On September 25th, eMan presented its services at a professional fair in the USA for the first time ever, in a conference on automotive displays in Livonia (Michigan). The conference is pretty technical and has a strong focus on hardware solutions, but it provided us the opportunity to connect with experts and decision makers from great companies working in the infotainment field.
The user enters her smart car. Her favorite playlist starts playing, a message is sent to her family, a notification of low fuel pops up with a suggested gas station that has the lowest prices and is along the way. This isn’t Sci-Fi, this is an everyday reality. What technologies make this possible and why is infotainment the most important part?
Artificial intelligence has almost unlimited potential and it’s being used more every day. That’s why it’s important to get to know it. We’ll show you how to train AI using a convolutional neural network so it can recognize an eMan duck in a mobile app. Let’s get down to business!
The summer season is upon us, the water’s just right and all the beer stands are beckoning you for a cold one more persuasively than at any other time of the year. It’s that time of the year when the sun is up really early and goes to sleep quite late, and you’ll probably read our blog only on your phone on the way home from summer beer gardens. That’s why we’ll also ease up a little and instead of posting another technical article, we decided to write about a different, more entertaining topic that’s more suited for summer.
We already know how to create dialogues and use Dart. In the last article of this series, we will finally get to the creation of a more complex app. We’ll also discuss how to tackle the support of a platform dependent app. Let’s do this!
This year eMan once again participated in the Bike To Work competition. And we rocked it; we won the title of Prague’s most bike-oriented employer of 2018 and our COO Michal Kosek is this year’s second-best performing cyclist. What did our teams experience during their rides and how did we support them?
eMan is no stranger to the most important Czech competition evaluating the effectivity of digital projects. This year we took first place in the energy and utility category with our E.ON EContracts solution. And our Škoda OneApp came second in the mobile apps category.
“To repeat the selection, press star.” Automated voices and being on hold tend to irritate most of us. For quite a long time, self-service apps were considered a nice plus but nowadays they are becoming the foundation of outstanding customer care. Why is that and what can be done about it?
The last article of this series will present the fingerprinting method. It does not use actual fingerprints but rather prints of wireless networks around a building. This will allow us to determine a location with a to-the-room accuracy in the building. Let’s see how it’s done!
“So you just play with the app?” was a question I received from one of my friends after telling him that I’m a Software Tester, followed by “I can do that!” which made me wonder a bit. Quality Assurance is not just about wildly clicking on every button in the app, at least not for us at eMan.
