Huawei is said to be embracing artificial intelligence technologies beyond just smartphones and move it to a wide variety of product categories under the Project Da Vinci, which is an internal initiative. The project is said to be ranging from consumer electronics to telecom equipment. Though the primary focus will be the consumer electronics.
Furthermore, in terms of other applications, the company is reportedly planning to pose a challenge to NVIDIA’s data center chips with hardware of its own, while having its subsidiary HiSilicon developing new AI modules. With the company facing a tough time in the USA, thegovernment is unlikely to accept such hardware anytime soon, so it is evident that the company would not be targeting the stateside anytime soon.
Instead, it will challenge NVIDIA in its home country since China currently accounts for nearly a quarter of the chipmaker’s revenue. The project also includes Huawei’s surveillance services and is directly related to camera feed analysis solutions the company is presently offering in some 90 countries across four continents. This initiative would play a large part in the company's wireless plans, inline with the fifth generation mobile networks.
This also decreases its dependence on Qualcomm who it sees as its primary rival in terms of semi conductor business. Either way, ...
Google has pushed a new beta update to its Google app and this update details how the last remnant of Google Now will soon be killed. It also hints at some minor tweaks to Podcasts and Lens. It features a “deprecation_warning” for a widget. "Feed" is most likely to be removed since how it is the last piece linked to Google Now.
Instead of Feed, it will push 'At-a-glance widget' that features the date, weather, calendar and other information. Moving along, search in Google Podcasts is limited to a high lookup of shows currently. However, it might soon get the ability to surface individual episodes when searching in the Podcasts app. It is also in line with Google’s ambition to transcribe every podcast and make them searchable. The Podcasts Settings features a new toolbar with Help, Privacy, and Terms links.
The panel that describes Google Lens capabilities is also tweaked slightly; it includes categories and descriptions. “Places” is now changed to “Identify Plants and Animals.” There is a new 'top apps' feature with rounded search bar and cards. There seems to be a sheet to edit Feed articles, the “spark” icon for topics is present. This was last seen on a Pixel launcher feed redesign that Google ...
HTC is said to be working on multi-room VR using Steam as the company has shown off a SteamVR beta, a Vive Pro, and 16 base stations to allow VR between multiple rooms. The tester said to have wandered between rooms finding tracked objects through a complex but connected space.
Here’s a video of the test environment that people asked for. Three separate tracked spaces, with two 2.0 BS each, all in a shared virtual space. (Seems to work even behind closed door) Trackers placed within the shared space to show common coordinate system between spaces. pic.twitter.com/efqJKajky6

However, you can't expect to play VR games that span your entire home, though, as there are limitations. According to Alan Yates, the SteamVR is still limited to tracking from four base stations in a given session. This more or less is about the support for "radio-based channel configuration tools" rather than a dramatic change in SteamVR's capabilities.
As of now, you can't really buy the setup, instead, you need to buy a Vive Pro to get Steam VR 2.0 tracking stations, so there's no way to tell if HTC or any other company would release the stand-alone station packs in the near ...

At the OnePlus 6 global launch, the company cautiously stayed away from using the word "Dash Charge" while talking about the battery department. Dash Charge is the companies unique charging technology that charges OnePlus phones very quickly and it is also considered to be the fastest among the fastest charging technologies. The OxygenOS Open Beta updates around that time also had replaced the term “Dash Charge” with “charging rapidly.”
If that's not enough, online stores in several regions started calling Dash Charge cables as fast charge cables. However, it was later found out that OnePlus had started phasing out the term “Dash Charge” because it was rejected trademark application in the EU as it collides with Bragi’s “The Dash Pro” and Amazon’s “Dash Replenishment.” The alternative to this is for OnePlus to simply rebrand its Dash charging implementation to something more unique. Recent trademark filing in the EU indicates that OnePlus has filed for a trademark of “Warp Charge” as the probable rebrand.
The application for “Warp Charge” was made at the European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO), and falls in the Nice class of 9. The Nice Classification system gives general information about the type of goods or services intended to be covered under the trademark.
The OnePlus application represents to “Data cables; power ...
