Apple products and services to go smarter with AI

Apple products and services to go smarter with AI

AP | Jun 14, 2016, 08.31 AM IST

SAN FRANCISCO: Apple is working to make its iPhone and other gadgets smarter, responding to competitors’ recent moves by building more artificial intelligence into its Siri digital assistant, photos, maps and other online services.

The tech giant kicked off its annual software conference by announcing new software features for the Apple Watch and Apple TV, as well, while unveiling a new design for the Apple Music service. It’s also extending Apple Pay to the web, so users can pay for purchases made on their Mac computers using the fingerprint authorization on their iPhone or Apple Watch. Most of these new features won’t arrive until this fall.

At a time when sales of its flagship iPhone are slowing, Apple seemed determined to show that it can make its gadgets indispensable, or at least as useful as its competitors’ products.

Thinking fast and slow

Still, the tech giant is taking a cautious approach to integrating computer intelligence into its online services. While Apple is opening its text messaging service to outside app-builders, for instance, Apple made no mention of adding the kind of intelligent programs, or “chatbots ,” that competitors are all rushing to build into their messaging platforms.

Apple executives also stressed their efforts to safeguard users’ privacy even while providing recommendations and suggestions based on individual user information. The company says it’s committed to keeping most user data encrypted on individual iPhones or other devices, rather than uploading information to process on Apple’s servers.

BJP to give a renewed push to GST Bill

http://www.thehindu.com/news/national/bjp-to-give-a-renewed-push-to-gst-bill/article8721397.ece

 

Basics of GST – Implementation In India

 

The portends of a stormy monsoon session of Parliament and a renewed push from the government for the passage of the Goods and Services Tax (GST) Bill have become stronger after the BJP gained three extra seats to notch up 56 seats in the Rajya Sabha on Saturday.

Union Communications Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad flagged this more aggressive approach of the ruling party saying that the extra seats were a “victory of the BJP’s strategy.”

“We wanted to raise our tally of seats in the Rajya Sabha for obvious reasons, and we have been successful; Congress’ weaknesses have been exposed,” he said.

“It is the political dharma of any political party to consolidate its position,” he added.

The treasury benches are still short of numbers in the Rajya Sabha, where the Opposition has managed to hold its own.

The party had full numbers for only nine of the 12 seats that it won, but gained three seats (one each from Rajasthan, Jharkhand and Haryana) by working on Independents and non-Congress parties, as well as the strange case of 14 invalid votes cast by Congress MLAs in Haryana.

Shah’s strategy

Party sources said party chief Amit Shah had taken a call on this risky strategy, assessing that there was no other way of increasing the party’s tally in the Upper House for a long time to come.

Party leaders and union ministers in Allahabad for the BJP’s national executive justified its aggressive poll strategy for these extra seats.

“It is a message to the Congress to re-examine its strategy of obstructionism in the Rajya Sabha,” a senior Cabinet Minister told The Hindu.

“For more than a year and a half, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has been seeking cooperation from the Congress but that party has blocked all routes to legislation. In the case of the GST, we have exhausted all the institutional avenues available within the parliamentary system. It is time to call the Congress’s bluff,” he said. “On the GST, we want to expose the Congress; either they issue a whip to their members to vote against the Bill or they lock it through protest,” he said.

Finance Minister Arun Jaitley has said on several public occasions, including a meeting with Japanese investors in Osaka this month, that he was “reasonably confident” of getting the constitutional amendment on GST through, since “every political party, including the Congress, favours the GST. In fact, the Congress should have had the vision to support it more aggressively because they could claim the original authorship of the idea.”

He had also said that “every other political party, from the Janata Dal (U) to the Trinamool to the Left in West Bengal and Kerala and the RJD in Bihar was in favour of the GST.”

TO STOP TERRORIST ATTACKS IN AMERICA AMERICA HAS TO CLOSE MORE GUN STORES

WHAT IS THE REAL PROBLEM IN AMERICA IT HAS MORE GUN STORES THAN GROCERY STORES  . IT HAS TO COMPLETELY SHUT  ALMOST 70 PERCENT OF ITS GUN STORES TO CONTROL  TERRORIST ATTACKS IN AMERICA.

There Are 15,000 More Gun Stores In America Than Grocery Stores

In case you are worried that guns haven’t sufficiently permeated American culture, here are some startling facts compiled by Jack Date, Pierre Thomas and Jason Ryan of ABC News.

  • There are ~14,869 more gun stores in America than grocery stores.Specifically, there are 51,438 gun retailers and 36,536 grocery stores.
  • There are almost as many gun dealers in America as gas stations. There are a total of 129,817 gun dealers in the country, which include retail stores (51,438), “collectors” (61,562), pawn shops (7,356), and importers and manufacturers. Meanwhile, there are 143,849 gas stations.
  • There are more than twice as many gun stores in America as McDonalds restaurants. There are only 14,098 McDonalds.
  • American gun companies made 5.5 million new guns in 2010 and 95% of them were sold to Americans.
  • These ~5 million guns weren’t nearly enough to satisfy American demand for guns in 2010, so an additional 3.3 million guns were imported.
  • There were 16.5 million background checks for gun purchases in 2010. You can get a gun unless you have a criminal record or are evidently insane.
  • 47,856 people were murdered in the U.S. with guns from 2006-2010. This was more than twice as many people as those killed by all other methods combined.

That’s only the beginning.

ABC has more >

And there are a whole bunch of additional staggering American gun statistics here >

One of the favorite talking points of those who want military-grade assault weapons to remain freely available to anyone who wants them is that there aren’t enough guns in America. These statistics should reveal that argument for what it is: Laughable.

There are now more guns than people in the United States

October 5, 2015

It’s tough to know exactly how many guns we have in the United States. Most estimates of the number of guns in the U.S. use federal tallies of the firearms manufactured, imported and exported by U.S. gunmakers. A 2012 Congressional Research Service report published exactly one month before the Sandy Hook school shooting put the number of civilian firearms at 242 million in 1996, 259 million in 2000, and 310 million as of 2009.

If that 310 million number is correct, it means that the first year of Barack Obama’s presidency was an inflection point: It marked the first time that the number of firearms in circulation surpassed the total U.S. population.

Data on gun manufacturing from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives now goes through 2013. If we were to update the CRS numbers with the most recent data, we’d get a chart that looks something like this:

Adding up new guns and imports and subtracting gun exports, in 2013 there would have been roughly 357 million firearms in the U.S. — 40 million more guns than people. This is just an estimate. These numbers are blind to firearms that enter and exit the country illegally, and to guns that break down, or are lost or destroyed.

Philip J. Cook of Duke University suspects that estimates based on the ATF numbers don’t properly account for this type of attrition. He’s estimated that roughly 1 percent of the American gun stock gets destroyed, lost or broken in a given year. Applying that factor retroactively back to when the ATF first began keeping records in 1899, that would put the civilian firearm total at something like 245 million as of 2011, he said.

Other estimates downplay the effect of attrition. In 2007, the global Small Arms Survey estimated there were 270 million civilian firearms in the United States. Gary Kleck, a criminologist at Florida State University, says it’s difficult to model the effects of attrition.

“Guns are simple machines made of extremely durable materials,” he said in an e-mail, “yet are both dangerous and valuable enough that their owners would take more-than-average care to avoid losing them.” His numbers produce an estimate nearly identical to the one in the chart above.

 

Regardless of the actual number of civilian firearms in circulation, there’s no ambiguity around one crucial fact: U.S. gun manufacturers have drastically increased their output during the Obama years. In 2009, according to the ATF, gunmakers produced 5.6 million guns. By 2013 their annual production had just about doubled, up to 10.9 million guns that year.

FSU’s Kleck calls this an “Obama effect.” High-profile shootings and talk of changing gun laws “motivates gun owners to get more guns, and perhaps some non-owners to get one ‘while the getting is good,'” he said. This is despite the fact that Congress has not passed any changes to federal firearm legislationsince early 2008.

It’s important to note that even as the number of guns has increased since the early-to-mid-90s, the per-capita gun homicide rate has fallen by nearly halfover the same time period. On the other hand, it’s also true that when you make comparisons between states and countries, you see that places with more guns have more gun homicides, as research from the Harvard School of Public Health shows.

These two seemingly unreconcilable facts form the factual basis for much of the contemporary gun policy debate. Defenders of gun rights can point to falling homicide rates and rising gun numbers and argue that the solution to gun violence is more guns. Gun control advocates, meanwhile, can point out the correlations between gun ownership and gun crime and push for tighter restrictions on gun ownership.

Compounding the difficulty is that now, after years of high-profile killing sprees and vitriolic public debates, each side is deeply skeptical that the other is acting in good faith. Even modest policy proposals, like expanded background checks supported by many members of the National Rifle Associationfail to make it through Congress.

Is there a way to reconcile these divisions? It’s hard to tell. I keep coming back to this quote, from the Economist earlier this year in response to the Charleston massacre.

Those who live in America, or visit it, might do best to regard [mass shootings] the way one regards air pollution in China: an endemic local health hazard which, for deep-rooted cultural, social, economic and political reasons, the country is incapable of addressing.

 

 

 

 

Retail inflation quickens to 5.76% in May on higher food prices

Rising for the second month in a row, retail inflation shot up to 5.76% in May due to rise in prices of food items, including vegetables.

http://www.moneycontrol.com/news/economy/retail-inflation-quickens-to-576mayhigher-food-prices_6855381.html

 

Household goods and services rose by 4.83 percent, while health accelerated to 5.1 percent. Recreation and amusement came in at 4.39 percent, while education was at 5.85 percent for May. In April, CPI came in at 5.39 percent.

 

The Reserve Bank of India and the government have set a target of 5 percent retail inflation by March 2017. Food inflation, which led to a rise in CPI, will see some reversal in coming months on back of good monsoon. While the reversal will not be immediate, some softening will be seen in the later half of monsoon season, says Aditi Nayar, Senior Economist at ICRA. Siddhartha Sanyal, Chief Economist at Barclays also expects inflation to soften in the next three months and the Reserve Bank of India to become more accommodative. However, Indranil Pan, Chief Economist at IDBI Bank disagrees that inflation will come down soon. He believes that even if food prices come down, there is no guarantee of achieving Reserve Bank of India’s inflation target of 5 percent. While Nayar expects 5.3 percent CPI inflation for the full year and a rate cut in second half of the year, Sayal sees a sub 5 percent inflation for second half of FY17. A higher inflation number, above 5 percent, is likely in January-March 2017 period, said Pan, adding that there is not much hope of reduction in inflation right now. Below is the verbatim transcript of Aditi Nayar, Indranil Pan, Vivek Rajpal, Siddhartha Sanyal and Deven Choksey’s interview with Latha Venkatesh on CNBC-TV18. Latha: What’s your take on the manner in which the numbers have come? Nayar: Certainly higher than expected. We had pencilled in around 5.6 percent and this further reinforces our expectation that CPI inflation will remain between 5.5-6 percent in the next two prints as well. There is going to be some reversal in vegetables particularly some of the other perishable items and even some of the livestock related products as the monsoon showers really take away some of the pain that’s being caused by very extreme heat and lack of moisture even for the livestock related items. I would expect that in any case as the expectation right now as the monsoon is going to be significantly above normal in the second half of the monsoon season, so certainly next couple of prints we could expect to see some of this pain continuing, but after that we should be able to see some reversal in some of the food items at least. Also by then the sowing patterns will be lot clearer.

 

 

The Wholesale Price Index focuses on the price of goods traded between corporations, rather than goods bought by consumers, which is measured by the Consumer Price Index. The purpose of the WPI is to monitor price movements that reflect supply and demand in industry, manufacturing and construction. This helps in analyzing both macroeconomic and microeconomic conditions.

 

A consumer price index (CPI) measures changes in the price level of a market basket of consumer goods and services purchased by households.

Potato production is likely to fall in Uttar Pradesh, West Bengal

Sutanuka Ghosal, ET Bureau Nov 19, 2015, 11.30AM IST
(Potato production is likely…)

KOLKATA: Potato production is likely to fall in Uttar Pradesh, West Bengal and Punjab in the current season due to a lack of interest among farmers to sow the crop as well as unfavourable weather conditions. Store gate prices have already firmed up for the old stock of the crop and the new season crop that will be available from January end is expected to be costlier. A glut in production last year had pushed down potato prices below the cost of production, leading to a spurt in suicides by farmers.

 

http://www.business-standard.com/article/markets/the-suicidal-potato-economy-of-west-bengal-115091600865_1.html

 

n December 2010, West Bengal had a record potato output. Starting March 2011, the market started falling. By November 2011, 32 farmers had committed suicide. In December 2011, as the new crop starting coming in, after the old crop was either sold in distress or destroyed, prices stabilised.

By November, 2013 West Bengal was again faced with a crisis. This time, the price of potato had shot up to Rs 50 per kg from Rs 5 per kg two years ago due to low production in the previous year. The state government restricted potato export from West Bengal to other states, imposed a cap on its selling price, and ordered owners to empty their cold storages.

This is the erratic potato economy of West Bengal, one of the most risky farming bets. With a contribution of 25 per cent in India’s potato output, West Bengal is the second largest producer of the vegetable after Uttar Pradesh.

Inadequate marketing channels, manipulation by middlemen and the absence of support prices make potato cultivation in the state inherently risky.

 

BASED ON DIFFERENT STATES INDIA PRODUCES GOOD STOCK OF POTATOES.

 

WHAT DECIDES WHOLE PRICE INDEX

Inadequate marketing channels, manipulation by middlemen and the absence of support prices make potato cultivation in the state inherently risky.

THIS EFFECTS THE FARMERS INCOME AND EACH YEAR  WE CAN SEE HOW THEY CHANGE THEIR SOWING PATTERNS AND THIS EFFECTS OUR ECONOMY INFLATION.

 

UNTIL AND UNLESS GOVT OF INDIA CONTROLS  (Inadequate marketing channels, manipulation by middlemen and the absence of support prices make potato cultivation in the state inherently risky.).

for example cost of making saree is 5dollars  but when it reaches market it becomes 30 dollars now snapdeal reduces the cost by selling for 9 dollars  . which means by avoiding

(Inadequate marketing channels, manipulation by middlemen  ) cost of the product becomes less .  so why cant the indian govt  work to change the prices of  wholesale price index, consumer price index  so that they can bring down the inflation. INDIAN GOVT HAS TO HELP FARMERS IN A BETTER WAY TO REDUCE INFLATION IN INDIA.
