A game designer creates software that could auto-generate complex cities, from street maps to skyscraper architecture. The post A Sprawling Videogame City Filled With Buildings Made by Generative Algorithms appeared first on WIRED.
Aim: - to generate interest in the use of of VOIP on the Raspberry PI and, if sufficient interest is generated, to organize a more detailed workshop in the future. Topics Covered:- 1. Outline of VOIP as a voice technology 2. Advantages of VOIP telephony for business and the consumer. 3. FreePBX on the Raspberry PI build, configuration and usage. 4. Discussion of VOIP trunk technology, VOIP services. 5. Demo of a PI FreePBX system with two VOIP phones.

I love the combination of games and making movies that Machinima is all about.
Hi guys, I’m very happy to have a guest blogger Andrew Mills, posting about a super way to teach computer programming for kids, Andrew’s going to talk about why it’s important for children to be able to code and is going to introduce a very clever and fun way to teach children about coding. You […]
Times of Oman Feel a virtual reality world CANOE "Touching is an important part of human communication but virtual reality has until now been lacking it," its chief executive Natsuo Koda told a press conference.
FLIR has just shown a dramatic spectrum of Formula 1 racing you may not have even realized you were missing: full infrared. The company filmed Red Bull's RB8 F1 car doing donuts at the Gamma Racing Day in Assen using its FLIR X6580sc and other...
Aim - What can you do with that Raspberry Pi this half term, you brought it but never got around to using?
This is one of the two Raspberry Pi focused parallel session being run on 30th October2014 by BCS Northampton. In this session some basic example activities will be shown and facilitated. It is an informal drop-in session, so come have a try at some simple programming and control with the Raspberry Pi. All based around a fun, free programming language Scratch (scratch.mit.edu).
In 1945, future Nobel laureate George Stigler wrote an essay in the Journal of Farm Economics titled The Cost of Subsistence about a seemingly simple problem: how could a soldier be fed for as little money as possible?
The “Stigler Diet” became a classic problem in the then-new field of linear optimization, which is used today in many areas of science and engineering. Any time you have a set of linear constraints such as “at least 50 square meters of solar panels” or “the amount of paint should equal the amount of primer” along with a linear goal (e.g., “minimize cost” or “maximize customers served”), that’s a linear optimization problem.
At Google, our engineers work on plenty of optimization problems. One example is our YouTube video stabilization system, which uses linear optimization to eliminate the shakiness of handheld cameras. A more lighthearted example is in the Google Docs Sudoku add-on, which instantaneously generates and solves Sudoku puzzles inside a Google Sheet, using the SCIP mixed integer programming solver to compute the solution
Ferdinand von Prondzynski, vice-chancellor of Robert Gordon University in Aberdeen, thinks so. He took to his website, A University Blog, to make that very point.
“A year or two ago a number of people who wanted to grab a bit of public attention in higher education claimed loudly that MOOCs (‘massive open online courses’) were the future, and that all universities would have to go down this route,” he writes – linking to a Times Higher Education article from last year in which Don Nutbeam, vice-chancellor of the University of Southampton, urged institutions to produce Moocs or face dire consequences. “It’s Mooc or die. More to the point, do it quickly,” Professor Nutbeam said at the time.
Despite the lack of a declared business plan for both universities and Mooc platforms, Professor von Prondzynski continues, “the hype continued to roll and seemed to have the capacity to persuade rational commentators that MOOCs were the future

The project aims to evaluate and analyse of Medium Access Control (MAC) protocol for Vehicular Ad hoc Networks (VANETs) to achieve high reliability and low delay delivery of safety related messages as well as provide QoS requirements for non-safety messages
