Six tips to boost your broadband connection: From avoiding mirrors to changing your router's channel

  Six tips to boost your broadband connection: From avoiding mirrors to changing your router's channel Switching providers can be a first step to improving your service, but this might not always be possible and doesn’t guarantee your broadband connection will be improved. This week we reported that three in four households have at least three broadband breakdowns every month, either when the service stops completely or when it is much slower than it’s meant to be.One in 10 households endure an average of 10 outages every month, according to the research from comparison website Comparethemarket, which asked 2,087 adults about their broadband experience.

You don't need exotic radar, infrared or elaborate mesh networks to spot people through walls -- all you need are some easily detectable wireless signals and a dash of AI . From there, the AI could use wireless alone to estimate someone's movements and represent them using stick figures.

You don't need exotic radar, infrared or elaborate mesh networks to spot people through walls -- all you need are some easily detectable wireless signals and a dash of AI. Researchers at MIT CSAIL have developed a system (RF-Pose) that uses a neural network to teach RF-equipped devices to sense people's movement and postures behind obstacles. The team trained their AI to recognize human motion in RF by showing it examples of both on-camera movement and signals reflected from people's bodies, helping it understand how the reflections correlate to a given posture. From there, the AI could use wireless alone to estimate someone's movements and represent them using stick figures.

Lily Allen: 'The #MeToo movement has not hit the music industry'

  Lily Allen: 'The #MeToo movement has not hit the music industry' Lily Allen is not convinced the #MeToo movement against sexual misconduct has dented the music industry yet. The Smile singer insists it's difficult to solve the problem of harassment in the music industry because there is no one to turn to for help.

Unfortunately, this announcement highlighted the issues caused by Sony's refusal to allow console crossplay from the PS4 -- if you've linked an Epic account with PSN, it can't be used on Nintendo's system at all. Google improves Translate with offline AI .

The scientists mainly see their invention as useful for health care, where it could be used to track the development of diseases like multiple sclerosis and Parkinson's. It could also help some elderly people stay in their own homes by sending alerts if they fall or otherwise show signs of trouble. And since the technology is 83 percent reliable for identifying people in large groups (as many as 100 people), it could be helpful for search-and-rescue operations where it's important to know who you're looking for. Refinements could lead to 3D images that reveal even slight movements, such as a shaking hand.

It's hard to escape the potential privacy concerns. This could theoretically be used to spy on nearby buildings, or follow peopl to their destination even if they duck around a corner. However, CSAIL has a privacy solution in mind: it's developing a "consent mechanism" that would require performing specific movements before tracking kicks in. If that safeguard persisted in real-world applications, you wouldn't have to worry about losing your privacy for the sake of convenience.

Apple’s WWDC 2018: Here’s what to expect .
Wondering what to expect at Apple’s WWDC event later today? Let’s start with the most obvious stuff first. iOS 12 is expected to be announced today, but it’s mostly going to bring stability and performance improvements, some health and parental control features, a revamped iBooks experience for reading ebooks, and some ways to cut down on how much time you spend on your phone.
