Automationsbranschen behöver nytänkande för att utveckla svensk industri.Och varje år arrangeras Automation Student där bästa examensarbetet inom automationsområdet premieras.– Vi vill gärna uppmärksamma det goda arbetet som läggs ner för att utveckla och förbättra industrin, säger Catarina Berglund, processledare på Automation Region, som ligger bakom tävlingen tillsammans med branschorganisationen Svensk Automation och automationsmässan Scanautomatic & Processteknik.Priset delas ut vid konferensen Automation Summit på torsdag.Två lag från Chalmers och ett lag från KTH har tagit sig till final i 2017 års studenttävling.Chalmersstudenterna Matilda Anulf och Yvette Kroon har genomfört sitt examensarbete på företaget GKN Aerospace som tillverkar avancerade komponenter för flyg- och rymdindustrin.
If you're a big fan of Stephen King, your arcane knowledge of the people, places and supernatural events that appear in his stories will finally pay off.King has teamed up with executive producer J.J. Abrams again for a TV series that will link some of his iconic characters and horrifying events to the mysterious locale of Castle Rock, Maine.In the new trailer that landed Sunday, we get more hints at what's to come in the upcoming anthology series "Castle Rock," debuting on Hulu in 2018.Plenty of cryptic moments fill the new trailer including a missing child poster, a piano fallen through a floor, a burning VHS tape, a funeral procession, a waving mascot standing on a rooftop... the list goes on.The prison from "The Shawshank Redemption" also turns up a few times in the trailer with scenes of a possible prison execution via lethal injection, prison inmates lining up for cell inspection, and an official Shawshank Penitentiary car sinking into a lake.There are new faces like André Holland as Henry Deaver, Melanie Lynskey as Molly Strand, and a few familiar faces too like Sissy Spacek who previously portrayed the telekinetic Carrie, but now portrays Ruth Deaver.
As innovative technologies reshaped our lives, ambitious founders became the icons of the age.If you’re unfamiliar with the term, intrapreneurship is similar to entrepreneurship except it occurs inside an existing company.They allow companies to leverage their best and brightest thinkers, and they offer talented workers autonomy over their careers.Check out VB Summit on October 23-24 in Berkeley, a high-level, invite-only AI event for business leaders.As AI transforms workplaces and employees’ roles within their organizations, it could also give rise to a more entrepreneurially-minded workforce.Leave the grunt work to AI
The day news broke that a Google employee had written a 10-page document trashing diversity efforts and suggesting women are biologically unsuited to work in the industry, she was at Juniper, virtually across the street from Google's Sunnyvale campus, trying to make sense of it all.The summer had been great so far.Over three days at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida, women at all career stages gather to listen to speakers, attend sessions, network, look for jobs, or just be reminded that even if they're the only woman on their team at work, they're definitely not the only woman in the industry.A 2016 report from IT consulting firm Accenture found that by missing out on tech gigs, women could be missing out on nearly $299 billion in economic opportunity by 2025.Companies handed out swag and set up igloos, tiki huts and brightly colored signs to draw job seekers toward recruiters.They know they could end up sitting near the writer of the next anti-diversity document.
The Party allows you to enter the world of an autistic teenager, Layla, who is at a surprise birthday celebration.You will hear her thoughts about what she is experiencing and how it is affecting her, and share the sensory overload that leads to a meltdown (an intense response to an overwhelming situation).The drama provides viewers with a powerful first-person perspective on the challenges that social situations may present to someone on the autism spectrum.Autism affects more than one in 100 people in the UK.Compared with autistic males, females on the autism spectrum are more likely to go unrecognised and unsupported, often with severe consequences for their wellbeing and mental health.This is partly because the diagnostic conventions are biased towards males, meaning they are insensitive to more female-typical autism presentations.
An anonymous reader shares a report: Toymaker Mattel has shelved plans to build an "all-in-one voice-controlled smart baby monitor," after complaints about the device were raised by privacy advocates and child psychologists.According to a report from The Washington Post, the company said in a statement that the device, named Aristotle, did not "fully align with Mattel's new technology strategy" and would not be "[brought] to the marketplace."Aristotle was unveiled back in January this year by Mattel's Nabi brand.It combined the smart speaker and digital assistant functionality of Amazon's Echo with a connected camera that acted as a baby monitor.But the Aristotle was intended to be a much more active presence in children's lives than an Echo speaker, with Mattel claiming it would read them bedtime stories, soothe them if they cried in the night, and even teach them their ABCs.A petition asking Mattel not to release the Aristotle gained more than 15,000 signatories.
Most of us never consider the durability of our electronic devices outside of their ability to withstand a splash of water or what will happen if we drop them on the sidewalk.But some expect more from their gadgets, which is why SanDisk has introduced a new line of SD and microSD cards that are built to withstand extreme temperatures.Applications of the new industrial SD cards (first noticed by AnandTech on Wednesday) include surveillance cameras, drones, factory automation and other use cases where unusual climate could come into play.SanDisk has announced three different sets of industrial cards.First up are the standard SD cards, with capacities ranging from 8 – 64GB and can operating temperatures as low as -25 C (-13 F) and as high as 85 C (176 F).There are also industrial microSD cards, which feature the same operating temperature, but go up to 128GB.
If you’ve got a few hundred dollars to spend on a backpack, there are now plenty of premium options out there to suit a variety of needs and styles.Huru, a new brand that’s making its debut with a Kickstarter campaign, is adding its own creation to the mix, and it’s certainly a compelling one.I filled it with essentials for a two-week trip to China to see if it’s worth $300; here’s what I learned.Let’s start with the basics: there’s a large central compartment that you can open like a suitcase, as well as a protected section within for documents.On the front are two pockets, the one up top (near the buckle) being large enough to store plenty of tech accessories like travel adaptors, battery packs and external hard drives; the lower pocket is slimmer and can hold things like a notepad and boarding passes.I also frequently had trouble getting my 15-inch Dell Inspiron 7548 in and out of there at airport security checks, which meant that I’d always have to take my backpack off to the side to repack.
The Google Pixel event has wrapped and we got a good look at a bunch of new hardware lineup this year: the second generation of Pixel smartphones, new Google Homes, a Pixelbook, and a surprise new Google camera that uses artificial intelligence to snap pictures and videos of your family.Is it as weird as it sounds?If you missed the keynote where Google presented everything, here’s a recap of everything Google announced in about two hours cut into a 19-minute video so you can see for yourself if these new products will make it to your shopping list this holiday season.

A couple of weeks ago, we hosted the writer and speaker Rachel Botsman, who treated a small group of Zone friends to a preview of her new book 'Who Can You Trust?'The book argues that technology is driving a fundamental shift in the nature of trust.The era of institutional trust is coming to an end – we simply don’t trust governments, brands, banks, companies or charities the way that we used to.It can’t be created or destroyed – it merely takes on new forms.And technology is ushering in a new era, where institutional trust is being replaced by distributed trust.We can buy and sell on Ebay, where buyers can rate sellers and sellers can rate buyers – building enough ‘trust’ to enable $20bn worth of transactions every year.

It can also be hard to find space in your head for another social media app on top of Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, WhatsApp, Pinterest, and whatever crops up.But originally, Snapchat’s biggest draw was its brevity and ephemeral style — no other major social app let you send pics and messages that vanished after a brief period.As Snapchat’s founders said in their first blog post in 2012:And after hearing hilarious stories about emergency detagging of Facebook photos before job interviews and photoshopping blemishes out of candid shots before they hit the Internet, there had to be a better solution.Snapchat, on the other hand, is and always has been more about natural flow of images and the frivolity that comes with no strings attached.Make a short video of you lipsyncing to a Nicki Minaj song.
We all choose to trust someone: our recruiter, our employer, our friends and family and the loosely connected peer groups we have built online.Besides these closely held and trusted relationships, we also look to online influencers – everything from shopping sites and corporate websites to journalists and columnists to sites like Yelp, Angie’s List and Care.com – as credible and reliable sources.And for companies looking to stand out and gain a competitive edge, influence, along with trust, is essential.These two capabilities allow employers and employees new tools for navigating the new world of loosely-connected friendships and relationships.But if executed poorly, people may take you as not an influencer but a scammer.This can provide a great opportunity to stand out as an influencer for the demographic you hope to target.
The dog soon began to associate the taste of the meat with the sound of the bell until salivation became the dog's conditioned response.If the dog did not love meat, the frequent and consistent ringing of the bell would have produced no response other than to irritate the dog.In essence, if advertising is "getting your name out," then branding is "attaching something to your name."York, Lennox, Rheem, RUUD, Carrier, Bryant, Trane, Armstrong, Friedrich and Fedders are leading brands of air conditioners; you've probably heard of some of them.Unlike a mere visual image, a mental image is a complex composite of sight, sound, smell, taste, touch, opinion and mood.Wal-Mart and Dell are big, profitable companies, but neither is a particularly strong brand.
How do I sell more of my custom-made jewelry at festivals and art shows?I make my own jewelry using only sterling silver, gold-filled, and semi-precious stones and crystals.I have been in business for 6 months.Make sure your products are priced right for the show attendees.There are many levels of festivals and art shows -- some are juried and others are not, and there are shows that draw affluent shoppers and neighborhood fairs that draw families on a budget.Pick the right shows to showcase your jewelry to your best prospects.
Here are three fundamental elements necessary for networking success:Apply the law of reciprocity or "givers gain" approach.Don't approach networking thinking, "I did this for you, now what are you going to do for me?"Instead, remember the old adage, "Give and you shall receive."The law of reciprocity substitutes what you stand to gain from the networking relationship with trust and friendship.Look for groups that don't target people just like you, in order to broaden the net you seek to cast for referrals.
the Waves from the black hole favorite among tipped candidates for this year's prize.the Success to finally be able to detect gravitational waves was one of the last decades, the most notable of scientific achievements.But the discovery was announced in February of that year, a month too late to be eligible for the 2016 prize.But this year, it is likely that the discovery thus has a little more radiance than the other in förhandssnacket.But in the Ligo project has several thousand people have been working since then, and contributed to the two american observatories in september 2015 for the first time managed to detect gravitational waves.the Problem is that the Nobel prize is given to that most three people per category.
They’re the way millions of people make smartphone purchasing decisions.Who doesn’t want a smartphone that can charge in minutes instead of hours?Charging standards are a complicated melange of chemistry and physics, and each have their own sets of limitations and poorly publicized incompatibilities.But in the rechargeable lithium-ion batteries that power smartphones, the reactions are “reversible.” When the battery discharges, the chemical reaction produces electricity, and when the battery recharges, the chemical reactions absorb power.Since we’ll be referring to volts, amps, and watts in the course of our discussion, here’s a refresher.Some use a DC to DC converter to change the input voltage, and fancier integrated circuits adjust the resistance between the charger input and the battery terminal to ramp the current flow up or down.
