Google Cloud, Deutsche Bank Agree on Multi-Year Strategic Partnership

"The partnership with Google Cloud will be an important driver of our strategic transformation," said Deutsche Bank Chief Executive Christian Sewing.

A source familiar with the matter told Reuters that Deutsche Bank expects the partnership to generate more than EUR 1 billion (roughly Rs.

Google and Deutsche have now signed a letter of intent and plan to sign a multi-year contract within the next few months, the bank said.

Earlier this year, Deutsche invited bids from Google, Microsoft, and Amazon to overhaul the bank's outdated and fragmented technology networks.

Deutsche Bank said on Tuesday it has agreed a strategic, multi-year partnership with Google to give the German lender access to cloud services and drive innovation in technology-based financial products for clients.

Andrew Ng says Deep learning is the "New Electricity"; what this means to your organization

There’s a lot of benefits to starting to use the infrastructure you already have to start creating value now: Deep learning is particularly effective at handling noise in data, and in handling unstructured data - so if your data infrastructure is not in a good state, it’s even more important that you invest in deep learning.

Deep learning models provide deeper insight and greater accuracy, make existing products better, improve operations (e.g. Google used deep learning to reduce data center cooling requirements by 40%!)

This month’s Fortune magazine has Deep Learning as their cover story, and in it they quote Ng as saying: “In the past a lot of S&P 500 CEOs wished they had started thinking sooner than they did about their Internet strategy.

This view is shared by the always insightful Andrew Ng (Chief Scientist at Baidu, former CEO of Coursera, and head of Google Brain–and perhaps the only person I’m aware of who understands both business strategy and deep learning).

Looking externally for deep learning experts, rather than developing deep learning expertise within your existing staff, means that you will be creating a gap between your domain experts and your new data experts.

The United Kingdom will remove Huawei equipment from its 5G networks by the end of 2020

The U.K.’s original plans to rely (at least in part) on Huawei-made equipment to flesh out its 5G network did not sit well with the U.S. Considering America’s ongoing trade war with China and continued efforts to stymie business dealings with Huawei, the U.K. may have felt pressured to rethink its roadmap for a 5G rollout.

In a surprising shift, reports from the United Kingdom state that the country will strip Huawei equipment from its 5G networks by the end of the year.

The shift in policy is based on a new report from British cybersecurity experts that fear Huawei may be forced to use untrusted technology as a result of recent sanctions put on the company by the United States.

Despite its 20-year reliance on Huawei-made telecom hardware, the United Kingdom has now decided to remove Huawei from its 5G infrastructure by the end of 2020.

Details on the plan are scant as of press time, but the U.K. now seems dead set on removing Huawei from its 5G telecom infrastructure over the next 6 months.

Volkswagen Using Computer Vision To Increase Production Efficiency

“The first two Computer Vision solutions from Porsche and Audi are currently being prepared for Group-wide rollout and connection to the Volkswagen Industrial Cloud,” the company notes.

Volkswagen expects its “Industrial Computer Vision” image recognition and processing technology to lead to a 30% productivity improvement in its production processes from 2016 to 2025.

Volkswagen, as the title notes, is using “Computer Vision” to increase manufacturing efficiency at its factories.

We’ve also spent some time in the Volkswagen factory that will first produce the ID.3, as well as a few other electric vehicle models, but that was mostly a superficial visit and press photo op.

No doubt, as Volkswagen transitions a factory that just built its last fossil fuel vehicle after 116 years into a fully electric vehicle factory, and then completed the transition for several other factories around the globe, Volkswagen is looking for every opportunity it can to bring manufacturing up to a 2020s level to utilizes the best tech, whether it be basic tech like a smartphone and an app or new manufacturing robots for the factory floor.

Sincronia Logistica has said it has been using drones to deliver facemasks to Mexican hospitals to remove the risk of human-to-human transmission of COVID-19.

The Mexico City-based pharmaceutical and logistics company, Sincronia Logistica has turned to drone technology to deliver antibacterial gel, facemasks, gloves, 3D-printed face shields, and other supplies to healthcare workers on the frontline.

The majority of what the drones are delivering has been donated to Sincronia Logistica to deliver to the healthcare workers.

Diego Garcia, director of business excellence at Sincronia Logistica has shared that the drones have been able to reduce the transport time as well as significantly minimize human contact.

Juana Angelica Garcia, director of the El Marques public hospital in the city of Queretaro, had the following to share on the use of drones: At the time of writing, Mexico has just surpassed 30,000 COVID-19 deaths, making it the fifth-highest coronavirus death toll overtaking France with just over 29,000.

These bionic bird drones flap just like their feathered cousins

The winged drones, based on the flying movements of swallows, are a “bionic concept” built by German industrial automation firm Festo, whose menagerie of machines also includes a kangaroo, bats and jellyfish.

Flapping robot birds complete with plumes of fake feathers have been designed to show how lightweight materials are capable of powering semi-autonomous flight technology.

Artificial features are connected with carbon quills and overlap to provide the drone with in-flight thrust (Festo) The firm suggests BionicSwifts can “fly safely” indoors, but are also robust enough to withstand outdoor gusts.

The robo-birds were designed to replicate natural flight by using individual overlapping feathers made from lightweight, flexible foam.

Feathers are connected by carbon quills and the beating wings fan out on the upstroke so air can flow through, then the downstroke provides the flight thrust.

New Mac ransomware is even more sinister than it appears

In addition to ransomware, ThiefQuest has a whole other set of spyware capabilities that allow it to exfiltrate files from an infected computer, search the system for passwords and cryptocurrency wallet data, and run a robust keylogger to grab passwords, credit card numbers, or other financial information as a user types it in.

Wardle theorizes that the malware may have been intended to quietly run its spyware module first, collect valuable data, and only launch the noisy ransomware as a last-ditch effort to gather some funds from a victim before moving on.

Additionally, the note doesn't list an email address that victims can use to correspond with the attackers about receiving a decryption key—another sign that the malware may not actually be intended as ransomware.

So when Dinesh Devadoss, a malware researcher at the firm K7 Lab, published findings on Tuesday about a new example of Mac ransomware, that fact alone was significant.

In testing, some researchers found it harder than others to induce the malware to start encrypting files as part of its ransomware functionality, which may support Wardle's theory.

Legal Experts Warn, Data Privacy Breaches, Other Crimes In Virtual World

A PwC report last year predicted that nearly 23.5 million jobs worldwide would be using AR and VR by 2030 for training, work meetings or to provide better customer service.

Companies like Spacial, which creates something like a virtual reality version of Zoom, has seen a 1,000% increase in usage since March, according to head of business Jacob Loewenstein.

But with the expansion of VR and AR could come a host of new opportunities for abuse according to legal experts: privacy and data concerns chief among them but tort and even harassment cases possible.

“With VR/AR technology we’re collecting information that to date has not generally been collected, certainly not in any broad scale,” said David Hoppe, author of “Esports in Court, Crimes in VR, and the 51% Attack.”

For example, doctors can use AR body mapping to see medical stats directly on a patient, use VR in training and education or even a surgery run-through with a virtual version of the patient’s body.

From Area 51 to Museum: 'Bird of Prey' Stealth Plane is Now on Display

The lasting legacy of the Bird of Prey was its ability to demonstrate advances in stealth concepts, notably the "gapless" control surfaces that were developed to blend smoothly into the wings to reduce radar visibility, while the engine intake was completely shielded from the front.

Developed by McDonnell Douglas and Boeing in the 1990s it was soon dubbed "The Bird of Prey," named for its resemblance to the Klingon spacecraft from the science fiction series Star Trek, as well as the movie Star Trek III: The Search for Spock.

In the Cold War gallery of the museum, near a Lockheed Martin F-22A Raptor is a truly special aircraft – the one-of-a-kind Boeing YF-118G, a black project aircraft that was developed to demonstrate stealth technology.

The National Museum of the United States Air Force outside of Dayton, Ohio is home to more than 360 aircraft and missiles.

Disney’s Face-Swapping Technology Is the Most Convincing Yet

That’s why Disney is going against the grain and dumping its money into face-swapping technology that looks convincing even at high resolutions.

Disney famously used face-swapping technology to digitally insert Peter Cushing and Carrie Fischer into new Star Wars movies.

It’s only natural for Disney to invest in the technology, as it could open the door to new stories with old or dead actors.

VIDEO In a new paper, Disney Research Studios described how its face-swapping tech works.

Unlike typical deepfake software that relies on low-resolution images and static landmarks, Disney’s tech uses 1024 x 1024 models with advanced lighting and stabilization technology to create convincing large images and videos.

There's a debate raging in video games over whether loot boxes should be classified as gambling

Przybylski also said that blanket regulation of video games with loot box mechanics as gambling would be "apocalyptically stupid," as this would essentially mean slapping an 18+ label on a wide range of games aimed at children, such as "Fortnite" and "FIFA."

Dr Zendle's research has shown there is a correlation between spending money on loot boxes and problem gambling.

Included in the report's findings on problem gambling was the recommendation that so-called "loot boxes" in video games be immediately reclassified by the government to fall under the remit of 2005 Gambling Act.

In the UK, the House of Lords this week recommended the legal reclassification of loot boxes in video games as gambling.

Although the evidence on whether there's a causal link between loot boxes and gambling is equivocal, Dr Zendle told Business Insider that the video game industry brought this on itself.

RIP, Glock? Just How Revolutionary Is the Sig Sauer P320 XFIVE Legion Pistol

This pistol is the first from the myriad of P320 variants to receive Sig Sauer’s “Legion” branding, a brand typically reserved for guns that have some level of enhanced parts put into them.

For the P320 XFIVE Legion, this is the special frame that is said to be “TXG tungsten-infused polymer,” which supposedly makes the regular polymer P320 grip module “as heavy as steel.”

TXG is probably an easy way for Sig Sauer to make a heavy frame version of the P320 without doing much engineering to create a steel frame version.

In some ways, it vindicates Sig Sauer’s original design of the P320 as a modular grip pistol, as the addition of a TXG grip as a choice provides a truly different and functional change to those who want it.

But for most companies, it would make sense to copy Sig Sauer’s metal-infused polymer technology if possible to create “heavy frame” versions of their existing pistols, as existing frame dimensions and specs could continue to be used.

UK set to phase out Huawei from 5G network in major U-turn

A report by GCHQ's National Cyber Security Centre has decided the US sanctions barring Huawei from using technology relying on American intellectual property has had a "severe" impact on the firm.

But a study set to be presented to Mr Johnson this week will declare that US sanctions on Huawei will force the company to use technology that is "untrusted", reports say.

The prime minister decided in January to allow Huawei to play a limited role in the UK's 5G network as he defied security concerns, particularly from the US, about the firm.

The UK is poised to end the use of Huawei technology in its 5G network as soon as this year over security concerns.

Swedish telecoms company Ericsson has said it would be capable of replacing all of the Huawei equipment in the UK's 5G network if the British government decides to ban the Chinese company.
