IEEE, a science publisher bans Huawei but mentions the small impact on members

IEEE bans Huawei, which follows a new restriction of trade. It shocked the whole academic circles in the United States. IEEE confirms that the impact will be very less on the member’s of Huawei. However, it is very tough to pacify those members who thought that it is one of the biggest platforms for professors and scientist to research at a world-class level.

The headquarters of IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers) in New York blocked all the employees of Huawei to review or edit anything for its process of peer-review. There was a screenshot of a mail which was sent to the editors. It was also distributed among the Chinese media.

Later the organization gave confirmation about the ban on Wednesday. It says:

“complies with U.S. government regulations which restrict the ability of the listed Huawei companies and their employees to participate in certain activities that are not generally open to the public. This includes certain aspects of the publishing peer review and editorial process.”

In the mid of May, the commerce department of security and industry said that Huawei and its associates are stopping the other firms of the U.S. to sell technologies to Huawei according to the “entity list”. They are doing these without having any government permission.

It is not clear that what is making peer reviews at the Institute of electrical and electronics engineers a tech export. However, the association of science declared on the mail to the editors that breaking the rule “may have severe legal implications.”  They have also said that the seriousness of this matter is also very high.

IEEE has declared themselves as a “global” and “non-political” organization who has a motto of “foster technological innovation and excellence for the benefit of humanity.”

After removing all the Huawei scientists from researching, the organization confirmed that there will be very less impact on the worldwide members of it. They also added that the employees can easily take part in other functions as members. They can also submit publication papers, access the IEEE digital library and can attend any award functions.

As the standard-setting body members, they can also cast votes, attend and submit proposals for public discussion on standard development meetings.

Few Chinese members also criticized IEEE decisions. They also took a room to interfere in politics with the help of academic collaboration. Zhang Haixia (Professor of School of Electronics and Computer, Peking University, China) announced that she is quitting the organization.

The organization (IEEE) took a freeze of the adds led by Huawei to an increasing list of global organizations and companies. These organizations are merging with the Chinese telecom and smartphone giant to get a response to the trading blacklist. Google has blocked the services of android. FedEx took a diversion from the Huawei packages. Intel, Qualcomm, and ARM have also broken all the deals of Huawei.

American Airlines to now offer satellite Wi-Fi to their entire mainline fleet

If you are looking to fly in American Airlines in recent time, then there is some good news for you. You can enjoy internet access in American Airlines. The company has finally finished deploying their stellate based internet access to their entire fleet of 700 aircraft which mainly fly to all the domestic routes.

It totally depends on where you are going that your connection will be dependent on. You will either get ViaSat Ka connection Gogo 2Ku. American deployed satellite broadband to all the wide body aircraft which is about a year early.

The Airlines will also be installing some power outlets in all the seats along with a tablet holder to most narrow-body aircraft.

The flyers will have to pay in the flight to enjoy Wi-Fi on the flight. America does offer free Apple Music streaming. There are some airlines which give people free messaging service in their domestic flights. Delta is one of the companies who are testing free Wi-Fi. It is still not sure how the free Wi-Fi will work, but when it is installed, it will surely come in handy for all the flyers.

The Neural Network detects the if a photo has been photoshopped or not

Photoshop is one of the most common video editing software available now for professionals. It is a very common practice that people have to manipulate pictures and tweak up faces. Researchers from Berkeley and Adobe have come up with an absolutely new tool with help of which people will get to understand if the images are Photo shopped or not. This tool can tell how the images have been photo shopped and what are the ways that they can simply undo it.

It is very important to understand that this tool will be working only for Photoshop and no other editing application. A tool which will help to understand changes is a long way off, but the tool which has been designed for Photoshop is very smart.

One of the Researchers called Alexei Efros who was just part of the AI Robotics event has begun to assume that a lot of images are manipulated with the help of Photoshop application and for her, the best place to work now is to look for manipulations possible with this tool.

In a test, a set of portrait images was taken and slight manipulations were done to it. Some of the changes made were movement done to the eye or emphasize the smile a bit more. Then both the original and edited versions were fed to the system so that the tool is able to distinguish between both of them.

“We live in a world where it’s becoming harder to trust the digital information we consume,” said Adobe’s Richard Zhang, who worked on the project, “and I look forward to further exploring this area of research.”

There is a paper available which people can read to gather more information about the project.

Project xCloud was bested by Google Stadia in the tests of latency

At an event of E3 in the year 2019, Microsoft was giving a chance to try out the “Project xCloud.” It is a service of game streaming which can give a tough competition with Google Stadia. The location of the server is almost 400 miles away. But the shocking fact is that you can easily access the games like Halo 5: Guardians and War 4. It has the capability to run those two games on 60 frames per seconds if you connect an android phone as a controller.

According to a report of Ars Technica, xCloud only can show an input delay of 67 milliseconds. But on Stadia it was like 166 Ms. But if you want to play the Halo 5 game on a console, you can get an input lag of 63 ms.

According to a Google stadia:

“ In our video tests, the time between tapping the A button and seeing a response on the smartphone screen took sixteen frames of a 240 FPS video or 67 ms across three subsequent tests. That’s almost imperceptibly slower than the 63 ms input latency Digital Foundry measured on the Xbox One version of Halo 5 in 2017… Testing latency of a wired… Stadia demonstration at March’s Game Developers Conference, Digital Foundry found total latency of 166 ms, compared to a low of 100 ms on a 60 FPS PC. “

But we have to know that the test was conducted on less than ideal testing conditions. But it almost has a reduction in the input delay. If you compare that to the previous testing of Stadia, the input lag is reduced; xCloud can easily improve its base.

The same fact is applicable to Stadia. As it was uncovered in March, Google was trying to keep the input delays low. Right now, we are just waiting for the streaming game to start. We should know the fact that Stadia will be live in Founder’s Edition subscribers and the xCloud will be available for a public trial.
