EU plans to review Microsoft's investment in OpenAI

According to CNBC, the European Commission announced on Tuesday local time that it is reviewing Microsoft's investment in OpenAI to determine whether it needs to be reviewed under EU compliance regulations. As of press time, Microsoft had not responded to CNBC's request for comment.

Microsoft committed to investing more than $10 billion in OpenAI last year and has a non-voting observer position on the new board of directors. Recently, Microsoft executives also officially joined the OpenAI board of directors and participated in OpenAI board meetings. However, the company stated that it does not own any part of OpenAI. Just have the right to participate in profit distribution.

It is worth noting that before the news of the European Commission's review came out, the British Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) announced in December last year that it would launch a preliminary review of Microsoft's investment. The U.S. Federal Trade Commission is also evaluating the collaboration, according to Bloomberg.

Xiaomi Motors says it will not cooperate with third parties to promote smart car selection

Yesterday, Xiaomi Motors continued to release Xiaomi Motors’ 100 questions from netizens (CIMC), answering questions about SU7 models, smart driving and other aspects.

Consistent with the information announced by the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, Xiaomi Motors said that Xiaomi Mi SU7 also has a Pro version. Regarding the specific information of this car, Xiaomi Motors will report to the public when the product is officially released. Compared with the standard version, the Pro version has various features. The performance will be improved to another level.

Xiaomi Auto stated that Xiaomi Smart Driving’s goal is to enter the first camp in the smart driving industry by the end of 2024. NOA is one of the core directions that various brands currently focus on in smart driving. Xiaomi will catch up with the first echelon in the industry in terms of the number of urban NOA in 2024.

As for whether Xiaomi Auto will cooperate with third-party car companies to launch similar "smart selection" cars? Xiaomi Motors stated that it has no such plan. From the beginning, Xiaomi decided to conduct self-research on the entire chain of design, R&D, and manufacturing. Xiaomi will fully own the car and bear its own risks.

From Xiaomi's perspective, this is not only Xiaomi's determination to build cars all in, but more importantly, only by wholly-owned car manufacturing and full-stack control can we control the quality and user experience of every aspect of the car.
