Artificial Intelligence becomes more human in futuristic drama “MARJORIE PRIME”

How will the future be for man if artificial intelligence becomes more human? Find out what happens in the acclaimed futuristic drama “Marjorie Prime” when it opens September 26 in local (PH) cinemas.

Very reminiscent of the Black Mirror series, critics are saying that it could be  the series’ best-written episode yet, “Marjorie Prime” is based on a play (of the same title) by New York playwright Jordan Harrison, who had wanted to construct a play about artificial intelligence (AI) and inspired by Brian Christian’s 2011 book, “The Most Human Human: What Artificial Intelligence Teaches Us About Being Alive” which hypothesizes that computers will continue to get better at being human than humans.

At LG, your satisfaction is always a guarantee

Pleasing the customer goes beyond the completion of the sale. At LG, customer service means providing dedicated support through digital and traditional means

A customer service reformation is taking place. It is no longer just a post-sales process nor an afterthought in the consumer experience journey. It doesn’t just involve scheduling an installation or having a technician come to take a look at a problematic product. This procedure requires a lot of time and even money (some service engineers take a long time to visit the customer’s premises and sometimes even charge for the visit). Given the rapid pace of modern life, consumers would rather not spend effort to search for product documentation, make multiple calls to support helplines or wait a few days to get help with their appliances. Today’s consumers now demand quick service 24 hours a day, seven days a week—and expect an integrated, seamless, and stress-free experience the whole way.

Pacing and Practice Amp Up Coach Don Velasco’s Cycling Game

Sought-after triathlon coach Don Velasco uses his Samsung Gear Sport to improve his cycling performance
It’s no question that triathlons are challenging. Lasting hours at a time, the race demands so much from the human body across swim, bike, and run phases with little to no rest in between each phase. Triathlons require utmost dedication and preparation, and athletes who are serious about their performance are always on the hunt for the right tools and training methods.

This is where Coach Don Velasco’s scientific and data-backed methods come in. A certified ironman coach and consistent top finisher in his age group, Coach Don promotes the use of lactate and metabolic performance testing. “Lactate testing is an assessment to see how lactate or acidity builds up in your body. So as you go harder, your body generates more acidity, which in turn prevents you from going longer or going faster,” he explains.

Cancer survivor Singtongnoi Por Telakun values second shot at life

The life of a martial arts legend is never easy as the path to greatness is typically laden with a myriad of seemingly impossible challenges.

For multiple-time Muay Thai world champion Singtongnoi Por Telakun, the hardships came early in life.

Growing up in Nakhon Ratchasima, Thailand, he was raised in extreme poverty and experienced the trials and tribulations of going through day-to-day life with very little.

The grim reality became the driving force to dig his family out of the trenches and pursue martial arts in the hopes of a brighter future.

“I would help out around the house to lighten my parents’ workload. After that, I trained hard every single day. It was tiring and torturous, I wanted to quit, but I thought about my future and the people that I love. I couldn’t quit. I had to fight for the people that I love,” he recalled.
