöä lentokoneissa, jotka tulevat muutamasta muslimienemmistöisestä maasta Lähi-idästä ja Pohjois-Afrikasta, kertoo uutistoimisto Reuters.Samaan asiaan otti kantaa keskiviikkona myös Saksa, joka kertoi, että sillä ei puolestaan ole aikeita rajoittaa lennoille tuotavaa elektroniikkaa minkään maan lennoilla.Asiasta kertoi Saksan sisäministeriön tiedottaja, joka sanoi, että hallitusta on informoitu Yhdysvaltain käyttöönottamista toimenpiteistä.”Toimenpiteet eivät vaikuta Saksan lentokenttiin.Vastaavanlaisia sääntöjä ei ole tällä hetkellä suunnitteilla Saksassa”, tiedottaja sanoi.

Iron Fist was about to launch on Netflix, adding a fourth Defender to the streaming service’s stable of Marvel characters.And it is in these circumstances that the internet knows what to do: pile on.For example, Vox called the show “an ill-conceived, poorly written disaster”.And GQ called it a “big superhero flop”.And, umm, we called it Marvel and Netflix’s First Big Failure.How critical opinion will herd around a specific view, partially distinct from whatever the critics are supposed to be critiquing.

Japan is dealing with what economists call a "demographic time bomb."Through a vicious cycle of low fertility and low consumer spending, the country's economy has gradually shrunk over the last 25 years.People are living longer, and they're heaping greater social-security costs onto younger generations who aren't having kids to replace them — thereby furthering the cycle.Here are some of the most visible signs in daily life that the time bomb is ticking.

Sorry, fellow penny pinchers: Less than a year after reintroducing a cheaper 60 kWh battery into its Model S lineup, Tesla will kill off that option in order to “simplify the ordering process.” It sounds like Tesla’s doing that because most people just buy the more expensive version or upgrade to it later.Tesla reintroduced the 60 kWh battery pack in June 2016 with a starting price of $66,000, which went up to $68,000 just a few months later in November.The cheaper RWD option had a zero-to-60 time of 5.5 seconds and a range of 210 miles at the time of the reintroduction, while the AWD option was faster and had a greater range.But the cheaper Model S options, while they still exist, don’t actually have 60 kWh batteries.The 60 kWh cars come with a 75 kWh battery that runs at 80 percent so that buyers have the potential for an easy upgrade.The upgrade to run the 75 kWh battery at its full capacity came with a price tag of $9,500.

I think stock photos are fake and not appealing for what I'm doing so I'm trying to find natural photos taken in people's homes by real people.I need them to be as large as possible as well.I've been searching for hours on Google, Flickr, and even Bing, but I can't seem to find what I'm looking for.Best case: I need someone's living room showing a few family members and a big TV.Could be day or night so long as it's authentic.

For many gym goers, heart rate tracking means a choice between a chest strap or a fitness tracker on the wrist.It’ll need a proper test to check out just how hardcore they are, but, from the ear-hooks to the buds themselves, these feel like a set of in-ears that have been built to take a knock.Rather than staying snug with a tight-fitting earbud and hook, the UA ‘phones rely on large rubber ear discs which, I imagine, has something to do with the heart rate sensor sitting inside one of them.These discs come in four sizes and are designed to sit snugly in the larger, outer area of your ear.It’s similar to those earpieces you see TV presenters use, and it means the pressure doesn’t sit on your inner ear - and keeps things properly fixed.I took part in a high-intensity 30-minute workout and there wasn’t a single moment where the headphones felt like they’d fall out.

This week in The Expanse, we started to see some of the human fallout from the battle above Ganymede through the eyes of Praxidike Meng, an agricultural researcher working on the moon to design better soybeans.Things get worse for him when the captain of the freighter airlocks all of the Earther and Martian refugees, including his friend Doris.Anderson Dawes manages to escape Tycho with the Protogen scientist Cortazar, but Naomi and Drummer track down the protomolecule transmission he was listening to; it's coming from Ganymede.The crew of the Roci start looking into Protogen's activity on the Jovian moon, which leads them to... Meng.What's more, it's unlikely that Mei or Strickland were killed when the dome was breached.Finally, the factional infighting within the OPA took an ugly turn on Tycho.

When we get press releases about new TVS, it is usually – if not always – with an assurance that this year's product is a beautiful piece of furniture that will become a central part of the decor in the living room.But in the end, we always see a large black domed glass tile covers a large part of the wall or occupying the most of the location on top of the bench.And elegance tend to be about to, once again, it has been possible to cut a couple of millimetres of the thickness of the frame around the screen.in other words, it was with a large dose of skepticism, we received an invitation to the Samsung has been released worldwide by a TV that purported to change the way we view TV.to really highlight the event, Samsung had rented the basement under the Louvre museum in Paris and invited hundreds of teknikjournalister from all over the world.But even the throngs of livsstilsreportrar and fashion bloggers was influgna because the news was about the lifestyle.

Researchers at Vanderbilt University have found a secondary set of odour sensors on female malarial mosquitoes that appear to be specifically tuned to sniff out humans.The modus operandi of the female mosquito is simple, yet effective: find a host, suck its blood, lay a batch of eggs.To find a host, female mosquitoes use their highly specialised odour sensors to detect traces of carbon dioxide exhaled by animals.As the insect gets nearer to a potential target, other scents exuded by the animal lets it know whether it’s a desirable host.For malarial mosquitoes, humans are prime targets; malaria and malarial mosquitoes have co-evolved, where the virus takes advantage of a unique component found in human blood that allows the disease to grow.After consuming her blood meal, the mosquito changes focus, and uses her sensitive sense of smell to search for stagnant water, where she lays her eggs.

The latest version of Google Chrome (which is available now) will finally do something to prevent background tabs from killing your laptop’s battery.Google Chrome is the world’s most popular web browser, but anyone who uses it heavily on a laptop knows that with a lot of tabs open in the background, your battery life—as well as your computer’s performance—can come to a grinding halt.Web pages now contain so much data—and are often complex apps themselves—that they suck power and CPU time, even when not actively used.Sure, there are workarounds, but it would be much better for everyone if Google Chrome could just handle background processes and tabs more efficientlyWay back in September, the Google Chrome team promised to do just that.As the official Chromium blog explains, Chrome 57 introduces a new

Last night, the National Collegiate Athletic Association announced the official bracket for this year's NCAA men's basketball tournament -- opening the floodgates to three weeks of massive sports gambling within the United States.However, for a select few (such as here and here), operating March Madness pools may open the door to substantial scrutiny under federal and state gaming laws.To determine whether any NCAA Tournament pools constitutes an illegal game of “chance,” courts will typically apply one of three tests – a ‘predominant purpose’ test, an ‘any chance’ test, or a ‘gambling instinct’ test.However, some states state that contents that involve picking future contingent events are treated as akin to chance, even despite technical mathematical rations/Irrespective of what test a court were to ultimately apply, the likelihood that an NCAA Tournament pool being found to involve chance is very high based on historic court precedent.For example, the Pennsylvania Superior Court, despite applying one of the most liberal tests, explained in its 1953 case Commonwealth v. Laniewski that “it is common knowledge that the predictions [of multiple real-world sporting events] even among these so-called ‘experts’ are far from infallible.”

It was revealed earlier this year that Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer would be stepping down from the company’s board of directors once Verizon completes its acquisition of the Internet pioneer.On Monday, we learned that her severance package will be valued at more than $23 million.In a filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission, Yahoo said Mayer would walk away with roughly $3 million in cash, nearly $20 million in equity and about $25,000 in medical-related benefits if she is fired or leaves for good cause within a year.That’s far less than the estimated $57 million in severance expected to come her way as of last year but a sizable chunk of change nevertheless.In light of the two massive security breaches the company failed to disclose from 2013 and 2014, Mayer earlier this month said she would forego her annual bonus and equity grant.The executive said it was her desire that the bonuses be redistributed to the company’s employees that contributed to Yahoo’s success in 2016.
