Weekly Tech Roundup for April 12 2019

“Technology succeeds when it recognized that its users are human.” – Mark Sanborn
“Technology will definitely solve all our problems, but in the process it will create brand new ones. But that’s okay because the most you can expect from life is to get to solve better and better problems,” quipped Scott Adams. Technology does not grow without making some mistakes. Sometimes the mistakes give us what we are looking for and more. Check out these inspiring technology trends that might just inspire an increase in your love for technology.

We also included some snippets from our daily knowledge development sessions, just to give you a little extra knowledge. After all, knowledge is never enough. Take your time and digest every one of them. The world is fast evolving and so should your mind.

Tech Snippets

Python Coding Interview – Stand out

In every programming language there are different routes we take so solve a problem, some routes are long and in efficient while some are shorter and efficient. Python is no different , below are some highly effifient tools that you should be aware of. -CO (Python)

Facebook’s AI World Map

Facebook is using AI to map the whole world’s population. We already knew that. What we didn’t realise is that the map would be accurate up to a few meters. Facebook has a plan to create a new ISP that will be government independent, so this project probably tells them where to invest and where not to. The maps are pretty cool too. -BA

Spoofed Fingerprint Sensor

Samsung Galaxy S10 fingerprint sensor is one of the not so hot qualities of the new model. It uses an ultrasonic sensor that was supposed to be difficult to spoof but it has been proven to be not all it was cracked up to be. -EE

Rise of the Venture Studio

Innovation in the venture industry is a venture studio. The difference is starting with a team rather than starting with a proven idea. If venture studios will become the new accelerator remains to be seen. It does not stop the bandwagon effect for corporates though. -BA

Future Changing Invention with Bill Gates

From Robotics to to Carbon(IV)oxide Catcher to Custom Cancer Vaccines, join Bill Gates as he tells us about the 10 inventions that will change the future for the better.  -SA

Quantum Computing

Quantum Computing, still an emerging technology, is one of the most fascinating things researchers, organizations, and governments have been working on in this century so far. The race toward building the first fully-functional, fully-working quantum computer (also called supercomputer) is on.

With its impressive computational power quantum computers will most like be a cloud service in the near future rather than on-premise machines. IBM is already offering cloud-based quantum computing services.

The first quantum computer is going to have a significant advantage over the others. In 2019, the competence to achieve supercomputer supremacy will intensify. As a consequence, the last mile in the race will remain mostly secretive, for obvious reasons. -GM

Omni Processor Water Purifier

Need water but think it’s not clean enough to drink. Get an Omni Processor Water Purifier. Not only does it purify sewage water to highly purified water, it also generates energy that can be used by you. -EI

Deactivated but Still Tracked

Do you know that after deactivating your Facebook account, Facebook still tracks you? Ensure you up your privacy settings before deactivating your account on Facebook. -MY

We are working hard to keep ourselves updated and we think you should too! Time for some Shameless Advertising:

  • Did we mention that we build awesome tech? From core software development to bespoke Enterprise systems, check out Development + Support Services to see more details.
