(PhysOrg.com) -- One of the biggest challenges today's scientists face is sorting and making sense of the massive amounts of data produced by advanced scientific instruments and supercomputers. In response to these challenges, the IU Data to Insight Center (D2I) has released XMC Cat, a new software tool designed to make this critical task more manageable and reduce the time between data collection and possible scientific breakthrough.
Pentaho will be the first BI company to support the Hadoop framework for large volume database analysis
Una de las apuestas claras de Samsung para los próximos cinco años es el mercado de smartphones. Por lo menos esto es lo que se deduce de las palabras de Lee Woo-joong, vicepresidente de marketing de Samsung Mobile Display, quien destaca que "sólo este año el crecimiento global de ventas se va a situar en el 50 por ciento, provocando un incremento más que considerable de las ventas de pantallas OLED de gama alta en los próximos cinco años".
(PhysOrg.com) -- Scientists in Europe have created a time capsule they call a 'digital genome,' and deposited it in a bunker known as the Swiss Fort Knox, which lies deep beneath the ski slopes of the Swiss Alps. The aim of the project is to ensure future scientists will be able to decipher data stored using obsolete technologies.
There's a potential threat lurking in your internet café, say University of Calgary computer science researchers. It's called Typhoid adware and works in similar fashion to Typhoid Mary, the first identified healthy carrier of typhoid fever who spread the disease to dozens of people in the New York area in the early 1900s.

Ever since Steven Spielbergs 2002 sci-fi movie Minority Report, in which a black-clad Tom Cruise stands in front of a transparent screen manipulating a host of video images simply by waving his hands, the idea of gesture-based computer interfaces has captured the imagination of technophiles. Academic and industry labs have developed a host of prototype gesture interfaces, ranging from room-sized systems with multiple cameras to detectors built into laptops screens. But MIT researchers have developed a system that could make gestural interfaces much more practical. Aside from a standard webcam, like those found in many new computers, the system ...
