    Pope to endorse principles on AI ethics with Microsoft, IBM

    The "Rome Call for AI Ethics" asserts that the technology should respect privacy, work reliably and without bias, consider "the needs of all human beings" and operate transparently - an area of ongoing research because AI systems' decisions are often inscrutable. The document reflects growing interest among companies and institutions to set guardrails for the fast-evolving technology. Police have used facial recognition systems to investigate crimes, and Fortune 500 companies have used AI to vet job applicants - both examples of high-stakes tasks where deploying inaccurate or biased software could lead to harm.

    Coronavirus shakes Big Tech but investors fear worse is to come

    Coronavirus has been the catalyst for the kind of pause in the upward march of Big Tech that was starting to look overdue after a torrid 14 months. The losses have reached 11 per cent to 12 per cent across the board. Apple, with its supply chain vulnerabilities and disproportionate dependence on China, has been hit only slightly harder than Alphabet, which is essentially an advertising company riding the secular shift to digital but still tied to the fate of global consumer demand.

    Baidu Becomes Latest Tech Giant to Deliver Disappointing Outlook

    (Bloomberg) -- Baidu Inc. predicted revenue may slide as much as 13% this quarter, joining its fellow technology giants in warning about the impact of the deadly coronavirus.China’s internet search leader forecast a 5% to 13% plunge in sales to between 21 billion yuan ($3 billion) and 22.9 billion yuan in the March quarter, missing an average projection for 23.4 billion yuan. Its U.S.-traded shares slid as much as 1.6% in extended trading.From Microsoft Corp. and Apple Inc. to Alibaba Group Holding Ltd., the world’s largest corporations have either scaled back on projections or warned of a hit to their operations from Covid-19. Apart from the uncertainty of the outbreak, Baidu has been grappling with a slowing home economy and competition from upstarts like ByteDance Inc. that’ve lured advertisers away and depressed marketing rates. Chief Executive Officer Robin Li said it will take time for the world’s No. 2 economy to recover.“The return of economic growth will be a long-term issue after the epidemic, but many new opportunities are emerging,” the billionaire founder told employees in an internal memo obtained by Bloomberg.Certain businesses can thrive despite the epidemic, including online entertainment and education, Li added. Baidu’s Netflix-style unit iQiyi Inc. projected a better-than-expected revenue gain of 2% to 8% this quarter.“The virus has affected consumer spending, so naturally advertisers will want to postpone their budgets,” said David Dai, a Hong Kong-based analyst with Bernstein.Read more: Virus Outbreak Exposes $46 Billion Rift in China’s Tech IndustryIn recent days, anxiety has mounted about the spread of the virus outside of China, where it originated. But Baidu executives on Friday emphasized they remained upbeat about a gradual return to normality.“Business activities have started to pick up as people return to work. At Baidu, our employees are gradually returning to the office, applying strict safety measures,” Chief Financial Officer Herman Yu told analysts on a conference call. “We assume businesses across China will do the same, and that our marketing services will pick up at a faster pace into quarter-end.”Baidu had earlier reported better-than-expected revenue for the quarter ended December, when ad demand stabilized and pressure from competitors eased. To offset stalling growth, it looked to improve its bottom line especially by tightening content costs related to iQiyi. Longer term, the company is investing gains from its core search and news services into divisions like driverless cars and smart speakers.Baidu’s shares rallied after the company reported preliminary revenue for the December quarter that beat the highest of analysts’ estimates, but that gain’s mostly been erased since the epidemic triggered a broader selloff of Chinese stocks. The company has been surpassed in market value by rivals like Meituan Dianping and NetEase Inc. after shedding more than $11 billion last year.“For the majority, or probably all of the industries who advertise on us, those kinds of demand don’t disappear -- they’re just postponed,” Li said on the call Friday. “If you plan to marry, you’ll still get married. If you plan to buy a car, you’ll still buy a car. If you plan to become prettier, you’ll still go for cosmetic surgery. This kind of demand will come back after the epidemic ends.”To contact the reporter on this story: Zheping Huang in Hong Kong at zhuang245@bloomberg.netTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Edwin Chan at echan273@bloomberg.net, Colum MurphyFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2020 Bloomberg L.P.

    Dell Projects Profit That Falls Short of Estimates on PC Warning

    (Bloomberg) -- Dell Technologies Inc. gave a profit forecast that fell short of Wall Street estimates, in a sign that weaker corporate demand for personal computers will take a toll on the hardware giant.Profit, excluding some items, will be $5.90 to $6.60 a share in fiscal 2021, Chief Financial Officer Tom Sweet said Thursday during a conference call. Analysts, on average, projected $6.72, according to data compiled by Bloomberg.Dell expects $92 billion to $95 billion in fiscal 2021 revenue. The sales midpoint topped the average analyst estimate of $93.1 billion. A surge of corporate upgrades to PCs that has fueled robust demand will probably end in the second half of the fiscal year, Sweet said.Chief Executive Officer Michael Dell has sought to leverage the different parts of his empire to sell clients higher-value packages of hardware and software. But global economic issues, including trade conflicts, the past few months have slowed sales of equipment for data centers, particularly in China. Sweet said server demand would bounce back during the year, which will help boost the company’s overall revenue.Unlike competitors such as Microsoft Corp. and HP Inc., Dell didn’t account for any economic effect from the coronavirus outbreak in its forecast.“I didn’t think it was appropriate to quantify, because I’m not sure we know the full impact,” Sweet said in an interview. “We’ve been moving production and parts around. Are we at full capacity? No. We’re navigating through it based on what we know today.”Dell anticipates adjusted operating income of $8.9 billion to $9.5 billion in fiscal 2021, Sweet said.In the period ended Jan. 31, Revenue increased 1% to $24 billion, the Round Rock, Texas-based company said earlier Thursday in a statement. Analysts, on average, estimated $23.9 billion. Profit, excluding some items, was $2 a share in the fiscal fourth quarter, matching estimates.Sales in the company’s infrastructure solutions unit, which provides equipment to data centers, declined 11% to $8.8 billion. Storage hardware sales decreased 3% and servers and networking gear dropped 19%, highlighting a slower spending environment among large corporate clients.The personal computer division gained 8% to $11.8 billion in the quarter. Commercial sales rose 10% due to corporate clients upgrading their computers to adopt Microsoft’s Windows 10 operating system. Revenue from consumers climbed 4%.Shares fell to a low of $40.40 after closing at $43.56 in New York. The stock has declined 23% in the past 12 months.Dell said it repaid about $1.5 billion of gross debt in the quarter and $5 billion for the year. The company said it has paid down $19.5 billion in gross debt since closing its acquisition of EMC Corp. in September 2016. Dell also announced a $1 billion share buyback program over two years.To contact the reporter on this story: Nico Grant in San Francisco at ngrant20@bloomberg.netTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Jillian Ward at jward56@bloomberg.net, Andrew Pollack, Dan ReichlFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2020 Bloomberg L.P.
