Global analysis of billions of Wikipedia searches reveals biodiversity secrets — ScienceDaily

An international team of researchers from the University of Oxford, the University of Birmingham and Ben-Gurion University of the Negev have found that the way in which people use the internet is closely tied to patterns and rhythms in the natural world. This finding, publishing March 5 in the open-access journal PLOS Biology suggests new ways to monitor changes in the world’s biodiversity. It also reveals new ways to see how much people care about nature, and which species and…

When I started, I spoke about growing our brand recognition in Asia and optimizing our reach to clients by building up teams and channel partners. I also mentioned a key reason behind my joining was Cloudflare’s mission to help build a better Internet and focus on democratizing Internet tools that were once only…

Team develops thermoelectric device that generates electricity using human body heat

Wearing thermal electric devices that supply power based on body temperature are attached to the skin to illuminate the LED display. Credit: The Electronics and Telecommunications Research Institute (ETRI) The Electronics and Telecommunications Research Institute (ETRI) in South Korea developed a thermoelectric module that generates electricity using human body heat. The module, which is 5 cm in width and 11 cm in length, can convert body heat energy into electricity and amplify it to power wearable devices. When a patch-like…

A nonvolatile spintronics-based 50uW microcontroller unit operating at 200MHz

Photo of the fabricated microcontroller unit chip. Credit: IEEE Researchers at Tohoku University have announced the development of a nonvolatile microcontroller unit (MCU) which achieves both high performance and ultra-low power by utilizing spintronics-based VLSI design technology. The demand for low-power, high-performance microcontroller units (MCUs) has been increasing for power-supply-critical Internet-of-Things (IoT) sensor node applications. In sensor node applications, a distributed network of sensors extracts and gathers information, which is processed by MCUs and transmitted to a cloud-based data center.…

Don’t lead by example | Dropbox Tech Blog

This is the first in a series of posts that Dropbox Principal Engineer James Cowling has published on his personal Medium blog about technical leadership. Being a strong tech lead is very different from being a strong engineer and we thought the readers of our tech blog would find his experiences relevant and interesting. Back when I was a first-time tech lead at Dropbox I had the misfortune of juggling two intimidating responsibilities at the same time: Build a multi-exabyte…
