New weapon in fight against lethal fungi — ScienceDaily

Researchers at Monash University have gained insights into how nanoparticles could be used to identify the presence of invasive and sometimes deadly microbes, and deliver targeted treatments more effectively. This study was conducted as an interdisciplinary collaboration between microbiologists, immunologists and engineers led by Dr Simon Corrie from Monash University’s Department of Chemical Engineering and Professor Ana Traven from the Monash Biomedicine Discovery Institute (BDI). It was recently published in the American Chemical Society journal ACS Applied Interfaces and Material.…

Fast dimensional analysis for root cause analysis at scale

Nikolay Pavlovich Laptev  Fred Lin  Keyur Muzumdar  Mihai-Valentin Curelea A fast dimensional analysis (FDA) framework that automates root cause analysis on structured logs with improved scalability. When a failure event happens in a large-scale distributed production environment, performing root cause analysis can be challenging. Various hardware, software, and tooling logs are often maintained separately, making it difficult to detect issues across multiple logs. Additionally, at scale, there could easily be millions of entities, each with hundreds of features, making it difficult to…

5 Interesting Ways AI is Inspiring Better Business

Many of us like to be cynical about the impending development of a smarter artificial intelligence. It might even be creepy for some. But it’s always been that way with the unknown. We fear things that we lack knowledge about. So far, there hasn’t been any seriously dangerous implications of this technology. In fact, it’s actually been doing really well for most big companies like Amazon and Apple. But don’t think it’s just the big names that are benefitting from…

‘Super-grafts’ that could treat diabetes — ScienceDaily

To save patients with a severe form of type 1 diabetes (characterized by the absence of functional insulin-producing cells), pancreatic cell transplantation is sometimes the last resort. The pancreas contains cell clusters — called islets of Langerhans — where cells that produce blood glucose regulating hormones are grouped together. However, the transplant process is long and complex: a significant part of the grafted cells die quickly without being able to engraft. By adding amniotic epithelial cells to these cell clusters,…

Improving Pickups with Better Location Accuracy

Ensuring the accuracy of vehicle locations is essential for facilitating a seamless and efficient user experience on the Uber platform. Inaccurate pickup and dropoff locations can result in poor estimated times of arrival (ETAs), difficulty for riders in locating their driver, or wasted time for drivers.  To calculate vehicle location, our platform uses Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) signals coming from the receiver on the driver’s phone. Given the diversity of phones that drivers use globally, there is a wide…

What’s new with Workers KV?

The Storage team here at Cloudflare shipped Workers KV, our global, low-latency, key-value store, earlier this year. As people have started using it, we’ve gotten some feature requests, and have shipped some new features in response! In this post, we’ll talk about some of these use cases and how these new features enable them. New KV APIs We’ve shipped some new APIs, both via api.cloudflare.com, as well as inside of a Worker. The first one provides the ability to upload…

Engineering Onboarding Bootcamp@Coursera – Coursera Engineering

In the 2018 Employee Pulse Survey (EPS) at Coursera, one big area of focus that emerged was “Engineers take a long time to ramp up with the tools and technologies that they need to be able to do their job.” Over the years, the Coursera engineering team had come to use a wide range of technologies — popular open-source, some homegrown, some adopted from outside with relatively small communities — to build our services and applications. In this post, I…

Deep neural networks uncover what the brain likes to see — ScienceDaily

Opening the eyes immediately provides a visual perception of the world — and it seems so easy. But the process that starts with photons hitting the retina and ends with ‘seeing’ is far from simple. The brain’s fundamental task in ‘seeing’ is to reconstruct relevant information about the world from the light that hits the eyes. Because this process is rather complex, nerve cells in the brain — neurons — also react to images in complex ways. Experimental approaches to…
