애플 '아이폰5SE' 출시 가격 49만원~61만원.. 아이폰5S 가격 50% 인하 전망

애플의 신형 4인치 아이폰5SE(가칭)이 400달러~500달러에 출시될 것이라는 전망이 나왔다. KGI 증권 애플 분석가 밍치궈가 최근 발표한 보고서에 따르면 지금까지 알려졌던 4인치 아이폰의 제품 명칭은 아이폰5SE가 아닌 아이폰SE다. 아이폰SE 특징은 유출된 렌더링처럼 모서리 부분이 약간 곡면으로 처리됐으며 아이폰6S와 동일한 A9 프로세서가 탑재되며 애플페이와 라이브 포토도 지원한다. 후면 카메라는 800만에서 1200만 화소로 업그레이드된다. 밍치궈가 예상한 아이폰SE 가격은 400달러(약 49만원)~500달러(약 61만원)이다. 또, 밍치궈는 아이폰SE 출시된 후에는 아이폰5S 가격이 50% 인하될 것으로 전망했다. 한편, 외신에 따르면 애플 신제품 발표회는 당초 알려졌던 내달 15일에서 1주일이 연기된 21일 개최된다. 이날 애플은 신형 4인치 아이폰과 9.7인치 아이패드 프로, 개선된 애플워치 등을 공개할 것으로 알려졌다.

록키 추억팔이 영화라고 볼 수 있겠지만,

예상밖으로 록키에 대한 색은 그다지 짙지 않았다.

추억장면을 부각해서 더 튈수도 있었겠지만,

록키도 자기 자신을 내려놓은듯한, 그래서 더욱 빛나는 조연이 아닐까?

자신을 내려놓고 연기해서 다시 전성기를 맞는 배우들도 많이 있으니...



AI learns to predict human reactions by reading our fiction

이미지
A team of Stanford researchers have developed a novel means of teaching artificial intelligence systems how to predict a human's response to their actions. They've given their knowledge base, dubbed Augur, access to online writing community Wattpad and its archive of more than 600,000 stories. This information will enable support vector machines (basically, learning algorithms) to better predict what people do in the face of various stimuli. "Over many millions of words, these mundane patterns [of people's reactions] are far more common than their dramatic counterparts," the team wrote in their study. "Characters in modern fiction turn on the lights after entering rooms; they react to compliments by blushing; they do not answer their phones when they are in meetings." In its initial field tests, using an Augur-powered wearable camera, the system correctly identified objects and people 91 percent of the time. It correctly predicted their next move 71 pe…

Volvo shows off a prototype of its self-emptying trash can

이미지
Volvo's ROAR (RObot based Autonomous Refuse handling) project has moved into prototype testing, the company announced earlier this week. The ROAR system is designed to autonomously empty trash cans from the back of a garbage truck, saving the driver from having to manually load bins into the hopper. The initial concept involved just the robot, which relied on maps of the neighborhood and likely bin locations (as well as GPS, LiDAR and accelerometers) to help it navigate. The new iteration, on the other hand, also employs an aerial drone that lifts off from the garbage truck's roof to act as a pair of "eyes in the sky" for the ROAR, telling it where the trash cans actually are, not just where they're supposed to be.
Volvo teamed with undergrads at three universities -- Chalmers University of Technology, Mälardalen University and Penn State University -- to design and construct the prototype in just four months. "We predict a future with more automation,"…
