India's 4G coverage increasing but data speed lags behind: Report 18.4.2018 Latest News
Even though 4G coverage is increasing in India and most of the telecom operators providing 4G services have crossed the 65 per cent coverage threshold, there is little improvement in 4G speeds. As per a report by OpenSignal, a wireless coverage mapping company, Reliance Jio is still far ahead of its key rivals in 4G availability, beating all three (Bharti Airtel, Vodafone and Idea Cellular) by at least 27 percentage points, Airtel has emerged as the winner in terms of data speed."In the last six months, we have measured substantial improvements in 4G availability in India, as operators have made access to LTE signals a new priority. 4G speeds, however, remained stagnant, but that could soon change as the wave of consolidation clears the way for new high-capacity networks," OpenSignal said in its State of Mobile Networks: India (April 2018) report.

AI system can create road maps from aerial images 18.4.2018 General News
MIT scientists have developed an artificial intelligence system that can automatically trace out roads from aerial images of a city. Mapping roads for navigation apps can be tedious. Even after taking aerial images, companies like Google still have to spend many hours manually tracing out roads. As a result, vast majority of the more than 20 million miles of roads across the globe have not yet been mapped. Gaps in maps are a problem, particularly for systems being developed for self-driving cars. To address the issue, researchers have created RoadTracer, an automated method to build road maps that's 45 percent more accurate than existing approaches. Using data from aerial images, the team says that RoadTracer is not just more accurate, but more cost-effective than current approaches. "RoadTracer is well-suited to map areas of the world where maps are frequently out of date, which includes both places with lower population and areas where there's frequent construction," said Mohammad ..

AI, GIS, big data helped in successful Bharat Bandh on April 2: Dalit activists 17.4.2018 General News
The Bharat Bandh on April 2 called by Dalit groups was a result of the successful use of artificial intelligence (AI), the geographic information system (GIS) and big data, according to a core group of US-based Dalit activists. The protest, which surprised many because of its sudden eruption, was organised against the alleged dilution of the SC/ST (Prevention of Atrocities) Act. New Jersey-based Deelip Mhaske, who heads a secretive network of some 100 overseas Dalit activists based in the US, the UK, Australia and the Middle East said the protest shows that Dalits no longer need to be affiliated to any political establishment. "A new era for Dalit politics has begun by adopting artificial intelligence, the GIS and social media," Mhaske told PTI in an interview as he gave an insight into how Dalit groups were mobilised during the protest. Most of these Dalit activists in the secretive group are from the IT sector and work in some of the top info-tech companies. Except for Mhaske, who ..
