          Stand Up Math   
Will do anything to get math interest from kids.

I have been asked if math and computing interest are really interchangeable?   Having been a professional in both spaces,  and I say, yes, and especially now more than ever.   Just keep making the case that this computing magic is all bound together in fairly simple logic.  The ability to pay attention to detail and follow process also helps, in both domains.

This is a preview of a research report from BI Intelligence, Business Insider's premium research service. To learn more about BI Intelligence, click here.

The modern smartphone is a remarkable device. A single device that fits in your pocket can do all the tasks that once required cameras, camcorders, GPS devices, watches, alarm clocks, calculators, and even TVs.    

But the next change might be the most radical of all—it could eliminate the need to carry cash and credit cards. 

The growing importance of the smartphone as the go-to computing device for every digital activity is having a profound effect everywhere you look, but it’s only the biggest story among many exciting developments in the world of payments:   

  • Apple Pay was first out of the gate, but now mobile wallets are everywhere you look—Android Pay, Google Pay, Chase Pay and even Walmart Pay are making smartphones a real alternative to carrying credit cards. And the potential for mobile wallets to limit a merchant’s fraud liability could help them really take off in acceptance for small businesses.   
  • As consumers move more purchasing online, gateway vendors that can act as a front-end processor for online businesses are seeing explosive growth.   PayPal-owned Braintree grew 111% YoY in the number of cards on file in Q4 2015, while Stripe and Klarna now have multi-billion dollar valuations.
  • Mobile Point-Of-Sale (mPOS) startups like Square and ShopKeep have pioneered a whole new payments niche—accepting payments via tablets and smartphones.   Coupling their transactions capabilities with new apps can revolutionize a small business’ inventory management, marketing, loyalty and even payroll.   
  • Mobile Peer-to-Peer payments in the U.S. are forecast to grow from $5.6 billion in 2014 to nearly $175 billion by 2019 as consumers increasingly skip the hassle of writing a check or going to an ATM.   But smartphone vendors like Apple could cripple the dominant player of 2016 (Venmo) if they make a serious push to own the space.   

If your job or your company is involved in payment processing in any way, you know how complex this industry is. And you know that you simply can’t understand where the next big digital opportunities are unless you know the key players and roles in each step of the payments “supply chain:”   

  • Acquirers
  • Processors
  • Issuers
  • Card Networks
  • Independent sales organizations and merchant service providers
  • Gateways
  • Hardware and software providers

Fortunately, managing analyst John Heggestuen and research analyst Evan Bakker of BI Intelligence, Business Insider's premium research service, have compiled a detailed report that breaks down everything you need to know—whether you’re a payments industry veteran or a newcomer who is still getting a basic knowledge of this complex world.

368896817

Among the big picture insights you’ll get from this new report, titled The Payments Ecosystem Report: Everything You Need to Know About The Next Era of Payment Processing:

  • The 5 key events of 2015 that have set up 2016 as a watershed year for the entire payments ecosystem. 
  • The basics of traditional card processing from the start of the process through to the very end.    
  • Why new players and innovations like prepaid cards, store cards, and PIN debit transactions are gaining market share and creating new opportunities.   
  • The effects—good and bad—of the transition to new mobile payment methods.   New players and old have surprising threats and opportunities in areas as varied as carrier billing, remittances, wearables, and more.   

This exclusive report takes you inside these big issues to explore:

  • The critical steps in credit card transactions and how they are changing.
  • The six major types of organizations involved in the payments ecosystem.
  • The significant differences for industry players who operate closed-loop networks and offer prepaid cards.
  • The challenges and opportunities facing hardware and software providers for the payments sector.   
  • The 8 reasons why mobile wallets are growing so fast and how they will disrupt all aspects of the mobile ecosystem.    
  • The exciting possibilities ahead in fast-growing payments subsectors like remittances, connected devices and mobile P2P payments.

NOW WATCH: Harvard Business School professor explains the most important problem we have in finance today and how to fix it


          How to move to Canada and become a Canadian citizen   

justin trudeau

July 1 is Canada Day, a federal holiday celebrating the unification of Canada's three colonies 150 years ago.

For many people, it may also be a reminder that Canada is a land where healthcare is free, people are friendly, and Prime Minister Justin Trudeau explains quantum computing just for laughs.

If all that has Canadian citizenship looking pretty tempting, you'll first need to go through several steps, like living in the country for at least six years, staying on your best behavior, and knowing a thing or two about the country you'll soon call home.

For those who actually want to head up north, here's how you move to Canada.

SEE ALSO: How to move to Sweden and live in the future

Preface: Make sure you're not already a Canadian citizen.

Before you go through the hassle of applying for citizenship, take a short quiz to see if you may already be Canadian.

The government outlines several caveats for being a citizen even if you weren't born there, many of which depend on your parents' citizenship. Maybe you secretly inherited their status at some point along the way.



Be at least 18 years old.

If you're not a legal adult, you've got an uphill climb ahead of you.

Minors need their parent or legal guardian to fill out the application for them; they need to be permanent residents in Canada (more on that later); and the parent must either be a citizen or applying to become one at the same time.



Or enter the pool for skilled immigrants.

Canada has a fast-track system for immigration called Express Entry. It's how skilled workers transition into a role in the country.

All applicants into Express Entry are given specific scores based on their specific talents and job prospects and then ranked with other applicants. Those at the top of the rankings are invited to become permanent residents.

          If Mobile is not the Future, then What is?   

During 2008, I have prophesied 13 things about Internet Marketing that came to pass in recent years. 8 years passed and I see many of them came true. e.g.

  • Google’s Search Preview (though it did not last long)
  • Instant search (or search-as-you-type)
  • Priority of social media over emails
  • The rise of Tablets (I called them Handhelds, back then)
  • The rise of widgets and connected data
  • Though some of them still have not taken full form, but they are prospectively waiting to be fulfilled:
  • The death of mobile operators
  • Web-based marketing analytics (Bigdata is now showing prospects into this prophecy)
  • TV Channel + Internet + Mobile Subscription coming into one single platform or service (you can find it in my comment)

​Though I am not a Prophet or clairvoyant, I have some predictions for mobile phone or mobility for 5-10 years ahead of 2016:

Mobile may seem like the future, but as the capacity of mobile devices grow, you might see a different scenario in future. Mobile is really not the future, but convergence of various devices, flexible screens and responsiveness of display, cloud computing and cloud OS, and supreme mobility are the actual future. 

When WAP was becoming popular, one friend told me, “This is the future”. But, WAP did not see much light after a few years. As the capacity of the devices increased, WAP was seem unnecessary. Now a days, many people are saying that “Mobile is the Future”. But, I oppose that, since mobile may not remain as THE mobile we know today.

If you look back into the evolution of the devices in your home, then you might see that Cassette Player, VCR, Camera, Radio, and even TV has now converged into one device. It’s really not about making the devices small. The most important factor here is to converge multiple devices into one to offer more utility.  

So, mobile is not the future, convergence is!

If we take this example of the past and apply it on the situations at present, then see that your laptop, mobile, tab, and TV are separate devices. If convergence is to happen, then these devices too will merge into one device or platform. But, how can you get the power and flexibility of a laptop in a mobile phone?  

The answer lies in your TV in the wall and its evolution. See how TV is getting thin day by day. As LCD is already in market, we might see foldable screens in very near future. Samsung and Oppo are competing to roll out foldable screen phones. However, these phones still do have steel backbone, but in future you might backbone-less Amoeba-ic phones (or lets call then Floppy Handhelds). It might be folded into a 6" inch and while spread, you might get 60" screen.  

Moreover, with Smart TVs, more and more people will start browsing the internet in their TVs. So, don’t think that the future relies on small screen, rather you may embrace the screen-size-you-like in future. Therefore, those who have not thought of making their site responsive for various screen size, they are leaving out the big picture.

So, mobile is not the future, flexibility (aka responsive) is!

Dropbox had made our file accessibility more flexible. There also, Google Drive, OneDrive, iCloud, and many others including cloud storage for images. With the help of these cloud storage, you can view your files in any device.  

But, one thing you could not make it remotely accessible like your files, is “The Operating System”. You still need to install operating systems in separate devices. But, in near future, you might not need to install any OS in any device. You can use any Open Source OS like Firefox OS and get access to files and OS Arrangement in any device. Or have the same look and feel as you change from one device to another. All you might need is a browser or window. And you also can save file in the cloud as much as you want.

So, mobile is not the future, cloud computing is! 

Now a days, we carry many devices like flash drive, pen drive, SD cards, etc. But in near future, you may not need to carry anything as long as you have internet access. Any device in public place can be turned into your phone, TV, and/or laptop. As mobility of information and OS gets introduced, you might not need to carry anything with you.

So, mobile is not the future, mobility is!

          China’s capital flight and US monetary policy   

China’s capital flight and US monetary policy

Yin-Wong Cheung, Sven Steinkamp, Frank Westermann 27 January 2016

In a largely closed capital market like China, illicit capital flows are inherently difficult to measure as no official data is recorded and the true volume is unobservable. However, standard proxies in the literature suggest that it is economically sizable, amounting to up to 2% of GDP in recent years. Figure 1 displays three common measures of capital flight. Although these proxies appear to follow different dynamics, they have in common that they are large and on the same order of magnitude when compared to official flows.

Figure 1. Capital flight and official flows

Data sources: National Bureau of Statistics of China, China State Administration of Foreign Exchange, Directions of Trade Statistics (IMF), International Financial Statistics (IMF), own calculations.

Measures of capital flight

The World Bank residual measure of capital flight is based on the balance of payments statistics. It compares the sources to the uses of funds – that is, it takes net foreign investment and the change in foreign debt and deducts from it the current account balance as well as the change in reserves. The remainder is a series that has widely been used as a proxy of capital flight in the literature, an unexplained component in the balance of payments.

The trade mis-invoicing measure is based on the fact that different statistical agencies record the same export/import activities, but often report different numbers. For instance, an export out of China worth $1,000 may enter the US statistics with a value of $1,000, but enter the Chinese statistics with a value of only $500. When abstracting from transportation costs this ‘under-invoicing’ of exports may be a sign of capital flight, as the remaining $500 is placed in a US bank account rather than being sent to China.

A new pattern

An interesting new pattern is the decline of total illicit flows in recent years. In particular, capital flight as measured by trade mis-invoicing has declined since the beginning of the Crisis in 2007/8. In a new paper, we explain this new finding and interpret the results in the context of China’s trend towards a gradual liberalisation of its capital account (Cheung et al. 2016).

Earlier empirical studies have shown that illicit flows, just like official flows, respond to interest differentials between countries. As capital controls exist, covered interest differentials can occur and attract portfolio rebalancing by investors on both sides. The covered interest differential has been documented to be a relevant empirical factor explaining China’s capital flight. In our extensive empirical analysis, we show that this empirical link has remarkably diminished in recent years. Using an interaction dummy variable, we show that the post-2007 response to the covered interest differential has been significantly smaller – and is hardly different from zero.

The impact of US monetary policy and other factors

A new factor that started to play a role in the post-2007 period is the relative money supply between China and the US. While China’s money supply has been rapidly increasing for many years, the US has been following an expansionary monetary policy only since the onset of the Global Crisis. Empirically, we find that this change in the relative monetary stance of the two countries has had an impact on investors’ decisions to reallocate their portfolio between the two countries. The US expansion has significantly reduced capital flight out of China, in both the trade mis-invoicing as well as a combined measure of capital flight.

This empirical result helps to explain the reduced impact of covered interest differentials. The fit of the regression, measured for instance by the adjusted R2, improves when relative money supply and a dummy variable for the post-2007 period are added to the regression. This finding is also robust when controlling for other factors in a multivariate regression setup, including relative growth rates, exchange rate regimes dummy variables, and so on.

Another new factor that becomes increasingly important is China’s gradual process of capital account liberalisation. Using the new index of capital controls by Chen and Qian (2015), we control for this process. We find that it also starts being significant in the post-2007 period. Investors appear to appreciate China’s new policies by investing their financial resources domestically. Nevertheless, we also find that the ex post realised exchange rate volatility is a negative factor for capital flight (i.e. an increase in intra-day volatility of the renminbi has a significant positive impact on capital flight out of China).

A caveat: Transportation cost and insurance

In the absence of official data, all measures of capital flight are proxies and must be interpreted with caution in general. This is particularly the case for the trade mis-invoicing measure, as exports are commonly reported without transportation cost and insurance while data on imports include these items. The IMF and other researchers typically assume a constant 10% of the net trade value for transportation and insurance when computing trade mis-invoicing proxies.

But certainly trade costs can vary both across countries and over time. The statistical significance of tariff revenues in our regressions suggests that this is indeed a potential shortcoming of the analysis. To address this issue, we construct a modified version of the trade mis-invoicing measure that uses country-specific and time-varying trade cost estimates that were computed by the CEPII institute from a standard trade-gravity equation. The main results in the empirical analysis are unaffected by this change.

Economic and policy implications

Our empirical results highlight the challenges of managing China’s capital flight. First, different measures of capital flight seem to have different empirical determinants. Second, these determinants have been changing over time. From the Chinese perspective, it is thus important to take a disaggregated analysis into account when designing further steps of financial opening.

Our regression analysis extends only to the end of 2014 and does not include the events of the past year. Our findings imply, however, that the increased volatility in the summer of 2015 and in particular the recent raise in US interest rates, which were associated with expectations of a more general reversal of US monetary policy, may be the cause of a resurgence in capital flight. This reversal has already been visible in the World Bank residual measure, as well as the combined measure, in the first three quarters of 2015.

          The ECB and the Fed: A comparative narrative   

The ECB and the Fed: A comparative narrative

Dae Woong Kang, Nick Ligthart, Ashoka Mody 19 January 2016

Although the Great Recession was viewed – especially in Europe – as mainly a US problem, the Eurozone has been implicated from the start and felt virtually the same impact in the early stages (Figure 1). The US economy, however recovered much faster. US stock prices and GDP regained their pre-crisis levels by late-2011; the Eurozone barely reached that stage in 2015.

Figure 1. Stock and GDP price movements

The US policy response was much more proactive (de Grauwe 2010). Fiscal stimulus was greater than in the Eurozone in 2008-9; the US also returned to fiscal austerity later, in 2011 rather than in 2010 as the Eurozone did (Mody 2015). More important was the US authorities’ active resolution of banking stress; Eurozone banking problems were allowed to fester. And throughout, US monetary policy was much more aggressive. In a recent paper, we used a narrative approach to identify the role of monetary policy during the Great Recession (Kang et al. 2015).

The US Federal Reserve lowered its policy interest rate (the Fed Funds rate) from 5.25% in September 2007 to 0-0.25% in December 2008 (Figure 2).1 At that point, the Fed also initiated quantitative easing and began ‘forward guidance’, making public its intention to keep interest rates low ‘for some time’. The ECB’s first reaction to the Great Recession was in July 2008, and it was to raise the policy rate (the main refinancing rate).2 After the Lehman bankruptcy in September 2008, the ECB joined an internationally coordinated rate reduction on 8 October. But then the ECB’s slow pace of rate cuts was interrupted by two more hikes—in April and July 2011. The policy rate was brought to near-zero only in November 2013; modest quantitative easing began in September 2014 and was expanded in January 2015.

Figure 2. Policy rates: The US Federal Reserve and the ECB

Our narrative tracks the stated policy intent, the stock market response following the announcement, and the immediate market commentary. To examine the stock market’s response to the announcement of interest rate cuts, we used an event-study methodology similar to that of Ait-Sahalia et al. (2012). First, the ‘abnormal difference’ was computed for each day following the announcement. This is measured as the change in the stock price minus the average daily change over the 20 days before the announcement (the presumption is that absent the announcement, stock prices would have continued to change at the same pace over the next five days). Adding up the daily abnormal differences, the cumulative abnormal difference shows the post-announcement divergence in the stock price movement from the trend in the preceding 20 days. The results are summarised in Figure 3.

Figure 3. Stock market reactions to the reduction of interest rates

Note: In computing the average ‘abnormal’ reaction between 2007 and 2009, we do not include the market reaction on 8 October 2008 because of high volatility in the days following. The results remain unchanged.

The stock market responded positively to the Fed’s rate cuts. In contrast, the market’s reaction to the slower-moving ECB was, on average, negative between 2007 and 2009 and also between 2011 and 2014. Consistent with our findings around the announcements, US stock indices moved ahead of those in the Eurozone, as seen in Figure 1. Moreover, as Figure 1 also shows, stock prices tracked relative differences in GDP performance, in line with Akerlof and Shiller’s (2009) view that improved investor sentiment helps stem the fall and begin the recovery.

Active stimulus

The anticipation of the announcements was not the primary influence on stock prices. In the US, the one unexpected announcement did trigger a strong response; but even the anticipated rate cuts were viewed favourably, especially if they were 50 basis points (0.5%) or larger. Researchers at the Chicago Fed find that anticipated policy actions have positive stimulative effects if they signal deviation from historical policy (D’Amico and King 2015, pp. 2-3). Thus, while formal ‘forward guidance’ came only on 16 December 2008, the actions up until then established a presumption that the Fed was pursuing a risk management approach and creating a safety net.3 Specifically, the larger rate cuts and accompanying statements signalled that the Fed was trying to ‘forestall’ financial turmoil from spiralling out of control.

In contrast, even the ECB’s larger rate cuts were seen as ‘too little, too late’. The ECB was reacting to news—building its shelter amidst a raging storm. ECB statements also mused endlessly about rising inflation and hence almost never promised more forthcoming action. The Bank of England was also late, but made up with quicker and much larger rate cuts, followed by quantitative easing.

It is true that the Fed has a clear dual mandate to support employment and maintain price stability. However, the central banks’ differing mandates were not the reason why they acted differently in the Great Recession. The ECB—despite its primary focus on price stability—had previously responded as if it had a dual mandate. Indeed, as Lars Svensson has pointed out, the ECB’s goal of medium-term price stability (over a two-year horizon) implied that it would not seek to bring inflation down instantly since attempting to do so would cause an unreasonable drop in output (Svensson 1999, pp. 83, 96, and 107). The result, Svensson argues, is that the ECB’s stated objective is indistinguishable from that of central banks with dual mandates, as studies have confirmed (Taylor 2010 and Nechio 2011).

Rather, as Alan Blinder pithily states, the Fed operated during the Great Recession on the ‘dark’ view that a huge loss of wealth could tip the economy into a free fall (Blinder 2013, p. 94). The priority was to prevent or manage that risk. Between 2007 and 2009, the Fed made the judgement that inflation risk was low and the main task was to prevent a downward output spiral. Later, the Fed used the same risk management approach to fend off the risk of price deflation.

By contrast, the ECB concluded that a temporary scare had caused banks to hoard cash and restrict lending to other banks (Blinder 2013, p. 94, Stark 2008). Thus, the ECB provided ample liquidity to banks, although no more so than the Fed. As the Fed understood, such passive provision of funds to banks was insufficient to induce banks to lend more and stimulate economic growth (Hetzel 2012). The loss of confidence and severe demand contraction required active monetary stimulus. The ECB insisted that foreign demand would ‘support ongoing growth’ in the Eurozone (e.g. Trichet and Papademos 2008).

The essential difference between the Fed and the ECB, therefore, boiled down to how each institution viewed the evolution of the economy. Even though inflation rates in the US and the Eurozone were nearly identical (Figure 4), the ECB overemphasised the risk of a commodity price-wage spiral and underestimated the financial and economic risks (Hetzel 2014). Market commentary repeatedly sent this message, as we document in our paper.

Figure 4. Headline inflation and core inflation for the US and Eurozone

Note: 12-month moving average of year-on-year inflation.

Forestalling deflation

The Fed transitioned to worrying about deflation risk as early as June 2010, even though inflation was rising in tandem with the European inflation rate (Figure 4) (Federal Reserve System 2010). The Fed’s main tools now were quantitative easing and forward guidance. As is well known, in this inglorious interlude, the ECB twice raised interest rates. But even past that point, the ECB continued to reject a risk-management approach and followed rather than anticipated the deceleration in inflation. Because it had delayed stimulus during 2007-9, the ECB needed more aggressive action rather than a continued wait-and-see approach. At a November 2013 press conference, a journalist described the ECB as a “pea-shooter dealing with an approaching deflationary tank”. ECB President Mario Draghi responded that the ECB was waiting for more data, and would do more “if needed” (Draghi 2013). Thus, the ECB acted asymmetrically: rising commodity prices were expected to feed persistent inflation, but falling commodity prices were expected to reverse course. Once again, markets and analysts reacted impatiently. Interest rate cuts were not enough. The question was why more aggressive ‘non-standard’ actions were not being taken.

Policy credibility

We conclude also that the Fed gained credibility even though it appeared to temporarily suspend its commitment to price stability. Bordo and Kydland (1995) have argued that setting aside a policy rule to deal with extraordinary contingency is consistent with a commitment to long-term goals. The Fed made clear its objective of preventing a meltdown and, as Blinder (2012) has emphasised, credibility principally requires that words be matched with deeds.

In the Eurozone, words were often a substitute for deeds. Markets and investors reacted to the tight monetary policy, which added to the economic drag and deflationary tendencies due to fiscal austerity and lingering banking problems. By mid-2009, Eurozone output had fallen behind that of the US, and it never caught up. Delays in stimulating economic recovery have permanent consequences, as recent analysis reaffirms (Fatas and Summers 2015). For all its rear-guard action, the ECB misread the Crisis and will be associated with the legacy of a weak recovery and more entrenched deflationary tendencies. If, as is entirely possible, the Eurozone’s core inflation rate remains below 1% a year, the ECB’s credibility will be twice hurt. Not only would it have failed to provide stimulus when needed, but it would have allowed the EZ to slip into a low inflation trap, well below its stated target of 2% a year.

1 The US Federal Funds rate determines the rate at which banks lend to each other.

2 The Eurozone’s main refinancing rate is the interest rate banks pay to borrow from the ECB. Normally, this rate also determines the euro overnight index average (EONIA), the rate at which banks lend to each other in the ‘unsecured’ market. But banks relied principally on the ECB for their funding through much of the Crisis; the limited lending in the banks’ unsecured market was a substitute to depositing money at the ECB (ECB 2010 and 2015b).

          When God is your realtor...   
Since the 5th of April our lives have been a total blur...sometimes I still have a hard time computing everything that has gone on and even more so fully realizing how very blessed we have been...how did we ever get to this place where we are and what are we supposed to be doing now? But maybe I'm getting ahead of myself....



It all started like any other fairly normal day. Hubby just happened to be off that day and we ended up having to take our husky in to the vets for a limp in her leg that had just started in the middle of the night. We got the blow that she was going to need knee surgery ($$$) and had come home to call and tell my mom about it. We were still talking to her on the house phone when I got a call on my cell phone from the property manager of our house. I excused myself from my mom for a minute and took the call that would end up changing life as we knew it.... He said it so fast and so matter of fact that I didn't even comprehend what he was saying... the owners of our house were coming back to the states and were moving back into their house by June 1st!! WHAT?! THEIR house? WHAT house?! THIS house?! After a split second, the news set in and I instantly started to cry... that poor man on the other end of the phone! lol He said that he was trying to give us as much notice as he could, which was nice considering we thought we had another 2-3 years in this house!  I quickly hung up with him and got back on the phone with my hubby and mom but I'm afraid I gave them both quite the scare as I know I was having trouble taking a deep breath and pretty much just fell to the floor in a pile of tears while I tried to explain to them what was going on! lol Looking back, I feel pretty silly for reacting that way but at the time I felt like the sky was falling and there was no solid ground around us...

After the shock of it set in, and the tears started to dry up (and I'm talking about a matter of maybe 20 minutes) we were out the door and in town looking at rentals. This all happened about 2 pm and by 5 we'd looked at about 3 houses! We literally hit the ground running!! :)

I can remember feeling the panic, the fear of what was going to happen to us, to our girls, to our animals (2 dogs, 3 cats, 20+ chickens and 40 more in the incubator!!) and just thinking that there was no way we were going to find a place that would allow our crazy family to live the country life that we were so blessed to have. I just knew we were going to have to settle and would end up losing what we've been working so hard to build up.



We had just put in 4 raised beds (two of which were planted) and had a DUMP TRUCK load of wood chips delivered to the house TWO days before!!! lol
I had images of us having to live in our travel trailer again on some empty plot of land... or worse.... live in town! :)  That night, we were just numb. I know we watched a movie but I can't for the life of me remember what it was... I just sat all night looking at house listings and combing Craigslist for a rental that we could live with. I found I think three that we were going to call on in the morning, one of which seemed WAY too good to be true for the price but only time would tell.




My husband woke up before me, and was ready to get started again on the great house hunt 2013 so he looked up the address for the to good to be true house and decided to do a drive by before we bothered to even call. He was back to the house shortly after 8am and I was only able to hold him off till 8:45 before he called about it. The man on the other end of the phone said we could come by at 10 and I don't think I've even taken so fast of a shower and we were ready to go!!

You may be wondering about my title for this entry... But when God is your realtor there is no question about where you are supposed to be!! 20 hours from the time we got the call till the time we saw our new home... that could only be God! God is SO GOOD!!



This house was made for us... it was started in 1921, and later added on to in 1979. The setting is this amazing view, and more trees than a person could ever count.

 

 He thought of every possibly thing to make this location perfect for us...


right down to the blue berry bush in the garden, the grape vines out back and the fenced in garden with raised beds in place...



the entire property is surround by blackberries and the view... the view will take your breath away...
 
So many people just shake their heads when we tell them this story and they ask how we could find such a treasure at all, let alone in less than a day? I've had friends that reacted with unkind words about the owners of our previous house, and I have to just tell them, that it was God... no matter how much I thought I loved our old house, I could have never imagined how wonderful this one could be or what a total blessing this change could be....
 
 
Before we left to see our would be new house, on that fateful morning... my husband and I stood holding hands in what was soon to be our old kitchen and prayed... we prayed that if this house was the right house for us in God's plan that we would see that and not just jump on it thinking that it was in OUR plan... there was not a moment of that day that God didn't have a hand in  and I am so completely grateful and humbled by his love for us...
 
Matthew 6:31-33
So don't worry about these things, saying, 'What will we eat? What will we drink? What will we wear?' These things dominate the thoughts of unbelievers, but your heavenly Father already knows all your needs. Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need. (NLT)

          Want to be a time traveler?   
Time travel has often been the theme of science fiction stories. Even if you are not a fan of films such as "Back to the Future" and "Doctor Who," it is interesting to spare a moment to consider how much of yesterday's sci-fi is now reality in the form of today's communications, transportation, and defense systems. Much of it enabled by embedded computing technology such as VME and VPX.

          Going Reactive: Event-Driven, Scalable & Resilient Systems   

Learn how to building modern, scalable, reactive and resilient applications, ready for the real-time web.

The skills of building Event-Driven, Highly Concurrent, Scalable & Resilient Systems are becoming increasingly important in our new world of Cloud Computing, multi-core processors, Big Data and Real-Time Web.

Unfortunately, many people are still doing it wrong; using the wrong

tools, techniques, habits and ideas. In this talk we will look at what

it means to 'Go Reactive' and discuss some of the most common (and some not so common but superior) practices; what works - what doesn't work - and why.

          Immutability Changes Everything - Pat Helland, RICON2012   

For a number of decades, I've been saying "Computing Is Like Hubble's Universe, Everything Is Getting Farther Away from Everything Else". It used to be that everything you cared about ran on a single database and the transaction system presented you the abstraction of a singularity; your transaction happened at a single point in space (the database) and a single point in time (it looked like it was before or after all other transactions).

Now, we see a more complicated world. Across the Internet, we put up HTML documents or send SOAP calls and these are not in a transaction. Within a cluster, we typically write files in a file system and then read them later in a big map-reduce job that sucks up read-only files, crunches, and writes files as output. Even inside the emerging many-core systems, we see high-performance computation on shared memory but increasing cost to using semaphores. Indeed, it is clear that "Shared Memory Works Great as Long as You Don't Actually SHARE Memory".

There are emerging solutions which are based on immutable data. It seems we need to look back to our grandparents and how they managed distributed work in the days before telephones. We realize that "Accountants Don't Use Erasers" but rather accumulate immutable knowledge and then offer interpretations of their understanding based on the limited knowledge presented to them. This talk will explore a number of the ways in which our new distributed systems leverage write-once and read-many immutable data..

          A Mathematical Approach to HR?! : Promoting Responsible Use of Numbers in People Management   
"If we must apply a Mathematical approach to HR, let us go beyond Arithmetic. Human Resource Management is more like a differential equation that can have multiple solutions!” I heard myself telling the Senior HR Leader. This was my fourth ‘encounter’ with this gentleman (See 'Passion for work and anasakti ‘, 'Appropriate metaphors for organizational commitment ‘ and ‘To name or not to name, that is the question’ for the outcomes of my previous interactions with him). This time, we were discussing the point of view that HR can get the elusive ‘seat at the table’ by being more data-driven, quantitative, objective and mathematical in its approach. Similar to what had happened during my previous encounters with him, this interaction also prompted me to think a bit more deeply about the underlying issues.

Mathematics and logic are immensely useful tools. The five and a half years of engineering education that I have received, my pre-MBA job as an Aerospace Engineer, the Social Research Methods related studies during my MBA and the initial years of my HR career spent in Compensation Consulting & Research Based HR Products  have made me very comfortable with quantitative and mathematical approaches to diagnosis and solution design.  Having practiced Six Sigma, I have experience in the process improvement approach of converting a physical problem into a mathematical problem, finding a mathematical solution and converting the mathematical solution into a physical solution.  I have also used quite a bit of statistics especially during the best practice & benchmarking studies during my five years in HR consulting. However, there was still something that was bothering me regarding my conversation with the Senior HR Leader.

Once I stayed with that feeling of discomfort for a while, things began to crystallize in my mind. The first thing that came to mind was an incident that happened a few years ago when my son was about 5 years old. I had bought him his first calculator and he was very excited.  For the next couple of days he was chasing me saying that “Tell me all your problems; I can solve them”.  It was an interesting task to convince him that most of the problems can’t be expressed in numerical terms and that even those problems that can be expressed in numerical terms can’t always be solved using the functions available in the calculator! When I thought about the matter a bit more, many other aspects came tumbling out:
  • Perfect Logic coupled with Questionable Assumptions : Logic is a great tool for reasoning. The problem is just that any system of logic is only as good as its assumptions. Great logical reasoning skills with wrong assumptions will just lead to a wrong inference faster. While this would hold good for any field, the risk is higher in HR, as the domain has quite a few unsubstantiated assumptions. Yes, over the last couple of decades a significant amount of research has been done in the Human Resources Management (HRM) domain. But the very nature of the domain imposes severe limitations on validating the assumptions underlying  HR related decision-making (See  ‘Research and a three-year old’ and ‘Truths stretched too far’ for a more detailed discussion)
  • Lost in conversion : When we look at applying the Six Sigma approach mentioned above (physical problem - mathematical problem - mathematical solution - physical solution) to HR, the difficulty is in ensuring that while converting the physical problem to mathematical problem the essence of the matter is not lost. Otherwise we might end up solving the quantifiable but peripheral aspects of the problem while the core of the problem (which is difficult to quantify) goes unattended. We must remember that many of the things that really count can’t be counted!
  • Misuse of Mathematical Induction: This occurs when one tries to apply a purely mathematical type of reasoning to a human process where it doesn't apply. I came across an excellent example of this in a HR Shared Service Centre (HRSSC). The Head of this HRSSC was a firm believer of setting 100% accuracy (zero error) as the performance target. His strategy for making this happen included a motivational talk to the employees with the following line of reasoning: "Can't you do one transaction without error? If you can do that what prevents you from repeating the same 12,000 times? This is all that is needed to make an 'error-free' year and meet your performance target”.  While the above approach seemed to be perfectly logical it was completely unrealistic from a performance management point of view. The transactions involved a large amount of manual intervention making it highly error prone. The ‘zero-error target' ended up de-motivating the employees (instead of motivating them) as they were highly unlikely to achieve it. This brings to mind a Zen Proverb - "Water that is too pure has no fish"!
  • Chasing the numbers: A related problem, that comes up especially when we try to quantify (because quantification is required for further processing) things that are difficult to quantify is that of making simplistic or overly optimistic assumptions to enable quantification and even to get the numbers that we want to get. For example, when we try to calculate the time required for doing a particular non-mechanical task (as the first step in estimating the required staffing levels), we often don’t take into account ‘invisible work’.  The invisible work arises from factors like complexity of the situation (that can’t be quantified easily) and the difference between ‘the process map’ and ‘the way things actually get done’. While in the case of the latter, it can be argued that the solution is to fix the process, it might be difficult in a situation when complex interfacing/influencing is required to do the task or in a situation where fixing the process is difficult at the level of the jobholder (as it involves fixing the ‘ecosystem’ around the process in addition to the process). Emerson was not too far off the mark when he said "The results of life are uncalculated and uncalculable. The years teach much which days never know"!
  • Banning complexity and complex motivations : Another problem comes out of a definition of rationality (a mental model) that is too narrow. As Mencken says, "to every complex problem there is an answer that is clear, simple and wrong"! In many areas related to people management, there are deep psychological factors operating that render purely ‘logical’ approaches ineffective.  See ‘Performance ratings and the above average effect’ for an example.  Similarly, when we consider only the (visible) employment contract and ignore the (invisible) psychological contract another set of problems arise (See the series on ‘Salary negotiations and psychological contract’ for more details). Another example could be viewing the interactions with the labour unions (say in the context of arriving at a Long Term Settlement) as a purely economic negotiation exercise. The reality here is that a union is a political entity with a constituency to satisfy. Hence, even if the management offers a ‘competitive deal’ (by industry standards), the union leaders might have (internal) compulsions not to accept it and resort to various pressure tactics (including demonstrations and stoppage of work) - just to convince their constituency (members) that they have done all they can to force the management to offer a better deal (or the best possible deal). 
  • House built on sand : We also have the interesting problem of processing/computing data without paying adequate attention to the ‘level of measurement’ that generated the data.  Typical problems involve taking ‘ordinal’ or ‘interval’ data and apply computing methods that are valid only for ‘ratio’ level data. This could be more of a problem in HR, since many of the HR professionals are not well-versed in quantitative methods. The numbers can give us a false sense of surety and doing Arithmetic operations with those numbers to derive inferences can give us a false sense of confidence on the decisions based on those inferences.  There is a huge difference between being able to calculate something and being able to understand it. If our objective is to influence that 'something', being able to calculate it without being able to understand it can create more harm than good. It often becomes very difficult to convince HR leaders who are ‘too sure of their numbers and calculations’ that HR process maturity takes time or even that ‘It takes 9 months to make a baby regardless of how many couples you put on the job’. This becomes very pertinent especially in those situations where a business leader or the CFO (without any HR background) has been moved into the HR Head role! This brings us to a more fundamental issue. The over-reliance on numbers sometimes indicates a (stated or unstated)  shift in the underlying paradigm for people management in the organization- from a relational paradigm to a transactional one. This is something that we must watch out for (See 'Towards a Philosophy of HR' for more details).   
  • Wishing away the paradoxes and dilemmas : People Management, by its very nature, is a field that is full of paradoxes.  A paradox occurs when there are multiple perspectives/opinions (doxa) that exist alongside (para)- each of which is true - but they appear to contradict/to be in conflict with one another. A paradox can’t be resolved in the same way a problem can be solved. To effectively deal with a paradox, we must wrestle with it till we reach a level of understanding (or wisdom) that enables us to see the paradox in a new light and arrive at the most appropriate solution in that particular context. Often, there are multiple solutions -making HR more like a differential equation (that has multiple solutions) and not like Arithmetic (where there is one right answer)! It can also be argued that dealing with some of the issues HR is even more complex than dealing with differential equations because in some of those paradoxical situations, the choosing from multiple ‘correct’ solutions is a matter of Aesthetics and not Logic! One can develop a keen sense of this 'Aesthetics' only through years of struggle with the paradoxes and dilemmas  in HR(See 'Truth and Beauty : Elegance and Motivations in HR' for more details)

So where does this leave us?  To me, best approach is that of ‘triangulation’, that combines qualitative methods with quantitative methods to develop a more comprehensive understanding of the reality. We should make an effort to figure out if the particular HR issue that we are dealing with is more like a ‘problem’ or more like a ‘paradox’ and deal with it accordingly (See ‘Making problems disappear’ for details). Data and analysis are very useful. But they are not substitutes for understanding and wisdom. Even when it comes to the matter of strategy making, it has been argued that the core strategy making process is essentially intuitive, with data & analysis being useful as an input/trigger for strategy making and also as tool for doing a reality check on the strategy created.  The same holds in the case of HR strategy also! We must also remember that in the physical world (outside Mathematics) there are 'singularities' where 'normal rules/algorithms' no longer work!

Similarly, benchmarking is definitely a very useful tool. But benchmarking should be done with the context also included (and not just the numbers).  For example, benchmarking a ratio like the ‘ratio of the total number of employees to the number of employees in HR’  can be misleading without the understanding of context specific factors like the mandate/deliverables of the HR function, the HR operating model, the degree of outsourcing, the degree of automation (degree of Employee and Manager Self-Service), profile of the workforce etc. Casual benchmarking, like casual sex, is easy but dangerous!  We must also ensure that HR processes and practices follow from the HR Philosophy of the company and not the other way around (a common problem that arises from the obsession with 'best practice benchmarking'). Yes, we must leverage numbers and the power of numbers in HR. However, let’s use them responsibly - by ensuring that the numbers and the calculations accurately reflect the underlying reality!

Any thoughts/ideas on promoting more responsible use of numbers in people management?

          Computing With Logic Logic Programming With Prolog   

Computing With Logic Logic Programming With Prolog

Computing With Logic: Logic Programming With Prolog by David Maier, David S. Warren
1988 | ISBN: 0805366814 | 535 pages | DJVU | 3,7 MB
A critical property of a programming language is its level of abstraction. We want to program in a more declarative style-saying what a program should compute, rather than how to compute it. In logic programming we define properties and relationships for the objects of interest, and the system determines how to compute with those objects. In this paradigm programming becomes setting up constraints with knowns and unknowns. The system solves for the unknowns, analogously to solving linear equations or to a spreadsheet filling in values of empty cells. There are some key differences, though, between the latter examples and the kind of constraints solving in logic programming.

          Install Multiple Desktop Environments in Ubuntu   
As I was testing different distributions I was really blown away at the variety and quality of the different desktop environments. I was incredibly impressed by how robust and powerful some were, such as KDE, and how functional and sleek others were, like Cinnamon. While I did eventually decide to settle on Ubuntu because of their massive user base and application support (Steam, Lightworks, etc.), it was not an easy decision to make, mostly because of how much I had enjoyed many of these desktop experiences. I could really see how certain desktops would be perfect for certain tasks, and finding one that was good for all tasks was almost impossible, at least for my multifaceted workflow that is. Wouldn’t it be great if you could use Ubuntu as a base and choose which desktop environment happens to suit your current needs. Well, as it turns out, you can and it’s actually incredibly simple to do. I want to give a quick run through of how I setup my Ubuntu 12.10 system to allow me to choose between my favorite desktop environments at login.

Unity

This one comes standard with a new install of Ubuntu 12.10 and while it gets a lot of mixed reviews, I actually really like it. It’s a great interface for when I’m working with web applications. With web app support for google docs, reddit, google+ and many more, I find myself using Unity when I’m in a browsing mood. No special steps required to get this one rolling.

LXDE

This is a super lightweight, low profile desktop environment. It loads up insanely fast and takes very little system resources to run. Although I wouldn’t say it’s exactly beautiful to look at, when I need to get some real computing done, thats the last thing I care about. I have been playing with Blender over the past couple of weeks and I could definitely see the benefit of this option when building and rendering complex scenes. To get this desktop simply open the terminal and enter the following:

  • sudo apt-get install lxde

KDE

I’m still discovering all the awesomeness that is kde. I love the idea of activities and could see this being incredibly helpful. I also found it really useful for setting up application menu entries, which I discovered totally by accident. I had downloaded the latest blender release from blender.org (not from the ubuntu software centre) and extracted the files to a folder in my home directory called “Blender”. Although I could start the application by double clicking the blender executable file, I wasn’t able to see it in my application lens. Not the end of the world, but something I wanted to eventually rectify. After installing kde and booting it up, I dragged that same blender executable file to the main panel, right clicked it and chose "icon settings". After clicking on the icon within the next window I was able to browse to the svg file that blender provides in the package and the icon was applied to the file. Interestingly, when I had switched back to unity, blender now shows up with it’s beautiful vector icon in my application lens. I would encourage everyone to at least try kde, it’s a bit of a bigger download (around 300MB) so if you are really low on storage keep that in mind. To install it just open the terminal and enter:

  • sudo apt-get install kde-plasma-desktop

Cinnamon

I was really impressed by this desktop. I was immediately comfortable moving around its workspace, and everything just felt good. I think this desktop is a great option for those switching from windows as its layout will feel pleasantly familiar. It’s simple yet elegant and puts the focus on the applications you are running. To get this desktop up and running, just open the terminal and enter the following:

  • sudo add-apt-repository ppa:gwendal-lebihan-dev/cinnamon-stable
  • sudo apt-get update
  • sudo apt-get install cinnamon

Chrome OS

I had been curios about google’s chrome operating system for a while, so when I saw that it was possible to install it on Ubuntu I just had to give it a shot. I think it only works on a 64 bit system, so make sure that’s what you’re running. Open the terminal and enter the following:

  • wget https://github.com/downloads/dz0ny/lightdm-login-chromeos/lightdm-login-chromiumos_1.0_amd64.deb
  • sudo dpkg -i lightdm-login-chromiumos_1.0_amd64.deb

Cleaning Up the Login Screen

So now that we have a variety of desktops installed, it’s time to try them out. Just log out of your session to get back to the login screen. From here click on the little Ubuntu logo to see all your options. You will probably notice that there is a bunch of desktops that got added that you may not need or want as it can start to get a little cluttered, not to mention unusable if you are on a low resolution monitor. For example, after installing cinnamon, I noticed there were two versions available in the list; Cinnamon and Cinnamon 2D. After using Cinnamon, and seeing that it loaded and worked great, I wanted to remove Cinnamon 2D from the list (along with a few others) and to do this is fairly easy. Just log back into any of your desktop environments and open the terminal. The different options are stored in *.desktop files within the folder /usr/share/xsessions. To remove desktop entries from the login menu, you simply need to rename the ones you don’t want. In the terminal navigate to the folder and rename the appropriate files:

  • cd /usr/share/xsessions
  • sudo mv cinnamon2d.desktop cinnamon2d.desktop.bac


Continue this method for all the options you wish to remove and the next time you log out, you will see the change. To get an option back just rename it back to the original:

  • cd /usr/share/xsessions
  • sudo mv cinnamon2d.desktop.bac cinnamon2d.desktop

          Rethink Big and Europe?s Position in Big Data   

I will here take a break from core database and talk a bit about EU policies for research funding.

I had lunch with Stefan Manegold of CWI last week, where we talked about where European research should go. Stefan is involved in RETHINK big, a European research project for compiling policy advice regarding big data for EC funding agencies. As part of this, he is interviewing various stakeholders such as end user organizations and developers of technology.

RETHINK big wants to come up with a research agenda primarily for hardware, anything from faster networks to greener data centers. CWI represents software expertise in the consortium.

So, we went through a regular questionnaire about how we see the landscape. I will summarize this below, as this is anyway informative.

Core competence

My own core competence is in core database functionality, specifically in high performance query processing, scale-out, and managing schema-less data. Most of the Virtuoso installed base is in the RDF space, but most potential applications are in fact outside of this niche.

User challenges

The life sciences vertical is the one in which I have the most application insight, from going to Open PHACTS meetings and holding extensive conversations with domain specialists. We have users in many other verticals, from manufacturing to financial services, but there I do not have as much exposure to the actual applications.

Having said this, the challenges throughout tend to be in diversity of data. Every researcher has their MySQL database or spreadsheet, and there may not even be a top level catalogue of everything. Data formats are diverse. Some people use linked data (most commonly RDF) as a top level metadata format. The application data, such as gene sequences or microarray assays, reside in their native file formats and there is little point in RDF-izing these.

There are also public data resources that are published in RDF serializations as vendor-neutral, self-describing format. Having everything as triples, without a priori schema, makes things easier to integrate and in some cases easier to describe and query.

So, the challenge is in the labor intensive nature of data integration. Data comes with different levels of quantity and quality, from hand-curated to NLP extractions. Querying in the single- or double-digit terabyte range with RDF is quite possible, as we have shown many times on this blog, but most use cases do not even go that far. Anyway, what we see on the field is primarily a data diversity game. The scenario is data integration; the technology we provide is database. The data transformation proper, data cleansing, units of measure, entity de-duplication, and such core data-integration functions are performed using diverse, user-specific means.

Jerven Bolleman of the Swiss Institute of Bioinformatics is a user of ours with whom we have long standing discussions on the virtues of federated data and querying. I advised Stefan to go talk to him; he has fresh views about the volume challenges with unexpected usage patterns. Designing for performance is tough if the usage pattern is out of the blue, like correlating air humidity on the day of measurement with the presence of some genomic patterns. Building a warehouse just for that might not be the preferred choice, so the problem field is not exhausted. Generally, I’d go for warehousing though.

What technology would you like to have? Network or power efficiency?

OK. Even a fast network is a network. A set of processes on a single shared-memory box is also a kind of network. InfiniBand is maybe half the throughput and 3x the latency of single threaded interprocess communication within one box. The operative word is latency. Making large systems always involves a network or something very much like one in large scale-up scenarios.

On the software side, next to nobody understands latency and contention; yet these are the one core factor in any pursuit of scalability. Because of this situation, paradigms like MapReduce and bulk synchronous parallel (BSP) processing have become popular because these take the communication out of the program flow, so the programmer cannot muck this up, as otherwise would happen with the inevitability of destiny. Of course, our beloved SQL or declarative query in general does give scalability in many tasks without programmer participation. Datalog has also been used as a means of shipping computation around, as in the the work of Hellerstein.

There are no easy solutions. We have built scale-out conscious, vectorized extensions to SQL procedures where one can express complex parallel, distributed flows, but people do not use or understand these. These are very useful, even indispensable, but only on the inside, not as a programmer-facing construct. MapReduce and BSP are the limit of what a development culture will absorb. MapReduce and BSP do not hide the fact of distributed processing. What about things that do? Parallel, partitioned extensions to Fortran arrays? Functional languages? I think that all the obvious aids to parallel/distributed programming have been conceived of. No silver bullet; just hard work. And above all the discernment of what paradigm fits what problem. Since these are always changing, there is no finite set of rules, and no substitute for understanding and insight, and the latter are vanishingly scarce. "Paradigmatism," i.e., the belief that one particular programming model is a panacea outside of its original niche, is a common source of complexity and inefficiency. This is a common form of enthusiastic naïveté.

If you look at power efficiency, the clusters that are the easiest to program consist of relatively few high power machines and a fast network. A typical node size is 16+ cores and 256G or more RAM. Amazon has these in entirely workable configurations, as documented earlier on this blog. The leading edge in power efficiency is in larger number of smaller units, which makes life again harder. This exacerbates latency and forces one to partition the data more often, whereas one can play with replication of key parts of data more freely if the node size is larger.

One very specific item where research might help without having to rebuild the hardware stack would be better, lower-latency exposure of networks to software. Lightweight threads and user-space access, bypassing slow protocol stacks, etc. MPI has some of this, but maybe more could be done.

So, I will take a cluster of such 16-core, 256GB machines on a faster network, over a cluster of 1024 x 4G mobile phones connected via USB. Very selfish and unecological, but one has to stay alive and life is tough enough as is.

Are there pressures to adapt business models based on big data?

The transition from capex to opex may be approaching maturity, as there have been workable cloud configurations for the past couple of years. The EC2 from way back, with at best a 4 core 16G VM and a horrible network for $2/hr, is long gone. It remains the case that 4 months of 24x7 rent in the cloud equals the purchase price of physical hardware. So, for this to be economical long-term at scale, the average utilization should be about 10% of the peak, and peaks should not be on for more than 10% of the time.

So, database software should be rented by the hour. A 100-150% markup for the $2.80 a large EC2 instance costs would be reasonable. Consider that 70% of the cost in TPC benchmarks is database software.

There will be different pricing models combining different up-front and per-usage costs, just as there are for clouds now. If the platform business goes that way and the market accepts this, then systems software will follow. Price/performance quotes should probably be expressed as speed/price/hour instead of speed/price.

The above is rather uncontroversial but there is no harm restating these facts. Reinforce often.

Well, the question is raised, what should Europe do that would have tangible impact in the next 5 years?

This is a harder question. There is some European business in wide area and mobile infrastructures. Competing against Huawei will keep them busy. Intel and Mellanox will continue making faster networks regardless of European policies. Intel will continue building denser compute nodes, e.g., integrated Knight’s Corner with dual IB network and 16G fast RAM on chip. Clouds will continue making these available on demand once the technology is in mass production.

What’s the next big innovation? Neuromorphic computing? Quantum computing? Maybe. For now, I’d just do more engineering along the core competence discussed above, with emphasis on good marketing and scalable execution. By this I mean trained people who know something about deployment. There is a huge training gap. In the would-be "Age of Data," knowledge of how things actually work and scale is near-absent. I have offered to do some courses on this to partners and public alike, but I need somebody to drive this show; I have other things to do.

I have been to many, many project review meetings, mostly as a project partner but also as reviewer. For the past year, the EC has used an innovation questionnaire at the end of the meetings. It is quite vague, and I don’t think it delivers much actionable intelligence.

What would deliver this would be a venture capital type activity, with well-developed networks and active participation in developing a business. The EC is not now set up to perform this role, though. But the EC is a fairly large and wealthy entity, so it could invest some money via this type of channel. Also there should be higher individual incentives and rewards for speed and excellence. Getting the next Horizon 2020 research grant may be good, but better exists. The grants are competitive enough and the calls are not bad; they follow the times.

In the projects I have seen, productization does get some attention, e.g., the LOD2 stack, but it is not something that is really ongoing or with dedicated commercial backing. It may also be that there is no market to justify such dedicated backing. Much of the RDF work has been "me, too" — let’s do what the real database and data integration people do, but let’s just do this with triples. Innovation? Well, I took the best of the real DB world and adapted this to RDF, which did produce a competent piece of work with broad applicability, extending outside RDF. Is there better than this? Well, some of the data integration work (e.g., LIMES) is not bad, and it might be picked up by some of the players that do this sort of thing in the broader world, e.g., Informatica, the DI suites of big DB vendors, Tamr, etc. I would not know if this in fact adds value to the non-RDF equivalents; I do not know the field well enough, but there could be a possibility.

The recent emphasis for benchmarking, spearheaded by Stefano Bertolo is good, as exemplified by the LDBC FP7. There should probably be one or two projects of this sort going at all times. These make challenges known and are an effective means of guiding research, with a large multiplier: Once a benchmark gets adopted, infinitely more work goes into solving the problem than in stating it in the first place.

The aims and calls are good. The execution by projects is variable. For 1% of excellence, there apparently must be 99% of so-and-so, but this is just a fact of life and not specific to this context. The projects are rather diffuse. There is not a single outcome that gets all the effort. In this, the level of engagement of participants is less and focus is much more scattered than in startups. A really hungry, go-getter mood is mostly absent. I am a believer in core competence. Well, most people will agree that core competence is nice. But the projects I have seen do not drive for it hard enough.

It is hard to say exactly what kinds of incentives could be offered to encourage truly exceptional work. The American startup scene does offer high rewards and something of this could be transplanted into the EC project world. I would not know exactly what form this could take, though.


          Reviewing Computer Science Programs   
Today, wherever we turn we see the necessity for computers and information technology, which is why so many institutes offer computer science programs. Advanced computing technology goes into the creation of various day to day gadgets such as televisions, digital radios, washing machines, mobile phones and cars that we take so much for granted.

Modern cars that come with diverse features such as engine management, anti-lock braking, windscreen wipers and the eight or more microprocessors, require skilled and expert, well trained computer programmers.

The film industry with its mind-boggling special effects and graphics and the computer games industry require talented and creative computer programmers. Computer science programs are thus greatly in demand as there are a variety of diverse job prospects for graduates in this discipline. For a healthy economy today, in fact, countries around the world must produce enough computer science graduates.

A good university offers a comprehensive computer program course that is a far cry from the basic web publishing, word processing and spreadsheet packages offered in schools. These courses are highly challenging. Students are taught various principles and concepts based on which the languages and computers work. They are also taught how to write effective and good software programs that are well structured.

Other aspects you will learn about include designing algorithms and programs that run in the most reliable, efficient and speedy manner and analyzing quick problem solving methods.

The ever expanding IT reach today has increased the demand and need for highly effective security techniques. Computer science programs teach students how to develop these techniques taking care of privacy issues.

It is important choosing the best program after careful research. Depending on your time constraints, you can choose to do an online or on-campus program. Equip yourself with a degree in computer science from a reputed institute to greatly enhance your job prospects.
          Computer and Mathematics   
ALGORITHMS

In mathematics, method of solving a problem by repeatedly using a simpler computational method. A basic example is the process of long division in arithmetic. The term algorithm is now applied to many kinds of problem solving that employ a mechanical sequence of steps, as in setting up a computer program. The sequence may be displayed in the form of a flowchart in order to make it easier to follow.

As with algorithms used in arithmetic, algorithms for computers can range from simple to highly complex. In all cases, however, the task that the algorithm is to accomplish must be definable. That is, the definition may involve mathematical or logic terms or a compilation of data or written instructions, but the task itself must be one that can be stated in some way. In terms of ordinary computer usage, this means that algorithms must be programmable, even if the tasks themselves turn out to have no solution.

In computational devices with a built-in microcomputer logic, this logic is a form of algorithm. As computers increase in complexity, more and more software-program algorithms are taking the form of what is called hard software. That is, they are increasingly becoming part of the basic circuitry of computers or are easily attached adjuncts, as well as standing alone in special devices such as office payroll machines. Many different applications algorithms are now available, and highly advanced systems such as artificial intelligence algorithms may become common in the future.

ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE

Artificial Intelligence (AI), a term that in its broadest sense would indicate the ability of an artifact to perform the same kinds of functions that characterize human thought. The possibility of developing some such artifact has intrigued human beings since ancient times. With the growth of modern science, the search for AI has taken two major directions: psychological and physiological research into the nature of human thought, and the technological development of increasingly sophisticated computing systems.

In the latter sense, the term AI has been applied to computer systems and programs capable of performing tasks more complex than straightforward programming, although still far from the realm of actual thought. The most important fields of research in this area are information processing, pattern recognition, game-playing computers, and applied fields such as medical diagnosis. Current research in information processing deals with programs that enable a computer to understand written or spoken information and to produce summaries, answer specific questions, or redistribute information to users interested in specific areas of this information. Essential to such programs is the ability of the system to generate grammatically correct sentences and to establish linkages between words, ideas, and associations with other ideas. Research has shown that whereas the logic of language structure-its syntax-submits to programming, the problem of meaning, or semantics, lies far deeper, in the direction of true AI.

In medicine, programs have been developed that analyze the disease symptoms, medical history, and laboratory test results of a patient, and then suggest a diagnosis to the physician. The diagnostic program is an example of so-called expert systems-programs designed to perform tasks in specialized areas as a human would. Expert systems take computers a step beyond straightforward programming, being based on a technique called rule-based inference, in which preestablished rule systems are used to process the data. Despite their sophistication, systems still do not approach the complexity of true intelligent thought.

Many scientists remain doubtful that true AI can ever be developed. The operation of the human mind is still little understood, and computer design may remain essentially incapable of analogously duplicating those unknown, complex processes. Various routes are being used in the effort to reach the goal of true AI. One approach is to apply the concept of parallel processing-interlinked and concurrent computer operations. Another is to create networks of experimental computer chips, called silicon neurons, that mimic data-processing functions of brain cells. Using analog technology, the transistors in these chips emulate nerve-cell membranes in order to operate at the speed of neurons.

LINEAR PROGRAMMING

Linear Programming, mathematical and operations-research technique, used in administrative and economic planning to maximize the linear functions of a large number of variables, subject to certain constraints. The development of high-speed electronic computers and data-processing techniques has brought about many recent advances in linear programming, and the technique is now widely used in industrial and military operations.

Linear programming is basically used to find a set of values, chosen from a prescribed set of numbers, that will maximize or minimize a given polynomial form and this is illustrated by the finished; the manufacturer knows that as many articles as are produced can be sold.

          Reflections on PWN2Own 2016: the state and future of computer security   

Another year, another Pwn2Own contest.

TL;DR results for 2016:

  • Prize money: about half a million USD.
  • All major browsers successfully exploited: Chrome, Safari, Edge
  • All attacks bypassed all exploitation countermeasures (e.g., Sandboxing, address randomization) to successfully escalate all the way to root/SYSTEM level privileges
  • Nobody broke through the VM

Reflections:

  1. Kernel security sucks and will always suck.

    Security mechanisms enforced by the kernel have more holes than swiss cheese. From the point of view of an advanced attacker code running in a "sandbox" as an unprivileged user is going to escalate to root/SYSTEM level privileges 100% of the time.

    There are too many lines of code, the attack surface is too large and human programmers are too imperfect.

    The kernel is an unreliable primitive from a security standpoint. You just can't trust it.

  2. End-point security is still terrible and the same will be true 10 years from now (hello Pwn2Own 2026!) unless there is a radical change in software architecture that acknolwedges the cold hard realities of computer security over the wishy washy desires of senior executives.

    • Contests like Pwn2Own are just showing us the tip of our collective vulnerability iceberg: there are hundreds if not thousands of zero day exploitable holes lurking under the surface of all sufficiently complex software. Especially the software implemented in high-performing yet error prone low-level languages. This includes all browsers and operating systems. Quinn Norton has it exactly right: Everything is broken.

      To get a hint of what lurks beneath the surface, read up on VUPEN security, now rebranded zerodium, a 0day market which pays top dollar (up to 1 million USD) to hoard exploits and lists the NSA amongst its clients. By comparison the bug bounties offered by most vendors are chump change.

    • It gets worse. Even if a genie granted us one wish and patched all existing vulnerabilities that wouldn't help for long because software is a fast moving target. Thanks to new development, vulnerabilities are likely opening up at a faster rate than they're being detected and patched.

    • Any conventional up-to-date computer with a browser can be compromised if you're willing to make the effort to develop zero day exploits and risk sacrificing the exploit if your attack is detected.

      Speaking of detection, unless you're attacking Kaspersky or other high-value targets it usually won't be and even then the exploits you sacrifice are probably just a tiny part of your arsenal as an advanced attacker. Case in point, the attackers that went after Kaspersky sacrificed multiple zero days in their attempt. They had to know there was a high risk of detection but they took the risk anyway. Why? Kaspersky think it was hubris, but I'll bet it's because they could afford to lose a handful of zero days. There's more where those came from.

    • Nearly everyone in the world is always just one wrong click away from being totally pwned.

      Advanced attackers are unimpressed that your system is fully patched. For high risk applications being fully patched does as much good as running an antivirus. Which isn't saying much.

      What you're really achieving when you play the security patch treadmill game is that you're undemocratizing illict access to your systems. Keeping the script kiddies at bay while maybe forcing more advanced attackers to factor in the risk of sacrificing a zero day from their arsenal. That's it.

    • The probable ubiquity of hardware backdoors in Intel & AMD chipsets is in practice somewhat irrelevant, since software is by far the weakest link in the chain and will remain so for the foreseeable future.

  3. Vulnerabilities in low-level (C/C++) code are still extremely relevant and the cost of attack is pretty low for client-side and privilege escalation attacks. A few weeks of a single skilled researcher's time.

    By now all the big companies have strong security awareness and yet none of them are managing to prevent modestly motivated attackers from achieving full remote code execution with system privileges.

    This state of affairs will not change until the fundamental security architecture of our systems changes. I expect to see more hardware enforced containment baked into the operating systems of the future.

    Examples of this trend in the wild:

    • Qubes OS
    • Microsoft Windows 10 Enterprise using the hypervisor to secure the LSA. This is mostly security theatre at present, but if the trend continues it could be useful.
  4. The stats for publically released exploits don't tell the whole story

    If you look at the stats for the exploits being publically released you'll notice low-level vulnerabilities have gone way down. I used to take that as a sign that there were less of these issues to exploit, and that's probably true to a degree, but there's an important cultural and economic aspect to this as well.

    I suspect part of the reason we're not seeing more Pwn2Own level exploits being released in public is that a lucrative private market has risen to disincentivize free disclosure while simultaneously, the cost of fully weaponizing vulnerabilities has risen due to exploitation countermeasures. The people willing and capable of paying the toll have better uses for their skills than giving them away. Like selling exploits privately for up to a million dollars.

  5. Containment is the only realistic defensive strategy and hypervisors are the only semi-reliable primitive from which you can architect reasonably secured systems.

    Sure, there are likely undiscovered zero day "escape from VM" vulnerabilities in all of them, but hypervisors are a much smaller and simpler than operating systems kernels so they have much smaller attack surfaces.

    They're also not moving as fast as other targets so stamping out all the exploitable bugs should be an achievable goal eventually.

    VMs are also easy to set up as honeypots since the host has complete transparent access to all the guests resources, but not vice versa. Attackers will think long and hard before risking the sacrifice of a zero day in a hypervisor.

  6. Decentralization is a good thing because big organizations of all stripes can not be trusted to resist attack, uphold their own policies or keep our secrets.

    Their attack surface is too large and too complicated. Too many assumptions have to hold for their security not to crumble like a house of cards in the face of an advanced attack.

    Since all of the big companies are eating their own vulnerable dog food (and each others) and they're such irresistibly juicy targets we should assume they are all deeply compromised by a plethora of intelligence agencies, organized crime and clever individuals.

    The degree to which it is reasonable to let someone else safeguard your secrets is not just how much you trust them not to abuse that power themselves, but also how much you trust them not to be abused.

    That should be prime and center in the discussion regarding mass surveillance, government mandated backdoors and how much of our private information we feel safe handing over to companies like Google and Facebook. Well intentioned checks and balances at a legal level won't protect against hackers that have pwned your sysadmin's laptop.

    I believe the problem with trusting big organizations is inherently unfixable.

    Like most of us, big organizations will always prioritize getting things done over a serious attempt at closing off all avenues of attack, which is the way it should be. It's also what public opinion and public markets demand. Companies that over-prioritize security will go out of business. Governments that over-prioritize security may end up looking like North Korea.

    But in a world where we don't collectively trust big organizations to maintain our security and keep our secrets, attacks, while still possible, would be much harder to pull off. They'd have to pick us off one by one.

  7. If a true security renaissance ever takes place the driving force will not be personal computers or mobile computing but self driving cars and their like.

    Autonomous self-driving cars will give hackers the power of life and death over anyone that uses them and eventually over anyone that shares the road with these hackable computers on wheels.

    Just think about that for a moment. Plausibly deniable death from afar. An unfortunate accident or the perfect crime?

    On the other hand, so many people are killed in road accidents due to human error that society may accept/repress that risk and work to raise the bar so assassination by hacking is something only the most rich and powerful actually have to worry about. Gulp. I hope.

          Gauge Backgrounds and Zero-Mode Counting in F-Theory   
Computing the exact spectrum of charged massless matter is a crucial step towards understanding the effective field theory describing F-theory vacua in four dimensions. In this work we further develop a coherent framework to determine the charged massless matter in F-theory compactified on elliptic fourfolds, and demonstrate its application in a concrete example. The gauge background is represented, via duality with M-theory, by algebraic cycles modulo rational equivalence. Intersection theory within the Chow ring allows us to extract coherent sheaves on the base of the elliptic fibration whose cohomology groups encode the charged zero-mode spectrum. The dimensions of these cohomology groups are computed with the help of modern techniques from algebraic geometry, which we implement in the software gap. We exemplify this approach in models with an Abelian and non-Abelian gauge group and observe jumps in the exact massless spectrum as the complex structure moduli are varied. An extended mathematical appendix gives a self-contained introduction to the algebro-geometric concepts underlying our framework.

          Princeton, NJ -- Community Events This Week   

If you're in the Princeton, NJ area - or can somehow manage to get here - this week, boy do we have some events for you!  Infragistics has teamed up with our local .NET User Group (NJDOTNET) and our local Microsoft Developer Evangelists out of New York City to bring you the following awesome events:

  1. Thursday, December 11th, 1PM - 5PM:  MSDN Roadshow
    Presenters:  Peter Laudati and Bill Zack
    Session 1: Cloud Computing

    Hear about key problems that cloud computing is solving and how these services fit into the Microsoft cloud computing initiatives. Learn about the pillars of the platform, its service lifecycle, and see how they fit with both Microsoft and non-Microsoft technologies.

    Session 2: Silverlight 2 Application Development

    Now it’s time for you to get ready to build next generation rich Internet applications with Silverlight!  In this session, we’ll quickly review what the Silverlight 2 platform is, and then move into the bits and bytes.

  2. Thursday, December 11th, 6:15-8:30 PM:  NJDOTNET User Group monthly meeting
    Topic:  The ASP.NET MVC Framework
    Presenter:  Jess Chadwick

    The Model-View-Controller (MVC) architectural pattern is one that many developers are familiar with which separates an application into three main components: the model, the view, and the controller. The ASP.NET MVC framework provides an alternative to the ASP.NET Web Forms pattern for creating MVC-based Web applications. It is a lightweight, highly testable framework that allows you to easily incorporate this pattern into your applications, helping to separate the different aspects  (input logic, business logic, and UI logic) into loosely-coupled and pluggable elements.

  3. Saturday, December 13th,  9:30 AM - 5:00 PM:  NJDOTNET ASP.NET MVC Firestarter
    Join us at the Infragistics HQ to participate in an all-day, deep-dive into one of Microsoft's latest (and greatest!) technologies: ASP.NET MVC.

    At the ASP.NET MVC Firestarter, we’ll give you a quick tour of the framework, then peel back the layers and dive deeper into how it works.   As part of that, we’ll spend time discussing the design and development practices that lead to the creation of the MVC framework.  By the time you leave, you’ll have enough knowledge to get fired up and start building web applications with it.

    Detailed Agenda:

    • ASP.NET MVC Introduction
      • The MVC Design Pattern
      • Hello World Demo – Walking through routing, controllers, and views
    • Framework Fundamentals & Practices
      • C# 3.0 Primer
      • Anonymous Classes
      • Lambda Expressions
      • Extention Methods
      • LINQ
      • Dependency Injection

This video was posted on a blog that I read. Its real cool to think about where computing is going in the future? Where is our technology going to next? I believe that we are advancing on how we can apply the technology we have rather than trying to create new technologies. This is just one example of how a mixture of technologies we have today can be applied for tomorrow. Check out the video below.

          SkippyFoV - Field of View Calculator   

SkippyFoV - is a nice little programm to calculate the field of View for Astrophotography

Andrew Cool from Australia sends us some information about his lattest programm:

 

....

I’ve often used Ron Wodaski’s 2001 vintage CCD Calculator to see how an object will appear in a camera stuck on a scope.

 But after 15 years advancement in computing power, I figured it could do with a facelift.

Enter SkippyFoV, which uses sliders to adjust the various parameters that determine Field Of View, and provides

a real time animated image using genuine photos to show how your scope/camera will view the object.

 

Download SkippyFoV from http://www.cool.id.au/SkippyFoV/SkippyFoV.zip

 

The animation of the graphics as you move the sliders is smooth on my desktop PC. How it fares on someone’s

2004 vintage laptop running XP, I know not.

SkippyFoV is not installed into the Registry. Just unzip the file into a directory of your own

making, e.g. C:\SkippyFoV, and run the SkippyFoV.exe file.

 

The image scale, width FoV and Height FoV sliders are “output” only, and it could well be argued that

they should be removed, leaving just text fields for those values.

........

Now up to v1.02, with new facility to save/load preset combinations of scope/camera, as well as one major bug smashed.

 

Download from www.cool.id.au/SkippyFoV/

 

 

Enjoy Skippy FoV when you´re planning  your next session!

          When Women Stopped Coding   
Modern computer science is dominated by men. But it hasn't always been this way. A lot of computing pioneers — the people who programmed the first digital computers — were women. And for decades, the number of women studying computer science was growing faster than the number of men. But in 1984, something changed. The percentage of women in computer science flattened, and then plunged, even as the share of women in other technical and professional fields kept rising. What happened? We spent the past few weeks trying to answer this question, and there's no clear, single answer. But here's a good starting place: The share of women in computer science started falling at roughly the same moment when personal computers started showing up in U.S. homes in significant numbers. These early personal computers weren't much more than toys. You could play pong or simple shooting games, maybe do some word processing. And these toys were marketed almost entirely to men and boys. This idea that
          The American People Are The Number One Target: "They Are Tightening The Screws"   

Authored by Jeremiah Johnson (Nom de plume of a retired Green Beret of the United States Army Special Forces ) via SHTFplan.com,

A little more than a week ago it was announced that Whole Foods was bought by Amazon.com for just under $14 billion.  One of the major problems with this is that Jeff Bezos, the head of Amazon has deep ties with the CIA and the Federal government.

Wal-Mart being fully in the government’s pocket and now Whole Foods brought under thumb as well, how much longer before Kissinger’s “Food as a Weapon” principle is brought to bear?  A good article was just released by Jon Rappaport entitled Buy your food from the CIA: Amazon buys Whole Foods, that is worth reading.

As if that connection is not nefarious enough, there is more: it appears a new cloud technology is being produced for the CIA from…you guessed it…none other than the CIA, as is excerpted here:

The intelligence community is about to get the equivalent of an adrenaline shot to the chest. This summer, a $600 million computing cloud developed by Amazon Web Services for the Central Intelligence Agency over the past year will begin servicing all 17 agencies that make up the intelligence community. If the technology plays out as officials envision, it will usher in a new era of cooperation and coordination, allowing agencies to share information and services much more easily and avoid the kind of intelligence gaps that preceded the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.

 

“The Details About the CIA’s Deal with Amazon,” - www.theatlantic.com    6/17/17

Guess the data center that ran taxpayers billions that is in Utah is not enough, nor the fusion centers in every state.  Did you like “…a new era of cooperation and coordination…” between the friendly agencies?  And all to “avoid intelligence gaps,” just for your protection, right?

Wrong.

They are tightening the screws, little by little, while they refine all the control mechanisms and place that security web over their number one target: the American people. 

They are taking control of the food supply incrementally.  Water?  Yes, here in Montana, the state just sent out a form for property owners to declare their water rights…as the CKST (Confederated Kootenai &Salish Tribes) Water Compact was passed into law in Montana in 2014.  Actions will be taken within the next two years.

As enumerated in other articles, Montana kicked in $3 million after the liberals in the state House and Senate, as well as the liberal governor, Bullock (D, MT) signed the water compact into law.  The shortfall is $8 million, as the total state commitment was $11 million.  They are just waiting for the Senate to ratify this as a Federal treaty, and then they can (ostensibly on “behalf” of the Indian Tribes) place meters on everyone’s wells…off of the reservation…and “manage” the water on behalf of the Indian Tribes…enforced by DHS.

This is a small slice of the country as a whole.  They are following full speed ahead with the Agenda 21 Directive to take over everyone’s food, water, land…everything.  A war will surely enable them to throw the Executive Order 13603 into action to confiscate and control every resource in the United States, including human labor…slave labor, to be precise.  Incrementally they place these laws into effect, and the stultified public, thinking only of the next barbeque and fireworks party is dumbed down into inactivity.

There’s enough going on in the international arena that is capturing everyone’s attention, such as North Korea’s missile tests and threats, China’s aggressive South China Sea/Senkaku islands maneuvering, and the Syrian debacle unfolding with the U.S. ratcheting up the tough-talk of blaming Russia and Iran for any “Syrian chemical attack” that comes along.  Russia also just deployed a new satellite, and there is the possibility that in a televised broadcast, he sent out a message to “sleeper” agent in the West.  See the article by Stefan Stanford entitled Vladimir Putin sends message to ‘Russian Sleeper Agents’ in West as Russia Launches Top Secret Military Satellite.

“Hammer and Anvil” usually refers to a military maneuver to crush an enemy force between two friendly elements.  This maneuver is being employed here and now, as well: either crush the United States and enslave its people domestically, with an economic collapse or civil war, or just initiate a war with another country and enslave the citizenry afterward.  Either way, they are pushing their agenda forward each day.  It is just a matter of time to find out which of the two vehicles…international war or domestic tyranny…that they will employ to obtain their globalist and totalitarian objectives.

          EC17: the ACM conference on Economics and Computation   
EC is now a long-running computer science conference (underway right now at MIT). I think the initials initially stood for Electronic Commerce, but developments in both Econ and CS have let to the initial-conserving new name, Economics and Computation.

The program is a striking demonstration of the growing intersection between Ec and CS...among the papers that catch my eye are some on fairness, pricing, matching markets, and market design generally.

          Lucas Nussbaum: on the Dark Ages of Free Software: a “Free Service Definition”?   

Stefano Zacchiroli opened DebConf’14 with an insightful talk titled Debian in the Dark Ages of Free Software (slides available, video available soon).

He makes the point (quoting slide 16) that the Free Software community is winning a war that is becoming increasingly pointless: yes, users have 100% Free Software thin client at their fingertips [or are really a few steps from there]. But all their relevant computations happen elsewhere, on remote systems they do not control, in the Cloud.

That give-up on control of computing is a huge and important problem, and probably the largest challenge for everybody caring about freedom, free speech, or privacy today. Stefano rightfully points out that we must do something about it. The big question is: how can we, as a community, address it?

Towards a Free Service Definition?

I believe that we all feel a bit lost with this issue because we are trying to attack it with our current tools & weapons. However, they are largely irrelevant here: the Free Software Definition is about software, and software is even to be understood strictly in it, as software programs. Applying it to services, or to computing in general, doesn’t lead anywhere. In order to increase the general awareness about this issue, we should define more precisely what levels of control can be provided, to understand what services are not providing to users, and to make an informed decision about waiving a particular level of control when choosing to use a particular service.

Benjamin Mako Hill pointed out yesterday during the post-talk chat that services are not black or white: there aren’t impure and pure services. Instead, there’s a graduation of possible levels of control for the computing we do. The Free Software Definition lists four freedoms — how many freedoms, or types of control, should there be in a Free Service Definition, or a Controlled-Computing Definition? Again, this is not only about software: the platform on which a particular piece of software is executed has a huge impact on the available level of control: running your own instance of WordPress, or using an instance on wordpress.com, provides very different control (even if as Asheesh Laroia pointed out yesterday, WordPress does a pretty good job at providing export and import features to limit data lock-in).

The creation of such a definition is an iterative process. I actually just realized today that (according to Wikipedia) the very first occurrence of an attempt at a Free Software Definition was published in 1986 (GNU’s bulletin Vol 1 No.1, page 8) — I thought it happened a couple of years earlier. Are there existing attempts at defining such freedoms or levels of controls, and at benchmarking such criteria against existing services? Such criteria would not only include control over software modifications and (re)distribution, but also likely include mentions of interoperability and open standards, both to enable the user to move to a compatible service, and to avoid forcing the user to use a particular implementation of a service. A better understanding of network effects is also needed: how much and what type of service lock-in is acceptable on social networks in exchange of functionality?

I think that we should inspire from what was achieved during the last 30 years on Free Software. The tools that were produced are probably irrelevant to address this issue, but there’s a lot to learn from the way they were designed. I really look forward to the day when we will have:

  • a Free Software Definition equivalent for services
  • Debian Free Software Guidelines-like tests/checklist to evaluate services
  • an equivalent of The Cathedral and the Bazaar, explaining how one can build successful business models on top of open services

Exciting times!

          Israel Cyber Authority: Dozens of Hospital Computers Hacked, No Damage Done    
Computing systems at a number of Israeli hospitals were attacked late Wednesday night, but no substantial damage was caused, according to the National Cyber Security Authority.

Fifty computers at eight different hospitals were attacked using a virus, but hospital functioning wasn’t disrupted, the authority said.

Cyber authority official Rafi Franco stressed that the number of computers hacked was marginal, considering that Israeli hospitals use hundreds of thousands of computers and that no information was stolen.

"We identified anti-virus system alerts in some hospitals," said Franco. "We saw the security systems blocking injuries, so we brought a team in cooperation with the Health Ministry to the area. These are computers whose anti-virus system has yet to be updated. No damage was done and no information was stolen from the 50 hacked computers, but they were disconnected from the network for safety. There was no shutdown or a decrease in the ability of any hospital's functioning."

Franco added that the authority was investigating the incident. "We still don’t know the source of the attack, but our assessment is that it's not a targeted attack against Israel."


          Sterile flat crammed beside navy    
Being a initiate of the Internet and realms of engineering in general, the idea of wall hanging out in an Internet café alarmed me something like as overmuch as it previously owned to when I prototypical sat in foremost a machine difficult to figure out how to change direction the piece on. Pictures of super-obese, nerdy, impudent tech-heads bursting my pave the way as well as visions of stagnant, sterile flat crammed beside navy screens bright the most recent wit heroes and young idols. Well, I simply went on a crossing to individual countries circa the world and I ventured into this dishonorable sector, as I wished-for to living in touch near ethnic group put money on marital. Although I avowedly didn't meeting masses of these cafes (I necessary a break from the computing device worlds of college and trade), the few I did see were rather different from what I hoped-for.First stop was a café in Prague, Czech Republic. This was invisible lint an alley but was adjacent to restaurant so it seemed not detrimental enough. I postpaid the alike of righteous all over $1.00 U.S. for a half unit of time on the machine-not too bad eh? Now I don't know if I was attacked by an nasty soul or right had thing near my mentality that day, but for several common sense it took 25 report to simply get into my hotmail! First of all, the keyboard was different, and in odd ways I william tell you. If you hit the Y key it came out as a Z and vice versa. I was bewildered subsequently in London that their device was as well incompatible from the ones' backbone conjugal. I inspiration keyboards were universally the same in circles the planet! I before i go got into my hotmail, conveyed a one castigation email and port. Looking in circles me as I absent I saw that best of the group using computers were alleged sane kindred approaching myself, primarily backpackers and tourists, but besides business community etc. If I had more than forbearance that day it probably would have been a good space to be part of a set of, I saw that they served drinkable and tea, but as I was in a attractive outside plonk I needful to get out lower than the Sun amidst the actual act.My remaining most important feel in the municipal Internet world was to be in the North of London in a suburbia titled Neesdon or 'Sneezdon' as the Aussie match I met up near likeable to call upon it. Here, the Café was absolutely dissimilar from the former one and I imagine -I don't same to assume-that similar to people, each café is an private entity with some bubbly and gloomy traits as very well as bonuses and letdowns. This 'café' was in the stern of a motorized (cellular) car phone store and was merely a atomic breathing space near a small indefinite quantity of computers that no one else seemed to be interested in, each one looked much fixed on phones, but I have a uncanny thought they might have been dealing thing else 'under the counter' that was sparking hot wonder.Post ads:phone recording software freeware / is he cheating quiz free / how to record phone conversations uk / cheaters jobs / 5 ways prevent cheating / chess cheating detection / daily record phone in / call record software satio / automobile video surveillance system / ownspy spy call / sms filter java mobile phone / spy call software samsung / benefits of surveillance technology / impi phonemonitor / blake shelton cheating with christina / can you record telephone call iphone / spy wifes text messagesWe prepaid 1 pulp (approx. $1.75U.S.) for an 60 minutes.

          Feasibility and adherence paradigm to ecological momentary assessments in urban minority youth.   
All adolescents in general, including ethnic and racial minorities, report high levels of cell phone use, making mobile technology a useful tool for assessment and intervention. Known health and education disparities based on minority status motivated us to conduct an in-depth investigation regarding feasibility of and adherence to the ecological momentary assessment (EMA) research protocol, studying daily life of urban minority youth. In addition, this paper presents a methodological approach to conceptualizing and reporting adherence in EMA studies. The sample was comprised of 126 youth (41.3% boys; 40.5% 7th and 59.5% 8th graders; 75.4% African American, and 20.6% Hispanic) who carried a mobile phone for 10 days, including 2 weekends and reported on activities, moods, and attitudes. Mean level of adherence was 81% for momentary and 93.8% for daily assessments; it decreased over time and was higher during the week compared to weekends. Adherence was lower on days when participants reported high levels of negative affect and on days when they were engaged in physical activities. Our findings underscore the importance of differentiating between human and technology-related factors when computing adherence rates and portray adherence as a complex and dynamic construct that can vary across individuals. Specific study recommendations and methodological discussion provide guidelines for designing future studies. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2017 APA, all rights reserved)

          RAPID PROTOTYPING - Field programmable gate array based parallel matrix multiplier for 3D affine transformations   
3D graphics performance is increasing faster than any other computing application. Almost all PC systems now include 3D graphics accelerators for games, computer aided design or visualisation applications. This article investigates the suitability of field programmable gate array devices as an accelerator for implementing 3D affine transformations. Proposed solution based on processing large matrix multiplication have been implemented, for large 3D models, on the RC1000 Celoxica board based development platform using Handel-C. Outstanding results have been obtained for the acceleration of 3D transformations using fixed and floating-point arithmetic
          Efficient algebraic code-excited linear predictive codebook search   
To reduce the computational complexity of algebraic code-excited linear prediction (ACELP) coders, an efficient codebook search mechanism based on a simplified correlation matrix (SCM) of the vocal impulse response is proposed. In the proposed approach, the statistical characteristics of the vocal impulse response are identified such that only a small proportion of the total number of correlation coefficients in the correlation matrix need be calculated before the ACELP search procedure is carried out. Furthermore, the proposed joint scheme, by combining the SCM method and a pulse position prediction scheme, not only decreases the arithmetic complexity in the pre-computing autocorrelation matrix but also reduces the number of pulse position combinations. The simulation and experimental results show that the proposed method provides an effective reduction in the computational load of the ACELP codebook search procedure with no discernible degradation of the speech quality
          Subpixel motion computing architecture   
A pipelined optical-flow processing system that works as a virtual motion sensor has been described. It is based on a field programmable gate array (FPGA) device enabling the easy change of configuring parameters to adapt the sensor to different speeds, light conditions and other environmental factors. It is referred to as a `virtual sensor' because it consists of a conventional camera as front-end supported by an FPGA processing device, which embeds the frame grabber, optical-flow algorithm implementation, output module and some configuration and storage circuitry. This is the first fully stand-alone working optical-flow processing system to include both accuracy and speed of measurement of the platform performance. The customisability of the system for different hardware resources and platforms has also been discussed, showing the resources and performance for a stand-alone board and a PCI co-processing board
          Combined thresholding and neural network approach for vein pattern extraction from leaf images   
Living plant recognition based on images of leaf, flower and fruit is a very challenging task in the field of pattern recognition and computer vision. There has been little work reported on flower and fruit image processing and recognition. In recent years, several researchers have dedicated their work to leaf characterisation. As an inherent trait, leaf vein definitely contains the important information for plant species recognition despite its complex modality. A new approach that combines a thresholding method and an artificial neural network (ANN) classifier is proposed to extract leaf veins. A preliminary segmentation based on the intensity histogram of leaf images is first carried out to coarsely determine vein regions. This is followed by a fine segmentation using a trained ANN classifier with ten features extracted from a window centred on the object pixel as its inputs. Compared with other methods, experimental results show that this combined approach is capable of extracting more accurate venation modality of the leaf for the subsequent vein pattern classification. The approach can also reduce the computing time compared with a direct neural network approach

          Living without a laptop, Part II, aka: Why I cried uncle   

Originally posted on: http://kellydjones.com/archive/2014/03/29/155810.aspx

About this time last spring, I wrote how I was going to start Living without a laptop.  I had just switched jobs and had to turn in a good work laptop, which was replaced by a desktop at my new job. After living and working like this for a year, I have finally caved in and ordered a laptop for work.

z400-2So how did I get here? Well, for the last year my main computing devices have been: an HP desktop (z400) at work, a custom built AMD desktop at home, and an original Surface RT tablet.  Whenever I was away from my desk at work, I could use my Surface to keep notes (OneNote – awesome) and also keep up with my Outlook.  I was able to do this because I had my Surface connected to the secure Wi-Fi network at the office.

I also had the option of using Remote Desktop to connect to my office workstation if I needed to do something that WindowsRT couldn’t do.  A lot of this functionality hinged on me being able to connect to the office network.  This all worked until an update to my SurfaceRT in January killed my ability to do just that.

SurfaceRT/WindowsRT has its limitsSurfaceRT

Our private wireless network at the office requires that I enter my username and password, which it still prompts me for after the update, but it also prompts me for a network key which we don’t have and the Surface didn’t require before.  Since there isn’t a big group of us Surface RT users, I fell into the category of unsupported (on your own) users at work.

There is still a guest network that I can use, which allows my Surface to get out the internet, where I store my OneNote notes.  However, I can’t connect using our remote access options, because I can’t install Java for the VPN nor can I get the Citrix Receiver application to work with our Citrix remote option. Without these remote options, I can’t use Outlook and I can’t use Remote Desktop, making my Surface RT rather limited. (For those wondering, I went so far in my troubleshooting that I completely wiped my Surface and reinstalled everything – hoping that it would work like it did before, but I had no luck with that.)

I also found another scenario where the Surface isn’t a laptop replacement – trying to use the keyboard without a proper desk/table available.  I first ran into this when I attended a conference in 2012.  The conference was set up with rows of chairs, but no tables in front of them.  I had the choice of either using the on screen keyboard to take notes (which isn’t a great experience for more than brief notes) or using the keyboard and trying to balance it on my lap. My typing would often make the Surface move/teeter, and the kick stand didn’t make the viewing angle of the screen good, nor did it feel good as it cut into the tops of legs.

This isn’t the only place where a table wasn’t available.  Turns out I missed being able to use the keyboard while seated on our couch in front of the TV.  Most people will say that tablets are great for being in front of the TV. Tablets are great for consuming things, like catching up on Twitter or Facebook, or reading blogs, but I’m just not that productive doing email or development without my keyboard.

To the cloud – new goal at the office

While all of this was happening with my mobile options, the game was also changing when it came to my need for a powerful desktop. One of the reasons I needed this computing power was so I could run a SharePoint development environment.  This included running not only Visual Studio, but also the SharePoint server software which takes gobs of memory and storage. So how did this requirement change? Two new changes we adopted – moving to Office 365 and using Azure as part of our MSDN subscriptions.

First, we’re moving to SharePoint Online and won’t have SharePoint on premise in a few months.  This changes our development to be focused on more wide stream web technologies which don’t require that you develop on a SharePoint server.

Second, Microsoft introduced Azure credits with an MSDN subscription.  I can now use that to spin up virtual machines in Azure for development environments that require I be running on a server, like some SharePoint projects require (maintaining legacy sandbox solutions).  For those that don’t, I can simply use Visual Studio on

After thinking through all of this, I decided to request an Ultrabook laptop for work.  I got a nice little HP Elitebook Folio 9470m, which is pretty slim/small, making it a good note taking device for meetings, but I can also use it to run Outlook and all of our remote access options work.  I also have a docking station and large monitors on my desk, so when I’m there I’m not limited to the smallish screen of the laptop.

I’m still using my home desktop when I’m telecommuting, but if I need to catch up on email, I now have the option of doing so from my couch.


          Living without a laptop   

Originally posted on: http://kellydjones.com/archive/2013/04/21/152760.aspx

Due to my job change, I'm getting the "opportunity" to re-evaluate my computing needs at home. This is because I've had a company laptop since I first started consulting back in 2004.

Most recently, I had an awesome laptop from work (Cardinal Solutions). It was a Dell Precision M6400 (I think) with an Intel Core i7 processor, 16GB RAM, a separate video card, two SSDs for storage, and a 15in screen with a high resolution (I think it was 1080p or better). All of this power was needed when I was running SharePoint Virtual Machines (or Outlook – for those of you using Outlook, you know what I mean). Just an awesomely powerful computer.

It was my primary computer both at work and at home, since I'd use it for work/home email, web browsing, etc.

So, once I knew I'd be returning it, I started thinking about its replacement. I already had a desktop at my new job and I might request a laptop, but I knew I wasn't going to be using the work laptop as much as I had the other one.

First things first, I thought about what I already had at home. I have a Windows server (custom built using typical workstation hardware) that I use for general file storage, running Virtual Machines with Hyper-V, media server (for the Xbox's and TVs in the house), and some network services (DNS, DHCP). I built this box to have lots of storage with moderate CPU power. It has five hard drives in it, that total 7TB of storage (but with RAID mirroring, I think the available storage is 4 TB). It also has several strong, loud fans in it, but since this sits in a closet I don't have to hear it.

We also have a Mac Mini (early 2009) that is my wife's primary computer. It is in the kitchen at her desk and she uses it for email/web browsing, plus tracking our finances in Quicken. We also have over a decade's worth of photos and music on it (iPhoto and iTunes). We're often both using computers at the same time, so sharing a computer wouldn't work.

We have a Lenovo Ideapad (Pentium B940) that we bought two years ago. It was going to be my main computer at home, but the kids soon discovered how cool it was and I found the screen resolution small (720p) when compared to my work laptop. The kids use it a lot, so my daughter was especially fearful once I explained that I had to return my work laptop. Again, sharing it would not work well.

One other piece of hardware we have is a Microsoft Surface RT. It's mine, but I let the kids use it every now and then. I take it to work daily and use it in meetings, which it is great for. The small size, the touch screen, the type cover – great. I'm a heavy OneNote user, so I have it on the Surface as well as my work laptop and the notes sync between the two.

Since I have the Surface, I got to wondering if I really still needed a powerful mobile computer (laptop). As a consultant, I often needed to spin up demos on Virtual Machines, but I don't need to do that anymore. Nor do I need to have a good computer ready for when the client doesn't have a machine for me.

SO, after much thinking I decided to build a desktop computer for my own use. I built a machine that has much more power than if I had spent the same amount of money on a laptop. I also get the ability to upgrade any piece of it I need to over the next few years, pretty much the opposite of a laptop (I only ever upgraded RAM and hard drives in a laptop).

I did a bunch of research (Tom's Hardware guide) and bought the following:

  • AMD A8-5500 Trinity 3.2GHz Quad-Core APU (CPU + GPU)
  • ASRock FM2A85X Extreme6 motherboard
  • Corsair XMS3 8GB DDR3 1600 RAM
  • Samsung 840 Series 120GB SATA III SSD
  • Fractal Design Define R4 Mid Tower Case
  • Rosewill Fortress Series 550W power supply
  • ViewSonic 23" LED monitor
  • Logitech wireless keyboard
  • Microsoft Wireless Mobile Mouse 4000

One of my design goals was to have a quiet computer, since it'll be sitting in my office and not in a closet. I also wanted a moderately powerful computer that I could upgrade, so I went middle of the road on CPU, but picked a newer design/socket so I can still get upgrades later.

The case and power supply were a little more than I would normally pay, but that was the trade off to get a quiet computer – the case has sound dampening styrofoam and the power supply is highly energy efficient (so I don't need loud fans running to cool it down).

When it came to the processor, I am probably just sentimental about AMD. I do think you get more power per dollar from them, on the low end. If my budget was larger, I would have gone with an Intel Core i7.

I made a huge trade off when it came to storage – only 120GB (our low end Lenovo laptop has 500GB), but I wanted the speed of a solid state drive (SSD). Not just any SSD, but these new Samsung 840 series drives, that have incredible IOP numbers. One of the first upgrades I'll do is probably add something like a 2 or 3TB standard hard drive, but for the OS, I wanted an SSD.

I ordered almost everything from Newegg and put it all together a couple of days ago. So far, I like it. I may miss having a laptop in the future, but for now I'm good.

          The American People Are The Number One Target: "They Are Tightening The Screws"   

Authored by Jeremiah Johnson (Nom de plume of a retired Green Beret of the United States Army Special Forces ) via SHTFplan.com,

A little more than a week ago it was announced that Whole Foods was bought by Amazon.com for just under $14 billion.  One of the major problems with this is that Jeff Bezos, the head of Amazon has deep ties with the CIA and the Federal government.

Wal-Mart being fully in the government’s pocket and now Whole Foods brought under thumb as well, how much longer before Kissinger’s “Food as a Weapon” principle is brought to bear?  A good article was just released by Jon Rappaport entitled Buy your food from the CIA: Amazon buys Whole Foods, that is worth reading.

As if that connection is not nefarious enough, there is more: it appears a new cloud technology is being produced for the CIA from…you guessed it…none other than the CIA, as is excerpted here:

The intelligence community is about to get the equivalent of an adrenaline shot to the chest. This summer, a $600 million computing cloud developed by Amazon Web Services for the Central Intelligence Agency over the past year will begin servicing all 17 agencies that make up the intelligence community. If the technology plays out as officials envision, it will usher in a new era of cooperation and coordination, allowing agencies to share information and services much more easily and avoid the kind of intelligence gaps that preceded the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.

 

“The Details About the CIA’s Deal with Amazon,” - www.theatlantic.com    6/17/17

Guess the data center that ran taxpayers billions that is in Utah is not enough, nor the fusion centers in every state.  Did you like “…a new era of cooperation and coordination…” between the friendly agencies?  And all to “avoid intelligence gaps,” just for your protection, right?

Wrong.

They are tightening the screws, little by little, while they refine all the control mechanisms and place that security web over their number one target: the American people. 

They are taking control of the food supply incrementally.  Water?  Yes, here in Montana, the state just sent out a form for property owners to declare their water rights…as the CKST (Confederated Kootenai &Salish Tribes) Water Compact was passed into law in Montana in 2014.  Actions will be taken within the next two years.

As enumerated in other articles, Montana kicked in $3 million after the liberals in the state House and Senate, as well as the liberal governor, Bullock (D, MT) signed the water compact into law.  The shortfall is $8 million, as the total state commitment was $11 million.  They are just waiting for the Senate to ratify this as a Federal treaty, and then they can (ostensibly on “behalf” of the Indian Tribes) place meters on everyone’s wells…off of the reservation…and “manage” the water on behalf of the Indian Tribes…enforced by DHS.

This is a small slice of the country as a whole.  They are following full speed ahead with the Agenda 21 Directive to take over everyone’s food, water, land…everything.  A war will surely enable them to throw the Executive Order 13603 into action to confiscate and control every resource in the United States, including human labor…slave labor, to be precise.  Incrementally they place these laws into effect, and the stultified public, thinking only of the next barbeque and fireworks party is dumbed down into inactivity.

There’s enough going on in the international arena that is capturing everyone’s attention, such as North Korea’s missile tests and threats, China’s aggressive South China Sea/Senkaku islands maneuvering, and the Syrian debacle unfolding with the U.S. ratcheting up the tough-talk of blaming Russia and Iran for any “Syrian chemical attack” that comes along.  Russia also just deployed a new satellite, and there is the possibility that in a televised broadcast, he sent out a message to “sleeper” agent in the West.  See the article by Stefan Stanford entitled Vladimir Putin sends message to ‘Russian Sleeper Agents’ in West as Russia Launches Top Secret Military Satellite.

“Hammer and Anvil” usually refers to a military maneuver to crush an enemy force between two friendly elements.  This maneuver is being employed here and now, as well: either crush the United States and enslave its people domestically, with an economic collapse or civil war, or just initiate a war with another country and enslave the citizenry afterward.  Either way, they are pushing their agenda forward each day.  It is just a matter of time to find out which of the two vehicles…international war or domestic tyranny…that they will employ to obtain their globalist and totalitarian objectives.

          Nieuwsbrief-artikelen - BRAIN, HBP en hoofdpijn   
Soms zijn de wetenschappelijke uitdagingen zo groot en kostbaar dat een gezamenlijke inspanning noodzakelijk is. Dan komt big science om de hoek kijken. Goede voorbeelden van dergelijke grote wetenschappelijke en technologische ondernemingen in het verleden zijn het Apollo-programma (1961-1972)  om een mens op de maan te laten landen en het menselijk-genoom-project (1990-2003) om de structuur van het menselijke DNA op te helderen. In de categorie van big science vallen ook de enkele jaren geleden uit de grond gestampte projecten die moeten uitvogelen hoe de hersenen zijn samengesteld en hoe zij functioneren.
 
Het is boeiend te zien hoe bij het hersenonderzoek de big science aanpak in de Verenigde Staten en in Europa verschilt. In de VS kondigde president Obama in april 2013 het ambitieuze NIH BRAIN Initiative aan. NIH en BRAIN staan voor National Institutes of Health en Brain Research through Advancing Innovative Neurotechnologies. Een jaar lang overlegde een werkgroep intensief met de tien instituten en onderzoekscentra van de NIH. De wetenschappers zelf formuleerden de doelstellingen in het document BRAIN 2025: A Scientific Vision. BRAIN richt zich op het ontwikkelen en toepassen van innovatieve technologieën voor het maken van een dynamisch beeld van de hersenen in actie. Dat gebeurt door het bieden van de noodzakelijke kennisbank aan onderzoekers die op zoek zijn naar nieuwe methoden voor behandeling, genezing en zelfs het voorkomen van hersenafwijkingen. De begroting voor dertien jaar is 4,5 miljard dollar. Voor 2017 is waarschijnlijk 195 miljoen dollar beschikbaar. BRAIN is in 2014 gestart, loopt naar tevredenheid en kenmerkt zich door grote transparantie.
 
Hoe anders is het in Europa dat uiteraard niet kon achterblijven. De Europese Unie doet aan big science via de zogenaamde Flagship Projects. In begin 2013 koos de Europese Unie als een van de zes Flagship Projects het HBP, het Human Brain Project. De start van het HBP was een soort veredelde onemanshow waarbij alles draaide om één wetenschapper, de in Zuid-Afrika geboren en in Zwitserland wonende Israëliër Henry Markram (54 jaar). Hij werd in 1998 benoemd tot senior scientist aan het prestigieuze Weizmann Institute of Science in Israel. In het begin van deze eeuw was Markram een goed bekend staande wetenschapper. Zijn bevlogenheid en drang om de 86 miljard neuronen en 100 triljoen synapsen in een wiskundig model te stoppen en op een supercomputer te simuleren, werden hem ingegeven door het feit dat zijn zoon autistisch is. Dat staat te lezen in het artikel ‘Why the Human Brain Project went wrong – and how to fix it’ dat Scientific Americain in oktober 2015 publiceerde.
 
Tijdens zijn TED talk ‘A brain in a supercomputer’ in 2009 beweerde Markram dat binnen tien jaar de simulatie van het volledige brein op een supercomputer mogelijk was. Hij sloot zelfs niet uit dat het dan mogelijk moest zijn bewustzijn te simuleren. Hij claimde ook dat een dergelijke wiskundig hersenmodel fundamentele doorbraken zou opleveren zoals op simulatie gebaseerde ontdekkingen van geneesmiddelen, een beter begrip van afwijkingen zoals Alzheimer en de vervanging van bepaalde vormen van dierenexperimenten. Geen wonder dat, ondanks het scepticisme van veel wetenschappers over de wel erg hoge verwachtingen, de bureaucraten van de Europese Unie onder de indruk waren. Wie wil er geen einde aan dierproeven en Alzheimer? In 2013 zegden zij Markram ruim een miljard euro toe om in tien jaar tijd zijn doelen te bereiken. Het Human Brain Project was geboren.
 
Daarna ging het mis. Een boeiend en vooral kritisch verslag van wat waar waarom mis ging staat in het artikel ‘The laborious delivery of Markram’s brainchild’ van Leonid Schneider op zijn website For better science. Schneider is een oud biomedisch wetenschapper die nu -zoals hijzelf stelt - als  onafhankelijk wetenschapsjournalist strijdt voor reproduceerbaarheid, oprechtheid en rechtvaardigheid in wetenschappelijk onderzoek. Schneider zet Markram weg als een megalomane narcist die politici, bureaucraten en helaas ook wetenschapsjournalisten in Europa met een gebrek aan kennis van levenswetenschappen wist te verleiden met onwetenschappelijke science fictionachtige vergezichten. Markram, die tegenwoordig hoogleraar is aan de École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL), bestuurde HBP als een absoluut vorst. Hij controleerde alle geldstromen die vooral uitkwamen bij het onderzoek van hemzelf en zijn partners. Op een gegeven moment werd het de wetenschappelijke gemeenschap te gortig. In 2014 schreven 800 wetenschappers een ‘Open message to the Europeaan Comission concerning te Human Brain Project’. De bezorgde neurowetenschappers vroegen de Europese Commissie het HBP te herzien en pleitten voor de vernieuwing van zowel de wetenschappelijke als de bestuurlijke aanpak. Omdat men bang was dat de EC zou beslissen de geldkraan voor het HBP dicht te draaien zou het in de praktijk moeten gaan om het verleggen van de geldstromen.
 
Dit jaar is het HBP gereviseerd. De coördinatie is nog wel in handen van het EPFL, maar Markram is nog ‘slechts’ verantwoordelijk voor een van de twaalf deelprojecten. Er zijn nu een Stakeholder Board met onder andere Rob Heinsbroek van het NWO, een Science and Infrastructure Board en een Directorate. De financiering is geregeld via het Framework Partnership Agreement. De tweede fase van twee jaar is op 1 april jl. begonnen en een week geleden is het budget van 89 miljoen euro goedgekeurd. De nieuwe aanpak lijkt meer op de wijze waarop de Amerikaanse tegenhanger BRAIN is georganiseerd. Er wordt zelfs voorzichtig gepraat over samenwerking tussen BRAIN en HBP 2.0. Het is te hopen dat de EC iets van het echec van de valse start van het HBP heeft geleerd en in de toekomst beter in staat zal zijn big science projecten in goede banen te leiden.

As an addendum, I might add, that Steve Jobs never got to preside over an era where Apple's products every truly matured.

Jobs's initial foray as Apple CEO was during the heady, early days of personal computing with things moving very rapidly. Everything was being invented at that time, the whole language of wysiwyg computing and consumer hardware. Its hard to believe he was out of the company by the time the Macintosh was less than a year and half old.

After 12 years in the wild (and not a whole lot of success) while observing the personal computer market mature from afar, he returned to an Apple that had become fat and unfocussed, with literally hundreds of products skus. Trimming the fat there was likely easy for him - the company had little choice if they wanted to survive. But he made it clear early that he wasn't as interested in the Mac - as what would come next.

He spearheaded the refocussing of the Mac as an internet device, and then added a portable music player and online content store - which was likely just a test bed for the concepts that arrived with the iPhone and later iPod. Like the earlier Apple era, they were heady days of rapid innovation - massive change, new concepts, and a wholesale reshaping of what computing meant.

From the iMac to iPhone was less than 9 years - about the same time as Jobs had spent developing Apple the first time through.

I think he moved computers firmly into the "appliance" category. Simpler, closed, personal computing devices, with many of the same consumer complaints.

It wasn't long after that his health declined. In a way he seemed to exist just long enough to push things in his direction.

It's unclear if he would have been as successful once these markets had matured. The signs were there - he was attacked for "just repeating" the iPhone with the iPad, and he seemed to suffer under the consumer backlash from the growing consumer customer base, with the various product launch "gates", feuds with the tech press, and in the end Apple didn't really "solve" TV.

          Power BI User Security   

Power BI continues to evolve with new features! As previously mentioned, Power BI can easily be integrated into your Dynamics CRM/365 org with the use of tiles. Recently, they have introduced a feature which allows you to display an entire Power BI Dashboard in your Dynamics 365 org. With these features, you may have concerns about user security. For instance, will my Dynamics 365 security roles limit what data users can see? To put it simply, the answer is “No”. But keep reading to find out how you can apply security!

 

Power BI User Security overview

Power BI is a tool that allows companies to display visuals of their data from multiple applications. For this reason, it would be difficult for the service to attempt to understand the underlying security structure behind each source. So how do you apply end user security? Like other applications, Power BI offers its own security features which you can easily apply to the entire dashboard and datasets. As previously mentioned, you can select which users to share your Dashboards to. Most noteworthy, it offers a feature called Row Level Security, or “RLS”, which can be applied to each dataset.

 

Row Level Security

At a high level, RLS involves a two-step process:

1. Your power user or admin can manage roles within the Power BI Desktop app to apply to your tables. Not seeing this feature? Make sure you have downloaded the latest version of the Power BI Desktop.

 

 

 

In this example, I’ve created two roles and applied a DAX expression to each. The DAX expression is used to filter data for each role. Your power user or admin can then apply each role to your Tables.

 

 

The SalesRep role simply filters data based on Record Owner of the source data = the logged in Power BI user:

 

 

 

The SalesManager role filters data based on Record Owner’s Manager = the logged in Power BI user:

 

 

 

2. Once the report is published to the Power BI Service, your power user or admin can apply the roles for each dataset.

 

 

Select the dataset -> Security:

 

 

Add users to each role:

 

 

 

When sharing a Dashboard that utilizes RLS behind it’s datasets, the end users will see only what their Power BI role allows. This works whether the Power BI user is viewing the Dashboard from within Power BI or within an external application, such as Dynamics 365.

 

For more information on RLS, check out this blog on Power BI’s site.

“What is the Cloud?” The answer isn’t entirely clear, but most firms have at least some presence in the Cloud today. In fact, many would say they have a “Cloud-first strategy.” But what, exactly, does that mean?

Why are financial services firms moving to the Cloud?

Companies move to the Cloud for many reasons. For some, reducing costs is the driver; for others, the goal is to gain agility with flexible compute availability. For larger firms, , the primary focus is split between cost reduction, being market-ready faster, and bettering the financial balance that exists between IT operations costs and helping the core business run smoothly. For some smaller organizations, the Cloud allows for the ability to take advantage of services available with companies like Microsoft that they likely would not be capable of building or running alone. For many of these companies, there are tremendous challenges associated with serving the increasing expectations of consumers and regulators while also battling with decreased resources and ever tighter margins.

For many organizations, a move to the Cloud shifts the responsibility of proving compliance to regulators (like FINNRA or ESMA) to the Cloud provider. In taking advantage of PaaS (Platform-as-a-Service) for example, many firms have shifted the risks of hosting customer data and the requirement for proving compliance into Microsoft’s court and have, therefore, made it “their problem” to adhere to appropriate controls and audit.

Cloud providers, along with their managed services partners, truly provide the opportunity to enable Financial Services organizations to achieve more with lower cost and less lead-time, while also reducing the significant costs an in-house IT department brings. In addition, all are now benefiting from the sole focus of Cloud providers’ partnerships, which is to protect their customers’ assets in their hosted Clouds.

However, many firms worry about other issues when it comes to going to the cloud. However, they are often not really issues at all. Here are 3 examples:

Non-Issue #1: Where is My Data?

One of the greatest obstacles faced by Financial Services organizations is also one of the most challenging to solve: where exactly is the data? What laws are applicable to data that is stored in the Cloud where it is hosted in one country, but available for use in another country? For many organizations, the opinion is that data stored within the Cloud is not secure—a major wall that they are not quite willing to cross.

Fortunately, Financial Services is currently benefiting from the path that Retail and Distribution sectors have made when it comes to the Cloud. Over the past decade, Retail has had to deal with the very real shift from brick-and-mortar storefronts to purely digital channels. They have also had to cope with putting their customer data right out in the Cloud, because that is where their customers were! Distribution had to find ways to operate through the entire sales cycle to satisfy end customers who were ordering, paying for, shipping, and returning items—all online. Add to that, they had to handle thousands of payment transactions happening every second on the public internet. Data residency was at the very center of everything they did due to tax, shipping, and order fulfillment requirements.

Microsoft Azure lets you maintain ownership of your data. Your data on Azure belongs to you, therefore you have control over where you choose to have it stored and how it gets securely accessed and deleted which is a key differentiator with Microsoft’s Azure Public Cloud platform. Many key SaaS (Software-as-a-Service) products available from Microsoft allow you to configure your setup of the service and then define where data for that service will “live”. Through the appropriate choices and configurations, you can ensure that your data remains in the region of your choosing. You can define where data is stored and from where it gets accessed, however you cannot control how that data is replicated within the backbone of Azure.

With PaaS (Platform-as-a-Service) and with IaaS (Infrastructure-as-a-Service), you can clearly define where your data gets stored by means of Azure Storage and Storage Accounts. You can choose from configurations like Locally Redundant Storage (LRS), in which Azure maintains three distinct copies of your data all in a single data center within a single region (thereby protecting your data from normal hardware failures but not from that of a single data center). You could also choose a configuration like Zone Redundant Storage (ZRS), wherein Azure maintains three copies of your data in two or three facilities, existing within a single region or over two regions. Or, you could opt for Geo-Redundant Storage (GRS). This option maintains six copies of your data, three times within a primary region and three times within a secondary region that is hundreds of miles from your primary region. The point being, you define where your data gets stored in Azure which helps reduce your concerns about the location of your data.

Non-Issue #2: What If I need Local Data Storage?

With sovereignty and data residency concerns all over the world, many organizations are still wanting to store their data locally. If the very idea of having your data beyond your control and housed in someone else’s data center is your concern, Microsoft Azure’s redefined concept of the Hybrid Cloud will likely lessen, if not entirely eliminate, these data residency concerns.

A Hybrid Cloud is, quite simply, a computing environment that combines a Public Cloud and a Private Cloud thereby allowing the sharing of data and applications between them effortlessly. Hybrid Cloud provides an organization the ability to scale its on-premises infrastructure up so that the Public Cloud can handle any overflow without giving third party datacenters the access to their full data. Organizations can harness the power of the Public Cloud for the basic and non-sensitive tasks while still keeping critical and sensitive data on the premises.

Non-Issue #3: What About Certification and Compliance Requirements?

Following the 2008 global financial crisis, many of the most stringent rules regarding asset ownership and coverage have made financial services organizations cautious about moving data to the Cloud.

Whatever the concerns have been, be they regulations or certain commercial or financial terms, Microsoft is making great strides and helping bridge the gaps with major industries and organizations. Microsoft Azure is one of the most compliant and comprehensively certified Public Clouds that exist, with an extensive list of offerings that continues to grow.

In addition, Microsoft has also developed its Microsoft Trust Center. This is a center dedicated to supporting customers that are leveraging the Public Cloud from Microsoft. The Microsoft Trust Center provides resources for information on how Microsoft sustains control over its list of offerings, how it interacts with your data and your assets, and it provides materials for legal entities that are seeking to better understand ownership and liability. For more detailed information, read the Microsoft Trust Center for Financial Services page.

What Does This All Mean to Your Firm?

The advantage provided between the Public Cloud and on-premises solutions is evident in terms of cost, in terms of driving innovation on hosting, and also in terms of financial stability. The Hybrid Cloud provides a solid solution that is designed to make transitioning to the Cloud easier for Financial Services organizations, providing a sense of control over what is stored and accessed where, and at a pace that feels comfortable.

Easily take advantage of innovative solutions for less sensitive data-needs within the Public Cloud, while keeping key systems and more sensitive data on premises, AND operate the solutions seamlessly together. Organizations can operate securely and maintain compliance in their highly regulated fields, while trusting that Microsoft is operating within the same focus.

Either in the beginning of your transformation or once you are already running in the Cloud, making the move to the Cloud means that you require a strong partner that can help you get there. A thorough understanding of all of your choices around data residency, as well as knowledge of your requirements around data retention and back-up strategies can often be a balancing act between cost and requirement. Let the Cloud experts of AKA help you through our Cloud Strategy Roadmap offering. We can assist you in better refining your Cloud Strategy and establishing a plan that makes sense for you.

Considering a more comprehensive design and the possibility of implementing a Hybrid Cloud? Then you need to know the right design and the right solution that will keep your sensitive data secure while still being able to take complete advantage of the elastic compute to drive innovation in the Cloud. AKA’s Cloud Foundational Services offering will assist you with your Azure Hybrid Cloud set-up, making the right decisions, and within weeks will have you reaping the benefits of Native Cloud capabilities.

          Big pharma turns to artificial intelligence to speed drug discovery, GSK signs deal   

By Ben Hirschler

LONDON (Reuters) - The world's leading drug companies are turning to artificial intelligence to improve the hit-and-miss business of finding new medicines, with GlaxoSmithKline unveiling a new $43 million deal in the field on Sunday.

Other pharmaceutical giants including Merck & Co, Johnson & Johnson and Sanofi are also exploring the potential of artificial intelligence (AI) to help streamline the drug discovery process.

The aim is to harness modern supercomputers and machine learning systems to predict how molecules will behave and how likely they are to make a useful drug, thereby saving time and money on unnecessary tests.

AI systems already play a central role in other high-tech areas such as the development of driverless cars and facial recognition software.

"Many large pharma companies are starting to realise the potential of this approach and how it can help improve efficiencies," said Andrew Hopkins, chief executive of privately owned Exscientia, which announced the new tie-up with GSK.

Hopkins, who used to work at Pfizer, said Exscientia's AI system could deliver drug candidates in roughly one-quarter of the time and at one-quarter of the cost of traditional approaches.

The Scotland-based company, which also signed a deal with Sanofi in May, is one of a growing number of start-ups on both sides of the Atlantic that are applying AI to drug research. Others include U.S. firms Berg, Numerate, twoXAR and Atomwise, as well as Britain's BenevolentAI.

"In pharma's eyes these companies are essentially digital biotechs that they can strike partnerships with and which help feed the pipeline," said Nooman Haque, head of life sciences at Silicon Valley Bank in London.

"If this technology really proves itself, you may start to see M&A with pharma, and closer integration of these AI engines into pharma R&D."

STILL TO BE PROVEN

It is not the first time drugmakers have turned to high-tech solutions to boost R&D productivity.

The introduction of "high throughput screening", using robots to rapidly test millions of compounds, generated mountains of leads in the early 2000s but notably failed to solve inefficiencies in the research process.

When it comes to AI, big pharma is treading cautiously, in the knowledge that the technology has yet to demonstrate it can successfully bring a new molecule from computer screen to lab to clinic and finally to market.

"It's still to be proven, but we definitely think we should do the experiment," said John Baldoni, GSK's head of platform technology and science.

Baldoni is also ramping up in-house AI investment at the drugmaker by hiring some unexpected staff with appropriate computing and data handling experience - including astrophysicists.

His goal is to reduce the time it takes from identifying a target for disease intervention to finding a molecule that acts against it from an average 5.5 years today to just one year in future.

"That is a stretch. But as we've learnt more about what modern supercomputers can do, we've gained more confidence," Baldoni told Reuters. "We have an obligation to reduce the cost of drugs and reduce the time it takes to get medicines to patients."

Earlier this year GSK also entered a collaboration with the U.S. Department of Energy and National Cancer Institute to accelerate pre-clinical drug development through use of advanced computational technologies.

The new deal with Exscientia will allow GSK to search for drug candidates for up to 10 disease-related targets. GSK will provide research funding and make payments of 33 million pounds ($43 million), if pre-clinical milestones are met.

($1 = 0.7682 pounds)

          WOA, Dude   

Originally posted on: http://geekswithblogs.net/andrewbrust/archive/2012/02/10/woa-dude.aspx

This was a big week for Windows 8 news (given the relative secrecy around the whole project).  At the beginning of the week we learned that the Consumer Preview (fka the "Beta") of Windows 8 will be released at the very end of the month in concert with the Mobile World Congress conference in Barcelona (MWC).  Then, just yesterday, Windows and Windows Live Division President Steven Sinofsky uploaded an 8600+ word post to the Building Windows 8 blog detailing Microsoft's plans for Windows on ARM (i.e. Windows for devices using the same low-power processor designs used in virtually all smartphone and tablet devices today).  It's probably worthwhile to deconstruct these two developments a little, as I think they are two sides of the same coin.

The first thing to note is that Microsoft launched the Beta of Windows 7 at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in January, 2009.  But for Windows 8 in 2012, Redmond decided to wait until February and do it at the MWC instead.  Part of the reasoning behind this may have been that the Beta wasn't ready in early January, but I think another part, or maybe all, of the reasoning is based on Microsoft's understanding that PCs are going mobile.  Perhaps Microsoft doesn't view where we are as the "post-PC" era, but that really comes down to semantics, as the tablet-style devices that Microsoft continues to call PCs seem to be the "hero devices" for the new version of the Windows operating system.  Hence the showcase at MWC for Windows 8 and this week's white-paper-as-blog-post on Windows on ARM (WOA).

The WOA news was pretty big, so let's just cut to the chase: WOA will feature a Windows desktop mode, but the only things you'll be able to run there are applets that are part of Windows itself, Internet Explorer 10 (which, arguably, is one of those applets anyway) and the forthcoming version of Office, codenamed "Office 15."  There won't be other apps there, and browser plug-ins, as Sinofsky revealed in his interview with All Things D's Ina Fried, will not offer a workaround...because even the desktop version of IE 10 in WOA won't support them.  That means no Flash on WOA and no Silverlight on WOA either, at all.

Is this nuts?  Honestly, I don't think so.  If you read Sinofsky's post, you'll see there was some pretty methodical thinking behind this, and most of it has to do with power efficiency and reliability of the WOA experience.  Windows Desktop applications are built with an assumption of always-on AC power, or the laptop-style DC power that emulates it.  Desktops and laptops aren't like phones.  They're not devices; they're machines.  People use them as machines, people expect them to work like machines, and developers build machine-oriented apps for them.  That's not a bad thing...in fact, it's required.

But tablets are devices.  Interactions with them are fast and discrete, like a stand-up meeting rather than an all-morning whiteboard session.  Get in, get out, and go forth.  That's why WOA will be installed on the device when you buy it.  That's why all updates will come from the Windows Update system, and why all apps will come from the Windows Store.  That makes sense.  WOA products are different products, and will face different expectations.  In 2002, Bill Gates wrote one of his watershed all-personnel memos, titled Trustworthy Computing.  While much of the memo was focused on security, Gates had this to say toward the conclusion of the memo: "Systems will have to become self-managing and inherently resilient. We need to prepare now for the kind of software that will make this happen, and we must be the kind of company that people can rely on to deliver it."  Ten years later, Windows 8, and especially Windows on ARM, seem poised to fulfill this goal.

So why call WOA devices PCs?  While part of this is due to the politics and semantics I alluded to above, I think another part of it has to do with productivity.  Microsoft sees PCs, in addition to being leisure devices, as things (machines or devices) with which people get work done.  And that's why, I believe, Microsoft is allowing one non-OS application suite to run in the Desktop mode: Office.  Take a look at this video with Scott Seiber, featured in Sinofsky's post - particularly at the 3:46 time marker - and you'll see what I mean.  I haven't used Office 15, so I don't know how productive it really is with touch, but it looks good.  I have used iWork on the iPad, and I know that, for me at least, it's not productive at all.

So here's where we are with Windows 8:  The Intel platform will offer a full Desktop mouse-and-keyboard experience and will feature a split personality, allowing Metro-style apps to run as well, sometimes with touch.   Windows on ARM devices will offer the Metro-style touch-first experience first-and foremost, and still provide the productivity of Office without forcing users to switch to a machine, like the iPad does today.  Intel PCs for Windows 8 will be machines with device capabilities.  Windows on ARM "PCs" will be devices with "in-a-pinch" Windows desktop capabilities, including the platform's crucial desktop productivity apps, optimized for touch and power conservation.

I don't know if Microsoft can beat Apple with this approach, but it looks like the only logical way forward.  A logical approach plus a lot of perseverance can be a winning strategy.  It has been with a great number of Microsoft's other products.


          AppleSoft Basics   

Originally posted on: http://geekswithblogs.net/andrewbrust/archive/2011/08/25/applesoft-basics.aspx

There are plenty of posts and articles out there that provide retrospectives of, and pay homage to, Steve Jobs’ tenure as Apple CEO.  I’m not an expert on Apple or Jobs, and this is not one of those posts.

But Steve Jobs’ resignation from the CEO post does mark the end of a related era I know something about.  It’s the era that Bill Gates and Steve Jobs defined together.  And now that both of them have ended their CEO runs and receded to roles as Chairmen of the Board, it’s important to consider just how much these two men did together to pioneer the industry we now all work in and define ourselves by. 

Yes, I identify the era with both men, despite many seeing them as perennial adversaries who led companies that approach computing very differently. The fact is that the two men, and the two companies, have a long and storied shared heritage.  It dates back to 1977 when 8-bit computing became hot and when Microsoft BASIC ran on each leading machine of that time.  I started working with computers a year later, at the age 12.  I didn’t own an Apple II, but I used one at school, and remember distinctly the presence of Microsoft BASIC on that machine, albeit branded “AppleSoft BASIC.”  It’s a fitting name, and drives home an underpinning to this industry that many don’t realize or have chosen to forget.

I could pontificate some more on that, but it’s more effective for people to hear it in context.  With that in mind, I recommend to all as required viewing a 2007 interview of Jobs and Gates by Walt Mossberg and Kara Swisher at that year’s All Things D conference.  Here’s a link to the video:
http://t.co/c0aclsd
It doesn't want to play full-screen, but your browser's zoom function should mitigate this problem.

Watch the full length interview video if you can; it’s really quite stunning.  It shows how much more these two companies have in common than they do anything in conflict, and how much the two men share in career history and mutual respect.  There are also humbling ironies here, including numerous references to how much bigger MS is than Apple, and Jobs talking about how Apple gets excited if its market share increases by 1 point.  (Another irony is that it's a Flash video and won't play on an iPad.)

Best of all though, if you advance to the 37:00 mark, you will hear Bill Gates speak (with Jobs politely listening) of a future where people will have multiple devices, including a tablet (which they will use extensively), a phone ("the device that fits in your pocket") as well a more conventional machine with a screen and keyboard.  Then Jobs adds commentary on how resilient the PC is and how its death has been exaggerated. 

Jobs continues by discussing post-PC devices, illuminating a difference in the two men’s outlooks that is not insignificant.  But by and large, it's as if they are of one philosophy.  In highlighting that broad unity, the interview kicks the whole polarized industry paradigm and leaves it on its ass.  I look at that as just one more valuable contribution to our field. 


          Did Google and HP Thread WP7’s Needle?   

Originally posted on: http://geekswithblogs.net/andrewbrust/archive/2011/08/18/did-google-and-hp-thread-wp7rsquos-needle.aspx

I’m on vacation this week, and I didn’t intend to write a blog post.  But after the sea changes in the mobile computing industry and, ironically, my extra time to ponder it, I really couldn’t stay silent.

In the space of four days, Google may have effectively taken Android “private” and HP seems to have euthanized webOS in public.  It’s really hard to believe all of this is happening.  But we can at least have a go at understanding what it means and what might, or might not, come next for Microsoft as a result.

Hello Moto

On Monday, Google  announced its intention to acquire Motorola Mobility Holdings, the “baby Moto” that makes mobile handsets, tablets and even set top boxes.  Google apparently did this to bulk up its patent portfolio, and thus a credible deterrent against companies suing manufacturers of Android devices for patent infringement. 

All by itself, this move is astonishing.  Because in an apparent move to protect and support Android licensees, Google is acquiring one of the biggest of them and in doing so has almost certainly spooked the others.  More fundamentally, Google is acquiring a company that makes hardware, even though its whole pedigree, and forte, is in monetizing digital assets.  The notion that Google bought a company that makes and sells physical goods, and is happy about that, seems farfetched at best.

Why did Google do the deal?  Well, for one thing, It appears Microsoft was in talks with Motorola too.  If Google was behind Microsoft in the patent arms race before, imagine where it would have been – and where Android would have been – if MS got Moto.  Moto would have gone WP7 (their CEO had just last week announced he was open to the idea) and HTC, Samsung and LG might have been paying Microsoft more in license fees on Android than they would have had to pay to license WP7 directly.  To avoid this, Google has agreed to drop a cool $12.5 billion on a company that I bet it didn’t even want.

Google was caught between the proverbial rock and a hard place…or at least it was scared into thinking so.  Fear isn’t something we see much of from Google, and I don’t think fear-based decisions tend to be good ones.  Case in point: now HTC and Samsung, who are already WP7 OEMs, may feel the need to hedge their bets, by putting more chips on live tiles than little green robots.

HP: webOS Doesn’t Live Here Anymore

Three days later, albeit after the market closed, HP announced that it’s pulling the webOS-based TouchPad tablet off the market, and likewise webOS-based phones.  That was fast!  As I write this, I am still not certain which was on the market longer: HP’s TouchPad or Microsoft’s KIN.  But whereas Redmond killed KIN to make a better play in the smartphone market by focusing on WP7, HP is killing webOS to retreat and withdraw from from that market.

HP seems to have decided to cut its losses and forfeit the whole race to Apple and Google.  There is the chance that HP will try and license webOS to the Android OEMs who feel jilted by Google, and are looking for a port in the storm.  But if you were one of those OEMs, would you license webOS?  And would you be ready to provide the marketing it so badly needs?

Microsoft in the Catbird Seat?

For Microsoft, the timing of all this is incredible.  In the next 2-3 months, Microsoft will release the “Mango” update to Windows Phone and Nokia will release its first Windows Phone handsets, running that very version of the OS.  Meanwhile, in less than four weeks, Microsoft will finally unveil its Windows 8 tablet strategy, at the //build/ conference in Anaheim.

Right now, Microsoft has a smartphone OS that, in terms of features and capabilities, is comeptitive.  What Microsoft needs is kick-butt tablet technology with a strategy to match, and more apps and enthusiastic OEMs for its smartphone.  The //build// conference may very well give them the tablet piece.  Google and HP may have just handed them the phone piece that completes the puzzle.

It’s Microsoft’s To Lose.  But Will it Win?

Microsoft really couldn’t have asked for more.  The situation and timing are ideal.  But that doesn’t mean Microsoft will keep from tripping over its own feet.  Windows Phone has horrible retail presence and uneven, underpowered marketing.  Members of the Windows Phone team, foremost among them Charlie Kindle, have left the company.  And while Windows 8 could be a great tablet OS, Microsoft will also need great tablet hardware out there for it to run on. 

PC OEMs have not shown themselves competitive to Apple in hardware design, and one of the biggest of those OEMs, HP, has even announced that it may spin off its PC division.  Microsoft has seemingly never managed, or heavily influenced, the designs its hardware partners pursue.  That will need to change.  At the very least, Microsoft will need to impose hardware standards for Windows tablets in the same manner as it did for Windows Phones.

Even if that happens, there’s still a lot that could go wrong for Microsoft on the phone and tablet front.  But after the competitor events this week, Microsoft has only itself to blame if things don’t go right.

I really like the look of this tablet, especially the price, I have a wireless Wacom Bamboo Create tablet that I use, and I have the same disconnect that you have. Drawing in one place while looking in another. I have been trying to use my Samsung Note 10 2014 for this, but while the screen is good and the pen is excellent being an android tablet makes for some complications that a windows tablet wouldn't have. I have a Surface Pro, but I simply hate windows 8 with a passion and if I could install Windows 7 on it all would be well. I will have to keep an eye on ebay for one of these and give it a try.

We are a conservative lot when it comes to hiring.  We have always placed a high value on experience and capability.  Our reputation depends on it.  Our team of approximately twenty full-time BizTalk specialists has been growing in recent months, but we need to extend that team further to cope with current and projected demand.  We are looking to employee another two or three people with proven BizTalk Server development and consulting skills, experience of enterprise-level development and the aptitude to work closely with corporate customers.  These people will join the team as full-time employees, working with other members of our team and alongside our wider community of associates.  Most of the BizTalk development we do is team-based and involves EAI and the design and implementation of enterprise service bus capabilities.  We need people with experience and understanding of the full development life-cycle.  If you are looking to take your career beyond development into technical consultancy and leadership, we offer the opportunity to expand your horizons.

As well as BizTalk Server, we have a wider involvement in development on the Azure platform.  We have one team working on one of the largest Azure development projects undertaken in Europe.  We are working closely with Microsoft on early real-world Service Fabric-based development.  We are building our capabilities in BI, BCDR and Azure-based managed services.  Most of our integrations customers have a direct interest in cloud computing and plan to exploit cloud-based approaches alongside more traditional enterprise integration models.  If you want to extend your knowledge and experience of cloud-enabled integration using Azure services such as the service bus and App Service, then consider a career with us.

Solidsoft Reply is part of the greater Reply family, a network of highly specialised companies that  help their customers develop business models to optimise and integrate processes, applications and devices and use new technology and communication paradigms such as Big Data, Cloud Computing, Digital Communication, Internet of Things and Mobile and Social Networking.  Reply operates across Europe and several other regions.  Solidsoft Reply is based in the UK (Basingstoke) and Italy.

It's always exciting when a new application you've worked on goes live. The last couple of weeks have seen the 'soft' launch of a new service offered by the UK government called 'Tell Us Once' (TUO). You can probably guess from the name what the service does. Currently, the service allows UK citizens to inform the government (as opposed to Register Officers, who must still be notified separately) just once of two types of 'change-of-circumstance' event; namely births and deaths. You can go, say, to your local authority contact centre, where an officer will work through a set of screens with you, collecting the information you wish to provide. Then, once the Submit button is clicked, that's it! With your consent, the correct data sets are parcelled up and distributed to wherever they need to go - central and local government departments, public sector agencies such as the DVLA, Identity and Passport Service, etc. No need to write 50 letters!

With my colleagues at SolidSoft , I'm really proud to have been involved with the team that designed and developed this new service. For the past few years, we worked originally on the prototypes and pilots (there was more than one!). Over the last eighteen months or so, we have been engaged in building the national system, and development work in on-going. It's been a journey! The idea is very simple, but as you can imagine, the realisation of that idea is rather more complex. Look for future enhancements to today's service, with the ability to report events on-line from the comfort of your own home and the possible extension of the system to cover additional event types in future.

Interaction with government has just got a whole lot better for UK citizens, and we helped make that happen. It's a pity that I don't intend to have any more children (four is enough!), and I really hope I don't have to report a death in the near future, but if I do, I'll be beating a path to the door of my local council's contact centre in order to 'tell them once'.

          BizTalk Server 2010 R2 Announced   

Originally posted on: http://brustblog.com/archive/2011/12/09/biztalk-server-2010-r2-announced.aspx

Yesterday, Microsoft announced the forthcoming release of BizTalk Server 2010 R2 on the BizTalk Server blog site.  This is advanced notice, given that this new version will ship six months after the release of Windows 8, expected in the second half of next year.  On this basis, we can expect the new version of BizTalk Server to arrive in 2013.  Given the BizTalk team’s previous record of name changes, I wonder if this will eventually be released as BizTalk Server 2013.

Microsoft has been refreshingly open in recent months about their future plans for BizTalk Server.  This strategy has not been without its dangers with some commentators refusing to accept Microsoft’s statements at face value.  However, yesterday’s announcement is entirely in line with everything Microsoft has been saying, both publically and privately, for some time now.  Since the release of BizTalk Server 2004, Microsoft has made little change to the core technology with, of course, the exception of a much re-vamped application packaging approach in BizTalk Server 2006.  Instead, Microsoft chose to put investment into a number of important ‘satellite’ technologies such as EDIFACT/X12/AS2 support, RFID Server, etc.  Maintaining the stability of the core platform has allowed BizTalk Server to emerge as a mature and trusted workhorse in the enterprise integration space with widely available skills in the marketplace.

In terms of its major investments, Microsoft’s focus has long shifted to the cloud.  Microsoft has candidly communicated that, given this focus, they have no current plans to add major new technologies to the BizTalk platform.  In addition, they absolutely have no intention of re-engineering the core BizTalk platform.  In my direct experience in recent months, this last point plays very well to prospective and existing enterprise customers.  It takes us straight to the heart of what most organisations want from an integration server: a ‘known quantity’ with a good track record for dependability, scalability and stability and a significant pool of available technical resource.

The announcement of BizTalk Server 2010 R2 illustrates and illuminates Microsoft’s stated future strategy for the product.  An important part of Microsoft’s platform for enterprise computing, it will continue to be enhanced and extended.  It will match future developments in the Windows platform and new versions of Visual Studio.  However, we should not expect to see any dramatic new developments in the world of BizTalk Server.  Instead, the BizTalk platform will continue to steadily mature further as the world’s best-selling integration server.

One of the big messages of yesterday’s announcement is that BizTalk Server will increasingly support its emerging role in building hybrid solutions that encompass systems and services that reside both on-premises and in the cloud.  At SolidSoft , we are increasingly focused on the design and implementation of cloud-based and hybrid integration solutions.  Integration is challenging, and Azure is a young, fast evolving platform.  Microsoft has discussed at length their vision of Azure within a wider ‘hybrid’ context.  The availability of a tried and tested, mature, on-premises integration server is a vitally important enabler in building hybrid solutions.  Better than that, the announcement makes it clear that, as well as new support for the Azure service bus, BizTalk Server 2010 R2 licensing will be revised to open up new opportunities for hosting the server in the cloud.  This ties in with the push in Azure to embrace more fully the IaaS (infrastructure-as-a-service) model and, perhaps most importantly in the BizTalk space, to reduce or eliminate existing barriers between the on-premises and off-premises worlds.   BizTalk Server and Azure belong together.


          Huge response to on-line AI course   

Originally posted on: http://brustblog.com/archive/2011/08/20/huge-response-to-on-line-ai-course.aspx

Peter Norvig and Sebastian Thrun are offering a free on-line course on AI later this year in conjunction with Stanford University. The course is broadly based on Peter Norvig's book "Artificial Intelligence: A modern Approach" written jointly with Stuart Russell. Along with my colleagues on the Rules Fest committee, we have been following this with interest. In a few days, well over 100,000 people have signed up (112,774 at the time of writing, and still increasing fast). The course broadly overlaps with our natural areas of interest at Rules Fest which is all about the practical application of reasoning technologies in real-world computing. It is very encouraging to us to see the huge interest this course is generating. We will doubtless be contacting Peter, yet again, to see if he will speak at next year's conference (we keep plugging away at this).
 
In another development, we all woke up to the news a couple of days ago that HP, as part of its dramatic change in strategy, has bid almost $11Bn to acquire enterprise search company, Autonomy. Autonomy offers proprietary technology that exploits Bayes theorem, Shannon's information theory and specific forms of SVD to create an intelligent search platform with learning capabilities. Clearly, HP sees this type of technology as playing a major and lucrative role in their future.
 
Some time ago, at an event organised by the excellent BizTalk Users' Group in Sweden, I was asked to do a little crystal ball gazing. I trotted out the line that the next few years will see AI-related and reasoning technologies, formally thought of as esoteric and impractical, find their place at the heart of enterprise computing alongside existing investments in traditional LoB/Back Office applications and integration services. With the advent of cloud computing and platforms such as Azure, we have the horsepower available to make this a practical and feasible possibility for mainstream enterprise computing. AI used to be a dirty word. No longer!

The 183rd day of the year; the concatenation of 183 and 184, 183184 is a perfect square. There are no smaller numbers for which the concatenation of two consecutive numbers is square. (Students might seek the next such pair of numbers. They are small enough to be year dates)

The sum of the first 183 primes minus 183 is prime.

183 is the eighth of the 12 year-days which are perfect totient numbers.  (There are only 57 such numbers under 102). [a perfect totient number is a number that is the sum of it's iterated totients, that is, the number of integers smaller than, and relatively prime to 183 + the number smaller than and less than that result, + ... down to one, "For example, start with 327. Then φ(327) = 216, φ(216) = 72, φ(72) = 24, φ(24) = 8, φ(8) = 4, φ(4) = 2, φ(2) = 1, and 216 + 72 + 24 + 8 + 4 + 2 + 1 = 327 " *Wik

In 1698 Thomas Savery was issued British Letters Patent No.356 for what he called "The Miner's Friend; or an engine to raise water by fire" which was the first application of steam power for pumping water. The steam powered pump had no piston. Two years earlier Savery was issued British Letters Patent No.347 for his invention for "Navigation improved; or the art of rowing ships of all rates in calms with a more easy, swift, and steady motion than oars can." ( which involved paddle-wheels driven by a capstan and which was dismissed by the Admiralty following a negative report by the Surveyor of the Navy,Edmund Dummer.)*TIS*Wik

1779 One of the earliest mentions of blackboards in Colonial America was in a letter from John Taylor, a tutor at Queens College (to become Rutgers University)to a graduate student, John Bogart, that he was asking to take over his classes while Taylor was away on military duties. "I have spoken to Mr. Briton to make a blackboard.." *Kidwell, Hastings, & Roberts; Tools of American Mathematics Teaching.

1944 Grace Hopper meets Howard Aiken for the first time. Here is her description of the meeting:
Until 1944, I had been a thoroughly respectable mathematician. I had never met a digit, and I wanted nothing to do with digits. I came into the computer business in a unique fashion. I was ordered to the Navy Liaison Officer at Harvard. I left Midshipmen School on Friday, and on Monday morning, 2nd July 1944, I reported to the Navy Liaison Officer, Harvard. He took me by the hand, and led me over to an underground laboratory. I had just acquired one-and-a-half stripes. There stood a large object, with three stripes, who took one look at me and said: "Where the hell have you been?" I spluttered, and said that I had had two days' travel time. He said: "For the last three months." I said: "Midshipmen's School", and he said he had told them it was not necessary. By this time I was practically cowering, of course, but with one-and-a-half stripes, I would stand up straight and listen to three stripes. He waved his hand and said: "That's a computing machine." I said, "Yes, Sir." What else could I say? He said he would like to have me compute the coefficients of the arc tangent series, for Thursday. Again, what could I say? "Yes, Sir." I did not know what on earth was happening, but that was my meeting with Howard Hathaway Aiken. In the long run, he taught me one very important thing. One can always make a mistake once, but it must not be made a second time. That was a very good thing to learn. He also flatly informed me that he had told the Bureau of Naval Personnel not to send him a female. At this point, and over the next few months, I learned another lesson. I could have taken the attitude of showing him, and making him take that back. Instead, I decided it would be far better to learn to work with him. This is a lesson we all need to learn: of not showing people, but learning to work with people. It certainly made a difference in getting things done in the computer field.

2011 Simon Chua, 58, received Australia's B. H. Neumann Award for pioneering efforts in training and honing the talent of young Filipino mathematicians for the past 15 years.
The Australian Mathematics Trust (AMT) bestowed the award to Chua on July 2, 2011. The B. H. Neumann Awards are presented annually for "important contributions over many years to the enrichment of mathematics learning in Australia and its region," according to the AMT.
The award is named in honor of Bernhard H. Neumann, the so-called father of Australian mathematics, who “provided outstanding leadership, support and encouragement for mathematics and the teaching of mathematics at all levels."
Chua, who is president and co-founder of the Mathematics Trainers Guild-Philippines (MTG), is the first Asian to receive the award.
Through the MTG, Filipino students have won numerous medals in math competitions abroad including in China, United States, Singapore, Thailand, Hong Kong and Indonesia.
In 2006, Chua became the first Filipino to win the Paul Erdos Award from the World Federation of National Mathematics Competitions. *MathDL




BIRTHS

1622 Rene-Francoise de Sluse (2 July 1622 – 19 March 1685) born. 1830 “It is true that Fourier is of the opinion that the principle object of mathematics is the public utility and the explanation of natural phenomena; but a scientist like him ought to know that the unique object of science is the honor of the human spirit and on this basis a question of [the theory of] numbers is worth as much as a question about the planetary system.” Jacobi to Legendre. Big Kline, p. 1037. VFR


1842 George Thom (2 July 1842 in Forgue near Huntly, Scotland - 20 Dec 1916 in Aberdeen, Scotland) graduated from Aberdeen and then became Principal of Doveton College in Madras, India. He returned to Scotland as Vice-Principal of Chanonry School Aberdeen and then became Rector of Dollar Institution (later to become Dollar Academy). He held this post for 24 years. He was a founder member of the EMS and became the fifth President in 1886. *SAU


1847 Andrew Gray graduated from Glasgow University and was appointed assistant and secretary to Lord Kelvin. He became Professor of Physics at University College Bangor and then returned to Glasgow as Kelvin's successor. He produced many books and papers in both mathematics and physics.*SAU


1852 Birthdate of William Burnside, whose Theory of Groups (1897, 1911) is now a classic. His suspicion that every group of odd order is solvable was proved in 1962 by Walter Feit and John G. Thompson. *VFR He is known mostly as an early contributor to the theory of finite groups. In 1897 Burnside's classic work Theory of Groups of Finite Order was published. The second edition (published in 1911) was for many decades the standard work in the field. A major difference between the editions was the inclusion of character theory in the second.
Burnside is also remembered for the formulation of Burnside's problem (which concerns the question of bounding the size of a group if there are fixed bounds both on the order of all of its elements and the number of elements needed to generate it) and for Burnside's lemma (a formula relating the number of orbits of a permutation group acting on a set with the number of fixed points of each of its elements) though the latter had been discovered earlier and independently by Frobenius and Cauchy.



1862 Sir William Henry Bragg (2 July 1862 – 10 March 1942) was a pioneer British scientist in solid-state physics who was a joint winner (with his son Sir Lawrence Bragg) of the Nobel Prize for Physics in 1915 for research on the determination of crystal structures. During the WW I, Bragg was put in charge of research on the detection and measurement of underwater sounds in connection with the location of submarines. He also constructed an X-ray spectrometer for measuring the wavelengths of X-rays. In the 1920s, while director of the Royal Institution in London, he initiated X-ray diffraction studies of organic molecules. Bragg was knighted in 1920. *TIS

1885 Émile Henriot (2 July 1885 - 1 February 1961) was a French chemist notable for being the first to show definitely that potassium and rubidium are naturally radioactive.
He investigated methods to generate extremely high angular velocities, and found that suitably placed air-jets can be used to spin tops at very high speeds - this technique was later used to construct ultracentrifuges.
He was a pioneer in the study of the electron microscope. He also studied birefringence and molecular vibrations.
He obtained his DSc in physics in 1912 the Sorbonne, Paris, under Marie Curie. *Wik


1906 Hans Bethe, (July 2, 1906 – March 6, 2005) German-born American theoretical physicist who helped to shape classical physics into quantum physics and increased the understanding of the atomic processes responsible for the properties of matter and of the forces governing the structures of atomic nuclei. Bethe did work relating to armour penetration and the theory of shock waves of a projectile moving through air. He studied nuclear reactions and reaction cross sections (1935-38). In 1943, Oppenheimer asked Bethe to be the head of the Theoretical Division at Los Alamos on the Manhattan Project. After returning to Cornell University in 1946, Bethe became a leader promoting the social responsibility of science. He received the Nobel Prize for Physics (1967) for his work on the production of energy in stars. *TIS

1591 Vincenzo Galilei ( c. 1520 – 2 July 1591) Italian, music theorist, lutenist and composer, who as the father of Galileo Galilei, adopted experimentation to prove aspects of acoustics, and may thus have influenced his son, Galileo, away from pure, abstract mathematics and towards making experiments and investigation. Vincenzo's discoveries in acoustics included some of the physics of vibrating strings and columns of air. In particular he was the first to show that the ratio of an interval was proportional to string lengths but varied as the square of the tension applied to the strings and as the cubes of volumes of air. He recognized the superiority of equal tempered tuning and compiled a codex of pieces illustrating the use of all 24 major and minor keys as early as 1584.*TIS


1613 Bartholomeo Pitiscus (August 24, 1561 – July 2, 1613) was a Polish theologian who first coined the word Trigonometry. *SAU Pitiscus achieved fame with his influential work written in Latin, called Trigonometria: sive de solutione triangulorum tractatus brevis et perspicuus (1595, first edition printed in Heidelberg), which introduced the word "trigonometry" to the English and French languages, translations of which had appeared in 1614 and 1619, respectively. It consists of five books on plane and spherical trigonometry. Pitiscus is sometimes credited with inventing the decimal point, the symbol separating integers from decimal fractions, which appears in his trigonometrical tables and was subsequently accepted by John Napier in his logarithmic papers (1614 and 1619).*Wik

1621 Thomas Harriot (Oxford, c. 1560 – London, 2 July 1621) died of a cancerous ulcer on his left nostril. While in America in 1586 he learned to “drink” tobacco smoke from the Indians. This probably makes him the earliest recorded tobacco fatality. He is best known for his contributions to algebra, including the invention of the symbol for less than, \( \lt \) and greater than, \( \gt \) . He might have adopted this symbol from a decoration on an Indian’s back. See C. L. Smith, “On the origin of ‘<’ and ‘>’,” The Mathematics Teacher, 57(1964), 479–481 for a picture of this Indian.*VFR
He also is credited with the mathematical symbol for "therefore" \(\therefore \) His executors posthumously published his Artis Analyticae Praxis on algebra in 1631; Nathaniel Torporley was the intended executor of Harriot's wishes, but Walter Warner in the end pulled the book into shape. It may be a compendium of some of his works but does not represent all that he left unpublished (more than 400 sheets of annotated writing). It isn't directed in a way that follows the manuscripts and it fails to give the full significance of Harriot's writings.*Wik He introduced a simplified notation for algebra and his fundamental research on the theory of equations was far ahead of its time. He was able to solve equations, even with negative or complex roots. However, he published no mathematical work in his lifetime. (Artes analyticae praxis, posthumous, 1631). Especially early in his career, he worked on navigation for his patron Walter Raleigh. Harriot carried out extensive telescopic observations of the satellites of Jupiter and of sunspots. When investigating optics, he discovered the sine law and measured the refractive indices of 13 different substances. He investigated free motion and motion resisted in air, and ballistic curves.*TIS Thomas Harriot was an English mathematician who did outstanding work on the solution of equations, recognising negative roots and complex roots in a way that makes his solutions look almost like a present day solution.*SAU
The solution of quadratic equations by the method of factoring was often referred to as Harriot's method because of his introduction of the method in his writing.
It is not possible today to find Harriot's grave. Although he was buried near the altar of St Christopher le Stocks in London,the church was destroyed in the great fire of 1666. There is a plaque in the entrance hall of the Bank of England, which is close to the site of Harriot's grave. It reproduces the original Latin wording of his epitaph.(p474) An English translation would read:
Stay, traveler, lightly tread;
Near this spot lies all that was mortal
Of that most celebrated man Thomas Harriot.
He was that most learned Harriot . . .
Who cultivated all the sciences and excelled in all . . .
A most studious searcher after truth . . .

1644 William Gascoigne (1612 – 2 July 1644) was an English astronomer, mathematician and maker of scientific instruments from Middleton, Leeds who invented the micrometer. He was one of "nos Keplari" a group of astronomers in the north of England who followed the astronomy of Johannes Kepler which included, Jeremiah Horrocks and William Crabtree. Gascoigne's micrometer is shown at right from a drawing by Hooke. Gascoigne, was working on a Keplerian optical arrangement when a thread from a spider’s web happened to become caught at exactly the combined optical focal points of the two lenses. When he looked through the arrangement Gascoigne saw the web bright and sharp within the field of view. He realized that he could more accurately point the telescope using the line as a guide, and went on to invent the telescopic sight by placing crossed wires at the focal point to define the centre of the field of view. Gascoigne died at the Battle of Marston Moor, Yorkshire, *Wik

1874 Gouverneur Emerson American physician, statistician and agriculturalist who prepared a series of tables of deaths and causes in Philadelphia, during thirty years from 1807. These showed, for example, the excessive mortality of males during childhood. He began practice in Philadelphia on 4 Aug 1820, where yellow fever broke out a few weeks later, with 73 deaths by that fall. Emerson recorded cases, dates, locations, and outcomes. He concluded no current medical treatments was especially effective. When smallpox reappeared there, with 325 deaths in 1824, Emerson drafted a bill for control measures. There were only 6 cases of smallpox in the city in 1825, and 3 in 1826. In retirement, he turned to peach culture, and studied phosphate and guano fertilizers. *TIS

1947 Nikolai Grigorievich Chebotaryov (15 June [O.S. 3 June] 1894 – 2 July 1947) proved his density theorem generalising Dirichlet's theorem on primes in an arithmetical progression*SAU

1963 Seth Barnes Nicholson (November 12, 1891 – July 2, 1963) was an American astronomer best known for discovering four satellites of Jupiter. As a graduate student at the University of California, while photographing the recently- discovered 8th moon of Jupiter with the 36-inch Crossley reflector, he discovered a 9th (1914). During his life career at Mt.Wilson Observatory, he discovered two more Jovian satellites (1938) and the 12th (1951), as well as a Trojan asteroid, and computed orbits of several comets and of Pluto. His main assignment at Mt. Wilson was observing the sun with the 150-foot solar tower telescope, and he produced annual reports on sunspot activity and magnetism for decades. With Edison Pettit, he measured the temperatures of the moon, planets, sunspots, and stars in the early 1920s. *TIS

2002 Daniel Chonghan Hong (3 Mar 1956; 2 Jul 2002 at age 46) Korean theoretical physicist specializing in statistical physics and nonlinear dynamic physics, who with colleague Hugo Caram, originated the void diffusing-void model of granular flow, which is recognized as an effective theoretical treatment for a broad range of dynamical phenomena in granular media. In general, his work ranged from percolation network, viscous fingering, granular flows to traffic equations. He studied and taught in America from 1981, and wrote articles for popular magazines on various topics. He died at the young age of 46 of cardiac arrest. *TIS

          Comment on McLaren confirms Dennis departure by John ( other John)   
It's possible to think that Honda has had some difficulty in getting the partnership working from the start, if you take a assumption that they turned up with a attitude that their engineering is unimpeachable. Both Dennis's departure and his distance from race operations in the years leading up to the partnership inception may be a reciprocal factor in the difficulty experienced by both sides. Japanese are habituated to assuming that the true power of a organisation or government lies behind the throne. You see this manifest in the way senior managers are inclined to take a often unsettling cameo in meetings, by appearing in the middle of the proceedings and silently taking stock in a way that I think is more suited to movie theatre projectionists, or playwrights nervous of the opening night. I personally liked this idea of being a fly on the wall, but I only tried it with my own colleagues and only when they were fully happy with the circumstances and knew I would have been just getting a bit of a better feeling how things were going for them, not dropping in to look for problems or likely to impose anything as a result of this visitation. If who you work with are that comfortable I figured that this habit is a better test of relations and morale than a tool for a manager. I have no idea if this is any more than a now relegated and derided cultural mannerism or if it goes on still. Point is Ron very well could have been considered to be the only power even if he'd deliberately stepped back from the front line. And that could be a problem in practical ways, different ideas about how approval happens would be very difficult for chances are that the Japanese would be second guessing the actual managers in charge for the British effort. Only more conjecture of course. Is any part of the process Honda needed to get working dependant on Mclaren capabilities which might be of less than hoped or expected strength? I'm unclear what state Japanese computing is in outside the national laboratory projects reported widely in supercomputer journals. But British and American people have been leading the field more often than not. And I can assert the ability to work with big computing resources is severely hampered if staff are not exposed to the variety of work they have to manage and use results from a range of different types of system. I have just a theoretical understanding and the relative level facilties installed in the anglo-saxon countries is a advantage not lightly sniffed at, for ideas how much theory diverges from results, look about for reviews of the potential real performance of the hypothetically chart topping Chinese supercomputers. Its a huge difference, just huge. So many reasons could explain why vibration issues arose, to take one example of complex problems experienced. After pondering months of groping in the dark speculation that enlightened us little, what if we were simply running on different floating point math libraries and the data kept on hitting edge cases in the library of one sim for engine but not the same way in the chassis? I'm not positing anything as even plausible but the fact that I have known scientific programs to be reliant on the features of the language compiler so very much more than any other numerical field, and the fact that building computing power is frequently not left to conservative manufacturers and instead even with a top tier system vendor, rather a large assembly job of parts, the running of the required software is left to the customer very often. I have no idea any of this isn't wildly nonsense rot talk because nothing is known about the tools used by Mclaren or Honda, but if you have a multinational providing you with a money no object super from Hitachi or fujitsu at home, working with the best of cluster supers is no easy transition. I doubt that sort of change ever is demanded by sane management, but the need to interchange data processed or about to be processed by very different systems is not inconceivable at all. I say here only that not many supercomputers are like most people imagine a computer to be, if a single thing you can proverbially sit and program; most of the systems are racks of independent machines and fed jobs made digestible by small parts. Japanese supercomputers however have been still the single machine kind far more than ours and they really are the last hold outs for that type of machine. It's possible that engineers in Japan have been using very different tools for most of their career. Just explaining what difference they are capable of creating in the working data for any job is too many variables to contemplate. But the potential exists and I've tried to hand wave about just one route to surprises, avoiding actual technical explanation. My intention is to make a point of how much you and I have been in the dark about the entire situation and how much potential exists for problems in one presumed part of the venture to be affected by the other side, without any necessary blame or even thought of responsibility falling to anyone at all. Just how many senior people in F1 have a working knowledge of the computer industry, let alone the esoterica that get deployed in the design of a all or nothing product as the Honda engine has become? Limits are applicable to aerodynamics but not as far as I know parts R&D. So if Honda is not using the national laboratory level kit they likely are able to get time to use, I'd be very surprised indeed. Ever had to be a tech support for family over the phone? Well imagine that times many times and some, for the fun of taking to another programmer about the same piece of software you have been both working on. And Japanese as a language is notably restraining on the computer community there, I can't say but I think it is somewhat especially difficult for them to discuss computers in Japanese. I think I made my point a while ago so that is that on that. Not nearly enough has been made of the fact that the media has been in unison moaning since too long for my sensitivity about Honda. I'm convinced that the trash talk began worryingly early on. Even suspiciously early on. That's badly disappointing and a miserable black mark against us as a culture. I may have to retract that, but I recall no time at all that Honda weren't being badly spoken of. That's not acceptable in my book. And to get Sauber only to be deprived of the chief who brought them to the point, is a disgusting disrespect to Honda by the financial management there, to my mind. I feel totally guilty about the way Honda has been knocked about. I have no words except should never happen. And indeed, bringing Honda back to the sport is a great way to remember the last actions of Ron Dennis. I think we'll have some more to thank him for his efforts in the racing, and forget about this or good as forget. But I'm not sure if the results I am going to see won't be a Sauber celebration and the backdrop a Mclaren lament with another supplier. Just now they threw away both of the people who were instrumental in the return of Honda and the way the latter was enacted gives me no hope for the good husbandry of gherkin talents in Hinwil, oh how I think it is a real matter of shame that it is like this.

          How a Cloud-Based Platform to Execute a Business   

Selling a business is a complex decision where it involves several considerations. It takes a lot of preparation to sell one, and also you need to enlist on a broker, accountant, and an attorney. The profit on the sale of the business depends on the reason for the sale. Having a successful business is what everybody dreams of but having to run it successfully is what one struggles. The reason for the sale of the business, the timing of the sale and the strength and structure of the business operation all complete themselves to get the profit from the business sale.

A successful business is one when there are people who run the entity smoothly. But at certain times you end up selling them even though they are running in a very successful way. Reasons could be the retirement of the business owner, plan for a new venture, disputes between the partners, illness, and death of the owners, boredom, and overwork.

Getting Prepared to Sell Your Business

Selling a business requires the time of preferably a year or two. This preparation will make it easy to improve the company’s financial records, business structure, and customer base. If the business is quite successful or is well known for its credibility, then it can be easy to determine the worth of the business by not pricing it too high or too low. Getting help from the appraiser makes the value for the business. After knowing the worth of the business, financial statements and tax returns which is dated back to three to four years need to get collected, lists of contacts of sales transactions and supplies, etc., are needed. And then after everything gets done, the most difficult task begins of finding the buyer which almost takes time from six months to two years and finding the right buyer can be a very challenging task.

These were all the deeds of the past but now as times have changed and the impact of the internet is widespread, made cloud-based business sale platform a new trend. A For Sale By Owner (FSBO) solution is an alternative to the classic sale of business sans internet.


What Cloud-Based Platform Bring to Your Business Sale?

The cloud-based platforms provide online tools, legal forms, templates, access to nearby advisers, how to guides, and also the most efficient market route. These online alternatives are well structured with a four stage process to decide, prepare, promote and close the deal. In the past, there used to be middlemen who would connect the B2B, but when doing it cloud-based you need not require broker fees, and also, the payment to these facilities are one-off.

They also have online tools for company valuations, to schedule the tasks and produce your sales memorandum. Business brokers, appraisers, tax advisers, accountants, and financial advisers are also with round the clock assistance to make it even more effective. These providers also have sample legal forms, templates and checklists so that the company can move its processes smoothly. They also have online guidance from lively experts who help in how to guides and subject articles.

This type of cloud-based platform to execute a business sale has efficient marketing cycles where the company can address potential buyers through advertising campaigns on search engines like Google hosted by the cloud company and thus making it an easy and speedy task of business sale.

          Envisioning the scientific community as One Big Lab   
The blogosphere has been abuzz recently, or, at least, it seems that way if you've only been checking up on it sporadically the last few weeks. Jennifer Rohn's post about lab notebooks has spurred over 100 lively comments spanning electronic lab notebooks, peer-review, openness in science, and the reward system in science, making for an engrossing peek at the social science of science. Cameron's own musings on that discussion. Pawel Szczesny writes about what it means to be a freelancing scientist. All of this is fascinating and it is exciting to contemplate both what the future of science holds and the obstacles we will need to overcome; the fact that there are indeed stubborn obstacles (technological as well as cultural) and potentially tremendous rewards makes the anticipation of that future all the more heightened.

Emboldened by the collective fervor, I would like to propose an idea - an idea with the same name as this blog. But first, the back story.

About 8 months ago, one of my lab mates was writing up a short paper for submission to a translational bioinformatics conference. The work she was submitting revolved around a powerful literature-search tool tailored for pharmacogenomics called Pharmspresso. Although Pharmspresso had features lacking in existing search methods and was thus useful, the intent was for it to recognize genes, drugs and polymorphisms in free text, and so she needed a way to evaluate its performance. The evaluation task would be straightforward: given a set of pharmacogenomics papers, what percentage of the mentions of genes, drugs, and polymorphisms does Pharmspresso capture? Getting the list of recognized entities from Pharmspresso would be easy, just give it the documents and set it running. But what would be the gold standard?

Typically, gold standards are created by humans. In this case, it would be the list of entities recognized by human readers with the appropriate knowledge to make the distinctions, in the same set of papers. To get her gold standard then, she essentially asked favors of her colleagues in the lab and the department, which translated to a number of them reading papers and doing data entry during free time (or during faculty talks) at a departmental retreat in early fall - not exactly fun, but done out of a sense of duty to science and the goodness of their hearts.

Afterwards, while socializing during one of the poster sessions, this task came up, and the discussion (in which Samuel Flores, Magda Jonikas, Yael Garten, Alain Laederach, and Bernie Daigle all participated) quickly turned to alternative solutions for tackling this and similar problems in science - those requiring knowledge and resources external to your own. As another example, many bioinformaticians work on problems that produce predictions of functions which would benefit from experimental tests of their validity. Conversely, a wet lab may benefit greatly from someone with computational expertise guiding or leading the data analysis, or even providing the hypotheses for experimental studies (in the form of predictions). This is the stuff from which many collaborations are born, but it may be difficult to find the right people in the first place, or the task at hand might seem not quite collaboration-worthy.

In essence, the problem boils down to this: you or your lab possesses a certain collection of skills, knowledge, and resources (hereafter referred to as simply resources), but your needs may not be fully addressed by what you possess. The solution lies in this simple proposition: some other person or lab has what you're looking for.

While it makes sense for a lab or individual to grow their resources and be mostly self-sufficient, at some point it becomes more economical to outsource certain tasks - to companies for antibody development, software for data analysis, supercomputers for high-throughput computing, etc. In some cases, the exchange takes place directly at the academic level, for example, with some labs maintaining and sharing specific cell lines or mouse strains for use by other researchers, or less directly through the use of published and available tools for all sorts of tasks in bioinformatics. So it would seem that outsourcing is common and accepted. But aside from these sorts of established avenues, what other needs do scientists have in conducting their research that are not easily solved? How often is a line of inquiry abandoned or slowed because of a lack of necessary skills, knowledge, or material resources?

The idea behind One Big Lab is that the scientific community should act as, well, one big lab, sharing resources when it makes sense, and everyone, especially the community as a whole, benefits.

During that discussion at the departmental retreat, the solution boiled down to some form of online transaction service built around a credit system. Scientist X would like 5 gold standard outputs for a certain task, so she posts a description of the task along with some credit attached. Other users can then sign up to complete the task, after which they receive the stated number of credits. Of course, in order to post tasks, you need to have a balance of credits you can draw from - which you earn by doing other people's tasks. Getting credits into the system to start needs to be figured out (give everyone N credits? Money for credits?), but assuming there's some baseline of credit floating around amongst the various users, an equilibrium should eventually be reached (at least, that's the hope).

Variations on this theme are natural - have a peer rating system, have the final credit payment be subject to a bidding system (based somehow on user ratings, e.g. highly rated users can ask for more credits to complete a task and the task-poster may select which user to "hire" based on the user ratings as well as how much each user is asking), have some kind of mechanism for taking transactions "offline" into serious collaborations, etc. Tasks may run the gamut from routine and rote to intellectually stimulating and scientifically rewarding. Obviously, guidelines will have to be set for what transactions may be appropriate for this forum and which ones might be more suited for formal, collaborative relationships - but even here, a forum such as this could be very useful for finding collaborators.

In addition to the scientific transaction system, there could be other features that build on the community aspect, such as journal clubs, informal manuscript review, resources for students, and discussion forums. There could be repositories for knowledge or links to existing ones, informal or formal consulting, and casual exchange of ideas which could stimulate research or professional development. All of this should reinforce the idea that science is strengthened by community and the scientific community should not be held back by insufficient allocation of resources.

Although there are a number of websites out there that tackle some of these aspects, especially the community-building ones, I haven't really seen much resembling the transaction system, which is really the core of the idea. Pawel's freelance science comes close, and what I'd like to see is a formalized community-wide online service for essentially that. Maybe this is technically infeasible right now right the way grants work (it may be difficult to justify spending time or resources on other people's research) or with the way scientists work, but I would like to think that the basic premise - bringing together people with complementary skills and resources - makes sense and balances out in everyone's favor. (Whether this premise actually pans out in practice is up for debate - if we offered credits for cash, would anyone ever do someone else's tasks, or would demand outpace supply? By the same token, there could be "freelance" scientists like Pawel who primarily complete tasks, and could then have the option of "cashing out".) I'm sure there are a ton of tricky legal, IP, financial, organizational, etc not to mention social and cultural issues (would you trust someone you don't know to do work for you?), but I think the idea of having One Big Lab is worth exploring.

If I had the time, skills, and business acumen I would throw together a prototype and work out a business plan, but at the moment the most I can do is outsource it to the closest thing we have to One Big Lab - the blogosphere. ;)

Incidentally, Alain Laederach had come up with a similar idea about a year earlier and we thought about naming it "Experitrade" - an online system for trading experiments, essentially, but the name sounded too corporate and the grant he wrote never got off the ground. But the idea has persisted and inspired One Big Lab.

So, I'd welcome any thoughts, logical extensions, deal-makers or deal-breakers, important issues to consider, "prior art"... does anyone think this idea has legs? Will it work if it is completely altruistic? Does adding money into the equation detract from its mission or the science? What sorts of technical and organizational roadblocks are there? Clearly it makes the most sense, if any prototype is developed, to start small - with a couple participating labs or within a school or university, which helps with the trust issue as well. But I'd like to make sure I'm not completely missing the picture!
          PSB proposal accepted for a workshop   
The proposal we submitted for a session on Open Science at the Pacific Symposium on Biocomputing was accepted! They notified us yesterday that it would be included as a 3 hour workshop on the first day of the conference. Many thanks to all those who sent encouragement or letters of support - I'm sure it went a long way towards convincing the conference organizers that we are serious!

           ℓ 2 -TORSION OF FREE-BY-CYCLIC GROUPS   
Abstract
We provide an upper bound on the 2-torsion of a free-by-cyclic group, −ρ(2)(F⋊ΦZ), in terms of a relative train-track representative for Φ∈Aut(F). Our result shares features with a theorem of Lück–Schick computing the 2-torsion of the fundamental group of a 3-manifold that fibers over the circle in that it shows that the 2-torsion is determined by the exponential dynamics of the monodromy. In light of the result of Lück–Schick, a special case of our bound is analogous to the bound on the volume of a 3-manifold that fibers over the circle with pseudo-Anosov monodromy by the normalized entropy recently demonstrated by Kojima–McShane.

The unknowns on the AI side have to do with the inspectability of hedging algos:

This is not a new problem ...2012 ..."At the M.I.T. conference, a panel was asked to cite examples of big failures in Big Data. No one could really think of any. Soon after, though, Roberto Rigobon could barely contain himself as he took to the stage. Mr. Rigobon, a professor at M.I.T.’s Sloan School of Management, said that the financial crisis certainly humbled the data hounds. “Hedge funds failed all over the world,” he said.

IBM seeks to help companies use their high-performance computers more efficiently with new software that links separate pools of resources into a single private cloud. Usually, organizations with intense engineering operations have separate server farms used by individual groups of engineers, leaving computing resources unused.

With this in mind, IBM is currently making HPC Management Suite for Cloud software available after having just used it internally. Over 3,000 engineers around the world shared resources as they developed the POWER7 processor family, claiming to have cut costs in half and reduced the design cycle by six months as a result of the software.

          The American People Are The Number One Target: "They Are Tightening The Screws"   

Authored by Jeremiah Johnson (Nom de plume of a retired Green Beret of the United States Army Special Forces ) via SHTFplan.com,

A little more than a week ago it was announced that Whole Foods was bought by Amazon.com for just under $14 billion.  One of the major problems with this is that Jeff Bezos, the head of Amazon has deep ties with the CIA and the Federal government.

Wal-Mart being fully in the government’s pocket and now Whole Foods brought under thumb as well, how much longer before Kissinger’s “Food as a Weapon” principle is brought to bear?  A good article was just released by Jon Rappaport entitled Buy your food from the CIA: Amazon buys Whole Foods, that is worth reading.

As if that connection is not nefarious enough, there is more: it appears a new cloud technology is being produced for the CIA from…you guessed it…none other than the CIA, as is excerpted here:

The intelligence community is about to get the equivalent of an adrenaline shot to the chest. This summer, a $600 million computing cloud developed by Amazon Web Services for the Central Intelligence Agency over the past year will begin servicing all 17 agencies that make up the intelligence community. If the technology plays out as officials envision, it will usher in a new era of cooperation and coordination, allowing agencies to share information and services much more easily and avoid the kind of intelligence gaps that preceded the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.

 

“The Details About the CIA’s Deal with Amazon,” - www.theatlantic.com    6/17/17

Guess the data center that ran taxpayers billions that is in Utah is not enough, nor the fusion centers in every state.  Did you like “…a new era of cooperation and coordination…” between the friendly agencies?  And all to “avoid intelligence gaps,” just for your protection, right?

Wrong.

They are tightening the screws, little by little, while they refine all the control mechanisms and place that security web over their number one target: the American people. 

They are taking control of the food supply incrementally.  Water?  Yes, here in Montana, the state just sent out a form for property owners to declare their water rights…as the CKST (Confederated Kootenai &Salish Tribes) Water Compact was passed into law in Montana in 2014.  Actions will be taken within the next two years.

As enumerated in other articles, Montana kicked in $3 million after the liberals in the state House and Senate, as well as the liberal governor, Bullock (D, MT) signed the water compact into law.  The shortfall is $8 million, as the total state commitment was $11 million.  They are just waiting for the Senate to ratify this as a Federal treaty, and then they can (ostensibly on “behalf” of the Indian Tribes) place meters on everyone’s wells…off of the reservation…and “manage” the water on behalf of the Indian Tribes…enforced by DHS.

This is a small slice of the country as a whole.  They are following full speed ahead with the Agenda 21 Directive to take over everyone’s food, water, land…everything.  A war will surely enable them to throw the Executive Order 13603 into action to confiscate and control every resource in the United States, including human labor…slave labor, to be precise.  Incrementally they place these laws into effect, and the stultified public, thinking only of the next barbeque and fireworks party is dumbed down into inactivity.

There’s enough going on in the international arena that is capturing everyone’s attention, such as North Korea’s missile tests and threats, China’s aggressive South China Sea/Senkaku islands maneuvering, and the Syrian debacle unfolding with the U.S. ratcheting up the tough-talk of blaming Russia and Iran for any “Syrian chemical attack” that comes along.  Russia also just deployed a new satellite, and there is the possibility that in a televised broadcast, he sent out a message to “sleeper” agent in the West.  See the article by Stefan Stanford entitled Vladimir Putin sends message to ‘Russian Sleeper Agents’ in West as Russia Launches Top Secret Military Satellite.

“Hammer and Anvil” usually refers to a military maneuver to crush an enemy force between two friendly elements.  This maneuver is being employed here and now, as well: either crush the United States and enslave its people domestically, with an economic collapse or civil war, or just initiate a war with another country and enslave the citizenry afterward.  Either way, they are pushing their agenda forward each day.  It is just a matter of time to find out which of the two vehicles…international war or domestic tyranny…that they will employ to obtain their globalist and totalitarian objectives.

          The creator of a super successful £27 computer said Brexit has been 'rocket fuel' for his business   

Raspberry Pi founder Eben Upton

Ask most tech entrepreneurs what they think about Brexit, and most will complain that the UK's decision to leave the EU will starve the country of international tech talent.

Eben Upton, the inventor of the super cheap Raspberry Pi computer, is careful not to voice an opinion about whether Brexit is good or bad. But Brexit has been good for his company in one respect — it's become a lot cheaper to make the tiny computers in the UK.

"In the short term, the adjustment to the exchange rate has had a positive effect on UK manufacturing," he told Business Insider. "It isn't a great idea to devalue your way to success [but] it did make a substantial contribution to our profitability last year. It's rocket fuel, it really is."

Raspberry Pi

"As an organisation, we carefully don't have an opinion [about Brexit]," he added. "Our largest market is the US, we build in the UK. The second-largest is Germany, trading on the single market. It probably doesn't make much difference."

A weaker pound has benefited anyone who makes stuff in the UK and sells it abroad, so it's not just Raspberry Pi. And Upton added that it was "a mixed bag", since the computers are priced in dollars. That means they're more expensive to buy in the UK now.

Eben Upton thinks Cambridge's 'Silicon Fen' is changing

Upton spoke with Business Insider the day after being handed the UK's top engineering prize, the Royal Academy of Engineering MacRobert Award.

His company is hugely successful, having sold 40 million Raspberry Pi devices to date, at a rate of up to half a million every month. Upton has avoided the drama of venture capital and an IPO by establishing the non-profit Raspberry Pi foundation and the for-profit associated trading company. It is, he said, "mission-driven", and the fundamental goal is to "reboot enthusiasm in computing."

Raspberry Pi began in Cambridge, which earned itself the nickname "Silicon Fen" for producing successful hardware firms like ARM.

Does it still deserve the name?

"I think the complexion of what we do in Cambridge changes," said Upton. "It's been a while since we did much silicon in Cambridge. We have some mature companies, like Broadcom, but we're maybe not doing the same number of silicon startups, hardware chip startups, as we did 20 years ago. We're doing a lot more software stuff. What's actually more unusual about Raspberry Pi is that we are a hardware company."

Business Insider asked Upton what he thinks of Mike Lynch, the billionaire founder of another Cambridge success story, Autonomy.

mike lynch dark trace

Lynch's career has been controversial. He sold Autonomy to HP, which then sued him for fraud. He then went on to found Invoke Capital, which invested in Darktrace.

"He's a force of nature," said Upton. "Sometimes you need these larger-than-life guys who are very determined to push things forwards. [Raspberry Pi] is a Darktrace customer ... we're a Mike Lynch customer."

He added: "Cambridge is the place in the UK to do deep tech. There are other places in the country you can do all sorts of things, but for grungy deep tech, it's still here." He cites the University of Cambridge as the driving force for this. "It's spitting out people who do difficult things and technology. There's nowhere quite like it."

Upton thinks the government needs to pay for better teacher training

The Raspberry Pi is intended to get children coding, though its appeal is now much broader. The foundation has set up lots of coding clubs at schools around the country. Alongside this, England introduced the computing curriculum in 2014, to replace ICT. At the time, the government announced £500,000 in funds to help train teachers up.

But nearly three years later, uptake isn't looking great. According to research by the University of Roehampton, 28.5% of English schools entered pupils for a computing GCSE in 2015, and only 24% for an A-Level.

"There needs to be more emphasis on teacher training," said Upton. "It's hard for teachers to promote a new subject if you don't train them to teach the curriculum. We advocate constantly for the government to do more in the area of teacher training. It's done half the job, and we're seeing encouraging signs. The government is thinking about making those investments."

          Tri-Clustered Tensor Completion for Social-Aware Image Tag Refinement   
Social image tag refinement, which aims to improve tag quality by automatically completing the missing tags and rectifying the noise-corrupted ones, is an essential component for social image search. Conventional approaches mainly focus on exploring the visual and tag information, without considering the user information, which often reveals important hints on the (in)correct tags of social images. Towards this end, we propose a novel tri-clustered tensor completion framework to collaboratively explore these three kinds of information to improve the performance of social image tag refinement. Specifically, the inter-relations among users, images and tags are modeled by a tensor, and the intra-relations between users, images and tags are explored by three regularizations respectively. To address the challenges of the super-sparse and large-scale tensor factorization that demands expensive computing and memory cost, we propose a novel tri-clustering method to divide the tensor into a certain number of sub-tensors by simultaneously clustering users, images and tags into a bunch of tri-clusters. And then we investigate two strategies to complete these sub-tensors by considering (in)dependence between the sub-tensors. Experimental results on a real-world social image database demonstrate the superiority of the proposed method compared with the state-of-the-art methods.
          Robust Multiview Photometric Stereo Using Planar Mesh Parameterization   
We propose a robust uncalibrated multiview photometric stereo method for high quality 3D shape reconstruction. In our method, a coarse initial 3D mesh obtained using a multiview stereo method is projected onto a 2D planar domain using a planar mesh parameterization technique. We describe methods for surface normal estimation that work in the parameterized 2D space that jointly incorporates all geometric and photometric cues from multiple viewpoints. Using an estimated surface normal map, a refined 3D mesh is then recovered by computing an optimal displacement map in the same 2D planar domain. Our method avoids the need of merging view-dependent surface normal maps that is often required in conventional methods. We conduct evaluation on various real-world objects containing surfaces with specular reflections, multiple albedos, and complex topologies in both controlled and uncontrolled settings and demonstrate that accurate 3D meshes with fine geometric details can be recovered by our method.

May 25th 2009 in Toronto: This workshop has been designed to give you a head start in modular architecture practice with abstractions such as the “layer”. You will acquire fundamental knowledge about how to partitions into layers the concerns of the application. We will demonstrate how to apply “top-down” as well as “test-driven” design techniques. You will learn how to correctly design the “velcro”, the visible interface of a module. In the same way, you will learn how to conceive a “fake” implementation, an efficient practice to test a module in an autonomous way. At the end of this workshop you will understand why architects require a unit of modularity that goes beyond object.

          "Cloud of Clouds"    
2008 Recap In 2008, we saw the early seeds of a "cloud of clouds" emerging. It started in April with Salesforce and Google announcing integration between Google Apps and Salesforce to bridge the gap between Google's productivity applications and Salesforce. Later in the year, at Dreamforce, Salesforce expanded the idea of a "cloud of clouds" by announcing integrations with Facebook (for social graph information) and with Amazon (for raw computing infrastructure).

          The ONE right way to Scrum   
What is the right way to Scrum?
This question is brought up a lot in organizations that are transforming to Scrum to improve their ability to deliver products. It's a natural question for smart people to ask when they are receiving Scrum training and then discover other teams adjusting from the "default" or "standard" implementation of their company's Scrum process.

Is there one way to do Scrum?

It's better to ask yourself, "should there be one way?"

When anthropologists talk of societies and biologists talk of evolution and virus colonies, history has shown that the results of monocultures are dangerous. The societies, governments, organisms, or colonies that survive are those that could respond to a change that wiped the others out. Having everyone thinking and agreeing all the time means new ideas aren't getting tried out. On the other hand, having only conflict/chaos means poor productivity/survival.
Computing monoculture
agricultural monocultures

What is Scrum?

Scrum has been around for over 10 years.  (You can read Martin Fowler's 2005 overview of Scrum in
The new methodology called Scrum)

Scrum says once the planning meeting has finished and the sprint starts, the planning conflict (conflict over resources) is over (or at least is moved outside the team) and the execution of the plan begins. For the team, conflict moves to technical implementation as they discover the best designs (test plans, class designs, craftsmanship) to meet the plan's goals. At the end, the team, ScrumMaster, and ProductOwner inspect the results and proposes a "new experiment" to improve software delivery.

What is Scrum (or basic scrum)

Three roles: team that does the project work, a ScrumMaster, and a single person to be ProductOwner.
A fixed backlog of work for a sprint.  A sprint is a fixed length of time.
A quick planning meeting.
Retrospective and sprint demo.
Daily standup meetings that are no longer than 15 minutes.

*Velocity, burndown charts, and task boards are also expected but aren't necessary for the empirical process other than adding more visibility. But since visibility is necessary, like a microscope is necessary to a biologist, I'm including them too.

You may ask six Agile Consultants "What is Scrum" and get six answers but I expect all six will have at least all the above.

Why six different answers?
How I Scrum today is different than how I Scrummed in 2006. How I Scrummed in 2006 is different than 2004 (my first Scrum project). But in all cases, I did Scrum. Before 2004, I did eXtreme Programming, and did not do all the above that is Scrum and instead did other things, XP practices (pairing, TDD, system test) and how my team executed those practices changed every month/year.

Why did my practices change? Because my teams inspected the WAY we did things and ADAPTED. We talked to and learned from others doing agile and tried out ideas for a sprint. Using the rigors of the experimental process (control/fix everything else but what you want to change, and then measure the results at the end) we decided what new adjustment to keep and what not to keep.

Standards

Should there be a standard way across an organization?
Are you saying that you want a monoculture? Is Scrum itself a monoculture? Maybe, but if each Scrum team is a little or a lot different so I think it's not a monoculture. I think that doing "basic" Scrum (just Scrum) as a standard is a good idea because then everyone from development to the CEO understands the culture enough not to:
Ask team members multitask across different projects
Ask POs to change the team's sprint backlog while they are in mid sprint
Discourage highly collaborative practices like Pair Programming
Discourage differences between Scrum teams
Ignore impediments discovered by teams

We want how we work together standard enough to not break each others' Scrum processes and to support teams' inspection and adaption of their own processes.

Directing an organization without standardizing a monoculture


Standardizing on organizational goals that allow teams to self organize is a good idea. Here are some I've seen in the industry:
burndown chart of some kind, definitions of done,
Automated system tests, automated unit tests, a system to show how many tests are passing/failing in the last hour, collocated teams, a highly visible team task board the team can use throughout the day, current code coverage and sprint by sprint history so we can see the trend.

The one TRUE way to Scrum

When an organization leaves Waterfall for Scrum, people need to be well trained on what is Scrum and asked to do things they are uncomfortable with, maybe even things they can't imagine could work. They need this pressure to get started doing Scrum otherwise, before even their first sprint, they decide to inspect and adapt to something they are comfortable with, Waterfall, out of a sense of comfort rather than out of quantifiable measurements that come out of the Scrum process (Velocity is a big one). So to get a team started, they will need to take a starting Scrum model on faith until they get the idea and see results good or bad. After a few Sprints, I expect to see that the cumulative affects of inspect and adapt to show some changes from their starting Scrum model but to still see the basic Scrum model intact.

If someone says that they have one true way to do Scrum, I'd start walking the other way because that person doesn't understand that Scrum requires teams to inspect and adapt their process to become efficient for their specific situation. If a team isn't inspecting AND adapting, then their Scrum process is broke.

          The creator of a super successful £27 computer said Brexit has been 'rocket fuel' for his business   
The creator of a super successful £27 computer said Brexit has been 'rocket fuel' for his business Ask most tech entrepreneurs what they think about Brexit, and most will complain that the UK's decision to leave the EU will starve the country of international tech talent.

Eben Upton, the inventor of the super cheap Raspberry Pi computer, is careful not to voice an opinion about whether Brexit is good or bad. But Brexit has been good for his company in one respect — it's become a lot cheaper to make the tiny computers in the UK.

"In the short term, the adjustment to the exchange rate has had a positive effect on UK manufacturing," he told Business Insider. "It isn't a great idea to devalue your way to success [but] it did make a substantial contribution to our profitability last year. It's rocket fuel, it really is."

"As an organisation, we carefully don't have an opinion [about Brexit]," he added. "Our largest market is the US, we build in the UK. The second-largest is Germany, trading on the single market. It probably doesn't make much difference."

A weaker pound has benefited anyone who makes stuff in the UK and sells it abroad, so it's not just Raspberry Pi. And Upton added that it was "a mixed bag", since the computers are priced in dollars. That means they're more expensive to buy in the UK now.

*Eben Upton thinks Cambridge's 'Silicon Fen' is changing*

Upton spoke with Business Insider the day after being handed the UK's top engineering prize, the Royal Academy of Engineering MacRobert Award.

His company is hugely successful, having sold 40 million Raspberry Pi devices to date, at a rate of up to half a million every month. Upton has avoided the drama of venture capital and an IPO by establishing the non-profit Raspberry Pi foundation and the for-profit associated trading company. It is, he said, "mission-driven", and the fundamental goal is to "reboot enthusiasm in computing."

Raspberry Pi began in Cambridge, which earned itself the nickname "Silicon Fen" for producing successful hardware firms like ARM.

Does it still deserve the name?

"I think the complexion of what we do in Cambridge changes," said Upton. "It's been a while since we did much silicon in Cambridge. We have some mature companies, like Broadcom, but we're maybe not doing the same number of silicon startups, hardware chip startups, as we did 20 years ago. We're doing a lot more software stuff. What's actually more unusual about Raspberry Pi is that we are a hardware company."

Business Insider asked Upton what he thinks of Mike Lynch, the billionaire founder of another Cambridge success story, Autonomy.

Lynch's career has been controversial. He sold Autonomy to HP, which then sued him for fraud. He then went on to found Invoke Capital, which invested in Darktrace.

"He's a force of nature," said Upton. "Sometimes you need these larger-than-life guys who are very determined to push things forwards. [Raspberry Pi] is a Darktrace customer ... we're a Mike Lynch customer."

He added: "Cambridge is the place in the UK to do deep tech. There are other places in the country you can do all sorts of things, but for grungy deep tech, it's still here." He cites the University of Cambridge as the driving force for this. "It's spitting out people who do difficult things and technology. There's nowhere quite like it."

*Upton thinks the government needs to pay for better teacher training*

The Raspberry Pi is intended to get children coding, though its appeal is now much broader. The foundation has set up lots of coding clubs at schools around the country. Alongside this, England introduced the computing curriculum in 2014, to replace ICT. At the time, the government announced £500,000 in funds to help train teachers up.

But nearly three years later, uptake isn't looking great. According to research by the University of Roehampton, 28.5% of English schools entered pupils for a computing GCSE in 2015, and only 24% for an A-Level.

"There needs to be more emphasis on teacher training," said Upton. "It's hard for teachers to promote a new subject if you don't train them to teach the curriculum. We advocate constantly for the government to do more in the area of teacher training. It's done half the job, and we're seeing encouraging signs. The government is thinking about making those investments."

Originally posted on: http://blog.crip.ch/archive/2015/10/05/167336.aspx

Solidsoft Reply is in recruiting mode.  We are the UK’s leading integration specialists on the Microsoft Platform with a decade and a half experience of hard-core development using BizTalk Server and related technologies.  These days, of course, we focus much of our attention on cloud-based integration technologies.  However, we have seen a surge of interest in BizTalk Server over the last couple of years.  Much of this has been driven by the ever-growing adoption of Dynamics (AX, CRM) within the enterprise.  In the face of concerted competition from some of the new iPaaS kids-on-the-block, BizTalk Server continues to attract new customers at a very healthy rate.   Not only are we involved in more concurrent BizTalk projects than at any time in our history, the average size and value of those projects has increased noticeably.

We are a conservative lot when it comes to hiring.  We have always placed a high value on experience and capability.  Our reputation depends on it.  Our team of approximately twenty full-time BizTalk specialists has been growing in recent months, but we need to extend that team further to cope with current and projected demand.  We are looking to employee another two or three people with proven BizTalk Server development and consulting skills, experience of enterprise-level development and the aptitude to work closely with corporate customers.  These people will join the team as full-time employees, working with other members of our team and alongside our wider community of associates.  Most of the BizTalk development we do is team-based and involves EAI and the design and implementation of enterprise service bus capabilities.  We need people with experience and understanding of the full development life-cycle.  If you are looking to take your career beyond development into technical consultancy and leadership, we offer the opportunity to expand your horizons.

As well as BizTalk Server, we have a wider involvement in development on the Azure platform.  We have one team working on one of the largest Azure development projects undertaken in Europe.  We are working closely with Microsoft on early real-world Service Fabric-based development.  We are building our capabilities in BI, BCDR and Azure-based managed services.  Most of our integrations customers have a direct interest in cloud computing and plan to exploit cloud-based approaches alongside more traditional enterprise integration models.  If you want to extend your knowledge and experience of cloud-enabled integration using Azure services such as the service bus and App Service, then consider a career with us.

Solidsoft Reply is part of the greater Reply family, a network of highly specialised companies that  help their customers develop business models to optimise and integrate processes, applications and devices and use new technology and communication paradigms such as Big Data, Cloud Computing, Digital Communication, Internet of Things and Mobile and Social Networking.  Reply operates across Europe and several other regions.  Solidsoft Reply is based in the UK (Basingstoke) and Italy.

          Tell Us Once (TUO) goes live   

Originally posted on: http://blog.crip.ch/archive/2011/12/16/tell-us-once-tuo-goes-live.aspx

It's always exciting when a new application you've worked on goes live. The last couple of weeks have seen the 'soft' launch of a new service offered by the UK government called 'Tell Us Once' (TUO). You can probably guess from the name what the service does. Currently, the service allows UK citizens to inform the government (as opposed to Register Officers, who must still be notified separately) just once of two types of 'change-of-circumstance' event; namely births and deaths. You can go, say, to your local authority contact centre, where an officer will work through a set of screens with you, collecting the information you wish to provide. Then, once the Submit button is clicked, that's it! With your consent, the correct data sets are parcelled up and distributed to wherever they need to go - central and local government departments, public sector agencies such as the DVLA, Identity and Passport Service, etc. No need to write 50 letters!

With my colleagues at SolidSoft , I'm really proud to have been involved with the team that designed and developed this new service. For the past few years, we worked originally on the prototypes and pilots (there was more than one!). Over the last eighteen months or so, we have been engaged in building the national system, and development work in on-going. It's been a journey! The idea is very simple, but as you can imagine, the realisation of that idea is rather more complex. Look for future enhancements to today's service, with the ability to report events on-line from the comfort of your own home and the possible extension of the system to cover additional event types in future.

Interaction with government has just got a whole lot better for UK citizens, and we helped make that happen. It's a pity that I don't intend to have any more children (four is enough!), and I really hope I don't have to report a death in the near future, but if I do, I'll be beating a path to the door of my local council's contact centre in order to 'tell them once'.

          BizTalk Server 2010 R2 Announced   

Originally posted on: http://blog.crip.ch/archive/2011/12/09/biztalk-server-2010-r2-announced.aspx

Yesterday, Microsoft announced the forthcoming release of BizTalk Server 2010 R2 on the BizTalk Server blog site.  This is advanced notice, given that this new version will ship six months after the release of Windows 8, expected in the second half of next year.  On this basis, we can expect the new version of BizTalk Server to arrive in 2013.  Given the BizTalk team’s previous record of name changes, I wonder if this will eventually be released as BizTalk Server 2013.

Microsoft has been refreshingly open in recent months about their future plans for BizTalk Server.  This strategy has not been without its dangers with some commentators refusing to accept Microsoft’s statements at face value.  However, yesterday’s announcement is entirely in line with everything Microsoft has been saying, both publically and privately, for some time now.  Since the release of BizTalk Server 2004, Microsoft has made little change to the core technology with, of course, the exception of a much re-vamped application packaging approach in BizTalk Server 2006.  Instead, Microsoft chose to put investment into a number of important ‘satellite’ technologies such as EDIFACT/X12/AS2 support, RFID Server, etc.  Maintaining the stability of the core platform has allowed BizTalk Server to emerge as a mature and trusted workhorse in the enterprise integration space with widely available skills in the marketplace.

In terms of its major investments, Microsoft’s focus has long shifted to the cloud.  Microsoft has candidly communicated that, given this focus, they have no current plans to add major new technologies to the BizTalk platform.  In addition, they absolutely have no intention of re-engineering the core BizTalk platform.  In my direct experience in recent months, this last point plays very well to prospective and existing enterprise customers.  It takes us straight to the heart of what most organisations want from an integration server: a ‘known quantity’ with a good track record for dependability, scalability and stability and a significant pool of available technical resource.

The announcement of BizTalk Server 2010 R2 illustrates and illuminates Microsoft’s stated future strategy for the product.  An important part of Microsoft’s platform for enterprise computing, it will continue to be enhanced and extended.  It will match future developments in the Windows platform and new versions of Visual Studio.  However, we should not expect to see any dramatic new developments in the world of BizTalk Server.  Instead, the BizTalk platform will continue to steadily mature further as the world’s best-selling integration server.

One of the big messages of yesterday’s announcement is that BizTalk Server will increasingly support its emerging role in building hybrid solutions that encompass systems and services that reside both on-premises and in the cloud.  At SolidSoft , we are increasingly focused on the design and implementation of cloud-based and hybrid integration solutions.  Integration is challenging, and Azure is a young, fast evolving platform.  Microsoft has discussed at length their vision of Azure within a wider ‘hybrid’ context.  The availability of a tried and tested, mature, on-premises integration server is a vitally important enabler in building hybrid solutions.  Better than that, the announcement makes it clear that, as well as new support for the Azure service bus, BizTalk Server 2010 R2 licensing will be revised to open up new opportunities for hosting the server in the cloud.  This ties in with the push in Azure to embrace more fully the IaaS (infrastructure-as-a-service) model and, perhaps most importantly in the BizTalk space, to reduce or eliminate existing barriers between the on-premises and off-premises worlds.   BizTalk Server and Azure belong together.


          Huge response to on-line AI course   

Originally posted on: http://blog.crip.ch/archive/2011/08/20/huge-response-to-on-line-ai-course.aspx

Peter Norvig and Sebastian Thrun are offering a free on-line course on AI later this year in conjunction with Stanford University. The course is broadly based on Peter Norvig's book "Artificial Intelligence: A modern Approach" written jointly with Stuart Russell. Along with my colleagues on the Rules Fest committee, we have been following this with interest. In a few days, well over 100,000 people have signed up (112,774 at the time of writing, and still increasing fast). The course broadly overlaps with our natural areas of interest at Rules Fest which is all about the practical application of reasoning technologies in real-world computing. It is very encouraging to us to see the huge interest this course is generating. We will doubtless be contacting Peter, yet again, to see if he will speak at next year's conference (we keep plugging away at this).
 
In another development, we all woke up to the news a couple of days ago that HP, as part of its dramatic change in strategy, has bid almost $11Bn to acquire enterprise search company, Autonomy. Autonomy offers proprietary technology that exploits Bayes theorem, Shannon's information theory and specific forms of SVD to create an intelligent search platform with learning capabilities. Clearly, HP sees this type of technology as playing a major and lucrative role in their future.
 
Some time ago, at an event organised by the excellent BizTalk Users' Group in Sweden, I was asked to do a little crystal ball gazing. I trotted out the line that the next few years will see AI-related and reasoning technologies, formally thought of as esoteric and impractical, find their place at the heart of enterprise computing alongside existing investments in traditional LoB/Back Office applications and integration services. With the advent of cloud computing and platforms such as Azure, we have the horsepower available to make this a practical and feasible possibility for mainstream enterprise computing. AI used to be a dirty word. No longer!

          Comment on Where to get content for OpenSim by Maria Korolov   
I had an online account back in the late 80s because I was studying computers and engineering at Cornell. Yes, it was a lot of students and academics back then -- at least, I, myself, as a student, tended to connect to other students. And, from what I recall, it totally sucked. And I don't know about all the great non-trolling people you were connected to, but everyone I knew spent their time downloading ASCII porn. Okay, not everyone. And, okay, not all their time. They had to save some time for the alt.sex newsgroup! Fortunately, whatever it is that you're nostalgic for, it's still out there on the Web somewhere. There are discussion forums that are a lot like alt.sex, and a million Tumbler blogs, and anarchist enclaves, and whatever it is that you're missing. Unless it's the spirit of exploration and excitement that is what you're really missing. Or your youth, or enthusiasm, or something like that. Those things are hard to find. A few years ago, I found that kind of feeling in OpenSim, and then in VR, mostly by luck. I don't know where the frontier in computer software and communication platforms is right now. If I did, I'd be there already. The thing about frontiers is that you don't recognize them until after the fact. And the length of time a frontier stays a frontier is shrinking rapidly. So by the time you discover it, it might no longer be a frontier anymore but a mature industry. Outside software and communications, I think there are interesting things happening now in genetic research, AI, quantum computing, and space exploration. You can go back to school and get in on that, but you don't have to have multiple PhDs to join in -- the communities are broader than just the researchers themselves, and include all kinds of support personnel, evangelists, volunteers, and so on and so forth.
