Cloudflare obtains new ISO/IEC 27701:2019 privacy certification and what that means for you

This post is also available in French and German. Cloudflare is one of the first organisations in our industry to have achieved ISO/IEC 27701:2019 certification, and the first web performance & security company to be certified to the new ISO privacy standard as both a data processor and controller. Providing transparency into our privacy practices has always been a priority for us. We think it is important that we do more than talk about our commitment to privacy — we…

Combining light, superconductors could boost AI capabilities — ScienceDaily

As artificial intelligence has attracted broad interest, researchers are focused on understanding how the brain accomplishes cognition so they can construct artificial systems with general intelligence comparable to humans’ intelligence. Many have approached this challenge by using conventional silicon microelectronics in conjunction with light. However, the fabrication of silicon chips with electronic and photonic circuit elements is difficult for many physical and practical reasons related to the materials used for the components. In Applied Physics Letters, by AIP Publishing, researchers…

Cloudflare Stream now supports NFTs

Cloudflare Stream has been helping creators publish their videos online without having to think about video quality, device compatibility, storage buckets or digging through FFmpeg documentation. These creators want to be able to claim ownership of their works and assert control over how that ownership claim is transferred. Increasingly, many of those creators are looking to Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs). NFTs are a special type of smart contract that allows provable ownership of the contract on the blockchain. Some call NFTs…

Scientists generate human-monkey chimeric embryos — ScienceDaily

Investigators in China and the United States have injected human stem cells into primate embryos and were able to grow chimeric embryos for a significant period of time — up to 20 days. The research, despite its ethical concerns, has the potential to provide new insights into developmental biology and evolution. It also has implications for developing new models of human biology and disease. The work appears April 15 in the journal Cell. “As we are unable to conduct certain…

Researcher uses bat-inspired design to develop new approach to sound location

Synthetic bat ear designed by Rolf Mueller and his team. Credit: Virginia Tech Inspired by the workings of a bat’s ear, Rolf Mueller, a professor of mechanical engineering at Virginia Tech, has created bio-inspired technology that determines the location of a sound’s origin. Mueller’s development works from a simpler and more accurate model of sound location than previous approaches, which have traditionally been modeled after the human ear. His work marks the first new insight for determining sound location in…

Announcing Cloudflare for SaaS for Everyone

Software as a Service (SaaS) is one of the fastest-growing business segments in the IT market. SaaS providers can be anything from a web hosting provider to a subscription service, to an e-commerce platform. While well-known SaaS providers are industry giants, every day new SaaS companies are created, with the potential to become the next Salesforce. But while it’s a fast-growing segment, if you’re a SaaS company, you know it’s not an easy path to forge. Cloudflare released a solution…

Uncovering dynamics of ultrasmall, ultrafast groups of atoms — ScienceDaily

Our high-speed, high-bandwidth world constantly requires new ways to process and store information. Semiconductors and magnetic materials have made up the bulk of data storage devices for decades. In recent years, however, researchers and engineers have turned to ferroelectric materials, a type of crystal that can be manipulated with electricity. In 2016, the study of ferroelectrics got more interesting with the discovery of polar vortices — essentially spiral-shaped groupings of atoms — within the structure of the material. Now a…

Improve your page experience with AMP and Cloudflare Workers Unbound

In this blog post we’re going to look at how you can optimize the page experience of your AMP pages by running AMP Optimizer in a Cloudflare Worker. Towards a better user experience on the web A great user experience on the web means more than just having a website that loads fast (although that continues to be a critical part of the user experience). There are many factors that contributing to a great experience, such as: Loading speed Responsiveness…

Is There A Union in Amazon’s Future?

  Amazon is one of the biggest and most powerful corporations on Earth.  It is one of the main reasons why shopping nowadays usually involves a smart phone and a delivery truck rather than a drive down to a brick-and-mortar store.  Its tremendous dominance was only increased by the COVID-19 pandemic, which shut down (and often eventually shuttered) many local and regional in-person businesses, but only improved Amazon’s bottom line.  So when such a corporate giant faces a threat to…

Welcome to Developer Week 2021

Runtimes, serverless, edge compute, containers, virtual machines, functions, pods, virtualenv. All names for things developers need to go from writing code to running code. It’s a painful reality that for most developers going from code they’ve written to code that actually runs can be hard. Excruciatingly, software development is made hard by dependencies on modules, by scaling, by security, by cost, by availability, by deployment, by builds, and on and on. All the ugly reality of crystallizing thoughts into lines…
