MIT computer system generates the right robot for the job

Choosing the right shape is vital for a robot’s ability to traverse a particular terrain, but it is impossible to build and test every potential form. Now, however, an MIT system could solve that problem by simulating designs and working out which is the best fit.

The computer system, known as RoboGrammar, was developed by a team led by Allan Zhao at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

First, the user tells the system what parts are available, such as wheels and joints, before telling it what terrain the robot needs to navigate. RoboGrammar does the rest, generating an optimised structure and control programme for the robot.

The advance could inject computer-aided creativity into the field, a research announcement claimed.

“Robot design is

Joe Biden’s Team Hid A Job Advert Within The Source Code Of Their Transition Website

President-elect Joe Biden’s team has hidden a secret job advert within the source code of their website, which has now been found by Internet sleuths.

Hiding fun easter eggs in the back-end of websites is almost as old as html itself. Job adverts have been hidden within code on sites for any developer to see, completely hidden from the average user so uncurious they’ve probably never even tried out the inspect element tool, except that one time when they did it accidentally, panicked, and immediately called IT.

Some cool ones in the past have been by Apple and The Guardian.

In a recent hidden easter egg, Google hid a text adventure game within Chrome’s development console. No stranger to hiding fun games to play around with (it once hid a version of Mario Kart within Google Maps), the tech giant hid the new retro adventure within a specific

The secret advert was spotted by “The Jester,” an anonymous “hacktivist” who was listed by Time magazine as one of the most influential people on the internet in 2015.

“NICE!!! In the rendered source code of president-elect @joebiden’s https://buildbackbetter.gov website,” the Jester wrote in a Twitter post highlighting the section of code that contains the advert.

“This harkens back to the likes of the UK’s MI5 and MI6 who I believe used to recruit the type of people they were looking for by publishing obscure crossword and puzzle competitions in newspapers,” the hacktivist said.

The sector saw upward month-over-month recovery for job listings on Naukri.com, peaking in September for both hardware (63%) and software roles (20%).

Programming club preps students as job candidates in competitive market

NOVEMBER 17, 2020 — A UTSA club is preparing students to contend for jobs in the competitive tech industry.

The International Collegiate Programming Contest club is part of UTSA’s Association for Computing Machinery chapter. The International Collegiate Programming Contest is a global programming competition. Thousands of three-person teams compete by solving anywhere from eight to 12 algorithm problems of varying difficulty.

Students in the programming contest club gain experience in all fields of technology and computing during regular meetings and ICPC competitions.

In November the club hosted the first UTSA-only programming contest. Seven teams solved as many algorithm and data structure problems as they could during an intense two-hour competition. Team iterators, a mix of computer engineering and computer science students, won first place. 


“It’s a great way to involve different departments that all have a shared interest in using code to solve problems.”

Alek Minassian’s father testifies in van attack trial his son was about to start a good computer job

He paused in his testimony as he became emotional.

He said he watched video of his son pulling his hand out of his pocket and pointing it at police, pretending he had a gun.

“I was in a state of shock,” he said. “How is this even possible?”

He testified there was no hint of his son being capable of it.

“I’ve seen no history of violence. He is, if anything, he’s always been characterized as a gentle person.”

Minassian’s father said his son had problems from a young age because of odd behaviours. He was in a special education program throughout his schooling. In some subjects, such as math, he was ahead of his peers but in other he was far behind.

Social interaction, he said, “was one of the greatest challenges he had.” He did not recognize facial expressions that reveal other’s emotional state, such
