This Week in Tech Recap, we highlight plans for 3 remote-friendly tech companies return to work, an AI upgrade, the age of engineering, and how smartphones are helping to measure our attention!
- How 3 remote friendly tech companies plan to return to the office. “Flexible working is here to stay and is likely to be as important to prospective employees as more traditional company benefits.” tcrn.ch/3n8EAAp
- The age of engineering life begins. “Computer code undergirds the most profitable companies the world has ever seen, but the code of life promises to be just as influential for the future — if we can master it.” bit.ly/2EOT6Mq
- The National Guard’s Fire-Mapping Drones Get an AI Upgrade. “Normally, National Guard analysts review that wildfire surveillance video to create maps, a process that takes as long as 6 hours. This year, the Pentagon is testing artificial intelligence algorithms that scan the video and automatically generate maps of the fires in minutes.” bit.ly/2HGlHEK
- Our actual attention is now measurable. “Our smartphones will not necessarily have to evaluate sensitive personal data in order to understand us and our needs better in the future.” bit.ly/3cPqGOZ
