There's no silver bullet, but "eye-cow" technique is one available tool for farmers.
The $43 billion Australian software giant Atlassian has stayed resilient through the coronavirus pandemic, as its catalog of collaboration software drove thousands of new customers during the remote work boom. One of Atlassian's top priorities is investing aggressively in its cloud products, as well as making sure they work well with each other. Atlassian faces some competition from Microsoft, but Gregg Moskowitz, managing director at Mizuho, says Atlassian has a stronger product portfolio and a different way of gaining customers. Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. Atlassian began as an idea by college friends Scott Farquhar and Mike Cannon-Brookes in 2002: A company dedicated to making tools for their fellow software developers. Eighteen years or so later, Atlassian is now Australia's biggest tech success story, valued at $43 billion, with its stock price growing sixfold since its 2015 IPO. As the world continues to turn to software to power everything from finance to fitness, Atlassian has grown accordingly, adding 3,000 new customers in its most recent quarter, and 6,000 the quarter before — even amid the coronavirus pandemic.  In that quarter, the company reported on Thursday, it booked some $430 million in revenue, up 29% from the same period last year. Its stock is up 44% from the beginning of the year, putting it well ahead of the turbulence that's rocked the stock market. It all speaks to the momentum that Atlassian has built in the industry: Its flagship product Jira, which is used for tracking software projects, is much stronger than its competitors, says Gregg Moskowitz, managing director at Mizuho Financial Group, who watches Atlassian closely. He expects that its business will only grow more over time, even if Atlassian faces some coronavirus-related impact on smaller customers or customers in travel and hospitality. Plus, customers will prioritize continuing to pay for Atlassian's products since it helps employees work together remotely, Moskowitz says. "There can be additional challenges although we really think Atlassian will be more resilient than most software companies," Moskowitz said. The one company that could possibly pose as a threat over time is Microsoft, as the tech titan gets more into the developer space, Moskowitz says — though he's not too concerned about it, given Atlassian's lead in the specific niches in which it plays.  "There's a very large technology gap that exists in the market where Atlassian plays," Moskowitz said. "Microsoft has been here longer than Atlassian. There certainly hasn't been anything to derail Atlassian's growth. Customers will unquestionably view Atlassian as a superior offering."

"Co-CEO roles can be tricky. They don't always work as well as advertised. It truly has been an important part to the story. They remain good friends and are also neighbors." Outside of Atlassian, Cannon-Brookes also invests in and advises several small startups, works as a venture partner at the Australian firm Blackbird Ventures, and teaches computer science at the University of New South Wales, where he attended school.   Scott Farquhar Title: Cofounder and co-CEO Scott Farquhar cofounded and leads Atlassian with his friend Mike Cannon-Brookes, who met in college and founded the company shortly after graduation in 2002. Since then, Atlassian has grown to count 60,000 organizations as users. Farquhar oversees the company's go-to-market, business, and IT teams. Moskowitz says Cannon-Brookes and Farquhar have also succeeded in fostering a strong culture and environment within the company.  Notably, Atlassian sells from the bottom up, by offering free versions of their software for individual developers to use. When developers start using it and loving it, they bring it to their companies, who become paid customers. Moskowitz says Cannon-Brookes and Farquhar have a "long-term orientation" on where the company is going, which has helped Atlassian grow. "They're not going to make decisions on whether we can drive a couple of extra points for this quarter and this year," Moskowitz said. "It's more predicated on the belief that we're delivering value to our customers, and we're listening to them and building much better products. That's going to benefit everyone in the end, including the company's financials and general returns."  Outside of Atlassian, Farquhar invests in and advises in several small startups, and he's also a principal at Australian firm Skip Capital. Anu Bharadwaj Title: Head of Platform and Enterprise Cloud and Vice President of Product Reports to: Mike Cannon-Brookes, cofounder and co-CEO Anu Bharadwaj is in charge of Atlassian's current top priority, which is to bring its cloud products to customers. Bharadwaj runs Atlassian's cloud business and focuses on large business customers. She also runs Atlassian's product management teams. She has worked at the company for about three and a half years.   Bharadwaj started at Atlassian as the group product manager of Atlassian's flagship software planning product Jira. On her watch, Jira's user base and revenue grew steadily, even as it expanded to include new industry-specific products like Jira Service Desk.  She also plays a key role in the transformation of Atlassian's business, as products like Jira, BitBucket, and Confluence move from traditional server-based products to the cloud. Prior to Atlassian, Bharadwaj worked at Microsoft for over 10 years, where she worked on and managed developer tools.

Researchers have found another cutting-edge use for 3D printing, namely creating optical silica preforms to make fibers, simplifying their production and substantially reducing manufacturing costs.Optical fibers, of course, have many uses including – but far from limited to – the very infrastructure of ultrafast internet.So any savings that could be brought in on the manufacturing side will help with the rollout of speedy connections, and hopefully the pricing of them, too, when it comes to the consumer.This particular project is a collaboration between research teams drawn from multiple universities across the globe, including the University of Technology in Sydney, the University of New South Wales, and both Harbin Engineering University and Yanshan University in China.As The Engineer reports, John Canning, who heads up the Sydney-based team, commented: “Making silica optical fibre involves the labour-intensive process of spinning tubes on a lathe, which requires the fibre’s core or cores to be precisely centered.“With additive manufacturing [3D printing], there’s no need for the fibre geometry to be centered.
With the use of liquid metals, coal, carbon emissions and relatively easy capture.this Method also works for other forms of pollution.This is a relatively simple, low-cost, energy-efficient way to separate the carbon dioxide in the air from the oxygen, and liquid metals.the Method that the researchers at the University of New South Wales, has been developed to do not even need the program. "just about Anyone with a cocktail shaker, and a stove in the home to create a catalyst that can be used to koldioxidomvandling, clean water, and other contaminants," says professor Kourosh Kalantar-Zadeh, at the university's school of chemical engineering and technology, in a statement.the Key is to heat a mixture of the liquid metal, which will be a catalyst in the electrochemical koldioxidomvandlingen, according to the study, published in the journal Nature Communications.
Forget the laboratory, substances that can solve environmental problems by capturing carbon dioxide, decontaminating water and cleaning up pollutants can be easily created in a kitchen, a UNSW Sydney study shows.In a paper published today in Nature Communications, UNSW chemical engineers shone a light on the mysterious world of liquid metals and their role as catalysts to speed up chemical processes using low amounts of energy."They can do this by using a combination of liquid metals like gallium, indium, bismuth and tin in alloys that can be melted under 300ºC on a cooktop or in an oven.""Eutectic alloys are the mixes of metals that produce the lowest melting point at a particular combination," says Dr Tang.Professor Kalantar-Zadeh says the specific mix ratio of eutectic substances produces the maximum natural chaos at the nano-level, which in turn brings the melting point down."This maximum chaos helps, when we solidify the liquid metals, to naturally produce so many defects in the material that the 'catalytic' activity is significantly enhanced," Professor Kalantar-Zadeh says.
UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. -- A multi-pronged data analysis approach that can strengthen the security of Internet of Things (IoT) devices -- such as smart TVs, home video cameras and baby monitors -- against current risks and threats has created by a team of Penn State World Campus students pursuing master of professional studies degrees in information sciences."Yet no strategy exists to identify when and where a network security attack on these devices is taking place and what such an attack even looks like."The team applied a combination of approaches often used in traditional network security management to an IoT network simulated by the University of New South Wales Canberra.Specifically, they showed how statistical data, machine learning and other data analysis methods could be applied to assure the security of IoT systems across their lifecycle.They then used intrusion detection and a visualization tool, to determine whether or not an attack had already occurred or was in progress within that network.The researchers describe their approach and findings in a paper to be presented today (Oct. 10) at the 2019 IEEE Ubiquitous Computing, Electronics and Mobile Communication Conference.
A combination of off-the-shelf quantum dot nanotechnology and a smartphone camera soon could allow doctors to identify antibiotic-resistant bacteria in just 40 minutes, potentially saving patient lives.Staphylococcus aureus (golden staph), is a common form of bacterium that causes serious and sometimes fatal conditions such as pneumonia and heart valve infections.Rapid identification of MRSA is essential for effective treatment, but current methods make it a challenging process, even within well-equipped hospitals.Soon, however, that may change, using nothing except existing technology.Researchers from Macquarie University and the University of New South Wales, both in Australia, have demonstrated a proof-of-concept device that uses bacterial DNA to identify the presence of Staphylococcus aureus positively in a patient sample - and to determine if it will respond to frontline antibiotics.In a paper published in the international peer-reviewed journal Sensors and Actuators B: Chemical the Macquarie University team of Dr Vinoth Kumar Rajendran, Professor Peter Bergquist and Associate Professor Anwar Sunna with Dr Padmavathy Bakthavathsalam (UNSW) reveal a new way to confirm the presence of the bacterium, using a mobile phone and some ultra-tiny semiconductor particles known as quantum dots.
Engineers at UNSW have shown that it is possible to deliver medications directly to affected organs using tiny, self-propelled micro-submarines.The researchers have developed micrometer-sized submarines that exploit biological environments to tune their buoyancy to enable them to carry drugs to specific locations inside the body.Researcher Dr. Kang Liang says that the knowledge can be used to design next-gen “micro-motors” or nano-drug delivery vehicles to reach specific targets inside the body.Liang says that the micro-motor uses different external driving forces, such as light, heat, or magnetic field, to actively navigate to a specific location.The team, in this case, designed micro-motors that no longer rely on external manipulations to navigate to a particular site.What makes the tiny creations the team has come up with unique is that they respond to changes in biological pH environments to self-adjust buoyancy.
When it comes to subjects like mental health or addiction, one should be able to trust that an app designed to help you through such a difficult and personal problem would take your privacy seriously.The study—conducted in January of last year by researchers with the University of New South Wales and the Department of Psychiatry at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in the US and published Friday at the journal JAMA Network Open—examined a total of 36 of the top-ranking free apps for smoking cessation and depression available in the Android and iOS app stores in the US and Australia.Those included seven apps available for both, as well as another 14 exclusive to iOS and 15 only available on Android.For each of those popular health and mental wellness apps—which were tested on a Huawei Nexus 6P and iPhone 6S—the researchers examined their respective privacy policies, including those available in their app descriptions, on their associated websites, and linked or included on the app itself.They found that 25 of 36 of the apps examined did have some form of privacy policy—but here’s where that gets tricky.For those with privacy policies, the researchers found that only 23 apps were disclosing the possibility that a user’s data could be shared with a third party, with 16 disclosing that data could be shared with advertisers and 14 indicating data could be shared with both advertisers and analytics services.
This study is the latest to highlight the potential risks of entrusting sensitive health information to our phones.Though most of the easily-found depression or smoking cessation apps in the Android and iOS stores share data, only a fraction of them actually disclose this.And previous studies have reported health apps with security flaws or that shared data with advertisers and analytics companies.In this new study, published Friday in the journal JAMA Network Open, researchers searched for apps using the keywords “depression” and “smoking cessation.” Then they downloaded the apps and checked to see whether the data put into them was shared by intercepting the app’s traffic.Much of the data the apps shared didn’t immediately identify the user or was even strictly medical.And a few shared very sensitive information, like health diary entries, self reports about substance use, and usernames.
Bottom Line: This study looked at the privacy practices of popular apps for depression and smoking cessation.Researchers assessed the content of privacy policies and compared disclosures regarding data sharing with commercial third parties to actual behavior for 36 apps.Authors: Kit Huckvale, M.B.Ch.B., M.Sc., Ph.D., UNSW (University of New South Wales) Sydney, Australia, and coauthorsEditor's Note: The article contains conflict of interest and funding/support disclosures.Please see the article for additional information, including other authors, author contributions and affiliations, financial disclosures, funding and support, etc.Want to embed a link to this study in your story?
A world-record result in reducing errors in semiconductor 'spin qubits', a type of building block for quantum computers, has been achieved using the theoretical work of quantum physicists at the University of Sydney Nano Institute and School of Physics.The experimental result by University of New South Wales engineers demonstrated error rates as low as 0.043 percent, lower than any other spin qubit.The joint research paper by the Sydney and UNSW teams was published this week in Nature Electronics and is the journal's cover story for April.A 'spin qubit' is a quantum bit that encodes information based on the quantised magnetic direction of a quantum object, such as an electron.Australia, and Sydney in particular, is emerging as a global leader in quantum technology.While much of the recent focus in quantum computing has been on advances in hardware, none of these advances have been possible without the development of quantum information theory.
