Over the past years, Google has gained immense power in the tech industry and now it has been sued by the US Department of Justice over an alleged monopoly control over the advertisement market.

According to the information, the antitrust lawsuit filed by the U.S. Department of Justice on Google claims that the search giant has monopolized the digital ad market.

The DOJ is joined by 8 U.S. states in the lawsuit including New York, California, and Colorado. These states blame Google for curbing digital competitiveness and curbing other businesses.

“Google has corrupted legitimate competition in the ad tech industry by engaging in a systematic campaign to seize control of the wide swath of high-tech tools used by publishers, advertisers, and brokers to facilitate digital advertising.” says the lawsuit.

While being filed in U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia, the lawsuit wants to force Google to see much of its suit of ad technology products, which includes software for buying and selling ads.

DOJ described Google’s behavior on this matter.

“Google’s plan has been simple but effective: (1) neutralize or eliminate ad tech competitors, actual or potential, through a series of acquisitions; and (2) wield its dominance across digital advertising markets to force more publishers and advertisers to use its products while disrupting their ability to use competing products effectively.

Each time a threat has emerged, Google has used its market power in one or more of these ad tech tools to quash the threat. The result: Google’s plan for durable, industry-wide dominance has succeeded.”

Despite being sued by U.S. DOJ, Google rephrased that the digital advertisement market is healthy and competitive, citing strong competitors such as Meta, Amazon, and Microsoft.

Google has published an official answer to this lawsuit saying “DOJ is doubling down on a flawed argument that would slow innovation, raise advertising fees and make it harder for thousands of small businesses and publishers to grow.”

Google also pinpointed that the government should not pick between winners and losers in a competitive industry, which makes sense in the right way. However, Google also said that such a lawsuit will be a drawback for its advertisement technology designed for the advertisement industry.

“Threaten the free and fair markets upon which our economy is based. We will aggressively protect consumers, safeguard competition and work to ensure economic fairness and opportunity for all.” Attorney General Merrick B. Garland said monopolies.

Huawei will build the industry’s first digital robot with China’s National Pharmaceutical Group, Sinopharm for the pharmaceutical industry. This is a brand new progress made by the Chinese tech maker to advance its growth in digital robot technologies.

In 2019, Sinopharm began to explore digital robot technology. Several subsidiaries have implemented more than 200 business processes. There are problems such as scattered business scenarios, the inability to share robot resources, and inconsistent business processes. In order to solve some problems in the early testing, open up resource sharing, unify and optimize business processes, and realize the digitalization of deep integration of operations and business.

In 2022, Sinopharm joined hands with Huawei’s digital robot team and Huawei partners. This partnership focuses on key points such as customers, data, and business elements, sorted out the business process, and planned and built the first digital robot competence center platform in the domestic pharmaceutical industry.

Relying on the large-scale application capabilities of Huawei’s WeAutomate digital robots and mature product capabilities, Sinopharm has built a digital robot capability center platform that can meet the automation application needs of thousands of subsidiaries of the group.

After the launch, all subsidiaries of Sinopharm Holdings can share common tech in business processes, and share digital robot resources in a unified and intensive manner. In addition, the Sinopharm Digital Robotics Competence Center can fully support the group’s common situations and the personalized scenarios of the branch companies.

The common scene process is uniformly constructed by the headquarters and can be used by all branch companies. On the other hand, the custom scene process is customized and shared by the branch companies.

In the future, Huawei’s WeAutomate digital robot will continue to provide technological advantages and help Sinopharm to promote more general scenarios of digital robots to all sub-companies. On the basis of realizing the sharing of digital robot resources, it will simultaneously leverage the innovation capabilities of branch companies to meet business needs.

The process of implementing Huawei’s digital robots is also a process of normalizing and standardizing the general scenarios of branch companies, which promotes the optimization and unification of Sinopharm’s business processes. After the launch of the Sinopharm Digital Robotics Competence Center, the efficiency of the online robot business scenarios can be increased by up to 25 times, and the average efficiency can be increased by more than 10 times, effectively releasing digital momentum.
