In Welcome to the Cars Forum
Hey. Hope you have done well. Well, it's the time of the week when we give you all the flavors that happen in the high-tech world. So for Friday, April 21, we're here with our weekly roundup of tech news. This week's news covers a ton of news from Facebook's F8 conference announcements namely the new mobile platform, Facebook Space, their ongoing research on brain-computer interfaces, Messenger Platform 2.0 and a lot more. Along with this, we have news from other companies, as well as Google's attempts to enter LinkedIn territory with Google Hire and Tesla making their Model S a lot cheaper. This is a big thing and we need to cover more without any delay so let's get started. Facebook launches the machine platform and rides it into the next 10-year roadmap This past week at its annual F8 conference, Facebook made some really exciting announcements. Last year, Facebook previously laid out the company's, and eventual, 10-year roadmap for transitioning into the realm of augmented reality and virtual reality is an important part of that plan. Mark took office this year with the same vision and said Latest Mailing Database augmented reality would be the next major computing platform and Facebook's investment to make it more mainstream. And in the future there will be mainstream audiences consuming glasses or lenses augmented reality content, and it will take us a while to get there. As of now, Facebook is making camera onboarding users the first resort to the AR age. This will help make AR easier and more mainstream. Mark showed some amazing demos of what the camera team has achieved. Swiping from the camera on the right, users will now be greeted with thousands of filters and AR effects. These will go beyond artistic photo frames and face filters to include 3D text and images. In one presentation, the giant puffy words reading "It's fed once" rose up the breakfast table, where a series of sharks swam around cereal bowls. In another demo, Facebook's camera turned a 2D photo into a 3D one. A mundane image of an office transforms chairs in many ways: appearing to be filled with water, or bouncy balls, or even skittles. To help the platform thrive the company has also released new tools for creators to create custom filters and frameworks. The camera effects platform, the company announced, will eventually be compatible with future hardware like glasses. Facebook recognizes that it is late to the AR party, but is confident that its advances in object recognition and machine learning will help it stay ahead of the curb. Facebook takes the next step into the VR future with the Facebook space When Facebook bought Oculus, the biggest question people asked besides "$200 million? Really?" was, what would a social networking company do as a virtual reality company? Facebook, at the time, said VR would be the most social experience ever. It all sounds vague at the time of acquisition, but Facebook showed us team leadership at Oculus this year. This week Facebook announced F8 in space. Spaces is a VR app from Facebook, and it's in beta right now. Space will try to capitalize on the popularity of Facebook in our daily lives, make VR more personal and take it to the next level. Since VR has gained a lot of momentum over the past 5 years, Facebook needs to do a lot of work to get users to embrace the terms of the idea of ​​a dedicated app virtual reality that actually works. In this sense, if you want to experience VR with friends, you can literally invite them to your headset. Apps like this have been popping up for a while now, and they all work on the same principle, which is to convince you to log into a friend's space or interact with strangers. It would be a bit like some anonymous chat room that has been around on the internet for a while. When you launch Spaces from the Oculus Rift, it logs you to your Facebook profile. So the space will have access to all the information you have added on the social network and serve you accordingly. As of now, there really isn't anything you can do in space. You can use a logo to draw in 3D space and you can see yourself using a mirror there. Also, you can use it to take a VR selfie of yourself and your friends and then post it to the selfie stick on Facebook. Facebook talks about brain-computer interface at F8 What is your wildest dream related to the future? Light sword? Flying car? Computer eavesdropping into your brain and reading your mind? Well, our last one for you, almost. This week at F8, Facebook announced that I'm thinking about the craziest things you'll hear this year. Facebook announced that they have 60 engineers working on brain-computer interfaces. what does that mean? This means that in the near future, you will be able to use your idea input. At about 100 words per minute. That's faster than touch typing, and what's interesting is that this all happens without having to get an implant. That means all this cool future stuff without surgery. Ultimately, this technology will allow users to control augmented and virtual reality experiences with their hearts, rather than screens or controllers. This could go a long way in helping people of different abilities lead normal lives. Interestingly, Facebook started technical work in this area only half a year ago. They have partnered with UCSF, UC Berkeley, Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory and Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis for the joint venture. They are also developing something called skin hearing. This is one way humans hear through their own skin. They've been prototyping hardware and software that allow your skin to mimic your ear's sound by translating the cochlea into specific frequencies in your brain. Facebook launches Messenger Platform 2.0 Last year, Facebook announced the Messenger platform to attract developers with a bot experience built on top of Messenger. This year, Facebook took things a step further, announcing a ton of new things with Messenger Platform 2.0. Messenger has rapidly grown to become more than just a chat app and more. Users use it to share pictures, videos and now even play games. With that in mind, it's not surprising to see that much of the work is for the Messenger at this year's F8. Messenger Platform 2.0 will simply be a messenger for the evolution of a communication tool for use throughout the enterprise. Facebook updated messenger codes so they can now be placed anywhere to allow direct interaction with bots. Another great feature is Smart Reply, which allows small businesses to roll out their own smart auto-responders. The game will also see an overhaul, and according to statistics, more than 15 billion games have been played on Messenger so now it makes sense that the company is investing in the space. That's why they introduce richness into rotating games, turning around in real time. It also launched a dedicated game tab to allow games to be discovered more easily. Google launches Google Leasing: Attempts at hitting LinkedIn LinkedIn is the go-to site we all know for finding jobs and building our professional network. But Google appears to be poised to enter LinkedIn's territory and grab a share of its user base. The search giant will launch Google services, which will then go public, accept and manage applications. The service hasn't launched yet, but the site is so up to the landing page. Several tech companies have reportedly partnered with Google and tested the new platform. These include companies like Poynt, DramaFever, CoreOS and others that are considering expanding their enterprise business with Google services. The project is part of Google's Enterprise and Cloud division. Tesla slashes the price of the Model S, making it more affordable Loyal readers of this blog know Tesla. If you know Tesla, you also know our mission to enable a world of sustainable transformation and energy transition. The company is trying to achieve electric vehicles through its line. And now, they're making it more affordable to ride the electric vehicle revolution. The company just slashed the price of the entry-level Model S by $5,000 to make it way more affordable too. The car will now start at $69,500. While that's still probably a little more than the usual starting price of $68,000, you have to consider the extra features that would bring this entry-level car to the boat.
