The former Apple engineer who created the programming language Swift has joined AI chip startup SiFive. Here's what he learned working at Apple, Tesla, and Google.

Chris Lattner, the former Apple engineer who created the iOS programming language Swift, joined the artificial intelligence chip startup SiFive in January to head platform engineering there. While Lattner is focusing on software for chips now, he says it's similar to what he's been doing throughout his career at Apple, Tesla, and Google because he's building tools. Lattner says the three tech giants he's worked at have "very distinct corporate cultures" because Apple is about the product, Tesl...

AI upscaling makes this Lumiere Bros film look new – and you can use the same technique

A.I.! Good gawd y’all – what is it good for? Absolutely … upscaling, actually. Some of machine learning’s powers may prove to be simple but transformative. And in fact, this “enhance” feature we always imagined from sci-fi becomes real. Just watch as a pioneering Lumiere Brothers film is transformed so it seems like something shot with money from the Polish government and screened at a big arty film festival, not 1896. It’s spooky. It’s the work of Denis Shiryaev. (If you speak...
