Download Google Play Store 8.0.26 APK for Android

Google researchers have revealed a machine learning algorithm that is helping it clean up apps on the Play store that unnecessarily collect sensitive user data.

Gambling apps have always been available to install on Android, but the additional step of having to side-load the app from an untrusted source has likely put many people off. Allowing gambling apps to be installed from a trusted source such as Google Play which can test for a large portion of nefarious code that could be loaded into an app available from just anywhere is preferable for user safety as pointed out by Google. Nonetheless, it appears as if Google's head-start won't be able to stop Apple from swooping in and owning the mobile-based augmented reality market outright.

It's reassuring to see that Google is doing its part to minimize the number of intrusive apps in the Play Store.

Précédemment, on entendait parler d'un capteur en face avant pour la reconnaissance faciale. Il serait donc assez naturel de voir le matériel des appareils d'Apple évoluer en ce sens.

A feeble attempt to compensate for the lack of availability of gambling apps via Google Android was Betcade, a one-stop shop for developers to list real-money gambling products for Android, an experiment which barely lasted a year. At a later date, Google imposed prohibition on real-money apps.

Daniels added: "Upon submission, developers will be required to provide documentation for the apps, including licences for the countries they're looking to target".

The time spent using those apps is increasing, the report said: from almost 100 minutes per day in Q1 2015, to over 110 minutes in Q1 2016, it reached over 130 minutes per day in Q1 2017. However, in the real world developers face more work by following the principle and receive few rewards for doing so.

It seems like there is no getting away for malware from Google's machine learning and AI.

After organizing apps into peer groups, Google uses these clusters to spot "anomalous, potentially harmful signals related to privacy and security, from each app's requested permissions and its observed behaviors". All the more impressive is that even existing iPhone owners will be able to enjoy advanced augmented reality apps without the need for supplemental hardware.
