PCB Assembly Services – Screaming Circuits: ROSSUM’S UNIVERSAL ROBOTS MONTH

A Few Words from Sara Shepherd, Screaming Circuits Contributing Author… “Robot” was first publicly used by Karel Čapek in the January 25, 1921 debut of his play play “R.U.R.”, or “Rossum’s Universal Robots.” January is not only the month the play premiered, but Karel Čapek was born on January 9, 1890. In Screaming Circuits world, January is Rossum’s Universal Robots month! With this January marking the 100th anniversary of the word robot, let’s take some time to examine the origins…

There’s lots of water in the world’s most explosive volcano — ScienceDaily

There isn’t much in Kamchatka, a remote peninsula in northeastern Russia just across the Bering Sea from Alaska, besides an impressive population of brown bears and the most explosive volcano in the world. Kamchatka’s Shiveluch volcano has had more than 40 violent eruptions over the last 10,000 years. The last gigantic blast occurred in 1964, creating a new crater and covering an area of nearly 100 square kilometers with pyroclastic flows. But Shiveluch is actually currently erupting, as it has…

Manas HNSW Realtime: Powering Realtime Embedding-Based Retrieval

Tim Koh | Software Engineer, Core Product Serving InfraGeorge Wu | Software Engineer, Core Product Serving InfraMichael Mi | Tech Lead, Core Product Serving Infra In our previous blog post, we introduced our in-house search engine — Manas — and shared how we served term-based search at scale. Since launch, Manas has grown to become one of the key candidate generators in Pinterest, serving many use cases that expand beyond its initial purpose. In particular, embedding-based retrieval is a key component of Pinterest’s discovery and recommendations…

Physicists succeed in filming a phase transition with extremely high spatial and temporal resolution — ScienceDaily

Laser beams can be used to change the properties of materials in an extremely precise way. This principle is already widely used in technologies such as rewritable DVDs. However, the underlying processes generally take place at such unimaginably fast speeds and at such a small scale that they have so far eluded direct observation. Researchers at the University of Göttingen and the Max Planck Institute (MPI) for Biophysical Chemistry in Göttingen have now managed to film, for the first time,…

NSAIDs might exacerbate or suppress COVID-19 depending on timing, mouse study suggests — ScienceDaily

New research shows that non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) reduced both antibody and inflammatory responses to SARS-CoV-2 infection in mice. The study appears this week in the Journal of Virology, a publication of the American Society for Microbiology. The research is important because “NSAIDs are arguably the most commonly used anti-inflammatory medications,” said principal investigator Craig B. Wilen, Assistant Professor of Laboratory Medicine and Immunology, Yale University School of Medicine. In addition to taking NSAIDs for chronic conditions such as arthritis,…

Budget-split testing: A trustworthy and powerful approach to marketplace A/B testing

Co-authors: Min Liu, Vangelis Dimopoulos, Elise Georis, Jialiang Mao, Di Luo, and Kang Kang The LinkedIn ecosystem drives member and customer value through a series of marketplaces (e.g., the ads marketplace, the talent marketplace, etc.). We maximize that value by making data-informed product decisions via A/B testing. Traditional A/B tests on our marketplaces, however, are often statistically biased and under-powered. To mitigate this, we developed “budget-split” testing, which provides more trustworthy and powerful marketplace A/B testing. Read on to learn…

From Mizzou to Mars: Engineering Alumnus Works on Mars Ascent Vehicle

A Mizzou Engineer’s digital fingerprints will be on the Mars Ascent Vehicle when it makes its historic voyage to the Red Planet in 2026. Christopher Whetsel ’19, works at NASA and has been involved in the program both on the software engineering and project management side. “It’s part of the Mars Sample Return Program and aims to take samples of Martian dirt and return them to earth so they can be studied in labs here,” he said. “We can send…

Hematopoietic stem cell transplants may provide long-term benefit for people with MS — ScienceDaily

A new study shows that intense immunosuppression followed by a hematopoietic stem cell transplant may prevent disability associated with multiple sclerosis (MS) from getting worse in 71% of people with relapsing-remitting MS for up to 10 years after the treatment. The research is published in the January 20, 2021, online issue of Neurology®, the medical journal of the American Academy of Neurology. The study also found that in some people their disability improved over 10 years after treatment. Additionally, more…
