NASA SunRISE Mission Will Study Solar Storms

Beam steering systems have been used for many years for applications such as imaging, displays and optical trapping, but they require bulky mechanical mirrors and are overly sensitive to vibrations. Compact optical phased arrays (OPAs), which change the angle of an optical beam by changing the beam’s phase profile, are a promising alternative for many new applications. These include ultra-small solid-state LiDAR on autonomous vehicles; much smaller and lighter AR/VR displays; large-scale trapped-ion quantum computers to address ion qubits; and…

IT faculty share tips for effective remote learning

Students across the country are now learning remotely, and IT faculty say it may shine a light on the effectiveness of online education. Information Technology faculty at Mizzou Engineering spent two years designing and developing coursework in order to start offering a bachelor’s degree entirely online this past fall. The situation educators are finding themselves in today, in light of COVID-19, is not that. But IT program experts say there are some best practices instructors at all levels can use…

PMI Inches Down to 49.1%, But Storm Clouds Brewing

Perhaps the best news from the Institute for Supply Management’s March PMI report on manufacturing was that it wasn’t quite as bad as could have been expected. A global pandemic and continuing concerns about supply chain viability and productivity has roiled the manufacturing sector for the past 90 days, but the PMI fell only 1.0 percentage point to 49.1%. While that points to contraction in manufacturing, it’s still not as sharp a decline as might have been anticipated. But there…

Introducing 1.1.1.1 for Families

Two years ago today we announced 1.1.1.1, a secure, fast, privacy-first DNS resolver free for anyone to use. In those two years, 1.1.1.1 has grown beyond our wildest imagination. Today, we process more than 200 billion DNS requests per day making us the second largest public DNS resolver in the world behind only Google. Yesterday, we announced the results of the 1.1.1.1 privacy examination. Cloudflare’s business has never involved selling user data or targeted advertising, so it was easy for…

Announcing the Beta for WARP for macOS and Windows

Last April 1 we announced WARP — an option within the 1.1.1.1 iOS and Android app to secure and speed up Internet connections. Today, millions of users have secured their mobile Internet connections with WARP. While WARP started as an option within the 1.1.1.1 app, it’s really a technology that can benefit any device connected to the Internet. In fact, one of the most common requests we’ve gotten over the last year is support for WARP for macOS and Windows.…

My Beat: Stefan Ålund | Labs

Meet some of our busy engineers, product managers and technical team members – who are working from home at the moment, but still have plenty of big projects in the pipeline. Stefan works as a Senior Product Manager in our Stockholm office. But at the moment, he – like much of the world – is working from home, which means juggling his busy projects with family life and LEGO-building.   I usually get up way earlier than this, because it’s…

Cloudflare customers now have the ability to use security keys on WebAuthn-supported browsers to log into their user accounts. We strongly suggest users configure multiple security keys and 2FA methods on their account in order to access their apps from various devices and browsers. If you want to get started with security keys, visit your account’s 2FA settings. What is…

NOVIDIA Announces Artificial Stupidity Tech—CEO Claims it Will Make AI Apps Smarter

Series: April 1, 2020: What’s Trending in Technology? NOVIDIA, a leading developer of hardware and software used in the development of artificial-intelligence technology, announced that it’s introducing a new series of products and software tools, based on the emerging science of “Artificial Stupidity” (AS). “Artificial Stupidity is not intended to replace AI, but to augment it,” said Jason Wong, founder and CEO of NOVIDIA during a web-based tele-briefing held earlier today.  Wong explained that AS technology, which uses biomimicry algorithms…

This Battery Breakthrough Changes Everything

Series: April 1, 2020: What’s Trending in Technology? Battery technology has lagged all other electrical and electronic developments for decades. Some have actually said we’re not much further along from the development of the long-lived lead-acid battery that’s been around since its invention in 1859. The reason for its long life is that very few new batteries have been able to deliver that kind of power in a reasonably sized package. The biggest recent development was the lithium-ion battery with…

Aerosol Delivers 5G as Mist, Solves Countless Technical Problems

Download this article in PDF format. The use of robots in factory automation continues to expand because they clearly improve efficiency, cut costs, and improve quality. Fixed-arm robots do most of the work with machine-vision video cameras watching everything. However, the use of autonomous robots called logistical robots or automating guided vehicles (AVGs) is on the rise. Autonomous robots are mobile vehicles that navigate their space safely and perform assigned duties without human intervention. Creating such competent independent machines is…
