Asia AI News
Good morning,
Here’s the Friday edition of Asia AI News! It took me longer than usual due to work commitments, but I think that it was worth it!
Scroll down to read more about Beijing’s masterplan to invest an estimated 10 trillion yuan ($1.4 trillion) over six years in technology development and infrastructure; Alibaba’s plans to invest $1 billion in its AI and Internet of Things (IoT) ecosystem; and much more!
Also, ‘Where is Asia taking the world with AI?’ - a good sum up of regional AI development and how it all fits together from Dr. Ayesha Khanna and Dr. Parag Khanna.
Have a great weekend!
