10 Tech Tips To Set Up Your Home Office

When you set up your home office, your aim should be to create the ideal working environment, one where you can be highly productive. In order to achieve this, you need to identify what computer systems and office equipment you will need. If you skip this process of setting up your office properly, you will waste time using either outdated technology or manual methods to get things done. It’s a good idea to do some basic research to find out…

Method to precisely determine when cell has ‘cashed’ RNA ‘checks’ written by active genes — ScienceDaily

DNA has often been called “the book of life,” but this popular phrase makes some biologists squirm a bit. True, DNA bears our genes, which spell out the instructions our cells use to make proteins — those workhorse molecules that comprise our physical being and make just about everything in life possible. But the precise relationship between the protein “blueprints” encoded in genes and the amount of protein a given cell actually makes is by no means clear. When a…

Hyperspectral imaging technology enables new artificial intelligence applications

VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland has developed a highly cost-efficient hyperspectral imaging technology, which enables the introduction of new artificial intelligence applications into consumer devices. Spectral filtering technology takes advantage of the very-near-infrared (VNIR) wavelengths, which even low-cost mobile phone cameras can detect. Artificial intelligence can be used to interpret this environmental spectral data within images, which is not visible to the naked eye. The developed hyperspectral camera uses VNIR wavelengths, which exceed the red colour seen by the…

New neuron-like cells allow investigation into synthesis of vital cellular components

A new method to create synthetic neurons allows researchers to investigate how the human brain makes metabolic building blocks essential for the survival of all living organisms. A new study describes a core enzyme involved in the synthesis of these building blocks, called purines, and how the enzyme might change during infection by herpes simplex virus. Source link…

Large drop in traffic from the Democratic Republic of Congo

It is not uncommon for countries around the world to interrupt Internet access for political reasons or because of social unrest. We’ve seen this many times in the past (e.g. Gabon, Syria, Togo). Today, it appears that Internet access in the Democratic Republic of Congo has been greatly curtailed. The BBC reports that Internet access in the capital, Kinshasa was cut on Saturday and iAfrikan reports that the cut is because of anti-Kabila protests. Our monitoring of traffic from the…

Fotophire: A Comprehensive Photo Editing Software

Our social media profiles and the whole of the internet would be pretty boring if we have to post or look at the raw unedited pictures clicked from our phone. Professional photographers post stunning pictures but newbies strive to attain that level of professionalism and don’t step back in trying different photo editing applications. A similar quest led us to Wondershare Fotophire and we found the art of professionalism can be achieved simply and beautifully with this application. This post…

Engineers invent tiny vision processing chip for ultra-small smart vision systems and IoT applications

A team of researchers led by Associate Professor Massimo Alioto from the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the NUS Faculty of Engineering has developed a tiny vision processing chip, EQSCALE, which uses 20 times less power than existing technology. Credit: National University of Singapore A team of researchers from the National University of Singapore (NUS) has developed a novel microchip named EQSCALE that can capture visual details from video frames with extremely low power consumption. The video feature…

Like BeyondCorp, But You Don’t Have To Be A Google Employee To Use It

Tell me if this sounds familiar: any connection from inside the corporate network is trusted and any connection from the outside is not. This is the security strategy used by most enterprises today. The problem is that once the firewall, or gateway, or VPN server creating this perimeter is breached, the attacker gets immediate, easy and trusted access to everything. CC BY-SA 2.0 image by William Warby There’s a second problem with the traditional security perimeter model. It either requires…

Soft-skills Reading List – Square Corner Blog – Medium

As an engineering manager here at Square, I am often asked by engineers and other managers for advice on all sorts of different topics. If I’m lucky, they enjoy reading as much as I do, and I get the opportunity to recommend a book! Over the years, I’ve found myself returning to a core set of books that cover topics from communication and strategy to biases and leadership. Even if you’re not a manager yourself, understanding many of these topics…

Fancy Bear is Not Exactly What We Had in Mind

Excuse the long title, but whenever humorist Roy Blount Jr. would run across something totally contrary to his expectations, he would say mildly, “Well, that’s not exactly what I had in mind.”  By a convoluted series of circumstances, we in the U. S. have become vulnerable to election interference by a foreign power in a way that few people anticipated.  This is a lesson in how novel technologies and aggressions can outwit both legislators and organizations dedicated to preventing such…
