A Traffic Monitor for Digital Transformation

Artificial intelligence is already turning industries on their heads, and the technology is poised to make an even greater impact on the world in the years to come. Doctors are using AI tools to help with diagnostics, carmakers are working to make autonomous vehicles a widespread reality and nearly all of us each day view online or mobile advertisements that were selected specifically for us by an algorithm. Too often, though, business and IT leaders take a limited view of…

Even missing school from kindergarten to eighth grade matters — ScienceDaily

Kids who miss a lot of school from kindergarten to eighth grade may suffer unexpected costs as young adults, a new study finds. Researchers found that those who were more regularly absent in these early years of school were less likely to vote, reported having greater economic difficulties and had poorer educational outcomes when they were 22 to 23 years old. The results suggest early school absenteeism should be taken more seriously, said Arya Ansari, lead author of the study…

Making the WAF 40% faster

Cloudflare’s Web Application Firewall (WAF) protects against malicious attacks aiming to exploit vulnerabilities in web applications. It is continuously updated to provide comprehensive coverage against the most recent threats while ensuring a low false positive rate. As with all Cloudflare security products, the WAF is designed to not sacrifice performance for security, but there is always room for improvement. This blog post provides a brief overview of the latest performance improvements that were rolled out to our customers. Transitioning from…

Implementing Fail-Operational Autonomous Systems | Electronic Design

Modern-day connected vehicles are perceived as “servers on wheels.” Even without fully autonomous systems, advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS) provide the driver with a set of comprehensive driving aids such as traffic-sign detection and adaptive cruise control that generate megabytes of data per second. Routing, direction guidance, and traffic alerts based around global navigation satellite systems (GNSS) are now ubiquitous in most vehicles. Coupled with the increased use of infotainment systems, vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V), and vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I) applications, the cars of today…

A Systems Engineering Approach to AI

Most original equipment manufacturers automate their industrial machinery using proven PLC or dedicated controller technologies for a good reason: They provide the ultimate in reliability. And while the capabilities and ease of use for these traditional platforms have marched forward, they still lag behind many of the features delivered by common consumer-grade technologies. Today, software developers for the consumer market take advantage of open source code to enable connectivity, databases, visualization and more. Established developers in the industrial operational technology…

Mizzou to Offer Cyber Security Camp Virtually this Summer

Mizzou Engineering will offer a cyber security camp for high school students virtually this year. The Hacker Tracker camp is typically part of Mizzou Summer Camps. However, the university has canceled other 2020 camps because of COVID-19 concerns. The Hacker Tracker Cyber Security Virtual Camp gives participants the opportunity to learn coding and cyber defense strategies using real-life scenarios. Prasad Calyam and Songjie Wong will lead the event. Calyam is an associate professor in electrical engineering. Wong is a cyberinfrastructure…

Why Bulletproofing the Li-Ion Supply Chain Could Be a Lifesaver

As we come to terms with the worldwide effects of the coronavirus pandemic, the reverberations caused by it are reshaping our society’s perspective on a wide range of affected areas. The stock market gave back most all of its gains since 2016. The worlds of sports and tourism have come to grinding halts. Social events and public gatherings have been either postponed, canceled, or switched to online. To exacerbate the situation, there’s no clarity on when normalcy will be restored.…

Empowering Pinterest data scientists and machine learning engineers with PySpark

Tien T. Nguyen | Machine Learning Platform, Jingge Zhou | Machine Learning Platform, Zirui Li | Data Processing Platform Data scientists and machine learning engineers at Pinterest found themselves hitting major challenges with existing tools. Hive and Presto were readily accessible tools for large scale data transformations, but complex logic is difficult to write in SQL. Some engineers wrote complex logics in Cascading or Scala Spark jobs, but these have a steep learning curve and take significantly more time to…
