Subject: How to build custom IoT hardware with Arduino

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

Recently I wanted to create an Arduino-based low-power Internet of Things (IoT) device for makers, with built-in sensors that could be used to deliver sensor data from any location to the cloud, and potentially control connected devices such as thermostats, lights, door locks, and other home automation products. Along the way, I learned that creating a new IoT device, from idea to prototype to final product, is not as simple as I thought it would be, and there was no "ready-to-go" development device to start with.read more

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

Pzizz is an Android app that generates a custom "nap narrative" that helps ease you off to dreamland and wakes you up when it's over. I was very skeptical about how restful a 20-minute forced nap could be, and at first, I doubted I'd fall asleep at all. Thankfully, I was very wrong.

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

There's always more than one way to do a job in the shell, and there may not be One Best Way to do that job, either. Nevertheless, different commands with the same output can differ in how long they take, how much memory they use and how hard they make the CPU work.Out of curiosity I trialled 6 different ways to get the last 5 characters from each line of a text file, which is a simple text-processing task.

Subject: AI and machine learning bias has dangerous implications

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

Algorithms are everywhere in our world, and so is bias. From social media news feeds to streaming service recommendations to online shopping, computer algorithms—specifically, machine learning algorithms—have permeated our day-to-day world. As for bias, we need only examine the 2016 American election to understand how deeply—both implicitly and explicitly—it permeates our society as well.What’s often overlooked, however, is the intersection between these two: bias in computer algorithms themselves.read more
