Windows 10 Fall Creators Update is here: Should you upgrade now?

ZDNet

Windows 10 after two years: Was the upgrade worth it? After a little more than two years, Microsoft has finally settled into a rhythm with its new, fast-paced development cadence for Windows 10. Check Settings System About to see full details about the current Windows 10 installation. What Microsoft's marketers are calling the Fall Creators Update (officially version 1709) begins arriving on desktop PCs today via Windows Update and will soon be available for download at all the usual places. The final build number for this release is 16299.


Your deep learning Python Ubuntu virtual machine - PyImageSearch

#artificialintelligence

Your purchase of Deep Learning for Computer Vision with Python includes a pre-configured Ubuntu virtual machine for deep learning. From there select File Import Appliance...: Once the dialog opens you'll want to navigate to where the DL4CV Ubuntu VM.ova file resides on disk: Finally, you can click "Import" and allow the virtual machine to import: Figure 7: Importing the Ubuntu deep learning virtual machine may take 3-4 minutes depending on your system. There are multiple methods to access the Deep Learning for Computer Vision with Python source code datasets from your virtual machine. The Deep Learning for Computer Vision with Python virtual machine uses Python virtual environments to help organize Python modules and keep them separate from the system install of Python.


What to expect from the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update

In addition, the Windows Update display now offers detailed information about the status of individual updates, so you don't have to wonder whether anything's happening in the background. One of my favorite classic Windows features, Volume Mixer, has finally been updated to include Universal Windows Platform (UWP) apps, including Microsoft Edge and Groove Music. Remote Desktop settings, which were scattered in several locations in earlier versions, now get a single home: Settings System Remote Desktop. Microsoft turns Windows 10 Fall Creators Update focus to'stabilization' as of Build 16273

Machine Learning For Virtual Machine Migration Plan Generation

#artificialintelligence

The present disclosure relates to management of virtual machines and, more specifically, using machine learning for virtual machine migration plan generation. The computer readable instructions includes determining an initial mapping of a plurality of virtual machines to a plurality of hosts as an origin state and determining a final mapping of the virtual machines to the hosts as a goal state. The virtual machine migration plan is generated based on the heuristic state transition cost of the candidate paths in combination with the heuristic goal cost of a sequence of transitions from the origin state to the goal state having a lowest total cost. One or more candidate parallel migration plans are generated based on the parallelism gates in combination with serial migrations from the virtual machine migration plan.

How many servers do you need for your cloud? – DXC Blogs

#artificialintelligence

As a company turning to public cloud, you are indeed replacing capital expenses (CAPEX) with operating expenses (OPEX), but that's not how it works for a public cloud company. Or, for that matter, your company if you're building your own private cloud. Even AWS, the biggest of the public clouds, can't do that. Over time, I hope AWS, or another of the other major public cloud powers share, if not their data, then at least their methodology.

By employing a wide set of machine learning algorithms, Citrix Analytics correlates and analyzes this cross-product data to detect and isolate risky user activities whether they stem from a negligent internal employee or malicious external attacker.


VMwareVoice: 7 Keys To The Connected Car

Forbes

As the Internet of Things (IoT) revs up the automotive industry, connected cars are becoming "devices on wheels" with in-vehicle systems connected to the Internet. Therefore, car manufacturers must develop new services and applications to provide consumers with more personalized driving options. Collecting and analyzing this data will help carmakers understand user preferences, develop new applications, and give consumers a wider, more personalized range of driving choices. To get new automotive IT services to market quickly, carmakers may wish to partner with application developers, IT security companies, and enterprise companies with established cloud-based infrastructures and data analysis experience.


VMware turns to sci-fi writers to explain virtualization

ZDNet

Chuck and Ravi are the two main characters in a fictional podcast series, written by SciFutures, to help VMware promote the ideas of network virtualization and business mobility. Why is a virtualization software company sponsoring a podcast series that spoofs classic science fiction movies? To accomplish that, VMware turned to SciFutures, an agency that uses science fiction to help companies -- from VMware to Visa -- convey their vision of the future. For VMware, SciFutures was tasked with using science fiction to convey the benefits of network virtualization and business mobility.
