Cubietruck is a small, open source mini PC with an Allwinner A20 dual-core CPU

Hardware

The Cubietruck is an upcoming mini-computer with a dual-core ARM Cortex-A7 processor, up to 2GB of RAM, Gigabit Ethernet, and WiFi and Bluetooth built in.

While it’s not the most powerful device of it’s type, the Cubietruck does have a few tricks up it sleeve, including out-of-the-box support for both Google Android and Ubuntu Linux.

Over the past year or two we’ve seen dozens, possibly hundreds of tiny desktop computers with ARM-based processors hit the street. The makers of the Cubieboard figured they could do better, and released a tiny PC last year with a faster CPU.

Google open-sources its software for making trippy images with deep learning

The deepdream project is now available on GitHub. The project relies on the open-source Caffe deep learning framework. Deep learning involves training artificial neural networks on a large pile of data — for example, pictures of geese — and then throwing them a new piece of data, like a picture of an ostrich, to receive an educated guess about it.
