CEOs Leading the World Into the Cloud: Ginni Rometty

Cloud computing has transformed the tech world in a short time, pushing businesses of all kinds to adopt software and services that can be used anywhere and on any machine. Some huge hardware and software companies have been left behind, but others have changed the way they work and what they offer to become major providers of cloud computing technology. This is the third article in a three-part series on the CEOs of some of the largest tech companies in…

Do drones deserve their dire reputation? Depends who is flying them

Credit: shutterstock Whether they are dropping drugs into prison yards, narrowly avoiding passenger aircraft or invading the privacy of unsuspecting homeowners, drones have been hitting the headlines for all the wrong reasons. There has been an explosion in the popularity of commercially available drones in recent years. Google Images and other photography sites are now flooded with high-contrast aerial shots and gleaming panoramas, all sourced from invariably high-resolution on-board cameras. But these spectacular views have come at a price.…

Researchers sharpen predictions of where lost cargo will wash up

Credit: CC0 Public Domain The UNSW team tracking cargo lost from a ship near Port Stephens are now predicting the path of the containers days in advance. More debris lost in the Port Stephens shipping container spill could be brought back to Australia’s coast in the coming days by the eddies of the East Australian Current. A team of UNSW Canberra and Jerusalem College of Technology researchers are tracking the 81 containers that were lost overboard from the YM…

Even low pollution levels can pose health risk — ScienceDaily

New research links outdoor air pollution — even at levels deemed safe — to an increased risk of diabetes globally, according to a study from Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis and the Veterans Affairs (VA) St. Louis Health Care System. The findings raise the possibility that reducing pollution may lead to a drop in diabetes cases in heavily polluted countries such as India and less polluted ones such as the United States. Diabetes is one of the…

The discrepancy between mathematical proofs, algorithms, and their implementations in control systems

Engineers work in quantifiable realism—an object exists and can be measured. Sometimes, though, the certainty of the object and how it will behave wavers. Researchers from the Automatic Control and System Dynamics Laboratory at the Technische Universität Chemnitz in Germany are starting to close the gap between reality and mathematical uncertainty. They published an analysis of the discrepancy between mathematical proofs, algorithms, and their implementations in control systems with real, measurable outcomes. Their work appears in the July issue of…

Augmented reality helps build aircraft tanks

Through ambient markers on the tank the AR glasses know where the tank is and how large it is, allowing them to project a 3-D model. Credit: Markus Breig, KIT Walking through an unfamiliar city, getting directions or simulations of buildings that no longer exist – augmented reality is where virtual content and the real world come together. Scientists at Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) are developing an assistance system based on this technology which supports engineers in building and…
