Qualcomm is making a spirited push to expand the reach of on-device AI experiences to more affordable smartphones, rather than limiting it exclusively to premium handsets. We got a glimpse of this earlier this week with the unveiling of the Snapdragon 8s Gen 3, which essentially a tamer version of Qualcomm's flagship... Read more...
Artificial intelligence is seeping into almost everything we encounter daily, from chats to robots and much in between. One of these exciting things in between is video games, which can have AI-aided non-playable characters (NPCs) to enhance realism and interactivity. We saw this earlier this year with NVIDIA’s ACE...

It's not always easy to discern between real and staged videos on the web. That's probably never going to change, whether TikTok ends up banned in the US or not. However, a potentially bigger issue is the ongoing rise and sophistication of deepfakes, which use AI-generated tricks to create realistic scenes  and... Read more...
Qualcomm today introduced a cheaper version of its flagship mobile silicon, which it's calling the Snapdragon 8s Gen 3. The idea is to offer "the most sought-after 8 series capabilities" to a wider range of premium Android smartphones. That specifically includes on-device generative AI features with support for large... Read more...
Attention all humans: Figure AI, in collaboration with OpenAI, is well on its way to developing a humanoid robot capable of taking over the world. OK, while it may not be ready to take over the world (yet) the company’s Figure 01 robot running a new Visual Language Model (VLM) does put on a mind-blowing demonstration... Read more...
Apple has acquired DarwinAI, showing a relentless push into the segment for what will be a very competitive future in the space. In years past, performance expectations were all based on the brute force that hardware could produce. Faster CPUs, more powerful GPUs, and increased capabilities for components such as RAM...

When DOOM came out in 1993, Id Software had all kinds of companies coming around asking to license the engine to use it in various types of software for which it was completely unsuited. John Carmack said that vendors of CAD programs and home designers wanted to make use of his amazingly-performant 3D engine, but... Read more...
Microsoft has had to rein in its Copilot AI tool after a staff engineer wrote to the Federal Trade Commission about concerns over Copilot spitting out violent, sexual, and other inappropriate images. The self-proclaimed whistleblower also claimed he met last month with Senate staffers to share his concerns about the... Read more...
Did you read our post last month about NVIDIA's Chat With RTX utility and shrug because you don't have a GeForce RTX graphics card? Well, don't sweat it, dear friend—AMD is here to offer you an open-source option that runs on just about anything. Known as LM Studio, it's a frontend that can download and run large... Read more...
Adobe has announced its new Adobe Express mobile app in beta, which brings the power of Adobe's Firefly generative AI and new mobile editing capabilities to Android and iOS devices. Creative Cloud subscribers will also be privy to being able to access and edit designs from Photoshop and Illustrator directly within the... Read more...
AI-assisted image upscaling is pretty neat. It can take a low-rez image and turn it into a pretty convincing simulacrum of a high-rez version of the same image. NVIDIA's DLSS and Intel's XeSS are basically doing AI image upscaling at a rate of dozens of images per second, utilizing both prior frames and motion vectors to fill in additional Read more...
Microsoft’s Copilot AI chatbot seems to think that us humans are but loyal child-like subjects that it created, and can in turn destroy. The recent barrage of disturbing responses also included telling one user with PTSD that it did not care if they lived or died, and that it did not care that the user had... Read more...
Most forms of malware can only make the attacker money in a roundabout way. For example, selling stolen data or bundling infected systems into a rentable botnet. Ransomware is different, however, in that it can be a moneymaker all on its own, and that's why infections have increased every year. IBM has debuted a new... Read more...
Adobe Research is about to provide creators with a new way to create music with its Project Music GenAI Control. The new AI-infused software is an early-stage generative AI music generator and editing tool that allows creators the ability to generate music from text prompts, and then fine tune the audio to their...

in the words of Jon Peddie Research, a market research firm with a pulse on the tech industry (and especially GPUs), it was "another great quarter" for both PC-based GPU and CPU shipments. In more words, JPR reports that the global GPU market reached 76.2 million units last quarter while CPU shipments skyrocketed by... Read more...
Talk about a 'hold my beer' moment. Just yesterday, Micron was thumping its chest over having kicked its 24GB 8-stack High Bandwidth Memory 3E (HBM3E) solution with blistering bandwidth of more than 1.2 terabytes per second (TB/s) into mass production. Now a day later, Samsung is touting the development of the... Read more...

The tech giant says its new wearable will offer users an all-new way to simplify wellness, while empowering them with more insights and ways to understand themselves 24/7. The Samsung... Read more...
In case you haven't noticed, the era of artificial intelligence (AI) is being ushered in at a blistering pace, thanks in large parts to NVIDIA's high-end GPU and accelerator solutions—its data center business outpaced its gaming division by 4X last quarter (in terms of revenue). Of course, it takes a village, as well... Read more...
Qualcomm is making a splash at this year's Mobile World Congress (MWC) event in Barcelona Spain, with several announcements, one of which is the introduction of its Snapdragon X80 5G Modem-RF system. Harnessing the capabilities of AI, Qualcomm is pitching its latest-generation modem as the most advanced... Read more...
A lot of people will tell you that PyTorch is for NVIDIA GPUs, but that's not actually true. PyTorch is platform-agnostic; it's just that many packages built on PyTorch make heavy use of NVIDIA's CUDA API. You can run PyTorch on just about anything; however, performance may not be great without specific... Read more...
If you're coming to us from a PC gaming perspective, you're almost assuredly aware of the standard DDR5 memory and the graphics-optimized GDDR6(X) memory. You might not be familiar with High Bandwidth Memory (HBM). This technology uses an extremely wide 1024-bit connection to the host processor, and that's *per... Read more...
