Lightsail Containers: An Easy Way to Run your Containers in the Cloud

Image
When I am delivering an introduction to the AWS Cloud for developers, I usually spend a bit of time to mention and to demonstrate Amazon Lightsail . It is by far the easiest way to get started on AWS. It allows you to get your application running on your own virtual server in a matter of minutes. Today, we are adding the possibility to deploy your container-based workloads on Amazon Lightsail . You can now deploy your container images to the cloud with the same simplicity and the same bundled pricing Amazon Lightsail provides for your virtual servers. Amazon Lightsail is an easy-to-use cloud service that offers you everything needed to deploy an application or website, for a cost effective and easy to understand monthly plan. It is ideal to deploy simple workloads, websites, or to get started with AWS. The typical Lightsail customers range from developers to small businesses or startups who are looking to get quickly started in the cloud and AWS. At any time, you can later adopt th

PRIMM: encouraging talk in programming lessons

Image
https://ift.tt/3eZQTLN from Raspberry Pi Blog – Raspberry Pi Author Oliver Quinlan Whenever you learn a new subject or skill, at some point you need to pick up the particular language that goes with that domain. And the only way to really feel comfortable with this language is to practice using it. It’s exactly the same when learning programming. In our latest research seminar, we focused on how we educators and our students can talk about programming. The seminar presentation was given by our Chief Learning Officer, Dr Sue Sentance . She shared the work she and her collaborators have done to develop a research-based approach to teaching programming called PRIMM, and to work with teachers to investigate the effects of PRIMM on students. As well as providing a structure for programming lessons, Sue’s research on PRIMM helps us think about ways in which learners can investigate programs, start to understand how they work, and then gradually develop the language to talk about t

from 3D Print a Pocket Hole Jig #3DThursday #3DPrinting by gareth branwyn If you do woodworking and have access to a 3D printer, you can save money on pocket hole jigs (used to drill angled holes in wood for fastening to another board). This 3D printed jig is equivalent to the heavy-duty jig that Kreg sells for $70 (including bit and driver). Besides the few bucks in printer filament, the jig uses two ½” ID bushings.

Amazon Beefs Up AI in Alexa, and Gets Charged by EU With Unfair Practices 

Image
from AI Trends https://ift.tt/3pqFE43 Allison Proffitt https://ift.tt/3pqFtpp By John P. Desmond, AI Trends Editor   AI took center stage in recently-announced updates to the Alexa virtual voice assistant, and in the charges this week from the European Commission that Amazon is breaking EU competition rules.     During Amazon’s Alexa Live event held in July, the company announced a major update to Alexa’s developer toolkit that brings AI improvements. Since launching in 2014, Amazon’s voice assistant has shipped hundreds of millions of units, which are targeted by a sizable developer community offering voice apps, called Skills, that extend the Alexa default feature set. Just as the Android and iOS large selections of third party applications differentiate those operating systems, so Skill plays an important role in Amazon’s growth strategy for Alexa, according to a recent account in  siliconAngle .     Amazon added deep learning models for natural language understanding that the

Internet of Medical Things is Beginning to Transform Healthcare

AI poised to contribute analysis crucial to innovations such as smart hospitals.      Today’s internet-connected devices aim to improve efficiencies, lower care costs and drive better outcomes in healthcare, according to a recent account in  HealthTech Magazine . Devices in the  IoMT  domain extend to wearable external medical devices such as skin patches and insulin pumps; implanted medical devices such as pacemakers and cardioverter defibrillators; and stationary devices such as for home monitoring and connecting imaging machines.      Projections for IoMT market size were aggressive before the COVID-19 pandemic hit, with  Deloitte  sizing the market at $158.1 billion by 2022, with the connected

Scientists Employing ‘Chemputers’ in Efforts to Digitize Chemistry 

Image
from AI Trends https://ift.tt/3f1QrwM Allison Proffitt https://ift.tt/2UmBZG3 By AI Trends Staff   A “chemputer” is a robotic method of producing drug molecules that uses downloadable blueprints to synthesize organic chemicals via programming. Originated in the University of Glasgow lab of chemist Lee Cronin, the method has produced several blueprints available on the GitHub software repository, including blueprints for Re mdesivir , the FDA-approved drug for antiviral treatment of COVID-19.     Dr. Lee Cronin, Chair of Chemistry, University of Glasgow Cronin, who designed the “bird’s nest” of tubing, pumps ,  and flasks that make up the  chemputer , spent years thinking of a way researchers could distribute and produce molecules as easily as they email and print PDFs, according to a recent account from  CNBC .   “If we have a standard way of discovering molecules, making molecules, and then manufacturing them, suddenly nothing goes out of print,” Cronin stated. “It’s like an
