Google tweaks Android to prompt users about app crashes


American tech giant Google, in a response to software crashes, has tweaked Android to provide a new popup that urges users to update their apps. According to The Verge, Esper’s senior technical editor Mishaal Rahman has shared that the prompt says, “Update the app to fix crashes. The app stopped working, but the latest update for the app may fix the issue. Install the update and then open the app again.” The prompt will only be helpful if an app isn’t already fully updated. If a device is already running its latest version and still crashing, then it’s likely that a fix isn’t available yet. Still, given the fact that most of the time crashing issues are resolved with a simple update, the new prompt will be more helpful than not, reported The Verge.
Google’s support page states that the new prompt is rolling out with version 33.2 of the Google Play Store app this week. As per The Verge, it’s one of a number of tweaks and fixes coming to Android this month, which also includes a new automatic update feature for people with limited mobile data and no access to Wi-Fi.

Nvidia to collaborate with Microsoft for ‘massive’ AI supercomputer

A “multi-year collaboration” between Nvidia and Microsoft is underway to create “one of the most powerful AI supercomputers in the world,” which will be able to manage the enormous processing workloads required to train and scale AI.
According to The Verge, as part of the partnership, Nvidia will make use of Microsoft’s scalable virtual machine instances to accelerate the development of generative AI models like DALL-E. The AI supercomputer will make use of thousands of Nvidia’s powerful H100 and A100 data centre GPUs as well as its Quantum-2 InfiniBand networking architecture, which is based on Microsoft’s Azure cloud infrastructure. As per Nvidia, the combination of Microsoft’s Azure cloud platform and Nvidia’s GPUs, networking, and full AI suite will allow more enterprises to train, deploy, and scale AI — including large, state-of-the-art models, reported The Verge. Both companies will also collaboratively develop Deep Speed, Microsoft’s deep learning optimization software.
In a statement, Nvidia said the supercomputer could be used to “research and further accelerate advances in generative AI,” a relatively new class of large language models like DALL-E and Stable Diffusion that use self-learning algorithms to create a diverse range of content, such as text, code, digital images, video, and audio.
As per The Verge, these AI models have seen rapid growth in recent years which has significantly raised the demand for powerful computing infrastructure capable of scaling alongside their development.
