Shaun Nichols writing for The Register: Adobe says a buggy installer is the reason some people have two different versions of Flash Player on their Windows PCs. The software house told The Register it had to create an additional build of the browser plugin specifically for Microsoft's Internet Explorer after the version made for other browsers – such as Mozilla's Firefox and Microsoft's Edge – wouldn't install properly for IE. So, for example, if you have Internet Explorer and Firefox on your machine, you'll have two slightly different copies of Flash that should be functionally the same. Quality control? Testing? What's that then? I wouldn't blame you if you feel that this is the straw that broke the camel's back. Here is how to completely uninstall Adobe Flash from your computer.
The MacKeeper utility suite, which claims to help Mac users stop security threats, find duplicate files, and help you uninstall unwanted apps, doesn't have the best reputation. And now they're making legal threats against a teenage video maker.
No matter where the future goes, Microsoft will have a place in it. The company’s "conversation as a platform" offering, which it unveiled in March, represents a bet that chat-based interfaces will overtake apps as our primary way of using the internet: for finding information, for shopping, and for accessing a range of services. And apps will become smarter thanks to "cognitive APIs," made available by Microsoft, that let them understand faces, emotions, and other information contained in photos and videos.
Microsoft argues that it has the best "brain," built on nearly two decades of advancements in machine learning and natural language processing, for delivering a future powered by artificial intelligence. It has a head start in building bots that resonate with users emotionally, thanks to an early experiment in China.
And among the giants, Microsoft was first to release a true platform for text-based chat interfaces — a point of pride at a company that was mostly sidelined during the rise of smartphones.
After losing the mobile battle, can Microsoft win the AI battle? In January 2016, The Verge described the tech industry's search for the killer bot. In the months that followed, companies big and small have accelerated their development efforts. Facebook opened up a bot development platform of its own, running on its popular Messenger chat app. Google announced a new intelligent assistant running inside Allo, a forthcoming messenger app, and Home, its Amazon Echo competitor. Meanwhile the Echo, whose voice-based inputs have captivated developers, is reportedly in 3 million homes, and has added 1,200 "skills" through its API.
Microsoft is proud of its work on AI, and eager to convey the sense that this time around, it's poised to win.
Jaguar Land Rover is throwing the kitchen sink at autonomous driving technology. On top of the tools it's developing for off-road autonomy, the Brits are planning to create a fleet of research vehicles testing a raft of self-driving technologies.
A new method has been proposed that could allow scientists to develop a "3D brain-on-a-chip." Something which could offer researchers a new platform to develop a far better understanding of how brain cells react to medication in a real setting.
While 3D cell culturing isn't new, it's not currently used in neuroscience, which still takes place in two-dimensions, in a petri dish. Bart Schurink -- a researcher at the University of Twente in the Netherlands -- has recently pioneered a way in which three-dimensional cells could be grown on a chip.
By measuring electrical signals and placing a microreactor on top, Schurink found that cells could also be grown vertically as well as horizontally. The process also involves a special "sieve" that contains 900 inverted pyramid openings the enables the 3D "network" of neurons. The 3D cell environment offers more accurate data for studying the effects that medicine has on them. Naturally, the researchers needed a little help from the university's NanoLab to make a "microsieve electrode array," as every hole needs to be exactly the same size.
Tests have so far been conducted using living brain cells from lab rats but the hope is that the data the process yields will provide a new way of analyzing the effects of diseases and their treatments, and ultimately be applied to humans.
