Slashdot: Chipmaker Analog Devices To Buy Rival Maxim For About $21 Billion

フィード by slashdotorg-feed
Hammeh writes: Semiconductor maker Analog Devices said on Monday it would buy rival Maxim Integrated Products for about $21 billion in the largest U.S. deal this year, aiming to boost its market share in automotive and 5G chipmaking. The deal, which is also Analog's biggest, will create a chipmaking force with a combined enterprise value of about $68 billion that will compete with larger rivals including Texas Instruments). Analog Devices Chief Executive Vincent Roche told Reuters in an interview that the combined engineering teams would help the resulting company design more specialized, higher-margin chips for customers such as automakers. "If you're doing commodities, you're at the mercy of the of the heavy hammer of the procurement folks," Roche said. "But our game is about getting there first, getting out on the edge and making a real impact at the application level for our customers." The companies said the deal added Maxim's strength in automotive and data center markets to ADI's broad industrial, communications and digital healthcare segments.

IBM

未来からの求人、見たことある?

タレコミ by headless
headless 曰く、

IBMがオープンソースのコンテナオーケストレーションツールKubernetesの管理者経験12年以上という要件で、アーキテクト/エンジニアを募集していたようだ(The Registerの記事)。

うっかりすると見過ごしてしまうところだが、GitHubでKubernetesプロジェクトに最初のコミットが行われたのは2014年6月7日、バージョン1.0のフィーチャーフリーズは2015年5月22日とのことで、現在はまだ要件を満たす人が存在しない。この求人は既にIBMのサイトから削除(Googleキャッシュ)されているが、インドの求人サイトIntelliJobsには複数求人残っている。

WebフレームワークFastAPIを開発したSebastián Ramírez氏は、作ってから1年半ほどしか経過していないFastAPIについて、4年以上の経験を要求する求人を見かけたそうだ。スラドの皆さんは、このような未来からの求人を目にしたことがあるだろうか。

Slashdot: DNC and RNC Warn Campaigns About Using TikTok

フィード by slashdotorg-feed
The Democratic and Republican national committees have warned their staffs about using the Chinese-owned app TikTok. From a report: The Democratic National Committee warned Democratic campaigns, committees and state parties Friday to take additional security precautions when using TikTok. In the email, the DNC security team wrote, "We continue to advise campaign staff to refrain from using TikTok on personal devices. If you are using TikTok for campaign work, we recommend using a separate phone and account." Republican National Committee national press secretary Mandi Merritt said Saturday the RNC had longstanding guidance on TikTok. "The RNC has advised employees and stakeholders to not download the TikTok app on their personal devices," she said, citing "security concerns." The DNC had suggested to campaigns in a memo in December not to use TikTok, citing concerns about the app's "Chinese ties and potentially sending data back to the Chinese government."

Slashdot: Microsoft Worked With Google To Bring Progressive Web Apps To the Play Store

フィード by slashdotorg-feed
Microsoft has been collaborating with Google to ensure that their tools interoperate and can help developers get their Progressive Web Apps (PWAs) into the Play Store. From a report: "We're glad to announce a new collaboration between Microsoft and Google for the benefit of the web developer community," Microsoft's Judah Gabriel Himango announced. "Microsoft's PWABuilder and Google's Bubblewrap are now working together to help developers publish PWAs in the Google Play Store." As Himango explains, PWABuilder is a Microsoft tool that helps developers build PWAs from existing websites and publish them in app stores, while Bubblewrap is a Google tool and library used to generate and sign Google Play Store packages from PWAs. After months of collaboration, the two firms have made some interesting progress towards integrating the tools. Now, PWABuilder utilizes Bubblewrap "under the hood," as Himango puts it, allowing developers to package PWAs for the Play Store with PWABuilder that support the new web shortcuts standard. (On Windows 10, web shortcuts appear as jump lists.)

Slashdot: Apple Puts $400 Million Toward Affordable Housing

フィード by slashdotorg-feed
Apple announced Monday that it is allocating $400 million toward affordable housing and homeowner assistance programs in California this year, as part of the $2.5 billion commitment announced in November. From a report: The housing crisis has worsened in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic, forcing states and cities to pause spending on affordable housing projects. Big Tech's wealth has been blamed by some for driving up housing prices in the San Francisco Bay Area and making it unaffordable for teachers, firefighters and other workers who support the region. Apple, along with Facebook, Google and Microsoft, committed a collective $5 billion to support affordable housing initiatives, but it ran into the reality that money alone can't solve the problem without changes to zoning and financing restrictions.

Slashdot: Bottleneck for US Coronavirus Response: The Fax Machine

フィード by slashdotorg-feed
Public health officials in Houston are struggling to keep up with one of the nation's largest coronavirus outbreaks. They are desperate to trace cases and quarantine patients before they spread the virus to others. But first, they must negotiate with the office fax machine. From a report: The machine at the Harris County Public Health department in Houston recently became overwhelmed when one laboratory sent a large batch of test results, spraying hundreds of pages all over the floor. "Picture the image of hundreds of faxes coming through, and the machine just shooting out paper," said Dr. Umair Shah, executive director of the department. The county has so far recorded more than 40,000 coronavirus cases. Some doctors fax coronavirus tests to Dr. Shah's personal number, too. Those papers are put in an envelope marked "confidential" and walked to the epidemiology department. As hard as the United States works to control coronavirus, it keeps running into problems caused by its fragmented health system, a jumble of old and new technology, and data standards that don't meet epidemiologists' needs. Public health officials and private laboratories have managed to expand testing to more than half a million performed daily, but they do not have a system that can smoothly handle that avalanche of results.

Slashdot: The Data-Driven Tech Engine at the Heart of Hollywood's Content Factories

フィード by slashdotorg-feed
America's studios, creators and marketers are relying, more than ever, on digital platforms that allow them to gauge what audiences like-- and would like to see more of. From a report: They're not just looking for test screenings, either. They're looking to check in with potential audiences at every stage of production, from before a script is written until the moment their new TV show, film or music video debuts. Ever since George Lucas ushered in the era of endless sequels (and prequels), Hollywood executives have tried to capitalize on the success of the Last Big Thing by churning out more of it. But content budgets are increasing far faster than established franchises can keep up. Netflix is projected to spend more on new and acquired content in 2020 -- $17 billion -- than Apple spent on research and development in 2019. With stakes that high, minimizing risk when creating new content "at scale" means treating it like any other mass-market product. Executives, producers, writers, directors and marketers need to be able to consistently craft programs that are more likely than not to find their target audiences. Critical approval and industry awards -- even box-office blowouts -- while nice, aren't the endgame for most.

AIりんな、Microsoftから独立へ

タレコミ by headless
headless 曰く、

Microsoftは13日、XiaoIce関連企業を独立企業として分離することを発表した(プレスリリース: 日本語版中国語版Neowinの記事The Registerの記事)。

XiaoIce(中: 小冰 / Xiao Bing)は中国のBingチームがCortanaの妹という設定で開発したAIチャットボット。日本では「りんな」名義、インドネシアでも「Rinna」名義で活動している。既存のユーザーは事業分離後も、これまでと同等の水準と品質のサービスを継続して利用できるとのこと。

Microsoftでは事業分離の目的として、提供地域に合わせたイノベーションおよびビジネスの促進やカスタマイズされたサービスの提供などを挙げている。事業分離に関連する作業は数か月以内に完了する見込み。Microsoftは事業分離後も新会社への投資を続け、XiaoIce関連テクノロジを新会社にライセンスしていくとのことだ。
