If you are like me, you don’t like making videos often from scratch, due to all the hassle with software, uploading, editing and so on. Well you will like this news. It’s now possible to make videos with your iPhone by using the new Adobe Voice app. You can download it here
Basically, you can create a video and then add your voice to it, then publish it. It’s part of Adobe Slate, check out this video, which explains it:
AI, or Artificial Intelligence, is quite the hot topic currently. But nobody has specifically mentioned web design and development jobs being in danger from AI, so I figured I would bring it up 🙂 If you are new to this subject, there are various YouTube videos, which will clarify things for you. I’ve posted a few below.
However, you don’t have to start applying for a job at McDonald’s yet, so relax. In my opinion, most web designers and developers are used to evolving, we tend to change with whatever hits us. First it was Dreamweaver, then CMS now AI, Robots!
But I think we will end up in control of AI, rather than the other way round, and they will help us complete things faster, just as Dreamweaver, Joomla! and WordPress does now. Although, if they get smarter than us then who knows?
According to many of the leading AI scientists, it’s clear that AI is gaining ground in many ways. When you see Google, Facebook and other massive companies taking notice, then you know it’s no longer just in the realm of science fiction. But I also would hope all these companies and government agencies have the sense to make sure, or at least try to make sure, that AI does not get out of hand.
This could be accomplished by making sure what they develop has a fail-safe, just in case something goes wrong. It’s possible, however, that when AI gets far more intelligent than humans, and they will, they will simply find a way around our barriers, because they will be many times smarter, and therefore anything we think of they will find a better way.
I would like to hear your comments on this subject, do you think Robots will take our jobs 🙂
Here’s a couple of videos on the subject, which I think you will enjoy. The last one on the list is by far the most important.
This short video will show you how to add a user to your Google analytics account so that you can give them access within their own account. This method allows them to access your Google analytics via their own account instead of you having to give them full access to your Google analytics account.
You might hire a web marketing firm to do your reports or run analysis on your traffic, in this case it’s sometimes a new company that you have never dealt with before, in which case it’s very important that you do not give them direct access to your account instead use the method provided in this video as it’s much safer.
This is a short video about how to optimize an image for your website correctly, using PhotoShop. In this video I use PhotoShop CS3, however it is the same for older versions going back to PhotoShop 6.0 so you don’t need a new version of Photoshop to do this.
