From chatbots to Driverless cars, Artificial intelligence is rapidly changing the way we work and live, yes AI started changing the world. Google CEO says'AI is more important to humanity than fire, electricity' It is set to bring a huge revolution in the business world. There are multiple areas where it has proven its importance in recent times. These include creating incredible user experiences in E-commerce, Imparting better services at relatively lower costs, optimizing the customer searches and recommendations and generation of sales through wearable technology. One of the trending and most used word E-Commerce, Every business owner started building an E-commerce app and website for their business.
Every other article written today about workplace technology seems to focus on the negative impact it's expected to have on jobs. Artificial intelligence is an especially powerful bogeyman right now, portrayed as a menacing and calculating disruptive force that's poised to wipe corporations clean of messy, meaningless human beings. Can we talk a little bit about the positive effects? Much less attention is being paid to technologies that will significantly benefit the workforce, especially technologies that provide direct aid to workers. Wearable products are being used today that make us smarter and stronger, improve our sight and hearing, and help keep us safer in dangerous environments.
Foveated rendering addresses a growing challenge for VR headsets, rendering sharp details for your eye's visual sweet spot -- the fovea -- and a simpler, blurrier version for your peripheral vision. Now engineers at Facebook Reality Labs have come up with DeepFovea, an AI-assisted alternative that creates "plausible peripheral video" rather than actually rendering accurate peripheral imagery. The new process is known as "foveated reconstruction," and Facebook says it achieves more than 14 times compression on RGB video with no significant degradation in user-perceived quality. When capturing a video stream, DeepFovea samples only 10% of the pixels in each video frame, focusing largely but not exclusively on the area where the user's eye is focused, represented by the lizard head above. By comparison, the peripheral area is sampled only by scattered dots that become less dense further from the eye's focus area.
Gartner has unveiled its biggest predictions for IT organisations and users for 2020 and beyond. These predictions analyse how technology is changing society and the expectations of users. "Technology is changing the notion of what it means to be human," said Daryl Plummer, VP and Fellow at Gartner. "CIOs in end-user organizations must understand the effects of the change and reset expectations for what technology means." "This year's predictions help us move beyond thinking about mere notions of technology adoption and draw us more deeply into issues surrounding what it means to be human in the digital world," said Plummer.
New currencies are being created outside of government control. Art is being created with artificial intelligence. Fake news is generated from deep fake videos and images. Augmented and virtual reality is being created inside the memory of computers. Humans once used physical things to trade value with each other; stones, shells, beads, cheese, bits of metal with simple images.
There has been an exponential increase in R&D related to virtual reality, photorealistic computer animations and augmented reality. Researchers from around the globe are working in these domains and have been creating machines which have the abilities of a human -- or humanoid robots. This is an emerging research domain which is now playing a crucial role in robotics research. However, according to the uncanny valley theory, the humanoid objects which imperfectly resemble actual human beings provoke uncanny or strangely familiar feelings of revulsion in observers. The IEEE spectrum ranks robots into three categories, -- top-rated, creepiest and most wanted.
Whether you're a PC, console or smartphone gamer, there's a wealth of accessories that promise to improve your experience – and your score. But from mechanical keyboards to high dynamic range monitors the choices and jargon can be confusing. Here is our selection of the best gaming peripherals, whatever you play on. There are as many "ultimate" PC gaming set-ups as there are PC gamers – because the range of possibilities is vast and it's such a subjective process. With the mouse, for example, a lot will depend on how big your hands are and whether you prefer to lay your hand flat across the mouse or hold it in a claw-like grip.
Augmented reality and artificial intelligence aren't just for B2C marketers anymore, and as we move into 2020 we're likely to see a new decade of B2B that keeps moving farther away from "Boring-To-Boring" and towards more to B2C-like experiences. AR and AI are a key part of what consumers increasingly expect to find in those experiences. The swiftly rising number of mixed-reality consumer app installations is expected to jump from 3 billion to 10 billion by 2024, with associated ad spending forecast to climb from $2 billion in 2019 to $11 billion, according to new Juniper Research data. While AR and AI in consumer-facing efforts keeps expanding with a full head of steam, such as Warner Bros. first-ever embedded AR for its upcoming "Scoob!" film trailer and mobile app, many in the B2B landscape have scarcely begun to tap into the AI-infused technology available. Let's take a look at five B2B brands that are innovating with a variety of AR and AI marketing initiatives.
Continuing on the trail of smart security systems exhibiting security issues, now joins Amazon's smart doorbells. Researchers found a serious vulnerability in the Ring Video Doorbell. Researchers from Bitdefender have discovered a serious security vulnerability in Amazon's Ring Video Doorbell. As elaborated in a white paper, the researchers found that the Ring Video Doorbell actually exposed the homes' security to attacks over WiFi. Exploiting the flaw required an attacker to be in close proximity to the target home.
