Is China Leading In Building An AI Driven Future With 5G?

5G will be the thing of the coming years. If I’m understanding what is really going on, 5G can actually allow the plethora of devices to communicate with each other effortlessly. A quick search on Google yields that 5G is 20 times faster than 4G. Whether this is true or not, one thing is true is that devices can speak to each other way faster than before. This opens up more innovation and infrastructure demands.


The video above shows that China is heading in the direction where more machines will replace humans in labor-intensive jobs. The day when we need an extra pair of human hands may be over sooner than later because smarter machines with AI capability can actually think for themselves and carry themselves in jobs effortlessly. Nonetheless, AI machines without 5G will be like a pony just starts learning how to walk.

5G will allow AI machines to transfer data fast and constantly so that things can speed up even more for decision making, planning, communication and so much more. I think with 5G, self-driving car technology is much more believable since you can have many self-driving cars detect each other easier at once with reliable faster 5G data transfer. Furthermore, smart highways and roads are going to get better and more fitting for self-driving cars because 5G will allow faster communication between the cars and the traffic infrastructures.

If you’re guessing I don’t know what I’m talking about, you may be right. After all, 5G is so new and I haven’t seen it firsthand or use it in real life. Nonetheless, according to the information I could Google, 5G is 20 times faster than 4G. Right now I’m using 4G on my smartphone but I think 4G is already quite fast. I can imagine how crazier it could get if I got 5G.

A day ago I briefly encountered an article which described how 5G could destroy the need for the cloud. Then I briefly read over the article’s comments that displeased how the article’s author was too lacking of knowledge since the commenters didn’t see how 5G could destroy the cloud since the cloud is about centralization of data storage.

Personally though, I don’t see how centralizing storage like the cloud could go away since data redundancy is always a priority, especially in the age of AI which is driven by data. Of course, all bets are off when AI becomes self-conscious since such AI needs no human data to drive its own logic. Until then, the cloud stays important.

I also think that 5G could allow the decentralization of networks to become a thing too! How come? Local devices and storages will be able to talk faster to any other storage and device across the world — destroying the needs of having to plan and engineer a network that is catering to the importance of distance. Although we already in the age of information where distance isn’t as relevant as the 19th century for communication, but 5G may make distance even more irrelevant when it comes to data communication.

Basically, instead of waiting for minutes for a movie to be downloaded onto your device, you may only have to wait for a few seconds to have your movie when you use the 5G network. 5G data can cross secure communication channel much faster and more reliable since faster data transfer allows faster data integrity check and whatnot. Perhaps, we could see shopping, banking, and other important financial related activities across the world on the world wide web to be more reliable and faster — better experience overall!

In summary, I think 5G will be awesome! I would love to see not only cellular network but also home network to be able to transfer speed that is as fast as 5G or better. This way, everything will be on the same pace and everyone will be using faster Internet speed. What’s not to like when you can get a whole 4K movie to be downloaded in a few seconds, right?

Equifax Got Hacked, Affecting 100 Million Plus Consumers!

Hot off the press, hackers were able to gain unauthorized access to Equifax’s consumer data, potentially affecting almost half the United States population, roughly around 143 million consumers.  Equifax promises to allow affected consumers free credit protection.  I don’t know the extent of such protection.  Will such protection help consumers fight bad credits due to nefarious activities through this hack?  Equifax is also cooperating with the authorities to figure out the mastermind behinds this hack.  Also, Equifax has hired professionals to help them tighten up the security and clean up whatever might be left behind in their system by the hackers.  Anyhow, Equifax’s CEO is explaining and assuring his customers in the video right after the break.

12,000 Startups Are Being Created Every Day In China by Internet Loans

Internet loan companies like Prosper are very few in the United States, but in China these companies are too numerous to count.  These loan companies are less regulated in China, and so the growth of the Internet loan sector is incredible.  Basically, these less regulated Internet loan companies are responsible for at least 12,000 startups every day in China.  Sometimes, it takes as fewer than few minutes to find the funding for a loan.  Some loans can also go up to millions of dollars.  The risks for these loans are there even though the Internet loan companies are doing fine at the moment.  Nonetheless, as we all know the world is full of uncertainties, and so risks are risks.  Sometimes, scam could be created from scammers who target loan companies to bilk out money from everyday investors.  In short, these Internet loan companies rely on Chinese citizens’ greed to provide the funds for both new and old, big and small businesses.  Some struggling businesses, whether they’re big or small, got a second chance through these Internet loans, because traditional banks couldn’t handle the appetite for such risks.  Anyway, check out the video after the break to see the details on how Internet loan companies in China are growing.  Enjoy!

The Future Is Here, Bot To Answer Those Pesky Telemarketing Calls

Cold calls from telemarketers are annoying, and I don’t pick these calls up at all.  In fact, my so called traditional home phone line is often being ignored when the phone rings.  So called traditional isn’t so traditional, because VOIP is what it is.  So, the fact that someone has built a bot just to keep a cold caller on the phone for as long as possible is making my day.  I got a blast from watching the YouTube video which demonstrates how a bot got a cold caller confused, amused, and annoyed.  Check out the video right after the break.  Enjoy!

Vidxr, New To Go Place For Music Videos

I’m just releasing Vidxr.com, and this will be the to go personal music video playlist weblog for me.  Of course, while adding more awesome music videos to Vidxr, I hope you can check Vidxr out for some enjoyable music video time.

We’re living in a digital age where most things can be shared digitally.  Vidxr is made possible by content sharing features provided by various online services such as YouTube.  Thanks to these web services, I’m able to form Vidxr.

As time goes on, I hope that I will be able to make Vidxr a very likable music video weblog.  If you like what you’re seeing with Vidxr, please let everyone knows about it.  Thank you very much!
