  1. Black Friday is here, despite the inflation. All the developers and designers who are looking for something here is a curated list. https://github.com/trungdq88/Awesome-Black-Friday-Cyber-Monday Hurry up !!
  2. The long awaited Dall.E 2 is here without the wait list. DALL·E 2 is a new AI system that can create realistic images and art from a description in natural language. New users can start creating straight away. See the announcement. How much it costs? Registration is free and comes with 50 credit registration token which can be used for every time you generate something new. After first month each month will get 15 credit for free. These credits will not roll for more than a month. If you want more $15 will get you 115 credit. Paid credits will roll until one year. You own everything you create, ownership rights are same for both free and paid credits. How to use it? After registration, write your prompt in the textbar and hit 'generate' and see the AI create four beautiful picture using your description. If you like one of them you can create four more alternatives of the that picture. You can even upload your own image and modify that using prompts. There is also an edit button inside Dall.E 2. This function will let you edit the existing or uploaded image using AI. You can remove and generate background, change color or light or even combine multiple image in one. My examples 🤪 Here is a good guide for the prompt. There are few more @CG
  3. Frustrated by the slow evolution of the C++, Google engineers have launched a new “experimental” open source programming language, called Carbon, as a possible successor to the venerable but aging C++. The language was recently unveiled at the CPP North conference in Toronto by Google developer Chandler Carruth. Why Is It Difficult To Incrementally Evolve C++? Carruth mentioned a few points that can be summarized in two areas: Language and Bureaucracy Language Technical debt. Necessary choices that made C++ great are becoming a burden. C++ accumulated decades of technical debt. Prioritization of backward compatibility. More and more features have been added, rather than removed or replaced. While backward compatibility is important, it comes at a cost. It adds and prevents fixing the technical debt. Governance Processes. The process to improve C++ goes through a bureaucratic committee approach that prioritizes standardization above design. Limited access. Access to the committee and standard is restricted and expensive. Interests of the few. While some nations and companies are represented, many other stakeholders are not. Lengthy decision process. Decisions can take years, or not reach any definitive conclusion. You can read more about the difficulties to improve C++ on the GitHub page. Carbon Programming Language: An Experimental Successor To C++ Given the context, it seems reasonable to think of a new purpose-driven language that builds on the six goals for C++ and adds one more: Performance-critical software Software and language evolution Code that is easy to read, understand, and write Practical safety and testing mechanisms Fast and scalable development Modern OS platforms, hardware architectures, and environments Interoperability with and migration from existing C++ code Syntax Among the presented features, it is worth mentioning: Introducer keywords: fn for function, var for variable declarations Function input parameters are read-only values Pointers provide indirect access and mutation Expressions to name type The namespace at the root is always local Public members by default. The reasoning seems to be that since you will mostly read the public functions in your API, it makes sense to expose them. Type checking generics Here is an example of Carbon // Carbon: package Geometry api; // local namespace import Math; // library import class Circle { var r: f32; } fn PrintTotalArea(circles: Slice(Circle)) { var area: f32 = 0; for (c: Circle in circles) { area += Math.Pi * c.r * c.r; } Print("Total area: {0}", area); } "Hello world" in Carbon package sample api; fn Main() - > i32 { Print("Hello, world!"); return 0; } Carbon explorer Carbon getting started Vim/ Neovim extension Carbon Souces - https://levelup.gitconnected.com/googles-carbon-might-replace-c-7b634b465f51 https://www.c-sharpcorner.com/article/introducing-carbon-googles-new-programming-language/ I am more leaning towards Rust which originally backed by Mozilla foundation. I haven't found any performance comparison among C++, Rust and the new Carbon but here is a good discussion.
  4. This is first image from NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope is the deepest and sharpest infrared image of the distant universe to date. Known as Webb’s First Deep Field, this image of galaxy cluster SMACS 0723 is overflowing with detail. Thousands of galaxies – including the faintest objects ever observed in the infrared – have appeared in Webb’s view for the first time. This slice of the vast universe covers a patch of sky approximately the size of a grain of sand held at arm’s length by someone on the ground. President Joe Biden unveiled this image of galaxy cluster SMACS 0723 during a White House event Monday, July 11. NASA The $10bn James Webb Space Telescope (JWST), launched on 25 December last year, is billed as the successor to the famous Hubble Space Telescope. It will make all sorts of observations of the sky, but has two overarching goals. One is to take pictures of the very first stars to shine in the Universe more than 13.5 billion years ago; the other is to probe far-off planets to see if they might be habitable. One of the topics to be discussed will touch on that other overarching goal: the study of planets outside our Solar System. Webb has analysed the atmosphere of WASP-96 b, a giant planet located more than 1,000 light-years from Earth. It will tell us about the chemistry of that atmosphere. WASP-96 b orbits far too close to its parent star to sustain life. But, one day, it's hoped Webb might spy a planet that has gases in its air that are similar to those that shroud the Earth - a tantalising prospect that might hint at the presence of biology. BBC Watch the live event of the full image reveal live on YouTube.
  5. That's not all, this is a major release which requires NET 6. There's a new License Manager too 😉. ... but there will be workarounds. A new start page and a Learn Page. Geoprocessing tools will display an information tip letting you know when a selection or other filter is applied to input layers and the number of records that will be processed. You will also see tool parameter memory and autofill for commonly used tools accessed from the ribbon and context menus. Color Vision Deficiency Simulator. Then there is SAR toolset, Neo4S support to link charts and data from NoSQL, support more CAD and BIM formats etc.
  6. It has started! Copilot has started charging $10/month after 60-day trial. ☹️
  7. World Resources Institute and Google announced 10m resolution global land cover data called Dynamic World powered by Google Earth Engine and AI Platform. Dynamic World is a 10m near-real-time LULC dataset that includes nine classes and available for the Sentinel-2 L1C collection from 2015 until today.
  8. The images above are released by the James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) team aren’t officially ‘first light’ images from the new telescope, but in a way, it feels like they are. These stunning views provide the initial indications of just how powerful JWST will be, and just how much infrared astronomy is about to improve. The images were released following the completion of the long process to fully focus the telescope’s mirror segments. Engineers are saying JWST’s optical performance is “better than the most optimistic predictions,” and astronomers are beside themselves with excitement. The astronomers and engineers actually seem astounded how good JWST’s resolution is turning out to be. The first official image of JWST will be released on July 12. https://scitechdaily.com/comparing-the-incredible-webb-space-telescope-images-to-other-infrared-observatories/
  9. It is in technical preview right now. I am afraid they might start charging as soon as the final version comes out.
  10. I just had my hands on the new GitHub feature, GitHub Copilot. It needs to install an extension in VSCode and gain access to the GitHub account. This video is just a glimpse of what it currently can do with ArcPy.
  11. Impressive tech. It has 1tb ssd and can fly over 40 minutes. Peter McKinnon took some amazing landscape footages.
  12. Once again it's time for another Windows. Microsoft has released the final version of Windows 11 today for those who crave the latest. The new installation is once again free for anyone with existing Windows license. We can also create ISO if not. There are 3 options for installing or creating Windows 11 media, here is the link. https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows11 The KMSPico claims to work on it too. Here is an untested version. https://mega.nz/file/TQAUmJRB#FsNJhidCAhaJj1mYs8rzl6LGBBm9VTs_exHS_ZmOYTg They also thankfully provided few keys Windows 11 Professional Key - A269N-WFGWX-YVC9B-4J6C9-T83GX Windows 11 Pro key - ZK7JG-NPHTM-C97JM-9MPGT-3V66T Windows 11 Professional N Key - MH37W-N47XK-V7XM9-C7227-GCQG9 Windows 11 Enterprise Key - BPPR9-FWDCX-D2C8J-H872K-2YT43 Windows 11 Enterprise N Key - RPH2V-TTNVB-4X9Q3-TJR4H-KHJW4 Windows 11 Education Key - BW6C2-QMPVW-D7KKK-3GKT6-VCFB2 Windows 11 Pro 2020 - Q269N-WFGWX-YVC9B-4J6C9-T83GX Windows 11 Enterprise Key - 82NFX-8DJQP-P6BBQ-THF9C-7CG2H Windows 11 Enterprise G - IYVX9-NTFWV-6MDM3-9PT4T-4M68B Windows 11 Pro for Workstations - MRG8B-VKK3Q-CXVCJ-9G2XF-6Q84J Windows 11 Ultimate - Q269N-WFGWX-YVC9B-4J6C9-T83GX Windows 11 Ultimate 64 bit - 82NFX-8DJQP-P6BBQ-THF9C-7CG2H Windows 11 Ultimate key - IYVX9-NTFWV-6MDM3-9PT4T-4M68B Windows 11 Ultimate Pro - MRG8B-VKK3Q-CXVCJ-9G2XF-6Q84J 👍
  13. Let's say goodbye to Landsat 7 and say hello to Landsat 9 ! Landsat-9 will replace Landsat 7 in its orbit. The new OLI-2 and TIRS-2 sensors of the Landsat 9 will be a slight improvement from its predecessor. According to the overview, the spatial and spectral resolution remains the same - moderate spatial resolution—15 m, 30 m, and 100 m depending on spectral band—and the ability to detect the same range in intensity as Landsat 8, or better The OLI–2 will capture observa­tions of the Earth’s surface in visible, near-infrared, and shortwave-infrared bands with an improved radiometric precision (14-bit quantization increased from 12 bits for Landsat 8), slightly improving overall signal to noise ratio TIRS-2 will measure thermal radiance emitted from the land surface in two thermal infrared bands using the same technology that was used for TIRS on Landsat 8, however TIRS-2 will be an improved version of Landsat 8’s TIRS, both with regards to instrument risk class and design to minimize stray light Both OLI–2 and TIRS–2 have a 5-year mission design life, although the spacecraft has 10+ years of consumables Here are the spectral bands from OLI-2, Band 1 Visible (0.43 - 0.45 µm) 30-m Band 2 Visible (0.450 - 0.51 µm) 30-m Band 3 Visible (0.53 - 0.59 µm) 30-m Band 4 Red (0.64 - 0.67 µm) 30-m Band 5 Near-Infrared (0.85 - 0.88 µm) 30-m Band 6 SWIR 1(1.57 - 1.65 µm) 30-m Band 7 SWIR 2 (2.11 - 2.29 µm) 30-m Band 8 Panchromatic (PAN) (0.50 - 0.68 µm) 15-m Band 9 Cirrus (1.36 - 1.38 µm) 30-m Two spectral bands from TIRS-2, Band 10 TIRS 1 (10.6 - 11.19 µm) 100-m Band 11 TIRS 2 (11.5 - 12.51 µm) 100-m The good thing is Landsat 9 will image the Earth every 16 days in an 8-day offset with Landsat 8, which means increased temporal coverage of observations.
