Microsoft will launch its first AI chip next month to reduce reliance on Nvidia

According to The Information, Microsoft plans to launch the company's first chip designed specifically for AI at its annual developer conference next month.

As demand surges, Nvidia's AI chips have been in short supply. This move can help Microsoft reduce its dependence on Nvidia's AI chips.

Microsoft's chip is similar to Nvidia's GPU and is designed for data center servers that train and run large language models.

Microsoft's data center servers currently use Nvidia GPUs to power cloud customers such as OpenAI and Intuit, as well as AI capabilities in Microsoft's productivity applications.

People familiar with the matter said that some employees at Microsoft and OpenAI have been testing Microsoft AI server chips. By launching self-developed AI chips, Microsoft will basically catch up with Amazon and Google.

Microsoft hopes the chip will be comparable to Nvidia's H100 GPU, and it's unclear exactly how Microsoft will compare the performance of the two chips.

Pornographic software now disguised as learning software in Apple’s App Store

According to The Paper, some netizens recently reported that a software called "Learn XX Letters" listed on the App Store is actually a pornographic video software.

The age rating of this software is 4 years and above, and it also leads to gambling and other pornographic websites.

Netizen Xiaotong believes that the software is disguised as learning software, does not block arbitrary downloads, and is not limited to young children, so it can easily have a negative impact on children.

Apple responded that it would immediately provide feedback to the App review team and deal with it seriously.

In addition, some netizens reported last night that pornographic software appeared again in the top two of Apple's App Store free list, named "Riding XX" and "Peony XXX", with age ratings of 4 years and above.

As of press time, Aifaner's search found that the above-mentioned software has been removed from the shelves.

Amazon launches first prototype internet satellites

At around 14:00 local time on October 6, United Launch Alliance used a launch vehicle to launch two prototype space Internet satellites for Amazon for the first time, marking the official launch of its satellite network "Project Kuiper."

The mission is designed to test Amazon's first technologies in space, as the company plans to deploy 3,236 satellites over the next few years to provide broadband Internet services around the world.

As early as April 2019, Amazon announced that it would build a satellite network and promised to spend more than $10 billion on the project.

The U.S. Federal Communications Commission granted Amazon permission to deploy and operate satellites, requiring Amazon to deploy and operate at least half of the satellites in the Kuiper program by July 2026.

In addition to SpaceX, Amazon's competitors include Canada's Telesat, which has yet to launch satellites, and French satellite company Eutelsat's OneWeb, which mainly provides Internet services to governments and businesses.

Like SpaceX, Amazon aims to target individual consumers and enterprise users with Kuiper.

Each Amazon user terminal device costs the company $400 to manufacture, and pricing has not yet been announced, while SpaceX's "Starlink" terminal sells for $599 each.

Instagram CEO says iPad app still not a priority

Recently, Instagram CEO Adam Mosseri once again stated in response to user questions that launching an iPad version of Instagram is still not their priority.

Mosseri said having an iPad app "is a good thing at some point," but he thinks there are other new features that are more important.

Last year, Mosseri said the platform's user base on iPad "still isn't high enough to be a priority" and that the team was "very focused on other things."

Tongcheng Business Travel responded to Zhou Hongyi’s change of booking: It was processed normally according to the process, but there was no seat and the selection was not successful.

Recently, screenshots posted online showed that Zhou Hongyi called Tongcheng Business Travel the worst and worst air ticket service in his circle of friends.

"The change of the ticket has not been completed after half an hour. It is because of the complicated bureaucratic process, and it was not successful in the end."

In this regard, Tongcheng Business Travel Service said that there are currently specialists handling the matter, and that the specialists were handling it normally according to the process. "This is not a bureaucratic (process)."

The customer service also said that there were no seats available at that time and the selection was not successful. Zhou Hongyi failed to change the ticket and finally refunded the ticket.

 Study confirms pregnancy partially resets expectant mother's brain

According to "Smart Technology Fans", recently, scientists from the Francis Crick Institute in the UK have confirmed through mouse experiments:

Pregnancy hormones produced during pregnancy rewire the brain in preparation for motherhood, initiating mothering behaviors even before the baby arrives, leading to long-term changes in the brain.

This may explain why females who have given birth love their babies more.

Scientists say the human brain may be rewired in a similar way during pregnancy, with the same hormones affecting the same brain areas, which may affect the mother's behavior.

iOS 17 installation rate sluggish

According to Mixpanel, the installation rate of iOS 17 is lower than normal. As of October 6, the installation rate of iOS 17 was about 23% 18 days after its release.

Back in 2018, 70% of eligible iPhones were equipped with iOS 12 within about two and a half months after the update was released.
