Intelligent Personal Assistant
A VIRTUAL ASSISTANT is a software agent that can perform tasks or services for an individual. Sometimes the term "chatbot " is used to refer to virtual assistants generally or specifically those accessed by online chat (or in some cases online chat programs that are for entertainment and not useful purposes). As of 2017, the capabilities and usage of virtual assistants is expanding rapidly, with new products entering the market. An online poll in May 2017 found the most widely used in the US were Apple\'s Siri (34%), Google Assistant (19%), Amazon Alexa (6%), and Microsoft Cortana (4%). Usage of the smart speakers powered by these assistants is radically different; Apple didn't even announce its smart speaker until June 2017. Facebook 's M expected to be available to hundreds of millions on Facebook Messenger in 2017

Augmented Reality
AUGMENTED REALITY (AR) is a live direct or indirect view of a physical, real-world environment whose elements are "augmented" by computer-generated sensory input such as sound, video, graphics or GPS data. It is related to a more general concept called computer-mediated reality , in which a view of reality is modified (possibly even diminished rather than augmented) by a computer. Augmented reality enhances one’s current perception of reality, whereas in contrast, virtual reality replaces the real world with a simulated one. Augmentation techniques are typically performed in real time and in semantic context with environmental elements, such as overlaying supplemental information like scores over a live video feed of a sporting event. With the help of advanced AR technology (e.g

DIGITAL PHOTOGRAPHY is a form of photography that uses cameras containing arrays of electronic photodetectors to capture images focused by a lens , as opposed to an exposure on photographic film . The captured images are digitized and stored as a computer file ready for further digital processing, viewing, digital publishing or printing. Until the advent of such technology, photographs were made by exposing light sensitive photographic film and paper, which was processed in liquid chemical solutions to develop and stabilize the image. Digital photographs are typically created solely by computer -based photoelectric and mechanical techniques, without wet bath chemical processing. Digital photography
