Tropical Storm Nesat formed early on July 26 just east of the Philippines and NASA's Aqua satellite passed overhead gathering temperature data to determine the location of the most powerful storms.Imagery showed strong storms from Nesat's western side were affecting the central Philippines.Infrared satellite imagery from the Atmospheric Infrared Sounder or AIRS instrument that flies aboard NASA's Aqua satellite taken on July 26 at 0529 UTC (1:29 a.m. EDT) provided a look at the temperatures of Nesat's clouds.In infrared imagery, the coldest cloud tops indicate towering thunderstorms high into the troposphere.The colder the clouds, the stronger the storms.AIRS data showed that some cloud tops around the center of circulation were as cold as minus 63 degrees Fahrenheit or minus 53 degrees Celsius.

Is it counterintuitive to predict that one of the impacts of virtual reality will be better indoor maps of the reality we are already in?The device already gathers all kinds of data – room dimensions, furniture position and distances between items – data that could help inform next-generation IoT devices.To make indoor maps at scale we need technologies that are more capable of recognizing and distinguishing between walls, furniture and other items.They need to be accurate, too.Think about spatial technology to help audio equipment manufacturers build better sound stages in your home; intelligent and contextual smart lighting systems; heating and ventilation design.Apple, Amazon, Microsoft, Google, all four firms are chasing this kind of data.

BBCdirector general Tony Hall has sought to get back on the front foot following a weekend of rancor in the wake of the unprecedented decision to publish pay details for all of its top presenting talent.The move drew immediate criticism from more than 40 female stars; including Fiona Bruce, Clare Balding and Victoria Derbyshire, who signed a letter demanding immediate action to close a yawning gender pay gap between them and their male colleagues.Responding to this challenge Hall has vowed to do more to harmonise pay, declaring that his vision was to ensure that the BBC became an ‘exemplar on gender and diversity’.In practical terms this fits into ongoing moves to close the gap by 2020 although this is unlikely to satisfy the signatories, who are demanding that action be taken to end discrimination ‘now’.Hall said: “There will be wider consultation meetings over the next two months so we can accelerate further change in the autumn.I would obviously value your contribution and thinking as part of this process.

Closing unused apps on your iPhone won't improve its battery life.I repeat, opening up the multitasking window and swiping apps off the screen won't help your iPhone get through the day.This myth that it does has persisted for years.Apple blogger and podcaster John Gruber said earlier this week it's the "single biggest misconception about iOS," the software that iPhones run on.Craig Federighi, the head of software development at Apple, replied: "No and No.The myth that closing unused apps can save battery life has been long-running and pernicious.

Microsoft has officially confirmed that devices built around Intel's Clover Trail Atom processors will not be receiving the Windows 10 Creators Update, nor any future feature update for Windows 10, though security updates will be made available until January 2023.When Microsoft announced Windows 10 - skipping Windows 9 - the company positioned it as the last version of Windows anyone would ever need, offering users of older Windows releases to upgrade to the new version for free and promising continued updates as it shifted its model away from regular paid releases to continuous free updates.This 'Windows as a Service' model only really works if no uses are left behind, but earlier this week Acer confirmed that the Windows 10 Creators Update was incompatible with Clover Trail systems, either installing with graphical glitches or simply failing to install at all.At the time, Acer suggested there might be hope by blaming buggy graphics drivers and claiming to be working with Microsoft to 'help provide compatible drivers to address this incompatibility.'Microsoft, though, has finally broken its silence on the matter to dash such hopes: Windows 10 Creators Update, and all future releases of Windows 10, will not be compatible with any Clover Trail Atom systems.'With Windows 10, we introduced Windows as a Service, a model for continuous value delivery via twice annual feature updates and monthly quality updates.

Who owns all that valuable training info?How technology giants own and use your data will be a focus for our noble and learned friends on the new House of Lords Select Committee on Artificial Intelligence.The Parliamentary committee yesterday announced the UK's first public inquiry "to consider the economic, ethical and social implications of advances in artificial intelligence".Interestingly, among the areas on which the committee is inviting evidence, we spotted...The data-based monopolies of some large corporations.One of the few times Parliament has discussed AI was in a debate on "New Technologies" in 1985, when Nicholas Fairfax, the Lord Fairfax of Cameron, a peerage in Scotland, worried about:

Stiff neck, headache, tingling in your fingers.You list your symptoms, answer a few questions about how long they’ve lasted and whether they seem to be getting worse.So far, more than 500,000 people have used it.Ada is one of several AI-driven apps to hit the market in the last few months, and they are set to shake up healthcare.For Ali Parsa, founder of the company behind one of these apps, Babylon, it’s about making healthcare a basic utility.“How do I make it so damn cheap that everybody can afford it?” he says.

There is no greater discount in MTG shares.But it is a great long term buy for those who believe in e-sports, writing analysis service ... Börsplus.No more discount to be found not in the MTG and now and it looks better to buy Kinnevik instead where you get more than double the discount and the greater the diversification of risk.It writes the SvD Börsplus in an update after the mediekoncernens quarterly report.the analysis service at the same time brings height to reflect the increase in the MTGx continues at a high rate, and at the same time as the dividends ticks in may MTG attract a little bit more - even if Börsplus find it difficult to see the values up the 400 dollars that would be required to put a buying advice."the Company does appear to have a great job both with handling their mature assets and add value to the new.

As obvious as that statement is, it’s stunning how much data is unnecessarily shared with cloud providers and others.First, the time and effort needed to be remove data that the third party doesn’t truly need from the data that is needed can make the ROI seem unattractive.As in "I’m probably safe trusting Google/Microsoft/Amazon/Rackspace, etc."Even if you choose to assume that their security is stellar — it isn’t — what about competitive issues?The way many enterprises handle data — especially data that is either created by or managed by mobile devices — makes it truly difficult to easily separate the critical from the non-essential.The approach they are proposing is designed to deal with a very limited issue: privacy and security issues involving ride-sharing services such as Uber and Lyft.

Focusing more on productivity and battery life for working on the go, these sort of laptops aren’t equipped with enough integrated graphics horsepower to take on today’s popular triple-A titles.It is actually possible to game on an ultrabook, it’s just a matter of choosing the game and its settings carefully such that it’s not too intensive for the 15W Intel CPU in most low-power laptops.The ThinkPad X1 Carbon we used is the entry-level model with an Intel Kaby Lake Core i5-7200U, 8GB of RAM and a 1080p display.The i5-7200U is essentially the base U-series CPU you’ll find in ultraportables, with two cores, four threads, a base clock of 2.5 GHz, and a boost clock of 3.1 GHz.The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt16 FPS with horrible input lag

The United States is a democracy, where every citizen has the right to be treated fairly by the legal system, but unfortunately things don’t always work out that way.Fighting something as simple as a parking ticket can be a minefield of confusing regulations and obscure rules that seem to have been designed specifically to overwhelm the average person.Now, a ‘robot lawyer’ is trying to change that, and after already helping to get nearly 400,000 tickets thrown out, the tool is available for everyone in the United States.The bot, called DoNotPay, was designed and built by a Stanford University student named Joshua Browder.He’s dubbed the AI-powered bot “the world’s first robot lawyer,” and in trials in New York and Seattle, as well as the UK, the tool has performed a fantastic public service.Now he’s opening up the chat bot to everyone in the US.

WASHINGTON -- Researchers have developed a fast and practical molecular-scale imaging technique that could let scientists view never-before-seen dynamics of biological processes involved in neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer's disease and multiple sclerosis.The new technique reveals a sample's chemical makeup as well as the orientation of molecules making up that sample, information that can be used to understand how molecules are behaving.The faster speed means it will be possible for the first time to watch disease progression in living animal models at the molecular level.In Optica, The Optical Society's journal for high impact research, researchers led by Sophie Brasselet of the Institut Fresnel, CNRS, Aix Marseille Université, France, report their new technique, called high-speed polarization resolved coherent Raman scattering imaging.They used artificial lipid membranes to demonstrate the technique's capabilities for enhancing neurological research.The artificial membranes used in the study are made of packed layers of lipids that are similar to those found in the myelin sheath that covers axons to help electrical impulses move quickly and efficiently.

But, while you were poppin’ bottles and praising bespectacled creative directors, I was with 60,000 screaming teenagers and the YouTube/ Instagram stars they worship in California at VidCon.If your brand or agency wants to be around in 10 years time, you need to stay culturally relevant.But then Cannes has always been backwards looking, and VidCon is much more about the future.We should be treating Creators like production partners – ask for treatments, storyboards, scripts and collaborate with them.They’re a lot more than just a man with a GoPro, now.You might be better off working with three creators at 100k followers each than with one creator with 3m followers

It’s usually taken to mean a more or less stable fixture that a device slots into to charge as well as extend its capabilities via peripherals.A more precise name would be “Hi-Stand Charger”, and it does describe it as a “Charger & Bracket 2in1”.But that isn’t as catchy as “Hi-Dock” and I’m splitting hairs.From afar and with all flaps closed, it looks almost like a MacBook Pro power adapter.The four flaps, divided between two opposite sides, each hide a USB port.That translates to supporting the following power rates: 3.6-6.5V/3A, 6.5V-9V/2A, and 9V-12V/1.5A.
