Jabir Mohammed who in their respective statement blamed Setalvad for instigating them.reluctant fundamentalist?is where the film faltersand adopts some of the stiltedness of Hamids slim novel The tacked-on staginess is Nairsand it is most evident in the movies book-endsif you like The beginning and the end take place in Lahorewhere Changez has engaged his visitorthe blue-eyedstraw-haired husky American Bobby (Schrieber) in a conversation that loops back and forth in timeover tea and old fashioned Lahori courtesy laced with menace This is where the thriller part of the film is meant to be concentratedand this is where it gets flabbyfocusing on a kidnap-and- rescue operation which ends badly But where Nair is deliciously spot on is when Changezhopeful of a great future in the UStakes his first tentative steps into his workplace andalmost simultaneously a life-altering romance His interactions with his boss (Sutherland) show us a bright sharp young fellow who could have fit right into the cut- throat practice of making people redundant But his tentative steps towards finding the love of his life in Erica (Hudson) makes him more aware: he sees both sides of his selfand finds he is not in step with the country that could have been home Nairs film speaks to the complicated times we live inin the way it shows us an America whose own responses went into a tailspin after the Twin Towers came down: either you were with them in their war against terror or you were against them Changezs very reluctant fundamentalist shows that there is a place in between that is getting larger and largerand that both victims and aggressors are people with their own sets of beliefs The films that have come out post-9/11 have been many and variousbut Changezs conflicted individual at the centre of the narrative feels both vital and important Ahmed does a good job of Changezespecially when he is alongside Hudson who is real and hurtful and hurting He has pride but he is contained in Americaand liberated in Lahore Or is he And shestill smarting from the wounds of the pastif she will not find love with Changezwill she ever I was invested in these characters I wanted to know what happens to them The presence of Shabana and Om lift The Reluctant Fundamentalist in the way only supremely seasoned actors can: as Changezs ammi and abbuthey give us a sense of where he comes from And the sounds of Coke Studio Pakistan that layer the film are outstanding: Nair has always had a ear for musicand here those sounds really add to the experience The film could have done with more finesse in the way it begins and endsbut there are enough subtle shifts in the main act to keep me with it After Monsoon Wedding and The NamesakeThe Reluctant Fundamentalist is Nairs most engaging work

DeepMind acquisition is starting to pay off New hardware launches from Alphabet Inc’s Google on Wednesday showed how the acquisition of London-based artificial intelligence company DeepMind might start to generate revenue rather than just research papers Alphabet bought DeepMind for a reported $400 million in 2014 The firm has produced a steady stream of machine learning research – from teaching software to play the strategy game Go better than any human on the planet to creating artificial intelligence that mimicked the human brain’s ability to dream and even imagine future actions Most of these breakthroughs however have seemed academic with potential commercial uses seemingly years or even decades away In the first year Alphabet owned the company DeepMind reported zero revenue But when Google showcased its new digital assistant Wednesday in its flagship Pixel phone laptop computer and Google Home devices the company noted how much more natural its computer-generated voice had become That more human-sounding speech at least when the assistant speaks in English and Japanese is thanks to an algorithm DeepMind invented last year and which it took from research to full-scale commercial application inside twelve months When DeepMind first published a 2016 paper on WaveNet a new way of using software to generate speech tests showed that human listeners rated it more natural-sounding than existing technologies by a 50 percent margin But the method was too computationally intensive Even DeepMind’s own researchers said the system was “not something we could deploy in the real world” Over the past year it found a way to make the WaveNet algorithm 1000 times faster while also allowing it produce even higher fidelity sound This results in computer speech that human listeners judge to be almost indistinguishable from a real person’s voice These efficiency improvements – run using data centers equipped with Google’s new computer chips – have allowed the company to deploy WaveNet into its new assistant This clarity will be useful for DeepMind’s bottom line Since joining in 2015 Google’s Chief Financial Officer Ruth Porat has been on a mission to drive down costs across Alphabet forcing some of Google’s more left-field projects to show a path to profitability DeepMind continues to remain independent from its parent company but its contribution to Google’s product launch is well timed It reported its first-ever revenues – 40 million pounds ($52 million) in 2016 – from products and services it supplied to other Alphabet companies according to filings made public on the UK business registry Companies House on Monday This is just one example of how DeepMind is starting to help Google Some others that DeepMind has been willing to talk about include supplying algorithms that have helped Google boost the energy efficiency of its data centers by 15 percent and also improvements to Google’s core ad words product that DeepMind says it cannot detail Of course hiring all the brainpower to produce those algorithms means that DeepMind is still shelling out far more cash than it takes in The company reported that “staff and other related costs” equaled 104 million pounds in 2016 and the company reported an overall loss of 94 million pounds nearly double the amount it reported the year before For all the latest Technology News download
