What Is the Difference Between a Web Designer and Web Developer?

Article | February 18, 2020

There is often confusion around Web Developers and Web Designers, as people consider them to be performing the same set of duties which includes designing a website – when, in fact, that is indeed what both of them do – however, on an entirely different spectrum. So the terms ‘web designers’ and ‘web developers’ are not interchangeable. How? Let’s see the major differences in detail. Before we dive into their expertise and which part of the website building process they are in charge of, know that it is possible to be both. Since all it takes is to have the necessary skills related to both professions.

MACHINE LEARNING

Machine Learning is Bringing Us the Future…NOW

Article | February 18, 2020

Machine learning — a branch of artificial intelligence that gives computer systems the ability to automatically improve and learn from experience — has been making serious waves for the last few years. More recently, though, the applications for smartphones and other small screen experiences have started to take shape, driving the way millions interact with their mobile devices. Yes, Your Mobile Devices are Becoming Smarter So what do these innovations means for your business? Machine learning can, essentially, make your smartphone “smarter” by improving a host of functions and processes instantly. In fact, most smartphones are already using some type of machine learning or intelligent automation application that aids mobile devices in becoming more efficient and effective. Predictive text messaging, for example, is one such application that’s already become part of the mobile vernacular — chances are, you use it daily without thinking twice. As a whole, businesses are ramping up their machine learning investment, meaning we’ll be seeing more of this technology — and more accessible versions of this technology — in the coming months and years. For each generation, there’s an added level of intuitiveness when it comes to mobile technology — your current smartphone is smarter than the computers that helped bring man to the moon, in many ways. From that end, how advanced will our mobile devices be in another 10 or 20 years? Smartphones could be paving the way for Robotic Process Automation (RPA) and evolving the very way many industries work. What’s Next for Mobile Machine Learning Historically, machine learning requires a tremendous amount of power — power mobile devices simply didn’t have. However, businesses can now install special chips in drones, automobiles and smartphones enabling them to consume 90 percent less power. As a result, mobile devices — even without an internet connection — can perform a variety of once-complex tasks, including: Voice Recognition Language Translation Virtual / Augmented Reality Smarter Camera Functionalities Improved Device Security Going forward, envelope-pushers are driving towards even bigger, better, more sophisticated applications — think motion control and navigation, diagnosing and analyzing sensory data and more. Interactivity or perceptual interfaces are also capabilities that the new applications are expected to be equipped with, giving mobile devices seemingly endless capabilities. Due to these unique benefits, machine learning on small devices is clearly becoming a priority for businesses.

The New WFH: From Want to Need

Article | February 18, 2020

A 2019 report on the State of Remote Work concluded that “remote work is here to stay.” The survey of nearly 2,500 remote workers found that an overwhelming 99% said they wanted to work from home, at least some of the time, for the remainder of their careers. And that was long before any “shelter in place” order from any government official.

The streaming, AI and VR-assisted future of listening

Article | February 18, 2020

As our world has become filled with screens in our work as well as personal lives, it has also become filled with more and more visual imagery – and it can all start to feel a bit garish, a bit fake or simply too much. For some time now, whenever I’m in the office, instead of sitting in front of my laptop over lunch, I force myself away from my desk for 15 minutes, find a quiet space or just sit in my car, put in my earphones, turn on some music, and close my eyes. I've found that I can actually relax better by tuning out the visual world and concentrating on my music. I sleep better, I dream better, I live better. Even the brief lunch break clearly does some good, as I often work and engage better in the afternoon too. According to a recent study, I’m not alone. Feeling increasingly distressed by fakery and overloaded with superficial images, millennials and Gen Z in particular are seeking deeper connection, greater meaning and more mindfulness – and they’re finding it when they close their eyes and start to listen.
