    7 Big Problems AI Is Solving

    There’s no escaping it. Wherever you turn, someone is probably talking about artificial intelligence (AI), and how it’s going to completely change the way humanity does, well, everything. At its core, AI will help us solve problems that are far too difficult for us to do on our own. How is this possible? Basically, AI is able to synthesize information in ways that might not seem intuitive to mere mortals; and it’s capable of doing it at incredibly fast speeds. The introduction of AI into our society will accelerate our advancement in ways previously thought impossible. Here are seven problems AI is solving right now. The Traffic Problem If you live or work near a major city, you know that traffic is a problem. And the facts are there to support that. In 2014, congestion costed the average commuter about 960 dollars. In that same year, about $160 billion dollars were lost on inefficiencies due to traffic congestion. Traffic is a huge problem to our society. It wastes time, money, and energy—three things we can’t afford to lose. AI will help us alleviate this issue. This is because AI will be able to operate self-driving cars as a whole system, as opposed to every individual driver acting on their own terms. Dangerous Spam Emails Spam used to be obvious. But people trying to scam you through email have become much more sophisticated in their tactics. Now, many dangerous emails appear totally legitimate to the average human, especially on first glance. This is where AI comes to the rescue. AI can analyze vast amounts of data in ways that would be impossible for a team of people. Doing this allows it to identify trends that are consistent with malicious emails. Only 0.1 percent of the average Gmail inbox is spam. The...
  • Small businesses can either make it or break it when trying to use a website to boost sales and increase market share. If you want to be competitive, you need to maintain a regularly updated website and not a static one. Blogs and market through emails should be consistently updated too. If you don’t want your time and money to be wasted, you need to consider adopting open source as well as commercial content management systems just like what other small businesses did in the last several years. You can choose from a different variety of platforms to use. But for you to determine the right website management solution for your small business, you first need to identify the advantages and disadvantages of the two kinds of content management systems (CMS), the open source CMS and commercial CMS. Advantages of Open Source CMS Price. This may be the best edge of an open source CMS because it is absolutely free. Wide development community. Unique features can be included in an open source CMS since many people around the world are usually involved in the project. Non-proprietary technology. Anyone can adopt the technology of the open source’s software. You can even migrate it to a different supported platform. You aren’t even locked into a single supplier and the software is always transportable. Disadvantages of Open Source CMS Price. Though we noted that the open source’s price is a pro, it also has its downside. The reason is that even if the technology has no cost, you will still need to hire someone who knows how to integrate the technology into your platform. Sometimes, the configuration costs can be as high as the price of the commercial CMS that is even bundled with vendor support. On the other hand, if you will...
  • The behind the scenes efforts of the medical industry can be tricky to navigate when the main focus is put on serving the patients. With that goal in mind, the industry is still built on businesses, which must run smoothly and effectively in order to run at all. With tons of medical supplies, medications, and equipment to keep track of, the patient’s best interest can easily get lost in the wake of tedious administrative duties. Even in a world built on technology many medical companies are still using old school spread sheets or even pen and paper to manage their countless medical supplies. In the minds of some, that’s the simplest way to do it. However, once the labor hours start to add up and supplies expire or go missing due to miscommunications, the simple strategy becomes a giant headache. Luckily, keeping track of your medical inventory doesn’t have to be a challenge. Adopting an app like Sortly can give your company that step above the rest when it comes to organization. Why People Are Scared of Medical Inventory Softwar Just the word software can be intimidating to people who aren’t experts with computers or any type of technology for that matter. The word carries this stereotype that it’s going to be intricate, confusing, and can only be used by a tech-savvy employee or trained professional. While some software comes with this burden, there are plenty that target the layman. The idea behind the inventory management software app Sortly is that it can be used by anyone (given permission by your company), anywhere, and without any training. Forget having to know anything about computers, if you can read, you can use the Sortly app. The intuitive design targets users of any skill level and helps you regain control of your...

    Game of War- Fire Age Review

The similarities between Game of War to others like The Hobbit: Kingdoms of Middle Earth and Kingdoms of Camelot are striking.

However, a trusting alliance will crush opposition and help achieve true colonial dominance. Playing the game is straightforward: building resources is as said and updates are glitch free. The best part about the game is the process of crafting novel weapons. During war, the crafted weapons deliver to their full potential. When attacking, the army...
