zoom Cruise ship owner Viking Cruises unveiled plans for a liquid hydrogen-fuelled cruise ship in an effort to develop the world’s first cruise ship with zero-emission technology.Serge Fossati, project manager at the shipping company, presented the plans at the Norwegian Maritime Authority’s Safety at Sea Conference in Haugesund.To feature a length of around 230 metres, the cruise ship would be able to accommodate more than 900 passengers and a crew of 500.“This is a world sensation. Very exciting. If they pull this off, a distribution network may be established, which will enable others as well to use hydrogen as fuel, and could contribute to a zero-emission shipping industry,” Olav Akselsen, Director General of Shipping and Navigation, said.Viking Cruises envisions constructing a ship based on the same design as their seagoing cruise ships, such as the recently delivered Viking Sun. Additionally, the shipping company informed that the hydrogen ship would be registered in the Norwegian Ship Registers (NIS) if it is realised, and is already in dialogue with the Norwegian Maritime Authority.“As a Norwegian and with Norwegian ships, we want to lead the way to zero-emission ships through fuel cell technology. The road to that point is still long, but here at Viking we want to be ahead of the game,” Torstein Hagen, Chairman of Viking Cruises, said.So far, liquid hydrogen has not been used as marine fuel. One of the technical challenges is to maintain the fuel at minus 253 degrees to keep it from evaporating. A fuel cell will convert the hydrogen to electricity for propulsion and electric power on board.At present, liquid hydrogen is not produced on a large scale in Europe, but Fossati explained that Viking Cruises is in dialogue with Statoil in order to find a solution based on a Norwegian refinery. It also emerged that the shipping company wants to use Norwegian suppliers for the project, as far as possible. Several tender ships to carry the fuel to the cruise ship are also part of the project, according to the Norwegian Maritime Authority.

Dan Cohen AUTHOR Defense spending on contracts and payroll accounted for 8.5 percent of Virginia’s gross domestic product, making it the top ranked state by that metric in fiscal 2016. Virginia was followed by Hawaii (7.6 percent), Alaska (5.5 percent), Maryland (5.2 percent) and Alabama (5.2 percent) in the ranking of states by defense spending as a portion of their economies. On average, defense spending accounted for 2.2 percent of all states’ GDP in FY 2016. Virginia also ranked highly in absolute terms for attracting defense dollars, coming in second, with $42.7 billion, behind California, at $48.8 billion; Texas came in third for total defense spending with $33.3 billion.Almost 60 percent of total defense spending, $378.5 billion, went to 10 states.Those rankings are included in the latest analysis of defense spending by state prepared by the Office of Economic Adjustment. By highlighting states’ reliance on military installations and contractors, the report can be used “to assess potential exposure to fluctuations in defense spending and to target assistance to create more resilient communities and companies,” according to its executive summary. The listing for each state shows the top defense contractors and ranks the top 10 counties by contract spending, personnel spending, and number of active-duty and civilian personnel.Two states, California and Connecticut, account for half of the top 10 counties for attracting defense contract spending:Fairfax County, Va. — $9.9 billionSan Diego County, Calif. — $8.4 billionLos Angeles County, Calif. — $6.2 billionMadison County, Ala. — $5.4 billionSanta Clara County, Calif. — $5.3 billionLouis County, Mo. — $5.2 billionKing County, Wash. — $5.1 billionNew London County, Conn. — $4.8 billionFairfield County, Conn. — $4.4 billionOrange County, Fla. — $4.0 billion Photo by Steve Earley
Motorola Moto G7 £269 Motorola G7 vs. G7 Plus: What’s the difference? 64GB Motorola has a long, rich history of big wins in the mobile phone space, from the first cell phone call, to the iconic Motorola Razr and what will be Verizon’s first 5G phone. While the company has struggled to make a splash in the modern phone era — its magnetic Moto Mods failed to connect in a meaningful way — the Moto G family has carved out an important space as the king of budget phones. The Moto G has been CNET’s top budget pick year after year. The Moto G7 Power has a 6.2-inch screen and 5,000-mAh battery. Sarah Tew/CNET The Moto G7 is the latest casualty of rising phone prices. While still “cheap,” its price jumps up $50 to $299 from $249, a 20 percent hike from 2018 to 2019. The increase underscores that phones are getting more expensive to own across all categories, not just the most premium models, as component costs rise and slow sales hit dominant brands such as iPhone and Samsung. Here’s how the four new Moto G7 phones break down. Check out our specs chart for a quick breakdown, as well as our in-depth comparison story — Motorola Moto G7 vs. G7 Play, G7 Power and G7 Plus — for more details.

The Moto G7, Moto G7 Plus, Moto G7 Power and Moto G7 Play are all variations on a theme. Read CNET’s in-depth review of the Moto G7.They share backbone specs like full-screen faces with slim bezels, Android Pie, a headphone jack and external storage up to 256GB. From there, the phones take on subtle differences. For example, the Moto G7 Plus — which won’t sell in the US — has a more powerful processor and a big camera upgrade, while the Moto G7 Power gets its character from its extra-large battery. Back This story originally published at 5 a.m. PT. So retro: Designing the original Motorola Razr 4K Android 9.0 Mentioned Above Motorola Moto G7 (ceramic white) USB-C 12-megapixel 300 euros, converts to about $340 157 x 75.3 x 8.3 mm 3,000-mAh Yes 1,080p See It 3GB 12-megapixel 157 x 75.3 x 8 mm Back Moto G7: The standard bearer ($299) This is the step up we expected in 2019’s G7 phone. The most well rounded of Moto’s new G7s for the US, this looks and feels more luxe than you’d expect for a $300 (£239) device. There’s glass on the front and back, a small teardrop-shaped notch and ultrathin bezels all around. Those slimmer margins mean the 6.2-inch display feels expansive without the phone being a behemoth. The dual 12-megapixel/5-megapixel camera setup makes depth-sensing portrait photos possible using that second lens (the G7 Power and play have that too, using software only). You also get the same “auto smile capture” mode as the G7 Plus, for both sets of lenses. An 1.8GHz octacore Snapdragon 632 chipset helps keep tasks moving along, so everything felt zippy in the brief time I had with the phone. As a bonus, there’s water resistance up to IP154 and 64GB of onboard storage to fill up with your photos, videos and apps. The G7 Power’s 5,000mAh battery promises over two days of battery life. Sarah Tew/CNET Moto G7 Power: The battery beast ($249) The name says it all. The Moto G7 Power’s 5,000-mAh battery takes center stage on this device, promising 2.5 days of battery life on a single charge. TurboPower charging means you can effectively top up the battery to give you 9 additional hours of use in just 15 minutes of charge. It’ll cost £179 in the UK. The splashproof G7 Power has a wide eyebrow-style notch on its 6.2-inch screen, but you can tell by holding it that the body is more rudimentary than the Moto G7. A finish that Motorola calls “glass polymer” looks like glass, but is really made out of plastic. Hey, on the plus side, it’ll be harder to break. From a camera perspective, the Moto G7 Power has a single 12-megapixel rear camera and an 8-megapixel front-facing shooter. Portrait-style photos that blur the background are a go, but the phone uses software, rather than two lenses, to achieve the effect. It may be the cheapest of the G7 phones, but the Moto G7 Play has a 13-megapixel camera and a fingerprint reader all the same. Sarah Tew/CNET Moto G7 Play: The biggest cost saver ($199) The smallest and most compact Moto G7, the G7 Play was designed to bring you the essentials at a reasonable rate. There’s nothing fancy or noteworthy here, but Motorola still manages to slot in specs that suggest decent performance for the value buy, on paper at least. We won’t know for sure until we get a chance to review the phones. This G7 Play has a 5.7-inch screen (with a wide notch), a splashproof, plastic body with a soft-touch grip, a 13-megapixel rear camera and a decent 3,000-mAh battery. Like the G7 and G7 Power, the modest G7 Play still comes with Android 9 Pie, a headset jack and rear fingerprint reader, and a Snapdragon 632 chipset. That processor alone makes the G7 Play 110 percent faster than the G6 Play, according to Motorola’s claims. It’ll be £149 in the UK. It comes with a more humble 32GB of baked-in storage and just 2GB of RAM. This isn’t a phone meant for intensive gaming or lightning-quick photo processing. But rest assured that you’ll be able to store up to 256GB more files than the phone comes with, thanks to the expandable storage slot on every Moto G7 phone. Moto G7 Plus: The budget ‘splurge’ (£269) The £269 G7 Plus won’t make it to the US, but the most advanced of Motorola’s G7 crop holds the most on-paper appeal. It shares many of the Moto G7’s core specs, like a 6.2-inch FHD+ screen, teardrop notch and Gorilla Glass backing. But it also adds a huge camera upgrade — a 16-megapixel/5-megapixel dual camera setup with optical image stabilization (OIS) — and a 12-megapixel front-facing camera for selfies. It also has a more powerful processor — Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 instead of Snapdragon 632 — and is water resistant at a rating of IP54 (protected from limited dust and spraying water from any direction). Extras include red and indigo colors, stereo speakers tuned by Dolby and the fastest Turbo Power charging, which gets you 12 hours of juice in 15 minutes. The G7 Plus includes high-resolution zoom (all the G7s do), and an “auto smile capture” mode for the rear and selfie cameras, which will automatically take a photo with up to five people in the frame, once everyone smiles and stops moving around.

Even a company as committed to the internal-combustion engine as Ferrari can see the writing on the wall, and we’re about to see a big shift in the company’s offerings as we enter the next decade.Ferrari’s next-generation hybrid will be unveiled this year, Automotive News reports, citing comments made by Ferrari CEO Louis Camilleri during its latest quarterly earnings call. It won’t debut at the Geneva Motor Show in March, but rather at a different event later in the year. It’ll make its way to buyers in early 2020.The unnamed hybrid supercar will sport the automaker’s second-generation hybrid system. The first generation found use in Formula One, in addition to Ferrari’s own LaFerrari hybrid hypercar. Unlike the V12-toting LaFerrari, though, this new car will reportedly make do with a V8, and it’s believed to make more power than the 710-horsepower 488 Pista. Furthermore, Ferrari’s CEO said on the call that 60 percent of the automaker’s lineup will carry hybrid variants by 2022.2022 is going to be a very important turning point for Ferrari. Not only will it offer a number of hybrids at that point, it’ll be the earliest point at which Ferrari unveils its first battery-electric supercar. Camilleri didn’t commit to any specific date, saying only that it would arrive after 2022.But Ferrari isn’t done with standalone internal-combustion cars by any measure. Two limited-edition models, the Monza SP1 and SP2, will start reaching customers in the fourth quarter of 2019. There’s also the matter of the “Purosangue,” the current name for Ferrari’s first SUV, which will be available in both gas-only and hybrid variants. 0 Preview • 2018 Ferrari 812 Superfast: Super in more ways than one Exotic Cars Hybrids Electric Cars Future Cars Performance Cars 2020 Hyundai Palisade review: Posh enough to make Genesis jealous More From Roadshow 2020 BMW M340i review: A dash of M makes everything better Tags 75 Photos Ferrari’s Monza SP1 and SP2 don’t need no stinkin’ windshields 2020 Kia Telluride review: Kia’s new SUV has big style and bigger value Share your voice Ferrari More about 2018 Ferrari 812 Superfast Post a comment Ferrari
Kapil Sharma, Krushna AbhishekSony TVThe Kapil Sharma Show never fails to entertain its viewers and the upcoming episode will be filled with comedy.It will be graced by popular playback singers – Alka Yagnik, Himesh Reshammiya and Javed Ali – the judges of the reality show Super Singer as well as contestants of the show such as, Thanu Khan, Mohammed Fazil, Nistha Sharma, Urgen Tsomuand Guntas along with the captains of the show Salman Ali, Nitin Kumar, Sachin Valmiki and Jyotica Tangri.According to a report in Times Now, a six-year-old, Thanu Khan will be seen scolding Kapil on The Kapil Sharma Show because of a very cute reason that will leave viewers in splits.The report said that the young contestant before walking towards the stage for his performance left a fruit (litchi) with Kapil. However, right before his performance, the kid asked the comedian about his fruit’s whereabouts and Kapil answered that he ate it. Realising the same, young kid scolded the comedian in the most adorable way.”I gave Kapil ji my fruit to hold till the time I perform, but he took the chance and ate it while I was performing. I expressed my disappointment when he ate my litchi but as nice he is with his comedy, he offered me all the fruits on the table,” Thanu Khan said, as reported by the web portal.In his personal life, Kapil is on his way to becoming a father. Although the ace comedian hasn’t made any official announcement about the same, reports are doing the rounds that his pregnant wife Ginni Chatrath is in her first trimester.Apparently, ever since Kapil learnt about Ginni’s pregnancy, he has reportedly made a lot of changes in his busy shoot schedule to be with his wife. Initially, Kapil used to quickly wind up for the day from shoot and rush home to take care of Ginni. But now, Ginni has shifted to Amritsar, Punjab, and with her family. Kapil, who is in Mumbai busy shooting for The Kapil Sharma Show, is flying to and fro whenever he gets time from his busy schedule.
Introduced by Apple, CoreML is a machine learning framework that powers the iOS app developers to integrate machine learning technology into their apps. It supports natural language processing (NLP), image analysis, and various other conventional models to provide a top-notch on-device performance with minimal memory footprint and power consumption. This article is an extract taken from the book Machine Learning with Core ML written by Joshua Newnham. In this article, you will get to know the basics of what CoreML is and its typical workflow. With the release of iOS 11 and Core ML, performing inference is just a matter of a few lines of code. Prior to iOS 11, inference was possible, but it required some work to take a pre-trained model and port it across using an existing framework such as Accelerate or metal performance shaders (MPSes). Accelerate and MPSes are still used under the hood by Core ML, but Core ML takes care of deciding which underlying framework your model should use (Accelerate using the CPU for memory-heavy tasks and MPSes using the GPU for compute-heavy tasks). It also takes care of abstracting a lot of the details away; this layer of abstraction is shown in the following diagram: There are additional layers too; iOS 11 has introduced and extended domain-specific layers that further abstract a lot of the common tasks you may use when working with image and text data, such as face detection, object tracking, language translation, and named entity recognition (NER). These domain-specific layers are encapsulated in the Vision and natural language processing (NLP) frameworks; we won’t be going into any details of these frameworks here, but you will get a chance to use them in later chapters: It’s worth noting that these layers are not mutually exclusive and it is common to find yourself using them together, especially the domain-specific frameworks that provide useful preprocessing methods we can use to prepare our data before sending to a Core ML model. So what exactly is Core ML? You can think of Core ML as a suite of tools used to facilitate the process of bringing ML models to iOS and wrapping them in a standard interface so that you can easily access and make use of them in your code. Let’s now take a closer look at the typical workflow when working with Core ML. CoreML Workflow As described previously, the two main tasks of a ML workflow consist of training and inference. Training involves obtaining and preparing the data, defining the model, and then the real training. Once your model has achieved satisfactory results during training and is able to perform adequate predictions (including on data it hasn’t seen before), your model can then be deployed and used for inference using data outside of the training set. Core ML provides a suite of tools to facilitate getting a trained model into iOS, one being the Python packaged released called Core ML Tools; it is used to take a model (consisting of the architecture and weights) from one of the many popular packages and exporting a .mlmodel file, which can then be imported into your Xcode project. Once imported, Xcode will generate an interface for the model, making it easily accessible via code you are familiar with. Finally, when you build your app, the model is further optimized and packaged up within your application. A summary of the process of generating the model is shown in the following diagram: The previous diagram illustrates the process of creating the .mlmodel;, either using an existing model from one of the supported frameworks, or by training it from scratch. Core ML Tools supports most of the frameworks, either internal or as third party plug-ins, including Keras, Turi, Caffe, scikit-learn, LibSVN, and XGBoost frameworks. Apple has also made this package open source and modular for easy adaption for other frameworks or by yourself. The process of importing the model is illustrated in this diagram: In addition; there are frameworks with tighter integration with Core ML that handle generating the Core ML model such as Turi Create, IBM Watson Services for Core ML, and Create ML. We will be introducing Create ML in chapter 10; for those interesting in learning more about Turi Create and IBM Watson Services for Core ML then please refer to the official webpages via the following links: Turi Create; https://github.com/apple/turicreate IBM Watson Services for Core ML; https://developer.apple.com/ibm/ Once the model is imported, as mentioned previously, Xcode generates an interface that wraps the model, model inputs, and outputs. Thus, in this post, we learned about the workflow of training and how to import a model. If you’ve enjoyed this post, head over to the book Machine Learning with Core ML to delve into the details of what this model is and what Core ML currently supports.
