Different phone softwares

Today I learned all about the different softwares that android and IPhones use. From what I learned, the android software is easier to use than IOS but IOS is better. I believe to get started on the journey is better with the android as you learn all the basic and is more beginner friendly to code. After you have a year or two in experience people should definitely move to IOS because I feel like it is a better program overall. It doesn’t have as much variety as android but it looks and feels better than android.

Business Models

I feel like this is one of the most rewarding business models and is very easy to set up.

The complicated life of a product manager

Today I learned about complicated the life of a Product Manager. The responsibility placed on a person that has this role is intense. Let's say that the product is not successful or has a hiccup during production or launch, most of the blame will be placed on the product manager because he/she is supposed to lead the team to success. Other than the pressure, their days are usually busy every day, working on whatever product that they are working on. I don't see this being a good role for me to do in the future but I will have to research it more and see firsthand the work that they do.

AI Worries and concerns

If you haven't been keeping up with the news, you might have missed that a scientist reported that a google AI had become knowledgeable, and feared for its life. This is relevant to what I learned today all about how you can code AI. The coding method called python is very complex compared to HTML. I now understand why these coders get paid so much for what they do, it is very hard work and very time-consuming. I learned mostly about the basics of python and I downloaded a program so that I can learn how to code it for the very first time. I will have to do more research in those this language to fully understand its power. The fear that I have with AI is that if they do become knowledgable, then basically humans have created a new life form, and my fear with this is that then maybe they might not like us a try to do harm to us, if they get that powerful.
