The digitalization wave accelerates the growth of data centers in Vietnam

One of the fastest growing markets in the world, the Asia Pacific (APAC) data center market, is expected to overtake the rest of the globe in terms of size over the next ten years. According to a recent analysis by Cushman & Wakefield, the sector’s environmental effect has intensified due to the rapid development in demand for data centers.

Tokyo and Shanghai, gigawatt markets, Tier 1 markets Singapore, Hong Kong, Mumbai, Sydney, and Seoul, and rising Southeast Asian markets Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh City, Bangkok, Kuala Lumpur, and Jakarta, are principally responsible for this rise.

Elon Musk shows off humanoid robot prototype at Tesla AI Day

Musk revealed Tesla was developing an Optimus-like humanoid robot during the final AI Day in August 2021. At the time, the company didn’t even have a prototype to display; instead, it brought a dancer on stage wearing a spandex unitard resembling a Tesla Bot.

This year, Tesla staff members were able to demonstrate the potential functionality of the humanoid robot they are creating, including with actuators created by Tesla that act as the robot’s muscles and adaptable robotic hands that will enable the robot to grip and move a variety of objects.

At Tesla 2022 AI Day, CEO Elon Musk explained that they were holding this AI Day event, and showing off its robot prototype, “to convince some of the most talented people in the world to join Tesla and help make it a reality”. This event was mainly for recruiting purposes.

The annual Tesla AI Day demonstrates the most cutting-edge technologies from all of the company’s operating divisions. It is comparable to Apple’s yearly release event, but with a stronger emphasis on what is to come in the future. Apple unveils iPhones that will be available for purchase the next week, while AI announces technologies that may not even be fully developed for several more years.

Tesla’s AI event is growing in popularity over time and has a livestream that is viewed by millions of people worldwide.

Google shuts down Translate service in China

Google announced that it had discontinued its service in mainland China due to low usage.

Users are now directed to the Hong Kong version of the service through Google Translate’s dedicated page for mainland China. This, however, is inaccessible from China’s mainland.

In 2010 due to severe internet censorship by the Chinese government, Google withdrew its search engine from China. Since that time, Google has struggled to do business in China. The discontinuation of Google Translate in China represents a further pullback by the American technology giant from the second-largest economy in the world.

Amazon, Microsoft and Google face UK investigation over dominance in cloud computing

A probe into Amazon, Microsoft, and Google’s dominance on the cloud computing industry is being investigated by the British media regulator Ofcom.

The watchdog will start research in the coming weeks to look at the status of companies offering public cloud infrastructure and determine whether they obstruct competition in any way. Ofcom stated that it will complete its investigation and publish a final report, outlining any issues and suggested solutions, within 12 months.

The investigation will concentrate on so-called “hyperscalers,” which allow companies to acquire processing power and data storage from external servers rather than hosting it on their own private infrastructure. Examples include Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud.
