A research team from Samsung Electronics and Harvard University has published a study on a new method for mimicking the structure of the human brain on a semiconductor chip. A paper published in Nature Electronics describes how to create a memory device to create structures such as information processing characteristics of the human brain, such as adaptability to environments that increase learning with low energy consumption, and autonomous cognitive processes.
The device uses an array of nanoelectrodes to map, replicate, and reproduce brain neuronal connectivity in a highly integrated three-dimensional solid-state memory network. The conductance that reflects the strength of the connection per neuron mapped to each memory cell, that is, it maintains a state where electricity is easy to flow. In other words, it implements a brain neural network. Samsung Electronics’ research is one step closer to realizing AI that learns and thinks autonomously.
Although Facebook announced in July the development of the Metaverse, a virtual space where people can enjoy, work, or shop, it plans to invest $50 million over two years in global research and program partners for the development of the Metaverse on September 27. was newly announced. According to Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, Metaverse is a virtual environment where people can spend time together in the digital space.
Amazon has announced the Astro, a home robot with wheels. It’s like a smart display with Alexa that moves around the house. With a secure subscription service, you can use it as home security while you’re away to detect anomalies such as smoke, carbon monoxide detector sounds, glass breakage, and more. Not only that, they follow you around the house, so you can make video calls while walking. You can also make urgent contact with your family.
Amazon also offers a Blink Video doorbell, a smart doorbell, a smart thermostat smart thermostat that supports Alexa, Amazon Glow, an interactive device for children, Amazon Halo View, a health tracker with a display, and exclusive content for kids. Amazon Kids Plus, a service that provides
The China Cyberspace Administration announced on September 29 a joint plan aimed at the healthy and orderly development of the industry by introducing a sound management mechanism and standardized ecosystem of algorithms related to Internet information services over the next three years. Recently, Chinese authorities are tightening regulations on online services, and this announcement is seen as part of this. Reportedly, Chinese authorities fear algorithms under state control because algorithms are critical to controlling what people see and hear in the digital space.
On September 28, Microsoft announced a policy change to allow third-party app stores to be made public in the Microsoft Store for Windows. In other words, you can install third-party store apps such as the Epic Game Store from the Microsoft Store. The hassle of deliberately going to a third-party official site and downloading it from the browser and installing it disappears. In addition to other apps, a detailed page with outlines and ratings is also available.
The new Microsoft Store will be released with Windows 11 on October 5th and will also be available for Windows 10. Although the Microsoft Store has not shown a very high presence so far, interest is gathering to see what kind of reaction it will bring in the future. thank you.
