Ten years ago, I was in the early stages of the PhD programme in robotics at Carnegie Mellon University.The potential of these technologies was incredible, but up to that point, the focus had been overwhelmingly on applications in areas such as defence, space, manufacturing or pure research.Then, top autonomous driving research was funded almost exclusively by Darpa and other government agencies, and although large-scale autonomous cars have always been one of the dreams of robotics researchers, we would have all been shocked to see what is happening today: dozens of the biggest companies in the world led by a search-engine company , as well as highly funded startups, are collectively investing billions of dollars at the pursuit of the commercial autonomous car.Now there is a sense of inevitability to autonomous cars being a staple of our daily lives within a decade or sooner , with the only questions being the pace at which they will take over, and which of the companies chasing this prize will pull away from the pack.These developments in transportation are a great template for how robotics can disrupt even the most entrenched industries, and highlights a few themes that we will begin to see more frequently:• Incumbents will rarely be the ones that disrupt their own spaces.

In one hand they held traditional glasses of bubbly, but in the other were sheets of paper they had filled with their personal data.They wanted to know what would happen in a world where instead of vetting potential dates by their artfully posed selfies or carefully crafted dating-site profiles, we looked at data gathered by their computers and phones.As use of data-gathering devices increases, it s a world that s just round the corner.Elsden and his colleagues want to explore other ways we can use data that gets collected as we go about our modern lives.Can we give people more control over it, make it more ambiguous or playful?It asked for a host of specific numbers: shoe size, the farthest distance they had travelled from home, the earliest and latest times of day they had sent an email in the past month, their heart rate as they filled out the form.
Confirming earlier reports, the NY Times says that Google will introduce a voice-controlled digital assistant device for the home tomorrow at its developer conference in San Francisco.Part of Google s motivation here is that it sees a successful product that it believes it can improve upon and partly the move is defensive.The Alexa assistant relies on relatively structured voice commands and is often stumped by queries where it doesn t have available data or question phasing is confusing.While Amazon does have search technology A9 , it doesn t have Google s massive search index, Knowledge Graph, AI chops or its historical understanding of and ability to answer questions.Google s search assets and structured data could enable it to build a broader set of capabilities into Home.Virtual assistants offer the potential realization of the conversational search concept Google has been discussing and promoting for the past few years.

Researchers have developed a new solar powered battery, capable of changing its shape to fit various flexible forms.The team says the battery could transform the wearables market by lowering the space required for a battery, a big benefit for e-skin and e-clothes products.See Also: America trumps Europe in fitness wearables The components are electronically connected via flexible copper-polymer interconnects, mounted on a highly elastic silicone core, and enclosed within a silicone shell, the team said.The authors demonstrated the use of these systems for continual logging and wireless transmission of body temperature data in a variety of realistic scenarios, such as monitoring skin temperature during physical exercise and bathing, and measuring temperature changes during breathing.The battery may also be a welcome addition to the e-skin market, with researchers recently creating a much longer lasting tattoo that changes color and can even track things like UV rays and heart-rate.Wearables are still a young market, but with 67 percent growth from 2015 to 2016, more companies are starting to see the potential of devices able to gather more data on the customer.
Photo: Nora TamHong Kong companies and financial services institutions lag behind the US and Europe in cybersecurity measures as little emphasis is placed on security from a board-level perspective, according to industry experts.He said the banking sector in Hong Kong had lagged in their uptake of cloud technology adoption.Darren Argyle, chief information security officer of UK-based financial technology firm Markit, believes that Hong Kong banks and companies fall behind the US and Europe in beefing up cybersecurity even as the number of cyberattacks have been on the rise globally.He added that companies often view security as a cost of doing business, as cyber criminals increasingly target corporations in their attacks.CEOs of financial companies are now starting to ask what technology is in place which assures that they can respond adequately during a breach, he said.One way to mitigate the skills gap in Hong Kong is for the government to invest heavily in cybersecurity and related security start-ups, thereby encouraging more Hongkongers to pursue a career in security, he said.

Apple is increasing its focus on India after announcing plans to open its first developer center in the country.Apple said it will work to inspire and instruct developers on best practices, help them hone their skills and transform the design, quality and performance of their apps on the iOS platform.Building an ecosystem of top apps is one way that Apple can appeal to consumers who are in the market for a smartphone.The U.S. company has steadily put more attention on India in recent years, in part because India s smartphone market is showing signs of serious growth potential and also to offset some of the company s reliance on China for revenue.That s far behind China, where Apple currently enjoys around 22 percent of sales, according to data from Kantar.The company is seen by many as under pressure from the government — appeasing the state, which is cracking down on overseas tech firms, may be behind Apple s $1 billion investment in Chinese Uber rival Didi Chuxing — while the Chinese smartphone market s slowdown is a key reason Apple disappointed in its recent earnings.

Chinese mobile dating app Tantan has raised a $32 million USD series C funding from a group of investors, including LB Investment, Vision Capital 元璟资本 , and DST Global.The latter is headed by Russian billionaire Yuri Milner, whose investment portfolio includes big name tech companies, including Didi Chuxing, Xiaomi, Facebook, Snapchat, and Twitter.After this round of funding, we plan to continue focusing on user pain points, improving daily usage, and consolidating our position in the social application industry, a PR spokesperson from Tantan told TechNode.Well this looks familiar…The company claims to have 2.5 million active users, about 80% of which are part of China s post-90 s generation.According to Chinese media, the male-to-female ratio on Tantan s app is 6:4.Founded in 2014, the Chinese app is almost identical to Tinder, down to its UI which lets users swipe left and right for potential matches.In 2015, the Beijing-based company came under fire when multiple security risks in the app were revealed by Hong Kong-based entrepreneur, Larry Salibra.By reverse-engineering the Chinese app, Mr. Salibra discovered that sensitive user data, including passwords and telephone numbers, were not encrypted and vulnerable to hackers.
The company added that it will contact the affected members to reset their passwords too.According to a report on Vice s Motherboard, a hacker going by the name of Peace is attempting to sell account details, including the emails and partially hidden passwords, of 117 million LinkedIn users on the so-called Dark Web.LinkedIn is also quick to reassure its users that this isn t a fresh hack, though that will be of little comfort.Yesterday, we became aware of an additional set of data that had just been released that claims to be email and hashed password combinations of more than 100 million LinkedIn members from that same theft in 2012.We are taking immediate steps to invalidate the passwords of the accounts impacted, and we will contact those members to reset their passwords.It seems no company or industry is safe from the clutches of hackers, with the likes of Home Depot, Time Warner Cable, Ashley Madison, and SendGrid all suffering in recent times.Motherboard conversed with someone at LeakedSource who claimed that they managed to crack 90 percent of the LinkedIn passwords within three days.Though LinkedIn says it has hashed and salted its stored passwords for several years now, one potential problem of old passwords emerging online is that people often use the same credentials across many services.
This calculator from MarketWatch considers the potential return you d get by leasing and investing instead of buying.As MarketWatch explains, the argument against leasing often comes down to you ll have nothing to show for your money, and that argument doesn t consider the opportunity cost.You could potentially invest the purchase price of the car and earn a return on it instead.Of course, you can t predict the market return, and this implies you would actually invest the money instead of just spend it.So there are even more variables to think about.You enter your details, including the expected return, and the tool tells you at what price point leasing would outweigh buying.
Simply put, if it has an IP address, an identifier and internet connection then it is an IoT-enabled solution.Ashton has described the potential of the IoT saying that today's computers, and therefore the Internet, are almost wholly dependent on human beings for information."Nearly all of the roughly 50 petabytes a petabyte is 1,024 terabytes of data available on the Internet were first captured and created by human beings by typing, pressing a record button, taking a digital picture or scanning a bar code."He then says that the problem is the fact that people have limited time, attention and accuracy, "all of which means they are not very good at capturing data about things in the real world"."If we had computers that knew everything there was to know about things, using data they gathered without any help from us, we would be able to track and count everything and greatly reduce waste, loss and cost.The industrial IoT, the sort of IoT version for the industrial and manufacturing industries, is expected to add to the world's GDP something between $10tr to $15tr between today and 2035.
