Iran borders are on red alert and clear orders have been given to shot down anything that erupts Iran airspace. State news agency IRNA quoted the Guard’s news website, Sepah News, as saying that the Islamic country’s military force targeted the RQ-4 Global Hawk drone when it entered Iran’s airspace “near the Kouhmobarak district in the south.”

General Hossein Salami, the commander of Iran’s Revolutionary Guard, said the incident sent “a clear message” to the US, adding that  Iran does “not have any intention for war with any country, but we are ready for war.”

Responding swiftly to the Iranian claim, the US military said it had not violated Iranian airspace on Wednesday, saying that the drone was flying in international airspace some 34 kilometers (21 miles) from Iran over the Strait of Hormuz.

“Iranian reports that the aircraft was over Iran are false,” the US military’s Central Command said in a statement. They also called the incident “an unprovoked attack on a US surveillance asset in international airspace.”

US-China Tech war is all about?

All you need to know what’s happening in the tech industry explicitly tech war between the US & China. The future of Huawei, Samsung and Apple will be discussed. Almost 16 days ago Trump signed an executive order and put Huawei and other 60 affiliated companies in the black list and restrict all US companies who have trade relations with Chinese companies will have to seek permission before trading with any Chinese company present in the list. The reason of this executive order is the US considers them a National Security threat for themselves.

Whats its all about tech war?

The Trump arrows towards Huawei Tech, one of China’s tech champions, by signing an executive order that national security is not compromised in US telecoms infrastructure, while simultaneously reining back China’s dominance in next-generation 5G wireless networks.

Discussion among Huawei and US government is underway to make some way out of the current crises but for instances, no one has a clue where the crazy bull gets hooked.

Designed by Apple in California. Assembled in China. This familiar line on the back of iPhones has summed up the world order for the past two decades: American innovation married with low-cost Chinese manufacturing to deliver cheap, quality products for the world.

Huawei is a Chinese smartphone country that earns 50% of the revenue from Chinese users and half of the remaining from the rest of the world. Huawei smartphone manufacturing plants are in China but it buys hardware parts and some software from US companies. Huawei with the intention to become a global leader in the smartphone industry has recently crossed Apple in sales and chase Samsung.

Can you imagine a Smartphone without Google Play Store, YouTube, Gmail, Facebook, and What’s App? Obviously, you are not Chinese at all who are surviving without all these apps and using their own which may be excellent with other perspectives.

Keeping this Executive order in view Google realized about current Huawei users and their support services order 90 days’ relief to Huawei company. So in 90 days Huawei either has to bring in their own apps or would ask global users to be like Chinese.

Moving forward Apple CEO Tim Cook must sound some loud ringing bells as he has always been pro Chinese when it comes to Chinese manufacturing skills set. He confessed a couple of times in his interview that he is impressed with the skill set and economical rates of Chinese labor. He said you get everything under one roof and cheap rates which saves time. So he must be under extreme stress about the Apple future.

However, the most elated and beneficiary person, for now, is Samsung CEO as he is observing tech giants limits access for users and he is expecting that traffic towards Samsung.

The major reason behind this is something most of the people may not perceive and maybe this tech war is for a shorter period of time. Tech users are soon going to have better technology than 4G and the US does not want China to take lead in launching 5G in the world before the US does. Its all about 5G technology bone that is stuck in the neck.

So an overview of the tech war Is, it’s not a one-sided match in which the US restricts China smartphone company and it won’t be affected, Trump administration even wants Apple to get back there manufacturing in the US but Tim Cook does not agree. Well, they have a bilateral trade relation and if trade among China and the US gets stuck anywhere in between it will open a space for Samsung and new payers to jump in. So all eyes on 90 days and we will see where and how negotiations get settle.

Trump ordered to double tariffs is punitive Turkey, Lira plunges 15% against Dollar

President Trump said Friday that he told his administration to double steel and aluminum tariffs against Turkey, reflecting the rapidly deteriorating state of relations between the two countries.

The announcement would mark a major policy shift, but it was made in a Twitter post with little context. Trump remarked that Turkey’s currency, the lira, was weakening against the U.S. dollar, a phenomenon that had made existing tariffs less effective.

Turkish Lira plunges 15% against dollar as Trump ordered to double tariffs on steel and aluminium exports Turkey, both are the NATO members countries

Doubling the tariffs to 20 percent for aluminum and 50 percent for steel would magnify the impact of the trade restrictions.

Both countries are members of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, which could end up pulling other nations into the diplomatic skirmish. And the U.S. Air Force has used Incirlik Air Base in southern Turkey for years, even though a number of people in Turkey have pressed to have the U.S. forces expelled.

The Treasury Department slapped sanctions on two Turkish officials last week because the country refused to release American pastor Andrew Brunson, who faces charges in Turkey that include attempting to overthrow the government and espionage.

Google declined project with US Govt amid employees revolt

What exactly is Project Maven

The Department of Defense of the United States gets a lot of data every year, including millions of hours of video almost impossible to process by its human workers. That is why last summer they announced the start-up of Project Maven, a project to use artificial intelligence and machine learning to process all the data they obtain.

Project Maven focuses on computer vision, an aspect of machine learning and deep learning with which they want to be able to extract objects of interest automatically from still or moving images. This means that an artificial intelligence will analyze the videos and photos , and that it will automatically detect any element that has been trained to qualify as relevant

Google employees do not want their company to collaborate with the United States Pentagon by perfecting the artificial intelligence of their systems. In an open letter published in full by media such as the New York Times , about 3,100 employees sign up to directly contact Sundar Pichai asking him to stop working on Project Maven.

It is a pentagon program in which Google is one of the collaborating companies, and which seeks to use articial intelligence to interpret video images. This, much as Google is trying to iron out the issue, has the potential to help improve the targeting of drone attacks and thus improve their effectiveness.

“We believe that Google should not be in the business of war,” they say at the beginning of the open letter. “Therefore, we ask that the Maven Project be canceled and that Google write, publish and apply a clear policy that establishes that neither Google nor its contractors will ever build a technology of war.”
