Like an old PC with Windows XP. Zeekr 001 electric car computer system boots up for over a minute
The Zeekr 001 made its debut at the Shanghai Motor Show this spring and attracted a lot of attention due to its design, long range of 700 km, air suspension and excellent dynamics. The manufacturer claims that a 5-minute charge will last for 120 km. The first customers started receiving their cars in November, and in December there were reports that he had a number of bugs.
Car owners keep complaining about its various malfunctions, such as software bugs, Bluetooth malfunctions, abnormal brake noises, and so on. One of the users revealed another “feature” of the car, which is expressed in a long time to start the system.
When the door is unlocked, the Zeekr logo is displayed on the screen, but after 10, 20 and even 30 seconds, the computer did not boot. Finally, after a few minutes, the system is fully loaded. Recall that the car Zeekr 01 costs 46 thousand dollars.
Weibo users comment on this feature of Zeekr 001:
- Zeekr 001 cold boot speed is comparable to the boot speed of an old Windows XP PC
- This is really the only one of its kind.
- You may need to install paid software to optimize download speed
It is worth noting that the Zeekr 001 computer system uses the Snapdragon 820A single-chip system.
Apple Music Classical app is now available for Android, but not yet available for iPad and Mac
The Apple Music Classical app for listening to classical music is finally available for Android.
Recall that the Apple Music Classical app debuted in March. It’s a standalone app that doesn’t depend on regular Apple Music, and it didn’t exist on Android until today. You need an Apple Music subscription to use the service.
Interestingly, Apple Music Classical is still not available on Mac, and there is no optimized version for iPad. In addition, the service cannot be used through CarPlay.
Recall that Apple Music Classical provides access to more than five million songs and hundreds of playlists. At the same time, unlike the usual Apple Music application, it is possible to search by composer, work, conductor, catalog number, and so on.
AI will lead to job creation, and commercial applications of quantum computers will begin soon, according to the head of IBM
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.
