UCLA just open-sourced a powerful new image-detection algorithm

Image recognition has become increasingly critical in applications ranging from smartphones to driverless cars, and on Wednesday UCLA opened up to the public a new algorithm that promises big gains.

The Phase Stretch Transform algorithm is a physics-inspired computational approach to processing images and information that can help computers "see" features of objects that aren't visible using standard imaging techniques. It could be used to detect an LED lamp's internal structure, for example -- something that would be obscured to conventional techniques by the brightness of its light. It can also distinguish distant stars that would normally be invisible in astronomical images, UCLA said.

Microsoft lets cautious users try more of Windows 10?s leading edge

Microsoft's Windows 10 betas have officially become a three-ring circus.

The company announced Wednesday that in addition to the Windows Insider Program's traditional Fast and Slow distribution rings that let the public test upcoming versions of Windows 10, there will also be a Release Preview ring that lets users get an early glimpse of what's coming to their PC while retaining stability. 

People who opt in to the Release Preview ring will remain on the current version of Windows 10 until Microsoft has an update it considers ready for general release. Release Preview users will get the update early. It's similar to what the company is doing with its Office Insider program, which gives users who opt in a few weeks of early access to new Office 2016 features before they're rolled out to users more broadly.

Windows 10 Insider option makes desktop and mobile testing less scary

Many PC users have an extra system or two kicking around, which can be used to test new preview builds of Windows 10. But most users have only one active phone, making the prospect of testing a preview mobile OS less likely. Enter Microsoft's new "Release Preview" track: a preview build that scales back risk and is available for mobile hardware.

Microsoft debuted the new Release Preview track as part of Windows 10 Mobile Preview Build 10586.107, an otherwise uneventful preview release that fixes a few bugs. Available for desktop and mobile builds, the Release Preview rounds out the Fast and Slow tracks that have made up the Windows 10 Insider program.

Google Play Store can now use your Gmail itineraries for app recommendations

Where you go can tell a lot about you. Google would now like to use what it already knows about your travels to better pitch some new Android apps.

An update to the Google Play Store features a new option: Use itineraries from Gmail. You can turn it on in the settings, and as the description implies you should see more apps that are tied in directly to the locations and appointments in your Gmail.

The new option may give you better recommendations next time you fire up the Play Store.

A new IoT gateway design could be Bluetooth's ticket to the cloud

The Bluetooth Special Interest Group wants to raise Bluetooth's profile in the Internet of Things with a toolkit for building gateways between the short-range wireless network and the Internet.

The toolkit should make it easier to build gateways that collect data wirelessly from Bluetooth devices and then transfer it to the cloud via Ethernet, mobile broadband or other networks.

A basic use of gateways could be medical devices automatically sending and receiving health information from doctors far away. Light usage data could also be aggregated from many Bluetooth-connected smart bulbs in a building, then sent via a gateway to a cloud service for analysis.
