Imagine being able to embark on a real-time computer vision project in a few hours, with no code to build a traffic control system, a warehouse monitoring system, or an in-store point of sale optimization system. Like the apps that are built on top of smartphone operating systems, these smart computer vision projects can use a multitude of proprietary and vendor algorithms. Because they are built on top of BrainFrame, an operating system for computer vision that comes with a Smart Vision AI Developers Kit, they take a fraction of the time to build than other computer vision projects.

BrainFrame is one of the core products of Aotu.ai, started by two founders, Stephen Li and Alex Thiel. Stephen applied his experience building out the Android operating system to BrainFrame. In collaboration with leading chipmakers such as Intel, Nvidia, etc., BrainFrame is positioning itself to

Buried in the one of the most chaotic news cycles of the year, earlier this week the House Judiciary Committee published a report based on its 15-month investigation into the antitrust potential of tech’s big four: Google, Apple, Facebook, and Amazon. “To put it simply, companies that once were scrappy, underdog startups that challenged the status quo have become the kinds of monopolies we last saw in the era of oil barons and railroad tycoons,” the 449-page report from the antitrust subcommittee states. “They not only wield tremendous power, but they also abuse it by charging exorbitant fees, imposing oppressive contract terms, and extracting valuable data from the people and businesses that rely on them.”

On the most recent episode of the New York podcast Pivot, co-hosts Kara Swisher and Scott Galloway consider the massive investigation and why the

When Will Apple Release Smart Speaker?

October 8, 2020 | technology | No Comments

KEY POINTS

  • Apple is expected to release a new HomePod this year
  • A known leaker claims Apple will launch a “mini” version of the HomePod instead of HomePod 2
  • Previous reports also hinted at the new device’s arrival

A “mini” version of Apple’s HomePod may be coming soon, according to a known leaker.

Apple is set to reveal new devices during its Oct. 13 event, with the iPhone 12, wireless headphones AirPods Studio, tracker AirTags and a new version of the HomePod among those expected to be unveiled. But the Siri-powered smart home speaker, which hasn’t been updated since 2017, may not be refreshed and replaced with a newer model. Instead, the company could release a smaller version.

According to a prominent leaker known only as L0vetodream, “there is no HomePod2 this year.” Instead, the leaker claims that Apple will only have a “mini one,” indicating that the Cupertino

A security flaw in an internet-connected male chastity device could allow hackers to remotely lock it — leaving users trapped, researchers have warned.

The Cellmate, produced by Chinese firm Qiui, is a cover that clamps on the base of the male genitals with a hardened steel ring, and does not have a physical key or manual override.

The locking mechanism is controlled with a smartphone app via Bluetooth — marketed as both an anti-cheating and a submission sex play device — but security researchers have found multiple flaws that leave it vulnerable to hacking.

“We discovered that remote attackers could prevent the Bluetooth lock from being opened, permanently locking the user in the device. There is no physical unlock,” British security firm Pen Test Partners said Tuesday.

“An angle grinder or other suitable heavy tool would be required to cut the wearer free.”

The firm also found other security flaws

Amazon rounds out the Echo.


Amazon

Amazon line of smart speakers is switching up its look; the new Amazon Echo will be spherical. The price will be $100 (£90), which is what the company’s previous, third-generation Amazon Echo went for. The new Echo speaker will be available Oct. 22, and its fabric-covered body will come in three different colors: charcoal, glacier white and twilight blue. It’s open for preorder now.

For specifics about its design as regards sound quality, Amazon says, “Its 3.0-inch woofer, dual-firing tweeters, and Dolby processing delivers stereo sound with clear highs, dynamic-mids, and deep bass that automatically adapts to any room.”

While the woofer appears to be the same as the previous Echo’s, Amazon has packed a second .8-inch tweeter into the speaker, which should
