We do a lot of things on our computers every day, and while programs like web browsers allow you to save your browsing history, there’s no easy way to go back in time to view something you have done – until now. Rewind AI has announced a new program that records everything you do on your Mac, so you can refresh your memory whenever you want.
A new way to back up your work on your Mac
As the name suggests, Rewind AI records everything you see, say, or hear while using your Mac. With these recordings, users can easily return to a specific time of day to watch it again. But the app does more than just keep a long recording.
There aren’t many details about the technology behind the app, but the company’s website says it uses “mind-boggling compression” that can hold large amounts of data without bulk. of the good. The developers say that 10.5GB will be a 2.8MB file. This allows Rewind AI to “keep track of years of recording.”
The app also uses OCR to recognize text information combined with audio information to provide powerful search capabilities. In a short demo video shared by the company, we can see that the app’s sidebar has a search feature where users can go back to a specific time of day by clicking on a word or phrase.
Interestingly, Rewind AI is made for Macs with Apple Silicon chips. Because it uses the specific features of Apple’s SoCs to hold everything together without using too much resources like CPU and RAM. “It’s invisible,” says the app’s website.
However, there are many personal opinions about a program that records everything that users do on their computer. The Rewind AI website says that the recordings are done locally and there is no cloud integration. Users can turn off recordings at any time, and exclude specific programs from recordings.
However, ArsTechnica Note that there are many other conditions that can affect users. This includes abuse of authorities, law enforcement, and oppressive governments. Not to mention legal issues for recording sensitive information or data.
No word on when Rewind AI will be released to the public. Those who want to test the platform can sign up on the company’s website. Would you use such a program? Tell us in the comments below.
