VIDEO: The Future of War Conference 2016. Hors-série | 2008 Autour du Genji monogatari. Entre 2004 et 2008, le Centre d'Études Japonaises de l'Inalco a organisé quatre journées d’études autour du grand roman japonais du XIe siècle, le Genji Monogatari : la première, centrée sur les questions littéraires, la seconde consacrée à l’époque qui a vu la naissance du Roman du Genji, la troisième autour de la peinture, la calligraphie et la musique, et la quatrième, organisée avec l’Université Rikkyō, sur le thème de la réception de ce roman. Lors de chacune de ces rencontres, plutôt que d’aborder l’œuvre d’une manière frontale, nous avons cherché à en faire un catalyseur entre nos champs de recherche respectifs. Les articles que nous présentons ici sont des échos des deux premières journées. Le versant littéraire s’organise d’abord selon une perspective diachronique et retrace le cheminement qui conduit à l’écriture de ce roman, puis sa réception – adaptation et utilisation – dans les époques ultérieures.

For the past few weeks, rumors have swirled that AMD would soon unveil a dual-GPU product based on its Fiji architecture and aimed at the high-end enthusiast market. AMD originally planned to announce the card last fall, but then delayed that announcement; with 14nm cards coming this summer it wasn’t clear if AMD would launch a dual GPU at all.

That fear has been laid to rest at AMD’s Capsaicin event today — the dual-GPU Radeon Pro Duo is coming to market at the eye-watering price of $1,499. The Radeon Pro Duo is a dual-GPU water-cooled card with up to 16TFLOPS of single-precision performance. AMD isn’t giving other hardware specs at the moment, but we can make a few predictions based on what we know about the Fury X. RAM is likely 8GB (divided into 2x 4GB) since that’s a limit of first-generation High Bandwidth Memory (HBM) and nothing we’ve heard from AMD or its partners suggests it found a way around that problem. AMD partnered with Maingear for its demo units. Targeting developers. COrE Mission - We propose COrE, the Cosmic Origins Explorer, a Class M space mission whose aim is to deliver high precision, reference-quality, full-sky maps of the polarized microwave and sub-mm sky in 15 bands ranging from 45GHz to 795GHz.

Polarization maps in this frequency range will enable an unprecedented exploration of from the origins of stars and the origin of cosmic structure to the origin of the Universe itself. At the higher frequencies COrE will observe all-sky polarization maps for the first time. These maps will uncover the role played by magnetic fields in star formation; revolutionize our picture of the three-dimensional galactic magnetic field and of the properties of interstellar dust; determine directly the initial conditions for star formation in the diffuse ISM; and discover, characterize and time-resolve a large number of new polarized galactic and extragalactic point sources Please refer to chapter 1 of the proposal for further details. Global Fishing Watch claims success in big data approach to fighting illegal catches. The international marine advocacy group Oceana says big data analyses of satellite tracking data for fishing ships can be used to monitor fishing activity, and to spot illegal catches in marine protected areas.

Jacqueline Savitz, vice president for the US at Oceana, is quoted as saying in a press release: "This web-based technology will provide near real-time monitoring of global fishing activity to the public for free, to improve transparency and traceability in the global fishing fleet. It will allow journalists to track vessels of interest, scientists to study the interactions between fishing and ocean processes, governments to enforce policies aimed at rebuilding fisheries.

" Public access to the data is expected later this year. Global Fishing Watch was launched in November 2014 as a collaboration between Oceana, the non-profit remote sensing and digital mapping organisation SkyTruth, and Google's Earth Outreach. § test note xxxxxxxx. * Circuit des arts visuels et des métiers d'arts de la Gaspésie.

The top cybersecurity official at one of the country’s foremost scientific institutions says the federal government is too secretive about the threat tips it shares. Virginia Tech is no stranger to hackers. Randy Marchany, the school’s chief information security officer, says he assumes the attackers are already inside the networks. The university’s attack space includes power generation networks, campus police databases, research files, student records and retail payment systems, among other sensitive digital operations, he said. “I’m not the CISO of a university; I’m the CISO of a small town,” said the nearly 40-year information security veteran at a cybersecurity conference Tuesday.

Marchany lamented what he says has been a growing trend during the last couple of years of the government restricting information about ongoing hack campaigns — information that could help his staff identify the suspicious activity they already glimpse on systems. “Have we been breached? Editorial : « Une épreuve de vérité » Le Monde | • Mis à jour le | Par Jérôme Fenoglio (Directeur du "Monde") Editorial du « Monde ». Cette fois, c’est Bruxelles, le cœur de l’Europe, qui a été frappée par les terroristes islamistes. Ils ont visé cette ville libre, où l’humour, l’irrespect, une manière belge de ne pas se prendre au sérieux, est à l’opposé de ce que ces barbares ont dans la tête : des certitudes de pacotille, la haine de l’autre, la violence des « purs ».

Le galimatias mortifère que véhiculent ces djihadistes venus d’Europe est le contraire de ce que représente Bruxelles la cosmopolite, capitale d’un projet européen symboliquement pris pour cible. A chaque fois, cette violence, pas si aveugle que ça, nous surprend. Cela ne devrait pas. Nul dénigrement du travail des services de police et de renseignement dans ce constat – qu’ils sont d’ailleurs les premiers à faire. Demi-mensonge Mais il ne faut pas entretenir de faux espoirs.
