Formed back in 2014 with first product released three years later, Yellowbrick has specialized at the high-performance end of the data warehousing spectrum that includes analytics of real-time data. It cites benchmarks of the ability to ingest up to 10 terabytes of data per hour. Until now, it has done so through a proprietary hardware architecture that includes specialized FPGA chips that made it sound to us like the second coming of Netezza appliances. While impressed with their performance stats, we were initially leery about how Yellowbrick's market success would scale when defined by custom hardware. But over the past year, the company has started ramping up its Yellowbrick Cloud Data Warehouse services that instead leverages the specialized hardware that are offered by providers like AWS, which have much more buying power than niche providers like Yellowbrick alone. The early implementation of the cloud service is still on a traditional data warehouse architecture where … [Read more...] about Yellowbrick shows that its data warehouse is not smoke and mirrors
OTTAWA—Iran has the final say over who gets to analyze the flight data recorders from the Ukrainian passenger jet that its own Revolutionary Guard shot down in January, says the head of Canada’s Transportation Safety Board. Kathy Fox, the chair of the TSB, said in an interview Monday that Canada wants to change the section of international aviation law that gives Iran the authority to lead the investigation and control what information is released publicly. But she said that is a complicated process that won’t happen any time soon. Fox confirmed the long-awaited downloading of crucial flight data and cockpit voice recordings from the Jan. 8 crash was completed successfully in Paris on Monday. The safety board sent a team to Paris to witness the downloading of the data. “It’s not clear to us whether some of that work is going to be done in France or whether Iran is simply going to take the data and go back and do it in their country,” Fox said in an interview Monday. There were … [Read more...] about Iran controls black boxes data from Ukraine crash downloaded in Paris, TSB chair says

By Jon Cohen Apr. 30, 2021 , 6:15 PM Science ’s COVID-19 reporting is supported by the Pulitzer Center. VADU, INDIA— At a tiny rural hospital about 1 hour’s drive northeast of Pune, India, in early April, a team of workers loaded an SUV with coolers, syringes, vials, thermometers, and electronic tablets. They drove 20 minutes to the village of Karandi, slowing to pass caravans of migrant sugarcane cutters in ox carts. They spent more than 1 hour taking blood samples at a cluster of houses shared by three generations of one family. Later, the team would scour the blood for antibodies that indicate past run-ins with COVID-19. Girish Dayma, who helps oversee this research program run by a satellite of King Edward Memorial (KEM) Hospital in Pune, says the team’s surveys to date show that up to 40% of these villagers have antibodies for SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19. “When we started this serosurveillance, it was thought that the rural area was not much … [Read more...] about Will India’s devastating COVID-19 surge provide data that clear up its death ‘paradox’?
