Jenkins new Declarative Pipeline Syntax, Google’s Project Wycheproof, OpenSSH 7.4, and Microsoft’s MS MARCO dataset—SD Times news digest: December 20, 2016

Jenkins has announced the beta version of its new Declarative Pipeline Syntax. Currently Jenkins provides a Scripted Pipeline Syntax. The Declarative Pipeline is not meant to replace the Script Pipeline, but extend it so users don’t have to worry about scripting at every aspect during the pipeline, according to the Jenkins team. “Declarative Pipeline enables … continue reading

A low-power Wi-Fi system for IoT, an open-source e-book for free, and Ruby on Rails updates—SD Times news digest: Dec. 9, 2016

University of Washington computer scientists and electrical engineers created a Passive Wi-Fi system that demonstrates how it’s possible to generate Wi-Fi transmissions using 10,000x less power than other Wi-Fi chipsets, and 1,000x less power than Bluetooth Low Energy and ZigBee. “Passive Wi-Fi transmissions can be decoded on off-the-shelf smartphones and Wi-Fi chipsets over distances of … continue reading

University of Toronto researchers train AI system to sing Christmas songs

Tired of the same old overplayed holiday songs? Step aside, Bing Crosby, because this artificial intelligence system is debuting its new (yet terribly creepy) Christmas carol. Researchers from the University of Toronto developed an AI system that took a holiday image and generated a Christmas song. Calling it a song is an overstatement though, since … continue reading

CSAIL creates algorithm that can make predictions in videos, RDM available for Firefox Developer Tools, and Technavio report maps out VRD market growth—SD Times news digest: Nov. 28, 2016

Humans are able to understand their surroundings without much thought, but teaching machines to predict future actions can be challenging for researchers. MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) have made advancements recently to tackle this. CSAIL researchers have developed a deep learning algorithm that can create a brief video that simulates the future … continue reading

Enterprises partnering with Bugcrowd to hunt down software bugs

Enterprises are teaming up with Bugcrowd, a crowdsourced security organization that helps fight back against the persistent hackers and vulnerabilities in software. According to Bugcrowd, the first bug bounty program was created in late 1995 by Jarrett Ridlinghafer, a technical support engineer at Netscape. The goal was to find bugs in Netscape’s Navigator 2.0 Internet … continue reading

MIT CSAIL researchers create video-trained AI that produces realistic sounds

As a way to help machines and robots better understand the objects and environment around them, researchers at MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) have created an algorithm that can effectively learn how to predict sound. According to the researchers’ paper, “The algorithm uses a recurrent neural network to predict sound features from … continue reading

jQuery 3.0 beta released, Yahoo’s machine-learning dataset, and Obama’s budget proposal for self-driving cars—SD Times news digest: Jan. 15, 2016

jQuery is celebrating its 10th anniversary, and to commemorate that it is announcing the beta release of jQuery 3.0. Version 3.0 is the first major release from jQuery in years. In July, the jQuery team announced the alpha version with jQuery Compat 3.0, but due to Microsoft dropping support for IE8, IE9 and IE10, it … continue reading

Researchers discover emerging class of C++ bugs, Intel’s diversity report, and Android Experiments—SD Times news digest: Aug. 13, 2015

Researchers from Georgia Tech have discovered an emerging class of C++ bugs, and Facebook has awarded them US$100,000 for their efforts. The bugs are rooted in a new method for identifying “bad casting” vulnerabilities in C++ programs casted dynamically or statically at runtime. The researchers, who presented their findings at the USENIX Security ’15 conference, … continue reading
