Prime Minister Narendra Modi emphasized prioritizing the concerns of the Global South, especially Africa, during the Outreach Session at the G7 Summit in Apulia, Italy. He highlighted India’s honor in having the African Union admitted as a permanent member of the G20 under its presidency.

Modi discussed India’s energy transition strategy, focusing on availability, accessibility, affordability, and acceptability, and reiterated India’s goal to achieve NET ZERO by 2070. He also called for global participation in India’s “Plant4Mother” campaign, initiated on World Environment Day, to promote tree plantation.

Addressing India’s AI mission, “AI for All,” Modi stressed that AI should promote progress and well-being. He noted India’s role as a founding member of the Global Partnership for AI and emphasized international collaboration.

Celebrating the G7’s 50th anniversary, Modi expressed satisfaction in attending the summit post his re-election, and shared India’s success in utilizing digital technology for public services, advocating for a human-centric approach to technology.

The Italian Prime Minister, in her opening remarks, emphasized the importance of global cooperation, respect, and peer-to-peer engagement to tackle global challenges like AI, energy, and issues concerning Africa and the Mediterranean.

Modi held bilateral meetings with Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida and Italian Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni on the sidelines of the summit. With Kishida, Modi affirmed prioritizing India-Japan ties in his third term and reviewed collaborative projects like the Mumbai-Ahmedabad High-Speed Rail and the India-Japan Industrial Competitiveness Partnership.

In discussions with Meloni, Modi explored enhancing defence and security cooperation, clean energy, manufacturing, space, AI, and critical minerals. They celebrated the signing of an MoU on Industrial Property Rights and a Letter of Intent for Cooperation in Energy Transition. Both leaders also stressed the need for early implementation of the Migration and Mobility Agreement to facilitate professional and academic exchanges.

Italy: good evening everyone, and thank you very much for accepting the invitation to participate in the G7 Outreach session here in Puglia under the Italian Presidency.

We didn’t choose this place by chance, we chose it because Puglia is a southern region of Italy and because it is a land that has historically represented a bridge between West and East, a place of dialogue in the ‘middle sea’ that, through northern Africa and the Middle East, connects the two great maritime spaces of the globe: the Atlantic on one side and the Indo-Pacific on the other.

This place and this wide outreach that we wanted to invite are a clear message from the G7 under the Italian Presidency. We will never accept the narrative that wants the ‘West against the rest’. We know we can only deal with the global challenges we are facing if we are able to cooperate with respect and with a peer-to-peer approach. Among the many global challenges that we are called on to face in this period, we decided to dedicate the Outreach session to those that we consider very pressing: Artificial Intelligence first of all, with the opportunities it opens up and the risks it hides; the Mediterranean, an area of crisis and a place of dialogue; the African continent, with which we work to build a completely new cooperation as equals; and, obviously, the need to deal without ideological approaches with climate change, which impacts above all on the nations of the Global South.

We will have two keynote speakers to start our work. His Holiness Pope Francis, who gave us the great honour to participate in our working session and will share with us his point of view on Artificial Intelligence. It is the first time that a Pontiff participates in a meeting of the Group of Seven, and this inevitably makes today’s appointment a historic moment. So, I will never thank you enough for being here, Your Holiness.

Then we will have His Excellency Mohamed Ould El Ghazouani, President of Mauritania and rotating Chair of the African Union, who will bring the point of view of African nations on the expectations of the continent.

I’ll stop here. Thank you again, Your Holiness. The floor is yours.

Kyiv, Ukraine — Russian forces launched a barrage of missiles and drones targeting the Kyiv region and five other areas in Ukraine during a nighttime attack on Wednesday. This assault comes as international diplomatic activities ramp up to address the ongoing conflict that has entered its third year.

Ukraine’s air force reported shooting down 29 out of 30 air targets, including four cruise missiles, one Kinzhal ballistic missile, and 24 Shahed drones. Despite the successful interception, several people sustained injuries. Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy lauded the air force’s efforts, emphasizing that such defensive successes could become routine if Ukraine received additional air defense systems. He reiterated his call for Western allies to provide more support, particularly air defense technology. In response, the United States has committed to sending another Patriot missile system, according to two U.S. officials.

The intensifying attacks coincide with a series of significant international meetings aimed at bolstering Ukraine’s defense and exploring pathways to peace. Leaders from the Group of Seven (G7) rich democracies, including U.S. President Joe Biden, are set to convene in Italy on Thursday for their annual summit. A key agenda item will be strategizing on how to channel more funds to Ukraine by leveraging frozen Russian assets.

On the same day, defense chiefs from the U.S., Europe, and other nations will gather in Brussels for their monthly discussion on Ukraine’s security needs. U.S. Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin will host this meeting, underscoring the urgency of addressing Ukraine’s military requirements as the conflict drags on.

Adding to the flurry of diplomatic activity, Switzerland will host a peace summit next weekend, drawing representatives from nearly 90 countries and organizations, including numerous European nations. Notably, Russia will not participate in this summit, highlighting the ongoing international isolation of Moscow.

Ukraine continues to face severe challenges on the battlefield. Its forces, outgunned and outnumbered, are striving to hold back the larger Russian army. Recent months have seen Ukrainian troops struggling with shortages of personnel, ammunition, and air defenses as Russian forces aim to disrupt national power supplies and break through front lines in the eastern regions. Military analysts suggest that Ukraine must endure the summer onslaught, train more soldiers, fortify defenses, and hope for an acceleration in Western military aid to potentially mount its own offensive in 2025.

Meanwhile, Russia’s efforts have been marked by incremental and costly gains. In the northeastern Kharkiv region, Russian units have been bogged down in the town of Vovchansk, according to Ukraine’s Commander-in-Chief Oleksandr Syrskyi. The Kremlin’s forces have also been concentrating their efforts on the partly occupied Donetsk region in eastern Ukraine, with an eye on strategic hubs like the hilltop city of Chasiv Yar.

The human toll of Europe’s largest conflict since World War II is staggering, with tens of thousands of casualties on both sides, including over 11,000 Ukrainian civilian deaths reported by the United Nations. As Ukraine looks to its Western allies for continued support, Russian President Vladimir Putin has sought assistance from nations like Iran and North Korea. Reports suggest that Putin may soon make a third visit to North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, further indicating the lengths to which Russia is going to secure resources for its war effort.

As the war grinds on, the international community remains divided, with both sides reaching out to friendly nations for military and economic support. The upcoming diplomatic engagements will be crucial in shaping the future course of the conflict and the prospects for a resolution.

Apple today previewed iOS 18, a groundbreaking update set to transform the iPhone experience with enhanced customization, a redesigned Photos app, powerful new connectivity options, and the introduction of Apple Intelligence, a sophisticated personal intelligence system. This major release marks a significant leap forward in making the iPhone more personal, capable, and intelligent than ever before.

A New Era of Customization

With iOS 18, Apple introduces unprecedented levels of customization across the Home Screen, Lock Screen, and Control Center. Users can now arrange apps and widgets freely in any open space on the Home Screen, even placing them above the dock for quicker access. This flexibility extends to the Lock Screen, where users can switch or remove controls at the bottom, choosing from a gallery of options for a tailored experience. The redesigned Control Center offers new customization and flexibility, allowing users to add controls from third-party apps and organize them into personalized groups for media playback, home controls, and connectivity.

Photos App Gets a Major Overhaul

The Photos app receives its biggest redesign to date, aimed at helping users easily find and relive their cherished moments. A unified, single view now displays photos in a familiar grid format, enhanced with new collections that organize content by themes. Users can pin favorite collections for quick access, while a new carousel view showcases daily highlights featuring people, pets, places, and more. Autoplaying content within the app brings photo libraries to life, and customizable features allow users to tailor the experience to their unique needs.

Staying Connected in Innovative Ways

iOS 18 brings significant enhancements to the Messages app, including dynamic text effects and new formatting options such as bold, underline, italics, and strikethrough. Users can now express themselves more vividly with animated appearances for letters, words, phrases, or emojis. The app also introduces Messages via satellite, enabling communication when cellular or Wi-Fi connections are unavailable. This feature leverages existing iPhone satellite technology to send and receive texts, emojis, and Tapbacks over iMessage and SMS.

For the first time, the Messages app supports RCS (Rich Communication Services), providing a richer media experience and more reliable group messaging compared to traditional SMS and MMS. This update ensures seamless communication across devices, enhancing user connectivity.

Mail and Safari Enhancements

Later this year, Mail will introduce on-device categorization to streamline inbox management, sorting emails into categories like Primary, Transactions, Updates, and Promotions. A new digest view compiles relevant emails from a single business, allowing users to quickly scan important information.

Safari, the world’s fastest browser, now offers a redesigned Reader experience and Highlights feature that surfaces key information about webpages. Machine learning technology enables users to review summaries, locate key details, and enjoy articles without distraction.

Introducing the Passwords App

Building on the foundation of Keychain, the new Passwords app consolidates passwords, passkeys, Wi-Fi passwords, and verification codes into one convenient place. The app also alerts users about common password weaknesses and potential data breaches, enhancing security.

Privacy and Security Innovations

iOS 18 emphasizes user privacy with new features like locked and hidden apps, ensuring that sensitive information remains private. Users can lock apps with Face ID, Touch ID, or a passcode, and hide them from search and notifications. Additionally, iOS 18 allows users to selectively share contacts with apps and seamlessly connect third-party accessories without exposing their entire network.

Apple Intelligence: A Leap Forward

Apple Intelligence, deeply integrated into iOS 18, iPadOS 18, and macOS Sequoia, leverages the power of generative models combined with personal context to deliver highly relevant and useful experiences. This new system enhances writing with systemwide tools for rewriting, proofreading, and summarizing text across various apps. Image Playground allows users to create playful images, while the new Clean Up tool in Photos removes distracting background objects without altering the subject.

Siri becomes more natural and contextually relevant, with the ability to switch between text and voice communication. Private Cloud Compute ensures privacy in AI processing, with data used solely to fulfill user requests and not stored or accessed by Apple.

Additional Features and Enhancements

  • Apple Maps: Users can explore national park hikes, create custom walking routes, and access offline maps. A new Places Library allows saving favorite hikes and locations with personal notes.

In a nail-biting encounter at the T20 World Cup 2024, India clinched a narrow six-run victory over arch-rivals Pakistan in New York, showcasing a dramatic and fiercely contested match that kept fans on the edge of their seats. This win not only restored India’s confidence after a surprising Super Over defeat to co-hosts USA in Dallas but also reaffirmed their dominance in the iconic cricket rivalry.

A Battle of Nerves

Held at the Nassau County International Cricket Stadium, the match witnessed India being bowled out for 119 in 19 overs on a challenging pitch. Despite the modest total, India’s formidable pace attack, led by the exceptional Jasprit Bumrah, managed to defend the score against a determined Pakistani side.

Bumrah’s Match-Winning Spell

Jasprit Bumrah emerged as the hero of the match with a phenomenal bowling performance, claiming 3 wickets for just 14 runs in his four-over spell, including 11 dot balls and only conceding a solitary boundary. His efforts, combined with Hardik Pandya’s 2 for 24, were instrumental in choking Pakistan’s middle order during the crucial death overs.

Pakistan’s Stuttered Chase

Pakistan, at one stage, seemed to be cruising towards victory, with Mohammad Rizwan anchoring their innings. They were well-placed at 80 for three in 14 overs, poised to achieve their second T20 World Cup win against India in three years. However, Bumrah’s crucial dismissals of Rizwan and Iftikhar Ahmed turned the tide in India’s favor. Pakistan’s batting lineup faltered under pressure, managing only two boundaries in the death overs and ultimately finishing at 113 for seven in 20 overs.

Reactions from Cricket Legends

Cricket legends were quick to react to India’s thrilling win. Batting icon Sachin Tendulkar praised the Indian bowlers and took a playful dig at Pakistan, tweeting, “India vs Pakistan. New continent, same result. T20 may be a batters’ game, but in New York, bowlers were the Apple of our eyes today. What a thrilling match! Great atmosphere and a wonderful exhibition of our great game in America. Well played, India #INDvPAK #T20WorldCup.”

Virender Sehwag lauded Bumrah’s stellar performance, posting, “Haar se Jitane waale ko Bumrah kehte hain. What a fabulous spell and a very special win in New York.”

Yuvraj Singh, former T20 World Cup winner and one of this year’s tournament ambassadors, attributed the victory to Rohit Sharma’s astute captaincy. “India wins a thrilling low-scoring contest against Pakistan! Rohit’s @ImRo45 strategic masterclass shines through! His clever use of bowlers was the game-changer. Pakistan’s batting struggled to counter India’s precise attack. Well-deserved win for Team India.”

Looking Ahead

Following this intense clash, India will face co-hosts and current table-toppers USA on Wednesday in New York. Their final league game is set against Canada on Saturday in Dallas, where they aim to continue their winning momentum and secure a strong position in the tournament.

The victory against Pakistan has not only lifted the spirits of the Indian team but also set a high standard for the remaining matches in the T20 World Cup 2024, promising more excitement and fierce competition in the days to come.

Privacy-centric search engine DuckDuckGo has announced a groundbreaking feature that allows users to anonymously access popular AI chatbots such as OpenAI’s ChatGPT, Anthropic’s Claude 3 Haiku, Mixtra 8x7B, and Meta’s Llama 3. This new service, aptly named AI Chat, aims to provide the benefits of generative AI while addressing privacy concerns.

A New Era of Private AI Interaction

DuckDuckGo’s AI Chat is designed to empower users to engage with advanced AI models without compromising their privacy. The feature is free to use with a daily limit, and users can deactivate it whenever they choose. A paid tier with a higher daily usage limit and access to more AI models is also in the pipeline.

“We believe people should be able to use the Internet and other digital tools without feeling like they need to sacrifice their privacy in the process,” the company stated. “So, we meet people where they are, developing products that add a layer of privacy to the everyday things they do online. That’s been our approach across the board – first with search, then browsing, email, and now with generative AI via AI Chat.”

How to Use DuckDuckGo’s AI Chat

To utilize the AI Chat feature, users simply need to navigate to duck.ai or duckduckgo.com/chat. Once on the AI search page, they can select their preferred generative AI model and start interacting with it as they would with any other chatbot. The key difference is that these interactions are completely anonymous.

DuckDuckGo ensures that chat requests appear to originate from DuckDuckGo itself, rather than the individual user, thereby maintaining user anonymity. Additionally, similar to its traditional search capabilities, DuckDuckGo offers a “fire button” that users can tap to clear the last chat.

Privacy Measures and Data Handling

DuckDuckGo has emphasized that it does not save or store any chats. To further enhance privacy, the company has partnered with the AI providers to ensure that all chat entries are deleted within 30 days. Importantly, these interactions will not be used to train or improve the AI models, offering an additional layer of security and peace of mind for users concerned about their data being used without their consent.

The Future of Private AI

With this innovative feature, DuckDuckGo continues its mission to provide privacy-first tools for internet users. By integrating AI chat capabilities, the company not only enhances its service offerings but also sets a new standard for privacy in the realm of artificial intelligence.

As AI technology becomes increasingly integral to everyday tasks, DuckDuckGo’s AI Chat stands out as a pivotal development. It bridges the gap between advanced AI utility and stringent privacy requirements, offering users the best of both worlds.

Conclusion

DuckDuckGo’s introduction of anonymous access to powerful AI chatbots represents a significant advancement in privacy-focused technology. By allowing users to harness the capabilities of ChatGPT, Claude 3 Haiku, Mixtra 8x7B, and Meta Llama 3 without sacrificing their privacy, DuckDuckGo is redefining the landscape of digital interaction. As the feature rolls out, it will be interesting to see how it influences user engagement and sets new benchmarks for privacy standards in AI-driven applications.
