Latest News & Updates
Advancements in computer technology are never only on one front, the technological growth in one aspect of computing is always intertwined with technological growth in another. In this article, we look at some of the recent advancements in computer technology.
5G seems set to take the world by storm; recent studies at Samsung have revealed that 5G promises unforeseen speeds of 7.5Gbps and can genuinely power the future. With technological advancement in fields such as gaming, automation and internet of things, unparalleled high-speed internet was required for the proper functioning of all these. 5G is also potentially touted to be the driving force for fully automated housing, with everything from the lights to the washing machine to be hooked up to a wireless network.
For a considerable period of time, Virtual and augmented reality looked like a dream and something that couldn’t be replicated from science fiction. But since 2016, the growth of AR/VR has been significant. VR has moved away from just gaming and entertainment to other sectors. AR which is slightly different from VR in terms of how computer technology is used, virtual reality is where the user plunges into the artificial world where his interaction is only with the computer or machine. But augmented reality is where the user is assisted by computing senses that enhance the real-world experience of the user. Augmented reality is being talked up to every possible industry, be it gaming, entertainment, medicine or general office functioning. Augmented reality is set to the world by storm, with Virtual reality not too far behind.
CPS or cyber-physical systems are a computing marvel that has taken every industry by storm, most of you would be wondering what exactly CPS does. Well here is the more common name that might be able to jerk your memory. CPS is basically the Internet of Things (IoT), high functioning systems that can manipulate the environment that it is present in due to the presence of hardware and software reinforcement present in physical systems. With every country in the world trying to build cities that are smart in terms of medicine, functioning, manufacturing, air-control and transportation, it is required for physical components of the systems to be able to adapt and manipulate the changing environment to significantly increase the safety, capability and reliability of the system. Internet of Things has taken the world by storm and cannot be achieved without the advancement of computer technologies in every aspect. At present, the output capabilities of IoT is very modest, to say the least, and would take a considerable amount of time before it can be scaled to the masses as essential critical systems for operations and functioning purposes.
Since 2017 there has been massive rage about crypto-currency, and everyone has an opinion on what exactly it is, but most of the answers only end up confusing you. This article will clear the air and give you a general overview of what exactly crypto-currency and about its origin,
Crypto-currency is a form of digital currency that is designed to be a replacement for real-world money. The whole system is wired by cryptography that enables maximum security for all the parties that are involved in the transaction. Not only is cryptography used in the verification process but is also used in the production of new units of crypto-currency. In simple terms, crypto-currency can be looked as data in a database that can only be exchanged if all the underlying conditions are met. But crypto-currency is more than just data since it possesses value that is translatable to real-world money.
People often mistakenly believe that crypto-currency is a new concept, but the concept has been around since the early 90s tech boom. Three key players had emerged during that time, they were Flooz, Beenz and DigiCash; but all of them failed to materialise any form of success. The reason behind the failure of these companies failed because of the resistance to virtual cash at that time along with cases of fraud and financial altercations.
After the failure of these three companies, the concept of digital currency was a taboo topic in the tech and start-up community. This was the case till 2009, when an anonymous user or users banded together under the pseudo name Satoshi Nakamoto launched bitcoin, they claimed that bitcoin was a decentralised peer-to-peer virtual cash system. They made it decentralised so that there wasn’t a need to have servers or an administrative authority to govern the virtual transactions. In a traditional system, an organization or an individual is the point of control who handles the ledger which prevents fraudulent practices from taking place but these leaves private information of the participants in the hand of a single point of authority. In the bitcoin system, blockchain systems were deployed to counter the need for a single controlling system, essentially what that means is a decentralised system has a public ledger that allows all the users to see the transactions of every other user. The only downside is everyone would know how much you have.
So for a bitcoin transaction to occur, the public ledger should contain the unique keys of the sender and the buyer, and for a transaction to be completed, the sender needs to use his private key to confirm the transaction. Most people believe that since the ledger is public knowledge, they can just steal the information of the users but cracking the cryptographic code can only be done by miners who crack the puzzle and confirm the transaction. Once the cryptographic puzzle is cracked, the miner gets a prize and the transaction fees, or in other words, the miner is your faceless cashier doing the backend job.
The utilisation of cryptography helps the users to overcome the need for a central authority or the need for blind trust. The system is designed to break if the nodes of the decentralised network disagree on a single balance, but there are many virtual key-safes in place to prevent such a disaster from happening.
Crypto-currency is a growing and thriving market that in a way levels the playing field and makes transactions more user-friendly. This article is to just give a brief about the whole process and is not an in-depth take on crypto-currency.
The iPhone X which is to be called iPhone 10 is the latest mobile to be released in the iPhone series. And like its predecessors, the iPhone 10 not only contains the best features in the market but is also touted to be the best iPhone ever to have been released. This article explores three key features of the new iPhone 10 that is set to take the world by storm.
The new OLED display is the first of its kind with over 2 million pixels that enhance the overall experience for the user. The screen runs from end to end meaning that moderately sized phone can now give you the same experience that a large phone does. The OLED display is extremely colourful and is one of the more stylish additions to the iPhone series. Most phones amp up the features without cover their basics, the iPhone 10, on the other hand, has designed the display screen keeping the user’s needs in mind.
Facial recognition in phones isn’t something new; this feature is already present in Apple’s key competitor, Samsung. But Apple is adamant that their facial recognition system is far more advanced and have stated that the iPhone 10 utilised 3D-imagery to give that extra bit of security for your phones. If it I true that 3D-imagery is used for their facial recognition systems then apple is giving the iPhone 10 a whole new level of edge over their South Korean Rivals. 3D-imagery is advanced to a degree where professionally made masks cannot fool the system, thus setting your iPhone 10 apart from all other smartphones in the market.
3. Facial Mapping
Although this article already explored the concept of 3D-imagery powered facial recognition systems, the iPhone 10 has the added ability to map facial expressions on to an emoji, which can then be sent to loved ones. This feature will often be overlooked since to the naked eye this just seems like an added benefit of facial recognition. But in reality apple have cracked the facial mapping code, the animoji feature is the first step in making facial mapping part and parcel of the everyday user’s life. The animoji is the perfect blend of hardware and software interconnection to provide a bit of magic to the black and white mobile market. Apple’s animoji will be utilising the TrueDepth components that will be used in facial recognition for this feature, but Apple needs to be appreciated for being able to blend technological advancement with fun.
The iPhone 10 is going to be a huge investment but is touted to be the best smartphone ever produced. If iPhone 10 can overcome the challenges that have crippled the growth of its predecessor, this fun smartphone can rule the markets for not only the near future but also further beyond.
The landscape of crypto-currency is going to change in the foreseeable future due to its ever-growing popularity. Bitcoin and other crypto-currencies are going to face added amount of scrutiny due to the sheer lack of regulations that are in place, those against crypto-currency state that a decentralised system is a safe haven for criminal activities and what not. This claim isn’t entirely fruitless, as bitcoin is notorious for being the base mode of transaction for money launderers, drug dealers and other criminals. Bitcoin has been a rage in the dark web for quite some time but hasn’t faced this level of scrutiny till its expansion on the public stock exchange. Crypto-currency is sure to face greater hurdles, with more and more government and regulatory bodies entering into the picture. With the growth in popularity, crypto-currency might not be the same as what it is right now.
For crypto-currency to grow and become more mainstream, it has to innovate and build an extremely secure algorithm that is also extremely easy for the average consumer to use. The algorithm needs to greatly tighten its safeguards for the average technologically inept customer to be able to use it. Another key factor that needs to be taken into account is that crypto-currency is still looked at as a taboo and that most normal consumer will still prefer physical structures governing their cash. The digital economy is going to stay, but the fear is that it will never reach the same heights as tradition banking structures due to the technological nuances that go into running a decentralised network.
So where does the future lie for crypto-currency, most experts believe that the future lies somewhere between traditional banking structures and decentralised cryptographic virtual exchange units? Some experts even go on to say that for the normal consumer anonymity is as important as a central safeguarding network, but the basic premise of the current structure is that anonymity comes along with the lack of a central safeguarding network. This conundrum doesn’t seem to be an easy hurdle to overcome since different crypto-currency units are boisterous about the need for a blockchain powered decentralised network, but explaining all this to an average technologically inept consumer is easier said than done. The obstacle ahead for crypto-currency structures is how they are going to convince normal consumers who have for decades utilised banks for all their transactions to shift to a virtual anonymous network that publically displays the bank record of every individual.
Mobile phones have become a part of our everyday lives, and most of us don’t tap into the full potential of our phones. Tech companies throughout the world are competing to provide us with the next best thing. This article will look at what those next best things are.
1. Enhancing Small Business
Most people have the common misconception that the mobile phone is for the everyday user, but in reality, more and more apps are being built for the mobile phone interface to improve productivity for small-scale businesses. Some major players in this field are Expensify and Quickbooks; these are essential financial accounting apps that can ease the burden of investment on a high-end financial system in start-ups and small-scale businesses. Mobile phones can be used in the working environment if the potential of it is realised, the notion of using a phone needs to be slowly changed to tap into the full potential of this market.
Augmented reality and virtual reality are taking the world by storm, due to the limitless opportunities that they provide by bringing man and machine much closer than ever before. Virtual reality is being used more in the entertainment aspect of the mobile interface, giving the user unparalleled experience. Augmented reality is being utilised by all the major tech players to make the user’s interaction with his or her environment even better, the level to which AR alters the functionality of the environment at this point is quite minimal, but the future looks bright in terms of equipping the user. The phone utilises the phone’s hardware sensors and camera to increase the overall operational and functional capacity of the mobile phone.
3. Internet of Things
Internet of Things has smitten almost every industry that has seen its potential. Internet of Things utilises the hardware and software capabilities of your smartphone and enhances the physical interactions experienced by the system. Your smartphone can be equipped with limitless possibilities, for example, housing security systems can be greatly improved by adding the ability to live stream doorstep videos on your smartphone, thereby giving you the power over whether you wish to let in the person standing outside the door. This is just one example of what internet of things could be capable of achieving in the years to come.
Advancement in mobile technologies is set to be the agenda for all the big players in the market if they wish to stay competitive. But the one big downside to such innovations can be the increasing costs of smartphones equipped with features that take the mobile phone experience beyond what people use it for these days.
