Garmin och Amazon tyckte uppenbarligen att något saknades på marknaden för smarta bilprodukter, och lanserar därför Speak – en liten rund, enhet som fästs i bilens framruta.Genom den runda 1,5 tum stora (eller snarare lilla) skärmen får vi en rätt simpel navigering som med pilar visar var vi ska.Amazon står i sin tur för Alexa-delen.Amazons smarta assistent kan ge oss information om nyheter, väder och sport, och samtidigt styra det smarta hemmet.Om vi från bilen vill dubbelkolla att vi släckte lamporna eller verkligen stängde garageporten kan Speak kolla upp det (förutsatt att lamporna och garageporten också är uppkopplade).Smarta hemmet-guide: Så enkelt kopplar du upp (och ihop) ditt hem

– Den definition vi använder är att jobtech utmärks av samarbete mellan flera aktörer för att erbjuda bättre tjänster till de som söker jobb och de som vill anställa, säger Erik Sandström.Från Arbetsförmedlingens sida låter man aktörerna använda sig av datamängderna i Platsbanken och nu arbetar man på att få en plattform på plats där det också ingår några fler kärnkomponenter.Genom att söka i jobbannonser sållar man fram kompetenser som efterfrågas och hur de hänger ihop på olika sätt – i dag ligger 40 000 kompetenser i den beta som utvecklats.På en träff med andra aktörer, Jobtech Forum, i dagarna visades den upp för första gången.– Yrken blir allt mindre relevanta – de är statiska.Läs också: Arbetsförmedlingen öppnar sin jobbplattform för externa aktörer – så ska fler få jobb

In what is probably good news for swimmers, new research shows great white sharks in the Atlantic Ocean swim deeper and farther out to sea than previously thought.Researchers on Cape Cod in Massachusetts, setting of the movie Jaws, say Atlantic great whites were previously thought to be coastal huggers who migrated from Maine to Mexico, lead author Gregory Skomal tells the AP.But a study that tracked 32 sharks by satellite tag for five years found the creatures swam as far as the Azores, some 2,300 miles away.Thought to be surface dwellers, the sharks in fact dive to depths of 3,700 feet, though why they do that is a mystery."When they’re out there, they’re kind of wandering, almost nomadic in behavior,” Skomal tells the Boston Globe.Writing in the journal Marine Ecology Progress Series, Skomal's team say the results dash assumptions the sharks follow a set migration pattern.

Xiaomi is allegedly planning to release a downgraded version of its flagship Mi6 called the Mi6C.This isn’t the first time this has taken place, as Xiaomi’s previous flagship the Mi5 also saw this treatment with the Mi5C and its Surge S1 processor.Now, leaks for the supposed Mi6C have appeared online.Before we begin analyzing these leaks, we want to advise everyone to take these with a pinch of salt.The Mi6C here seems more like a bad dream device than actual renders.With that out of the way, we’ve got a device that looks like an improved Mi5C.

Forget counting parks – a database of urban greenery ranks cities based on how leafy they look to residents.Researchers are already using satellite imagery to estimate the number of trees in cities, but Newsha Ghaeli, a research associate at MIT's Senseable City Lab, wanted to analyse residents' perspectives.She called her analysis Treepedia."It's important to understand the amount of trees and canopy cover from the street, as that's what we perceive to be in cities," Ghaeli says.To create the greenery maps, Ghaeli's team feed images from Google Street View into an algorithm that estimates what percentage of each image consists of trees.Plotting these scores on a map determines the leafiness of street.

Project Gluon is an open-source, deep learning project for building, deploying and managing machine learning models.It’s worth noting that AWS and Microsoft compete fiercely in the cloud market.In fact, they each have artificial intelligence toolkits they are trying to sell customers, yet, in this instance, they saw it in their mutual best interest to work together instead of competing.It forces companies that once barricaded themselves behind proprietary stacks to work together in spite of themselves.Surely, they would rather not sleep with the enemy, but when being frenemies is in the best interest of both parties, apparently they are willing to do it.Remember when Microsoft and Salesforce joined forces just a couple of years after suing each other?

Middle-earth: Shadow of War is one of a handful of games that is attracting negative attention right now for offering players loot boxes they can purchase to gain a slight advantage.But PC players may not have to spend a dime to unlock these crates thanks to the PC’s many cheat apps.Cheat Engine, a popular tool that enables people to modify their games to unlock unlimited health, ammo, and more, works the new Middle-earth game.And some players of the new The Lord of the Rings spinoff have found that you can use Cheat Engine to access an unlimited amount of the silver Mirian currency, which they are then exchanging for loot boxes.Warner Bros. is selling a premium gold currency that players can exchange for loot boxes, but Cheat Engine makes it unnecessary to spend any money at all.I’ve reached out to Warner Bros. for a statement about this, and I’ll update with any new information from the publisher.

Last fall Procter & Gamble officially spun off several beauty brands, including CoverGirl, to Coty, and that ownership shift elevated CoverGirl’s brand status.Instead of being one of the lowest priority brands at P, it’s now one of the highest priority brands at an organization that’s purely focused on beauty, explained CoverGirl svp of Ukonwa Ojo.As a result of that focus, CoverGirl got a complete revamp, with a new tagline and brand positioning from creative shop Droga5.“The more that we talked to the women and realized the role that makeup plays in their lives, it just dawned on us that makeup was so much more than the cosmetic,” said Ojo.“When women got it right they really did feel that they could conquer the world.”With the revamp, CoverGirl and Droga5 wanted to showcase the myriad reasons and feelings women have when they put on makeup—how it can be interesting, fun, joyous—while also rejecting the belief that the sole reason women put on makeup is for men.

Jag har några audio-chromecastar och bluetoothögtalare som funkar fint eftersom de står still.Det är väl mer av en principsak för mig.Jag tycker inte man ska behöva köpa grejer med gamla standarder.USB-C-revolutionen går alldeles för långsamt.Jag var på konferens i Göteborg förra veckan och det gick inte att få tag på en enda powerbank med USB-C att köpa i teknikbutikerna i centrum.De flesta icke-teknikintresserade har inte ens hört talas om USB-C, trots att det var två år sen det slutade släppas nya mobiltelefoner som inte hade hade USB-C (Nåja, nån enstaka tillverkare envisas med att köra vidare med en egen standard).

It was certainly prolonged, sometimes awkward and completely foreseeable, but Microsoft has finally accepted it isn’t up to making its mobile operating system work.With a series of tweets over the weekend, Microsoft’s Corporate Vice President for Windows, Joe Belfiore has seemingly put the final full stop on the obituary for the Windows mobile OS.Windows has not been able to cultivate the same cult-like dedication of Apple, but there might be a few disappointed fans out there.As you can see from the tweets below, Microsoft was always onto a bit of a loser.Its failed attempt into mobile couldn’t attract the numbers, and its attempt to create an alternative to iOS and Android couldn’t either.Simply put, without the audience there wasn’t really a compelling business case to tempt developers to create apps for the OS.

It started with the gorgeous HYM Seed record player, and climaxed in August, when I ended up reviewing four Bluetooth speakers over the space of one article.This Bluetooth speaker system comes in two configurations, either as a single unit, or in a pair, and offers drop-dead gorgeous looks and an exquisitely rich sound experience at a respectable price.(And no, I have no idea how they haven’t been sued by Renault yet.)There are exceptions, of course, like Lofree’s Poison, but by and large, most are meant to be heard and not seen.Connectivity – which consists of a power port, a USB-A port for charging your devices, and a 3.5mm jack – is stashed behind the device, making it trivial to conceal unsightly cables.The 3.5mm jack is especially handy, because it means you can connect the speakers to pretty much any device – not just those packing a Bluetooth Radio.

George Biros, professor of mechanical engineering and leader of the ICES Parallel Algorithms for Data Analysis and Simulation Group at The University of Texas at Austin, has worked for nearly a decade to create accurate and efficient computing algorithms that can characterize gliomas, the most common and aggressive type of primary brain tumor.At the 20th International Conference on Medical Image Computing and Computer Assisted Intervention (MICCAI 2017), Biros and collaborators from the University of Pennsylvania (led by Professor Christos Davatzikos), University of Houston (led by Professor Andreas Mang) and University of Stuttgart (led by Professor Miriam Mehl), presented results of a new, fully automatic method that combines biophysical models of tumor growth with machine learning algorithms for the analysis of Magnetic Resonance (MR) imaging data of glioma patients.All the components of the new method were enabled by supercomputers at the Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC).Biros' team tested their new method in the Multimodal Brain Tumor Segmentation Challenge 2017 (BRaTS'17), an annual competition where research groups from around the world present methods and results for computer-aided identification and classification of brain tumors, as well as different types of cancerous regions, using pre-operative MR scans.TRAINING AND TESTING THE PREDICTION PIPELINEFor the challenge, Biros and his team of more than a dozen students and researchers, were provided in advance with 300 sets of brain images on which all teams calibrated their methods (what is called "training" in machine learning parlance).
