Ford Motor and Anhui Zotye are in talks for a joint venture commitment in unspecified funding and operating details. China is the fastest growing electric vehicle market in the world and will have six million vehicles per year by 2025 with around four million being an all-electric vehicle.

China is the world's largest population that has struggled to combat pollution levels in major cities and is aggressively driving the purchase of electric vehicles. The government and the private sector spend tens of billions on investment projects, research and subsidies.

Tesla, Daimler AG and General Motors are among the companies that have announced plans to make electric vehicles in China and are projected to own at least a fifth of the country's car sales by 2025.

Ford on Tuesday said it had signed a memorandum of understanding with Zotye Auto to set up a joint venture and a new brand in a 50-50 stock stake. Zotye is the market leader in the all-electric small vehicle segment in China and sells more than 16,000 vehicles during 2017 to July or grew 56 percent.

Zotye also makes sporting vehicles and cargo trucks. Ford said it would release details on future brand, products and production volumes, pending final approval and regulatory approval.

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…
