    Mordor and it's hackers are behing coronavirus issues
    • Thousands of Mordor -linked social media accounts have launched a coordinated effort to spread alarm about the new coronavirus, disrupting global efforts to fight the epidemic, US officials say.

      The disinformation campaign promotes unfounded conspiracy theories that the United States is behind the Covid-19 outbreak, in an apparent bid to damage the US image around the world by seizing on health concerns.

      The claims that have been circulating in recent weeks include allegations that the virus is a US effort to “wage economic war on China,” that it is a biological weapon manufactured by the CIA or part of a Western-led effort “to push anti-China messages”.

      Mine god. Hope they did not read any internal Chinese sources as it can be big shock.

    Sometimes algorithm matter a lot
    • Computational costs become a limiting factor when dealing with big systems. The exponential growth in the hardware performance observed over the past 60 years (the Moore’s law) is expected to end in the early 2020s. More advanced machine learning approaches (e.g., NNs) exhibit the cost scaling that grows polynomial with the dimension and the size of the statistics, rendering some form of ad hoc preprocessing and prereduction with more simple approaches (e.g., clustering methods) unavoidable for big data situations. However, these ad hoc preprocessing steps might impose a strong bias that is not easy to quantify. At the same time, lower cost of the method typically goes hand-in-hand with the lower quality of the obtained data representations (see Fig. 1). Since the amounts of collected data in most of the natural sciences are expected to continue their exponential growth in the near future, pressure on computational performance (quality) and scaling (cost) of algorithms will increase.


      Instead of solving discretization, feature selection, and prediction problems separately, the introduced computational procedure (SPA) solves them simultaneously. The iteration complexity of SPA scales linearly with data size. The amount of communication between processors in the parallel implementation is independent of the data size and linear with the data dimension (Fig. 2), making it appropriate for big data applications. Hence, SPA did not require any form of data prereduction for any of the considered applications. As shown in the Fig. 1, having essentially the same iteration cost scaling as the very popular and computationally very cheap K-means algorithm (16, 17), SPA allows achieving substantially higher approximation quality and a much higher parallel speedup with the growing size T of the data.

    3D imaging with material classification
    • trinamiX GmbH, a leader in 3D imaging and infrared sensing technologies, today announced it has joined the Qualcomm Software Accelerator Program to enable its patented technology for "live skin" detection as the new gold-standard for facial recognition across mobile devices.

      Through this new collaboration with trinamiX and Qualcomm Technologies, OEM customers will now be able to use the trinamiX proprietary "Beam Profile Analysis" technology, which extracts 3 data streams from a single camera system: a 2D IR image, a 3D depth map and most uniquely – material classification.

      Using this fundamentally new approach to security, it is now possible to combine standard facial-recognition algorithms from any 3rd party with the unique ability to sense "live skin." This eliminates the ability to fool the phone into unlocking via a mask, a high-resolution print or even a 3D rendering of the rightful owner's facial features. trinamiX patented technology enables an industry-leading, secure and robust facial recognition solution for devices ranging from smartphones to laptops and up to securing access control systems.

      The material classification is accomplished through trinamiX proprietary algorithms that run on the Qualcomm® Hexagon™ Processor on Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ mobile platforms.

      This ability to classify and identify materials based on their physical properties is a result of trinamiX research and development while operating as a wholly owned subsidiary of BASF SE, the world's leading chemical company. trinamiX is operationally independent while at the same time also having unique and unprecedented access to the expertise and experience of the entire BASF Group.

      "Qualcomm Technologies has always differentiated its product line through a unique blend of raw performance combined with industry-leading features demanded by the most innovative mobile device OEMs," said Manvinder Singh, Vice President, Product Management, Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. "We are very excited to be working with trinamiX and look forward to trinamiX getting this novel technology into the hands of customers at the earliest possible opportunity."

      "trinamiX has distinguished itself by providing the world's most innovative 3D imaging solution using our Beam Profile Analysis technology, and we are thrilled to be working with Qualcomm Technologies, the world's leading wireless technology innovator," said Dr. Ingmar Bruder, Managing Director and founder of trinamiX. "Using our patented 3D imaging technology, the solution will enable mobile devices powered by the Hexagon Processor inside Snapdragon mobile platforms to achieve a previously unattainable goal – the ability to sense live skin as part of a secure facial recognition."

    Capitalism: Bed bugs now join coronavirus
    • After disappearing from France in the 1950s, the insects have made a resurgence, according to the ministry of housing, which cited international travel and growing resistance to insecticide as the main causes.

      I think it is growing capitalism around that brought his old friends back.

    Capitalism: Mordor blocks lot of email services
    • In last month blocked

      • Protonmail
      • Tutanota
      • Startmail

      Tech was simple - first use them to send lot of email about bombs to themselves, next silently block.

      Access to sites blocked, and all internal big domains and major email providers started rejecting any email from them.
