Coronavirus jumped between people via elevator surfaces, study shows - Business Insider

  • New research reveals that an elevator can be a coronavirus transmission hotspot, even if an infected person doesn't have symptoms and doesn't ride with anyone else.
  • According to a new CDC study, the downstairs neighbor "likely became infected by using the elevator in the building" after the asymptomatic carrier had ridden it, the study authors wrote.
  • They think transmission likely occurred when the neighbor touched surfaces and buttons in the elevator.
  • No other residents in the building tested positive, but contact tracing later revealed the neighbor was patient zero of a 71-person cluster in the local community.
  • Elevators also tend to lack strong airflow, which mean people who have COVID-19 (no matter whether they're presymptomatic, asymptomatic, or feeling ill) could leave some virus behind.
  • Indeed, a May study found the coronavirus' genetic material on elevator buttons in a hospital in Wuhan, China.

New revamped version of the AnyMeal recipe management software

  • More than 15 years ago after leaving university I developed a GNU/Linux software called AnyMeal for managing a large amount of recipes.
  • The AnyMeal software used the recode library to convert recipe text files to the UTF-8 encoding.
  • A fast Flex parser then converted the MealMaster recipes to XML.
  • The graphical user interface used multiple windows to display recipes and lists of search results.
  • Now many years later it still looks like there is a space for a fast recipe management software which can handle a large amount of MealMaster recipes.
  • This greatly simplified the software because SQLite3 does not require the setup of user accounts and databases.
  • Like that it is not necessary for the Flex parser to be UTF-8 aware any more thus simplifying the implementation.
  • Most of the work of the rewrite was implementing a simpler Flex parser and reimplementing the recipe editor.

Model with TensorFlow and Serve on Google Cloud Platform

  • In this guide, we learn how to develop a TensorFlow model and serve it on the Google Cloud Platform (GCP).
  • We consider a regression problem of predicting the earnings of products using a three-layer neural network implemented with TensorFlow and Keras APIs. In this guide, we will use the TensorFlow 2.1.0 and Google colab runtime environment.
  • Google colab offers the training of machine learning models on free GPU and TPU.
  • To define the deep learning model, we use the Keras API module shipped with TensorFlow 2.1.0 We start with a basic model with two intermediate relu layers.
  • Let us read the sample input data and test our model to predict and save the model locally for future use.
  • In this guide, we have learned about training the deep learning models with TensorFlow 2.1.0 and deploying the trained model on the google cloud platform.

Discord, a quarantine tech darling, raises another $100 million

  • New York (CNN Business) - One of the fastest growing communications apps is Discord, known primarily within the gaming community.
  • Discord has a feature that lets gamers share their screens and livestream the game they're playing to friends in a voice call.
  • At the start of the growing pandemic in March, Discord increased the number of people who can tune into a livestream to 50 users.
  • In a test conducted by CNN Business in May, an online birthday party of 19 people quickly ran into technical issues, as new users had to download the Discord app or encountered audio issues when speaking via the web browser page.
  • And when trying a new video game during a media Discord event, CNN Business observed other users using the wrong channel to ask for tech support and having difficulty getting the mic and audio to work.

Statistics measures are the best starter

  • Statistics contains many basic concepts including descriptive statistics which summarize data from a sample using indexes such as the mean or standard deviation, and inferential statistics, which draw conclusions from data that are subject to random variation.
  • Probability theory, in addition to explaining random phenomena, examines phenomena that are not necessarily random, but by repeating the test many times, the results follow a specific pattern.
  • While regression analysis is often employed in such a way as to test theories that the current values of one or more independent time series affect the current value of another time series, this type of analysis of time series is not called “time series analysis”, which focuses on comparing values of a single time series or multiple dependent time series at different points in time.
