Microsoft Resumes Meltdown and Spectre Updates for AMD Devices

Slashdot.org - Thu, 01/18/2018 - 15:45
Microsoft has resumed the rollout of security updates for AMD devices. The updates patch the Meltdown and Spectre vulnerabilities. From a report: Microsoft released these patches on January 3, but the company stopped the rollout for AMD-based computers on January 9 after users reported crashes that plunged PCs into unbootable states. After working on smoothing out the problems with AMD, Microsoft announced today it would resume the rollout of five (out of nine) security updates.

Using TensorFlow to keep farmers happy and cows healthyUsing TensorFlow to keep farmers happy and cows healthy

GoogleBlog - Thu, 01/18/2018 - 15:20

Editor’s Note: TensorFlow, our open source machine learning library, is just that—open to anyone. Companies, nonprofits, researchers and developers have used TensorFlow in some pretty cool ways, and we’re sharing those stories here on Keyword. Today we hear from Yasir Khokhar and Saad Ansari, founders of Connecterra, who are applying machine learning to an unexpected field: dairy farming.

Connecterra means “connected earth.” We formed the company based on a simple thesis: if we could use technology to make sense of data from the natural world, then we could make a real impact in solving the pressing problems of our time.

It all started when Yasir moved to a farm in the Netherlands, near Amsterdam. We had both spent many years working in the technology industry, and realized that the dairy industry was a sector where technology could make a dramatic impact. For instance, we saw that the only difference between cows that produce 30 liters of milk a day and those that produce 10 liters was the animal’s health. We wondered—could technology make cows healthier, and in doing so, help farmers grow their businesses?

That thinking spurred us to start working weekends and evenings on what would eventually become Ida—a product that uses TensorFlow, Google’s machine learning framework, to understand and interpret the behavior of cows and give farmers insights about their herds’ health.

Ida learns patterns about a cow’s movements from a wearable sensor. We use this data to train machine learning models in TensorFlow, and ultimately, Ida can detect activities from eating, drinking, resting, fertility, temperature and more. It’s not just tracking this information, though. We use Ida to predict problems early, detecting cases like lameness or digestive disorders, and provide recommendations to farmers on how to keep their cows healthy and improve the efficiency of their farms. Using these insights, we're already seeing a 30 percent increase in dairy production on our customers’ farms.

By 2050, the world will have 9 billion people, and we need a 60 percent increase in food production to feed them. Dairy farmer assistance is just one example of how AI could be used to help solve important issues like this. And at Connecterra, by using AI to create solutions to big problems, we think technology can make a real impact.

Connecterra is using TensorFlow to help dairy farmers keep their cows healthy and farms running efficiently.

Global Warming Predictions May Now Be a Lot Less Uncertain

Slashdot.org - Thu, 01/18/2018 - 15:05
An anonymous reader shares a report: Humanity must not pass a rise of 2 degrees Celsius in global temperature from pre-industrial levels, so says the Paris climate agreement. Cross that line and the global effects of climate change start looking less like a grave situation and more like a catastrophe. The frustrating bit about studying climate change is the inherent uncertainty of it all. Predicting where it's going is a matter of mashing up thousands of variables in massive, confounding systems. But today in the journal Nature, researchers claim they've reduced the uncertainty in a key metric of climate change by 60 percent, narrowing a range of potential warming from 3C to 1.2C. And that could have implications for how the international community arrives at climate goals like it did in Paris. The metric is called equilibrium climate sensitivity, but don't let the name scare you.

Less Than 1 in 10 Gmail Users Enable Two-Factor Authentication

Slashdot.org - Thu, 01/18/2018 - 14:20
It has been nearly seven years since Google introduced two-factor authentication for Gmail accounts, but virtually no one is using it. From a report: In a presentation at Usenix's Enigma 2018 security conference in California, Google software engineer Grzegorz Milka this week revealed that, right now, less than 10 per cent of active Google accounts use two-step authentication to lock down their services. He also said only about 12 per cent of Americans have a password manager to protect their accounts, according to a 2016 Pew study.

Make Windows 10 Desktop Icons Bigger?

AskDaveTaylor - Thu, 01/18/2018 - 13:50

Ah yes, another reason to set up user accounts on your computer, whether you’re running Windows XP (you;re not, I hope), Windows 8, or the latest, Windows 10. Turns out it’s easy to do and then if someone messes up the settings, preferences, or goes on a file deletion rampage, all of your files, programs and settings are still safe. Here’s one solution I wrote about a few months ago, setting up simple local user-only accounts in Windows 10.

This doesn’t help your problem today, however, so let’s have a look at how to change the size of the file and folder icons on your Windows desktop and fix it all up! Worth knowing is that there are three sizes of icons you can chose from, small, medium and, well, large, and I’ll show all three.

To start, here’s a typical assortment of icons on Win10.1:

As with much in Windows, a right click is the gateway to fixing the problem. In this case, a right click on a blank area of the screen that has no icons, folders, or anything else will bring up the Desktop context menu:

As you can see, “View” gives you the options of small, medium or large icons. Let’s jump straight to Large icons here on Win10 and see the difference:

They’re quite a big larger. In fact, kind of too large. Let’s try Medium icons instead, sort of like Goldilocks and the Three Bears beds, right?

That’s better.

Note: It’s hard to convey the size differences here so try all three settings on your computer to see which works best for you!

Now that everything’s a good size again, have a quick peek at the Sort By menu option too (remember: right-click on a blank area to get the menu to show up):

Be careful before you change this setting, however, as you can’t undo the sort-by and icons zip all over the screen as it organizes things! Can be a bit disconcerting.

Anyway, that should get you back to your preferred Windows 10 Desktop icon sizes and configuration. Now, about your daughter changing your settings…

Senate Passes Bill Renewing NSA's Internet Surveillance Program

Slashdot.org - Thu, 01/18/2018 - 13:40
From a report: The U.S. Senate on Thursday passed a bill to renew the National Security Agency's warrantless internet surveillance program for six years and with minimal changes, overcoming objections from civil liberties advocates that it did too little to safeguard the privacy of Americans. From a report on CNET: The programs, known as Prism and Upstream, allow the NSA to collect online communications of foreigners outside the US. Prism collects these communications from internet services, and Upstream taps into the internet's infrastructure to capture information in transit. Some communications from Americans and others in the US are collected in the process. The vote Thursday renews the programs for six years. The House approved a bill renewing the programs last week. Former NSA contractor Edward Snowden first revealed the programs by leaking information about them to journalists in 2013. After the news coverage, the administration of President Barack Obama declassified much information about the programs.
