Future AI


The optimism of AI researchers about the future has changed over the years, and even modern experts are arguing about it. Trevor Sands, an explorer of AI from Lockheed Martin, has been cautious in his assessments:

With the advent of SRI as a concept, researchers and optimists claim that it is not long to wait, just a few decades. Personally, I think that we will see the emergence of the AII in the next 50 years, since iron has been brought up to the level of theory, and more and more organizations see the potential in AI. AIS is a natural conclusion to existing attempts at investigating AI.

During this time, even a reasonable AI can appear, as Albert says (another AI researcher who asked us to mention him only by pseudonym):

I hope to see him during my lifetime. At the very least, I hope to see cars that are smart enough for people to argue whether they have consciousness. And what this really means is a more complicated question. If the mind means "self-consciousness&…

The first experience of realizing the real estate market

Industry after industry lends itself to an all-pervasive digital "Uberization", which is based on process automation, as well as a transparent and simple connection between the customer and the contractor. Meanwhile, Uber, the company in whose honor the process was named, opened some ten years ago. Now the scenario in which we call a taxi through the aggregator application is very different from what it was at the beginning of the zero. Today, the basic user case is outwardly stunningly simple: open the application → choose where to go → call a taxi: it usually takes a couple of minutes to do everything about everything.

The same thing, only faster, is happening with the food delivery business, the digital part of which has grown into a giant foodtech industry; by 2022, according to the Research and Markets forecast, the global turnover of this sector will reach $ 250 billion. Five years ago, “I would order lunch in the application” seemed more exotic and entertainment for …

IOT and its anticipation

Image
Actually more and more often on the Internet, a description of various Internet devices appears. So someone made their Internet outlet , here the guys offer to manage refrigerators, coffee makers, etc. , but in general - “smart” parking . But, as it turned out, not many people actually represent what the “Internet of Things” is.


This article should be useful to many, at least "for common development."
So anyone interested, welcome under cat.

Instead of introducing

Once I heard the phrase "the concept of the Internet of things." From one wording, it immediately became clear that we are talking about things that have access to the network. Then I was not particularly interested in this area. After some time, I heard the phrase: "Internet of Things ...". Even then I thought that the man made a reservation, the phrase was kind of ridiculous. But then more and more often I began to hear the same phrase, while my brain refused to perceive it, until I finally d…

Heart attack sufferers name strange symptom of illness

Image
Foreign researchers have concluded that pain in the left shoulder is one of the main symptoms of a heart attack.

Experts explained that many people who had a heart attack complained to doctors about the acute pain in the shoulder, which appeared before the attack itself.


According to Dr. Kenneth Rosenfield, the classic symptom of the condition - chest pain - actually occurs only half the time.


Scientists have discovered another cause of overweight
- Many speak of intense, crushing sensation or deep pain in the shoulder. The symptom cannot be ignored, because in most cases it warns of an imminent threat, the specialist noted.

Among other symptoms of a heart attack, experts identified pain that can spread to the left or right arm, give to the neck, jaw, back, or abdomen. A feeling of nausea, sweating, shortness of breath may appear.

Sony PlayStation prices may jump

Image
Sony Corp. intends to raise prices for PlayStation game consoles for American buyers, if tariffs on Chinese components are increased. About the upcoming rise in price of consoles said the founding director of Sony Hiroki Totoki, writes The Wall Street Journal .

"Increased tariffs on electronic goods from China will ultimately harm the United States itself," said a senior executive at the Japanese corporation. The manufacturer seriously intends to compensate for the increase in tariffs at the expense of gamers.

Most components for the PlayStation are produced in China.

Earlier this year, Sony, Nintendo and Microsoft asked the US authorities not to introduce higher tariffs for electronics from China, as this could "harm the entire video game industry."

How to increase the speed of a computer or laptop

Image
Over time, the computer’s operating system, especially when it comes to Windows, becomes clogged and starts to run slower than before. The launch of the OS itself and most programs is so slow that it is time to fall asleep, and already downloaded applications respond to keystrokes with a desire more suitable for a snail or a tortoise.


It’s familiar, right? Let's try to figure out why this is happening.



Dust and overheating



A computer and a laptop, most of which have fans, are essentially vacuum cleaners, just very slow. Sooner or later, the intake grilles become clogged with dust and begin to resemble moss-covered trees. In this case, you should take a real vacuum cleaner and properly clean your computer - both outside and inside. At the same time, it makes sense to check whether the fans on the processor and video card are spinning properly.



By the way, overheating is the cause of not only brakes, but also glitches - for example, the sudden closure of programs or their unusual behavi…

Image
A truly “smart” house should be able not only to turn on and off the bulbs, but also to facilitate the performance of ordinary and everyday tasks. This can not be done without household appliances, it is not surprising that key manufacturers have been paying special attention to this topic over the past few years.

3 cool devices you've never heard of

With so many new products and gadgets entering the market every day, it's no wonder you haven't heard anything about them. We decided to collect an updated list of 3 different US products, which are now available for Belarusians. Funds for many of them were collected through crowdfunding. So let's check it out!



CoolAir - modern air conditioning


 This is a much smaller version of a standard air conditioner, but without all the nightmares associated with the installation. You simply fill the inner tank with water, plug it into a USB port (such as a power supply) or into a wall outlet, and it starts to work wonders. Once CoolAir gets started, it will cool any area of ​​your home in minutes.

Facebook will extract information from the brain

Image
Facebook has unexpectedly published an update on its ambitious plans to develop augmented reality glasses that allow “read minds” without the use of special brain implants. This project was not heard for two years, but, apparently, Zuckerberg leaves no hope not only to have all our attention, but also to know what we are thinking about.



Their project is one of the methods of "reading" words and phrases directly from the brain and is one of the stages of the initial ambitious plan of a social network - to develop a wearable device with the same functionality, but without the use of implants.

People can now type using the neurocomputer interface, but the system often asks them to “speak” individual words using the virtual keyboard. An experiment at the University of California was that participants listened to multiple-choice questions and answered aloud. A chain of electrodes recorded activity in those parts of the brain that are responsible for speech recognition and speech…
