Two small satellites, whirling through Earth's low orbits, had “the potential for a conjunction.” Those are the words Major Cody Chiles, spokesperson for the Joint Force Space Component Command, uses to mean "the chance of a collision." The satellites, one from a company called Capella Space and the other from Spire Global, could smack into each other.
But its many pages make clear that while the Silicon Valley hype around robocars may have cooled, progress toward the day when humans are unshackled from the steering wheel continues: The 48 autonomous vehicle developers that tested their tech on public roads collectively drove 2.05 million miles between December 2017 and November 2018, up from 500,000 the year before.
The T-Mobile-Sprint Merger Is Scrambling Telecom Politics US representative Anna Eshoo (D-California) says AT&T and Verizon effectively dominate the wireless market, and as a result, "Americans pay some of the highest prices for mobile wireless service in the developed world."

A 6-Legged Robot Stares at the Sky to Navigate Like a Desert Ant Dupeyroux et al., Sci. Robot. 4, eaau0307 (2019) Sensing polarized light is an indispensable skill for the ants, and perhaps soon it will also serve robots and autonomous cars.
(Unlike the dark, closed goggles of VR, AR glasses use see-through technology to insert virtual apparitions into the real world.) Eventually we’ll be able to search physical space as we might search a text—“find me all the places where a park bench faces sunrise along a river.” We will hyperlink objects into a network of the physical, just as the web hyperlinked words, producing marvelous benefits and new products.
And indeed, the resolution’s transportation recommendations are sweeping: that the country invest seriously in zero-emission vehicle infrastructure and manufacturing, in “clean, affordable, and accessible” public transit, and in so much high-speed rail that air travel is no longer necessary.
Russian Doll May Be Perfect, But You Won't Be Satisfied The Netflix series is far and away the best original new show of the past two years—but its existential thrust guaranteed that not everyone would be happy with the ending.
Traverso says the next project is to test the capsules in larger animals, to understand what happens if they inject repeat doses day after day, as a Type 2 diabetic would require for it to be useful.
"The design is solid, based on trusted components, and likely to adequately protect users of the products integrating this new algorithm." The Google researchers says that they are confident in Adiantum's integrity, and they hope it will help call attention to the importance of storage encryption for IoT and other low-resource devices.
A week into the new year, federal investigators announced that the latest outbreak of foodborne illness, from romaine lettuce, seemed to be over : There hadn’t been any cases of illness caused by a dangerous variety of E.
“When you visit the same piece of sky again and again, you can recognize, ‘Oh, this galaxy has a new star in it that was not there when we were there a year or three months ago,” says Rick White, an astronomer at the Space Telescope Science Institute , which hosts Pan-STARRS’s archive.
(By this, I mean systems that use the blockchain data structure but don’t have the above three elements.) In general, they have some external limitation on who can interact with the blockchain and its features.
A Google Chrome Extension Will Save You From Unsafe Passwords Casey Chin Data breaches that compromise people's usernames and passwords have become so common, and used in crime for so long, that millions of stolen credential pairs have actually become practically worthless to criminals, circulating online for free.
Thus began the contentious career of the notion of “actuarial fairness,” an idea that would spread in time far beyond the insurance industry into policing and paroling, education, and eventually AI, igniting fierce debates along the way over the push by our increasingly market-oriented society to define fairness in statistical and individualistic terms rather than relying on the morals and community standards used historically.
Best Super Bowl Ads, From Chance's Doritos to 2 Chainz' Expenses While some brands have opted out of football's biggest night, plenty of others—from startups to (ahem) Chainz—were willing to pony up for 30 seconds of persuasion.
The Future of Super Bowl Ads Doesn’t Include TV—or Football From press-generating live musicals to viral tweets, brands are figuring out that they can get a lot more than 30 seconds for their money. It’s called Skittles Commercial: The Broadway Musical .
University of Michigan “We thought the walking would be limited by the duration of the battery outdoors,” Grizzle says. (Very Game of Thrones , by the way, all the fire and now ice.) “We all want to use robots in conditions where people could be at risk,” Grizzle says.
“It knows what the blocks look like and where they are, but it doesn't really understand how they interact with each other,” says MIT roboticist Nima Fazeli, lead author on the new paper.
As you can imagine, there's a bunch of cool physics to talk about for some of these events. In this case, the event is the Herculean Pull. But if you're both pulling on the same pole, you need to use some physics.
Morris, for example, sees posting something publicly to a Facebook feed as a yearning for interconnectedness, while a private messaging thread is a quest for what she calls attunement, a way to strengthen a bond between two people.
Collins Aerospace's M-Flex Duet is a self-service snack bar that can fold out of the way for landing and takeoff. Rockwell Collins Industry supplier Collins Aerospace wants to reclaim the eight feet or more of open space in front of the emergency exit doors on widebody, twin-aisle jets.
"If the goal is to allow cross-app traffic, and it’s not required to be encrypted, then what happens?" Matthew Green, Johns Hopkins University In a Wall Street Journal opinion piece on Thursday evening, Zuckerberg wrote that, "There’s no question that we collect some information for ads—but that information is generally important for security and operating our services as well." An indelible identity across Facebook's brands could have security benefits like enabling stronger anti-fraud protections.
Earlier this month, researchers from the Oxford Internet Institute published a study in the journal Nature Human Behavior that plainly illustrates how that happened: The gigantic surveys underlying many tech-use studies can be interpreted in such a variety of ways that two different researchers looking at the exact same data set can—and have!—reached opposite conclusions about the association between screen time and well-being.
