How Is Internet of Things (IoT) Changing Social Media?

Social media is probably the biggest treasure trove of data the world has ever seen. People interact with their friends and family members on it almost constantly. Social networks monetize that data and break it up into various categories, which are then used for marketing purposes. 

With the involvement of IoT in social media, that mountain of data is only going to get bigger. As a result, social media will experience many changes. Already, the implementation of certain IoT practices has shown great results. Here are just 3 ways in which IoT is changing social media.

11/05/2020, Dallas // KISSPR //

Java has been historically maligned by its own users. However, it’s still one of the most popular programming languages in the world. Why? The short answer is because it’s useful. Java coding has led to enterprise applications, Desktop applications, and web and app servers. It’s still being used today to design games and embedded systems and even serve big data. 

Why is Java Popular?

IoT brings together a lot of technologies to create a network on machines and applications. It’s the technology that will make smart cities and smart homes possible. We are seeing small applications for it with smart hubs and smart speakers. Individual machines that will make IoT possible include autonomous vehicles and voice assistants. However, there is less talk of which programming languages will make the IoT revolution possible. 

Most Useful IoT Programming Languages 

According to the Eclipse Foundation’s 2017 and 2018 IoT Developer Surveys, these are the top IoT programming languages. 

The reasons why these haven’t budged over two years is because they’re so popular and so fitted to IoT. Java is still used in many Android OS applications. C is a basic, but low

Computer model explains altered decision making in schizophrenia — ScienceDaily

Scientists have built a computer ‘brain circuit’, or artificial neural network, that mirrors human decision-making processes and sheds light on how circuits might be altered in psychiatric diseases, a new study published today in eLife reports.

The model identifies a potential mechanism for the impaired decision making that is commonly seen in schizophrenia, involving the reduced activity of molecules in the brain called NDMA receptors. These results provide new insight that may inform the development of future treatments for neuropsychiatric conditions.

“A major challenge in psychiatry is to relate changes that occur at nerve synapses in the brain to the cognitive processes that cause symptoms of disorders such as schizophrenia,” explains lead author Dr. Sean Cavanagh, who is an MBPhD student at the UCL Queen Square Institute of Neurology, London, UK. “Computational modelling of brain circuits can fill in these gaps. By altering the circuit model at the synapse level,

Phil Spencer Explains Why Microsoft Doesn’t Need You To Buy A New Xbox This Holiday

Microsoft’s next-generation strategy is not traditional. Microsoft kinda doesn’t care if you even buy a new Xbox Series X or S console because the company also releases its games on PC and mobile, while it also has Xbox customers on Nintendo Switch and PlayStation. Xbox boss Phil Spencer has now shared some additional insight on this unique strategy.

Speaking to GameReactor, Spencer said Microsoft wants to create Xbox customers, and that doesn’t necessarily mean on a dedicated gaming console.

“Our high-level goal inside of our team, of how we measure ourselves, is how many people are playing on Xbox,” Spencer said. “And when we say ‘playing on Xbox’ it doesn’t mean an Xbox console. It means somebody who is logging in and playing a part of our ecosystem, whether first-party or third-party. And it could be on an Android phone. It could be on a Switch. It could be on
