7 Must Have Gadgets In 2019

  Headphones: Sony WH-1000XM3 Our recommendation for the best headphones, the ideal wireless and the very best noise cancelling headphones is the Sony WH-1000XM3. Simply speaking, we actually approve of those cans. Sony wins sound quality and layout, together with touch controls on the ideal earcup that work superbly along with a battery life that lasts around 30 hours. Together with USB-C rapid charging and outstanding wireless sound performance, these superstars are worth every cent. Exercise tracker: Fitbit Alta HR If you don't have a fitness tracker, then the Fitbit Alta HR is a wonderful place to get started. Unlike a smartwatch, the battery lasts a whole week and the slim and discreet ring houses plenty of tech. It tracks steps, calories burned off, sleep and heart rate, includes extras such as hourly mini goals and comes in six colors with accessory bands sold separately. The only disadvantage is it's not waterproof.   Laptop: Dell XPS 13 The Dell XPS

unsplash-logo Jason Rosewell You might have heard of the miracles artificial intelligence is doing these days. From movie recommendation on Netflix to Sophia, the robot, from intelligent humanoids in video games to super intelligent Google Assistant, artificial intelligence is dominating most aspects of our lives. It has an impact on our present and future in either way. Continuing the pursuit to a technology intensive future, Facebook in collaboration with Tel Aviv University published their new research last week on arxiv.org ( Unsupervised Singing Voice Conversion ). Researchers at Facebook have trained an intelligent machine which can instantly convert audio of one singer to voice of another singer. You check the sample results here . All that is needed is to record a song in own "beautiful" voice and feed the file to the machine. AI will never disappoint you. The results will astound you.   Summary of the work According to authors of the work, Our approach

Samsung Galaxy Fold: A Smart Phone or A TV Remote?

Image
This week The South Korea electronics company has revealed Samsung Fold to media. Bloggers and YouTubers have got their hands on the device but it is not yet released for customers. The phone comes with novel technology, a foldable screen. Although it is a huge move to make smartphones smarter but customers feedback has yet to be seen. Prior to the release of the phone, it is hard to say whether Samsung Galaxy Fold is something that users wanted or something that users needed. MAYA (Most Advanced, Yet Acceptable), a theory by Raymond Loewy who has designed almost everything says that the most advanced design should be given to users, but not more advanced than what they are able to accept and embrace. An innovation is more likely to be welcomed by its user if it lies at the intersection of novelty and familiarity. If the product is full of astounding innovation but people are not familiar with it and vice versa, the chances of failures are high. As people have seen foldable phones

Deep Learning: A Quick Overview

Photo by William Stitt on Unsplash This photo is from 1980, and the reason why we are dwelling into history is that neural networks along with deep learning have been around for quite some time. They have started picking up now and impacting the world right now, but if you look back into the 80s you will realize that even though they computers weren’t invented in 60s and 70s they really caught on to a trend and got the wind in 80, So people started talking about them a lot. There was done a lot of research in that area and everybody thought that deep learning or neural networks this new thing that is going to impact the world and is going to change everything and will solve all the world problems. And then it kind of slowly died for the next decade. So what happened why didn’t the neural networks survived and not change the world? The reason was they were not just good enough, they are not that good at predicting things, and not that good at modeling or they were not a

Games on Play Store Which Can Ruin Your Kids' Lives: Be Aware

Photo by Boxed Water Is Better on Unsplash Young Kids can download and play games packed with Shooting, stabbing, gore and micro transaction gambling on Google's Play Store even when parents turn on controllers to make them toddler-friendly. All these games and programs have something in common: they are marked as being safe for young children. Few examples are given here. Mad Max Zombies An Android first-person shooter, full of spurting blood, disturbing imagery of walking corpses and realistic firearms, has been  rated by its creator as Pegi 3 - a rating that is considered appropriate for all age classes, with no sounds or pictures that are very likely to frighten young children and only the lightest, most childlike depictions of violence. It is just one gory example of a growing problem. The Play Store is filled with apps that withstand Google's era rating policy and filtering tools. A number of those matches have been installed millions of times. After we sen

7 Awesome Examples of Computer Vision

Photo by David Travis on Unsplash Though early experiments in computer vision started from the 1950s  and it was initially put to use to distinguish between handwritten and typed text from the 1970s. Today the applications for computer vision have increased exponentially. In this article, we will share with you some of the recent implementation trends of computer vision. What's Computer Vision (CV)? Computer vision is the use of computers which process visual data and then make conclusions from it or gain understanding about the situation and the surroundings. One of the factors behind the growth of computer vision is the amount of data today which we use subsequently to train and improve computer vision machines. We have a bulk amount of visual data in the form of images and videos produced by built-in cameras of our phones alone. However, while visual data can include photos and  videos, it can also get information from other sources and detectors. Besides with t

5 Mistakes that I've Made: You Don't Repeat It.

Image
unsplash-logo Nathan Dumlao Being human, all of us are subject to make mistakes. Mistakes which can take us down to the hell or up to the sky. No body wants to make a single mistake but it just happens. It happens without our intention. I haven't heard of anyone who intentionally make mistakes again and again. What the word mistake means to me is if we set a goal and take actions to achieve those goals and we mis our target, we call our action a mistake. It means we failed to hit our target by taking an action with a bad timing or in a wrong way. We plan, we prepare and pursue towards our goal. If we mis, we get an unwanted reaction which nobody loves. It is up to us how do we react to the reaction. Either we repeat the same mistake, which sounds foolish, doesn't it? yes it does sound foolish. or we learn from it and change our course of action. So I can say that there are two sides of a mistake too. Here I will share with you 5 mistakes that I have made
