But another key feature in iOS is the long-expected addition of Messages in iCloud, which syncs across all devices and deletes iMessages across everything, so you won't get quite as spammed. It also backs up iMessages so that any new device in the account can get old iMessages without restoring a backup.

11 Why thousands of AI researchers are boycotting the new Nature journal

Machine learning is a young and technologically astute field. It does not have the historical traditions of other fields and its academics have seen no need for the closed-access publishing model. The community itself created, collated, and reviewed the research it carried out. We used the internet to create new journals that were freely available and made no charge to authors. The era of subscriptions and leatherbound volumes seemed to be behind us.

We asked scientists to review Westworld. We were not disappointed

"Westworld Season 1 is fantastic... this is captivating TV. It's not flawless but more than makes up for that with its portrayal of the core themes and concepts. What I especially like about it as a technologist is that it does not overly focus on the technology itself, but rather on it as a vehicle or mechanism to introduce and provoke some of the themes explored in the show -- can't wait to watch season 2, fingers crossed it's as good as season 1."

Enterprise IoT projects: Data, ML, security, and other key factors | ZDNet

The Internet of Things has been hyped, discussed and piloted for years, but is now beginning to deliver real business benefits. However, with surveys revealing only moderate success rates for IoT projects, there's clearly work to do in deploying suitable edge computing architectures, setting up trusted (blockchain-mediated) data flows, and applying the most appropriate AI/ML algorithms to extract actionable insights. The IoT is a complex area and, it seems, businesses would do well to look beyond their in-house resources in order to maximise the chances of a successful result.

Guess who comes back in Solo?

I don't really care what happens next with Han or Lando, but I can't wait to see where they take Qi'ra's character. She proved herself quite the combatant and a potential female Sith (if indeed that's what's she's in training to be) isn't something we've seen on the big screen before. Also, it's just so exciting to have Darth Maul back on the big screen. His fight with Obi-Wan and Qui-Gon Jinn in The Phantom Menace is still one of my favorite lightsaber battles ever. Hopefully we don't have to wait too long to find out what happens next.

Apple Releases watchOS 4.3.1

Today, Apple is officially releasing watchOS 4.3.1 to the public. This follows weeks of beta seeds, as is par for the course. As far as what’s new in this software, there isn’t much. watchOS 4.3.1 is meant to be a minor upgrade, focusing on behind-the-scenes improvements and other enhancements. There weren’t any major forward facing features added to the mix during any of the beta seeds, and it is not likely that Apple will suddenly throw in any additional features with the public release.

Intel faces age discrimination allegations following layoffs

Intel's push for greater diversity hasn't helped it avoid trouble. The Wall Street Journal has learned that the US Equal Employment Opportunity Commission is investigating claims that Intel's large-scale layoffs discriminated against older employees. In a May 2016 round that cut 2,300 workers, for instance, the median age of those let go was 49 -- seven years older than those who remained. The EEOC hasn't decided whether or not it will file a class-action lawsuit against Intel, but the affected people will be free to pursue civil lawsuits if the regulator doesn't find enough evidence to pursue its own case.

Partner Interconnect gives businesses a secure way to connect to the Google Cloud Platform (businesses can also connect to GCP via Cloud VPN or Dedicated Interconnect ).

Snap’s SVP of engineering responds to claims that the company has a “toxic” and “sexist” culture

The story focused on a farewell email written by a female software engineer at the company last November. The engineer listed traits of an engineer, including being a person of color and a woman, and said, “It’s fine if this list doesn’t describe you . . . But it’s not fine if you think, consciously or subconsciously, that these traits prevent you from being a good engineer. It is my deepest hope that this company can be a place that is kind, smart, and creative. I’m just done fighting for it when very few other people seem to care.” Only 13% of Snap’s technology roles are held by women, and women make up less than 25% of the company’s senior managers.
