But that’s not to say that it’s stuck in the past — thanks to a partnership with IBM, Wimbledon is using Watson to automate key parts of the iconic tennis event. One area where this is most apparent is in the editorial side of the iconic tennis tournament. Previously, the task of creating highlight packages and annotating photographs would be the responsibility of a human. But this year round, the job is placed in the hands of the Watson…...

Днем 27 июня на Украине и в России, а затем и в других странах мира начал распространяться вирус-вымогатель, который блокирует доступ к данным и требует 300 долларов в биткоинах за разблокировку. Вирус в различных модификациях известен еще с 2016 года. Распространяется он, как и многие другие вредоносные программы, через спам-письмо: например, первые версии Petya маскировались под резюме. Схема работы Petya уже была подробно описана специалистами по компьютерной безопасности.

With increased competition in the telecom market, it has become even more vital for telecom operators to be proactive in providing services to their customers and to position themselves accurately in the complex market. Indeed, operators have generally shifted their focus from customer acquisition to customer retention, because with the near saturated market, it is simply deemed more cost-effective. Once big data enters the scene, operators get a leg up in understanding their customers and in making accurate business decisions. Using the right technology, telecoms can have access to the information they seek in almost real time. Why should we…...

В 2017 году сразу в нескольких крупных городах США начались кампании по сносу монументов Конфедерации — памятников и мемориалов, посвященных подвигам южан в Гражданской войне. Призывы убрать из городов памятники генералам Юга, которые в большинстве своем были рабовладельцами, активизировались после участившихся случаев убийств афроамериканцев белыми полицейскими и других преступлений на почве расовой ненависти. Власти нескольких городов распорядились перенести самые неоднозначные монументы в музеи — однако демонтировать памятники приходилось под охраной полиции и часто под покровом ночи, чтобы избежать беспорядков и не провоцировать ту часть общества, которая считает наступление на мемориалы Конфедерации попыткой переписать историю США.
