It’s a tale that’s been retold – through books, movies, TV, video games, and various other content formats – time and time again.Terms like “down the rabbit hole” and “through the looking glass” are now fixtures in our collective lexicon.From Alice to the Mad Hatter to the Cheshire Cat to Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum, the denizens of Wonderland are deeply memorable, and – in their own ways – relatable.These are simple realities of a crowded business environment where trust is in peril.Interviews and podcasts and eBook contributions… oh my!When the content you’re creating in partnership with influencers feels random and chaotic, it isn’t likely to achieve the results you seek.
After Apple’s iPhone 11 event, I noted that while the company was catching up on features like ultrawide and night mode, it was unclear whether it’d be able to get on the Pixel’s level in terms of basic image quality.Over the course of our review process, it became clear that Apple had indeed achieved that.“We didn’t forget about the camera,” Google’s Sabrina Ellis said near the end of the presentation.“With Pixel 4 we’re raising the bar yet again, and it all starts with this little square.” “Little” is perhaps a charitable description of the Pixel 4’s conspicuous camera bump, but that bump does of course house what should amount to the biggest change to the Pixel camera.“Wide angle can be fun, but we think telephoto is more important,” computational photography lead Marc Levoy said on stage.That’s not an unreasonable position — Apple certainly agreed during the last three years it put out dual-camera phones before switching to ultrawide with the iPhone 11.
These repetitive tasks or reports are necessary elements of what you do, but likely also sometimes feel that they take away from real work.RoboSelf, a Bucharest Founder Institute portfolio company, uses the power of chatbots’ natural language abilities to automate away the most repetitive tasks in the office, allowing professionals to focus on priority projects.Co-founded by the Ph.D. duo Razvan Dinu and Traian Rebedea, the founders bring backgrounds in AI and machine learning—it’s no surprise RoboSelf is using artificial intelligence to make all kinds of employees more efficient.We build robotic personal assistants for small and medium businesses.Launched earlier this year, the company is already making waves with its automation solutions.Robotic Process Automation changes the way professionals in every field use the computer.
Traffic injury in the U.S. is higher both because there's more risk on a per-kilometer basis, and also because there are more vehicles miles per capita.Despite a great deal of recent research on the dangers of traffic injury and death, there is a lack of clarity on the role of the built environment (roadway designs and adjoining development) and its risk effects.Although existing research can identify clusters of crashes called "hot spots," it fails to attribute these risks to specific built environment designs and modes of travel.In a study published in the journal Accident Analysis and Prevention, researchers from Florida Atlantic University and the University of Pennsylvania examined the relationship between the built environment, exposure, and crash risk.Louis A. Merlin, Ph.D., lead author and an assistant professor in FAU's School of Urban and Regional Planning within the College for Design and Social Inquiry, and collaborators, discovered that most studies of crash risk use ad-hoc and atheoretical models of the relationship between measures of the built environment, traffic collisions, and injuries -- an issue that almost certainly contributes to the wide range in reported findings.Of the papers reviewed, they found only a handful that presented clear theoretical relationships between measures of urban form and traffic collisions.
APIs are the de facto standard for building and connecting modern applicationsGoogle’s Apigee and Salesforce’s Mulesoft have pulled ahead of the pack in Gartner’s latest Magic Quadrant for full API life cycle management – one of the consultancy’s most requested reports, amid a boom in the API economy.With tens of thousands of public APIs on the web, application programming interfaces, (to give them their full name), are at the heart of modern enterprises’ infrastructure and indeed, growth strategy.The rise of the cloud (every application deployed on a cloud service uses APIs) has focussed minds even more, and the latest Magic Quadrant iteration confirms that full life cycle API management is a competitive marketplace, with 18 companies featured: from household names like IBM, to open source specialist Kong.The core Apigee API management platform, Apigee Edge, is available both on-premises and in the cloud.It also offers Apigee Sense — a cloud-only API security tool.

We recently got a chance to check out the Ather 450 and understand how it became the poster child of the Indian EV movement.A recent study by Bloomberg revealed that India has only about 8,000 electric cars on the roads, a minuscule figure considering the 1.3 billion population of the country.There are numerous reasons for this slow pace— inadequate charging infrastructure, expensive battery production charges, relatively higher upfront costs, and lesser range (mileage).However, it was only a year ago, on September 2018, that Ather 450 deliveries started.“Legacy automakers come with a very mechanical view at cars,” explains Swapnil Jain, the co-founder.“But at Ather, the team consists of engineers and designers from various disciplines such as product, mechanical, software, communications, etc.”.
South Korean edtech startup Mathpresso, the creator of AI-driven education app Qanda, has raised US$14.5 million in a series B round led by Legend Capital.New investors InterVest and NP Investments also participated in the round, alongside existing investor Mirae Asset Venture Investment.The latest round brings the company’s total capital raised to US$21.2 million, according to a statement.Mathpresso’s Qanda app, which is currently available in Korean, Japanese, English, Vietnamese, and Indonesian, helps students search for solutions to math problems by taking a photo.It also enables them to ask questions directly to school tutors.The queries are then added to the app’s database so other users with the same problem could find the right solution via the app’s search engine.
Cycle Tracker, an app that helps women keep track of their menstrual cycles, has now arrived on the Apple Watch.While limited cycle tracking has been part of Apple’s iOS Health app since 2015, with the release of iOS 13 and WatchOS 6, Cycle Tracker is now its own discrete sector within the Health app on the iPhone and a separate app on the Apple Watch.Designed to offer various health benefits that assist with family planning and reproductive health issues, irregularities, and symptoms, you can now enter and view data directly on your watch.Cycle tracking information, also visible via the redesigned Health app on iOS 13, is encrypted on-device.Cycle Tracker is great for tracking fertility, allowing you to record stats like basal body temperature or the results of an ovulation test.The app uses that information to create a fertility window — the few days each month when you’re most likely to get pregnant.

Apple on Wednesday has removed from its App Store an app that helps protesters in Hong Kong track police activities, two days after Chinese state-run newspaper the People’s Daily blasted the tech giant for helping pro-democracy protesters.Why it matters: Apple is the latest foreign company to be caught in the rising tide of Chinese nationalism amid the months-long anti-government protests in Hong Kong after allowing the HKmap.live app on its App Store last week.Some Chinese tech companies, including Tencent and Alibaba, have suspended ties with the National Basketball Association this week following a tweet from a Houston Rockets executive in support of the Hong Kong protests.On Tuesday, the People’s Daily said in a commentary (in Chinese) that by allowing the app, Apple was “assisting rioters in Hong Kong” and sought to be an “accessory” of protesters.Details: The real-time map, which was officially launched in early August, shows a map of Hong Kong with crowd-sourced updates on the location of police, as well as water cannons and tear gas deployment.In a statement on Thursday, Apple said the app had been used “in ways that endanger law enforcement and residents in Hong Kong.”

YouTube has been dogged by scandals over the content on its platform, including videos related to extremism and child exploitation.Neal Mohan, the Google-owned video site's product chief, on Wednesday said the company is testing a program to deal with those two problems.Mohan said YouTube is experimenting with a "self-certification" program that lets video creators self-report to the site about what's in their videos, and if they contain swearing or controversial content.Still, YouTube has had trouble in the past preventing people from gaming its systems and abusing its services.The platform has in the past unwittingly helped distribute misinformation and helped pedophiles find child-related content.While the program is only in testing right now, Mohan said YouTube eventually wants to move more toward that kind of model.

It’s my favorite software thing Apple has introduced in years.I’m using it right now, as I type this, in fact.For many app developers, however, the feature’s arrival with macOS Catalina was an expected, but still potentially, devastating piece of news.We spoke to Duet Display and Astropad about how the phenomenon of “Sherlock” could profoundly impact their respective models.“We actually have a couple of other big product launches that are not connected to the space this summer,” Duet founder and CEO Rahul Dewan said at the time.“We should be fairly diverse.” It seems Android tablet compatibility was pretty high on that list.
Pictures of child sexual abuse have long been produced and shared to satisfy twisted adult obsessions.More than a decade ago, when the reported number was less than a million, the proliferation of the explicit imagery had already reached a crisis point.The effect of the move on law enforcement’s ability to fight crime is unknown, but certain to be controversial.In thousands of cases a year, according to an event I recently attended at Stanford about encryption, this leads to arrests of the perpetrators.But, if Zuckerberg follows through with his “Privacy-Focused Vision for Social Networking”, the opposite will occur.And we lack easy methods for balancing the risks versus the benefits.
