Iris Mobile: An Open Source, Mobile Interface for Incident Management

Here, we see alert details and graph images that are specific to the use cases we have at LinkedIn. Iris relies on user-defined templates to determine this layout. Layouts can and will differ for different alerting methods. This means that each application that raises incidents through Iris can define its own detailed layout to best display what is important to the end user. Hybrid platforms When developing this app, we evaluated a number of different approaches, such as native implementation…

Using machine learning to predict what file you need next

As we laid out in our blog post introducing DBXi, Dropbox is building features to help users stay focused on what matters. Searching through your content can be tedious, so we built content suggestions to make it easier to find the files you need, when you need them. We’ve built this feature using modern machine learning (ML) techniques, but the process to get here started with a simple question: how do people find their files? What kinds of behavior patterns…

The dead may outnumber the living on Facebook within 50 years — ScienceDaily

New analysis by academics from the Oxford Internet Institute (OII), part of the University of Oxford, predicts the dead may outnumber the living on Facebook within fifty years, a trend that will have grave implications for how we treat our digital heritage in the future. The analysis predicts that, based on 2018 user levels, at least 1.4 billion members will die before 2100. In this scenario, the dead could outnumber the living by 2070. If the world’s largest social network…

NASA, FEMA, international partners plan asteroid impact exercise — ScienceDaily

While headlines routinely report on “close shaves” and “near-misses” when near-Earth objects (NEOs) such as asteroids or comets pass relatively close to Earth, the real work of preparing for the possibility of a NEO impact with Earth goes on mostly out of the public eye. For more than 20 years, NASA and its international partners have been scanning the skies for NEOs, which are asteroids and comets that orbit the Sun and come within 30 million miles (50 million kilometers)…

The FCC and 5G

When I attended Cornell University in 1976 and 1977 for my master’s degree, I took a microwave lab course.  In the lab room where we worked was a large glass desiccator jar, sort of like a clear cookie jar with blue desiccator crystals in the bottom to keep the contents dry.  Inside the main area of the jar were tiny rectangular copper pipes with little connectors on the ends. The pipes were about a quarter of an inch wide or…

New workflow for annotating genomes will help both researchers and undergraduate students — ScienceDaily

As genome sequencing becomes cheaper and faster, resulting in an exponential increase in data, the need for efficiency in predicting gene function is growing, as is the need to train the next generation of scientists in bioinformatics. Researchers in the lab of Lukas Mueller, a faculty member of the Boyce Thompson Institute (BTI), have developed a strategy to fulfill both of these needs, benefiting students and researchers in the process. The Mueller Lab created a framework using the tremendous influx…
