  • 2/19   Audio Memos, Voice Quality and 3D Positional Sound
    TECHNOLOGY TOPIC NEWS

    
We are pleased to announce the next launch of the vlrMemos project.
vlrMemos is an app to record voice or audio memos and to measure the quality of the voice.
The app will calculate and display in real-time acoustic parameters such as the LTAS (Long-Term Average Spectrum) and the HPR (High-Frequency Power Ratio).
When playing recordings, the application will add the calculation and the display of other parameters such as the Jitter, the Shimmer and the HNR (Harmonic to Noise Ratio).
The advanced parameters such as the CPP (Cepstral Peak Prominence) and the CPPS (Smoothed Cepstral Peak Prominence), which are reliable measures of the dysphonia, will be also calculated and displayed. Finally, the spectral parameters measuring the slowdown of the spectrum, the loss of complexity of the signal or the similarty between several channels will be calculated and displayed.
During the sound renderings, before the decompressions, personalized FIR (Finite Impulse Response) filters, generated from normalized and non normalized audiograms, will be applied to the channels in the Fourier domain (fast convolutions), for highly optimized and tailored audio outputs.
The app will be available for computers, tablets, smartphones, smartwatches and connected objects.
The app will be compatible with the body sounds, the physiological signals and the variability data.
It can use an audio codec (audio compression and decompression method). This very fast and high-quality audio codec is based on FFT (Fast Fourier Transform) and can be accelerated with the GPU support (Graphics Processing Unit), for a very low battery consumption.
This codec is quasi-lossless in energy: the energy of an uncompressed frame is almost the same as the energy of the compressed frame.
This codec can provide the audio in 3D. During the sound renderings, before the decompressions, generic or personalized HRTF (Head-Related Transfer Function) filters are applied to the channels in the Fourier domain (very fast operations), for high quality 3D positional audio outputs.
The app will be compatible with the body sounds, the physiological signals and the variability data.
Using this app, one can:
detect anomalies in the voice;
monitor the effectiveness of a treatment of the voice;
monitor the progress during a training of the voice or during a speech therapy;
record and analyze the heartbeat sounds and the lung sounds;
record and analyze the physiological signals;
Optionally, perform the sonification of the physiological signals and the variability data;
optionally, send the average values of some parameters in the form of codes of intensity and / or color (light notifications) to connected bulbs or to bridges of connected bulbs.

  • 4/19   U.S. official sees more cyber attacks on industrial control systems

    A U.S. government cyber security official warned that authorities have seen an increase in attacks that penetrate industrial control system networks over the past year, and said they are vulnerable because they are exposed to the Internet. Industrial control systems are computers that control operations of industrial processes, from energy plants and steel mills to cookie factories and breweries. “We see more and more that are gaining access to that control system layer," said Marty Edwards, who runs the Department of Homeland Security's Industrial Control Systems Cyber Emergency Response Team, or ICS-CERT.

  • 6/19   GoPro shares slide after disappointing revenue estimate

    GoPro Inc estimated fourth-quarter revenue below market expectations due to disappointing sales of its action cameras, and said it would cut 7 percent of its workforce, sending its shares into freefall. GoPro shares plunged 28 percent to $10.50 in extended trading, or less than half its 2014 IPO price of $24. The San Mateo, California-based company said it expects revenue of about $435 million for the fourth quarter, well below analysts' average estimate of $511.9 million, according to Thomson Reuters I/B/E/S. The company, which had about 1,500 employees at the end of 2015, said quarterly revenue was also hit by a price cut meant to boost demand for its Hero4 Session cameras.

  • 7/19   Samsung Electronics to produce new Qualcomm chips in blow to TSMC

    By Se Young Lee SEOUL (Reuters) - Qualcomm Inc said on Thursday Samsung Electronics Co Ltd will become the sole manufacturer of its new flagship mobile chip, a major boost for the South Korean tech giant as it vies for deals with bigger rival TSMC. The deal, which some analysts estimate is worth over $1 billion, comes as Samsung, a major Apple Inc supplier, is heading into another profit drop this year due to slowing demand for consumer electronics and components. "This is very significant because never before has Qualcomm used foundries other than TSMC to make high-end chipsets," Maybank Kim Eng analyst Warren Lau said.

  • 9/19   Samsung strikes deal to produce Qualcomm's Snapdragon 820 processor

    Samsung announced today that it's begun mass production of chips using the 2nd generation of its 14nm process, the technology that will power both the company's own Exynos 8 Octa processor and that of a major rival: Qualcomm.

  • 11/19   Asian shares skid as Brent crude plumbs 12-year lows
    TECHNOLOGY TOPIC NEWS

    By Lisa Twaronite TOKYO (Reuters) - Asian shares fell on Thursday in the wake of steep losses on Wall Street, as Brent crude oil skidded to 12-year lows amid a commodities rout that heightened fears about the global economy. "A lot of recent data has emphasized that the bottom has not quite fallen out of the global economy, but a negative feedback loop of self-perpetuating fear seems to have gripped global markets," Angus Nicholson, market analyst at IG in Melbourne, wrote in a note. Global benchmark Brent was off lows but still down 0.3 percent at $30.22, after marking a fresh 12-year low of $29.73.

    TECHNOLOGY TOPIC NEWS

    U.S. environmental officials said on Wednesday talks will continue with Volkswagen aimed at reaching an agreement on a fix for nearly 600,000 diesel vehicles that emit up to 40 times legally allowable limits. Nearly four months after the emissions scandal broke, there is no timetable for winning approval of a fix - or for starting to repair vehicles or lifting the government's ban on the sale of 2016 VW diesel models. VW Chief Executive Officer Matthias Mueller met with Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Gina McCarthy for an hour at the agency's headquarters Wednesday.

    Brent crude fell to a new 12-year low on Thursday as the prospect of more oil supplies from Iran loomed, amid gloom over a world already awash with supply and concerns about global economic growth. West Texas Intermediate (WTI) was up 43 cents at $30.91 after falling earlier in the day. U.S. oil is trading at a rare premium to Brent, reflecting the hit that the global benchmark is taking with potentially more crude from Iran flowing as sanctions imposed on the country for its nuclear program may be lifted as early as Friday.

    TECHNOLOGY TOPIC NEWS

    By Naomi Tajitsu DETROIT (Reuters) - Japanese automakers are taking on Detroit's Big Three and scrambling to expand their share of pickup truck sales in the United States, as record low gasoline prices curb demand for their once best-selling small and medium-sized sedans. Soaring demand for SUVs and pickup trucks drove U.S. auto sales to a record high last year, as the lowest fuel prices in seven years prompted a shift from sedans and smaller cars to larger vehicles in the world's biggest auto market. The big U.S. automakers - Ford Motor Co , General Motors Co and Chrysler - have so far gained the most from this shift, with many selling pickups at luxury car prices.
