US 4G wireless networks continued to show overall improvement even as 5G's expansion continues to loom over the industry.In new industry rankings from wireless industry trackers IHS Markit's RootMetrics and OpenSignal, Verizon continues to be praised for its robust nationwide 4G network while AT was once again found to have greatly improved its speed.The new rankings come a week after Speedtest.net owner Ookla released its first-half industry report.There were some discrepancies between the RootMetrics and Opensignal reports, which run millions of tests evaluating the carriers on national and regional levels.Whereas T-Mobile was praised for its speed and 4G availability by OpenSignal during its second-quarter tests, the nation's third-largest carrier, while fast on speeds, ranked "third or fourth in every category at the national level" that RootMetrics testedThe firm notes that some of its rankings were due to improvements by other carriers, particularly Verizon, and that the carrier continues to perform "much better in metropolitan markets than it does at state or national levels."
The amount of data we generate and accumulate is sometimes too much for our laptops or even desktops to accommodate.Networked Attached Storage or NAS provide some speed, reliability, and power but at the price of complexity.Enter Direct-Attached Storage or DAS like the new TerraMaster D2 Thunderbolt 3 that offer the reliability of NAS drives without the hassle nor the latency of networks.They say looks can be deceiving and the D2 Thunderbolt 3 definitely fits the bill.At first glance, it could easily be mistaken for any two-bay NAS.That’s not accidental, of course, as the box offers the same convenience of taking out trays as NAS devices.

In June 2017, Microsoft launched AI for Earth, a $50 million program that’s provided cloud-based tools and services to dozens of startups working to protect the planet.In the intervening years, the Seattle company expanded the scope of its “AI for good” work with AI for Accessibility (in May 2018) and AI for Humanitarian Action (in September 2018), both of which are a part of a $125 million, five-year commitment to teams tackling some of society’s biggest challenges.Building on this momentum and burgeoning partner ecosystem, Microsoft today announced a $10 million fourth program pillar aimed at preserving and celebrating people, places, and historical artifacts: AI for Cultural Heritage.“Our new … program will use artificial intelligence to work with nonprofits, universities, and governments around the world to help preserve the languages we speak, the places we live, and the artifacts we treasure,” wrote Microsoft president Brad Smith in a blog post.“As we have learned more about the dimensions that make up cultural heritage, we’ve concluded that preserving cultural heritage isn’t something that is solely nice to have or nice to do, it’s sometimes imperative to the well-being of the world’s societies.”Through AI for Cultural Heritage, Microsoft says it’ll work “deeply” with organizations including the Nobel Foundation, with which it recently partnered to build an AI-enabled site that weaves together the biographies of women pioneers in science.
Based on my work examining dark web markets and the techniques cybercriminals use to collect, resell or commit fraud with stolen data, I question the usefulness of AI to run-of-the-mill cybercrime.Most AI still falls short of “intelligent”The first problem with supposed “AI hacking” is that AI tools as a whole are limited in actual intelligence.Training machine learning models is time consuming and takes an enormous amount of data, and the results are models still limited to binary actions.To be useful to hackers, machine learning tools need to be able to take an action, create something or change themselves based on what they encounter when deployed and how they’ve been trained to react.By taking CAPTCHA codes – the oddly-shaped numbers and letters you re-type to prove you’re human – and splitting them into images, image-recognition models can learn to identify the images and enter the correct sequence of characters to pass the CAPTCHA test.

Apple has released a silent update for Mac users removing a vulnerable component in Zoom, the popular video conferencing app, which allowed websites to automatically add a user to a video call without their permission.The Cupertino, Calif.-based tech giant told TechCrunch that the update — now released — removes the hidden web server, which Zoom quietly installed on users’ Macs when they installed the app.Apple said the update does not require any user interaction and is deployed automatically.The video conferencing giant took flack from users following a public vulnerability disclosure on Monday by Jonathan Leitschuh, in which he described how “any website [could] forcibly join a user to a Zoom call, with their video camera activated, without the user’s permission.” The undocumented web server remained installed even if a user uninstalled Zoom.Leitschuh said this allowed Zoom to reinstall the app without requiring any user interaction.He also released a proof-of-concept page demonstrating the vulnerability.

Theranostics is an emerging field of medicine whose name is a combination of "therapeutics" and "diagnostics".The idea behind theranostics is to combine drugs and/or techniques to simultaneously - or sequentially - diagnose and treat medical conditions, and also monitor the response of the patient.This saves time and money, but can also bypass some of the undesirable biological effects that may arise when these strategies are employed separately.Today, theranostics applications increasingly use nanoparticles that unite diagnostic molecules and drugs into a single agent.This is the cutting-edge technology of "nanotheranostics", which has become a major focus of research - albeit with many limitations to overcome.Now, the lab of Sandrine Gerber at EPFL, working with physicists at the University of Geneva, have developed a new nanotheranostic system that overcomes several problems with previous approaches.
A study out of the University of Pennsylvania’s Perelman School of Medicine has found a link between drugs commonly used to treat prostate cancer and an increased risk of developing dementia.The study looked at more than 150,000 men who had prostate cancer, 62,330 of whom started receiving androgen deprivation therapy (ADT) within two years of being diagnosed.This large study follows multiple smaller past studies that found an association between the common prostate cancer treatment and the increased risk of developing dementia and Alzheimer’s disease.In their study, University of Pennsylvania researchers found that 22-percent of prostate cancer patients who received ADT were later diagnosed with dementia compared to 16-percent who did not receive ADT.As well, 13-percent of ADT recipients developed Alzheimer’s disease compared to 9-percent who did not receive the hormone therapy.Though this hormone-blocking therapy has been proven highly effective for slowing prostate cancer, it does come with a number of risk factors, including increased risk of depression, cardiovascular disease, and, based on a growing number of studies, possibly cognitive decline.

Welcome to TNW Basics, a collection of tips, guides, and advice on how to easily get the most out of your gadgets, apps, and other stuff.One of the biggest challenges we face when creating these works of art is removing the background from images, so we can use them as layers to construct our masterpieces.In this guide, we’re going to take a look at some methods we use for removing backgrounds from images so you too can become an image wizard.Then just click on download, to get a new background-less copy of your image.The only issue is that it will downscale your image, so the output quality won’t be as high as the input image.In my experience, the low res output is more than enough for face-swapping, Photoshop fun times, though.
