1. Artificial intelligence (AI) biometrics
A known problem with biometric technology is that many fingerprint identification systems falsely reject a person’s fingerprints – when the scanned fingerprints are checked against the database no matches are found.
Artificial intelligence (AI) biometrics overcomes this problem using dynamic profiling – the system learns by using AI about a person’s fingerprints on every scan. This means a person doesn’t have to worry about getting their finger in exactly the right place every time on the scanner. The system learns from the different alignments and is therefore still able to match the fingerprints to those stored on a database.
Facial – recognition systems have the same problem. A human being is still able to recognize a face even if the person has grown facial hair, now wears glasses or has aged. Computerized facial- recognition are confused by such soft biometric changes. New systems use AI to learn from scanning a number of faces and can pick out these soft biometric features. This means the system can still recognize faces and cross – reference these attributes with corresponding images stored on the database.
Other AI biometric technologies are being developed, so these security systems become increasingly more reliable.
A computer-assisted translation tool facilitates the translation process by resolving the text into smaller, translatable segments. It organizes these segments of text in a manner which makes it easier for the translator to translate the text effectively, and makes the process of translation time-efficient. The segments can be recalled later on and thus the translator ensures that the terminology and writing style of the original is followed. It also provides savings when the material that needs translation is similar to previously translated material – you only pay for part of the sentence that has changed.
Computer-assisted translation, computer-aided translation or CAT is a form of language translation in which a human translator uses computer software to support and facilitate the translation process.

6. 3-D and Holographic Imaging
The Digital Holography and Three-Dimensional Imaging meeting provides a forum for science, technology, and applications of digital holographic, and three-dimensional imaging and display methods. Topic areas include interferometry, phase microscopy, novel holographic processes, 3D and novel displays, integral imaging, computer generated holograms, compressive holography, full-field tomography, and holography with various light sources including coherent to incoherent and X-ray to terahertz waves. This is a highly inter-disciplinary forum with applications in biomedicine, biophotonics, nanomaterials, nanophotonics, and scientific and industrial metrologies.
An e-reader, also called an e-book reader or e-book device, is a mobile electronic device that is designed primarily for the purpose of reading e-books and digital periodicals. An e-reader is similar in form, but more limited in purpose than a tablet. In comparison to tablets, many e-readers are better than tablets for reading because they are more portable, have better readability in sunlight and have longer battery life.
An online newspaper is the online version of a newspaper, either as a stand-alone publication or as the online version of a printed periodical.
Going online created more opportunities for newspapers, such as competing with broadcast journalism in presenting breaking news in a more timely manner. The credibility and strong brand recognition of well-established newspapers, and the close relationships they have with advertisers, are also seen by many in the newspaper industry as strengthening their chances of survival.
