We have Siri and numerous other apps and utilities that we can use voice commands on, but did you know Google is one of them? Here Digital Information World and Trendblog share the best Google voice command hacks:

Today, the average web surfer can search for a number of differently phrased words or keywords related to a specific topic and still come up with a plethora of great information from a myriad of sources. However, the world wide web wasn’t always so easy to navigate; there was once a time when one had to know the exact wording of a website’s title to find what they were looking for they. A search for “social media” didn’t prompt the search engines to provide the user with related topics and keywords, and adding a URL to an engine’s index sometimes took months to complete. But, many thanks to evolving technology and the search engines’ star Google who made this process much better and easier, where you even don’t bother to type your quires, now with the help of Aladdin’s Magic Lamp you just need to command the genie with your voice and he will bring instant results that will be quite accurate according to your desire. So here are 60+ voice commands for Googlers to use the search engine giant more efficiently, go ahead, say the magic words or tap the hell out of that microphone button and try them out yourself!

    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.
