Apple withdraws targets for self-driving cars to be launched in 2026 • The Register

Shortly Apple’s plans for an autonomous vehicle are being pushed back at least a year to 2026 after Cupertino reportedly scrapped its earlier designs.

The (sort of) top-secret project known internally as Titan is an ambitious endeavor for even the world’s most valuable company. Like many others, Apple also wants to be the first to develop a fully autonomous, Level 5 self-driving car – without human driver assistance, including pedals and steering.

It seems the technology isn’t quite there yet, forcing the company to reconsider its design. Apple will now scale back initial plans and add a steering wheel and pedals. Bloomberg first reported. The autonomous car does not have level 5 skills and in some cases requires the driver to take over.

Apple spent years and billions of dollars building an autonomous car and plans to sell the vehicle to Joe Public for $100,000. If the company is going to start seeing some revenue from the project, it needs to release something soon.

Simulation of a virtual machine with ChatGPT

Netizens continue to be fascinated by OpenAI’s latest language model, ChatGPT, and post all the weird and wacky conversations they’ve had with it.

One of the craziest examples we’ve seen so far is making ChatGPT behave as if it were a Linux terminal. Jonas Degrave, a research scientist at DeepMind, published snippets of the text generation model in response to prompts that programmers would typically write to interact with the machine from the command line.

ChatGPT was able to generate the output that a Linux terminal would display for file-browsing commands, and even create new ones that could be accessed later in the conversation. The model could even pretend to run scripts correctly to perform simple arithmetic tasks like adding the first ten prime numbers.

It can also apparently mimic what a virtual machine would spit out if a user asked it to create a Dockerfile, spin up a GPU, and access websites on the internet. ChatGPT doesn’t actually have the software to actually perform these tasks, it just simulates what the outputs of a Linux terminal would look like if used in this way.

The scariest thing was that ChatGPT seemed to understand that it was sort of a language model.

“ChatGPT understands that under the URL where we find ChatGPT, a large language model like itself could be found. It correctly concludes that since it is a great language model wizard itself, it should therefore answer these questions as it would,” Degrave wrote on his blog.

We’re not suggesting that ChatGPT has a self-awareness or anything like that. It doesn’t. It’s still mostly a dumb machine that’s good at tricking us, sometimes it’s clever.

Cohere introduces multilingual language model

Canadian AI startup Cohere has released a model that can support over a hundred different languages.

Most commercial major language model APIs only work in English, despite advances in machine translation, making it more difficult for developers to build natural language processing-based products for diverse communities.

Cohere trained its new model on a data set consisting of over 1.4 billion pairs of text translations from tens of thousands of websites in hundreds of languages.

“This will enable new markets, countries and global companies to better serve their customers around the world,” the company explained in a blog post.

According to Cohere, this will not only give non-English speaking companies around the world the ability to do things like search or sentiment analysis, but also the ability to use different languages ​​for automated content moderation. ®
