How many people keep in mind to take their iPods wherever they go? The rise of DVD noticed to the gradual but regular demise of VHS and, by 2008, DVD replaced VHS because the favoured video know-how each for recording and movie distribution. This is a really technical topic now and, I think, to make it to Turbofuture, it has to be on the cutting edge. All the things is wireless and hooked as much as smartphones and gadgets like Amazon’s Echo and suchlike. The OS of Blackphone 2 is made as a way to be secured by design. It has pre-loading of functions straight embedded in it, which means that the software has the capability of operating apps in an isolated surroundings, enabling you to use the app earlier than it really started to acquire knowledge, so that you remain accountable for your info always.

The show has rounded corners that comply with an exquisite curved design, and these corners are within an ordinary rectangle. When measured as a standard rectangular shape, the screen is 5.eighty five inches (iPhone 11 Pro), 6.forty six inches (iPhone 11 Pro Max), or 6.06 inches (iPhone 11, iPhone XR) diagonally.

TigerGraph taking advantage of graph database growth

With its focus on ease of use and strategy to attract new customers, TigerGraph is taking advantage of the growing interest in graph databases.

Graph databases are designed to simplify the process of connecting data points and allow single data points to connect with more than one other data point at a time. Data points stored in traditional relational databases, meanwhile, can only connect with one other data point at a time.

Among the benefits of the graph database approach are the ability to substantially speed up the time it takes to develop data sets that can be turned into meaningful insights. In addition, because of the way they simultaneously connect multiple data points, the databases can reveal complex relationships between data points such as a single person and their entire network of acquaintances.

Social media companies such as Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter were among the first adopters of graph databases, using them to discover connections between people, and now large organizations are starting to realize how graph databases can enable them to discover customer connections within data.

In addition to customer data, common use cases for graph databases include fraud detection and in healthcare IT systems.

SpaceX Completes Test Flight of Starship Mars Rocket Prototype

SpaceX on Tuesday successfully completed a flight of less than a minute of the largest prototype ever tested of the future rocket Starship, which the company hopes to use one day to colonise Mars.

“Mars is looking real,” SpaceX founder Elon Musk tweeted in response to a fan.



The current Starship prototype is fairly crude: it’s a large metallic cylinder, built in a few weeks by SpaceX teams on the Texas coast, in Boca Chica — but it’s still smaller than the actual rocket will be.

Several previous prototypes exploded during ground tests, during a learning process of trial and error.

In images shared Tuesday by several space specialists, including the space news website, the latest prototype — dubbed SN5 — reached an undetermined altitude before descending to land in a cloud of dust, demonstrating good trajectory control.



“And when the smoke cleared, she stood there majestically, after the 150 meter flight!” tweeted NASA’s top scientist, Thomas Zurbuchen.



The so-called “hop test” was planned to reach a 150-meter (492-foot) altitude, but SpaceX has not confirmed any details about the test flight.

In 2019, an earlier prototype — the smaller Starhopper — flew to 150 meters in altitude and returned

Machine learning for making machines: Applying visual search to mechanical parts

Mechanical engineers from Purdue University created an open-source dataset of more than 58,000 mechanical parts, designed for machine learning applications.

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. — Computer vision researchers use machine learning to train computers in visually recognizing objects – but very few apply machine learning to mechanical parts such as gearboxes, bearings, brakes, clutches, motors, nuts, bolts and washers.

A team of Purdue University mechanical engineers has created the first comprehensive open-source annotated database of more than 58,000 3D mechanical parts, designed to help researchers apply machine learning to those parts in actual machines.

“We are in the deep learning era, using computers to search for things visually,” said Karthik Ramani, Purdue’s Donald W. Feddersen Distinguished Professor of Mechanical Engineering. “But no one is focusing on the parts that go into machines: pipes, bearings, motors, washers, nuts and bolts, etc. Those are the things that are important to us as engineers and manufacturers. We want to be able to point a camera at a real-world part, and have the computer tell us everything about that part or design.”
