AI Program will help Children and kids in learning

An Artificial-Intelligence (AI) program is helping track learning disabilities in children. A new machine learning program with AI will soon help students read and write who are not as gifted as the rest. The ones with disabilities such as attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), autism or dyslexia will soon be able to match the rest of the normal kids.

Some of the expert researchers, from the University of Cambridge, fed a computer algorithm with cognitive testing data, including measures of listening skills, spatial reasoning, problem-solving, vocabulary, and memory.

The New Steps are taken to provide the complete Education for all

Based on the data fed, the algorithm by the AI suggested that the children best fit into four clusters of difficulties. Difficulties were with working memory skills and difficulties with processing sounds in words. The others were the kids who is suffering with broad cognitive difficulties in many areas and children with typical cognitive test results for their age.

The University of Cambridge is into this and would fulfill every child’s dream to obtain Education Based on the data fed, the algorithm by the AI suggested that the children best fit into four clusters of difficulties. Difficulties were with working memory skills and difficulties with processing sounds in words.

The others were children who is suffering high with broad cognitive difficulties in many areas and children with typical cognitive test results for their age.

The wish to provide an equal opportunity for Every Child

Difficulties with short-term memory span which is working memory and interpretation of information have been linked with struggling in math and with tasks such as following lists. Problems which relate to phonological skills, which is processing the sounds in words, has been linked to struggling with reading.

“Our research and study is the first which works on machine learning to a broad spectrum of hundreds of struggling learners,” Astle added.

The study, which has also published in the journal ‘Developmental Science,’ recruited 550 children who were struggling at the later stage of school. Much of the previous research on learning difficulties has most of the time focused on children who had already been given a particular diagnosis, which also includes as ADHD, autism or dyslexia.

Comparing the knowledge among all of the Children

By including children with all difficulties with respect of diagnosis, this study helped better capture the range of difficulties within, and overlap between, the diagnostic categories. “These are interesting, and an early-stage finding which begin to investigate how we can apply new latest innovative technologies, which includes the IoT and machine learning, to better understand brain function,” the researchers noted

WATCH: Pixel 3XL First Look leaked before official Google launch event!

The best single-camera flagship is soon going to arrive with an upgraded version, from Google. But recently, the official Pixel 3XL phone has been leaked, in Hong Kong, with the full-fledged design. If you are one of those customers who doesn’t like spoilers or leaks, then you can very well ignore this article.

WATCH: Pixel 3XL First Look leaked before the official Google launch event!

For those who don’t know yet, Google is going to launch Pixel 3 and Pixel 3XL later this week, certainly, in an official event.

Well, leaving these things behind, coming onto the leaked official Pixel 3XL phone. The phone’s very first unit has been revealed in Hong Kong, which you can watch in the video. A retailer in Hong Kong is allegedly selling the official unit of Pixel 3XL and Engadget, a YouTube channel got its hands on it.

The video belongs to the channel.

It shows the overall look and design and camera specs of the phone. Still, going by the camera improvements, then there are actually none. Because Google seems to be confident about their single-rear camera setup which has ruled the cameras among flagship smartphones, for two years (barring some great rival exceptions). Rest of the phone you can directly see in the video itself.

According to the strong and near-correct predictions, Pixel 3 and Pixel 3XL will be coming with the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC, and an upgraded protection of IP68 water and dust resistance.

The Pixel 3XL, in particular, is expected to come with a 6.3inch display with a resolution of 1440x2960p. And going by the above video’s details then the phone is having a 3,732mAh durable battery-it will last you a complete day, without any doubt.

Briefly talking about the camera then many rumors are hinting towards a ‘Top Shot’ feature in the new Pixel 3XL phone’s camera. What it does is ‘taking the perfect shot every time’, no matter how you take a snap! For the record, it will be having again, a 12.2MP single rear camera as per the leaked unit.

In the box, you will get Type-C earbuds, a headphone jack adapter, a Type-C cable, and 18W power adapter. This information is in accordance with the video by Engadget channel.

There are a few things now that Google can hide about the new Pixel phones but let’s see what happens in the official event this week when the phones will be launched by the Android maker.

When Apple meant ‘Steve Jobs’: Remembering the man who ‘thought different’

steve jobs

The very first Apple Keynote, on June 29th 2007, was a revolutionizing event which changed everything forever-the way we used to look at the technology. That single event 11 years ago, made us change our opinions towards the handheld devices and we ‘embraced’ the technology in a way that is inexplicable nowadays.

The man who was responsible for that revolution, is not anymore among us, but his presence is felt by that one historical event, 11 years ago! It was when the first iPhone was introduced to us.

But it’s not just about iPhone, or Macbook, or iPad, iTunes, iPod or anything else that Apple introduced in a progression of time. It was about the man himself, who thought different! And his name was Steve Paul Jobs.

The entire world went in shock and mourning, the moment Jobs’ death became viral. It was 7 years ago, same day, but a dark one which was to be followed by an irreplaceable void-it was on October 5th 2011.

Of course, no individual is perfect by any means; nor was Jobs himself. The only thing which made him stand out from his contemporaries, was his focus. According to him, one should always focus and follow one goal at a time, even if it means refusing 100 other great ideas.

Throughout his tenure at Apple, after the big comeback of course (1997), he made it important at Apple that only priorities be taken into consideration to prevent a chaotic situation. It was his vision when the first iPod came into existence to enable every person on this planet to really enjoy music in an unimaginable manner. It was his vision when the biggest and by far the greatest ever device, in iPhone, was originated. Jobs wanted a device that could perform every task whether it was creating documents, taking photos, talking over calls, or availing the multimedia features.

It was his vision when the first tablet was born in reality, bringing the idea of sci-fi films in the actual world. He nearly brought fiction to reality.

Still he was beyond all these inventions and technological marvels. He was a person who never wanted to stop bettering himself. He always kept himself occupied for working on new goals and sticking up to them till they were achieved.

In his many great speeches given to budding, young minds, he always used to emphasis on improvising oneself. He believed that an individual one must think of only his or her ambitions and objectives in life. A person should avoid what others think or have opinion about him. One must never make him/herself bothered because of others. As Jobs himself said once, “Don’t waste your life on others.”

A decade ago, there were also days, when taking Apple’s name directly meant Steve Jobs-in true sense, both were synonymous to each other. Even today, the true admirers of Apple Inc. know what the company would have been had the ‘man in the machine’-as he was called-been still alive. It was highly unfortunate that he died so early but the void which is still visible, after his departure, is impossible to fill, ever, even in the coming centuries.

As a gesture of nostalgia, there’s a clip of Steve Jobs, below, of that moment 11 years ago, when he first unveiled the very iPhone, aka the first smartphone.

Xiaomi’s Mi Mix 3 arriving on October 15: Price, Features & Specifications

Xiaomi’s new flagship model, Mi Mix 3, the successor to last year’s Mi Mix 2, is being talked about since July this year but now some authentic leaks have somewhat confirmed (not officially by the company itself though) that the phone may be launched this October itself. A leaked poster teasing the Mi Mix 3 has surfaced on Weibo.

The poster which you can see above, tells about the Xiaomi event this October 15, taking place at the Nanjing Olympics Sports Centre, in China. Earlier too, it was speculated that the device was going to be launched last month, on September 15, which couldn’t happen eventually.

Xiaomi President Lin Bin had also previously confirmed a launch event in October and now the new leaks imply that this launch event may be regarding the Mi Mix 3 only.

As per the rumors, the phone will also have a camera slider, just like this year’s early revolutionary phone, Oppo’s Find X. Although, Find X had a motorized slider, the Mi Mix 3 will be having a manual slider instead. The display may be a Samsung’s QHD+ AMOLED panel, with COP packaging technology. The performance will be fastened by the latest Snapdragon 845 chipset and for selfies, there may be a 20MP front sensor.

When it comes to pricing, it’s still not known about what will be the exact details, but again, the predictions say that the phone will be coming in four variants. The 6GB/64GB model may be priced for about $510 (Rs. 36,300), 6GB/128GB model for $555 (Rs. 39,500), and 8GB/128GB model for $600 (Rs. 42,700). Apart from these variants, there will also be an 8GB/256GB model which may be priced at around $645 (45,900).
