On a warm summer evening, a visitor to 1920s Göttingen, Germany, might have heard the hubbub of a party from an apartment on Friedländer Way. A glimpse through the window would reveal a gathering of scholars. The wine would be flowing and the air buzzing with conversations centered on mathematical problems of the day. The eavesdropper might eventually pick up a woman’s laugh cutting through the din: the hostess, Emmy Noether, a creative genius of mathematics.At a time when women were considered intellectually inferior to men, Noether (pronounced NUR-ter) won the admiration of her male colleagues. She resolved a nagging puzzle in Albert Einstein’s newfound theory of gravity, the general theory of relativity. And in the process, she proved a revolutionary mathematical theorem that changed the way physicists study the universe.It’s been a century since the July 23, 1918, unveiling of Noether’s famous theorem. Yet its importance persists today. “That … [Read more...] about In her short life, mathematician Emmy Noether changed the face of physics

Compared to a typical CPU, a brain is remarkably energy-efficient, in part because it combines memory, communications, and processing in a single execution unit, the neuron. A brain also has lots of them, which lets it handle lots of tasks in parallel. Attempts to run neural networks on traditional CPUs run up against these fundamental mismatches. Only a few things can be executed at a time, and shuffling data to memory is a slow process. As a result, neural networks have tended to be both computationally and energy intensive. A few years back, IBM announced a new processor design that was a bit closer to a collection of neurons and could execute neural networks far more efficiently. But this didn't help much with training the networks in the first place. Now, IBM is back with a hardware design that's specialized for training neural networks. And it does this in part by directly executing the training in a specialized type of memory. Changing phases Phase-change memory is based on … [Read more...] about Training a neural network in phase-change memory beats GPUs

A sketchy report over the weekend claims that Apple’s low-cost HomePod might actually be released under the Beats brand.Apple is said to be working on the low-cost HomePod with chip supplier MediaTek, according to the Chinese website Sina. The report also claims that the cheaper HomePod model will be sold under the Beats brand, but it didn’t give out other information related to specs, pricing or a potential release date. Rumors of a low-cost HomePod started back in March when a Chinese website claimed that the new device could sell for somewhere between $150 and $200. The new product is also said to be smaller in size when compared to the … [Read more...] about Low-Cost Apple HomePod Rumored To Be Sold Under The Beats Brand
Google’s Android Go initiative to bring super affordable entry level smartphones with a high quality experience came out to a promising start at MWC 2018. There were several Android Go devices announced at the show ranging from large companies such as Alcatel, Nokia, and ZTE to lesser known brands like General Mobile, Micromax and Lava. Other companies like Huawei and Transsion did not have devices to show off but have made commitments to the Android Go program to release devices in the future. > What is Android Go? Everything you need to know before you take the plunge The idea behind Android Go is to bring a fast and smooth performance to devices with 1 GB of RAM or less and low powered processors all while keeping the devices secure and up to date with the latest version of Android and Google Play Protect. If you’re spec hungry or care a lot about your phone’s appearance, the Android Go program isn’t for you as specs and aesthetics take a backseat in favor … [Read more...] about Can Android Go change the budget market?

Probably 1.2 GHz at best. posted on 12 Sep 2012, 13:04 3 10. TheLibertine (Posts: 484; Member since: 15 Jan 2012) They never say much about the clock speed, cause they mostly concentrate on graphics performance. But double the performance without additional cores would mean... Something like 1,5 GHz Dual Core. posted on 12 Sep 2012, 13:06 2 14. FiddyPence (Posts: 21; Member since: 08 Aug 2012) Apparently there using ARM A15 cores. 20. TheLibertine (Posts: 484; Member since: 15 Jan 2012) I guess that should be it. Apple never gave much about clock speed. 27. remixfa (Posts: 14605; Member since: 19 Dec 2008) They are not using A15's. The die shrink would be more than 22% from the 40nm chip used in the i4s. That points to a 32nm chip.. which means its the rebranded Exynos 4212 again, like they use in … [Read more...] about Comments for : iPhone 5 powered by the A6: 2x the power and 22% smaller
