Australia builds special superhighway for electric vehicles

Australia builds special toll roads for electric vehicles. Australia is taking a definite step toward future mobility by building a special superhighway for electric vehicles along the coast of Queensland. Australian state minister Steven Miles said the road construction would be 1,118 miles (1,800 km) from Coolangatta in the south to Cairns in the north and equipped with no-charge charging stations by Tritium and Schneider Electric.

The latest step to reduce carbon emissions by increasing the use of electric vehicles where Australia prepares facilities along the coast beside the Great Barrier Reef where more than two million people visit the coral reefs each year and generate more than US $ 1.53 billion yearly.

"This is an ambitious project, but we want the presence of as much support as possible for electric vehicles and even have their products. This is part of the transition to a low-emission future," Miles said.

The initial phase of the project builds a superhighway in 18 cities and will operate within the next six months. The initial government support for the project came into being when the Australian Chief Executive of Electric Vehicle Council, Behyad Jafari, mentioned the Queensland area as serious with electric vehicles.

"This step provides certainty to open investments and grow our economy, create new jobs that are skilled," said Jafari.

The use of electric vehicles in Australia is still less when compared with China, Europe and the United States. However, Australian Energy Minister Josh Frydenberg said the number of electric vehicle users will continue to grow to around 12,000 units by 2020 and around 1 million units by 2030.

Other countries including Britain and France ban the sale of gasoline and diesel vehicles starting in 2040. The mayors of Paris, Madrid, Mexico City and Athens say they plan to ban diesel vehicles in the city center by 2025.

Conservative cleric vice president candidate of Indonesia, abstentions rose

Tinuku - Indonesian President Joko Widodo chose an elderly Muslim cleric Ma'ruf Amin as vice presidential candidate for the 2019 presidential election to become a red record for human rights activists. The figure who actively strives to criminalize minorities and sexuality is seen as a way to reverse human rights enforcement.

Lokataru's director, Haris Azhar, is still campaigning not to elect the presidential and vice presidential candidates. The declaration of two candidate pairs, especially the choice by Joko Widodo to Ma'ruf Amin as vice president and presidential candidate Prabowo Subianto on Sandiaga Uno as vice president, strengthened the minds of human rights activists.

"It's still the same. In fact, it is increasingly proven. From a human rights perspective, all candidates are violators of human rights. So I think the four candidates are the same, not friendly to human rights, not friendly to the environment," said Azhar told to Deutsche Welle Indones…

Nvidia expands in artificial intelligence, but Intel has taken root

Tinuku - Nvidia Corp dominates chips for training computers to think like humans, but it faces an entrenched competitor in a major avenue for expansion in the artificial intelligence chip market Intel Corp.

Nvidia chips dominate the AI training chip market, where huge amounts of data help algorithms “learn” a task such how to recognize a human voice, but one of the biggest growth areas in the field will be deploying computers that implement the “learned” tasks. Intel dominates data centers where such tasks are likely to be carried out.

But Intel processors already are widely used for taking a trained artificial intelligence algorithm and putting it to use, for example by scanning incoming audio and translating that into text-based requests, what is called “inference.” Intel’s chips can still work just fine there, especially when paired with huge amounts of memory.

That market could be bigger than the training market who sees an inference market of $11.8 billion by 2021, versus $8.2 bi…
