Should AI come to your doctor's office? OpenAI's CEO thinks so


There's a big fear in many members of the workforce of the potential for artificial intelligence tools to take over their jobs, rendering their positions futile. However, there's one place where AI has been successfully innovating for years and, as a result, saving lives: The medical field. Beyond reading minds, AI has been used to interpret medical imaging to find potentially cancerous tumors that could be easily missed by the human eye, for example. And now, OpenAI co-founder and President Greg Brockman, tweeted about a new way generative AI tools can be implemented at doctor's offices across the world. GPT-4 in @CarbonHealth -- cuts the time to create a medical record to four mins, saving doctors 10 minutes:

Will YOUR iPhone support Apple's upcoming iOS 17?

Daily Mail - Science & tech

If your iPhone or iPad is over five years old, you'll miss out on the wave of new features and applications coming this fall with Apple's upgrade to iOS 17. The iPhone X, the first to feature FaceID, iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus will not support the new operating system. That means the iPhone XS, XS Max, and XR will be the oldest devices capable of running the new operating system when available later this year. The end of having to say'Hey' to summon Siri, a new Journal app for tracking your life goals, improvements to autocorrect, and a'Check In' feature to let friends and loved ones know you've arrived home safely are among iOS 17's new features. But only the most advanced iPhones, from 2021's iPhone 12 and newer, will be able to control their device with hand gestures during a FaceTime call, unlocking fun augmented reality (AR) reaction graphics.

Apple Vision Pro Hands On: The Opposite of Disappearing


Apple's long-awaited mixed-reality headset, the Vision Pro, is here. Or not yet here, but announced. In a crescendoed moment of its software conference keynote this morning, Apple executives revealed a pair of smart goggles that portend a post-iPhone world. I had a hands on (heads on?) demo of the Vision Pro headset earlier today, in a building constructed on Apple's campus specifically to house meetings around this new product. Apple executives declined to go on the record during the demo and subsequent briefing, but it was clear that Apple views Vision Pro as a spatial computing platform, not a singular device.

$1,500 'Smart Gun' that has facial recognition and fingerprint unlock to go on sale in US in MONTHS

Daily Mail - Science & tech

Kai Kloepfer was in high school student in 2012 when 24-year-old James Holmes walked into an Aurora movie theater in, a half-hour drive from where Kloepfer lived. Holmes shot and killed 12 and injured 70 more. The incident caused Kloepfer to want to stop accidental shootings and suicides. Now 26, he is about to ship the world's first smart gun. PayPal cofounder Peter Thiel's fellowship program awarded Kloepfer $100,000 for dropping out of school to start his company.

The Morning After: What to expect from Apple's WWDC 2023


Apple's big developer conference kicks off June 5th, and all the signs point to the company's mixed reality headset making its first appearance. The tech giant has been acquiring headset-friendly startups for years, and if the rumors are true, Apple's stand-alone device (possibly called Reality Pro) may be more powerful than the Meta Quest Pro and many other high-end headsets. It could pack 4K resolution per eye, with full body-motion tracking. It may require an external battery pack and last for just two hours on a charge, but it would be relatively light and slim. It will also likely land with a new platform (maybe called xrOS) designed with mixed reality in mind.

Abode's new wireless doorbell is full of value, with a few caveats

USATODAY - Tech Top Stories

Installing the Abode Wireless Video Doorbell is relatively simple, both when it comes to physically installing the device, and setting it up in the app. Physically, you'll simply screw in a base-plate, then push the doorbell into the plate to attach it. The doorbell comes with two base-plates, one of which is angled. To set the doorbell up in the Abode app, you'll open the app and follow the on-screen instructions to turn the doorbell on and connect the included chime to your Wi-Fi network. It's straightforward, and I experienced no problems while installing the device.

AI-powered system can inspect a car in seconds using bomb detecting tech

FOX News

Fox News correspondent Grady Trimble has the latest on fears the technology will spiral out of control on'Special Report.' This is what you call speedy service. UVeye is a new system that uses artificial intelligence to perform multi-point vehicle inspections in seconds, saving hours of work compared to traditional methods. "It's kind of like an MRI for your car," UVeye Chief Marketing Officer Yaron Saghiv told Fox News Digital. The technology uses computer vision and deep learning originally developed in Israel as a security system that could scan below vehicles for explosive devices and other smuggled items.

Save 30% on Amazon's Ring Video Doorbell and keep your home safe


Whether you're monitoring arriving packages or watching for nefarious activity, these days it's important to secure your home with a video doorbell. I own this specific doorbell myself and really love it, especially when I'm home alone. The 1080p video is clear and smooth, and it was relatively easy to install. I also like to scare my husband by randomly speaking to him through it. This joke never gets old (well, for me it doesn't).

Tech's ambassador to Washington gambles his career on AI

Washington Post - Technology News

In 2018, Smith called for policies that would require the government to obtain a warrant to use facial recognition, as competitors such as Amazon aggressively pursued government facial recognition contracts. In 2019, he criticized Facebook for the impact of foreign influence on its platform during the 2016 elections -- an issue Microsoft's business-oriented social network, LinkedIn, largely didn't confront. He has said that Section 230, a key law that social media companies use as a shield from lawsuits, had outlived its utility.
