 Kaifu Li talks about applying for the AI ​​major: Many jobs in the AI ​​major can also be replaced by AI

Kai-fu Lee, founder of Sinovation Ventures and CEO of AI start-up company Zero One Thousand, was interviewed recently and talked about many AI topics.

In light of the recent hot topic of filling in the application form after the college entrance examination, Kai-fu Lee talked about the issue of "whether you should apply for artificial intelligence-related majors", saying that it is definitely not suitable for everyone to apply for it, and it should be "do it if you are suitable, and shouldn't do it if you are not suitable" "Do it", you should not think that every job in the artificial intelligence major cannot be replaced by artificial intelligence. In fact, many jobs in the AI ​​major can be replaced by AI.

Kaifu Lee suggested that to learn AI, you should first learn programming. If you don’t learn programming particularly well, you will be replaced by AI in the future. He also said that no matter what major you apply for, you should regard large models as your best partners.

Kai-Fu Lee also once again talked about the recent "price war" of large models, saying that we should not lose money to promote APIs because this will disrupt the order of the industry. The company found that it can produce the same effect at low cost and still make money, so it is more appropriate to reduce prices; it makes no sense to follow the trend and engage in price wars, or even to lose money but to reduce prices.

Sources say Apple is developing an “affordable headset” and plans to launch it by the end of 2025

The Information reports that Apple is developing a more streamlined but cheaper Apple Vision Pro head-mounted display device, which is scheduled to be released by the end of 2025.

According to sources, Apple has shelved the development of the second-generation Vision Pro device and is focusing more on the development of cheap headsets.

The affordable Vision Pro device is expected to have lower display quality, use a slower M2 chip for the processor, and cheaper materials, and may abandon the H2 chip that can reduce AirPods latency, thereby lowering the price. The price is expected to be between $1,500 and $2,500. Between US dollars (equivalent to approximately 10,885 yuan to 18,141 yuan), the current price of Vision Pro is US$3,499.

However, analyst Ming-Chi Kuo said last year that Apple has given up on plans to develop affordable headsets, so whether Apple is developing an "affordable headset" is still controversial.

The National Bank version of Vision Pro is priced at 29,999 yuan and will be officially released on June 28. We have already got this device. Let’s take a look at the differences between the National Bank version of Vision Pro.
