5. We [Mannerisms]
We’ve been used to crazy tech accounting for decades and Uber and Lyft have recently upheld that tradition. Here’s another of that ilk – WeWork – or, as it has recently taken to calling itself: We. In 2018, We lost $1.9 billion on revenues of $1.8 billion.
4. SSDs getting cheaper
With NAND in oversupply, SSD suppliers are in a price war and SSD prices for PC OEMs are tumbling, says TrendForce. Average contract prices for 512GB and 1TB SSDs have a chance to plunge below $0.1 per GB by the end of this year, hitting an all-time low.
3. Cree to invest $1bn in SiC fab
Cree says it will invest up to $1 billion in the expansion of its silicon carbide capacity with the development of a state-of-the-art, automated 200mm silicon carbide fabrication facility and a materials mega factory at its U.S. campus headquarters in Durham, North Carolina. It marks the company’s largest investment to date in fueling its Wolfspeed silicon carbide and GaN on silicon carbide business.
2. Small Robots celebrate Spring
Small Robot Company, a British agritech start-up for sustainable farming, featured in the Spring Reception for the All-Party Parliamentary Group on the Fourth Industrial Revolution (4IR) earlier this week. Using robotics and artificial intelligence, the company has created an entirely new model for ecologically harmonious farming.
1. Raspberry Pi HAT brings RISC-V, AI, Edge Computing
An add-on to Raspberry Pi delivering AI-at-the-Edge development capability, can be pre-ordered now for $24.50 or bought for $28.90 when it becomes generally available on June 15th. The RISC-V based Grove AI HAT, from Seeed Studio, brings an AI capability to the Raspberry Pi, allowing it to be used to develop AI using neural nets.
