IBM To Fuel AI Digital Transformation In Malaysia!

IBM is offering IT infrastructure with a new level of security and reliability to fuel Malaysia’s AI digital transformation!

 

AI Digital Transformation In Malaysia Needs Better IT Infra!

Malaysia is at a pivotal point in its digital journey, with businesses future-proofing their organisations by leveraging AI and automation.

The digital economy is now a cornerstone of Malaysia’s economy, contributing 23.2% of the nation’s gross domestic product in 2021. The Malaysia Minister of Communications and Digital, Fahmi Fadzil, anticipates that this will increase to 25.5% by 2025, with a value of RM382 billion. The National Tech Association of Malaysia is even more optimistic, and believes that the digital economy will hit that economic contribution much earlier.

The increased urgency in adopting cutting-edge technologies like AI is driving demand for better IT infrastructure. Better not just in terms of performance and availability, but also security and reliability.

An IDC report forecasted that AI spending in the Asia Pacific region alone will skyrocket to US$78 billion by 2027. And these AI investments are predominantly being funnelled into infrastructure provisioning. That’s because ultimately, digital transformation in any nation is reliant on its IT infrastructure.

There is no one-size-fits-all approach to AI infrastructure. Organisations must provision the right infrastructure for the AI task at hand.

They have to not only look at the size and scale of the AI models and tasks, they also have to consider security and privacy issues, as well as regulatory compliance. A resilient infrastructure by design is also critical, with AI workloads becoming essential backbones to mission critical applications and workloads.

To that end, IBM Power Systems offer a secure and reliable platform for enterprises to perform inference, and run AI algorithms on their most sensitive data and transactions.

IBM Power Systems run on the Power10 core, which is designed for AI acceleration. Each Power10 core on the IBM Power S1022 can process up to 42% more batch queries per second than a comparable x86 server with a peak load of 40 concurrent users, while running large language AI models.

IBM Power10 systems also offers enterprise out-0f-the-box low-latency transactional capabilities and throughput, resiliency, continuous availability (99.999%) and concurrent replace and repair.

The IBM Power10 is also designed for greater efficiency. The Power E1080, for example, offers 3X the capacity with 52% lower power consumption for the same workload, compared to the Power E880C. It also offers 33% lower power consumption than the Power E980 for the same workload.

IBM claims that, in general, Power10 systems offer 6X more throughput per container cluster, and 40% to 50% lower cost than comparable x86 solutions.

On top of that, the IBM Power Systems are built to be secure by design, with a fully-integrated secured stack from processor chip to operating system, offering quantum-safe encryption and fully homomorphic encryption (FHE).

Did America Hide Logo Of New Chinese Cranes With US Flag?

Did America try to hide the logo on new gantry cranes with the US flag, so that people won’t know that they were made in China?

Take a look at the new viral claim, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Did America Hide Logo Of New Chinese Cranes With US Flag?

People are sharing a video showing the US flag falling from a gantry crane, revealing the ZPMC logo, together with this message :

During opening ceremony of new gantry cranes in USA. A sudden gust of wind blew away the board covering Chinese brand name. You can see the board is black on one side and has American flag on the other.

What an embarrassment trying to hide the Chinese made cranes.

 

Truth : America Did Not Hide Logo Of New Chinese Cranes With US Flag

The video is genuine, but taken out of context. Here are the facts…

Fact #1 : Video Was Recorded On 29 March 2013

The viral message was intentionally vague on when it happened, suggesting that it was new.

The truth is – the video was recorded more than 8 years ago – on 29 March 2013 in Miami, Florida.

At that time, the President of the United States was Barack Obama, not Joe Biden or Donald Trump.

Fact #2 : It Was Not An Opening Ceremony Of Any Kind

The viral message said that this incident happened during an “opening ceremony of new gantry cranes” in the United States. That is completely FALSE.

The video was recorded at the Port of Miami Tunnel project in Miami, Florida – just before President Obama spoke about his infrastructure plan.

It was related to the Port of Miami tunnel project on Dodge Island, which would connect the port to the interstate highway system, and had nothing to do with the gantry cranes.

Fact #3 : The Logo Was Covered For Optics

As President Obama was going to speak about shipping “products made in America” through ports like the Port of Miami, so it would have been awkward optics to have Chinese logos in the background.

Therefore, members of the White House advance team decided to cover up the ZPMC logo with a US flag.

Not only did the ZPMC have Chinese characters, it was also a Chinese state-owned company. Awkward indeed!

Fact #4 : They Left The ZPMC Logo Visible

After wind blew the American flag off the logo, a member of the White House team went onto the gantry to retrieve the flag.

But instead of putting it back over the logo, he shifted the American flag to the side of the gantry.

Ultimately, the ZPMC logo was left visible during President Obama’s speech, as this picture shows.

Fact #5 : The Gantry Cranes Were Not New

The gantry cranes seen in the picture appear to be ZPMC Super Post-Panamax (SPP) cranes that were delivered in January 2005.

They were more than 8 years old when President Obama spoke at the Port of Miami in 2013, and more than 16.5 years old when this fake news started circulating.

So the claim that the Americans were trying to pass off new Chinese cranes as American-made cranes is nothing but fake news.

Now that you know the truth, please SHARE this fact check so other people won’t be fooled by it!
