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.

CNET's new guidelines for AI journalism met with union pushback


Nearly seven months after it began publishing machine-generated stories without disclosing their true authorship (or lack thereof) to readers, CNET has finally, publicly changed its policy on the use of AI in its journalistic endeavors. In short, stories written by its in-house artificial intelligence -- which it calls Responsible AI Machine Partner (RAMP) -- are no more, but the specter of AI in its newsroom is far from exorcised. The site indicates, however, that there are still two broad categories of pursuits where RAMP will be deployed. The first, which it calls "Organizing large amounts of information" provides an example that seems more authorial than that umbrella descriptor lets on. "RAMP will help us sort things like pricing and availability data and present it in ways that tailor information to certain audiences. Without an AI assist, this volume of work wouldn't be possible."

Rishi Sunak to pitch UK as world leader of AI during meeting with Biden: report

FOX News

WATCH LIVE: VP Harris meets with UK PM Rishi Sunak in Munich. British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak is reportedly hoping to pitch the United Kingdom as a world leader in artificial intelligence governance during his meeting with President Joe Biden. But a post-Brexit U.K. has been locked out of key discussions between the United States and the European Union, such as the fourth Tech and Trade Council (TTC) meeting in Sweden. The White House said both the U.S. and EU recommitted to deepening cooperation on setting AI standards in line with democratic values and universal human rights and work together on emerging technologies "with like-minded partners." Politico reported in March that the Biden administration, meanwhile, has quietly rebuffed British officials' repeated requests for greater dialogue between Washington, D.C., and the U.K. regarding setting AI standards.

Get 'ducking' excited: Apple is finally addressing this annoying autocorrect issue

USATODAY - Tech Top Stories

Apple users who are tired of that "ducking" autocorrect issue can now rejoice! The tech company announced Monday at this year's Worldwide Developers Conference that iOS 17 will ensure that autocorrected words are temporarily underlined so users know what has been changed and can quickly change the word back to what they originally meant to type. "Autocorrect is powered by on-device machine learning and over the years, we've continued to advance these models," said Craig Federighi, the company's software chief. "The keyboard now leverages a transformer language model, which is state of the art for word prediction, making autocorrect more accurate than ever." The autocorrect feature has been the subject of tweets, memes and other social media posts for years, often annoying already irritated people trying to drop a popular expletive by changing the word to "ducking."

OBSBOT Tiny 4K webcam review: An absolute joy to use


The OBSBOT Tiny PTZ 4K webcam offers an incredible array of premium features for a reasonable price, capped off by an AI-powered ability to physically track your face as you move. The OBSBOT Tiny 4K certainly ranks among the best webcams you can buy, 4K or not, period. It offers so much: 4K video, a 60fps option (albeit at 1080p), and the real magic: an automated gimbal that physically rotates and dips the webcam to center your face. The OBSBOT Tiny 4K (sometimes sold as the OBSBOT Tiny PTZ 4K) will soon be supplemented by the Tiny 2, with a larger sensor for improved video. That should help solve one of the Tiny 4K's only shortcomings: video quality is good, just not outstanding.
