Are you worried about your Mac learning about you and what you do? Machine learning isn’t well understood, so here’s an introduction.
Trying macOS betas, support for Catalina, is the M1 dead, and what does the ANE do all day? What should come from WWDC this year.
Requirements, which apps support it, how to access it in each of those, why some images don’t work, and how to troubleshoot it.
How Apple and third-party developers can update the apps you use without your being aware, even if you have automatic updates disabled.
Mints gains a new tool to examine the activities of triald and trial in the Unified log. Here’s a quick survey of what happens in a quiet day.
How can you tell when software uses the Neural Engine in an M1 series Mac? How much power does it use, and what is Espresso? Mysteries unravelled.
How Apple’s Neural Engine ensures that your data remains private, rather than uploading it for processing on servers. And it spares your CPU cores from running neural computation.
For some images, Visual Look Up fails so completely that it’s not even offered. Could this be exploited as a way of blocking image recognition?
Not only does this version of Mints extract information from the log detailing what happens during Visual Look Up, but it includes it own browser window to look up with.
Remember Apple’s failed attempt to detect CSAM in images? Would that have been similar to the way that Visual Look Up works? Is this the thin end of the wedge?
