The First 3D Modeling Software in the History – 3D SketchPad

The third dimension was popularized by Ivan Sutherland and David Evans, who are in the 1960s opened the department of vector and raster graphics and created software where it was possible to study space in all its directions. Under the aegis of these scientists, the student Ed Kathmullah created the first 3D mock-up, it was the image of his own hand. Developing further, the system administrators, created their own company, where they actively used their product – the SketchPad software…

Engineers Making Movies (AKA Open Source Test Content)

by Andy Schuler and Matthew Donato If you’re a die-hard Netflix fan, you may have already stumbled onto the dark and brooding story of a timeless struggle between man and nature, water and fountain, ball and tether known much more plainly as Example Short. In the good old days of 2010, Example Short served us well to evaluate our streaming profiles with maximum resolutions of 1920×1080, frame rates of 30 frames per second (fps) and colorimetry within the BT. 709…

Speeding up micro-CT scanning

Micro-computed tomography or “micro-CT” is X-ray imaging in 3-D, by the same method used in hospital CT (or “CAT”) scans, but on a small scale with massively increased resolution. It enables scientists and engineers to see inside structures and reveal hidden secrets. Micro-CT imaging is opening up a world of opportunities across industries. Now the EUREKA funded project Xamflow has developed an innovative software application that makes micro-CT examinations more efficient and less labour intensive than before. “Micro-CT scanning…

React 360 replaces React VR for streamlined development focus | Engineering Blog | Facebook Code

This post originally appeared on the Oculus Developers Blog. When we released React VR in April of 2017, our goal was to create a web-based framework that would enable developers to easily add interactivity to immersive content in order to create engaging experiences. Because the content can be viewed in any WebVR-enabled browser, developers can potentially reach billions of mobile and PC users, in addition to early adopters of VR headsets. Over the past year, developers have used React VR…

Evolution of Couchbase at LinkedIn

Transition to a dedicated team model In 2017, a dedicated team was finally funded, and I quickly moved on the chance to work on Couchbase full-time. We were officially called the Caching as a Service team, or the CaaS team, but most people just referred to us as the Couchbase SRE team. We had three main charters: Centralize management. We would own and operate centralized Couchbase clusters and offer Couchbase as a service for any team to use. We also…

Measuring the Intrinsic Dimension of Objective Landscapes

Neural networks have revolutionized machine learning over the last decade, rising from a relatively obscure academic research area to a mainstay of industry powering a myriad of applications wherever large volumes of data are available. Uber uses neural networks for a diverse set of applications, from building maps of the world based on computer vision models, to enabling faster customer response using natural language understanding, to minimizing wait times by modeling spatiotemporal rider demand patterns across cities. In many cases,…

Re-engineering the past for the future – Coursera Engineering – Medium

By Alex Wang When someone asks what I do, I tell them I develop for mobile. Generally, this is met with interest and curiosity — after all, we are tasked with the interesting challenge of resizing and rearranging content built for the web on a small screen while trying to make education as engaging as possible. With billions of phones all over the world, developing for mobile is key to achieving Coursera’s mission of providing universal access to the best education from…
