Announcing Perl 7

This morning at The Perl Conference in the Cloud, Sawyer X announced that Perl has a new plan moving forward. Work on Perl 7 is already underway, but it’s not going to be a huge change in code or syntax. It’s Perl 5 with modern defaults and it sets the stage for bigger changes later. My latest book Preparing for Perl 7 goes into much more detail.

Perl 7 is going to be Perl 5.32, mostly
Perl 7.0 is going to be v5.32 but with different, saner, more modern defaults. You won’t have to enable most of the things you are already doing because they are enabled for you. The major version jump sets the boundary between how we have been doing things and what we can do in the future …

Google Open Source Blog: Tsunami: An extensible network scanning engine for detecting high severity vulnerabilities with high confidence

We have released the Tsunami security scanning engine to the open source communities. We hope that the engine can help other organizations protect their users’ data. We also hope to foster collaboration, and encourage the security community to create and share new detectors on top of Tsunami.

When an attacker begins to exploit security vulnerabilities or security misconfigurations, such as weak passwords, an organization needs to react quickly in order to protect potentially vulnerable assets. With attackers increasingly investing in automation, the time window to react to a newly released, high severity vulnerability is usually measured in hours …

Robot built for Japan’s ageing workforce finds COVID-19 role

TOKYO: Mira Robotics developed its Ugo robot to reinforce greying Japan’s shrinking workforce, but as the coronavirus threat persists, the Japanese start-up is offering its machine as a tool in the fight against the outbreak, the company’s CEO said.

“The coronavirus has created a need for robots because they can reduce direct contact between people,” Ken Matsui told Reuters at his company’s workshop in Kawasaki, near Tokyo. “We’ve had inquiries from overseas, including from Singapore and France.” …

NHS Covid app developers ‘tried to block rival symptom trackers’

Developers claim government technology unit was hostile to other groups, hampering the fight against the disease

NHSX, the health service technology unit responsible for the government’s failed contact-tracing app, attempted to block rival apps to protect its own, hampering efforts to track the early spread of the coronavirus.

Developers of several apps were urged to stop work by either NHSX or the Ministry of Defence, who told them their apps might distract attention from NHSX’s app when it was launched. Last week the app was abandoned after three months, with work beginning on an alternative design without any deadline …

「論文を読むAI」でがんゲノム医療は迅速な治療検討が可能に 激変する医療AI業界

創薬 人間に不可能なレベルで一気に新薬の候補を発見




Today, we will be changing the multiverse ID and removing the Gatherer card image for the card Invoke Prejudice, originally printed in 1994. The card is racist and made even worse by the multiverse ID it was unfortunately codified with years ago. There’s no place for racism in our game, nor anywhere else.

But to that point, it should never have been published nor placed in the Gatherer. And for that we are sorry. The events of the past weeks and the ongoing conversation about how we can better support people of color have caused us to examine ourselves, our actions, and our inactions. We appreciate everyone helping us to recognize when we fall short. We should have been better, we can be better, and we will be better …

東芝は2020年6月3日、自動車やドローンなどの安全性向上や自動走行・自律飛行に用いる2つのAI(人工知能)技術で世界最高精度を達成したと発表した。1つは、カメラと慣性センサーの組み合わせだけで自車両の動きを高精度に推定する「自車両の動き推定AI」で、もう1つはさまざまな交通シーンで周辺車両の将来の動きを予測する「他車両の動き予測AI」。公開データを用いた実験により、推定結果と実距離の差の絶対値の平均である推定誤差について、従来技術と比較してそれぞれ40%削減したという。今後は、公道など実際の環境での評価を行い、2023年度の実用化を目指すとしている …
