The enterprise has been talking about Digital Transformation and Industry 4.0 for years. We have seen transformation accelerate and the adoption of artificial intelligence, connected devices, and even virtual reality speed-up over the last few months due to the pandemic. As enterprise digitization continues to be top of mind and data becomes even more critical in this process, we need to look at how all the data created can be better visualized to generate better business outcomes. The Internet of Things (IoT) allows devices to talk to each other through connected sensors - producing real-time data. Companies had to learn how to process large amounts of data from IoT devices.

For VR environments to be fully immersive, we must strive towards graphics that can mirror reality. Unfortunately, such high-level graphics are difficult to attain in real-time without running into problems with framerate and stuttering gameplay, which breaks immersion and can cause motion sickness in players. The consequence of this is that the majority of VR experiences must use simplistic graphics to keep the experience as smooth as possible. Fortunately, computer graphics titans Nvidia have been utilising deep learning techniques to make such dreams possible. "Deep Learning Super Sampling" is a technology developed by Nvidia which allows high-resolution images to be generated for a low-res image input, allowing for high-quality graphics for VR to be less costly than before.
Google on Wednesday announced the launch of an online tool that uses artificial intelligence to decode and translate Egyptian hieroglyphics. The tool -- called fabricius -- will be useful for presenting an interactive experiment to globalists to help them learn hieroglyphics more efficiently. It will also help increase Egyptologists' awareness of the history and heritage of the ancient Egyptian civilization. The tool was made available on the Google Arts and Culture platform, which allows users to learn about arts and cultural artifacts from roughly 2,000 cultural institutions worldwide. The tool uses machine learning to ease the collection, indexing and understanding of hieroglyphic symbols. The tool to help Egyptologists translate hieroglyphics into English is now available, with the Arabic tool set to unveil soon.
China Mobile is stepping up efforts to promote its 5G and artificial intelligence services by targeting "Generation Z" consumers. M-zone, a popular brand under China Mobile, has teamed up with pop idol Zhang Yixing to popularize new services, including co-branded Xback smartphone phone SIM cards, virtual photo-taking services supported by augmented reality and virtual reality technologies, as well as AI-enabled avatar services. Zhang has also become a partner with M-zone's 5G services and a promoter of its AI services. M-zone's Xback SIM cards are part of the company's broader efforts to better commercialize 5G technologies to create new value. Given Chinese pop idols' growing appeal to tech-savvy, young subscribers, China Mobile hopes pop idols can help boost the popularity of its 5G services.
There is no doubt about the fact that the era we live in is the era of technology. Technology rules our lives and has made everything from shopping, communicating, ordering food, traveling to entertainment, fitness, comfort, and learning easier and more accessible for us. Let's talk about the role of technology in learning, it being the subject of interest to us. The last decade has seen Learning and Development (L&D) professionals making great strides in imparting better learning to corporate learners through the use of technology. For example, blended learning, microlearning, mobile learning, gamification, AR/VR (Augmented Reality/Virtual Reality), simulations, adaptive learning and even AI (Artificial Intelligence) are now being used to develop skills and knowledge in corporate employees. And, all this is possible because of technological advancements.
The world is in the midst of a technological revolution. Rapid developments in artificial intelligence, augmented and virtual reality, edge and quantum computing, autonomous vehicles, precision medicine, nanotechnology and digital biology are transforming the way we live and work, creating new challenges and opportunities. It is essential that federal leaders understand the potential of these breakthrough technologies and capitalize on those with the greatest promise to improve government operations and services. During this time of swift change, the government is taking steps to explore and leverage these emerging technologies. In February, President Trump issued an executive order to strengthen American leadership in artificial intelligence, asserting that the U.S. should "drive technological breakthroughs in AI across the federal government, industry and academia in order to promote scientific discovery, economic competitiveness, and national security."

Realic plan to release the Hybri digital AI partner app next year. A new app is offering the "world's first" AI-based human partner, after having been unveiled by Florida-based augmented reality company Realic. Using a combination of artificial intelligence, VR and AR, Hybri offers customizable smartphone-based virtual partners that respond to the user's personality and learn from interactions. It's due to be launched next year, and promises to provide individuals with companionship during the loneliness of coronavirus self-isolation. Planned before the coronavirus pandemic erupted, the Hybri app lets users create a partner, friend or family member. Once created, the digital partner or friend comes to life using either VR or AR, with users able to interact with them through either a smartphone alone, or through a compatible VR/AR headset.
