Today’s News

The automotive industry has been caught in between the crosshairs of the semiconductor industry and the rise of artificial intelligence (A.I.) due to the recent China restrictions in raw material and the progressive nature as well as potential application options presented by A.I.

Coincidently, both A.I. and semiconductors are directly related to one another as the two would cease to exist without the other.

Restrictions aside, the two largest economies of the world, China and U.S. are making substantial advancements in the A.I. sector while they are pitted to go head-to-head in terms of competition.

The U.S. is still on the lookout for alternative measures to cope with their rising demands of chip productions while China closes its doors to the world with the imposed restrictions. Neither nation is budging to give the competition the slightest advantage. Meanwhile, the automotive sector presses on in terms of progression with talks on A.I. resuming its discussions on automated A.I. powered taxi, also known as robotaxi.
