EU’s future cyber-farms to utilise drones, robots and sensors

Farmers could protect the environment and cut down on fertiliser use with swarms of drones. Credit: ‘Aerial View – Landschaft Markgräflerland’ by Taxiarchos228 is licenced under CC 3.0 unported Bee-based maths is helping teach swarms of drones to find weeds, while robotic mowers keep hedgerows in shape. “We observe the behaviour of bees. We gain knowledge of how the bees solve problems and with this we obtain rules of interaction that can be adapted to tell us how the robot…

Using geographic splitting & optimization techniques to measure marketing performance |

US invests $17 million in laser tech

The U.S. Defense Department is investing $17 million in high-powered laser technology that has the potential for practical uses on the battlefield, from destroying enemy drones to disrupting communication systems. U.S. Sen. Martin Heinrich announced the funding during a news conference Wednesday at a Boeing lab in Albuquerque, where many of the innovations needed to track targets and control the intensity of the high-powered lasers were developed. A member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, the New Mexico Democrat…

Researchers devise app to protect PINs and passwords — ScienceDaily

Every ATM or smartphone user can attest to the discomfort of having a stranger standing close enough to observe a financial transaction — and potentially note a PIN or account number. Now researchers at the NYU Tandon School of Engineering have announced a first-of-its-kind application to combat such “shoulder-surfing,” whether in person or via a building’s video camera. Nasir Memon, NYU Tandon professor of computer science and engineering, explained that the technology, called “IllusionPIN,” deploys a hybrid-image keyboard that appears…

💚 → 👏 👏 👏 – Medium Engineering

A product engineering tale Back in the heady days of early July 2017, I was tasked with adapting the Medium 💚 system into something that allowed variable input. With the binary 💚 button, users could tell us when they liked a story, but we wanted to know how much they liked it, in comparison with other stories. In theory, this new data would allow us to surface truly good content over shiny clickbait. It was also the first piece of…
