Here is what you need to know about AI today in 5 minutes.

Microsoft has unveiled what is being called the world’s first “AI PCs

Their new surface laptops will be fully AI-powered and enabled…

Whatever that means!

All in on AI

The devices will feature brand-new snapdragon processors designed to match Apple’s own silicon, as well as Intel options for those who want to stay away from ARM processors.

The upcoming so-called Surface Pro 10 and Surface Laptop 6 will come with a next-gen neural processing unit (NPU), designed to work smoothly with all of Windows AI integrations (remember they own 49% of OpenAI…)

Are we about to see native ChatGPT in Windows?

Bill is…

When are they coming?

Microsoft is expected to release the Surface Pro 10 and Surface Laptop 6 sometime next year.

But a more significant Surface Pro design change could be in store for 2025, Windows Central reports, along with a new refreshed Surface Laptop Studio.

Microsoft is going all in on AI - but will it work out for them? I’ll stick to my Mac!

Our Reader’s Thoughts

“Why not? Americans like u are judging bc you didn’t come up with it first. Americans are more f*ked up… give your head a shake” - aeggmov

AEGGMOV WE ARE NOT AMERICAN! I AM INCREDIBLY OFFENDED!

As much as I miss the departed, I do not want words and ideas that are not truly their own becoming associated with their true essence. This is fan fiction gone horribly wrong in the real world.” - cfrye

💡AI-NSPIRATIONAL QUOTE

The world is in need of your unique gifts and talents; share them generously, and you'll leave a lasting legacy.

Your daily pearl of wisdom from ChatGPT.

Doctors are excited about a brand new stethoscope powered by AI.

It can detect heart disease instantly.

The humble tool hasn’t changed in 200 years, but AI has finally delivered a critical update…

Instant diagnosis

The tool has been licensed by medical regulators for use by general physicians and will be the first AI product that can be relied on to prescribe life-saving medication without the need for a specialist review first.  

In just 15 seconds, the AI stethoscope can detect three types of heart disease.

Heart failure, atrial fibrillation or irregular heartbeat, which is the biggest cause of stroke; and valvular heart disease.

In clinical studies was able to detect about 85% of treatable heart failure in patients. It had a 93% specificity against the blood test, which means patients with an AI diagnosis almost always have an abnormal blood test as well.

OUR VIEW:

How long until this is everywhere? This is AI at its best.
