Growing the Data Visualization Community with deck.gl v5

Today, the Uber Visualization team open sourced deck.gl 5.3, the final deck.gl v5 release of our data visualization software. The v5 releases represent a major effort devoted to making deck.gl easier to use than ever before, and we hope that by sharing the story behind these improvements, we can get users excited to try out deck.gl v5’s new simplified APIs and features. The deck.gl v5 multi-view API offers new perspectives. When we launched deck.gl v1 in 2016, we were thinking…

The secret to honing kids’ language and literacy — ScienceDaily

If parents want to help their children develop language and literacy at a young age, reading bedtime stories together isn’t the only key to success. Research from Michigan State University found that a child’s ability to self-regulate is a critical element in childhood language and literacy development, and that the earlier they can hone these skills, the faster language and literacy skills develop leading to better skills in the long run. “Self-regulation is an umbrella term to define children’s abilities…

LinkedOut: A Request-Level Failure Injection Framework

More recently, though, another mechanism was added to inject failures into requests, via the invocation context (IC). The IC is a LinkedIn-specific, internal component of the Rest.li framework that allows keys and values to be passed into requests and propagated to all of the services involved in handling them. We built a new schema for disruption data that can be passed down through the IC, and then failures would instantly happen for that request. The LiX and IC methods are…

Are hotdogs a sandwich? – Square Corner Blog – Medium

Yes. And the reason is that protein inside of a partially-to-fully open piece of bread constitutes a sandwich. Okay, that’s out of the way. A sandwich. Photo by Daryn Nakhuda / CC BY There is an ongoing, raging debate at Caviar about sandwiches, hot dogs, and all manner of food. As you can image, as a food company we encounter all kinds of fun, quirky takes on food and as a result we get ourselves into a ye olde semantic debates…

Novel Kinect system helps keep Parkinson’s patients moving

Credit: Brunel University London A new system which helps people with Parkinson’s disease overcome debilitating walking problems has been developed by researchers at Brunel University London.  Built using Microsoft’s now-obsolete Kinect peripheral, the system monitors for and detects freezing of gait (FOG) in Parkinson’s patients. When an occurrence is observed a laser casts visual cues on the floor according to the patient’s location, helping them release their gait and improve their movement. It’s hoped the system, which was unveiled in…

Anti-theft sticker protects your valuables without revealing their location

VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland and Streamr have developed a prototype adhesive ID tag based on blockchain technology, which enables valuable goods to be protected without revealing their location. Possible applications include electronics, jewellery and caviar. The tag developed by Streamr and VTT is based on a smart contract, using blockchain technology, between the owner of the goods and the transport company. The contract defines the terms and conditions of transportation and storage, and the fee. For the purpose…

‘Virtual safe space’ to help bumblebees — ScienceDaily

The many threats facing bumblebees can be tested using a “virtual safe space” created by scientists at the University of Exeter. Bumble-BEEHAVE provides a computer simulation of how colonies will develop and react to multiple factors including pesticides, parasites and habitat loss. The tool lets researchers, farmers, policymakers and other interested parties test different land management techniques to find out what will be most beneficial for bees. Field experiments can be very timely and costly, so results from Bumble-BEEHAVE can…

Ergonomic eye-tracking technology for high-quality AR/VR experiences

Credit: IMEC Imec, the world-leading research and innovation hub in nano-electronics and digital technology, will demonstrate today at its Imec Technology Forum in Antwerp (ITF Belgium 2018), a new wireless eye-tracking technology based on electro-oculography (EOG), an ophthalmology technique used to examine eyes and record eye movement. The technology, which is integrated into a standard pair of eyeglasses, can significantly improve augmented reality and virtual reality (AR/VR) experiences. Moreover, imec aims to employ it for clinical research on neurodegenerative diseases.…
