Apple's Beddit emerges from hibernation with Beddit Sleep Monitor 3.5

By Roger Fingas
Friday, December 07, 2018, 09:30 am PT (12:30 pm ET)

Apple-owned Beddit on Friday made a surprise product launch, releasing a very slightly revised version of its namesake sleep tracker.

The product appears functionally identical to its predecessor, able to record sleep duration, heart rate, breathing, snoring, and room conditions when slipped onto a mattress. Cosmetically though the product is more refined than its predecessor, hiding stitches and incorporating a dedicated opening for its USB cable.

Owners must also use a different iPhone app, Beddit (for Model 3.5), which requires iOS 12. The original Beddit app has been rebranded as "Beddit (for Model 3.0)," and needs only iOS 9.

The Beddit 3.5 syncs with HealthKit and will work with one or two people in a bed, though the second person can't be tracked unless they have their own monitor. Apple is selling the product for $149.95.

Apple bought Beddit in May 2017. The purpose wasn't known at the time, particularly since an Apple sleep expert, Dr. Roy J.E.M. Raymann, left shortly after the acquisition. Beddit shut down its legacy cloud services on Nov. 15 this year.

Earlier in 2018 Apple applied for a patent on technology extremely similar to Beddit's. In the future however the company could conceivably build sleep tracking into the Apple Watch, something so far supported via third-party apps.

Neural-net powered AI "crushes" top chess engine / Boing Boing
via Boing Boing https://boingboing.net

AlphaZero lost only 6 games to Stockfish in a 1000-game series, winning 155 games and drawing the rest. The crushing win sharpens the challenge of neural networks to traditional chess engines.

What can computer chess fans conclude after reading these results? AlphaZero has solidfied its status as one of the elite chess players in the world. But the results are even more intriguing if you're following the ability of artificial intelligence to master general gameplay. According to the journal article, the updated AlphaZero algorithm is identical in three challenging games: chess, shogi, and go. This version of AlphaZero was able to beat the top computer players of all three games after just a few hours of self-training, starting from just the basic rules of the games.

Another neural net-powered chess AI independently learned one of AlphaZero's distinctive strategies--advancing lone pawns to vulnerable but irritating positions in the endgame--suggesting that it might be "a critical winning strategy" for human players to emulate.

"Brain-eating" amoebas kill woman who used filtered tap water in neti pot / Boing Boing
via Boing Boing https://boingboing.net

Neti pot brain-amoeba deaths are like shark week: an incredibly rare event that commands outsize attention due to reactionary schadenfreude and the sheer horror of the victim's demise. Fox News:

When a 69-year old Seattle woman had a seizure earlier this year, doctors at Swedish Medical Center thought she may have had a brain tumor. However during surgery, they discovered it was something much more unusual. ... Dr. Cobb says she most likely became infected by the amoeba after treating a common sinus problem with tap water.

“We believe that she was using a device to irrigate her sinuses that some people use called a neti pot. It’s extremely important to use sterile saline or sterile water. I think she was using water that had been through a water filter and had been doing that for about a year previously,” Dr. Cobb said.

The FDA isn't quite so stern, saying you can use tapwater to irrigate your sinuses if you boil it for at least 3 minutes and, of course, let it cool first. The CDC says you can use filtered tapwater, but only if you're using filters that are explicitly designed to remove germs. Most fridge and store-bought filters do not remove germs.

My local water department handed out this fancy Zerowater model to householders during a local water quality scare here and I can recommend it, though it's slow to filter and the replacement filters are pricey. It also removes dissolved minerals, unlike most store brands, resulting in all the pros and cons of drinking soft water.
