CEO of Garansindo Group, Muhammad Al Abdullah, said Gesits production is set to begin in the first quarter of 2018 with an initial production volume of 50,000 units and will continue to be added to at least 100,000 units annually. The factory has been prepared in West Java which will be facilitated by Wika.

"In the future, the production capacity will continue to be developed up to 100,000 units per year, but for this initial phase 50,000 units are in collaboration with Wika in joint venture status, where we are both investing," said Abdullah.

"Wika has experienced a long time supply for major automotive manufacturers, but we also open ourselves to accept components from outside parties," said Abdullah.

Gesits has passed the road test as far as 1,200 kilometers from Jakarta and finished in Bali in November 2016 and to enter the mass production stage will be tested the road as far as 60,000 kilometers in September and October as part of the preparation of the maintenance plan.

This electric-powered automatic scooter uses 5KW of power, a maximum speed of 100 km per hour and 80-100 km of travel in one charging with 2 hours recharging using a home socket. Abdullah said that until now the company already has orders up to 25,000 units.

"Gesits manufacturing cooperation is a pride for WIKA to be dedicated," said Wika Industry and Construction Director Ferry Hendriyanto.

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…
