1、Software green alliance unified technical specification 1.0 for new generation 3D data files was officially released

Turing test is outdated and AI needs a new benchmark; Goodbye, flash, Adobe player officially stopped

According to the software green alliance, the unified technical specification 1.0 for new generation 3D data files (hereinafter referred to as specification 1.0) jointly formulated by JD, Huawei, Alibaba, Tencent, Netease, cocos, ADIP and other enterprises was officially released.

The main scope of specification 1.0 issued this time includes:

  • Define the basic structure of unified 3D file format, basic characteristics and implementation requirements for efficient editing, storage and parsing;
  • Define the characteristics and implementation requirements that can quickly complete data loading;
  • Define interfaces that can be adapted to a variety of rendering engines to realize 3D data formats that do not depend on the engine and have no other runtime behavior except rendering and animation;
  • Define a complete 3D scene representation: in addition to a single model, it includes the whole 3D scene (node, transformation, network, material, camera and animation, etc.);
  • Define extensible properties and support user-defined extensions.

2、Flash bye! Adobe player was officially shut down from January 1

The deep operating system deepin 20.1 (1010) has been released. The new version adopts the stable kernel 5.8 kernel, upgrades the underlying system to Debian 10.6, improves the system stability and compatibility, updates the deep family bucket application, and optimizes the startup time, installation time, resource occupation, startup response, etc.

4、China Telecom launched the industry’s first quantum secure call product “quantum secret call”

Recently, China Telecom officially announced the launch of the industry’s first quantum secure call product “quantum secret call”, which uses quantum information technology to protect call security. Quantum information technology is mainly divided into three fields: quantum communication, quantum computing and quantum measurement. Among them, quantum communication technology is entering the stage of industrial application from the stage of basic scientific research_The “quantum secret call” launched this time uses quantum random number and quantum key distribution mechanism to generate authentication key and call key, and realizes end-to-end encryption from the caller’s mobile phone to the called party’s mobile phone during the call._ At present, China has built the world’s largest quantum communication network, and quantum communication has initially met the commercial conditions. As a key technology to ensure the future social information security, quantum communication is expected to realize large-scale applications in government affairs, finance, commerce, medical treatment, national defense, electric power and other fields in the future.

Alan Turing published a paper on imitation games in 1950 and introduced the Turing test to answer the question “can machines think”. The purpose of the test is to determine whether the machine can show dialogue behavior that human beings can’t distinguish. Turing predicted that by 2000, the probability that ordinary people can distinguish between humans and robots in imitation games will be less than 70%. Rohit Prasad, chief scientist of Amazon voice assistant Alexa department, believes that with AI being widely integrated into mobile phones, cars and families, people are now concerned about the interaction between man and machine, rather than distinguishing between machines and humans. He believes that the Turing test is outdated and AI needs a new benchmark. Rohit Prasad pointed out that in recent years, chat bots have been able to deceive more than 30% of judges into believing that it is human, and the threshold of fooling 30% of judges is actually set arbitrarily, which is of little significance.

6、Microsoft files confirm win10 cloud PC cloud PC Upgrade

It was previously reported that Microsoft is secretly developing windows 10 cloud PC, a new service that will allow users to access desktop applications from any device in a few minutes. Windows 10 cloud PC is expected to be released sometime between March and June 2021. Now the Internet has leaked new and exciting details about the service_First, cloud PC is a new service based on azure, which is based on “windows virtual desktop”_, It aims to redefine the “modern workplace” and revolutionize the computing environment_Cloud PCs will have at least three different configurations – Intermediate (general computing), heavy (better performance) and advanced (commercial customers)._ According to a new support document, cloud PC will also use Microsoft graph technology, a tool for real-time collaboration, azure integration and other functions. Microsoft graph v1.0 has been updated, including the new API of cloud PC, which indicates that this new service may be launched in the near future. Microsoft pointed out in the document: “the cloud PC API is in the preview stage and is currently only open to specific customer groups”.

1、AAAI 2021 | realize 19fps real-time yoobile target detection on mobile phone

Turing test is outdated and AI needs a new benchmark; Goodbye, flash, Adobe player officially stopped

This paper proposes a target detection acceleration framework combining model compression and compilation. The pruning strategy designed according to the hardware characteristics of the compiler can greatly improve the running speed while maintaining high map. The 14 times compressed yolov4 can reach the running speed of 19fps on the mobile phone and still maintain the high accuracy of 49map (coco dataset). Compared with the full version of yolov3, the framework is 7 times faster without sacrificing accuracy. The framework was proposed by Wang Yanzhi research group of Northeastern University and Ren bin research group of William Mary College.

2、Realformer: transfer the residual to the attention matrix

Turing test is outdated and AI needs a new benchmark; Goodbye, flash, Adobe player officially stopped

Layer normalization is one of the important components of transformer model. It can be used in postln and preln. The paper on layer normalization in the transformer architecture   There is a detailed analysis of the two. In short, preln is more friendly to gradient descent, converges faster, and is more robust to super parameters such as learning rate during training. Anyway, everything is good, but there is a hard injury: the performance of preln always seems to be slightly worse than that of postln. A recent Google paper proposed the design of realformer, which successfully made up for the gap, making the model as friendly as preln and better than postln. It can be described as “having both fish and bear’s paw”.
