Samsung Electronics is planning to increase its production capacity of image sensors and it also set a goal to become the top business in image sensor market by beating out SONY. Number of demands for image sensors is growing very fast as more dual-cameras and cameras are being used for Smartphones and cars respectively.

It is expected that Samsung Electronics will become a clear-cut top comprehensive semiconductor manufacturer in the world as it is setting out to become the top business in image sensor market as well followed by DRAM and NAND flash memory.

According to industries, Samsung Electronics is planning to convert its 300mm 13 line in Hwasung that is used to produce DRAMs into a line that will be used to produce image sensors. Since last year, it has also been working to convert its 11 line in Hwasung that was used to produce DRAMs into a line (named as S4 line) that would be used to produce image sensors. Conversion process of S4 line will be done by end of this year.

Reason why Samsung Electronics is greatly increasing production capacity of image sensor is due to its confidence. Through its internal evaluation, it believes that its technologies are already near that of SONY. SONY and Samsung Electronics are the only ones in the world that developed and commercialized 3-stack image sensors (sensor+ analogue logic+ DRAM) that can process 960 frames per second. Samsung Electronics’ Wireless Business Department is purchasing and using image sensors from both SONY and Samsung Electronics’ System LSI Business Department to implement ‘Super-Slow Motion’ technology of Galaxy S9 series.

It is just small problem with it. Samsung is not truly independent sensor manufacturer. Actually all his best sensors are extremely close copies of Sony sensors. Whole idea was to form such alliance that was not formally announced to scare governments and manufacturers. Canon and their engineers also took good part in alliance success providing their dual pixel technology. The main victims seems to be former Samsung NX cameras lineup users, as due to agreement Samsung was forced to close the line.

    They focused on reducing blue peak and following dip, and is quite important for camera work.

    Camera Sales: Sony and transition to Full Frame Wed, 14 Mar 2018 11:30:22 -0600 Vitaliy_Kiselev 19204@/talks/discussions image


    We see price increase clearly. We also see that all mirrorless Sony sales are not rising. And only rise is in full frame cameras segment.

    Tim Berners-Lee or what happens if you are political imbecile Tue, 13 Mar 2018 21:19:57 -0600 Vitaliy_Kiselev 19201@/talks/discussions

    Today, the world wide web turns 29. This year marks a milestone in the web’s history: for the first time, we will cross the tipping point when more than half of the world’s population will be online.

    The divide between people who have internet access and those who do not is deepening existing inequalities, inequalities that pose a serious global threat. Unsurprisingly, you’re more likely to be offline if you are female, poor, live in a rural area or a low-income country, or some combination of the above.

    Big surprise.

    In 2016, the UN declared internet access a human right, on par with clean water, electricity, shelter and food. But until we make internet access affordable for all, billions will continue to be denied this basic right.

    Really? And other so called "human rights" , are they actually available to everyone already? No? May be because "human rights" is bullshit made to distract people?

    The web that many connected to years ago is not what new users will find today. What was once a rich selection of blogs and websites has been compressed under the powerful weight of a few dominant platforms. This concentration of power creates a new set of gatekeepers, allowing a handful of platforms to control which ideas and opinions are seen and shared.

    Another big surprise. Tim suddenly discovered how economics work under capitalism. Yes, Tim, it is imperialism on other side of your window. Big monopolies who become even bigger all around.

    These dominant platforms are able to lock in their position by creating barriers for competitors. They acquire startup challengers, buy up new innovations and hire the industry’s top talent. Add to this the competitive advantage that their user data gives them and we can expect the next 20 years to be far less innovative than the last.

    Well, each big capitalist does all the same, And they did it even 150 year ago, Tim.

    In recent years, we’ve seen conspiracy theories trend on social media platforms, fake Twitter and Facebook accounts stoke social tensions, external actors interfere in elections, and criminals steal troves of personal data.

    Tim, it is your beloved capitalism in natural form, and of course you like to call everything t like as "conspiracy theory" or 'fake news" or "interference".

    Today’s powerful digital economy calls for strong standards that balance the interests of both companies and online citizens. This means thinking about how we align the incentives of the tech sector with those of users and society at large, and consulting a diverse cross section of society in the process.

    Ouch, and this is call to fascism. Idea of negation of classes and idea to find and promote common interests of big capital and worker. Nothing new.

    While the problems facing the web are complex and large, I think we should see them as bugs: problems with existing code and software systems that have been created by people – and can be fixed by people. Create a new set of incentives and changes in the code will follow. We can design a web that creates a constructive and supportive environment.

    And idea to view the web as some tech thing outside society is utterly stupid.

    I want the web to reflect our hopes and fulfill our dreams, rather than magnify our fears and deepen our divisions. Let’s assemble the brightest minds from business, technology, government, civil society, the arts and academia to tackle the threats to the web’s future.

    And this is called idealism. To tackle the threats you need to change society, Tim. It is just a little problem, as it seems like you are on the side of people who made all this shite.

    Youtube to become ministry of truth Tue, 13 Mar 2018 17:37:39 -0600 Vitaliy_Kiselev 19199@/talks/discussions

    YouTube will add information from Wikipedia to videos about popular conspiracy theories to provide alternative viewpoints on controversial subjects, its CEO said today. YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki said that these text boxes, which the company is calling “information cues,” would begin appearing on conspiracy-related videos within the next couple of weeks.

    Nice, very nice. Next they will add proper government information to all videos not fully matching government views.
