Impact of Social Media in Our Daily Lives

If you were to assess the past decade or so and try to identify some technological element that had changed society as a whole, there would be a few contenders. That smartphones have advanced so much in a short amount of time is no doubt impressive, for example. However, the impact that social media has had on our lives is certainly much more impressive. Consider how easily you can see what is happening in an entirely different country on the…

Three Types Of Content For Medical Practice

Establishing a successful medical practice requires you to hire the right people, create a comfortable treatment environment, choose the perfect location, and consistently offer superior services. None of your efforts in these areas will matter, however, if local consumers don’t know your business exists. This is where search marketing comes in. At its most basic, search marketing is a multi-pronged effort to gain the attention of web users. It can include link-building, social media marketing, content curation, quality web design,…

The information retrieval tools we develop and machine learning techniques we employ as a team are essential components…

CEOs Leading the World Into the Cloud: Satya Nadella

When Satya Nadella joined Microsoft in 1992, “the cloud” didn’t exist. Neither did the Internet, at least not in the way we know it today. The first mass-market web browser launched in 1993, and it wasn’t until 1994 that Microsoft’s ‘90s nemesis, Netscape Navigator, would become a techie sensation. But Nadella, who rose through Microsoft’s ranks to become its third CEO in 2014, has certainly become one of the tech industry’s leading cloud advocates. In the process, he’s transformed Microsoft…

5G technology brings 3-D views to inter-vehicle communication

The safety of road users can be increased through new solutions and services enabled by the 5G technology. VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland, in cooperation with businesses, has developed new solutions related to road weather services, road maintenance, automated driving, and real-time inter-vehicle transmission of 3-D views. “The speed of the 5G network enables transmitting large 3-D views between vehicles. As a result, the communication distances of car observations can be increased and data can be obtained from areas…

Smartphones used to track migrations caused by climate change

La Guajira, a department located in northeastern Colombia, on the border with Venezuela, suffered a severe drought in 2014. Credit: David Taggart Spanish researchers have developed a system that tracks human displacement caused by climate change using the tracks of mobile phones. With this model, which was tested during a severe drought in Colombia in 2014, it was determined that the portion of the population that migrated due to this event was 10 percent during the six months of the…

T-25 days until Chrome starts flagging HTTP sites as “Not Secure”

Less than one month from today, on July 23, Google will start prominently labeling any site loaded in Chrome without HTTPS as “Not Secure“. Check my site! Checking Domain already redirects to HTTPS Domain will be labeled “Not Secure” Error Current (Chrome 67) http://  Current (Chrome 67) https://  July 2018 (Chrome 68) https://  July 2018 (Chrome 68) http://  When we wrote about Google’s plans back in February, the percent of sites loaded over HTTPS clocked in at 69.7%. Just one…

Self-tuning services via real-time machine learning – Facebook Code

To the billions of people using Facebook, our services may look like a single, unified mobile app or website. From inside the company, the view is different. Facebook is built using thousands of services, with functions ranging from balancing internet traffic to transcoding images to providing reliable storage. The efficiency of Facebook as a whole is the sum of the efficiencies of its individual services, and each service is typically optimized in its own way, with approaches that may be difficult to generalize or adapt…

Tiny sensors may avert earthquake damage, track sonar danger, ‘listen’ to pipelines

Tiny accelerometers being created in SFU professor Behraad Bahrenyi’s Intelligent Sensing Laboratory are capable of capturing the most sensitive seismic activities. Credit: Simon Fraser University Could a few seconds of warning be enough to mitigate the devastation of an impending earthquake? Tiny sensors being developed in a Simon Fraser University lab could help to give a pre-emptive head’s up, enough to secure critical infrastructure, such as bridges or power lines, and potentially save lives. Researchers in professor Behraad Bahreyni’s Intelligent…

Russian space experiments lead to a new 3-D bioprinting technique

Credit: Vladislav A Parfenov et al // Biofabrication, 2018 Thanks to magnetic levitation research in conditions of microgravity, scientists have developed a new technology for 3-D printing of biological tissues. In the future, this technology will help to create radiation-sensitive biological constructs and repair damaged tissues and human organs. The results are published in Biofabrication. There are many methods of 3-D bioprinting. Most of them use…
