The End Of Apps As We Know Them - Inside Intercom

The End Of Apps As We Know Them - Inside Intercom | Misc technology watch | Scoop.it
How we experience content via connected devices – laptops, phones, tablets, wearables – is undergoing a dramatic change. The idea of an app as an independent destination is becoming less important, and the idea of an app as a publishing tool, with related notifications that contain content and actions, is becoming more important. This will change what we design, and change our product strategy.

This Device Could Detect Dozens of Cancers With a Single Blood Test | WIRED

This Device Could Detect Dozens of Cancers With a Single Blood Test | WIRED | Misc technology watch | Scoop.it
hat’s why a new startup, dubbed Miroculus, is building a device that could easily and affordably check for dozens of cancers using a single blood sample. Known as Miriam, this low-cost, open source device made its public debut at the TEDGlobal conference in Rio De Janeiro on Thursday, with TED curator Chris Anderson calling it “one of the most thrilling demos in TED history.”

For the company’s founders—a global team of entrepreneurs, microbiologists, and data scientists—the goal is to make Miriam so simple that even untrained workers in clinics around the world could use it. The project is still in the early stages, but if the early trials of Miriam are to be believed, Miroculus could make regular cancer screenings as simple as getting blood drawn.

luiy's curator insight, August 9, 2014 6:11 AM

It’s hard to shake away the utterly depressing feeling that comes with news coverage these days. IDF and Hamas are at it again, a vicious cycle of violence, but this time it feels much more intense. While war rages on the ground in Gaza and across Israeli skies, there’s an all-out information war unraveling in social networked spaces.

 

Not only is there much more media produced, but it is coming at us at a faster pace, from many more sources. As we construct our online profiles based on what we already know, what we’re interested in, and what we’re recommended, social networks are perfectly designed to reinforce our existing beliefs. Personalized spaces, optimized for engagement, prioritize content that is likely to generate more traffic; the more we click, share, like, the higher engagement tracked on the service. Content that makes us uncomfortable, is filtered out.

Docker Launches Its First Commercial Product And Gets Into Orchestration Tools

Docker Launches Its First Commercial Product  And Gets Into Orchestration Tools | Misc technology watch | Scoop.it
we have the new Docker enterprise product called Docker Hub Enterprise, which Messina describes as a turn-key solution companies can install behind their firewall.  It’s the first commercial offering from Docker and it’s designed to meet the needs of more security-conscious companies like financial services and give them a starting point for using Docker in the enterprise. Partners include industry heavyweights Amazon Web Services, IBM and Microsoft. The product was announced today, but it will be released in February.

Finally, Docker announced a deal with IBM today where IBM will be acting as a reseller of Docker products. Messina said having a company like IBM as partner is great validation for Docker as a young company and they are welcoming the partnership.

That’s a ton of news and it shows that Docker is continuing to build the product and to try and find new ways to distribute it through a growing partner network. Fact is they have to because the competition isn’t sitting still either.

The Self-Driving Google Car May Never Actually Happen

The Self-Driving Google Car May Never Actually Happen | Misc technology watch | Scoop.it
ther problem with maps is that once you make them, you have to keep them up to date, a challenge Google says it hasn't yet started working on. Considering all the traffic signals, stop signs, lane markings, and crosswalks that get added or removed every day throughout the country, keeping a gigantic database of maps current is vastly difficult. Safety is at stake here; Chris Urmson, director of the Google car team, told me that if the car came across a traffic signal not on its map, it could potentially run a red light, simply because it wouldn't know to look for the signal. Urmson added, however, that an unmapped traffic signal would be "very unlikely," because during the "time and construction" needed to build a traffic signal, there would be adequate opportunity to add it to the map.
But not always. Scott Heydt, director of marketing at Horizon Signal Technologies, says his company routinely sets up its portable traffic signals at road construction sites. Frequently, they are simply towed to a site and
