A REASON TO SMILE; GUARANTEED INTERNET SPEEDS WITH A NEW ERA OF 5G TECHNOLOGY

Hello there techies. What can be a much better gift to us other than fast internet speeds and fast download speeds with the evolving apps and sites that require much data? Well, I may say, I am one person who blames the speeds especially when it comes to downloading content.

Well, we now all have a reason to smile as a new technology is about to sweep us off our feet with its great and improved capabilities. The new era of 5G is about to dawn on us. It is not expected to be in use anytime this year but is expected to have its landing around 2019-2020.

This comes after having a multitude of great experiences with the 3G and 4G technologies. We were all amazed especially at how fast 4G improved speeds by 5x compared to the previous 3G and increased also its latency effect. This, seemed like a very great improvement, however, the networking geeks did not stop at that. They have revolutionized this to bring up the 5G which also follows the newest mobile standards of IEEE 802.11ac and plays a crucial role in implementing the future where we no longer have www (world wide web) but where we have wwww (world wide wireless web).

The 5G technology is expected to have several features in its package some of them being:

  • Increased speeds of 1-10gbps which is an improvement from the previous 100mbps. Believe it or not but it is all happening. This only justifies more unbelievable happenings in the technology arena having AI’s creating their own AI’s, magical right!
  • Increased latency effect. This is the distance between the cause and the effect. This is now improved from the current 4G where communication was enhanced due to the reduced latency effect from the communication phone tower to a user’s phone to make and receive messages and calls.
  • Increased bandwidth. This is good news to our ears as it implies that we will be able to enjoy the luxury of faster downloads and ability to use more complex internet apps.

This new technology is keeping companies on their feet not to be left behind when the new technology will be deployed. Currently, Apple has been given a greenlight to have it test the 5G technology. This, however, will have to be done within a line of site. Frequency ranges of 27.5-28.35Ghz and 38.6-40Ghz have been requested for test procedures for use in upcoming iPhones. However, the 28Ghz spectrum is reserved for earth to satellite communications. Previous openings indicate that drones or satellites for Apple Maps improvements could be of potential use. Google and Facebook are also running their own tests on 5G.

Other companies are having a time-rush as they create and improve their applications and devices to meet the incoming 5G technology. This comes especially with the improvement in IoT and smart devices. Some of these companies are: Qualcomm, Samsung which are going the hardware way having Qualcomm create a 5G modem and Samsung creating a 5G home router. Nokia and Ericsson going the mobile way having Ericsson create the first 5G radio device.

Let’s all embrace the new 5G technology with open arms as we wait its deployment which will once all the network architectures have all been put into place. This will make access to the internet much faster, much more enjoyable considering we are in an era where we live online unlike previously where we lived offline doing everything manually.

THE RISE OF KILLER ROBOTS WILL LEAVE HUMANS UTTERLY DEFENSELESS

Well, well, well, in this day and age, where all sort of things are happening in the world, corruption, lack of healthcare, war, terrorism name it all. The list is endless. We can never anticipate what will happen next or what invention will pop-up overnight.

With the invention of Artificial Intelligence, an integration between machine learning and deep learning, it has taken control of major industries. From the technology industry, Science and Engineering industries.  Recently, we had Google AI’s creating their own AI’s (unbelievable it is, but it did happen, robots created other robots). AI, has been called the next future. True to that, it is the next future of technology as it solves what man cannot do in minutes.

AI’s are proving to take over human’s capability and functions. They are surpassing what any ordinary human being can do. Their evolution is great but comes with its own disadvantages, including loss of employment as recently experienced by companies such as SoundCloud and Microsoft which laid off many of their employees, recently.

The AI’s have imitated most of man’s actions and behavior’s and this includes talking, teaching, and some go to the extent of imitating emotions. Recently, a robot “thought to itself” if I may say so, why can’t it go a step further and imitate the humans by committing suicide. This I can call as “The Robotic Suicide Mission.” (Very weird, right?)

robot-ai

This robot, that decided to experiment with suicide was employed as a security robot at a Communications Agency in Washington DC. The robots are equipped with cameras to provide a more physical experience than your regular security (CCTV) camera.  According to the company marketers, they state that the robot is much better than human guards. They attest this to some of the features that the security robot has such as:

  • It never gets bored of what it does, unlike humans, we all agree that at one time or another we felt bored with whatever we were doing.
  • The robot understands its own environment and judge whether there is a problem around the area or not using a combination of video cameras, microphones, which when they detect something is wrong, it produces sounds like squeaking, whistling to make others alert, and it is expected to get better features with time like gun detection and to be taught through machine learning to learn and understand human movements.
  • It frees people from carrying out patrols around the area and it does not get attacked.
  • It recognizes forensic capabilities such as recording license plates as listed in the company’s website.

The K5 robot drove itself and into pool drowning which has led to its death. The robot has also had other misfortunes previously including, running over a 16-month-old toddler and hit the child’s head and the child fell but the robot continued to still hit the child, leaving the child with injuries on the leg and foot.

This comes a day after one of the people behind Artificial Intelligence, Elon Musk, came out and spoke out at the US National Governs Association meeting, about how AI could be a threat to human civilization where the AI’s will come to harm humans. He stated that he was referring to Artificial General Intelligence and not your used to AI’s such as Siri and Cortana. His statements, currently cannot be believed by many but some of truth in it can already be seen from the security robot and from a recently created Inspirobot that went crazy when it decided to generate weird and crazy posters instead of motivational posters.

We can speculate and say that the robot took this drastic measure trying to imitate humans as they say, the world has become a terrible place to live in. But ideally, this is not the right act for any human or robot. Speak out to others and let others hear and help you out in difficult situations. A time is coming when robots will take over and human beings may lose control resulting in many dangers to humans.

Like, share and comment your view on the future of AI’s and what you think about the robot’s suicidal mission.

A BACKFIRE IN SILICON VALLEY AGAINST WOMEN HARASSMENT IN THE TECH INDUSTRY

Women have been a center of molestation and bedevilment over the years. We have been viewed as inferior people within the human-race and as unworthy of being part of any great position or role within the society. Leading to being labelled with tags such as inferior, unable, unworthy, useless, name it all. This has led to some fields and industries classifying themselves as male industries, such as medical fields, technology fields and engineering fields. This has been aggravated by the male gender taking advantage of a female and denying them chances in these fields. Women applying for positions in such fields are accepted as a last option and women competing for the same leadership positions tend to be looked down upon because of their gender. This happens despite one being very good or a prowess in a certain matter.

Luckily as years go by, due to women empowerment, more women stand against such vices and succeed within the male-dominated industries.

Despite women empowerment and gender-equality rules being passed on in government constitutions, women still experience challenges. This is especially for those in the tech industry. Many women are still being sexually assaulted and abused by their fellow colleagues and bosses.

Most women tend to be sexually harassed as a price to getting promotions within their offices in the tech-industry, or in order for them to get employed at a certain company. They are mostly told that by their leaders and failure to which they end up not getting their rightfully acquired posts.

Recently, within Silicon Valley, the famous arena for developers and programmers, women have come out in large numbers to openly reveal their hidden cries which were caused by sexual harassment within their places of work. The turmoil over sexual harassment within Silicon Valley came to light on Monday after one of the prominent investors,  Dave McClure, resigned from the company. This came after a woman, Sarah Kunst, braved up and went on live to state and reveal to the New York Times about an unwarranted advance from Dave McClure, as she was applying for a job at the company.

The stand taken by Sarah Kunst, was a great one and one to be emulated by all other ladies in the industry and in any other field. After her act, Dave McClure, apologized saying that, “I’m a Creep. I’m Sorry,” which led him to resigning.

Other women came out to embrace their inner courage and speak out of having experienced similar acts from the same investor, Dave McClure. Other women also spoke out loudly on experiencing the same acts in other companies as well by other tech executives, including Marc Canter, a start-up adviser, whose suggestive messages to Wendy Dent, an executive with the start-up Cinemmerse, were reviewed by The Times.

Earlier on, Susan J. Fowler,spoke up on sexual harassment. Her account of sexual harassment, discrimination and retaliation at Uber led to internal investigations that spurred the resignation of Uber’s chief executive, Travis Kalanick, encouraged women who had been subjected to sexual harassment to speak up.

The various actions taken by these ladies should be a stepping stone for all ladies to speak up against sexual pervasiveness within the tech industry. Many women came out on twitter to stand for a sexual harassment free arena within the tech industry and to speak out against such vices. The posts encouraged women in the tech industry to speak up and not to allow themselves to be disrespected and humiliated by their fellow colleagues within the industry.

This should also act as a call to other women in other industries to also join in, and stand against sexual harassment in their various capacities.

Lets all, as ladies stand up and say no to sexual harassment in the tech industry and create an environment that is friendly for future generations to come.  SPEAK UP AND LET YOUR VOICE BE HEARD. For the men, stand for what is right, stand for your sisters, mothers, aunts, wives and nieces against molestation and sexual harassment.
