It's very empowering that individuals are currently putting more consideration into advances that will engage the individuals who generally can't exploit all the extravagant devices and programming that this era has' available to it. All things considered, even individuals with in-capacities may need to go on the web, use Facebook, or watch features on YouTube. That is the reason endeavors like Samsung's Eyecan+, really in its second era as of now, are welcome increments to the gradually adding to number of available items that bring these individuals and engineering closer together.

Samsung Electronics presented Eyecan+, the organization's second-era eye mouse that permits individuals with handicaps to form and alter archives and peruse the web through straightforward eye movement. Eyecan+ is the first of its kind, as it doesn't oblige clients to wear any gadget, for example, glasses. Rather, Eyecan+ is a solitary unit, compact box that sits underneath the screen, and works by remotely aligning with the client's eye.

Eyecan+ tracks eye movement and can be aligned to a particular client's eyes. It comes as box that sits underneath the machine screen so that the client won't be compelled to a particular position. He or she can utilize Eyecan+ whether taking a seat or resting, the length of the screen and the crate are inside sight.



 EYECAN+ requires the user to be situated between 60cm and 70cm from the monitor. Selecting is carried out by centering the eyes on a particular symbol and what might as well be called a mouse click is an eye squint. Eyecan+ makes 18 commands accessible, each of which can be arranged to a particular activity or a general console blend. The interface pops up as either a rectangular menu board or an outspread menu.

The utilization of every one of the 18 orders singularly based on eye  movement and blinking, and each one can be chosen by looking straightforwardly at the applicable symbol and squinting once. The 18 commands incorporate “copy,” “paste” and “select all,” as well as “drag and drop,” “scroll” and “zoom in.” Additional custom commands can likewise be made to incorporate existing keystroke orders, for example, "close program" ("Alt+f4") and "print" ("Ctrl+p").

Contrasted with its ancestor, EYECAN, Samsung's first eye mouse that was presented in March 2012, the alignment affectability and general client experience (UX) of Eyecan+ have been fundamentally updated, to some extent on account of Hyung-Jin Shin, a graduate understudy in software engineering at Yonsei University in Seoul. Conceived quadriplegic, Shin had worked with Samsung on EYECAN between 2011-12, and tackled a key part in creating the Eyecan+ UX by guiding the eye mouse throughout the span of 17 months and widely meeting expectations with Samsung designers to guarantee the prospering exhibit of capacities and commands stay viable and simple to get to and utilization.

One fascinating bit about Eyecan+ is that Samsung, however it creates the innovation, won't really market it. It will make a few boxes to be given to philanthropy associations. Rather, it will be open sourcing the configuration of Eyecan+ so that other people who do wish to make one or even market it will have the capacity to do so.

The Samsung Eyecan+ is, obviously,  by all account not the only diversion around the local area. Sesame is an alternate such endeavor that is looking for subsidizing and confirmation on Indiegogo right now. The distinction is that Sesame is generally a product execution, using a Nexus 5 as the fittings and utilizes both head following and voice orders to control the cell phone.

Two groups of scientists have developed an accurately image defining software that can recognize and explain the image, photographs and video in as accurate and perfect way as humans do, sometimes even mimicking human levels of understanding.


Until now this ability was just limited to image recognition and recognizing individual data. The software entirely described the scene at Google and at Stanford University last Monday. Example: flock of sheep grazing and running down hill. As per its working ability, it writes the caption in English language describing the scene.

Ending 10 year long partnership with Google, Firefox has changed its default search engine from to Yahoo in the United States.


"I'm thrilled to announce that we've entered into a five-year partnership with Mozilla to make Yahoo the default search experience on Firefox across mobile and desktop". "This is the most significant partnership for Yahoo in five years," announced, Yahoo Chief Executive Marissa Mayer. 

 

This shift has been looked upon as massive shift and yahoo's need of more search traffic is supposed to be fulfilled by Firefox! This is indirectly good news for Microsoft who is powering Yahoo search technology.

From the month of December this change will come in Firefox for US based users. And for all yahoo search users, yahoo will implement a new search technology and user can experience clean, modern and impressive search experience.

At the same time yahoo has agreed to respect users preference of "not to be tracked" technology available in Firefox.

In the more than 10 year long partnership with Google, Firefox, with its million users performing billion search every year, was one of the greatest source of traffic for Google.

 

Google was funding Mozilla primarily from the portion of revenue that it shares and on 2012 search revenue shared was $311 million. The new financial details of Yahoo's Firefox contract weren't disclosed. Mozilla CEO Chris Beard mentioned that eh new deal will improve the economic terms of Mozilla Corporation and it will help them to enhance their mission of advancing the desktop web browser.

 

Yahoo meanwhile is trying its best to reclaim and regain its previous dominance in web search. Now Google will not have to share its search revenue with anyone as it has its own default search browser.

 

For Firefox this is a a chance where it will support the default search providers in many different countries. Previously Google provide default services across the world. If someone wants another search engine as their default, they can switch to other using Firefox’s other search providers like Google, DuckDuckGo and Bing. Firefox will also struck search deal of Baidu's search engine in China and Yandex in Russia.

 

This deal is also a coup for Yahoo. Search has always been major priority of Yahoo. In recently completed quarter, Yahoo made more money from Search advertising than other display advertisement which is traditionally the company's biggest revenue contributor.

 

The new design shown by Yahoo in gif make it feels like the new search display are more visual based then its previous portal. The look is also quite similar to Google's search engine result pages.

 

Sharing about 10% of browsers on desktop computers, mobiles and tablets compared to over 33% for Google Chrome in October, it seems like Yahoo has taken another risk to get back its share in search market. For now this is really unclear, whose gain is this or whose loss. Will this make a major appreciable gain for Yahoo or loss for Google, who has been a major player in browser through popularity of chrome?
