Siemens and IBM extend alliance to IoT for manufacturing

Learn more. IBM and Siemens this week expanded an existing alliance to include deployments of MindSphere, a managed internet of things (IoT) service provided by Siemens, on an instance of the Red Hat OpenShift platform. The goal is to make it simpler to build edge computing applications that process and analyze data as it is being created, Siemens senior VP Raymond Kok said. As part of that effort, Siemens was looking for an application development platform based on Kubernetes that would enable the conglomerate to build and deploy applications based on a modern microservices-based platform.

“We were looking for an industrial-grade Kubernetes platform,” Kok said. Manufacturers currently use MindSphere to collect and analyze real-time sensor data from products, plants, systems, and machines. VentureBeat. The Pre-Modern Museum: What Is A Cabinet Of Curiosities?

Air Force Confirms, Then Retracts Statement That One Of Its RC-135W Spy Planes Flew Over Taiwan

Air Force has confirmed that an RC-135W Rivet Joint spy plane made a highly unusual flight over the northern end of the island of Taiwan earlier this week as part of an operational intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance mission. The United States has also just approved a new round of potential arms sales to the island's government, including short-range quasi-ballistic missiles capable of reaching the mainland. All of this follows a recent spate of threatening messaging from Beijing aimed at Taipei and its allies in Washington. Update: On Oct. 23, 2020, Air Force Lieutenant Colonel Tony Wickman, the Director of Public Affairs for Pacific Air Forces, reached out to The War Zone to say that the original confirmation of the RC-135W flying over Northern Taiwan had been in error. "On Wednesday, my staff responded to your query regarding an RC-135 flight (link to story below) and I must inform you that what we gave you was incorrect," he said.

Stephen Hawking’s death in March incited us all take a moment and think about the famed physicist’s impact on the scientific world, and the myriad ways his research affected the way we think about the universe.

As it turns out, he wasn’t exactly done. Hawking’s final paper was finally published Wednesday, in the Journal of High Energy Physics, and while it’s not exactly the science-shattering work many outlets are reporting it to be, it still puts a pretty interesting, Hawking-esque spin on one of theoretical physics’ most discussed concepts: the multiverse.
