Announcing the news in a blog post, Google said it has been implementing machine learning into every research and products they are developing over the last few years.

Christian Howard, editor-in-chief of Google AI Communications:

“To better Prove this commitment, we’re unifying our efforts under ‘Google AI’, which encompasses all the state-of-the-art research happening across Google,” wrote Christian Howard, editor-in-chief of Google AI Communications.

Google also changed the homepage for Google AI so that it features published research on a variety of subject matters, stories of AI in action, and open source material and tools that others can use and develop further. The old Google Research site redirects to the new Google AI site.

Even Google has also renamed the Google Research Twitter and Google+ Social media channels to Google AI as part of the change.

This change was observed after a reshuffle last month that saw Jeff Dean appointed ahead of AI at Google. It also comes after Google co-founder Sergey Brin cautioned on AI development and issues it might cause in future.

Not only google Even Microsoft is betting high on Artificial Intelligence as seen in 2018 Microsoft build conference. Microsoft is collaborating with other Industry Heads like DJI and MI making them to use their latest Azure IOT Edge technology and Artificial Intelligence.

The J-deite RIDE transforms from a vehicle to a robot just like the Megazord from Voltron crazy isn’t. Japanese engineers from brave robotics introduced J-deite RIDE a robot that literally transforms into a car with people on board, they also mentioned that this was the first such accomplishment in the history of robots and robotics.

The “J-deite RIDE” Robot which is 3.7-metre-tall and two-seater capacity can transform into a sports car. The whole process seems automated and takes just a few minutes

It can walk at a speed of 100 metres per hour or drive on its four wheels technically. But developers said they have never really tested it outside other than the factory which is located in cargo bay area.

Brave Robotics CEO Kenji Ishida with Asratec —initiated this project he said that he was motivated by his childhood transformer heroes in anime movies.  (Asratec— is an affiliate of the Japanese mobile phone giant SoftBank).

While also he admitted that it may look like an expensive toy, but the robot is made in an attempt to broaden the human imagination and also this innovation may inspire others to make better robots which help humans in daily life.

Developers said they are implementing the technology in the entertainment industry, such as Malls, amusement parks etc.

If this was a Michael Bay movie, this transformer would take just seconds to form. But this is real life and so I’m still impressed with what our scientists can do.

Yes, Oneplus 6 is about to release and we all know that according to the history of one plus. One plus 6 will look exactly like its partner oppo r15.

On May 17th 2018, OnePlus is about to launch its new flagship device, the OnePlus 6. One plus 6 succeeds OnePlus 5T which was launched in November 2017. The OnePlus 6 is highly anticipated as it will be one of the most affordable flagship devices in India. One plus is the top 2nd premium smartphone seller in India after apple.

One plus 6 Price :

The OnePlus 5, was criticised for its price tag during the launch. The smartphone was priced higher than the OnePlus 3T without offering features like wireless charging or water Proof. However, the OnePlus 5T justified the price tag with its amazing performance. The 64GB version of the OnePlus 6 could be priced at Rs. 35999(550 $),  8GB RAM and 256GB internal memory is likely to be priced around Rs 40,000 (600 $).

Amazon Germany appears to have leaked the official price of the OnePlus 6 just a few days before its launch.

According to the Germany Amazon listing, the OnePlus 6 will be available in 64GB and 128GB storage variants. The OnePlus 6, according to the Amazon, will be sold for about 519 Euros (Rs 41000 approx.) for the 64 GB model and 569 Euros (Rs 45000) for 128GB storage variant.

OnePlus 6 Notch Design :

The OnePlus 6 will have a notch as approved by Oneplus CEO. This should not be a surprise considering the number of Android devices that were showcased at Mobile World Congress 2018 sported a notch. Also, the OPPO R15 with a notch was recently launched, which is expected to be the OnePlus 6 with flagship specifications.  As a Oneplus fan, I felt like one plus is copying Apple.

One plus 6 Specifications:

According to a leak from Android Central, earlier this month Oneplus 6 is rumoured to have 19:9 Display. Likewise, the oppo R15 has a notch that was inspired by iPhone X’s look, OnePlus 6 will have a notch which can be hidden according to the user preference like how Huawei P20 did.

The OnePlus 6 is expected to have a 6.28-inch Optim AMOLED display with a 2280 x 1080 px resolution. This weird resolution is a result of the notch. OnePlus is expected to retain the Optic AMOLED display as well as the resolution from the OnePlus 5T.

One plus 6 will be powered by the Snapdragon 845 chipset. Coupled with that will either be 6GB or 8GB of RAM and 64GB or 128GB of onboard storage, respectively. As has been the history, the storage will not be expandable via a microSD card.

One plus 6 might sport Wireless charging :

The company always claimed that their dashcharge technology is much better than wireless charging. But however, going by the Industry trend one plus 6 might incorporate the Qi standard wireless charging. if not IP68, Oneplus 6 might come with an IP67 rating, at the least.

One plus 6 Camera Specifications:

The OnePlus 6 will have a dual-camera setup on the back and a single camera on the front. While the leaked image of the OnePlus 6 revealed a vertically placed setup, the OPPO R15 has a setup similar to the OnePlus 5T. Apart from that, the 6 is expected to retain the OnePlus 5T camera implementation. Going by the industry trend, one plus 6 could have a few “AI capabilities,” Following the trend. I don’t think no other company is investing huge on AI other than Huawei.

One plus 6 with Heart Rate Sensor:

Latest News is Oneplus 6 might sport an Heart rate sensor Like how samsung did with there latest Flagship S9 plus.

OnePlus 6 Face Unlock :

The OnePlus 5T was launched a couple of months after the iPhone X, which had Face ID. Similarly, OnePlus launched the 5T with a new Face Unlock feature. Although it is nowhere near how secure Face ID is, it is much faster and more convenient. With a possible notch on the display, it is possible that the company will introduce a much more secure version of Face Unlock with the OnePlus 6.

Oneplus 6 in Avenger Avatar:

Avenger fans in India Oneplus is releasing avenger themed phone Excite. OnePlus said in a statement obtained by Android Central, noting that the deal “marks a step towards strengthening our association with Disney India.”

Launch Event                                                                 BuyNow

As a fan of one plus 6, I suggest you skip this model if it sports notch lets all wait for one plus 6 plus or oneplus 7. What do you think guys comment below & Follow FoxBuff on all Social Mediums.

Congress last week asked Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, about the information of collecting users data and how Facebook tracks you even when you’re logged out.

Controversy about Cambridge Analytica, a digital Agency which had run Trump presidential campaign that improperly obtained data of about 87 million Facebook users without their permission thus bought Facebook’s data collection practices under scrutiny. The data which was collected by Cambridge University researcher named Aleksandr Kogan through a personality quiz app legitimately, he then broke Facebook’s terms of service by passing on the data to Cambridge Analytica.

Those who had already watched Zuckerberg’s grilling session he had explained a few of the basics to the congressmen that day. Facebook went into more depth about how it tracks you even when you’re logged out and also when you are around the Internet browsing consuming content.

David Baser, a Facebook product management director, wrote in a blog post that

“When you visit a site or app that uses and accepts our services, we receive information we need even if you’re logged out or don’t have a Facebook account,”.

Let’s go technical Digital marketers out there already know this but for the common audience Here are the developer tools from Facebook that allow Facebook to track you:

Based on the users’ IP address/ operating system they use, Facebook then displays the Like button on an individual’s browser based on the language user had chosen. While IP addresses help from which country people are using an app, browser and operating system This information gives developers data about the platforms people use and help them to create better versions.

Cookies help with identifying unique visitors and recognize which visitors are Facebook users to provide aggregated demographic information such as age and gender.
Cookies and device identifiers help Facebook determine if the user is logged in, which makes it reportedly easier to share content.

Common Social plugins, like the “Share” or “Like” buttons, which you can find on websites, like shopping pages and news articles etc.

Facebook Login, which lets you log into outside apps using your Facebook account so you don’t have to create a new password or username mostly we do this because we hate all the routine stuff creating filling up the details.

Facebook Analytics Facebook version of Google analytics, which gives website and Apps owners information how and when people are interacting with their site.

Facebook ads and other measurement tools, including Facebook Pixel i.e pixel code which is added to the website who owns. This tool measures how effective ads are running and how they are performing, by giving Facebook information on when Someone visited certain sites where Pixel code is implemented and took specific actions, like buying something Tracking users journey.

Myself koduri Pranav a Digital Marketing Expert I can say you that not only facebook everyone out there like Google, Twitter, Pinterest etc track you for Advertisement purposes and making their platform more feasible to use.

Yes, This new MIT’s headset reads the ‘words in your head’.  Voice computing which is taking new trends into everything and implemented by everyone.  It feels awkward when we try to speak with any AI voice computing device in public.

Same weirdo thing happened when Mobile Bluetooth came out to market. everyone who used to use them the other ones who don’t know they are using Bluetooth felt like why the F**k they are talking themselves.  So this is the reason we’ve been seeing the technology being used in the home, where people feel free to talk to their machines.

This AlterEgo is a nonverbal device that gets the job done in a similar way i.e Like other Voice AI machines, but without the talking. Check out the video tutorial of AlterEgo below.

AlterEgo is a jaw-mounted — device that’s capable of reading neuromuscular signals through built-in electrodes promises telepathy with Alexa. A team at MIT has been working on AlterEgo and that the hardware design should look more apt comfortable to use. The hardware, as MIT puts it, is capable of reading “words in your head.” crazy isn’t it.

MIT grad student Arnav Kapur said in the news that “The motivation for building AlterEgo was to build an intelligence-augmentation device(IA Device), Our main idea was that Could we have a computing platform that works more internal, that completely erases human and machine capabilities in turn some ways feels like an internal thing helping out humans”.

15 facts about ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis) Disease Stephen Hawking Lived with for Over 50 Years

Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a disease that causes the degeneration of motor neurons, eventually leading to a loss of movement and patients being unable to breathe without assistance.

Our Inspiration Stephen Hawking Died, Scientist of the decade Stephen Hawking was one of the 10 percent who lived more than 10 years after he was Diagnosed at the age of 21, suffering from ALS(Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis). Stephen Hawking lived 55 years with ALS. Though he was supported by his family bunch of scientists and crazy Technology he used to live on.

Stephen William Hawking CH CBE FRS FRSA was a British theoretical physicist, cosmologist, author and Director of Research at the Centre for Theoretical Cosmology within the University of Cambridge.

These are the 15 facts about ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis) Disease Stephen Hawking Lived with for Over 50 Years

  • ALS affects slightly more men than women.
  • ALS can strike at any time, but it most commonly strikes between the ages of 55 and 75.
  • It’s estimated that between 14,000 and 15,000 Americans have ALS.
  • Military veterans are 1 1/2 to two times more likely to develop ALS than people who haven’t served in the military.
  • Ninety percent of ALS cases are considered “sporadic,” meaning there is no clear reason for the disease’s development.
  • Five to 10 percent of ALS cases are familial and due to mutated genes.
  • The first symptoms of the disease often appear in either a hand or a leg and are referred to as “limb-onset ALS.”
  • ALS does not affect mental ability It hits Physically look at amazing scientist Stephen Hawking.
  • ALS patients burn calories faster than non-sufferers and as a result are often underweight.
  • There isn’t one test to diagnose ALS. Diagnosis is done through a variety of observations and scans.
  • There is no known cause of ALS but researchers think that it is a combination of genetics and environmental triggers.
  • Researchers are studying exposure to toxic substances, diet, and physical trauma as potential causes of the disease.
  • There is no cure or effective therapy for ALS. Patients will undergo palliative therapy to make them as comfortable as possible.
  • For others, the first symptoms are speech or swallowing difficulties, called “bulbar-onset ALS.”
  • The spread of symptoms differ from patient to patient but eventually, all patients will lose the ability to move and breathe on their own Like Stephen Hawking.

Remember the ALS Ice bucket challenge:

Do you Remember the ALS Ice bucket challenge which went viral every top politician, Celebrities, Influencers tried out this challenge? But why did they do nobody knows.

via GIPHY

The reason is more than the fun factor, the ALS Ice bucket challenge was a campaign to raise awareness and funds for a rare neurological disease, Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis.

Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) also Known as Lou Gehrig’s:

ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease, named after famous US basketball player Lou Gehrig’s who was afflicted with ALS, in 1939.As motor neuron disease, it gets progressively worse, hampering movements such as walking, chewing, hand gestures, etc. Eventually, even breathing gets affected.

How Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) works:

ALS makes It hard for communication between neurons in the brain, the spinal cord and the muscle that is to be moved. Motor neurons start to die, and the muscles, receiving no inputs weaken and waste away. Most diagnosed with ALS, die within three to five years when their lungs give up.

Treatment & Cure for ALS :

There is none to halt or slow down ALS, nor is there a cure. The best healthcare providers can do is to treat symptomatically. There is also no way to predict who will get ALS, as it develops sporadically with causes unknown. Though speech and language pathologist can help ALS patient and also the drug Rilutek can offer patients a few extra months as the drug has been shown to slightly reduce motor neuron damage.

It is hard to digest that Stephen Hawking died he will be my personal inspiration and for many of you, He suffered ALS lived on with the disease shared his knowledge though he was not well for a long time great isn’t.

Yes, You Heard it Right You can Now Experience Mumbai Slum Homestay as a tourist. In India you got many options to try out because every state every place has unique people traditions and food habits. literally, You feel that every state in India feels like a separate country. When you cross from one state to another food habits dressing culture everything changes. Experience Mumbai Slum Home Stay as a tourist.

India Has a lot of tourist places because of it’s oldest history, India has The valleys of Kashmir, the mountains of Himachal, the food in Rajasthan or the party vibe of Goa or maybe soaking up some sun on a beach in Andaman or south India amazing breakfast’s & Temples, India has all of it.

We all know that Mumbai has Asia’s 2nd largest Slum Dharavi after Pakistan’s orangi Town. But the twist in the tale Here in Mumbai’s Slums 60% of people are refugees from Bangladesh, Myanmar, Tibet & Nepal. 40 % remaining People are from other places of Maharashtra and India. They might be from any place India respect’s them.

How it all Started like to host there home to tourist’s to stay.

All of this began when Ravi Sansi, a young man who used to sell on the streets of Mumbai one day met a tourist from Singapore. She asked him to help her to show some tourist places which are scenic. He first took her to Girgaon Chowpatty and also invited her to stay with his family on Golibar Road in Khar (East). In an interview to TOI, he explained how her experience was.

“She slept in the same bed as my bhabhi, learned to cook and would wash her clothes sitting with my mother in the doorway. She cried when she left because she was so happy to have met me.” Life is crazy isn’t we hit up sentiments and make true friends easily in short amount of time.

The idea of making tourists stay in slums was planted by David Bijl from the Netherlands who worked with Ravi in a non-profit organisation(NGO). Later Ravi got the idea of starting his own homestay which will allow tourists to experience the ‘basti’ life and In turn, he can earn money.

The idea is unique and simple. “The guests will stay in the family’s newly acquired loft that sports a new mattress, a flat-screen TV, and an air-conditioner, but use the same toilet facility as the rest of the slum. We would be very happy if they eat with us, but we can also take them to nearby food stores or restaurants”, Sansi explains.
