Drones, high-tech camera revamp archaeology

In this Nov. 14, 2017 photo, Dartmouth’s Chad Hill readies a drone to be flown over a site of a Shaker Village in Enfield, NH. Hill and his Dartmouth colleague Jesse Casana are using drones equipped with thermal imaging cameras to study a half-dozen archaeological sites around the world. The cameras use heat differences between stone and the soil surrounding it to identify structures below the surface like foundations of buildings, which then can be further explored.

Incremental Data Capture for Oracle Databases at LinkedIn: Then and Now

We designed and developed an independent framework to propagate Oracle schema changes (DDLs) to Kafka. It allows near-synchronous propagation of schema changes through integration with the Oracle release framework. It also makes APIs available for on-demand invocation by downstream (e.g., Brooklin) consumers. Reliability: Operability, scalability, metrics The building blocks for our data capture “Version 2.0” discussed in detail above build several key capabilities to ensure the smooth running and operation of our data capture system. Monitoring and auto-remediation: We can…

The New DDoS Landscape

News outlets and blogs will frequently compare DDoS attacks by the volume of traffic that a victim receives. Surely this makes some sense, right? The greater the volume of traffic a victim receives, the harder to mitigate an attack – right? At least, this is how things used to work. An attacker would gain capacity and then use that capacity to launch an attack. With enough capacity, an attack would overwhelm the victim’s network hardware with junk traffic such that…

Want to try Warp? We just enabled the beta for you

Tomorrow is Thanksgiving in the United States. It’s a holiday for getting together with family characterized by turkey dinner and whatever it is that happens in American football. While celebrating with family is great, if you use a computer for your main line of work, sometimes the conversation turns to how to setup the home wifi or can Russia really use Facebook to hack the US election. Just in case you’re a geek who finds yourself in that position this…

2017 Pinterest Engineering intern projects – Pinterest Engineering – Medium

Every summer Pinterest welcomes a new class of software engineering interns to our San Francisco HQ. Each intern (or Pintern, as we say) works on an important technical project that directly impacts our product. Pinterns demo their projects weekly in front of the whole company at Friday Q&A, hosted by our co-founders and other leaders across Pinterest. In this post you’ll learn about some of this year’s class and what they built during their internship. Caroline Lo | Stanford University,…

Toyota’s Newest Humanoid Partner Robot » Curious Cat Science and Engineering Blog

Toyota’s Newest Humanoid Partner Robot Posted on November 22, 2017  Comments (0) T-HR3 reflects Toyota’s broad-based exploration of how advanced technologies can help to meet people’s unique mobility needs. T-HR3 represents an evolution from previous generation instrument-playing humanoid robots, which were created to test the precise positioning of joints and pre-programmed movements, to a platform with capabilities that can safely assist humans in a variety of settings, such as the home, medical facilities, construction sites, disaster-stricken areas and even outer…

Screaming Circuits: Power Distribution – To route, or To Plane

Power distribution, on a PC board, can come in a number of forms. The three most common methods are You can route power and ground. You can use surface layer floods. You can use internal planes. After component positioning, you’ll need to look at power and ground distribution. With a two layer board, your options are limited to individually routing power and ground, or using a polygon fill, also called a flood or pour.For simple, low speed…
