Seattle Seahawks’ deep dive into analytics starts with a ‘data lake’ built by Amazon Web Services

It’s trendy these days to turn to sports data analytics for a deep dive into how a team is set up to compete and what metrics make the most sense for how players perform in a game. For the Seattle Seahawks, that dive starts with a “data lake” built with Amazon Web Services.

A data lake is a “centralized repository that allows organizations to store, govern, discover, and share all of their structured and unstructured data at any scale,” says Werner Vogels, chief technology officer at Amazon and author of a new blog post that should make any football fan geek out far beyond the X’s and O’s of conventional analytics.

Amazon expanded its partnership with the NFL when it secured a deal with the Seahawks last year to become the team’s official cloud services

The Semiconductor Industry Association, the chip industry lobbying group, gave her the award in an online ceremony today. Normally, the event takes place in San Jose, California, and has about 1,000 attendees.

Su’s award represents the first time the award has gone to a woman since it was started in 1991.

“It’s an incredible privilege to be part of this industry,” said Su. “I actually fell in love with semiconductors in my first year at MIT. My first job was doing grunt work in a semiconductor lab.

The SIA presents the Noyce Award annually in recognition of a leader who has made outstanding contributions to the semiconductor industry in

Uber Shops For Self-Driving Partners Or Even Selling Its Project

Reports in the last two weeks have suggested the Uber
is looking to bring in external partners for their “advanced technology group” or even selling it outright to Aurora, a leading startup. Uber ATG is one of the most unusual — and certainly most controversial — self-driving teams. Strangely, Uber is the company best poised to monetize robocar technology, but also in some ways the one for which ownership of the technology is least essential.

Former Uber CEO Travis Kalanick felt it was essential. Uber is in the business of selling rides (AB5 debate notwithstanding) and many people feel that the business of selling rides will be taken over by the robotaxi. As such it is indeed essential that Uber be on top of that transition. That’s why he started the ATG project, feeling that Uber must own that tech.

General Motors is launching 30 new electric vehicles through 2025 via its Ultium battery platform, but the story and ultimate success revolves around applications and customer experiences.

GeForce Now cloud gaming service is now available as a web app for iPhone and iPad

Cutting corners: The App Store is still a hostile place for cloud gaming platforms, but things seem to be taking a positive turn. Nvidia’s GeForce Now is now accessible through Safari on iOS, and it won’t be long before Microsoft’s xCloud will be available there as well.

Rumors had been circling around that Nvidia was working on a GeForce Now browser client that would allow Fortnite players to experience the game on iOS devices, and give Epic the chance to bypass the App Store entirely.

Today, Nvidia announced it would join other cloud gaming providers such as Microsoft and Amazon in going the web app route to avoid Apple’s strict App Store guidelines that look increasingly like a weapon to wield against competitors as opposed to protecting users.

And that’s not an understatement. It’s how a former App Store exec described it in a testimony for the House antitrust subcommittee,

Facebook sues Turkish software developer who ran 20+ Instagram clone sites


Social media giant Facebook filed a civil lawsuit today against a Turkish national for operating a network of at least 20 Instagram clones.

According to court documents obtained by ZDNet, Facebook claims that defendant Ensar Sahinturk, a software developer based in Istanbul, used automation software running from thousands of Instagram accounts to scrape data from more than 100,000 Instagram profiles, which he later republished on his own sites.

Described as “Instagram viewers,” Sahinturk operated at least 20 clone sites where he listed Instagram photos and made a profit by showing his own ads.

Domains operated by Sahinturk included jolygram.com, imggram.com, imggram.net, finalgram.com, pikdo.net, and ingram.ws, according to court filings.

The earliest domains were created in August 2017, and many of the sites are still active today.

Facebook said it tried to avoid litigation by sending multiple cease & desist letters to Sahinturk in early 2019, but to no avail.
