GBT Technologies Inc. (OTC PINK:GTCH) filed, on December 2, 2020, a non-provisional patent with the United States Patent and Trademark Office seeking to protect certain intellectual property covering a new approach of Arithmetic Logic Unit (ALU) microchip. Danny Rittman, GBT's CTO, explained:

"We are aiming to break the ultimate limitations of our traditional, decimal/binary approach within ALU by introducing new calculation methods. In order to keep up with the growing demand for high performance computing, hardware engineers are looking to alternatives like Graphics Processing Units (GPUs) and Tensor Processing Units (TPUs) which are mainly based on parallel computing to execute more instructions at once rather than do basic operations faster. As Moore's Law is fading away, high performance computing will require a conceptual shift. As part of our R&D constant efforts to find new methods to improve our computing world, especially for advanced machine learning algorithms, we are seeking to develop new ideas with the goal of enabling high performance Arithmetic/Logic processing. The patent application seeks to protect a system and method. In parallel to filing the patent application, we plan to design an experimental, proof-of-concept microchip and test its performance against traditional ALUs."

Centene Corporation (NYSE:CNC) has completed its acquisition of Apixio, a healthcare analytics company offering AI technology solutions. According to an earlier press release, "Apixio provides a technology suite that mines, compiles and analyzes large volumes of disparate, unstructured patient data (such as physician notes and medical charts), and creates and refines algorithms to extract high-quality insights to support payers' and providers' administrative activities." Michael F. Neidorff, Chairman, President and CEO of Centene, said:

"We are pleased to have completed our acquisition of Apixio, further solidifying our position as a technology company focused on healthcare. I would like to officially welcome the Apixio team to the Centene family and look forward to working together to leverage comprehensive data to help improve the lives of our members."
