Introducing Google Play Instant, a Faster Way to Try Apps and Games

Gaming to get a lot more easier with Google Play Instant

Google is about to make gaming much more enjoyable and fun with its new Google Play Instant. You can now even test out games before you download them onto your mobile device. This is not all, Google has also done a revamp on its Google Play game app. You can now get more details pertaining to the app, be it a news story or a YouTube video.

Games tend to be the highest downloaded content on anyone’s smartphone. Google has even noted on its blog post that the number of people to download a game from their gaming app has doubled since the last year. Gaming is a booming industry yet for the developers it is still  a struggle to create awareness of their game and that is why Google has introduced a way in which users can first preview a game and then if they like what they see download it.

What is Google play Instant?

Google Play Instant takes off form Google’s instant apps where Google transformed a company’s app into a website. So you don’t want to be routed to download a particular app to buy a particular product, then no worries because all you need to do is check out the web url of the app and you’re sorted. There is no need to download the app, this was the whole premise behind Google’s Instant apps.

This was all two years news, but at the Game Developers conference in San Francisco, Google announced a Google Play Instant for games.

What’s there in this new version of the Google Play gaming app?

Google has gone and done a revamp of its gaming platform with new headings and news articles pertaining to its Google Play games. The Google play Game app now comes with a heading called “Arcade” where you can check out game video trailers and you can also browse games according to a genre like “adventure” or “action” or “new”.

Google has also mentioned in its blog post that it would allow users to see content of their games from YouTube or any other source depending on the link to the game. This is in a bid to up the gaming skills of their users.

In Google Play Instant you can first check out a particular game before going ahead with buying and downloading it. All you have to do is just select the game you want tap on it and play it without the need to download it. When you like what you play, you can go ahead and download it. The first games to get on board Google Play instant at this free preview stage include games such as Clash Royale, Final Fantasy XV and Words with Friends 2.

The team behind Google Play Instant, have also decided to increase the file size of their games from 2MB to 10 MB which is not at all surprising given the graphics and other features of the game packed onto a single game app.

Physicists Create New Form of Light

Physicists Create New Form of Light

New Form of Light to help in Quantum Computing?

Using light to transfer information is nothing new. Today we see optical fibers being used for just that. But what if light or photons could be used in distributing quantum information in a unique never-seen-before-kind of way? Researchers have found a way to create a new form of light by getting photons to come together and stay together.

Taking a simple example of placing two torches facing one and another with the beams on, you will notice that the light just passes by the other beam without anything interesting happening.

This is what light or photons do, they do not interact with other photon particles. But researchers have found a way to create a situation in which these light particles or photons interact with one and another to create a new form of light. What’s more is that this new form of light does not even require bending the laws of physics to achieve this scenario.

How can these photons be made to interact to create this new form of light?

Researchers have observed that photons can stick together and create a new form of light. With current experimentation, they have found groups of three photons sticking together to create a new form of photonic matter.

Researchers shone a very weak beam of light through a cloud of rubidium atoms and discovered that the photons came out in groups of two and three creating a new form of light.

Further observation also noted that photons, that normally travel at the speed of light now became slower and more sluggish than before, the newly combined photons now took on a fraction of an electron’s mass. The newly formed photonic matter now moved at 100,000 times slower than what it did before. If photons could be made to interact in such ways to create a new form of light, then these newly formed photonic matter could be harnessed to perform incredibly complex quantum computations in a very short span of time.

The Experiment in creating a new form of Light:

Getting photons to interact with one and other has been a life long struggle for many scientists but not anymore. In 2013 scientists struggles came to fruition when they were able to combine photons and create a new form of photonic matter or new form of light.

In the experiment, researchers used a cloud of rubidium atoms that they cooled to create a state of immobilized atoms. Researchers then shone a very weak beam of light through the cloud. Measurements after this process yielded a solution that researchers were waiting years for. The photons combined with each other in groups of twos and threes and remained together even after the experiment, creating a new form of matter.

The newly formed photonic matter or new form of light was found have a strong bond meaning that the photons had interacted with the other photons strongly.

Scientists came up with an explanation as to how this was happening. When photons pass through the cloud of rubidium atoms, they land from one atom to the next and while landing on an atom, the photon becomes a polariton which is a hybrid between a photon and a rubidium atom. Two polaritons react with one and other through their atomic component. At reaching the edge of the cloud, the atom component remains back and the newly joined photons leave the cloud, giving a new form of light.

Light Controls Two-Atom Quantum Computation

Light Controls Two-Atom Quantum Computation

Scientists Reveal That It the Light Which Controls the Two Atom Quantum Computation

We all dream about a hassle and extremely quick travelling convenience not limited to the just the cities few kilometres apart but oceans apart. Scientists have found that the research in the realm of the quantum physics especially of the quantum computation can help in making such dreams into a reality. Currently efforts are towards creating such large quantum networks which can enable the single light quanta filled with quantum information to be transferred to large distances. If scientists are able to build such quantum networks then it will serve as the fundamental building blocks for creating a highly refined version of such technology allowing for the transmission of information and matter across large distances.

Quantum Computation: Discovering the gates

A group of scientists at Max Plank institute of Quantum Optics has come up with a new concept of the quantum gates. Scientist has developed an optical activity in which two atoms were trapped inside and photons were impinged in it to generate an interaction. This particular interaction helped in finding the base characteristics of the gate operations which can be seen easily between the two atoms.

The new method has left every spellbound and also helped in showcasing the advantages of its uniqueness which can certainly in making the longer distance ravel within few seconds a possibility in future.With quantum computation it was found that that the gate mechanism can easily be used as an experimental platform while the two atom gate can be utilized as a building block to act as a quantum repeater.

How this Quantum Computation experiment was conducted?

The major element utilized in the experiment was an asymmetric high-finesse optical resonator which had two mirrors. One was a high reflection mirror while other was the mirror with a finite transmission capability.

Later on in this experiment two electrically neutral rubidium atoms were simply trapped within the centre of the cavity.Now each of the atoms was infused one qubit of quantum information which helps in the quantum computation. In order to open up the gates these single protons are moved through the semi-transparent mirror.

As per the different initial state of the atom it results in different scenarios which aren’t within the control of the scientists. When both the atoms reaches the non-coupling state as shown by the photons then kit enter the cavity and a light is passed through the two mirrors build up to initiate the experiment.

Quantum Computation; Opening a door into future

The mechanism which rules the gate operation is quite simple and marvellous as it has just one physical step.This gate mechanism has helped the scientist to travel distance between the qubits of just 2-12 micrometres but with time they will be able to travel a larger distance.

The best thing about this experiment is that it doesn’t rely on any special or specific kind of platform and it can applied on a wide variety of atoms, ions and other solid state quantum dots as well and ushering a new era in the quantum computation.

Now Comment On Google Drive Files without Opening Them in Other Apps

Google Drive Files: We can now make a note on Google Drive files without notching them in other apps

Google is intensifying the approach people can remark on Google Drive files. We can now write comments from foretastes within Drive, as contrasting to enclosing to untie them in Google Drive Files, Sheets, or even Slides. This is really an excellent thing for the reason that it has smaller number of tabs as well as smaller amount apps, together of which are thing we can choose.

We can now draw attention to lines in a folder and make remarks such as you generally do on a Google Drive Files, as well as those remarks will tag on all the way through in individual application, also, such as in Microsoft Office apps. Thus, if you make a remark on Google Drive files, or else even dole out an assignment or point out a co-worker, those comments may also tag along the file anywhere it goes.  In the blog on the new-fangled facet, Google stresses that this attribute is the crop of its affiliation in the company of Microsoft. It furthermore gave the clarification that we can by now download Drive hook up to build it easier to slot in Drive files hooked on Outlook emails.

Google Drive Files formulates it trouble-free to stock up as well as carve up files in the cloud thus we can pool resources firmly among our panels as well as clients whilst on the set off. In addition to we comprehend that panel work by means of all sorts of files as well as gears to dig up things completed. Early these days, Google made very simple as it now promising to note unswervingly on additional file type together with Microsoft Office files, PDFs as well as images—exclusive of containing to adapt them hooked on Docs, Sheets or Slides.

While you are pool resources in the company of a peripheral bureau, parley an indenture in the midst of a user or bring together a sales concord among a dealer, chances are you are trading in the midst of several file systems. Through this update, you can now make a remark on the files in Google Drive the method you are used in Google Drive Files. Here the Drive foretaste pane, note, consign tasks, or else point out coworkers in addition to the people you employ can retort back, yet if they are not by G Suite. If your associate open up a file on his Windows PC by means of MS Word, he will notice your note in the file as well as can respond.

Even now, Microsoft wishes to ensnare Google Drive Files users to their own cloud: OneDrive. The recent past, the corporation proclaims a back-up that permits commercial users of challenging endeavor software matching sets from Dropbox , Box, and Google toggles to OneDrive by Microsoft casing the statement awaiting a business induces its obtainable deal.

However it does not look as if like Microsoft is agreeable to absolutely dissolve its bond with Google just to prevail over cloud clientele. At the present, together Google and Office clients can be fulfilled and work in concert.

Harmony’s nice.

Daimler Takes On Silicon Valley with Hi-Tech Mercedes A-Class

Daimler Takes On Silicon Valley with Hi-Tech Mercedes A-Class

Its Daimler VS Silicon Valley on Mercedes A-Class Voice recognition

Recently amazon’s Alexa and Apple’s Siri are taking the world by storm by inserting themselves into every- day living, be it in your homes, office place and now even in your car. But are all car manufacturers going the Alexa or Siri route? At the premium end of the scale automobile companies like Daimler are making their own way with their own voice recognition featuring on their latest offering the Mercedes A-Class.

The Mercedes A-Class was unveiled last Friday and what attracted spectators the most was not the soft, plush large interiors but the Mercedes’ own voice recognition- “hey Mercedes…”.This is Daimler VS Silicon Valley- “The battle of the voice assistants.”

Voice control on Mercedes A-Class Automobile:

The voice control or “MBUX” on the Mercedes A-Class line up is as capable as the renowned Alexa or Siri. It understands what you mean clearly.

Automobile companies have not really seen the benefit in investing in services that mimic those on the smart phone. In an attempt to keep tech giants away from the automobile market, many premium automobile makers are investing in their own voice recognition tools. As it is, tech companies are taking over the automobile industry with their autonomous driving and voice control features.

With Mercedes voice control on the Mercedes A-Class, if it works as advertised, Daimler is all set to pave the way for other automobile manufacturers in investing in their own voice control systems. Daimler has said that the Mercedes A-Class system will work just as well as Siri or Alexa and all the user has to do is to prefix what they want with a “Hey Mercedes” rather than a “Hey Alexa” or a “Hey Siri”.

Besides the Mercedes A-Class’s roomier interiors, new design and engines and the semi-autonomous driving feature, the main attraction that the Mercedes A-Class boasts of is the MBUX voice control system.

Mercedes A-Class MBUX System:

The MBUX system comes on the two large horizontal touch screens in the Mercedes A-Class. These touch screen panels do away with dashboard instruments completely. The voice control system on the Mercedes A-Class comes with artificial intelligence that learns the behavior of the user as well as predicts commands. The system can even recognize up to eight voices. Instructions can be given from navigation to infotainment.

Most other automobile brands use a technique called mirroring where the user can access all their smart phone apps via a touch screen in their car. Daimler hopes that with their own MBUX voice control system, users won’t be too disappointed to not have Alexa or Siri.

Unlike Alexa or Siri or any other voice control system that uses cloud services, the Mercedes A Class uses software from Nuance Communications, to work even when data connections fail.

It is unsure at present weather making a voice control system the focal point in an automobile’s sales is likely to be successful. Daimler will be the first automobile company to offer their own voice control system with the Mercedes A-Class.
