The fourth industrial age has been driven by a transformative digital revolution. Billions of people worldwide are now inter-connected. We have nearly unlimited access to knowledge, computer processing power, and cloud-based data storage….

Google today announced the alpha launch of AutoML Vision, a new service that helps developers — including those with no machine learning (ML) expertise — build custom image recognition models.

The basic idea here, Google says, is to allow virtually anybody to bring their images, upload them (and import their tags or create them in the app) and then have Google’s systems automatically create a customer machine learning model for them.

How To Use VeraCrypt On Linux by https://is.gd/HFNBWZ

For most, the best tool to use is VeraCrypt. The main reason that VeraCrypt stands out from the rest of the new encryption tools is that it is a “fork” from the old TrueCrypt code.
