September 29, 2018 | NASA Headquarters Washington, D.C. – Since the beginning of civilization, humanity has wondered whether we are alone in the universe. As NASA has explored our solar system and beyond, it has developed increasingly sophisticated tools to address this fundamental question. Within our solar system, NASA’s missions have searched for signs of both ancient and current life, especially on Mars and soon, Jupiter’s moon Europa. Beyond our solar system, missions, such as Kepler and TESS, are revealing thousands of planets orbiting other stars.

Intel issued a sharply worded statement Friday evening disputing rival Qualcomm's allegation that Intel had stolen technology to use in Apple's iPhones. "It is easy to say things. But Intel's track record is clear," Intel general counsel Steven Rodgers wrote on the company's website. He noted that courts have previously ruled against Qualcomm's charges of patent infringement and unfair business practices. "As one of the world's largest patent holders, Intel respects intellectual property," Rodgers said. "But we also respect truth, candor and fair competition. And we look forward to continuing to compete with Qualcomm." As part of ongoing litigation with Apple, Qualcomm alleged earlier this week that Apple had stolen software to improve Intel modems for iPhones. Amid the litigation, Apple dumped Qualcomm modems from the latest iPhone models and switched to Intel technology. -- Mike Rogoway | twitter: @rogoway | 503-294-7699 … [Read more...] about Intel fires back at Qualcomm, denies stealing technology

As Mike Vance approaches the glass door that leads to RealNetworks’ engineering office, he smiles slightly at a small camera mounted in front of him. Click. The door unlocks, responding to a command from software powering the camera that recognized Vance’s face and confirmed his identity. Vance, a senior director of product management at the Seattle tech company, leads the team that created Secure, Accurate Facial Recognition — or SAFR, pronounced “safer” — a technology that the company began offering free to K-12 schools this summer. It took three years, 8 million faces and more than 8 billion data points to develop the technology, which can identify a face with near perfect accuracy. The short-term goal, RealNetworks executives say, is increased school safety. “There’s a lot of benefit for schools understanding who’s coming and going,” Vance said. The software is already in use at one Seattle school, and … [Read more...] about As facial-recognition technology grows, so does wariness about privacy
