Logitech Designing New Keyboard for VR

TechCrunch reports on the newest technological developments by the company Logitech, which has begun developing keyboards specifically for use in virtual reality.

No matter your experience with typing and using a computer, many find it both disorienting and frustrating to use a keyboard the first time they enter VR. To solve this problem, Logitech is creating a keyboard compatible with the HTC Vive, helping users and their headset know where the keyboard is at all times in relation to themselves.

These kits are composed of three distinct parts, only one of which is the keyboard itself. The second is a special sensor that tells the Vive where the keyboard is, giving a more organic and useful feel to typing that it absent from regular VR use. The third piece is software development kit, allowing users to modify the program however they like for easier and better use.

In a demo video released by the company, it is revealed that one of the techniques used to help orient users to typing within virtual reality is by projecting their own hands above the virtual keyboard. This gives users a better feel of where they are in relation to their technology and will significantly reduce the amount of dissociation caused while operating a computer in VR.

This technology is not yet ready for release to the public, however, with more testing required before the company is certain it will work as intended. Logitech is seeking volunteers for the first wave of testing, looking for 50 developers who would be willing try out these kits and report on any bugs and leave their feedback. Applications will be accepted until November 16.

Robot Lawyers Are A Thing Now

Four Cambridge law students have developed an artificial intelligence program dubbed Case Cruncher Alpha, which can predict whether the Ombudsman will allow a claim with an accuracy rate of over 80%.

 

In a truly futuristic contest that took place last month, the Case Cruncher AI went up against 100 lawyers from several high-profile London firms. The challenge was to determine whether man or machine could predict the outcomes of cases with greater accuracy.

 

The computer won the contest, predicting 86.6% of cases accurately. The human lawyers, on the other hand, finished with an accuracy rate of just 66.3%.

 

The truly impressive thing about Case Cruncher isn’t just its prediction ability, but the fact that its developers don’t have a background in computer science. Case Cruncher began as a simple chatbot that could answer legal questions. It developed into its current incarnation under the guidance of Chief Executive Ludwig Bull, who taught himself about AI during law school.

 

As with many forms of artificial intelligence, Case Cruncher’s success has raised concerns about whether certain legal jobs are in jeopardy. Could this hail the end of paralegals and junior lawyers?

 

Felix Steffek, a Cambridge lecturer who helped oversee the competition, isn’t concerned. “Both sides could have achieved better or worse results under different conditions,” he said, adding that the results of both human and computer could have varied based on lawyer expertise and the stage of AI development.

 

Case Cruncher is still in its very early stages of development, and Steffek believes the real question is whether it will “remain limited to descriptive analysis or whether it will be capable of evaluating rules and events.” But it’s a real possibility that an AI like this will become a useful tool for junior lawyers and paralegals as time goes on.

AMERICAN INSTITUTE OF ARCHITECTS BUILDING CAREERS

The American Institute of Architects is an institution that is working towards building and adding skills to different architects in the United States of America. Its headquarters is in Washington D.C. The institution offers great help to different architects across the country by educating them and also improving the lives of its community. The American Institute of Architects works in collaboration with other companies associated with building design where they work together to ensure that there is smooth coordination in the industry.

The American Institution of Architects is headed by Robert Ivy who is the Chief Executive Officer. He has had very impressive achievements while in the industry of architecture. Among his achievement was using his position to champion the use of architect to building and improving health infrastructure.

Robert Ivy improved the American Institute of Architects so as to create the awareness of the kind of work and importance of architects in the society. He was born in America and specifically in Mississippi. Robert Ivy is an Alumnus of Sewanee University where he graduated with a bachelor’s degree and later on went to further his studies where he did his masters degree in Architecture from Tulane. Robert Ivy is well known for his works on publications to do with an architect who made Robert be well known across the country.

Mr. Robert Ivy has also been admitted as a member of the International Circle of Architecture Critics.

To make it official that one was a certified architect, laws had to be made and a group of professionals had to come up with proper laws. Before the American Institute of Architects was formed people would abuse the profession and this led to the introduction of laws to govern and regulate Architects. The laws made to govern the different architects were put in their constitution in the year 1860. It was named the New York Society of Architects which later on came to be known as the American Institute of Architect.

American Institute of Architects has registered over 100,000 members who are licensed and work professionally under the code of ethics and professional conduct. The architects have to adhere to the code of conduct which is supposed to make the client be sure that the chosen architect is dedicated to their work and will perform their duties as required by the law. Architects no longer get rogue because of the American Institute of Architects which has come to make sure that architects work professionally across the country with the help of their able CEO Mr. Robert Ivy who is a respected person among all architects.

Talking Through Issues In Texts

Having a great friend that you can communicate with about your problems is a wonderful blessing. However, that person does not have to be someone that you know personally anymore. If you are willing to pay a reasonable rate, you can have a therapist willing to text you about your mental health issues.

Talkspace is the way that people all around the country and the world are doing this. It is a newer service out there that helps connect those with mental health struggles with a licensed professional who can help talk them through those problems.

Text messaging someone who is a professional and knows what he or she is doing can help a person receive the best quality care that they can possibly receive. It is a different way of doing things than some might be used to, but that just means that technology has moved in the right direction towards helping us with the mental health problems that we have.

Magallen Health has reached out to Talkspace to partner with them on their program. They want to provide Talkspace to their patients for use in the near future. That program is just about to get kicked off and started. Once that happens, you can bet that more people will have heard about Talkspace, and probably many more will want to start using it as well.

Even though there are lingering stigmas about mental illness, these are slowly being overcome through services such as Talkspace. It is a step in the right direction. It is a sign that technology can be used to help us solve our problems. It is also just a great thing for the whole human race and human condition in general. Few services on one’s phone are as potentially life-altering as this one can be for some people.
