Migrate from Google Cloud Messaging to Firebase Cloud Messaging, Stepby Step.

Image
Hi 4Geeks Nation!! If you are behind a product development, specifically a mobile app, you want to know this new tool built by Google to send messages (notifications) to your users on your product.

Google launched Firebase Cloud Messaging (FCM) as a new and more powerful tool to manage messaging to mobile devices.

Using FCM, you can notify a client app that new email or other data is available to sync. You can send notification messages to drive user re-engagement and retention. For use cases such as instant messaging, a message can transfer a payload of up to 4KB to a client app.

Look at the FCM schema... it's beautiful and useful.


So, if you are using the old Google Cloud Messaging and planing to migrate to the new Firebase Cloud Messaging, this video can help you to put all factors on the table.

Demo to Implement Google Cloud Video Intelligence API

Image
Some months ago Google showed to the world how to use their most recent video intelligence product, Google Cloud Video Intelligence API.

Ok, to get context, Cloud Video Intelligence is basically an API that makes videos searchable, and discoverable, by extracting metadata with an easy to use REST API.

You can now search every moment of every video file in your catalog. It quickly annotates videos stored in Google Cloud Storage, and helps you identify key entities (nouns) within your video; and when they occur within the video. Separate signals from noise, by retrieving relevant information within the entire video, shot-by-shot, -or per frame.

Take a look at the following video to understand the power of this tool.



If you working with videos, take your time to learn more about this API. If you are not working directly with videos, feel free to share this post with your boss... maybe it can be useful for next business strategies.

A Neural Network Playground In The Browser

Image
Well, maybe Neural Network can be a fancy or very new term. The thing is that Neural Network is the "base of" Machine Learning, and other applications like Artificial Intelligence.

A Neural Network it’s a technique for building a computer program that learns from data. It is based very loosely on how we think the human brain works.

First, a collection of software “neurons” are created and connected together, allowing them to send messages to each other.

Next, the network is asked to solve a problem, which it attempts to do over and over, each time strengthening the connections that lead to success and diminishing those that lead to failure.

Web TensorFlow Playground
So, this web tool is an interactive visualization of neural networks, written in TypeScript using d3.js. Go to http://playground.tensorflow.org to start playing just in the browser. I tested it on Google Chrome.

BTW, you can find the source here in TensorFlow's GitHub.


I would like to know if you are working on…
