Appeals court overturns conviction of 'Making a Murderer' inmate

Appeals court overturns conviction of 'Making a Murderer' inmate A three-judge panel of the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals in Chicago ruled 2-1 to uphold a federal judge's ruling last year that overturned Dassey's conviction for a 2005 murder. Magistrate Judge William Duffin had ruled in August that the conviction was based on a coerced confession that Dassey, now 27, gave as a 16-year-old with a learning disability. Duffin ordered Dassey freed in November, but his release was halted while Wisconsin authorities appealed the decision.

U.S. top court rebuffs men convicted in notorious Washington murder

U.S. top court rebuffs men convicted in notorious Washington murder The U.S. Supreme Court on Thursday refused to overturn the convictions of seven men in a notorious 1984 gang murder of a woman in a Washington neighborhood not far from the U.S. Capitol even though prosecutors had concealed evidence in the case. The justices, in a 6-2 ruling, said the evidence withheld by the prosecution at the time of the trial, which the men claimed would have cast doubt on their guilt in the murder of Catherine Fuller, was not material to the eventual jury verdict. The case has stayed the public eye not only because of the grisly nature of the murder that occurred during a period of high crime in the U.S. capital city in the 1980s but also because of the Supreme Court's decision to scrutinize the process that led to the convictions.


Man invents tsunami sensor, internet obsesses over his dog

Man invents tsunami sensor, internet obsesses over his dog This pensive dog upstaged his owner and wasn't even aware of it. SEE ALSO: Friendly island doggo followed a street view mapper and photobombed all his shots Inventor Jerry Paros posed for a photograph for an article in the publication Nature about his invention — an ultra precise quartz sensor that could contribute to an early-warning system designed to detect shifts in the sea floor that cause tsunamis. Tsunamis are caused primarily by earthquakes that occur in the seafloor, since rapid shifts in elevation can generate waves that cross oceans in a matter of several hours. In 2011, a massive tsunami hit northern Japan following a magnitude 9.0 earthquake off the coast, resulting in the meltdown of nuclear reactors at the Fukashima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant. The article and the photograph were shared on Nature's Twitter page.  Meet the man hoping to transform the way we gather data from the seafloor to detect the next big earthquake: https://t.co/GmICfBMSDR pic.twitter.com/zvRlwpyADX — Nature News&Comment (@NatureNews) June 21, 2017 While many found the article interesting, most people were busy obsessing over Paros' photobombing canine companion.

"This wide market acceptance endorsed the 737 MAX 10 as the industry's most efficient and profitable single-aisle airplane," Boeing said in a statement.


Former Apple engineer Chris Lattner leaves Tesla just six months after starting

Former Apple engineer Chris Lattner leaves Tesla just six months after starting

Tesla has always been rather aggressive about poaching talented engineers from Apple. This past January, though, Tesla kicked things up a notch when it hired Chris Lattner to head up the company's Autopilot Software division. Though not a household name, Lattner was a senior Apple engineer who helped spearhead the development of Swift in addition to overseeing Apple's Xcode team. Lattner's departure at the time was viewed as a significant loss for Apple and a huge boon for Tesla.

Not six months later, Lattner's time at Tesla has come to an end for rather murky reasons. In a tweet published yesterday evening, Lattner relayed that Tesla wasn't a good fit for him while adding that he's now open to exploring engineering positions at other companies.

https://twitter.com/clattner_llvm/status/877341760812232704

With Lattner now out the door, Tesla has brought on deep learning expert Andrej Karpathy to leave the company's Autopilot efforts, as initially reported by TechCrunch.

Tesla has hired deep learning and computer vision expert Andrej Karpathy in a key Autopilot role. Karpathy most recently held a role as a researcher at OpenAI, the artificial intelligence nonprofit backed by Elon Musk. He has an extensive background in AI-related fields, having completed a PhD at Stanford University in computer vision.

Karpathy also created one of the original, and most respected, deep learning courses taught at Stanford, and his dissertation work focused on creating a system by which a neural network could identify multiple discrete and specific items within an image, label them using natural language and report to a user.

Notably, Karpathy's LinkedIn profile reveals that he also spent nearly a year as an intern working on Deep Learning projects for DeepMind, the UK-based artificial intelligence company that Google ultimately acquired in 2014.

Pentagon chief blasts N.Korea over US student who died

Pentagon chief blasts N.Korea over US student who died North Korea's treatment of an American student who died after being released from detention in a coma was inhuman and US patience with Pyongyang is running out, Pentagon chief Jim Mattis said Wednesday. Otto Warmbier, 22, suffered severe brain damage in North Korea and died on Monday following 18 months of captivity in North Korea after he was sentenced to hard labor for stealing a political poster from a hotel. "To see a young man go over there healthy and, (after) a minor act of mischief, come home dead basically... this goes beyond any kind of understanding of law and order, of humanity, of responsibility towards any human being," Mattis said.
