Rumor has it that Smart Shot is the name being given to Sony’s attachable smartphone lens cameras, the DSC-QX10 and DSC-QX100. This release will come alongside the debut of Sony’s flagship smartphone, the Xperia Z1.

Similarly unconfirmed reports have the DSC-QX100 using the same sensor as used in the RX100 Mark II. The DSC-QX10 lens will include a larger 10x zoom and a 1/2.3-inch 18-megapixel CMOS sensor.

Compatible with Android and iOS devices, the Smart Shot comes complete with lens stabilization and full HD-video capability. To top it off, you can use the lens even if it’s not attached to your smartphone. Attached or otherwise, photos taken are saved to the lens and phone. Then, using editing and social apps, you’re able to make changes and share your photo instantly, over Wi-Fi.

Can Technology have Biases Like Humans?

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.
