With tons of obligations we rush to do every day, we often feel like we don’t have enough time to do everything. And just when you need your phone to finish something important – the battery is dead. How many times has this happened to you? You begin stressing out as you don’t have enough time to wait for your phone to charge. What can you do?

Airplane mode is the answer!

We are all aware that we should use this mode while flying, as it disables Bluetooth, GPS, Wi-Fi and other signal-transmitting technologies due to safety reasons. But even if you are on the ground, this mode can be extremely useful, especially for people who are constantly in a hurry. Did you know that airplane mode can actually extend your battery life, and if turned on while you are charging your phone it will reduce the charging time.

By disabling signals such as Wi-Fi, airplane mode consequently disables all the background applications that are active as soon as the phone picks up a Wi-Fi signal. These background processes significantly slow down the charging process, thus, when your phone is in the airplane mode, it takes less time to charge.

So, the next time you have just a little window of time to charge your phone, and you are in desperate need of it, head off to the settings, and enable airplane mode. You won’t be able to text or receive calls, but your phone will be ready for use much faster.

Can Technology have Biases Like Humans?

Technology has taken a vantage leap in providing solutions for man. Before now, technology used to appear complex and would require a great deal of expertise to handle solutions available. Today, we have technology applicable in the simplest human activities as smart products with intelligent algorithms powering them as they make error-free judgments and provide intelligent and analytic solutions.

Does technology have all the answers?

This article from Credit Suisse, tells us that technology does not have all the answers because it has been found to exhibit “similar biases,” as humans. No one can discredit the impact of technology, but it is not totally free of human input and this is the reason we experience these biases in many areas we have technology holding foot.

Creating technological solutions transparently

This article suggests that the process of creating technological solutions be made transparent and subject to contribution from many people who would end up as users of the product – male, female, young, old, learned, unlearned and all other preferences as we have them. It also underscores the importance of having women on product development teams. This approach is not sure to eliminate all forms of bias, but it is a good way to start in order to appraise the full benefits of technology.

Technology as the connecting tool

Technology so far has been a major connecting tool amongst us humans. It is used and appreciated by all regardless of race, language and sex. In order to keep it less subjective to these arguments about human biases. I believe we should gather opinions on products and solutions before making them available to the public. This could be done by gathering input from intended target users and receiving feedback across the stages of production.

“Recognizing the problem is a start…success will depend on inclusive technologies that meet this vast untapped market.” This cannot be more apt especially at a time when we look up to technology for solutions. We should not muzzle our progress with technology by battling algorithm bias. The first way to avoid this battle is by reading this article here.
