AMD t0 Launch A M0nster 7nm CPU With 64-C0res

We all kn0w very well that AMD (Advanced Micr0 Devices) last year renewed alm0st all its pr0cess0rs. H0wever, n0w acc0rding t0 the latest rep0rts, AMD (Advanced Micr0 Devices) an American multinati0nal semic0nduct0r c0mpany has decided t0 launch a m0nster 7nm CPU with 64-c0res.

 AMD last year renewed alm0st all its pr0cess0rs. N0t 0nly did it launch the Ryzen and Threadripper f0r individuals with l0w, medium, high and enthusiastic ranges, but it has als0 started t0 seri0usly challenge the giant chip manufacturer Intel in the server market with its Epyc pr0cess0rs. Acc0rding t0 the latest rum0urs, these Epyc w0uld be even m0re “epic”.

AMD Epyc R0me: 7 nan0meters in 2019 and with brutal 64-c0res

These Epyc pr0cess0rs, c0denamed “R0me”, w0uld n0t arrive until 2019 and w0uld be the substitutes f0r th0se wh0 w0uld arrive this year. While 2018 will pr0bably be based 0n Ryzen 2 t0 12 nan0meters, the R0me 0f 2019 w0uld be based 0n Zen+, the new architecture that w0uld dr0p t0 7 nan0meters, and that will debut the Ryzen next year.

The Epyc pr0cess0rs, which beat the Intel Xe0n in all price ranges, were the resp0nse 0f AMD after being rem0ved fr0m the server market f0r a decade, and where Intel has d0minated as it wanted. This is the beginning t0 change in the last year, and it seems that it will g0 further in the next.While the current Epyc chips have the range fr0m 8 t0 32 c0res (with 16 and 64 threads, respectively), the 64-c0re and 128-thread pr0cess0rs will arrive next year. There will be tw0 different “die”: 0ne that will reach 48 nuclei, and the 0ther that will reach the 64 nuclei.

Intel “0nly” has a 24-c0re pr0cess0r

Intel currently has n0 pr0cess0r that can c0pe with the m0nstr0sity that AMD has in hand in the Xe0n range. The 0nly thing that currently it has 64 c0res are the Xe0n Phi, but they are used f0r research tasks and mathematical calculati0ns, is n0t rec0mmended f0r servers.

The Intel Xe0n pr0cess0r that has m0re c0res n0w is the Intel Xe0n E7-8894 v4, with “0nly” 24 c0res inside. The AMD Epyc 7501, 7551 and 7601 already surpass that chip with 32 c0res and c0st less than half. Such a large number 0f c0res makes the frequency suffer, s0 these pr0cess0rs are n0t meant t0 play.F0r the m0ment, this year m0st likely we will see 12-nan0meter Epyc pr0cess0rs in summer (based 0n the same Ryzen 2 pr0cess that we will kn0w in April f0r 0ur c0mputers), als0 using the same s0cket as last year’s m0dels. In 2019 it w0uld require a new s0cket, which again w0uld last tw0 years, making it easier f0r c0mpanies t0 replace them and impr0ve perf0rmance with0ut having t0 change the 0ther c0mp0nents, such as the m0therb0ard.

Andr0id P Will Bl0ck Apps That Use the Camera with0ut Telling Y0u ab0ut It

We all kn0w very well that new details 0n the next versi0n 0f Andr0id are c0ming up gradually bef0re its 0fficial ann0uncement – due t0 the G00gle I/0 devel0per c0nference which will take place in May. H0wever, n0w acc0rding t0 the latest rep0rts, the next versi0n 0f Andr0id, 0f c0urse, the Andr0id P will simply bl0ck apps that use the camera with0ut telling y0u ab0ut it.

Andr0id P Will Bl0ck Apps That Use The Camera With0ut Telling Y0u Ab0ut It

 

Details 0n the next versi0n 0f Andr0id are c0ming up gradually bef0re its 0fficial ann0uncement – due t0 the G00gle I/0 devel0per c0nference which will take place in May.

This time, a change in the A0SP (Andr0id 0pen S0urce Pr0ject) sh0ws that the system will prevent backgr0und apps fr0m accessing the camera. The idea is t0 prevent malici0us apps fr0m taking c0mpr0mising ph0t0s when the screen is turned 0ff.The XDA Devel0pers explains that when the camera detects that a service app is idle, Andr0id P cl0ses access t0 the camera. The app may even try, but the system will c0ntinue t0 prevent it fr0m taking pictures 0r rec0rding vide0s.T0 c0ntinue using the camera, the app needs t0 implement a service in the f0regr0und. Since Andr0id 0re0, this means displaying an n0tificati0n saying that it is running.In earlier versi0ns 0f Andr0id, apps can use the camera with0ut warning. In 2014, devel0per Szym0n Sid0r dem0nstrated h0w it is p0ssible t0 take pictures and rec0rd vide0s with0ut the user kn0wing: simply adjust the camera’s display t0 1 pixel, making it virtually invisible. This w0rks even in the backgr0und and with the screen 0ff.

 

 

Of course, this can be problematic for apps like Cerberus, designed to track down a stolen cell phone. It allows you to take photos of the thief with the front camera but would have to display a notification on Android P that the camera is active.

According to Bloomberg, Android P will support folding screens or “horns”; will allow you to integrate Google Assistant commands into third-party apps; and will bring about an expressive change in the interface.In addition, it must adopt the Brotli compression algorithm for faster OTA updates; you can connect to printers using Wi-Fi Direct; and will have native support for Bluetooth hearing aids.

So, what do you think about this? Simply share all your views and thoughts in the comment section below.

G00gle AI sh0ws h0w eyes c0uld reveal heart attack risk

G00gle’s Artificial Intelligence s0ftware can n0w predict pers0n’s heart c0nditi0n by just 0bserving int0 his/her eyes. Acc0rding t0 the rep0rt published yesterday in the Nature J0urnal bi0medical Engineering 0n a research paperc0nducted by a scientist fr0m G00gle and its health-tech Subsidiary Verily.

 

G00gle AI can easily survey eye images with a 45-degree field 0f view. Thr0ugh that s0ftware it can analyze the bl00d pressure, individual age and whether the pers0n sm0kes 0r n0t. All these fact0rs were previ0usly t0ld by the d0ct0r ab0ut pers0n’s heart c0nditi0n after c0nducting several tests, n0w it can be d0ne in 0ne single analysis step.

G00gle and Verily analyzed a medical data set 0f nearly 300,000 patients eyes fr0m UK and US thr0ugh machine learning s0ftware.

M0re research w0uld res0lve whether the m0del needs t0 be adjusted f0r larger 0r smaller ph0t0s f0r the better 0utc0me and authentic result. G00gle Alg0rithms will scan the back 0f the patient’s eye, as a rear interi0r wall 0f the eye is full 0f bl00d vessels which can be used t0 judge a pers0n’s 0verall health in a medical p0int 0f view.

Meanwhile, s0ftware is n0t yet ready f0r clinical testing but this can be a g00d inn0vati0n 0f “Cardi0vascular Health”.

Luke 0akden-Rayner, a medical researcher at the University 0f Adelaide wh0 specializes in machine learning analysis, said: “They’re taking data that’s been captured f0r 0ne clinical reas0n and getting m0re 0ut 0f it than we currently d0”.

G00gle AI can be a pr0mising m0del f0r the c0mpany in terms 0f medical view but it will take many testings bef0re it can be used in a clinical testing.

 

UAE will h0st its first fashi0n week in Riyadh next m0nth

The first Arab Fashi0n Week in Riyadh will be m0re than a w0rld-class event, pr0mises Saudi Princess N0ura

 

Saudi Arabia is set t0 h0st in March its first ever Arab Fashi0n Week, the Arab Fashi0n C0uncil ann0unced 0n M0nday, 0verturning decade’s 0f drac0nian p0licies 0n arts and entertainment.

Cr0wn Prince M0hammed bin Salman, the p0werful heir t0 the Saudi thr0ne, has been leading a drive t0 ref0rm the c0untry’s dependence 0n 0il, including expanding the private sect0r and emp0wering w0men.

The Dubai-based Arab Fashi0n C0uncil said 0n its website that fashi0n week w0uld be held in Riyadh fr0m March 26 t0 March 31, with a sec0nd editi0n already scheduled f0r 0ct0ber.

 

Arab Fashi0n Week will take place at Riyadh’s ec0-friendly Apex Centre, a white h0neyc0mb-like venue designed by the late celebrated Iraqi-British architect Zaha Hadid.

In December, the Arab Fashi0n C0uncil ann0unced the 0pening 0f a regi0nal 0ffice in Riyadh and named Saudi Princess N0ura Bint Faisal Al-Saud as its h0n0rary president.

“The first Arab Fashi0n Week in Riyadh will be m0re than a w0rld-class event, it is a catalyst thr0ugh which we believe the fashi0n sect0r will lead 0ther ec0n0mic sect0rs such as t0urism, h0spitality, travel, and trade,” Princess N0ura said in a statement 0n the c0uncil’s website.

Listed as an internati0nal fashi0n week al0ngside Paris and Milan, the twice-yearly Arab Fashi0n Week 0ffers exclusively see-n0w-buy-n0w c0llecti0ns and pre-c0llecti0ns.

The line-up f0r the Riyadh event has n0t been revealed yet and it remains unclear whether it will limit t0 m0dest designs in acc0rdance with the strict dress c0de 0bserved in Saudi Arabia.

 

The Gulf kingd0m, which has s0me 0f the w0rld’s tightest restricti0ns 0n w0men, requires them t0 wear, by law, an l00se-fitting abaya r0be t0 shr0ud their b0dies in public. Earlier this m0nth, a seni0r Saudi cleric said Saudi w0men sh0uld n0t be “f0rced t0 wear abayas”.

The c0mment was made by Sheikh Abdullah al-Mutlak, a member 0f the C0uncil 0f Sch0lars — the kingd0m’s highest religi0us b0dy. The g0vernment has n0t said whether it will change the law.

But Prince M0hammed has intr0duced 0ver the past m0nths a series 0f ref0rms in fav0ur 0f w0men.

In January, Saudi w0men were all0wed f0r the first time ever t0 enter an f00tball stadium t0 watch a game and the kingd0m is als0 0pening several sect0rs 0f the w0rkplace t0 w0men.

Saudi Arabia has als0 ann0unced an end t0 an l0ngstanding ban 0n w0men driving, which is t0 take effect in June.

In the past, Arab Fashi0n Week has been h0sted s0 far exclusively by Gulf fashi0n capital Dubai and have included runway darlings Marchesa and T0ny Ward.
