Want to know why players stop playing your game? An incredible algorithm created by Silicon Studio, a video game company based in Japan, will tell you not only why they stop, but also what day and what stage during the game. It sounds impossible, but the algorithm, called Survival Ensemble, takes inspiration from models used for medical research and biology. The model uses a thousand submodels, which all examine different outcomes based on different situations. África Periañez, head of data science at Silicon Studios, explained: “Already from their first days playing the game, we know with a good degree of certainty what level a user will reach and how many days it will take them.

google translate china

Google has introduced a new version of its Translate app which will be available to Chinese users through the iOS App Store, and via a direct download link for Android users. Google services as a whole aren’t available in China, and the Translate app’s new release represents the first official release of a product since Google left China in 2010. Translate has been available as a web-based service, but the app itself has only been available to users with a VPN, which circumvents Chinese online censorship. Google is playing down the release’s significance, saying Translate has long been available in China, and it’s now, “making it work better for Chinese users.” In a blog post, published in both English and Chinese, Google writes: “With today’s

facebook stories

Facebook has introduced Your Story mode to the main Facebook app, following on from a story mode in Instagram, and the similar Status feature in WhatsApp. All have been directly influenced by Snapchat’s Story mode, and work in the same basic way — shared pictures and video expire after a set amount of time, and can be widely shared, or with specific people. A Your Story button has been added to the top of the Facebook app’s main screen, along with a Direct button for personal sharing. Filters are added to photos using the Facebook Camera mode. Stories shared this way won’t automatically appear in your News Feed unless you post them. Facebook’s filters work on iOS and Android, and in addition to a range

Approximately 5,200 mobile games have been approved for release in China over the last eight months, following the introduction of stringent new rules for developers to follow in July 2016, and a substantial drop over the 15,000 released in 2015. The data comes from a blog post by Niko Partners analyst Daniel Ahmad, detailing how the system has changed mobile game publication in the region. The regulations, introduced by China’s State Administration of Press, Publication, Radio, Film and Television (SAPPRFT), are complex and time-consuming, with some titles taking three months for approval. Foreign developers wanting to navigate SAPPRFT’s regulations must work with a Chinese publisher throughout the process, ensuring localization, marketing, and operation is handled correctly.
