Google recently revealed that it will launch its latest Pixel 7 lineup alongside the highly anticipated Pixel Watch at its “Made by Google” event scheduled for October 6.

Following the news, the tech giant updated the Pixel 7 product page on its website and revealed the successor to the Tensor chip. The Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro’s chip will be called the Tensor G2 and is expected to “bring even more useful and personalized features to photos, videos, security, and voice recognition” compared to the flagships of the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro. latest generation of Pixels. .

Until recently we didn’t know much else about the new chip, but thanks to the developer Kuba Wojciechowski, Going through Sam-Mobile, we now know that Tensor G2 uses the same CPU cores (two Cortex-X1, two Cortex-A76, and four Cortex-A55 cores) as the last generation Tensor chip. The information comes from a Pixel 7 Pro Geekbench listing.

The Tensor G2 is reportedly manufactured using Samsung’s 4nm process, with minor clock speed improvements to the X1 and A76 processor cores. “The A76 cluster has been boosted by 100 MHz, to 2.35 GHz, and the X1 cluster now runs 50 MHz faster than before, to 2.85 GHz,” Wojciechowski wrote. Minor advancements could result in about a 10% increase in multi-core performance, with negligible improvement in single-core performance, while prioritizing power efficiency.

Similarly, improvements on the GPU side are said to deliver 20% better gaming performance, 20% better power efficiency, and 35% better machine learning performance. According to Wojciechowski, the improvements can be attributed to the new Mali-G710 GPU, while the last generation Tensor used the Mali-G78 GPU. “Google runs a lot of its Google Camera pipeline on the GPU of its Tensor devices. This will certainly improve that significantly, while also improving the way new Pixels play,” Wojciechowski wrote.

Additionally, Tensor G2 will feature a new Tensor Processing Unit (TPU) codenamed “Janeiro”, to deliver “incredible new AI experiences”, alongside a new S5300 modem for better connectivity.

A few years ago, Ayushmann Dash and Felix Laumann realized that the existing natural language processing (NLP) models worked poorly in locally spoken languages ​​and the model translations weren’t really accurate.

Although NLP models existed in German (Felix’s mother tongue) and Oriya (Ayushman’s mother tongue) in 2018-2019, they did not encounter models based on the latest learning advances in depth.

So, the duo decided to create NeuralSpace, a software-as-a-service (SaaS) platform that offers developers a web interface and API suite for text and voice NLP tasks (language AI models) in more than 100 languages.

Local languages ​​and improving accuracy in real-world use cases are priority areas for the platform, which received an initial investment of $2.8 million from Techstars, a global investment firm based in Colorado.

“The Googles, Microsofts, IBMs, and AWSs of this world also offer models in these languages, but they are often inaccurate in many real-world use cases. NeuralSpace develops models with a local language-first approach. We make sure that our models perform well in locally spoken languages ​​such as Gujarati, Telugu and Gulf Arabic even before training them in English, French and Spanish,” Felix explains.

What does the platform offer?

The NeuralSpace platform consists of various language processing features in over 100 languages. It offers a suite of APIs for linguistic AI models, with features such as entity recognition, language understanding, text-to-speech, text-to-speech, machine translation, and transliteration.

Features are pre-trained with a basic understanding of each language and can be used across many industries. Developers can either consume the content directly or customize it to get their own unique AI model that precisely solves their business problems.

For example, in conversational AI solutions, such as chatbots and voicebots, the “language understanding” offering helps recognize customer intent and extract relevant information from what is said or written. to perform a relevant action. Natural language understanding can also predict user sentiment, which can help analyze user behavior. This makes it possible to create chatbots and voicebots that respond to the user in a more empathetic tone.

“For example, if the user says, ‘I want to reserve a table at 8 p.m. tonight’, our understanding of the language would recognize that the customer wants to make a reservation (intent) along with the time (8 p.m.) and date (today)”, explains Félix.

NeuralSpace can automatically detect the language a person is writing in, translate between languages, transcribe what was said into text, identify speakers in a meeting, and create a synthetic voice that reads text.

The AI ​​model that powers the platform is state-of-the-art and was developed in-house with some of the top researchers in the field, Felix says.

The technology is specially developed for languages ​​spoken locally in India, the Middle East and Southeast Asia.

The team

NeuralSpace is headquartered in London, UK, and has offices in India and Tunisia. The startup team is made up of 22 engineers, marketers and operators, all driven by a passion for breaking down language barriers on the internet.

The founders met while studying in Europe. Ayushman was studying computer science at the Technical University of Kaiserslautern in Germany, while Felix was at the Technical University of Denmark in Copenhagen.

“We greatly benefit from having 19 out of 22 employees in India, whose mother tongues are Punjabi, Bengali, Oriya, Marathi and Hindi. We also have an Arabic linguist working with us and we look forward to hiring an even more international team,” says Felix.

growth path

The NLP startup recently joined Colarado-based Techstars, a global investment platform that provides access to capital and one-on-one mentoring, and received an initial investment of $2.8 million.

The company’s product is online today and is used by over 300 companies. NeuralSpace’s top customers include Hello Ebbot, a conversational AI company for Scandinavian languages, and Eden AI, a marketplace for easily integrating and comparing various machine learning vendors.

The startup offers a pay-as-you-go revenue model.

Market and competition

The global text-to-speech market was valued at $2 billion in 2020 and is expected to reach $5 billion by 2026, according to a report by MarketsandMarkets.

NeuralSpace competes with Bengaluru-based Slang Lab, which develops augmented voice experiences for users. These experiences help users command their devices to perform actions without even having to touch the screen. NeuralSpace also competes with Deepdub, Neospaience, Papercup and Lovo.

The startup believes that its advantage lies in the number of languages ​​offered on its platform (more than 100 against 30 among its competitors Google AI, Microsoft Azure Cognitive Services and IBM Watson), the performance and accuracy of the models, and the fact that it offers an all-in-one platform with many language AI offerings.

“We have built a horizontally scalable platform that can automatically adapt to our customers’ different usage patterns. During the Black Friday flash sales, our e-commerce templates for language processing are heavily used,” says Felix.

Build capacity

Currently, the NeuralSpace team is working on expanding all of its core services, building customization capabilities and adding more languages, especially for Automatic Speech Recognition (ASR) models.

“Many people speak a mixture of two languages ​​in their daily lives. For example, “Hinglish” (Hindi-English) or a mixture of Arabic and English. We invest heavily in building models that understand two languages ​​together,” says Feliz.

In the future, the startup wants to focus on creating end-to-end solutions based on the individual services currently offered.

“For example, a voicebot is a combination of ASR, language understanding and synthetic voice generation (also known as ‘text-to-speech’). There are many more such examples and we want our customers to can create them all easily on NeuralSpace, in more than 100 languages, adapted to their specific vocabulary,” says Felix.

ALPENA — On Saturday, Alpena Community College opened its doors to the public in honor of its 70th anniversary.

Members of the community joined alumni, current students, staff and faculty outside the Besser Technical Center as Mary Eagan, Director of Alumni Relations, kicked off the celebration with a speech.

“Today is as much about celebrating community as it is about celebrating college,” Eagan said.

President Don MacMaster reiterated ACC’s mission to honor and connect with the community in his subsequent address.

“The college is the most important resource this community has,” he said.

News Photo by MJ Smith Dr. Donald L. Newport (right) and former ACC President Dr. Olin H. Joynton (left) accompany President Don MacMaster (center) at the cut cake at the Alpena Community College Open House.

MacMaster then welcomed special guest Kelly Lively, representing Senator Gary Peters, who was there to present a Certificate of Special Senatorial Recognition on his behalf.

“ACC’s dedication and focus on student learning, delivered by quality faculty and staff, has created generations of success – which we can be proud of,” Lively said.

The rest of the celebration included a cake-cutting led by MacMaster and campus tours, aided by the Thunder Bay Transportation Authority, which provided shuttle service for attendees around the college grounds. The Hypnotones, a local jazz band, performed at the Granum Theater, located in the Donald L. Newport Center.

Since its opening in 1952, the ACC has undergone many changes. In addition to the extensive renovation of Van Lare Hall in 2021, construction of the Fitzpatrick Lecture Hall began the same year.

This project was made possible by Tim and Sue Fitzpatrick, who donated $1.45 million to bring the vision to life. Their goal was to help students pursue the new Bachelor of Science in Nursing.

Sue Fitzpatrick described the new conference room as “part of the puzzle” to assess what was missing from the program.

“Trades are so essential to this community,” she explained.

An integral part of the build was the installation of a high quality video wall to facilitate remote learning. Its capabilities were demonstrated by the screening of a virtual campus tour video, produced by local videographer Joseph Rybarczyk.

Saturday’s open house was just the start of this year’s celebration. Those interested in learning more or joining in the celebration are encouraged to check the college website frequently for announcements and upcoming events.

More renovations are also on the horizon for the ACC, with the Charles R. Donnelly Natural Resource Center on the agenda. Additionally, there are plans to expand on-campus housing as student numbers increase.

“Let your imagination run wild with what the next 70 years will bring,” said Brenda Herman, Executive Director of the ACC Foundation.

Yeshiva University would not officially recognize the LGBTQ+ student club, saying it would infringe on its religious rights. But the U.S. Supreme Court, with Justices Kavanaugh and Roberts on the liberal side, ordered him to do so while lower courts determine what works in New York state. After the decision, Yeshiva University abruptly suspended all club activities at the school to avoid complying with the order, reports the Associated Press. The college describes itself as faith-based and therefore exempt from New York’s anti-discrimination laws, but it is registered as a non-religious university instead of a religious institution and offers secular degrees to reap the benefits.

…an attorney for the students said the university’s action on Friday was divisive and “shameful.” “The Pride Alliance seeks a safe space on campus, nothing more. By shutting down all club activities, the YU administration is attempting to divide the student body and pit students against their LGBT peers,” the statement said. lawyer, Katie Rosenfeld.

*slap on the nose* If you close all the pools, you don’t have to let them into the pools.

It’s funny that none of the mainstream media articles I’ve read explain exactly what club recognition entails. I’m pretty sure they didn’t know, couldn’t immediately figure it out, so they just jumped on it. The upshot is that conservatives think club recognition is some sort of forced speech ritual in which religious people are forced to bend the knee and say they approve of anal sex and a myriad of genders.

Here’s what’s really at stake:

Without official acknowledgment, YU Pride Alliance cannot hold on-campus meetings, access university funding available to other student groups, post events on school bulletin boards, or participate in student club lounges.

For Prime Minister Mark Rutte, his two-day visit to Suriname is mainly devoted to the common history of the Netherlands and Suriname. And slavery is an inextricable part of it, Rutte said in his speech to the Surinamese parliament in Paramaribo.

Rutte called it “paradoxical” that the common history of the two countries is still so painful. “We cannot change this, but we can and must deal with it. This is also why I came to Suriname.

The Prime Minister was looking forward to the commemorative year 2023. It will then be 150 years since the Netherlands abolished slavery. For him, the year will be dominated by recognition.

“Recognition of the horrible suffering inflicted on slaves. Recognition of the struggle and the resistance that there has been. And, of course, recognition of the impact of slavery in the present,” Rutte said.

President Chan Santokhi and Speaker of Parliament Marinus Bee also delivered speeches.

The NDP faction, Desi Bouterse’s party, was not present for the speeches. Instead, the NDP laid a wreath in memory of the dead.

Rutte stressed in his speech that relations between the Netherlands and Suriname had been troubled for “a long, far too long”. Glad the link has been restored. His visit to Suriname and Santokhi’s visit to the Netherlands last year underline this. “We are meeting again,” Rutte said.

The Dutch Prime Minister sees many opportunities for Suriname. This is also evident from the great enthusiasm of the business community who traveled with Rutte and Minister Liesje Schreinemacher for foreign trade and development cooperation. The companies come from a variety of sectors ranging from water management to manufacturing, from the Port of Rotterdam to the dredging, agriculture and service sector. “We are working together again and look forward to the opportunities that come our way.”
