Digital App Marketplace can help Governments improve Public Sector Operations.

This gives emerging civic technologists and startups a single platform to launch their innovations for a greater good of the society. The apps could provide novel implementations of the engaging public, having transparent systems, providing alerts and updates about new policies, declaring emergency conditions, providing identify verification, etc. All such applications would be part of one government…

Integrating imperative APIs into a React application

by Sriram Rao The Netflix TV app plays videos not only when users choose to watch a title, but also while browsing to find something great to enjoy. When we rewrote our TV user interface in React, we set out to improve the developer experience of integrating video playback into the UI so we could more rapidly experiment with various video-centric user experiences. A key piece was to expose a declarative interface to the underlying imperative video playback API that…

Birds learn from each other’s ‘disgust,’ enabling insects to evolve bright colors — ScienceDaily

Many animals have evolved to stand out. Bright colours are easy to spot, but they warn predators off by signalling toxicity or foul taste. Yet if every individual predator has to eat colourful prey to learn this unappetising lesson, it’s a puzzle how conspicuous colours had the chance to evolve as a defensive strategy. Now, a new study using the great tit species as a “model predator” has shown that if one bird observes another being repulsed by a new…

Hyperspectral camera detects counterfeit medicine and traces of blood

Specim Oy, a VTT spin-off, has developed the world’s first mobile hyperspectral camera for the fast, high-level analysis of a range of samples. VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland contributed its own expertise to the development project, in the form of fast measurement data processing algorithms and methods. The extremely high-precision hyperspectral camera, which resembles a normal digicamera, recognises materials and their differences from an image and provides results immediately on-site.

Will We Miss Net Neutrality?

On Thursday, Dec. 14, the U. S. Federal Communications Commission voted 3-2 in favor of repealing the Obama-era “net neutrality” rules that have been in effect since 2015.  Like so many things lately, net neutrality has become a partisan issue, and the vote went along party lines, the three Republican appointees on the Commission voting in favor of repeal and the two Democrats opposing it.  Polls show that the idea of net neutrality is popular, with as many as 80%…
