Artificial Intelligence has come a long way from being just a science fiction dream to a reality which we see today. The world is evolving at a rapid pace and with it the technologies are being upgraded and are getting better too. Today we have more power in our pocket than we had in our homes in the 1990s. Not long ago, holograms and smartphones were just science concepts but now the smartphones can check our health as the technology is evolving. Some of the application areas of artificial intelligence are health, education, entertainment, services, security and many other domains but these fields are specifically the most to benefit from this technology.
People are beginning to explore the benefits of AI and how it can ease their life. Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning go hand-in-hand so that machines can learn about critical programs to gain knowledge and respond to demands to perform similar human-like tasks. Artificial Intelligence enables a machine to self-learn from experiences and human intervention which finally provides us with human-like capabilities for interaction and problem-solving potential. From chess-playing computers to self-driving cars, AI is present in many areas which we not might have thought of. AI makes use of Deep Learning and Natural Language Processing (NLP) to accomplish tasks like these which drives automation and intelligent processes.
Various Technologies will Lead in Coming Days
Recently the most progressed fields are Augmented Reality, Virtual Reality, Voice Assistance and Artificial Intelligence, and people are beginning to wonder what the future might be like with this kind of technology. To explain these technologies in 2 lines I would like to start with Augmented Reality, which combines virtual objects with the real world which gives an interactive experience by computer-generated perceptual information. Another one is the Virtual Reality which is a computer-generated simulation of a 3D image which can be interacted in a real or physical way through an electronic device which has sensors. Last but not the least is the Voice assistance which has been with us for many years now but the enhancements in AI has provided more room for improvement in voice-assisted technology.
There are many examples of AR which are being used by individuals and industries like;
IKEA uses the application Place, which they have recently released so that customers can
check how different types of furniture look in their home which simplifies purchase decisions for the customers. Niantic’s Pokemon Go, an Augmented Reality based smartphone game, enables the player to catch Pokemon on real-time locations. Automaker Company Ford uses Microsoft’s HOLO LENS to design cars and experiment with new designs. Other automakers, Audi and Cadillac use Virtual Reality to enhance the customer experience so that the buyers can see the car model and the features. So in short what I mean to say is that nowadays industry giants have started implementing technologies like AR and VR in their fields and are experiencing a much better way to run their business.
Examples for Voice Search technology are Apple’s Siri, Samsung’s S Voice, Microsoft’s
Cortona and Google Assistant, Amazon Alexa. A lot of development has been made in the field of AI in the last few years which has motivated developers and companies to create more products and services around it.
These are some of the points which suggest why Artificial Intelligence is important:
1. Repetitive Learning though data
AI carries out continuous computerized tasks which are high volume and automated. Through Deep Learning, AI seeks to get in-depth information about a problem or a query raised by an individual. Human enquiry is still important to ask the right question so that the learning is in the right direction.
2. Adding Intelligence
Products which are already in use are improved through the integration of AI capabilities. Different types of components like automation, learning bots and conversational platform can be merged together along with huge amounts of data to improve the product or the service through AI.
3. Adapting to newer algorithms
AI continuously learns newer algorithms through structured data available to it where a new skill is acquired in order to provide newer experiences. An algorithm is important to solve a certain case or a problem. When new models are introduced, AI automatically learns through training and added data.
4. Deeper Insights
More and more analysis of data leads to a deeper understanding of the database available to AI and through neural networks many hidden layers can be uncovered. With the highest compute power, various models can be trained to go deep into data to get more relevant out of it.
5. Incredible Accuracy
The most appropriate example to define this point will be Google search and Google photos which gets better as we continuously use them. Through deep neural networks, AI achieves higher accuracy to dive deep into data and select patterns of the users which can be helpful in providing similar results.
6. Proper utilization of data
The algorithms are self-learning and the data is used appropriately and excessively by AI which helps bring out the best results out of the big data. Since the data is important now than ever before, it creates a competitive advantage because many newer techniques or solutions and be uncovered through proper analysis.
Artificial Intelligence can benefit the lives of each and every individual because it has the potential to offer a technology which can be implemented in day-to-day life and would make their lives easier. There are multiple areas which can benefit from AI and this will result in the reduction of human efforts, costs, and labor. Industries and Enterprises are already using AI in their business processes and have started seeing the difference through high efficiency, lower operating costs, and faster decision making.
Android P, arguably one of the best updates android has ever seen. Why am I saying this? Follow me on this and you’ll believe what I said too. Previously Android came up with the Lollipop back in 2014 and swept all the updates with its improved animations and quite exciting features against which the next or previous updates of Google, failed to compete.
Now, with the announcement of Android P, Android has a new update that can be called as best ever. The HMD global even announced that more than 86,000 users have logged in to test the new software and get it updated in the mobile phones.
Using the AI technology in multiple features, Android P has made sure that the audience would be comfortable in using their phones like never before. AI records all your activities and also your actions on notifications and internal app pages and then show them to you so you can save your time in finding them. Let’s brief every important feature that Android has come up with.
The Navigation keys:
This would be the first one on any list as this is the major change of this Android P update. Android now has saved you from those three custom screen keys and has put a small tablet shaped key. Though this isn’t the best upgrade still now, but as the users are using it they, users are taking it as a much better-looking version. You don’t have a back button or multi-app display buttons to this. If you want to navigate through the apps, just tap on that single icon and the application’s pop-up. Now swipe from left to right to navigate between the used apps. This isn’t the most convenient option but wait until your body muscles get used to it and then you’ll not feel much difficult.
Dashboard and App timer:
Now there’s a feature that would actually benefit you and still is loved by all the elders around you. If you lose track of how long you’ve been using your phone. If you wonder, you spend too much of time over certain apps, then this is for you. The dashboard lets you figure out how long you’ve been spending time over your phone. You can also come to know how long you spend on particular apps and put restrictions on it. This will not only curb your phone usage but will also give you an idea, how you’ve been wasting time all day long.
DND Mode and Wind Down:
The Do Not Disturb mode, which the iPhone is famous for has been embedded in a way better way in Android P. Though Android already had a DND mode earlier as well but wasn’t as efficient as this is. If ever you want to stop yourself from being disturbed by other, you can just turn your phone facing down. This will not only cease the calls from ringing but will also stop all the other notifications. This is called the Shush mode. If you’re on a family dinner and you keep receiving messages from the one your parents which you don’t like, you can just turn it upside down. That’s it, that’ll do the job for you.
Indoor navigation with Wi-Fi RTT:
This is one huge update that every Google maps fan has been craving for so long. How would you like it if you can not only guide yourself to your friend’s location but also know where exactly he/she is? If they’re in a mall, you are even guided with respect to the multiple storeys it has. The person’s position would be accurately determined and you can accurately guide yourself.

This is one of that Artificial Intelligence featured program, that helps you in determining a particular page in a certain application. For example, if you’ve been using Uber to book a cab to your location. Then this feature will give out the address under the application that you usually search for- when you search for it on Google. Now, you can see the location and the fare price will pop up right there. This works for multiple apps and it’s internal features. This isn’t a great update but will surely go a long way in making your usability easy.
This isn’t a major update either, but still, the one that the Android users have been waiting for. This feature has already been used in the IOS 11 and has proved to be effective. The same feature has been embedded in this version of Android and we couldn’t be happier. There are better customizable options in the Android’s version when compared to IOS’s

The auto-rotate has seen an update too. Now you won’t be annoyed by the frequent auto rotate. Or turning on and off the auto rotate option all the time. All you need to do is rotate the screen and tap on the portrait or landscape option. This will be displayed on the corner of your phone screen. After the rotation, just tap on it and your job is done.
Default HTTPS for apps:
HTTPS is the secure version of HTTP where the communication with the server to the browser is encrypted. Most of the applications are using HTTPS these days but for the few, there were a few that don’t. For that, Android P has made sure that all the application it uses has HTTPS. We’ve all learned the importance of having that S at the end of HTTP if you haven’t then do give it a read here.
Adaptive Battery and Brightness:
This ability to adapt for both the battery and brightness is what we’ve seen earlier. But trust me when I say that this isn’t like before anymore. This is new and quite different from the previous versions in terms of efficiency. Here, the artificial intelligence, that Google has been concentrating upon, comes into play. From your past usage and experiences, the AI accordingly records the data. This data is later utilized to adjust the brightness according to the time. When it comes to battery, it learns to prioritize battery power by observing the apps and services you use the most. It thereby helps you in using your battery in the most resourceful way.
Smart replies and notification customization:

This Smart reply feature has been available previously but has definitely changed for the good. You can now more conveniently use the smart reply option to reply in a more efficient way. It shows the suggested replies according to the person and also displays the images they send on the notifications itself.
So that’s all from our end, you want a further information on other tiny updates, then go through this.
Android P Beta 3 version has been released just a while ago. If you want to read about what’s new or how to install this on your phone then, visit here.
Update: Android has released the Beta 4(Developer Preview 5)
Android has already released the new Beta 4 version of its P version and it came to market on August 6. Although the Beta 3 version was supposed to be the last one, Android took it a step further and released the next version for its audience.
How do I get the Developer Preview 5 (Beta 4) update?
The newly released beta update is basically designed for the Google Pixel devices and not only confined it self to one device. It is also available for users that have already enrolled for the Android Beta programme. If you’re a pixel user, you can download the update here. The users will also be able to download through OTA(Over The Air) update here and factory images here and if you are a Nokia user you can download from here. If even you would like to get the update, you can sign up for the Android Beta Program to receive the OTA update on your phone.
What devices will this be available in the future?
Android Pie was available for the some of the devices which includes Pixel, Essential, One Plus 6, Essential and Nokia 7. These devices were the first who got updated with Android Pie. After this HMD global on October 10 declared that Android 9 will made available in the Nokia 6.1 plus via Nokia phone beta labs. The Nokia Phone beta labs are designed in a way to give the tech freaks an early adaptation of the new technologies and improve the user experience on the digital platform.
What’s new in Developer Preview 5 (Beta 4)?
The new version of this has come up with an intention to offer new features on board. Before, the developers were more concerned about the ability of Android P about how it will perform without causing any disruptions. Hence, in this case, Android P made sure that all its features work without any errors and with full efficiency.
There were certain parts of the OS that were giving a hard time to the users. The settings tab was taking a while for loading. Though the wait isn’t really long, it still is noticeable. This was not really going well with the users. Hence keeping these things in mind, the new beta version allowed the users to get rid of all those undesirable effects they had to see earlier.
The other update the users are able to see on this new update, is that the battery consumption was 3% better than before. Though this isn’t a substantial change, still, it has improved the user experience and adding some juice to our batteries is always appreciable.
Let’s see what has changed from Developer preview 4 to Developer preview 5.
- Voice icon has been removed from the Google search bar in the app drawer.
- Google Pay still wouldn’t allow the in-store payments on the device.
- The auto-rotate icon has been changed now. A simpler one has taken its place.
I know the kind of updates they have come up with but it has been only 2 months and Android P is appreciated by the users. So the key take away is that Android P has come up with an additional update after 3 weeks of its release. The update is mostly concentrating upon the irregularities or errors of the previous version. With this update, Android P is was installed in all the major smart phone brands. It is also expected to be updated regularly in third quarter of the year. People are enjoying it a lot. You also go and enroll yourself for the new Android P. We’ll Update you everytime something ne comes up.
But they certainly have come up with the way to speed up the device. I’am using this OS in my device and my device has become fast and is giving a very good user experience.
If you want to know about the changes and trends in web development in recent years, then you’re at the right place. The web development has evolved drastically throughout the years. After undergoing continuous changes, web development has reached a stage where it knows how to attract a customer in the right way. With timely changes, new methods are to be acquired in order to stay with the flow. So, without any further ado, let’s get to the point and figure out all those techniques, that are going to be a trend this year and most probably, the next year as well.
Accelerated Mobile Pages (AMP):
If you don’t already know what an AMP is, then you need to understand that it is one of those features, which loads a page instantly without any delay. Usually, when you search for something on Google and then open a link, it takes a while to load the web page. But here, you don’t have to wait anymore. The page opens instantly on a mobile device. Apparently, 51% of the internet users use mobile for their jobs. Thus, with the introduction of such features, it’d be easier for the pages to receive huge traffic through phones. This project is still in progress, and might come into limelight any time, pretty soon. Let’s wait for this and see if it does, as it promises.
Progressive Web Applications:
This is yet another major must-have changes in your web development area. If you’d like to make yourself run and come first in this race of millions, then making the lives of the readers easier, would be the best way to go about it. Progressive web applications(PWA) does just that for you. Just the way a computer browser often displays an application-like page, progressive web app enables the users to have a similar experience on mobile phones. It delivers an app-like user experience.
Shadows and 3D view:
The shadow and 3D effects have already been on websites for quite some time, but aren’t being implemented everywhere. The shadow and 3D effects give a real-time impression of the website and make it more comfortable to come to. Though 3D and shadows have been in use for a while, it doesn’t mean that there’s still much room for it to grow. So,keep using different techniques to make it more real than ever.
Integrated animations(Motion UI):
This is one change you might have seen this year or in the previous year. This has been one of the most trendy ways used by a website, to make it feel alive. That’s what animations do to your pages, they makes it all the more fun and interesting to watch. It’s said that animations, as such give employees some relief from their work stress for a while, if they care enough to notice it. A catchy web page, with animations has the viewers’ attention and makes them linger on the website for a while.
This is one thing that many of the website developers need to concentrate on. If yours is a real estate website, then you can paste uep some kind of QR code, through which the viewer, with the help of a VR headset can get an actual picture of what he/she wants to buy. The viewer can get a good view of the whole inside of the building with the actual dimensions. It saves time and money both for the buyer, as well as the seller, and makes it easier for them to make a purchase sitting at home.
These are one of those things that can be very useful and fetch you a lot of customers. On the flip side, these can turn fatal and make you lose all your customers, if misused. That’s the kind of influence a push notification can have on its users. Though this has been on the internet for a while, the users still haven’t been able to make the most of it. One needs to understand the patterns and different behaviours of the users in order to implement this in the best way possible.
Extensions are the one thing that has been on the internet for a while, but haven’t received the hype they deserve. Could be that the developers refused to work enough on them. The extensions are an easy way, almost like a setting, that could help us get the job done in the desired way. The extensions are like guardians, that help you when you need them, but are silent most of the time. When you need something, these appear right there, and give all you want. If you still don’t understand how the extensions work, take the example of Grammarly. Grammarly would not pop up any kind of a notification, but would silently tell you when you have committed an error. Such is the kind of help these extensions can do when you need them.
This is one thing that one needs to concentrate on more. As we’ve discussed earlier, mobile usage has taken a hike and is now more widely used than the desktop internet users. This hike isn’t coming down anytime. So, one needs to concentrate on its mobile version as well, if one needs to stand in the market. Mobiles are handy and easy to use, as compared to opening a system and waiting for it to start. With the growing need for shorter techniques, mobile usage seems to be the easiest way out for such requirements.
Single page websites:
This is a new trend in the field of websites. This is being acclaimed by many experts as the future of website development. A single page, where you can find everything you searched fo, and a navigation tool that takes you to different parts in that particular page, makes it even easier for you to navigate and save yourself the trouble of scrolling down again and again. This, probably, is the kind of website people would love to go to, if their requirement for multiple pages is low – A short and sweet page that has everything that’s needed.
Artificial Intelligence support:
Chatbots are the next big thing in the field of website development. As the time zones are different, there’s no time limit for the queries that the customers come up with. To tackle situation as such, one thing you can do is influx manpower that can communicate with the customers all day and night – anytime they need. This would cost them millions of bucks. To avoid such heavy investments, there’s one thing these websites or industries could do. They can bring the chatbots into action. Artificial intelligence is one thing that’s been acclaimed by everyone and should be implemented in multiple locations to make life easier, at the same time, save time and money.
Flash to HTML5:
This is something almost all the websites have been doing. If you’ve not done it yet, then this is your time to do it without any further delay. Flash is not supported by mobile devices, which leads to a disturbance of about 51% to internet users. That would cost you a lot of traffic. Using flash for HTML5 isn’t the right option after all.
I’m sure there must be multiple other ways in which the websites can be developed, but these are a few of those foolproof methods that are supposed to be implemented, in order to stay rooted in this race of constant upgradation.
Artificial intelligence or AI also known as machine intelligence or MI and this is the reverse of natural intelligence which includes humans and other living beings, as everything fully depends and demonstrated by machine. Which, basically means the area which gives full emphasis on creating the intelligent machines that work very similar to human beings. Some artificial intelligence activities involved in the computer are as below:
- Speech recognition
CLASSIFICATION OF ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE (AI)
Artificial intelligence or AI can be classified in various ways but important are the two ways. Artificial intelligence first classification is either weak AI or strong AI also known as narrow AI which is designed and trained for only a particular task. Personal assistants which are virtual like the Apple iPhone’s Siri are the form of weak AI.
The strong AI is just like the human brain and its cognitive capabilities whenever there is an unfamiliar task given it is capable enough to find the solution.
The work that is associated with artificial intelligence is very technical and needs specialization. However, there are some problems you get while working on computer coding for some important traits which includes:
There are different forms of learning included in artificial intelligence and the simplest form is the trial and error one. For example- a simple program to solve the problems in computer chess game it tries the moves in a random manner until the mate is found. The program usually stores the moves or the position so, that when the next time the computer encounters the position it can declare the result accordingly. The memorizing of the simple items and procedures is called as rote learning which is very easy to carry out on the computer. And the most challenging one is the generalization. Which basically means applying past experience in the new incidents.
This means drawing or summing up the appropriate inference according to the situation. And inferences are basically of two types that are inductive or deductive. For example, if we consider “George who went to the restaurant or to the airport. He is not in the airport so must be in the restaurant” similarly, “similar type of accident was caused previously due to the failure of the instrument, so this accident was caused due to the failure of the instrument”. So, the most important difference between inductive and deductive is that. In deductive the premise truth is being guaranteed by the truth of conclusion whereas in case of inductive the truth of premise is supported by conclusion truth without giving absolute assurance. In science, there is a lot of use of inductive reasoning the models are developed after the collection of tentative data to describe and predict the future behavior. While going to the deductive reasoning is common for mathematical or logical where the elaborate structures which are undeniable are built up with small sets of axioms and rules.
It has considerably gained a lot of success and draws an inference from computer programming, especially the deductive reasoning. Generally, the true reasoning always doesn’t contain the drawing inference, it includes something more than like drawing inference which related and relevant to the solution of the particular task or work. This is one of the difficult tasks that is done in the Artificial Intelligence.
To reach a particular goal or target the systematic search done for it including a certain range of possible action is called as problem-solving which is an important aspect of artificial intelligence. There are two types of problem-solving methods general purpose and special purpose. For every specific tailored problem and gets exploited for any specific feature of the situation and the problems get embedded in it this is called a special purpose method. Whereas in case of general purpose it involves a wide variety of problems. This includes means-end analysis or the step-by-step and reduction of the difference present in the current state and final goal is called the general purpose technique. There are lists of means allows the program to select its action- this majorly includes the words which are for a simple robot that are PICK UP, PUT DOWN, MOVE FORWARD, MOVE BACK, MOVELEFT, MOVERIGHT until the desired goal is reached.
A lot of different problems have been solved by using this artificial intelligence. For examples, sequential moves in a board game, composing different mathematical proofs and manipulating virtual objects in the computer-generated world.
The environment is scanned by different sensory organs, real or artificial and the scene gets into different objects for different spatial objects this is known as perception. The analysis is always complicated and can’t deny with the fact that every object appears different from the different angle of view depends on the direction and illumination intensity in the scene and how the object gets contrast from the surrounding scene.
Nowadays artificial intelligence has become very much advanced and optical sensors can be enabled to identify the individuals, on the open road the motorcycles can drive at a moderate speed and robots can roam easily collecting the soda cans from building to buildings. The first system that implemented the perception and action was named as FREDDY, this robot has a television eye which was moving and pincer hand but the robot was stationary. It was constructed during the year the 1966-73 in Scotland. It was able to identify a variety of objects very easily and could assemble simple artifacts like toys and random heap components.
A system containing signs with a conventional meaning was called as Language. The language is just not confined to the words we write or speak. We have mini-language the traffic signals which delivers the message of having the hazard ahead. These are very distinct languages that the convention of the linguistic language posses and linguistic here means very different from the original one. A productive and successful language can result in unlimited and variety of sentences.
It would be very easy to write a program in human understandable language so that the responses, comments, queries can be easily understood. Although the machine doesn’t understand the language there are certain principles like the commands which are stored allows them to understand or distinguish between human understandable and non-understandable languages. Then evolves a genuine understanding where the computer even getting the commands fails to acknowledge the language. This thing still doesn’t have a permanent solution. And it depends upon a lot of factors, one’s behavior and history etc. can be trained and to take place in linguistic communication and by making it interactive.
