IPhone 8 will be able to scan faces in "millionths of a second"

Leaked images revealed that Apple's iPhone 8 comes with a 3D camera that is rumoured to be able to scan users' faces in "millionths of a second".

BUCHAREST, 24 aug — Sputnik. A leaked image shows the 3D camera for the Apple's upcoming iPhone 8, which is rumoured to have a scanner that can unlock the phone with facial recognition, according to telegraph.co.uk.

The iPhone 8's 3D scanner could also be used for the augmented reality applications.

As reported by the Korean Herald newspaper, the iPhone 8's new facial recognition software has 3D sensors that are able to scan users in "millionths of a second", a speed that would make it capable of replacing the Touch ID fingerprint scanner.

Therefore, an infrared scanner will be able to unlock the phone using facial recognition. The technology, dubbed Pearl ID, could also be used to log in to apps and verify Apple Pay transactions.

It is also reported that the new iPhone could use facial recognition to tell when owners are looking at it, so that notification sounds can be muted with a glance.

The Spanish capital will have a uniquely English feel to it as tens of thousands of football fans travel to the city for the game inside Atletico Madrid's Wanda Metropolitano Stadium.

More than 80,000 fans are expected to make the trip to Spain for the match despite just 34,000 tickets being collectively allocated to both sides. The venue for the final is Atletico Madrid's 67,000 capacity Wanda Metropolitano Stadium.

The game will kick off at 9pm local time, or 8pm in the UK. For viewers on the east coast of the United States, that means a kick-off time of 3pm.

​It is safe to say that you won't need an umbrella with temperatures expected to soar to 33C (92F) on the afternoon of the game, before cooling to around 28C (82F) for kick-off.

Problems at Facebook - Reported Down in Parts of US, EU

33
The US company Facebook, which also owns Instagram, is one of the biggest social media platforms.

BUCHAREST, 13 March - Sputnik. According to the website Downdetector, which tracks the work of popular Internet resources, users in several countries reported that they were experiencing trouble with the functioning of the social media platform. 

"Problems in the work of Facebook are observed from 11:56 on the time of the East Coast of the USA”, the report says.

Most reported problems:

  • Newsfeed (35%)
  • Log in (34%)
  • Total blackout (30%)

The majority of reports regarding Facebook not working come from users in the north-eastern US, the Philippines, Europe, including the United Kingdom and Netherlands, as well as some Latin American countries, such as Brazil and Peru.

More than an hour after users began experiencing problems, a Facebook spokesperson confirmed that some people are "currently having trouble accessing the Facebook family of apps". The spokesperson failed to give an explanation for the global outage. 

Twitterians were quick to react to the developments.

#FacebookDown began trending on Twitter globally as frustrated netizens vented their fury at being denied access to their virtual lives.

Instagram, which is owned by Facebook, suffered similar unexplained major outages in January this year, and Novemberand October last year. As usual, users flocked to the “old reliable” Twitter to occupy their time until the world is restored to its natural order.

Bucureștiul, pe primul loc în UE la costurile poluării

0
(reînnoit 14:01 21.10.2020)
Capitala României este pe primul loc în Uniunea Europeană la costurile pe care le presupune poluarea.

BRUXELLES, 21 oct - Sputnik. Un raport publicat astăzi evaluează costurile morţii premature, îngrijirii şi pierderii zilelor lucrătoare în 432 de oraşe europene, ajungând la concluzia că poluarea aerului costă 166 de miliarde de euro pe an în Europa.

La nivelul UE, Bucureștiul ocupă un prim loc rușinos în acest sens, cu costuri de 6.3 miliarde de euro, fiind urmată de Berlin, cu 5.2 miliarde de euro şi Varşovia (4.2 miliarde de euro).

În schimb, Londra ocupă primul loc (11.4 miliarde de euro) la nivelul continentului european.

Acest raport, realizat de firma de cercetare şi consultanţă CE Delft cu sediul la Bruxelles pentru Alianţa Europeană pentru Sănătate Publică (EPHA), a analizat situaţia din 432 de oraşe din cele 27 de ţări ale Uniunii Europene, dar şi din Marea Britanie, Norvegia şi Elveţia.

Studiul compară cei trei poluanţi principali ai aerului – particule, dioxid de azot şi ozon -, precum şi costurile sociale ale acestora, adică costurile directe legate de îngrijiri şi indirecte, precum reducerea speranţei de viaţă sau boli precum bronşita cronică severă.

Poluarea aerului în oraşe este cauzată de factori multipli: transportul, încălzirea locuinţelor sau activităţile industriale şi agricole. Deşi este dificil să se evalueze cu exactitate ponderea fiecărui factor, raportul a analizat cu precădere influenţa transportului şi a estimat că o creştere cu 1% a numărului de maşini dintr-un oraş creşte costurile sociale cu aproape 0.5%.

Poluarea aerului este responsabilă pentru decesul prematur a 480.000 de persoane în Europa, potrivit Agenţiei Europene de Mediu (AEM).
