Trends to look forward in 2023- social media, music and gaming

Trends to look forward in 2023- social media, music and gaming

There are a lot of activities to explore in the coming time, and there could be bigger technology and developing companies which are going to play big in the coming year.

Music and game industries have been going together for more than a decade now, but it was this year where a lot of talking related to the music and ‘the metaverse’ took place. Today, it is all about gaming in the 3D/virtual worlds and augmented reality and it is always backed with music depending on the kind of gameplay we have.

The major excitement is about the potential for gaming in the metaverse for real. This means that there is a lot of activity to explore, from some of the biggest technology and game development companies. 

Here are the firms we’re been watching keenly, and you can find them below.


Epic Games

Epic Games, the developers of Fortnite games have reportedly worked with artists like Travis Scott, Ariana Grande and Marshmello to set piece performances within its flagship game. The company has put in smaller in-game concerts and they launched a Grand Theft Auto-style in-game radio station too, which gained popularity. 

The company’s musical ambition has stretched beyond and in November 2021 it acquired Harmonix, a veteran music-games developer to “develop musical journeys and game play for Fortnite.”


Meta

Formerly Known as Facebook, Meta is much excited about the metaverse. It could easily be known as the company itself changed its name to reflect it. This is much visible that Music is playing a prominent role in the company’s exploration of virtual reality technology. 


Niantic 



The company aims at the mission of emerging technology, to enrich our experiences as human beings in the physical world. Niantic is the company behind the most successful mobile AR games (well, the only successful ones, on a global scale) like Pokémon Go. 

The company dabbled in music before: a collab with Ed Sheeran (November 2021). The company further unveiled Lightship, a software development kit (SDK) to help developers and brands for creating their own AR apps and games. 

Niantic has further invested in music/tech startup Pixelynx, which is using Lightship to develop its own music-themed game. 


Riot Games 


Yet another familiar company is known to develop League of Legends, one of the biggest games which have been used for esports. Riot Games has a history with music and has booked various artists to play its big esports events. The company has released music from its soundtracks through the FUGA deal. The company has been tackling the challenge of providing gamer creators on Twitch with music which they could use without takedown fears, through its own releases and a partnership with licensing startup Slip. 


Apple

It is all about updation with the latest technology when we speak of Apple. The company’s involvement in the metaverse has been visible, and it has been focusing purely on App Store as a distribution model for other companies’ games. The company has been working on AR and VR experiences to work on the league accordingly. As per the sources, it is said that the VR headset from Apple is scheduled for 2023. 


ByteDance / TikTok

ByteDance, the parent company of the short video platform has recently gone on a hiring spree for the business. Short video platform needs music and for that, Meta’s VR strategy has been expected to feature in ByteDance and Pico plans too. Even the thought of a VR TikTok is making our head spin a little.


Snapchat


Snapchat is another company which has been contributing to the metaverse. It has focused on augmented reality lenses which started off as novelties (rainbow vomit, flippy dog tongues) and have grown into a creative, fun and innovative platform for developers to play with AR. 

And these are the top hand-picked companies which have been working as per the growth focusing on the future, and metaverse is going to play a vital role in their businesses individually.

Triumph TE-1 electric bike will hit 100 kmph in just 4 seconds

Triumph TE-1 electric bike will hit 100 kmph in just 4 seconds


The Triumph TE-1 prototype is the company’s first electric and very fast motorcycle. You can estimate its speed by the fact that it can reach speeds of 0 to 100 kmph in just 4 seconds. Its performance is very good in its category. Triumph has several high-speed ICE motorcycles in its portfolio, but now this feature EV is also going to enter the two-wheeler market.

The company has completed the fourth and final stage of performance evaluation in this regard. If we go by the performance figures of the TE-1, it is going to be a smoky entry in the market. Overall this bike has performed well in many categories. Currently, there is a lot of emphasis on the production and use of electric vehicles in the country and the world. As far as India is concerned, programs such as subsidies are also being run by central and state governments to increase the use of electric vehicles.


However, this bike is inspired by the Triumph Street triple. The bike gets a fresh design with twin pod head lamps. Triumph says the TE-1’s images look exactly like a real motorcycle. The bike is completely covered with an aluminum chassis and weighs a total of 220 kg. Due to its chassis design, it has a higher power-to-weight ratio than other current models.

Range and Charging: Talking about the charging time, this electric bike can be charged from 0 to 100 percent in just 25 minutes. Currently, there is no model available in the market that offers such a fast charging speed. Prototype means a project that is being worked on and Triumph has not yet given any information regarding the model’s train date.

World Hepatitis Day 2022: Hepatitis causes many dangerous diseases including liver cancer, how to protect

World Hepatitis Day 2022: Hepatitis causes many dangerous diseases including liver cancer, how to protect


World Hepatitis Day is observed every year on 28 July to raise awareness of viral hepatitis, which causes inflammation of the liver that leads to severe disease and liver cancer.

The world is currently facing a new outbreak of unexplained acute hepatitis infections affecting children. WHO, together with scientists and policy-makers in affected countries, are working to understand the cause of this infection that does not appear to belong to any of the known 5 types of viral hepatitis viruses: A, B, C, D and E.

This new outbreak brings focus on thousands of acute viral hepatitis infections that occur among children, adolescents and adults every year. Most acute hepatitis infections cause mild disease and even go undetected. But, in some cases, they can lead to complications and be fatal.

Global efforts prioritize the elimination of hepatitis B and C infections. Unlike acute viral hepatitis, hepatitis B and C lead to chronic disease that is asymptomatic for many years, resulting in cirrhosis, liver cancer and death. In the WHO European Region, hepatitis B and C are responsible for more than 100 000 lives lost every year.

While we have the guidance and tools to diagnose, treat and prevent chronic viral hepatitis, these services are often out of reach of communities and are sometimes only available at centralized or specialized hospitals.

On World Hepatitis Day 2022, WHO is highlighting the need to bring hepatitis treatment and care closer to primary health-care facilities and communities so that people have better access no matter what type of hepatitis they may have.

WHO aims to achieve hepatitis elimination by 2030. To get there, WHO calls on countries to achieve specific interim targets by 2025:

to reduce new infections of hepatitis B and C by 50%

to reduce deaths from liver cancer by 40%

to ensure that 60% of people with hepatitis B and C virus are diagnosed

to ensure that 50% of those eligible receive appropriate treatment.

The History of YouTube: What to Know

The History of YouTube: What to Know

YouTube (an American online video sharing platform owned by Google) was launched on February 14, 2005 by Chad Hurley, Steve Chen, and Jawed Karim. The founders of You tube wanted to create an easy way on how people could upload and share videos worldwide. Before YouTube was introduced, there were no reliable sources for one to share videos on the internet. For this reason, the three buddies, Chad Hurley, Steve Chen, and Jawed Karim thought of starting a platform where people could share their beautiful experiences through online videos.

However, YouTube had a hard time getting traffic in the first months after the launch. They uploaded the first video titled “Me at the zoo” featuring Jawed Karim on April 23, 2005. But despite starting low, YouTube has risen to become the best video upload site and the 2nd most visited online site after google. 

Before YouTube was founded, other video platforms such as Real player, Windows Media Player, Google Video, and Share Your World were available. However, these sites required many processes before uploading videos and were expensive to the users as one was required to pay before sharing videos.

YouTube brought better ways to upload, access, comment, like, and share videos with fewer requirements, unlike the early sites. The three founders started their work at Mellon Park, California, with a dream of building a computer application that would create an efficient way for people to share videos online without complications. Unlike previous video uploading platforms, YouTube grew to become the world’s best video-sharing website.

Neural Crossword Solver Outperforms Humans for the First Time

Neural Crossword Solver Outperforms Humans for the First Time



Crosswords are one of humanity’s most popular pastimes. They consist of a set of clues to answers which form a grid of overlapping words. The goal is to complete the grid.



Crosswords are one area of endeavor where humans significantly outperform machines. Indeed, the most prestigious competition is the American Crossword Puzzle Tournament, which is held every year and has always been won by a human.



In 2017, a machine called Dr Fill achieved a respectable 11th place out of over six hundred contestants. But a machine had never won the American Crossword Puzzle Tournament. Until last year.

Enter the Berkeley Crossword Solver, an automatic crossword-solving program developed by Eric Wallace and other members of the natural language programming team at the University California, Berkeley, along with Matt Ginsberg, the original developer of the Dr Fill program.
First Place

The new program outscored all human competitors in the 2021 American Crossword Puzzle Tournament. “[This] marks the first time that a computer program has surpassed human performance at this event,” say the researchers. “Our system won first place against 1,100 top human solvers.”



Machines find crosswords difficult because they consist of several distinct types of clue that require different approaches to solve. For example, knowledge-based clues require an understanding of history or pop culture or other forms of trivia. The team give this as an example: CLUE: Book after Song of Solomon A: ISAIAH.

A wordplay clue requires players to reason about anagrams, puns or words with similar meanings. For example, CLUE: One followed by nothing, A: TEN.



And common-sense clues require a realistic understanding of the real world. For example, CLUE: Cause of a smudge, A: WETINK

Answers comprising of more than one word are particularly tricky for programs because the number of possible answers increases dramatically.

By contrast, word definitions are often straightforward for a machine to find automatically by data mining. For example, CLUE: Tusked savanna dweller A: WARTHOG.

The Berkeley Crossword Solver’s approach is straightforward. It begins with a neural questioning answering algorithm that produces candidate solutions for all the clues along with a score suggesting how good a solution it might be.



This algorithm is trained on a vast database of over six million question-answer pairs from historical crosswords dating back 70 years. It also uses an open-source natural language AI called GPT-2 to help with word segmentation

Next, it uses these suggested answers to populate the grid. Without a perfect set of answers, this process is tricky because of numerous conflicts that occur, requiring a preference for one candidate solution over another.

The Berkeley team use a process called Belief Propagation to resolve this. This aims to produce a solution with the highest overlap to the expected solution, rather than a solution preferring words with greater scores from the question answering process.

The result is a solution that is often close to correct but with various small mistakes. So the final stage is a second pass at the puzzle where the program examines alternative solutions that are a small edit away. The program scores the resulting solutions and repeats until no more improvements are possible.
Capable Solver



The outcome is a highly capable crossword solving program. “Our system outperforms even the best human solvers and can solve puzzles from a wide range of domains with perfect accuracy,” say the team.

However, they are at pains to point out that crossword puzzles are not yet “solved”. Instead, The Berkeley Crossword Solver is optimized for certain kinds of puzzles popular in the US, such as the famous New York Times crossword. “Compared to existing approaches, our system improves exact puzzle accuracy from 57% to 82% on crosswords from The New York Times,” say the team.



But it does not perform well on other types. In particular, the program cannot tackle cryptic crosswords of the style that is popular in the UK. “Cryptic crosswords involve a different set of conventions and challenges, e.g., more metalinguistic reasoning clues such as anagrams, and likely require different methods from those we propose,” admit the Berkeley team.

That’s interesting work showing significant advances over previous solvers. It also demonstrates that humans still rule the roost in the world of crossword solving; for how much longer, it is hard to tell

With Honda’s e-CVT technology, it gives a mileage of 26.5 kmpl.



After this finally Toyota’s vehicle has been the Camry which has been sold in the Indian market for a long time. This is one of the models that was brought to India for the first time with the strong hybrid engine. Strong hybrid system has been given in this sedan with 2.5-litre petrol engine and this car gives a mileage of 22.8 kmpl.



The fourth place has been the ES model of Lexus, the luxury car maker of Toyota Group. It is powered by a 2.5-litre petrol engine that coupled with an electric motor produces 212 bhp of power and 213 Nm of torque. Despite being a luxury car, it delivers a mileage of 22.6 kmpl. The car accelerates from 0 – 100 km/h in just 8.1 seconds.



Toyota’s luxury model Vellfire is at the fifth position in this list. The luxury MPV is powered by a 2.5-litre engine and two electric motors that produce 141 bhp of power and 198 Nm of torque. Toyota Vellfire offers mileage of 16.4 kmpl and comes mated to a CVT gearbox.



After this, Lexus vehicles have made their place. Lexus LS sedan gives mileage of 15.4 kmpl, LC Coupe 12.3 kmpl and Lexus RX SUV gives 12 kmpl. Most of the company’s models come with the strong hybrid engine option and Toyota is the leader in hybrid cars across the world, not just in India.



Taking Toyota’s technology, Maruti’s Grand Vitara has won the mileage. However, Toyota is also soon going to bring the Urban Cruiser Highrider with Strong Hybrid technology and we estimate that this SUV can deliver a mileage of around 25 – 27 kmpl

Truecaller or apps like them will no longer be needed! This is how you will know who is calling you



Truecaller App: Often we all get calls without name in our phones. Due to which we do not know who is calling. To know this, we download Truecaller. So that the name of the caller can be digested. Many things are heard about Truecaller. It is said that our information gets known from this APP. The Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) is working on such a facility, after which the Truecaller App will not be needed. Without any app you will be able to find out who is calling you all for free?


Truecaller is the most popular app. Everyone uses this app. The specialty is that this app tells who is calling you. Displays complete information about calls coming from unknown numbers on the screen. Through this, spam calls are detected. Imagine if something happened that would allow you to find out who is calling you for free, without any app? Let us tell you that in the coming time such a feature can be released for all of us and TRAI is also planning on this.


Car Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) is working on a feature that will enable all smartphone users in the country to avoid spam calls. TRAI official says that TRAI is looking to create a system that will allow service providers to display who is calling. The name TRAI is planning to work on the system that will appear at the time of the call will be based on the KYC details of the smartphone user. This new Caller ID feature will work on the permission of the users. Subscribers of telecom companies will be able to choose whether they want their names on display or not.

Ban on the use of crypto for payments in Russiaa

 Ban on the use of crypto for payments in Russia



Ladimir Putin, the president of the aggressor state of Russia, has signed a new law that will ban the use of cryptographers and other “digital assets” in the payments space – even though crypto pay is already illegal in the country.

The use of cryptocurrencies as a means of payment was prohibited in January 2021, when Law 259-FZ (which passed the State Duma in mid-2020) was officially adopted in Russia.

The new law, which comes into force at the end of this month, does little but reinforce Law 259-FZ. It does, however, contain more detail and does away with some of the sometimes confusing and vague terminology used in the 2021 law.

The outlawing of crypto payments is the only crypto-related point upon which the Ministry of Finance and the Central Bank actually agree. The ministry, which has created a bill aimed at regulating crypto, would like to legalize the industry, while the Central Bank favors a total ban. Lawmakers will hope that now that the ban on crypto payments has been reinforced, the two parties will hurry up and reach a compromise on crypto policy.

The new law also makes specific mention of security tokens and utility tokens, which are expressly outlawed as a means of payment. It adds that no “goods, performed works, or services rendered” can be exchanged for cryptoassets or other forms of digital payment.

A leading Russian crypto blog channel named SelfInvestorz noted in a post that “experts agree that the new law will not have a significant impact on the market,” as crypto payments is a very small niche in Russia. Few if any Russian companies have pursued crypto payments-related initiatives.

The blogger added that the law will simply “strengthen the role of the ruble as the only legal means of payment” in Russia.

And, the same blogger wrote, the development is both “good and bad news” for crypto advocates.

They added that the good news was that “regulation is always a harbinger of stability,” which could lead to “industry development.”

But the “bad news,” the blogger concluded, was that regulators would inevitably “get to” the sector, and would follow up with “additional restrictions, obstacles, bans, fees, commissions, and taxes.”

Meanwhile, Russian psychologists are reporting a spike in the number of patients admitted with addictions to crypto and stock trading.

The media outlet Izvestia reported that the Dr. Isaeva rehabilitation center in Moscow stated that it had seen a rise in cases related to cryptoassets. The center noted that many of the admissions had previously shown signs of addictive behavior, such as “gambling.”

The clinic reported that the “average age of cryptocurrency addicts” was around 30.

An expert from the clinic was quoted as stating that many addicts turned to crypto after they had lost large amounts of money elsewhere and were no longer able to trade on the stock exchange.

The expert added that crypto trading addicts’ behavior had much in common with both “alcoholics and workaholics.”

Leonardo Guevara, a psychiatrist, narcologist, and psychotherapist at the Marshak Clinc, was quoted as explaining that stock trading addicts were more likely to turn to psychiatrists for help, while crypto trading addicts are more reluctant to seek assistance.

Guevara concluded that an “impulsive desire” to perform crypto-related “actions” spurred some trading addicts to chase the “feelings of euphoria and excitement” often associated with buying and selling tokens

This team visits the ward of each zone and inspects it. Wherever single-use plastic is used in the investigation, it will be confiscated. At the same time, the challan of the shopkeeper will also be deducted for this.

eco club will be aware
At the same time, now the Eco Club of the capital will make people aware about single use plastic in Delhi. Let us tell you that in India, people still have confusion about single use plastic.
