CES 2018 is a rocking way to begin the year, especially if you are an engineer. Held from January 9 to 12 in Las Vegas, the show provides a harbinger of what's to come in technology, devices, and trends.This year it'll be robots, self-driving cars, battery-powered cars, and virtual reality. The buzzword “artificial intelligence,” will be thrown around when it comes to interaction and automation.
Linux creator Linus Torvalds previously loved Intel and the x86 architecture. The architecture has an established infrastructure, programs just run and unlike ARM, code doesn’t need to be tweaked to devices. But critical x86 vulnerabilities that allow hackers to steal data from chip memory has Torvalds fuming at Intel, and telling the Linux community to seriously consider ARM architecture.
Holly Griffith lives Star Wars. Toys from the famous movies litter her desk, and she wears R2D2 shoes. She works at NASA as a safety engineer for the Life Support Systems for Orion, which is closest thing to living a Star Wars life on Planet Earth. Her commitment to Star Wars extends to also being a role model and encouraging more women to take on STEM careers. Griffith studied mechanical engineering at McNeese State University, where she was also vice president of the ASME chapter.
The only thing going well for Intel are server chips. They are transitioning to AI chips with products from Nervana/integrated Altera FPGAs this year. But it's still hard to read Intel with its IoT and PC challenges ahead.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
