Hey Siri are you there

first_imgFor years I thought Apple was forging its own path in the smart home, that there was a purpose behind its slow-boil approach to working with smart-home partners and integrating Siri voice control features — that at some point the company’s strategy would make sense.  Sure, to some extent it does make sense. If you’re an Apple loyalist, the pathway is clear: You probably already have Apple Music, you’re likely going to buy a HomePod smart speaker and you’ll look for lights, locks, thermostats and other smart home gadgets that work with Apple HomeKit. You’ll overlook Apple’s other limitations because the platform works well enough.  And who knows what potential innovations await with the hiring of Google alum John Giannandrea, now Apple’s chief of machine learning and AI strategy.But there are some serious, lingering limitations with HomeKit, Siri and Apple’s overall approach to smart home hardware that should have been addressed by now. Alexa and Google Assistant continue to move forward while Apple’s platform lags far behind. Let’s take a look at the current state of the Apple smart home and discuss what we’d like to see from it next year.  Comments Aug 31 • Best smart light bulbs for 2019 (plus switches, light strips, accessories and more) Apple Music Spotify Siri Apple Apple HomeKit Apple Music now works on Amazon Alexa smart speakers Great sound, but it’s trapped in Apple’s world Siri vs. Alexa vs. Google Assistant Smart Home Wireless & Bluetooth Speakers CNET’s Holiday Gift Guide for 2018: The gifts they’ll loveStocking stuffers: The best gifts under $25 Aug 30 • Battling bot vacs: iRobot Roomba S9+ vs Neato Botvac D7 Connected Aug 31 • The best coffee grinders you can buy right now 1:08 Share your voice See All Tags Smart lightbulb tips and trickscenter_img Now playing: Watch this: CNET Smart Home 35 34 Photos Aug 31 • Alexa can tell you if someone breaks into your house • At $349 each, the HomePod smart speaker is pricey. Where’s the more affordable HomePod? Rumors of a “HomePod Mini” have been discussed for months, but we have yet to see it. There’s no Siri-enabled HomeKit smart display, either.  New HomePod features and improvements to Siri  Both stereo pairing and multiroom audio were added to the HomePod in May, a few months after the smart speaker’s initial product launch.  A few other HomePod updates have trickled in, including calling, searching for a song by its lyrics and setting multiple timers. The additions have helped keep Siri and the HomePod somewhat competitive, but Apple’s voice assistant still struggles to keep up with Alexa and Google Assistant. Amazon and Google have made significant progress with natural language, making Alexa and Google Assistant conversational. Use the Google Assistant on the Google Home Hub to cook a meal and it will walk you through the steps, tutorial-style. Amazon smart speakers now offer a “whisper mode” — it sounds kind of creepy, but it means you can use your Alexa speaker during your kid’s nap time. These nuances make Alexa and Google Assistant more appealing and more natural to use in a variety of scenarios. Apple just isn’t there yet.   Enlarge ImageAsk Siri to adjust HomeKit-enabled lights, locks, thermostats and other smart home devices.  Tyler Lizenby/CNET Support for third-party devices Apple has make some strides as far as opening up its platform. Manufacturers no longer need to stick an MFi hardware chip in every HomeKit-enabled device like they used to. Apple has also announced a software developer kit making it easier for developers to partner with Apple on HomeKit projects. At the same time, Apple lags way behind Amazon and Google Assistant when it comes to third-party smart-home partners. It has more than it used to, but it’s nowhere near catching up with Amazon, which reached 50,000 Alexa skills back in September according to Voicebot.AI.  An open platform  I know, I know. Apple and “open platform” don’t necessarily go together, but there are just two things I want to see from Apple that would make a big difference in the smart home: Make an Android version of the Home app Add support for Spotify and other third-party music streaming services to HomePod Apple’s Home app is where you go on your iOS phone or tablet to add and make adjustments to your HomeKit, Siri-enabled smart devices. It’s a decent enough app and Apple added it to MacOS Mojave in 2018, so you can view, manage and control your smart home products straight from your Mac. The HomePod currently only works natively with Apple Music. You can use Airplay 2 to play audio from third parties on the HomePod, but they don’t work seamlessly via Siri. Apple should make the HomePod compatible with Spotify at the very least. Amazon now works with Apple Music, as well as Spotify, Pandora, Amazon Prime Music, Amazon Music Unlimited, iHeartRadio, TuneIn and SiriusXM. apple-homekit-home-app-location-based-lighting-triggerEnlarge ImageA look inside the Apple Home app for iOS and how to automate the lights turning on. Screenshots by Ry Crist/CNET The outlook Given the success of Alexa and Google Assistant, why isn’t Apple doing more with Siri, HomeKit and the HomePod? There are so many different things they could address to stay more competitive. Where’s the HomePod that’s actually affordable? Why isn’t there an Apple smart display? When will Siri be able to answer more questions (and better)? The list goes on and on. We’ll continue to keep an eye on things here, as always, and hope that Giannandrea ushers in a new age for the Apple smart home. Prove us wrong, Apple.Apple declined CNET’s request for comment. reading • Hey Siri, are you there? Siri runs the smart home with these Apple HomeKit gadgets CNET Smart Home Related links More Apple hardware The HomePod is Apple’s only piece of smart home hardware to date, introduced in early 2018. (You can make a case for the Apple TV counting as well since it works with Airplay 2, but it’s more smart-home-adjacent than smart-home-exclusive.) Fortunately, the HomePod is a great speaker, delivering excellent sound quality in a relatively compact package. Pair two HomePods together for stereo sound in the same room — or put them in different rooms to enable multiroom audio (these come via Airplay 2).  It’s a solid device. But Amazon and Google have many more smart speaker options. There’s even a limited selection of third-party devices that work with Alexa and Google Assistant. The Facebook Portal and Portal Plus work with Alexa and so does the Sonos One. Google Assistant is built into the JBL Link View and the Lenovo Smart Display, among others.  last_img read more

Researchers find a countrys wealth correlates with its collective knowledge

first_img(PhysOrg.com) — What causes the large gap between rich and poor countries has been a long-debated question. Previous research has found some correlation between a nation’s economic prosperity and factors such as how the country is governed, the average amount of formal education each individual receives, and the country’s overall competiveness. But now a team of researchers from Harvard and MIT has discovered that a new measure based on a country’s collective knowledge can account for the enormous income differences between the nations of the world better than any other factor. This figure shows the relationship between economic complexity and income per capita for 128 countries after controlling for each country’s natural resource exports. Economic complexity and natural resources explain 73% of the variance in per capita income across countries. Image credit: The Atlas of Economic Complexity But getting poorer countries to begin producing more complex products is not as simple as offering individuals a formal education in which they learn facts and figures – what the authors refer to as “explicit” knowledge. Instead, the most productive knowledge is the “tacit” kind (for example, how to run a business), which is much harder to teach. For this reason, countries tend to expand their production capabilities by moving from the products they already produce to others that require a similar set of embedded knowledge capabilities.After measuring the Economic Complexity Index (ECI) of 128 countries by analyzing their products, the researchers found a strong relationship between ECI and income per capita, at least for countries that have limited natural resource exports. (Countries with, for example, large oil reserves tend to be wealthier than expected, since mining oil reserves depends more on geology than large amounts of knowledge.) For the 75 countries for which natural resources account for less than 10% of exports, the researchers found that economic complexity accounts for 75% of the variance in income per capita. After controlling for natural resource exports, economic complexity and natural resources explain 73% of the variance in per capita income across all countries.Using this data, the researchers generated a ranking of the 128 countries in which Japan had the highest ECI, followed by Germany and Switzerland. The US was 13th.The authors then predicted each country’s future economic growth by comparing each country’s ECI with its level of income (GDP per capita). If a country had a lower level of income than was expected for its level of complexity, the researchers predicted that the country would experience more growth in order to “catch up.” In other countries, the level of income was higher than expected based on their level of complexity, suggesting that these countries would not experience strong future growth. Based on this analysis, the top three countries with the highest expected growth were China, India, and Thailand. The US was 91st. As the researchers explained, complex economies tend to have few remaining opportunities because they already produce many complex products. Meanwhile, countries with an intermediate level of complexity differ largely in their potential for expanding to make more complex products.The researchers hope that this ability to measure a country’s prosperity and predict its future economic growth reveals some key areas that might be addressed and used to accelerate the process of economic development. © 2011 PhysOrg.com Explore further Citation: Researchers find a country’s wealth correlates with its collective knowledge (2011, October 26) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2011-10-country-wealth-knowledge.html “The amount of knowledge that is required to make a product can vary enormously from one good to the next,” the authors write. “Most modern products require more knowledge than what a single person can hold. Nobody in this world, not even the savviest geek nor the most knowledgeable entrepreneur, knows how to make a computer. He has to rely on others who know about battery technology, liquid crystals, microprocessor design, software development, metallurgy, milling, lean manufacturing and human resource management, among many other skills. That is why the average worker in a rich country works in a firm that is much larger and more connected than firms in poor countries.” This network shows the product space of the US. Image credit: The Atlas of Economic Complexity The researchers, led by Ricardo Hausmann, director of Harvard’s Center for International Development and former Minister of Planning for Venezuela, and Cesar A. Hidalgo, assistant professor at MIT’s Media Laboratory and faculty associate at Harvard’s Center for International Development, have published a book called The Atlas of Economic Complexity. Starting today, the book is free to download at http://atlas.media.mit.edu. The authors plan to launch the book during an exclusive event at Harvard’s Center for International Development on October 27th. Attendees will include chief economists of the World Bank and the Asian Development Bank, among other guests.In the book, the authors show how the total amount of knowledge embedded in a country’s economy can be measured by a factor they call “economic complexity.” From this perspective, the more diverse and specialized jobs a country’s citizens have, the greater the country’s ability to produce complex products that few other countries can produce, making the country more prosperous.“The total amount of knowledge embedded in a hunter-gatherer society is not very different from that which is embedded in each one of its members,” the researchers write in their book. “The secret of modern societies is not that each person holds much more productive knowledge than those in a more traditional society. The secret to modernity is that we collectively use large volumes of knowledge, while each one of us holds only a few bits of it. Society functions because its members form webs that allow them to specialize and share their knowledge with others.”The researchers measured a nation’s collective knowledge in terms of the types of products it produces. Countries that produce lots of products that few other countries produce (such as medical imaging devices and jet engines) have more collective knowledge than countries that produce mainly ubiquitous products (such as cotton and soy).

Enjoy morning ragas with the veterans

first_imgMusic is an important part of our life and to incorporate it into our busy schedules, Legends of India is coming up with ‘Morning Ragas’ at Rabindra Bhawan, Mandi House in the national Capital.Sunanda Sharma (Classical Vocal) and Sarod Maestro Pt. Tejendra Narayan Majumdar are the veterans, who will perform this time. The focus will be to help music transcend all barriers of languages, religions, geographies and hierarchies. As it is the purest form of art, classical music, fine-honed over centuries, has the power of healing. ‘Morning Ragas’ exuding positivity and happiness are bound to give that relief for which Delhites have been yearning for, though unconsciously. All one needs to do is to sacrifice the Sunday morning siesta and in turn rejuvenate yourself with the rendition of some mesmerising musical notes of the morning ragas.“By presenting ‘Legends of India’, we are trying to preserve the traditions of Indian Cultural Heritage for the younger generation as I strongly believe that it will help them become better human beings. From organising live performances of renowned artists, to providing a forum for the younger talent, Legends of India is a unique institution bringing together legends and those in the making,” said the organisers.last_img read more

The Monumental Hagia Sophia – Meeting Point of Civilizations

first_imgThe Hagia Sophia — or Ayasofya in Turkish — undeniably occupies the most prominent spot on the vast skyline of Turkey’s largest city, Istanbul, the bridging metropolis between Asia and Europe. Initially, it was a Christian site of worship, erected during the 4th century AD, and what we see today on the site is not the first and original Hagia Sophia structure, but its second, more-than-just-magnificent, replacement.Hagia SophiaBeyond the fact that Hagia Sophia is highly praised for its aesthetics, its part throughout history has also been significant as it relates to religion, politics, and international affairs. In its centuries-long existence, Orthodox Christians and Muslims have both revered the site as their own.The construction of the first Hagia Sophia church came under the orders of the Roman Emperor Constantius II, a year before his death in 361 AD, and in times when the city of Istanbul wore the name of Constantinople. But that early structure which entailed a wooden roof did not last very long.Hagia Sophia (Aya Sofya) indoors captured with fish-eye lens.A fire engulfed the church in 404 AD as chaos spread in the wider area of the city. Some ten years after the fire, and now under Eastern Roman Emperor Theodosius II, Hagia Sophia was rebuilt anew. A beautiful entrance with five naves contained in the interior enhanced the appearance of the second structure.Over the next century, Hagia Sophia came to resemble an important site for the Greek Orthodox church. But in another series of severe public discontent, this time against the famed Emperor Justinian I (he held power from 527 until 565), the building went up in the flames once more.Miniature 38 from the Constantine Manasses Chronicle, 14 century: Construction of Hagia Sophia during the reign of emperor Justinian.The fire caused irrevocable damage to the church, after which Justinian ordered its remnants to be leveled to the ground in 532. Esteemed architects of the era were hired to work on a new cathedral, and within a period of just six years, another Hagia Sophia structure gloriously rose again — the one that is still standing proud to this day.As an astonishing architectural feat, the new edifice of Hagia Sophia boasts a larger, domed roof, reaching up to 180 feet at its highest point. The dome was supported by arches embellished with lavish mosaics depicting winged angels (hexapterygons). Measuring 270 feet in length and 240 feet in width, the new church also contained a half-domed altar and two porches.Hagia Sophia.

The church’s interior was additionally adorned with marble from the Temple of Artemis, whose remains can be seen today in the ancient city of Ephesus, also in Turkey.View upward to domes.

Glass, gemstones, and clay were as well used for the mosaics, all of them revealing biblical scenes.As appealing as it was, Hagia Sophia became the mother church of Greek Orthodox worshipers, the main and official Byzantine religion. Subsequently, the location was used for coronation ceremonies of the empire’s rulers.The Empress Zoe mosaic. Photo by MyrabellaHowever, the basilica was not spared from further calamities. There were periods during the 8th and 9th centuries when an active ban in the empire did not allow the usage of religious pictures. In those instances, a great deal of the original paintings and mosaics secured at the Hagia Sophia were lost — some stolen, others significantly damaged.The Comnenus mosaicDuring the 13th century, the church was briefly seized by the Romans, who inflicted serious damage to the structure before the Byzantines regained control of the site.Everything changed two centuries later, as a new powerhouse emerged in the region — the Ottomans. Under their courageous sultan Mehmet the Conqueror, this “great military leader, he captured Constantinople and conquered the territories in Anatolia and the Balkans that comprised the Ottoman Empire’s heartland for the next four centuries,” writes Britannica.comApse mosaic of the Virgin and ChildSince the Ottomans were religiously oriented towards Islam, the age-old church was quickly converted into a mosque. Mehmet the Conqueror did not necessarily order the destruction of the Hagia Sophia artworks.The Byzantine mosaics were rather plastered over with golden Islamic calligraphy for example, and were later restored by the Fossati brothers, a pair of Swiss-Italian architects who lived and worked during the 19th century.West side of the upper gallery Photo by JoJan CC BY-SA 3.0Gold calligraphy also covered the Hagia Sophia’s main dome, where previously a distinct mosaic likely depicted the image of Jesus Christ. With each new Ottoman emperor something else, emblematic of Islam was added to the Hagia Sophia, included its four minarets. Besides their religious function, the minarets suited the building well, enhancing its strength and stamina in case of earthquakes.Related Video: A trip through Paris in the late 19th century including great old footage of Notre DameA century has passed since the Ottoman Empire ceased to exist, and the Hagia Sophia today operates as a museum.

City council considering reversal of Playa del Carmen parking meter concession

first_imgPlaya del Carmen, Q.R. — Authorities with the Municipality of Solidaridad are considering the reversal of a concession already granted to a company for the installation of parking meters in Playa del Carmen. During the last administration, a concession for the implementation of parking meters in Playa del Carmen was granted to Promotora de Reordenamiento Urbano SA de CV. Solidaridad legal director, René Medrano Ríos says that the technical analyzes carried out by city planning engineers from city council indicates that the installation of parking meters would restrict pedestrian traffic due to the narrowness of the sidewalks. “This administration does not see the issue of parking meters for the mobility of Playa del Carmen as a solution. Evaluations have already been carried out on the subject, and we see that there are areas where parking meters would leave people on wheelchairs unable to move on sidewalks,” adding that it “would limit pedestrians to practically walking in single file,” he said. Former Playa del Carmen mayor Cristina Torres Gómez, reported last summer that the concession involves putting parking meters in the first square of the city between 10th Avenue and Avenida 30, as well as between Avenida Juarez and Constituyentes Avenue.center_img He added that although state congress approved the parking meter concession for a period of 15 years, the Legal Affairs Department is reviewing the granting process of the concession. That area, reiterated Medrano Ríos, “does not have the physical conditions to adapt parking meters.” “We see certain inconsistencies in how the granting of the concession was carried out. Yes, they followed the procedure, but we are reviewing that file in conjunction with the Comptroller General and the Office of the Mayor to see if there are elements that could help us argue from a legal standpoint, why they should not be installed,” he explained.

Facebook is the new Cigarettes says Marc Benioff Salesforce CoCEO

first_imgSo, it was that time of the year when Salesforce enthusiasts, thought-leaders, and pioneers gathered around downtown San-Francisco, to attend the annual Dreamforce conference last week. This year marked the 15th anniversary of the Salesforce annual conference with over 100,000 trailblazers flocking towards the bay area. Throughout these years, technological development in the platform has been the focal point of these conferences, but it was different this time around. A lot has happened between the conference that took place in 2017 and now, especially after Facebook’s Cambridge analytica scandal. First Whatsapp’s co-founder Jan Koum parted ways with Facebook, and now the Instagram co-founders have called it quits. Interestingly, Marc Benioff gave an interview to Bloomberg Technology in which he condemned Facebook as the ‘new cigarettes’. To regulate or not to regulate, that is the question Marc Benioff has been a vocal criticizer of the social media platform. Earlier this year, when innovators and tech leaders gathered at the annual World Economic Forum in the Swiss Alps of Davos, Benioff was one of the panelist discussing on the factors of trust in technology where he made certain interesting points. He took the examples of financial industry a decade ago, where bankers were pretty confident that new products like credit default swaps (CDS), and collateralized debt obligation (CDO) would lead to better economic growth but instead it lead to the biggest financial crisis the world had ever seen. Similarly, he argued that Cigarettes were introduced as this great product for pass time, without any background on its adverse effects on health. Well to the cut the story short, the point that Benioff was trying to make is that these industries were able to take advantage of the addictive behavior of humans because of the clear lack of regulation from the governmental bodies. It was only when the regulators became strict towards these sectors and public reforms came into the picture, these products were brought under control. Similarly, Benioff had called for a regulation of companies, on behalf of the recent news linking the Russian interference in the US presidential elections. He urged the CEO’s of companies to take better responsibilities towards their consumers and their products without explicitly mentioning any name. Let’s take a guess, Mark Zuckerberg anyone? While Benioff made a strong case for regulation, the solution seemed to be more politically driven. Rachel Botsman, Visiting Academic and Lecturer at the Saïd Business School, University of Oxford, argued that regulators are not aware of the new decentralized nature of today’s technological platforms. And ultimately who do we want as the arbiters of truth, should it be Facebook, Regulators, or the Users? and where does the hierarchy of accountability lie in this new structure of platforms? The big question remains. The ethical and humane side of technology Fast forward to Dreamforce 2018, with star-studded guest speakers ranging from the former American Vice President Al Gore to Andre Iguodala of the NBA’s Golden State Warriors. Benioff started with his usual opening keynote but this time with a lot of enthusiasm, or as one might say in a full evangelical mode, the message from the Salesforce CEO was very clear, “We are in the fourth industrial revolution”. Salesforce announced plenty of new products and some key strategic business partnerships with the likes of Apple and AWS now joining Salesforce. While these announcements summarized the technological advancements in the platform, his interview with Bloomberg Technology’s Emily Chang was quite opportunistic. The interview started casually with talks of Benioff sharing his job with the new Co-CEO Keith Block. But soon they discussed the news about Instagram founders Kevin Systrom and Mike Krieger leaving the services of parent company Facebook. While Benioff still maintained his position on regulation, he also discussed about the ethics and humane side of technology. The ethics of technology has come under the spotlight in the recent months with the advancements in Artificial intelligence. In order to solve these questions, Benioff said that Salesforce has taken its first step by setting up the “Office of Ethical and Humane Use of Technology” at the Salesforce Tower in San Francisco. At first, this initiative looks like a solid first step towards solving the problem of technology being used for unethical work. But going back to the argument posed by Rachel Botsman, who actually leverages technology to do unethical work? Is it the Company or the consumer? While Salesforce boasts about its stand on the ethics of building a technological system, Marc Benioff is still silent on the question of Salesforce’s ties with the US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) agency, which follows Donald Trump’s strong anti-immigration agenda. Protesters took a stand against this issue during the Salesforce conference and hundreds of employees from Salesforce wrote an open letter to Benioff to cut ties with the CBP. In return, Benioff responded that its contract with CBP does not deal directly with the separation of children at the Mexican borders. One decision at a time Ethics is largely driven by human behavior, while innovators believe that technological advancements should happen regardless of the outcome, it is the responsibility of every stakeholder in the company, be it a developer, an executive, or a customer to take action against unethical work. And with each mistake, companies and CEOs are provided with opportunities to set things right. Take McKinsey & Company for example. The top management consultancy was under fire due to its scandal in the South African government. But when the firm again came under scrutiny with its ties with the CBP of USA, McKinsey’s new managing partner, Kevin Sneader, came out saying that the firm “will not, under any circumstances, engage in any work, anywhere in the world, that advances or assists policies that are at odds with our values.” It’s now time for companies like Facebook and Salesforce to set the benchmark for the future of technology.

Camp Croc Hunter camping experience to be developed

first_imgSource = Visit Sunshine Coast Camp Croc Hunter camping experience to be developedCrikey! ‘Camp Croc Hunter’ camping experience to be developed at Sunshine Coast’s Australia ZooQueensland Tourism Industry Development Minister, Kate Jones, announced yesterday that it will partner with Australia Zoo to build an $8 million wildlife camping experience, called Camp Croc Hunter, which is expected to lure more than 39,000 visitors to the Sunshine Coast each year after it opens in 2020.The new initiative will provide a wide range of accommodation options, with 108 sites for tents and caravans as well as permanent glamping-style tents and eco cabins.The camping village will be supported by a cafe, reception, entertainment and pool area, amenities blocks, covered cooking areas, school camp facilities and a mountain bike course.Australia Zoo’s Dr Terri Irwin welcomed the grant from the State Government saying that they aimed to have Camp Croc Hunter open in 2020 to commemorate Australia Zoo’s 50th  anniversary.Queensland Tourism Industry Development Minister Kate Jones said funding would come from the Growing Tourism Infrastructure Fund, which had been established to partner with operators to build new attractions that could attract substantial domestic and international visitation to a region.“When the project is fully operational, it’s expected to attract more than 39,000 annual visitors and contribute up to $4.5 million in visitor expenditure a year to the region,” said Minister Jones.Visit Sunshine Coast CEO Simon Latchford said that with the Irwin’s world-wide recognition, the new project would provide a major boost for the Sunshine Coast region.“Australia Zoo is a premium tourism attraction that has helped introduce the Sunshine Coast to audiences around the world, ” he said.“The exciting expansion of camping and glamping accommodation will not only entice more visitors but also convert day-trip visitors to stay longer and spend more.“There is a great appetite for new-style camping accommodation, especially when associated with authentic experiences such as Australia Zoo.“With a backdrop of the Glass House Mountains, and with the beaches of the Sunshine Coast less than 20 minutes away, it enables the Sunshine Coast to offer an incredibly diverse range of experiences for visitors – and this new concept will attract a wide audience from families through to incentive groups.“We really appreciate the support of the Queensland Government for seeding such vital tourism accommodation infrastructure projects, and given that Camp Croc Hunter is scheduled to open in the 50th year of Australia Zoo’s operation, it will be a fitting tribute to the incredible contribution the Irwins have made to the region since launching the Zoo in 1970.”last_img read more
