The Factory 2.0 team is back from Brno and DevConf. We had two talks to look for, one on Factory 2.0 current work and another done in conjunction with the Modularity team on Modularity itself. Since returning, we've been working with other teams to set our plans for F27 while simultaneously getting the module build service ready for production for F26.
Sometimes, the goal of a statistical model is to predict a value—for example, given a certain size and neighborhood, you can predict the price of a house. Or, given someone's age, weight and where they live, you can predict his or her likelihood of getting a certain disease.
Often, the goal is to predict a category—for example, in an upcoming election, for whom are people likely to vote? Taking into account where they live, what level of education they've received, their ethnic background and a few other factors, you can often predict for whom people will vote before they know it themselves.
This is the 19th post of a series of blog posts tracking the development and progress of Redox.

For those interested in the Rust-written Redox OS open-source operating system project, a brief status update was posted today.
Some latest Redox OS development efforts revolve around supporting NVMe (Non-Volatile Memory Express) storage and USB 3.0 / XHCI support. Redox is now running on NVMe SSDs and USB 3.0 is continuing to be worked on with a focus for USB Wireless network devices.
Storj Labs, a distributed cloud-storage provider, has created a peer-to-peer decentralized cloud storage solution. It protects your files both on the nodes and in transmission by using blockchain technology and cryptography to encrypt files. As an open-source project, Storj unites a large and growing community of developers who are committed to building tools, applications, and secure by design cloud storage.
Storj Labs announces new funding and general availability of its crowdsourced distributed storage platform, that lets anyone in the world sell their unused storage capacity, securely as part of an open marketplace.
Crowdsourcing, that is sourcing resources from many different individuals, is a popular concept for fundraising and for code development. Storj Labs is now bringing the idea of crowdsourcing to storage, enabling individuals to share their storage capacity in a secure encrypted way that makes use of Bitcoin's blockchain technology.
CoinScope, a tool that provides aggregated data about bitcoin nodes, has been made open source.
The code was made publicly available on GitHub on 22nd February. The project, which has been around since 2015, is somewhat akin to Bitnodes, the node data tool operated by startup 21 Inc that seeks to map the bitcoin network by measuring the amount of nodes connected at any given time.
