Facebook begins its work to implement optical imaging

Image
Facebook announced that with a team of 60 engineers, social media giant is working to build brain-computer interface that allows you to type with just your mind without invasive implants. The team plans to implement optical imaging to scan your brain a hundred times per second to detect you speaking quietly in your head and translate it into text. Regina Dugan, the head of Facebook’s R&D division Building 8, shared more details to the members of conference that the aim is to allow people to type at 100 words per minute, 5X faster than typing on a phone, with mind alone. “What if you could type directly from your brain?” Chief of Facebook R&D says. She demonstrated a video of a paralyzed patient at Stanford who can type using mind with an implanted sensor. Chief also explained how Facebook wants to move ahead without the use of surgical implants.

While the work in Building 8 had only begun working on the brain typing project six months ago, it is now collaborating with UC San Fran…

Google to Samurai fake news with Fact Check Label

Image
Google is all set to implement its fact check label to Google News editions globally after introducing the feature in October for the U.S and U.K. The label will further appear in searches in all languages supported by Google. It works like this - When you search for a topic that's answered by a source using the fact check label, Google's results page will add a snippet with three major elements: information about the claim being made, who made the claim, and whether the claim is true, false or anywhere in between. Further it may also appear in a Google News cluster with the term "Fact check" before the headline.

Google alerted that the fact check label won't be visible for every possible conspiracy or crazy news story you can predict. For instance, a search for "the Earth is flat," does not provide any provision for fact check labels at this writing.  Disagreeably it shouldn't as the claim is irrational and doesn't call for any genuine examinatio…

You Tube announces new amendment to its Partner Program

Image
You Tube was a very profitable partner program when it was launched five years ago. This gave an opportunity for all to sign up and use the service, like uploading videos and sharing the videos. This was also a big scope to start making money. In fact, this free platform became a very big success until the identification of some problems. These were misuse of accounts, content and causing reputation issues.

To battle against all odds, You tube has now announced an amendment to its partner program. Effective from now on, creators will be prevented from earning money until they hit 10,000 lifetime views on their channel. 



You tube trusts  that this demarcation will give a better scope to collect enough information on a channel. Further, this feature will not disappoint any new upcoming independent creators to sign up and use the service. “In a few weeks, we’ll also be adding a review process for new creators who apply to be in the YouTube Partner Program. After a creator hits 10k lifetime …
