We’re currently rolling out an opt-in beta for a new post editor on web which will leverage the Neue Post Format behind the scenes. It’s been a very long time coming – work on the Neue Post Format began in 2015 and was originally codenamed “Poster Child”, and it was borne out of a lot of things we learned dealing with the previous new post editor we released on web around that time. Over the years, the landscape of how…

The Evolution of Data Science Workbench

In October 2017, we published an article introducing Data Science Workbench (DSW), our custom, all-in-one toolbox for data science, complex geospatial analytics, and exploratory machine learning. It centralizes everything required to perform data preparation, ad-hoc analyses, model prototyping, workflow scheduling, dashboarding, and collaboration in a single-pane, web-based graphical user interface.  In this article, we reflect on the evolution of DSW over the last 3 years. We review our journey by looking at how DSW’s usage has evolved to include and…

Discovery of ray sperms’ unique swimming motion demonstrated with bio-inspired robot

The bio-inspired robot consists of three parts like the ray sperm: a spiral head made of rigid iron wire, a helical tail made of soft cotton wire, and two motors as the midpiece for the energy supply. Credit: City University of Hong Kong It is generally agreed that sperm “swim” by beating or rotating their soft tails. However, a research team led by scientists from City University of Hong Kong (CityU) has discovered that ray sperms move by rotating both…

Introducing Zero Trust Private Networking

Starting today, you can build identity-aware, Zero Trust network policies using Cloudflare for Teams. You can apply these rules to connections bound for the public Internet or for traffic inside a private network running on Cloudflare. These rules are enforced in Cloudflare’s network of data centers in over 200 cities around the world, giving your team comprehensive network filtering and logging, wherever your users work, without slowing them down. Last week, my teammate Pete’s blog post described the release of…

World’s largest outdoor earthquake simulator undergoes major upgrade

The shake table’s platen, or floor, is put back into place by two cranes at the Englekirk Structural Engineering Center at UC San Diego. Credit: University of California San Diego A major upgrade to the world’s largest outdoor earthquake simulator reached a milestone mid-April when the facility’s floor—all 300,000 lbs of it—was put back into place. When completed this fall, the simulator will have the ability to reproduce multi-dimensional earthquake motions with unprecedented accuracy to make structures and their residents…

Latest tests on 6G return surprising results

Credit: CC0 Public Domain Imagine you’re a fisherman living by a lake with a rowboat. Every day, you row out on the calm waters and life is good. But then your family grows, and you need more fish, so you go to the nearby river. Then, you realize you go farther and faster on the river. You can’t take your little rowboat out there—it’s not built for those currents. So, you learn everything you can about how rivers work and…

An insect-computer hybrid system for search operations in disasters

The insect-computer hybrid system. a, The hybrid system consists of a living Madagascar hissing cockroach and a wireless backpack controller. Autonomous navigation is enabled by electrical stimulating the insect’s sensory system, while the infrared camera allows for on-device human detection via image classification. b, The established navigation program cooperates harmoniously with the insect’s natural locomotive ability to deal with unknown environment during the insect’s exploration missions. By controlling the stimulation (denoted with red arrows), the algorithm successfully directed the insect…

This year, they placed first in durability, low hook 1100-pound class, high hook 1100-pound class, low hook 1600-pound class and high hook 1600-pound class. They won five of the six in-person events…

New twist on DNA data storage lets users preview stored files

A double stranded DNA fragment. Credit: Vcpmartin/Wikimedia/ CC BY-SA 4.0 Researchers from North Carolina State University have turned a longstanding challenge in DNA data storage into a tool, using it to offer users previews of stored data files—such as thumbnail versions of image files. DNA data storage is an attractive technology because it has the potential to store a tremendous amount of data in a small package, it can store that data for a long time, and it does so…
