Un meraviglioso scatto che fa riflettere. Ed una mia riflessione potrebbe andare fuori dagli schemi: L'evoluzione della nostra società, intesa in tutti i settori, non è però forse merito in gran parte delle persone che hanno rinunciato agli affetti per dedicarsi completamente al proprio obiettivo/sogno/fine...e che sono morti soli e poveri in una fredda e grigia camera da letto? Pochi hanno saputo conciliare affetti familiari e lavoro, quindi magari i manichini fuori dal negozio potrebbero essere Van Gogh o Gaudì o Tesla e quelli dentro persone comuni che godono degli agi offerti da chi ha rinunciato al calore familiare. Possibile che stiano guardando il risultato dei loro sforzi e delle loro rinunce e siano per questo orgogliosi e non tristi. Potrebbe essere un'amore universale quello a cui hanno puntato. Non è detto che chi viene rappresentato fuori al freddo sia totalmente infelice, magari sta seguendo un sogno che lo scalda e lo rende gioioso e per lui è quella la sola famiglia a cui potrà mai tenere. Il punto di vista è fondamentale... Marco, mi è venuto il dubbio di essere più "strolico" di te Un abbraccio Totò

The Second National Data Science Bowl, a data science competition where the goal was to automatically determine cardiac volumes from MRI scans, has just ended. We participated with a team of 4 members from Ghent University and finished 2nd!

The team kunsthart (artificial heart in English) consisted of Ira Korshunova, Jeroen Burms, Jonas Degrave, 3 PhD students, and professor Joni Dambre. It’s also a follow-up of last year’s team ≋ Deep Sea ≋, which finished in first place for the First National Data Science Bowl.

Overview

This blog post is going to be long, here is a clickable overview of different sections.

Introduction

The problem

The goal of this year’s Data Science Bowl was to estimate minimum (end-systolic) and maximum (end-diastolic) volumes of the left ventricle from a set of MRI-images taken over one heartbeat. These volumes are used by practitioners to compute an ejection fraction: fraction of outbound blood pumped from the heart with each heartbeat. This measurement can predict a wide range of cardiac problems. For a skilled cardiologist analysis of MRI scans can take up to 20 minutes, therefore, making this process automatic is obviously useful.

Unlike the previous Data Science Bowl, which had very clean and voluminous data set, this year’s competition required a lot more focus on dealing with inconsistencies in the way the very limited number of data points were gathered. As a result, most of our efforts went to trying out different ways to preprocess and combine the different data sources.

The data

The dataset consisted of over a thousand patients. For each patient, we were given a number of 30-frame MRI videos in the DICOM format, showing the heart during a single cardiac cycle (i.e. a single heartbeat). These videos were taken in different planes including the multiple short-axis views (SAX), a 2-chamber view (2Ch), and a 4-chamber view (4Ch). The SAX views, whose planes are perpendicular to the long axis of the left ventricle, form a series of slices that (ideally) cover the entire heart. The number of SAX slices ranged from 1 to 23. Typically, the region of interest (ROI) is only a small part of the entire image. Below you can find a few of SAX slices and Ch2, Ch4 views from one of the patients. Red circles on the SAX images indicate the ROI’s center (later we will explain how to find it), for Ch2 and Ch4 they specify the location of SAX slices projected on the corresponding view.

2Ch 4Ch

The DICOM files also contained a bunch of metadata. Some of the metadata fields, like PixelSpacing and ImageOrientationm were absolutely invaluable to us. The metadata also specified patient’s age and sex.

For each patient in the train set, two labels were provided: the systolic volume and the diastolic volume. From what we gathered (link), these were obtained by cardiologists by manually performing a segmentation on the SAX slices, and feeding these segmentations to a program that computes the minimal and maximal heart chamber volumes. The cardiologists didn’t use the 2Ch or 4Ch images to estimate the volumes, but for us they proved to be very useful.

Combining these multiple data sources can be difficult, however for us dealing with inconsistencies in the data was more challenging. Some examples: the 4Ch slice not being provided for some patients, one patient with less than 30 frames per MRI video, couple of patients with only a handful of SAX slices, patients with SAX slices taken in weird locations and orientations.

The evaluation

Given a patient’s data, we were asked to output a cumulative distribution function over the volume, ranging from 0 to 599 mL, for both systole and diastole. The models were scored by a Continuous Ranked Probability Score (CRPS) error metric, which computes the average squared distance between the predicted CDF and a Heaviside step function representing the real volume.

An additional interesting novelty of this competition was the two stage process. In the first stage, we were given a training set of 500 patients with a public test set of 200 patients. In the final week we were required to submit our model and afterwards the organizers released the test data of 440 patients and labels for 200 patients from the public test set. We think the goal was to compensate for the small dataset and prevent people from optimizing against the test set through visual inspection of every part of their algorithm. Hand-labeling in the first stage was allowed on the training dataset only, for the second stage it was also allowed for 200 validation patients.

The solution: traditional image processing, convnets, and dealing with outliers

In our solution, we combined traditional image processing approaches, which find the region of interest (ROI) in each slice, with convolutional neural networks, which perform the mapping from the extracted image patches to the predicted volumes. Given the very limited number of training samples, we tried combat overfitting by restricting our models to combine the different data sources in predefined ways, as opposed to having them learn how to do the aggregation. Unlike many other contestants, we performed no hand-labelling .

Pre-processing and data augmentation

The provided images have varying sizes and resolutions, and do not only show the heart, but the entire torso of the patient. Our preprocessing pipeline made the images ready to be fed to a convolutional network by going through the following steps:

  • applying a zoom factor such that all images have the same resolution in millimeters
  • finding the region of interest and extracting a patch centered around it
  • data augmentation
  • contrast normalization

To find the correct zooming factor, we made use of the PixelSpacing metadata field, which specifies the image resolution. Further we will explain our approach to ROI detection and data augmentation.

Detecting the Region Of Interest through image segmentation techniques

We used classical computer vision techniques to find the left ventricle in the SAX slices. For each patient, the center and width of the ROI were determined by combining the information of all the SAX slices provided. The figure below shows an example of the result.

ROI extraction steps
ROI extraction steps

First, as was suggested in the Fourier based tutorial, we exploit the fact that each slice sequence captures one heartbeat and use Fourier analyses to extract an image that captures the maximal activity at the corresponding heartbeat frequency (same figure, second image).

From these Fourier images, we then extracted the center of the left ventricle by combining the Hough circle transform with a custom kernel-based majority voting approach across all SAX slices. First, for each fourier image (resulting from a single sax slice), the highest scoring Hough circles for a range of radii were found, and from all of those, the highest scoring ones were retained. , and the range of radii are metaparameters that severely affect the robustness of the ROI detected and were optimised manually. The third image in the figure shows an example of the best circles for one slice.

Finally, a ‘likelihood surface’ (rightmost image in figure above) was obtained by combining the centers and scores of the selected circles for all slices. Each circle center was used as the center for a Gaussian kernel, which was scaled with the circle score, and all these kernels were added. The maximum across this surface was selected as the center of the ROI. The width and height of the bounding box of all circles with centers within a maximal distance (another hyperparameter) of the ROI center were used as bounds for the ROI or to create an ellipsoidal mask as shown in the figure.

Given these ROIs in the SAX slices, we were able to find the ROIs in the 2Ch and 4Ch slices by projecting the SAX ROI centers onto the 2Ch and 4Ch planes.

Data augmentation

As always when using convnets on a problem with few training examples, we used tons of data augmentation. Some special precautions were needed, since we had to preserve the surface area. In terms of affine transformations, this means that only skewing, rotation and translation was allowed. We also added zooming, but we had to correct our volume labels when doing so! This helped to make the distirbution of labels more diverse.

Another augmentation here came in the form of shifting the images over the time axis. While systole was often found in the beginning of a sequence, this was not always the case. Augmenting this, by rolling the image tensor over the time axis, made the resulting model more robust against this noise in the dataset, while providing even more augmentation of our data.

Data augmentation was applied during the training phase to increase the number of training examples. We also applied the augmentations during the testing phase, and averaged predictions across the augmented versions of the same data sample.

Network architectures

We used convolutional neural networks to learn a mapping from the extracted image patches to systolic and diastolic volumes. During the competition, we played around a lot with both minor and major architectural changes. Our base architecture for most of our models was based on VGG-16.

As we already mentioned, we trained different models which can deal with different kinds of patients. There are roughly four different kinds of models we trained: single slice models, patient models, 2Ch models and 4Ch models.

Single slice models

Single slice models are models that take a single SAX slice as an input, and try to predict the systolic and diastolic volumes directly from it. The 30 frames were fed to the network as 30 different input channels. The systolic and diastolic networks shared the convolutional layers, but the dense layers were separated. The output of the network could be either a 600-way softmax (followed by a cumulative sum), or the mean and standard deviation of a Gaussian (followed by a layer computing the cdf of the Gaussian).

Although these models obviously have too little information to make a decent volume estimation, they benefitted hugely from test-time augmentation (TTA). During TTA, the model gets slices with different augmentations, and the outputs are averaged across augmenations and slices for each patient. Although this way of aggregating over SAX slices is suboptimal, it proved to be very robust to the relative positioning of the SAX slices, and is as such applicable to all patients.

Our single best single slice model achieved a local validation score of 0.0157 (after TTA), which was a reliable estimate for the public leaderboard score for these models. The approximate architecture of the slice models is shown on the following figure.

2Ch and 4Ch models

These models have a much more global view on the left ventricle of the heart than single SAX slice models. The 2Ch models also have the advantage of being applicable to every patient. Not every patient had a 4Ch slice. We used the same VGG-inspired architecture for these models. Individually, they achieved a similar validation score (0.0156) as was achieved by averaging over multiple sax slices. By ensembling only single slice, 2Ch and 4Ch models, we were able to achieve a score of 0.0131 on the public leaderboard.

Patient models

As opposed to single slice models, patient models try to make predictions based on the entire stack of (up to 25) SAX slices. In our first approaches to these models, we tried to process each slice separately using a VGG-like single slice network, followed by feeding the results to an overarching RNN in an ordered fashion. However, these models tended to overfit badly. Our solution to this problem consists of a clever way to merge predictions from multiple slices. Instead of having the network learn how to compute the volume based on the results of the individual slices, we designed a layer which combines the areas of consecutive cross-sections of the heart using a truncated cone approximation.

Basically, the slice models have to estimate the area (and standard deviation thereof) of the cross-section of the heart in a given slice . For each pair of consecutive slices and , we estimate the volume of the heart between them as , where is the distance between the slices. The total volume is then given by .

Ordering the SAX slices and finding the distance between them was achieved through looking at the SliceLocation metadata fields, but this field was not very reliable in finding the distance between slices, neither was the SliceThickness. We looked for the two slices that were furthest apart, drew a line between them, and projected every other slice onto this line. This way, we estimated the distance between two slices ourselves.

Our best single model achieved a local validation score of 0.0105 using this approach. This was no longer a good leaderboard estimation, since our local validation set contained relatively few outliers compared to the public leaderboard in the first round. The model had the following architecture:

* The first dimension is the batch size, i.e. the number of patients, the second dimension is the number of slices. If a patient had fewer slices, we padded the input and omitted the extra slices in the volume estimation.

Oftentimes, we did not train patient models from scratch. We found that initializing patient models with single slice models helps against overfitting, and severely reduces training time of the patient model.

The architecture we described above was one of the best for us. To diversify our models, some of the good things we tried include:

  • processing each frame separately, and taking the minimum and maximum at some point in the network to compute systole and diastole
  • sharing some of the dense layers between the systole and diastole networks as well
  • using discs to approximate the volume, instead of truncated cones
  • cyclic rolling layers
  • leaky RELUs
  • maxout units

One downside of the patient model approach was that these models assume that SAX slices nicely range from one end of the heart to the other. This was trivially not true for patients with very few (< 5) slices, but it was harder to detect automatically for some other outlier cases as in figure below, where something is wrong with the images or the ROI algorithm fails.

Training and ensembling

Error function. At the start of the competition, we experimented with various error functions, but we found optimising CRPS directly to work best.

Training algorithm. To train the parameters of our models, we used the Adam update rule (Kingma and Ba).

Initialization. We initialised all filters and dense layers orthogonally (Saxe et al.). Biases were initialized to small positive values to have more gradients at the lower layer in the beginning of the optimization. At the Gaussian output layers, we initialized the biases for mu and sigma such that initial predictions of the untrained network would fall in a sensible range.

Regularization. Since we had a low number of patients, we needed considerable regularization to prevent our models from overfitting. Our main approach was to augment the data and to add a considerable amount of dropout.

Validation

Since the trainset was already quite small, we kept the validation set small as well (83 patients). Despite this, our validation score remained pretty close to the leaderboard score. Also, in cases where it didn’t, it helped us identify issues in our models, namely problematic cases in the test set which were not represented in our validation set. We noticed for instance that quite some of our patient models had problems with patients with too few SAX slices (< 5).

Selectively train and predict

By looking more closely at the validation scores, we observed that most of the accumulated error was obtained by wrongly predicting only a couple of such outlier cases. At some point, being able to handle only a handful of these meant the difference between a leaderboard score of 0.0148 and 0.0132!

To mitigate such issues, we set up our framework such that each individual model could choose not to train on or predict a certain patient. For instance, models on patients’ SAX slices could choose not to predict patients with too few SAX slices, models which use the 4Ch slice would not predict for patients who don’t have this slice. We extended this idea further by developing expert models, which only trained and predicted for patients with either a small or a big heart (as determined by the ROI detection step). Further down the pipeline, our ensembling scripts would then take these non-predictions into account.

Ensembling and dealing with outliers

We ended up creating about 250 models throughout the competition. However, we knew that some of these models were not very robust to certain outliers or patients whose ROI we could not accurately detect. We came up with two different ensembling strategies that would deal with these kind of issues.

Our first ensembling technique followed the following steps:

  1. For each patient, we select the best way to average over the test time augmentations. Slice models often preferred a geometric averaging of distributions, whereas in general arithmetic averaging worked better for patient models.
  2. We average over the models by calculating each prediction’s KL-divergence from the average distribution, and the cross entropy of each single sample of the distribution. This means that models which are further away from the average distribution get more weight (since they are more certain). It also means samples of the distribution closer to the median-value of 0.5 get more weight. Each model also receives a model-specific weight, which is determined by optimizing these weights over the validation set.
  3. Since not all models predict all patients, it is possible for a model in the ensemble to not predict a certain patient. In this case, a new ensemble without these models is optimized, especially for this single patient. The method to do this is described in step 2.
  4. This ensemble is then used on every patient on the test-set. However, when a certain model’s average prediction disagrees too much with the average prediction of all models, the model is thrown out of the ensemble, and a new ensemble is optimized for this patient, as described in step 2. This meant that about ~75% of all patients received a new, ‘personalized’ ensemble.

Our second way of ensembling involves comparing an ensemble that is suboptimal, but robust to outliers, to an ensemble that is not robust to them. This approach is especially interesting, since it does not need a validation set to predict the test patients. It follows the following steps:

  1. Again, for each patient, we select the best way to average over the test time augmentations again.
  2. We combine the models by using a weighted average on the predictions, with the weights summing to one. These weights are determined by optimising them on the validation set. In case not all models provide a prediction for a certain patient, it is dropped for that patient and the weights of the other models are rescaled such that they again sum to one. This ensemble is not robust to outliers, since it contains patient models.
  3. We combine all 2Ch, 4Ch and slice models in a similar fashion. This ensemble is robust to outliers, but only contains less accurate models.
  4. We detect outliers by finding the patients where the two ensembles disagree the most. We measure disagreement using CRPS. If the CRPS exceeds a certain threshold for a patient, we assume it to be an outlier. We chose this threshold to be 0.02.
  5. We retrain the weights for the first ensemble, but omit the outliers from the validation set. We choose this ensemble to generate predictions for most of the patients, but choose the robust ensemble for the outliers.

Following this approach, we detected three outliers in the test set during phase one of the competition. Closer inspection revealed that for all of them either our ROI detection failed, or the SAX slices were not nicely distributed across the heart. Both ways of ensembling achieved similar scores on the public leaderboard. (0.0110)

Second round submissions

For the second round of the competition, we were allowed to retrain our models on the new labels (+ 200 patients). We were also allowed to plan two submissions. Of course, it was impossible to retrain all of our models during this single week. For this reason, we chose to only train our 44 best models, according to our ensembling scripts.

For our first submission, we splitted of a new validation set. The resulting models were combined using our first ensembling strategy.

For our second submission, we trained our models on the entire training set (i.e. there was no validation split). We assembled them using the second ensembling method. Since we had no validation set to optimise the weights of the ensemble, we computed the weights by training an ensemble on the models we trained with a validation split, and transferred them over.

Software and hardware

We used Lasagne, Python, Numpy and Theano to implement our solution, in combination with the cuDNN library. We also used PyCUDA for a few custom kernels. We made use of scikit-image for pre-processing and augmentation.

We trained our models on the NVIDIA GPUs that we have in the lab, which include GTX TITAN X, GTX 980, GTX 680 and Tesla K40 cards. We would like to thank Frederick Godin and Elias Vansteenkiste for lending us a few extra GPUs in the last week of the competition.

Conclusion

In this competition, we tried out different ways to preprocess data and combine information from different data sources, and thus, we learned a lot in this aspect. However, we feel that there is still a room for improvement. For example, we observed that most of our error still hails from a select group of patients. These include the ones for which our ROI extraction fails. In hindsight, hand-labeling the training data and training a network to do the ROI extraction would be a better approach, but we wanted to sidestep doing a lot of this kind of manual effort as much as possible. In the end, labeling the data would probably have been less time intensive.

          Hackers clone Tesla Model S key fob in 2 seconds to steal car      Cache   Translate Page      

Feeling reckless and looking for something new to do with your Raspberry Pi? Using a Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+, Proxmark3, Yard Stick One, and a USB battery pack, Belgium researchers needed less than two seconds to clone the key fob of a Tesla Model S.

The reckless part comes into play if you were to actually steal the Tesla. But if you turn to a life of crime, then the researchers believe McLaren, Karma and Triumph are vulnerable to the attack, as well, because like Tesla, the keyless entry solutions for those vehicles are designed by Pektron.

Ein Tipp, was Deine Glaubwürdigkeit erhöht: Kennzeichne nachträgliche Editierungen Deiner Kommentare auch als solche, so wie ich das mache. Mindestens dann, wenn Dir schon jemand darauf geantwortet hat. Sonst entsteht ganz schnell ein merkwürdiger Eindruck und das wollen wir doch nicht, oder? Ein weiterer Tipp: Wer davon schreibt "man sollte bei den Fakten bleiben" wäre allenfalls gut beraten sich nicht in Spekulationen und reine, persönliche Interpretationen zu ergehen weil das mit Fakten so viel zu tun hat wie eine Kuh mit Klavierspielen. Auch das erhöht die Glaubwürdigkeit. Und da alle guten Dinge drei sind: Persönliche Abwertungen kommen selten gut an. Das Vermeiden derselben erhöht die Akzeptanz deutlich. Auf eine spannende Diskussion hier weiter hin. Möglichst mit Fakten ohne Spekulationen und persönliche Wertungen. Nachtrag: Letzten Endes ist es immer von Vorteil wenn man selbst nicht hinter den an andere gestellten Ansprüchen zurück bleibt. Wie gesagt, "Kandidaten", die hier "Sachlichkeit" anmahnten um dann umso subtilere FUD betreiben zu können hatten wir hier schon zur Genüge. Spannenderweise haben die sich immer mit "Schönreden ist dabei ebensowenig angebracht wie Schlechtreden." oder so ähnlich angekündigt. (edit2) Muss ja nicht auch so sein, oder?

Ich verfolge die Entwicklung von Tesla seit mittlerweile über 8 Jahren, sicherlich auch mit einem gewissen persönlichen Interesse und daraus resultierendem Wunschdenken. Und seitdem ich zum ersten Mal in einem Model S gesessen habe, wollte ich nichts anderes mehr. Produktionsprobleme sind da, um gelöst zu werden. Vielleicht hat EM da ja zu hohe Erwartungen geweckt. Wie auch immer, wenn Tesla selbst 100.000 M3 pro Monat produziert, sind das immer noch nicht genug - die sog. Journalisten werden auch das dankbar publizieren und mit irgendetwas möglichst negativem in Zusammenhang bringen. Bringt schließlich Quote und versöhnt die fossilen Werbekunden. Die fehlende Glaubwürdigkeit wird erst später erkannt. Ich sehe Tesla als Wette auf die Zukunft, sonst hätte ich schon längst Kasse gemacht und wäre ausgestiegen. So interessieren mich die täglichen Kurse eigentlich gar nicht, denn die werden noch in ungeahnte Höhen steigen. Wäre etwas anderes zu erwarten, hätte z.B. auch EM schon längst verkauft und womöglich sogar abgedankt. Schließlich kennt er sein Unternehmen am besten und ist obendrein cleverer als unsereiner. Bashing? Ja vielleicht. Im Falle Nio war es aus meiner Sicht aber auch ein Problem der Wahrnehmung des Schreiberlings, sonst sollte doch ein besserer Artikel (oder auch nur ein besseres Bashing) dabei rausgekommen sein. Ich finde, man sollte schlichtweg bei den Fakten bleiben. Wenn etwas nicht rund läuft, kann man drüber reden und berichten, aber möglichst sachlich. Schönreden ist dabei ebensowenig angebracht wie Schlechtreden. - Und wenn ein Thema abgearbeitet ist, sollte es auch erledigt sein. Kritiklose Mimosen? Vielleicht sollte man doch nur öfter mal Fünf gerade sein lassen.

OK, da habe ich Dich missverstanden, liebe Pamela. Ich dachte, Du meinst 100.000 NUR im Q3. Ich sollte mal genauer lesen ;-) Ich nahm an 55.000 bis 60.000 NUR im Q3. (Edit) Deine Angaben decken sich damit komplett mit meinen. Wäre ja nicht das erste mal :-) LG Wil

hmm, wir werden sehen. Aber SO optimistisch bin ich nicht. Ich denke, Tesla erreicht die 55.000 bis 60.000 produzierte Model 3. Sind ja leider keine 3 Wochen mehr bis Ende Q3. Dann die 11.000 Model 3 aus Q2 plus die üblichen 25.000 Models S und X. Da bleiben im Optimum gesamthaft 5000 im Transit. Fazit: 60.000 + 11.000 + 25.000 - 5000 = 91.000 ausgelieferte Fahrzeuge. Wäre schon absoluter Rekord an Steigerung

Nein, liebe Pamela, wir erliegen einem "unrealistischem Wunschdenken". Wobei ich immer noch auf die Antwort warte, was das denn sein soll. Ich meine nachdem ich diesen Begriff von ihm in mindestens 2 verschiedenen Kommentaren gelesen habe darf man schon erwarten, zu erfahren, was das nun sein soll. LG Wil PS: Ich rechne mit 80.000 bis 90.000 ausgelieferten Fahrzeugen im Q3 und einem Umsatzplus von ca. 2,8 Mrd gegenüber Q2 wobei eine schwarze Null mit viel Optimismus möglich ist.

Ihre Risikobewertung zu Tesla ist positiv, meine auch. Geben wir zu, es ist auch ein bisschen Wunschdenken, basierend auf Erfahrungen und Fakten. Das was in den Medien zum Börsengang von Nio geschrieben wurde, war aber eigentlich nur dazu dienlich, wiedermal auf Tesla's gegenwärtige große Produktionsprobleme hinzuweisen - die es vielleicht gar nicht gibt, werden wir sehen (ich bin Optimist und hoffe die 100.000 werden in Q3 geknackt).

Oh wie nett. Na denn... Irgendwie sind Deine Kommentare für mich in sich nicht authentisch und konsistent. Ich würde nicht in Tesla investieren, wenn ich mir solche Sorgen um die Gesundheit des CEO machen würde, wie Du. So oft wie Du das Thema hier erwähnst. Anderen Ortes bezeichnest Du Dich selbst als ein "potentieller Investor". Also ist Dein letzter Satz rein theoretisch? (edit) OK, ich spekuliere auch nicht auf den möglichen Ausfall des CEO, wie Du das machst... Ich sehe eben dieses Risiko überhaupt nicht. Musk ist fit wie immer oder eben unfit wie immer; je nachdem wie man das sehen will bei einem so exzentrischen CEO wie er es ist. Jedenfalls ist keine Veränderung zu sehen in irgendeiner Richtung ausgenommen die Geschichte mit dem "going private"; aber das wurde schon bis zum St. Nimmerleinstag diskutiert. Was Musk angeht, sehen andere auch keine Veränderung: https://www.cnbc.com/2018/09/11/spacexs-shotwell-reportedly-says-musk-lucid-and-capable-as-ever.html (Edit und Nachtrag)

"Wenn ich aber sehe, dass Tesla sich mit neuen Gigafactorys anschickt, die Welt zu erobern, mit Produkten, denen z.T. ein jahrelanger TechnologieVorsprung attestiert wird, dann will ich doch lieber dort mitmischen, als bei einem noch so gut aufgestellten Newcomer, bei dem ich letztlich auch nicht wissen kann, wie lange er durchhält." Ist aber ein Unterschied, ob ich jetzt die Nio-Aktie kaufe für wenige 4$ (hätte ja auch 12 $ sein können) und eine gute positive Anfangsentwicklung mitmache oder ob ich bei Tesla mit Risiko und 300$ die Aktie einsteige. Und wie Wil eben auch richtig anmerkt: Die Schlagzeilen lauteten durchweg so oder so ähnlich: "Teslas Produktionsschwierigkeiten hemmen Anleger auch beim Börsengang der Konkurrenz" - also ist Tesla schuld. Das ist reines Tesla-Bashing, oder ?

Diese Argumentation ist an sich in meinen Augen nicht konsistent. Du schreibst, es gäbe eine Nachfrage, die noch nicht zu aktzeptablen Konditionen bedient werden könnte. Genau DAS würde den Konkurrenten von Tesla im Bereich E-Mobilität eher zu Gute kommen, da klar in den Artikeln postuliert wird, dass Tesla die Nachfrage nicht bedienen kann. Mir kommt das jetzt sehr konstruiert vor, was Du hier bringst. Der Ausgangspunkt war: NIO kommt schlecht an der Börse weg weil Tesla angeblich massive Probleme hat. Warum Du jetzt alles anders darstellst als der OP von mir weißt wohl nur Du selbst. DU selbst hast ja in Deiner Replik auch noch von den angeblichen ach so großen Schwierigkeiten und Problemen bei Tesla gesprochen ohne konkret zu werden.

  • Some Tesla customers will have to wait longer to get a response from customer service due to a significant increase in vehicle deliveries, CEO Elon Musk said via Twitter on Wednesday.
  • "Due to a large increase in vehicle delivery volume in North America, Tesla customers may experience longer response times. Resolving this is our top priority," he said.
  • Tesla did not immediately respond to a request for comment on how long the extended response times will last or what percentage of customers may be affected.

 

Some Tesla customers will have to wait longer to get a response from customer service due to a significant increase in vehicle deliveries, CEO Elon Musk said via Twitter on Wednesday.

"Due to a large increase in vehicle delivery volume in North America, Tesla customers may experience longer response times. Resolving this is our top priority," he said.

Tesla did not immediately respond to a request for comment on how long the extended response times will last or what percentage of customers may be affected. Some Tesla customers have told Business Insider that the company's service centers are slow to respond to inquiries, while others have said they are easy to contact.

Musk's tweet came one minute after he replied to a Twitter user who said that Tesla's customer-service center was not responding to his emails as he prepared for delivery of a Model 3.

"My apologies, am working on this exact issue right now," Musk said in response.

As the end of the third quarter nears, Tesla faces an important test. The company has said that it expects to become consistently profitable beginning in the third quarter and, on Friday, CEO Elon Musk said in an email to employees that was posted on Tesla's website that the third quarter will be the "most amazing quarter in our history." He said in the email that Tesla will build and deliver more than double the amount of cars it did in the second quarter, when it built 53,339 and delivered 40,740.

A profitable quarter and large increase in production could refocus the Tesla narrative around the company's rapid production growth and improving financial prospects. But failing to meet those goals may only increase doubts about the company's long-term potential.

Tesla is known for its high rate of executive turnover, and this year has been no different.

McAnear worked at Apple and Johnson & Johnson before joining Tesla in 2015, according to his LinkedIn page.

Tesla has experienced a high rate of executive turnover this year, though a company spokesperson said its attrition rate among employees at the "director" level or higher has fallen by double digits in the past 12 months. Last week saw three senior employees leave the company: former head of human resources Gabrielle Toledano, former chief accountant Dave Morton, and former head of communications Sarah O'Brien (her departure was announced in August, but her final day at the company was Friday, according to Bloomberg).

          The Tesla of China fails to raise the $1.8 billion it targeted in its US IPO (NIO)      Cache   Translate Page      

William Li China Nio

  • Chinese electric-car startup Nio, known as the Tesla of China, debuted for trading in the US on Wednesday.
  • Nio, backed by Chinese tech giant Tencent, failed to raise the $1.8 billion it targeted during its initial public offering.
  • Nio's fundraising is an example that shows China's ambition to become a dominant global electric-vehicle producer, Reuters says.

Chinese electric-car startup Nio, which has been touted as the Tesla of China, went public in the US on Wednesday, weeks after Tesla CEO Elon Musk openly said  he was considering taking his company private.

Shares of Nio debut with a sell-off, opening at $6 apiece or 4.2% below its initial-public-offering price of $6.26. The company raised $1 billion from the offering, falling short of the $1.8 billion target it had set.

iQiyi, known as the Netflix of China, is still the biggest US listing by a Chinese firm this year. iQiyi raised $2.42 billion from a Nasdaq IPO in March. Pinduoduo, an online group discounter, is the second largest at $1.63 billion. 

Nio, backed by Chinese tech giant Tencent, was founded by William Li in November 2014 as NextCar and changed its name in July 2017. Tencent, its largest investor, beneficially owns all the Class B ordinary shares and represents 21.5% of the voting power. Li retains 14.5% of the business and 48.3% of the voting power, according to Bizjournals, citing the electric-car maker's filing.

Nio's public fundraising shows China's ambition to become a dominant global electric-vehicle producer as the nation bids to reduce vehicle emissions, produce high-tech industries, and compete with the likes of Tesla and other electric-car makers, Reuters says. It notes that other electric-car makers in China, such as WM Motor Technology Co and Xpeng Motor, have also raised billions from heavyweight investors including tech giants Alibaba, Baidu, and Tencent.

While Nio just started trading in the US, its competitor Tesla has been under pressure since Musk tweeted on August 7 that he was considering taking his company private at $420 a share and had "funding secured." He later reversed course, but his tweets triggered a Securities and Exchange subpoena and relentless attacks from investors betting against the company.

          Imprenditore milionario si fa uno spinello in Diretta Radiofonica      Cache   Translate Page      

Un’intervista che ha fatto il giro del mondo in pochi giorni. Il noto imprenditore statunitense Elon Musk, CEO delle aziende Tesla e Space X, è stato recentemente ospite al podcast "Joe Rogan Experience", del seguitissimo comico Joe Rogan, per parlare delle novità riguardanti le sue aziende. L’intervista, trasmessa in Diretta radio e video giovedì 6 settembre, è andata in onda dopo un periodo piuttosto negativo per l’azienda Tesla, con le recenti dimissioni dell’ex direttore della contabilità Dave Morton, e i pessimi risultati registrati in Borsa nell’ultimo periodo.

Ma a sorprendere gli ascoltatori non sono state le dichiarazioni di Musk, che anzi si è dilungato sulla necessità di ricorrere ad energie rinnovabili, e su spiegazioni in merito ai progetti per le sue aziende. A fare il giro del mondo è stato ciò che è successo durante la diretta, ovvero ospite e conduttore che hanno fumato marijuana e bevuto whisky insieme. Azioni del tutto legali in California (dov’è stato prodotto il web show), e l’uso di marijuana per scopo ricreativo è consentito.

Nel corso dell’intervista di oltre due ore, caricata per intero sul canale youtube “Joe Regan Experience”, l’imprenditore statunitense ha dichiarato di non essere un consumatore abituale di marijuana, e ha parlato anche delle politiche aziendali riguardo i controlli antidroga per i dipendenti, dato che le tracce di THC nel sangue devono comunque essere entro i limiti consentiti.

Nonostante non ci sia stato nessun comportamento contro la legge, gli investitori di Tesla sembrano lo stesso non aver apprezzato il piccolo svago in diretta da parte del CEO dell’azienda, che ha accettato tranquillamente lo spinello e il bicchiere di whiskey generosamente offerti dal conduttore.

          Un grupo de investigadores consigue hackear un Tesla Model S en segundos, detectando un serio problema de seguridad      Cache   Translate Page      

Tesla Model S 100D supercargador

Ya hemos visto en varias ocasiones cómo han conseguido acceder a un Tesla de forma remota, pero quizá nunca de una manera tan efectiva y rápida. El 'robo' de un Tesla Model S se ha llevado a cabo por un grupo de investigadores de la Universidad KU Leven en Bélgica, que han demostrado que con solo 600 dólares en equipos informáticos y de radio se puede sustraer un Tesla en segundos.

Como suele ocurrir con este tipo de experimentos de ciberseguridad, presentaron los hallazgos a Tesla, que respondió con una actualización del software de la que os hablamos hace unos días.

Cuatro rápidos pasos, aunque no necesariamente sencillos

contacto prueba tesla model s 100D

Al igual que la mayoría de los sistemas de entrada sin llave, los llaveros Tesla Model S envían un código cifrado basado en una clave criptográfica secreta a las radios de un automóvil para activarlo y desbloquearlo, lo que permite que el motor del automóvil arranque. Después de nueve meses de trabajo de ingeniería, el equipo de KU Leuven descubrió, en el verano de 2017, que el sistema de entrada sin llave del Model S, desarrollado por un fabricante llamado Pektron, usaba un cifrado débil de solo 40 bits para encriptar esas claves.

Con un ordenador, un par de radios, un disco duro externo y baterías los investigadores descubrieron este fallo de seguridad que a Tesla se le había pasado por alto. Para empezar, crearon una base de datos con todas las claves digitales posibles que se pueden usar para abrir un Model S. Según explica Wired, el resultado fue de seis tercios de claves potenciales que fueron almacenadas en el disco duro.

A partir de ahí, el investigador solo tuvo que seguir cuatro pasos:

  • 1.Copiar la señal del sistema de bloqueo que emite el Model S.
  • 2.Aproximar la radio a menos de un metro del llavero de la víctima y engañar al mando para que emita dos códigos de respuesta utilizando la señal que copió el sistema de bloqueo del coche.
  • 3.Ejecutar las señales a través de la base de datos que contiene las posibles claves para desencriptar la clave digital.
  • 4.Proceder a acceder al vehículo.

Este ataque permite además clonar el llavero y crear uno propio, por lo que se puede desbloquear y conducir el vehículo las veces deseadas.

Un hallazgo que les ha valido una recompensa de 10.000 dólares y que ha permitido además a Tesla detectar el fallo, identificar una solución e implementarla a través de una actualización del software, que incluye introducir una clave para poder iniciar la conducción. El denomiando 'PIN to drive'.

Los investigadores creen que su ataque también podría funcionar contra vehículos McLaren y Karma y las motocicletas vendidas por Triumph, que también usan el sistema de llavero de Pektron. En estos casos, la única solución inmediata serían unas bolsas aislantes para las llaves.


          Cabify también ofrecerá desde hoy mismo coches de alquiler por días o meses, desde 35 euros      Cache   Translate Page      

Bipi Cabify 3

Cabify está intentando convertirse en algo mucho más grande que una empresa de transporte con coches VTC. Tras haber puesto en marcha el servicio de motosharing Movo hace sólo unos meses, la start-up española ha cerrado un acuerdo con Bipi.

Bipi y Cabify han aliado sus fuerzas para que dentro de los servicios de transporte con los que ya cuenta Cabify ahora sus clientes puedan optar también por la posibilidad de tener un coche sin tenerlo en propiedad, utilizando para ello el carsharing para trayectos largos como complemento a servicios como Car2Go, Emov, Zity o WiBLE.

Más opciones para tener coche sin tener coche

Bipi Cabify 2

A través del nuevo servicio ofrecido por Cabify, los usuarios que quieran tener un coche a su disposición sin esperar hasta que llegue su conductor podrán optar por alquilar un parque de coches bien por días o por meses completos incluso, flexibilizando la oferta de coches que cubran todas las necesidades de los clientes.

Los precios de Bipi arrancan en 35 euros por día de uso con seguro a todo riesgo, tarifas fijas y la entrega del vehiculo en el domicilio. A partir de ahí hay bonos como los 189 euros por 10 días de uso o 299 euros por un mes completo.

Bipi Cabify

La flota se divide en los tamaños pequeño (Fiat 500, Renault Clio y Audi A1), mediano (Volkswagen Golf, Nissan Qashqai, Tesla Model S 85 o Bentley Continental GT) y grande (desde berlinas del segmento E a monovolúmenes de hasta nueve plazas), con modelos similares que podrán variar dependiendo del estado de la flota pero siempre con precios cerrados previamente para cada coche.

Con este nuevo servicio los clientes podrán romper las barreras urbanas, ya que los servicios de coche compartido permiten que cualquier conductor que no tenga coche pueda plantearse realizar desplazamientos largos para una escapada de fin de semana o unas vacaciones sin recurrir a las tradicionales empresas de alquiler de coches.

Bipi Cabify 1

Hasta ahora Bipi contaba con 60.000 usuarios registrados y dando servicio a más de 300 empresas, pero esta integración en la plataforma de Cabify servirá para disparar su alcance ya que la empresa ya asentada en el sector de las VTC cuenta con más de 3 millones de usuarios registrados en España.

Más allá de los servicios de carsharing limitados a las grandes ciudades y que ya han demostrado su capacidad para reducir el espacio ocupado descongestionando los núcleos urbanos así como contribuir a la reducción de emisiones contaminantes, los coches compartidos cuentan con el apoyo de las administraciones públicas y los fabricantes de coches se están volcando con esta nueva modalidad.

Bipi Cabify 4

Daimler y BMW de forma conjunta, SEAT con Respiro, Renault, Ford o próximamente Volvo son entre otras las marcas que están apoyando un futuro donde las ciudades puedan estar menos saturadas, conscientes de la cada vez menos imperante necesidad de tener un coche por familia o habitante.

El acuerdo entre Bipi y Cabify es efectivo desde hoy mismo, ofreciendo servicio en Madrid, Barcelona y Valencia.

          Oracle's head of cloud left after butting heads with Larry Ellison, source says (ORCL)      Cache   Translate Page      

Thomas Kurian

  • A source tells Business Insider that 22-year Oracle veteran Thomas Kurian has butted heads with his boss, founder, CTO and executive chairman Larry Ellison.
  • Bloomberg reports that the issue concerns Oracle's strategy on its cloud computing.
  • Kurian may have been advocating for a cloud strategy that is as risky as it is wise.

Last week, the Oracle eco-system was surprised to learn that Thomas Kurian, one of Oracle's longest serving executives in charge of Oracle's all-important cloud business, had left for an extended leave of absence.

Inside Oracle, word is that Kurian's departure was due to butting heads with his boss Larry Ellison, a source tells Business Insider. This person says that Kurian's good-bye was intended as a resignation, although the company says that he has not resigned but is simply "taking some time off. We expect him to return soon," a spokesperson said.

The disagreement seems to have centered on the direction Oracle should take with its bet-the-company cloud computing business, reports Bloomberg.

Sources told Bloomberg that Kurian was pushing Ellison to allow more of Oracle's software to run on clouds that compete with Oracle, particularly market leaders Amazon and Microsoft

If true, this disagreement between the two strategies, and the two men, would not be surprising. Both of them are known for being tough, outspoken and opinionated — characteristics which describe a lot of Oracle's culture.

A page ripped out of the Microsoft playbook

If Kurian is pushing Oracle to embrace multiple clouds — even the clouds of its bitter enemies — the strategy would make a lot of sense.

It's similar to what Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella has done. There was a time when Microsoft's Bill Gates and Steve Ballmer were protectionist about Windows. But, with the rise of cloud computing, Nadella recognized that the world had changed.

Satya NadellaIt became far less important to push people to use Windows than to ensure that Microsoft's enormous catalog of software, particularly Office, could run on any device. So, Microsoft built out its cloud to serve up Office 365 to run on any device; it made sure that its Windows Server software could run on other clouds; and it embraced competitive software, like Linux, on its own cloud.

That way, Microsoft makes money when customers run its software on a competitive cloud (they still have to buy the software) or when they run a competitor's software on their own cloud (they have to pay for Microsoft cloud usage).

Oracle is in a similar quandary but with one key difference: Amazon has become a major threat to Oracle.

Amazon isn't just trying to get Oracle's customers to bring Oracle software to Amazon Web Services (which they can already do), it's trying to get customers to ditch Oracle's database and use Amazon's database instead. Amazon even built a tool to make it easier to move from an Oracle database to an Amazon one. Microsoft also has its own database and has been a bitter competitor with Oracle for years.

So Ellison has been building an Oracle cloud that competes with Amazon (and Microsoft) insisting Oracle's cloud is a faster, better way to run the database. If Oracle's customers don't stay within Oracle's own sphere, Oracle could lose them altogether.

The clock is ticking

Larry EllisonThe problem is, Oracle's cloud is years behind Amazon's in terms of features. It will take Oracle billions of dollars and several years to catch-up, if it even can because Amazon is adding features at an ever increasing rate, hundreds or more per quarter. Microsoft is widely considered the No. 2 cloud.

Enterprise customers are choosing their cloud providers now, based on the features they want and need now.

Oracle may not have years to play catch up. And the person responsible for that catch-up is 22-year Oracle veteran Kurian, and his team. Kurian is the president who heads engineering and product development. About a quarter of the company reports up to him.

There have been signs that Oracle's cloud ambitions are not growing as well as the company wants, too, putting Kurian on the hot seat. Although, to be fair, Oracle is doing a good job in getting many of its customers to sign up for the certain parts of its cloud. They like the cloud versions of its HR, marketing and financial software (similar to how Microsoft moved people from MS Office to Office 365). 

Should Ellison allow more of that software to run on competitors' clouds? And should it partner with its rivals (assuming such partnerships were an option) to run their software on its own cloud?

Probably yes. Other would-be Amazon competitors have either been crushed (Rackspace) or forced to eat crow and partner up (VMware). Once VMware got past the bitter taste, its partnership with Amazon has proved fruitful, filling a need with enterprise customers who want their datacenters to work better with the Amazon cloud (and making Amazon more of a beast, in the process).

But there's no question it's risky, and Ellison certainly wouldn't be crazy for being wary.

Oracle declined comment.

  • Some Tesla customers will have to wait longer to get a response from customer service due to a significant increase in vehicle deliveries, CEO Elon Musk said via Twitter on Wednesday.
  • "Due to a large increase in vehicle delivery volume in North America, Tesla customers may experience longer response times. Resolving this is our top priority," he said.
  • Tesla did not immediately respond to a request for comment on how long the extended response times will last or what percentage of customers may be affected.

 

Some Tesla customers will have to wait longer to get a response from customer service due to a significant increase in vehicle deliveries, CEO Elon Musk said via Twitter on Wednesday.

"Due to a large increase in vehicle delivery volume in North America, Tesla customers may experience longer response times. Resolving this is our top priority," he said.

Tesla did not immediately respond to a request for comment on how long the extended response times will last or what percentage of customers may be affected. Some Tesla customers have told Business Insider that the company's service centers are slow to respond to inquiries, while others have said they are easy to contact.

Musk's tweet came one minute after he replied to a Twitter user who said that Tesla's customer-service center was not responding to his emails as he prepared for delivery of a Model 3.

"My apologies, am working on this exact issue right now," Musk said in response.

As the end of the third quarter nears, Tesla faces an important test. The company has said that it expects to become consistently profitable beginning in the third quarter and, on Friday, CEO Elon Musk said in an email to employees that was posted on Tesla's website that the third quarter will be the "most amazing quarter in our history." He said in the email that Tesla will build and deliver more than double the amount of cars it did in the second quarter, when it built 53,339 and delivered 40,740.

A profitable quarter and large increase in production could refocus the Tesla narrative around the company's rapid production growth and improving financial prospects. But failing to meet those goals may only increase doubts about the company's long-term potential.

Although recreational marijuana use is permitted in the state, it remains illegal under federal law and employers can still discipline workers for being high.

I'm not a big fan of box sets, but this one from Cinderella is pretty interesting. Cinderella always gets put down as "hair metal", but they were always more of blues/ hard rock band than a metal band. It was probably the cover of Night Songs, and the video for "Don't Know What You Got till its Gone" that caused that. I sort of put them in the same box as Tesla, as far as their music goes. I have a greatest hits record for them, but I may pick this up.

In der neuen Generation schöpft der edle Geländegänger aus dem Vollen.
Kurz nachdem Mercedes sein erstes Elektro-SUV EQC vorgestellt hat, ist nun wieder ein Geländegänger mit herkömmlichen Motoren an der Reihe. Konkret handelt es sich dabei um den von Grund auf neu entwickelten GLE, der seine Publikumspremiere auf dem Pariser Autosalon 2018 (4. bis 14. Oktober) feiert und Anfang 2019 in den Handel kommt. Sein Vorgängermodell hieß ja erst nach dem Facelift so und basierte noch auf dem ML bzw. der M-Klasse. Für eine Neuauflage war es also höchste Zeit. Schließlich trifft das edle SUV auf deutlich frischere Konkurrenten wie VW Touareg, BMW X5, Porsche Cayenne oder Audi Q7. Mercedes hat jedenfalls nichts dem Zufall überlassen und spendiert dem GLE innovative Technologien und eine komplett neue Motorenpalette auf 48 Volt Basis. Innen kommt das neue MBUX-System mit zwei großen Displays und dem Sprachassistenten „Hey Mercedes“ zum Einsatz, das es bisher nur in der A-Klasse und dem EQC (startet erste Mitte 2019) gibt.

@vgaborka Jelenleg a Teslának semmi gondja sincs az eladásokkal, 4000000 db-ra van előrendelése kb 3 évre le van kötve a gyártókapacitása. Az idézett cikk meg egy kicsit almát hasonlít a körtéhez, a hagyományos gyártók esetében van értelme 3-4 éves statisztikákat nézni a Tesla viszont napról napra fejleszti a modelljeit, tehát ami a múlt héten még problémás alkatrész vagy gyártási hiba volt az ma már nem biztos, hogy hibás lesz, de a software-ek is akár tegnap leraktad a garázsba az autód és reggel már a fejlesztett verzió lesz rajta. Aki új technológiát, nem szennyező autót akart ebben a kategóriában venni az csak Teslát tud venni, akkoriban és most is a többi gyártó csak messziről nézte a Teslák aku kapacitását és teljesítményét.

          Стоимость страховки для Tesla Model 3 оказалась на уровне Porsche 911      Cache   Translate Page      
Стоимость страховки для Tesla Model 3 оказалась на уровне Porsche 911. Страхование бюджетного седана оказалось дороже, чем ожидалось. Так, в среднем они оказались сравнимы с расценками на страховку для Porsche 911. Согласно страховому агентству, средняя стоимость страхования Model 3 составляет 2 814 долларов США, она варьируется от 1 958 до 3 664 долларов США в различных регионах. В то же время средняя стоимость страховки Porsche 911 всего на 35 долларов выше. Сообщается, что главная причина таких цен - высокая стоимость запчастей в магазинах Tesla и политика компании. Из-за этого несколько лет владения автомобилем обойдутся покупателям Model 3 дороже примерно на 700-800 долларов, чем для большинства других водителей, владеющих автомобилями сопоставимого класса с точки зрения сегмента рынка, размера или цены. Ранее Tesla запустила свою программу InsureMyTesla, однако затраты на страхование у Tesla остается выше, чем у конкурентов, поскольку, по сообщению производителя, "учитывает не...

The reckless part comes into play if you were to actually steal the Tesla. But if you turn to a life of crime, then the researchers believe McLaren, Karma and Triumph are vulnerable to the attack, as well, because like Tesla, the keyless entry solutions for those vehicles are designed by Pektron.

If a sedan is super-amazing, people will still buy it, even if the "segment is dying." I don't disagree with you that the segment is dying (or at least, in retreat). Tesla figured (correctly) that if their car was compelling enough, it would still sell enough. And boy were they correct. #1-selling large luxury car in most of the world markets that it is on sale in!!! Tesla are doing just fine at the moment with the product release sequence that they have employed. No need to suggest that things could have been better had they focused on SUVs back in 2012 when the Model S was released.

          Comment on Tesla Model S Retains Europe’s Top-Selling Large Luxury Car Title by Rolando      Cache   Translate Page      
"" they sell Teslas even in Germany despite being hindered in so many ways."" they are not hindered at all: Every EV get 4,000 Euro cash back as long it cost less than 60,000 Euro. First comes first served for all EV sales - independent of brand and country of origin. If Tesla would finally introduce the below 60k Euro Model-3 in Germany, they could scoop most of the EV subsidy budget and all local German players as latecomers go empty. A massive advantage for early birds like Tesla who have a product to sell and not some sales-brochures 2020 and can mass produce and deliver the Mod-3 without 12 month waiting time (Leaf and Ioniq/Kona). So the situation for Tesla as first mover is much better in Germany when they finally come over with < 60k Euro priced cars - better than for Tesla in the USA, where the federal tax rebate of $7,500 is per brand and will be scaled down for Tesla first.

"...whether or not letting go of 0-60 times as a constraint would influence range or other parameters, such as charging." We need look no farther than the Hyndai Ioniq Electric to see that when a BEV's engineering is optimized for energy efficiency, it can do noticeably better than the Model 3: I see figures of 4.46 miles/kWh for the Ioniq Electric vs. 3.89 miles/kWh for the LR Model 3 (citation below). Of course with increase energy efficiency comes longer range, given the same sized battery capacity. And of course that is a tradeoff; the under-powered Ioniq Electric has a vastly inferior 0-60 time, which means it's not going to be very responsive when you need a burst of speed to accelerate onto a freeway or to pass on a two-lane highway. I don't see that charging is going to be affected by the acceleration performance of the EV powertrain, altho a higher performance EV will be able to handle more power going to and from the battery pack, so a lower performance EV might be limited to a lower/slower charging rate. It shouldn't affect charging efficiency. https://cleantechnica.com/2018/06/30/what-are-the-most-efficient-electric-cars/

It depends on how much energy is used to heat the cabin. I can see that with a slow drive on a very cold day/night, with the cabin heater cranked up, you might lose as much as 40% of range. But that would be an outlier case. Typically a BEV loses a maximum of 20-30% range in bitterly cold weather.

Некоторые обладатели автомобилей Tesla увидели на экранах бортовых компьютеров своих автомобилей следующее сообщение:
"Мы временно разрешаем вашей машине получить доступ к дополнительному заряду батарей, а так же к бесплатной Суперзарядке в процессе подготовки к урагану Флоренция".
Судя по всему Tesla оказалась способна это сделать потому что некоторые электромобили серий Model X и Model S были проданы покупателям с аккумуляторами ёмкостью 75кВт*ч, хотя они заплатили за 60кВт*ч.
Как сообщает издание ArsTechnica Tesla более агрессивна в беспроводном распространении обновлений ПО для своих автомобилей с целью поменять их поведение, чем другие производители. Например ранее в этом году она выпустила обновление устраняющее некие проблемы с тормозной системой.
В середине октября программный запрет на полную ёмкость батарей опять вступит в силу.

          Mercedes EQ S to be flagship in £9bn electric model blitz      Cache   Translate Page      
Mercedes EQ S
How we think the Mercedes EQ S will look
Luxury EV saloon will top electrified Mercedes line-up of more than 130 derivatives

Mercedes-Benz bosses have approved a €10 billion (£9bn) programme to launch more than 130 electrified variants within the next seven years, spearheaded by the upcoming EQ S luxury saloon.

The plan – which involves an extended range of mild hybrids, plug-in hybrids, battery EVs and hydrogen- fuelled models – was tabled at a recent board meeting of Mercedes’ parent company Daimler and received the backing of chairman Dieter Zetsche.

The goal of the massive project is to give Mercedes an unparalleled range of premium electrified models, which will help to significantly reduce the company’s average fleet emissions ahead of a series of increasingly strict EU CO2 emission regulations starting from 2021.

The model assault will be split across the firm’s three electrified brands: the pure-electric EQ range, mild-hybrid EQ Boost, and EQ Power plug-in hybrids.

New Mercedes-Benz EQ C: all-electric SUV revealed

Mercedes has already confirmed the first three models in the full-electric EQ range. It will begin with the recently unveiled EQ C SUV. This will be followed by a production version of the EQ A hatchback concept seen at last year’s Frankfurt motor show.

Those two models will then be joined in 2020 by the upmarket EQ S, which was spotted testing in early prototype guise at Mercedes’ engineering HQ in Stuttgart, Germany, recently. As its name suggests, the Tesla Model S and Porsche Taycan rival will offer a similar level of luxury, comfort and features to the traditional S-Class saloon.

Whereas the EQ C and EQ A are based on modified GLC and A-Class platforms – known internally as MEA1 and MEA1.5 – respectively, the EQ S will use a dedicated EV platform.

Named MEA2, the new platform makes heavy use of aluminium and is designed with a fully flat floor, as is common with many EV-only designs. This has allowed Mercedes to give the EQ S different proportions from the E-Class and S-Class, between which it will sit in size.

The EQ S will be a similar size to the current CLS. It will feature a shorter bonnet and ultra-short overhangs, which, company insiders say, contribute to “a whole new dimension in interior packaging”.

The spy shots also show that the EQ S has a heavily raked windscreen compared with the C-Class, which combined with the shorter overhangs should give the model greater interior space. The roofline echoesthe design of the latest CLS, although secrecy surrounds the rear of the new model, which was completely hidden on the prototype cars.

The EQ S is expected to be powered by twin electric motors – one on each axle – giving permanent four-wheel drive. A similar set-up in the EQ C delivers 402bhp and 564lb ft of torque.

Although the production version of the EQ C has now been revealed, deliveries of the first fully-electric Mercedes are not expected to begin until June 2019. The SUV has a kerb weight of 2425kg and it will initially feature an 80kWh lithium ion battery – around 10kWh less than the battery in the Jaguar I-Pace.

The EQ C will be built at Mercedes’ factory in Bremen, Germany, while models for the Chinese market will be made at the factory owned by the joint venture between the firm and its Chinese partner Beijing Automotive in Beijing, China, in 2020. The EQ S is set to be built at Mercedes’ Sindelfingen factory in Stuttgart.

Although these are the only three EQ models confirmed to be going on sale by 2022, the firm has committed to 10 pure EVs in the longer term. According to well-placed sources within Mercedes, the second wave of EQ models is currently in the conceptual stages of design.

Mercedes-Benz set to release four EVs by 2020

These include a compact four-door Tesla Model 3 rival based around the recently unveiled A-Class saloon, a compact SUV similar in size to the GLB due in 2019 and a flagship electric sports car from the Mercedes-AMG performance division.

Although none of the next wave of EQ models has advanced to committed project status yet, Autocar has been told that Mercedes is proceeding with plans to launch all of them by the end of the second stage of its electrification plan in 2025.

The final component in the currently planned EQ product range is the GLC Fuel Cell, which will be offered on a limited lease basis later this year. It is based around the standard GLC and uses a fuel cell stack, hydrogen tank, lithium ion battery and plug-in charging for a zero-emission range of about 310 miles.

The EQ nameplate will also be used for Mercedes city car sub-brand Smart’s pure-electric Fortwo EQ Electric Drive, Fortwo cabrio EQ Electric Drive and Forfour EQ Electric Drive. All three of these models are due to receive a facelift in 2019, including larger batteries to extend their range.

While the dedicated EQ models will offer the biggest reduction in fleet average emissions, the board has also approved a broad-based hybridisation strategy that will include “well over 100” variants by the end of 2022. Under the plan, existing models will be offered with the choice of mild-hybrid EQ Boost or plug-in hybrid EQ Power drivetrains.

Mercedes has already launched a limited number of new-generation mild-hybrid EQ Boost models. Each features a 48V electrical system and integrated starter motor capable of providing electrical boosting qualities under acceleration. Such systems are available on models that include the E-Class and CLS.

Difficulties in sourcing lithium ion batteries for the new-generation plug-in hybrid, due to production bottlenecks at Daimler subsidiary Deutsche Accumotive, has held back the introduction of EQ Power models. Initially revealed at the Geneva motor show in March and set for launch this year, the C300e, C300de, E300e and E300de EQ Power plug-in hybrids are now not planned to reach UK dealers until 2019.

Following these new plug-in hybrids into Mercedes showrooms next year will be the A250e 4Matic and B250e 4Matic EQ Power.

Both use a fourth-generation hybrid system in which the electric motor sits within the rear axle and provides drive exclusively to the rear wheels. As in standard A-Class and B-Class models, though, the front wheels are powered by a combustion engine, in the form of the Renault-sourced 1.3-litre four-cylinder used in the A200.

Another model included in the EQ Power line-up is AMG’s upcoming 1000bhp-plus Project One hypercar. Despite being revealed at last year’s Frankfurt motor show alongside the EQ A hatchback concept, it is not planned for UK delivery until 2019.

Mercedes’ split electrification strategy and brands can also be seen in its current motorsport programmes. Its 2018 Formula 1 car, in which Lewis Hamilton is leading the championship, is officially titled the W09 EQ Power+ to reflect its hybrid powertrain. It will also run a works squad – labelled the Mercedes-Benz EQ Team – in the all-electric Formula E from the 2019/2020 season onwards. 

What the Mercedes EQ C will have to beat: 

Tesla Model X, On sale: now:

This large SUV can’t match traditionally powered rivals for ride and build quality but impresses for its cleverness, pace and interior space. Tesla is developing a Model Y small SUV.

Jaguar I-Pace, On sale: now:

Jaguar’s first EV has beaten the Tesla Model S in an Autocar twin test. It’s both an excellent EV and one of the best Jaguars in years. The I-Pace features 394bhp and a 90kWh lithium ion battery.

Audi E-tron, On sale: 2019:

The E-tron had been due to launch this month but ‘organisational issues’ have delayed it until mid-September. It’s built on the VW Group’s MLB platform and should have a 248-mile range.

BMW iX3, On sale: 2020:

Shown in concept form at the Beijing motor show this year, the iX3 is set to produce more than 270bhp, with a 70kWh battery giving a 248-mile range. It will be BMW’s third pure EV.

          Oracle's head of cloud left after butting heads with Larry Ellison, source says (ORCL)      Cache   Translate Page      

Thomas Kurian

  • A source tells Business Insider that 22-year Oracle veteran Thomas Kurian has butted heads with his boss, founder, CTO and executive chairman Larry Ellison.
  • Bloomberg reports that the issue concerns Oracle's strategy on its cloud computing.
  • Kurian may have been advocating for a cloud strategy that is as risky as it is wise.

Last week, the Oracle eco-system was surprised to learn that Thomas Kurian, one of Oracle's longest serving executives in charge of Oracle's all-important cloud business, had left for an extended leave of absence.

Inside Oracle, word is that Kurian's departure was due to butting heads with his boss Larry Ellison, a source tells Business Insider. This person says that Kurian's good-bye was intended as a resignation, although the company says that he has not resigned but is simply "taking some time off. We expect him to return soon," a spokesperson said.

The disagreement seems to have centered on the direction Oracle should take with its bet-the-company cloud computing business, reports Bloomberg.

Sources told Bloomberg that Kurian was pushing Ellison to allow more of Oracle's software to run on clouds that compete with Oracle, particularly market leaders Amazon and Microsoft

If true, this disagreement between the two strategies, and the two men, would not be surprising. Both of them are known for being tough, outspoken and opinionated — characteristics which describe a lot of Oracle's culture.

A page ripped out of the Microsoft playbook

If Kurian is pushing Oracle to embrace multiple clouds — even the clouds of its bitter enemies — the strategy would make a lot of sense.

It's similar to what Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella has done. There was a time when Microsoft's Bill Gates and Steve Ballmer were protectionist about Windows. But, with the rise of cloud computing, Nadella recognized that the world had changed.

Satya NadellaIt became far less important to push people to use Windows than to ensure that Microsoft's enormous catalog of software, particularly Office, could run on any device. So, Microsoft built out its cloud to serve up Office 365 to run on any device; it made sure that its Windows Server software could run on other clouds; and it embraced competitive software, like Linux, on its own cloud.

That way, Microsoft makes money when customers run its software on a competitive cloud (they still have to buy the software) or when they run a competitor's software on their own cloud (they have to pay for Microsoft cloud usage).

Oracle is in a similar quandary but with one key difference: Amazon has become a major threat to Oracle.

Amazon isn't just trying to get Oracle's customers to bring Oracle software to Amazon Web Services (which they can already do), it's trying to get customers to ditch Oracle's database and use Amazon's database instead. Amazon even built a tool to make it easier to move from an Oracle database to an Amazon one. Microsoft also has its own database and has been a bitter competitor with Oracle for years.

So Ellison has been building an Oracle cloud that competes with Amazon (and Microsoft) insisting Oracle's cloud is a faster, better way to run the database. If Oracle's customers don't stay within Oracle's own sphere, Oracle could lose them altogether.

The clock is ticking

Larry EllisonThe problem is, Oracle's cloud is years behind Amazon's in terms of features. It will take Oracle billions of dollars and several years to catch-up, if it even can because Amazon is adding features at an ever increasing rate, hundreds or more per quarter. Microsoft is widely considered the No. 2 cloud.

Enterprise customers are choosing their cloud providers now, based on the features they want and need now.

Oracle may not have years to play catch up. And the person responsible for that catch-up is 22-year Oracle veteran Kurian, and his team. Kurian is the president who heads engineering and product development. About a quarter of the company reports up to him.

There have been signs that Oracle's cloud ambitions are not growing as well as the company wants, too, putting Kurian on the hot seat. Although, to be fair, Oracle is doing a good job in getting many of its customers to sign up for the certain parts of its cloud. They like the cloud versions of its HR, marketing and financial software (similar to how Microsoft moved people from MS Office to Office 365). 

Should Ellison allow more of that software to run on competitors' clouds? And should it partner with its rivals (assuming such partnerships were an option) to run their software on its own cloud?

Probably yes. Other would-be Amazon competitors have either been crushed (Rackspace) or forced to eat crow and partner up (VMware). Once VMware got past the bitter taste, its partnership with Amazon has proved fruitful, filling a need with enterprise customers who want their datacenters to work better with the Amazon cloud (and making Amazon more of a beast, in the process).

But there's no question it's risky, and Ellison certainly wouldn't be crazy for being wary.

Oracle declined comment.

          Numbers In the News: The Physics of a Flying Tesla       Cache   Translate Page      
A few months ago, Elon Musk famously launched his own car into space on top of SpaceX's Falcon Heavy rocket. It was an unprecedented stunt, and one that's unlikely ever to be repeated, but last week the world saw another Tesla launched skyward...but this one didn't go nearly as well.

There's been a lot of coverage lately of a 2016 model Tesla that managed an impressive leap on a residential road in the town of Barrie, Ontario. Most news reports explain that the vehicle was traveling at a high speed a when it launched off a steep run-up to a railroad crossing, and ended up airborne for over a hundred feet. The video is impressive, but a little sleuthing can add a lot of precision to the news reports' very rough estimates of the car's speed and flight distance.

Take a look at the video that was posted to YouTube by the residents of a house that caught the incident on security camera:



News reports say the location of the jump was at a railroad crossing on Little Avenue in Barrie, and that the car struck a tree on the property of a public school after losing control following the leap. That's enough information to narrow the event down to a specific stretch of road on Google maps.



If you compare the security camera video to the Google street view, it looks like the Tesla traveled a good deal more than 100 feet. In fact, I'd put the distance at closer to 140 feet (42 meters).

The other bit of info you can get from the video is the duration of the flight. I timed it with my g-shock wristwatch, which has a precision of 0.01 seconds, to about 0.70 seconds total flight time from the moment it leaves the ground at the tracks to the moment it nose-dives into the asphalt.

That's all you need to estimate the Tesla's speed:


Converting that to kilometers per hour:


...which is about 130 mph, for the imperial system fans out there.

A quick trip down Little Avenue on Google street view reveals the speed limit in that area to be 50 kph.

In other words, the car was going 150 kph or so over the legal limit. (Any Mounties reading this post, I'm sure you've already figured this out, but feel free to crib off my math if you still need to calculate the fine.)

Bonus Calculation: How High Did He Fly?

Thanks to Newton, we can also estimate the altitude above the tarmac that the Tesla achieved at the peak of its flight path.

Newton tells us we can calculate the distance an object travels under a constant acceleration (like the acceleration due to gravity) over a certain amount of time. In this case, we know how long it took the Tesla to go from the ground to the peak height of the jump and back to the ground. That's just the 0.70 seconds I measured in the video.

The equation we need to plug the numbers into is one of the kinematic equations—some of the first and most useful tools you'll get under your belt in a physics class! The kinematic equations describe the relationships between time, distance, speed, and acceleration—so they can be rearranged in all sorts of ways to calculate trajectories, velocities, distances, and more! They're also a great intro to the basics of calculus—but that's a whole other can of worms. The equation we need right now is pretty simple; it tells us how far something moves when it's accelerating at a certain rate, for a certain amount of time:
Here, h is the height, g is the acceleration due to gravity (9.8 meters/second2), and t is the time. The asterisks (*) are the multiplication symbol.

Although the whole flight takes about 0.7 seconds, it takes half that to go from from the ground to the maximum height. Similarly, it takes half that time to fall from the maximum height back to the the ground.  Half of 0.70 seconds is 0.35 seconds. Plugging it all in, we find:

...or almost exactly two feet off the ground. If you pause the video midway through the jump, that looks about right.

Thanks to a little algebra and bits of data, we can put some precise numbers to the news. All in all, it was an impressive, and impressively reckless, feat; I can't imagine how horrific it would have been had another vehicle or pedestrian been in the way at the time.

High Performance Red Herring

Many stories about the flying Tesla have noted that it's a high performance electric car that can go from zero to sixty miles per hour in 2.5 seconds. That is indeed a super-car level of acceleration, but it's of no importance to this incident. What mattered was his speed as he launched from the railroad tracks (216 kph, or about 130 mph). My little hatchback could do that, if I were crazy enough to go to Barrie and try it...which I'm not.

          Comment on Tesla Model S Retains Europe’s Top-Selling Large Luxury Car Title by Rolando      Cache   Translate Page      
The ob_session in the USA about the 0-60 acceleration is not shared in Europe, so the most American cherished performance is not important in Europe, more a continued high speed performance is demanded especially in Germany. An expensive car is much of a status symbol of a big brand (MB, BMW, Jaguar) what counts, also the interior quality and in Germany the ob_session with gap free body parts fitting called "Spaltmass". So all comparison is somehow apple vs. pears for example : (1) the exterior size ( > 2x5 meter) ... Ford Taurus ($28k) or Chevy Impala ($29k) are also large size sedans (2) the performance (acceleration, horse-power) ... then compare a Dodge charger hellcat (707hp) for $68k with a Ferrari or Lambo just because of hp ... (3) the price of an EV ... well electric always cost more like Ford Focus ICE starting from $18k versus Electric $29k for example practical valid for all models (Spark, Ioniq, Kona ...) , so when price is the basis then what ? compare a Focus electric with a Taurus or Mustang just because the price tag is $29k .... When adjusting that EV's have a 50% higher list-price (my point 3) plus free supercharger 'juice' which ICE don't have - then adjusting the price for comparison Tesla-S would lead really to a match against A6/7, BMW-5 , MB E-class.

Exactly. In my 120 mile range EV I've charged on public networks about once a month (and some Of those times just because I was stopped enroute anyway rather than I stopped to charge) . In my next car with double that range it may be once or twice a year at most and likely never and certainly never because I have to stop,to charge

They aren't equivalent because you don't need to build the same number of expensive H2 stations. For FCEVS you need, essentially, same number of stations as for ICE, maybe 2x since range is about half that of an ICe. Cost of duplicating existing ICE filling network has been estimated in the trillion dollar range. With EVs you only neeed a small fraction of high cost that since so many "stations" are home, work and destination low cost 3 - 7 kWh chargers which are 1-2% the cost of a rapid chargers. As a specific example, my next EV will likely have a near 300 mile EV range. I might charge away from home perhaps once every few months. If it wasa FCEV it would be once a week, 20-50x more.

But they don't have the battery cell supply, and VW has already admitted publicly that's a serious issue. VW is going to have to invest in building battery cell factories whose output they control, just like BYD and Tesla did. In fact, all the major auto makers are going to have to do so... if they want to remain major auto makers, as the EV revolution progresses. Minor auto makers may be able to rely on independent suppliers. But if they're not aiming to hit 100,000 EVs per year until the mid-2020s, then VW should have plenty of time to build those battery factories. Regarding battery supply, InsideEVs has quoted VW head of group strategy, Thomas Sedran, as saying “The capacity is not there. Nobody has the capacity.” https://insideevs.com/lithium-ion-battery-shortage-looming/

"It’s not really funny at all, any more so than CNBC not covering this years wheat harvest yields* or advances in drilling techniques." You've completely missed the point. CNBC runs Tesla-related news with some frequency... almost all of it negative. It is astonishing just how very biased CNBC is in its coverage of Tesla. At times it steps over the line from merely one-sided to what I would call outright FÜD. I haven't seen any similar bias in coverage at CBS or CNN. I have to wonder just who or what is behind the extreme bias against Tesla at CNBC. :(

All of Tesla's cars currently come from one single factory, too: The Fremont Assembly Plant. But the article has a pretty serious error; it claims Volkswagen "aims to gear up to 100,000 electric vehicles by 2020", while the actual quote from VW says "by mid-2020s". Once again we see even those legacy auto makers most advanced in making EVs, lagging 5-7 years behind Tesla.
          Comment on Tesla’s Response To Hurricane Florence: Free Charging, More Battery by Recoil      Cache   Translate Page      
Hey pretend electric, When hurricane Sandy hit all the gas stations were dry and the debris and damaged roadways kept gas trucks from getting into most of the coastal areas for over a week. It only took 2 days for the electrical service to come back up. That means there were people able to drive their electric cars while those waiting for gas couldn't for another 5 days. Even after the trucks came in the gas was rationed at around 2 gallons per person with incredibly long waits. All the while those with electric cars got to skip all of this and were gassing up at home. You make a lot of uneducated comments but this has to be one of the top 10. Just like it was stated before when the power goes out so does the gas pumps.

Correct, the model 3 will hold 118kw charging speed through 50% SOC, which actually allows it to yield 200 miles in 30 minutes according to some owners if you arrive at 10% SOC at the supercharger. But the real difference between the two vehicles is RANGE. Tesla is still the only manufacturer with a car that can gain 200 miles in 30 minutes AND have over 300 miles of range at highway speed.

El Aston Martin RapidE utilizará un nuevo sistema eléctrico de 800 volts#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000

La euforia alrededor del nuevo Aston Martin Valkyrie es tanta, que a muchos se nos olvida que la marca inglesa también está desarrollando un vehículo con el cual pretende entrar en el segmento de los sedánes eléctricos de lujo. El Aston Martin RapidE será una versión 100% eléctrica de su sedán deportivo, de la que sólo planean construir 155 unidades. La producción limitada le ayudará a la marca a experimentar en un mercado muy competido.

Si estas 155 unidades tienen el éxito que se espera, lo más probable es que veamos un modelo eléctrico completamente original en el futuro, pero Aston Martin es una empresa chica, y tiene que hacer este tipo de movimientos con mucho cuidado. Si lo clientes de la marca no están buscando un auto eléctrico por el momento, tendrán que esperar un poco más, pero para checar justo eso es por lo que se arriesgaron con el RapidE.

Aston Martin Rapide E Teaser 02#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000

Ser pequeños no quiere decir que no puedan innovar. El RapidE utilizará un nuevo sistema eléctrico de 800 volts con una batería de 65 kWh y dos motores eléctricos montados en el eje trasero que le dan 602 caballos de fuerza y 700 lb-ft de torque. Esto le permitirá acelerar de 0 a 100 km/h en menos de 4 segundos y llegar a una velocidad máxima de 250 km/h. Se espera que tenga un rango de 320 km y con un cargador rápido de 50 kW podrá recuperar la suficiente electricidad en una hora para recorrer 300 km, pero gracias al sistema de 800 volts en cargadores de esa naturaleza podrá recargar lo suficiente en una hora para recorrer hasta 500 km.

El auto está siendo desarrollado junto con Williams Advanced Engineering, y una de las metas era lograr que pudiera entregar toda su potencia sin importar la cantidad de carga de la batería, esto quiere decir que podrá dar una vuelta completa al Nürburgring sin sufrir ninguna caída de potencia. Aunque seguirá siendo un Rapide, se hizo un fuerte trabajo aerodinámico en la carrocería y la parte de abajo del auto para optimizar el rango del auto. Por el momento, la marca está comenzando a aceptar “expresiones de interés” por el modelo y se espera que las primera unidades se entreguen a finales de 2019.

Usain Bolt sprinted through thin air and sipped champagne floating on his back as he enjoyed near zero-gravity conditions in an aircraft performing stomach-lurching parabola dives. The eight-times Olympic champion grinned as he experienced weightlessness in the modified plane normally used for scientific research, but on this occasion to showcase a champagne bottle that will allow astronauts to drink bubbles in space. Bolt called it a "mindblowing" experience. "I was nervous but as soon as the first one (parabola) goes you kind of go 'oh my God, what's happening'. But after the third one I was like 'yeah, it's crazy'," Bolt told Reuters TV. The bottle was designed by champagne-maker Mumm. In time the company hopes to capitalise on the advent of space tourism. Billionaires Jeff Bezos, founder of Amazon Inc, and Richard Branson are locked in a race to send wealthy tourists into suborbital space, high enough to see the curvature of the earth. Tesla chief executive Elon Musk has ambitions to send paying passengers around the moon. They may want to toast their adventures.

          Oracle's head of cloud left after butting heads with Larry Ellison, source says (ORCL)      Cache   Translate Page      

Thomas Kurian

  • A source tells Business Insider that 22-year Oracle veteran Thomas Kurian has butted heads with his boss, founder, CTO and executive chairman Larry Ellison.
  • Bloomberg reports that the issue concerns Oracle's strategy on its cloud computing.
  • Kurian may have been advocating for a cloud strategy that is as risky as it is wise.

Last week, the Oracle eco-system was surprised to learn that Thomas Kurian, one of Oracle's longest serving executives in charge of Oracle's all-important cloud business, had left for an extended leave of absence.

Inside Oracle, word is that Kurian's departure was due to butting heads with his boss Larry Ellison, a source tells Business Insider. This person says that Kurian's good-bye was intended as a resignation, although the company says that he has not resigned but is simply "taking some time off. We expect him to return soon," a spokesperson said.

The disagreement seems to have centered on the direction Oracle should take with its bet-the-company cloud computing business, reports Bloomberg.

Sources told Bloomberg that Kurian was pushing Ellison to allow more of Oracle's software to run on clouds that compete with Oracle, particularly market leaders Amazon and Microsoft

If true, this disagreement between the two strategies, and the two men, would not be surprising. Both of them are known for being tough, outspoken and opinionated — characteristics which describe a lot of Oracle's culture.

A page ripped out of the Microsoft playbook

If Kurian is pushing Oracle to embrace multiple clouds — even the clouds of its bitter enemies — the strategy would make a lot of sense.

It's similar to what Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella has done. There was a time when Microsoft's Bill Gates and Steve Ballmer were protectionist about Windows. But, with the rise of cloud computing, Nadella recognized that the world had changed.

Satya NadellaIt became far less important to push people to use Windows than to ensure that Microsoft's enormous catalog of software, particularly Office, could run on any device. So, Microsoft built out its cloud to serve up Office 365 to run on any device; it made sure that its Windows Server software could run on other clouds; and it embraced competitive software, like Linux, on its own cloud.

That way, Microsoft makes money when customers run its software on a competitive cloud (they still have to buy the software) or when they run a competitor's software on their own cloud (they have to pay for Microsoft cloud usage).

Oracle is in a similar quandary but with one key difference: Amazon has become a major threat to Oracle.

Amazon isn't just trying to get Oracle's customers to bring Oracle software to Amazon Web Services (which they can already do), it's trying to get customers to ditch Oracle's database and use Amazon's database instead. Amazon even built a tool to make it easier to move from an Oracle database to an Amazon one. Microsoft also has its own database and has been a bitter competitor with Oracle for years.

So Ellison has been building an Oracle cloud that competes with Amazon (and Microsoft) insisting Oracle's cloud is a faster, better way to run the database. If Oracle's customers don't stay within Oracle's own sphere, Oracle could lose them altogether.

The clock is ticking

Larry EllisonThe problem is, Oracle's cloud is years behind Amazon's in terms of features. It will take Oracle billions of dollars and several years to catch-up, if it even can because Amazon is adding features at an ever increasing rate, hundreds or more per quarter. Microsoft is widely considered the No. 2 cloud.

Enterprise customers are choosing their cloud providers now, based on the features they want and need now.

Oracle may not have years to play catch up. And the person responsible for that catch-up is 22-year Oracle veteran Kurian, and his team. Kurian is the president who heads engineering and product development. About a quarter of the company reports up to him.

There have been signs that Oracle's cloud ambitions are not growing as well as the company wants, too, putting Kurian on the hot seat. Although, to be fair, Oracle is doing a good job in getting many of its customers to sign up for the certain parts of its cloud. They like the cloud versions of its HR, marketing and financial software (similar to how Microsoft moved people from MS Office to Office 365). 

Should Ellison allow more of that software to run on competitors' clouds? And should it partner with its rivals (assuming such partnerships were an option) to run their software on its own cloud?

Probably yes. Other would-be Amazon competitors have either been crushed (Rackspace) or forced to eat crow and partner up (VMware). Once VMware got past the bitter taste, its partnership with Amazon has proved fruitful, filling a need with enterprise customers who want their datacenters to work better with the Amazon cloud (and making Amazon more of a beast, in the process).

But there's no question it's risky, and Ellison certainly wouldn't be crazy for being wary.

Oracle declined comment.

          The Tesla of China fails to raise the $1.8 billion it targeted in its US IPO (NIO)      Cache   Translate Page      

William Li China Nio

  • Chinese electric-car startup Nio, known as the Tesla of China, debuted for trading in the US on Wednesday.
  • Nio, backed by Chinese tech giant Tencent, failed to raise the $1.8 billion it targeted during its initial public offering.
  • Nio's fundraising is an example that shows China's ambition to become a dominant global electric-vehicle producer, Reuters says.

Chinese electric-car startup Nio, which has been touted as the Tesla of China, went public in the US on Wednesday, weeks after Tesla CEO Elon Musk openly said  he was considering taking his company private.

Shares of Nio debut with a sell-off, opening at $6 apiece or 4.2% below its initial-public-offering price of $6.26. The company raised $1 billion from the offering, falling short of the $1.8 billion target it had set.

iQiyi, known as the Netflix of China, is still the biggest US listing by a Chinese firm this year. iQiyi raised $2.42 billion from a Nasdaq IPO in March. Pinduoduo, an online group discounter, is the second largest at $1.63 billion. 

Nio, backed by Chinese tech giant Tencent, was founded by William Li in November 2014 as NextCar and changed its name in July 2017. Tencent, its largest investor, beneficially owns all the Class B ordinary shares and represents 21.5% of the voting power. Li retains 14.5% of the business and 48.3% of the voting power, according to Bizjournals, citing the electric-car maker's filing.

Nio's public fundraising shows China's ambition to become a dominant global electric-vehicle producer as the nation bids to reduce vehicle emissions, produce high-tech industries, and compete with the likes of Tesla and other electric-car makers, Reuters says. It notes that other electric-car makers in China, such as WM Motor Technology Co and Xpeng Motor, have also raised billions from heavyweight investors including tech giants Alibaba, Baidu, and Tencent.

While Nio just started trading in the US, its competitor Tesla has been under pressure since Musk tweeted on August 7 that he was considering taking his company private at $420 a share and had "funding secured." He later reversed course, but his tweets triggered a Securities and Exchange subpoena and relentless attacks from investors betting against the company.

No need to get personal. While it's not logical that the recent drama around Elon, entirely unrelated to Tesla's ability to make a profit, would affect Nio's valuation, investors are not exactly known for always being rational... Frankly, talk about a 20 billion valuation for Nio was just totally absurd. Tesla didn't get that kind of valuation until *after* the Model S became a runaway success. Nio's prospects at this point are not nearly as certain. On top of unclear demand, they haven't even started facing the biggest challenge, that is doing their own mass manufacturing. Interestingly, Bloomberg (IIRC) posted an article showing a way less rosy outlook for Nio just a few days ago; while in the past, almost all reporting on Nio (and other Chinese EV start-ups) in "western" media were raving about them, as if they already achieved major success, and would be cornering Tesla and other established makers any day now... I'd say people actually starting to take a serious look at Nio's situation before making investments, is what brought down the valuation to more realistic levels. (The biggest eye-opener for me was that Nio outsourcing initial production was not in fact a display of strategic planning, as I had assumed thus far, but rather borne out of necessity, because they don't actually have a manufacturing license yet...)

From what I have read, Value does better in strong economies than weak economies. This is because Value companies tend to be more highly leveraged and have more volatile earnings. That is what the academics say anyway. Thing is, the economy is going great right now and Large Growth is still outperforming. I have been pounding the table four years now for Large Value but the markets won't listen. The economy is strong and the markets still won't listen. This is what I mean that asset classes have no obligation to behave the way we think they ought to.



We ought to be in Value Heaven right now. Value is doing okay but growth is doing even better. I remember also that Growth outperformed Value too in the 1990's, when the economy was also pretty strong. So this kind of stuff makes me wonder if I know anything at all.



You have raised a great question. That is a subtle way of saying I don't have the answer.


1. it's a low inflation world. Companies with pricing power are going to get higher PE ratings than companies without. With the possible exception of tobacco, most value stocks don't have any pricing power. Think GE and all its problems.



Nedsaid: Pricing power is an excellent point. I think with greatly increased foreign competition over the years, US companies in general have less pricing power than in the past. Wal-Mart can always by-pass more expensive US products and buy directly and more cheaply from foreign suppliers.



Certain tech companies seem to have maintained their pricing powers as they have limited competition.


Wal-Mart was first but the "outsource to China" just doesn't work as well any more. Chinese labour costs have risen very fast. In fact, the markets want to devalue the currency, reflecting that decline in competitiveness, but the government is fighting very hard to prevent that - for reasons of prestige and also to avoid an all-out trade war (not just with USA).



There are other countries of course - Vietnam in particular. Much lower wages and the infrastructure is getting there.



I think Amazon is now taking on that price dropping role. Every consumer facing business is, to some extent, competing with the Amazon channel.



Inflation is not eroding the debt loads of highly leveraged companies -- again that tends to work against value stocks.



Nedsaid: I would say that inflation feels like it is ticking up. Housing and healthcare are a couple areas I have seen inflation pressures. Objectively, harder to say, feelings are not facts. Other things keep falling in price too, particularly with such things as consumer electronics. The laptop I am typing on cost only about $400 a couple of years ago. I have spend probably 2/3 more on software for it, mostly Office 365 and security software.


It's an old problem. CPI-U is just an average. MIT had the "billion price project" using internet sampling which seemed to show that CPI-U roughly tracked prices they could find on the internet. But things like healthcare are not as easy to track - and it's a major major cost for American households. Housing also is an area of huge assumption/ adjustment in price indices.



The functionality of things like smartphones keeps rising (hedonic improvements). Conversely the price of my (2 year, they don't do 18 months any more) mobile phone contract has risen for the first time.



2. a lot of value stocks are financial services. Financial services is still feeling the effects of the Great Financial Crisis -- investors don't trust the earnings. In addition, regulation is a lot higher which lowers margins (increased costs, restrictions on what you can do) but also lowers Return on Equity (you need more regulatory capital).



Nedsaid: This is a problem with Value investing. You see a concentration in certain sectors. Right now it is Financial and Energy. Thus I say that I am Value oriented than strictly Value. One reason being is the pricing power you discussed in your first point. So I am also concerned with Quality. Fine Cuban cigars bought at a discount rather than picking up cigar butts for a last few puffs. The problem is that cheap can indefinitely remain cheap, you need some sort of catalyst to drive prices higher.


Energy companies have no pricing power. The price of oil & gas is what it is, it's all about whether you can transport it economically to market.



3. most importantly, the torrid pace of technology-induced change has not slowed down. When you have Amazon (half of all USA online sales apparently) growing in leaps and bounds, Google taking away your advertising revenue and branding power, Apple sucking up the consumer's dollar, etc, then things are tough.



It's not so much that Value is weak as it is that Growth is strong. Some companies continue to make record earnings, record profits growth, record sales growth -- particularly the consumer facing big tech companies. Apple is the most profitable company in human history in absolute terms. Google is arguably the most powerful.



Nedsaid: You have made a good point that the world has changed and perhaps forever. Maybe Value has seen its day and perhaps Growth is the place to be. I don't buy this argument but it does have power to it.


I never believe that. But I do remember the 1990s when Growth outperformed Value for something like 9 years straight. We are not yet to the excesses of the dot com bubble in terms of growth valuations.



There will be some moment of correction - I just don't know when ;-).



Those sales and profits came at the expense of other businesses. Think telecoms where the old fashioned fixed line businesses are getting killed - under 30s, from my polling, don't seem to have land lines-ever. And the mobile companies in turn have not been the big beneficiaries of the moves to aps-- it's Apple and co who have taken the cream of that crop.



Nedsaid: We are seeing this with Amazon. It has just killed off the bookstores. B. Dalton is long gone as is Walden. Borders is long gone too and I mourn its passing. The day of getting a latte and leisurely browsing books is pretty much gone. Barnes and Noble is still around but they took out a lot of the couches. Too much browsin' goin' on out they-a. They want sales and not browsing and have given their customers the big hint. So that experience you used to get in a bookstore is gone.




The market is making (so far) a rational view of the transforming power of technology. And who the winners are (among the choice of quoted companies; Google and Facebook et al are running around trying to buy up all the private small companies that one day might disrupt their business franchise).



Nedsaid: We need Teddy Roosevelt and the trustbusters again.


And you see the pressure points. Netflix and Amazon are bidding up the price of content - eating their own margins. At some point this comes back to haunt them.



There are bubbles. Pre IPO "Unicorn" tech stocks. Tesla. I'd throw in Canadian banks (Steve Eisman agrees with me, so we must be right ;-)). Bitcoin, which almost defined the financial term "bubble" - the canonical example.



Other place to watch is luxury and branded goods, generally. Burberry does something like 60% of its sales in Asia? They have ridden the China boom all the way up - what if 1.4 billion Chinese all need a Burberry raincoat? ;-) The last couple of years have seen the challenges of that growth emerge - when austerity becomes a fashion in China.



There are always excesses in these periods of loose money and economic expansion. At some point that will come back to bite us.



Nedsaid: I don't think we are in a stock bubble. If there was a bond bubble, that seems to be deflating a bit. Real Estate in a few areas of the United States, including where I live might be in bubble territory. Signs that my local Real Estate market might be starting to cool.

[/quote]

[/quote]



There are various signs US economy is cooling but I must admit it doesn't feel like a recession is starting. But I am not on the ground.



It might be some external geopolitical event that changes the mood. I am thinking a la August 1990 when Saddam invaded Kuwait. In retrospect that was the beginning of the Bull Market (the first bomb falling in Operation Desert Storm in January 1991) but at the time it felt just terrifying.



The US economy had already been in trouble due to the end of the 1980s excesses and the S&L Debacle which sent (along with a low oil price) a number of economies into recession almost depression (thinking Oklahoma & Texas; Southern California due to wind-down of Cold War arms spending-- remember the (excellent) Michael Douglas film "Falling Down"? Where he plays a laid off defence worker?).



Overlaying this is massive structural change. Web based things like Amazon, the Cloud etc. are causing vertiginous rates of change in every industry. And my sense is it hasn't really hit financial services, yet. But there's an industry where Artificial Intelligence could have a truly huge impact. Also what does Amazon do in Financial Services?

What the article leaves out (and what was covered in the news when this made its rounds a few days ago in the European press) is that not only Tesla is subject to this hack but also other car and motorcycle manufacturers. It was hinted that more chips than this one could show the same issue. What is also missing from the article is the information that Tesla had reacted to the breach in July 2018 already, I cannot remember if June or July was the month when new vehicles had a better system installed. Anyway, a software update for Tesla vehicles was release (I think) last year addressing issues like this that requires a PIN-to-drive (you have to enter a pin in order to start the vehicle, without that patch the hacked key could be used to actually steal the car, not just everything from inside it). There has been a lot of additional coverage on the story in the European press - just do a quick google, it is easy to find, since this has been widely discussed.

          Thabang Mashologu: An $8.7 Billion Shared Investment: Sizing the Economic Value of Eclipse Community Collaboration      Cache   Translate Page      

What is the value of the code contributed by the Eclipse community? Inspired by a 2015 Linux Foundation study of the value of open source collaboration, we estimate that the roughly 162 million total physical source lines of code in Eclipse repositories represent an $8.7 billion USD shared technology investment by our community.

Open source has won because no single company can compete with the rate and scale of disruptive innovation delivered by collaborative ecosystems. In this post, I’ll share the details of our analysis of the economic value of open collaboration under the Eclipse governance model. As borne out by our experience, industry collaboration done properly delivers broad benefits to the ecosystem, including increased business agility, margin preservation, and the riskless sharing of intellectual property. 

The Strategic Value of Eclipse Collaboration

Delivering sustainable software innovation at scale requires an economic investment that is unlikely to be shouldered by one company alone. Industry leaders like Bosch, Google, Amazon, and many others have embraced this reality. Increasingly, collaboration is viewed as a basis for competitive advantage. 

The thinking goes like this: working with other industry players — even your fiercest competitors — on technology below the value line frees up scarce organizational resources to focus on delivering differentiating features faster, thereby igniting revenue growth. By pooling the development effort associated with commodity or backend capabilities, open source participants can save on headcount expenses, lower their development costs, and mitigate business risk by accelerating the market adoption of technologies and standards.

Consider mature industries faced with commoditization of traditional differentiators like the automotive and telecommunications sectors, where incumbents are squeezed by declining profits and the entry of digital-native disruptors like Tesla and Google. Collaborative development done right enables margin preservation and IP sharing without the threat of antitrust and regulatory challenges.

There are plenty of real-world examples of fierce industry rivals collaborating on open source. At the Eclipse Foundation’s openMDM Working Group, BMW, Daimler, Volkswagen, and other automotive OEMs and supply chain partners collaborate on open technologies for the management of standardized measurement data. In the cloud space, Alibaba, Amazon, Google and Microsoft are members of the Cloud Native Computing Foundation. Commercially-friendly OSS foundations provide the even playing field for everyone to frictionlessly work together on sustainable technology, while managing risk, and extracting value.

The Eclipse Foundation has a proven track record of enabling open collaboration and innovation earned over 15 years. The Eclipse Working Groups provide an open and vendor-neutral governance framework for individuals and organizations to engage in collaborative development. Combined with efficient development processes and rigorous intellectual property services, the end result is clean code that is readily built into commercial products. In essence, we help the Eclipse community deliver open source code that works and scales in the real world.

What’s in a Number?

My colleague Benjamin Cabé recently shared the detailed methodology behind the count of 162 million total physical source lines of code contributed to 330 active Eclipse projects in 1,120 Git repositories (as of August 1, 2018). The goal of our economic analysis was to assess the value to the ecosystem delivered by Eclipse projects. 

The creation of the original Eclipse project was announced in a 2001 IBM press release as a contribution of $40 million of software. At the time, the Eclipse community already involved more than 150 leading software tool suppliers and over 1,200 individual developers from 63 countries.

The Eclipse ecosystem is now supported by over 275 members and more than 1,550 committers. By sizing the software development effort to recreate the R&D effort over the last 14 years and now available to all, we can estimate the value provided to everyone who consumes these projects, including companies shipping this open code in commercial products.

The findings are remarkable:

  • Using Barry W. Boehm’s well-regarded Basic Constructive Cost Model (COCOMO), the total amount of development effort required to rebuild the R&D available to all is an estimated 59,246 person-years.
  • It would take 1,700 developers about 35 years to rebuild the 162 million total physical source lines of code in the Eclipse code repositories.
  • The total economic value of this work is estimated to be $8.7 billion
  • Coming in at 2.93 million lines of code, the development costs of Eclipse IoT projects total about $128 million.

Breaking Down the Math

Here are the detailed results of our analysis:

  Value Notes
Total Physical Source Lines of Code (SLOC) 162,582,158 Within the Eclipse repository as of August 2018
Thousands of Source Lines of Code (KSLOC) 162,582 (KSLOC = SLOC / 1,000)
Development Effort Estimate, Person-Years (Person-Months) 710,948 (59,246) (Basic COCOMO model, Person-Months = 2.4 * (KSLOC**1.05))
Schedule Estimate, Years (Months) 35 (418) (Basic COCOMO model, Months = 2.5 * (person-months**0.38))
Development Team Size 1,699 (Team Size = Effort/Schedule)
Total Estimated Cost to Develop $8,735,111,546 USD

Average salary = $102,470 / year, overhead dividend = 0.695

(Total Estimated Cost = Schedule Estimate, Years * Development Team Size *  $102,470 / 0.695)


Model Assumptions and Limitations:

  • Salary and fully loaded costs used are courtesy of the US Bureau of Labor Statistics (March and August 2018 data). The Linux Foundation’s 2015 study used $95,280 per year for the median software developer salary and a 0.693 fully-loaded overhead factor.
  • The model assumes all the software development would occur in the US. Clearly software development is global, and labor costs would vary accordingly.
  • It is assumed that all lines of code have equal value. This ignores the differences in languages, functionality and quality of the code. While counting lines of code allows an estimation of the development effort required to recreate the code within these projects, the languages, problems being solved, and the resulting code within the various Eclipse projects is quite varied. Arguably, better measures of value and derived benefits are the potential or measured impact to the ecosystem and end users.
  • The figures above do not include the value of the Eclipse intellectual property services. Thus the value of code of IP cleanliness — a major factor for companies building commercial products — is not captured.
  • Certain Eclipse projects, most notably the Eclipse Modeling, include code generation capabilities. For instance, the Eclipse Modeling Framework (EMF) project is a modeling framework and code generation facility for building tools and other applications based on a structured data model. Modeling accounts for 27.1 million out of the 162 million total lines of code. See the analysis by Eclipse project below for additional context.
  • This analysis focuses on net additions to the code base. Thus, the amount of effort tied to deleting and changing the code (not to mention modifying dependent code) is not captured in the estimate. 
  • For consistency with the studies by David Wheeler and The Linux Foundation respectively, the line counting approach ignores blank lines and comments. The case can be made that this approach undervalues code readability and maintainability.
  • The analysis assumes the same COCOMO complexity factors and development constants used by Wheeler et al. in their studies.

Collaboration in the Real World

The massive shared code investment by the Eclipse community is a testament to the power of collaboration. More than 275 organizations and thousands of developers globally have contributed to the creation of billions of dollars of software value for the ecosystem to leverage. The Eclipse Foundation is proud to support these collective efforts.

          特斯拉最大机构投资者:SEC已就马斯克私有化推文发出质询      Cache   Translate Page      

腾讯科技徐 9月13日消息,据外媒报道,特斯拉电动汽车公司(Tesla)最大机构投资者于美国当地时间周三表示,美国证券交易委员会(SEC)已经就伊隆·马斯克(Elon Musk)已经放弃的私有化计划向其提出质询,并称这位首席执行官在继续管理公司时需要协助。

持有特斯拉股份的苏格兰抵押贷款投资信托公司基金经理詹姆斯·安德森(James Anderson)表示:“马斯克需要帮助,我指的是他在心理上和实际中都需要帮助。”

安德森表示,他已经和马斯克谈过引入另一位高管的想法。分析师们始终在呼吁特斯拉为最高管理层增加一名首席运营官或其他新鲜血液。

特斯拉没有对此置评,其股价在午后交易中上涨3.1%,此前曾一度上涨4.5%。美国证券交易委员会官员也未予以回应。

对于特斯拉及其首席执行官而言,过去几个月显得混乱不堪。当特斯拉正努力提高大众车型Model 3的产量时,马斯克8月7日在推特上表示,他正在考虑以每股420美元的价格将公司私有化,而且“资金有保证”。

但在8月24日晚间,马斯克“资金有保证”推文的真实性受到美国证券交易委员会的审查时,他以投资者的抵制为由,在博客中宣布,特斯拉将继续保持上市状态。

安德森说,马斯克打算接受更多帮助来运营公司。他曾向马斯克表示,乱发推文“不是什么好事儿”。他还补充称,苏格兰抵押贷款投资信托公司始终在与美国证券交易委员会就马斯克的提议和融资声明进行讨论。

安德森在接受采访时称:“我不知道他们会拿他怎么办,但这并不意味着我们做错了什么。我认为,他们很自然地想知道,大股东们是否对Twitter上有关‘资金保证’的内容有过任何先导暗示或了解。”

另外两家最大的特斯拉机构股东T. Rowe Price Group和富达投资(Fidelity Investments)均拒绝就是否与美国证券交易委员会讨论过特斯拉私有化事宜置评。安德森说他已经和马斯克谈过两次了,并且正在安排与公司董事会的谈话。

安德森补充说,媒体对马斯克私有化评论的报道,并没有动摇他对特斯拉或其“非凡”首席执行官的信念。他表示:“我们认为,特斯拉很有可能证明自己是一家利润极其丰厚、具有竞争优势的公司,能够产生高额回报。”

马斯克此前宣称,特斯拉有望在今年下半年实现盈利。安德森表示,特斯拉可能需要筹集更多资金,并在未来几个月对其需求有更好的了解,而他将支持马斯克的这一举措。(编译/金鹿)

          发起最快算力挑战,「英伟达」发布其最快GPU产品 Tesla T4       Cache   Translate Page      

今天,人工智能计算公司「英伟达」发布了最新的GPU产品——Tesla T4(T代表Nvidia的新图灵架构)。

「英伟达」Tesla T4

这次推出的新产品主要用于机器学习和数据推理,对现在广泛使用的 P4 图形处理器有很大的革新。当前,几乎所有的大型云计算供应商都能够提供 P4 GPU,而「英伟达」想要将技术推到更新的一代。Tesla T4 的配置,总共有320个图灵张量内核和2560个CUDA核心。

「英伟达」表示,谷歌将是首批运用 T4 GPU 的公司,该技术将推向谷歌的云平台。「英伟达」Tesla T4 的速度明显快于 P4。例如,对于语言推理能力来说,T4 比使用 CPU 要快34倍,比使用 P4快3.5倍。


最重要的是,Tesla T4 是「英伟达」专门为人工智能推理设计的。公司副总裁、数据中心业务的副总裁 Ian Buck 表示,Tesla T4 之所以能如此高效地进行人工智能推理,是因为它的新图灵张量核心。「英伟达」CEO 黄仁勋谈及张量核心,说它不仅能服务于游戏、渲染,还可以用来做计算机推理。

除了这个新的芯片,「英伟达」还推出了一款用于优化深度学习模式的 TensorRT 软件。TensorRT 推理服务器,这是一种完全集成化的数据推理服务,无缝地插入到现有的 Kubernetes设施中。


Tesla T4 的运算能力

「英伟达」正在与微软进行合作,后者使用的是「英伟达」的芯片开发AI功能,如微软小娜(Cortana)和必应(Bing)中的语音和脸部识别。而据外媒报道,华为可能与英伟达展开了竞争。微软正与华为讨论合作事宜,考虑在微软中国数据中心使用华为新开发的人工智能芯片。


D²NN 设备识别文本

延伸开来看,一个有趣的科技进展是,可能会取代 GPU 的未来技术也来了。近日,科学研究人员开发了一种用光速实现深度学习的技术——衍射深度神经网络(D²NN)。这项技术是加州大学洛杉矶分校的研究人员发明的,他们使用 3D 打印打造了一套 “全光学” 人工神经网络,可以分析大量数据并以光速识别目标,而且准确率相当高,网络构建成本不足50美元。这项技术日前发布于重要的科学期刊 Science。


          偷走一辆特斯拉 Model S 需要多久?答案是几秒       Cache   Translate Page      

编者按:汽车联网之后,虽然“智能”了,但相对来说也变得易受攻击了。近日,《连线》杂志网站上发表了一篇文章,报道了比利时KU Leuven 大学一组研究人员的研究成果,凭借大约600美元的无线电和计算机设备,他们就可以无线读取附近特斯拉车主的钥匙发出的信号。 只需不到两秒钟的计算,就可以克隆钥匙的密钥,并悄无声息地偷走相关的汽车。作者为ANDY GREENBERG

特斯拉已经采取了许多创新措施,来保护与其汽车配套的驾驶系统免受数字攻击。它雇佣了顶尖的安全工程师,频繁推送互联网上的软件更新,并增加了代码完整性检查。但是一个学术黑客团队现在发现,特斯拉的Model S在一种直接的黑客攻击面前毫无抵抗之力:在几秒钟内,就能秘密克隆汽车的钥匙卡,然后打开车门,开车离去。

周一,比利时 KU Leuven 大学的一组研究人员计划在阿姆斯特丹举行的加密硬件和嵌入式系统会议上发表一篇论文,揭示一种用于破坏特斯拉 Model S 豪华轿车无线密钥密码的加密技术。凭借大约600美元的无线电和计算机设备,他们就可以无线读取附近特斯拉车主的钥匙发出的信号。 只需不到两秒钟的计算,就可以克隆钥匙的密钥,并悄无声息地偷走相关的汽车。“今天,我们很容易在几秒钟内克隆出这些关键的密钥,”Leuven大学研究人员之一的 伦纳特·沃特斯(Lennert Wouters)说。“我们可以完全模拟钥匙的密码,打开并驾驶车辆。”

就在两周前,特斯拉推出了Model S的新防盗功能,包括设置PIN码的功能,必须有人在仪表板显示器上输入密码才能驾驶汽车。特斯拉还表示,今年6月以后销售的Model S不会受到攻击,因为它针对KU Leuven的研究对密钥卡加密进行了升级。但是,如果之前制造的Model S的车主不打开那个PIN——或者不付钱用加密程度更高的版本替换他们原来的版本——研究人员说他们仍然容易受到钥匙克隆方法的影响。

王国的钥匙

像大多数汽车无钥匙进入系统一样,特斯拉Model S的加密密钥向汽车发送基于密钥的加密代码,以进行解锁,从而允许汽车引擎启动。经过9个月的断断续续的逆向工程工作,KU Leuven团队在2017年夏天发现,由一家名为Pektron的制造商制造的特斯拉Model S无钥匙进入系统只使用了一个微弱的40位密码来加密这些密钥代码。

研究人员发现,一旦他们从任何给定的密钥上获得两个代码,他们可以简单地尝试所有可能的密码钥匙,直到他们找到解锁汽车的钥匙。然后,他们会运算代码,找到所有可能的密钥组合,以创建一个庞大的、6TB的预先计算键表。有了这张表和这两个代码,黑客们说他们可以在1.6秒内找到正确的密钥。

在概念验证攻击中(点击此处观看视频),研究人员展示了他们的无钥匙进入系统黑客技术,包括一个Yard Stick One无线电收发设备、一台Proxmark无线电收发设备、一台Raspberry Pi小型机、他们预先计算的便携式硬盘上的密钥表和一些电池。

首先,他们使用Proxmark无线电收发设备来获取目标特斯拉锁定系统的无线电ID,这是汽车随时广播的。然后黑客在受害者钥匙链的大约3英尺范围内转动无线电收发设备,用汽车的ID欺骗了钥匙链上的“挑战”。他们连续快速地做了两次,用响应代码欺骗钥匙链,然后研究人员记录下来。然后,他们可以在硬盘的表格中运行这一对代码,找到潜在的加密钥匙——这让他们能够伪装一个无线电信号,解锁汽车,然后启动引擎。

研究人员说,由于Pektron钥匙链系统相对较弱的加密技术,整个攻击链是可能的,“这是一个非常愚蠢的决定,”KU Leuven研究员托梅尔·阿什尔(Tomer Ashur)说。“有人搞砸了。”

KU Leuven的研究人员说,他们在2017年8月告诉了特斯拉他们的发现。研究人员说,特斯拉承认了他们的研究,感谢他们,并为他们的工作支付了10000美元的“Bug赏金”,但是直到6月份对加密技术的升级和最近PIN码功能的添加,它解决了加密问题。

特斯拉在给《连线》的一份声明中表示,这是因为需要时间确认研究人员的工作,测试修复程序,并将其整合到它们的制造过程中。“由于越来越多的方法可以用来盗窃多种带有被动进入系统的汽车,而不仅仅是特斯拉,我们已经推出了一些安全增强措施来帮助我们的客户减少未经授权使用他们车辆的可能性,”特斯拉的一位发言人在给《连线》的一封信中写道。“基于这个团队提出的研究,我们与我们的供应商合作,通过在2018年6月为Model S引入更强大的加密技术,使我们的密钥链更加安全。所有Model S相应软件的更新涵盖拥有6月前生产的汽车的客户,如果他们愿意,可以升级新的软件。”该公司还指出,你可以在手机上追踪一辆特斯拉,这将使找到被盗的车辆变得相对容易。

研究人员认为,他们的攻击也可能对McLaren和Karma和销售的汽车和Triumph销售的摩托车有效,它们也使用Pektron的钥匙链系统。但是他们无法拿到这些车辆来进行测试。Karma和Triumph都没有回应《连线》的置评请求,Pektron本身也没有回应。McLaren表示,它仍在调查这一问题,但正在提醒其客户潜在的盗窃风险,并向他们提供免费的“信号屏蔽袋”,当他们不使用时,这些袋会屏蔽他们的密钥的无线电通信。McLaren发言人写道:“虽然这种潜在的方法没有被证明会影响我们的汽车,并且被认为是低风险的,而且我们不知道有任何McLaren汽车被这种或之前报道的‘中继攻击’方法偷走,但是我们非常重视我们汽车的安全性和客户的担心。”

如果其他制造商真的受到影响,除了把钥匙放在那些“信号屏蔽袋”之外,他们如何解决这个问题还远不清楚。研究人员表示,这些公司可能必须更换每一个易受攻击的钥匙链,并向受影响的车辆推出软件更新。与特斯拉同,特斯拉的汽车可以无线更新,这对于其他制造商的汽车来说可能无法做到这一点。

警告信号

尽管围绕着如何防止袭击的问题,KU Leuven的阿什尔(Ashur)认为,为了向特斯拉和其他汽车制造商施压,保护他们的客户免遭盗窃,披露出这一漏洞是必要的。既然特斯拉增加了一个PIN功能,它也作为一个警告,提醒特斯拉车主应该打开这个功能,以防范一种极度简单的偷车方法。除了PIN,特斯拉还允许Model所有者禁用钥匙链的被动输入,这意味着驾驶员必须按下钥匙链上的按钮才能解锁汽车。这也将阻碍KU Leuven的攻击。阿什尔说:“如果这种攻击方式存在,我们不是世界上唯一能够找出它的人。”

多年来,黑客已经证明了对无钥匙进入系统进行所谓的中继攻击是可能的,欺骗汽车的无线电信号以从其钥匙链上获得响应,然后实时重放该信号到汽车的锁定系统。在某些情况下,黑客们通过放大钥匙的无线电信号,或者通过将一个无线电设备靠近对方来缩小汽车和受害者的钥匙链之间的距离,来阻止这些攻击。这些中继攻击已经被用来阻止汽车盗窃,尽管由于缺乏证据,目前还不清楚有多少起。中继攻击盗窃无疑是特斯拉增加其PIN预防措施的动机的一部分,不管KU Leuven的研究如何。

但是即使是那些中继攻击也只允许偷车贼欺骗受害者的钥匙一次。即使他们设法把车开走了,他们也无法解锁或重新发动它。相比之下,KU Leuven的攻击允许小偷永久克隆受害者的钥匙,这样他们就可以永久解锁并驾驶汽车。“基本上,我们可以做中继攻击所能做的一切,甚至更多,”沃特斯说。

随着这种危险的钥匙克隆方法现在被公开,任何拥有易受攻击Model的人打开特斯拉新增加的PIN功能或者禁用被动输入都是明智的。在启动汽车前,在汽车仪表板上输入四个数字,或者按着钥匙链上的按钮可能是一件令人烦恼的事情,但这比回到一个空车位要好。

          The real reason Apple is now selling 7 different iPhones at once      Cache   Translate Page      

When most companies launch new products, they usually need to convince people they can't live without them. But Apple has a slightly different problem: How does the most successful company of all time keep on selling iPhones? After all, much of the market is saturated with iPhones already. The challenge now becomes getting iPhones into the hands of those who don't yet have them. And at Apple's Cupertino iPhone event this week, we learned how the company plans to do that: by including more iPhones in its lineup than ever before.

For the first time, Apple is releasing three new phones at once: the iPhone XS, the successor to the iPhone X; the iPhone XS Max, a larger screen version of the XS; and the iPhone XR, a cheaper model that has a lower quality screen and is missing features, like a second camera and 3D Touch. In addition, the company will continue to sell the iPhone 7 and 8, each in two sizes. In other words, Apple will soon be offering seven different iPhones at the same time.

For a company that once prided itself on simplicity, this is a stark turn of events. But behind Apple's ever-expanding lineup and its ever-rising prices is a relentless focus on growth. Ironically, all these new iPhones are preparation for a time when Apple becomes more than just the iPhone company.

The new phones are, like most smartphones these days, sort of boring. They represent minor upgrades that will have only a tiny impact on most users — a little bit of extra speed here, some marginally better photos there. But most interesting is what is happening at both the low and high end of the iPhone line.

At the top end, Apple is doing something remarkable: It is yet again increasing the price of its flagship phone, starting the iPhone XS Max at $1,099. This comes at a time when rivals like Samsung are struggling to increase sales of high-end handsets. It is a testament to Apple's brand power that it can do this, but also signifies the company's need to continually push up the average selling price of its device. By also pricing the Max only $100 more than the XS at $999, Apple is providing a strong incentive for people to jump up to the higher model, pushing up Apple's revenue and profit margins even further.

In contrast, Apple has also introduced a more affordable XR model — though "affordable" is relative here, since the phone costs $749. Still, it is an intriguing gambit because it features the same speed and power and basic camera quality as the higher models at a reduced entry price. But further, Apple is continuing to sell older models, including the iPhone 7 for $449.

Apple's goal — beyond selling more stuff — is to broaden its customer base, shifting away from a focus on more affluent users in the Americas, Europe, and China to those with less disposable income, and people in places like India and South East Asia who have thus far found the premium on Apple products too much to pay. The cheaper phones are an attempt to gain a toehold in the Indian market where Apple has put in significant effort but found little success due to cost and competition. The addition of dual SIM models — popular in Asia where people frequently jump between carriers — only adds to this focus on the continent, and the company is going so far as to include a specific model for China.

The new lineup will likely be wildly successful because it will cater to so many different segments of the market. And as the company sells more phones, it buys more time to figure out how it moves beyond the iPhone. That's key, because right now, the iPhone accounts for two-thirds of the company's revenue, an alarming statistic despite the device's runaway success. By expanding the iPhone lineup, Apple extends its reach and its earning potential so that large, long-term projects have time to gestate. For example, this year alone, Apple has hired a number of former Tesla executives, suggesting an Apple car may still be in the works.

Are the new iPhones a bit plain and ordinary? Sure. But they're a sign that Apple knows it cannot rest on its laurels forever. The phones will likely sell better than ever before, simply by reaching more and more people. And in the meantime, Apple can use its enormous revenue to dream up the next big thing, and it will almost certainly be anything but boring.

iCharge 2.0 by Silver Wing - Trick

"Nikola Tesla would have loved it. Silver Wing's iCharge 2.0 is unique and powerful, it's going right into my strolling show!"
- Martin Lewis

"The very best solution to this plot, and a wondrous thing."
- David Regal

"iCharge 2.0 is a deviously clever device that allows you to perform an effect that is relevant and amazing."
- Shawn Farquhar

iCharge 2.0 is a very clever idea by Silver Wing and takes charging a phone by mentalism to a new level.
We released the iCharge 1.0 version on May 2016. As the item's appearance is the same as an iPhone charger, we named it iCharge 1.0. We still use the name, although the iCharge 2.0 version no longer has the look of a charger.
The previous version required a specific app download in advance, so we could not perform the magic using an audience member's phone. The new iCharge 2.0 version solved this problem perfectly. Now, all you need to do is borrow someone's phone from the audience, and you're ready to perform the effect.
Equally amazing is that the iCharge 2.0 can be practically invisible! Everything needed comes from the spectator's phone and data line.
iCharge 2.0 is an ingenious electronic item -- you do not need any sleights or suspicious props. All you need is iCharge 2.0.

"A clever concept with a lot of potential for magic with electronics!"
- Chris Mayhew

"Come on, still using power banks? Now I use iCharge 2.0 instead."
- Hanson Chien

"I really like it!! A fresh and modern idea!!"
- Julio Montoro

"This is magic for the new generation!"
- Felix Bodden

          HOW DANGEROUS IS THE CORPORATE DEBT / KNOWLEDGE@WHARTON      Cache   Translate Page      

How Dangerous Is the Corporate Debt Bubble?

Former investment banker and author William D. Cohan and Jyoti Thottam, opinion editor for business and economics at The New York Times, talk about the looming corporate debt bubble.

debt bubble


Investors often focus on stock prices to take the temperature of an economy’s health. If share prices are high and rising, they feel upbeat. If price levels sink low, so does investor confidence.

Still, as the 10th anniversary of the Great Recession of 2008 draws nearer, some experts are beginning to worry that a looming bubble in corporate debt poses a danger. “The … domestic debt market – at $41 trillion for the bond market alone – reveals more about our nation’s financial health,” wrote William D. Cohan, a former investment banker, in an op ed in The New York Times earlier this month.

Cohan, author of the recent book, Why Wall Street Matters, believes that the bond market is broadcasting a dangerous message. How serious is this risk? Could the puncturing of the corporate debt bubble spark another recession? What are the dangers of mispriced risk? Cohan joined Jyoti Thottam, opinion editor for business and economics at The New York Times, to speak about these questions and more on the Knowledge@Wharton show on Sirius XM channel 132. (Listen to the complete podcast at the top of this page.)

An edited transcript of the conversation follows.


Knowledge@Wharton: Why do you think it is important to talk about the corporate debt bubble, when everything we see reported about the markets and the economy is portrayed in positive terms?

William Cohan: When everything looks great, we tend to overlook all sorts of crumbs along the trails to trouble, thinking that everything will continue to be great. The stock market is great.

The bond market is great. The economy is booming. The unemployment rate is low. Our President tweets about how great everything is. But if you look underneath the surface, you will see trouble brewing, especially in the bond market. There are a lot of hidden risks.

A lot of the past financial crises and recessions have started in the credit markets because they freeze up. Credit is the lifeblood of our economy and if companies can’t get it, if municipalities can’t get it, if individuals can’t get credit, then they can’t power the economy. People in the bond market think it is safe because there is an obligation on the other side to repay their money. That obligation is there. But people forget that it can be very risky as well. That is why I felt the need to remind them that it can be risky and to show them the crumbs that I am seeing on the pathway.

Knowledge@Wharton: Jyoti, why did you think this was such an important topic?

Jyoti Thottam: One of the things that we wanted to do was to be mindful of what happened in the last financial crisis. There was a sense that there were many warning signs, red flags waving, that people somehow missed. We are on the lookout for those kinds of signs.

Knowledge@Wharton: Given the cycle of issues that we see in the financial sector, could we be facing another significant economic downturn, maybe not today or next month, but in the next 12 or 18 months?

Cohan: Financial crises are part of the human condition. It doesn’t take Wall Street to bring about financial crises; it is part of human nature. I think that America was founded in the midst of a financial crisis, because the federal government couldn’t pay back the debt that it took on to have the Revolutionary War.

As I walk through in Why Wall Street Matters, there’s been a financial crisis pretty much every 20 years in this country since it started. Some are more severe than others, and sometimes there are long periods where there is no financial crisis, especially after regulations tightened considerably after the Great Depression. It was quiescent in the financial markets until the mid-80s. But as a result of investment banks and banks going public and substituting other people’s money for partners’ capital, bankers and traders have been rewarded to take big risks with other people’s money. This has exacerbated financial crises in the last 40 years. They have been getting deeper and more severe.

Thottam: Ben Bernanke [former chairman of the Federal Reserve] was a student of depressions and recessions and what to do after that. He, and everyone else around him, came up with this somewhat novel policy, quantitative easing (QE), which in retrospect perhaps was the right thing to do. One of the things that I felt Bill did really well in his piece was to lay out that we had QE, at some point it had to be unwound, and after so many years of super low interest rates, what is the effect of that? We don’t know. We are going to see that right now.

Cohan: There are a lot of experts who worry about this. Jamie Dimon, the CEO of JP Morgan Chase, is worried about it. James Grant, who is the guru of the bond market at Grant’s Interest Rates Observer, writes about this repeatedly. Jeffrey Gundlach, who runs one of the biggest bond funds on the planet, has worried about this continuously and talked about it.

Knowledge@Wharton: How big a role would the corporate debt bubble play if we were to get into a recession in the next several years?

Cohan: It is hard to know. One never knows what the catalyst is going to be for the next financial crisis. We know that there have been catalysts in the past. But the truth is nobody rings a bell at the top of the market and says, “That’s it. It’s over. It’s been fun, guys. It’s all downhill from here.”

When I was a banker 27 years ago, the management of United Airlines (UAL) was trying to take it private in what was then one of the largest management buyouts of all time. They had got the commitment letter from Citibank to finance that deal. But suddenly Citibank went back to the management and said, we can’t finance this deal, the market is not there for this buyout. This was in 1991, four years after the stock market crash of 1987. It became a huge problem and shut down the credit markets for the next two or three years. The fact that the UAL buyout could not be financed in the market was the signal that the party was over, and that we were now heading into a severe credit crunch.

Anything could be a catalyst. Maybe Tesla trying to go private will be a catalyst for this market shutting down. And that is when real trouble happens. Because people who had nothing to do with it, with the excess, can’t get access to capital.
Knowledge@Wharton: Why do you think the markets have an issue with mis-pricing risk at this point?


Cohan: This goes back to the experiment that Ben Bernanke, the Fed chairman, put in place after the financial crisis in 2008 for the next eight years — the quantitative easing program — which expanded the Fed’s balance sheet from around $900 billion to $4.5 trillion dollars. It was then buying up all kinds of debt securities, from safe treasuries to mortgage-backed securities that were on the balance sheets of these banks. As a result of the combination of wanting to keep short-term interest rates low, and then buying up all of these bonds in the market which forced their prices up, the yields were forced down because bond prices trade in inverse proportion to their yield. The yields of bonds were near zero. Investors, of course, don’t want low yields. They want to find debt instruments that pay them higher and higher yields. So they would bid up the price of other high yielding securities, drive down their yield, and the cycle just continued. You have this continuous eight-year period of mis-pricing risk. That is where I think we are now.

Thottam: It is still unclear if this is going to be bad just for individual companies. Once the pendulum swings the other way, will it be just a handful of individual companies that go bust without affecting the rest of the market? [It is the] same thing with individual countries that may have taken on too much dollar-denominated debt. Is it just those countries, or are they connected? It is very difficult to know at this stage.

Knowledge@Wharton: Quantitative easing helped the banks. But for a lot of smaller businesses, why didn’t it give them a bigger boost to be able to get loans, or for home buyers to get mortgages?

Cohan: Well, because the pendulum swings on the credit underwriting front. Banks go from seeming to have virtually no standards — if you breathe you can get a mortgage, if you breathe you can get a line of credit — to disaster striking, as happened in 2008. And then the credit pendulum swings back the other way. Only the most credit worthy companies, the single A, the double A, the triple A companies can get access to capital, or the private equity funds, or the hedge funds. They can get all of the capital they need. But individual home owners or people who want to buy a home, can’t get [loans]. Small and medium sized businesses which drive so much job creation in this country were basically choked off from the credit markets after the financial crisis. They may still not able to get the capital they need. Home owners may still not be able to get the mortgages to buy homes unless they put down some large percentage in equity.

So you’ve got lots of things going on underneath the surface at the same time. I think the biggest risk is the desire by investors around the world for higher and higher yields. This has forced them to mis-price the bonds that they are buying, the debt that they are buying, the loans that they are buying. They are not getting adequately compensated for the risks that they are taking. And they are willing to forgo all sorts of covenants and other protections.
Knowledge@Wharton: Jyoti, you use the example in the piece that you did on Asurion [technology solutions company], and those covenant light loans, as you called them.

Thottam: That’s right. That was one of the things that really resonated with me. People remember what the mortgage market was like in 2006, 2007 and the loosening of credit standards in the mortgage market in 2008. You see a similar thing now in the corporate debt market.

Cohan: It is not just one isolated industry or a group of companies. This is happening throughout the corporate loan and bond market. A lot of these loans are made by the big banks, but then they are repackaged into securities, and that potential trouble is exported as investments all around the world. That is what happened with mortgage-backed securities in 2005, 2006 and 2007 leading up to the crisis. Something similar, I fear, is happening now. You can’t mis-price risk for eight years and expect no consequences.

Knowledge@Wharton: What about what we are seeing in Turkey right now?

Thottam: You can see it’s that chasing of yield that has been going on in the last few years. Investors are looking for higher yields, not just in the United States, but all around the world. Even if you didn’t have the political conflict between Turkey and the U.S., the underlying problems, the economic problems, were there.

Cohan: Bernanke’s idea of quantitative easing worked well to get our banks back to being healthy and our economy rolling again. And so, central bankers around the world copied what Bernanke did. It is not just mis-pricing of risk that has happened in this country, it has happened with debt securities all around the world.

Knowledge@Wharton: How similar are some of these elements that we are seeing now to what we saw pre-2008?

Thottam: Some of them are similar. For example, the manner in which big pension funds are invested in some of these securities is similar to how they were exposed to mortgage-backed securities in 2008.

Cohan: The biggest investors in the bond markets are mutual funds and pension funds — firefighter pensions, police pensions, teacher pensions, ordinary Americans who probably don’t understand the risks of buying into these risky bonds. One example is the bonds of Toys R Us, which was the biggest toy retailer that KKR [investment firm Kohlberg Kravis Roberts] had taken private. They were trading at near par, nearly 100 cents on the dollar until KKR announced last year that the company was going to go bankrupt. The bonds have lost 95% of their value. That is money that is not coming back. It can’t be recovered.

Knowledge@Wharton: What do you think needs to be done at this point with some of these scenarios?

Thottam: As Bill points out, at the end of the day the people who are putting these deals together are getting paid. So until you change people’s incentives, things are not going to change. In some cases, companies are taking on debt, not to build a new factory or invest in new technology, but to pay fees to their private equity owners. That is not a very productive use of capital. That is something that we have to take a hard look at.

Cohan: Changing what you reward people on Wall Street to do requires great courage, which doesn’t seem to be in the offing. But credit committees exist in all of these firms, and they could definitely tighten up their credit standards.

28000 Hz, azaz 28 kHz szinus frekvencia. Ez egy kísérlet, amin elvileg a 28 khz frekvenciát hallhatsz a fülhallgatódon keresztül. Pontosabban csak az agyad fogja hallani mivel a füleddel csak 18-20 Hz-ig tudjuk direktbe hallani a hangfrekvenciákat. A Youtubera fel sem töltöm, mert náluk csak 18000 Hz-ig támogatják a lejátszást, itt nem tudom mi a helyzet. Nekem viszont nincs lehetőségem ellenőrizni, hogy hitelesen annyi frekvenciát töltöttem e le, mint amit állítottak, de természetesen nem a Youtuberól van a hang. A 28000hz-ról tudni kell, hogy a Boszniai piramisok ilyen jeleket sugároznak folyamatosan a kozmoszba, hogy Nikola Tesla erre a frekvencián állította az adó tornyát, amikor a szabad energiával kisérletezett és ezen a frekvencián érte azt el, hogy a bioszférából több áram sugárzódott vissza, mint amennyi kiment. A levitáció is ezen a frekvencián valósulhat meg. Minél nagyobb a frekvencia, annál rövidebb a bejövő hanghullámok egymás utáni tömörítése (vagy ritkasága) közötti távolság. Ezt a távolságot "hullámhossznak" hívják.

          В мире: Илон Маск оказался капиталистическим хищником      Cache   Translate Page      
Инновационные корпорации США умело создают себе имидж либеральных, продвинутых, гуманных организаций. Но грязный секрет их успеха – жестокая эксплуатация. Многомиллионные прибыли предопределены полным бесправием сотрудников, положение которых подчас хуже, чем сто лет назад. До последнего времени многие не верили, что «Теслы» Илона Маска это тоже может касаться.

Эксцентричный предприниматель Илон Маск вновь оказался в центре скандала. Уволенные сотрудники Tesla рассказали журналистам о том, что руководство компании выступает категорически против вступления в профсоюзы, а любая попытка поговорить на эту тему карается изгнанием – люди, годами находившиеся «на хорошем счету», в одночасье вылетают с работы за эдакую «ересь».

Илон Маск и атмосфера страха

Проведенное прессой расследование вскрыло немало интересного в трудовых практиках компании Tesla. Оказалось, что в «прогрессивной корпорации» к правам трудящихся относятся примерно так же, как сто лет назад.

Деззимонд Вон трудился на фабрике Tesla в Калифорнии. У него был высокий рейтинг (в Tesla прилежание сотрудника оценивают баллами). Его супервайзер писал о нем положительные отзывы и рекомендовал к повышению. Все изменилось, когда Вон заговорил с коллегами о возможности создания профсоюза, а заговорил потому, что у работников заводов Tesla давно накопились претензии к руководству корпорации.

Здесь и высокая травматичность, и недостаточные меры безопасности при работе с роботами. Любое нарушение, опоздание или прогул вели к штрафным санкциям, что понижало рейтинг рабочего и постепенно вело к увольнению. Задумка, может, по-своему разумная, но проблема в том, что правила менялись менеджментом буквально на ходу. Рабочие могли не знать, за что влетят на очередной штраф.

Разумеется, трудовые права проще отстаивать сообща. И однажды Вон пригласил несколько товарищей к себе домой, чтобы за бутылкой пива обсудить с ними саму возможность создания профсоюза. На следующий день кто-то из участников встречи доложил он ней руководству. Задним числом Вону снизили баллы в рейтинге и тут же уволили с формулировкой «за несоответствие профессиональным стандартам».

Товарищи Вона и его супервайзер подтвердили журналистам (правда, на условиях анонимности), что он был отличным специалистом и потерял работу только из-за своей инициативы. «Говорят, сам Маск к идее профсоюза относится нейтрально, – рассказал один из них газете Guardian. – На деле ничего подобного. Стоило заикнуться о профсоюзе – и тебя вышвыривали на улицу».

«У нас тут царит культура страха, – соглашается другой. – Если ты в чем-то не соответствуешь, тебя выгоняют. Множество сотрудников, выступавших за профсоюз, были уволены под надуманными предлогами».

Особенно интересно, что подобная атмосфера царит в корпорации, позиционирующей себя как суперпрогрессивная высокотехнологичная фирма и как компания будущего, ответственная перед обществом. При каждом своем публичном выходе Илон Маск рисует зрителю светлые картины фантастического завтра, однако в отношении своих рабочих действует как замшелый капиталист образца XIX века.

Другое дело, что столь же архаичная ситуация с правами трудящихся сложилась вообще во многих крупных IT-корпорациях.

По вопросу наемного персонала владельцы IT-гигантов подстраховались заранее. Собственно, в этом и заключался их новаторский подход к бизнесу. Персонал делится на элиту – инженеров и программистов, работающих непосредственно в офисах компании, и наемных рабочих, общее число которых может составлять сотни тысяч. Только в Китае на Apple работают более полумиллиона сотрудников.

Лояльность элиты покупается хорошими зарплатами, широко разрекламированными удобствами на рабочем месте и атмосферой гламурной инновационности. Рядовые сотрудники обретаются на другом конце социальной лестницы. Их услуги поставлены на аутсорсинг – наймом занимаются специальные компании-подрядчики, не имеющие отношения к головной корпорации. И обычно они получают почасовую оплату чуть выше минимума по стране.

Но элиту и рабочий класс в составе IT-корпорации объединяет их бесправность. А сотрудник, пытающийся хоть как-то отстаивать свои права, абсолютно беззащитен перед командой юристов прославленной корпорации. В случае конфликта ему грозит не просто увольнение, но и разрушение репутации.

Неудивительно, что в гламурных офисах IT-корпораций царит та же «культура страха», что и на заводах Tesla. Во главе всего этого культа – знаменитый харизматичный руководитель, вокруг него – восторженная массовка. Любое снижение градуса восторженности может закончиться плохо.

Время от времени скандалы из закрытого мирка прогрессивных корпораций проникают наружу – поражают жесткостью по отношению к сотрудникам.

Инновационная эксплуатация

Чемпионом по скандалам является компания Amazon, принадлежащая самому богатому человека мира – Джеффри Безосу. Условия труда работников его складских помещений не раз описывали американские и английские журналисты. Мизерная почасовая оплата, конвейерный стиль работы, не позволяющий ни на секунду отвлечься и передохнуть, запрет на перекуры и разговоры – все это напоминает диккенсовскую потогонку, а не технологичную инновационную компанию.

Если производство вынесено за границы стран «золотого миллиарда», ситуация резко ухудшается. В 2006 году выяснилось, в каких условиях трудятся китайцы, собирающие на местных заводах айподы и айфоны для Apple. Речь идет о работе по 10 часов шесть дней в неделю. Почти все свободное время рабсила вынуждена была проводить в охраняемых общежитиях – выйти на улицу можно только по разрешению начальства. Часть рабочих постоянно контактировали с вредными химическими веществами, обходясь без всяких средств защиты. А зарплата составляла 120 долларов в месяц.

Внимание общественности к этой эксплуатации привлекла череда самоубийств в среде китайских рабочих. Руководство Apple сразу заявило, что во всем виноваты тайваньские подрядчики, владеющие заводом. Тайваньцы подняли рабсиле зарплату на 30%, тем конфликт и исчерпался. Никакого ущерба имиджу Apple эта история не нанесла.

Парадоксально, но немногим лучше сложилась жизнь у американских наемных работников компании Facebook – водителей, уборщиц, официанток в кафетериях. Они получают почасовую оплату чуть выше минимальной в штате Калифорния, а поскольку это самый дорогой штат Америки, не в состоянии снимать жилье. Даже еду им приходится приобретать по талонам на бесплатное питание, которые выдают власти штата. То есть люди, работающие на одну из богатейших корпораций мира, получают от нее столь мало, что вынуждены жить на содержании у государства.

Еще одна кадровая уловка IT-корпораций – объявить работающих на них людей своими бизнес-партнерами. Так поступают, к примеру, Airbnb и Uber. Среди «бизнес-партнеров» насаждается ожесточенная конкуренция. В результате американские шоферы Uber вынуждены работать по 12 часов подряд и спать в машинах на парковках. Разумеется, как «бизнесменам» им не полагается ни медстраховки, ни бюллетеней, ни пенсий, ни отпусков.

Появление профсоюзов с их типовыми трудовыми договорами, понятной сеткой зарплат, обязательными отпусками грозит разрушить бизнес-модель высокотехнологичных корпораций. Поэтому любая попытка объединения сотрудников и блокируется на ранних стадиях.

В 2011 году Кори Молл, работавший продавцом в одном из магазинов Apple в Сан-Франциско, тоже попробовал создать профсоюз продавцов. Сан-Франциско – один из самых дорогих городов США, и зарплата в 14 долларов в час – это буквально «ни о чем». Молл хотел объединить коллег в борьбе за более высокие ставки, дал несколько интервью, однако дальше создания веб-сайта дело не пошло – инициативу торпедировали.

Собственно, в этом и заключается отличие прекариата от пролетариата. Пролетарии вполне успешно организовывались для борьбы за свои права. Прекариат же настолько атомизирован, что запугать или подкупить его легче легкого. Он вообще ничем не защищен от произвола собственников и менеджеров.

Зато прекариат изобретает собственные способы борьбы с эксплуатацией. Череда скандалов с «харрасментом» в крупных корпорациях – это в том числе следствие трудовых споров. Трудовой договор сотрудника большой компании обычно составляется так, что идти в суд после увольнения просто бессмысленно. Высокооплачиваемые юристы заранее предусмотрели все возможные претензии, и работник в любом случае окажется крайним. Но если пояснить суду, что руководство Tesla или Facebook угнетало тебя по гендерному или расовому признаку, появляется шанс на компенсацию. Скорее всего, компания согласится заключить досудебное соглашение, лишь бы не портить имидж столь токсичной темой.

История с Илоном Маском, запрещающим профсоюзы в Tesla, приоткрывает грязный секрет большинства инновационных корпораций.

Их успех основан не только на инновациях, но на жестокой и противозаконной эксплуатации персонала. Однажды об этом предельно откровенно высказался сооснователь Intel Роберт Нойс:

«Обходиться без профсоюзов – это главное условие существования большинства наших компаний. Если бы мы соблюдали все эти профсоюзные правила, то давно уже вылетели бы из бизнеса».
