12:30 pm
all member states support it, and some persuasion is required. so surprising, glanced into the very heart of power. supposed to win the game. diplomatic poker treat power plays and alliances behind the scenes of the sun. it starts august, 5th on d, w. the the pay 50 percent leave in profit, south korean and chronic dry. and samsung, s q 2 has been an exceptional one, and it's not because of the company, global leadership and smartphones. also coming up, artificial intelligence is the core driving force for a new round of industrial transformation. we'll get the latest on the growing rivalry between the united states and china on a tight. and we'll take it
12:31 pm
a pull to go, which has become a european hub for yes, bicycle production. i'm chris cockburn, bowling welcome to the program. everyone is looking for tips. these days and strong chip sales have prompted south korean tech giant samsung to forecast a more than 50 percent jump and 2nd quarterly profit. another factor is the resumption of operations that one of the most important factories in the united states. the company has also benefited from increasing demand for appliances and tv, as more people work from home. sometimes overall turnover is equivalent to a 5th of south korea, se, gross domestic product. let's take a look at the story with santa st. or senior market analyst at hartgraves land down . good. good to have you on the program to santa this jump in profit. how's the
12:32 pm
pricing is it to you? well, it certainly did take the market with surprise to some extent. of course we all have known about this chip shortage for some time. samsung was that that was a severe, a balance between supply and demand some back, but 2nd quarter profits are expected to rise by 53 percent operating profit, full cost of $11000000000.00 for 3 months. now they're out expectations. maverick given the situation, the 3rd quarter could come in even higher. but it's interesting because some, some shadow price actually fell slightly because, although it's making money because it's able to push up the price of the kit that it sells. so dram checks, for example, use the pcs,
12:33 pm
the price store to double figured in april, marking the fastest increase in 4 years. and also the price of the flash memory check, rebounded in april as well to despite the chip shortage means that she, that we're supplying, shoot for the other products that samsung sounds cool will be on actually devices. and that is we'll have to drag as a chef lice down, because all of this uncertainty affecting the whole range of its products, so that samsung electronics, the world's biggest smartphone maker. but experts say the key driver for earnings will be semi conductor z. agree. well it's certainly because it's also having real supply issues with those small phones that itself, that partly to do with a drop in demand in india, but also problems. and it needs the factors as well which manufacture of the
12:34 pm
handset due to cov, is issues. and so, as a result, the numbers come into the market, smartphones, how fallen, and so certainly it does appear as though it is going to be the semiconductor chip area of the business that is going to lay the ground for a higher profits in court. has to come and it is of cool having a real knock on effect these higher prices for so many different sections. i mean, the shortage, for example, to pick carmakers, particularly hard with major money, most manufacturers around the world's being for the whole production at various times. this situation doesn't likely to ease anytime soon because the volumes of chips being created, sippy can't keep up with the demand, right. susanna street or senior market analyst at harvard is land bound. thank you for his off now this week, shanghai is that the black hole. so a leading international conference on artificial intelligence that will bring together the world's most renown scholars and entrepreneurs in the field by means
12:35 pm
of both physical venues and virtual channels. from driverless cars. the robots, the data processing and household appliances, competition is fierce to bruce, the most innovative products, and who's winning the race. well, in terms of investments, the u. s. is ahead with are in the spending of over 23000000000 dollars last year. chinese companies spend almost $10000000000.00 while the you invested just to build and china wants to dominate a central wide scale national surveillance schemes, as well as its plans to boost innovation will be spending up to one $150000000000.00 by the end of the decade to become a global leader in artificial intelligence. all right, for more in the spring in the called the founder and ceo of a solutions provider, merante labs and dw correspondence source on hand and ty paid. so let me start with
12:36 pm
you. this meeting brings together a whole range of people, business leaders, internet. hi coons, politicians. they'll even be china top. if it demi ologist, what is the main focus of this event? well the men highlight this year is the upgraded cloud dream and services including session and expression that will be taken to taking place online. as you mentioned, there will be world premier cutting edge technologies like more tight talented robots or a i interface is used from bar attending brand surgery to retail stores. and you talked about like there will be so many important people from different field. i'm show up there because it's a very good chance to china to show emission and world leading role in frontier technology. nicole over to you where has artificial intelligence made the biggest
12:37 pm
advances in the last year. i would say that, but we've seen is that we have had major advantage in natural language processing where we're seeing basically the number of paramita models are being trained as increase exponentially, almost be saw that the 3 that came out of the u. s. at the beginning of the year with a 175000000000 param meters now at chinese model. that's kind of 10, ex, this. and the big question for europe is, where is the european model? and how can we build such a big model as well? exactly, i get to that in a 2nd, but what does this tell us for now about the race for global leadership between the united states and china? this tells us from my perspective that the race has begun on building the biggest models possible and creating competitive advantages in 2 areas, which is one compute power. and you've touched on this earlier with the processing
12:38 pm
power to power. and the 2nd one is in data sets and powerful big, meaningful data. so these are the areas where you can build competitive advantages . ok. so back to you and type a, china's biggest cyber security firm as worn about the risks that come with the development of the digital economy. what does that tell us about the state of the technology in general and in china? where there has been a series of crack down and reviews on on chinese app with the 100000000 users with security rex and china. the government came up with measures of the best ship whenever there is, there is the need and from cases like jack moore and is falling dream to reform the financial system through technology. we know these changes can come from political or diplomatic influences. and the chinese government tactics been to have 2 purposes. one is to control corporate leaders on the one hand in
12:39 pm
a 2nd to ensure security, to provision and law enforcement in all aspects. nicole, let me come back to you. you mentioned that europe needs to find it's nice in all of that. where do you think it is? i think there are 2 things that europe has that can be a very strong competitive advantage. we have the highest number of researchers per capita. still a very high in normative power compared to the we have more per capita actually at the u. s. and china combined, that's a very strong assets. the 2nd one is also very interesting be should be industrial data sets. the main challenges, however, are that they're quite signed mode and distributed, so we need to find a very good strategy to build these stage rooms and data access in a very centralized manner. so we can leverage it for high scalable a. i solutions and a model called the founder and ceo of merante labs and d, w,
12:40 pm
corresponded, so tongue and in type a thanks to both of you. now, a quick look at some of the other business stories making headlines around the world. the pentagon describing a $10000000000.00 cloud computing contract and looking for a new provider. microsoft had won the massive deal, but that was cancelled. that was challenged when amazon called it a quote, political decision. dependent on says it will consider other firms as well. therapy commission is expecting growth and the arizona arrives to almost 5 percent this year. growth has been boosted by the reopening of economies in the 2nd quarter, but experts war new virus variance could prove problematic. later in the year, b, m w is coming back strong after the tend to make the german automaker has raised output by more than 40 percent in the 2nd quarter. that's over the same quarter last year when proven 1900 shut down, much of the economy says
12:41 pm
a current shortage and semiconductors is only having a minimal effect. a german consumer organization has lost a class action lawsuit against dialer over the diesel gate emission scandal. the move comes less than year after the car. jain paid a $1500000000.00 fine in the united states of the claims install software. 250000 vehicles in order to cheat in pollution tests, believe or not. portugal has become the use biggest producer of bicycles and with the blocks only factory for carbon bike frames. the country is being profiled as a quality location. it's the building block of cycling, most premium bikes, carbon fiber. now the light weight and resilient material is undergoing a boom in the north of portugal. as many as $50000.00 bike frames are set to be produced here each year. this is something that
12:42 pm
the europe needs. there isn't any factory the which will do carbon fiber by frames in europe capacity. so the whole capacity is coming from asia. portugal spike industry is rolling right out of the economic crisis in part due to cov, it, many people are still avoiding public transit. imports the bike parts from china were also interrupted. financial subsidies and low wages are also driving the boom and c m. schools. so we believe that 8500 people are already working in the bike industry here. it supports another 20 to 30000 people indirectly. that numbers on the rise and because the sector is growing in portugal, in portugal counts only 2 percent of your population, yet it produces almost a quarter of spikes. it's almost a bit i run it that the bike business is doing so well. here in lisbon or porto, you won't find all that many cyclists on the cobblestone streets. it's very hard
12:43 pm
to find a flat street. so it's very haley you, you really need a better read to go up hill, and we also don't have any biking lanes or we have them, but only at the ocean side. the road ahead may be bumpy, but for bike manufacturers in portugal, there's a clear destination that's a show for now. thanks for watching every se successfully. ah . the fight against the corona virus pandemic. how has the rate of infection and in developing? what does the latest research information and contact the corona virus? because the 19 special next on dw
12:44 pm
hello guys. this is a 77 percent. the platform is used to share ideas. you know, on this panel, we're not afraid to ask. and young people clearly have the solution, the future 77 percent. now, every weekend on the w, the, in the finally back in the middle of the action, football fans from across europe are coming together. the beer is flowing and all of it is happening without face marks as if nothing ever happened. we are worried about the delta variance. variance means we to stay cautious. the delta
12:45 pm
variant is coming. it spreads faster than previous variance. no volume. so is the party over? should europe be back on a crisis floating? is the vaccine rolled out? not fast enough. what's the verdict for europe? is the glass half empty, or half full? hello and welcome to d w cove at 1900 special. i'm daniel winter in berlin, delta delta plus even a gamma, a veritable alphabet soup of corona virus variance. let's take a closer look at delta, which originated in india. it spreads faster than the original in europe, it's becoming the predominant strain. delta accounts for 97 percent of all sequence to positive test samples in the u. k. and this blamed for sending infections rising once again. it's also dominant in portugal and russia elsewhere. the variance is
12:46 pm
spreading quickly in austria, where it represents one of every 2 cases. and it's getting a foothold in the czech republic, 2 in germany. recent data shows, delta is around 37 percent of new infections, but the countries infectious disease center, which is the estimated it was already higher, perhaps 50 percent. some predicts the delta variant could account for 90 percent of all new cases by the end of august. but may sound bad, but remember there is no evidence of diseases any more dangerous scientific evidence shows the spread of delta is cause for caution, but not for panic. getting the 1st show fact feed against target 19 is likely to come as a big relief to those lucky enough to have one tell you what happens when you very come along. well, somebody has some good news on this front. against the delta vary and biotech was found to be 88 percent effective it preventing symptomatic disease. that's
12:47 pm
according to a study by public health, england. astrazeneca was 60 percent effective after the delta plus fair and not enough day through the vailable to know how to interact with immunizations. scientists in india, and worldwide, and looking into it. research just say it's unlikely it'll out folks the current job as well as the vaccines effectiveness against the variance. another big question is how long was shot to protect us for? according to a nature paper, it could be a good while. that's for m r and a job like biotech madana to figure of the immune response found in some bio tech vaccinated people was fed by research has to be a strong indication that protection could last for years. that's against 19 as it looks at the moment. if the virus changes out of recognition, it might be a different ball game, but that may or may not happen in the future. so now the vaccines available are the
12:48 pm
best way after the panoramic. and joining us now is dr. and they us back, tyler, a religious don't the austrian academy of sciences. so alpha, beta gamma, epsilon, delta, delta plus even now, how worried do we need to be about all these variance? i don't know where to where it is the right where i would say we have to be alert because we know that the buyer keeps changing. this is something we have been observing since the beginning of the demick. and we do know that there are certain variance which has become more pictures, sometimes also acquiring in unit k properties. so evading the new response a bit better. and these are all properties that one has to factor in when we tried to count the virus by, for example, particular measurements, such as social distance thing or explanation. and why is it that we're now suddenly
12:49 pm
hearing about so many variance showing up? are they really just coming to light just now where we just started to understand the more what, what's the case that i think it's a very interesting question that science itself and assigned to i think don't fully understand yet. what is clear is that many of the very in the actually take quite some time until the 3rd face. but just to give you one example, delta has been 1st sequence in september 2020. so it took more than half a year for this buyer to eventually hit the u. k. and eventually now the rest of continental europe and the world. and so this is one thing, it takes time for this variance. at the same time, we have evidence that we see over the last month that evolution might be accelerating, but it's somehow part of to might be faster in acquiring mutations. and these are all process that the scientists try to understand better. ok, and looking at what the possible in the future could be dealing with all of these
12:50 pm
various the u. k. says that the aiming for total unlocking on june 19th, but delta case numbers are still very high. so is this the right thing to do in your opinion? do you just have to accept that there is going to be no good time to unlock and just great teaching and get through it? i mean to cite some well known scientists in the u. k. this is going to be a big experiment, and it's always, i think, difficult or impossible to, to know upfront what's gonna happen. but i think chances are that this will lead to a big spike and increase of infection. and the question is, how much will the effects hospitalisation rate and the cases of clinical disease? and we do know that in general, the current vaccine, including astrazeneca is used to live in the u. k. but also biotech, for example, had a very high protection against disease. and this is something i think that one has
12:51 pm
to be in. there are quite a big share of the population, including the younger ones that have been not text unaided. what did this experiment turns out to be the right way? right. well, i just like to pick up on the actually, you know, israeli research has just recently said that the by on tech job is less effective against the delta very than previously thought. which is what i guess you were referring to the what does this mean for the fight against covert 19 they would have to distinguish between the different effects of, of being vaccinated on the one hand vaccine is there to protect yourself. so it's kind of an existing action, and this is still giving you a very high protection against the delta vary. and the other point, if you would like to see, to prevent the spread of the virus from being infected in the 1st place. and then to admitting the virus to other person. and there seems to be some data coming from the thread that maybe those people have been beckoning with biasing quite some time
12:52 pm
ago. right. and this is also important to factor in time that those people might still get infected, although they don't succumb to the disease or develop severe disease. so i think overall, there are still good news that the vaccine are working against delta. not it could be that they're not as effective anymore in refusing to spread. so i'm all, we kind of wasting our time with too much alarm ism around the variance. now i'm not sure. i think we shouldn't be surprised anymore. off the one and a half years of the pen then is that there will be new variance coming around and would have delta epsilon lumber. the greek alphabet had 24 letters. so let's see when we reached omega. but i think these are the things that we can expect. the big question with all of these new arriving variances, do they have to change properties of the more picture to the lead to more disease? are they potentially escaping the immune response be just from natural infection or
12:53 pm
from vaccination? and this is something i guess it has to be assessed for each and every various questions for the future. for us was that dr. address back tyler of the austrian academy of sciences. thank you very much for joining us. thank you for having and it's not just us who asked the questions. now it's your turn. it's the part of the program where we put one of your questions to our science correspondent derek williams. oh, does that seem black the virus or simply keep it from closing severe disease? oh, okay. i've talked about this certain times in the past, but maybe it's time for an update on, on what we know now. as you rightly point out mark initial trials carried out with vaccines that have been approved for you so far. they were set up to look at the vaccine safety and how well the vaccines were able to block the development of
12:54 pm
symptomatic disease in recipients, in particular, severe disease and, and they're really, really good at that though they're not perfect. what are called breakthrough cases do occur. those are people who are fully vaccinated, that somehow subsequently test positive for the virus. but when you look at the numbers, break through infections are few and far between. and most of the people that happens to get a symptomatic or mild cases of cobra. 19 breakthrough cases that end up in the hospital or even if you are and far between or if you can say that. and so a big win on the primary goal of stopping bad disease, but it's taking time to gather data on a major secondary goal, which is stopping by risk transmission. do vaccines also provide at least some
12:55 pm
degree of what's called sterilizing immunity? that's when, if you're exposed to a pathogen after getting your shots, your immune system is so primed to wipe it out, that the pathogen basically has no chance to gain even a temporary foothold. and since it can't rep and you, you can't give it to someone else, evidence is now piling up that if you're vaccinated, then your risk of catching over 19 in a measurable way is a lot lower. so the logical assumption is that the chances you might subsequently pass it along are also a lot lower than they would be for someone who is unvaccinated, but a small chance isn't a 0 chance. the fact page at johns hopkins university expresses our current level of knowledge very well. i think it says back scenes are likely to reduce the
12:56 pm
risk of virus transmission, but probably not completely for everyone. me and that's all for this edition of are covered 1900 special for more information about the pandemic. you can check out the covert 1900 section on our website, d, w dot com. i'm daniel winter in berlin until next time. thanks for watching. and take the ah, the news
