TuxMachines: Google releases open source 'Cartographer'

Thursday 6th of October 2016 01:50:26 AM

Machine learning and vision are essential technologies for the advancement of robotics. When sensors come together, they can enable a computer or robot to collect data and images in real-time.

A good example of this technology in real-world use is the latest Roomba vacuums. As the robot cleans your dirty floor, it is using sensors combined with a camera to map your home. Today, Google releases Cartographer -- an open source project that developers can use for many things, such as robots and self-driving cars.

LXer: How to easily access YouTube and Vimeo content in Linux using Kaku

Wednesday 5th of October 2016 09:32:24 PM
Usually, people choose one service (YouTube in most cases) and stick to that for their daily usage, and it's hard to persuade them to use any other service once they get used to the one they have chosen. However, there are some software applications that make this whole process of trying different services less complicated and time-consuming. In this article, we will discuss one such application - dubbed Kaku - that supports multiple services including YouTube, Vimeo, and SoundCloud.

Reddit: The spirit we need.

Wednesday 5th of October 2016 09:15:18 PM

I just wanted to to share a github account with you. You may have heard about the tox project, and also about the rumours that it is dead. It is true that the tox project was in a very bad state since the lead developer, irungentoo, basically stopped working on it a few months ago.

Since then, tox was not really active. Just a short while ago, a developer called iphydf has started working on tox again. Writing tests, fixing the specitication, and so on.

I find this an admirable quality, just to have the self-discipline and the kindness to pick up an abandoned project and carry on with it, no matter how difficult to understand the codebase is.

I would just like to point to iphydf and point out that he/she is awesome, and embodies the spirit of the open source/free software/whatshagonnacallit movement.

A big applause for this remarkable person, please, and all the other developers building the infrastructure we need so desperately.

Edit: typos.

Suse: Question. What do you call second-place in ARM enterprise server linux? Answer: Red Hat

ARM TechCon Suse is claiming victory over Red Hat by announcing – and these caveats are all crucial – "the first commercial enterprise Linux distribution optimized for ARM AArch64 architecture servers." In plainer English, Suse has developed an enterprise-grade Linux distribution that runs on 64-bit ARM servers (should you happen to ever find one). Suse claims this software is a world first because it is a finished commercial product, thus beating Red Hat to the punch: Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server for ARM is still only available as a beta-like development preview.
