Google bets big on AI in China. It's The Daily Crunch.

THE DAILY CRUNCH
WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 13 2017 By Darrell Etherington

Google invests in AI research in China, T-Mobile targets TV and Target wants to try to catch up with Amazon on same-day shipping. All that and more in The Daily Crunch for December 13, 2017.

1. Google opening AI research lab in China

Google is opening a new research center in China, with a focus specifically on AI. The company has been hiring up a ton of top AI talent within the country, but the news is still somewhat surprising given that Google has very little product presence within the Chinese market.

The search giant has been essentially reconfiguring its business around AI, however, and China is a key leader in the space that is outpacing the U.S. in the field according to some accounts.

2. T-Mobile will launch its own TV service next year

The Uncarrier also wants to be the Uncabler... the Un-TV provider? Whatever – it's launching its own paid TV service. I just got back from vacation I'll be funnier in a few days.

3. Target is buying a same-day delivery provider

If you can't provide same-day shipping are you even really a retailer? That's the question companies must be asking themselves in the age of Amazon, and Target definitely doesn't want to be left behind. Target acquired Shipt, which is based in Alabama, and spent $550 million to make it happen.

4. Amazon rolls out same-day delivery to thousands of new markets

'Coincidentally' Amazon also today announced a broad expansion of its same-day and one-day shipping, covering thousands of new markets. The competition might want to catch up, but Amazon isn't going to make it easy.

5. People were Googling things this year

Yes, they were; specific kinds of things, including a lot of 'how.' And gadgets, and tragic things, and sad things. Some happy stuff, too – a little bit of that.

6. This Japanese space company raised a significant Series A to make it to the Moon

Space is expensive, but a $90 million Series A definitely makes it more viable for a startup to dream of getting to the moon with two lunar missions before the end of 2020, which is what ispace hopes to do.

7. Apple invests $390 million into iPhone X laser sensor maker

Apple wants to help its laser supplier grow, which probably means it has big ambitions for TrueDepth – across more devices. I'd love Face ID in a MacBook Apple, so hopefully that's partly what this is about.

Also, check out the TechCrunch Gift Guide for 2017. Time's running out – you're not creative enough to figure out the rest of your list on your own.

Today's Story Highlights

New B2B Payments Platform Reaches Across Borders
Nanopay has unveiled a new platform that will let companies process
business-to-business payments between bank accounts across borders. The
platform is currently in private beta. It will become generally
available in February, initially enabling cross-border payments between
Canada and the United States. Cross-border payments with India and China
will be added in Q2.

Feds: Cloud Cybersecurity Benefits Now Outweigh Risks
Many federal government IT managers used to be wary of the shortcomings
of migrating to cloud technology because of potential data security
problems affecting email, business systems, personal data records and,
especially, national security operations. However, after the federal
"cloud first" initiative's six-year effort, there are signs that federal
IT managers have changed their assessment.

The Strange Bedfellows That Make Sales AI Work
At some point, the discussion about artificial intelligence and sales is
going to mature. Too many people still think AI for sales will resemble
C-3PO, a bumbling assistant that gets in the way more often than not, or
the Hal 9000, subverting the sales process in ways that endanger the
very existence of the sales person. As the discussions mature, the
reality is becoming clearer.

Apple's iMac Pro is coming on December 14. It's The Daily Crunch.

THE DAILY CRUNCH
TUESDAY, DECEMBER 12 2017 By Anthony Ha

Apple announces a release date for the iMac Pro, Google launches new photo apps and Nintendo shares some Switch sales numbers. All that and more in The Daily Crunch for December 12, 2017. Also: The new Star Wars movie is really good.

1. Apple's iMac Pro arrives December 14

Despite months of silence since the initial announcement at WWDC, it looks like Apple is going to make good on its promise to deliver the new iMac Pro in December.

Pricing starts at $4,999 and includes up to an 18-core Xeon processor, 128GB of memory and 4TB of storage. My colleague Brian Heater says this is "a pretty serious piece of machinery."

2. 'The Last Jedi' is the most moving Star Wars movie — and the funniest

I've seen the new Star Wars, and I have to say it: This is the best one since The Empire Strikes Back.

3. Google launches three new photography apps for testing experimental technology

This is part of a new series of what Google calls photography "appsperiments." (Get it?)

4. Nintendo sells 10 million Switch consoles since launch

The console launched back in March, and is selling at a similar pace to Nintendo's previous hardware superstar, the Wii.

5. Ed Lee, SF mayor who had a close relationship with the tech world, has died aged 65

As mayor of San Francisco, Lee made many efforts to bring the city's technology industry closer together with its civic life, both through initiatives of his own, and through partnerships with folks like Ron Conway.

6. Apple GymKit is coming to a treadmill near you

Unveiled at WWDC over the summer, the platform is designed to make wearing an Apple Watch a more seamless experience.

7. Descript gets $5M to make sound editing like a word document

This is the new startup from former Groupon CEO Andrew Mason.
