AI Remind When Others Take a Peek at Mobile

Artificial intelligence or artificial intelligence (AI) makes it easier for humans in any case. Not only on the big things like medical interests and robotics, AI also helps in trivial matters.

One of them is the latest AI innovation being developed by Google. Technology company headquartered in Mountain View, California, USA, it makes AI that can remind when there are others peeking at the phone.

The problem is trivial, but often disturbing when someone is in public areas or public transportation. When you're busy mobile phone, people on the side or behind can be a peek at what is being accessed.
 
In order to minimize the risk of privacy, researchers at Google created a device called an e-screen protector. Innovations that are still in the research stage rely on the front camera to identify people other than users who try to peek at the screen.

Qualcomm Improve Voice Quality of USB Type-C Mobile Phone

The 3.5 audio connector is starting to disappear from the smartphone as some vendors move it and relocate it with audio output via the Type-C USB connector.

Users who want to convert the USB Type-C audio output to 3.5 mm plug can use a dongle converter. The problem is, this dongle usually produces a less good sound output.

The problem is trying to overcome Qualcomm by presenting digital codec to analog converter (DAC) Aqstic ATQ1000. It looks like a dongle converter with a Type-C USB imput and 3.5 mm audio output. It's just that, the quality of DAC in it is higher.

"Aqstic ATQ1000 supports sampling rates of up to 384 KHz, 32 bits, and dynamic range of over 120 decibels," said Qualcomm Senior Product Management Director Ravi Satya when announcing the presence of Aqstic ATQ1000 at the Qualcomm Snapdragon Tech Summit 2017 in Maui, Hawaii, USA United, Thursday (7/12/2017).

Android Go Official Released for Low Specifications Mobile Phone

In the Google I / O 2017 event that was held last May, Google introduced "Android Go" as a configuration of the Android operating system 8.0 Oreo. Android Go is designed for low-specification smartphones at low prices.

Now at the end of 2017, Google officially launches Android Go, coinciding with the finalization of Android Oreo 8.1. The smartphone vendors are able to channel Android Go to low-end devices and Android Oreo 8.1 to their high-end devices.

Smartphone specifications that fit the Android OS Go according to Google is a smartphone that has 1 GB of RAM or less, limited memory, connectivity is not qualified, and CPU improvise. Android Go is expected to answer the needs of the community termed "Next Billion Users", ie those who have not been exposed to cyberspace at all.

Their numbers are quite large, ie half of the 7.6 billion human population in the world, or about 3.8 billion people. One of their challenges to becoming an online society is access to smartphones that are still limited because the price is relatively expensive.

Google wants Android Go to help develop the ecosystem of cheap smartphones but qualified. Thus, the growth of online society will be higher, as compiled KompasTekno, Wednesday (6/12/2017), from ArsTechnica.
