San Francisco, April 20: A Tech giant apple says that iPhone 8 may have the fingerprint reader to the back of the phone.

“Apart from relocating the fingerprint reader, Apple may also add a dual-camera module that sits vertically on the back of the phone,” CNBC.com reported on Thursday.

The camera modules are also going to add some sort of augmented reality function.

Apple’s next generation iPhone 8 is rumored to sport a bold new design and would feature an OLED display full of holes.

“The patent filed by Apple for ‘Electronic devices having displays with openings’ describes a method by which various components can be mounted behind perforations in a device screen that are so small as to be imperceptible to the human eye. This arrangement would allow engineers to design a smartphone or tablet with a true edge-to-edge, or full-face display,” reported by appleinsider.com.

The company will also bring “True Color iPad Pro” screen technology to its smartphones for the first time to automatically adapt the colour and intensity of the display to match the light in your environment.

The technology will be added to iPhone 7S, iPhone 7S Plus and iPhone 8.

 San Francisco, Feb 23: SpaceX and Tesla CEO Elon Musk has quit the board of OpenAI, a non-profit artificial intelligence (AI) research company he co-founded that aims to promote and develop friendly AI that benefits the humanity.

“Elon Musk will depart the OpenAI Board but will continue to donate and advise the organisation. As Tesla continues to become more focused on AI, this will eliminate a potential future conflict for Elon,” the research group said in a blog post on Thursday, welcoming some new donors.

In 2014, Musk said AI was humanity’s biggest existential threat later adding that the United Nations needed to act to prevent a killer robot arms race.

OpenAI has fast become a significant voice in the global machine learning community.

Its research has been wide-ranging, including teaching computers to control robots with minimal instruction and the creation of AI agents to play popular video game Dota.

OpenAI recently contributed to the “Malicious Use of Artificial Intelligence” report, which warned AI was ripe for exploitation by rogue states, criminals and terrorists.

Drones turned into missiles, fake videos manipulating public opinion and automated hacking are just three of the threats from artificial intelligence in the wrong hands, experts said in the report.

They said that those designing AI systems need to do more to mitigate possible misuse of their technology and that governments must consider new laws to tackle such misuse.
