Although it hasn’t given the formal word yet, it’s highly unlikely that IFA 2020 will take place in September as an in-person event, at least not in the capacity as all IFA events since 1924. That, unfortunately, means that companies that were planning on making a big splash in Berlin this year have to make do with their own separate … Continue reading

It’s official: CES 2021, the world’s biggest tech trade event, is going digital to protect everyone from the coronavirus. The Consumer Technology Association (CTA), which organizes the show, today announced the digital replacement. The event was originally supposed to run from January 6-9 in Las Vegas. Gary Shapiro, president of the CTA, revealed the digital event. He said that, while the company hoped to bring everyone together in Vegas again, “but given the current public health concerns, it’s just not possible to bring everyone safely together.” While I’ve never been myself, I’ve heard that CES requires having many, many people to pile… This story continues at The Next Web

Working with non-numerical data can be tough, even for experienced data scientists. A typical machine learning model expects its features to be numbers, not words, emails, website pages, lists, graphs, or probability distributions. To be useful, data has to be transformed into a vector space first. But how? One popular approach would be to treat a non-numerical feature as categorical. This could work well if the number of categories is small (for example, if data indicates a profession or a country). However, if we try to apply this method to emails, we will likely get as many categories as there… This story continues at The Next Web

Today only, Best Buy is discounting the 13.3-inch Dell Inspiron 7000 2-in-1 laptop. It usually costs $850, but you can get one for $600. This laptop won’t outperform options that cost considerably more, but it seems to be a well-rounded machine for those who don’t use intensive applications — especially at this price. It has a 1080p touchscreen that can rotate 360-degrees for tablet mode or watching movies in tent mode, and Intel’s Core i5-10210U processor powers the machine, with 8GB of RAM, and a fast 512GB PCIe SSD keeping it going. It even has a fingerprint reader for logging in securely. In terms of ports, it has a few USB Type-A ports, a USB-C port, headphone jack, a microSD card reader, and a power plug. Photo by...

A German court on Tuesday banned Tesla from repeating more of its Autopilot claims in advertising, which it said are misleading.  An industry group tasked with policing anti-competition laws originally brought the suit.  Tesla can appeal the decision. For years, CEO Elon Musk has made bold predictions — most of which haven't been met — about when Tesla vehicles will be truly self-driving. Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. FRANKFURT (Reuters) - Tesla Germany is banned from repeating misleading claims in advertising about the capabilities of its driver assistance systems, including that its vehicles were capable of autonomous driving, a judge in Munich said on Tuesday. Tesla can appeal the ruling. The court heard a case brought by Germany's Wettbewerbszentrale, an industry sponsored body tasked with policing anticompetitive practices. The Munich court agreed with the industry body's assessment and banned Tesla Germany from including "full potential for autonomous driving" and "Autopilot inclusive" in its advertising materials. It said such claims amounted to misleading business practices, adding that the average buyer might be given the impression that the car could drive without human intervention and might suggest such a system was now legal on German roads. Tesla's autopilot system has drawn criticism from regulators, including from the National Transportation Safety Board in the United States, saying it lacks safeguards. Concerns have grown about assistance systems that can perform driving tasks for extended stretches with little or no human intervention, tempting drivers to neglect their obligation to be in control of their vehicles at all times. Tesla has said it has informed customers that its automated driver assistance technology did not amount to a fully autonomous driving system. For years, CEO Elon Musk has made bold claims about when Tesla vehicles would become fully "self-driving." Most of those, like an autonomous road trip across the United States, have yet to happen. In July, he said Tesla was close to making its cars capable of automated driving without any need for driver input, so-called Level 5 autonomy. The company's Autopilot software has been blamed in a handful of wrecks where inattentive drivers lost control of their vehicles. The company also sells an $8,000 "full self-driving" package that it says will eventually allow for full autonomy.  In 2019, Musk said Tesla would work with local regulators in the European Union.  Same, except where limited by EU regulations. We’re aware of extreme consumer unhappiness about this & are working with EU regulators to address. — Elon Musk (@elonmusk) September 4, 2019 Tesla did not immediately respond to a request for comment. Join the conversation about this story » NOW WATCH: What it takes to be a PGA Tour caddie

Image: Google Where is Google’s Pixel 4A? Sitting right on the company’s online store, as it turns out. Google seems to have mistakenly published an image of the Pixel 4A on its Canadian store. The text says “Nest Wifi,” but uh... that’s no Nest Wifi. The phone has already leaked extensively over the last few months, but this is a marketing render direct from Google — and it suggests that the 4A might finally be coming sometime in the near future. Note also that the screen has a date of May 12th on it, which is pretty solid confirmation that Google did originally plan to launch the 4A during its annual developers conference before it was canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Nest Wifi, you say? I don’t think so. The 4A seen in... Continue reading…

TypeScript 4.0, a planned major upgrade to Microsoft’s popular typed superset of JavaScript, is now available as a beta release, with improvements for builds and editing scenarios as well as support for variadic tuple types.The beta was published on June 26. The production version is slated for release in August, according to the roadmap for the platform. [ Also on InfoWorld: What is Jamstack? The static website revolution upending web development ] As proposed, TypeScript 4.0 boosts speed in the build mode, with the caching of semantic diagnostics in the builder written to the disk with .tsbuildinfo, to benefit the next incremental build. This is intended to fix a situation in which compiling a program after a previous compile with errors under --incremental would be very slow when using the --noEmitOnError flag.To read this article in full, please click here

Uploadcare, a startup that aims to make using CDN platforms cheaper and easier for businesses, today announced that it has raised a $1.7 million seed round led by Runa Capital and Vendep Capital, with existing investors Vaizra Capital and LVL1 Group participating as well.Uploadcare promises to offer an end-to-end solution for businesses that automatically optimizes the files, images and videos of its clients and then delivers it over its CDN network or that of its partners.Uploadcare founder and CEO Igor Debatur told me that the idea for the service started quite a few years ago, while he was running a web development agency.Gathering files in different formats and sizes and then making those available in a way that was secure and easily scalable, often turned out to be a challenge — and one that others in the industry faced as well.In the early days, Uploadcare was basically a file uploader for developers.Over time, Uploadcare added backend features, including the smart CDN that can modify content on the fly based on the client where it’s displayed.

Schibsted-ägda sajten Bytbil.se var först med att rapportera om att bilbolaget befinner sig i akut kris.Enligt Bytbil var Skånebolagets problem kända för ledningen i mitten av oktober – då de började ta emot förhandsbeställningar av kunderna.Nu har det skånska bolaget bland annat upprättat en kontrollbalansräkning som visar att det egna kapitalet är minus 9,4 miljoner kronor, och bolagets revisor har hoppat av sitt uppdrag.Vi har tidigare varit sena med betalningar som ibland sker i startups.Att ta in kapital är en pågående process som vi har planerat för och som sker allt eftersom vi utvecklas och växer”, skriver Unitis marknadschef Robin Eriksson.Han vill inte närmare kommentera kontrollbalansräkningen som i regel innebär att bolagets kassa sinar rejält eller redan har tömts.

That task was to adapt Stephen King’s book, Doctor Sleep.Doctor Sleep is the sequel to King’s classic novel, The Shining, which Stanley Kubrick adapted into one of the best horror films ever, also called The Shining.Gizmodo: The press notes say you got Doctor Sleep after mentioning it in another meeting that wasn’t about Doctor Sleep.I think it’s about where you set the end of the film.” And I think it’s going to be, for whoever would try to do that, it would be one of the most daunting things they could ever attempt to do.And, there are these continuity issues you have to deal with between them – where Kubrick and King had made such different decisions that you have to decide huge questions, like is Dick Hallorann alive or dead.Did you send him a script, present it to him?
