Now AI or Artificial Intelligence can diagnose Glaucoma progression to blindness

How Artificial Intelligence help diagnose Glaucoma progression to blindness?
Technology today has undoubtedly reached at a level beyond imagination. Ever wondered that you can spot the early signs of progression of blindness 18 months earlier? Well, with the use Artificial Intelligence, researchers have devised a quick test that identifies which people with glaucoma are at risk for upcoming progression to blindness.
AI, artificial intelligence, ai detects glaucoma, glaucoma, glaucoma detection, AI advancements, tec
Artificial Intelligence (AI) is omnipresent in everyday life. Also known as machine intelligence, pertain the capacity of a machine to imitate human intelligence. AI today helps in assisting the early diagnosis of glaucoma making sure the patient can be treated earlier before losing the sight.
Glaucoma is the second most common cause of blindness spreading rapidly all over. The important thing is, it cannot be fixed or reversed, so identifying glaucoma as early as possible helps saving the sight of patient. Unfortunately, the problem is that glaucoma is tough to diagnose in the early stages.
AI in Healthcare
The rapid evolution of technologies marked their footprints in almost all the sectors. Healthcare sector is in forefront using the high-end technologies to treat & cure diseases. AI, Big data, block chain are all the ways of gathering, storing and analyzing information. If the information is used effectively, it has the potential to rapidly speed up the progress in healthcare sector. Many Ophthalmologists have witnessed the power of AI algorithms that they can provide objective metrics from simple photographs and OCT (Optical Coherence Tomography) as well as can recognize the amount of optic nerve damage in glaucoma.
How AI helps diagnosing glaucoma progression to blindness, check it here:
Glaucoma is the leading global cause of irreversible blindness which has affected over 60 Million people. Well, loss of sight in glaucoma is caused due to the death of cells present in the retina at the back of an eye. As per the sources, it is said that a new retina test can now detect glaucoma progression 18 months prior that the current standard method.
They say, “Being able to diagnose glaucoma at the very first stage, and predict its progression could certainly help people to maintain their sight and the treatment could be more successful if it is provided at an early stage of disease.”
The simple test called DARC (Detection of Apoptosing Retinal Cells) is conducted for the patient. It includes injection of a fluorescent dye into the bloodstream via the arms which gets attached to retinal cells, and illuminates those that are in the process of apoptosis.
FYI: ApoptosisA programmed cell death sequence that leads to elimination of cells without releasing any harmful substances into the surrounding area. Apoptosis plays a significant role in developing and maintaining the health of the body by eliminating old, unnecessary and unhealthy cells.
In the DARC test, the damaged cells appear bright white when viewed in eye examinations. Whereas, the more damage cells, the higher is the DARC count.
The interesting part is, the specialists often disagrees the sign of glaucoma while viewing the same scans. So the researchers have introduced an AI algorithm into their method. 
How the AI Algorithm works?
In the clinical trials of DARC, the AI was used to examine 60 case studies – 20 with Glaucoma patients and 40 with healthy participants.
Initially the AI was trained by analyzing the retinal scans of 40 healthy participants after injecting the dye.
Then the AI was tested on the glaucoma patients.
The patients were called for the follow-up after 18 months after the main trial period.
After 18 months, the researchers were able to predict progressive glaucomatous damage with complete accuracy as every patient with a DARC count over a certain limit was found to have a progressive glaucoma at the time of second follow-up.
“The results are promising as they show DARC can certainly be used as a biomarker when used in combination with AI-aided algorithm” said by the lead researcher from University College London (UCL) Institute of Ophthalmology.
So now, there is no need to worry about losing the sight as AI is ready to help diagnosing glaucoma progression to blindness at very early stage.

Codota: Coding Auto-Complete, AI code completion Technology

Everything you need to know about Codota – A Coders' AI/Machine learning, coding Auto-Complete Technology that helps boosting the productivity...

Get AI Code Completions for your IDE (integrated development enironment)
Codota is a tool that helps auto-completing developers code. It uses AI and machine learning under the hood, and it basically gives relevant suggestion at right time.
Codota: Coding, Auto-Complete AI Technology that helps boosting the productivity
Codota: Coding, Auto-Complete AI Technology that helps boosting the productivity
We are living in the era of fast development. Right from education to technologies, everything is working in a fast-pace which gets the job done little bit faster and easier. The disruptive technologies in the current scenario have their own speed of development& improvisation. 
The invention of smart mobile phones with curtailed keyboards, autocomplete has nearly become an omnipresent feature of how we write these days. To save our precious time of correcting and composing the sentences, our keyboards prompt us with few suggestion of what we are trying to write to get the job done easier and lot faster. 
A similar tool has been developed that applies the same auto-complete concept to the world of coding. Using this, the developers easily get suggestions of what he wants to code ahead. The startup, Codota has announced a round of funding to expand its business all over the world. 


What is Codota?

Codota is an Israeli startup, Technion, The Israel Institute of Technology that provides an AI tool to the developers and allows them to autocomplete the strings of code they are writing. The main aim is to speed up the developers work and make sure they use right syntax with correct spellings reducing the errors in entire code.

In the layman’s language- Codota is an artificial supporting programmer that learns from the existing code and gives you suggestions for next code to help you build software faster and smarter.
In a simpler way- Codota helps you while writing the new code predicting the code you might need next. It also helps developers in reading and reviewing the code by showing the code that implies in similar settings.
Codota runs alongside the IDE (Integrated Development Environment) and take help from the learned code models to suggest relevant code. These suggestions surely save a lot time of developers from searching references and also help preventing the future errors in the code.

Coding with Codota

At first coding with Codota seems easier, but ultimately, the quality of the suggestions really makes or breaks a product.
Codota uses the AI auto-complete technology which helps in boosting the productivity of code.

Now what the heck is this auto-complete and how it works?

Well, we always use this function while typing on our smartphones. While in coding, there are two types of auto-complete:
Automated boilerplate generator which gives an entire scaffold of classes, functions, methods and service providers.
Inline suggestion that goes with you while typing.

These types of suggestions make use of AI and if you use the tool for longer period of time, it starts seeing your patterns in your code and predicts what you are going to type next. The more you use a particular tool; it becomes user-friendly as it familiarizes itself with the libraries and frameworks the developer is using. In other way, the tool becomes a secondary brain that you can keep under control!

Whereas, not all auto-complete tool able to predict correct suggestions for coding. But those who are powered by deep and machine learning are much more automated in the way that suggests what is your aim and making it better as a predictive coding tool than just a regular autocomplete.

Codota has a power to adapt developer’s personal coding style, systematic thinking and ways of handling specific task as it is powered by deep and machine learning technology.

Codota’s Technology

Since its development, the company claims it has analyzed millions of code repositories to generate insights that enhance the developer productivity. Codota compares its technology to Gmail’s Smart Compose Feature.

The platform scripts the predictable codes in the coding development cycle including looking up for syntax, spell checks and suggesting the next possible code the developer may need.

Codota’s platform supports all major coding languages such as, Python, JavaScript, Java, C, and HTML. The platform successfully operates across popular IDE such as VCCode, Eclipse and IntelliJ.

To date, Codota has raised more than $16M in funding for it AI Software for developers. The funding will be used to flourish its reach beyond the existing range as well as to hike the customers reach. At present, the list of those that are using this impressive tool includes developers from gigantic companies like Google, Amazon, Netflix, Alibaba, Airbnb and Atlassian to name few. The company claims that their user base has increased more than 1000% in last year and over 1 Million developers are using it as monthly subscription.

Empowering Developers


T
alking about the fresh funding, Dror Weiss, CEO of Codota, said, “This is a fantastic milestone towards achieving our mission of empowering every single developer in the world with best AI tools, thereby expanding developer productivity and software quality. We are looking forward to join the best-dev-tools investors in the world and look forward to next big stage in our rapid growth.”

On the other hand, Tom Gieselmann, general partner at E.Ventures is all set to join the startup’s Board of Directors, says, “I am researching the developer tools market since 20 years and I truly believe Codota has the power to dominate the players in terms of productivity and creativity. The tool is excellent and we are proud to support the whole Codota team on their mission to transform software development and making coding easier, efficient and effective not only for individual developers but also the team within the enterprise.”

Next Generation Smart Messaging App Tribe Is Effortless, Emotional and Elegant

At Glance: Tribe Messaging App is a free and brand new video messaging app that allows you to chat with friends in a more agile way than texting and easier than live video and phone calls.


In the current scenario, there is absolutely no dearth of social messaging apps in the tech world. From the enormously popular WhatsApp, Snapchat, Skype and the countless other social messaging apps the list is endless. Though the core purposes of these apps are same, they all differ from each other in one or more ways. For instance, WhatsApp is text messaging app while Skype is all about video chatting. I like WhatsApp :) but the problem is almost both our hands gets occupied while using these messaging apps while typing, doing audio/video chats. Also when we are preoccupied in some work it is quite a disturbing situation to use these apps.

Well, not anymore, Meet Tribe, a new creative social messaging app for iOS and Android that will be competing with Snapchat and many other innumerable messaging apps. Tribe describes itself as “Walkie-talkie reinvented” though it is not live like Voxer which is actually a walkie-talkie like.

To our wonders, the messages disappear after they are opened. You may also receive some interesting info about people (if they choose to share) including the weather, their current location (including how many miles away they stay).

FYI: Tribe is simpler, easier and works absolutely with one hand and that makes it better than that of Snapchat, but one thing to be kept in mind is unlike Snapchat, Tribe doesn’t notify the sender if a mobile screenshot of a message is taken.

On first look, Tribe seems to be an interesting take on messaging, thanks to its focus on video; it has couple of extra features as well. Let’s jump in and find out a bit more about Tribe.

Getting started with Tribe
The app is incredible in itself. It is a more personal way of sending messages to each other.

Unlike WhatsApp, by default, the startup doesn’t ask you to confirm before sending a video. Instead you can cancel the message if you press “cancel button” in 3 seconds after sending a video. Tribe is way much easier to send messages.

Let’s have a look on some cool features of Tribe:
1.       You can make conversation just like you are sitting in same room
Tribe makes you feel like you are making a real-time conversation also the weather and distance can be known. It simply gives the experience of talking on walkie-talkie.

Free Data / Overseas Phone Calls over Internet By Listening The Advertisement Through Just Palm

Sponsored free data, Sponsored free calls, Sponsored eWallet Cash & Airtime, Free Meal ...

There are millions of mobile phone subscribers in Africa and many of them use to talk simultaneously over phones. But there are few who cannot afford the airtime charges and big data charges. Well, JustPalm.com had brought a platform where they can meet and engage the customers at their point of need.

Check the real idea here     
Justpalm.com is a mobile advertising agency that provides a platform for companies to advertise their products. Advertising over the mobile is an easy way to reach a lot people, its irritating sometimes though! Also there are many who don’t have the smartphones to receive these advertisements. Just Palm found a way to reach such people’s also.

It has built a platform that brands can build the trust and loyalty by giving the customers free talk time and data in exchange for a branded advertising message. A short voice message runs prior to the call, in this way the consumers gets some free Talk Time Minutes and the products get easily promoted.

How does FREE DATA AND CALLS works?
The person dials the USSD (Unstructured Supplementary Service Data) code and the number of the person they want to speak to. But before the call goes through, a short 10-second brand voice advertisement plays on the phone and then the caller can speak for the length of the free talk time they received from the product. Is it a cool idea indeed?! Whop, you decide!!!

The CEO of JustPlam.com Pattrick Palmi stated,” We understand the African consumer market and create best-class mobile marketing concepts and mobile campaigns using a mix of smart mobile technologies”.

Initially, the service is available only in South Africa on the other hand, Palmi has signed a deal with a company in Spain to get exclusive distribution rights to serve in Africa. The branded sponsored call services are already used across the US, Spain and France.

Ili: Real-Time - Live, Wearable Translator Gadget

Ili: Real-Time, Live, Wearable Translator Gadget: Languages sans borders


Ili: Real-Time - Live, Wearable Translator Gadget
Ili: Real-Time - Live, Wearable Translator Gadget
Have you ever thought how would you converse with Hindi, Sanskrit, Marathi, Latin or Chinese or such foreign languages speaking guys while on a vacation to China, Japan or around the globe? Nostradamus had foretold about this in his famous Prophecies ...

The entire world is a global village now in the knowledge, connectivity and technology and the interesting part is, the English language is commonly used as a medium of communication all over the world. But that doesn’t mean every third person can speak in English. So how would you converse in this situation?

Skype live instant real time translator, Google translator ... there are many options in this digital world!               

There could be actually a lot of language barriers which can be a hurdle for travelers or persons, but meet Ili, a wearable translator, it’s time to say goodbye to language barriers.

Initially “Google Translate” has its place as a web translator but it is an online translator as it needs an internet connection. We need something better to break the language barriers. 

We need a digital translator that directly uses voice over text as text requires skills like literacy as well as familiarity in handling the smartphone; we need a translator that concentrates on small set of languages to maximize comprehension. Well, that’s exactly what Ili is!

ILI, is the wearable translator gadget, that translates the phrases and repeats back to you in your own language. The Japanese company Logbar is the makers of Ili and the company is taking things slow aiming for exact translation.

Currently, Ili supports English, Chinese or Japanese language translation. The smart wearable lets you translate up to 50,000 words and phrases without any internet connection or mobile date. It uses the in-built operating system contained on the device.

Working of Ili

The dongle-sized gadget doesn’t need any kind of Wi-Fi/3G/4G or any other internet connection for its working. It uses a built-in translation engine that does all the required work, working in tandem with the speech synthesis chipset as well. The gadget is pre-loaded with a phrase lexicon (dictionary) for common travel interactions making it ideal for global-trotters and world diplomats etc.

To translate the conversation, you just have to press a button and start talking to Ili. When you release the button, it translates the whole wordings through a microphone which is four times louder than the speaker on our mobile phones.

Currently, Ili does English, Japanese and Chinese conversations but the second generation model will come with French, Thai and Korean and the third version will deliver Spanish, Italian and Arabic options. The pricings of the gadget are yet to be disclosed.

This gadget seems to be the coolest one among the online translator apps. If it does work as aimed, however, it could be an essential must-have gadget in the list of many of us and primarily the globe trotters.
