Artificial intelligence will create new business opportunities and lead to economic growth that will create new jobs, according to IBM chief executive Arvind Krishna.
Krishna said he believes the net effect of AI on employment will be “job creation” rather than job destruction, although it will replace humans in certain jobs.
On Sunday, IBM announced plans to invest $100 million in a joint research project with the University of Tokyo and the University of Chicago in an attempt to build a 100,000-qubit quantum supercomputer in 10 years.
“Japan has accumulated a lot of experience in the field of quantum computing, accumulated over decades,” said Krishna. — Physicists, engineers and materials scientists are working on different aspects. Many people may not realize how deep Japan is in these areas.”
He predicted that quantum computing technology would advance step by step as part of a collaborative project in the next decade, with commercial applications starting in three to five years: “This is the time when people will be solving some problems that are probably too expensive or impossible for conventional computers. To do this, we need between 4,000 and 10,000 qubits.”
In quantum computing, a qubit, or quantum bit, is the basic unit of information, just like a binary bit is in conventional computers.
The size of China’s computer industry has exceeded a third of a trillion dollars. Beijing has supplied more than 20 million servers to the market in six years
According to the Chinese Academy of Information and Communications Technology, over the past six years, Beijing has supplied the market with more than 20.91 million general purpose servers and 820 thousand servers based on artificial intelligence technologies.
The volume of China’s computer industry in 2022 amounted to more than $362.2 billion. This became known at the World Computer Conference 2023, which opened in Changsha, Hunan Province, Central China.
The conference is dedicated to the topic “Digitalization of the world to create a new era of change in the computer industry.” Its participants discuss issues such as digital infrastructure, artificial intelligence and smart society.
“The new generation of information and communication technology has changed the model of economic and social development,” said Zhao Zhiguo, chief engineer of the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology.
Apple beat everyone again. The A17 Pro SoC in the iPhone 15 Pro and Pro Max is manufactured using a 3 nm process technology and is capable of running modern computer games
Apple iPhone 15 Pro and 15 Pro Max smartphones are known to have received the A17 Pro SoC, and this is a very interesting platform that is currently unique on the market.
It’s worth starting with the fact that this is the first mobile single-chip system and, apparently, the first consumer chip in general, which is produced using the 3 nm process technology at TSCM facilities. Previously, information appeared on the Internet that Apple had purchased all orders for some time regarding this technical process.
The SoC configuration includes only six processor cores: two productive and four energy-efficient. There is also a 16-core NPU and a new six-core GPU. The last one is especially important here. Apple says this is the largest GPU redesign in iPhone history. Compared to the GPU in the Apple A16 Bionic, the new one is 20% faster. But at the same time, it supports hardware acceleration of ray tracing, and MetalFX Upscaling technology allows you to relieve the graphics core. And all of this together is enough to run full-fledged computer games on the new iPhone Pro: Resident Evil Village, Resident Evil 4 Remake, Death Stranding and Assassin’s Creed Mirage! Yes, we have yet to evaluate the quality of graphics, resolution, etc., but this takes mobile gaming to previously unprecedented heights.
WhatsApp native app for Mac released – with group calls
The team of the popular WhatsApp messenger has announced good news for Apple computer users – a native application for macOS has become available.
The new and improved WhatsApp app, which was released earlier in 2023 for Windows, is now available for macOS users, according to the developers.
Group video and audio calls are available for the first time in the new WhatsApp app for macOS. Up to 8 people can participate in video calls, and up to 32 people in audio calls. Users can also view the call history and receive notifications of incoming calls even when the application is closed, share files by simply dragging them to the chat, and so on.
The new app is now available for download on WhatsApp.com and will be coming to the App Store soon.
