China Develops Facial Recognition Payment System with Near-Perfect Accuracy. In an intent to move one step forward from others, China is planning to launch a facial recognition payment application with near-perfect accuracy that enables users to authorize their online transactions just by showing a picture of themselves.
Chinese researchers from the Chongqing-based research institute have developed a facial recognition system that can pick faces from a crowd with 99.8 percent accuracy from 91 angles. Academic at the Chongqing Institute of Green has set up the world's biggest Asian face database displaying more than 50 million Chinese faces. The database was compiled with help from the University of Illinois and the National University of Singapore. The face-recognition payment system is not completely developed at the moment and will come into application by the Chinese Academy of Science (CAS) in 2015. iPwned: How easy is it to mine Apple services, devices for data? Apple executives never mentioned the word "security" during the unveiling of the iPhone 6, iPhone 6+, and Apple Watch yesterday, choosing to focus on the sexier features of the upcoming iOS 8 and its connections to Apple's iCloud service.
But digital safety is certainly on everyone's mind after the massive iCloud breach that resulted in many celebrity nude photos leaking across the Internet. While the company has promised fixes to both its mobile operating system and cloud storage service in the coming weeks, the perception of Apple's current security feels iffy at best. Watch A Facial Tracking Projection Turn This Woman Into A Cyborg. It's unclear to me that people understand the effect of Moore's Law (a placeholder for advancing technology) as it relates to perception.
The more CPU cycles/technology you have, the less one's perception is accurate for what's presented. There are going to be all kinds of things (which are *super* cool imo) that we do with that new capability, but how unmoored are people going to become as they realize that what they see may not be real and only what others want them to see? I'm holding out for the killer app of the 21st century - real authentication: the assurance that what you're seeing is real, trusted, accurate, etc. Everything else is just convenience and noise. Eggbot Pro: an all-metal plotter for drawing on curved surfaces. Evil Mad Scientist Labs have updated their beloved open-source hardware Eggbot, a plotter that draws on curved surfaces, with a new all-metal model called the Eggbot Pro.
The standard pen holder included with the EggBot kit is designed to fit various art pens including Sharpie Ultra Fine Point and Sharpie Fine Point pens. However, it can actually fit almost any pen of similar size. You can even fit a lot of things that aren't pens. One example: We offer a diamond point engraving tool for EggBot (shown here), capable of etching and engraving hard materials like glass, stone, and ceramic. Learn the Basics. See more examples...

Apple adds privacy-protecting MAC spoofing (when Aaron Swartz did it, it was evidence of criminality) Apple has announced that it will spoof the MAC addresses emitted by its wireless devices as an anti-tracking measure, a change that, while welcome, is "an umbrella in a hurricane" according to a good technical explainer by the Electronic Frontier Foundation's Jeremy Gillula and Seth Schoen.
One notable and sad irony here is that MAC spoofing was held up as evidence of criminality in the indictment of Aaron Swartz: the US prosecutors characterized changing your MAC address as the sort of thing that only criminals do. Either this is proof that "when privacy is criminalized, only criminals will have privacy" or that federal prosecutors are lying assholes. These are not mutually exclusive possibilities. 30+ Free Flare and Light Photoshop Brushes Sets. Everything is provided here for free photoshop brushes Download the website.

There are many tools available to scope out the competition in order to make your business or service the most successful it can be. Below are the top ten websites you can use “spy” on the competition and see what they’re up to. 1. The Biggest Tech Industry Buzzwords, Defined for Normal People. ER doctors use Google Glass and QR codes to identify patients. A tech-savvy hospital in Boston developed a custom information-retrieval system for Google Glass, which lets ER doctors scan a QR code on the wall of each room to call up information about patients. Dr. John Halamka, CIO of Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, described the system today in his blog (a cached version is here as the original post seems to have been shortened significantly): In the Emergency Department, we’ve developed a prototype of a new information system using Google Glass, a high tech pair of glasses that includes a video camera, video screen, speaker, microphone, touch pad, and motion sensor.Here’s how it works.When a clinician walks into an emergency department room, he or she looks at [a] bar code (a QR or Quick Response code) placed on the wall.
Pourquoi est-ce que la radio n'est pas virale? En janvier, le journaliste américain Stan Alcorn publie une analyse sur le site de Digg: pourquoi le son –et a fortiori la radio– n'est pas viral sur Internet? Contrairement au texte et à l’image, contenus-rois des réseaux sociaux, les productions sonores brutes sont relativement peu échangées sur la Toile. (Non, on ne parle pas de musique). Là où pourtant les ondes affichent une santé insolente; selon Médiamétrie, 43,6 millions de Français ont écouté la radio en semaine à la fin 2013 et les podcasts sont une niche active, avec 21 millions de téléchargements par mois.
Urban Computing Reveals the Hidden City. In his essay “Walking in the City,” the French scholar Michel de Certeau talks about the “invisible identities of the visible.” He is talking specifically about the memories and personal narratives associated with a location. Until recently, this information was only accessible one-to-one—that is, by talking to people who had knowledge of a place. But what if that data became one-to-many, or even many-to-many, and easily accessible via some sort of street-level interface that could be accessed manually, or wirelessly using a smartphone? This is essentially the idea behind urban computing, where the city itself becomes a kind of distributed computer.
The pedestrian is the moving cursor; neighborhoods, buildings, and street objects become the interface; and the smartphone is used to “click” or “tap” that interface.
Which operating system will colonise the Internet of Things? - Open Source Insider. Connecting ourselves to the Internet of Things (IoT) is a process still in motion -- this we know to be true. As everything from traffic lights to fridges to cars to industrial turbines are empowered with electronic sensors and communication abilities, the "things" that make up the IoT need: a) wider penetration into society, b) an standardised set of services and protocols to operate upon, c) software developers to target IoT apps and, d) a plethora of other emerging factors too.
Some industry commentators believe that Android has greater potential to provide the unifying power needed here than any other single operating system.
