The state of the car computer: Forget horsepower, we want megahertz! by https://is.gd/4jZ36Z

If I asked you “how many computing devices do you own?” your mind will probably first jump to your PCs and laptops at home, and then to your smartphones and tablets. The more tech savvy might include smartwatches, TVs, and video game systems. But there’s one computing device that not many people think about as a computing device: the car infotainment system.

Google, Not the Government, Is Building the Future by https://is.gd/1KozWh

One persistent criticism of Silicon Valley is that it no longer works on big, world-changing ideas. Every few months, a dumb start-up will make the news — most recently the one selling a $700 juicer — and folks outside the tech industry will begin singing I-told-you-sos.

But don’t be fooled by expensive juice. The idea that Silicon Valley no longer funds big things isn’t just wrong, but also obtuse and fairly dangerous.

Teaching Your Computer by https://is.gd/qzqfcY


As I have written in my last two articles (Machine Learning Everywhere and Preparing Data for Machine Learning), machine learning is influencing our lives in numerous ways.

Machine learning is everywhere, and although the theory and practice both can take some time to learn and internalize, the basics are fairly straightforward for people to learn.

The basic idea behind machine learning is that you build a model—a description of the ways the inputs and outputs are related. This model then allows you to ask the computer to analyze new data and to predict the outputs for new sets of inputs. This is essentially what machine learning is all about.

A Teenager Just Built The World’s Lightest Satellite – And NASA’s Launching It by https://is.gd/beA6TK

An Indian teenager has won an international competition to build a functioning satellite, and not only has he produced what is reportedly the world’s lightest satellite device – NASA has also agreed to launch it next month.

The tiny satellite weighs just 64 grams (0.14 lb), and will embark on a 4-hour sub-orbital mission launched from NASA’s Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia on June 21. Once positioned in microgravity, its main objective will be to test the durability of its extremely light, 3D-printed casing.

At last, Google discovers Raspberry Pi for real by https://is.gd/hR06sA


After microcontrollers and embedded programming for, ermm, the sake of programming, the next hot thing is: AI at DIY level.

With AIY Projects, Google claims, Makers can use artificial intelligence to make human-to-machine interaction more like human-to-human interactions. They promise to release a series of reference kits, starting with voice recognition.
