AI to Improve and Optimize Your Life

Modern trends are becoming more and more drawn around technologies and their role into regular people’s lives. Technological process is gaining steam with every single day, and this cannot but please us – advanced technologies promise humanity glittering future, where manual job would be replaced by mechanisms and programs. But if you think, that these are long-term prospects, which won’t find realization in the coming decade, then we are happy to dissuade you – such future is much closer than you think.

 

In favor of this statement we challenge you to remember at least one day, when you haven’t used your smartphone or TV at all. “Regular” devices and some familiar inventions (computers, laptops, cars, Internet etc.) have already become an inherent part of our lives, while such things as artificial intelligence, face recognition or deep learning still sound like some sort of science-fictional attributes for the major part of people. However, we are confident in that in the nearest years they will definitely become known for every single child and scholar all around the globe. The future is in the lap of high technologies.

It is hard to believe that almost 20 years ago personal computers or telephones were the attributes of rich people! Nowadays, we can’t imagine our life without robo-cleaners, autopilots, and other useful inventions, which help us to share the platform and shirk off manual work upon mechanisms, so that we can do more important job. There is no more clear illustration of the high tech availability and rapid reduction of prices than artificial intelligence.

Highly complicated system, based on millions of algorithms and deep learning mechanism, was designed to perform a vast of calculations at the same time, to make marketing researches, to create new medicaments and even to control transport by itself. However, the widest acceptance it has found in a sphere of artificial perception, and especially in areas where face recognition was required (police departments, face searching in a crowd etc.) Soon, people have realized, that such well-developed technology can be useful even in our regular lives, and from that point handymen all around the world were trying to make regular people’s livings better and easier. That’s the exact story of how Brian AI grew from a theoretical idea up to the high-grade application assistant.

The general idea of such application appeared 10 years ago, when there was no help for people, who wanted to trade their photos on special sites.

In an hour you could have handled about 10 photos maximum, so the problem was framed – we needed an application, which could have done quick analysis and process of a big amount of images. Using all the last achievements in programming, the first prototype of AI-based assistant was developed.

Dogs are undoubtedly one of the friendliest animals in the world towards their owners. Empathetic and companionable, they’re almost like us in their regular lives. Dogs have hobbies and food preferences, they adore active lifestyle, games, and a good sleep. But most importantly — they make us happy and teach us how to enjoy every day of our lives by their own example.

Dogs are a boon to photographers, who love shooting wild animals and nature, yet, these pets are very prone to get into funny situations too. There are hundreds of viral videos and photos, which were taken by vigilant owners and uploaded on the Internet, where different dog breeds make everyone around laugh because of their inborn cheerfulness (and clumsiness). There’s even more of amusing materials stored on flash drivers or external HDDs all around the world. After a few months of ownership, it’s OK to find your whole phone or camera gallery conquered by the images of your pet in all kinds of positions, situations and moods.

Plenty of similar photos in the camera memory is a very common problem for people who like to imprint the most significant moments of their friendship with pets. Moreover, it’s a big trouble when among dog photos you can’t find some important images. Such significant, yet, memo polluting shots accumulate on your SD card until there’s no empty space for new pictures.

Who Created Wi-Fi Technology

Hedy Lamarr. Yes, we should thank that same actress for using the Internet Wi-Fi and GPS. How did it happen?

Hedy was born in Austria in 1913. Being a Jew, she hid her origins in every way. In 1933, Hedy starred in the film “Ecstasy”.  It was the first time in the history of cinema when a completely naked actress was shown. In many countries the film was banned. The parents of the actress worried about their daughter’s reputation. Therefore, they married her to the arms tycoon Fritz Mandl. He was also a Jew. In addition, most importantly, it was Fritz who produced grenades and cartridges for Hitler.

Her husband was very jealous, and Hedy had to leave the movie. But she accompanied her husband to military laboratories and quickly figured out the principle of the action of anti-ship weapons and guidance systems.

Lamarr was not happy with her husband. Once Hedy escaped. The girl ran first to London, and then to the USA. In Hollywood, she was noticed by Louis Mayer, the founder of Metro Golden Mayer.

When radio-guided missiles were adopted, a serious problem arose. Opponents easily violated the guidance of the torpedo, revealing its frequency. Then Hedy Lamarr, together with George Antheil, whom she had met in London, came up with how to protect the torpedo control over the radio (she also assisted with the creation of controlled torpedoes).

Here’s how it worked: a random code was used on the transmitter that would change the transmission channel. At the same time, frequency transitions were synchronized on the receiver. The invention of Lamarr and Antheil became the basis of Spread Spectrum – the connection with the extended spectrum, which is used everywhere. These are GPS and Wi-Fi.

Lamarr was forgotten in the last years of her life. She lived poorly. Moreover, Hedy was engaged in litigation about slander and unauthorized use of her name. For example, in 1998 Corel Draw, a program for graphic design, used a portrait of an actress. Hedy immediately filed a lawsuit, but her claim was dismissed.

Residents of Arizona will be able to pay taxes with Bitcoin, Ripple and Ethereum

Arizona can become the first US state, whose residents will soon be able to pay taxes using cryptocurrency. The corresponding bill was passed by the State Senate this week.

16 senators endorsed the bill, 13 legislators opposed it, but in the end, a three-vote margin was enough to pass the document. Now the bill will be forwarded to the Arizona House of Representatives for further consideration.

How can it change the life in Arizona?

The representative of the Republican Party Jeff Waninger noted that changes in the state’s tax law will make Arizona a comfortable place to live for users of new technologies. He also believes that in this way Arizona sends a signal to everyone in the US and the rest of the world that in the future the state will be open to blockchain and digital currencies.

At the same time, the representative of the Democratic Party, Steve Farley, warns that the bill shifts the “load of volatility” of bitcoin prices to taxpayers who will continue to use the US dollar.

“It would mean that the money goes to the state and then the state has to take responsibility of how to exchange it,” said Steve Farley.

CES18: Mercedes Smart Vision EQ – Two-Seater Autonomous Vehicle

Smart-Vision EQ from Mercedes-Benz demonstrated its unique opportunities at the recent CES 2018 show in Las Vegas. It was first shown at the Frankfurt motor show in September. Engineers have completed autonomous control systems and connectivity options. The result was a car built on the platform Smart Fortwo, which is capable of winking at pedestrians. Moreover, it has the fifth autonomy level and welcomes passengers by their names.

Talking car

Thanks to the fifth autonomy level, the car does not have a steering wheel and pedals in the cabin. Mercedes says that the concept is not intended for sale to private individuals. Instead, it will be a part of the fleet of autonomous cars of the future. The company sees that in a few years such cars will come to the destination and greet their passengers by their names. They will get to know all the information needed through to the connection service between cars-taxi data and photos.

As soon as the passenger has been taken to the destination, Smart Vision EQ politely bids him farewell. An interesting feature is the car’s equipment with hygiene products. Therefore, people can, while in the salon, for example, clean their hands or have lunch.

Mercedes has updated the front display with the image of the Las Vegas Strip Boulevard, which was installed by default. During the show, he made several short trips at a distance of about 500 metres. For passengers it was absolutely new and exciting experience riding a car with the fifth autonomy level.

However, the trip was not absolutely autonomous. A technician controlled the car through the remote control. The manufacturer has not risked the safety of people in such a crowded place yet. However, the experiment gave a clear idea of what the traffic would be in the near future.

A Gadget that will Never be Released

When you look at some tech concepts, there is a painful feeling: what a pity that this is not yet invented!

The idea of Swiss designers from HandyAbovergleich evokes opposite emotions, at least for those users who print a lot. Their conceptual model of the MacBook is equipped with a touch screen, a touchpad and a trackpad that occupies the entire bottom of the laptop. Such a decision could appeal to designers and artists. For common users, it does not fit.

Earlier, the chief designer of the corporation Johnny Ive and senior vice-president of marketing Phil Schiller have repeatedly stated that Apple will not produce “vertical” touch surfaces. According to experts, this increases the load on the hands and completely not ergonomic. This is what Steve Jobs himself said.

Therefore, there is no reason to expect the appearance of a touch screen on the MacBook in the next few years. However, TouchBar appeared instead of the usual top row of buttons in the model MacBook Pro 2017.

The messages concerning Apple’s interest in such technologies sometimes occurs on the Internet. The concept of HandyAbovergleich simply combines the idea of ​​a touch screen and a dynamic keyboard. Designers believe that on such a device you can draw using Apple Pencil.

Steve Jobs once said that a stylus would never be used on Apple devices Apple. They are uncomfortable and easy to lose. Nevertheless, in 2015, the corporation introduced a “pencil”, compatible with the iPad Pro. Let us hope that this is the only one of the founders’ outlines, which the modern management of the corporation dared to violate.
