    Leak: LG’s V60 packs a 5,000 mAh battery and a headphone jack
    If LG‘s flagships have had one consistent issue over the past few iterations, its been battery life. While other manufacturers had moved onto massive batteries proportionate to ever-larger screens, LG typically maintained batteries smaller than the competition. That seems to be the case no more: The upcoming LG V60 packs a massive 5,000 mAh battery, putting it ahead of almost every existing flagship-class phone on the market. And oh yeah, it still has a headphone jack. The source of the l

    Report: US Department of Justice holds China responsible for 2017 Equifax breach
    The US Department of Justice (DOJ) today brought espionage charges against the four Chinese military hackers allegedly responsible for the 2017 Equifax data breach. Widely considered one of the largest data breaches in US history, the 2017 attack exposed the personal data of nearly 150 million people. Equifax was fined more than $700 million for its role – investigators concluded that it was lackadaisical security practices on the part of Equifax employees that allowed China’s spies

    Mitsubishi built a fake skylight that might come close to the real thing
    There are few things more soul-crushing than the dull white hue of fluorescent office lighting. Unfortunately, natural lighting isn’t always an option for offices stuck in the center of a large building, but Mistubishi thinks it’s now able to create a convincing facsimile with a cleverly designed LED skylight that simulates daylight patterns. Of course, Mitsubishi isn’t the first to try to emulate daylight with what is essentially a big LED screen, but there are a few things t

    This AI could reunite families after an earthquake
    A new AI prototype could transform how earthquake aftermaths are managed, by predicting the safest routes that families can take to find their loved ones. The idea first emerged in the ImpactHub Istanbul, a social innovation centre in a city where a future earthquake is all but inevitable. The last time a devastating earthquake had struck Turkey was in 1999, around 150-200 kilometers from the capital. Official records put the death toll at 18,373 people.  Scientists believe that

    The United States is likely to have missed out on around $1.7 billion by auctioning off seized Bitcoin way too soon. Using back-dated market rates, cryptocurrency enthusiast Jameson Lopp built a handy portal to estimate the amount of money those sales have generated since 2014.

    AI predicts Oscar winners — but betting sites do it better
    You don’t normally need to be a fortune teller to predict the Oscar winners, but the Academy has sprung a few surprises in recent years. Last night, a team of data scientists tested whether their machine learning model could outsmart the bookmakers — with mixed results. The boffins behind the BigML machine learning platform made their predictions with a Deepnets model, an optimised implementation of the Deep Neural Networks supervised learning technique. They first identified the fa

    I was hit with some cruel reality while writing this article: I’m an old fuck. But, before we get to this realisation, let’s get all David Copperfield and backtrack. When I was thinking about this latest edition of the ‘A Love Letter to…’ series, I was pondering exactly what it was that made me love the Western Digital (WD from herein) PR2100 NAS (AKA network-attached storage) drive so much.

I usually wouldn’t bother covering the controversy here if not for two things. First of all, even though I currently live in Sopot, Poland, Iowa is a significant part of my life.

This week, Google introduced Meena, a chatbot that can “chat about… anything.” Meena is the latest of many efforts by large tech companies trying to solve one of the toughest challenges of artificial intelligence: language. “Current open-domain chatbots have a critical flaw — they often don’t make sense.

    How ‘product-led growth’ can propel your SaaS company to success — no sales team needed
    If you’re selling Software-as-a-Service (SaaS), you could do worse than follow the example of tech giants like Slack, Dropbox, Survey Monkey, Altassian, etc. These super-successful companies have done awfully well with a “product-led growth” approach, and it makes sense to emulate them. I’m not too proud to say my team cribbed off their playbook, as we managed to recently sail past 1,000 enterprise clients for our own SaaS solution by doing so. I believe the reason why t

    This AI model improves and colorizes old videos and the results are stunning
    Last week, my colleague Tristan wrote about an AI developer who used machine learning to upscale the famous 1895 train scene to 4K at 60 frames per second. While this was a great short watch, it made me wonder about using AI to restore and enhance old videos. Thankfully, I stumbled upon a paper featured by the Two Minute Papers YouTube channel over the weekend that aims to improve and colorize these videos. The model uses Temporal Neural Network to identify and correct defects such as
