The Bank of Japan is set to predict for the first time that inflation will remain well short of its 2% target beyond Governor Haruhiko Kuroda's term through early 2023, say sources familiar with its thinking. The central bank is also expected to trim this fiscal year's inflation forecast reflecting cuts in cellphone charges, the sources say, underscoring the challenge it faces in eradicating Japan's sticky deflationary mindset. Such projections, to be made in fresh quarterly estimates due out next week, would reinforce expectations the BOJ will maintain its massive stimulus for the foreseeable future.
Deutsche Telekom has invested in Celo, a blockchain payments platform that allows mobile phone access to "decentralised finance" projects that allow users to bypass traditional financial firms, the company said on Tuesday. Deutsche Telekom has also bought an unspecific amount of the Celo digital token used on the platform, it said, following major firms such as Tesla Inc to hold cryptocurrency in their coffers. San Francisco-based Celo, used in over 100 countries, allows users to send and receive money in the form of its tokens to mobile phones, co-founder Rene Reinsberg said.
Atos completed in 2020 a series of bolt-on acquisitions in a bid for its mid-term revenues to reach a 65% share in digital, cloud, security and decarbonisation. In February, Atos and U.S. rival DXC Technology decided to discontinue talks about what would have been the deal-hungry IT consulting group's biggest acquisition to date, worth more than $10 billion. Atos confirmed its full-year guidance of revenue growth of 3.5% to 4% and an operating margin of between 9.4% and 9.8%.

A British parliamentary committee will summon finance minister Rishi Sunak and former Prime Minister David Cameron to appear before it to answer questions about the ex-leader's lobbying for the now failed supply-chain finance firm Greensill Capital. A series of inquiries have been launched into what access lobbyists have had to Prime Minister Boris Johnson's government after questions were raised about Cameron's attempts to get support for Greensill. Cameron has denied breaking any code of conduct or government rules and the government has repeatedly said the outcome of his discussions on Greensill's proposals for access to a COVID-19 loan scheme were not taken up.

The recent infusion of additional capital allows the Company to acquire, license and internally develop the technology needed to transform its AI-driven SWARM solution into a fully functioning, AI-driven software as a service (SaaS) platformSAN ANTONIO, April 20, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- CloudCommerce, Inc. (CLWD), a technology driven provider of digital advertising solutions, today announced that its recent infusion of additional capital allows the Company to acquire, license and internally develop the technology needed to transform its AI-driven SWARM solution into a fully functioning, AI-driven software as a service (SaaS) platform. “We are rapidly transforming our business from a traditional advertising agency services provider into a true technology driven company,” said Andrew Van Noy, CloudCommerce CEO. “While we are extremely pleased that our SWARM solution continues to deliver advertising results beyond client expectations, our dream was always to develop SWARM into a fully functioning software as a service (SaaS) platform. Our recent infusion of additional capital allows us to begin the process of turning that dream into a reality.” Successful B2B companies like Salesforce, Snowflake and Square use the SaaS model to sell software to other businesses as a service. These cloud-based services help organizations run more efficiently or automate internal functions. Many businesses rely on these services to optimize their marketing, sales, customer service, and operations efforts. Once established in the marketplace, SaaS companies usually benefit from exceptionally high gross profit margins. “Our AI-driven SWARM solution struck a raw nerve in the advertising industry,” Mr. Van Noy continued. “Today, more than half of all advertising dollars spent in the U.S. are spent on digital forms of advertising. As a result, successful campaigns must be data driven. However, waste and inefficiency still persist. To reduce advertising costs by as much as 50%, we use SWARM to build custom audiences for highly targeted digital marketing campaigns.” Mr. Van Noy concluded,” Our plan is to use the agency services side of our business to continue offering our SWARM solution to major brands, while at the same time developing SWARM into an AI-driven SaaS platform. We are aggressively searching for acquisitions, licensing partners and talent that can help us achieve this goal. Our pending corporate name change to AiAdvertising, Inc., will help make our intentions clear.” For more information about AiAdvertising, please visit the Company’s new website at www.AiAdvertising.com. About CloudCommerce CloudCommerce is a technology driven provider of digital advertising solutions. Our flagship solution, SWARM, analyzes a robust mix of audience data to help businesses find who to talk to, what to say to them, and how to market to them. We do this by applying advanced data science, behavioral science, artificial intelligence, and market research techniques to discover, develop and create custom audiences for highly targeted digital marketing campaigns.

Israel has registered eight cases of a coronavirus variant first identified in India and believes that the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine is at least partially effective against it, an Israeli health official said on Tuesday. An initial seven cases of the Indian variant were detected in Israel last week among people arriving from abroad and who have since undergone preliminary testing, the Health Ministry said. "The impression is that the Pfizer vaccine has efficacy against it, albeit a reduced efficacy," the ministry's director-general, Hezi Levy, told Kan public radio, saying the number of cases of the variant in Israel now stood at eight.

12 bit PWM Dimming for accurate color rendition and color depth for HMI in Digital Consumer, Smart Home & IoT applications High Performance 36-Channel LED Driver with Advanced Color Mixing and Noise Reduction Technology 12 bit PWM Dimming for accurate color rendition and color depth for HMI in Digital Consumer, Smart Home & IoT applications MILPITAS, Calif., April 20, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Lumissil Microsystems today introduced the IS31FL3246; an ultra-low power 36 channel LED driver supporting high resolution color, RGB group programming, and advanced noise reduction technology. The driver comes in the same package pinout as the popular IS31FL3236A; providing an easy performance upgrade for existing IS31FL3236A designs. The IS31FL3246 FxLED driver integrates a unique PWM clocking technology for color mix modes such as, 8-bit RGB with 10-bit fine tuning @ 32 kHz or 8-bit RGB with 8-bit fine tuning @ 128 kHz. In addition, the RGB LED current can be individually group programmed to minimize CPU overhead and reduce I2C bus transactions during color mixing operations. The PWM clocking, LED current adjust and RGB grouping enables 3-dimensional dimming control for accurate color reproduction and ultra-low brightness adjustment capability. “The IS31FL3246 is not only backward compatible with our popular IS31FL3236A it also incorporates leading edge technology,” said Ven Shan, Vice President of Lumissil. “Its 3-dimensional dimming is a first in the industry giving software developers unprecedented control over RGB LED color mixing.” The IS31FL3246’s unprecedented performance allows the system designers not only to add lighting effects to improve aesthetics but also to use it as a medium for communication with the user in a variety of digital consumer, smart home and IoT devices. Advanced Noise reduction technology with independent color mixing and brightness control along with low power consumption make it ideal for low power designs. Key features and benefits The IS31FL3246: Pin-to-pin compatible with the IS31FL3236A with no need to change PCB. The 3-Dimensional color mixing and dimming control for accurate color rendition with RGB group dimming and I2C auto address increment for reduced software overhead. The IC integrates Phase delay and PWM clock inversion to minimize EMI. Low 1uA of shutdown current and less than 3mA operating current for ultra-efficient designs. Specified over -40°C to +125°C for extended industrial temperature range. Availability, packaging and pricing: The IS31FL3246 comes in either a QFN-44 or eTQFP-48 thermally enhanced package. Evaluation boards and reference software are available to design engineers. The device is sampling with 10k production pricing starting at $0.66.
