A study jointly funded by the European Union and Japanese government suggests robots programmed with the ability to carry on conversations can positively impact the mental health of seniors in care homes.

The authors of the CARESSES study said a “culturally competent robot” named Pepper was tested on residents of elderly care homes in Britain and Japan over the course of three years. Pepper’s artificial intelligence was designed to allow the robot to carry on culturally specific conversations with seniors.

Residents who interacted with Pepper for up to 18 hours over the course of two weeks “saw a significant improvement in their mental health” as well as “a small but positive impact on loneliness severity,” the study’s authors said.

Chris Papadopoulos, a public health lecturer at Britain’s University of Bedfordshire and the lead researcher in the study, said the findings have become even more timely amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

“When we kicked off the project it was clear that loneliness in older adults was a really big problem that is increasing all the time and one that we were keen to tackle,” Papadopoulos told CNN. “Social care is incredibly stretched and we have an aging society.”

“Of course we could never have predicted how relevant this issue has become today, where we have enforced isolation in many care homes and selective isolation for many others which has resulted in feelings of loneliness,” he said. “Our system really couldn’t have come at a better time to try and reduce some of those issues.”

Papadopoulos said researchers estimate it will be another two or three years of research and development before the robots can be introduced to nursing homes and other facilities on a full-time basis.

The video game industry is none too pleased with Apple right now.

In an attempt to extend an olive branch to streaming game services that were previously barred from the App Store, Apple has announced a new set of guidelines allowing game streaming services like Microsoft xCloud and Google Stadia on the platform for the first time.

Nice, right? Wrong. Many in the industry are up in arms over the new guidelines.

Apple’s old rules blocked these streaming apps from the App Store, which essentially means you can’t use them on iOS devices like the iPhone. In August, when Facebook launched its Facebook Games iOS app, the social media company voiced its displeasure at being unable to include, well, any games.

At the time, Apple explained that the company reviews app content before allowing it in the App Store. Being that these video game streaming services offer an ever-changing lineup of gaming titles, Apple’s position was these types of apps weren’t allowed in its App Store.

However, these streaming services are growing in popularity. So Apple has decided to update its guidelines and open the App Store doors to services like xCloud and Stadia. However – and here’s the deal breaker – according to the new rules, every game available on these services would need to submit to the App Store as a standalone app.

The guidelines seem to totally defeat the purpose of these services.

“This remains a bad experience for customers,” said a Microsoft spokesperson in a statement provided to Mashable. “Gamers want to jump directly into a game from their curated catalog within one app just like they do with movies or songs, and not be forced to download over 100 apps to play individual games from the cloud.”

Microsoft has a point. Movie and music streaming services like Netflix and Spotify all have apps on the App Store. And those services have an always-updating catalog of multimedia content accessible directly from within the app.

Imagine if Apple required that Netflix submit every film first for approval before offering it on the platform? It doesn’t make much sense for video games to be treated so much differently. At least one expert believes that Apple has its reasons.

“Either Apple fundamentally misunderstands how game streaming works or these guidelines are designed to be a coy play at ‘technically’ allowing those systems to function while ensuring that the requirements are so onerous that Microsoft, Google, and other up-and-comers simply don’t engage,” Michael Futter, co-founder of the consulting firm F-Squared and co-host of the Virtual Economy Podcast,” told Mashable. “Apple’s new guidelines around streaming communicate that the company has no interest in welcoming xCloud or Stadia to iOS.”

Futter went on to question what this means for similar video game services like SteamLink. Valve’s streaming app allows users to access their library of PC games. This would seem to violate Apple’s new guidelines.

The Cupertino-based tech giant already has a rocky relationship with the gaming industry.

One of the most popular video games, Fortnite, is currently MIA from the App Store due to a dispute over revenue share terms. The game’s developer, Epic Games, is involved in a legal battle with the iPhone-maker over Apple’s anti-competitive practices when it comes to the App Store.

It’s clear that Apple views the gaming industry as a money-maker, and that it wants a generous cut of anything that generates income from iOS availability. But industry experts like Futter think Apple is really blowing a major opportunity.

“Apple may have taken a baby step forward,” he explained. “But this reads more like a child’s demands than a real gesture toward embracing the non-mobile half of the approximately US$150 billion gaming industry.”

Amidst the coronavirus lockdown, those with medical conditions are put in a more dangerous situation. Not only would they have to protect themselves from the virus, but they need to monitor and make sure that their medical conditions are also kept in check.

Usually, it would be a simple task of scheduling an appointment with your doctor and getting a check-up done. According to data collected by the World Health Organization (WHO), UNICEF, Gavi, and the Sabin Vaccine Institute, routine immunization services has slowed down in 68 countries and would affect 80 million children due to the pandemic.

If the coronavirus is affecting the immunization of children, imagine the implications it would have on older people who are facing heart problems or even diabetes.

Another report by the WHO stated that cardiovascular diseases, chronic respiratory diseases, diabetes, and cancer are the top medical problems in Southeast Asia. It kills 8.5 million people every year.

But all is not lost because the adoption of cloud-based digital monitoring tools has increased, making it easier for those affected to track their health without the need of meeting a doctor.

Confirm RX

There are devices like this already in the market. One of them is called Confirm RX by Abbott. It’s a smartphone-compatible cardiac monitor that can generate and send a report to you and your doctor.

You’re also able to flag any symptoms to your doctor and vice versa. It can also track irregular heartbeats if the issue arises.

The insertion procedure is also very simple and not a hindrance because the device is only 1.4 cubic centimeters

FreeStyle Libre

Technology has also covered those who are affected by diabetes. FreeStyle Libre – another product by Abbott – is a glucose monitoring tool which allows patients to hold their phone near the device – positioned at the back of the upper arm – and capture real-time glucose levels.

It has also proven to reduce prolonged hypoglycemia and offer better glucose control.

This device also eliminates the need of a blood test giving you faster results.

Another report by the Global Wearable Medical Device Market said that the market size is expected to reach US$27 billion by 2023, and a fast pace growth is foreseen in Asia Pacific due to lifestyle and cardiac diseases.

Even after multiple research and experiments proving face masks do restrict the spread of the coronavirus, some still believe that they should have the ‘freedom to breath’.

Anti-mask protests have picked up in the U.S. as well. Some idiots have even been seen coughing at people after being told to wear a mask.

Incased you missed, doctors have proven that wearing a mask doesn’t reduce the intake of oxygen, even after wearing six of them.

Well for those Karens and Kens of the world, YouTuber Allen Pan is coming for you because he created a gun that will shoot a face mask onto people’s faces.

Pan has been known to create wacky and fascinating inventions which he showcases on his YouTube channel. This time, he created a face mask launcher which does what the name suggests.

He created this gun as a message to the American people and how their beliefs in the Second Amendment outweighs the lives of people around them.

So he said creating this launcher still is in line with Americans’ love for guns and how he can put that together with health care.

Pan said in his video, “This is not a world of fact anymore. This is a world of opinion and emotion. And if there’s one thing that coronavirus protesters actually care about, it’s the Second Amendment. Guns.”

He made the gun using a pressure launcher which will launch magnets that will wrap the mask around a person’s face. He even added double-sided tape in the mask to make it stick to the face.

Pan then took his invention to Huntington Beach, California, where a massive anti-mask protest was held to shoot it at people. But in a surprising turn of events, he found that many more people were wearing face masks.

He ended the video by saying that he hopes that the change has finally come and people are starting to be more aware of the importance of face masks.

BAGI pengguna komputer riba atau lebih dikenali sebagai laptop, jenama Toshiba bukan lagi asing bagi mereka. Walau banyak pesaing lain dalam pasaran, ketahahan laptop jenama tersebut membuatkan ia masih menjadi pilihan ramai.

Toshiba adalah syarikat komputer Jepun yang merupakan salah satu pengeluar laptop terkuat di dunia.

Malangnya, setelah hampir 35 tahun dalam pengeluaran produk laptop, Toshiba kini mengumumkan pengunduran diri mereka dan akhirnya terpaksa akur dengan situasi dunia perniagaan yang tidak menentu.

Menurut kenyataan yang dikeluarkan oleh Toshiba, jenama tersebut secara rasminya telah menjual 19.9 peratus saham terakhir mereka kepada Dynabook Inc iaitu perusahaan milik Sharp.

Ia adalah baki kepada saham terkecil mereka selepas menjual sebahagian besarnya kepada Sharp pada tahun 2018.

“Dengan menjual baki saham terakhir ini, maka secara rasminya Dynabook adalah syarikat rasmi milik Sharp yang mengambil alih laptop jenama ini,” kata Toshiba dalam satu kenyataan rasmi dikeluarkan.

Sebelum ini, pada tahun 2018, Toshiba telah menjual 80.1 peratus saham perniagaan komputernya kepada Sharp pada nilai USD36 juta. Sejak hari itulah, Sharp telah menggantikan perniagaan ini menjadi Dynabook.

Dalam satu kenyataan rasmi, Toshiba mengatakan Sharp telah menggunakan haknya untuk saham terkecil mereka sejak Jun lalu.

Apa pun berita Toshiba ‘menarik diri’ dari dunia laptop sangat mengejutkan ramai pihak.

Ini kerana sepanjang tahun 1990 hingga 2000, Toshiba kerap menjadi salah satu vendor laptop yang sentiasa menjadi pilihan orang ramai kerana kualitinya terutama dalam kalangan pelajar universiti.

Malah Toshiba telah mengeluarkan komputer riba pertamanya iaitu siri T1100 pada tahun 1985 di Eropah denagn harga USD2000 dollar.

Siri T1100 adalah pendorong awal pertumbuhan industri komputer riba di era itu dengan sasaran jualan tahunan sebanyak 10,000 unit seperti dilaporkan oleh KompasTekno dari The Verge.

Menurut Computer World, meski banyak tawaran komputer riba lain di pasaran, Toshiba sering menjadi vendor paling popular yang menjadi pilihan pengguna.

Pada 2015, Toshiba mengumumkan kerugian dengan nilai USD318 juta dollar. Kerugian itu antara faktor utama mengapa Toshiba tidak mahu meneruskan perniagaan dalam bidang ini di pasaran Eropah pada tahun 2016.

Bahkan pada tahun 2017, Toshiba juga mengalami kerugian dengan hanya mampu menjual sebanyak 1.9 juta unit sahaja.

Selamat tinggal Toshiba!

Shopping is no longer what it used to be. Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, my wife and I find ourselves planning hours ahead before heading out.

While the multiple movement and temperature checkpoints at the entrance of malls and retailers are certainly a good thing to keep track of the coronavirus, it has alas forced many to shop online.

Physical shopping has become a hassle. Because of social distancing measures, stores these days have a certain limit to the amount of people who can be inside. So if you wish to purchase a t-shirt, you’ll need to stand waiting in the long queue for a significant amount of time.

“If only there was an immersive shopping experience as real life,” my wife groaned, as thirty minutes passed with the queue only budging a few metres.

The coronavirus has no doubt disrupted the way we live, the manner in which companies conduct their businesses, and the way we shop.

Wading the coronavirus storm.

My wife is not the only one who feels this way because across the sea in Singapore, Jackson Aw sat scratching his head while observing the rise in coronavirus cases on his laptop in April, 2020.

“I was preparing for the year’s Comic Con in Thailand when the nationwide lockdowns began, causing us to postpone the plan,” Aw said to Mashable Southeast Asia.

Aw, who is the founder and CEO of Mighty Jaxx, a Singaporean-based design studio specializing in creating unique toys and art collectibles, sighed. His team and him were looking forward to this annual event.

Among the artists who were supposed to have their collections on display was the late Thai graphic designer and street artist Pharuephon “Tum” Mukdasanit aka “Mamafaka”. The artist is well known for one of the most recognizable characters in Thai pop art: ‘MR.HELLYEAH!’.

“Mamafaka has had a huge influence in Thailand. His art has inspired a lot of young artists from the country. Since the late 2000s, he was one of the few active street artists in Thailand who grew to create brand partnerships with Vespa, Converse, and more. Due to this, many looked up to him,” Aw said, adding that the virtual experience wouldn’t have been possible without the blessing of Mamafaka’s family.

Going virtual.

Across the globe, many retailers, event companies, museums and art centres, entertainment outlets, and more had to close down temporarily as half a billion of the world’s population began remaining indoors.

It was the start of what we now call the ‘New Norm’.

“We were pretty bummed that we weren’t able to present this event in the physical space.”

Undeterred, Jackson saw that this was the perfect opportunity to try out something new: Virtual experience store.

Despite not being physically close to each other as they used to be in the office, Mighty Jaxx quickly got together online and began their work on Mamafaka’s Hideout.

Within just a matter of three months, the team was able to create a virtual experience unlike any other.

Using the W, S, A, and D keys to move and the mouse to look around, this was a first person shopping experience. The concept, of course, borrowed heavily from renowned FPS games such as Counter-Strike and simulation games such as The Sims and Neopets.

“We began thinking about creating a digital world that’ll allow us to present our ideas and concepts for the physical booth for the event,” he said.

The set designers immediately went to work together with the web designers to create an environment that was cool yet had a story element to it. The idea was to create an experience that is not only unique but nostalgic.

The entire experience begins in an alley where you’ll come across a manhole. Using the V button, I made my way underground to experience Mamafaka’s Hideout for myself.

Below, I had the option to turn left to Reaper Rats Underground Crib or head right to MR. HellYeah’s room.

Aw tells me that while the experience is unique, it was a homage to the late artist.

“We didn’t create this experience to derive profit but to give our customers a different experience. With movement controls in place, many are stuck indoors and desire to be stimulated by interacting with digital assets.”

Aw believes that humanity is in an interesting time and virtual stores such Mamafaka’s Hideout will be common place in the future.

“We pay attention to physical items such as collectibles, movie memorabilia, and vinyl records because of nostalgic reasons and yet we want to be technologically advanced. It’s really about creating a social element about this collecting experience for the collectors and extending an entertainment value of buying a physical item.”

For Aw, Mamafaka’s Hideout is already a success in its own right. It was a testimony on the possibility of replicating real life experiences virtually while allowing people to purchase online.

“I think COVID-19 has created a new standard and has impacted a lot of ways we interact as individuals. The awkward nuances of shaking hands and bumping of fists, these will translate into more dense areas such as shopping or going to a Comic Con or social gatherings. I believe creating a virtual experience or platform such as this where you’re able to enjoy the experience the brands built for you and purchase the items as a physical deliverable to you,” Aw said, adding that there could be a possibility where if you wish to purchase a t-shirt, you could test it out on your virtual avatar to see if it’s the right fit.

“So it’s really like the social games of the past such as Neopets except that they’re all happening in real life.”

Aw is already thinking of ideas on ways to expand on this project. He didn’t deny the possibility of integrating AR and VR as a seamless blend between the physical and digital realm.

He visualizes a time when even digital representations of physical items can be brought over to virtual spaces because majority of our lives from now on will revolve being primarily indoors.

“It’s going to be so mundane. I feel this is also one of the reasons we created Mamafaka Hideout.”

Gone are the days when a business owner who owns multiple stores is considered successful. Success in the age of the new norm is if a particular company is capable of creating immersive experiences.

Mamafaka’s Hideout is one of them and you can experience it for yourself here.

In addition to smartphones, tablets and earbuds, Samsung also unveiled its latest smartwatch during Wednesday’s Galaxy Unpacked event: the Galaxy Watch3.

The new wearable is a follow-up to the original Galaxy Watch launched back in 2018. And in case you’re confused: No, the Galaxy Watch 2 doesn’t exist.

The Watch3 doesn’t look all that different from its predecessor in terms of aesthetic, but it does offer a few new features under the hood. From enhanced sleep tracking to more in-depth fitness analysis, it’s essentially your go-to option if you’re looking for a traditional looking smartwatch that can still keep up with your workouts.

The watch will start at $399 and will be on sale from Aug. 6. Here’s a rundown of all the features and capabilities of the Watch3.

A familiar design

The Galaxy Watch3 comes in two different size options: 41mm (for those with smaller wrists) and 44mm. You can also choose between Bluetooth or LTE connectivity, depending on whether you’re looking to use it as a standalone device.

Both versions are slightly smaller than the 42mm and 46mm case sizes of the first-generation version. They’re slightly thinner and lighter, too. Additionally, the bezels around the display aren’t as thick.

Both cases are made of stainless steel and available in a variety of different colors, depending on the size. The 41mm case comes in Mystic Bronze and Mystic Silver while the 44mm size is available in Mystic Black and Mystic Silver. In the box, you’ll also get a matching leather watch strap with the option to swap it out for other styles.

Samsung’s also brought back its well-known rotating bezel. Rather than only relying on the touchscreen display, you can use the bezel to cycle through different menus such as fitness metrics, weather, notifications, and more.

As for battery life, the Watch3 maintains the same long battery life as the original version. Samsung says with the 41mm watch you can get up to a day’s worth of juice while the 44mm device will last up to two days. Of course, that’s dependent on how much or how little you use it.

A few health and fitness upgrades

When it comes to new features, the Galaxy Watch3 has enhanced its sleep tracking capabilities across the board. While the original watch is only able to track REM sleep, the new watch is also able to track duration of sleep and time spent awake, in addition to your sleep cycles (REM, deep, and light sleep).

Both the watch and the Samsung Health app will provide you with a sleep score each morning, as well as insights and tips on how to improve on your sleep habits.

As for fitness capabilities, the Watch3 has support for up to 40 different exercise modes — seven of which, including running and cycling, are auto detected. It also features on-demand VO2 Max, which calculates the amount of oxygen you consume during your workouts, and has a built-in heart rate monitor.

Like Samsung’s Galaxy Watch Active 2, the Watch3 has a Running Coach feature with audio cues that play through the speaker on the watch or through connected Bluetooth headphones. In addition to keeping you motivated throughout your runs, it provides you with feedback and analysis (on things like pace and form) that you can then improve on in the future.

Similar to the Apple Watch Series 5, the Watch3 also offers Trip Detection. If the accelerometer detects you’ve fallen, you’ll be able to alert specific contacts via SMS.

Samsung did include the ability to receive SpO2 readings via the Samsung Health app along with electrocardiogram (ECG) and blood pressure tracking. However, it’s very important to note that the ability to monitor said blood pressure and take ECG readings aren’t available in the U.S. just yet.

Unlike Apple, Samsung has yet to receive FDA approval on the Watch 3 so it’s not going to work at launch. As of now, the feature is only available in South Korea so you’ll have to wait some time before you can take advantage of it here.

Pricing and availability

Pricing for Galaxy Watch3 varies depending on the model.

The 41mm Bluetooth version will start at US$399 while the LTE model will set you back US$449. Meanwhile, the 45mm case size with Bluetooth starts at US$429. But the LTE pricing on the bigger model has yet to be announced.

You’ll be able to purchase the Galaxy Watch3 from Aug. 6.

Awas! 7 tanda hand phone korang sedang digodam

August 5, 2020 | Info, Tech | No Comments

PERLU diakui kini kita terlalu banyak bergantung pada telefon pintar untuk menyimpan maklumat termasuk membuat kerja bagi sesetengah individu. Sebab itu bila tertinggal atau hilang kita jadi tak keruan. Betul tak?

Boleh dikatakan semua info ada di dalam handphone kita dari nombor telefon, emel sehinggalah urusan perbankan.

Disebabkan ia terlalu banyak menyimpan data peribadi maka telefon bimbit kita berisiko untuk dieksplotasi oleh pihak yang tidak bertanggungjawab atau dengan kata lain digodam.

Oleh itu sekiranya tujuh tanda-tanda ini berlaku pada telefon korang terutama ketika menggunakan wifi tempat terbuka maka hati-hati ya.

  • Bateri telefon cepat habis

Setiap telefon mempunyai kapasiti bateri yang berbeza dan sebagai pengguna telefon, pasti sudah boleh membaca hayat bateri telefon korang kan.

Tetapi jika tiba-tiba bateri telefon berkurang secara drastik dengan penggunaan yang normal kemungkinan besar kerana ada aplikasi yang tidak dikenali sedang beroperasi di sistem telefon tersebut.

Aplikasi tersebut kemungkinan adalah malware yang mampu mencuri data peribadi. Awas!

  • Telefon jadi panas tiba-tiba

Perkara ini akan terjadi jika ada aplikasi yang berjalan dalam sistem telefon. Jika ianya terjadi, disarankan untuk mengambil langkah untuk melihatnya di bahagian Settings > Developer options > Running services.

Jika korang menemui aplikasi yang tak dikenali, ‘delete’ dengan segera dan elakkan memuatnaik aplikasi dari sumber yang tidak boleh dipercayai.

  • Wifi aktif dengan sendiri

Wifi tiba-tiba aktif ketika berada di tempat umum. Perkara ini mungkin disebabkan korang sedang diperhatikan. Melalui Wifi umum, penggodam mudah menghantar virus dan mencuri data peribadi. Dahsyat bukan?

  • Berlaku crossline ketika membuat panggilan

Salah satu tanda telefon digodam ialah korang akan mendengar suara bising dan aneh ketika melakukan panggilan telefon. Perlu sentiasa beringat yer.

  • Kuota internet cepat habis

Ia salah satu tanda ada aplikasi yang sedang mengirim data tanpa pengetahuan sipemilik telefon. Awas ya!

  • Menghantar mesej pelik

Sekiranya rakan atau famili korang menerima mesej berupa emel atau Facebook yang pelik daripada kebiasaan sedangkan korang tidak menghantarnya, besar kemungkinan juga ia sedang digodam.

Begitu juga jika korang mula menerima banyak mesej yang pelik, ia juga tanda telefon sedang dipergunakan oleh pihak tidak bertanggungjawab.

  • Iklan dan ‘pop up’ muncul

Ini adalah antara tanda paling nyata. Ia menandakan ada unsur luar sudah menceroboh.

Semoga bermanfaat dan perlu lebih berhati-hati selepas ini yer guys!
