Google's Emoji Scavenger Hunt : A Fun A.I. Based Experiment That You Can Play!
By Mohammad Enayat

Google has made Emoji Scavenger Hunt — a new AI experiment that shows how the company’s Machine learning tools can be used to make fun little games. Yes! a fun AI-powered game that you can play on your phone. In this case, you have to use your phone’s camera to find objects that match emoji within a time limit. Each one you find increases your time.

Emoji Scavenger Hunt is an experiment that leverages the power of neural networks and your phone’s camera to identify the real world versions of the emojis we use every day. It's a browser-based game that uses your phone’s camera and a neural network to try and guess what it’s seeing. This is just one example of how machine learning can be used in fun ways.

Google Duplex : An AI System To Accomplish Real World Tasks Over Phone!
By Sam_crazy

We see that how Microsoft, Amazon and Google are competing with each other, specially in field of AI, making new innovation day by day to dominate the Market. In this process, Google has just planted a new mile stone by announcing one more eye catching AI system called "Google Duplex". A new technology for conducting natural conversations to carry out “real world” tasks over the phone. The technology is directed towards completing specific tasks, such as scheduling certain types of appointments. For such tasks, the system makes the conversational experience as natural as possible, allowing people to speak normally, like they would to another person, without having to adapt to a machine. Let's dig into depper to understand better.

What Is Google Duplex And What Does It Do?

  • In short, The Google Duplex system is capable of carrying out sophisticated conversations and it completes the majority of its tasks fully autonomously, without human involvement. The system has a self-monitoring capability, which allows it to recognize the tasks it cannot complete autonomously (e.g., scheduling an unusually complex appointment).
  • Let's understand this by an example. We all will agree that for some people, the reason for choosing a restaurant or a salon over another is based solely on its ability to book an appointment online. As some of them are "phone-shy". This Google Duplex technology will help the phone-shy avoid having to actually speak to someone to make an appointment.
  • Google Assistant which is now widely used, will play key part in this. So, now users will be able to give a time and date to Google Assistant, who can then make the call and set up an appointment. How awesome is that?

Human-as-a-Source : Where the IoT and Physical Safety Meets
By Solver13
How you all are doing? As I told on the Previous Thread, I am Back with yet another Tech thread today, and today's thread is regarding Human-as-a-Sensor(HaaS) Technology Topic as you know that the security of the Internet Of Things is a constant topic keeping that in focus I am going to share this thread with you all and I hope you will like today's thread too[Tech] Human-as-a-Source : Where the IoT and Physical Safety Meets It's going to be amazing guy's! So Lets Start[Tech] Human-as-a-Source : Where the IoT and Physical Safety Meets

The security of internet is a topic of discussion typically on device's it connects with. However the Internet of Things(IoT) also gets devided with the World of law of enforcement and of public safety as well, and this connection is been growing in recent years.

Though it is not well known to others, the Human-as-a-Senson(HaaS) example is one value to be focused. Dissimilar what we talk regarding Internet Of Things(IoT), Human-as-a-Sensor(HaaS) does not count on automated sensors at all. Instead it is based on people reporting incidents which they face through mobile apps. Law enforcement is enable to group these data in a perticular order to build a fine sense of emergency at our hand, and which ones to respond first.
