5 Trends for the Future in Geographic Information Systems

Geographic information science is a branch of geography that combines highly technological tools with traditional mapping methods. While much of this technology is already in use in mobile devices, cars, and transportation methods, there are many other types of ways that this technology is expected to spread in the future. Expect to see geographic information science growing into even more industries as the technology becomes more standard all over the world. Here are five future trends for geographic information science technology.

Image result for 5 Trends for the Future in Geographic Information Systems
1. Indoor Navigation
While global positioning system technology, or GPS, is nothing new, tomorrow’s outlook for GPS has its role expanding. Today, millions of people around the world use GPS to aid them with finding places in the form of driving directions. GPS is used for exterior locations only because of the nature of the satellite positioning system, and in the future, you may see positioning systems start to be used indoors. An indoor positioning system, or IPS, could help people find their way around the inside of large buildings, such as schools, universities, libraries, or stadiums using wireless signals.
2. Livestock Sensors
Geographic information science may also help the outlook of the agricultural and livestock industry. In the future, animals like cattle and chickens could be equipped with GPS sensors to help collect data for farmers and the food industry. These wearable devices may assist farmers with locating lost individual animals or with information about where an entire herd is moving. Some researchers predict that new wearable sensor technology may even be able to pick up on the signs of illness or conditions that could lead to public health hazards like salmonella being spread.
3. Traffic GPS Data
While traffic GPS data is something that is commonly used by everyday drivers working to avoid gridlock on their commute, the future of this geographic information science data may have systems and infrastructure acting smarter. Look for new types of GPS technology sensors to be placed throughout various traffic routes, such as on road signs, along side buildings, and beside other inanimate objects. Using solar power, these devices may be able to give traffic and city officials real-time data about road conditions and predictions about where accidents may occur.
4. Location Services
You may also see more use of location-based services with commercial applications and marketing for companies. With new advances in geographic information science reliability and data collection, more organizations may find location services to be easier and cheaper to incorporate in their marketing and promotion plan. Future graduates of GIS programs from schools like USC Online may help with more knowledge of 3D GIS applications for a variety of industries.
5. Social Media
Social media is another part of the future of GIS and its technologies. As social scientists learn more information about social trends and possible topics of controversy through social media, world leaders can use more strategies to manage these issues more effectively.
There are many new technologies and tasks on the horizon for GIS and other related fields. As the future takes shape, expect to see GIS being part of many new industries as well.

Nintendo Switch Possibly Underclocked; Dock to Improve Performance: Report

With information on the Nintendo Switch release date and price almost a month away, another report is making the rounds on what to expect when its finally out. It appears that console will perform better when connected to the Nintendo Switch Dock, but not due any additional processing power tacked on to the peripheral.

Nintendo Switch Possibly Underclocked; Dock to Improve Performance: Report“When the system is connected to the dock by USB-C, the system’s components will run at a higher clock speed to facilitate 1080p resolutions on the TV. Both video and power will be transferred over USB-C when docked,” reads a post from serial Nintendo Switch leaker LetsPlayVideoGames. “Plugging the system into the dock will also activate a small additional fan to help with cooling when run at that higher clock speed. This fan is in the rear of the dock, and there is a gap in the back of the dock to allow the system’s inbuilt fans to vent when docked.”

According to the site, the dock is meant to be cheap to produce and will be offered separately, allowing you to use the Nintendo Switch in different rooms if you have multiple TVs. What this means is, unlike the Wii U tablet controller that was locked to your console, you should be able to use the Nintendo Switch handheld with any Nintendo Switch Dock.

This also means that the Nintendo Switch, when used as a handheld is possibly underclocked to maintain ideal operating temperature. Nothing new considering devices like the PSP resorted to such a practice.

 Prior to this, several reports pegged the price of the Switch to be on the higher side.

“A long-in-the-works revamp to the company’s consoles — the NX, with reveal coming next week — is liable to come at a price that will result in a “major” disappointment for volume sales, the firm Macquarie says,” according to a post on investor website Seeking Alpha. “Speculation is putting the price of the new console between $300 and $350, in line with competing consoles, vs. the Wii’s former discount to rival boxes from Sony and Microsoft.”

Samsung Wins Over Apple in $399 Million Patent Appeal in US Supreme Court

Samsung Wins Over Apple in $399 Million Patent Appeal in US Supreme CourtThe US Supreme Court on Tuesday sided with Samsung in its big-money smartphone patent fight with Apple, throwing out an appeals court ruling that the South Korean company had to pay a $399 million penalty to its American rival for copying key iPhone designs.

The 8-0 ruling, written by Justice Sonia Sotomayor, held that a patent violator does not always have to fork over its entire profits from the sales of products using stolen designs, if the designs covered only certain components and not the whole thing.

The justices sent the case back to the US Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit in Washington to determine how much Samsung must pay. But they did not provide a road map to juries and lower courts on how to navigate similar disputes in the future.

Apple spokesman Josh Rosenstock said in a statement that the US company remained “optimistic that the lower courts will again send a powerful signal that stealing isn’t right.”

Samsung told Reuters in a statement the ruling was a “victory for Samsung and for all those who promote creativity, innovation and fair competition in the marketplace.”
Following a 2012 jury verdict favouring Apple, Samsung initially was hit with nearly $930 million in penalties, later cut by $382 million, for infringing Apple’s iPhone patents and mimicking its distinctive appearance in making the Galaxy and other competing devices.

Samsung in December 2015 paid its Cupertino, California-based rival $548 million. But Samsung took the matter to the Supreme Court, saying it should not have had to make $399 million of that payout for copying the patented designs of the iPhone’s rounded-corner front face, bezel and colourful grid of icons that represent programs and applications.

With the products that used iPhone designs, Samsung went on to become the world’s top smartphone maker.

Tuesday’s ruling followed a ferocious legal battle between the world’s top two smartphone manufacturers that began in 2011 when Apple sued Samsung for patent and trademark infringement. It was one of the most closely watched patent cases to come before the top US court in recent years.

The legal dispute centred on whether the term “article of manufacture,” on which design patent damages are calculated in US patent law, should be interpreted as a finished product in its entirety, or merely a component in a complex product.

In court papers, Samsung, Apple and the US government all agreed that the term could mean a component.
But Apple urged the Supreme Court to affirm the appeals court’s ruling because Samsung presented no evidence that the article of manufacture in this case was anything less than its entire smartphone as sold. Samsung, meanwhile, said that it did not have to present such evidence.

Sotomayor, writing for the unanimous court, said that the law is clear. The term “article of manufacture is broad enough to encompass both a product sold to a consumer as well as a component of that product,” she wrote.

Period of uncertainty
The justices nevertheless refused to devise a test for juries and lower courts to use to discern what a relevant article of manufacture is in a particular case, a task that could be fraught with difficulty when considering high-tech products.

“No doubt whether with Apple-Samsung, or some other design patent case, we are going to have a period of uncertainty where courts will be trying to formulate a test and what the boundaries are,” Richard McKenna, an expert in design rights at the law firm Foley & Lardner in Milwaukee, said in an interview.

In court papers, Apple said its iPhone’s success was tied to innovative designs, which other manufacturers quickly adopted in their own products. Samsung, in particular, made a deliberate decision to copy the iPhone’s look and many user interface features, Apple said.

Samsung argued that it should not have had to turn over all its profits, saying that design elements contributed only marginally to a complex product with thousands of patented features.

Design patent fights very rarely reach the Supreme Court. It had not heard such a case in more than 120 years.

The case is Samsung Electronics Co, Ltd v. Apple Inc, in the Supreme Court of the United States, No. 15-777.

RBI Relaxes 2-Factor Authentication Norms for Transactions Under Rs. 2,000

RBI Relaxes 2-Factor Authentication Norms for Transactions Under Rs. 2,000In a bid to speed up small value online transactions, the RBI today relaxed norms for 2-factor authentication for payments up to Rs. 2,000.

Relaxing the norms for 2-factor authentication requirement for transactions up to Rs. 2,000 for online CNP (card not present) transactions, the RBI said only authorised card networks will provide such payment authentication solutions with participation of card issuing and acquiring banks.

“The relaxation for AFA [Additional Factor of Authentication] under such solutions shall be applicable for card not present transactions for a maximum value of Rs. 2,000 per transaction across all merchant categories. Banks and card networks are free to facilitate their customers to set lower per transaction limits,” RBI said.

In this model, the card issuing banks will offer the payment authentication solutions of the respective card networks to their customers on an optional basis. Customers opting for this facility will go through a one-time registration process requiring entry of card details and 2-factor authentication by the issuing bank.

“Thereafter, the registered customers will not be required to re-enter the card details for every transaction at merchant locations that offer this solution and thereby save time and effort,” it said.
The card details already registered would be the first factor while the credentials used to login to the solution would be the second factor of authentication.
RBI further said “suitable velocity checks (how many such small value transactions will be allowed in a day/week/month may be put in place by banks/card networks as considered appropriate.”

In the interest of customer awareness and protection, RBI said the banks and authorised card networks offering such authentication solutions will bear the full liability in the event of any security breach or compromise in the authorised card network.

Welcoming the move, Uber India said it is a step in the right direction.

“This waiver is a big leap in the right direction to bring ease and convenience to the use of cards over cash and will strengthen the foundation for India to become a leading digital economy,” said Amit Jain, President, Uber India.

Apple to Start Publishing AI Research to Hasten Deep Learning

Apple will allow its artificial intelligence teams to publish research papers for the first time, marking a significant change in strategy that could help accelerate the iPhone maker’s advances in deep learning.

When Apple introduced its Siri virtual assistant in 2011, the company appeared to have a head start over many of its nearest competitors. But it has lost ground since then to the likes of Alphabet Inc.’s Google Assistant and Inc.’s Alexa.

Apple to Start Publishing AI Research to Hasten Deep LearningResearchers say among the reasons Apple has failed to keep pace is its unwillingness to allow its AI engineers to publish scientific papers, stymieing its ability to feed off wider advances in the field.

That policy has now changed, Russ Salakhutdinov, an Apple director of AI research, said Monday at the Neural Information Processing Systems conference in Barcelona, according to Twitter posts from those present. One attendee posted a photo of a slide from Salakhutdinov’s presentation stating “Can we publish? Yes. Do we engage with academia? Yes.”

 An Apple spokeswoman didn’t immediately respond to an email requesting comment.

Apple hired Salakhutdinov from Carnegie Mellon University in October. The ban on publication has hindered the company’s ability to hire the best talent because researchers are often less willing to work in a secretive environment where they can’t engage openly with others. To compensate for the hiring difficulties, Apple has bought a series of AI startups, spending $200 million (roughly Rs. 1,357 crores) on Seattle-based Turi Inc. earlier this year to add to half a dozen other acquisitions.
