Ten years ago, I was in the early stages of the PhD programme in robotics at Carnegie Mellon University.The potential of these technologies was incredible, but up to that point, the focus had been overwhelmingly on applications in areas such as defence, space, manufacturing or pure research.Then, top autonomous driving research was funded almost exclusively by Darpa and other government agencies, and although large-scale autonomous cars have always been one of the dreams of robotics researchers, we would have all been shocked to see what is happening today: dozens of the biggest companies in the world led by a search-engine company , as well as highly funded startups, are collectively investing billions of dollars at the pursuit of the commercial autonomous car.Now there is a sense of inevitability to autonomous cars being a staple of our daily lives within a decade or sooner , with the only questions being the pace at which they will take over, and which of the companies chasing this prize will pull away from the pack.These developments in transportation are a great template for how robotics can disrupt even the most entrenched industries, and highlights a few themes that we will begin to see more frequently:• Incumbents will rarely be the ones that disrupt their own spaces.

A year ago, privately held online lenders like Prosper, SoFi, and Avant looked all but certain to go public at the same, if not higher, than the unicorn valuations than their venture investors have assigned them.In an SEC filing yesterday, Lending Club, which announced the surprise departure of its founder and CEO last Monday, revealed that investors who contributed a significant amount of funding for loans are now examining that performance or are otherwise reluctant to invest.But what started out as a disruptive movement known as peer-to-peer was far more novel than what it became, which, in many cases, is a front for whoever is providing some of these startups with capital to lend.While companies operating in this space come with inherent advantages — they use automated loan applications; they have no retail branches; they use electronic data sources and tech-enabled underwriting models that help them to quickly identify a borrower s credit risk –having deep-pocketed friends has made other things easier, like provide funding decisions within 48 to 72 hours.Smartly, some players are already looking to reimagine themselves as broader financial outfits.It also said last month that it s hoping to drum up more investor demand for the debt it originates by starting a hedge fund that will buy its own loans.

A new feature called Instant Android Apps will let users run applications immediately, without the need to first be installed locally. The idea is that developers will be able to reach out easier and quicker and get a bigger audience. Developers do not have to rewrite their applications, but they need to be updated to take advantage of Android Instant Apps, which can take less than a day according to Google. IO16 pic.twitter.com/QQbJ6xlJCc - Google @google May 18, 2016 In the beginning, only a few developers have access to the feature, but it will get a broader rollout later this year. We suppose that the function will go off and how systemtillåtelser will be handled for Instant Apps is not clear. We call it Instant Android Apps, and it evolves Android apps to be able to run instantly, without requiring the installation.
Meanwhile, Microsoft is also licensing the Nokia name for handsets back to Nokia, which has set up a new company that will make feature phones, Android-based smartphones, and tablets.Now, Microsoft claims it is not giving up the ghost entirely, even though it is  enabling yet another competitor in the smartphone business.There was no bold vision or explanation of where Microsoft plans to go next in terms of mobile platforms and devices.Plus, Alcatel has actually been acquired by Nokia .What s more, the deal is not likely to reassure app developers, handset manufacturers, or consumers that Microsoft is in the smartphone game for the long haul.At this point, walking away is probably the best thing Microsoft can do.During its second quarter earnings report in January, Microsoft reported that it had sold 4.5 million Lumia devices, down from 10.5 million for the same period a year earlier.In the five years since Microsoft first gave us the Windows phone, the news has been bleak:And in the Kantar market share report for the three months ending in February, Windows Mobile was bleeding market share just about everywhere: down from 4.8 percent in 2015 to 2.6 percent in 2016 in the U.S; down from 9.1 percent in 2015 to 5.8 percent in 2016 in Australia; and down 10.1 percent to 5.9 percent in Europe s five biggest countries.Meanwhile, Windows Mobile was stuck at .9 percent in China, practically irrelevant.Microsoft has been focusing on services and applications that run across mobile platforms lately.This is probably its best hope for maintaining a foothold in the mobile platform game going forward.No doubt, it s a bitter moment for a company that once had such a lock on personal computing — thanks to its Windows desktop monopoly.But the mobile wars have long since become Apple s iOS versus Google s Android.Microsoft can only really move on by admitting that hard truth to itself.
A file picture of a prototype Chinese maglev train operating in a vacuum tube.Photo: SCMP PicturesChina and the United States are neck and neck in the race to develop military applications for an ultra high-speed Hyperloop transport system, according to a Chinese researcher involved in one of the projects.It will use magnetic levitation, or maglev technology, to raise the vehicle above a track and reduce friction.A major drive for the research comes from military demand, Zhao said.Most Chinese researchers used maglev systems to lift the vehicle into the air to avoid physical contact with the rail, which would generate enormous friction and heat at high speed.The maglev approach is less popular in the US, according to Zhao.
Google Classroom is being joined by a new Coursework API that will allow developers to have their applications further integrate with the aforementioned Classroom service.Classroom is Google s educational management system for teachers and schools, and it uses the company s own Drive platform.Today, Google has announced updates to its Classroom offering, saying that, among other things, reporting systems and gradebooks can now be setup to sync students grades with Google Classroom, removing the time sink of manually transferring grades.Developers also have the newly gained ability to store files in the same Drive folder as the rest of the resources in a class, or use course groups to manage file sharing permissions, says Google.The company already has some partners in testing with the new features, including GeoGebra, OpenEd, and Tynker, all of them being educational platforms.Until then, check out our Google I/O portal for all the news fresh off the ground floor.

Now you want STING find and help tomorrow's game stars to grow. The initiative is called Sting Test Drive Game and is described as a national entrepreneur program with the goal of bringing more game-related companies. So this says Pär Hedberg, founder and CEO of Sting, on the initiative: Test Drive Game is our first step in an effort to develop a really sharp game incubator in Stockholm. In total there are seven workshops with 10-12 participating teams. The workshops will be held by our partners and will be attended by the biggest profiles in the Swedish and even the British games industry, says Jana Karlikova, project manager for the Sting Test Drive Game and active in the gaming incubator cottage. Applications to the program are made through Sting's website.
The starting salaries also reflect the sums that student developers can earn as summer interns at leading tech companies.According to a crowd-sourced report by Rodney Folz, interns can earn up to $10,400 a month, with an extra $10,000 for relocation and housing costs.Many top companies are reportedly paying between $6,000 a month Amazon and $8,000 a month Facebook , with Google $6.6k/m , Apple $6.7k/m and Microsoft $7.2k/m in-between.To be fair, a significant proportion of student developers - more than 25 percent - only expect to start on $50,000 to $70,000, and almost 20 percent expect less than $50,000 a year.According to Devpost's survey, students identified three key problems with recruiting: lack of information about desirable job opportunities; job applications that don't represent them effectively; and interviews that are stressful and unproductive.Kessler says: "There are plenty of companies who focus on the top schools, in terms of ranking and so on, but I think you're seeing a general opinion among software developers that it's not where you went to school - or, frankly, whether you went to school - but about what you've built, the experience you have, and your passions and personality."
Our primary family digital photo library now at 50,000 photos , for example, still lives on our desktop as well as in the cloud , as do our Quicken finances, TurboTax taxes, and other critical files.Throw in innovative new small form factor desktops like Intel s Skull Canyon NUC and you have people who may not have considered desktops giving them a serious second look.That number is expected to eventually fall below half, but in many business environments, a fixed, large computing device is still very much an asset.The most compelling and newest demand for desktop PCs, however, is being driven by virtual reality.They still provide the best experience for a wide variety of consumer and business computing applications, and for that reason, will continue to hold an important place among technology solutions for some time to come.Bob O Donnell is the founder and chief analyst of TECHnalysis Research, LLC a technology consulting and market research firm.
Ten years ago, he said, most researchers worked with a high-end PC and hoped there was enough disk space to run their applications.Now, Howard says, you run your compute and have your data stored in a national facility, you get more compute than you have in the local environment, and then you pull your results back across the network.As someone whose history stretches back to Australia's early Internet, with involvement in early OpenFlow developments, and three-and-a-half years after the NCI first investigated OpenStack, Howard has an insider's view of OpenStack's effectiveness today.That's a big thing for the NCI, because its scientific HPC is characterised by very big but relatively short-lived data flows, a large number of users, and facilities all over the country.The drive to commodity into networking equipment, vendors offering low-cost switches, all combined with an SDN control plane, offer significant savings, he said, but it's the sophistication that's demonstrated the importance of SDN to the NCI.Rather than being a painfully difficult environment to use, Howard said, the NCI's attention with OpenStack has been trying to balance which features we make available at what time, how we take advantage of those features, and how to train the researchers to take the best advantage of that environment.

The breakthrough involves phase-change memory PCM which IBM has successfully achieved storing three bits of data per cell for the first time, compared to previous demonstrations of storing one bit per cell.PCM is much more durable than flash – it can last something like 10 million write cycles compared to the average flash USB stick which endures around 3,000 write cycles – and it's way faster, coming closer to DRAM performance, but with one big difference: it doesn't lose data when switched off like DRAM.Significant cost reductionDr Haris Pozidis, manager of non-volatile memory research at IBM Research, commented: "Phase change memory is the first instantiation of a universal memory with properties of both DRAM and flash, thus answering one of the grand challenges of our industry.The new memory tech could have implications across a range of uses, including providing blazingly quick storage for cloud and IoT applications, and boosting performance of the likes of machine learning.Businesses could see entire databases stored in PCM enabling ultra-fast querying, and of course this will also make a major difference to smartphones.IBM envisions hybrid applications with PCM running alongside traditional flash storage in a phone, but with the OS stored in the PCM so when you switch your phone on, it loads almost immediately and you're staring at your home screen before you've had time to bat an eyelid.
