Are you sometimes unsure whether your cat is tired or plotting your assassination? You’re not alone because cats don’t show their emotions too well.

That’s why scientists came up with something called the Feline Grimace Scale, a method of assessing the occurrence or severity of pain experienced by cats according to objective scoring of facial expressions. Now, an Alberta-based animal health technology company called Sylvester.ai has paired the Feline Grimace Scale with an artificial intelligence algorithm to create an app that can tell you how your cat is feeling.

The app is called Tably, and you can download it directly from the App Store. To use it, you simply need to point your smartphone’s camera at your furry friend and wait for a short while for the app to analyze a variety of facial features, including eye-narrowing, muzzle tension, and how whiskers change, to determine how your cat is feeling.

According to Michelle Priest, Tably senior product manager, the app can reach an accuracy of up to 97 percent when provided a high-quality and full-face front image of the cat. That’s good enough not only for concerned cat owners but also for young veterinarians, who may not have the experience necessary to tell whether a cat is feeling pain.

The AI algorithm behind Tably was trained at the Wild Rose Cat Clinic of Calgary. “I love working with cats, have always grown up with cats,” said Dr. Liz Ruelle, DVM, DABVP Feline Specialist at the clinic. “For other colleagues, new grads, who maybe have not had quite so much experience, it can be very daunting to know — is your patient painful?”.

Tably is an excellent example of cutting-edge technology being used to positively impact the lives of those who don’t understand it themselves (although you never know with cats).

samsung's new exynos 2200 smartphone chip comes with amd xclipse gpu

Samsung’s Exynos smartphone series of ARM-based system-on-chips (SoCs) traditionally comes with Mali GPUs, but the company’s new premium SoC is breaking this tradition by featuring an Xclipse GPU with AMD’s RDNA 2 graphics architecture.

The new GPU, together with 8 Armv9 CPU cores (1 powerful Cortex-X2 core, 3 balanced Cortex-A710 cores, and 4 efficient Cortex-A510 cores) and an upgraded neural processing unit (NPU), are supposed to enable next-level mobile gaming experiences, support camera sensors with a resolution of up to 200 MP, and generally ensure smooth performance under all circumstances.

“Built on the most advanced 4-nanometer (nm) EUV (extreme ultraviolet lithography) process, and combined with cutting-edge mobile, GPU and NPU technology, Samsung has crafted the Exynos 2200 to provide the finest experience for smartphone users” said Yongin Park, President of System LSI Business at Samsung Electronics.

Samsung named its new GPU “Xclipse” to reflect the fact that it’s positioned between console and traditional mobile graphic processors. The South Korean conglomerate believes that the GPU will bring an end to the old era of mobile gaming and usher in a new era characterized by features that have until now been associated primarily with PC gaming, such as hardware-accelerated ray tracing and variable rate shading.

According to David Wang, Senior Vice President of Radeon Technologies Group at AMD, the Xclipse GPU is the first result of multiple planned generations of AMD RDNA graphics in Exynos SoCs, so fans of Samsung smartphones have a lot to look forward to in the future.

In addition to the already mentioned performance-oriented improvements, the Exynos 2200 integrates a better 5G modem capable of achieving speeds of up to 10 Gbps by utilizing both 4G LTE and 5G NR signals at the same time. The SoC’s Integrated Secure Element (iSE) can safely store cryptographic information for enhanced data security and privacy.

The Exynos 2200 is currently being mass-produced, and it’s expected that it will be one of the main selling points of the upcoming Galaxy S22 smartphone.
