IDC predicts that over the next five years, the number of mobile workers in the U.S. will grow from 96.2 million to 105.4 million, making them nearly three-quarters of the entire U.S. workforce.The growth of the mobile workforce will only continue to accelerate with the ongoing migration to cloud-based applications and services.After all, there's no reason to tie users to their desks when they can access the tools and data they need to do their jobs from wherever they happen to be.However, as applications and users continue to move outside the physical boundaries of the enterprise, organizations face an urgent challenge: How do they take advantage of greater mobility and the agility it supports without risking the security of sensitive data and business-critical applications?Each employee with access to the corporate network must be authenticated on each device they use, limited to only the enterprise IT resources they're authorized to use, and managed to minimize their risk of exposing the network to intrusion.The swelling "gig economy" adds another layer of complexity.

DMJC writes: George Oldziey, the music composer from Wing Commander 3 and 4, is running a Kickstarter campaign to re-orchestrate the music from the venerable series.The Kickstarter is in its final week and has approximately $2000 left to go before it reaches it's goal.Oldziey shares some history on his web site: In 2014 I launched a Kickstarter campaign to document the music I created for the Wing Commander games in the way I had originally imagined it: for full orchestra and chorus.588 generous supporters helped me reach my goal!In late 2014 I traveled to Bratislava, Slovakia, where the 95-piece Slovak National Symphony Orchestra and the 40-voice Lucina Chorus recorded this music under my supervision.But last November -- and again in June -- Oldziey unsuccessfully tried raising funds on Kickstarter to record more of his Wing Commander music with a full orchestra.

The result is resilient, since loss of any one fiber will still leave the shell firmly attached.Yet each year, we spend those millions of dollars trying to clear them off of ships, pipes, piers, and other hardware.It's less complicated than it sounds.The silicone oil simply works its way into pores and gaps in the surface and stays there because of the chemical compatibility.One was a standard polymer (polydimethylsiloxane), the second a porous surface made from fused silica nanoparticles.In the case where mussels did stick, it took less force to pull them off, and none of the mussels' adhesive proteins were left behind afterwards.

NVIDIA's cranked up the virtual workstation caper by giving the world a new GPU that slots into blade servers, plus software to let it run multiple workstation-grade VMs.The new GPU is the TESLA P6 and uses NVIDIA's Pascal architecture, the company's current flagship.The P6 has 2,048 CUDA cores, 16 GB of memory and uses the MXM form factor so it can slot into blades.The GPU is offered to those who want to build very dense GPU-enhanced compute rigs for the usual suspects: very graphic applications, machine learning and so on.But NVIDIA's also decided it and the P4, P40 and P100 GPUs should also be put in harness to run virtual workstations.NVIDIA already offers its “Grid” software for everyday VDI and that code can let multiple desktops share a GPU, be it a Pascal-powered peripheral or a device using the older Maxwell architecture.Theres also Grid for workstations, but that's now been replaced by the new “Quadro Virtual Data Center Workstation Software” that is far more comfortable letting multiple workstations share one GPU.

Customer service problems are everyone's problem, by design, says CEO Bill Morrownbn , the organisation building and operating Australia's National Broadband Network (NBN), has reported annual revenues of AU$1,001m for the year ending June 30, 2017, and says it's ahead of target for construction and uptake.The company says that as of June 30th it had 5, 713,350 premises ready for service, of which 2,443,133 had activated services.When the company looks at the takeup rate over the 18 months that elapse between NBN connections becoming available and ye olde PSTN-based internet access being switched off, 75 per cent of premises make an NBN connection.But CEO Bill Morrow acknowledged that not all customers are happy, a problem he mostly laid at the door of retailers who he said have varying processes for connecting customers and are only just starting to explain to customers that peak speeds won't be available 24 hours a day.While Morrow did not name retailers he said are doing better than others, he said nbn has collected statistics that tell it which are problem children.

Telecoms.com periodically invites expert third parties to share their views on the industry’s most pressing issues.In this piece Rob McManus, Senior Product Marketing Manager, IP and Optical Networks at Nokia, explores the potential benefits of MP-TCP hybrid access.Communication service providers (CSPs) face significant new pressures on many fronts, often including ambitious broadband mandates set by governments worldwide.They will need to upgrade nearly every aspect of their operations to meet both political goals and daily user demands, which will, incidentally, not always align.An intelligent and flexible core that anchors an array of multi-access technologies will ensure the delivery of converged services, addressing everything from evolving residential multimedia services, such as wireless video sharing and Netflix-bingeing, to latency sensitive real-time gaming and mission-critical applications for governments and enterprises.In dense urban areas, a mix of licensed wireless spectrum enabled by CSPs’ macro and small cells, Wi-Fi and other unlicensed and shared spectrum will likely be key.

(Reuters) — SoundCloud, the world’s most popular streaming music app, but one that has struggled to find a profitable business model, said it received new funding on Friday, insulating it from potentially running out of cash this year.The company, which laid off 40 percent of its staff in July, said in a blog post that the financing was raised from media-focused investment bank Raine Group of New York and Singapore’s sovereign wealth fund Temasek.Raine and Temasek were not immediately available for comment.One source familiar with the investment said it amounted to around $170 million (144 million euros), as reported on Thursday by online news site Axios, which had obtained the deal’s term sheet.The company said that as part of the new investment, digital media veterans Kerry Trainor and Michael Weissman, respectively the former chief executive and chief operating officer of online video service Vimeo, would take the same roles at SoundCloud.SoundCloud founder and former CEO Alexander Ljung has agreed to step aside to become chairman of the board, it said.

An AI app that identifies the writer of a particular text based on the person's writing style could be used to fight plagiarism in schools, or help historians identify the true author of texts.A few years back, Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling penned a detective novel titled The Cuckoo’s Calling under the pen name Robert Galbraith, choosing to conceal her own identity.When people started to notice a couple of stylistic similarities between the “two” authors, experts were called in to investigate — in the form of some smart AI software.That Rowling was indeed Galbraith, and the author of the book in question.Jump forward to 2017, and a publicly available AI application called Emma Identity promises to do the same thing for whoever needs it.It’s the world’s first web application capable of determining the authorship of a particular text based on a person’s writing style.
