It unites South Africans of all colours, and its rich, smoky smell floats over towns and suburbs across the country every long and lazy Sunday.It’s the braai, what the rest of the English-speaking world calls a barbeque. But instead of sad little hamburger patties over a damp fire, the South African braai is a sumptuous day-long orgy of cooking and eating, with huge hunks of beef, marinated kebabs, chicken pieces and traditional sausage roasted over the flames, accompanied by a thick corn porridge known as pap, slathered with sauces and accompanied by a range of salads, all made and washed down with lots of local beer.It’s started a movement called Braai 4 Heritage, of which Tutu is a vocal patron. This year a certain Jan Braai (real name Jan Scannell), head of Braai 4 Heritage, set the Guinness World Record for the longest braai. After 28 hours and 30 minutes, the world record was in South Africa, he said, “where it belongs”.Central to the braai is boerewors, or farmer’s sausage: long, thick strings of richly spiced meat that brings joy to the hearts of South Africans the world over, even as it terrifies their arteries.Here’s how to make it.US recipe3.5 ounces large pork intestinal casings2 tablespoons lemon juice3.5 pounds topside beef1 pound boneless lamb leg meat1 pound sheep’s tail fat5 ounces pork back fat2.5 tablespoons whole coriander seed1 tablespoon ground black pepper1 tablespoon salt1 teaspoon nutmeg, freshly grated1 teaspoon powdered cloves5 tablespoons brown vinegarWash casings under cold tap, then soak in bowl of water with lemon juice. Mince or chop very fine the beef, lamb meat, sheep’s tail fat and pork back fat. Combine.Toast coriander seed in dry pan until aromatic, then grind in pestle and mortar, and sift. Mix with pepper, salt, nutmeg and cloves and sprinkle over meat. Add vinegar, and mix all together with a light touch – the key is not to squash the meat.Assemble a hand-cranked meat grinder, without the mincing or cutting plate. Pull the mouth of each pork casing as far over and up the output end as possible. Get an assistant to feed the meat into the mincer while you guide the growing sausage with your hands. Don’t overfill, avoid air pockets and, when the casing is full, tie a knot in each end.

Oxford to Offer Joint Computer Science and Philosophy Degree – Here’s How to Play Along at Home

first_imgklint finley Tags:#hack#tips 7 Types of Video that will Make a Massive Impac… Why You Love Online Quizzes Last week Oxford announced a joint computer science and philosophy undergraduate degree. The only thing surprising about this announcement is that it’s taken this long to marry these courses of study. Although there’s a bit of hostility towards philosophy in the Hacker News thread on the subject, there’s a general agreement that it’s a worthwhile idea.How will the program work? And will there be any study materials for us to play along with at home? Read on.The ProgramWhat exactly will the program cover? According to Oxford’s website:The programme is largely modelled on the Computer Science half of the “Mathematics and Computer Science” programme and the Philosophy half of the “Mathematics and Philosophy” programme. The first year of the degree covers core material in both subjects, including a bridging course studying Alan Turing’s pioneering work on computability and artificial intelligence. Later years include a wide range of options, with an emphasis on courses near the interface between the two subjects. The fourth year provides you with the opportunity to study advanced topics and to undertake a more in-depth research project.There may be a more practical downside the combination, however. A Hacker News commenter using the name user24 writes:I completed my MSc in Computer Science at Oxford in 2009. My undergrad degree was a joint honours IT and Philosophical Studies BA (UoW Lampeter).From my (limited) knowledge of how comlab/Oxford works, it looks like students will be splitting their time between the philosophy department and comlab.I can’t quite see how they’re marrying the two together. I know from my first degree that it’s a great combination – there’s more crossover than you’d initially think. But it does rather seem as though you’d just be splitting your time between two very different departments, rather than literally studying the two subjects in harmony.Play From HomeThere’s no mention yet of MIT-like open courseware. But if, like most of us, you won’t be able to take this program at Oxford you might be interested in the site Less Wrong. It’s run by Future of Humanity Institute, a group at Oxford that some on Hacker News speculate may have something to do with this new program. In particular check out References & Resources for LessWrong, a treasure trove for autodidacts.center_img How to Write a Welcome Email to New Employees?

World Economic Forum opens “Industry 4.0” center in San Francisco’s Presidio

first_imgHow Connected Communities Can Bolster Your Busi… Can we call it “PresiDavos?” The World Economic Forum — best known for its annual who’s-who gathering of thinkers in Davos, Switzerland — opened its Center for the Fourth Industrial Revolution in San Francisco this morning, a new space for accelerating technology and science associated with the current data-driven tech revolution.The center will be a meeting place for politicians and city planners to chat with the individuals and companies working on the groundbreaking technologies that will have a huge impact on the workforce of the future.See Also: World’s largest new IoT networks launched at MWC“The 4th revolution is reshaping industries, challenging existing regulatory frameworks, and redefining what it means to be a human,” said Murat Sönmez, Member of the Managing Board and Head of the Center. “We need to urgently develop policy norms and frameworks and apply these innovations to ensure their benefits affect us all. This is the purpose of the Center and its work starts today.”Artificial intelligence, national digital policies, cross-border data flows, drones, autonomous vehicles and environmental technology will all be discussed at the center, alongside any new innovations that come out of Silicon Valley or another tech hub.Expect big names at openingSeveral big name CEOs will be involved in the center, including Salesforce CEO Marc Benioff, Alibaba co-founder Jack Ma, and Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella. Other tech executives from Germany, India, UK and Turkey were present at the opening on Friday.Aside from Benioff’s Salesforce, other inaugural tech industry partners include Kaiser Permanente, Microsoft, Palantir, SAP, Huawei, IDEO, Reliance Industries, and Turkcell “Technology companies cannot do their work in isolation—we must be aware of the effects our innovations have on societies and the environment as a whole,” said Marc Benioff, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Salesforce. “This global Center will allow us to much better understand the impact we have on society, and the positive role we can play.”The center could be a place for politicians and public figures to learn more about the technologies that are entering into the industry and consumer market. Most don’t know how close artificial intelligence or autonomous cars are to the mainstream, and the World Economic Forum could help crystalize the timelines, allowing streamlined and effective policy.

Break the Mold with Real-World Logistics AI and IoT

first_imgFollow the Puck Faiz Shaikh heads brand content management in a globally leading cloud-based logistics optimization company, LogiNext. He has written multiple industry-renowned white papers covering tech-backed innovations in logistics and transportation. He continually writes deep insightful articles on the role of technology in improving last mile deliveries on multiple platforms. Faiz ShaikhBrand Content Manager Why IoT Apps are Eating Device Interfaces Related Posts AI: How it’s Impacting Surveillance Data Storage Tags:#artificial intelligence#Internet of Things#IoT#transportation We have been talking a lot, lately, about the Internet of Things (IoT) and Artificial Intelligence (AI). So much so that it’s now difficult to differentiate the real from the not-so-real or purely ‘marketing’ IoT and AI. Data mining isn’t AI. Marketers have been doing it for a good three decades, and others likewise. It’s using intelligent correlations and cohorts to find patterns and latent needs. That’s not much that is artificial about the issue nor situation.There should be a new marketing codebook with these lines: “Thou shalt not cite IoT and AI in vain.” I don’t know how, but the salesperson calls my latest watch “AI enabled,” whether they have AI or not. The clock is not even smart; at best, it’s just digital. When you wipe off the not-so-real jargon and look at the actual applications of AI and IoT, they are aplenty. But how do we find what is actually true — in a world so taken with these terms? It’s simple.Just know the story behind the pitch. Does the product or solution improve over time? In a customer-facing scenario, does it customize itself to your language (maybe like the Amazon Echo). In a more enterprise setting, does it offer better/faster delivery routes for your logistics movement each time you use it? Does it incrementally better itself with a singular goal of improving the results, learning and adjusting? If yes (to any), then it’s AI.A system which learns on itself and tells right from wrong;A recent use-case comes to mind. The company I am associated with, LogiNext, used Kalman filters (algorithm). NASA made the Kalman filter famous when they used the algorithm in their effort to better direct satellites in near and outer space. According to a paper, right back from 1985,“The Kalman filter in its various forms has become a fundamental tool for analyzing solving a broad class of estimation problems.”The company in question used an updated iteration of the Kalman filter to fix vital tracking information of hundreds of trucks moving across the country. Hence, each tracking point was, then, accurate up to 3×3 yards. What’s the impact?Precise knowledge of where each truck is located.Where the truck will be in the future.And when this vehicle will reach the destination; down to the minute.The updated algorithm, with the layer of Kalman filter, learns from the tracking errors. It is essential as the tracking is hardware and network coverage dependent. It identifies patterns in the tracking data to understand what is ‘credible’ monitoring and what’s an error. The system would itself know which tracking data to use and which to ignore, growing the accuracy with continued functioning. In turn, this would ensure that the information going into the system for processing and route planning is accurate. More importantly, avoiding another case of ‘garbage in, garbage out.’ It would be more consistent with incrementally better plans each time it’s used.Here’s the IoT you can use, with complete logistics streamlining.Logistics is primarily a game of Service Level Agreements, SLAs. A company/carrier needs to adhere to these basic unit agreements, SLAs, or minimum viable service levels. It may be when a shipment leaves, the quality of the truck or environment for the cargo, the time when it needs to reach, etc. These SLAs are the code of conduct for carriers, drivers, and companies. They are specific to each shipment. SLA breaches are a serious affair and may result in delays and eventual penalties.So, with SLAs at the center stage, when you must track a package from perhaps LA to NY, you would expect a continuous flow of information regarding the location and state of your package, along with tracking the adherence to the all-important SLA, the ‘promised delivery time.’ How is your estimated time of arrival (ETA) looking as the package is exchanged between carriers, hubs, delivery centers, and the final mile couriers?It’s a dynamic logistical world where even local traffic and weather may become disruptors. If you simplify the entire end-to-end movement of your package – there’s the pickup, the hub-to-hub movement, and the delivery. It’s possible that all this would be dealt with different drivers, trucks, etc., changing multiple hands. How would you know if any of these drivers are more prone to speeding or delays? How would you know if the truck loaded with your package is well-equipped to handle it? All of the maneuverability allows logistic leaders to use AI right now. Here’s how IoT and AI help.It’s the system, an intricate-interwoven-intelligent ecosystem of software and devices where right from the moment the package leaves your hand; it’s tracking capture the unique id and driver details, aligning-in all possibilities, down to the climate in New Jersey a day from the end-delivery time.This system picks the best-suited driver and trucks for the package as per the promised timelines, nature of the package (perishable, fragile, sensitive, burdensome, etc.), route requirements and delays expected/predicted, hours of service for each driver (ELD/DoT compliances), etc.All the information is beamed-up into a single screen where a manager can view all his/her trucks across state lines, and the possibilities of any delays whatsoever. This monitoring empowers the manager (and the brand involved) to take on corrective measures and avoid final delays for the end-customer.Furthermore, this kind of detailed analysis and pin-point accuracy of multiple systems seamlessly talking to each other adds on a layer of predictability. Here the manager can efficiently predict, how many, trucks would continue to accommodate the possible load coming in, correctly. This is without having the need to dip into the spot markets. Conclusion? Only the beginning for IoT, AI, and yes — Machine learning, too.All this brings us to the summation of the main ‘gains’ of IoT and AI with real-world applications in logistics.1.  Risk estimation – Cutting down on possible delays, SLA breaches, and service disruptions.2.   Cost savings – Companies that can predict their carrying capacities (of trucks) precisely as per load variations (seasonal, regional, random aberrations), can plan better with their owned and market-sourced vehicles and boost their margins with favorable freight rates.3.   Customer satisfaction – The ‘holy grail’ comes within grasp, as companies can reverse engineer the perfect delivery experience using AI (exhaustive delivery route permutations to get the quickest one, consistently), and deliver on time, every time.Perhaps it’s time we speak of AI and IoT as “tools,” which they are. They aren’t ‘magic’ solutions to each of our problems. Just last week my investment advisors told me that they could double my savings. When I asked them how they planned to do it, they quickly came back with ‘We’ll use AI.’ The funny part was that I wasn’t supposed to ask anything else. Well, I did, and now I am looking for better investment advisors.Moral: Don’t let the terms bog you down. Look beyond them to the real-world applications, and they may amaze you.

Uddhav Thackeray wins trust vote with 169 ayes

first_imgThe Maharashtra Vikas Aghadi (MVA) government, led by Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray, sailed through the floor test in the Maharashtra Assembly on Saturday.While the Opposition BJP walked out during the voting citing procedural irregularities, 169 MLAs of the Shiv Sena, the NCP and the Congress, along with smaller parties and Independents voted in favour of the government in the 288-member House. Four MLAs abstained.Mr. Thackeray, who is not a member of either the Legislative Assembly or the Council, did not vote.As per Supreme Court ordersReferring to the Supreme Court order which had asked that the trust vote be conducted via open voting and also broadcast live, pro tem speaker Dilip Walse-Patil directed the House to ensure open voting process.Former Chief Minister and Congress leader Ashok Chavan moved the motion of confidence and it was seconded by NCP MLAs Nawab Malik, Jayant Patil and the Sena’s Sunil Prabhu.The 105 BJP MLAs staged a walkout before the head count, with former Chief Minister and legislative party leader Devendra Fadnavis citing the “unlawful manner” in which the ministers were sworn in and the House session convened. Mr. Fadnavis said, “The last session adjourned sine die with the national anthem. So the new session has to start again with the national anthem which is not done.”Mr. Walse-Patil replied that the current session was part of the last session and the Governor’s decision to call the session was in accordance with parliamentary laws.Mr. Fadnavis also claimed that the change in pro tem Speaker from the BJP’s Kalidas Kolambakar to Mr. Walse-Patil was not as per the procedure and that the swearing-in of Mr. Thackeray and his Cabinet did not follow procedure with the Ministers taking oath in the name of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj, Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar and Mahatma Phule.Mr. Walse-Patil said the matter did not come under the jurisdiction of the Assembly.“The swearing-in ceremony took place at outside. It is the duty of Governor to look into. So I am not authority to talk about that,” he said.After this, Mr. Thackeray introduced his cabinet colleagues to the House amid sloganeering from the BJP MLAs, who later walked out of the Assembly.The break-up of numbers included 56 from the Sena, 53 from the NCP as Mr. Walse-Patil was in the chair, and 44 from the Congress. Among the others who supported the government were three MLAs from the Bahujan Vikas Aghadi (BVA), two each from Prahar and Samajwadi Party (SP), one each from the Swabhimani Paksha and Peasants and Workers Party (PWP).The independents who supported the government were Rajendra Patil-Yadravkar, Shankarrao Gadakh, Manjula Gavit, Ashish Jaiswal, Narendra Bhondewar, Kishor Jogewar, Sanjay Shinde. Of the four MLAs who abstained, two were from the AIMIM and one each from Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) and Communist Party of India (Marxist).Thanking the MLAs of the three parties and the people, Mr. Thackeray said his government would work to bring about a State envisioned by the great kings, saints and social workers.last_img read more
