VRE4EIC releases video tutorials on how to build virtual research environments

Credit: ERCIM EEIG VRE4EIC, an H2020 European research project, has released a series of video tutorials. Short online videos explain how to build a virtual research environment (VRE) or to enhance an existing VRE. Researchers can access and use more and more research data in the digital age. They can use this data to obtain new insights, especially by combining data sets with other data. Various projects are already building e-Research Infrastructures (e-RIs) to give researchers access to publicly funded…

The next chapter – Facebook Code

Today nearly 4 billion people globally do not have access to the Internet. It’s why Facebook, along with many other companies and governments, is investing heavily to address the three key barriers to getting everyone, everywhere online: availability, affordability, and awareness. Part of that investment has been in developing next-generation connectivity technologies like Aquila, a high altitude platform station (HAPS) system. This has involved a lot of trial and error. When we started the Aquila program back in 2014, very few companies…

The College of Engineering’s most recent Study Abroad trip saw 19 students travel to Italy to take in the sights, culture and the ENGR 3000: Global Leadership for…

Introducing a New Hybrid ES-RNN Model

Uber’s business depends on accurate forecasting. For instance, we use forecasting to predict the expected supply of drivers and demands of riders in the 600+ cities we operate in, to identify when our systems are having outages, to ensure we always have enough customer obsession agents managing our support systems, and of course, to plan our business expenditures. Because of that, Uber has invested heavily in building deep expertise in the forecasting realm. Our teams are at the forefront of…

Simplifying Media Innovation at Netflix with Archer

By Naveen Mareddy, Frank San Miguel, Mangala Prabhu and Olof Johansson Imagine you are developing a quick prototype to sift through all the frames of the movie Bright to find the best shots of Will Smith with an action-packed background. Your goal is to get the computer vision algorithm right with high confidence without worrying about: Parallel processing Cloud infrastructures like EC2 instances or Docker Container Systems The location of ultra high definition (UHD) video sources Cloud storage APIs for…

Building data services to bring education to millions, Part II

An embedded approach to in-platform analytics This post was co-authored with Juhi Singh and is Part II of the series (Part I here). In this installment, we cover Coursera’s In-Platform Dashboards, which serve descriptive and advanced analytics in easy-to-read visualizations directly on the site. At our partner institutions, these are consumed by instructors all the way up to program leaders; and among enterprise customers, from individual managers to heads of Learning and Development. The common thread? The need for aggregated…

A new, digitised era for European manufacturing

Credit: Suwin, Shutterstock Manufacturing in the EU is heading to another level that will make it more competitive than ever, thanks to better service models and to innovations such as digitisation, Big Data and the Internet of Things. In the face of Asian competition and cheaper labour abroad, Europe’s manufacturing industry must stay ahead of the game and remain competitive by offering superior value and services. The EU-funded PSYMBIOSYS project worked on revolutionising the product-service engineering environment through better intelligence…

Making Big Data Discoverable and Meaningful at Netflix

by Ajoy Majumdar, Zhen Li Most large companies have numerous data sources with different data formats and large data volumes. These data stores are accessed and analyzed by many people throughout the enterprise. At Netflix, our data warehouse consists of a large number of data sets stored in Amazon S3 (via Hive), Druid, Elasticsearch, Redshift, Snowflake and MySql. Our platform supports Spark, Presto, Pig, and Hive for consuming, processing and producing data sets. Given the diverse set of data sources,…

Robots learn by checking in on team members

Mohamed Abdelkader is one of the researchers that developed an algorithm that enables a team of unmanned aerial vehicles to work together in real time under a capture the flag scenario to intercept an attacker drone. Credit: © 2018 Kuat Telegenov The software and hardware needed to coordinate a team of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) that can communicate and work toward a common goal have recently been developed by KAUST researchers. “Giving UAVs more autonomy makes them an even more…
