like in pcs, microsoft and arm look to topple intel in servers

Intel's TV marketing campaign says the company is driving 98 percent of the cloud. That statistic will come under attack with some chip and OS announcements on Wednesday.The most significant announcement: Microsoft's Windows Server OS now running on ARM chips. The OS was exclusive to x86 chips, but now customers can consider ARM chips to run Windows Server.Microsoft did not announce an official date for an ARM version of Windows Server, though the software company is using such systems internally. The announcement was made on the opening day of Open Compute Project's U.S. Summit in Santa Clara, California.At the summit, Qualcomm showed a new 48-core 1U server running its Centriq 2400 ARM chip. The server is based on Microsoft's Project Olympus server design and was shown running Windows Se

facebook, microsoft target faster services with new ai server designs

Facebook on Wednesday rolled out some staggering statistics related to its social networks. Each day, users watch 100 million hours of video, 400 million people use Messenger, and more than 95 million photos and videos are posted on Instagram.That puts a heavy load on Facebook’s servers in data centers, which help orchestrate all these services to ensure timely responses. In addition, Facebook’s servers use machine learning technologies to improve services, with one visible example being image recognition.The story is similar for Microsoft, which is continually looking to balance the load on its servers. For example, Microsoft’s data centers apply machine learning for natural language services like Cortana.Both companies introduced new open-source hardware designs to ensure faster response

malware found preinstalled on 38 android phones used by 2 companies

Enlargeportal gdaShare this storyA commercial malware scanner used by businesses has recently detected an outbreak of malware that came preinstalled on more than three dozen Android devices.An assortment of malware was found on 38 Android devices belonging to two unidentified companies. This is according to a blog post published Friday by Check Point Software Technologies, maker of a mobile threat prevention app. The malicious apps weren't part of the official ROM firmware supplied by the phone manufacturers but were added later somewhere along the supply chain. In six of the cases, the malware was installed to the ROM using system privileges, a technique that requires the firmware to be completely reinstalled for the phone to be disinfected."This finding proves that, even if a user is ext

the way siri learns new languages – macstories

Stephen Nellis, writing for Reuters, shares an interesting look into Apple's method for teaching Siri a new language:
At Apple, the company starts working on a new language by bringing in humans to read passages in a range of accents and dialects, which are then transcribed by hand so the computer has an exact representation of the spoken text to learn from, said Alex Acero, head of the speech team at Apple. Apple also captures a range of sounds in a variety of voices. From there, an acoustic model is built that tries to predict words sequences. Then Apple deploys “dictation mode,” its text-to-speech translator, in the new language, Acero said. When customers use dictation mode, Apple captures a small percentage of the audio recordings and makes them anonymous. The recordings, complete w

you don’t need an app to convert currencies and units on your iphone

Since you need Siri to make app-less conversions, you have to know how to summon it on your iOS device. And to do that, you simply have to press and hold the home button of your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch.Siri is available on iPhone 4s or later, iPad Pro, iPad Air or later, iPad (3rd generation) or later, iPad mini or later, and iPod touch (5th generation or later), and requires an internet connection.Another, perhaps better, way of summoning Siri is by using the hands-free “Hey Siri” feature on supported devices, which you can enable by opening the Settings app, tapping the Siri option, turning on Allow “Hey Siri,” and following the onscreen instructions. After enabling Hey Siri, you can bring up Siri just by saying “Hey Siri” — no need to press and hold the home button.Hey Siri is suppo

apple’s supplier clean energy program hits japan, includes large floating solar

Apple has long been committed to using renewable energy for its own operations, and in 2015 extended that goal to its suppliers, starting with China.

siri vs. alexa: the good, the bad... or the both?

Apple's Siri and Amazon's Alexa are taking different paths towards the virtual interface, but is there a benefit in walking them both?I've been thinking about getting something that runs Alexa. Probably an Echo. It's not properly supported where I live, which I'll get to later, but it's interesting technology and I'd like to test it out. What interests me most is how radically, almost diametrically opposed Amazon's strategy has been compared to Apple and Siri.The two companies, and others, are all racing towards the same finish line — a voice-interface good and ubiquitous enough to become the primary interface for certain tasks — but in very different ways.Then vs. NowSiri launched in 2011 alongside iPhone 4s. Previously and app from the App Store, Apple acquired it and turned it into the

gorgeous iphone 8 concept imagines siri w/ augmented reality features [gallery]

Quite a few concepts have been popping up lately imagining how rumored features for the iPhone 8 could be implemented. A larger curved OLED display with so-called “function area” and embedded Home button implementation have been the focus of most, but a new concept today instead focuses on how iOS might improve in the process. More specifically, an augmented reality version of Siri…Best iPhone, iPad, & Apple TV game controllersThe concept below from Gabor Balogh imagines a redesigned Siri that integrates AR features, something Apple is also reportedly developing, directly into the home screen experience. When a user raises the device, the background of the home screen becomes a live view into the real world behind, with Siri not only interacting with your device but also real-world objects

amd hopes to break intel server dominance with new 32-core naples chip

The outspoken Forrest Norrod has never shied away from challenges. Previously, as a server chief at Dell, he helped the company’s data-center hardware business flourish, and he loved experimenting with new types of servers.He has a new challenge as AMD’s server chief: to bring back the glory days of chipmaker’s server business, which is now in tatters. A mega-chip called Naples, which has 32 cores and is based on the Zen architecture, will be the first test of AMD’s return to the server market.The Naples chip will ship to server makers in the second quarter of this year. The benchmarks of Naples are competitive with Intel’s chips in head-to-head comparisons, said Norrod, senior vice president and general manager of AMD’s Enterprise, Embedded, and Semi-Custom Business Group.AMD’s return wil

mirai is the hydra of iot security: too many heads to cut off

Efforts to stop Mirai, a malware found infecting thousands of IoT devices, have become a game of whack-a-mole, with differing opinions over whether hackers or the security community are making any headway.The malicious code became publicly available in late September. Since then, it’s been blamed for enslaving IoT devices such as DVRs and internet cameras to launch massive distributed denial-of-service attacks, one of which disrupted internet access across the U.S. in October.The good news: Last month, police arrested one suspected hacker who may have been behind several Mirai-related DDoS attacks.In addition, internet backbone provider Level 3 Communications has said it’s made a dent in stopping the Mirai malware.The malicious code has been found on 500,000 to 600,000 IoT devices at one t
