2.Salesforce and Apple are ready for enterprise AR: Salesforce has announced that it will support two key Apple solutions: Vision Pro and ARKit. Vision Pro is a new framework that allows developers to create augmented reality (AR) experiences for iOS devices using drag-and-drop tools and pre-built components. ARKit is Apple’s platform for building immersive AR apps that blend digital content with the real world². Salesforce says that these solutions will enable its customers to create engaging and interactive AR experiences for various use cases, such as training, sales, and customer service.

3.Google Quietly Extends Testing of AI-Generated Search Results: Google has been testing a new way of generating search results using a large language model called ChatGPT. ChatGPT is based on the same technology that powers Google’s chatbot Meena, which can have natural and conversational dialogues with humans. Google says that ChatGPT can produce more relevant and diverse results than the traditional link-based approach, especially for complex or ambiguous queries. The pilot program, which was supposed to end this month, has been extended indefinitely as Google continues to explore the potential of AI-generated search.

4.Microsoft unveils Phi-2, the next of its smaller, more nimble genAI models: Microsoft has revealed its latest small language model, Phi-2, which is designed to be faster and more efficient than large language models like GPT-3. Phi-2 has only 1.5 billion parameters, compared to GPT-3’s 175 billion, but it can still perform a wide range of natural language tasks, such as summarization, translation, and question answering. Microsoft claims that Phi-2 can outperform large language models that are 25 times its size on some benchmarks, and that it can run on a single GPU, making it more accessible and affordable for developers.

5.Apple Pay will need to open up to a little more competition: Apple is reportedly planning to open up its NFC technology to allow other mobile payment apps to use it on iPhones. This move comes after a recent court ruling that ordered Apple to let app developers direct users to alternative payment methods outside of the App Store. Apple Pay, which uses NFC to enable contactless payments, currently dominates the mobile payment market, but it faces increasing competition from rivals like Google Pay, Samsung Pay, and PayPal.

6.Public cloud service revenue jumps 19%, with Microsoft leading overall: IDC: According to IDC, the global public cloud services market grew by 19% year over year in the first half of 2023, reaching $315.5 billion. The growth was driven by the increased adoption of cloud-based solutions for artificial intelligence, analytics, and digital transformation amid the COVID-19 pandemic. Microsoft was the top vendor in the market, with a 20.5% share, followed by Amazon Web Services with 16.8%, and Google Cloud with 7.9%. IDC predicts that the public cloud services market will surpass $1 trillion in annual revenue by 2026.

7.Consumer Motherboards To Add Support For 256GB of RAM: MSI has announced that it will enable support for 256GB of RAM on some of its consumer motherboard models through a BIOS update. This will allow users to install up to eight 32GB DDR4 memory modules on their systems, which could boost performance for applications that require large amounts of memory, such as video editing, 3D rendering, and gaming. MSI says that the BIOS update will be available for its Z590, B560, H510, Z490, B460, and H410 series motherboards.

8.SpaceX to Launch First Cellular Starlink Satellites As Soon As Today: SpaceX is preparing to launch its first batch of Starlink satellites that can communicate directly with cell phones, without the need for a ground station or a dish antenna. The launch, which could happen as soon as today, will include six ‘Direct to Cell’ Starlink satellites, along with 48 regular Starlink satellites. The Direct to Cell satellites are part of SpaceX’s plan to provide global broadband internet access, especially in remote and rural areas where cellular coverage is limited or nonexistent.
