Ripple xrp value or price currently stands at $1.1361, and for upcoming investors, the question remains whether ripple is the best cryptocurrency to invest in. Well, maybe digging into the details of this crypto will help us establish whether it is worth throwing some dollars in it -for some possible cool profit in the near future. To begin, ripple xrp is an altcoin. It is considered as an alternative in case someone in not impressed by the price of the heavyweight coins –Bitcoin, Ethereum and the rest. Personally, I have been thinking about investing a few dollars into ripple xrp but the question keeps coming in -is it the best cryptocurrency for an upcoming millionaire like me or you?

Let’s Look Into Some Figures Relating to Ripple as a Possible Best Cryptocurrency

But before that, ripple.com wants to make it clear that there is a great difference between ripple and ripple xrp. Ripple is the supervising firm that ensures the coin’s transactions remain legal and on time, while ripple xrp is the digital asset or the actual cryptocurrency people invest in. Now, to the numbers: it is said there are 38,739,142,811 ripple coins in circulations, which in total translates to a market capitalization of $113.89 billion. Well to me, the figures are impressive and they basically show that the crypto asset is kinder stable -or it has a voice in the market

As in, logically, you’ll want to deal with a virtual currency that makes some sense in the market even if it is not that highly valued. While the worth of ripple xrp is also not best or eye-catching as it would be for Bitcoin -which currently hinges at around $13,000 -it is also evident that ripple xrp may enjoy the benefit of minimal gaps when it comes to fluctuation gaps compared to all other cryptocurrencies.

Amazon Go Uses ai –and It’s the First No-Checkout Convenience Store [updated]

Amazon Go
Amazon go launched now: via image png
Updated to define how exactly Amazon go uses ai technology and not really software or programming as some people thought during the testing of the Amazon go concept. It's a, no attendant glossary shop!

Amazon Go uses ai, and it comes in at the time when artificial technology seems to make almost anything possible. And by the look of things, this no-checkout convenience store might boost amazon’s earning to newer levels. CNBC reported that by October 2017 the giant retailer enjoyed a revenue earning increase of $43.7 billion -compared to $42.14 billion the previous year. North American sales clocked to $25.4 billion while international sales were 13.7 billion. With the new Amazon Go, using ai technology, these numbers are expected to hike farther.

Ever heard of automation? Now, this is the exact application of it. As in, Amazon Go ai use, is an automated grocery shop where you walk in, pick stuff and walk away -no cashier or representative to serve you.  If you can recall sometimes back, around November or December to be precise, concerns about AI (artificial intelligence) taking away over 40% of human jobs took the better part of the internet news.

Americans especially come out in social media and on national TVs to express their concerns but on the contrary, Germans and Chinese seemed okay with robots as an alternative workforce. With China even setting aside a budget of $2 billion to set up an AI pack. Well, let’s leave that for now, back to the No-Checkout Convenience Store, Amazon go use ai.

Litecoin Price Peaks Above $200 Again After a Difficult Week

Litecoin price peaks with $58.0 plus profit range  after a weak that seemed to shake the faith of anyone who possessed a few coins under their names. Well, to strike the balance and be fair, last week’s cryptocurrency instability affected nearly all popular and non-popular digital currencies -Bitcoin and Ethereum included. Sources say that the shakeup was somewhat related to fraud and this has led some folks to dig into the matter through a court case. The court case aside, as now seen: Litecoin price peaks above $200, which means that things are slowly normalizing back again. 

Well, in case you are used to only monitoring the big Cryptos like Bitcoin and Ethereum, be aware that maybe, you should start eye the movement of these other small digital currencies because they may soon matter. As in, today's headline which goes “Litecoin price peaks” is being received by upcoming investors with shouts, and that could be a sign that the crypto is growing and will soon worth a fortune. As of the time of writing, Litecoin price stands at $205.71 –from $147.44 in less than 2 days.

Litecoin Price Peaks at $200 Plus, What Does it Mean?

From a keen look, this is an increase in value of nearly $60 within 24 hours. Going by that rate we can safely say that this cryptocurrency is not a bad pick for those who want to invest in the “technology.” But worth mentioning is that investing with digital currency is relatively a risky affair as of now because you can't tell how things would be tomorrow.

AI is helping the Health Care System to climb to higher heights with Corti’s support on Emergency Communication. Well, if you are you are wondering who Corti is, - this an artificially Intelligent system, or call it a machine if you like. Basically, when AI is mentioned, it means a machine has been trained to operate relatively the same or close to how a real human would do.

In this case, the AI system is designed to detect and interpret signals as blur as they could be, and take-up vibrations emanating from emergency calls. It does that to offer advice to the emergency dispatchers on necessary actions. Corti is also able to think on its own and transfer the information to the dispatchers on the relative physical address of a caller (or the victim).

Here is a Real Life Scenario Where Corti the AI System Intervened

Scientists and members of the public alike are enthralled by the topic of AI (artificial intelligence). It’s as if everybody wants to hear what AI is up to or close to achieve next. During the CES (where roughly over 200,000 + tech enthusiasts attended,) people were drawn more to the AI projects and it like each researcher had a stunning idea. Among others, the exhibition and one that really seemed to be interactive and close to our daily application was the concept of teaching a computer to speak precise American English accents. Well…I think, Alexa, Amazon’s (artificial intelligence) assistant needs to hear this and give her opinion.   

Would that be Possible?

Well, the question is not really about whether a computer can speak native lingo: to surprise you, already one computer has been trained to successfully figure out various original American accents and that is artificial intelligence at work. Monty Barlow, a Cambridge Consultant researcher got special attention for this invention, where he claims to teach the machine.

                                                             Via: mediapool.bmwgroup

BMW is one of the top car manufacturers that you can hardly see a fleet of ten vehicles without spotting one of its models in the “group.” The company is a great investor and now it has acquired the Parkmobile to add to its worth. This is a smartphone app that offers guidance to drivers looking to park their cars in North American and its environs.

Ever since, packing has been a serious problem in almost all the cities of the world because people are becoming richer, adding cars into their portfolio, but the parking lot space remains the same for lack of space to expand. Therefore, whatever solution that attempts to tackle this issue is definitely a refuge for most people. That’s how the Parkmobile became a business and its demand is always rising up.

Ever thought that you can get a free deal from Apple? Well, that’s the only way to get people or customers that matter to try something they’ve not tried before and Apple is following the trend. The gadget giant recently started highlighting some popular subscriptions with free trials. Can we say it’s a quest to showcase the new content in the App Store? Well, that will still be very correct but ideally, you don’t really expect a give without a take back with such a big company.

The Why and Where Question?

For the why query, it is a way of advertising. And if you’ve not yet seen the apps, could be you’ve not been keen the new section located right under the “Apps” -where? In the App Store, check out for a “Try it For Free” title and there you are. Should we say that now even big companies have known to give back to the society? Well… it depends on one's angle of interest. But for now, let’s enjoy the free apps.

Amazon Alexa’s new capabilities to think on herself will remain with customers even after the dust of CES 2018 settles. Well… if you may not yet know who Alexa is, she is an AI built into Amazon devices like Fire TV and Echo Smart speaker. Amazon is not the only one with such technology, there is the Google Assistant just to mention one among many. However, Alexa is taking its assistant services to a whole new level as the makers have trained the system to invent its own thoughts other than relying on programming. 

Basically, the assistant uses facts to offer a recommendation to customers but sooner than later the Amazon device will serve the clients based on what she thinks is best. This will come into play basically in the entertainment scenarios, next to your sit in the living room. Alexa will start to interact with customers to offer not only info or update on what is popular on TV but also what she feels would be more interesting for your watch based on many factors. 

What facts?

While innovators are busy trying to bring their AI projects to life, but facebook is planning to assassinate its Facebook ‘M’ AI. What is that? M AI is an artificially-intelligent (system) that was originally designed to use human operatives to gauge its operatives and ensure that they were not only factual but also on point. Well, it's like this project was kind of a miscalculation because even when you look at its founding concept, something seems a miss and now the Facebook M AI will have to die!
 
However, the team working with Mark Zuckerberg has come out to say that it going to shut down the platform in the next two weeks which falls to the 19th of this month. The news strikes after 2.5 years of operation, which Facebook told the verge that the project was not meant to be something significant as it was just an experimental project.

I didn’t see the Facebook M AI assistant...?

Well, this project was not for public participation, only a handful of folks in San Francisco were meant to take part in the test. While we can take it that way, for now, it is possible that the project could not have been impactful even it was to be accessible to the whole public. According to Facebook, the idea behind inventing the project was that the system would learn to answer various questions through messenger.

LG’s New ThinQ Smart Fridge Runs webOS and has a Transparent 29-inch touchscreen



                                             Via: The Verge
 


Can we say that LG will exist forever because when you think it’s an old brand, they strike with a totally new invention, in fact, mind-blowing ones? Well to be fair, Samsung splashed the headlines with its touchscreen fridge sometimes back; while LG shone with refrigerators that turned transparent to have you see the inside without opening the doors. Now, LG, at the 2018 CES has merged the two concepts in its new InstaView ThingQ smart fridge

It is interesting how technology is trying to make life on earth super easy. In the sleeping mode, the new fridge is opaque but when you want to look what is inside you just need to knock the door twice and it will turn transparent, see? You’ll not need to use much effort, and in addition to that, you’ll also not have changed the temperatures by opening the door.

                                                                 Image Via: iqvis
Artificial intelligence is the most interesting word over the internet now -in almost all industries, which simply stands for AI. From news websites to big businesses like Google and IBM, it’s like everyone is focusing on this field, since 2016. However, 2017 become the year where more researchers and universities saw the potential of AI in solving society’s problems, and so all industries have collectively banked their research in machine learning and artificial intelligence. 

Just the other day, China budgeted for a 2.8 billion dollars Artificial Intelligence Park to be built on the northwest of Beijing -that is after more than 10 companies received massive funding to establish their AI-researches and application between 2016 and 2017. In fact, it’s anticipated that the AI-industry will be worth almost $50 billion by 2021. 

But What Exactly is AI (Artificial Intelligence, from different industries point of view)?
