Deploying Attention-Based Vision Transformers to Apple Neural Engine

Motivated by the effective implementation of transformer architectures in natural language processing, machine learning researchers introduced the concept of a vision transformer (ViT) in 2021. This innovative approach serves as an alternative to convolutional neural networks (CNNs) for computer vision applications, as detailed in the paper, An Image Is Worth 16x16 Words: Transformers for Image Recognition at Scale.

Advancing Speech Accessibility with Personal Voice

A voice replicator is a powerful tool for people at risk of losing their ability to speak, including those with a recent diagnosis of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) or other conditions that can progressively impact speaking ability. First introduced in May 2023 and made available on iOS 17 in September 2023, Personal Voice is a tool that creates a synthesized voice for such users to speak in FaceTime, phone calls, assistive communication apps, and in-person conversations.
