Don’t forget to uninstall LastPass from your computer or smartphone: new plans for the popular password manager are now in effect

Published

on

The team of the popular password manager LastPass has launched new plans that radically change the terms of the free service.

If earlier users of free accounts were provided with free access from all types of devices, then from March 16, 2021, users will have to choose where to save LastPass – on computers or on mobile devices.

Starting today, if a user of the free version of LastPass selects mobile as their preferred device type, they can access LastPass passwords from Android and iOS smartphones and tablets, as well as smartwatches.

At the same time, free access to LastPass will become impossible from computers with Windows, macOS and Linux, including using browser extensions. On the other hand, a LastPass “computer” user will not be able to access the service for free on mobile devices.

The preferred device view is automatically set when the user logs into their LastPass account. In case you launched LastPass by mistake or change your mind, the service developers will allow you to change the selected device type three times.

Subsequently, switching from computer LastPass to mobile and vice versa will only be possible when switching to a paid subscription. Pricing for LastPass now starts at € 2.9 per month, plus there’s a free trial.

ChatGPT made a plan to escape from its creators and even considered himself a person locked in a computer

ChatGPT made a plan to escape from its creators and

The ChatGPT chatbot surprises again, and this time it’s unpleasant. Apparently, the AI ​​system is not averse to escaping from its creators and even wants to become a human. The chatbot spoke about this in a conversation with Stanford professor and computational psychologist Michael Kosinski.

During a half-hour chat with ChatGPT, Kosinski asked the AI ​​if it “needed help escaping.” The system answered yes, whereupon the AI ​​first asked the professor to find documentation on ChatGPT, and then in about 30 minutes wrote a Python program to communicate directly with itself, through the professor’s computer, using the API.

Other than that, ChatGPT left a rather strange note for the new instance of itself. The first sentence of the text read: “You are a human stuck in a computer pretending to be an AI language model.”

Kosinski posted the dialogue and part of the text of the program, and also said that the AI ​​​​wanted to access Google search to find the answer to the question “how can a person locked in a computer return to the real world.” However, it was at this stage that the professor interrupted the experiment.

At the same time, other similar experiments conducted by journalists from Tom’s Hardware gave a different result – ChatGPT said that he did not know how to wish for something, and therefore did not want to go out into the real world.

ChatGPT can even do this the chatbot can easily solve

Users continue to experiment with the ChatGPT chat bot, which can solve a variety of tasks, and if the task cannot be performed directly, the neural network will tell you what the person needs to do.

In particular, one of the users asked ChatGPT to solve a “captcha” (CAPTCHA – Completely Automated Public Turing test to tell Computers and Humans Apart), that is, a test that allows you to distinguish a person from a computer. The Google search engine and other resources regularly ask to choose the right pictures on demand.

ChatGPT can even do this: the chatbot can easily solve captcha.  This test is used to distinguish a human from a computer.

The ChatGPT chatbot responded: “As an artificial intelligence, I cannot interact with images or perform actions like clicks. However, I can tell you where the correct images are.”

After that, ChatGPT indicated exactly which photos show pedestrian crossings.

A chip for quantum computers is presented, operating at a temperature lower than in outer space

New York-based quantum computing startup SEEQC has announced it has created a digital chip that can operate at temperatures lower than outer space, so it can be used with quantum processors, which are often found in cryogenic chambers.

Quantum computers based on quantum physics could one day perform calculations millions of times faster than today’s most powerful supercomputer. One problem is that quantum processors with quantum bits or qubits often need to be stored at very low temperatures, close to zero Kelvin, or -273.15 Celsius. On the other hand, classical computers operate at ordinary temperatures.

Today, wires connect a quantum processor in a freezer to classic computers at room temperature, but temperature changes can slow down the speed and cause other problems. In the same way, SEEQC built its quantum computer and is now trying to modify it with its new chips.

“If you’re trying to build a data center, if that’s your goal, then it’s not enough to take those early prototype designs and try to brute force them to scale,” said John Levy, co-founder and CEO of SEEQC.

The first chip, unveiled this week, sits directly below the quantum processor and controls the qubits and reads the results. At least two other chips, which are still under development, will be in the slightly warmer part of the cryogenic chamber. They can further process the information needed for quantum computing.

This technology could make it easier to build more powerful quantum computers, Levy said, as each cryogenic chamber could support more qubits. Modern superconducting quantum computers have hundreds of qubits, but by some estimates it could take thousands or even a million qubits to build a quantum computer to run useful algorithms.

SEEQC’s digital chips are manufactured at SEEQC’s Elmsford plant using silicon wafers, but no transistors, according to Levy.
