29/05/2012. CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research, will outline the next stage of its Helix Nebula European cloud computing project at the Cloud Computing World Forum (www.cloudwf.com) on 12 and 13 June, with the aim of increasing participation in the scheme.
The Helix Nebula ‘Science Cloud’, was launched earlier this year to explore the use of commercial cloud computing services within European science organisations.
A number of cloud industry leaders are already involved in the project including HP, Intel, Oracle and Siemens. However, CERN is now looking for wider participation across the IT industry, in a bid to develop innovative solutions to be used by the global community working on the vast amounts of data created by the Large Hadron Collider (LHC).
“The Helix Nebula initiative allows CERN to evaluate cloud computing by going beyond the current-hype,” said Bob Jones, a lead on the project as Head of CERN’s openlab IT department, and keynote speaker at the Cloud Computing World Forum.
New Version Offers Over 250 Dictionaries and Allows Word Translation with the iPhone® Camera
Bracknell, UK (27th June, 2011) – ABBYY, a leading provider of document recognition, document capture, and linguistic technologies and services, today announced the availability of ABBYY Lingvo Dictionaries 2.0 for iOS, a comprehensive dictionary and translation application for Apple® mobile devices. The solution brings to market a new photo translation function that allows users to translate words by photographing them with the iPhone camera and represents the easiest way to look-up and translate words while on the go. The new photo translation capability is based on ABBYY Mobile OCR Engine, an internationally acclaimed text recognition technology that provides the industry’s broadest language support and outstanding accuracy in mobile applications.
The patent infringement lawsuit filed by WiLAN against Intel, HP, and other heavy hitters in the tech industry has entered a new stage.
Yesterday, Judge T. John Ward of the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Texas issued a 55-page order that defines the terms used in a patent claim when those meanings are disputed by the parties.
In this case, the order (PDF) may have given WiLAN an edge because the company announced that it is pleased with the decision and said it believes it can now demonstrate that many of the defendants’ Bluetooth, WiMax, and DSL products violated its own patents.
