first_imgMOST READ Anne Curtis talks about renewing faith in God amid the world’s ‘noise and clutter’ “We’ll focus more on execution because last season we won the championship without peaking, defensively we we’re okay,” said Ayo. “We want to be unpredictable, do new things, be unconventional, and do a lot of crazy things.”Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next READ: La Salle embraced title pressure, says Ayo“It’s actually less of a pressure now because it will shift to the teams who performed well this season.”Ayo said teams like Adamson, runner-up Ateneo, Far Eastern University, and National University will be the ones to carry the burden for 80.Ayo knows other teams have scouted their “Mayhem” defense, which led the Green Archers to best offensive (97.8 points per game) and defensive ratings (81.0 points), so the 39-year-old head coach will now concentrate on improving his offense even more.READ: Returning Ayo proud of ‘responsible’ Archers ADVERTISEMENT Motorcycle taxis ‘illegal’ starting next week — LTFRB board member Filipinos turn Taal Volcano ash, plastic trash into bricks PLAY LIST 01:40Filipinos turn Taal Volcano ash, plastic trash into bricks01:32Taal Volcano watch: Island fissures steaming, lake water receding02:14Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard02:56NCRPO pledges to donate P3.5 million to victims of Taal eruption00:56Heavy rain brings some relief in Australia02:37Calm moments allow Taal folks some respite LATEST STORIES DILG to lock shops in Tagaytay City, other areas near Taal Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.

Some are funny such as the shots of eBays websit

first_imgSome are funny, such as the shots of eBay’s website CSS code used to illustrate “very dangerous hacker activities” on a television show. Similarly, in the 2005 movie “Stealth,” robotic fighter planes (that would perhaps be called drones today) rapidly become sentient. An image of the planes’ artificial intelligence source code turns out to be raw TeX/LaTeX markup for nonsensical mathematics equations.Also spotted masquerading as complex code are an Apple version control system, an XML parser, code for a WordPress admin screen, and languages including Delphi (Pascal), Visual Basic, Python, JavaScript, C++ and PHP.All this software speaks to a change in perception, Graham-Cumming believed. “I think programming has become a bit cooler than it used to be. Using computers or writing code is used as a core part of the plot. You see people configuring things or writing custom code, and programming is seen as an interesting activity.”#!Smoke and mirrorsNot all code seen on TV can be forensically traced to some innocuous command-line screen or markup text, however. Increasingly, software depicted in movies is custom-built by a Chicago-based design team.One of only two main U.S. producers of fake movie and TV GUIs, Twisted Media is a creative collective founded by visual effects designer Derek Frederickson, who parlayed a background in interactive CD-ROMs in the 1990s and guided multimedia presentations into an accidental—and highly successful—career in creating multimedia for TV shows. “Star Trek.” “2001.” “Minority Report.” This is just a short list of movies and TV shows that have created indelible cultural images of computer technology. Today, that list is growing at what seems like an exponential curve, as our obsession with computers, tablets, smartphones and software surges. Diving into what all this code means about our relationship to software is an anthropologist’s dream.On Jan. 2, 2014, London-based computer scientist and scientific history buff John Graham-Cumming tweeted a shot of code from the 2013 movie “Elysium” next to its mundane origins. The plot centers on a dystopia in the year 2154, so it’s ironic that the code used to reboot the space station is in fact assembly language from the Intel Architecture Software Developer’s Manual, Volume 3. Come to think of it, will systems still require a reboot in 2154? Will “Intel inside” still be a meaningful advertising slogan? Will anyone still program in assembly?Codespotting takes offAfter his tweet went viral, Graham-Cumming, author of “The Geek Atlas” and the man behind a successful petition requesting the British government’s apology for its treatment of Alan Turing, started Source Code in TV and Films. The blog contains images of code he and others submitted, along with succinct explanations of their origins.(Related: More about Graham-Cumming’s blog)last_img read more

Right now I think everybody would agree that MIT

first_img“Right now I think everybody would agree that MIT, Stanford and Carnegie Mellon are the top places [for computer science],” Ballmer told the Crimson. “I want Harvard on that list.”The full story is available here.Google Bus in BangladeshGoogle wants to bring the power of the Internet to a half a million undergraduate students by visiting 500 campuses in 35 different locations across Bangladesh. The company recently announced Google Bus Bangladesh, an educational initiative to help students maximize the possibilities of the Internet and introduce them to digital tools that will allow them to start and grow businesses and projects online.“The specially retrofitted bus with 3G Internet will hopefully help give half a million undergraduates a better sense of the power and utility of the Internet, and show them how to plan and collaborate in new ways,” wrote James McClure, country manager for emerging markets at Google Asia Pacific on the company’s blog. “Following Dhaka, the bus will make its way to schools in and around major cities, including Chittagong, Khulna, Sylhet, Rajshahi, Rangpur and Barisal.” Oculus has announced the availability of the Oculus Mobile SDK v0.4.0.“The initial version of the Oculus Mobile SDK is specifically designed for the Samsung Gear VR Innovator Edition on Note 4, and includes everything you need to get started developing for mobile,” wrote the Oculus VR team on the company’s blog. “We’ve been working on the Mobile SDK for over a year in collaboration with Samsung, optimizing the Note 4 tech stack to deliver the first ultra-low latency, mobile virtual reality headset.”In addition, the company also announced that Samsung’s Gear VR innovator Edition for Note 4 is available for pre-registration. According to Oculus, the Innovator Edition is designed to give developers the necessary resources to build and experiment with the platform.Ballmer makes donation to alma materFormer Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer is expected to make a big donation to his alma mater, Harvard. The Harvard Crimson reported the donation could be around US$60 million and could increase the university’s computer science faculty by 50%, which amounts to 12 professors.last_img read more
