Protecting your child from cyberattacks during remote learning

Posted by in categories: cybercrime/malcode, internet

With thousands of students using the internet to attend class remotely, cybersecurity experts are raising concerns about children becoming targets for hackers. Many Central New York school districts, like the Central Square Central School District, sent laptops home with students. Central Square uses a software called GoGuardian that flags unsafe or inappropriate online material. Superintendent Thomas Colabufo says parents are happy to know that the security feature is in place.

This Horse Cloned from 40-Year-Old Material Could Save Its Species

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, genetics

Recently, San Diego Zoo partnered up with the wildlife preservation group Revive and Restore and a pet cloning company ViaGen Equine to create an exact copy of Kuporovic. The embryo was planted in a surrogate mother, a common horse.

Shawn Walker, the chief science officer at ViaGen Equine reports “This new Przewalski’s colt was born fully healthy and reproductively normal. He is head butting and kicking when his space is challenged, and he is demanding milk supply from his surrogate mother.”

More laser power allows faster production of ultra-precise polymeric parts across 12 orders of magnitude

Posted by in categories: 3D printing, information science, nanotechnology

A high-power laser, optimized optical pathway, a patented adaptive resolution technology, and smart algorithms for laser scanning have enabled UpNano, a Vienna-based high-tech company, to produce high-resolution 3D-printing as never seen before.

“Parts with nano- and microscale can now be printed across 12 orders of magnitude—within times never achieved previously. This has been accomplished by UpNano, a spin-out of the TU Wien, which developed a high-end two-photon polymerization (2PP) 3D-printing system that can produce polymeric parts with a volume ranging from 100 to 1012 cubic micrometers. At the same time the printer allows for a nano- and microscale resolution,” the company said in a statement.

Recently the company demonstrated this remarkable capability by printing four models of the Eiffel Tower ranging from 200 micrometers to 4 centimeters—with perfect representation of all minuscule structures within 30 to 540 minutes. With this, 2PP 3D-printing is ready for applications in R&D and industry that seemed so far impossible.

The Mathematics Behind Deep Learning

Posted by in categories: mathematics, robotics/AI

Deep neural networks (DNNs) are essentially formed by having multiple connected perceptrons, where a perceptron is a single neuron. Think of an artificial neural network (ANN) as a system which contains a set of inputs that are fed along weighted paths. These inputs are then processed, and an output is…
