Fang Binxing was forced to use a VPN to circumvent the Great Firewall of China Photograph: Kevin Frayer/Getty ImagesThe Father of China s internet censorship infrastructure, known as the Great Firewall of China, has been caught having to circumvent his own creation after attempting to display a website during a talk at the Harbin Institute of Technology in the Heilongjiang province of China.According to local reports, Fang Binxing attempted to display a South Korea website, which he said showed the views of South Koreans attempting to build similar infrastructure to China s firewall, but was blocked by said censorship system.Fang then had to resort to setting up a virtual private network VPN to circumvent the censorship, in full view of the lecture attendees, to display the site.Using VPNs to effectively make a tunnel through the Great Firewall of China to the outside internet world is a common, but frowned upon, practice used by many within China wishing to access western sites such as Facebook and Twitter.The UK also operates a system of censorship through court-ordered blocks of piracy sites by internet service providers, including the notorious Pirate Bay, which requires users to employ similar techniques such as VPNs to access.
Benjamin Stahl Photographer: Fredrik Karlsson Swedish industry has a good position when it comes to robotics. But it required a serious effort to retain the position, according to a new report. In 2015 there were 1.5 million industrial roots in use worldwide compared to one million in 2009, an increase of 50 percent in five years. The rapid development of sensors have influenced and robots have become smarter, smaller, easier to use - and yet cheaper. - But the development has not been driven by the traditional robot suppliers but rather by large companies like Google, Amazon and Apple actually been more interested in artificial intelligence, says Benjamin Stahl, research director at Blue institute with the recent report robots century. But now growing faster robot use in other countries - particularly in Asia.
MoreHttps%3a%2f%2fblueprint-api-production.s3.amazonaws.com%2fuploads%2fcard%2fimage%2f90910%2fscratch3.0-prototype 50 1 MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. — Google's annual developer conference doesn't officially kick off until Wednesday but about 120 of the company's youngest developers are already getting to preview one of its newest announcements.Google is teaming up with MIT's Media Lab to create Scratch Blocks, an updated version of the kid-centric programming language.Now, the MIT team is partnering with Google on the next generation of Scratch, with the hope that Google can help scale Scratch to more platforms and devices.The update also makes it easier to bring Scratch to smaller screens like smartphones and tablets, says Mitchel Resnick, Director or MIT's Scratch Team.While more and more companies that make products for kids — whether they are toy companies or software makers — are beginning to incorporate programmable elements for their young users, there isn't one universal programming language across these products, explains Resnick.While traditional programming requires very precise strings of text and punctuation, Scratch and other visual programming languages rely on a shape-based system that Resnick characterizes as the "Lego approach," that's much more intuitive for beginners.
Photo: SCMP PicturesAustralian scientists have found evidence of a huge asteroid they say slammed into Earth some 3.46 billion years ago – making it the second oldest known to have hit the planet and larger than the one blamed for wiping out the dinosaurs.Andrew Glikson, from the Australian National University s Planetary Institute, said that while the asteroid would have been massive, the exact location of where it hit was not known.The impact would have triggered earthquakes orders of magnitude greater than terrestrial earthquakes, it would have caused huge tsunamis and would have made cliffs crumble, he said in a statement.On Wednesday, Glikson said he and Arthur Hickman from the Geological Survey of Western Australia had found tiny glass beads called spherules, which are formed by vaporised material from an asteroid s impact, in Australia s remote northwest.It dates from 3.46 billion years ago.Tests on the beads found in Western Australia found levels of elements such as platinum, nickel and chromium corresponding with those found in asteroids, according to the scientists paper in Precambrian Research.
Eight studies have received funding under Phase 2 of the NASA innovative Advanced Concepts program, including a proposal to blast tiny spacecraft to other star systems using powerful lasers.The high-risk, high-reward ideas — which received grants under Phase 2 of the NASA Innovative Advanced Concepts NIAC program — include a possible way to induce a hibernation-like state in Mars-bound astronauts and a proposal to blast tiny spacecraft between the stars using powerful lasers."The NIAC program is one of the ways NASA engages the U.S. scientific and engineering communities, including agency civil servants, by challenging them to come up with some of the most visionary aerospace concepts," Steve Jurczyk, associate administrator of NASA's Space Technology Mission Directorate in Washington, D.C, said in a statement Friday May 13 .This basic idea is at the heart of the $100 million Breakthrough Starshot project, which Stephen Hawking and other scientists announced last month.In this concept, a spacecraft would slow down upon approach to a planet by generating its own magnetic field.- See more at: http://www.space.com/32894-nasa-interstellar-flight-tech-niac-space-grants.html sthash.r4Idujwq.dpuf"Phase 2 decisions are always challenging, but we were especially challenged this year with so many successful Phase 1 studies applying to move forward with their cutting-edge technologies," Jason Derleth, the NIAC program executive at NASA Headquarters in Washington, D.C., said in the same statement.
In 1982, a tainted drug caused a handful of young Californians to become mysteriously frozen, unable to move.There was this big argument that broke out on the ward, remembers William Langston, chief scientific officer and founder of the Parkinson s Institute, a clinic and research center in Sunnyvale, California.In time, two more frozen patients, Connie and Toby, found their way into Langston s clinic.A mass spectrometer adds charges to molecules and then separates them according to their mass using a magnetic field, creating a spectrum from a complicated chemical mixture.He managed to do this successfully for a while, but he got sloppy with one batch.Connie s response to levodopa was limited, suggesting that her illness may have been too advanced to benefit from the procedure.
A computer program can scan your sketches and search for a photograph that looks just like them.Hays and his team recruited 664 workers on crowdsourcing platform Amazon Mechanical Turk to make sketches.Each snap fell into one of 125 categories of recognisable objects, such as beetle, sword, banana or rocket.Police could catch criminals by searching databases with drawings made by criminal sketch artists To match the sketches to the original photographs, two neural networks collaborated.Hospedales and his colleagues developed a program that can match sketches of shoes and chairs with similar photographs, which they will present next month at the Computer Vision Pattern Recognition conference in Las Vegas.Maybe you want to express the style with a sketch and then retrieve photos in that style from your favourite online shopping site.
Most at risk are tourist island of Madeira and Georgia and the Black Sea coast. That is, the regions where the mosquito - Aedes aegypti - which spreads the virus there. WHO is worried, however, that many more countries may suffer as a completely different myggart - Aedes albopictus - has also been identified as a potential virus carriers. In the United States as far north as New York and there is nothing to say that it would not be able to come to Sweden, says Anders Lindström, entomologist and insect expert at the Swedish Veterinary Institute SVA The risk of zikaviruset will gain a foothold in Sweden because of this mosquito, he assesses to be small. - Although Aedes albopictus come here it will be probably no large populations, since it requires fairly high temperatures for a long time to be able to multiply in large quantities, says Anders Lindström. Right now, South and Central America hard hit by zikaviruset.
Musk, co-founder of SpaceX, first published his sketches for the Hyperloop in August 2013.On 11 May, in the Nevada desert, an independent company named Hyperloop One held the first public demonstration of its technology.A metal sled shot along a 900-metre open-air track in 1.1 seconds – although without any of the complexities of low-pressure tubes that a real system would need.On Friday, a student team from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology became the first to show off their pod, at an event in Cambridge, Massachusetts.The MIT designs, which rely on magnetic levitation, won an interim prize from the competition in January.The Hyperloop is once a concept, now very much in development , says MIT team captain Philippe Kirschen.
Of approximately 40,000 smartphone health apps available, about 800 are devoted to mental health, according to Robert Kennedy, MD, Executive Director of the American Association for Technology in Psychiatry.However, few of these apps are developed by clinicians, and there is little science to the vast majority of them, said Seth Powsner, MD, President of the AATP, and Professor of Psychiatry at Yale.Apps may provide solutions, the speakers agreed.New health apps launched by Apple just last month, in April, 2016, include pregnancy tracker Glow Nurture, newborn parenting app Glow Baby, and a diabetes manager.An Apple depression tracker named Start, includes a symptom tracker, medication reminder, depression rating scale, and information about medication side effects.The Collaboratory encouraged clinicians to contact them with ideas for apps, and for help in developing the apps.

The Google Cultural Institute has been hard at work digitally preserving works of art from collections around the world in gigapixel images.The Art Camera uses laser and sonar to measure the distance of the artwork, ensuring perfect focus, then robotically steers the camera exactly where it needs to go to capture every detail in ultra close-up.Being able to zoom in to the component parts of a painting reveals some of the hidden secrets of its creation, and inspires a deeper emotional connection to the work.The Art Camera is designed to work wherever a piece of art is displayed, without changing the lighting or needing to move a piece.One of the Google Cultural Institute s goals with the Art Camera is to bring the museum experience to people everywhere, so anyone has the opportunity to view classic masterpieces with the type of detail not otherwise possible without seeing it in person.The collection includes work from Cézanne, Rembrandt, Van Gogh, Monet, and many others, captured in stunning detail.
Most 3D printers print layers over and over again until a full object takes shape.The machine uses a high-intensity laser that heats tiny silver nanoparticles to form metallic shapes.The 3D-printing technique was developed by a team of Harvard researchers at the Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering and the Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences.The key to unlocking this new approach to printing metal was balancing the intensity of the laser and its proximity to the nozzle.This kind of delicate metal printing is particularly useful because of its freeform capabilities.The filament can be shaped into virtually any type of metal structure, which researchers expect will be useful in developing wearables, sensors, and even circuitry parts.
