Chinese scientists have created the largest virtual universe on Sunway TaihuLight, the world’s fastest computer, according to a lead researcher on the project.Experts said that China was learning to take full advantage of its raw calculation power, which had grown way beyond that of other nations in recent years, and recreating the universe was just the first step.The development of the next generation of high-performance computers will allow researchers to work in tandem with other advanced technological facilities, such as the world’s largest radio telescope, to unlock the secrets of the universe.Gao Liang, chair scientist of the computational cosmology group in the National Astronomical Observatories, Chinese Academy of Sciences in Beijing, said they simulated the birth and early expansion of the universe using 10 trillion digital particles.This project’s scale was five times greater than that of the previous record, which was achieved last month by astrophysicists at the University of Zurich in Switzerland, he added.The work was carried out at the National Supercomputer Centre in Wuxi, Jiangwu two months ago.

Security software firm Kaspersky has just launched a free antivirus for PC users, promising total protection for your files and oversight of your web traffic for malicious activity.The company says it’s happy to offer its service at no charge for those who can’t afford the $50 fee for its paid product – but do you really need a third-party antivirus tool?If, like 500 million others, you’re on Windows 10, you already have Windows Defender built in.Microsoft’s own tool does a pretty good job of keeping computers free of nasty viruses and doesn’t hog system resources.The folks at AV-Test.org gave it a 5.5 / 6.0 protection score, which isn’t half bad for an app that you don’t even need to download.Meanwhile, Kaspersky’s full package, which is called Internet Security and was at v17.0 as of June when it was tested, got perfect scores of 6.0/6.0 for protection, performance and usability.

The smart sticker attaches to any piece of clothing and connects to wearer's phone via Bluetooth.In a bid to combat child sexual abuse, college campus assault and abuse of elderly and disabled, MIT researcher Manisha Mohan has created a smart device that detects, communicates and helps prevent sexual assault in real time.The device, called Intrepid, is a smart sticker that attaches to any piece of clothing and connects to an app on the user's smartphone via Bluetooth.It responds to initial signs of assault such as forced disrobing and sends out a distress signal to trusted contacts selected by the wearer on the accompanying app.The proposed smart sticker operates in two modes – active and passive.The active mode is for instances when the victim is "unconscious or cannot fight against the assaulter", while the passive mode allows the victim self-actuate the safety mechanism.

While the recent WannaCry and Petya attacks brought the file-encrypting malware to the attention of a global audience twice in as many months, ransomware has been rising up the list of corporate cybersecurity headaches for years.Law enforcement organisations and cybersecurity companies around the world have attempted to do what they can to disrupt ransomware -- whether through takedowns of cybercriminal gangs by the authorities or security companies finding and providing decryption keys.But this disjointed approach can only get so far in the modern hyper-connected world in which criminals cooperate across international borders and time zones.It's why the No More Ransom initiative was launched a year ago, with the idea of bringing together law enforcement and private industry to combine efforts in the fight against cybercrime."It's the idea of everyone bringing what they're best at to the table to jointly try and tackle the biggest threat that we see out there," says Steve Wilson, head of Europol's Cybercrime Centre (EC3).Launched jointly by Europol, the Dutch National Police, McAfee (then Intel Security), and Kaspersky Lab on July 25 2016, No More Ransom provided keys to unlocking encrypted files, as well as information on how to avoid succumbing to ransomware in the first place.

Staying safe in the face of severe weather is all about having sufficient warning.NOAA's new system could give people the gift of time.When it comes to surviving natural disasters, time is of the essence.Even a few extra minutes of notice can be the difference between life and death, but now, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) researchers believe that they’ve created a forecast model that can give not minutes, but hours of advance notice regarding severe weather.In May, NOAA conducted its first field test of a new Warn-on-Forecast system, described as a “new research tool that has the potential to dramatically improve predictions of extreme weather at specific locations up to three hours in advance.” On May 16, forecasters were able to alert residents of western Oklahoma to the possibility of large hail and tornadoes 90 minutes before the severe weather touched down.“We had a picture of the storms and their evolution before they became life-threatening,” said Todd Lindley, science operations officer with the NOAA NWS Norman Forecast Office in Oklahoma.

It was a bit of a surprise when Huawei announced last year that it teamed up with Porsche Design to bring out a luxurious and more powerful version of the Mate 9.Then again, with BlackBerry practically out of the scene, the luxury design company needed a new partner in the smartphone market.Also surprisingly, however, is that the partnership actually went beyond just the conventional smartphones.Alluded to in the past, the Porsche Design Huawei Smartwatch has just been launched, with much fuss or fanfare, in Europe and the UK, giving Android Wear users yet another luxury option.There is actually no shortage of luxury Android Wear pieces.Especially with some of the older Android Wear champions, like Motorola, bowing out of the scene.

But bosses can't promise it will be fully complete on timeTransport for London has tentatively started testing 4G on the Tube for emergency services.TfL's CTO said he was not "absolutely confident" it would be complete by January, 2019, however.The £2.9bn Airwave contract, which dates from 2000, will be switched off by 2020 and replaced by the 4G Emergency Services Network (ESN) run by EE.Earlier this year, Parliament's Public Accounts Committee (PAC) warned the UK Home Office's ESN programme "may require more testing and assurance work than the current December 2019 delivery date seems to allow for."Shashi Verma, CTO and director of customer experience at TfL, told the Greater London Authority Oversight Committee he was confident in the technology – but said the timescales the body is aiming for could not be guaranteed.

Laboratory equipment is one of the largest cost factors in neuroscience.However, many experiments can be performed with good results using self-assembled setups involving 3-D printed components and self-programmed electronics.The intricate equipment necessary for modern neuroscience experiments can easily cost tens or even hundreds of thousands of Euros when relying on commercially available solutions, confining top-level research and scientific training to well-endowed institutes in rich countries."FlyPi" can perform many standard lab protocols, including light and fluorescence microscopy, optogenetics, thermogenetics, and behavioural studies on small animals such as roundworms, fruit flies, zebrafish larvae.The design is based on a 3-D printed framework holding a Raspberry Pi computer and camera, cheap LEDs for lighting and simple lenses, as well as optical and thermal control circuits based on Arduino, an open-source microcontroller.Taken together, the components cost less than 100 Euros for the basic system, and can be modified to suit the lab's purposes.

Many years ago, I used to live near a New England Comics store.That company is behind the incredibly fun character, the Tick.You may have seen the excellent cartoon that ran on Fox or the short-lived live-action show (that also ran on Fox).This time, the Tick is back for another round with 10 episodes arriving in late August.Otherwise, Amazon picks up a smattering of new movies in the eighth month of the year.You could start five-movie binge of the "Saw" movies, which might be better suited for Halloween.

Mobilerna med störst batterikapacitet återfinns fortfarande i mellan- och budgetsegmenten, då tillverkare anser att de som lägger stora pengar på en smartphone prioriterar en tunn och lätt konstruktion.Senaste exemplet är Panasonic P55 Max som lanserats i Indien, med ett lokalt pris på motsvarande 1100 kronor.Telefonen kör Android 7.0 och erbjuder en 5,5-tumsskärm (720p/2.5D-glas), chippet MediaTek MT6737, 3GB arbetsminne, 16GB lagring, minneskortsplats – och ett batteri med hela 5000mAh.Tillsammans med HD-upplösningen bör kunder kunna räkna med en maratonlöpare.Kamerakombinationen består av en 13MP-sensor baktill och en 5MP-kamera på framsidan.I en undersökning från i våras ansåg flest att bättre batteritid är största anledningen att uppgradera, men det verkar dröja innan riktigt stora batterier blir vanligt förekommande i toppsegmentet.

A company called Nexus Studios says it tested Apple’s ARKit tracking technology with a Cardboard VR headset and found it to do a suitable job.Tilt Brush artwork is said to have been placed throughout an outdoor environment with point clouds displayed in VR to show the location of real-world objects — operating as a kind of safety system.“It’s possible to do both pass-through AR (where the single camera feed is displayed to both eyes), as well as inside out positional tracking for VR at around 60 frames per second on an iPhone 7,” according to the company.“That’s not enough for quick head movements, but as long as you are walking around and observing at a ‘gallery pace,’ the tracking does a pretty good job of keeping you in the right spot.”We reached out for more information about the project and the quality of the tracking.“The tracking is great, to be honest,” wrote Luke Ritchie, who heads a division of Nexus Studios called Interactive Arts, in an email.
