Men who pose topless on Tinder are seen as less competent and more promiscuous, study reveals

Daily Mail - Science & tech

While dating apps were once seen as taboo, they're now one of the main ways that singletons find love around the world. But if you have a profile on a dating app, a new study may encourage you to reassess which pictures you include. Researchers from the University of Colorado have revealed that men who pose topless on Tinder are seen as less competent and more promiscuous. The first dating app can be traced back to 1995 when Match.com was first launched. The website allowed single people to upload a profile, a picture and chat to people online.


Ethics And Conversational Assistants

#artificialintelligence

It is utopian to rule out any form of anthropomorphism when addressing a conversational assistant because of the use of language as a vector of exchange. Designers, therefore, must limit these shortcomings with the implementation of these design rules, thus reducing the risks of deception and dependency, and giving confidence in these systems.


Google Assistant arrives on the Samsung Galaxy Watch 4

ZDNet

Matthew Miller started using mobile devices in 1997 and has been writing news, reviews, and opinion pieces ever since. He was a co-host, with Kevin Tofel, of the MobileTechRoundup podcast for 13 years and authored three Wiley Companion series books. Last year we were impressed with the Samsung Google partnership and Samsung's efforts to integrate Wear OS into its smartwatches running its Samsung Exynos mobile processor. We then purchased and tested the Galaxy Watch 4 Classic and deemed it a worthy competitor to the Apple Watch. A few months ago Samsung released a major software update that improved health and wellness features, while also confirming to the public that Google Assistant was still in the works.


Google Assistant is now available on the Samsung Galaxy Watch 4

Engadget

Galaxy Watch 4 users can now start using Google Assistant on the device. Along with being available in the app tray, you can trigger Assistant via voice command and assign it to a long press on the home button. In addition, today's update offers users access to Google Pay, Maps and YouTube Music. During Google I/O earlier this month, Samsung said Google Assistant support would arrive on the device sometime this summer, so it's arriving earlier than some may have expected. Patrick Chomet, Samsung's executive vice president of products and experience, noted that Assistant would allow for "faster and more natural voice interactions."


Artificial Intelligence: Its benefits and challenges - Clover Infotech

#artificialintelligence

Artificial Intelligence was first popularized by a small group of scientist gathered at the Dartmouth College in the United States in 1956. Since then, AI has advanced considerably and is powering many real-world applications ranging from facial recognition to language translators and virtual assistants such as Siri and Alexa. Still, we are far from witnessing AI-powered robots emulating humans. So far that is confined to the Sci-Fi movies. However, AI has created quite a stir in the business world with its many benefits and challenges.


Building Smarter Apps Using Mobile Artificial Intelligence

#artificialintelligence

Mobile artificial intelligence is disrupting the already breakneck-paced mobile app development game. In 2020, the mobile AI sector reached a valuation of 2.14 billion dollars, and that number is expected to grow 4.5x by the year 2026. It's safe to say that mobile artificial intelligence is here to stay, so let's find out how this innovative technology is used in mobile app development. Mobile artificial intelligence aims at making mobile technology smarter and more functional for users. A well-known example of the power of mobile AI is Amazon's Alexa Shopping product, which has freed up countless hours of customer support grunt work for Amazon.

AI's role is poised to change monumentally in 2022 and beyond – TechCrunch

#artificialintelligence

The latest developments in technology make it clear that we are on the precipice of a monumental shift in how artificial intelligence (AI) is employed in our lives and businesses. First, let me address the misconception that AI is synonymous with algorithms and automation. This misconception exists because of marketing. Think about it: When was the last time you previewed a new SaaS or tech product that wasn't "fueled by" AI? This term is becoming something like "all-natural" on food packaging: ever-present and practically meaningless.


Conversational AI Platform as Digital Fabric for Banks - Elets BFSI

#artificialintelligence

Conversational AI is a type of artificial intelligence that facilitates the human like conversation between a human and a software system in real time. It is a piece of software that a person can talk to, like chatbot, social messaging app, interactive agent, or smart device. These applications enable users to ask questions, get opinions, find support, or complete tasks remotely. Conversational systems are powered by a conversational engine named NLP (Natural Language Processing, a branch of AI that deals with linguistic and conversational cognitive science). They make use of large volumes of data processed with machine learning, and natural language processing to aid imitate human interactions, recognizing speech and text inputs and translating their meanings in different languages. Businesses can setup automated chatbots or virtual assistants that can communicate with humans via voice or text and in different languages of user preferences.


Top Machine Learning Trends for 2022

Blockchain is the new talk of the town. It is the technology behind cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin. Today, it has turned out to be a game-changer for businesses. Its decentralized ledger offers transparency and immutability in transactions between parties without any intermediary. The transactions are irreversible, which means once a ledger is updated, it can never be changed or deleted. Blockchain technology will eventually find its space in the new and innovative applications of Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence.
