Facebook is Buying Technology – That Can Almost Read Your Mind

Technology
The social network acquires startup company CTRL-labs, which has developed a solution for controlling computers with the brain. The deal is said to be in the multi-billion class. For four years, CTRL labs have been working on developing a wristband that will use brain signals to control computers. When you want to touch the hand, for example, to move or click the mouse on the computer, neurons from the spine are sent out to the hand. The idea is for the bracelet to capture the signals on the road and translate them into instructions for a computer. “This is what our interactions for us and ours can one day look like. It is changing the way we connect, ”Andrew Bosworth, responsible for Facebook's virtual and augmented reality efforts, writes in a comment. The new acquisition wil

We do not believe that we can trust the market or that our competitors make it so, says Andrew Bosworth, Facebook's hardware manager, to technology site The Information. Facebook has a product suite called Portal, which mainly consists of video call screens and has built-in digital assistants. But with "the next generation," Bosworth is probably talking about the company's commitment to virtual and augmented reality. Facebook already own...

The Decade When Social Media Took Over

Technology
We entered the 2010s with a tough phone and maybe Facebook and come out with a pocket-sized supercomputer and a variety of accounts to maintain. "We live with social media rather than using them." In the early 2010s, social media was something that was actively and delineated. You took a picture, edited it and posted.

This is How Fast The Electric Cars Batteries Age

This is How Fast The Electric Cars Batteries Age

Technology
Geotab has collected data from electric cars worldwide. On average, their batteries lost 2.3 percent of their capacity a year. Here are the factors that shorten the life span. The telematics company Geotab offers, among other things, its services to vehicle fleets, and now they have collected the company's statistics on how the electric cars' batteries degenerate over time. The data, which together covers 1.8 million days, comes from 6,300 electric cars around the world. It shows that the batteries on average lose 2.3 percent of their capacity per year. This means that an electric car with a range of 241 kilometers after five years has lost about 27 kilometers of that capacity. However, according to Geotab, the annual loss means that most batteries will survive the expected life of t...

Why You Should Get a Female Chat Bot

Why You Should Get a Female Chat Bot

Technology
Using a chatbot is becoming an increasingly common way for companies to interact with their customers. Instead of customers having to browse through webpages with questions and answers, they can talk to a chatbot, such as Autodesk's Virtual Agent or Domino's pizza order bot Dom, who can answer simple questions or perform easier tasks. Getting help from a chatbot instead of waiting in a telephone queue to talk to a person can be more effective for the customer. It can also be an opportunity for the customer service to be able to take care of the customers who have more complex issues instead. In general, chatbots of this kind are designed to be friendly, humane and pleasant to deal with. Unlike the two examples I mentioned above, chatbots sometimes get human names and are programmed so w...
