Cook talks about why new iPhones are launched every year

Recently, Apple CEO Tim Cook accepted an interview with Brut magazine and mentioned the company's future plans.

When asked if "we really need a new iPhone every year," Cook said:

I think it would be great to be able to buy an iPhone every year for people who want it.

What we do is allow people to trade in using their phones.

If the phone still works, we resell it; if it doesn't, we have a way to dismantle it and use the materials to build a new iPhone.

When talking about what the iPhone will look like 20 or 30 years from now, Cook emphasized that the iPhone then will be carbon neutral:

I think it will be carbon neutral. Obviously it will be well ahead of where it is today, but I don't want to give you all our secrets on this. Suffice to say, from an environmental perspective, it will be carbon neutral.

In addition, Cook also revealed some of his personal efforts to reduce carbon emissions:

I do drive an electric car. I try to avoid plastic and plastic bottles and make them recyclable. I also compost

I try my best to minimize my carbon footprint in everything I do.

Google launches new AI search function to help medical staff find information quickly

Google Cloud announced the launch of a new AI-powered search feature that will help medical staff quickly extract accurate clinical information from different types of medical records.

For example, if doctors want to understand a patient's medical history, they no longer need to read the patient's medical notes, faxes and electronic health records individually.

They can obtain relevant information simply by searching for questions such as "What medications has this patient taken in the past 12 months?"

The company says the new feature will ultimately save healthcare workers a lot of time and effort.

Lisa O'Malley, senior director of product management at Cloud AI, said the new search capabilities can also be used for other critical applications, such as applying the correct billing code and determining whether a patient meets the criteria to participate in a clinical trial.

She added that new capabilities that can cite and link to the original source of information, drawn directly from an organization's own internal data, will help alleviate clinician concerns about inaccurate information.

Huawei: The online rumor that "Huawei issued a statement rejecting Foxconn's OEM request" is purely a rumor

According to previous reports by China Business News, reporters learned from multiple agencies that recruit dispatch workers for Longhua Foxconn that the hourly wages for the department that mainly produces Huawei and other mobile phone products have exceeded those for the department that produces Apple mobile phones.

 Sam Altman: "Sheltered" OpenAI is destined to die

According to Qubit, OpenAI CEO Sam Altman said in his speech at the latest YC alumni sharing session: "Shelling" OpenAI is destined to die.

Altman gave an example. For example, there are companies that are solving small flaws in the GPT model, especially focusing on the interface.

Firstly, OpenAI is already solving most of the work; secondly, the competitive advantage of these companies that only compete with OpenAI in terms of cost and speed will not be long-lasting and sustainable. Businesses must offer truly unique value.

In addition, Sam Altman said that he is optimistic about the empowerment of AI in medicine and education. AI medical consultants and AI personalized one-on-one tutoring, both of which have huge social value.

For example, in the education scenario, OpenAI is preparing to establish the OpenAI Academy, which is expected to be launched by the end of this year. It may be a free online teaching system accessible to everyone, and teachers can interact with GPT-5 and receive feedback and guidance during the course.

Prior to this, OpenAI also demonstrated two educational scenarios in GPT-4 customer cases. GPT-4 is transformed into an AI learning assistant, which can serve as both a virtual tutor for students and a courseware assistant for teachers.
