Phnom Penh: Cloudflare’s 122nd Data Center

Cloudflare is excited to turn up our newest data center in Phnom Penh, Cambodia, making over 7 million Internet properties even faster. This is our 122nd data center globally, and our 41st data center in Asia. By the end of 2018, we expect that 95% of the world’s population will live in a country with a Cloudflare data center, as we grow our global network to span 200 cities. Cambodian Internet Home to over 16 million people, Cambodia has a…

Using Go as a scripting language in Linux

At Cloudflare we like Go. We use it in many in-house software projects as well as parts of bigger pipeline systems. But can we take Go to the next level and use it as a scripting language for our favourite operating system, Linux?gopher image CC BY 3.0 Renee FrenchTux image CC0 BY OpenClipart-Vectors Why consider Go as a scripting language Short answer: why not? Go is relatively easy to learn, not too verbose and there is a huge ecosystem of…

Civil engineers devise a cost-saving solution for cities

Credit: Concordia University Why fix a road today if it’s slated to be ripped up for new sewers next summer? This kind of question is at the heart of research from Tarek Zayed, and Amin Hammad, professors in Concordia’s Department of Building, Civil and Environmental Engineering (BCEE), and PhD candidates Soliman A. Abu-Samra and Mahmoud Ahmed. “Better coordination at city hall is the key to less costly repairs,” says Abu-Samra. “We’ve shown that streamlining maintenance results in huge financial…

Introducing the Uber AI Residency

Uber AI Labs is excited to announce the Uber AI Residency, an intensive one-year research training program slated to begin this summer.   Uber has invested substantially in machine learning and artificial intelligence, with groups around the company working on a variety of techniques—deep learning, reinforcement learning, neuroevolution, probabilistic modeling, and natural language processing, to name just a few—to enable a set of real world applications just as varied. When machine learning works well, Uber can provide improved user experiences across…

Technology to improve the resilience of bridges

Satzengraben bridge – Austria’s longest integral abutment bridge. Credit: Vienna University of Technology Bridges change shape, which is why they are usually built with expansion joints. At TU Wien, a technology has been developed that makes it possible to forego these joints, thus saving time and money. You can feel it straight away when you drive over a bridge quickly: the expansion joint that you rumble over at the start and end of the bridge. These joints are necessary as…

A Cornucopia of Area Rugs: Will a Diverse Set of Choices Help Customers Find More of What They Love?

Right now, Wayfair has about 86,000 rugs available for purchase. On the first page of our rug category page, however, we only have room for the top 48. You see even fewer if you don’t happen to scroll or swipe down. When it comes to our customer’s experience, what we choose to place at the top makes a big difference! At present, we don’t explicitly showcase a diverse array of products. On browse pages for categories such as rugs, couches,…

Augmented reality takes 3-D printing to next level

Cornell researchers are taking 3-D printing and 3-D modeling to a new level by using augmented reality (AR) to allow designers to design in physical space while a robotic arm rapidly prints the work. “Instead of designing 3-D models on the computer screen, we wanted to give users the opportunity to work in conjunction with the robot. We call it in-situ fabrication,” said Huaishu Peng, Cornell information science doctoral student. To use the Robotic Modeling Assistant (RoMA), a designer…

Why are Infographics Important for Your Sales?

According to various reports, more than 1.5 billion pieces of content, over 2 million videos, and at least 140 million tweets are created each day. You don’t need to be a genius to see that’s a hell lot of information. Now, this content explosion brings with it one problem – competition. When there are so many content pieces to choose from, readers tend to become picky. It means that even that value-packed blog might not deliver on your expectations. So,…
