  • US Commerce Secretary Gina Raimondo has called out Nvidia for selling advanced AI chips to China in compliance with her own regulations.  (Fortune)

    The Department of Commerce blocked sales of Nvidia's most powerful graphics cards to China, so Nvidia sent less powerful cards that complied with the regulations.

    The department blocked those sales, so Nvidia sold even less powerful cards...  That were assembled in China in the first place.
    "It matters not if you obey the rules I have set forth.  If you endeavour to design a chip around a particular line that enables the forces of evil to explore AI, I shall move to control it the very next day," Raimondo said.  "And now at last it comes.  You will give me the chips freely!  In place of the Dark Lord you will set up a Queen.  And I shall not be dark, but beautiful and terrible as the Morning and the Night!  Fair as the Sea and the Sun and the Snow upon the Mountain!  Dreadful as the Storm and the Lightning!  Stronger than the foundations of the earth.  All shall love me and despair!"
