Today, an anonymous Amazon employee posted an article on Medium where he expressed his concern about major tech companies' collaboration with the government. The employee used Amazon's facial recognition tool, 'Rekognition' as an example (it is now being used by the police). A similar thing happened earlier this week, where a Microsoft employee spoke out against a possible $10 billion deal that Microsoft is discussing with the Department of Defense. I personally agree with these statements; the companies responsible for emerging consumer technologies should not get involved with warfare. It is the complete opposite of what they stand for.
for more awesome inventions!
When a dog-like 🐕 robot 🤖 looks pretty similar to the one featured in dystopian series Black Mirror, people are inevitably going to panic 😱. But Boston Dynamics is hoping that the public will grow to love ❤ SpotMini: a 30kg bot that can navigate itself on almost any terrain, climb stairs, and pick up objects.
Billed as one of the quietest 🤫 robots around, SpotMini can work for up to 90 minutes 🕰 before recharging and is set to be available to buy 💳 in mid-2019.
Would you be willing to welcome SpotMini into your home 🏠?

⚡ Top 3 facts of the day about innovation:
* The most valued 💯 patent in history is for Lipitor, a cholesterol drug 💊.
* 40% of companies at the top 🔝 of the Forbes 500 list in 2000 were no longer there a decade later 👋.
* By 2030, nearly two-thirds of all the globe’s 🌎 people could be in the middle class 🙋.
Intersections can be points of confusion and tension, but they can also be prime points of inspiration and innovation. We prefer the latter perspective for new connections ➡️ new ideas. What do you think? ➿

do you ever just read something and then everything else you've been learning just clicks?
I read this article (https://t.co/TWd6YtRK63?amp=1) today on how to implement a neural network from scratch in python, the way the author explained them and essentially machine learning for some reason everything in my brain just clicked and it was like...I get it
Do you ever get this? I find it happens when I've been studying and immersing myself in the world of whatever I'm learning
For example my twitter feed is now 80% machine learning and Python so I'm reading about machine even in my downtime ➖➖➖
How's your week going, what have you been working on?
Researchers from Lancaster University in the UK and Northwest University in China have developed an app for Smartwatches that can efficiently estimate sleep quality and provides users with practical advice to help them get a better night's sleep.
Results showed that "SleepGuard" can estimate sleep quality at a similar accuracy to consumer-grade sleep monitors.
SleepGuard can also count the number of times the wearer rolls over during sleep -- another indicator of sleep quality with excessive rollovers potentially indicating disturbed sleep.
The app is also able to capture key information about the factors behind sleep quality and can help wearers identify the root causes of their poor sleep. "Sleep quality has been shown to depend on a wide range of factors, such as ambient light, noisiness as well as breathing patterns, sleeping postures and bedtime routines," said Dr Zheng Wang, Senior Lecturer at Lancaster University and co-author of the research. "SleepGuard" was tested on 15 participants. It tracks a combination of different non-biomedical factors -- including body movements, sounds related to sleep disorders and ambient lighting. . . .

We’ve become addicted to technology. What we sacrifice when we choose scrolling over being is real connection with others and the world around us. Our latest blog post with WWB Associate @hannah_massarella
explores the pull of the addiction & how we can have a more balanced relationship with technology. Link in bio.
Taster - ‘Technology can have a numbing effect, when we feel stressed or overwhelmed it’s quite easy to get lost in social media rather than to feel our challenging feelings.
Sadly, as with most numbing strategies (alcohol, over-eating, drugs) they feel good in the first instance but over time leave us feeling more stressed and low. Technology is just the modern-day numbing strategy. What we really need is to learn ways to process and be with challenging emotions first, and then use our technology for actions or information that are truly useful to us second.’
