Smart machines tend to elicit both awe and deep anxieties. This is especially true in health care, where people’s hopes and fears tend to get magnified quickly. Consider three issues that get a lot of attention: the use of medical records, the “human touch” in medical care, and the future of jobs in the industry. On balance, are people more glass half-full or half-empty? Accenture’s research points to an optimism that may surprise expert observers.
Uber is sweetening the pot for its Uber Freight offering aimed at commercial trucking. The company is launching Uber Freight Plus today, a program designed to help alleviate costs around some of the more expensive aspects of owning and operating a transport vehicle, including fuel, tire and maintenance discounts, as well as new purchase bonuses for buying either brand new or used trucks.
Flying cars are more down to earth than ever – at least, in that their physical design is moving closer to something resembling a car. The AeroMobil 5th generation all-electric VTOL (vertical take-off and landing) concept is no exception, with styling that makes it look sort of like a near-future SUV or crossover, with a wide nose but a sleek, low design that suggests sporty performance.
Why is it that so many people struggle to get their arms around web and application security? Some of the answers to this question are quite obvious, but others are less so. Having tested the security of hundreds of applications over the past decade and a half, I’ve concluded that web security breakdowns occur for numerous reason that deserve our attention.
Building a GPU-fueled infrastructure service is not a simple matter for a startup to undertake, but that’s precisely what Paperspace has set out to do. Today, it took it to the next level when it announced Gradient, a service platform that eliminates the need to deploy servers for AI and machine learning projects.

When my parents first joined Facebook to stalk me, I thought the social network was going to become uncool and fade away like Myspace, Friendster, and the other social networks that came and went before it.
In the military, many twentysomethings more responsibility than their civilian peers. But even so, transitioning out of the service can be a difficult process for the 360,000 U.S. veterans who do so every year. To make it easier, remember that you control your narrative when you’re talking with hiring managers or recruiters; talk up the transferrable skills you’ve learned, such as leading people or managing crises. Don’t undervalue your experience. Many private-sector companies care less about industry expertise than they do about your ability to work hard and learn quickly. Remember that your first civilian job may not be a fit — and that’s OK. A lot of people take a winding path. Remember that there is no perfect transition and just keep your focus on the long term.

The Icoboard is a plug-in for the Raspberry Pi with a Lattice iCE FPGA onboard. Combined with a cheap A/D converter, [OpenTechLab] build a software-defined radio using all open source tools. He found some inexpensive converters that cost about $25 and were fast enough (32 MHz) for the purpose at hand. The boards also had a digital to analog converter and he was able to find the data sheets. You can see a video with the whole project covered, below.
A “Static Grass Applicator” is very specialized tool used by model makers to create realistic grass. Don’t feel bad if you didn’t know that, neither did we. Anyway, the idea is that you distribute a fine filament over the surface, and then use static electricity to make the “blades” of grass stand up vertically. This is a huge improvement over the old school method of manually placing the grass on the model, but the tool itself is somewhat expensive, at least for a decent one.
