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 the company, the A16 Bionic is 40% faster than the competition.

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. FaceID sensors are housed in the new Dynamic Island cutout.

iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus are based on the 2021 A15 Bionic processor, but have received new photosensors.

Apple also announced a number of features, including automatic recognition of car accidents using a smartphone or smart watch.

< p>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

On September 20, 2022, the CEO of Nvidia will hold a GeForce Beyond special keynote at the GTC 2022 GPU Technology Conference.

Google is expected to showcase GeForce RTX 40 graphics cards with a new architecture codenamed Lovelace.

Google will showcase Pixel 7 with new Tensor processor< /h2>

On October 6, 2022, Google will host the Made By Google Gadget Conference.

At the event, the tech giant will unveil 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 be available immediately.

In the announcement of the conference, Google also confirmed that Pixel 7 smartphones will be equipped with next-generation Tensor G2 AI chips.

Xiaomi introduces robot chef

Xiaomi introduced the 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. The device can also be controlled by voice commands.

The price of Mijia Cooking Robot is $869 with pre-order. While the device is available in China.

Media: US restrictions will not harm manufacturers of robocars in China

US government licensing restrictions on AI chip exports won't hurt Chinese robot car makers.

According to CNBC, many electric car makers in China are using Nvidia's Drive Orin and Xavier processors for driver assistance systems. However, the 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 AI chips and autonomous driving could be subject to “strict scrutiny,” they added.

Opinion: Artificial AI threatens humanity with total extinction

Historian and philosopher Emil Torres believes that artificial intelligence threatens humanity with complete extinction.

According to him, people should be concerned about the emergence of artificial superintelligence. The power of such technology would far surpass humanity's cognitive abilities and could be the main cause of extinction due to the inability to control its actions, the scientist believes.

Torres added that AI research should be slowed down or even suspended. If scientists don't, it's up to governments to decide, he said.

Startup Creates Text Query Marketplace for Image Generators

PromptBase launched a 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 provides queries for Midjourney, DALL-E and other GAN models.

Hints cost from $2 to $5 per paragraph.

< strong>Stable Diffusion learned how to generate video

An enthusiast has created a Stable Diffusion Video text based video generator. The algorithm is based on the code of AI developer Andrey Karpaty.

The result of the Stable Diffusion Video. Data: Nathan Raw.

A 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.

Anyone can try the tool in the Colab cloud environment.

AI restored the lost painting of Vincent van Gogh

Researchers from the University of California with using AI, X-rays and 3D printing, they restored the lost painting “Two Fighters” by Vincent van Gogh.

Engineers have discovered a work under layers of paint “Still life with meadow flowers and roses.” They developed algorithms to reconstruct silhouette contours from x-ray data and mimic an artist's style. Enthusiasts used a 3D printer to print the finished work.

Scientists use AI to understand animal language

Engineers at the Max Planck Institute for Brain Research use artificial intelligence to understand animal speech.

Researchers use an AI algorithm to analyze 36,000 records of the “tweets” of naked mole rats 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 adverb emerged.

AI is used to generate the movie

German enthusiast Fabian Stelzer uses neural networks to generate the feature film Salt. The author has published a short trailer.

Stelzer used systems like DALL-E 2 and Midjourney while working on the movie. The amateur director also used a deepfake to create the effect of moving faces and a voice generator.

The plot of “Salt” revolves around a mysterious substance that looks like salt. In the process, it is revealed to be of alien origin with sinister plans.
