Google Launches Messaging App Allo

Allo is Google’s new messaging app to compete WhatsApp. Google on 21st Sept 2016 emerged in the mobile messaging market with new AI powered messaging app called Allo. App’s reliance on predictive software created a warning that it could open up user data to law enforcement. Allo’s key differentiator from most other messaging apps is that it’s backed by artificial intelligence. This enables it to offer features that are largely dependent on context and usage history. One such feature is Smart Reply, which suggests relevant responses that you can choose from to respond quickly to messages, like a simple “yes” in answer to “Are you on your way?”. App adjusts to user’s style as an emoji or written response and has tools for customising chat messages including changing emoji size and sticker choice. Alongside the end-to-end-encrypted Incognito Mode, the Allo team talked about bold new message retention practices, storing messages only transiently rather than indefinitely. Users can also avoid the logging by using Allo’s Incognito Mode, which is still fully end-to-end encrypted and unchanged from the initial announcement.

Tamil film 'Visaranai' is India's Oscar Awards entry for 2017

National Award-winning Tamil film Visaaranai, directed by filmmaker Vetrimaaran, will be India’s official entry to the Oscars in 2017. The film will feature in the Foreign Language Film category at the Oscars. Visaranai beat competition from films like Bajirao Mastani and Fan to become India’s official entry to the Oscars. “We selected Visaranai on the basis of concept, treatment and technique. There were other good films like Sairat, Bajirao Mastani, Sultan, Fan, Airlift and Udta Punjab. There was a Bengali film also in the race. The decision was unanimous,” filmmaker Ketan Mehta, chairman of the selection committee of Film Federation of India (FFI) said.
Visaranai is the ninth Tamil film to represent India at Oscars. The last Tamil film to be submitted as India’s Oscar entry was Kamal Haasan’s Hey Ram (2000). Other submissions were Nayakan, Anjali, Deiva Magan and Jeans among others. Visaaranai, starring Dinesh Ravi, Anandhi and Aadukalam Murugadoss in the lead roles and produced by actor Dhanush’s Wunderbar Films, is based on writer M Chandrakumar’s novel Lock Up. It is a violent take on police brutality and corruption that sees poor innocent men losing their lives in utterly needless conflicts.
