Huawei Consumer Business Group has unveiled the HUAWEI P40 Pro+, HUAWEI P40 Pro and HUAWEI P40 flagship smartphones featuring cutting-edge design and ground-breaking camera.

HUAWEI P40 Pro comes with a 50MP Ultra Vision Leica Quad Camera and a HUAWEI Ultra vision sensor, a never seen before 1/1.28-inch CMOS sensor which can capture more light then even before on a Huawei device, facilitating perfect shots in low light conditions.


With its front dual camera that includes a 32MP Selfie Camera and a Depth Camera, people can take some stunning selfies with amazing details. The 40MP ultra-wide cine cameras in Huawei P40 has a focal length equivalent to 18mm and 1/1.54 inch sensor supporting 3:2 aspect ratio, which enables users to record movie 4K quality videos.

The camera can support up-to ISO 51200 light sensitivity and enable 7680 fps ultra-slow motion video. The innovative hardware in the P40 Pro synergizes perfectly with the 5th generation image signal processor (ISP) and da-Vinci based Kirin 990 NPU (neural processing unit).

While the 5th Gen Kirin 990 includes hardware support of block-matching 3D filtering (BM 3D), an algorithm facilitating noise reduction in images, the da-Vinci based NPU combines AI capabilities with algorithm to improve image processing. With AIS + OIS triple stabilization and TOF (time of flight sensor) camera, a technology using infrared lights to enhance depth, one is able to create a multi-level Bokeh effect, said the company.

The smartphone houses 4200mAh massive battery, with 40W HUAWEI SuperCharge that charges your phone back up. According to the firm, the Huawei P40 Pro will be available on shelves in Qatar on April 9.

Twitter has confirmed that its algorithms amplify right-leaning political content.

By Nikhila Natarajan

In a continuing study on the effects of machine learning (ML) on public conversation, Twitter has confirmed that its algorithms amplify right-leaning political content. "In six out of seven countries - all but Germany - tweets posted by accounts from the political right receive more algorithmic amplification than the political left when studied as a group," Twitter blogged.

"Right-leaning news outlets, as defined by the independent organisations, see greater algorithmic amplification on Twitter compared to left-leaning news outlets." Since 2016, Twitter users are able to choose between viewing algorithmically ordered tweets first in their home timeline or viewing the most recent tweets in reverse chronological order.

"An algorithmic home timeline displays a stream of tweets from accounts we have chosen to follow on Twitter, as well as recommendations of other content Twitter thinks we might be interested in based on accounts we interact with frequently, tweets we engage with, and more. "As a result, what we see on our timeline is a function of how we interact with Twitter's algorithmic system, as well as how the system is designed."

The new research is based on tweets of elected officials of House of Commons members in Canada, the French National Assembly, the German Bundestag, House of Representatives in Japan, Congress of Deputies of Spain, House of Commons in the UK, and official and personal accounts of House of Representatives and Senate members in the US, as well as news outlets, from April 1 to August 15, 2020.

Snapdeal co-founder and COO Rohit Bansal on Friday lauded a man who facilitated 64 registrations for the vaccine on the CoWin portal.

Even as India celebrates reaching a milestone of 100 crore Covid vaccine doses, Snapdeal co-founder and COO Rohit Bansal on Friday lauded a man who facilitated 64 registrations for the vaccine on the CoWin portal. In a video shared on his Facebook and Twitter page, Bansal hailed Sonu Kumar as a "citizen celebrity".

Bansal said that Kumar not only helped "just co-workers and family but complete strangers too. With patience, empathy and uncanny jugaad". He added that Kumar joined him "many moons ago" and completed his open school from a parking lot.

"Education has helped this wonderful man enable others to get India back on track. Bravo! The CoWin portal on Thursday mentioned that a total of 100 crore vaccine doses has been administered so far to the eligible population under the vaccination drive in India, nine months after the nationwide inoculation programme was started to protect the people against Covid-19.

"It's a cause of significant celebration and happiness," Bansal said in the video. He said that while people just help a few around them, Kumar "bridged the digital gap" for 64 people, who were finding it difficult to register themselves online on the vaccine portal. Kumar said he doesn't feel that he has contributed much towards the 100 crore vaccine dose count. "I have been able to help only 64 people, if I was able to help more I would have been happier."

A health worker counts antiretroviral drug tablets for a patient at The AIDS Support Organization (TASO) in the capital Kampala, Uganda, July 12, 2012.

KAMPALA, UGANDA — Uganda has kickstarted a trial for the injectable HIV drugs cabotegravir and rilpivirine. Researchers and those living with HIV say the trial will likely end pill fatigue, fight stigma, improve adherence and ensure patients get the right dosage.

The two drugs have been in use as tablets. The World Health Organization last year licensed their use as injectables.
