The Internet is still not saved from “destruction”

After the European Parliament (EP) vote yesterday, the Internet was “saved” by the adoption of the disputed texts in the new Internet copyright directive. But that does not mean that the battle is over. In fact, it is yet to begin Last month, the proposal was accepted by one of the EP committees. There are two controversial texts in Articles 11 and 13. They have created the serious discontent of the IT industry and a great deal of MEPs. Article 11 provides for an obligation for internet search engines and social networks to share part of their revenue with the Full Story

NRAM memory from nanotubes comes with a number of advantages

Japanese company Fujitsu will begin production of non-volatile NRAM memories based on carbon nanotubes next year, the specialized source reported. With research in the field of NRAM, or Nano-RAM, the American company Nantero has long been involved. But two years ago, licenses for commercial activity with NRAMs were acquired by Japanese manufacturers Fujitsu Semiconductor and Mie Fujitsu Semiconductor. The principle of NRAM memories is based on the positioning of carbon nanotubes. The key layer in the cell is an array of hundreds of nanotubes intertwined randomly. One value of the control voltage deforms the nanotubes, resulting in a conducting Full Story

Finnish operator Elisa launches the first 5G network

Elisa is emerging as the first operator in the world to launch a fifth-generation commercial network. The Finnish company started selling 5G subscriptions and announced the launch of 5G commercial networks in Tampere and Tallinn. The first person to become a user of the 5G network is Anne Berner, the Minister of Transport and Communications, who held a video interview with Estonia’s Economy and Infrastructure Minister Kadry Simson. Video calling is yet another historical achievement of Elisa – the world’s first GSM phone call was also made through its network. Our goal is Finland to become the leading developer of Full Story

Companies cheat with services of fake artificial intelligence

Instead of algorithms, real people do the services they represent as a work of artificial intelligence Artificial Intelligence is a hot topic in the world of technology, and it’s going to be such a long time. At the moment, any company in the field would like to be among the first to offer an effective segment of artificial intelligence. Some companies want it so much they’re ready for fraud, says Guardian. One of the popularity scams is the presentation of artificial intelligence services, which are actually done by very real people. The topic came to attention after The Wall Street Full Story

Cloud giants develop their own chips

Leading cloud companies are resorting to proprietary chip development that will allow them to build their own servers, thus reducing their dependence on Intel, Taiwanese Digitimes said on Monday, citing industry sources. Google, Microsoft, Facebook, Amazon and Alibaba need special chips to work with artificial intelligence applications. Intel has long dominated the processor market, and this is not the case for big internet players who continue to expand the capabilities of their applications and services. At the Google I / O 2018 Developer Conference earlier this year, the internet company introduced third-generation Tensor Processing Unit (TPU) tensor processors designed for Full Story

A new generation of satellites will monitor the climate

The two twin satellites of NASA’s new climate monitoring mission are almost ready for work. The space agency reported that their lasers have already been activated and are working as expected. The Gravity Recovery and Climate Experiment Follow-On mission (GRACE-FO) consists of a continuation of a previous similar project.It is now built with two new generation satellites that will use lasers to be significantly more precise in the observations and data they collect. The satellites were brought into orbit on 22 May this year with a SpaceX missile. They will monitor the changes in the level of water on the Full Story
