Would you rather have a power-hungry cellphone that could software-decode hundreds of video codecs, or a hyper-efficient system-on-chip that only processes H.264? These are the tough decisions mobile designers have to make, but perhaps not for much longer. MIT's Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory has developed a solution that could spell the end for inefficient devices.
It is rumors like these that give fuel to the whispers that Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 810 just might not be up to scratch . Word is out that LG is not giving up on being a player in the processor industry, even after the high-profile failure of its second effort, the NUCLUN processor for the LG G3 Screen .
Yann LeCun is director of artificial intelligence research at Facebook, and founding director of New York University’s Center for Data Science.He is the author of more than 180 academic papers, and has created character recognition technology widely used by banks to verify checks.
High school students in Tennessee can see and manipulate ocean plankton under a superhigh-resolution microscope in Southern California, with a biologist in California serving as their tour guide.Surgeons in Cleveland and Los Angeles share insights and run through a simulation of brain surgery on a biologically exact image of the patient’s brain just before the real operation begins.
Just because you're not splurging on a top-of-the-line smartphone doesn't mean that you have to settle for a tiny amount of storage. Samsung certainly thinks that way -- it justannounceda 3-bits-per-cell flash memory chip that promises 128GB of storage in "mass market" (read: more affordable) mobile devices.
Iconic Swiss watch maker TAG Heuer , who was first speculated to enter the smartwatch scene last September, might finally be announcing just that tomorrow. But its foray into the technology space might come at a price, both literally and figuratively.
There's no question that the tech world is an overwhelmingly male place. There's legit concern that tech is run-amok with "brogrammers" that make women programmers feel unwelcome . On the other hand, people just want to laugh.
You'll see a lotmoreinstancesofroboticarmsin the news, but it doesn't mean high-tech prostheses forthe lower limbsdon't exist. The Cyberlegs project, for instance, is developing robotic legs that can help amputees move and walk more naturally.
You've probably heard no end ofhype for 4K videoon TVs and computers, and now it's about to invade your phone... at least, so long as ARM has its way. The company just took the wraps off of Cortex-A72, a processor reference design that promises a huge boost to computing power, especially when graphics come into play.
About a year afterPopcorn Time'sdeath and resurrection show, comes news that the app is taking evenmoreof the legwork out of watching pirated movies online. To further stretch the meaning of "legal," the service is moving to a peer-to-peer streaming system so that its userbase (which is apparently growing by 100,000 downloads per day) hosts the requisite data,according toWired.
When I first heard about this little pen, offered by PenPower, that could scan and translate on the go, I couldn’t wait to get it into my hands. I began thinking of all the possible ways I could use this to copy written word, and/or translate text to be used on my computer or any device.
Tesla CEO Elon Musk is making good onhis promiseto "end range anxiety" for Model S owners today with an over-the-air software update that packs in two new features: Smart trip planning that plots routes along its charger network, and alerts for when you're getting out of charger range. The trip planning feature is even intelligent enough to know if a charging station is full or out of service.
Google's search tools on Android started digging up results fromAndroid appsa while back. Now, thesearch app on iOSdoes the same. When you enter a query into the main Search app or the Chrome browser on an Apple device, the list of results will include the appropriate links to iOS apps.
HTC has indeed finally revealed the One M9+ , the symbol, not the word, and so far all of the leaks and tips have been pretty much spot on, leaving nothing to the imagination. Perhaps except for one rather surprising item. The One M9+ would have almost trumped the One M9 in almost all aspects save one. The processor.
Details surrounding the rumored color display-toting Pebble have leaked this morning just hours before the final, official reveal by the company itself. This smartwatch is very similar to its predecessor, this time coming with a display that includes color.
Step aside, graphene, "silicene" is the trendy new nano-material in town that could one day supercharge future tech. Scientists havecreatedthe world's first transistor out of the silicon-based material, and it's a mere one atom thick. Unlike itsmuch-malignedgraphene cousin -- which has yet lived up to its vastpotential-- silicene is a much more interesting material for computer scientists.
This is a crowdfunded project, and as such may not deliver what its creators initially promise. Most crowdfunding sites, like Kickstarter and Indiegogo, have policies about what happens to your money if the project fails to deliver on its goals, but choosing to back a project is inevitably a risk.
