Good morning!
Here’s Tuesday’s of Asia AI News! In case you missed it, I’m now sending out the newsletter twice per week, on Tuesdays and Fridays.
Some interesting news to share today, including the $700 million Series D round of Beijing-based AI startup 4Paradigm.
Still too early for much commentary on US-China relations and the future for technology competition and trade under the new Biden administration. However, Huawei’s founder Ren Zhengfei was quoted over the weekend praising the U.S. ‘beacon of technology’ to be emulated. This comes a couple of months after Huawei sold its Honor brand to survive and as the company enters early-stage talks to sell its premium smartphone brands P and Mate.
Scroll down for more news.
Stay safe and have a good week!
