Meet Brian AI!

Human mind is the biggest unsolved puzzle of the mankind. Our ability to comprehend the world around, to learn information and analyze the future according to our bundle of knowledge was disturbing sage’s minds since antiquity. Classical philosophers tried to interpret mechanisms of education if a form of mathematical operations, which led to the creation of Artificial Intelligence conception — a set of processes, which could possibly recreate the functioning of the human brain. The basis was laid — and nowadays we can enjoy the latest achievements in the machine learning in our homes, offices, everyday lives.

Basic, yet incredibly challenging mission for every person is to work with a big amount of information. If you aren’t a genius, you can’t keep in mind more than 4-6 tasks at the same time. What shall we do if there’s a need to process and systematize more data than our mind can handle? In that case we can approach to the Artificial Intelligence. It’s long-run objective is to surpass the abilities of hominal brain, and the perspective of such outcome is highly possible.

One of the most impressive abilities of AI is its autonomous education. With a help of specific algorithms it analyzes data base, collected from multiple resources, and then builds its own more advanced response protocols — the more data AI processes, the more “intelligent” it becomes. This outstanding feature find a use not only in programming, astronomy, mathematics, but in our daily living — and Brian AI is definitely one of those apps, whose complicated structure makes burdensome problem as easy as pie.

Have you ever had a need to find some specific photo from hundreds of different shots? With Brian AI you can search, manage, organize more than 200.000 different images — both your personal or downloaded from the Internet. Practically impossible for human, such job for AI will take seconds. It’s a must-have app for the people who remain on the cutting edge in modern technologies and appreciate their time.

As far as you have a batch of photos to work with, choose our Brian AI as an assistant. It’s a deep learning powerful tool, which has plenty of useful functions, quickness in work and ability to educate when used.

NEO Cryptocurrency

What is NEO?

NEO is the first Chinese blockchain-project with open source, launched in August 2017 by developer Da Hongfei. But the history of the project began 3 years earlier.

In 2014, Da Hongfei created the blochain company OnChain in Shanghai and launched a cryptocurrency project called AntShares. OnChain’s main task is to create a new financial system that unites the real and virtual economy.

Because of the emphasis on smart contracts, ANS was even called the Chinese Etherium. Inspired developers decided to take a desperate step – complete rebranding. They wrote new technical documentation, updated the nodes, changed the site and conducted a large-scale ICO to raise funds for the launch of the updated and improved ANS.

In September 2016, the world saw NEO – a new cryptocurrency, capable, according to the creators, to surpass even Ethereum.

How does NEO Work?

In OnChain stated that the main goal of the company is not to issue another crypto currency, but to create a new model of economic relations between people. They call it Smart Economy and distinguish three main components: a platform for executing smart contracts, digital assets and digital identification. All of them are implemented in NEO technology.

For example, you can digitize documents for real estate and sell it for cryptocurrency, without involving legal or other intermediaries in the transaction.

The developers emphasize that with the help of NEO it is possible to digitize and change different assets: gold, car, houses, etc.

NEO is, above all, an innovative economic project, and its token is a tool for implementing the idea of ​​an integrated economy.

The Main Advantages of NEO

Excellent technical capabilities. The platform uses its own virtual machine NeoVM, which allows you to quickly launch even the most complex contracts. The theoretical bandwidth of the network is 10,000 transactions per second

High reliability. NEO has an enhanced dBFT protocol that effectively protects the system from most known cyber-attacks.

Easy to write smart contracts. Unlike Ethereum, which uses the exceptionally complex programming language Solidity, NEO supports Java, F#, C#, Kotlin, VB.Net, Microsoft.net, Go and Python.

Simple mining. Mining does not depend on the technical capacities of the miner.

Does NEO have problems?

Of course, it has.

Users have two main claims on NEO – lack of anonymity and pseudo decentralization. According to the developers, the exchange of digital assets cannot be anonymous – all transactions must be open and transparent.

OnChain has direct access to the transaction history and can quickly track any transaction. Developers control more than 60% of all NEO blockchain-nodes.In future, OnChain plans to cooperate with state structures and the Chinese government.

Is It Worth Investing in NEO?

Although many users are unhappy with the OnChain policy, most experts agree that NEO is a very promising cryptocurrency with a brilliant future. Why?

  • NEO offers innovative technical solutions that make the use of the platform more convenient.
  • NEO implements the technology of smart contracts, in which many see the future of the whole blockchain.
  • Corporations with a worldwide reputation are investing their money in NEO: Microsoft, Alibaba, HyperLedger, LegalChain, Wings, etc.
  • According to analysts, OnChain has every chance to make NEO an official currency in China. And this is one of the largest cryptocurrency markets in the world.

Why Cryptocurrency Has Value

What influences the price of Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies?

In comparison with fiat currency, the crypto has some advantages. This is because over time, money is inflated. And the Central Bank plays a big part in it. Cryptocurrency is eventually exposed only to the reverse process – deflation. This is influenced by the constant growth of world production and its limited volume in the market. Thus, it generates demand, which determines the price of the cryptocurrency.

Why is cryptocurrency becoming more valuable?

First, it was really difficult to realize that not only the state is able to issue money. However, imagine that we actually accept a monetary unit as payment for a good or service only because there is certainty – other market participants will accept these funds and provide their services respectively.

cryptocurrency-600x398

Why cryptocurrency has value?

Careful consideration of the system’s operation, its protection from the inflationary process and the absence of the fraud possibility raise the popularity of the cryptocurrency. Demand was also generated with the initial desire of some participants to sell their services and products for this currency.

After the world system abandoned the “gold standard”, money began to depend on the states’ production capability and the policies of their governments. Cryptocurrencies do not have such uncertainty.

0*JQyzRVjxc8a6q45T.

What determines the price of the crypto:

  • The limited demand and supply;
  • Use of the blockchain system;
  • The utility of the currency, its ease of use and storage;
  • Perception of its value by the public;
  • Its cost;
  • Media opinion;
  • Investors’ deposits;
  • Fraud impossibility;
  • Innovation;
  • Anonymity.

Due to the fact that the cryptocurrency is a developing market, due to the changes it imposes on the financial system, the market is still unstable. In combination with many of the above factors, the price of a digital currency can quickly grow and fall, which makes it a risky investment without proper research. However, the advantages make it suitable for payments processing and investing. The latter was actually one of the initial intentions of Bitcoin.

Simply about Blockchain

If you have not spent the last couple of years in a hermitage, you’ve probably heard about bitcoins and blockchain. Now, even schoolchildren are actively engaged in mining. Let’s try to figure out what is really blockchain and why everyone is going crazy.

The heart of the matter

Blockchain technology is primarily designed for secure storage of data. Here you can store any important information, from credit obligations to new currencies. The reliability of the entire structure is due to the fact that the register of data is not concentrated somewhere in one place but is distributed among thousands of users around the world. Thus, the very possibility of a hacker attack and some kind of clandestine manipulation of information is excluded.

Cryptography

Actually, the blockchain is just a chain of cryptographically connected blocks. A new block is added to the end of the whole chain, all blocks together are connected by mathematical algorithms. This technology can be used not only to record financial transactions, but for everything that has value.

Hashing

The hash function is a special algorithm that takes input data (any, from image to binary code) and creates from it a code sequence of a specific length. Same files will produce the same hash on the output.

Database

The easiest way is to imagine the blockchain as a kind of database, duplicated tens of thousands of times throughout the network. The database is updated constantly, which ensures transparency and verification of information.

Safer than bank

That sounds ambitious, but according to many experts, the blockchain really became the guarantor of information accounting. The use of this technology excludes the influence of the human factor on the outcome of the transaction: without the agreement of the parties involved, even changes to the general register of data will not be made.

Protection against intrusion

Copies of the database are kept on all participating computers. Decentralised system makes hacker attack impossible. In addition, the hashing process is irreversible, which allows reliable security of personal data: an attempt to change a transaction or an original document will result in a new hash, different from the existing one in the system.

 

How does Cryptocurrency Work

Bitcoin is a decentralized cryptocurrency. Its emission is not controlled by any state, transactions are transparent and anonymous. The system is securely protected, it is simple and at the same time extremely complex. In a couple of years, the cryptocurrency and mining are spreading all over the world.

Who Invented Bitcoin?

The history of the Bitcoin creation is ambiguous, intriguing and mysterious. The author of the cryptocurrency is the ephemeral Satoshi Nakamoto – an Internet user (or a group of users) who published an article on cryptocurrency in the mailing list at the end of 2008. They described the digital peer-to-peer currency. At the beginning of the next year Nakamoto released the first software for working with cryptocurrency.

Bitcoin Basis

  • Hash function. A mathematical transformation by an algorithm that turns any set of information into a unique number-letter value of a certain fixed length – a hash. Something like a cipher. Even a small change of one character in the original data set, causes the output (hash) to change drastically.
  • The key element of the bitcoin system is a blockchain. It is a chain of blocks where information on transactions in the network is stored for the entire time of its existence. A copy of this unique database is kept by every member of the system, gradually and constantly updated due to the receipt of new blocks.

Why is It Safe?

What happens if someone decides to change the transactions in the block and cancel the money transfer or change the addressee? He can do it, but then the hash of the block will change. A new branch will appear in the chain.

To fix its fraudulent block, a hacker will have to solve a new task in 10 minutes faster than others. And one can not solve it beforehand by building blocks, because the solution depends on the hash of the previous block. Thus, an attacker will have to own at least half the power of a Bitcoin network, in order to solve a new task with 50% probability and build new blocks. All in all, this is practically unreal and completely unprofitable.

How are Bitcoins Mined?

Performance diagrams of the network clearly demonstrate that video cards are not of the utmost importance in the field of mining. CPU left this niche in 2011, GPU – in 2013. Now the Bitcoins are mined on the application-specific integrated circuits (ASICs), which are exclusively for the hash calculation. Nevertheless, lots of other cryptocurrencies are still being mined on video cards.

How Does GPS Work?

Global Positioning System (GPS) – a system of global positioning through satellite navigation – today is one of the most evolving technologies that finds application in various fields. GPS technology is now used in business, production, and by ordinary people for common purposes.

HOW IT WORKS

Developed in the 1950s by the U.S. Department of Defense, the GPS system is a very complex structure, which can be understood only by a specialist in this field. Nevertheless, we will explain the general principles of work in simple terms.

GPS is based on three main segments:

  • – space;
  • – control;
  • – custom.

The space segment is currently represented by 32 satellites located in medium earth orbit. Satellites broadcast a radio signal, which is intercepted by transmitters on Earth. The signal allows you to determine in real-time the location of an object equipped with a GPS-receiver (custom segment).

The control segment includes monitoring stations, the main control station and antennas, which are integrated into a common network on the Earth.

GPS APPLICATIONS

Although the project was originally developed for military purposes, today the vast majority of users are civilians. Almost any modern mobile device is equipped with a GPS-navigator, not to mention the professional equipment of sailors, pilots, rescuers, doctors, scientists and, of course, the military.

 GPS IS USED IN:

  • Cartography. With the help of GPS, detailed maps and plans of terrain with landform of any complexity are drawn up. These maps can also be used in a variety of ways – from tourism to the elaboration of military strategies;
  • Geodesy. The precise boundaries of land plots and the coordinates of any specific objects are marked off;
  • Transport monitoring. Everyone knows the “map of traffic jams”. Without the help of GPS, tracking traffic flow would be an unaffordable luxury with the use of air tracking;
  • Cellular communication. It is used to determine the exact location of the subscriber calling the rescue service, because the victim cannot always accurately indicate his coordinates or simply does not have time to do it;
  • Tectonics. GPS helps to observe the movements of tectonic plates. This allows to predict earthquakes and volcanic eruptions;
  • Computer games. There is a whole game genre that uses the location of the player in real time;
  • Weather forecast. Hundreds of meteorological stations around the world transmit data on weather conditions and at the same time connect them to their location;
  • Aviation and Sailing. GPS transmitters allow to track aircraft or vessel directions in real time and, if necessary, respond quickly to a distress signal;
  • Geo targeting. Often used by social networks visitors;
  •  Navigation. Perhaps the most common application of GPS for today. Everyone can easily determine his location in an unfamiliar place and quickly find a route to desired address. In addition, the coordinates of cafes, restaurants and hotels are loaded into the maps. So, the search for the right place with the development of GPS takes a few seconds.

GPS ADVANTAGES

The technology of global positioning is firmly established in everyday life due to its advantages:

  • Simplicity for users. You do not need to be an expert to start using the application for a smartphone with GPS support;
  • Cheapness. All that you need today is to purchase a device with a GPS receiver, the cost of which is extremely low. They are built into computers and ATMs, phones and even cameras;
  • Worldwide coverage. The entire globe, except for poles, is covered by the GPS network;
  • High accuracy. Today, advanced technologies allow to determine the location of the receiver or transmitter to within one meter. The quality of GPS functioning is practically independent of weather conditions.

Who Created Wi-Fi Technology

Hedy Lamarr. Yes, we should thank that same actress for using the Internet Wi-Fi and GPS. How did it happen?

Hedy was born in Austria in 1913. Being a Jew, she hid her origins in every way. In 1933, Hedy starred in the film “Ecstasy”.  It was the first time in the history of cinema when a completely naked actress was shown. In many countries the film was banned. The parents of the actress worried about their daughter’s reputation. Therefore, they married her to the arms tycoon Fritz Mandl. He was also a Jew. In addition, most importantly, it was Fritz who produced grenades and cartridges for Hitler.

Her husband was very jealous, and Hedy had to leave the movie. But she accompanied her husband to military laboratories and quickly figured out the principle of the action of anti-ship weapons and guidance systems.

Lamarr was not happy with her husband. Once Hedy escaped. The girl ran first to London, and then to the USA. In Hollywood, she was noticed by Louis Mayer, the founder of Metro Golden Mayer.

When radio-guided missiles were adopted, a serious problem arose. Opponents easily violated the guidance of the torpedo, revealing its frequency. Then Hedy Lamarr, together with George Antheil, whom she had met in London, came up with how to protect the torpedo control over the radio (she also assisted with the creation of controlled torpedoes).

Here’s how it worked: a random code was used on the transmitter that would change the transmission channel. At the same time, frequency transitions were synchronized on the receiver. The invention of Lamarr and Antheil became the basis of Spread Spectrum – the connection with the extended spectrum, which is used everywhere. These are GPS and Wi-Fi.

Lamarr was forgotten in the last years of her life. She lived poorly. Moreover, Hedy was engaged in litigation about slander and unauthorized use of her name. For example, in 1998 Corel Draw, a program for graphic design, used a portrait of an actress. Hedy immediately filed a lawsuit, but her claim was dismissed.
