Robots and on-board ovens deliver on Zume’s promise of better pizza | TechCrunch
techcrunch.com- John Mannes
 Today, in a world of bacon-wrapped crust and custom-modified Chevys with pizza warmers, being excited about pizza is just not as easy as it used to be. Zume Pizza founder Julia Collins and her Elon Musk-esque approach to pizza doesn’t care much for the rest of the pizza industry. In her mind, the pizzavations of the previous decades are irrelevant if the pies arrive soggy, cold and… Read More

IBM Watson created the first AI-made movie trailer, and its eerie
Say what you will, but IBM Watson is one resourceful supercomputer. We’ve previously seen the AI describe the contents of photos, predict the most popular toys during Christmas season and gauge your emotional state – all of that with an exceptional accuracy. Now IBM Watson has added yet another skill to its arsenal as it just learned how to make movie trailers. Earlier this week, 20th Century Fox trusted the supercomputer with the task to create the trailer for its upcoming sci-fi drama Morgan..  show all text

Employers are stalking your Facebook and this startup helps them
mashable.com- Ariel Bogle
For good or ill, social media is now fair game for recruiters and HR departments when checking out job candidates. Still, it can be messy to Google-stalk potential hires and track down their various profiles. A Sydney-based startup, The Social Index, has built a tool that aims to streamline that process. From early 2015, the company has been building the platform and working with a few trusted businesses to really "push on it," founder Fiona McLean told Mashable.

Next Big Future: AMD, GlobalFoundries Focus on Path to 7 nanometers
nextbigfuture.com- brian wang
AMD’s recently-released Polaris GPUs and upcoming “Zen”-based processors are being made at the GlobalFoundries fab 8 plant in Malta, NY.

Kaby Lake, released this week, is Intel’s third generation of processors to use the 14nm process, while AMD has just begun shipping 14nm production silicon (Polaris GPUs). Interestingly, we learned this week that GlobalFoundries is skipping the 10nm process. A statement from AMD said that ..  show all text

The human ear is a miracle of mechanical evolution. It allows us to hear an astonishing range of sounds and to communicate and navigate in the world. It’s also easy to damage and difficult to repair. Hearing aids are still large, uncomfortable and as yet unable to deliver the rich and wonderful sounds we take for granted. Yet there may be a new way for us to replace damaged hearing from an unlikely source — the... read more
