A Phone That Lies for You: An Android Hack Allows Users to Put Decoy Data on a Smartphone - Scientific American

A new programming technique could bring these scenarios to life. Computer scientist Karl-Johan Karlsson has reprogrammed a phone to lie. By modifying the operating system of an Android-based smartphone, he was able to put decoy data on it—innocent numbers, for example—so that the real data escape forensics. He presented the hack in January at the Hawaii International Conference on System Sciences.

Beware: Your chocolate chip cookie is spying on you | MNN - Mother Nature Network

The White House may be asking food marketers to be responsible when it comes to marketing to kids, but the snack food industry still needs to keep increasing its profits. Mondelez International, the company that owns brands like Chips Ahoy and Ritz, is going about it in an intrusive and rather creepy way. This is something you need to be aware of.

Skybox Imaging - Skybox Imaging + Google

We’re thrilled to announce that Skybox Imaging has entered into an agreement to be acquired by Google! Five years ago, we began the Skybox journey to revolutionize access to information about the changes happening across the surface of the Earth. We’ve made great strides in the pursuit of that vision. We’ve built and launched the world’s smallest high­-resolution imaging satellite, which collects beautiful and useful images and video every day. We have built an incredible team and empowered them to push the state­-of­-the-­art in imaging to new heights. The time is right to join a company who can challenge us to think even bigger and bolder, and who can support us in accelerating our ambitious vision.

Meet 2011 TR35 Winner Dan Berkenstock | MIT Video

Berkenstock describes his work at EmTech 2011: Cheaper satellite pictures. Skybox Imaging Dan Berkenstock, cofounder and chief product officer of Skybox Imaging, wants to let "anyone know what's happening anywhere in the world at any time." Next year the company plans to launch the first of what it hopes will be a constellation of 12 to 24 satellites taking high-­resolution pictures of Earth. Each satellite should cost about a tenth as much as the $250 million to $500 million imaging satellites operated by companies like DigitalGlobe and GeoEye.

Two-Granularity Tracking

Abstract We want to segment and track objects occluding each other in crowded scenes. We propose a tracking framework that mediates grouping cues from two levels of tracking granularities: coarse-grain detection tracklets and fine-grain point trajectories. Each tracking granularity proposes corresponding grouping cues: trajectories with similar long-term motion and disparity attract each other, detections overlapping in time repulse each other. Tracking is formulated as selection-clustering in the joint detection and trajectory space. Affinities of trajectories and detections will be contradictory in cases of false alarm detections or accidental motion similarity of trajectories. We resolve such contradictions in a steering-clustering framework where confident detections change trajectory affinities, by inducing repulsions between trajectories claimed by repulsive detection tracklets. Two-granularity tracking offers a unified representation for object segmentation and tracking independent of what objects to track, how occluded they are, whether monocular or binocular input or whether camera is moving or not.
