South Korea Will Try to Save Itself From the Inevitable Robot Takeover by Investing $860 Million in AI

South Korea appears to be taking a “if you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em” approach to the forthcoming machine revolution. On Thursday, president Park Geun-hye announced plans to invest roughly $860 million in the country’s artificial intelligence industry by 2020, largely as a response to the recent shellacking of countryman Lee Sedol at the hands of—you guessed it—Google’s artificial intelligence bot AlphaGo.

Korean report supports KGI prediction that Samsung will make 75% of A9 chips for next iPhone

samsung-Xian-fab.

Korean news site MK Business News (via Reuters) is reporting that Samsung will make 75% of the A9 chip for the next iPhone. This matches an earlier detailed prediction by KGI Research, which stated that the balance of the chips would be made by Global Foundry, and is in line with a statement by Samsung which last year confirmed it as a major supplier of the new chip.

The Samsung-fabbed chips will, says the report, be made in the USA … 

MK Business News says that Samsung will make the chips in its plant in Austin, Texas. It does, however, refer to the next iPhone as the iPhone 7, when it will almost certainly be the iPhone 6s.

The earlier KGI note suggested that Apple will be diversifying its chip production, with Samsung, TSMC, Global Foundry, Qualcomm and Intel all included in the mix. Samsung is reportedly making all the S1 chips for the first-generation Apple Watch, while TSMC is slated to pick up the S2 chips for the next-generation of Apple’s first wearable.

Potato Chip Boat Proves There's Far Too Much Air In Your Bag of Snacks

We all know the frustration of tearing open a huge, tantalizing bag of chips or nachos or Funyons or whatever and realizing the bag's 2/3rds air. Two South Korean college students just proved how empty our snack vessels are, by paddling a raft made of unopened potato chip bags across a river.
