The Future of Human and Machine Conversation

We are growing and evolving with every passing day or year. However, this evolution is certainly not limited to cognitive skills, social interactions, and early intellectual maturity that we see in children of this era.

The biggest evolution that has brought a complete change to our lives, and most importantly our personality, is the unhindered expansion of technology. And, to the extent that we are now even talking to “it”!

Yes, if we want to go to a restaurant in our locality but don’t know where it is located, we just ask our smartphone, Siri, Cortana, or any other virtual assistant you name it. Let me remind you, we ask and not type on any in-app search box. Maybe it’s just we being lazy or simply a benefit of technological advancement that has added a greater level of convenience to our lives.

Whatever the case is, now we are talking to our technology to get things done fast. Best part is that we, or others passing us by on streets or sitting behind us in a restaurant, don’t find it weird not even in the least.

But there’s an annoyance that comes with this technology…

When it comes to using microphones on our hand-free sets or the virtual assistants like Siri or Cortana, we’ve to bring the device closer to our mouth and speak in a very clear voice to let the other human or machine understand us. You may even find yourself screaming in the hallway or down the street if you’re using Bluetooth headsets.

Still, these technologies seem to be improving. Microphones are now coming with a wide range so that you don’t need to shout out loud to put your message across to the recipient. Likewise, you don’t need to yet to your virtual assistant to ask it to open the contacts or call the recipient. One great example is the Apple TV. When a demo of the Apple TV given in a recent keynote, the employees specifically pointing the fact to the users that they don’t have to bring the remote closer to their mouth to execute any command.

Furthermore, there are now high-end Bluetooth air-buds being produced that you can put in your ear and talk in your usual tone.

All in all, technology is sure going to evolve to an extent that the machines will sooner going to comprehend and respond to emotional queues. When this happens, would it be creepy or exciting? You decide.


Google Upping Its Game by Introducing Its Two New Adwords Products: Customer Match and Universal App Campaigns

What’s the most popular Google product that drives millions and billions of revenue to its already brimming treasury? It’s Google Adwords. According to 2015 report, Google generates over US$44.46 billion revenue through its ads marketing alone. Now, the big G is planning to kick its ads business up a notch by introducing two new advertising models: Customer Match and Universal App Campaign.

Starting with the Customer Match ad campaign, this new model will allow advertisers to upload their mailing lists to the Adwords. The Customer Match, as the name suggests, will match the list with the users who are signed-in on Gmail, Google Web Search and Youtube, ultimately showing them the intended advertises.

Take for instance a crockery store that can upload the emails of its customers to the Customer Match campaign. The next time the same customers make any relevant search, they would be shown ads from the crockery store which will then follow the users to their Gmail, Web Search and even on Youtube.

However, targeting the ads to the advertisers’ uploaded email isn’t the only thing this new model would do. Google will also allow the advertisers to use the data from the same mailing lists to find more signed-in users who, however, may not be in the list but have the same profile.

The concept behind this ad business isn’t new, unless you have never tried Facebook ad marketing before. Yes, Facebook has already been using this model for 2 to 3 years.

Another advertising model that Google added to its inventory is the Universal App Campaign, or simply the Android app advertising tool. As you may have guessed by now, this new product targets its ads to app users across Google’s app platforms like Google Play, Search as well as Youtube. However, it has not been cleared yet whether it’d function the same as the Customer Match, i.e., follow the user from his/her Gmail to Google Play or Youtube.

Google’s Soon Going to Equip 400 Indian Train Stations with Free WiFi

India is blessed with the most rapidly growing IT industry in the world. However, even with such an enormous IT industry, it still has a huge population completely deprived of the Internet. In fact, many lower-class Indians don’t even know what internet is and how to use it. Regardless, this is soon going to change with the internet expansion project Google’s new CEO, Sundar Pechai, bringing to his native country, India.

Google unveiled its grand project of making Internet available to every household in India when Indian President, Mr. Mohdi, paid a visit to Google’s HQ in Silicon Valley. The plan is to install WiFis in 400 railway stations in India, with the first few 100 train stations expected to be loaded with WiFi by 2016. Best of all, all the WiFis will initially be made available free of cost to amplify its usage and exposure.


However, why the railway stations? Why aren’t any other places chosen as the WiFi hotspots? Well, the reason is very clear- India has one of the busiest train stations in the world. According to a 2011 survey, India has the 4th largest railway network in the world with transporting over 7 billion passengers and 900+ million tons of freight. That’s the big reason why Google chose Indian railway stations for its internet expansion project.

Mr.Pechai further made it very clear in the Google’s official blog, “It will also be fast—many times faster than what most people in India have access to today, allowing travelers to stream a high definition video while they’re waiting, research their destination, or download some videos, a book or a new game for the journey ahead.”

However, don’t confuse this project with a humanitarian work since it doesn’t appear to be. Google revealed this grand project soon after Microsoft unveiled its cheap broadband plan that is said to cover 500, 000 Indian villagers. Needless to say, Facebook is also amongst the contenders trying to mark their territories by providing grand-level internet-expansion projects.

What to Expect When Virtual Reality Officially Hits the Shelves

The concept of virtual reality isn’t new. Remember the 80s American cartoon Jonny Quest? Oh, not a 80s person, then what about the anime Sword Art Online based on VR MMORPG? Yeah! Then you do know what Virtual Reality is and how much potential this cutting-edge technology holds.

However, what we truly know about it apart from the abstract fantasies that conjure up in our imaginative minds? I guess not much, isn’t it? So, let’s discuss today what the future of VR holds, what can we really expect from it, and more importantly when it’s going to show up.

We Get to Embrace Fantastic Personality

Believe it or not, we all live a dual personality in our daily life. For example, some of us are introverts but when we get behind a screen, we immediately switch to a more extrovert mind. It is because internet, or social media channels to be exact, has given us a level of freedom to express our fantasies.

However, the VR will put that freedom on steroids when we get to embrace our alter-ego in a more immersive world. We will have a persona that is more in line with our expectations or desire than in real life. Plus, we won’t be bounded by any worldly rules or universal principles. We can be Superman, Batman, Spider, Thor, or Gokko shooting Kamehameha in our virtual realm.

There’ll be a Need of More Brains than Brown

As the name suggests, we will live in a virtual world that is not restricted to any worldly rules. Hence, there we won’t need more muscles or packs, but intelligence. After all, we would be able to change our appearance whenever we desire. However, we can’t change our intellect no matter how hard we try. As it is what that comes with us when we born.

To navigate through the virtual realm, we will need more intelligence. Since we won’t be jumping with our body in the real space but using the power of our mind to do the tricks and stunts.

Completely Immersive Experience

Stretching the above point, we are still way behind in embracing the fully immersive VR experience. If we talk about our current standings, we can still feel the heavy VR gears wrapped around our heads, hands or waists.

So, if you are thinking about a compact VR gear as that shown in Sword Art Online, you can sit back and relax for a decade or more because we still need more research in the field to make that happen.

Intel Join CSIRO to Protect the Collapsing Colonies of Honey Bees with Intel Edison Breakout Board Kit

Can you imagine a world without honey bees protecting our ecosystem? Can you imagine what would happen if there’s an intense shortage of pollination? The results would be highly unfavorable for mankind as the fertilization would be reduced and so would be the food production.

To fight off this immense threat, CSIRO, an Australian science and research organization, started a Global Initiative for Honey Bee Health (GIHH) which will be now advanced by CSIRO’s new partner (for this initiative), the Intel Corp.

What’s Intel Cooperation in This Initiative

For the first time Intel will use its cutting-edge technology in a peculiar fashion unlike anything it has done before. Intel will provide CSIRO Intel® Edison Breakout Board kit – for distribution – which is a “customizable compute platform, slightly larger than a postage stamp,” says Intel in its official blog.

The kit will be integrated into the honey bees’ Beehive to monitor their daily activity from their behaviors and movements down to the stressors that affect their health, via Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) tags. Thousands of such tags have already been places onto the honey bees as part of the GIHH process.

The data gathered from the platform at the Data Access Portal of CSIRO will be provided to farmers, beekeepers and the government which will then be reviewed and acted upon accordingly. Professor Paulo de Souza, CSIRO Science Leader, says

“Bee colonies are collapsing around the world and we don’t know why. Due to the urgent and global nature of this issue, we saw the need to develop a methodology that any scientist could easily deploy. This way we can share and compare data from around the world to collaboratively investigate bee health. This united effort is a fantastic example of the Internet of Things.”

What Do We Know About Intel Edison Platform

About the platform Souza says, “The Intel Edison Breakout Board kit is the perfect platform for this type of research. It’s incredibly reliable, small in size, flexible with programming, and has low power consumption. It’s also easily customizable which means that if a scientist has a sensor they would like to add, they can virtually plug in and play.”

Once the data extracted from the Intel Edison platform and sent to the researchers, they will be able to produce visual (most probably 3D models) reports that will contain the entire activity of the Honey bees such as their movements and responses to internal or external stressors. Plus, the board with also provide some added information such as humidity around the beehive, solar radiation and more.

Google Project Ara Modular Mobiles – The Revolutionary Smartphones

Owning a desktop PC seems to be the most preferred choice of many users. Why, you may ask? Perhaps, it is because desktop machines let you customize them the way you see fit. If you need more memory, you can just open the side-lid of your PC’s casing and replace the current one with a new. Simple!

What if the same notion could be applied to smartphones as well? How wonderful would it be to have a mobile that has customizable features? Luckily, Google Project Ara will bring such technology in your hands soon- a modular smartphone that you’ve been waiting for years.

Project Ara Inception

Project Ara is an open hardware system. It was the inception of Motorola before it was acquired by Google. While in Motorola, the project was worked on and supervised by the Motorola Advanced Technology and Project group, which later bossed by Google after acquisition. Although in 2014 Lenovo acquired Motorola from Google but the “Big G” didn’t give away its Google Advanced Technology and Project group, along with some other patents.

What’s a Modular Smartphone

Modular smartphone will be much like a desktop PC in that it will come with a basic exoskeleton that can be customized as you see fit using different modules. There will be a modular for camera, memory, front display, and more. Since it is an open hardware platform, there will be modules not only by Google but also third party developers, which will be available on a Google Play like store.

What made modular smartphones so amazing apart from their customizable features is that the modules can be changed without the need of turning off the phone first. The modules will be connected with the device using electropermanent magnets.

Operating System for Project Ara Modular Mobiles

Since the modular smartphone may come under the umbrella of Google projects, it will use Google’s flagship OS, android, although it’d be slightly tweaked for compatibility with the device. However, it is still open to debate whether it will be an official android or not as Ara isn’t an official product of Google but a “development effort”.

The Launch and Cost of Project Ara

Although the phone is still in its development phase, the project was expected to be launched in 2015. However, later in 2015 the project’s launched date was moved to 2016. Regarding the smartphone’s price, it was stated that the “production cost” of the modular mobile is around $50 to $100. According to the officials, the final cost will be decided once the carrier contract is made.

take break from work

Prolonged Sitting at Workplace with Little to No Breaks Leads to Increased Chances of Coronary Heart Disease & Stroke

Heart diseases seem to be a growing concern in today’s era. Prevalent among both men and women alike, studies show that 1 in every 4 deaths in US alone are caused by heart diseases.

So, why heart related problems are so prevalent in today’s society and to such an alarming extent? There could be a number of factors that lead to heart disease risks including factors like heredity, old age, high BP, poor diet, diabetes, and obesity to name a few.

However, recent a recent study, conducted by Professor Mika Kivimaki and many other professors, shows that there’s another factor at play that increases heart disease: excessive work with lack of breaks.

The study was conducted among 6, 03,838 men and women who initially didn’t had coronary heart disease, and 528 908 men and women who didn’t had any stroke problem.

The study shows that people working longer than 50+ hours per week are more at risk of developing both coronary heart disease and stroke than those working, the standard 30 – 40 hours/week.

The study is pretty alarming for those who rarely steps out of their 47” tall 4’ x 2’ cubicle. The reason for longer work hours could be anything from more pay, workaholism, etc. Regardless of the reasons, it is essential to take breaks from work in between to rejuvenate both mind and body for a healthy life.

It is not just the employee who should cut back from late sitting or overtimes, but it is the duty of the employers to take better care of their employees. After all, healthy employees means, productive employees.


Although research like this tends to surface every now and then with industry giants promising and even promoting a fun and healthy workplace, some tend to seem unaware of the mistreatment of their employees in their child-branches located in different countries such as Apple and Amazon.

Regardless, employees healthy should be given preference over mere marginal gains. After all, it is what we call a humane thing to do.
