    On a more human level, it would be interesting to go back in time to World Wars I and II, where a constant refrain of the sailors and airmen who hunted subs was the sheer tedium of the search.

If nothing else, farming out sub-hunting to the robots will make chasing subs a bit less dull....

    An anonymous reader quotes a report from Digital Trends: Data is the new oil, or so the saying goes. So why are we giving it away for nothing more than ostensibly free email, better movie recommendations, and more accurate search results? It's an important question to ask in a world where the accumulation and scraping of data is worth billions of dollars -- and even a money-losing company with enough data about its users can be worth well into the eight-figure region. The essential bargain that's driven by today's tech giants is the purest form of cognitive capitalism: users feed in their brains -- whether this means solving a CAPTCHA to train AI systems or clicking links on Google to help it learn which websites are more important than others. In exchange for this, we get access to ostensibly "free" services, while simultaneously helping to train new technologies which may one day put large numbers of us out of business. In an age in which concepts like universal basic income are in...

    According to The Washington Post, Russia government actors bought Facebook advertisements during the 2016 election cycle that sought to exploit and divide based on hot-button racial issues. Some of the ads promoted civil rights groups such as Black Lives Matter, while others criticized them in an effort to sow division. The Hill reports: Facebook is handing over some 3,000 ads to congressional investigators as part of probes into the Kremlin's alleged effort to influence the outcome of last year's presidential election. Other ads allegedly highlighted Hillary Clinton's support among Muslim women and promoted anti-Muslim and anti-immigrant messages. Facebook didn't comment on the story, but did refer to a statement earlier this month from its chief privacy officer, Alex Stamos: "Rather, the ads and accounts appeared to focus on amplifying divisive social and political messages across the idealogical spectrum -- touching on topics from LGBT matters to race issues to immigration to gun ri...

    Dubai staged a test flight on Monday for what it said would soon be the world's first drone taxi service under an ambitious plan by the United Arab Emirates city to lead the Arab world in innovation. From a report: The flying taxi developed by German drone firm Volocopter resembles a small, two-seater helicopter cabin topped by a wide hoop studded with 18 propellers. It was unmanned for its maiden test run in a ceremony arranged for Dubai Crown Prince Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed. Meant to fly without remote control guidance and with a maximum flight duration of 30 minutes, it comes with plenty of fail-safes in case of trouble: back-up batteries, rotors and, for a worst case scenario, a couple of parachutes. ...

    MojoKid writes: Intel has officially launched its Skylake-X processor offering in response to AMD's Ryzen Threadripper series of desktop CPUs. The new Core i9-7980XE and Core i9-7960X are 18 and 16-core configurations respectively, with 2.6GHz and 2.8GHz base clocks and 4.4GHz max boost clocks. Both chips support Intel HyperThreading, with 36 threads of processing for the 7980XE and 32 for the 7960X, while both also have 44 lanes of PCI Express connectivity and support for DDR4-2666MHz memory. Both chips also utilize Intel's X299 chipset platform and are LGA 2066 socket compatible. The Core i9-7980XE has 24.75MB of shared L3 cache, 1MB of L2 cache per core, and a TDP of 165W. The Core i9-7960X's details are essentially same, though two processor cores and the cache associated with them have been lopped off. The Core i9-7960X has a couple of advantages, however, in that its base clock is 200MHz higher than the flagship Core i9-7980XE and it has higher all-core frequency boost to 3.6GHz,...

    An anonymous reader quotes a report from CNBC: Instagram said Monday that it's added another 100 million monthly users. That brings the photo-sharing app to 800 million monthly active users, up from 700 million in April, according to Carolyn Everson, vice president of global marketing solutions at Facebook, who spoke at an Advertising Week event in New York City. Five hundred million of those are daily active users, the company said. That means that Instagram is still ahead of rival Snap in terms of users, based on Snap's last report. Snap said in August that it had 173 million daily active users. Time spent watching video on Instagram is up more than 80 percent year over year, the company also said on Monday, and four times as many videos are being produced every day on Instagram compared with a year ago. ...

    Owners at the Model 3 Owners Club compiled a list of over 80 different features of the Model 3 they're curious about, including questions about how the car operates (does the card unlock all the doors, where does the UI show you that your turn signals are active), physical aspects of the car (what does the tow hitch attachment look like, how much stuff can you fit in the front and rear cargo areas), and subjective details (how aggressive is the energy regeneration, does that wood trim cause glare). Ars Technica reports: So far, we've learned a few interesting facts. For instance, the windshield wipers are turned on and off by a stalk like just about every other car on the market, but changing the speed (slow/fast/intermittent) is handled by a menu on the touchscreen. The stalk also does double duty turning on the headlights, and there are no rain sensors for the wipers. The touchscreen UI really is the only way to interact with every other function, according to owners, even the rear a...

    New submitter mikeatTB writes: "For software development, no significant developer activity is predictable or repetitive; if it were, the developers would have automated it already," writes Steven A. Lowe, Principal Consultant Developer at ThoughtWorks, via TechBeacon. "In addition, learning is essentially a nonlinear process; it involves trying things that don't work in order to discover what does work. You might see linear progress for a while, but you don't know what you don't know, so there will be apparent setbacks. It is from these setbacks that one learns the truth about the system -- what is really needed to make it work, to make it usable, and to make a difference for the users and the business. In other words, the dirty little secret of software development is that projects don't really exist. And they're killing our products, teams, and software." Lowe continues: "Projects, with respect to software development, are imaginary boxes drawn around scope and time in an attempt to...

    Last week, a lawyer for Uber said Waymo was seeking about $2.6 billion from the company for the alleged theft of one of several trade secrets in a lawsuit over self-driving cars. Over the weekend, Waymo filed a document with the court noting that the correct figure was actually $1.859 billion. TechCrunch reports: It's not clear why this seemingly important detail was left uncorrected for nearly a week. The filing also includes some additional clarification around the way in which the damages figure was calculated. Though Waymo is arguing that nine trade secrets were put in jeopardy by Anthony Levandowski, it is seeking a maximum of $1.8 billion in damages. That figure is the value that Waymo is attributing to a single trade secret -- trade secret 25. The other eight secrets are being individually valued at less than $1.8 billion. Consequently, Waymo is capping the damages at the value of its most valuable compromised trade secret. Waymo's attorneys note that the $1.8 billion figure was...

    An anonymous reader quotes a report from The Verge: China has blocked WhatsApp, security experts confirmed today to The New York Times (Warning: source may be paywalled). Over the past few months, WhatsApp has experienced brief disruptions to service, with users unable to send video chats or photos. Now, even text messages are completely blocked, according to Nadim Kobeissi, an applied cryptographer at Symbolic Software, a Paris-based research firm that also monitors digital censorship in China. Kobeissi found that China may have recently upgraded its firewall to detect and block the NoiseSocket protocol that WhatsApp uses to send texts, in addition to already blocking the HTTPS/TLS that WhatsApp uses to send photos and videos. He said, "I think it took time for the Chinese firewall to adapt to this new protocol so that it could also target text messages." His company noticed the app disruptions beginning last Wednesday. ...

    Accounting firm Deloitte confirmed on Monday it had suffered a cyberattack. From a report: One of the world's "big four" accountancy firms has been targeted by a sophisticated hack that compromised the confidential emails and plans of some of its blue-chip clients, the Guardian can reveal (the company has since confirmed the breach). Deloitte, which is registered in London and has its global headquarters in New York, was the victim of a cybersecurity attack that went unnoticed for months. One of the largest private firms in the US, which reported a record $37bn revenue last year, Deloitte provides auditing, tax consultancy and high-end cybersecurity advice to some of the world's biggest banks, multinational companies, media enterprises, pharmaceutical firms and government agencies. The Guardian understands Deloitte clients across all of these sectors had material in the company email system that was breached. The companies include household names as well as US government departments...

    Tycho: I tend to think of games in terms of lineage.  It’s a two tier system where the games themselves have something like progeny, but the designers also exist in a kind of parallel continuum.  There’s people where I’m simply going to buy any game they make, and there’s franchises I’ll endure no end of abuse from.  So, let’s take a look at where Dropmix exists. Frequency was the first time I’d ever heard of Harmonix, but it wasn’t my first experience with Rhythm Games.  It’s possible to think of the Tempest/Gyruss planes…...

    New Comic: Men Of Distinction

    Tycho: Outside of Twitter or email, I don’t let strangers talk to me on the Internet.  I just don’t do it.  Generally speaking their “insights” about my identity fall into a few very staid categories and I feel confident I’ve experienced the flavor ridges of that particular narrative arc.  I’m not resting on my anodized laurels though: I’m getting into the conversation in a big way, and there’s been some interest in the novel mode of my dialectic. Hey!  The Child’s Play Team has put together a an event this afternoon on our…...

    Tycho: I’m still thinking about my SCA shit up at last weekend’s Banner War, partly because I got sick there so I’ve had a lot of time to lie completely motionless except for wracking coughs and the occasional turn, as meat is turned on a grill, to let the mucus collect in the other lobe of my sinuses. Here is the comic which recounts a vital portion of the experience.  I always wonder how I’d fare in another context; statistically speaking, “dead at another’s hand in the service of someone I don’t know” is probably the correct assessment. …...

    Tycho: Gabriel mostly sat in confusion after the comment at Curriculum Night; he doesn’t really start or maintain beef in realspace. What you think isn’t political - that is to say, what isn’t up for debate - is really just an index of your politics anyway, and quite a robust one.  For me, I don’t think teaching science in science class is a political act.  I grew up in a house where “teaching evilution”...  Well, the fact that we called it Evilution is probably enough information to glean the subtleties of the position.  I live and let live as…...

    For the last couple of years, 2K games actually put out a PC port for the previous year's WWE title. While waiting around six months to get wrestling on one's platform of choice wasn't so bad, it never quite made sense why 2K couldn't release the game with the console versions. For the hotly anticipated WWE 2K18, PC gamers won't have to wait. Announced just today, 2K18 will be landing on Steam for PC on October 17, the same day as the Switch, PS4 and Xbox One versions. It wouldn't be a 2K games release without pre-order DLC, so that is also being brought over. The four day early access that console gamers get isn't being offered, but you'll be able to unlock two different personas of Kurt Angle (WWE "American Hero" and ECW "Wrestling Machine") and if you opt for the deluxe edition (which includes the Season Pass), then you'll get extra John Cena's (ECW One Night Stand and Wrestlemania 26) alongside RVD and Batista.

    On September 25, 2007, the final installment of the Halo trilogy was unleashed upon gamers the world over. It was a gargantuan financial success; Halo 3 became the biggest entertainment launch in history, with over $170 million in sales within the first 24 hours, and $300 million in one measly week. It went on to sell 8.1 million copies by the end of the year, making it the bestselling game of 2007, and has sold a cumulative 12.15 million copies today. Look, none of that really matters to me. I was a pint-sized kiddo when Halo 3 came out. I was in sixth grade, unwillingly biding my time until after school, when I could pester my Dad to drive me 20 minutes to the closest GameStop. It was an unbelievable feeling to have this game in my hands, finally, after months of waiting. Months spent reading previews in Game Informer, and OXM. I read and I salivated over still photos of Master Chief, The Arbiter, the new weapons, and vehicles. I wan...

    [I think for a lot of gamers my age, Final Fantasy VII was the game that really introduced us to RPGs. Cedi, on the other hand, cut his teeth on our dear friend Mario's papertastic adventures and learned to love the genre as a result. Why is this blog being posted on Destructoid's Front Page? Because it's awesome. Also, because Cedi joined us for this month's Bloggers Wanted prompt! Tell us in the comments which game finally helped you to understand a new genre in gaming! - Wes] RPGs are a fascinating genre of games. Their biggest draws to fans involve a lot of reading, doing math, and sometimes bawling uncontrollably. They're things that many kids don’t like doing, but somehow, they've captivated large audiences of all ages. If you described RPGs like that to me decades ago, I would maybe have treated them like Brussels sprouts. And yet, as ...

    For nearly a year now, SAG-affiliated video game voice actors have been on strike. Last September, 97% of members voted for a work stoppage if a new contract wasn't established. It wasn't, and the strike began in late October. Since then, members haven't done any voice work for 11 major companies (Activision, Electronic Arts, Take-Two/2K Games, WB Games, Insomniac Games, Disney Character Voices, Blindlight, Corps of Discovery Films, Formosa Interactive, Interactive Associates, Inc, and VoiceWorks Productions, Inc). Over the weekend, the two sides reached a tentative agreement that should put an end to the strike. The new contract will be reviewed at the next SAG-AFTRA National Board meeting in October. If it passes, the voice actors will go back to work. SAG-AFTRA came ...

    A handful of teams (Browns, Titans, Bengals, Ravens) have a formation that the AI in Madden 18 can't stop. It's called Gun Monster, and it sends the two exterior offensive linemen out wide. And while you'd think a running play with only three offensive linemen would be doomed, Madden's AI reacts by sending defensive players to cover the tackles-turned-wide-receiver, guaranteeing you chunks of yards on the run. EA told Kotaku its "aware of an issue with the Gun Monster formation which is causing problems with in-game AI" and that it "will be fixed in a forthcoming Title Update," so rack up those free yards while you can. Meanwhile, if a human player tries to use it on you, you can always audible into a field goal block to stack the line, or just call man co...

    If you were waiting for Fortnite's Battle Royale mode to let you group up with friends before jumping in, hey, me too. And good news: that'll be an option in time for tomorrow's free launch. Along with the standard solo game type, you'll be able to play in duos and four-person squads. As a PUBG player, I'm rarely compelled to fight 1 vs. 100 -- it's either with my buds, or not at all. So, this is crucial. If you're hoping to pair up, one extra note: while full squads will be available from the get go, duos won't be active until "there are enough players to support matchmaking in both modes." The studio is also adding Supply Drops, item-carrying crates that drift from above and can be shot down to speed up...

    While I definitely loved the first Original Sin, it did leave a lot to be desired. Needless to say, I was excited when the sequel got announced and even more excited when I found out the game took place 1,000 years or so later so I didn't have to try and remember all the details of the first game. So far, the sequel is good enough to completely erase any memory I had from the first one, because this is the game I wanted the whole time. Read more......

    In 2014, Microsoft bought Mojang and Minecraft for a cool $2.5 billion. It was a monumental acquisition, one spurred on by Minecraft creator Markus Persson ultimately growing tired of navigating a company that had grown to that size. It was extra notable because Persson had previously made a point of hoping to stay independent forever. However, details have come to light that indicate maybe Minecraft was on the negotiating table sometime before the September 2014 sale. In his new book Hit Refresh, Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella says that Microsoft passed on seriously pursuing Mojang before he was appointed CEO (which happened on February 4, 2014). And it was current Xbox leader Phil Spencer who wanted to make the deal. "Early in Microsoft's relationship with Mojang, before I was CEO, [Spencer] presented an opportunity to purchase Minecraft, but [Spencer's] boss at the time chose not to move forward," Nadell...

    If you’re patiently waiting for games like Yooka-Laylee on the Switch, you may have to wait just a little bit longer. This morning, Yooka-Laylee developers Playtonic released a backer update on their Kickstarter page, detailing their progress towards a Switch port, and the hurdles Unity has presented them with. Playtonic explained that the game was bogged down by a technical issue that required a new version of Unity to fix (Unity 5.6). However, once the updated engine released, a host of new issues were found within the game, needing eradication. Of course, this will require further development time, and puts distance between the game and its release date. This was not an isolated incident, either. A similar ...

Its at these shows that the biggest gaming news that will affect the gaming community as whole for years to come and TGS 2017 has been no difference.

    As a software guy, I was always curious to know how things work at the hardware level and how to apply that knowledge for more advanced optimizations in applications. Take the Java Memory Model, for instance. The model grounds its memory consistency and visibility properties on keywords such as volatile or synchronize. But these are just the language keywords, and you start looking around at how JVM engineers could turn the model in life. At some point, you will breathe out, revealing that the model utilizes a low-level instruction set for mutexes and memory barriers at the very bottom of the software pie running on physical machines. Nice- these are the instructions a CPU understands, but the curiosity drives you further because it is still vague how all the memory consistency guarantees can be satisfied on multi-CPU machines with several CPU registers and caches. Well, the hardware guys ...

    Possibly some of the less-defined roles in the software delivery set of characters are the 'Product' people. When introducing Agile, that void of clarity plays a big part. I've seen organizations very successful with these characters and some less so. In all cases, it seems, it involved growing pains, staff changes, etc. It's very disruptive to product folks. Not that the lives of developers or testers are any simpler, or the transformation less impactful. But it seems to me the transformation for the squad itself has the topic of focus for any brand adopting Agile methodology. Hence, the roles and responsibilities of 'product' people are of interest (to me)....

    The Spark Streaming integration for Kafka 0.10 is similar in design to the 0.8 Direct Stream approach. It provides simple parallelism, 1:1 correspondence between Kafka partitions and Spark partitions, and access to offsets and metadata. However, because the newer integration uses the new Kafka consumer API instead of the simple API, there are notable differences in usage. This version of the integration is marked as experimental, so the API is potentially subject to change. In this blog, I am going to implement a basic example on Spark Structured Streaming and Kafka integration....

Traditional perimeter defenses are unable to stop most software attacks; meanwhile, hackers are focusing more on the software layer. To make matters worse, many IoT devices have no security built-in and are thus easily compromised....

When the call stack is deep, the number of error codes becomes large. Simply return the result of func1 or func2. There is no way to know which function fails since their error codes may overlap.

    Researchers at the Delft University of Technology wanted to use FPGAs at cryogenic temperatures down around 4 degrees Kelvin. They knew from previous research that many FPGAs that use submicron fabrication technology actually work pretty well at those temperatures. It is the other components that misbehave — in particular, capacitors and voltage regulators. They worked out an interesting strategy to get around this problem. The common solution is to move the power supply away from the FPGA and out of the cold environment. The problem is, that means long wires and fluctuating current demands will cause a variable voltage drop at …read more...
