SK Hynix Plans to Spend $107 Billion Building Four Memory Chip Plants

#artificialintelligence

South Korea's SK Hynix Inc on Thursday said it would spend $107 billion building four factories, as the memory chip maker seeks to maintain its competitiveness in the face of Chinese efforts to become a leading chipmaking nation. The chip fabrication plants will be built on a 4.5 million square meter site south of Seoul beginning 2022, complementing two existing domestic factories that will receive a separate 55 trillion won ($49 billion) investment over the next decade. The plans for the factories, producing DRAM and next-generation chips, come as chipmakers prepare for a surge in demand to power new technology such as fifth-generation (5G) communication networks and artificial intelligence, even as a slowdown in smartphone sales kills off a two-year chip boom. "Though there is not enough chip demand for autonomous cars now, I believe there will be much more demand for self-driving vehicles in the next 10 years or as early as in 2023 or 2024," said analyst Kim Young-gun at Mirae Asset Daewoo.

SK Telecom and Deutsche Telekom will collaborate to create a new blockchain ID that will borderless, they said. SK Telecom and Deutsche Telekom will collaborate to create a blockchain ID with the aim to ease authentication processes, the companies have announced. The South Korean telco will sign an memorandum of understanding to that effect with its German counterpart's research arm, T-Labs, at the upcoming Mobile World Congress (MWC). The two will use blockchain technology to create a mobile digital ID that can be used for authentication, entry control, transactions, and contracts. The ultimately aim will be to make a "borderless" ID, much like a passport, that can used across different countries.

Nike Adapt BB sneakers stop working after Android app breaks

The Independent

People's shoes are crashing after a Nike app stopped working. Nike's new Adapt BB shoes have been hailed as the future of sneakers, after they were released just days ago. They use futuristic motors to allow them to be precisely tightened up automatically, without any shoelaces or other input. All of that can be controlled by an app, which allows people to slip on the shoes and then let the motors do the work of tightening them up, in a way shoelaces would traditionally work. They use much the same technology that allowed Nike to recreate the self-lacing shoes from Back To The Future in a limited run.

Self-driving Tesla vehicles could be ready to hit the road sooner than expected. Billionaire tech mogul Elon Musk said he's'certain' the technology needed for self-driving Teslas will be ready by the end of this year. However, he cautioned that it take a while longer before humans will be able to safely fall asleep behind the wheel while their Tesla zooms down the highway. A fully self-driving Tesla could soon be ready to hit the road. Tech mogul Elon Musk said he's'certain' the tech needed for self-driving Teslas will be ready by the end of this year'I think we will be feature complete - full self-driving - this year,' Musk said during a podcast interview on Tuesday.
