New Windows AI feature records everything you’ve done on your PC

Microsoft's newly released Recall feature for Copilot+ PCs captures snapshots of user activities, encrypting and storing them locally for easy retrieval. Unlike a cloud-based solution, Recall captures encrypted snapshots of your screen activity directly on your device's Qualcomm Snapdragon X Elite chip (with NPU) – a response for those wary of the cloud.

While this feature promises enhanced productivity, it raises significant privacy concerns. Despite Microsoft's assurances of encryption and local storage, the potential for misuse remains, particularly if someone gains access to your account. Recall requires a hefty 256GB of storage and is currently in beta, with Microsoft seeking user feedback to polish this potentially game-changing, or privacy-invasive (depending on your perspective) feature before full release.

AI Outperforms Humans in Theory-of-Mind Tests

Recent research reveals that large language models like GPT-4 exhibit remarkable proficiency in theory of mind tasks, surpassing expectations. Theory of mind, crucial for understanding others' mental states, is adeptly mimicked by LLMs such as ChatGPT.

This "theory of mind," crucial for understanding others' intentions, was thought to be beyond the grasp of machines. The study found LLMs like ChatGPT performing well on tasks designed to test this ability, including interpreting irony and deciphering strange stories. GPT-4 even outperformed humans in these areas.

However, some remain skeptical, questioning whether LLMs truly understand human thought or are simply mimicking patterns. Concerns linger about potential biases and anthropomorphization of LLMs. The study doesn't claim LLMs possess theory of mind, but it highlights their ability to mimic human-like reasoning with uncanny accuracy.
