In this year’s International Consumer Electronic Show (CES), held in Las Vegas last January 5 – 8, 2017, an abundance of consumer products stood out and became the TechyV’s favorites. We were impressed by several existing ones and even to the updates to old concepts. Nevertheless, trends are emerging! The IoT (Internet of Things), while still an incoherent principle, was slowly moving to consumer products in significant ways, like with the Lofelt Basslet and Nvidia Spot. However, it is still the erstwhile form factors that captured our hearts this 2017: BlackBerry’s latest Smartphone, the Mercury; ASUS ZenFone AR; and Samsung Chromebook Pro, has completely enthralled us! Without further ado, here is the list of TechyV’s choice in the recent CES 2017: 1. Nvidia Spot: Nvidia is shifting into the smart home with the launch of the Nvidia Spot, a tiny round orb microphone, which is just a size of a golf ball that you can plug in any outlet. According to Nvidia, its echo cancellation and far-field processing can pick up natural speech up to 20-feet away. It is just an add-on to Nvidia’s Shield Android TV, an entertainment streaming device, but it’s pretty smart! The Spot is packed with […]

No one is perfect in the world. Smart and highly efficient human beings also have faults. Computer System is also an another kind of human. Computers are also incorporated with defects and flaws. These shortcomings are Bugs. There are some Programs and Operating information used by a Computer. If there exists a failure in programming or coding, there is a  direct connection with Software Bug. They help in producing wrong and incorrect output. Bugs emerge from mistakes and errors made in programs’ source code or operating system. Bugs are not healthy for Computer. They act like junk food for them. So, it was necessary to look at the status and condition of the device, and therefore, to counterfeit the attacks of bugs, Debugging is done. The biggest issue of concern is that people don’t believe that there is a bug in their system. Hence, there are a number of stages of Debugging. Debugging is a multistep process that elaborates identifying an issue, isolating the source of the issue, and then either correcting the issue or using one’s mind for solving the problem.The final touch of Debugging Process is given by testing the correction and being sure that the method was […]

Thunderbolt ThunderBolt is an interface which is used to connect various external devices onto the system. It was majorly developed with an idea to connect devices and to transfer data and media with speed as fast as the light. This technology initially surfaced at Intel Labs but over time, collaborated with Apple. The makers wanted to create an extremely fast input/output technology that can be universally compatible with any peripheral device. It first made its appearance in Mac computers. How does it work? A Thunderbolt is a simple combination of PCI Express and a display port which combinedly carries data over long distances. It multiplexes various individual data lines and transports the signals and demultiplexes to separately send them on the other side of the device. Why is this technology a hit? The reason why this technology is a hit among others is that it is universally compatible with all existing devices follows a dual protocol and also has highly accurate time synchronization. Also, devices connected using ThunderBolt can be daisy chained. Daisy chaining is a technique with more than one devices connected all together in a linear fashion such that the data transfer can between indirectly connected systems through […]

Humans are connected with computer systems in many ways. But is it possible to connect them emotionally? The answer is yes! EmoSPARK does this for you. EmoSPARK:A small cube shaped virtual friend that responds to human emotions according to their state of mind and makes the user happy. This artificially intelligent console is an emotionally intelligent machine that uses Face recognition and Language analysis to understand human’s emotions and respond according to them. INVENTION:Creating an emotionally intelligent machine is an idea since ages. The invention of robots is somewhat close to this.These robots resemble humans with two legs, two arms and a body. EmoSPARK is an outcome of such inventions with different approach (in appearance). It is a cube shaped console that fits in a palm.Invented by Patrick Levy-Rosenthal in 2007 at London, United Kingdom. HARDWARE: CONSOLE is another term for screen or a display unit used to monitor. The EmoSPARK is a console that displays or monitors according to the emotional state of the user. 90mm * 90mm * 90mm are its dimensions. It consists of a 20MHzmicrochip called EPU (Emotional Processing Unit). It allows the system to experience one of the eight emotions (surprise, anger, disgust, fear, trust, […]

Full-Stack Developer It means to be able to create and develop both the front-end and back-end interfaces. As the name suggests, “stack” which means a well-organized set. In this case, it refers to a set of skills required to develop both the interfaces FRONT END DEVELOPMENT For front-end, one needs to be comfortable with making a web-page, apps, make the structure, do the designing, add the dynamic effect and make it responsive. Front-end trinity HTML CSS JavaScript Well, now is the time to brief a little about the skills for aspiring front-end developers. HTML– It is the basic language in which you can write a code and make a web-page. It describes the elements of a web page. CSS- Cascading style sheets. They make the web page beautiful by the help of images, text font, colors, etc. JavaScript- It makes the web page interactive. JavaScript Frameworks- Create easier web application like SPA(Single Page Application). Example- Ember, Backbone, AngularJS. Version Control- It makes you manage the error once made by letting you observe like a third party and undoing it. CSS Frameworks- This makes the development easier. Example- Bootstrap. Web Performance– Optimization of the website helps as that will lead to […]

We all know Snapchat- The app that has been our favorite for years now. Snapchat drastically changed the way we socialize: Instead of uploading photos and videos one-by-one on social media(which used to be a dreaded time taking task), snapchat allows the users to directly add the moments in the form of pictures and videos in their snapstories- which can be viewed by all the friends and relatives at one place! Snapchat also allows the users to save these snaps into ‘memories’ which can be accessed anytime by the users and can be shared, edited and can again be added to the snapstory. The camera app will still be known as Snapchat, but the company needs a new identity since now, it’s not what it once used to be. So, with this new product (Snapchat spectacles) hitting the markets, they need a new identity which describes the company better. According to CEO Evan Spiegel, “Now that we are developing other products, like Spectacles, we need a name that goes beyond just one product — but doesn’t lose the familiarity and fun of our team and brand.”In September this year, Snapchat changed itself to be Snap Inc. In the later part […]

A dynamic software model relying on sensor data called as “Digital Twin” refers to the digital support of external property that is useful for multiple purposes. The data from Sensors uses the Digital twins installed on external objects to represent their adjacent real-time status, working place or condition. It helps us to predict future and also to understand the present and the past operation. It is a very powerful tool which creates an impact on all business sectors. The 3D model creates a virtual companion for the physical object, which is one of the examples of Digital Twin. It checks the status of the external object and projects an exact copy of the real one. The Digital Twin concept is also called as “device shadow” as it copies the device’s state in present time. The digital twin must be up-to-date and clear in bringing forth the copy of the physical object’s states and properties, along with shape, gesture, angle, motion and status. A Digital Twin is an artificial delegation of an object. It is useful in various applications like simulation, product design, monitoring, servicing, and optimization. It also paves way to the development of industrial Internet of Things (IoT). The […]

Deep Neural Nets: Advanced Machine Learning          Machine learning is a part of computer science that makes the computer capable, to learn without actual programming. The machine learning technique emerged from the applications of computational learning theory and pattern recognition that comes from artificial intelligence. It deals with the study of algorithm construction that makes data predictions or decisions, over constructing a model from sample inputs. Machine learning engages with computing tasks where programming and designing explicit algorithms is unimaginable; some of the example applications consist of spam filtering, computer vision, optical character recognition (OCR), detection of network intruders and search engines. Machine learning relates to the computational statistics, which also targets in prediction-making with the help of computers. Machine learning fuses with mining of data, where the latest subfield targets more on exploratory data analysis known as unsupervised learning. Deep Learning: Deep learning goes down the stream of machine learning based on a set of algorithms that tries to design data having a high-level abstraction. There are two types of neurons: input signal that receives and output signal that sends. As soon as the input signal receives from the internal layer, it passes on an altered version. Between the input […]
