WHAT'S TRENDING

Medical scans and imaging refers to the creation of visual representations of the inner body for medical analysis and to find ways to assess the function of tissues and organs.

What’s the need? 

The number of medical images radiologists in emergency rooms analyze on a given day can be extremely overwhelming. Each medical scan taking hundreds if not thousands of pictures taking up large amounts of data that need to be processed. With deep learning and artificial intelligence radiologists are able to sift through data and analyze exams at a much more efficient rate. As a result, a faster and more accurate medical diagnosis can add years to a patient’s life.

Examples of the Possibility of AI with Medical Imaging:

  • Deep Learning Cancer Detection
  • MRI Image Processing
  • Tumor Development Tracking

How do we detect asteroids?

NASA has cataloged 95 percent of all asteroids capable of causing global catastrophe

  • Objects included in this count must be at least 460 feet across
  • Of this 95 percent catalog, none are expected to present a problem for over a century

The process of cataloging smallerspace debris is ongoing, smaller asteroids are still capable of creating significant harm and loss of life on a local level

  • The meteoroidthat hit Chelyabinsk in 2013 was only 60 feet across butinjured over 1200 people anddamaged buildings in a 58-mileradius

Autonomous vehicles have been a significant challenge for engineers since 1950s. Many developments have been made
since then. From cruise control to smart vehicles. This is the timeline of how much efforts have been put over the years. 

Vehicle-to-Vehicle Communication

Vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) communication enables vehicles towirelessly exchange information about their speed, location, and heading. These V2V communication messages have a range of more than 300 meters and can detect dangers obscured by traffic, terrain, or weather. V2V communication extends and enhances currently available crash avoidance systems that use radars and cameras to detect collision
threats.

Technology in Autonomous Vehicles

The three primary autonomous vehicle sensors are camera,radar and lidar.

  • Camera deals in visuals and look for the surroundings for different objects and obstacles.
  • Radar is used for measuring distances and speed between different vehicles and objects.
  • Lidar is used for making a 3D model of surrounding around the car as shown in the visual.

Game Theory

Game theory is a way to mathematically describe strategic reasoning — modeling the strategic interaction between two or more players in a situation containing set rules and outcomes. In game theory, a “game” is any mathematical model that correlates different player strategies with different outcomes. This could be used to find reasoning in competitors in a market, or drivers on a highway or predators in a habitat.  

 

Game Design Platforms/Engines

A game engine is a software that makes building games easier due to its streamlining of the game development process. Before Game Engines, you would have to  build your game from scratch. Having these Game Engines available have made it possible to become a game developer without joining a Gaming Company and form the comfort of your home. For example, you can make your own assets and make them available for purchase. Below are the top two Game Engines that have really become an industry in their own.

What is a web application?

A web application is a client-server computer program or software that runs on a web server and is accessed through a web browser. Examples of web applications that are utilized commonly include web-mail, online banking, and online retail sales.

Benefits

  • No hard drive installations means web apps don’t cause too many space limitations.
  • If there are no browser compatibility issues, web apps are capable of running on multiple platforms.
  • Web apps are accessible anywhere that has a web
  • Since information is stored on remote services, web apps offer high levels of security.
  • Completely flexible and scalable to a business’s growth and demands.

How do web applications work?

  1. An HTTP GET request is created and sent to the Web Server in order to fetch data using the base
  2. The Web Server detects and forwards the dynamic request to the Web Application where the request will
  3. The Web Application processes request and retrieves the required information from the
  4. An HTML page is generated by the Web Application with the data from the Database inside the placeholders of an HTML template.
  5. The generated HTML is returned by the Web Application through the Web Server along with an HTTP status
  6. The returned HTML is processed by the Web Browser and sends requests for static files that are referenced, such as images, CSS and JavaScript.
  7. The static files are loaded by the Web Server from a file system and are returned to the browser

Why is Mobile Important?

It's a great time to be a mobile developer, demand for mobile developers
continues to increase1. At the same time, the overall number of mobile de-
velopers contiunues to decrease, this equates to higher demand and higher
pay for experienced mobile developers.

Information available:

Where do I start?

Getting started in mobile development can be a tricky task. What lan-
guage do I choose? What is my target platform/platforms? The good news is
there are plenty of toolchains that allow you to develop both web and native apps for both Android and IOS. Cordova allows for writing apps using web
development skills and allows cross platform deployment. Xamarin o ers
the same bene t of cross platfrom, but using .NET and C#. You may also
choose to develop natively for Android using Java/Kotlin in Android Studio
or for IOS using Swift/Objective-C in XCode.

What can mobile do?

It's hard to imagine a competitive large business
existing without mobile solutions in today's market, and as the power of the
mobile platforms increase so will the applications of the technology.
