What’s coming in the next five years? — ScienceDaily

Single unmanned autonomous vehicles (UAVs) directed by joysticks, radio controllers, and mobile phones are already accomplishing a variety of useful tasks, such as aerial photography and security patrols. But using multiple drones requires multiple human operators, and this presents a coordination problem. Now a single operator using emerging human-brain interfaces can control a swarm of drones, making possible new classes of applications, according to Panos Artemiadis, director of the Human-Oriented Robotics and Control (HORC) Lab at Arizona State University. Artemiadis…

Snapchat users motivation, level of interest — ScienceDaily

The simplicity of the platform and brevity of posts are key factors in determining how students can become addicted. In a world where people struggle with a seemingly diminishing attention span, Snapchat could be the best form of communication. Posts last just 10 seconds. That’s it. No deep thoughts or analytical narrative to the posts. Quick, simple and move on to the next topic. But a study by Texas Tech University associate professor Narissra Punyanunt-Carter, graduate student J.J. Delacruz and…

Introducing Cloudflare Warp: Hide Behind The Edge

I work at a company whose job it is to be attacked. As I’m writing this, an automatic mitigation is fighting two ongoing DDoS attacks.

Biodegradable microsensors for food monitoring

The sensor also adheres to fish skin and would help monitor the freshness of a cargo. Credit: Salvatore et al, Adv. Func. Materials, 2017 A new generation of microsensors could provide the vital link between food products and the Internet of Things. ETH researchers have developed an ultra-thin temperature sensor that is both biocompatible and biodegradable. Nowadays microsensors are already used in many different applications, such as the detection of poisonous gases. They are also integrated into miniaturised transmitter/receiver systems,…

Fixing the Streaming Video Market

Cloudflare turns seven years old today. We launched on September 27, 2010. It was only a few days after our launch that we got our first request to support video streaming. Yet, until today, we’d avoided it. Why? Simply put: the video streaming market is screwed up. While there’s a lot of money spent on video, there are only really about 1,000 customers that do any meaningful level of streaming. This is in large part because it’s technically far too…

Introducing the Cloudflare Geo Key Manager

Cloudflare’s customers recognize that they need to protect the confidentiality and integrity of communications with their web visitors. The widely accepted solution to this problem is to use the SSL/TLS protocol to establish an encrypted HTTPS session, over which secure requests can then be sent. Eavesdropping is protected against as only those who have access to the “private key” can legitimately identify themselves to browsers and decrypt encrypted requests. Today, more than half of all traffic on the web uses…

The Architecture That Made Unmetered Mitigation Possible

When building a DDoS mitigation service it’s incredibly tempting to think that the solution is scrubbing centers or scrubbing servers. I, too, thought that was a good idea in the beginning, but experience has shown that there are serious pitfalls to this approach. A scrubbing server is a dedicated machine that receives all network traffic destined for an IP address and attempts to filter good traffic from bad. Ideally, the scrubbing server will only forward non-DDoS packets to the Internet…
