Carlson continues legacy of supporting underrepresented groups in engineering

Mary Carlson wasn’t sure she was in the right place. On her first day at Mizzou in 1974, the freshman Chemical Engineering major walked to her classroom and realized she was the only woman in it. Mary Carlson (BS ChE ’78) wanted to help future generations of students like her, establishing a scholarship for MU undergraduate chemical engineering students, with a focus on women and underrepresented minorities, and she contributed more to the scholarship as part of Mizzou Giving Day…

IBM Cloud, Now Powered by Cloudflare

A Tale of Two New Relationships Late last spring, we were seeking to expand our connections inside of IBM. IBM had first become a direct Cloudflare customer in 2016, when its X-force Exchange business selected Cloudflare, instead of traditional scrubbing center solutions, for DDoS protection, WAF, and Load Balancing. We had friendly relationships with several people inside of IBM’s Softlayer business. We learned that the IBM “Networking Tribe” was evaluating various solutions to fill product gaps that their cloud customers…

What do spacecraft, newborns and endangered shellfish have in common?

Researchers at University of California San Diego School of Medicine have developed a microbial detection technique so sensitive that it allows them to detect as few as 50-100 bacterial cells present on a surface. What’s more, they can test samples more efficiently — up to hundreds of samples in a single day. The technique was validated by sampling hundreds of surfaces in three different environments: the Spacecraft Assembly Facility at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory at California Institute of Technology; the…

Netflix Hack Day — Winter 2018 – Netflix TechBlog – Medium

Netflix in Space We’ve launched in over 190 countries…what’s next? As a nod to a well-known spacefaring industrialist, we thought it’d be fun to see if we could watch Netflix in space. We did this with an iPhone with downloaded Netflix content, a GoPro camera to watch the phone and the Earth, some heaters (lithium batteries don’t work well at -60°C / -76°F!), and an avionics package which measured GPS location, altitude, temperature, and pressure. All of this was hoisted to…

Everyone can now run JavaScript on Cloudflare with Workers

Exactly one year ago today, Cloudflare gave me a mission: Make it so people can run code on Cloudflare’s edge. At the time, we didn’t yet know what that would mean. Would it be container-based? A new Turing-incomplete domain-specific language? Lua? “Functions”? There were lots of ideas. Eventually, we settled on what now seems the obvious choice: JavaScript, using the standard Service Workers API, running in a new environment built on V8. Five months ago, we gave you a preview…

Unlimited capacity in wireless networks with massive MIMO

Emil Bjornson, Linkoping University Massive MIMO is an antenna technology that is considered the most promising for future superfast 5G networks, although researchers have until now believed that there is an upper limit for how much data can be transferred. Emil Björnson, associate professor at Linköping University, has together with colleagues, shown that there is no such limit. “We can show that massive MIMO has unlimited capacity, both mathematically and with the aid of simulations,” says Emil Björnson, associate professor…
