Intel

said this week that it had formed a partnership with

Amazon.com’s

cloud computing division to provide the hardware for artificial intelligence training from one of the companies Intel has acquired.

The cards running the hardware are designed by Habana, an Israeli company focused on AI technologies that Intel (ticker: INTC) acquired roughly a year ago for $2 billion. The announcement, made at an Amazon Web Services event, marks a significant moment for Intel, which has yet to field a product capable of competing directly with the graphics processing unit-powered devices for AI learning made by rival

Nvidia

(NVDA).

Intel Is Cheap for a Reason

(Award-winning tech columnist Jon Markman publishes of Strategic Advantage, a popular daily newsletter about the digital transformation of business, entertainment and society — and how to invest in it. Click here for a free two-week trial.)

Semiconductor giant Intel ((INTC) -Get Report) is under siege from outsourcing, so its execs are turning to Washington for help. If the gambit works, investors should sell Intel shares into strength.

Intel chief Bob Swan published an open letter Monday to President-elect Biden urging a big investment in domestic chip manufacturing. The idea jibes with Biden’s American-made push.

There’s a catch, though: Making more chips in the United States will not help Intel shareholders.

According to a report from the Semiconductor Industry Assn., US firms currently account for 48% of worldwide sales. From chip designs and manufacturing equipment to the complex software used to refine routing instructions, companies headquartered here are the

Business Intel: Downshift pivots to new model, separating bikes from cafe | Business Local

Downshift Bikes & Brews, a bike shop and cafe in downtown Roanoke, is changing its business model.

Owner Stephen Ambruzs said Downshift will continue to service bicycles, but not sell them, at a new space at 210 Fourth St. S.W. When safer to do so, it will resume hosting group rides and events. The cafe and coffee shop are closed for now, but some favorite menu items will eventually be available through a partnership with Golden Cactus Brewing.

The changes are the result of several factors, Ambruz said. The community-building aspect of the business provided by the coffee shop and group rides has been disrupted by the COVID-19 pandemic. There’s an extremely limited supply of bikes, parts and accessories given this year’s boom in cycling. He’s also juggling becoming a father.

“We needed to change what we were doing in order to both be sort of current with how

National security veterans, intel officials react to Trump ‘bloodlust’

  • President Donald Trump is still refusing to concede the election after handily losing to President-elect Joe Biden, and the Trump administration is doing everything in his power to stymie Biden’s transition team.
  • But national security veterans and former intelligence officials told Insider that, in many ways, the biggest risk to the US isn’t a rocky transition, but what the president himself might do in the 65 days between now and when he leaves office.
  • Since Trump lost the election, nearly a dozen senior government officials have been fired, forced to resign, or resigned in protest, including the defense secretary, and there may still be more shoes to drop.
  • “Trump seems to wake up every day with a kind of anxiety or hatred,” Bob Deitz, the former NSA general counsel, told Insider. “He didn’t get reelected, so he’s in vengeance mode. His bloodlust is rising up.”
  • “In terms of damage that

Business Intel: Innovation Mill looks to assist high-growth businesses | Business Local

The Advancement Foundation is seeking applicants for its Innovation Mill program to assist new or early stage businesses with high growth potential.

Simone Knowles, director of innovation and community expansion for the Innovation Mill, said the program can serve businesses in various sectors, from technology to manufacturing to food and beverage.

For the second year in a row, the Innovation Mill received funding from GO Virginia, a statewide economic development initiative with the goal of creating high-wage jobs. It provides support for around 25 businesses, Knowles said.

While The Gauntlet, another Advancement Foundation initiative, is a business development program that helps budding entrepreneurs determine if their idea is viable, Knowles said, the Innovation Mill is geared toward a slightly more established business.

“We’re looking for someone that has some knowledge about where their business is going and how they plan to scale,” she said.

These businesses might already have a

AMD’s $35 Billion Proposal to Xilinx Is Less About NVIDIA, More About Taking On Intel

Rumors recently surfaced that AMD (NASDAQ:AMD) was in advanced talks to acquire peer Xilinx (NASDAQ:XLNX). Those rumors have now been confirmed with AMD’s announcement it has offered Xilinx shareholders $35 billion in an all-stock deal.

On the surface, this move may look like little more than a sideshow given rival NVIDIA‘s (NASDAQ:NVDA) $40 billion offer to take over SoftBank subsidiary ARM Holdings. However, Xilinx is a different animal entirely, one that will help AMD in its attempts to usurp semiconductor industry titan Intel (NASDAQ:INTC).

A windfall and a bet on further growth

First, AMD is fronting no cash here. Instead, it is using its skyrocketing stock price as a currency — shares are up over 70% this year, valuing the company at over $92 billion in market cap as of this writing. For every one share Xilinx shareholders own, they will receive 1.7234
