MMW has learned that data Artisans — founded by the original creators of Apache Flink — has rolled out the general availability of dA Platform – the industry’s first turnkey stream processing platform that “enables enterprises to get insights from data in milliseconds and power next-generation service-centric applications and business models.”
We’re told that the new release productionizes stream processing and enables companies to provide live data applications as a centralized enterprise service. dA Platform dramatically reduces the manpower, cost and effort required to deploy stream processing applications in production, and provides a reliable and high-impact stream processing platform across an organization.
Following an early access program in which the platform was extensively tested across large-scale environments, dA Platform is enterprise ready with a trial version available for download here.
Analysts predict the streaming analytics market will reach $ 15.9 billion USD by 20221, as companies across industries are transitioning from a product-centric business model to one based on relationships and a services-centric model. For example, auto manufacturers are introducing new car-sharing and ride-sharing services as car ownership shifts to a usage-based model; consumer banks are creating new messaging applications for communicating with customers in real time to provide more seamless management of their personal finances; and insurance companies are offering dynamically priced insurance products tailored for customers based on their usage data. Stateful stream processing has emerged as the technological standard to enable this transformation.
“A streaming data architecture is the signature DNA of companies that have disrupted industries ranging from financial services to telecom to high technology and more, and enterprises of all types are under pressure to be able to react to data in real time so they can compete today,” said Kostas Tzoumas, co-founder and CEO of data Artisans. “dA Platform makes it easier than ever for businesses to deploy and manage streaming applications, allowing them to focus on building strategic new real-time products and services for customers rather than the supporting infrastructure.”
Samsung Electronics announced a new application processor (AP), the Exynos 7 9610. Manufactured on Samsung’s 10nm FinFET process, it offers premium features to mid-tier smartphones, boasting deep learning-based image processing and slow-motion video capture capabilities.
Comprised of four Cortex-A73 cores clocked at 2.3GHz and four Cortex-A53s at 1.6GHz, plus a Mali-G72 GPU, multimedia is the focus with the Exynos 7 9610. The highlight here is the neural network engine powering the improved image and vision processing.
Gaming headphones all tend to come with lofty promises about 7.1 sound, or special spatial audio imaging, or some other gimmick that can entice people to buy them. Audiophile headphone maker Audeze is getting into this gimmick game with the announcement of its new Mobius headset — though the difference here is that Audeze’s gimmick is really rather awesome. I tried out a prototype of the Mobius at CES back in January, and I’ve been excited to see the finished product ever since.
Audeze’s trick with the Mobius is to create a soundstage that is fixed in your real-world environment and doesn’t shift with movements of your head. So if a sound source is on the right edge of the screen in front of you, tilting or turning your head, or even…
MediaTek at the MWC 2018 unveiled Helio P60, the company’s latest processor for mid-range smartphones. The company says that it is the first SoC platform with a multi-core AI processing unit (mobile APU) and MediaTek’s NeuroPilot AI technology. It promises 70% CPU performance boost over the Helio P23 and Helio P30, in addition to a 70% GPU performance enhancement. It is based on 12nm TSMC’s FinFET technology. It features four ARM Cortex A73 2 GHz CPUs and four ARM Cortex A53 2 GHz CPUs in an Octa-Core big.LITTLE configuration. It says that the P60 is up to 12% more efficient overall and up to 25% more power efficient in highly demanding games compared to P23. It has MediaTek’s CorePilot 4.0 technology, with thermal management, user experience monitoring and Energy Aware Scheduling (EAS). The NeuroPilot AI technology works seamlessly across CPU, GPU and Mobile APU within the SoC to maximize performance and energy efficiency. The MediaTek’s NeuroPilot SDK in P60 is compatible with Google Android Neural Networks API (Android NNAPI), and also supports common AI frameworks, including TensorFlow, TF Lite, Caffe, and Caffe2. The company is working on bringing ONNX support to the chipset in Q2 2018 to provide developers with even more flexibility … Fone Arena
A mistake in which Search Ads Basic reports were sent to the wrong developers was linked to a "processing error," and safeguards have been put in place to prevent a repeat incident, Apple said this week. AppleInsider – Frontpage News
The follow-up email blames the mishap on a “processing error” and adds that all future reports of these kind will require developers to sign into their accounts to view their dashboards to ensure this issue does not occur again.
Thank you for being a part of the iOS developer community and for using our new Search Ads Basic service.
Due to a processing error, the January monthly results email we sent to you contains incorrect app promotion information.
Accurate performance information is always available in your Search Ads account. To ensure such an issue will not recur, all future performance communications will direct you to sign in to your account to view your Dashboard.
We apologize for the inconvenience this error has caused. We value your business and will work hard to make our new Basic service something you’ll love.
Introduced late last year, Search Ads Basic works so that developers only pay out if a user installs the app. It includes suggestions on how much a developer should pay based on historical data pulled from the App Store based on the type of app being marketed, and uses App Store trends to target the ideal audience.
Apple has apologized to developers after sending Search Ads Basic reports to the wrong people. It blames the issue on a “processing error” and says future reports will require users to sign into their accounts. Apple cares more than most of Silicon Valley when it comes to protecting our privacy. It takes great steps to […]
Most photo filters in apps like Instagram are intended to retain the general vibe of the original photo, but Prisma is different. This app processes your photos into completely new pieces of art with the power of neural networks. It’s like if Google’s DeepDream engine became your camera. Prisma has undergone some changes since it debuted in 2016, and today it adds something big. Specifically, big photos.
According to the changelog, Prisma can now process your photos at resolutions up to 12MP.
