Private Sector Pushes Forward: Big Tech and AI Startups Thrive Amid Geopolitical Strife

USA News Group – The global economy is witnessing an arms race in artificial intelligence (AI), which is raising concerns for national security, and need for government regulation. In particular, tensions are rising between China and the United States, in where the US has cited “misuse of AI” by China, prompting calls for restrictions. Both governments are also using government subsidies to spur new advancements. However, China is not taking the threat of restriction on tech investments lightly, warning the US it’s ready to fight back, taking measures of its own. All the while, the private sector is continuing its momentum, with big tech giants leading the way in investing in AI startups, while other developers continue to make progress of their own with new developments coming recently from Avant Technologies Inc. (OTCQB: AVAI), Arm Holdings plc (NASDAQ: ARM), Pegasystems Inc. (NASDAQ: PEGA), Palantir Technologies Inc. (NYSE: PLTR), and Baidu, Inc. (NASDAQ: BIDU).

Renowned for its cutting-edge AI innovations, Avant Technologies Inc. (OTCQB: AVAI) has continued to develop and enhance its flagship product, Avant AI™. This advanced AI system, known for its machine and deep learning prowess, is versatile and applicable to numerous industries.

Recently, Avant made a strategic move by signing a Binding Letter of Intent (BLOI) with Flow Wave, LLC (FW), a leading company in immersible computer server technology based in Florida. This agreement enables Avant to purchase up to 50 state-of-the-art immersible computer servers from FW, in a deal worth $50 million.

Avant's revolutionary AI software platform is poised to transform the landscape of data center management,” said William Hisey, CEO of Avant. “By integrating proprietary machine learning algorithms with open-source innovations into these servers, Avant is developing a highly intelligent system designed to optimize resource allocation, enhance performance, and drive unprecedented levels of efficiency and automation. This marks the beginning of a new era for Avant Technologies, positioning us at the forefront of the supercomputer-driven data center industry and setting new standards for managing and storing AI applications.”

Designed for intensive AI and machine learning tasks, Flow Wave Immersible AI Supercomputer Servers offer robust processing power for faster and more efficient data analysis. Their innovative cooling technology is energy-efficient, saving costs and minimizing environmental impact. Additionally, these compact servers are easy to install, making them ideal for data centers with limited space, and their durable design ensures longevity and reduced maintenance needs.

To address the challenges of the digital era, Avant plans to acquire up to 50 of these high-performance servers. Their advanced cooling capabilities enhance performance while conserving energy, reflecting Avant’s commitment to delivering superior AI infrastructure and optimizing efficiency. Further details about the transaction will be provided once the final agreement is confirmed.

After a recent record-setting rally, the CEO of Arm Holdings plc (NASDAQ: ARM) says the AI Boom is just beginning. The chip designer is on pace to launch new AI chips in 2025, according to a report from Nikkei Asia in May. As per the report, Arm will set up an AI chip division and aim to build a prototype by spring 2025. The move is part of SoftBank Group (which owns a 90% stake in Arm) CEO Masayoshi Son's 10 trillion yen ($64 billion) push to transform Arm into a sprawling AI powerhouse.

Earlier this June, Reuters reported that Arm expects 100 billion Arm devices will be ready for AI by the end of 2025, according Rene Haas, CEO of Arm at the Computex forum in Taipei. In fact, Haas stated he and his company aim to gain more than 50% of the Windows PC market. To date, Microsoft has pledged to support its alternative technology to Advanced Micro Devices and Intel's x86 technology. To achieve this, the company is developing a comprehensive suite of software developer tools designed to facilitate the creation of programs that run on Arm-based chips.

"Arm's market share in Windows - I think, truly, in the next five years, it could be better than 50%," said Haas in an interview with Reuters. "They've (Microsoft) gone way beyond anything they had (in developer tools) and they really picked it up in the last couple of years. They are very, very much committed from a software standpoint."
