苹果会给类 Echo 设备加上屏幕吗?

(12:04:23更新)Apple 高管 Phil Schiller 日前在最近一个采访中提到,目前类亚马逊 Echo 的设备都有一个巨大的缺点,那就是没有屏幕

Schiller said while the voice tech-alone approach isfine, he thinks some kind of visual component would be more helpful, especially when asking about things like direction and so on.

Schiller was asked about the quickly growing smart home trend – and why Apple hasn’t jumped into the space already. Of course, Schiller didn’t spill any juicy details per Apple’s legendary privacy protocols, but analysts think Apple could debut a Siri-powered home hub as soon as next month at its WWDC developer’s conference. And we’ll bet it has a screen on it.

英伟达与智慧城市

(11:00:02 更新)英伟达 GPU 在深度学习领域占有重要地位,最新的消息则是英伟达计划将 GPU 应用到智慧城市动态影像的分析上:

According to NVIDIA, there are already hundreds of millions of surveillance cameras around the globe, with the number expected to rise to the 1 billion mark by 2020. Human beings have a hard time sifting through the flood of moving images, storing the majority of it on hard drives for later viewing. NVIDA thinks that deep learning AI can help video analytics much more accurately than humans or even real-time computer monitoring. The company has partnered with more than 50 companies that make security cameras, including Hikvision. "The benefit of GPU deep learning is that data can be analyzed quickly and accurately to drive deeper insights," said Shiliang Pu, president at the Hikvision Research Institute in China.
