Files Safe Folder gif 2
Next Billion Users Graphic for Files Safe Folder Pranay Bhatia Product Manager, Next Billion Users Joris van Mens Product Manager, Next Billion Users Published Aug 5, 2020 In many places around the world, sharing a personal device with spouses, siblings or children is often a cultural expectation, especially for women. Sharing a device can be beneficial, but it comes with the risk that others might access your personal files. As part of Google’s research, we hear the perspectives of people like Shaina—a woman in Bangladesh whose children use her phone after school, both to learn and to play. Shaina worries that her important files could be accidentally shared or deleted. For Rashid, a father in India, the lack of privacy means he can’t keep his identity documents on his phone, even if he needs them for job applications.  Building privacy features that make sense for different needs is atop priority for usas wecontinueto work towards a more inclusive internet. To keep personal content more safe, we're launching Safe Folder, a new feature inFiles by Google. How Safe Folder works Safe Folderis a secure, 4-digit PIN-encrypted folder that protects your important documents, images, videos and audio files from being opened or accessed...

It takes a lot of drive to get creative work done. We went out (!) to the premiere of the film The Outside Story at Rooftop Films’ Brooklyn Drive In at the Brooklyn Army Terminal. The writer/director Casimir Nozkowski was there, as well as stars Sunita Mani from Neflix’s GLOW, Olivia Edward from FX’s Better Things, and Michael Cyril Creighton from HBO’s High Maintenance. The movie also stars Brian Tyree Henry from FX’s Atlanta and Sonequa Martin-Green from Star Trek: Discovery. The movie was a fun love letter to Brooklyn, highly recommended!

Delivering security and privacy for Exchange on Android

For many Android users, Microsoft Exchange is the backend for their company email. Until recently, many email applications on Android used Device Admin capabilities to enforce the necessary security requirements on users’ devices, whether they were issued by their company or personally owned. These APIs, which we began deprecating in Android 9 Pie, gave IT control over core security features such as device passcode requirements and remote data wipe. While this gives IT admins controls to promote data protection on the devices when using Exchange email clients, it also adds unnecessary complexity. We've worked closely with Microsoft to create a new set of APIs that give email developers tools to secure their apps while adhering to the high standards we've set in Android for user privacy. Google and Microsoft work together for user privacy We teamed up with Microsoft to build a new way to offer the security that IT needs when using Microsoft Exchange, while offering the privacy employees have come to expect on personal Android devices. IT admins have the option to require a user to follow a specified level of password complexity (options are for high, medium or low) to use their Exchange email app. If they don’t...

New York Scary Tale-Fall In The Spring

New York Scary Tale-Fall In The Spring

Life Happens Faster Than I Draw. copyright 2020 JGB Eric falls down a lot. As a result, he’s learned to sense when it’s happening and usually roll onto his back with a competence that a butoh dancer would admire. (I know this being a butoh dancer.)Sometimes though on the gravelly sidewalks he catches a little of what he calls “road rash” — minor scrapes and bruises. I sometimes try to catch him, as the Cure song goes, but other times it happens before I can grab him, or while I’m distracted by something else going on around us in the streets. I curse my slowness and my spaced-out, schizoaffective nature when this happens, although I’m often taking note of several things on going on that he missed. “Did you see that one? How about her? Him?” Usually when this happens, a number of people rush to offer help, hovering over us a little uncertainly. The “decent human being” instinct is to help someone who’s fallen, and part of me is happy to see that it still exists, but my dear husband hates this kind of help, even from me when this happens. “I’m fine! I can get up!” He’ll shout. Eric...

Fascinated about manga? Wanted to contribute to it with machine learning?

An important and basic step towards recognising character is first detecting face. For detecting faces in humans is simple there are many algorithms which work best for this purpose but for manga there are very few, From my search what I found is using this state of art algorithm and modifying a bit can able to reach 98% accuracy. Detecting faces is important because the amount of digital manga read per day is growing very fast and almost all manga conventional black and white series are only publishing the digitalized version. For searching manga in the web they are just using meta tag, to overcome this drawback I personally find this state of art paper helpful. Let’s get into the algorithm part! First, selective search algorithm is applied to the manga page and then region of interest is given to CNN, it further classifies the region into face or not face. Source code is available in Github. Wondering what is selective search algorithm? Let me explain.To be short it is just like a combination of exhaustive search and segmentation, Exhaustive search is nothing but it just goes to every part of the image with fixed size window and search for the...
