Tehran Times - - TECHNOLOGY - By Alireza Kho­rasani

Here are high rated IT ti­tles in the world that reviewed by savvy tech users:

1Repub­li­can Rep. Mar­sha Black­burn’s Se­nate cam­paign announcement ad has been blocked by Twit­ter over a state­ment the abor­tion rights op­po­nent makes about the sale of fe­tal tis­sue for med­i­cal re­search.

Black­burn, who is run­ning for the seat be­ing opened by the re­tire­ment of Ten­nessee Sen. Bob Corker, boasts in the ad that she “stopped the sale of baby body parts.”

2IBM is en­gaged in a cou­ple of un­usual ef­forts to en­cour­age law­mak­ers to pro­tect “Dreamers,” and pass leg­is­la­tion that pro­tects them from de­por­ta­tion.

IBM em­ploys 31 Dreamers and is fly­ing them to Wash­ing­ton to meet with law­mak­ers di­rectly.

3Nvidia an­nounced that it has cre­ated the world’s first ar­ti­fi­cial in­tel­li­gence com­puter to make self-driv­ing “rob­o­taxis” a re­al­ity. The Nvidia Drive PX Pe­ga­sus has been de­signed to han­dle the most-so­phis­ti­cated driver­less cars of the fu­ture — the kind that won’t even have a steer­ing wheel or a gas pedal.

4AI as­sis­tant Cor­tana is now avail­able on Skype, Mi­crosoft an­nounced.

Cor­tana on Skype can chat ei­ther one-on-one, like you would with any friend, or be sum­moned into con­ver­sa­tions to han­dle tasks like sched­ul­ing events, find­ing nearby restau­rants, or shar­ing IMDB movie re­views. Cor­tana for Skype will be­gin to roll out to­day for iOS and An­droid users in the United States, ac­cord­ing to a blog post.

5Sony is plan­ning to ad­dress with a new PSVR model that will in­clude at­tached ear­buds, but that could get groddy if you share the de­vice with enough friends and fam­ily. But that’s where Bionik’s Man­tis VR head­phones come in. They snap onto any PSVR and act like in­te­grated head­phones, and you don’t even have to scrape them against your ear­wax.

6Google has dis­cov­ered Rus­sian op­er­a­tives spent tens of thou­sands of dol­lars on ads on its YouTube, Gmail and Google Search prod­ucts in an ef­fort to med­dle in the 2016 U.S. pres­i­den­tial elec­tion, a per­son briefed on the com­pany’s probe told Reuters.

7LG Elec­tron­ics has opened a ded­i­cated web­site for its smart home plat­form SmartThinQ for devel­op­ers. Devel­op­ers can visit the site to ap­ply for a part­ner­ship, and if suc­cess­ful, will gain ac­cess to the plat­form’s ap­pli­ca­tion pro­gram­ming in­ter­face (API).

If ap­proved as a part­ner, their ser­vices and prod­ucts can also carry the “Works with SmartThinQ” brand­ing.

8The Brazil­ian gov­ern­ment has launched a na­tional strat­egy de­tail­ing the policies and ac­tion plan for the de­ploy­ment of In­ter­net of Things (IoT) tech­nolo­gies in the coun­try.

The four core ver­ti­cals are Smart Cities, Health­care, Agribusi­ness and Man­u­fac­tur­ing. The plan fore­sees that these policies will be im­ple­mented be­tween 2018 and 2022.

9“If GCHQ is to con­tinue to help keep the coun­try safe, then pro­tect­ing the dig­i­tal home­land - keep­ing our cit­i­zens safe and free on­line - must be­come and re­main as much part of our mis­sion as our global in­tel­li­gence reach and our round-the-clock ef­forts against ter­ror­ism,” Jeremy Flem­ing, the direc­tor of GCHQ wrote in an ar­ti­cle for The Tele­graph.

10Mark Zucker­berg uses Face­book to visit Puerto Rico in VR.
