A couple of years before a fire devastated the National Museum of Brazil in Rio de Janeiro in September, Google's Arts and Culture team started working with the museum to digitize the collection. Just a few months after the inferno, Google has reopened the museum's doors -- albeit in a virtual form using Street View imagery and digital exhibits. The museum and Google were already planning to make the collection available to view online before the incident.
Since its public debut in fall 2017, Google's parental control software, dubbed Family Link, has been steadily expanding, both in terms of its capabilities and its reach. As on Android devices, parents will now be able to manage their child's use of a Chromebook -- including by setting time limits, managing the apps that can be downloaded, setting content filters and more. As a Family Link household ourselves, I've found I prefer managing my child's device from a single, dedicated app, rather than having to dig around in the iPhone's settings -- as I did when my daughter used to tote an iPod.
For those looking to switch things up a touch, Google announced today that Assistant is now capable of speaking in a couple of additional accents for U.S.-based users. Google's blog post spells out the new feature, along with a few obligatory references to fish and chip shops and the like.
Delta, SoftBank, Seaworld, Netflix, Google and Amazon are the companies to watch.
Hotspot Shield security analyst Robert Siciliano discusses Google’s plan to create a censored search engine in China and whether there are Chinese spies within the tech giant.
Google Maps is always ready to help you get where you're going, and the latest addition to its list of features is a tie-in with one of those electric scooter companies that have left their machines laying all over. Now, if you've looked up a route on Google Maps and have decided that walking is too slow and other means of transportation won't work, it can direct you to nearby Lime scooters or bikes. Starting today in 13 cities (Auckland, Austin, Baltimore, Brisbane (AU), Dallas, Indianapolis, Los Angeles, San Diego, Oakland, San Antonio, San Jose, Scottsdale and Seattle), a navigation option shows how long it will take to reach the machine plus an estimate for the cost and time of the ride.
Andrew Little, the country’s justice minister, has summoned the tech company’s executives to a meeting on Tuesday to discuss the incident, which occurred when the US technology giant sent a mass email naming the suspect to subscribers of its Google Trends service in New Zealand. The man’s name was the subject of a court suppression order in New Zealand, a tactic used in some common-law nations in a bid to ensure a fair trial.
Global GDP is set to increase by 14 percent because of artificial intelligence, according to PwC. China's vast amount of data collected along with its massive population gives it an advantage over the U.S. Some 48 percent of all AI venture funding globally went to China in 2017.
For example, Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) has earned most of the profits from smartphones, almost all of the profits from streaming video have gone to Netflix (NASDAQ:NFLX), Nvidia (NASDAQ:NVDA) has gotten much of the profits from chips for artificial intelligence and Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA) has gotten a huge share of the revenue from electric car sales (in the U.S.). In 2019, it’s apparent that these companies will indeed encounter much more intense competition. Unless these companies unveil new or improved features or products, Apple, Netflix, Nvidia and Tesla are likely to be meaningfully hurt by their significantly beefed-up competition.
Amazon (AMZN) stock has fallen over 16% in the last three months as part of the larger market pullback driven by the likes of Apple (AAPL) and other giants. The company's days of 40% top-line growth might also be over. But let's dive into Amazon's overall business picture and outlook to see if investors should buy AMZN stock heading into 2019.
