Just Buzz... Where is AI?

Speaking to Recode’s Kara Swisher and MSNBC’s Ari Melber, Pichai said AI is “one of the most important things that humanity is working on. It’s more profound than, I don’t know, electricity or fire,” adding that people learned to harness fire for the benefits of humanity, but also needed to overcome its downsides, too. Pichai also said that AI could be used to help solve climate change issues, or to cure cancer.

We are seeing some exciting things in the industry, Samsung’s massive 8K TVs apparently use AI to upscale lower resolution images for the big screen. Sony has created a new version of the Aibo robot dog, which this time promises more artificial intelligence. Travelmate’s robot suitcase will use AI to drive around and follow its owner wherever they go.  Kohler has invented Numi, a toilet that has Amazon’s Alexa voice assistant built in etc.,

Feasting your programming appetite with microservices

I have been coding for more than 25 years and have used more than 18 different programming languages (and their associated frameworks), spanning every programming style from simple scripting to procedural, to objected-oriented, to dynamic and functional — which is more attractive to the software engineering community these days.

Let me confess, every time I switch to a new language or style I always think, “Oh, hope I can also do that.” Trust me, no language is complete; no style is perfect. So, the only way to feast your programming appetite is to try something different which gives more flexibility. I honestly think the microservices style of application is the one that best delivers that needed flexibility…and the fun that most of us are seeking.
