Tech round-up last week

Last week has gathered for you the following trends more and more disruptive.

Facebook is bringing 360-degree video to a smartphone near you.

Researchers are pitting machine learning against elementary school curricula to make software smarter and give AI more common sense.

Stripe’s new service will allow merchants to sell their wares within the mobile app, rather than sending customers to a Web browser or third-party app.

from Purdue University, Intel, and a new startup are combining forces to save our smartphone batteries.

Immersive and interactive sensory experiences are revolutionizing the way we play. VR is growing in popularity, and will soon give more depth to entertainment, education, travel, and even our social lives.

Cloud-connected robots will be more flexible, more energy-efficient, and require less hardware.

A new wave of sensors embedded in our wearables, our homes, and even our brains will keep us hyper-connected with our surroundings.


Linux optimized for containers: Official Kubernetes on CoreOS Guides and Tools

Streamlined and holistic experiences around and within CoreOS, Kubernetes and Tectonic are more and more indispensable for developers and development environment.
The recent release of Kubernetes on CoreOS guides and installation tools charts this way. recalls that, the guides are actively maintained by the CoreOS team and are subject to regular Kubernetes conformance testing. So, you can find the full deployment guide within the CoreOS documentation. Also included: the basic Kubernetes usage instructions; guides on pods, replication controllers, and services. A single nodeand multi-node Vagrant installation guide is intended to be used as an SDK for your development environment. All guides and tools are available on GitHub.

Kubernetes and Docker and others engines available as first class resources in OpenStack.

On today’s self-service-oriented data center environment, it is indispensable to make container orchestration engines such as Kubernetes and Docker available as first class resources in OpenStack.
Henceforth, any significantly advanced container-based application is going to need resources, such as databases, networking, and drive space. 
So, recalls that, by keeping your applications in an OpenStack environment, you get the advantage of the Infrastructure as a Service capabilities it brings with it, such as being able to create storage volumes or networks on demand.
In this momentum, the OpenStack Magnum project is working to make container orchestration engines such as Kubernetes and Docker available as first class resources in OpenStack, deploying container-based resources on hypervisors, or even on bare metal resources, in much the same way it provisions VMs.

The intersection between containers and OpenStack: computing resources, security, scalability, productivity and more.

We live henceforth in a digital age where containers transform how developers build apps where and OpenStack transform how we deliver IT resources anywhere and anytime.
With self contained applications, you can pack up and move here, there, and everywhere: Write once, run anywhere. 
OpenStack is now the facto a cloud computing standard.
When it comes to the intersection between containers and OpenStack, recalls that, henceforth developers need the real-time ability to write a containerized application and move it around between machines easily.
Google’s introduction of the Kubernetes container management orchestration system is exciting: manage containers easily, moving them around, scaling them up and down, and so on.
In this momentum, OpenStack brings critical computing resources you need to run containers. 
With OpenStack you cannot worry about security between different containers and container’s open ports. also recalls that, many people who are u…
