IBM have an interesting tutorial on how to setup a mesh network using Raspberry Pis, which will allow IoT sensors to connect to the mesh network but also allow other devices to connect to the internet using the mesh network as a bridge.
Researchers at Brown University have demonstrated a system to store information in metabolomes, arrays of liquid mixtures containing sugars, amino acids and other molecules. The team successfully encoded a 2KB file image file.
Google's The Launchpad have published a machine learning case study by The Frontier Car Group. The case study describes how the company, with the help of Lunchpad mentors, implemented a machine learning pipeline to predict the selling price of used cars month over month.
Scientists at TU Delft in The Netherlands have created the world's smallest autonomous racing drone. The drone weighs 72g and is 10cm in diameter. It relies heavily on algorithms to predict a safe path through the course instead of multiple sensors and cameras. The drone can navigate the course at an average of two metres per second, which is on par with larger racing drones.
Stewart McGown over on Github has published code to break up encode files as Base64 binary data and store them across multiple Google Docs, which aren't counted towards your Google Drive storage quota.
Researchers at Ben-Gurion University in Israel have created a drone that can seemlessly transition from flying to driving. The FStar drone uses the same 4 motors to power the flight propellors as well as the wheels, and it can also adjust the height at which it drives.
Wolfram have launched their Wolfram Engine as a free package for developers. Described by Stephen Wolfram himself on his blog, the Wolfram engine implements the Wolfram Language, which in turn offers a huge range of computational intelligence and algorithmic processing, access to the Wolfram Knowledgebase as well as over 5000 abstracted functions like machine learning, visualisation and image computation.
Forbes have published a piece about how Ford Motor Company have been using AI for 15 years in their manufacturing and quality assurance processes. More recently, Ford use AI to manage inventory, to simulate their motorsport vehicles before track testing and of course, in their fleet of cars to manage their all-wheel drive system among other things. They expect to launch their self-driving car fleet in 2021.
Scientists have published the results of the study of the NASA twin astronauts Scott and Mark Kelly in Science Magazine. The experiment studies the physiological, molecular and cognitive changes that can happen to a human during a prolonged space mission. Scott Kelly was in the International Space Station for one year while his twin Mark stayed on earth, which allowed scientists to compare the effects of the space mission between the two identical twins.
