We Solved Sitting! (Sponsor)

We all sit, and we sit a lot. But we're not designed to sit. Slumped in front of screens for hours a day, our cores weaken, our posture collapses, our backs hurt, and our health deteriorates. QOR360's MD lead team of bodywork experts and designers created a revolutionary new chair - the Ariel - that makes sitting active, healthy, even fun! With thousands sold, and our award winning Ariel chair being used at companies like Google, we're helping the world sit better and get more done!

Stumble-proof robot adapts to challenging terrain in real time (5 minute read)

Researchers from Facebook AI have created a model for robotic locomotion that adapts in real-time to any terrain it encounters. Rapid Motor Adaptation was developed from the idea that humans and animals can change their movement automatically on different surfaces without any real understanding of the external environment. The system was trained entirely in simulation, and the resulting robot was able to walk on sand, mud, and other surface types with a high success rate. The technology can be generalized to train many other types of robots.
The Mini-LED Is the Future of Big Displays (3 minute read)

Mini-LED lights deliver a serious boost to contrast and dark-scene performance. While OLED displays are the benchmark against which other displays are judged by, they are expensive and have issues with brightness and image retention. Mini-LED screens are thicker, but this will likely not hold the technology back. OLED is still great for small devices, but Mini-LED will likely dominate larger, brighter displays in the future.

Search Atlas Shows How Google Results Differ Around the Globe (4 minute read)

Search Atlas is a tool that shows what Google results look like from around the world. Instead of returning one set of results, Search Atlas returns three columns of results selected from the more than 100 geographically localized versions of the search engine. The results show how differently the internet is experienced in other countries. Search Atlas aims to dispel the myth that search engines are neutral arbitrators of information. The different results can be due to attempts at localizing information. It is not always the result of information suppression.
