Minigame integrated into EVE Online helps scientists understand cells

Ars Technica - 1 hour 33 min ago

Enlarge / Yes, those are real human cells inside a fictional galaxy.

Citizen science, which asks the public to help out science projects, has produced some spectacular successes. But finding a way to grab and maintain hold of the public's attention can be a challenge. That's led to a number of projects that turn the science challenge into a game, finding ways of making a "win" into scientific progress.

But scientists have also figured out ways of hijacking existing games, including using pre-existing fan bases that recruits players through in-game rewards. Now, there's a progress report on an effort to turn EVE Online players into cell biology experts. Thanks to some in-game rewards, over 300,000 players contributed roughly 33 million calls on where in a cell a protein was located. This not only greatly expanded a public database of information on proteins, but it enabled the researchers to better train a neural network to do the same thing.

Call it

While in many cases, it's been possible to determine or infer what a protein does, that only gives us a partial idea of its actual function. That's because many proteins are shipped to specific locations in cells. So while two proteins may look similar in terms of the order and identity of their amino acids, one may be shipped to the nucleus, where it interacts with DNA, while its relative gets sent to the cell's surface, where it does acts on proteins in; the surroundings. So figuring out where a protein normally resides within cells can go a long way toward helping us figure out its normal functions.

Huawei was caught using a pro camera to fake smartphone photos (again)

Huawei might make decent smartphones, but its marketing and advertising campaigns have, multiple times, been struck by controversy. That continues today, as an actor's social media post revealed that the company faked smartphone photos with a professional DSLR camera for an advertisement in Egypt.

In the ad (embedded below), a couple takes selfies at a party and at home with the Huawei Nova 3. The Huawei video shows a rapid succession of moments in which the couple prepares to take the selfie, then shows the final photos as snapshots between moments. As it turns out, though, the photos were taken on a DSLR camera—the type of dedicated (and not-at-all-tied-to-a-smartphone) camera used by professional photographers.

Reddit user AbdullahSab3 discovered that Sarah Elshamy, one of the actors in the video, posted some behind-the-scenes photos to her Instagram page. One image revealed a photographer shooting the at-home selfie with a DSLR.

Pay now or kiss Twitch Prime’s no-advertising perk goodbye starting Sept 14

On Monday, Twitch announced a major downgrade coming soon to its paid Twitch Prime service. Starting September 14, any renewal of the paid service (as part of a paid Amazon Prime subscription) will have its no-advertising benefit lopped off.

On that day, existing paid Amazon Prime (and thus Twitch Prime) subscribers will continue receiving an ad-free viewing experience on the site, which revolves primarily around video game live-streaming. Any renewals paid for after that date, either on a monthly or annual basis, will flip the switch and turn video ads back on, to be played at random intervals during Twitch video streams.

In short: if you want to reap ad-free Twitch benefits via Amazon Prime for as long as possible and you like paying for Amazon's service, re-up that subscription ahead of September 14.
