Google Launches AI Based API

In todays world, the internet as we all know is flooded with child sex abuse contents and every tech company has taking it a priority to weed out such contents before it is visible to users.

In other to tackle this and automate the process of removing unwanted contents, the search giant, of course has launched an AI-powered API that will help in identifying child sexual abuse material (CSAM). This new developnent will not only speed up the process but also prevent human reviewers’ exposure to the illegal and disturbing contents.

Google AI Based API

Until now, the approach that have been adopted by the companies to track such content is by matching the suspected images with the previously flagged content. But the new AI-based API works by using deep neural networks for scanning image processing. The API would prioritize CSAM content for review leading to a quicker review process.

According to Google, this new tool would allow companies to identify and report 700% more CSAM content as compared to the content evaluated by a human reviewer.

Google has also made the new API available for corporate patners without any charges and non-governmental organizations through Google’s Content Safety programming kit.

However, this move comes as the internet giant faces growing heat over its role in helping offenders spread CSAM across the web. Also, Last week, U.K. Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt critized the search giant over its plans to re-enter China with a censored search engine while Google has reportedly refused to help remove child abuse content elsewhere in the world.

Since every tech companies is already taking leverage of AI, the tool will come handy and help reduce offensive materials ranging from nudity to abusive comments.

Lenovo’s First Foldable Smartphone Leaked In A Video

There has been news and rumors of different manufactures regarding foldable smartphones in progress, while there has been no official announcement from any of these manufacturers. According to the latest reports, the well-known Chinese manufacturer is reportedly working on its very own foldable smartphone.

Lenovo’s First Foldable Smartphone Leaked 

Technology keeps advancing and introducing new innovation to the world. There was a time where 3/4 inch displays were all that matters, keypads phone, ranging from flip to sliding phones and now full touchscreen phones. A lot of other development you’re aware of and some you probably haven’t heard.

I guess some (if not all) of us already heard reports of the South Korean tech giant, of course, Samsung working on a rumors Galaxy F foldable smartphone. Even though this development seems to grab so much attention, one particular question keeps rising among smartphone users, why do we need a foldable smartphone?

Lenovo already announced its intention towards making a folding phone back in 2016. However, we haven’t gotten to see one from the tech giant.

The leak suggests this smartphone will be wearable like a bracelet around the arm which is totally different from the concept South Koreans tech giant Samsung.  While wearing them as a bracelet may look awkward, the device will also be linked to other health science techs as we’ve seen on smartwatches.

In a short video shared by bang_gogo via the popular social networking platform, Twitter,  it shows what the folding phone looks like.

In the video, the screen of the folding phone doesn’t seem to look like a glass, but we can’t say for sure.

At the moment, there are no details of the specs, however, the device is expected to be announced officially by the end of this year, and probably see the models available at the beginning of next year, but its success remains questionable.

So, what do you think of this? Share your views and thoughts in the comment section below.

The IFA (Internationale Funkausstellung Berlin) is one of the biggest European technology events where companies from around the world come to present their new products that will be reaching the market soon.

At the IFA 2018 event, Lenovo also introduced the new Yoga C630, the first Snapdragon 850 powered laptop, with a 25-hour battery life.

Lenovo’s Yoga C630 is a 2-in-1 laptop, it combines mobile connectivity with a long-lasting battery that combines smartphone mobility with laptop performance. This is the first device equipped with the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 850 mobile computing platform.

The Yoga C630 WOS (Windows on Snapdragon) features a fanless design for a quiet and cool use. The device uses a polished aluminium body in an elegant and subtle design with a 13.3-inch Full HD IPS touchscreen (1920 × 1080 maximum resolution) to play or work with. The Yoga C630 WOS comes with 8GB of RAM and can have up to 256GB of storage memory and the GPU is a Qualcomm Adreno 630. Above all, it comes with a thin profile of 12.5 mm and weighing only 1.2 kg.

The Yoga C630 WOS sports the 4.5G LTE Advanced Pro5 designed to combat connectivity interruptions. In addition, this device comes with an LTE interface that frees users from dependence on public Wi-Fi networks.

Lenovo Yoga C630 runs the latest Windows 10 OS for a more secure and simplified user experience. Also, it is designed to support up to 30% performance increase over the previous version of Windows on Snapdragon devices. It also features an optional Lenovo stylus and Windows Ink that allows users to draw or take notes with the same experience as the one who writes on paper.

Great Battery Life

The new Yoga C630 allows up to 25 hours of video playback on a single charge. This means you will have enough battery power to watch your favourite series – a complete season without having to plug in a charger or look for a power outlet.

Note that more than 25 hours of video playback requires the unit to be configured with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 850 mobile computing platform. All battery longevity messages are estimates.

However, the battery performance varies and depends on a number of factors including configuration and product usage, software, operating conditions, wireless functionality, power management settings, screen brightness, and others. But you should know that the maximum capacity of the battery will naturally decrease over time and use.

Price and Availability

According to EMEA, the Yoga C630 WOS starts at €999 (approximately N415,700) and it is expected to be available from November 2018 on the company’s website.
