Apple introduced iPhone 14 Pro with A16 Bionic processor
Apple introduced iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max with the new A16 Bionic processor.
The chip contains a 16-core neuroprocessor that processes up to 17 billion operations per second, as well as a 5-core video accelerator. According to company representatives, A16 Bionic is 40% more productive than competitors.
Smartphones are equipped with new photosensors and a Super Retina XDR display with a brightness of up to 2000 nits and a refresh rate of up to 120 Hz. The FaceID facial recognition sensors are located in the new Dynamic Island cutout.
iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus built on the 2021 A15 Bionic processor, but received new photosensors.
Apple also announced a number of features, including automatic recognition of car accidents using a smartphone or smart watch.
In addition, the company introduced the new Apple Watch and AirPods Pro 2.
New items will go on sale within two weeks. Smartphones range from $799 to $1,599, Apple Watch $249 to $799, and AirPods Pro 2 $249.
Nvidia teases GeForce RTX 40
September 20, 2022 CEO of Nvidia will hold special report by GeForce Beyond at the GTC 2022 GPU technology conference.
The company is expected to show GeForce RTX 40 graphics cards with a new architecture codenamed Lovelace.
Google will introduce Pixel 7 with a new Tensor processor
October 6, 2022 by Google will hold conference Made By Google dedicated to gadgets.
At the event, the tech giant will showcase the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro smartphones, the Pixel Watch smartwatch, and new Nest smart home devices. According to the company, all the gadgets shown at the conference will immediately appear on sale.
In the announcement of the conference, Google also confirmed that the Pixel 7 smartphones will be equipped with the next generation Tensor G2 AI chips.
Xiaomi introduced a robot chef
Xiaomi company introduced kitchen robot Mijia Cooking Robot with artificial intelligence.
The device has 35 different functions – from grinding spices to frying food. The cooking process is controlled by the CookingIoT AI algorithm, which automatically calculates the temperature and the required time.
The robot is equipped with a touch screen, where more than 200 recipes are available to users. You can also control the device using voice commands.
Mijia Cooking Robot is $869 pre-order. While the device is available in China.
Media: US restrictions will not harm manufacturers of robocars in China
U.S. government licensing restrictions on AI chip exports won’t harm Chinese robocar makers.
According to CNBC, many electric vehicle developers in China are using Nvidia Drive Orin and Xavier processors for driver assistance systems. However, new US government restrictions apply to the A100 and H100 chips used for supercomputing and artificial intelligence.
There are no restrictions associated with Xavier and Orin, according to sources, and manufacturers like Xpeng or Nio will be able to purchase these processors. However, in the future, US suppliers of chips for AI and autonomous driving may be subject to “close scrutiny,” they added.
Opinion: artificial AI threatens humanity with complete extinction
Historian and philosopher Emil Torres believes that artificial intelligence threatens to mankind complete extinction.
According to him, people should be concerned about the emergence of artificial superintelligence. The power of such technology will far exceed the cognitive abilities of mankind and may become the main cause of extinction due to the inability to control its actions, the scientist believes.
Torres added that AI research needs to be slowed down or even suspended. If scientists don’t do this, governments must decide, he said.
A startup created a text query marketplace for image generators
PromptBase Company launched text query marketplace for image generators.
The platform allows engineers to sell tips that will help those who wish to create pictures and reproduce a certain art style or subject using AI algorithms. The site presents requests for Midjourney, DALL-E and other GAN models.
Suggestions cost between $2 and $5 per paragraph.
Stable Diffusion learned how to generate video
The user can use multiple queries or different versions of the same hint. Based on them, the system will generate a video by interpolating the latent space of the Stable Diffusion neural network.
try out tool everyone can in the Colab cloud environment.
AI recovers lost Vincent van Gogh painting
University of California researchers using AI, X-rays and 3D printing restored Lost painting “Two Fighters” by Vincent van Gogh.
Under layers of paint, the engineers discovered the work “Still Life with Meadow Flowers and Roses”. They developed algorithms to reconstruct silhouette contours from x-ray data and mimic an artist’s style. To print the finished work, enthusiasts used a 3D printer.
Scientists use AI to understand animal language
Engineers from the Max Planck Institute for Brain Research involved artificial intelligence to understand the speech of animals.
The researchers used an AI algorithm to analyze 36,000 records of naked tweets. diggers from seven colonies. According to them, a huge amount of social information is hidden in this everyday “conversation”.
Scientists have found that all rodents have their own voice signature, and each colony has a special dialect that has been passed down from generation to generation. Also during times of social instability, including the overthrow and replacement of the queen, a new style of dialect appeared.
AI is used to generate a movie
German enthusiast Fabian Stelzer uses neural networks to generate the feature film Salt. The author has published a short trailer.
While working on the film, Stelzer used systems like DALL-E 2 and Midjourney. The amateur director also used a deepfake to create the effect of facial movement and a voice generator.
The plot of “Salt” revolves around a mysterious salt-like substance. In the process, it turns out that it has an alien origin with sinister plans.
