Developing Augmented Reality (AR) apps for iOS: Key Things to Know

Developing Augmented Reality (AR) apps for iOS: Key Things to Know

Artificial Intelligence, Technology
No other mobile platform has given so much importance to Augmented Reality (AR) technology as the Apple iOS platform. iOS has been at the forefront of AR development, and the outcome such as the ARKit is the natural outcome of the company's continuous focus in turning AR big for the iOS user experience. As a result, AR-based apps continued to deliver fiscal benefits to Apple besides creating a futuristic ecosystem of gadgets and apps.  Naturally, as an aspiring AR developer, if you want to target iOS, there cannot be a better time. While the pervasive and era-defining power of AR apps is too well known, iOS as a platform is all set to allow you to get the best of this platform with its ARKit. So, do you want to create an iOS app with AR technology that instantly starts pouring busin...
Artificial intelligence AI in the Workplace – Complete Guide

Artificial intelligence AI in the Workplace – Complete Guide

Artificial Intelligence, Technology
Artificial intelligence will create more jobs than it erases. This is predicted by the heavy analysis company Gartner in a new report. Gartner states that 2020 will be an important year for artificial intelligence. Then 2.3 million ai-related jobs will be created, at the same time as 1.8 million jobs will disappear. Those who gain the most from development are healthcare, the public sector and the education sector. The prospects for jobs in the manufacturing industry are all the gloomier and the demand for human staff will decrease. This puts the finger on something Gartner addresses in his report: the difference between the areas where artificial intelligence can do the job itself and the areas where it is used as an assistant to humans. Industrial manufacturing is based on a hi...
What is Google Assistant and What Can it Do?

What is Google Assistant and What Can it Do?

Artificial Intelligence, Innovation, Technology
One of the most popular and useful smart features that come now is voice-controlled digital assistants. The big advantage of them is that you can control them with voice commands so that you do not have to pick up the cellphone or sit at the computer. For example, they can play music, answer questions, make lists and schedules, and not least control the devices in your smart home. When it comes to controlling smart home devices, it is most common to use a voice-assisted assistant built into a smart speaker. The most common assistants today are Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant, and Apple Siri. Here we will get to know Google Assistant, see what it can do and how to control its smart home. This is Google Assistant If you have a smartphone with Google services, you may already have encount...
What is Siri and What Can it Do?

What is Siri and What Can it Do?

Artificial Intelligence, Innovation, Technology
Today digital assistants are becoming more commonplace in our computers, phones and smart speakers. With simple voice commands, these assistants can play music and other media, generate information such as news and weather and answer questions, and not least control the devices in our smart homes. This is a simple and clever way to use smart technology around us. We just need to say simple commands like: "Alexa, play some jazz on Spotify," or "Hey Google, turn on the lights in the living room," and the assistant will fix what we ask for. Today, perhaps Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa are the digital assistants most people talk about, but it all started with Apple's Siri and Siri has kept up with the evolution of smart home features. Here we talk about what Siri can do and how to us...
What is VR (Virtual Reality) and How Does it Work?

What is VR (Virtual Reality) and How Does it Work?

Artificial Intelligence, Technology
The abbreviation VR stands for Virtual Reality. A VR headset (or VR glasses as it is also called) is, in short, a type of glasses-like device that you clasp in front of your eyes. Inside the VR glasses is a screen that shows e.g. a digital environment, such as a gaming world. As you move your head, different sensors in the VR headset respond to your movements and then reflect the movements of the digital pretend environment you have in front of your eyes. The whole VR concept is thus simply about creating a virtual reality. 1. Different variants of VR glasses The simplest (and many times the most common) VR headsets actually only consist of a plastic box with two lenses mounted on the inside. On one side of the lenses in this plastic box, place your smartphone (Android or iPhone). The...
How Does Face Recognition Really Work?

How Does Face Recognition Really Work?

Artificial Intelligence, Technology
How can artificial intelligence recognize a face? This is how. Face recognition is a technology that has grown substantially in use in recent decades. Just a few decades ago, face recognition was something that we only saw in sci-fi matrix movies and something a lot of people wouldn't expect would enter the technologies of many devices that are used in our daily lives. In fact, the facial recognition market is expected to grow to $7.7 billion in 2022. The reason why facial recognition will continue to grow so substantially is that it has such a wide spectrum of usage areas and can be applied to so many industries and purposes. If you think about it, facial recognition is a very impressive technology. And with that said, also very advanced. Most people simply use the technology withou...

10 Ways Artificial Intelligence Will Change Your Life

Artificial Intelligence, Innovation
tWe are in the midst of a time that may be one of history's most important. A breakpoint that humanity has rarely seen - what is happening now is truly exceptional. But just as surprising is how quiet it is from politicians and traditional media. Maybe it is based on ignorance, fear or that you simply do not have the answers. We have seen the future utopia in series such as West World or films such as the current Blade Runner. So, what is happening, and how will it affect us? Just everything that can be connected, it will be. We talk about everything from cars to clothes and appliances. Today, more than 4 billion people are connected to more than 15 billion units. By 2025, it is estimated that there will be at least 75 billion connected devices. The phenomenon is described as the ...

Artificial Intelligence, Technology
When your email automatically sorts out your spam, when your computer alerts you to security risks or when you translate a text, it may be Microsoft's artificial intelligence services, AI, which are behind the features. What work areas within AI will we see in the future? Ethics and philosophy are areas of work that will become important in AI. How do you ensure building AI systems that are sustainable and ethical as they gain more control? One of our partners, Tieto, is currently looking for "AI ethics engineers," for example What does it mean that they should be "sustainable" and "ethical"? Since AI systems learn from data from our environment, there is a risk that they will reinforce the injustices that already exist in society. For example, it has been found that some face recognit...
AI and Robots Take Millions of Jobs – but Create Even More

AI and Robots Take Millions of Jobs – but Create Even More

Artificial Intelligence, Technology
Sure, AI, robots and algorithms will take over a lot of jobs that are being run by humans today, but they will create the more. The net is expected to be 58 million by 2022, according to the World Economic Forum. It is usually mentioned that AI and robotization are a threat to the job. The automation means that people are simply exchanged for software and robots. But a major report from the World Economic Fourm provides a much brighter picture of the future labor market - and it shows that new technology creates significantly more jobs than it destroys in the coming five-year period. Because although technologies such as automated software, artificial intelligence and robotics are expected to make 75 million jobs disappear by 2022 - they are also expected to have created 133 million ...
