Very proud of insanely hard work by +Ganesh Shankar & the team
Jay Achar was treating Ebola patients at a makeshift hospital in Sierra Leone. He needed more time, and he needed better tech.

Ah ... somehow I always imagined it would be more colourful. But from that viewpoint I guess colours are never very strong.

python solves all known problems
 
"It works out the time until the next Archers episode, then plays the Radio 4 stream, slowed down just enough to allow you to skip the next episode."

Via +Robert Hamilton , for +Peter Taylor in particular.
As requested by @libbymiller, here is my Python script that plays the best radio station in the world: Radio 4 without the Archers. It works out the time until the next Archers episode, then plays ...

My first piece as Buenos Aires correspondent for SmartPlanet, in which role I am unlucky enough to follow in the Sasquatch-sized footsteps of +Ian Mount

Last summer, I spent several months working with Google’s Knowledge team in Mountain View, working with Jeff Dean and an incredible group of scientists and engineers who have a real shot at making spectacular progress in machine learning. Together with two of my recent graduate students, Ilya Sutskever and Alex Krizhevsky (who won the 2012 ImageNet competition), I am betting on Google’s team to be the epicenter of future breakthroughs. That means we’ll soon be joining Google to work with some of the smartest engineering minds to tackle some of the biggest challenges in computer science. I’ll remain part-time at the University of Toronto, where I still have a lot of excellent graduate students, but at Google I will get to see what we can do with very large-scale computation.

This tyranny would not stand if the right of the Britons to keep and bear arms had not been infringed.

One of my favorites in Paris. So lucky to have this locally. M. le maître (formerly worked with Alain Ducasse) is super-friendly and the menu is always changing and always interesting and excellent.
