(AGENPARL) – MASSACHUSETTS AVE CAMBRIDGE (USA) mer 22 giugno 2022 For Erin Walk, who has loved school since she was a little girl, pursuing a graduate degree always seemed like a given. As a mechanical engineering major at Harvard University with a minor in government, she figured that going to graduate school in engineering would be the next logical step. However, during her senior year, a class on the “Technology of War” changed her trajectory, sparking her interest in technology and policy. “[Warfare] seems like a very dark reason for this interest to blossom … but I was so interested in…

(AGENPARL) – HEMPSTEAD (NEW YORK) mar 21 giugno 2022 News 12 Norman Silber, professor of law, spoke to News 12LI about potential price gouging at gas stations in Nassau County and the growing calls for transparency. “I think with the war in Ukraine causing disruptions in supply, with problems we’ve had in the chain of supply, with the problems we’ve had with COVID, there are a lot of reasons to call this a period of disruption in my view,” said Silber. Silber also told News 12 that if there is a period of abnormal disruption and a business is taking advantage,…

(AGENPARL) – MASSACHUSETTS AVE CAMBRIDGE (USA) mar 21 giugno 2022 Bruce Willis’s recent announcement that he was retiring from acting brought widespread public attention to the neurological condition aphasia. While everyone struggles occasionally with finding the right word or tripping over their sentences, aphasia patients can lose the ability to comprehend language entirely. Though Willis hasn’t confirmed it, some doctors suspect that he may have a particularly brutal and degenerative form called primary progressive aphasia (PPA). Scientists have long understood that there are several subtypes of PPA — some versions come with lexical deficits, affecting a person’s ability to access words,…

(AGENPARL) – CUPERTINO mar 21 giugno 2022 Creating a great app, game, or product takes work. Brainstorming ideas, thoughtful iteration, and — as Apple’s Prototyping team knows all too well — feedback. Constant feedback. “If we’re not getting feedback on something, we’re just not showing it to the right people,” says Apple designer Julian Missig. Missig and several other members of the Prototyping team recently hosted a conversation in the Design Digital Lounge for WWDC22 attendees, where they shared their approaches to creating useful prototypes, the value of outside feedback, bringing that special ✨sparkle✨ to early experiences, and design best…

(AGENPARL) – MASSACHUSETTS AVE CAMBRIDGE (USA) mar 21 giugno 2022 Hyper-realistic virtual worlds have been heralded as the best driving schools for autonomous vehicles (AVs), since they’ve proven fruitful test beds for safely trying out dangerous driving scenarios. Tesla, Waymo, and other self-driving companies all rely heavily on data to enable expensive and proprietary photorealistic simulators, since testing and gathering nuanced I-almost-crashed data usually isn’t the most easy or desirable to recreate. To that end, scientists from MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) created “VISTA 2.0,” a data-driven simulation engine where vehicles can learn to drive in the real…
