A total of 296 undergraduates and 85 graduate students became the next Mizzou Made engineering leaders at MU Engineering’s Fall 2018 Commencement Ceremony on Friday at the Hearnes Center. Among those 296 were the first four graduates of Mizzou Engineering’s brand new Biomedical Engineering bachelor’s degree program.…

Code Analysis – Testing & Debugging

Having a successful app development or software construction project is only possible with a well thought out plan. If you are working with a number of other developers, establishing things like what programming language to use and what style of coding you will adhere to is a must. If you are working for a larger company that utilizes the power of access rights management, making sure you have access to all of the resources you need is essential. Nearly 70…

Use Technology To Make Your Vacation a Blast!

I am pretty sure that millennials do not have a clue about what a travel agent is. It is true that it is a dying job, and fewer people use their services. However, why would you pay someone else to plan your vacation when you have so many websites and applications that can do the same job for free? From offline maps to itinerary-planning applications, you can plan a perfectly good vacation using only technology. Below, you will find a…

Managing DNS Records For The People With Cloudflare Apps

DNS records are hard.  Many people, even the technically competent, don’t understand more than the basics. I’ll speak for myself — as someone who always learned just enough about DNS to get it working, then immediately forgot everything until the next time it broke. It was a vicious cycle until I convinced myself to learn it in depth.  Meanwhile, non-technical folks wisely avoid meddling in such dangerous affairs all together. Surely, there must be a better way (this is a…

How the brain tells you to scratch that itch — ScienceDaily

It’s a maddening cycle that has affected us all: it starts with an itch that triggers scratching, but scratching only makes the itchiness worse. Now, researchers have revealed the brain mechanism driving this uncontrollable itch-scratching feedback loop. In a study publishing on December 13 in the journal Neuron, the researchers showed that the activity of a small subset of neurons, located in a deep brain region called the periaqueductal gray, tracks itch-evoked scratching behavior in mice. “Effective treatment for chronic…

Open Source at Uber: Meet Alex Sergeev, Horovod Project Lead

By Molly Vorwerck For Alex Sergeev, the decision to open source his team’s new distributed deep learning framework, Horovod, was an easy one. Tasked with training the machine learning models that power the sensing and perception systems used by our Advanced Technology Group (ATG) and Maps organizations, Alex and his team built Horovod while in the process of developing Uber’s in-house deep learning platform. As existing open source deep learning solutions were unable to meet our desired performance, usability, and…

Researchers shine new light on disease-spreading mosquitoes

In Thomas’s lab at NJIT, mosquitoes are placed in a tube enclosure where they transit through a laser beam and reflect distinct signatures of backscattered light. Credit: NJIT When the West Nile virus (WNV) was initially isolated in two patients at a Queens, N.Y., hospital in the summer of 1999, it would have been hard to anticipate how quickly one common species of house mosquito, Culex pipiens, would help begin to spread the virus throughout the western hemisphere. Bite-by-bite, coast-to-coast,…

Traffic Acceleration with Cloudflare Mobile SDK

We’re excited to announce early access for Traffic Acceleration with Cloudflare Mobile SDK. Acceleration uses novel transport algorithms built into the SDK to accelerate apps beyond the performance they would see with TCP. Enabling Acceleration through the SDK reduces latency, increases throughput, and improves app user experiences. A year ago, we launched Cloudflare Mobile SDK with a set of free features focused on measuring mobile app networking performance. Apps are dependent on network connectivity to deliver their app’s user experiences,…

Space chips etched in silicon

Credit: ESA – Agustin Fernandez-Leon Multiple integrated circuits destined to serve as the brains of Europe’s future space missions are etched together onto single pieces of silicon. These 20-cm diameter wafers each contain 35 replicas of five different space chips, each incorporating as many as 10 million transistors or basic circuit switches. Laid down within a microchip, these designs endow a space mission with the ability to perform various specialised tasks such as data handling, communications processing or attitude…
