Huawei quedó a la cabeza del mercado móvil chino y Apple cae en picada

Huawei quedó a la cabeza del mercado móvil chino y Apple cae en picada
Huawei es una empresa china y a pesar de que han logrado triunfar en el mundo, su tierra natal siempre les ha resultado muy compleja. Sucede que allá hay otros fabricantes con una visión súper local y que con ese enfoque han logrado conquistar por muchos años el mercado móvil de este mercado, que es catalogado como uno de los más importantes del mundo. Ahora, después de harto tiempo a la sombra de Oppo, Huawei al fin tomó la punta de la cuota de mercado, cumpliendo una de sus metas más deseadas pre lanzamiento del P30 a finales de marzo…

Russian ISPs plan internet disconnection test for entire country

Russian ISPs plan internet disconnection test for entire country
At a time and date during 2019 yet to be confirmed, Russia’s major ISPs will in unison temporarily disconnect their servers from the internet, effectively cutting the country off from the outside world. From the point of view of Russian internet users, everything will appear normal – as long as they are connecting to websites hosted in Russia, which will still work. Anything beyond its borders will suddenly become unavailable, presumably with a message telling them why. It’s not clear how long the test disconnection will go on for…

NASA puts a key satellite in place for its Mars 2020 mission – It’s tightening the MAVEN probe’s orbit and bringing it closer to the red planet.
NASA is preparing for the Mars 2020 mission by bringing the MAVEN probe, which will act as its antenna and connection to Earth, closer to the red planet. Over the next few months, the spacecraft will fly closer and closer to Mars until it’s only 2,800 miles above the surface, down 1,050 miles from its current orbit. That will boost the probe’s communications capabilities: As MAVEN principal investigator Bruce Jakosky explained, “It’s like using your cell phone. The closer you are to a cell tower, the stronger your signal.”…

IBM AI fails to beat human debating champion

IBM AI fails to beat human debating champion
Harish Natarajan triumphed over the bot in a rapid-fire challenge. After suffering defeat to AI at Go and Dota 2, the battle between man and machine was starting to look a little one-sided. But a human has finally notched up a win against our future robot overlords. Champion debater Harish Natarajan triumphed in a live showdown against IBM’s Miss Debater AI at the company’s Think Conference in San Francisco on Monday. The 2012 European Debate winner and IBM’s black monolith exchanged quick retorts on pre-school subsidies for 25 minutes before the crowd hailed Natarajan the victor…

Chang’e-4 powers down for second lunar night
The Chang’e-4 lander and rover entered sleep mode Monday in preparation for a second lunar nighttime on the far side of the moon. The solar-powered spacecraft, which landed in the eastern section of the Von Kármán crater on Jan. 3, powered down at 6 a.m. Eastern Monday, according to a release from the China Lunar Exploration Program in preparation for sunset around 24 hours later. Lunar nights last roughly two Earth weeks…

The Deep Learning Framework Backed By Facebook Is Getting Industry’s Attention

The Deep Learning Framework Backed By Facebook Is Getting Industry’s Attention
When it comes to deep learning frameworks, TensorFlow is one of the most preferred toolkits. However, one framework that is fast becoming the favorite of developers and data scientists is PyTorch. PyTorch is an open source project from Facebook which is used extensively within the company. For a long time, Facebook developers used another homegrown framework called Caffe2, which was adopted by academia and researchers. Last year, Facebook announced that it is merging the efforts of developing Caffe2 and PyTorch to focus on creating a unified framework that is accessible to the community…

Why Supersymmetry May Be The Greatest Failed Prediction In Particle Physics History

Why Supersymmetry May Be The Greatest Failed Prediction In Particle Physics History
Every so often, an idea comes along in theoretical physics that’s undeniably profound. When a single idea can solve a slew of existing puzzles in one fell swoop while simultaneously making new, testable predictions, it’s bound to generate a tremendous amount of interest. It can do more than provide a potential way forward; it can capture the imagination as well. If its predictions are borne out, it could kick off an entirely new understanding of the Universe… High-energy particles can collide with others, producing showers of new particles that can be seen in a detector. By reconstructing the energy, momentum, and other properties of each one, we can determine what initially collided and what was produced in this event. In nearly 50 years since supersymmetry was first proposed by Wess and Zumino, no superparticles have ever been seen.FERMILAB…
