How much revenue does an app generate?

For example, take a look at the […]

Here’s why Artificial Intelligence is so power-hungry

Artificial intelligence is getting more expensive to develop, and the cost is growing faster than the energy efficiency of the models. This is because they are trained many times with different structures, and the best one is selected. For example a model called Bidirectional Encoder Representations from Transformers (BERT) used 3.3 billion words from English books […]

Going App-Less with Ephemeral Apps

The Appstore model has been a huge success for Apple. Over the past 10 years, it has generated over 100 billion US$ in sales. However, the […]
