Japan will create a scheme to subsidise the construction of domestic chip factories
Under the scheme, Japanese companies will be eligible for the subsidies on the condition that they ramp up chip production in times of short supply.
The nation’s Prime Minister Fumio Kishida has pledged economic security, including the domestic output of semiconductors.
The government is likely to invest in a new chip plant to produce semiconductors for automobiles, camera image sensors and other products.
The production at the silicone chip factories are likely to start operations by 2024.
It comes as a global chip shortage hits a variety of sectors, plagued by the pandemic and supply chain bottle-necks.
Iran cuts internet access over “hijab violation”
Iranian authorities say they will restrict internet access in the country until calm is restored to the streets
Protests over the death of a young woman in the custody of the morality police continue to rock the Islamic Republic.
Thousands of Iranians have taken to the streets in protest since the death last week of 22-year-old Mahsa Amini, who was apprehended in Tehran and taken to a “re-education center,” apparently for not wearing her hijab properly.
Amini’s death has sparked outrage among Iranian women, who have long been subject to repressive rules mandating their dress and behavior.
In recent years, the government has stepped up its enforcement of these rules, with morality police attacking women for offenses such as wearing loose headscarves or talking to men in public.
The death of Amini, who was reportedly beaten in custody, has galvanized young Iranians who are fed up with the repression they have faced for their entire lives.
In addition to taking to the streets, they are using social media to spread the word about the protests and to call for an end to the government’s oppressive policies.
It remains to be seen whether the current wave of protests will lead to lasting change in Iran. But one thing is clear: the country’s young people are no longer willing to tolerate the status quo.
Video game actors are worried that they’ll replaced by AI
A new generation of video game characters are being created, and they look eerily lifelike.
Powered by artificial intelligence (AI), these digital avatars can learn and adapt, making them more realistic than ever before.
As a result, some video game actors are worried that they may soon be replaced by AI technologies.
While it is true that AI characters can be created relatively cheaply, they still require a lot of work to create and animate.
In addition, they lack the emotional range and subtlety of human actors. As a result, it is unlikely that AI will completely take over the role of video game actors anytime soon.
However, it is possible that AI could be used to augment or supplement human performances in the future.
For example, an AI character could be used to create a basic motion-capture performance that could then be refined by a human actor.
Whether or not AI technologies will have a role in the future of video games remains to be seen.
However, one thing is certain: the gaming industry is changing rapidly, and all those involved will need to adapt to stay ahead of the curve.
However, it’s important to remember that AI is still in its early stages of development, and it’s not clear how far it will ultimately be able to advance.
For now, video game actors still have a valuable role to play in the industry.
Their experience and performance brings a human element to video games that simply can’t be replicated by AI.
As the technology continues to evolve, it will be interesting to see how it affects the role of video game actors. But for now, they can rest assured that their jobs are safe.
