ODROID Magazine August Issue Available Now! (AI)

Unread postby robroy » Wed Aug 09, 2017 6:29 am

Hardkernel is proud to announce that the ODROID Magazine for August 2017 is now available!

Artificial intelligence is one of the most exciting computing frontiers of the 21st century. Technology such as Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant, and Microsoft Cortana are compact, affordable and useful personal assistants, but they all use closed-source proprietary code, which raises privacy concerns. A solution for ensuring that the user has complete control over the information that is shared and stored is to use open-source applications such as Mycroft and Prolog. Compiling the code yourself and installing it on an ODROID is an easy, inexpensive way to build a personal assistant to fit your exact needs while also protecting your privacy.

Another emerging application of advanced technology is cryptocurrency mining. Hardkernel engineers built a ODROID-XU4 demonstration cluster to show the stability of Kernel 4.9 and calculate the financial viability of long-term mining. Tobias discusses whether he is a Nintendo fanboy, Jörg shows us how to control the display backlight in Android, Miltiadis helps us migrate from Ubuntu MATE to Lubuntu, Dennis demonstrates a project using the Adafruit OLED display, and we present a guide to getting started with Android on the ODROID-C2.

    6 Mycroft: Open Source Artificial Intelligence
    12 Artificial Intelligence Programming: Using Prolog With An ODROID-XU4
    14 ODROID-VU: Backlight Brightness Control On Android
    20 Linux Gaming: Fanboy Part 1 - Am I A Nintendo Fanboy?
    22 Migrating From Ubuntu Mate To Lubuntu: A Step-By-Step Guide For Switching To An LXDE Desktop
    24 Using The Adafruit 128x64 OLED Bonnet On An ODROID-C1+: Programming With Luma.OLED And WiringPi
    26 ODROID-XU4 LED Control
    27 Cryptocurrency Mining: A Viability Project And Stability Test For Kernel Version 4.9 On An ODROID-XU4 Supercomputing Cluster

I can't for the life of me find a way of downloading the August Issue of ODROID Magazine.

I have successfully downloaded all other issues but cannot find any link to download this edition.

Due to popular demand, the magazine changed from pdf format to a web format instead. You can view it here: https://magazine.odroid.com/issue/201709/.

Many thanks, I didn't realize it was not available as pdf from now on.

Cheers for the prompt reply, squid.

I prefer the PDF edition. :o

Also, I was wondering what happened to the September edition since there was no announcement of its availability.

Rob(Chief Editor) has a vacation now.
He will be back tomorrow.

Unfortunately, we have not enough resources to publish the HTML and the PDF both.

I prefer the html version. The images are easier to see, layouting is simpler and probably saves time, there are tags you can use to search by and a discussion section for each article (though it might not be efficient if it doesn't notify the author).
An announcement thread with a table of contents would be great
One thing that's missing (and I'd like to see againg) are the small 1 column articles usually about games.
