  • It’s not surprising as conversations are at the heart of unlocking opportunities such as a new job, business lead or career advice.
  • That’s why we’re rolling out an even smarter messaging experience with the ability to message a connection from wherever you may be on LinkedIn, along with suggestions that can help connect you to a new job.
  • For example, you can have a conversation with a connection without ever leaving their profile, or reach out to someone directly from the LinkedIn Feed.
  • In fact, nearly 50% of LinkedIn members have found a job through a mutual connection.
  • For example, when looking at a job posting at a company you’re interested in we’ll show you which of your connections work there, or who can introduce you to someone at the company.

    Identifying high-risk cases

    Facebook has now taken the initiative to monitor its network actively for hints that someone may be contemplating to commit suicide.

  • “The AI is actually more accurate than the reports that we get from people that are flagged as suicide and self-injury,” Facebook Product Manager Vanessa Callison-Burch said in an interview with BuzzFeed News.
  • To tackle the live video streaming of suicide attempts, Facebook has also launched a new tool for friends to report videos that concern them.

ARM’s next-gen chip design puts the focus on artificial intelligence

ARM’s next-gen chip design puts the focus on artificial intelligence  #5G #IoT #mobile

  • ARM tipped its hand today with the announcement of DynamIQ, a new technology it says will lay the groundwork for its next generation of mobile processors.
  • Like other mobile chip makers, the company’s got a lot to contend with when it comes to future-proofing its offerings, and certainly ARM’s making some pretty big claims for what it’s calling its “biggest micro-architectural shift since […] 2011”

    Central to the company’s speed boasts are its focus on future artificial intelligence, an aspect of technology that will continue to grow more central to mobile computing over the next several years, both through the proliferation of smart-assistants, autonomous vehicles and beyond.

  • As with offerings from other mobile chip makers, the company is targeting a wide range of different computing platforms that move well beyond mobile.
  • Microsoft has already laid some of the groundwork for additional applications back in December when it announced that it would be bringing its apps to the company’s mobile processors, in an attempt to get hardware makers to build a wider variety of devices for the operating system.
  • ARM’s not giving exact dates for the technology’s anticipated arrival, only stating that it expects its hardware partners to ship an additional 100 billion ARM-based chips by the year 2021, having shipped roughly half that number between 2013 and 2017.

ARM’s latest CPUs are ready for an AI-powered future

ARM's latest CPUs are ready for an AI-powered future

  • That could make for a 1+3 (quad-core) or 1+7 (octacore) layout, where each individual core has its own performance and power characteristics.
  • The claim it’s making is that this setup can improve responsiveness for AI, with a 50x boost in AI performance over the next 3-5 years, and 10x between the (still Cortex-A9) CPU and specialized “accelerator hardware.”

ARM processor technology already powers many of the devices you use every day, and now the company is showing off its plans for the future with DynamIQ. Aimed s…
