Apple has announced that it s creating its first app development accelerator in Asia, as the Cupertino company seeks to woo India s engineering community with a dedicated space in which to learn design best-practices for Apple s mobile operating system.Expected to open in Bengaluru in early 2017, the iOS App Design and Development Accelerator will support engineering talent and accelerate growth in India s iOS developer community, according to a press release.India has emerged as a key battleground for the big U.S. tech companies as both Google and Facebook look to tap the burgeoning online population — with varying degrees of success — even though much of the country s 1.3 billion inhabitants remain offline.And earlier this year, Apple confirmed plans to open a new development hub in Hyderabad, India that s expected to eventually house around 4,500 people.Apple s new app accelerator will essentially serve to help developers improve their design and development skills for iOS and will include one-on-one app reviews for developers, as well as support for Apple s programming language, Swift.India is home to one of the most vibrant and entrepreneurial iOS development communities in the world, said Apple CEO Tim Cook.With the opening of this new facility in Bengaluru, we re giving developers access to tools which will help them create innovative apps for customers around the world.Bengaluru is a major startup hub in India — an estimated one million people work in the city s technology industry, while more than 40 percent of university graduates in the area specialize in IT or engineering, according to Apple.This isn t the first such center Apple has unveiled — earlier this year, it announced its first iOS App Development Center in Europe, to be located at a partner institution in Naples, Italy.The company also has a similar hub in Brazil.
We looked at the big picture and distilled the 2016 Exponential Manufacturing conference into the four big themes we saw emerge during the event.Dale Doughtry, CEO and founder of Maker MediaCrowdfunding platforms are fueling the entry of these low-cost machines, like the Makerarm, which raised nearly half a million dollars on Kickstarter, and is the first complete digital fabrication robotic arm that mounts to a desktop.Robotics expert and director of Columbia University s Creative Machine Labs, Hod Lipson, projected how these advances in AI and robotics will converge to create fully resilient and adaptive cloud-connected factories in the future.Shree Bose took this route with Piper, a computer kit for kids to learn engineering through the game Minecraft and the grand prize winner of Google s Global Science Fair.Bose said she only built one scrappy prototype of Piper before beginning the Kickstarter campaign.Hagel said the economy is splitting into two parts—products and services are fragmenting into smaller and smaller pieces, while the platforms knitting them together are getting bigger.
And despite the overflow of data available to marketers today, some still struggle with identifying who you are.In her blog post, Principal Marketing Manager for HubSpot's optimization team Pamela Vaughan defines personas as fictional, generalized representations of your ideal customers.Taryn Collins, content manager and Web editor for cloud platform Acquia, points out that personas are representations of real customers while segments are groups of actual customers that share similar traits.In a blog post, Gartner's VP of Content Publishing Heather Pemberton Levy writes that personas are built from a combination of the following data points:Demographic income, geography, level of education, age Psychographic values, opinions, interests, aspirations, attitudes, and lifestyles Ethnographic observations of customers in their daily routines Transactional historical customer relationship data, first- and third-party purchase data, post-sale services Behavioral: engagement across channels Buffer Content Crafter Kevan Lee also encourages marketers to check their site analytics for traffic trends; do some social listening to see what problems or concerns customers are talking about; conduct surveys to learn about customers' goals, values, and pain points; and collect feedback from other departments, like customer service.Once marketers obtain this information, Lee says they should stitch it together to bring the persona to life.There's no perfect number of personas one needs to create, but Levy says four to eight is typical.
Shares of the small tech company MGT Capital Investments were up more than 37% on Tuesday at $4.08 per share.With over 108 million shares traded, it was the most active stock, ahead of Bank of America.Tuesday was another day in a stream of strong upward moves for the stock after the company announced on May 9 that it was naming John McAfee, founder of antivirus firm McAfee Security, as CEO and re-branding the firm John McAfee Global Technologies Inc.The surge followed the McAfee announcement, which included a sudden shift in the business from online gaming to cybersecurity.MGT acquired D-Vasive, a company that produces software that protects cellphones, on May 9.Before the shift, the company focused on online games such as slots simulator SlotChamp and had a 10% stake in daily fantasy site DraftDay.com.The firm had no holdings regarding cybersecurity before the acquisition, according to its most recent annual filing.Here's what we know about the abrupt pivot so far:September 8, 2015: MGT sells all but 11% of its stake in DraftDay.com, according to its annual report.April 14: After delaying its annual report from March 31, MGT files its report, saying it has $359,000 in cash on hand.The report does say that following the sale of DraftDay, the firm is "considering all methods to create value for shareholders, including potential mergers, spin-offs, distributions and other strategic actions.Brauser has been sued numerous times for fraud involving small, publicly listed firms, though some of those allegations have been dismissed.The most recent was dismissed in September 2015, for the company IDI Inc.

The right password manager should do more than just lock your passcodes within an encrypted vault in order to minimize your vulnerability against attacks.While such a feature may be handy, this type of password management isn t going to do you any good — in fact, it could even make you more vulnerable, since browsers are often anything but secure.Once you ve set up your master password, LastPass allows you to import all of your saved login credentials — i.e.The embedded password generator also lets you create a range of distinct passwords on the fly, while the simple auto-fill function helps you curate web forms in seconds.Unfortunately, you ll have to dish out a measly $10 if you plan to log into the software more than 10 times — which you likely will — but the subscription lasts an entire year and is much more approachable in price than several other offerings on our list.Its biggest drawback is the lack of a free version, and the limited syncing options available through the one-time-purchase.

As FindFace has shown, image recognition has made incredible strides over the past few years.Neural networks are brain-like computer systems designed to pick out and create patterns based on inputs.These less-than-accurate representations, be it on purpose or due to lack of drawing skills, often leads to dramatized proportions and missing elements that might not prevent humans from recognizing the image, but causes problems for computers.Using more than 600 individuals, scientists displayed a random image for only two seconds and asked the participant to sketch the pictured object from memory.In the initial testing phase, the program was able to match the doodles up to their original image 37 percent of the time.From a more commercial standpoint, one of the most useful features of this technology would be to help police identify criminals by comparing sketch artists renderings to mugshot databases.
Nokia sold off their mobile and devices division back in 2014, in hopes that the brand would live on under Microsoft's care.Unfortunately, Microsoft hasn't exactly been putting a strong focus on their Windows phones, which means that the Nokia brand has been in a slump for quite some time.Today, it was announced that Microsoft would be selling the rights to the Nokia brand to HMD global for the next ten years.HMD is brand new Finnish company that appears to have been founded with the purpose of creating Nokia-branded phones and tablets.Additionally, Microsoft announced that they were selling the remainder of their feature phone business assets to FIH Mobile Limited a subsidiary of Foxconn .HMD and FIH will be working together to create Nokia-branded Android phones and tablets over the next ten years.

In a bid to win over more Indian developers, Apple on Wednesday announced it would set up by early next year a facility to help developers on best practices and to improve the design, quality and performance of their apps on the iOS platform.Apple estimates that over 1 million people in the city work in the tech sector, with over 40 percent of graduates from local universities specializing in engineering or IT.Apple s CEO Tim Cook is on his first visit to India, which he has identified as a growth market for the company, where he expects disproportionate growth versus the more developed areas.Developers usually try out a concept first on Android before offering an iOS version of the app, as it is easier to validate the concept with the large amount of feedback you get from Android users, he added.But iOS is also attractive for developers because users of the iPhone tend to have higher purchasing power and are more likely to retain apps they download, in contrast to Android users who frequently delete apps to save on memory on their phones, Mathew said.The company will also give developers access to tools which will help them create innovative apps for customers around the world, and provide support on Apple s Swift programming language.
