Would you try Victoria Beckham’s sleeve styling trick?

All eyes were on Victoria Beckham last weekend as she attended the nuptials of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle at Windsor Castle. And, while many fashion fans noticed that she had channelled a similar look to the one she wore at Prince William and Kate Middleton’s wedding in 2011, the internet was also talking about the interesting way she was styling her sleeves.

Her dress – which was, naturally, bespoke Victoria Beckham – featured sleeves with a slit up the side and a cuff at the wrist. However, Beckham chose not to put her hands through the cuffs, which led to a little confusion on Twitter as to whether she had done it on purpose.

Will you be styling your sleeves like VB this summer?

Samsung scans the world for game-changing AI

SEOUL — Samsung Electronics[1] is investing in European startups specializing in artificial intelligence technology, with expectations that they will become the next growth engine for the world’s largest smartphone maker and leading chipmaker. Samsung Catalyst Fund, the South Korean company’s venture fund, participated last month in £15 million series B investments, or the second round of funding, in Swedish map data company Mapillary along with four other investors, according to industry-data provider Crunchbase. Mapillary is the world’s largest collaborative street-level imagery platform, whose map data and technology can be applied to autonomous driving.

Earlier this month, Samsung Next, another venture fund, invested in Beekeeper, a Zurich, Switzerland-based digital workplace app developer, according to an industry source familiar with the matter. Beekeeper digitizes the nondesk workforce by connecting operational systems and communication channels. “Samsung invested in the company for its AI projects, but the amount is not that big at this moment,” said the source, who asked not to be named. “The company is moving to strengthen its AI sector with the investments.”

Samsung’s investments in Europe come after Vice Chairman Lee Jae-yong’s business trip to the continent in March, his first overseas outreach since being released from prison in February. Lee is gearing up to reconnect with his global network after the Seoul High Court suspended his his two-and-half-year sentence[2] on corruption charges involving South Korea’s former president, Park Geun-hye. Samsung is also opening new AI labs in the U.K., Canada and Russia this month, and it plans to employ more than 1,000 researchers by 2020.

That comes after it launched its first AI research center in Seoul in November, followed by another one in California’s Silicon Valley in January. “I am sure that these centers will help Samsung become a game-changer in the upcoming AI era,” said Kim Hyun-seok, CEO of Samsung Electronics, in a speech on Tuesday at the launch of its Cambridge AI center in the U.K. Samsung has long been a leading hardware company — producing smartphones, semiconductors and home appliances — but it is shifting its focus to AI technology as it seeks to narrow the gap with global technology giants, such as Google and Amazon.

At the annual CES exhibition in Las Vegas in January, Samsung introduced its internet of things platform, Smart Things, which connects and controls its home appliances. “Samsung Electronics wants to expand its internet of things tech to intelligence of things by using its AI-based voice assistant Bixby,” said Kim Roko, an analyst at Hana Financial Investment. “The company plans to connect smartphones and home appliances, and further link to cars through its auto electricity platform.” Shares of Samsung Electronics fell 0.8% to 51,400 won on Thursday, after gaining 4.9% in the past three sessions.

The benchmark Kospi dipped 0.2% to 2,466.01 on Thursday.
