Brighton manager Chris Hughton believes his side at least a point in their 2-0 loss at Bournemouth on Saturday.David Brooks’ brace was the difference on Saturday as 10-men Brighton succumbed to their third Premier League defeat in a row.Despite feeling hard done by, Hughton admitted his side failed to utilize their chances in the game.“I thought we were good value to get something from the game. The difference between the two sides was they put their opportunities away and we didn’t,” Hughton told the club’s website.Pep Guardiola: “Aymeric Laporte’s injury doesn’t look good” Andrew Smyth – August 31, 2019 Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola admits Aymeric Laporte’s injury “does not look good” and fears the defender will be out for a long time.“We were good in the first half and they scored against the run of play. It was very difficult towards the end when we were down to ten men, but certainly, before that, I thought we were always in the game.“It was a wonderful strike by Brooks for the first goal, but I thought we created really good chances of our own.“If you don’t put your chances away, then you know that a very good Bournemouth side that plays with a lot of pace, with two players up front that run in behind, is going to cause you problems.“The chances are the pinnacle moments of any game, but on the balance of play, I thought we deserved more.”
Food should always be an experience. And after when we finally got to Benihana (Epicuria, Nehru Place) after days of planning it, those guys took it the ‘ninja’ level (for the want of a better word).We were seated at one end of their community tables (ones that can seat about eight; they also have private tables for four), sharing it with other two diners who sat on the other. With the hot plate open right in the middle of the table – the stage was set. Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’While the starters we ordered arrived at the table, our chef for the night – Jonathan took over the table. The main ingredient to an incredible time in Benihana is the ‘dinner show’. We call it so because it is no less than a crazy magical act that ends with you tucking in some very, very good food.All your main orders get cooked right in front of your eyes – on the table. Right from the vegetables to the rice (or noodles), the meat and the fish – Chef Jonathan whipped up a storm as we watched fascinated. With the crazy knife tricks to chopping all up at breathless speed and livening everything up with his non-stop conversation and jokes, our chef had us watching it all fascinated. Another great thing of being able to see your food get cooked in front of you is the fact that you can tell the chef exactly how you want it – and he will ask. So while my friend wanted her lamb medium rare, I wanted it well done – so there we had it, made as we wanted – on the table. Ask the chef to up the spice or keep it mild – your call, your food. Also Read – Leslie doing new comedy special with NetflixIt is mad fun and there isn’t a single dull moment in the restaurant as diners keep walking in, joining you at the table or celebrate anniversaries (the guys in Benihana will sing you an anniversary song in Japanese!). To make the best of it – go in a big group and take over an entire table, but then it is also good fun when you start talking to fellow diners about food and they start recommending things you should eat there. One of the diners at our table to us that he had just recovered from a bad reaction to prawns that landed him in the ICU, so while we encouraged us to binge on sea food (asking us to be careful all along), he played safe with the chicken and lamb. Be rest assured that no matter what you pick from their extensive menu, it is going to be quite perfect. Benihana is a very old name in authentic Teppanyaki grill eatery and they stay true to their legacy. A meal for two comes to Rs 3500 (plus taxes) at the property – head over!
Forget concocting long, complicated passwords to protect your digital devices and the precious information you access on them. They’re too easy for hackers to crack and for you to forget. Just pop Motorola’s edible “authentication vitamin” pill and you can literally become the password.Becoming a living, breathing human password is really the big idea behind the telecom company’s controversial swallowable electronic pill. A quick soak in your gastric juices turns the pioneering pill on, triggering it to transmit an 18-bit, EKG-like signal from your insides. The ingestible micro computer’s (thankfully silent) signal would then automagically unlock your smartphone and other gadgets. Yes, you’ll actively be your very own password beacon for as long as the pill is still inside of you.Related: How to Create a Super Strong Password (Infographic)And you thought external wearables were all that.Regina Dugan, former director of the U.S. Department of Defense’s Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency and current senior vice president of Motorola’s cutting-edge special projects team, is an outspoken champion of the pill, and of making the authentication process more human overall. At an event last year, Dugan said that once the tablet is swallowed, it basically turns you into a cyborg. Well, kind of.“It means that my arms are like wires, my hands are like alligator clips — when I touch my phone, my computer, my door, my car, I’m authenticated in. It’s my first super power. I want that.”Related: Imagine If Your Smartphone Had a Second, Full-Size ScreenToo bad the pill, developed with help from ingestible tech leader Proteus Digital Health, isn’t available for purchase just yet, despite successfully winning FDA approval. Dugan claims it’s “medically safe” enough to take up to 30 times a day every day.In these early days, many questions remain. How much will it cost? Will you need a prescription to get it? Does it really stop emitting a signal upon, um, elimination?Like it or not, ingestible transmitters like these are here to stay and we’re going to see a lot more of them. Pharmaceutical giants like Otsuka and Novartis have teamed up with Proteus to embed medications with sensors that will automatically tip doctors off to how well their patients’ bodies respond to meds. They’ll collect and stream real-time data like skin temperature, heart rate and who knows what else.

For many of us, the very mention of artificial intelligence (AI) conjures up futuristic notions of Skynet and the malevolent robots that rose up to destroy humankind in the Terminator film series.Related: Artificial Intelligence Is Likely to Make a Career in Finance, Medicine or Law a Lot Less LucrativeIn reality, however, artificial intelligence is already here and it’s not out to kill us — well, not yet, anyway. Our computers are smarter than most of us realize and they’re getting smarter all the time.I had an eerie moment of this realization recently when searching my iPhone camera roll for some photos of a trip to the Cotswolds in the U.K. a few years ago. I opened up the search bar and started typing the word but only got up to the third letter when an album of images popped up featuring me and my heavily pregnant wife assembling a cot for our soon-to-be-born son.What made the hairs stand up on the back of my neck was the fact that I had never given these photos a caption or category that could have indicated the content of the image. My phone had somehow “inspected” the image and identified that it indeed featured a cot.Related: 5 Reasons Machine Learning Is the Future of MarketingI quickly discovered that my phone was far from unique or special in its ability. In the weeks that followed I noticed that Facebook had begun recognizing the faces of friends in the photos I was about to post without me having to manually tag them. The AI-driven technology that underpins this somewhat unnerving development has achieved an astonishing degree of accuracy in recent years.While the ethics and practicality of artificial intelligence are still up for debate, consider these five ways AI is already influencing and impacting your day-to-day life — whether you are aware of it or not:Virtual assistants, such as Siri or Google Assistant, can not only recognize what you say in natural language but even ascertain context and intent based on your tone of voice and request history.Voice recognition technology already enables you to speak a sentence in one language and have it translated to the listener’s language in real time.Recommendation algorithms on Spotify or Amazon make intelligent suggestions of products, books or music you may like.The map software on your phone makes route suggestions based on your previous travel patterns and current traffic conditions.The spam filter in your email software that quickly learns how to discern the sorts of emails that are relevant and necessary — and which ones aren’t.Related: Want to Be More Like Amazon? Start By Making Your Startup More Data-Driven.From a commercial and business perspective, the current applications of artificial intelligence are equally striking.JPMorgan Chase recently introduced a system for reviewing commercial loan contracts, which means work that once took loan officers 360,000 hours is now completed in a few seconds.One Brazilian online retailer implemented an AI system to predict the likelihood of customers clicking on certain advertisements, allowing them to make ad placements more effective, resulting in $125 million in additional revenue.Related: A Humanoid Robot Called Sophia Mocked Elon Musk After Being Asked About the Dangers of AIOf all the commercial applications of AI, Google’s recent mapping of the exact location of every business, household and street number in France stands out as especially remarkable. Traditionally a job this enormous would have required hundreds of GPS-enabled humans to manually go suburb to suburb and would have likely taken well over a year. Using AI, Google was able to program its image-recognition software to trawl through the millions of images in its Street View database to identify street numbers. The entire process took less than 60 minutes.Computers are getting smarter with every passing day — some even predict that they’ll overtake human intellectual capacity by as early as 2029. But, AI is more than a technology that will define our future — it is impacting our present in some extraordinary ways too.
