Artificial intelligence is an increasingly hot topic these days.

We know that artificial intelligent computers will soon be in our lives, or very soon, but for all we know they could already be here. One of the biggest questions is how will artificial intelligence to change the way we think?In this article, the goal is to shed some light on one of the most important areas: the way the human brain processes language.

When you think about it, the language itself is an artificial intelligence.

Even though you and I may not be able to articulate the thoughts in our head, the thoughts are there, and the ability to communicate is a skill we all have. So, it stands to reason that if you give someone an artificial intelligence like a RACI (rousing area interface data network) embedded in a voice recognition software program that captures a person’s voice, and then it can tell you what they’re saying.

Of course the quality of the voice might vary, but the point is this; that artificial intelligence can be used to enhance the quality of human language.

However, the quality of the message is still up to you.

Why Are Electric Cars Still Not Cost Effective?

environment, technology

The latest news on the economy is that electric cars are going to cost more to insure.

The reason is simple; the cost of gas is at an all-time high and it is not expected to decrease any time soon. For this reason, people are now paying more for their cars than they were just a few years ago.

So the question is, “Why are electric cars still not cost effective?”

The answer is quite simple. Gas prices have been skyrocketing for the past few years and they are expected to continue to do so. If you drive an old gas guzzler, you can forget about it because it is about to come to the end of its expected life. But if you drive one of the new electric cars you can count on it to last at least twice as long as the average gas guzzler.

If you can afford to buy an electric car you should seriously consider it. There are a number of reasons why electric cars cost less to insure. The first reason has to do with the value of the car. Most of the insurance companies view an electric car as a value-added asset that will increase in value as the years go by.

This means that they will be worth much more money in the future. This is not the case for the majority of the older vehicles that we have in our roads today. These vehicles have been said to be worth very little and retro grade due to the fact that they have a limited life span and will usually need to be replaced.

Google Bans 150 Dangerous Apps – Can You Get It Done?

technology

The latest news is that Google has announced that it will be banning 150 dangerous apps from being sold through the Play Store.

This comes as a result of Google becoming aware that many apps that were available to consumers on the Play Store were actually infected with spyware, adware, and/or malware. In order to verify that these were not authentic apps, Google performed a “registry scan.” It is important to understand why this is so important: without a working registry, a smart phone, or mobile device is nothing more than a paperweight. When shopping on the web, most sites require an Adobe Flash and/or JavaScript bundle in order to function properly, and without it, your page is nothing more than a black hole.

According to a Google representative, the reason for the latest Google ban 150 dangerous apps are due to a need to make an “ensemble of protection” against spyware, adware, and malware. As such, if you are attempting to download any app on your smartphone, you need to know whether or not it has been scanned by Google. If you have any suspicions about an app, Google states that they will notify the user before it is downloaded. Here’s how…

If you received a notification from google about the latest Google bans 150 dangerous apps, you are one of the first people to receive this message. There are also other ways to receive this message, so if you didn’t receive the original email, you can also try subscribing to your Google Play Group, or Google+ circles. It’s important to note that this was not an error, but an actual change in the way that apps are scanned by Google. It’s also worth noting that it doesn’t affect apps which were downloaded from the Play Store or purchased through a credit card. Additionally, it does not appear to affect third-party applications.

How a Tiny Brain Implant Helps Blind Teacher See Again

biology, technology

A very helpful development in science is the development of a human brain implant that allows a blind person to see again.

What most people don’t know is that this new technology was invented by a group of scientists who were working on a more advanced technology that would allow a person with complete blindness to see objects. It’s amazing that after more than half a century the scientists finally developed a device that will help everyone with some sort of visual impairment experience the same independence and freedom of which they’ve always dreamed. Now, these incredible devices will apparently allow the blind and visually impaired to actually go out and experience the world.

Thanks to a small brain implant that was surgically placed into the back of the patient. This incredible development has changed the lives of thousands of people all over the world, but it’s not just this one person taking advantage of this new technology. Millions of people may benefit from this breakthrough as well.

The brain implant works by sending a series of visual signals to the part of the brain that controls the eye movements. When these signals come along they are interpreted by the part of the brain that helps the person move. Because the implant is so small, the person will have no way to tell if their eyes are not seeing properly or whether they are moving correctly.

What Is a Catalytic Converter?

Catalytic converters are a breakthrough technology that has been in the works for a number of years.

They have had a lot of hype surrounding them over the past couple of years. These devices, when used correctly, can save a company a ton of money on fuel by converting excess CO2 in a typical engine into usable fuel. There have said to be a number of different types of catalytic converters out there, but they are basically used in the same manner. They all operate on the same principles of separating two different chemicals through a process called catalytic electrodialysis.

What is this process?

Basically, an electrical charge is placed on the incoming gases or liquids which will cause them to become water, air, or fuel. These things have different ways of being forced to interact with one another, but ultimately, they will all end up in the same liquid or gas form. What happens here is that the gas or liquid is separated from the other by an electric arc. This separation is what allows these systems to work so effectively. The most common types of these devices are called the MES and the VC or venturi vane catalytic converters.
