Younger adults more likely than their elders to prefer reading news by  via pewresearchlogo-color

“…When it comes to technology’s influence on America’s young adults, reading is not dead – at least not the news. When asked whether one prefers to read, watch or listen to their news, younger adults are far more likely than older ones to opt for text, and most of that reading takes place on the web…”

Bot Assistants Around Us – A Practical Case

abstract-1278061_640Pupils in an electronic learning course at the Georgia Institute of Technology were amazed to discover that the teaching helper they corresponded with all session ended up to be a robot.

Called Jill Watson, the auto attendant talked with students about homework, course projects, and answered questions about the course, the Wall Street Journal reports.

Jill Watson is part of Georgia Tech’s on-line learning programs offering university grade courses to thousands of pupils via Udacity. According to the Georgia Institute of Technology, their bot gets up  10, 000 messages each semester, which is simple for people to get bogged down or be able to respond to all the questions.

Today, Watson powered technology is used also by a bevy of companies. The machine understanding and statistics technology had been trained to know perfect recipes, answer economic concerns, conduct client support in Spanish and power a goalkeeper robot at a popular resort chain.

Whilst the interaction isn’t completely streamlined however, people are now able to speak with bot assistants rather than humans via Facebook chats.

But the particular bot at the Georgia Institute of Technology is not like bots you may find in Facebook, it is able of more developed interactions.

Last but not least you have to consider that having a bot privately maintaining TA responsibilities through a semester might be seen as an ethical difficulty, but for this particular course it is sensible and appropiate.

July, 6: how to censor the web. The Italian way…

Since this week, the Italian Authority for Communications, when a copyright violation is just reported (not proved by a Court as in all the other countries), can remove or inhibit any Italian or foreign website by blocking the IP address or the Domain Name Systems. This new regulation (not a law) actually represents a violation of the Net Neutrality.

SoundConverter: the best (and the simpliest) audio converter for Ubuntu!

Linux PageThis week, in our Linux Page (in Spanish) we have posted a review SoundConverter which is, in our opinion, the best and perhaps the most complete audio converter for Ubuntu. SoundConverter is very simple to install and after few minutes you will be able to freely “play” with your music library. SoundConverter plays: Ogg Vorbis, AAC, MP3, FLAC, WAV, AVI, MPEG, MOV, M4A, AC3, DTS, ALAC, MPC, Shorten, APE and writes: WAV, MP3, FLAC and Ogg Vorbis files. In the SoundConverter website you can also find some useful extra instructions about “how to enable mp3 output“. More in general, please don’t forget to take a look at the Ubuntu Documentation site to learn how to play restricted formats on your Feisty. AddThis

Lubi: the Linux based Ubuntu Installer

LubiLubi is a useful tool for all people who like to experiment different Linux OS on their PCs. In particular Lubi has been thought to let you install Ubuntu in just few clicks and without risking annoying “secondary effects” on your computer. In our Linux Page (in Spanish) we have posted a small but effective review with all the necessary links to the Lubi project and we have also listed all the Linux OS (PCLinuxOS 2007 32-bit, openSUSE 10.2 32-bit, Gentoo 2007.0 32-bit, etc..) already tested for a safe -Lubi- use. We strongly recommend Lubi for all users who want to deeply test Ubuntu (and its features) without starting from the Live CD. AddThis

GreatNews: a free portable RSS reader

Today in our Freeware page we posted a review about the beta version of GreatNews: the simpliest (but most efficient) RSS reader I have never tested before. I strongly raccomend the use of GreatNews also because you can easily install this freeware in a USB Key.
