Plex Systems Accelerates Push Into IoT With DATTUS Acquisition
"Think about it. As consumers, we didn’t loudly voice our desire for AI or NLP. But that didn’t stop Apple from delivering Siri on an iPhone. Pretty soon Microsoft delivered Cortana on Windows 10; Google delivered Google Now; Amazon delivered Alexa and now Bixby is on your (newer) Samsung Galaxy. We see these digital technologies being absorbed into the manufacturing landscape in much the same way, as long as solution providers like Plex and DATTUS continue to innovate and push them into the mainstream."

A decade of digital dependency - Ofcom
In contrast to a decade ago, most people now say they need and expect a constant internet connection, wherever they go. Two-thirds of adults (64%) say the internet is an essential part of their life. One in five adults (19%) say they spend more than 40 hours a week online, an increase from 5% just over ten years ago. For the first time this year, women spend more time online than men.

Over the last decade, better access to the internet has transformed how we interact with each other. Two-fifths of people (41%) say being online enables them to work more flexibly, and three-quarters (74%) say it keeps them close to friends and family.

Official Google Africa Blog: Google for Nigeria: Making the internet more useful for more people
Today, at our second Google for Nigeria event, we announced more products and programs to help more people in Nigeria and across Africa benefit from the opportunities the web has to offer.

Only 35 percent of Africans have access to the web, compared to 48 percent in Asia, 67 in Latin America, 85 in Europe and 95 in North America. Many internet users in Africa don’t have Wi-Fi in their homes, relying instead on the few public Wi-Fi hotspots to connect, communicate and learn.

France sets out 5G roadmap |
The roadmap sets ambitious targets:
launch several 5G pilot projects in a variety of regions, and host some of the world’s pioneer industrial 5G applications;
allocate new 5G frequencies and ensure a commercial rollout in at least one major city by 2020;
provide 5G coverage of the main transport routes by 2025.
It is built around four priority courses of action:
France’s 5G roadmap draws on the feedback the Government obtained from the consultation that ended in Q1 2018, and incorporates Arcep’s work programme. Four major courses of action were thus identified:

free up and allocate radio frequencies for 5G networks;
foster the development of new uses;
support the deployment of 5G infrastructures;
ensure transparency and dialogue over 5G rollouts and keep the public informed.
Working groups chaired by the concerned authorities and government departments are being created to identify expectations and undertake actions in the identified areas, under the aegis of the Directorate-General for Enterprise (DGE) and Arcep.

Loon and Wing ‘graduate’ from X moonshots to independent Alphabet businesses - The Verge
Alphabet has announced that Loon and Wing — two of its X moonshot projects — are “graduating” today to become full companies underneath the Alphabet corporate umbrella. The two companies will be classified as “Other Bets” within Alphabet, alongside former X projects like Waymo, Chronicle, and Verily.

While the official designation of the companies has changed, their work remains largely the same. Loon will continue to work on using balloons to bring internet to people around the world, and Wing will keep building delivery drones. Neither company had updates on those projects to go along with the announcement, but obviously Alphabet is happy with the pace of the work, given the promotions within.

Now, these two projects will be expected to function as real companies with an eye toward becoming successful businesses down the road, instead of merely incubating within X.
