The top award was for $250,000. If you want to watch the video without knowing the winner, watch it before reading the rest of this post. Every year the accomplishments of high school students provide amazing hope for the future. I…

Uber Submits Hudi, an Open Source Big Data Library, to The Apache Software Foundation

The ability to manage and access petabytes of data quickly is crucial to the scalable growth of an entire data ecosystem. Still, this combined need for scale and speed does not always naturally fit into existing batch and streaming system architectures. Developed in 2016 under the codename “Hoodie,” Hudi was built to address inefficiencies across ingest and ETL pipelines that required upsert and incremental consumption primitives in Uber’s Big Data ecosystem. To share these benefits with the broader Big Data…

How We Build Serverless Apps with Workers

You’ve had a chance to build a Cloudflare Worker. You’ve tried KV Storage and have a great use case for your Worker. You’ve even demonstrated the usefulness to your product or organization. Now you need to go from writing a single file in the Cloudflare Dashboard UI Editor to source controlled code with multiple environments deployed using your favorite CI tool. Fortunately, we have a powerful and flexible API for managing your workers. You can customize your deployment to your…

Panoptic segmentation: Improving scene understanding

What the research is: A new approach to object recognition that uses a single neural network to simultaneously recognize distinct foreground objects, such as animals or people (a task called instance segmentation), while also labeling pixels in the image background with classes, such as road, sky, or grass (a task called semantic segmentation). While previous research has mainly explored these two segmentation tasks separately, using different types of network architectures, our work shows that both tasks can be addressed in…

Data mining digs up hidden clues to major California earthquake triggers — ScienceDaily

A powerful computational study of southern California seismic records has revealed detailed information about a plethora of previously undetected small earthquakes, giving a more precise picture about stress in the earth’s crust. A new publicly available catalog of these findings will help seismologists better understand the stresses triggering the larger earthquakes that occasionally rock the region. “It’s very difficult to unpack what triggers larger earthquakes because they are infrequent, but with this new information about a huge number of small…

Engineering duo among first graduates of Advisor Development Program

Nick Balser and Tami Beatty were among the first graduates of the UM System Advisor Development Program. Academic advisors Tami Beatty and Nick Balser recently graduated from the inaugural class of the UM System Advisor Development Program (ADP). From a congratulatory letter from Jill Wood, Director of the Office of Academic Affairs (UM System) and Kimberly Hoffman, Director of Research Operations and Planning: “(t)he goal of the UM System ADP is to recognize and further develop successful advising and academic…

Scientists improve sensitivity and stretchability of room-temperature liquid metal-based sensor

a) The relationship between GF and strain. (b) The relationship of resistance change and strain. Photographs of this sensors attached on the joint (c)/fingers (d)/wrists (e) of different motions, and corresponding resistance change. Credit: WANG Lei Scientists have developed a room-temperature, liquid metal-based, super-stretchable sensor with the advantages of easy fabrication, low cost, high repeatability and a gauge factor as great as 4.95. The new device potentially takes liquid metal-based sensors to the next stage. The findings were published in…

Introducing Base Web, Uber’s New Design System for Building Websites in React

At Uber, we have hundreds of  internal web applications used by developers, product managers, and operations teams—essentially everyone at the company. Since all web applications work differently, it puts additional overhead on our employees to learn how to interact with them most effectively. This can lead to engineers spending  a lot of time and effort reinventing the wheel instead of leveraging a universal design system across the company. To solve these issues, Uber assembled a dedicated design and engineering team…

Scientists find bounds of weather forecasting — ScienceDaily

In the future, weather forecasts that provide storm warnings and help us plan our daily lives could come up to five days sooner before reaching the limits of numerical weather prediction, scientists said. “The obvious question that has been raised from the very beginning of our whole field is, what’s the ultimate limit at which we can predict day-to-day weather in the future,” said Fuqing Zhang, distinguished professor of meteorology and atmospheric science and director of the Center for Advanced…
