Arm’s stock went WOOSH 🚀 overnight - thanks to AI.
And have you ever seen AI and a Ketchup collab?
We found a pic, but we’re not sure if it’s AI or Real. Can you tell?
And thanks to our sponsor today: Shortform! Making stuffy academic books less boring!
Arm, a UK tech company known for designing chips, has seen its stock soar by over 50%.
This is because more companies want its technology for their AI.
Arm rules the world
Arm is so valuable because it designs the chips that run in smartphones, and Apple computers since they switched to Apple Silicon.
Once upon a time processors were dominated by x86 architecture and required a lot of power to run.
Arm came along and designed the highly efficient chips that let us have all that power in our tiny phones! That power efficiency is key to making AI applications scalable.
The stock everyone wants
Arm's shares shot up by 58% when they started trading on the Nasdaq, the US stock exchange.
Now, the company is valued at about $120 billion, double what it was when it first went public.
Arm's CEO, Rene Haas, says this success is because more tech companies are making products that use AI.
Arm's decision to list its shares in the US instead of the UK caused some debate - they are, after all a British company.
They were accused of showing a lack of faith in the UK economy (can you blame them?)
But the company says they might consider listing in London later on.
Overall, Arm's success shows how important its technology is in today's tech world, especially with the growing demand for AI.
Arm looks like a great investment - but I’m putting all my money in Leg.

AI's been on a roll lately, acing everything from translating languages to even crafting wedding speeches.
But when it comes to cooking, let's just say it's been a bit... experimental. More like a scene out of Tarantino movie than actual food.
Enter Heinz, teaming up with VML Spain to change the game.
They've just dropped the first-ever cookbook that teaches AI (and us humans) how to cook like total pros.
Caio Fontenele, Heinz's new ventures director, said: "With more than half of us using AI for daily stuff, including cooking tips, we thought, why not put it to the ultimate test – cooking?"
Turns out, even AI needs a helping hand in the kitchen!
So, Heinz chefs joined forces with AI experts to teach our digital pals how to whip up mouthwatering dishes using one key ingredient:
The result? The Heinz AI Cookbook – a collection of prompts that guide AI to create stunning food pics and recipes that you can easily replicate at home.
Paco Badia, the creative genius at VML Spain, chimed in: "We're all about showing off Heinz tomatoes, the absolute best in the biz, as the star of every recipe.
And AI's struggle with food pics? Well, that's just another way to show off our tomato mastery!"
This tech-savvy project blends Heinz's 150 years of tomato expertise with the latest in AI wizardry.
Heinz chefs, AI whizzes, and prompt gurus teamed up to create over 30 drool-worthy recipes, all featuring the magic touch of Heinz tomatoes.
Well, this AI Cookbook is the next big thing, following their mission to share the tomato love with the world.
Want a taste of the action?
You can snag a free e-copy of the Heinz AI Cookbook online, or keep an eye out for lucky influencers in the UK who'll get their hands on a physical copy.
It's all part of the PR blitz and social media extravaganza.
Free prompts to download? Heinz stole our idea!
