Good morning,
Here’s your Tuesday edition of Asia AI News! Sorry, no time for a newsletter yesterday.
Lots of curious stories in today’s newsletter! Fluent AI voice, ‘healing robots’, Japanese retail service avatars - and even Kentucky Fried Chicken frying robots! (I would try to make a 'finger lickin’ good’ joke, but KFC banned its famous slogan because of the pandemic!).
Also some trade war analysis and the New York Times obituary for the late great Samsung chairman Lee Kun-hee.
And Ant Group readies for a $34 billion IPO.
Scroll down for all this news and more!
Have a great week ahead!
