Twitter acquisition machine learning startups Magic Pony

With the global economy has entered a troubled acquisition of the technology sector also frequently staged. And Twitter's share price has been in a downward interval, the co-founder Jack Multiple regression since West Jack Dorsey, has been re-implemented user facing growing pressure. At this time, we must make some changes.
Twitter has also made a movement,announced the acquisition of machine learning start-up companies from London Magic Pony Technology. This company has a photo recognition technology; 

the algorithm can identify image features. Spokesman declined to disclose the purchase price. However, sources said, Twitter may pay $ 150million,including bonuses.

This is not the first time Twitter bet field of machine learning, which in July 2014 acquired Madbits, 2015 Nian acquired in June Whetlab, which is its third acquisition machine learning company.So far this year, Twitter's shares fell nearly 40% in the second quarter outlook is much lower than expected, more importantly, its subscriber growth almost stagnated.

 Twitter must enhance the attractiveness of the product to change the user growth and interaction.

After this acquisition was completed, Twitter will use its technology to improve the visual experience of their applications, help enhance the live and video services. The Magic Pony team will focus on the development and integration of people to easily find and share experience on participation.

For Twitter, it must be generated as soon as the acquisition of chemical reactions; there is a new product out of the growth and enhance the user experience. Otherwise, the stock continued to decline, then there may be acquired fall into the abyss. And this acquisition also indicates that, in a later period, or a video broadcast technology hot spots.

Microsoft launches NFC mobile payments For windows 10 mobile

As we all know, Microsoft has been in the smartphone in the country barely retain little corner, and this is Windows 10 Mobile hopes to aid the development of the entire ecosystem of Windows 10 to regain self-confidence.

So how to recover self-confidence? Of course, we have the ability to make yourself more to look cool, to attract users. Microsoft has just pushed a new version of Windows 10 Mobile Wallet (wallet) update package, upgrade to version 2.0Now, it supports NFC, colleagues can collect coupons, membership cards and other electronic instruments. But supported devices is limited, Lumia950, Lumia950 XL and Lumia650 users can directly through the phone close to the payment terminal the way to complete the payment in a physical store, to support more than one million retail outlets.

But Microsoft has done this thing is not perfect, at present, there are types of supported cards Visa and MasterCard, and American Express and Discover are not within the scope of support. In addition, Microsoft also announced support for NFC-enabled Bank, the existing Bank of American, BECU, First Tech Federal Credit Union, People's United Bank, Virginia Credit UnionFollow-up will be Chase, US Bank, Fifth Third Bank, on the whole, compared to iOS and Android camps, it can not reflect the advantage.

But at least, we see Microsoft in the back trying to catch a shadow. Because Windows10 Mobile also supports HCE Host card emulation mode, so you can not rely on the security and chip carriers, unrestricted use of mobile phones with NFC functionality on POS machines to pay credit card operations, and thus more quickly.

But given Microsoft's appeal in the market now, this feature can not help it sell more intelligent devices in the short term, but to enhance the payment experience for its entire ecosystem is helpful.

SpaceX rocket will be recovered first launch was postponed to autumn

In recovering the Thaicomm 8 Section rocket propulsion, the hangar now SpaceX rocket has placed four of the recovery. As the hangar was more crowded, the next question is, when will then be re-directed to a space in which to complete a recycling loop? Original SpaceX hopes to make the first attempt in May and June, but obviously, this point in time is too hasty, so the new Twitter posting in, Elon Musk expressed aim is now to September / October as the new duration. In fact, the technical problem is not that the first re-launch rocket considerations, there are many commercial planes. After re-launching rocket first time for all of us, not only SpaceX, to launch customer for this is a very high-risk experiment, but also for insurance underwriting what proportion should not have a conclusion. So despite the initial SpaceX reckoning use "pricing" rocket launchers recovered about a new rocket Qizhe about, but the first experiment of mice partners should also be no more concessions is it? Although up to now have not heard the first rocket launch from recycled customers who will be, at least in Luxembourg satellite operator SES has expressed a high level of interest, it should not lead no one is willing to try it! 

Mercedes-Benz: the autopilot is not a technical race, but the more extreme safety requirements

Although at this stage see a lot of the depot even technology companies , almost all toward Driveless unmanned vehicle technology in development, but most people feel small series such as myself, in fact, I feel that this is a bit like the field of technology arms race, look at the past is several super futuristic look (or cute) concept car, people think this technology seems to be still quite far away from us.But in fact, both the Tesla has recently been listed in Taiwan or the Mercedes-Benz new E-Class models, in fact, have been pre-loaded automatic / semi-automatic driving technology on which, basically as long as legislation can be more relaxed, in fact, the technology is at your fingertips to do it. As science and technology competition this matter, according to Mercedes-Benz in the meeting to share with the media in Taiwan, shows that such development is actually an extension of their existing assistive technology only for them, in fact, the purpose is simply to more extreme security to pursue, and nothing to the meaning of the competition with his factory. They are long hope to borrow from the variety of assistance systems and operating techniques to reduce human error to reduce the accident rate, through Intelligent Drive's driver assistance systems, it is hoped that they can achieve this goal "real security." 

What is the Mercedes-Benz in the eyes of "real security"? While more secure because more traffic thanks to science and technology, since research report can already be seen from 2001 to 2015, the traffic accident fatality rate in Europe and Japan and a few markets in all a marked decline. Even so, Mercedes still think we should also have a safer haven technology. Autopilot technology is an opportunity to achieve; you can then own sophisticated systems for five main types of accidents at this stage, more initiative to prevent driving errors. They believe that although the distance concept F015 future there is not a small distance segment - according to the speaker, Dr. Bernhard Morys (above) estimated that, in his view should be at least 50 years, but also a chance to realize (because there are too multi-technology may not appear or mature), but this will definitely be the future trend.
Fig stage ride in the intelligent driving techniques Benz vehicles has reached the second stage

Although the distance Driveless clearly still a good way to go (as shown above, from the next stage they are preliminary estimates suggest that at least more than a year or two). But it seems that at this stage, in fact, even if the point was suddenly full tech tree, statutes of many countries but still locked hands and feet in this area of development. For example, even now the market is basically some cars have been able to achieve a particular way, such as automatic driving standards on the highway, but because of the Act, in many countries, but still have to be limited to a lower speed limit, so practical of greatly reduced, it will naturally affect the willingness of consumers to buy. As for the question of attribution This intermediate has been talking about "Drivers vs. vehicle", and Mercedes-Benz use a very simple concept to explain this aspect of the home. 
Simply put, such as ABS or constant speed driving assistance systems such there is a very long time, and if such a brake system failure such problems occur, the responsibility will naturally find the depot, so autopilot if the system is out of the situation, of course, it is to assume responsibility for the depot - can be seen from the figure, from the height of the autopilot stage (Lv3) start, Mercedes-Benz has been placed beneath the attribution of responsibility "vehicle / manufacturing provider "above, we can see that they do not intend to play confused battle, some of the depots of the responsibility naturally they will be responsible. Therefore, they are more eager to Governments for such technology can relax in the Act, so that technological development in this area has more space to play. That is, because of this, in fact, the more exposed they are confident about their technology, also give consumers a certain degree of confidence in it.

Map of Mercedes-Benz Pre-Safe system even when slammed into a huge noise on hearing have found the program to reduce the ...

On the other hand, in fact, a computer system for the definition of "security" in the eyes of the people than to the narrow definition of a lot. Morris says many choose to stop waiting for the computer to lift the status of the case, in fact, people will feel a little a little closer / regulation can be passed violated one o'clock, so a lot of time but people will choose to switch back to manual driving. It is not difficult to imagine, after all, this is a priority to the safety of the system, so liberal than the driving operation, the probability of accidents will naturally be a lot (because it is very careful ah) is low. Therefore, such an explanation, looks like we do not have such a fear of the autopilot, right? I can only say that perhaps a beginning Google going too fast, the steering wheel does not have direct let autopilot vehicles on the road, but caused a lot of people worried, but in fact, this is the future we also have from the segment or short distance. Mercedes-Benz here is clearly more gradual approach to some, the way they want to assist the system, slowly in appearance and function are above or close to the general perception of vehicle models, add these automatic / semi-automatic driving function and with government agencies progressive harmonization, better synchronization of data collection and testing after opening with regulations, only to vehicle owners through a simple software update to use these more advanced and more intelligent driving assistance technology, and in more applications and technology promotion after they are also ready to take over and further "responsible for" driving this thing.

Map of the new Mercedes-Benz E-Class autopilot sensors sensing range schematic

I believe that the development direction of autopilot technology seems, in fact, Google, Tesla and Mercedes and other manufacturers no right or wrong way to pursue the issue. Background in science and technology of Google, with lovely autopilot car, greatly caused the market's attention, perhaps a bit aggressive and reckless, but soon enable the Government to face up to issues and technological developments in this area, it is a good thing. In fact, after the car appeared, they quickly for subsequent regulatory restrictions have made the control function settings.
