Microsoft is working on AI chips across its different devices, top exec says

Microsoft is working on an artificial intelligence (AI) chip for its next generation HoloLens headset.

And the U.S. technology giant could take it to other products in its hardware range, Panos Panay, corporate vice president of devices at Microsoft, told CNBC on Tuesday.

In July, Microsoft disclosed it was working on a processor for the second generation of HoloLens, a headset that allows users to interact and touch digital images overlaid on the real world. Microsoft calls this “mixed reality.” The AI chip will allow HoloLens to do things like recognize objects in the line of sight.

It marks Microsoft’s first foray into AI chips, as it looks to take on rivals such as Apple and Google.

The software giant is also looking to expand its offering. When asked by CNBC if Microsoft will introduce AI chips across the device range, Panay said “yes”.

“We have to continue to find those pieces of silicon, those chipsets that have to be developed to bring sensors to life, to connect people with each other and with their products,” Panay told CNBC in a TV interview.

Microsoft now has an array of devices. It has expanded its Surface line of tablets, which was launched in 2012, to include a laptop and desktop. It also has the Xbox gaming console and HoloLens headset.

There’s an arms race in AI chips at the moment. Huawei introduced its own AI chip called the Kirin 970 that it put in the Mate 10 smartphone released earlier this year. Apple’s new iPhones also have the company’s own A11 bionic chip inside.

Madrid summons Catalonia's leader in exile to testify in court

Spain’s High Court has summoned Catalonia’s deposed leader to testify in Madrid later this week as the country’s judicial system weighs up whether to proceed with criminal charges against the pro-independence leadership.

The court in Madrid issued a summons Tuesday for former Catalan President Carles Puigdemont and 13 other members of his government to appear in court on Thursday and Friday.

The summons comes after Spain’s chief prosecutor called Monday for charges of rebellion, sedition and embezzlement to be brought against members of the Catalan pro-independence government and parliament for their roles in the independence bid.

In a summons issued Tuesday, the investigating judge, Carmen Lamela, said that the first step was to summon the 14 defendants for questioning before a decision on whether to prosecute is taken. A bond of 6,207,450 euros ($7.21 million euros) was set for the defendants.

Catalonia’s government declared independence Friday, following a symbolic referendum on secession from Spain on October 1. Spain reacted by imposing direct rule on the wealthy northeast region, sacking its government and calling fresh elections for December 21.

Facing potential arrest and possible heavy prison sentences of up to 30 years if prosecuted and found guilty of rebellion, the former Catalan President Puigdemont and several members of his government traveled to Brussels on Monday.

Giving a press conference Tuesday, Puigdemont said he was not in Belgium to claim asylum or to escape justice but to put the “Catalan problem at the heart of the European Union.” He said that he would return to Spain when he had “guarantees” of a “fair and just treatment” there.

The summons noted that this is only the initial phase of the proceedings and is not a judicial decision on whether to charge the defendants. It is unclear whether Puigdemont and his colleagues will abide by the summons, however. If they do not, they could face arrest.

Spain’s Supreme Court began processing rebellion and sedition charges against the speaker of the Catalan parliament, Carme Forcadell, and five other parliamentary members on Tuesday.

Australia’s famed Uluru outback monolith to be closed to climbers

Australia's famed Uluru outback monolith to be closed to climbers

Australia’s world-famous Uluru, formerly known as Ayers Rock, will be closed to climbers from 2019, its management board said on Wednesday, ending a decades-long campaign by Aborigines to protect their sacred monolith in the Northern Territory.

A board of eight traditional owners and four government officials voted unanimously to close the rock to climbers, a spokesperson told Reuters.

“The climb is a men’s sacred area, the men have closed it,” chairman Sammy Wilson added in a statement. “It has cultural significance that includes certain restrictions.”

The UNESCO World Heritage-listed 348-metre (1,142 ft) rock, known for its shifting red-ochre colours, is a top tourist drawcard, attracting around 300,000 visitors each year, despite its remote desert location near Alice Springs.

The traditional owners of Uluru, the Anangu people, have called for the climb to be closed since 1985, when the park was placed in indigenous hands.

The rock’s board said in a report in 2010 that they would close the attraction to climbers if the proportion of visitors who tried to climb it dropped below 20 percent.

They took the matter to a vote on Wednesday after data showed the number of climbers had fallen below that threshold, from about three quarters throughout the 1990s to just 16.2 per cent between 2011 and 2015.

The ban will take effect on Oct. 26, 2019, exactly 34 years after Uluru was handed back to its traditional owners.

Australians are still the most common visitors to climb the rock, followed by the Japanese, according to Parks Australia.

The climb is closed about 77 percent of the time due to dangerous weather or cultural reasons.

There have been 36 confirmed fatalities at Uluru since records were first kept in the 1950s, with the most recent in 2010.

HP completes purchase of Samsung printer business

HP Inc., maker of printers and personal computers, on Wednesday said it completed its purchase of Samsung Electronics’ printer business in a deal valued at $1.05 billion.

The acquisition will expand HP’s portfolio and help to disrupt the $55 billion A3 copier market with multi-function printers that are simple to use but have the same high performance level as that of copiers, the company said.

“As we ignite a renaissance in printing, we’re thrilled to bring together the industry’s best and brightest talent,” Dion Weisler, president and CEO at HP, said in a statement. “Together, we will build more than 30 years of print leadership to accelerate our strategy, disrupt new market opportunities, and provide our customers and partners with unique and highly innovative print solutions.”

The acquisition was first announced in September last year.

As part of the deal, HP will also have access to more than 6,500 print patents from Samsung and a workforce of nearly 1,300 researchers and engineers that are experts in laser technology, imaging electronics and supplies and accessories.

Samsung, as part of the agreement, will make a $100 million to $300 million equity investment in HP through open market purchases.

Meanwhile, the PC and printer maker is also looking at 3-D printing as a potential growth area. Weisler told CNBC’s Jim Cramer last month that HP got into 3-D printing to get ahead of the inevitable manufacturing disruption.

HP said Wednesday it will provide financial guidance on its fourth-quarter earnings call. Previously, executives at the company said they are cautiously optimistic heading into next year.

Thanksgiving flights to carry record number of flyers

With the economy picking up strength and airfares staying relatively low, a record number people are expected to fly during the Thanksgiving holiday period.

“Low fares and increased availability of seats continue to make air travel widely accessible,” said John Heimlich, vice president and chief economist of Airlines for America, a trade group representing carriers.

Airlines for America estimates 28.5 million people will fly U.S. airlines between Friday, Nov. 17, and Tuesday, Nov. 28. If that happens it would be a 3 percent increase over 2016.

The busiest day of the Thanksgiving weekend will be Sunday, Nov. 26, when an estimated 2.88 million people are expected to take a flight.

Airlines have been preparing for more business in the fourth quarter by adding capacity through additional flights. While the customers are welcome, the increase in capacity is weighing on passenger revenue per available seat mile, a key metric to determine the profitability of airlines.

Following mixed earnings for the third quarter, airline stocks have been under pressure. Since hitting a three-month high in early October, the NYSE Arca Airline Index has dropped more than 7 percent.

World capital of block chain is now rising in the Middle East

Dubai stands out for two reasons: the breadth of the applications that may develop in a global trade hub, and the government’s commitment. Dubai has the world’s busiest airport and is a gateway to growth markets in Southeast Asia and Africa.

When 1776, a Washington, D.C.-based incubator, decided to host a blockchain start-up competition, it did so in its branch located in Dubai, said Brandon Pollack, co-founder and head of global affairs. “They take a broad lens to the opportunities; they are not just focused on payments,” he said. “They are bringing real estate, health care and financial services into the picture, for example.”

Wieck pointed to some of the areas that are ripe for innovation, including cross-border payments and settlements, trade requirements and visas.

But the applications are much broader. For instance, she said, a blockchain built to keep track of food could revolutionize food safety systems– you’d have a perfect record of whether the “chain of cold” was ever broken. In the medical sphere, you’d know how long an organ for transplant was in transport. A blockchain developed for gems could make it harder to finance a conflict with blood diamonds.

Companies from IBM to Emirates Airline to Careem, a tech unicorn, are launching blockchain experiments in Dubai. Careem, which is sometimes called the Uber of the Middle East, is writing a blockchain application that will allow riders to use Emirates Airline miles to buy rides.

Chinese consumers are getting very excited about the iPhone X. But for Apple, which has struggled to keep up with the onslaught of competition in China’s smartphone market, an upturn in fortunes may not yet be on the cards.

Already, Chinese buyers are rushing to get their pre-orders before the official product launch on Friday. JD.com, the country’s second-largest e-commerce site after Alibaba’s Tmall, received over 2.5 million pre-orders. Other sellers have tallied about another 3 million of such orders.

Warrant issued for Rose McGowan in relation to drug charge

An arrest warrant has been obtained for actress Rose McGowan for felony possession of a controlled substance.

The felony charge stems from a police investigation of personal belongings left behind on a United flight arriving at Washington Dulles International Airport on Jan. 20.Police say the items tested positive for narcotics. The Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority Police Department obtained the warrant on Feb. 1

Police say they’ve attempted to contact McGowan so she can appear in a Loudoun County, Virginia, court. The warrant has been entered into a national law enforcement database.

McGowan has been one of the leading voices against sexual harassment in Hollywood, and tweeted earlier this month that she was raped by a man with the initials “HW.” The Hollywood Reporter said McGowan confirmed she was referring to disgraced media mogul Harvey Weinstein.
