The Intelligent Web, book review: How today's technology became smart, and ... - ZDNet | Technology-Computing-Telecommunication | Scoop.it

Artificial intelligence has not happened in the way we imagined decades ago — neither 2001's HAL nor Asimov's robots are anywhere near reality. But could the combination of web search, big data, voice recognition and machine learning systems, and algorithms originally developed to do things like place adverts, bring us a useful kind of machine 'intelligence' — even if it's not an artificial consciousness?

Gautam Shroff, Chief Scientist at Tata Consultancy, calls this combination (the common technology threads behind driverless cars and voice recognition, and the way Google can translate a web page and Facebook can recognize your friends in pictures) 'web intelligence' and suggests it has a big future.

Indian-origin engineers create a device for faster wireless technology

Indian-origin engineers create a device for faster wireless technology | Technology-Computing-Telecommunication | Scoop.it

Washington: Using an inexpensive Rs 3,600 inkjet printer, two Indian-origin electrical engineers at the University of Utah have for the first time produced microscopic structures that use light in metals to carry information.

This new technique, which controls electrical conductivity within such micro-structures, could be used to rapidly fabricate superfast components in electronic devices - making wireless technology faster or printing magnetic materials.

A recently discovered technology called plasmonics marries the best aspects of optical and electronic data transfer.

INDIA (CBS News) Engineering students in India have created electronic underwear they claim can protect the wearer from sexual assault.

 

INDIA (CBS News) Engineering students in India have created electronic underwear they claim can protect the wearer from sexual assault.

The lingerie would deliver electric shock waves of 3,800,000 volts to an attacker and features GPS. The garment can also send emergency text messages to the police. 

The unusual prototype was created by three Indian students at SRM University in Chennai, who wanted to combat ongoing violence against women. 

The protective underwear, named Society Harnessing Equipment (SHE), purportedly delivers up to 82 electric shocks to a would-be offender when pressure sensors on the item detect unwanted force, according to The Times of India. "A person trying to molest a girl will get the shock of his life the moment pressure sensors get activated, and the GPS and GSM modules would send an SMS (to the Indian emergency number) as well as to parents of the girl," said one inventor, Manisha Mohan.

Building cities of the future now

Building cities of the future now | Technology-Computing-Telecommunication | Scoop.it
A profile of technologically advanced cities from around the world which offer blueprints for the way we may live in the future.

 

Around the world new cities are being built while those we have lived in for centuries are being upgraded for the future.

It is partly a reaction to over-crowding and pollution and partly because in an ever-connected world it makes increasing sense to hook entire cities up to the network.

A smarter city may mean one that uses data on traffic to ease congestion or one that aims to join up services to provide better information for citizens. For many it is about making cities greener and more efficient.

Technology firms such such as IBM and Cisco see smart cities as a huge business opportunity but, alongside the schemes being touted by technology firms, are more grass root projects which aim to empower citizens and allow them a say in how the city will look.

PC, tablet, phone shipments to hit 2.4B in 2013

PC, tablet, phone shipments to hit 2.4B in 2013 | Technology-Computing-Telecommunication | Scoop.it

NEW YORK (AP) — Research firm Gartner says it expects worldwide PC, tablet and mobile phone shipments to reach 2.4 billion units this year, up 9 percent from 2012.

Gartner Inc. said Thursday that device shipments should continue to grow, hitting more than 2.9 billion in 2017. But the mix of devices is shifting away from PCs.

Gartner expects desktop and notebook PC shipments to continue to decline as people move toward more portable devices like tablets and ‘‘ultramobile’’ electronics that fall somewhere between a laptop and a tablet, such as the MacBook Air.

NASA Selects Astrobotic to Demonstrate Asteroid and Moon Landing Technology | Technology-Computing-Telecommunication | Scoop.it
Antoinette Mousso's insight:

PITTSBURGH, PA – APR 4, 2013 – Last week Astrobotic successfully flew a sensor package designed to guide spacecraft safely to the surface of asteroids, moons, planets, and beyond. The flight occurred on an unmanned helicopter operated by a pilot on the ground. The flights are preparation for demonstration of this capability on a propulsive lander similar to Astrobotic’s Griffin. Astrobotic was selected by NASA for flight opportunities on a propulsive lander which culminate in a fully autonomous landing demonstration with hazard detection, trajectory planning, and closed-loop control.

Incredible Technology: How Fleets of 'Flat Landers' Could Explore Other Planets - Space.com | Technology-Computing-Telecommunication | Scoop.it

Future space missions may send dozens of rug-like robots fluttering down to the surface of alien worlds, taking much of the risk out of planetary exploration.

Researchers are developing flat, blanket-size landers that could be delivered en masse to worlds such as Mars or the Jupiter moon Europa. The approach represents a radical departure from the surface-exploration status quo, which generally launches single-shot, big-ticket landers or rovers that costhundreds of millions of dollars to design and build.

This article is related to government and law because it is talking about our society  and how we can strengthen it. In this article you will find out that the president, Mr. Obama is expecting to strengthen the next generation by putting in $750 million dollars into the school technology education program. He believes that everyone should have a chance at getting a better education in life. Is this a good thing to spend $750 million dollars on instead of spending it on world hunger or protecting our world?

Reed Klunder 's comment, April 24, 2014 5:07 PM
I think this article is a good and a bad thing. Number one it's a good thing that they are planning on expanding our education and making it better for the world. Number two though is that we have a lot of people living in hunger in this world and maybe, that extra money should go to the,

While AnandTech is predominantly a website catering to the US crowd, not everything that gets released ends up in the rest of the world – China and North America are normally locations 1 and 2 on the list of ‘where do we ship our product to’.  I come from the UK, which is somewhere in the middle between a US release and a never release.  For example we do not get Rosewill here, and no matter how much I look at the Vizio Thin + Light as a possible laptop upgrade, I will have to import one (with 20% import tax) or buy it when I am next over there.

Professional IT Resume Writing Guaranteed to get you more interviews and job offers ... or you don't pay ...

 

It would be a grave mistake to think that you can use a standard resume to apply for an IT job. Not only is the format different, but the way your resume will be processed differs from other industries.

Contrary to standard resumes that focus on experience and education, IT resumes should instead put the emphasis on certifications and technical skills. Since most IT recruiters use the ATS tracking system to scan resumes, your resume should also imperatively include the right keywords and jargon. Finally, your resume should demonstrate your project-management skills, whether it's in terms of deadlines, budgets, etc ...
