PETALING JAYA, Sept 14 — Sharp Corporation has developed a device equipped with Plasmacluster technology that they claim can effectively reduce the airborne novel coronavirus particles.

A collaborative effort, the Plasmacluster technology is the result of the collaborative effort between researchers from the National Research Centre for the Control and Prevention of Infectious Diseases, Nagasaki University and Shimane University’s faculty of medicine.

The brand prides itself on the effectiveness of its Plasmacluster technology from 2004 where the technology inactivated the feline coronavirus (FCoV).

In 2005, Sharp demonstrated its effectiveness of its Plasmacluster technology against the original SARS coronavirus which caused the outbreak from 2002 till 2004 that is genetically similar to the novel coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2).

The brand has promoted academic marketing since 2000 to demonstrate the effectiveness

What is computer vision? AI for images and video

Computer vision identifies and often locates objects in digital images and videos. Since living organisms process images with their visual cortex, many researchers have taken the architecture of the mammalian visual cortex as a model for neural networks designed to perform image recognition. The biological research goes back to the 1950s.

The progress in computer vision over the last 20 years has been absolutely remarkable. While not yet perfect, some computer vision systems achieve 99% accuracy, and others run decently on mobile devices.

The breakthrough in the neural network field for vision was Yann LeCun’s 1998 LeNet-5, a seven-level convolutional neural network for recognition of handwritten digits digitized in 32×32 pixel images. To analyze higher-resolution images, the LeNet-5 network would need to be expanded to more neurons and more layers.

Today’s best image classification models can identify diverse catalogs of objects at HD resolution in color. In addition to pure

It wasn’t that long ago that the phrase “how to curve text in MS Paint” became a popular internet meme. The joke was that it was impossible. Microsoft Paint never did have the ability to curve text boxes. 

But the truth is, the basic Microsoft application isn’t the only graphics app that doesn’t support curved text. Many photo editing and graphic-creation apps still can’t make a situate a row of text in a rounded shape.

Despite being way more advanced and highly popular free graphic design
