Apple is on guard for user safety. AirPods Pro may get a smart system that monitors the surrounding area for dangers

Apple is working on new technologies designed to protect users. And protection in the physical sense.

The company’s new patent, titled Contextual audio system, actually describes a next-generation smart noise cancellation system. Or you can say that this is a new generation of transparency regime.

The essence of the idea is to regulate where, when and what kind of ambient sounds the user of the headphones will hear. The source says that similar technologies may appear in the AirPods Pro of any of the next generations.

It is understood that the system will miss important sounds of the surrounding space, which may in one way or another be associated with any sources of danger. For example, the sound of an approaching car, the sound of a car signal, the noise of a construction site, sirens, and so on. The system will analyze not only the surrounding sounds, but also the user’s location using GPS in the iPhone or smart watch, speed and direction of movement, and so on. In particular, when a person approaches a busy intersection, the system will track the surrounding sounds in more detail.

The system will be able to reduce the volume of music or adjust the transparency mode, and separately for each earpiece, to help the user better navigate the situation. Also, the headphones will be able to activate some kind of system alerts about a dangerous situation.

All this should help improve the safety of pedestrians and cyclists on busy city streets. True, given the above, it may happen that somewhere in the center of the city with heavy traffic and noise, the headphones will constantly let in too much ambient sounds, which may not appeal to many users.

Enthusiast created an AI damper to stop his cat from bringing dead mice and birds into the house

Enthusiast created an AI damper to stop his cat from

Smee spoke about a funny case of high technology in the UK. Martin Rozinski has moved into a new home with his girlfriend Michelle and cat Jinx. And it seems that the cat liked it so much that she decided to thank people. But she did it her way, bringing dead mice and birds right into the house. Most often this happened at night.

As a result, Martin came up with a system he called OnlyCat. It includes an AI camera that recognizes not only the cat, but also its prey. If Jinx comes with prey, then the system simply does not open the cat door for the animal. Also, a photo of the “gift” comes to the phones of the owners.

Rozinski said that this system prevented the cat from bringing 42 victims into the house, which kept the carpet clean and relieved Jinx owners from stress.

Now the author intends to bring the product to market, for which he contacted the engineering company Transmission Dynamics, where his brother works. The project is planned to be funded through crowdfunding.

12,228 stream processors, 384-bit memory bus, and 192MB fast cache. Possible characteristics of the Radeon RX 7900 XT

12228 stream processors 384 bit memory bus and 192MB fast cache

Another portion of preliminary details about AMD’s new generation 3D cards has been published on the Web.

12,228 stream processors, 384-bit memory bus, and 192MB fast cache.  Possible characteristics of the Radeon RX 7900 XT

It is assumed that the Radeon RX 7900 XT will be built on the Navi 31 GPU, consisting of one GCD module (the equivalent of CCD in Ryzen processors) with 12,288 stream processors and six MCD modules – each with 16 MB of third-level cache (Infinity Cache) and 64 -bit memory controller. In total, this gives 96 MB of cache memory and a 384-bit bus, but the use of bulk packaging technology will allow each MCD to place another cache chip, as a result, the total volume of Infinity Cahce will be 192 MB.

This is the full Navi 31 configuration, but there will also be a stripped-down version – with 10,752 stream processors and five MCDs – with 160 MB of Infinity Cache and a 320-bit bus. Such a GPU could form the basis of the Radeon RX 7800 XT.

Navi 32 is another contender for the Radeon RX 7800 XT (or more likely the Radeon RX 7800). It predicts the presence of 7680 stream processors, a 256-bit bus and 64 MB of Infinity Cache (there will be no additional cache memory chips). Finally, the Radeon RX 7700 XT can get a monolithic Navi 33 GPU with 4096 stream processors and 32 MB Infinity Cahce and a 128-bit bus.

Intel hinted at the prices of older graphics cards Arc

Intel is still keeping the intrigue and does not name the exact prices for its Arc A770 and Arc A750 video cards. However, it seems that the chipmaker himself hinted at their cost.

As noted, participants in the Xe HPG Scavenger Hunt contest can choose the Core i7-12700K and Core i5-12600K processors as a prize – this is offered as an alternative to the Arc A770 and Arc A750, respectively. Thus, knowing the recommended prices for chips, you can roughly calculate the prices of video cards.

This suggests that the price of the top-end Arc A770 will not exceed $410, and the Arc A750 – $290. Of course, this is just an estimated cost.

Note that the letters received by the participants of the event say that the cards will debut soon, but it will not be specified whether this will happen in the summer. Perhaps they will appear in the fall.

In terms of specifications, the A770 will be based on the ACM-G10 GPU with 4096 cores clocked at up to 2.5GHz. She is promised 16 GB of GDDR6 video memory with an effective frequency of 15.5 GHz, as well as a 256-bit bus.

The Arc A750 version will get the same chip but with 3584 cores. Also, the card will have 8 GB of GDDR6 memory with a frequency of 15.5 GHz and a 256-bit bus.
