Telex: A Film About BlackBerry’s History Takes a Break from Dublin Data Centers, AI to Date Ancient Bones

A film that tells the history of Blackberry. In the company’s home country of Canada, a producer made a film about the company that created and marketed a smartphone with a keyboard. The feature film, titled “BlackBerry,” is adapted from the book “Losing the Signal: The Spectacular Rise and Fall of Blackberry” by Sean Silkoff and Jacqui McNish. It tells the story of Research in Motion (RIM), a company based in Waterloo, Ontario that morphed into BlackBerry in 2013. Canadian actor Jay Baruchel plays company co-founder Mike Lazaridis and Glenn Howerton. Co-CEO, Jim Balsillie. The release date of the film is yet to be revealed.

Dublin is taking a break from data centers. According to the Times, several data center construction and expansion projects in Ireland have been halted or suspended. Microsoft, Amazon and Equinix are concerned after electricity network operator EirGrid’s decision not to connect to the grid before 2028. So cloud providers are looking for alternative solutions, especially in London, but also in Frankfurt and Madrid.

AI to date ancient bones. A team led by Lund University in Sweden has developed a method that uses machine learning to identify the genomes of dead organisms. The researchers want to upgrade the dating technique, which is mainly based on carbon 14, a technique developed more than 80 years ago. An AI technique promoted by experts known as temporal population structure (TPS) looks for genetic markers that have changed over time to estimate age. TPS searches tens of thousands of markers to infer the age of a person’s remains. The software, powered by machine learning, trained these mutation patterns from previously out-dated remains.
