Geometry of Image Formation

In this post, we will explain the image formation from a geometrical point of view. Specifically, we will cover the math behind how a point in 3D gets projected on the image plane. This post is written with beginners in mind but it is mathematical in nature. That said, all you need to know is […]

The Coronavirus Has Taken Its Toll on the Tech Industry

The coronavirus has been greatly affecting all areas of global society, the tech sector included. Some of the world’s biggest companies have closed stores, offices, and factories in China, with their employees being restricted from nonessential travel. The closure of stores throughout the country coincided with the Lunar New Year, a time when businesses close shop for everyone to observe the holidays. But then, the closures were extended until February 10. However, there are some provinces in the country that have advised companies to further delay their openings until March 1.

Many short and long-term effects are expected, from events being postponed to product launches not happening as scheduled. Looking deer into what’s happening, here are some of the ways that the coronavirus has been crippling global tech:

Employee travel restricted

Not just has the coronavirus stopped employees of the tech industry to cancel travel itineraries to China, Hongkong, and Macao, but travel plans to other parts of the world have also slowed down. LG, Facebook, Apple, and Amazon are just some of the companies that have stopped employees from traveling to China and telling those who are based in China to work from home instead.

The virus has already killed more than 630 people, infected 31,000, and spread to at least 25 countries, prompting many countries to warn against travel to China. But after the World Health Organization declared the outbreak a global health emergency, companies are becoming cautious of any unnecessary travel.

Factories closed

The manufacturing of goods in China has come to a halt following the lockdown of the Hubei province, which has Wuhan, the epicenter of the virus. The province and surrounding areas also happen to be hubs of technology manufacturing, and with factories in the area expected to be closed until the next weeks of February to early March, global supply chains will feel the squeeze.

Wuhan, the epicenter of the epidemic, is home to many electronic suppliers. Provinces like Zhejiang, Guangdong and Henan are very important for technology manufacturing

Netsweeper Launches New Digital Safety Solution to Assist with the Prevention of Student Suicide

Netsweeper Launches New Digital Safety Solution to Assist with the Prevention of Student Suicide

Netsweeper launches nMonitor to enable schools to proactively monitor activity online to identify struggling students including those at risk of suicide

THE HAGUE, Netherlands, Jan. 14, 2020 /CNW/ – Netsweeper, the web filtering platform of choice for schools, announced that it will be launching nMonitor, a new tool to help schools identify at-risk students in real-time, at this year’s Future of Education and Technology Conference (FETC) and the British Education Technology Tradeshow (BETT).

The new nMonitor product sends real-time alerts when a student engages with content that signals early detection of sexual grooming, suicide attempts, self-harm, radicalization, and other potentially harmful online activity, helping schools be proactive about student safety online. Netsweeper scans both online and offline content, such as chat messages, emails, and documents, content that was previously unavailable to schools for monitoring. nMonitor’s advanced categorization and analysis engine also helps to reduce the number of false positive alerts, minimizing administration requirements.

“There’s a lot of challenges on the internet — social media, cyber bullying, extreme content and much more. This type of content is affecting the mental health of our children,” says Perry Roach, CEO. “Children are online asking about suicide and self-harm. Or they’re reaching out for help when they are being bullied or suffering from depression. The Netsweeper solution provides tools to alert school leaders about these actions and hopefully get help to these children before something serious happens.”

To learn more about how Netsweeper nMonitor helps schools proactively identify at-risk students, visit the Netsweeper website. Netsweeper will be launching the new product at booth 4831 at FETC, January 14-17, 2020, and at stand NH30 during the BETT show, January 22-25, 2020.

Why Business Owners 12x More Likely to Be a Cyber Security Target and What You Can Do About It

As a business owner or operator, it is up to you to protect yourself and your employees from cyber attacks. Unfortunately, many small business owners either underestimate the damage a cyber attack can cause or fail to take the proper steps to protect themselves. Below is a look at some reasons why business owners are more likely to become a victim of cyber attacks and some steps you can take to reduce your risk.

Why are Business Owners More Susceptible to Cyber Attacks?

A recent study by Verizon highlights how vulnerable business owners are to cybersecurity attacks. When compared to other employees, business owners and senior executives are a dozen times more apt to become a victim of a cybersecurity attack. Small businesses were especially likely to be targeted, accounting for 43% of cyber attacks and data breaches. Here are a few reasons why business owners and executives are more at risk:

1) They are incredibly busy

Business owners and top executives are usually preoccupied with the day to day activities of running a business. They are so busy focusing on customer issues, troubleshooting, and promoting their business that they do not have time to think about cybersecurity. 

2) They often know little about protecting themselves

In addition to having little time to think about IT threats, business owners typically know very little about cybersecurity. They have no idea about the most common threats or what measures they can take to protect themselves.

3) They think they are immune to attacks

Small business owners, in particular, are especially likely to think that they will never become a target of a cyber attack. They often assume that hackers will target larger, more profitable companies, and therefore focus little on prevention.

4) They underestimate the damage an attack can cause

With the average cost of a cyber attack now exceeding $1 million, a cyber attack can spell financial doom for a business – especially a small one. Between lost productivity, service disruptions, and a poor customer experience, cyber attacks can cause …

Ensuring Training Reproducibility in PyTorch

Imagine you trained a deep learning model on some dataset. A few days later, you want to reproduce the same experiment, but if you were not careful, you may never be able to reproduce the same experiment exactly even if you used the same architecture, the same dataset, and trained on the same machine!

World-Class Managed Cloud Services for Your Business in NYC

Cloud computing is a transformative trend in network technology, driving greater productivity and efficiency for over a decade. That doesn’t mean that businesses have realized the full potential of the cloud yet. Many companies still report ongoing difficulty and dissatisfaction with their cloud migration and management, often due to a lack of cloud expertise and resources.

Manhattan Tech Support is an innovative provider of managed cloud solutions, which means we put all the skills and expertise you need to build and maintain a customized cloud program within easy reach for a single flat-rate, monthly fee.

What is Cloud Computing? Cloud computing is a method of locating IT software and services in a remote data center, then accessing those services on demand across the Internet. By locating your applications in the cloud, your business saves the expense of buying and managing new hardware while enjoying greater stability, flexibility, and reliability.

Successful Cloud Migrations Start with Careful Analysis

More than 77% of all companies have some portion of their infrastructure in the cloud already. What’s driven this rapid adoption of the cloud is the promise of decreased IT capital expenditure, more efficient business processes, and better worker productivity.

Despite the many benefits, a high number of cloud migrations fail. In over ten years of service to New York businesses, we’ve noticed a few key mistakes that organizations make when trying to embrace the cloud.

Choosing the Wrong Cloud Services and Applications

Selecting the wrong applications to migrate to the cloud — or putting the right applications into the wrong cloud environment — both diminish the performance of your services, harm productivity and contribute to unexpected cost over-runs.

Lack of a Holistic Vision for Your Cloud Migration

Before you begin migrating services to the cloud, you need to have a vision for how your cloud services will integrate with your existing technology and processes. To ensure success, this vision must anticipate any potential problems, like compliance or security issues.

Failure to Optimize and Test

Cloud migrations are like any other IT project in …
