Making cool projects on the Raspberry Pi is more often than not the whole point of having one. The single-board computer's 40 GPIO pins make it possible to attach a seemingly endless selection of external sensors, buttons and more but maker Mcllrn decided this was no longer necessary. Using nothing more than the CPU by itself, Mcllrn has managed to turn the processor into a functioning button you can use for input in any Python program. Add this to our list of things you can do with a Raspberry Pi that you probably should not do. In the spirit of pushing the Pi to its limits, we had to feature this project as it’s one of the most clever uses of the CPU we’ve seen so far. The button “presses” are registered by constantly monitoring the temperature of the CPU. When Mcllrn touches the processor with a bare finger, the temperature rises. This temperature change is enough to detect and register a specific response. A simple Python script demonstrates the input recognition in the … [Read more...] about Programmer Turns Raspberry Pi CPU Turned Into a Button

“I’m really cautious about what goes into my body.” “Until the F.D.A. fully approves the vaccine, I feel like it’s just not a good idea.” “I don’t believe things should be forced on people when we’ve been telling them we’re going to follow the science.” Americans cite a range of reasons for not getting a Covid-19 vaccine. Understanding who the unvaccinated are and what might persuade them will be crucial to fighting the Delta variant. Supported by Continue reading the main story One segment of people who have avoided shots is vehemently opposed to the idea. But there is a second group, surveys suggest, that is still deciding.

They have their overlaps, but data scientist and data engineering jobs are distinct in the needs they meet. While a data scientist analyses data, a data engineer designs and maintains the technological systems that make this analysis possible. Both are absolutely essential in the data ecosystem, as this example would illustrate. “A person employed with Google working on the search algorithm would be a data scientist. But the one who implements the algorithm across servers to ensure queries are answered in a split second is a data engineer,” explains Kunal Jain, founder and CEO, Analytics Vidhya. The demand for data engineering is particularly on a sharply rising trend. The Dice 2020 Tech Job Report described data engineering as the fastest-growing career option in technology in 2019, citing a 50 per cent year-on-year growth in the number of open positions. “A mix of skills (data science and data engineering) or a lot more of the latter is now preferred by companies,” says … [Read more...] about Data engineering in focus
