Will.i.am has raised $117 million dollars in venture funding. His company was founded in 2012, and started by creating devices like headphones. Its new AI product is a corporate voice assistant named Omega, similar to Siri or Alexa.

Tesla has announced that it will debut its electric semi-truck. We will get all of the full details on Nov. 16, but the truck is rumored to have between 200 and 300 miles of range per charge. It should be interesting to see if this semi-truck will have autonomous driving capabilities. 

WeWork is getting into the childhood education space. It is rumored that the co-working giant will open up a private elementary school called "WeGrow" in 2018. WeGrow will be inside of a New York City-based WeWork and caters to children ages 5 to 8.
