    • Don't spoil Desktop Software Engineers with your Mobile First solutions, think about it


      English translation of Philip Ranzim's post at his blog page here. (With author's permission)

      Once upon a time, my girlfriend started using Instagram. She asked me to sign up for it and subscribe to it. I tried — I couldn't do it because you couldn't register at Instagram from a desktop computer. I then thought — how weird people are. Well, what kind of fool would make a software product that can't be used with a normal computer? They won't succeed, and this Instagram will be a marginal service for a bunch of strange women, who for some reason don't like desktops.

      It has only been a few years, the market has put everything in place — and the biggest fool was me. And the geniuses at Instagram predicted how and where everything would develop. Today, most of the user applications are made primarily for mobile platforms. At best, they include a universal web client, which is still optimized for mobile phones. Because users love iPhones, not computers. Business people sat down, counted, and made a decision — let's make more money, let's have mobile First everywhere.

      • How to save energy with BARY: Smart Home

        • Translation

        Well, every modern person has at least once wondered: for how much longer can you pay such huge utility bills?! I am no exception. Electricity, gas, heating, water, rent, elevator, removal of solid waste, etc. etc.

        One of the reasons (far from the last) of creating the BARY application was the ability to collect statistics, analyze and reduce energy consumption. Europe has long passed into the regime of total economy; I think this fate will not bypass us. Therefore, to prepare for this in advance definitely will not be superfluous.

        I now propose that we examine how we managed to optimize the cost of electricity along with BARY: Smart Home.

                  Hello, my name is Andrey Sergeyev and I work as a Head of IoT Solution Development at Mail.ru Cloud Solutions. We all know there is no such thing as a universal database. Especially when the task is to build an IoT platform that would be capable of processing millions of events from various sensors in near real-time.

                • Как с помощью HUAWEI ML Kit самостоятельно создать апплет для фото на документы

                    Общая информация

                    В предыдущей статье мы рассказали о том, как создать камеру для улыбок с помощью HUAWEI ML Kit. В этот раз я собираюсь представить вам новую функцию HUAWEI ML Kit.

                    Вас когда-нибудь просили на учебе или работе принести фотографию определенного размера с цветным фоном для документов? В большинстве случаев у человека не окажется под рукой подходящей фотографии. Однажды в институте нам решили оформить персональные пропуска, но фотостудия оказалась закрыта. Тогда я сфотографировался на телефон, использовав простыню в качестве фона. И получил выговор от преподавателя. Но с помощью инструмента HUAWEI ML Kit вы сможете интегрировать SDK для сегментации изображений в ваше приложение и разработать апплет, чтобы создавать фото на документы самостоятельно и решить проблему отсутствия нужных фотографий.

                    Самое главное, что этот SDK абсолютно бесплатный и работает на всех телефонах на базе Android.

                    Разработка апплета для фото на документы самостоятельно

                    1. Подготовка

                    1.1 Добавьте репозиторий Maven Huawei в файл на уровне проекта build.gradle

                    Откройте файл build.gradle в корневом каталоге вашего проекта Android Studio.

                  • What is a CRM system and how to choose it correctly

                    • Translation

                    In modern business the need of automation in various processes have already become commonplace. It is already becoming difficult to imagine a warehouse or accounting without the use of specialized software. The representatives engaged in trade use a special application for registration and sending the order to office directly from pads or mobile phones. Mostly the orders that are ordered from the website are delivered in the form ready for processing. But at the same time customer relationships, at least in the medium and small business for some reason, very often maintain without the integration of automation and sufficient attention to the account.

                  • Neural networks in reality

                    The mass of news and articles about artificial intelligence creates the illusion that we are living in a fantastic time. But when you start asking everyone what exactly is useful in real life from these high technologies, the answers come down to some Google features, mobile games and a story about Chinese videos. By the way, oh, these Chinese videos — for some reason, they are constantly shown by the central mass media when they demonstrate Moscow's intellectual technologies.

                    In words, it seems, all the «intellects» are installed already everywhere, the whole country has long been transferred to neural networks, but only in some kind of demonstration pictures, in diagrams, on fingers. There is a mental dissonance — why not take a video camera and shoot at least a fragment of how Russia's super mega technologies work?

                    As Nikita Sergeevich said, «science ceases to be self-indulgence when its fruits are applied in the national economy.» And today's artificial intelligence is familiar to us only from games. Many people really want to see something useful in reality. Therefore, we were not too lazy and recorded our video of the operation of neural networks from real objects.
