Japan is rushing to rebuild its once world-leading semiconductor infrastructure and catch up on the development of AI technology. The graphics processing units (GPUs) made by U.S.-based Nvidia dominate the market for AI. "Demand is very high, but I promised the prime minister we will do our very, very best to prioritise Japan's requirements for GPUs," Huang told reporters at Prime Minister Fumio Kishida's official residence in Tokyo. "The semiconductor industry that Japan is now starting to grow and foster will be able to produce GPUs," Huang said. "Countries like Japan are realising that you need to own your own data, build your own AI factories and produce your own AI intelligence," he added.

Meta's chief AI scientist Yann LeCun is sceptical that AI will reach human-level intelligence anytime soon. The AI godfather previously said that AI hasn't been able to fully capture the human experience yet. AdvertisementMeta's chief AI scientist has reiterated his skepticism about AI reaching advanced or human-level intelligence in the near future, contrasting the viewpoints of some more bullish tech leaders. LeCun explained that AI will likely reach "cat-level" or "dog-level" intelligence years before it achieves human-level intelligence. This is largely because AI is being trained on language models and text that are not sufficient to create advanced AI.

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit reversed the jury's 2021 verdict that Intel infringed one VLSI patent, and sent the case back to Texas for a new trial to determine how much Intel owes for infringing a second VLSI patent. A Waco, Texas jury awarded VLSI $2.18 billion in the first trial from the dispute. The jury found that technology in Intel microprocessors infringed patents that VLSI had acquired from Dutch chipmaker NXP Semiconductors (NXPI.O). Intel defeated VLSI's bid for more than $3 billion in damages in another Waco jury trial later in 2021. A separate jury in Austin, Texas said that VLSI was entitled to nearly $949 million from Intel in a third patent case last year.

Piper Sandler reiterated its buy-equivalent rating on Nvidia's stock and $620 per-share price target, which implies nearly 33% upside from its Friday close. After Nvidia's more-than-200% stock-price gain this year, investors are wondering what's "new" about Nvidia, Jim Cramer said Monday. The answer to that question is software, Jim said, which could eventually help offset the historically boom-and-bust nature of semiconductor sales. Over time, though, Piper Sandler believes software can become a "significant portion" of Nvidia's total revenue. Despite our alignment with Piper Sandler on Nvidia's long-term software opportunity, Jim on Monday cautioned that its stock could be due for a breather.

Taiwan Economy Minister Wang Mei-hua speaks during an interview with Reuters in Taipei, Taiwan, September 30, 2021. REUTERS/Ann Wang/File Photo Acquire Licensing RightsTAIPEI, Dec 4 (Reuters) - U.S. officials plan to visit Taiwan to explain to companies details of new curbs, primarily aimed at China, on advanced chip exports, the island's economy minister said on Monday. Taiwan Economy Minister Wang Mei-hua said some details of the extremely long new U.S. rules needed explanation. Given the concentration of chip making in Taiwan it was "advantageous" for Taiwanese companies to hear the details of the new controls from the U.S. officials, Wang said. Taiwan's official Central News Agency said the U.S. officials, who it did not name, would visit Taiwan next month and hold events in the chip hubs of Hsinchu and Tainan.

Over the last 10 years of market turbulence, there haven't been very many stocks that have seen a more than 1,000% compound return. Fewer still of these "tenbaggers," companies that have multiplied in value 10 times, have sizeable upside expectations ahead. The average analyst still sees potential upside of 40%. Early last month, Jefferies began research coverage of Celsius with a buy rating, citing several growth opportunities that lie ahead. With a 10-year compound total return of nearly 13,000%, chipmaker Nvidia was also at the top of the list.

Nov 30 (Reuters) - Amkor Technology (AMKR.O) said Thursday it will spend $2 billion to build a new advanced semiconductor packaging and test facility in Arizona that will package and test chips for Apple (AAPL.O) produced at a nearby Taiwanese chipmaker TSMC (2330.TW) facility. Amkor said the facility will be the largest U.S. outsourced advanced packaging facility. Earlier this month, the Commerce Department disclosed details of its plans to spend $3 billion for advanced packaging. Advanced packaging is a high-tech method of placing multiple chips with a variety of functions in a densely interconnected “package." Commerce Secretary Gina Raimondo has made advanced packaging a priority and said earlier this year "the U.S. will develop multiple high-volume advanced packaging facilities, and become a global leader in packaging technologies."

Nvidia CEO Jensen Huang offered a glimpse into his unusual management style, including having "50 direct reports," in an interview with CNBC's Andrew Ross Sorkin on Wednesday. Huang says that he has so many direct reports — most executives only have 10 or so — because it keeps Nvidia from developing unnecessary layers of management. "The more direct reports a CEO has, the less layers are in the company. "The people that report to the CEO should require the least amount of pampering and so I don't think they need life advice. I don't think they need career guidance," Huang said.

The company on Tuesday estimated adjusted operating expenses of about $990 million in the quarter ending Nov. 30, higher that its prior expectation of $900 million, plus or minus $15 million. The higher expenses are driven by the timing of R&D costs as well as asset sales, CEO Sanjay Mehrotra said at the UBS Global Technology Conference on Tuesday. Micron said it now expects revenue to approach $4.7 billion, compared with its previous estimate of $4.4 billion, plus or minus $200 million. It previously forecast loss of $1.07 per share, plus or minus 7 cents.

Photo: Jeff Chiu/Associated PressBroadcom Chief Executive Hock Tan shelled out $40,000 to sit at Xi Jinping ’s table for the Chinese leader’s recent dinner in San Francisco with the heads of American businesses. Tan had a lot more at stake—a $69 billion deal he was waiting on China to approve. For months, Chinese regulators wouldn’t clear the U.S. chipmaker’s bid to buy enterprise software developer VMware, leading Broadcom to put off its date for completion of the deal—first announced in May 2022—three times. Intel’s planned acquisition of Israeli firm Tower Semiconductor , for more than $5 billion, was scuttled in August after Chinese regulators failed to approve it.
