NVIDIA TITAN Xp GPU revealed for Mac (and PC)

NVIDIA's latest graphics card is the NVIDIA TITAN Xp, a GPU with more cores, faster clocks, faster memory, and more TFLOPS than the TITAN X that came before it. This graphics card is being delivered to users direct from NVIDIA through NVIDIA's online store. It'll be available to be used by both PC users and Apple computer users - though the latter requires a bit more work - for now.

Windows 10 Creators Update continues to refine privacy options

Windows 10 Creators Update continues to refine privacy options

One of the biggest criticisms about Windows 10 was on how Microsoft handled privacy settings, which, in a nutshell, was done rather poorly. This was complicated by a subsequent update that, unknown to the user, suddenly changed previously set privacy settings. After receiving no small amount of backlash, not to mention government scrutiny, Microsoft has been more careful and more public about its privacy settings for Windows 10, something that fortunately continues to the Creators Update coming next week.

Google’s TPU taking on Intel and NVIDIA for Neural Networking’s future

Google’s TPU taking on Intel and NVIDIA for Neural Networking’s future

Google is seeking a new way to make neural networking work efficiently - starting with the TPU. The TPU is a Tensor Processing Unit - to be compared to Intel's CPU or NVIDIA's GPU, made for processing data. Google's news here is their first-ever study published on how well their TPU works - compared, appropriately enough, to Intel's CPU and NVIDIA's GPU whilst neural networking.

Apple still can’t accept iMac pro users might want touch

Apple still can’t accept iMac pro users might want touch

Don't tell Microsoft Surface Studio owners, but Apple still doesn't think touch has any place on computers targeting pro users. The Cupertino firm confirmed today that it's working on new iMac all-in-ones that will specifically target the high-performance requirements of professional users. However, the machines still won't cede any ground on Apple's long-standing refusal to countenance touch displays in anything other than its iOS line-up.

Apple “completely rethinking” modular Mac Pro plus Apple displays

The fears aren't true: Apple hasn't given up on pro users and the Mac Pro. It just made a mistake. After months - maybe years - of speculation, Apple has confirmed today that a new Mac Pro desktop is being worked on. No mere update to the existing, trash can-shaped model that has proved so controversial. This is a completely new machine.

Microsoft patents a tablet with dynamic e-ink keyboard cover

Like it or not, it seems that companies are beginning to rethink the venerable keyboard, especially when it comes to mobile devices, both laptops and tablets alike. Microsoft started it with the Surface covers and then Apple jumped on board with the cloth-like Smart Keyboard. Things came to a head with the Lenovo Yoga Book's "Halo Keyboard". Now it seems that Microsoft might be on the verge of yet another invention, one that combines a few of those ideas together into one e-ink keyboard cover.

Adobe, Cornell AI transfers one photo’s style to another

There is no doubt that artificial intelligence, machine learning, and neural networks have experienced huge strides in progress, but of their applications have been on things with "hard edges". Those include search results, translation, board games, etc. Recently, however, progress is also being made in areas of computer vision, imaging, and graphics, for applications that are usually considered more "subjective". Like transferring one photo's style unto another photo. Researchers from Adobe and Cornell University have developed a deep-learning neural network that does exactly that, and the results are very convincing indeed.
