The Challenges Behind Rolling Out Security Updates To Your Docker Images

Since joining Lyft as a software engineer in August, I was pleased to learn that Lyft has automated security updates to Docker images. The crux of the solution is to generate pull requests to child docker images when parent images change. The pull requests cascade down to children of those child images until all images are up to date. This process begins at base image creation and completes when all images are updated. In this post, we will dive into…

However, map data can become stale over time, reducing its quality. As a customer-obsessed company, Uber reviews and addresses feedback in customer support tickets, which are submitted by riders, driver-partners,…

SING: Significantly faster AI-based audio

WHAT THE RESEARCH IS: A neural audio synthesizer that generates musical notes based on specific instrument, pitch, velocity (the force with which a note is played), and other inputs. Human evaluators assessed whether the notes the Symbol-to-Instrument Neural Generator (SING) creates seem natural — as if they were played on an actual flute, guitar, or other instrument. In many cases, they rated the system to be more realistic-sounding than similar artificial intelligence networks, even though the system requires a fraction…

Origami, 3D printing merge to make complex structures in one shot — ScienceDaily

By merging the ancient art of origami with 21st century technology, researchers have created a one-step approach to fabricating complex origami structures whose light weight, expandability, and strength could have applications in everything from biomedical devices to equipment used in space exploration. Until now, making such structures has involved multiple steps, more than one material, and assembly from smaller parts. “What we have here is the proof of concept of an integrated system for manufacturing complex origami. It has tremendous…
