For good or bad, artificial intelligence has become ubiquitous.

Thanks to AI, Amazon recommends items based on your browsing and purchase history. Facebook presents you with targeted ads after crawling your online profile and learning your behavior. And artificially intelligent smartphone apps respond to queries, recognize faces in photographs, and help you remember where you parked your car.

But researchers don’t just see AI as a tool to predict and address our everyday needs. It can now be used to help solve some of the most important social and economic issues of our day. In fact, scientists are harnessing AI’s data-mining ability in the fight against poverty—what the United Nations calls today’s greatest global challenge.

Apple HomePod vs. Amazon Echo: The similarities and differences

Leave a comment

.

At Monday’s Worldwide Developers Conference, Apple unveiled its latest hardware: HomePod. It’s a speaker — the gadget costs $350 and will be available in December — that will bring Apple Music and voice assistant Siri to your home. The smart assistant speaker has immediately been compared to others in the market like Amazon Echo, Echo Dot and Google Home.

“What we tried to do is build something that is a breakthrough speaker first,” Apple CEO Tim Cook told Bloomberg. “Music is deep in our DNA, dating back from iTunes and iPod. And so we wanted something that, No. 1, sounded unbelievable. I think when people listen to it, they are going to be shocked over the quality of the sound. And of course it does a lot of other things too … but we wanted a really high-quality audio experience as well.”

Mark Zuckerberg explains why he just changed Facebook’s mission

Leave a comment

.

Mark Zuckerberg has spent the last dozen years making sure you know what your friends’ babies look like and what your high school friends think about politics.

And, of course, transforming media and politics by presenting news and opinion — true and fake — to billions of people around the world.

 Now the Facebook CEO is acknowledging that connecting people online isn’t enough.
.

“We used to have a sense that if we could just do those things, then that would make a lot of the things in the world better by themselves,” Zuckerberg told CNN Tech. “But now we realize that we need to do more too. It’s important to give people a voice, to get a diversity of opinions out there, but on top of that, you also need to do this work of building common ground so that way we can all move forward together.”

Snapping your squad all at once is super easy. Instead of manually sending the same snaps to multiple people, Snapchat allows you to create groups. Each group can accommodate up to 16 users.

The “floor is lava” challenge is the latest teen trend and game taking over Snapchat and Instagram

Leave a comment

In 2010 we had “icing.” Then came “planking.” Then, of course, the infamous ice bucket challenge. If Snapchat and Instagram are any indication, this summer’s hottest viral prank could be the “lava challenge.”

It’s a simple game. A friend shouts “the floor is lava!” and you have exactly 5 seconds to get to higher ground. This could mean climbing a store shelf, hopping on a fire hydrant or jumping on the counter of a fast-food restaurant.

The game itself has been around on schoolyards for years — you probably remember it from your childhood — but a pair of friends named Kevin Freshwater and Jahannah James helped it reach viral new heights.

Super-Brainy Translation Tools Mean Language Barriers Are Falling Fast

Leave a comment

.

Scientists say there are more than 6,900 languages in the world, and anyone who’s traveled abroad knows how hard it can be to get even simple points across in a foreign tongue.

Breaking down language barriers has long been a dream of science fiction — “Star Trek” had its Universal Translator to help the Enterprise crew understand exotic alien speech, and C3PO from “Star Wars” knew more than 6 million forms of communication from across the galaxy.

Now, thanks to advances in real-time translation software, the dream of speaking to anyone regardless of language is closer to reality than ever. Experts say human translators won’t be out of work anytime soon — they’re vital for legal proceedings, diplomatic discussions, and scenarios when exact word choice and tone are necessary — but new inexpensive digital tools allow people to speak easily in situations where communication once seemed impossible.
