Here's How Google's Self-Driving Cars Avoid Hitting Pedestrians

Unlike highways, which are typically straightforward navigation-wise, city driving is full of twists and turns and unpredictable inputs like pedestrians, cyclists, train tracks and, of course, other vehicles. After logging 700,000 autonomous miles in the Mountain View area near Google’s headquarters, the company has released a new video of the car in action, showing how its 360 degree LiDAR laser scanning technology can take complex traffic situations and make them easy to navigate.

Here’s a bit from Google’s blog post on the video: As it turns out, what looks chaotic and random on a city street to the human eye is actually fairly predictable to a computer.

Hulu Plus subscribers top 2 million

In fact, Hulu Plus — the streaming service's $8-a-month premium offering — has hit two million subscribers, reports The New York Times.

Les dix mauvaises habitudes inhérentes à la technologie

La réponse est généralement non ... La loi de Moore n’a plus que 10 ans à vivre. L’âge d’or du silicium aura une fin, tout le monde est d’accord là-dessus, mais quand ?

La loi de Moore n’a plus que 10 ans à vivre

Personne ne saurait le dire. Personne, ou presque. Le physicien théoricien Michio Kaku prédit sa fin dans dix ans. La loi de Moore, une des théories de base de l’industrie informatique, explique que le nombre de transistors des microprocesseurs sur une puce de silicium double tous les deux ans. Et même si ce n’est pas une loi physique, cet énoncé empirique s’est révélé exact depuis son énonciation en 1975. En effet, l’augmentation exponentielle de la puissance de nos ordinateurs ne pourra pas suivre avec pour seule technologie le silicium.

Michio Kaku finit sa démonstration en annonçant que l’on approche d’une période où les technologies passées, et maîtrisées, devront cohabiter avec de toutes nouvelles approches, comme les ordinateurs moléculaires et quantiques.

Judge: An IP-Address Doesn’t Identify a Person (or BitTorrent Pirate) A landmark ruling in one of the many mass-BitTorrent lawsuits in the US has delivered a severe blow to a thus far lucrative business.

Judge: An IP-Address Doesn’t Identify a Person (or BitTorrent Pirate)

Among other things, New York Judge Gary Brown explains in great detail why an IP-address is not sufficient evidence to identify copyright infringers. According to the Judge this lack of specific evidence means that many alleged BitTorrent pirates have been wrongfully accused by copyright holders. Mass-BitTorrent lawsuits have been dragging on for more than two years in the US, involving more than a quarter million alleged downloaders. The copyright holders who start these cases generally provide nothing more than an IP-address as evidence.

They then ask the courts to grant a subpoena, allowing them to ask Internet providers for the personal details of the alleged offenders. Walter Lewin Promo. Back to the Basics: Learn to Use Keyboard Shortcuts Like a Ninja. Brydge iPad Keyboard. Look again.
