IBM's Weather Company has launched Deep Thunder, an advanced weather forecasting model which will use machine learning to precisely forecast weather impact on businesses.Weather Company analyses about 100 terabytes of data on a daily basis which comes from different sources including third party sources, location data and through Weather Underground's network of more than 195,000 personal weather stations.According to IBM, businesses around the world are now relying on accurate weather forecasting and Weather Company's high performance forecast accuracy includes regional models that offer fresh guidance every three hours.Deep Thunder models developed by IBM Research can be customised to the extent that business clients can pin-point weather condition for areas as small as 0.2 to 1.2 miles2.This is also very much relevant to insurance companies in analysing the impact of past weather events and calculate the validity of claims based on weather damage.The Weather Company science & forecast operations head Mary Glackin said: "The Weather Company has relentlessly focused on mapping the atmosphere, while IBM Research has pioneered the development of techniques to capture very small scale features to boost accuracy at the hyper local level for critical decision making.
Click to Open Overlay GalleryA Long March-3C carrier rocket carrying the 23rd satellite with the BeiDou Navigation Satellite System lifts off at the Xichang Satellite Launch Center in Xichang, Sichuan Province, China on June 12, 2016.Though each places satellites in slightly different orbits and at different altitudes, they all work on the same idea, providing global coverage with enough signal to allow devices on Earth to triangulate a precise location.GLONASS has had a lot of trouble keeping their satellites in working order, and is notably cagey about system failures, which to Parkinson s mind keeps them in a vicious cycle of limited viability.So it s likely that, if BeiDou is to succeed, it s by being welcomed into the international GNSS club.The US and China are already frenemies at best; a significant military advantage for the Chinese could jeopardize the relationship further.But I ve been saying for years that our ground soldiers should have sets that pick up US, Russian, Chinese, and European signals, and a very rapid technique of letting that ground soldier know when not to use it—a military analogue of WAAS.
One of the innovations in Mac OS Sierra is that it is no longer possible to open unsigned applications simply by clicking on them. In El Capitan and earlier versions was the option to allow applications downloaded from the "anywhere" in the Security preferences and privacy.

DigitTimes which reported the news says its sources in the supply-chain claim that shipments of chips and components for the Apple Watch 2 have been beefed up which will only begin in the third quarter ie, from July to September.In all probability, assembly of the watch will take place around the same time readying the watch for a September-October release.As great as these updates are, they pale in comparison to the Watch's newest feature: SOS.Pressing and holding the side button which previously let you turn the watch off or put it into low power mode starts a countdown then automatically calls the local emergency phone number such as 999 in the UK or 911 in the US .With watchOS 3, the Apple Watch can call the emergency services with a long press of the side buttonThe Watch will then alert your pre-defined emergency contact or contacts with a map of your location, and all the while your also pre-defined personal and health information will appear on the screen, to be read by paramedics and hospital staff.But from this autumn around September or October we will get a fresh new look for the existing Watch, with much improved performance, a simpler and more unified interface, and a great, potentially life-saving, new feature.
