iPhone 8 to Ditch Home Button for ‘Function Area’, Cost Over $1,000: KGI Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo

KGI analyst Ming Chi Kuo in a new note to his clients has predicted a few more things about the iPhone 8. In his note, Kuo reiterates that the iPhone 8 will ditch the home button for a full-screen design. This additional real estate will used to have a function area towards the bottom of the display that will bring virtual ‘always-on’ buttons to the iPhone.

iPhone 8 to Ditch Home Button for 'Function Area', Cost Over $1,000: KGI Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo

AppleInsider got hold of this note, in which Kuo explains in detail that the extra real estate at the bottom of the iPhone 8 will be used for system functions with dedicated buttons for each function. There’s not much clarity on what the ‘function area’ will bring, but Kuo suggests that Apple could introduce an always-on display with static system controls. The note suggest that this iPhone 8 static display could also have the capability to switch to active display when watching videos or playing game. However, this is all just speculation at this point.

Furthermore, Kuo states that the iPhone 8 will sport a 5.8-inch OLED screen, but will sport the form factor of the 4.7-inch iPhone 7. This is possible because the top and bottom bezels will now be gone, giving more real estate space to the iPhone 8.

Kuo also reiterates that iPhone 8 will ditch the dedicated Touch ID sensor, and Kuo believes that the iPhone 8 ‘will incorporate new bio-recognition assets to take over device security and Apple Pay authentication duties.’ This is in line with previous reports that claim Apple will introduce a new 3D sensing technology, which will be embedded in the display and be capable of reading fingerprints directly. A patent was also published about the same recently, further cementing the rumours that the iPhone 8 will introduce this feature. Even though a dedicated Touch ID sensor will disappear, the new and improved tech will retain the Touch ID branding.

Reiterating previous claims, says that the OLED variants of the iPhone 8 will be priced north of $1,000 because of 50 to 60 percent rise in production cost. The LCD variants will be priced cheaper.

How Face Recognition Technology Will Impact Marketing

Technology and marketing have historically always crossed over; ever since advancements within printing made the mass production of flyers and posters possible, to modern day social media’s role in shaping inbound marketing. Now, facial recognition technology is the next big thing looking to transform the way we market.

The idea of a robot being able to decipher your emotions from studying your face, even to the point where it can (with a significant deal of accuracy) determine whether you’re faking a smile or not, sounds like science fiction. But facial recognition technology has developed to the point where it is also emotion-reading technology, and is so effective that leading institutes and companies investing millions of dollars into it. Apple recently bought the facial recognition software Emotient, and Facebook just acquired the technology FacioMetrics.

Image result for How Face Recognition Technology Will Impact Marketing

The technology is programmed to recognize different facial expression and categories them as emotions such as joy, anger, disgust or sadness. You might think you could simply disguise your true feelings by adopting a poker face which fools the technology, but this is harder than you might think for a psychologically and biologically fascinating reason; micro-expressions. A relatively new finding; micro-expressions are known as the tiny, fleeting movement in muscles that one hardly notices but nonetheless can not control when being confronted with an emotion-inducing scenario.

In other words, whilst you might be able to fool other people into thinking you aren’t shocked in response to some surprising news, the emotion-reading technology would be able to detect minor movements in your face, even those that last less than a second, which reveal your true feelings. Thanks to the psychologists who study these micro-expressions and are discovering which emotions they correspond with, the technology has been programmed to understand the meaning behind minor and discreet facial reflexes.

Of course, this has huge implications to a number of industries, including therapy, law enforcement, politics and recruitment. But how does if affect marketing? Think about all the times you have been asked to fill in a survey, or prompted to ‘like’ and ‘share’ online material that you enjoy. Think about all the times you have been shown an autoplay commercial that is totally irrelevant to your interests, or been hassled by a salesperson who clearly isn’t winning you over. Inbound marketing is all about directing the right kind of content and prompts toward the right kind of user base – people who would actually benefit from, or simply enjoy, the product or service being advertised. Emotion reading technology can help marketers determine what kind of marketing works, and with which audience.

Whilst inbound marketing has traditionally relied solely on the tracking of consumer behaviour online in the form of search histories, Facebook likes, retweets and cookies, facial recognition could now soon be equally valuable in determining the right kind of advertisement, and advertising style, for individual people. Customer service and sales pitches will be transformed when they become conducted by artificial intelligence that can more accurately adjust its offers and promotions based on reading your emotions.

Perhaps marketers are overestimating the usefulness and implications of facial recognition algorithm in its current form, but there’s a lot of money going into rapidly improving the technology. It’s safe to say that we’ll be seeing this kind of software put to use in an increasing number of ways, particularly within marketing, for many industries over the next couple of decades.

 

Xiaomi Mi In-Ear Headphones Pro HD With Improved Sound Quality Launched

Xiaomi Mi In-Ear Headphones Pro HD With Improved Sound Quality LaunchedAfter launching the Mi In-Ear Headphones Pro in India earlier this year, the Chinese company has launched the Mi In-Ear Headphones Pro HD in the US market. The accessory is available on the company’s online store, and is priced at $39.99 (roughly Rs. 2,800).

The Xiaomi Mi In-Ear Headphones Pro HD come with dual-dynamic and balance armature drivers. Xiaomi claims that the dual-dynamic driver “keeps the bass and mid tones mellow, and is made with graphene material that pumps out sounds with fuller and richer details”. It adds that the balanced armature driver “retains the rich details of the high notes for the main melody, so you get to experience tri-band equalisation effect.”

“To achieve a balance in the bass, mid, and high audio ranges, we included dual dynamic and balanced drivers in our all-new Mi In-Ear Headphones Pro HD. The larger dynamic driver is responsible for the lower audio ranges, whereas the smaller dynamic driver takes care of the higher audio ranges,” Xiaomi explains on the product page.

There’s an inbuilt natural sound equaliser and a stretchable TPE matte wiring for more durability and less tangling. The mid-range frequencies are also improved on these headphones.

The headphones sport a 45-degree tilted in-ear buds for better grip and a metal three-button remote. The Xiaomi Mi In-Ear Headphones Pro JD come with built-in microphone for voice calling, and is lightweight at 17 grams. They come with a sensitivity rating of 98dB, and impedance of 32 Ohms, and a frequency response range of 20-40000Hz.

The accessory will be available in Silver colour only, and will be bundled with four pairs of earbuds of different sizes (XS, S, M, and L). Xiaomi also roped in Grammy award winner Luca Bignari for a scientific acoustic tuning for the Mi In-Ear Headphones Pro HD.

Google Pixel Allegedly Hacked in Under a Minute at PwnFest

Google Pixel Allegedly Hacked in Under a Minute at PwnFestAt the PwnFest hacking competition, a group of white hat hackers from Qihoo 360 managed to hack the sought after Google Pixel in less than a minute. They managed the task using a undisclosed zero-day vulnerability, raking in $120,000 (roughly Rs. 81 lakhs) in cash.

The white hat hackers used the vulnerability to gain remote access to the Pixel smartphone. The vulnerability was used to install unwarranted code on the Google device, and then the exploit was used to open Google Play and Chrome browser (mobile version). On opening Chrome, instead of the homepage, a message that read “Pwned by 360 Alpha Team” was displayed on screen.

By gaining remote access to the Pixel phone, hackers exposed all user data – including phone contacts, messages, emails, photos, videos and even card details.
Apart from this remote access, the Qihoo 360 team also managed to crack Adobe Flash in a matter of seconds, by using a combination of exploits. The Register reports that Flash was breached in four seconds flat, earning them cash prize of $120,000 (roughly Rs. 81 lakhs) more. The company even demonstrated Microsoft Edge vulnerabilities on Windows 10. All in all, the team earned $520,000 (roughly Rs. 351 Lakhs) as prize money.

At the event, many other teams also showcased how they could breach many aspects of phones and PCs – be it browsing data, phone contacts, card details and more. Chinese hackers Pangu Team managed to breach the Safari browser running on macOS Sierra in a matter of 20 seconds. This feat earned them a $80,000 (roughly Rs. 54 Lakhs) cash prize.

App downloads VS App Retention: Everything you need to know

When we open an Android or Apple iStore, we get to see many apps are on the list are famous and used by many potential users as well.

We all subject and review the success of the app based on the number of positive feedback and ratings. We fail to see the insight and deep research of the application.

What is more important in the app store is that number of downloads and n=how many people like the app. Based on the suggestions of the users, the play store ranks them accordingly.

However, as a developer, there are many other things the developer needs to look after rather than the number of downloads.

Image result for App downloads VS App Retention

Building the app and uploading for users is just a start. Even if the app hits a million downloads on the market, the application should inspire the users and promote them to use it more than juts once. It will affect the app services more, and it will also help the app to turn things around.

App Downloads

When a website has a visitor, who looks for the content, then leave and never come back again on the site. That does not help their site to increase the number of visitors.

When we have mentioned App downloads, an app does get enough attention because of the features and gig you are providing for the app. The features and offers users might like, and they start using it.

Currently, there are many apps which have come to limelight because of the opportunity provided by the play store, and many have successfully made to the spotlight such as Prisma App. The photo filter app has over million downloads in the first week of the app release.

App Retention

App retention is also called the number of active users on the app. According to the survey conducted by a major app.

The app has more than a million users on the Play Store and the active members after the first use is less than 50% by the end of the week, to be exact after seven days of million downloads.

Retention is the most crucial part of the App development, and I think it is safe to say most of the experts in the field would agree with my statement. Retention is most important to judge the value of the app and how valuable it can get in coming future. The retention gives you an exact metric on how many have downloaded the app and only used it once. The parameters are made so that you can understand the user engagement and inspire the downloaded users to use it more than just once. The metrics also assist the developers in adding necessary options to make things more interesting the users.

App downloads VS App Retention: Android App Promotion

The principal of the points gathered during the feedbacks is to show and give what the users need. Irrelevant options should be avoided as it is against the retention. The remarkable factor of the retention is that it allows opening up a new funnel of income and helps the app to generate revenue without causing any extra hindrance to the users.

The design should be very simple to understand and use because why most of the users are using the smartphone so that they can avoid their PC. The time on smartphones consumes more than Desktop; the Small screen is blessed with the focus of the users are more on what you have to offer.

Conclusion

App downloads are merely an opportunity to convert those visitors into regular active users.

 

Scientists Urge World to Stop Killer Robots at Davos

Scientists Urge World to Stop Killer Robots at Davos

The world must act quickly to avert a future in which autonomous robots with artificial intelligence roam the battlefields killing humans, scientists and arms experts warned at an elite gathering in the Swiss Alps.

Rules must be agreed to prevent the development of such weapons, they said at a January 19-23 meeting of billionaires, scientists and political leaders in the snow-covered ski resort of Davos.

Angela Kane, the German UN High Representative for Disarmament Affairs from 2012-2015, said the world had been slow to take pre-emptive measures to protect humanity from the lethal technology.

“It may be too late,” she told a debate in Davos.

“There are many countries and many representatives in the international community that really do not understand what is involved. This development is something that is limited to a certain number of advanced countries,” Kane said.

The deployment of autonomous weapons would represent a dangerous new era in warfare, scientists said.

“We are not talking about drones, where a human pilot is controlling the drone,” said Stuart Russell, professor of computer science at University of California, Berkeley.

“We are talking about autonomous weapons, which means that there is no one behind it. AI: artificial intelligence weapons,” he told a forum in Davos. “Very precisely, weapons that can locate and attack targets without human intervention.”

Robot chaos on battlefield
Russell said he did not foresee a day in which robots fight the wars for humans and at the end of the day one side says: “OK you won, so you can have all our women.”

But some 1,000 science and technology chiefs including British physicist Stephen Hawking, said in an open letter last July that the development of weapons with a degree of autonomous decision-making capacity could be feasible within years, not decades.

They called for a ban on offensive autonomous weapons that are beyond meaningful human control, warning that the world risked sliding into an artificial intelligence arms race and raising alarm over the risks of such weapons falling into the hands of violent extremists.

“The question is can these machines follow the rules of war?” Russell said.

‘Beyond comprehension’
How, for an example, could an autonomous weapon differentiate between civilians, soldiers, resistance fighters and rebels? How could it know that it should not kill a pilot who has ejected from a plane and is parachuting to the ground?

“I am against robots for ethical reasons but I do not believe ethical arguments will win the day. I believe strategic arguments will win the day,” Russell said.

The United States had renounced biological weapons because of the risk that one day they could deployed by “almost anybody”, he said. “I hope this will happen with robots.”

Alan Winfield, professor of electronic engineering at the University of the West of England, warned that removing humans from battlefield decision-making would have grave consequences.

“It means that humans are deprived from moral responsibility,” Winfield said.

Moreover, the reaction of the robots may be hard to predict, he said: “When you put a robot in a chaotic environment, it behaves chaotically.”

Roger Carr, chairman of the British aerospace and defence group BAE, agreed.

“If you remove ethics and judgement and morality from human endeavour whether it is in peace or war, you will take humanity to another level which is beyond our comprehension,” Carr warned.

“You equally cannot put something into the field that, if it malfunctions, can be very destructive with no control mechanism from a human. That is why the umbilical link, man to machine, is not only to decide when to deploy the weapon but it is also the ability to stop the process. Both are equally important.”

Commercial Drone Sales Expected To Increase By 84% In 2016

commercial drones

According to a recent report by Juniper Research, commercial drone sales are expected to rise by some 84% in 2016.

In 2015 commercial drone sales were around $261 million, this is expected to rise to $481 million in 2016.

Agriculture is expected to be the main sector where commercial drone sales will see the most significant increase.

The research argued that the strongest growth would occur within the agricultural sector, which Juniper expects to account for 48% of all commercial drone sales this year. Here, UAVs (Unmanned Aerial Vehicles) help save time and costs over other methods, such as walking fields on foot and using planes for fly-over filming. Furthermore, the ease of use of a UAV created for the sector allows for more regular crop surveying.

Meanwhile, the research also found that demand for UAVs in the film and television sectors is soaring. Drones provide a much cheaper and more flexible alternative to the use of helicopters and other methods to capture footage for the film and TV industry, particularly for action sequences.

Delivery drones are also expected to be another larger sector in the future, although we are a few years away from these being used on a regular basis as a number of companies like Amazon and others are testing these out.

AsteroidOS Open Source Smartwatch Operating System Under Development

AsteroidOS Open Source Smartwatch Operating System

Android Smartwatch owners that are interested in installing a more open source operating system on theirAndroid Wear smartwatch may be interested in a new operating system which is being developed called AsteroidOS.

AsteroidOS has been specifically designed to replace your operating system on a range of different Android Wear smartwatches. AsteroidOS is a free and open-source smartwatch platform based on OpenEmbedded, libhybris and Qt5 and has been Created from the ground up with modular support in mind.

The AsteroidOS is purely community driven and no company is in control, but at the current time only theLG G watch is supported by the AsteroidOS platform. If you are interested in helping the development of the OS the developer community can be contacted via the #asteroid IRC channel. They explain more on the official website.

We believe that when it comes to wearable devices, privacy matters even more than everywhere else. That’s why, for example AsteroidOS will never listen to your conversations. Thanks to an amazing library called “libhybris”, AsteroidOS can re-use already existing Android drivers and be compatible with Android Wear watches.

AsteroidOS carries a full GNU/Linux on your wrist and this complex distribution is maintained using the industry-standard OpenEmbedded project.The AsteroidOS graphic stack and SDK are based on Qt5 and QML, which makes app creation really fast and enjoyable.
