“It just really shocked me, because I came into this project thinking that these phones are really protecting user data well,” says Johns Hopkins cryptographer Matthew Green, who oversaw the research.
More than 150 years ago, a renowned physician named John Snow walked the gritty streets of London’s working-class Golden Square neighborhood, not far from his office in the city’s Soho district, knocking on the doors of residents felled by the cholera epidemic.
He says he has taken more than 60 driverless rides in the two months since Waymo opened driverless service up to the public.I watched three hours of videos of customers testing out Tesla's technology.
That, at least, is the case for one Valve employee, who, as explained by Rock Paper Shotgun, abuseD his power over the game DOTA 2 in order to, uh, ban someone who made him mad.
While there’s little evidence to support that Facebook is biased against conservative users, University of Virginia professors Brent Kitchens and Steven Johnson found that, by maximizing for engagement and attention, Facebook’s algorithms actively push conservatives toward more radical content than liberal users.
There are more than a thousand asteroids with diameters larger than Didymos and Dimorphos combined, and if any of those were to strike Earth, it could lead to mass extinction and the collapse of civilization.“Everyone knows it’s possible to hit an asteroid,” says Justin Atchison, a DART mission designer at the Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory.
Two days after morbid Sunday, Johnson was transferred to intensive care.His former communications director Will Walden assured the British public that Johnson was “far fitter than he looks.” Try not to become too much of a BMI know-it-all.
President Trump is isolating himself in the White House, having tested positive for the coronavirus last night.Emily Gurley, an epidemiologist at Johns Hopkins School of Public Health, says the first step is to work out when Trump likely became infectious.
At one point John Mills and his wife, Erica, were members at three different gyms, where John could lift weights and Erica could take indoor cycling classes.Mills quickly figured out how to cast Peloton classes from the bike’s tablet to the playroom’s giant projector screen, using a native Android streaming option.

“But then there's a resolution limit to that technology,” says Swansea University materials scientist Rich Johnston, lead author on the new paper.“You can't really make out features, you can't do accurate measurements” at human-scale resolution, Johnston says.
The clinic, Idant, had opened three years earlier, one of the country’s first commercial sperm banks.

In 1966, at McKay’s urging, Conway decided that he would discover the symmetry group of the Leech lattice, no matter how long it took.“He sort of shut himself up in this room and said goodbye to his wife, and was [planning] to work all day every day for a year,” said Richard Borcherds, a mathematician at the University of California, Berkeley, and a former student of Conway’s.
The study, released on March 4 by researchers at the Harbin Institute of Technology in Shenzhen and Johns Hopkins University, used Chinese CDC data on about 1,200 people exposed to Covid-19 patients to determine if the virus infected different age groups at different rates.
Now, some public health experts say they are skeptical that Trump’s European travel ban will contain the spread of the novel coronavirus here in the United States.
The retired NASA mathematician, who died Monday at the age of 101, calculated the trajectories of the agency’s first space missions, including John Glenn ’s 1962 spaceflight in which he became the first American to orbit the planet, and the first moon landing in 1969.
Normally, Strand embarks on these missions himself, or deploys one of his experienced colleagues at Black Hills Information Security.John Strand, Black Hills Information Security.
In 2005, multidisciplinary artist Jay Mark Johnson flew to Germany to purchase a very special, very expensive new gadget—a hand-made digital camera capable of capturing 360-degree panoramic images at resolutions as high as 500 megapixels.
Their reliance on toxic, flammable materials means the smallest defect can result in exploding gadgets .A team of researchers led by physicists at the Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory believed a safer battery was possible, and for the past five years they have been developing a lithium-ion battery that’s seemingly immune to failure.
During a Q&A with actor Chris Evans following a screening of their new film Knives Out at the WIRED25 conference Saturday night in San Francisco, Johnson said that while he’s mostly had positive interactions with Star Wars fans, “if someone is responding to diversity negatively, fuck ‘em.”.
“I just think he felt this was the correct way to think about mathematics,” said Michael Hopkins, a mathematician at Harvard and Lurie’s graduate school adviser.

Alex Davies covers autonomous vehicles and other transportation machines for WIRED.Johnson-Roberson and Vasudevan, who jointly direct the University of Michigan and Ford Center for Autonomous Vehicles, cofounded Refraction AI, the latest self-driving outfit to announce plans to change the way people and their things move about the planet.
In a background phone call with WIRED following that keynote, Apple broke down that privacy element, explaining how its "encrypted and anonymous" system avoids leaking your location data willy nilly, even as your devices broadcast a Bluetooth signal explicitly designed to let you track your device.
