Good morning and good afternoon!
Here’s Friday’s Asia AI News, a little later than usual due to work pressures.
Lots of news in today’s newsletter touching startup funding, driver-less vehicles, robotics, smart cities, tourism and semiconductors.
Meanwhile, despite more criticism from China’s media, there’s still no official comment from China on whether it will approve TikTok’s proposed U.S. deal with Oracle and Walmart. Last week, the U.S. Commerce Department pushed back the ban on app stores providing access to TikTok until Sunday.
Stay safe and have a great weekend!
