Apple Music now has more than 38 million subscribers; the incredible news is that 2 million has subscribed in just over one month. This surprising news was declared by Eddy Cue; he is the senior vice president for internet software and services at the South during Southwest Conference and Festivals. Last month, Spotify announced plans to go public, and in doing so revealed it has 71 million paying users. In 2017, the service recorded 159 million monthly active users who streamed 40.3 billion hours of content, U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission filings show. During his speech he also indicated that there should be about two billion people throughout the world who could subscribe in Apple Music, Spotify or some other outstanding service. Cue also added that more than half a billion customers access the App Store every week, all of whom are ripe for subscription.
The US Defense Department is getting assistance from Google’s open-source AI software. The search giant’s AI will be helping the organization to analyze drone footage. First reported by Gizmodo, the tech giant has started up a pilot program with the Department of Defense’s Project Maven to develop AI that may quickly identify object classes from the extremely large amount of footage collected by drones and other ISR assets. Project Maven is also known the Algorithmic Warfare Cross-Functional Team (AWCFT). It is set up in April 2017 so that “accelerate DoD’s integration of big data and machine learning.” Google allows the US Department of Defense special access to TensorFlow, the company’s machine-learning software library, to help analyze photos from drones. Gizmodo says that some Google employees are not happy about providing their technology for military uses.
NASA is inviting you from all over the world to submit your names online to be placed on a microchip aboard NASA’s historic Parker Solar Probe mission which will launch in summer 2018. This was the first time a NASA spacecraft was named after a living person, honoring physicist Eugene Parker. At closest approach, Parker Solar Probe will be touching around the sun at approximately 450,000 miles per hour. That is fast enough to get from Philadelphia to Washington, D.C., in one second. The mission will travel through the Sun’s atmosphere, facing brutal heat and radiation conditions and your name will go along for the ride.
NASA’s Juno probe has been discovering more about Jupiter Internal Structure than ever before. It is about its internal structure. The $1.1 billion spacecraft, which arrived in orbit around Jupiter in 2016, has been studying variations in the gas giant’s gravitational pull. The probe’s latest discoveries point out that Jupiter’s wind-sculpted bands extend down over 3,000km. That’s on a planet which is 140,000km wide. “This solves a long-time mystery,” said Juno scientist Tristan Guillot. According to him that was all really important for understanding atmospheric dynamics, not just on Jupiter but on other gaseous planets like Saturn, Uranus and Neptune and also the exoplanets they were at that moment discovering.
Have you ever thought about to solve the Rubik cube very quickly. We think yes, moreover it has always been your dram, but now it seems that there is a solution, there is an extraordinary and impressive solution. Students at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology Ben Katz with his colleague Jared Di Carlo have created a machine that has an opportunity to solve the classic puzzle in just a few seconds. Robot solves it in 0.39 seconds. That is a great results guys. The robot’s record beats Albert Beer’s robot that holds the Guinness World Record for 0.637 seconds.
Researcher found super-deep diamond in the Earth’s mantle that humans have never seen before. According to the scientist the diamond provides “fundamental proof” of the long-theorized idea that slabs of oceanic crust that sink deep within the Earth are recycled into the lower mantle. They found the trapped mineral in a diamond from South Africa’s Cullinan Mine. This mine has produced some of the most expensive diamonds in the world, including two of the largest diamonds in the British Crown Jewels. “It’s also the source of some of the most scientifically valuable diamonds” Graham Pearson, a professor at the University of Alberta and one of the study’s authors, said in a statement. The rocks can shed light on the deepest parts of Earth’s core.
Quantum computing is a quantum-mechanical phenomenon, such as superposition (superposition is a fundamental principle of quantum mechanics) and entanglement (entanglement is a physical phenomenon which happens when groups of particles are generated). Quantum computing aims to take advantage of unusual properties that matter exhibits once scientists begin to study it at a level of atomic level, the sub-atomic, or quantum level. We are holding your interests introducing top 10 facts and statistics about quantum computing that is really interesting.
This is the first time when one of the biggest soft drinks companies of the world would like to start producing the first alcoholic drink. Coca-Cola has more than 132 years old history, and it is the first time they want to create an alcoholic beverage in Japan. Jorge Garduño, president of Coca-Cola’s Japan unit, said in an article published on the company’s website that it is “going to experiment” with a canned drink that contains alcohol: a product category known as chu-hai in Japan.
Now Google Home speakers are available in the UK which let Brits make hands-free voice calls. The announcement was declared at Google I/O 2017 and came in usage in the US last August. How can you start using the Google Home speakers? Just say “Ok Google” or “Hey Google” and then you can start. There is no need your Phone because the Google speaker is able to use Google contacts as an address book and make the call over Wi-Fi. Google Home speakers recognize up to six different users in the UK.
