节目介绍:Welcome to our 《microchips briefing》 show! Today, we’ve got some electrifying news to share with you. First up, the Biden administration is rolling out a new programme under the Chips Act to develop the US computer-chip workforce and tackle the labour shortage. This initiative will funnel $5 billion in federal funding to support workforce development projects, aiming to boost domestic semiconductor production. Next, Malaysia is reeling in Chinese data centres, thanks to its cheap land and low building costs. Companies like ByteDance and GDS are setting up shop, positioning Malaysia as a ‘non-aligned’ tech haven amidst escalating US-China tensions. However, experts warn that geopolitical risks could derail these ambitions. Finally, Nvidia is in hot water as the French antitrust regulator is expected to charge the chip giant over alleged anticompetitive practices. This marks a significant move in the broader inquiry into cloud computing, with potential major fines on the horizon. Please stay tuned for more detailed coverage!
