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.

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…
