Canva has more than 20 billion user-uploaded images, with 50 million uploaded daily.

Dealing with a large variety of media creates difficulties when it comes to moderating and minimizing unnecessary duplicate content
To solve this problem, Canva uses perceptual hashing with an internally built reverse image search system

My #indoorairquality & #thermalcomfort lectures in a nutshell...this the stuff we need to teach #architects and #engineers but don't...neither of these fields are complete without understanding human factors. S/o @ashraenews ImageImage
One of the cool studies I talk about is particle emission from carpets and respiration by infants crawling across the's a real thing...s/o to Wu & Boor from Purdue Image
I also tall about the use of PET scans to observe the brain's response to skin heating and cooling...both critical in thermal comfort design. Image

THE GREAT RESET: Over 200,000 people have been laid off in the #tech industry this year, and the flood of new talent has started to change the job market.

Check out Blind's exclusive research - a thread 🧵:
1/ The Great Resignation and the ease of wage hikes when changing jobs may be over.

56% of U.S. professionals said they would accept the same or LESS pay in a new role, per an April 2023 survey by Blind…
2/ The perceived weakness of the job market is why many say they're now willing to accept lower pay.

45% cited market concerns—more than those who picked company culture, return-to-office policy, or even the need for a work visa as their top reason COMBINED Image

வாங்க.. பாலங்களின் வகைகள் தெரிந்து கொள்வோம்🤩

பீம் பாலம்:
இது எளிமையான மற்றும் மிகவும் பொதுவான வகை பாலமாகும். இது ஒரு கிடைமட்ட கற்றையைக் கொண்டுள்ளது, ஒவ்வொரு முனையிலும் பியர்ஸ் அல்லது அபுட்மென்ட்களால் ஆதரிக்கப்படுகிறது. பாலத்தின் எடை தூண்களால் சுமக்கப்படுகிறது, #Engineers
இது சுமைகளை தரையில் மாற்றுகிறது. பீம் பாலங்கள் பெரும்பாலும் குறுகிய இடைவெளிகளுக்குப் பயன்படுத்தப்படுகின்றன.

வளைவுப் பாலம்: வளைவுப் பாலம் என்பது ஒரு வளைந்த அமைப்பாகும், இது ஒரு திறந்தவெளி முழுவதும் எடையைக் கொண்டு செல்லும் வகையில் வடிவமைக்கப்பட்டுள்ளது.
பாலத்தின் எடை வளைவால் சுமக்கப்படுகிறது, இது சுமையை இரு முனைகளிலும் உள்ள பக்கவாட்டுகளுக்கு மாற்றுகிறது. ஆர்ச் பாலங்கள் பெரும்பாலும் நீண்ட இடைவெளிகளுக்குப் பயன்படுத்தப்படுகின்றன.

I have met many mathematicians, #engineers, and #statisticians, from different countries, but, the ones that are graduates of #French and Belgian Universities are probably the best that I have come across.
What makes these countries so proficient when it comes to teaching #maths?
During the early 1990s, most of the #Quants and Financial Engineers who joined the Financial Services industry in the City of #London came from France.
French Mathematicians changed the way banking & asset mgmt was done.
Actuaries at @CityUniLondon dominated Insurance
Neither @LBS nor @LSEEcon contributed to the development of the #Quantitative Finance or #Actuarial Science Professional Cultures in the City.
The major contributors were @hwugradfutures and @CityUniLondon
To date, LBS does not teach Financial Engineering as a pathway

A #journey to unknown! 🥰✌️

Nobody can help you out
It's only you, who can help yourself
To stay up, to stay motivated, to not fall, and to get up stronger even if you fall
You're the only one to lift yourself up
You're the only one to wipe your tears
As only you know what you're going through
Believe me
It's a journey to make you stronger and better
To help you cross bigger obstacles in future
These things won't even matter few years from now
But for now it does, and I understand the pain
But nobody else will, feel the same as you do
So only you can cure it
By putting a smile on your face
And getting back on track with more /confidence and determination

How to start your idea (#startup) from scratch
No needs:
- #hiring #engineers (product developers)
- #UI/#UX #designer
- #PM
- #Marketing #teams
- #angel or #vc #investors

- increasing curiosity
- #skills growth
- intentions for great

Check the thread 🧵 👇
Step #1
Use #nocode or #lowcode solutions to build your #product from scratch (needs $15-30 for domains and nocode platform)

You don't need funds or hire engineers/designers to build your product just grow your skillset.
Build on @bubble by single person 👇

Proud 🤩 to present our preprint on the use of #CO2 monitors in hospital: background, pilot data and protocol for an RCT.
A #COVID19 🧵 @trishgreenhalgh @mjb302
While Belgium is about to become one of the first countries to mandate #CO2monitors in bars, no evidence supports their use, which is particularly problematic in clinical medicine #EBM. How are CO2 levels in hospitals? What does the literature say? @HuffmanLabDU @j_g_allen
Widely varying results have been reported, with values >1000 p.p.m. up to 3000 p.p.m. in low-income setttings vs. excellent values in high-resource settings

2020 and

Welcome #2021NewYear is not only a new year but also we are going to enter a new decade 2021-2030.
A decade in which we will be completing studies , being settled , getting married, having kids .
Some will loose their favourite person .

Welcome 2021 live (1/8)
Everyday in hustle
Another year
Another struggle

More responsibilities
Life will be more tougher

But remember YOLO
Keep yourself occupied, give time to yourself and your family , nature , animals and our country .

Be a responsible citizen of society .

Peace ☮️ out ✌️ #2020IsOverParty
This year was very different for all generation
We never saw these things
#lockdown #coronavirus #protest #unemployment #Rammandir #CAA_NRC (just before 2020)

But lot of good things happened
Students got promoted
Adults got married

"The #OFQUAL #algorithm is a gross misuse of statistics... there is a special place in hell for those who use maths to hide rather than reveal the truth, this algorithm is hiding the achievement of this generation of young people." my @ChronicleLive blog…
Most people now think the #AlevelResults should not stand, whether the Govt will recognise that or not is another matter. But we shouldn't blame #algorithms for this huge injustice - like most technology they are neither good nor bad in themselves
And I don't blame those who wrote the #algorithm I do think #engineers (like me) & #datascientists should take a 'do no harm' oath like doctors, but currently there is no framework for that & they were presumably working to a spec

Taleb wrote, “...arguments should be simplified to their maximum potential; but often people confuse complex ideas that cannot be simplified into a media-friendly statement as symptomatic of a confused mind.”

@nntaleb #Engineering #engineers
And Einstein supposedly said, “All things should be made as simple as possible, but no simpler.”

But it turns out that was probably a simplification.
What Einstein actually wrote was, “the supreme goal of all theory is to make the irreducible basic elements as simple and as few as possible without having to surrender the adequate representation of a single datum of experience.”

A little more verbose.

I've just bought @GalZellermayer's new book "Manager in Shorts". I've read the first chapter (chapter 0) and can't wait for reading more.

"This book will make you aware." Image
@GalZellermayer Quote as I go thread

Chapter 1

"Aim to master 4 domains: T & 3 Ps:
Technology - you know: coding, design, architecture, databases, frontend, and so on.

Product - what are we building and why? Process - plan and execute.
People - (-:

“In this order”
Chapter 2

@GalZellermayer identified the above quote is lacking agility and accuracy. He mentions that @jewelia noted (and better expressed) that too, in her tweet

Arrange the IT firms like Hospitals and everything will fall in place. Doctor Consultation (UX Consultation / Solution Consultation) in one corner. If Doctors need some testing done, then they will forward it to the testing lab. Testing by Test Specialist (Usability Specialist)
in another corner. Pharmacy (necessary services to keep the client afloat) in the main entrance. Operation Theater (Strategist / Data Scientist) in 2nd Floor. Emergency ward (DevOps) in a separate building. Well nurses, what do they do? They work as per Doctor's instruction
so yup they are the developers. But everyone must understand Doctor's Hand Writing!!!
Just for fun. Don't implement it right away, else HIPAA may find interest in you.

#EducationIsImportant #NationBuilding
A University professor once wrote an expressive and Avery apt message to his students at the doctorate, masters and bachelors levels and placed it at the entrance in the university he taught in..
The #Message reads as below..

“Collapsing any nation does not require use of atomic bombs or the use of long range missiles. It only requires lowering the quality of education and allowing cheating in the examinations by the students".
The #patient dies in the hands of such #doctors

And the buildings #collapse in the hands of such #engineers

And the money is #lost in the hands of such #accountants

And #humanity dies in the hands of such religious #productivity scholars ...

What do #interns do in the Directorate of Science & Technology? How can #STEM #students drive innovation that affects the national security of our nation? We spoke with an undergraduate scholarship intern, “Alice,” about her experience. #NationalSTEMDay Woman typing on laptop
Alice: "This is a great #internship because you’re treated like an employee...They want to enable you and challenge you, so they put you on teams and give you work that impacts the #mission."

Learn more about our student opportunities:
Alice: "I previously didn’t know that CIA recruited #engineers. My #STEM background has laid a foundation for all positions I’ve held within CIA, and many of my project leads have been happy to expand my knowledge further."

Do you require an #Engineering Degree to join the "#Usability Engineer" post in #Corporate or #Design #Degree holders can also apply?

Recently I saw a lot of opening for Usability #Engineers in Indian #IT #companies. So this query came to my mind, is Usability Engineer
an appropriate term in IT or should it be called Usability #Analyst? A lot of Bachelors of #Interaction Design and Bachelors of #Product Design progress to become Usability Analyst in IT. In such cases would it be appropriate to call Bachelors of Design as Engineers?
How would this affect CMMI, ISO, Accessibility Act, Hazard & risk and other such Standards?

The #UX #Teapot Philosophy of Cohesive Vision Design Driven Organisation. The generic approach of Technology Companies to solve a problem in typical engineering way is to throw a lot of people for a challenge, pour in lot of money and then choose the most efficient solution.
However this doesn't work with UX. A famous Proverb as it says "World's 7 great artists sitting around a table drawing a tea pot all from their perspective of vision". That would be 7 different pictures all equally appealing and flawless. When you distribute designers
based on module with no centralize Design CoE to channelize and cultivate a cohesive vision design philosophy, all you receive is so many different perspective in the same product. It complicate the seamless integration of one module with another at all levels.
