If you haven’t noticed the hordes of people across a variety of age groups walking around and bumping into each other while on their phones, then downloading Pokemon Go might be what you need in order to go out more. The game has been out for less than a week and is already shattering records for active users. This includes trumping other mobile games like Candy Crush, and even online platforms such as Twitter. That’s right, more people play Pokemon Go each day than use Twitter so it’s safe to say, it’s pretty big. But why? Awesome combat systems? The interactive Augmented Reality (AR)? To find out, let’s look at some of Go’s finer points and soon-to-come features.
Even considering the growth rate of recent technology, iPads and tablets are an impressive feat of functionality and compact usability. As a business tool, a substitute for your computer, or another way to binge-watch netflix, an iPad has countless uses and new apps are being created every day to increase its usability. Companies such as Moe Bull corporation however, have taken a more physical approach to usability instead of virtual and the newest Moe Bull iPad stand for bed is the perfect buy for any extended use of an iPad device.

Installed this week at the National Supercomputing Center in Wuxi, Sunway TaihuLight easily breaks its way into the top 10 of the international Top500 list for computing systems. More impressive however, is the margin by which it beats the #2 spot(also in China) to be the most powerful computing system in the world. With over 10.5 million locally-made processing cores and 40,960 nodes Sunway Taihu light is capable of 93 petaflops which is a term most people do not and should not ever need in their lives. Counting up trillions upon trillions is required to put that figure into perspective and it means 93 quadrillion floating-point operations per second (FLOPS). In other words… lots.
Main applications for the system for now include advanced manufacturing, weather forecasting, and big data analytics but we’ve seen computers less powerful being applied to genome mapping and heavily extensive theoretical physics equations. Software for a computer with multiple cores can be difficult to write but software to take advantage of 10 million would be almost as much effort as building the system itself depending on the goal functionality. For the nerdy out there, the Sunway TaihuLight is an extremely high-spec Grand Prix racing car. Fantastic for races in a circuit, but not something any one person would ever need in order to drive to work.
Another day, another awesome implementation of AI from Google. To combat the notorious energy consumption of data centers worldwide, Google has been using an AI system built by DeepMind to control certain parts of its data centers for increased environmental friendliness. For those who haven’t seen our article about AlphaGo, another DeepMind project by Google, here is a quick link to check it out. Although DeepMind is famous for developing AI technology and was able to beat the world’s best Go player, it hasn’t turned a profit for Google. Yet.

When designing print for screens, visual inspiration can strike at any moment. Colors, font sizes, and typefaces come in infinite combinations and varieties but rarely can a single person view one such sample and know what they’re looking at – much less save it for later use. This is exactly what the working prototypes of Spector are tackling and it’s looking to become one the most useful tools for online design.
