Docker's momentum has been increasing by the week, and from that it's clearly touching on real problems. However, for many production users today, the pros do not outweigh the cons. Docker has done fantastically well at making containers appeal to developers for development, testing and CI ...

+Louis-Philippe Reid I think he hits it right on the head with most of the problems he points out, though there are good solutions to many of them, and some are very niche

US President Barack Obama has signed an executive order to create the world's first exaflop supercomputer.
A supercomputer so advanced that it could replicate the workings of the human brain is planned by the US government.

Ok radar is old news but seeing an asteroid moving at a distance of 1.5 million miles of earth is still impressive. 
Asteroid 2011 UW158 is irregularly shaped and has an unusually fast spin. The asteroid is 2000X1000 feet across (600X300 meters) and made its closest approach to earth at 1.5 million miles on July 19th, 2015. The "fast rotation suggests the object has greater mechanical strength than other asteroids its size," according to NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory. One hour and 45 minutes of spin is time-lapsed in the video. The Deep Space Network antenn...

AI is starting to have an effect on the speed at which human knowledge is increasing and this is only the early beginnings. I am an optimist and I'm really eager to see what's to come in the coming years.

"DeepBind is one example of a series of technologies that we have developed by combining our expertise in deep learning and genome biology. I believe that these technologies will revolutionize health care and precision medicine. They are game changers."
 
DeepBind is a deep learning system that "can analyze noisy experimental data to determine the DNA and RNA sequences to which a set of proteins will bind. Then, it can look at a new sequence and compute a score saying how likely it is that any of these proteins would bind to it. Given a sequence with a mutation, the tool can analyze whether binding changes. Mutations that add or delete protein binding sites can alter gene expression patterns and lead to disease."
A new tool called DeepBind uses deep learning to analyze how proteins bind to DNA and RNA, allowing it to detect mutations that could disrupt cellular processes and cause disease.

Russia has formally notified its International Space Station partners that it will continue in the partnership at least to 2024, ending several months of doubts that were fueled by the current poor state of Russia’s relations with the West.

There's a scary-sounding story going around this morning about the "worst Android vulnerability in the mobile OS history!" (Exclamation point theirs, not ours.) The gist is that malware could be embedded in a video, which theoretically could be exploited without you doing a single thing. And, oh, just about every Android phone is vulnerable. So should you worry? Let's discuss. What...

This article is 15 years old, still it is interesting for those of you, like me, who thought that the speed of light was some mythical limit... Why can't we go faster? Don't limit me! :-)

How gut bacteria affect the brain - Business Insider

'... more and more evidence that somehow, the bacterial colonies that live in our guts can affect and even somehow control how we feel.

Mark Lyte has been studying this relationship for approximately 30 years.

When he first started this work, "it was dismissed as a curiosity," according to a recent profile of research into the gut-brain connection in The New York Times, but over time, as Lyte and others continued to publish their research, they uncovered more and more compelling evidence that bacteria could not only affect but could perhaps even be a causal factor in mental disorders — something that implies they could also be eventually used to treat these same conditions.
