AVIF for Next-Generation Image Coding

Nevertheless, there are source images where the loss due to 420 subsampling is not obvious to human perception and in such cases it can be advantageous to use 420 subsampling. Ideally, a codec should be able to support both subsampling formats. However, there are a few codecs that only support 420 subsampling — webp, discussed below, is one such popular codec. The JPEG format was introduced in 1992 and is widely popular. It supports various color subsamplings including 420, 422…

The journey to fast production asset builds with Webpack

Etsy has switched from using a RequireJS-based JavaScript build system to using Webpack. This has been a crucial cornerstone in the process of modernizing Etsy’s JavaScript ecosystem. We’ve learned a lot from addressing our multiple use-cases during the migration, and this post is the first of two parts documenting our learnings. Here, we specifically cover the production use-case — how we set up Webpack to build production assets in a way that meets our needs. We’re proud to say that…

Stimulating Human like Actions & Thoughts using Mobile Cognitive Computing

Companies like IBM and other semi-conductor companies are working on new ways to have better interaction between human and computers. More importantly, methods are being devised so that computer can understand human behaviour and formulate ‘needs’ out of it. While other companies like Qualcomm are working towards personalizing mobile devices and expanding their horizons in areas of robotics, automobiles and wearables, and have named this space as “Zeroth Platform”. Improving computer “understanding” quotient Smart Devices generally require a camera to…

Danfoss Acquisition of Eaton Hydraulics Expands Global Footprint

Calling it a “once-in-a-lifetime opportunity”, Danfoss announced Jan. 21 it had acquired Eaton’s hydraulics business for $3.3 billion.

How we built Built with Workers… on Workers

I’m extremely stoked to announce Built with Workers today – it’s an awesome resource for exploring what you can build with Cloudflare Workers. As Adam explained in our launch post, showcasing developers building incredible projects with tools like Workers KV or our streaming HTML rewriter is a great way to celebrate users of our platform. It also helps encourage developers to try building their dream app on top of Workers. In this post, I’ll explore some of the architectural and…

Expanding The Reach of IoT In The Next Decade

In spite of recent slowdowns in the initial expansion of the Internet of Things (IoT), strong long-term growth is still projected throughout the next decade. Some are even predicting a doubling of the industrial sector IoT in the next couple of years. Most of us imagine that growth will consist largely of new IIoT-ready equipment, smart sensors and controls, and that old plants filled with legacy machinery will be ripped up and replaced to fulfill industrial Internet of Things (IIoT)…
