OK this is pretty cool: built-in translation is coming to Mastodon, funded by the European Commission's Next Generation Internet programme.
Ein Vater macht im Auftrag der Kinderärtzin ein Foto seines nackten Kleinkinds. Sein Google-Account wird gesperrt, alle Daten gelöscht, die Polizei ermittelt.
Der Vater hatte das Bild nicht mittels Google-Diensten geteilt, sondern über die App der Kinderklinik. Das Foto wurde vom Android-Handy automatisch in Google Photos geladen und gescreent. Solche Fälle werden sich auch hier häufen mit der #Chatkontrolle.
@OpenScienceFeed Translate Science will also be at Wikimania. We would like to talk to everyone which articles need translation the most. How do we set priorities?
This off-program Networking session will follow the Language Diversity Hub session August 13, 18:20-18:45 UTC.
Registration for Wikimania is open. Once there, go to the Networking section and join the Translate Science group. https://wikimania.wikimedia.org
Also if you cannot make it, do leave your thoughts here. https://etherpad.wikimedia.org/p/TranslateScienceWhichScience
I'm giving away free science textbooks again! Just call me Crazy PZ, the nerd with the deals!
I would appreciate some help with testing a service bot prototype.
You can append a two letter country code for ambiguous names.
E.g. "@weather Paris,us"
The bot will only reply to direct messages.
More info here: https://envismo.social/bots/weather.html
Feedback and bug reports welcome.
Thanks in advance.
First, experimental version of the weatherbot is no available for brave pioneers.
Send your location in a direct message to @weather and receive the current weather condition in return.
Documentation here: https://envismo.social/bots/weather.html
Any problems or feedback to me please.
Don't try to follow the bot account.
Full change-log for this version: https://github.com/mastodon/mastodon/releases/tag/v3.5.2
fediscience.org is now running v3.5.2
Any problems, please let me know.
I work at the Osservatorio Etneo, Catania section of the Italian National Institute for Geophysics and Volcanology #INGV.
Mathematician by formation, scientific software developer by necessity, I work on #lava flow #simulation, #hazard assessment, #risk mitigation.
Much of my work revolves around #ComputationalFluidDynamics (#CFD), w/ a preference for #SmoothedParticleHydrodynamics (#SPH).
I should probably mention my interest in #HPC and #GPGPU, but I ran out of characters …
Hello world, this is my #introduction:
I am a doctoral candidate at the Research Group for Applied Software Engineering (Prof. Bruegge) at the Technical University of Munich (TUM). My research focuses on computer science education and automated assessments of textual exercises. In addition, I am teaching the lecture courses Introduction to Software Engineering (~2,200 students) and Patterns in Software Engineering (~700 students) at TUM.
I teach and advise researchers on #researchdatamanagement and #datasharing in the #socialsciences. I'm also interested in everything research data infrastructure related and everything to help advance an #openscience culture. Happy to answer your questions! 🤓
I think a more just society is possible. I think improving adolescent #wellbeing depends on expanding opportunities.
Hey people in this thing, I am just getting started around here 😅 I'm a trained industrial designer but work in architectural research. I'm specialized in the conceptualization and development of digital design tools, so I do a lot of software development. I'm an #opensource enthusiast. My PhD research is about digital tools during the transformation to a circular economy in architecture. It's 6:10 over here and I'm going for my usual morning run, together with our dog 🐕
Hey, I am a PhD Student from Germany, working on ultrathin solar cells with tuneable transparency. The goal is to realize a window which can adjust its transmittance of light to exterior conditions. Right now I am close to finishing my PhD.
I am really interested in getting to know other fields of science and find cool Inspiration and Results from all kind of research.
