Should blue collar workers be concerned about the incoming wave

The impact of machines and technology on the workforce has always been a rallying cry of pessimist and alarmist but the numbers currently depict a more immediate threat. Estimates from Frey and Osborne suggest that 47% of the workers in the U.S. are at risk of being replaced with machines, 35% in the U.K. and as many as two-thirds of workers in developing countries by 2025. Forrester, a market research company stated that by 2021 6% of all jobs in the U.S. will be done by robots. There are currently around 1.7 million robots already in use in various industries today, granted most of these robots go to places humans can not.

Will Artificial Intelligence Replace Humans

Advances made in Artificial Intelligence has made it possible to create versatile robots that will be able to take over numerous types of manual labor. Robots are now sets of AI-powered systems that can be used to read situations and make decisions, they are intelligent agents. Technologies in this field currently include Siri, Cortana, Google Now and Alexa. These modern AI are fed plethora of images and data in order to train them to recognize trends and patterns.

Spotting similar patterns, they then use this information to make decisions when faced with new data. Blue River manufactured a weeding machine that is able to pick its way through a field and avoid destroying the planted crops. In 2017 Amazon and Google bought two warehouse robotics companies and some robots are already in use at Amazon stacking shelves. Rethink Robotics has just completed a 25,000 dollar robot that is helping breakthrough computer vision. Baxter, the robots name, has been designed to move about and handle a number of tasks. This is a prelude to the threat faced by blue collar workers. Baxter works at loading trucks or hauling hefty packages in the warehouse. The technology race and investment by companies like Google could end the belief that low skilled manual work is too complicated for robots and impossible to automate.

Working Together

It is essential for today’s’ workers to learn how to work together with robots. Ideally, machines should allow humans to leave the tedious work and focus on the rewarding part of their work. The problem with this is the downsizing of the humans’ wages since the machines are accomplishing most of the hard work. The positives are that there is still a lot of work that can only be done by humans and not a machine. Humans can also be creative and this is where they gain the upper hand. A machine can perform the same task numerous times without deviating from the set standard but a human may find a more creative method. Ocado is working on a project that perfectly highlights how machines and robots can interact with the work environment. They created a robotic assistant called SecondHands that can lift items higher than a human can but it is a simple robot and is lead by a human technician who can use all the benefits of the arm.

As stated at the outset, the problem of technology competing with humans in the workforce is an old one but it is worth noting that everytime technology makes a certain type of work obsolete the workforce adapts. In 2016 a report by Deloitte showed that for over 140 years technology has created more jobs than it has destroyed. This suggests that the loss of jobs in the traditionally blue-collar jobs will probably be offset by job growth in the white collar areas. This is of little comfort to blue-collar workers with limited skills but it is the reality.

Is the iPhone X worth it?

The release of a new iPhone model is a much-awaited phenomenon for all Apple fans. iPhone X was not an exception. The $1000 technological brilliance is quite worth the price. Released in this September, iPhone X is the most expensive model of Apple iPhone so far. Let us unearth the top features of iPhone X so you can decide for yourself whether it is worth the price.

Super cool display

With corner to corner display, the elegant 5.8-inch screen employs super retina technology. The first of its kind OLED screen boasts of stunning colors and an excellent contrast ratio. By eliminating the home button and fingerprint scanner, the phone is almost entirely a screen. Barring a black notch on top that houses the front camera and sensors, the screen covers the whole front. Though the screen size is big, iPhone X is surprisingly smaller than the plus size phones.

Face ID

By the removal of a fingerprint scanner, Apple has introduced facial recognition for unlocking the iPhone X. Unlike its predecessors, face ID does not use simple image processing. It creates a 3-D map of your face. The state of the art technology boasts that its chances of being fooled are only 1 in a million. There is also a feature that hides your messages and notifications unless you look at it.

Top class camera

The iPhone X has a camera similar to that of iPhone 8. The dual camera system allows some DSLR like features like background blurring and better optical zoom. The front camera also comes with great features. A system known as True Depth is used which allows portrait mode when you take selfies. Google’s Pixel 2 and Samsung Note 8 are the only close competitors to iPhone X camera.

Elegant design
The edge to edge display gives an elegant and sleek appearance to the iPhone X. The glass bottom gives the phone a different look. It also comes with a stainless steel frame. As there is a great risk of dropping your phone, it is advised to use a case with it. The display is made of scratch-proof glass and is moderately tolerant to damages.

Going Wireless

With its earlier models, Apple has already removed the earphone jack. This was partly to promote Apple AirPods. With iPhone 8 as well as iPhone X, Apple has offered the provision for wireless charging. You can charge your phone using charging docks or charging mats. You can also perform a fast charging using the designated charging cables.
Smooth operation

The iOS 11 has several improved features as compared to its predecessors. The touchscreen responsiveness has almost doubled when compared to previous iPhone models. The animations and display are crisper and the overall performance of the handset is smooth. The A11 Bionic processor comes with 3GB of RAM. You won’t face any problems even while multitasking.

Brand and quality

The brand value of Apple has always been a compelling factor. Even with high prices, Apple is able to retain its customers due to the high quality it offers. It has maintained the same level of quality with iPhone X also. The display and casing is high quality. It is dust resistant and moderately water resistant (up to 1 meter and 30 minutes).

Keeping in mind all these features it is your call as to whether iPhone X is worth its price. For a tech geek like me, I would certainly say it is.

Unprecedented Legal Cases That Completely Changed Some Laws

The major role of the law is to safeguard social cohesion, and to ensure people live together in peace and harmony. In reality, social cohesion will be in effect when people become familiar with and acknowledge the authority and right of the law. There are various economic, social, political and cultural changes that led to change or formation of laws. However, there are unprecedented legal cases that completely changed some laws.

1. Lee Johnson Case (1989):

After Gregory Lee Johnson destroyed an American flag by fire in a protest, a Supreme Court negated the decision that condemned Gregory Lee Johnson of violating a venerated object. The court pronounced that there was no penalty on Lee Johnson since he was protected by freedom of speech in the first amendment bill.

2. Gibbons and Ogden Dispute over New York Waters (1824):

After federal government was given additional power, Aaron Ogden was exclusively permitted by New York State to sail across the waters from New York to some New Jersey ports. When Ogden registered a complaint against Gibbons for navigating steamships in his waters, the ruling from the Supreme Court rejected Ogden’s appeal.

3. Marbury and Madison Clash over Judicial Appointment (1803):

When James Madison who served as US Secretary of State in early 19th Century made an attempt to stop the Federal partisans from being given judicial positions, William Marbury who was an appointee of John Adams, the former president of United States sued him. The court decided that nobody had an authority to enforce the appointment of Judicial Personnel regardless of their position. The case led to the establishment of Judicial and Executive boundaries.

4. Obama care act (2012):

The Supreme Court endorsed most of the Obama administration’s affordable health care law in 2012. The ruling ascertained how American citizens will receive affordable health care.

5. President Nixon and Watergate Scandal (1974):

This led to the establishment of “Miranda rights” which has been in effect up to date.

8. Perry case on Same-sex Marriage (2013):

After claiming to be a Mexican-American during Second World War, Fred Korematsu was arrested after the police realized that he was a Japanese- American who tried to avoid an incarceration camp during Second World War.

How is the organic vs non-organic food war shaping up today?

Today we can choose between a lot of sorts of food what can be either organic or nonorganic. Those two industries after is proved benefits of organic food and side effects of nonorganic are constantly in the ‘war’. Because of bigger yields of non-organic food, this kind is higher widespread and available than organic. Organic food has a lot less resistance to weather conditions and other possible unsuitable conditions for breeding and that is why it gives fewer yields, and its price is higher. That is the only reason why non-organic food still stays high on markets, it is hard to produce enough organic food with competitive price to un-organic food.

Benefits of organic food

Benefits of organic food are high. It is much healthier and natural choice than another sort of food, and that is a better choice for our bodies. Without harmful additives, this food gives you best what nature can offer. It is also a lot richer with nutrients and vitamins than non-organic food. In nonorganic food, many nutrients and vitamins are destroyed with treating agents, so that kind of food has a really poor quality and a lot fewer benefits for human body. Even it is the truth that non-organic food actually look nicer, because of selective production, the real truth is that nicer, in this case, is not really healthy. Because of that look, many people were convinced before „Green Revolution” is start that nonorganic food is better. After World War 2 people become more aware of side effects of artificial fertilizers, and that is why it is discovered how much is bio-food better for us.

Organic farming is also a lot better for a ground because it is not toxic and it not destroying useful substances from the ground. There are no toxins in producing, so that is why the ground is not poisoned. From that type of ground grows much healthier products, even because production is not selective, those products don’t look so attractive.

Pros and cons of organic production:

Benefits of growing organic food in short lines are:

-Better product

-Better nutrition and vitamin value

-No toxins what can damage your health

-There is no damage to a ground

Cons of organic production are:

-Smaller cultivation

-Higher price of production

-Higher price of products

-Non-selective cultivation can’t guarantee more attractive look

Why non-organic production is worst choice for human health?

Nonorganic production is the result of higher needs for food in the world. That is why people needed to do anything to increase cultivation to get more products on smaller price. They accomplish that with selective cultivation and with adding many toxins and other chemicals what will guarantee them higher resistance. But this way of production, adding toxins and using fertilizers result with less nutrition and vitamin level in product and also its result with partially toxic food with many possible side effects for the human body.

Pros and cons of non-organic production:

Benefits of non-organic productions are:

-Higher cultivation

-Cheaper productions

-Lot more products on the same size places

-Cheaper products

-Selective cultivations guarantee a more attractive look of the product

Cons of non-organic production:

-Less nutritive and vitamin value of food

-Toxins in products

-Lot of possible side effects and allergies

-Soil pollution

-It is not healthy for body

Even people realized all benefits of organic food for a human body, the war between this two sides is not over, and probably it will not be for a long time. Main reasons for this are that organic production can’t produce enough products to satisfy the market needs, and it also can’t reach competitive price on the market, and a price is still really important for many people. That are main reasons why un-organic production still has better results on markets. Even people recognize the value of organic food, facts that is still much more expensive and that production can’t full fill needs of market making this battle of opponents with equal chance to win.

How companies are using innovative AI/Robotics to move forward

AI has become a must-have for any company looking to make progress in this age of technology. Almost any interaction with a company today involves the use of AI, and as time goes by, AI is going to take over most functions currently being run by human beings. What are these ways that companies are using AI in conducting their operations? Let us take a look:

Customer Service

Any call placed to a service provider is received by an automated machine which then proceeds to record the customer’s issue. Normally, the machine is programmed with different responses which the caller can select by pressing numbers on the phone. One advantage of this is that many customers can be served simultaneously by one machine, unlike a human customer representative who can only attend to one customer at a time.

Banking

Many banks have slowly started phasing out human tellers in their branches, and replacing them with computerized teller machines. Already, automated teller machines (ATMs) have eliminated the need to visit a bank to withdraw money. Banks have gone further and introduced self-service teller machines where customers can make deposits and get a receipt on a machine in less than 5 minutes. With this, customers need not worry about long queues at the bank when they need to make deposits. All they need is to place money on a machine and key in their details.

Customer Research

Companies have adopted robotics to establish the best goods and services to present to their customers. In order to do this, they use data trails left behind after customers use credit cards to make purchases. By using AI to track different demographics of customers, companies can accurately determine and predict the spending habits of each customer. In this way, AI can also be used to identify the best direction that a company should take by showing the goods and services that are not popular with customers.

Advertising

AI has been a key tool in identifying the most effective form of marketing of goods and services. By studying the browsing habits of individuals, companies can tailor-make advertisements meant for different audiences. If an individual frequents sites dealing with cars, machines and bikes, AI can point out that this individual would be a good prospect for car sellers. This use of AI saves money and time by streamlining ads and only sending them to relevant parties.

Security

Airlines use AI to screen passengers and maintain smooth operations at points of entry and departure in airports. A visit to a departure gate reveals AI in action; a computerized screen can read facial features using facial recognition software and relay the results to a database which brings up the person’s entire bio profile. This smart screening not only saves time but ensures minimal room for error that would occur if the screening were done by actual humans.

The reach of AI/robotics cannot be pushed aside. Everyday, companies are looking for more ways to digitize their operations and reduce their workforce while maintaining efficiency. One advantage of AI is that it is not prone to circumstances that affect normal humans- it can work day and night.

Useful Photography Tricks to Try with Your Mobile Phone or Apps

mobile apps

Anybody can pick up a mobile phone and take a photo. However, you need photography tips and tricks to capture great photos with your mobile phone. This article highlights useful photography tricks that will enable you to take great photos with your mobile phone.

Take extra seconds

Mobile phones provide a chance to take photos really fast. However, if you rush when taking photos with your mobile phone your pictures will be of low quality. Therefore, take extra seconds to ensure good composition of your photo. This includes improving the angle or lighting and figuring out where the viewer will be interested in. Taking an extra second to apply the basic principles of composition will improve the quality of your photos dramatically.

Wipe the lens

Mobile phones spend a lot of time in the bags, hands or pockets. This makes them really dirty due to grease, dust, dirt and fingerprints. If you don’t wipe the lens before you take a photo with your phone, this grease, dust, dirt and fingerprints will have a significant effect on its quality. Dirt blocks light from getting into the camera sensor. It also leaves dust spots, blurs or smudges on the photo. A clean lens enables you to take a clear, sharp image with your phone. Therefore, wipe the lens with a soft cloth before you take a picture with your mobile phone.

Adjust the camera settings

You need to know the settings of your mobile phone camera. Ideally, you should take control of exposure, focus, ISO and white balance when taking pictures with your mobile phone. It is important to note that some mobile phone cameras lock focus and exposure together. This means you can change photo lighting depending on your focus. In terms of white balance, you have four settings. Match them on the basis of your shooting environment to ensure better lighting for the photos.

Use Mobile Apps

There are many cool mobile apps today to edit your photos, add more, make then fun, and also to make your shots better for the type of shot you are looking to take. Kurtis Hon of Kande Photo Booths A Photo Booth Rental San Francisco company stated he loves some of the photo booth apps and it always gives him ideas to add more onto his own photo booth rental service.

Set a high resolution

Your mobile phone photos will be of a better quality when you set a high resolution. Instead of zooming, try to move closer to the subject. Basically, cropped photos have better resolution that zoomed in photos. Of course, high resolution requires large storage for mobile phone photos. That’s where cloud storage and photo sharing apps and services like Dropbox and Picasa come in. You can also get an SD card so that you can transfer photos through the internet with ease.

Keep the phone steady when taking photos

This is particularly important any time you take photos with your camera at night or in low light. In these conditions, the camera of your phone uses a slow shutter speed so that light can have time to hit the camera sensor. In that case, any camera movement results in blurred images. Therefore, place the phone on a solid surface, use a tripod or hold it with two hands to ensure that it remains steady.

Employ the rule of thirds

This entails dividing up the image mentally using two vertical lines and two horizon lines and positioning important scene elements along these lines or at their meeting points. The rule of thirds is based on the idea that an off-center composition creates a better shot.

Taking a quick snapshot using a mobile phone might be easy. However, following these tricks gives you full control of your mobile phone camera so that you can take a truly amazing photo.
