Good morning,
Here’s the last roundup of AI and emerging tech news this week.
A new user survey from Strategy Analytics on smart speaker sales is out and it is clear that China’s smart speaker market is continuing to enjoy strong growth and the devices are achieving mainstream acceptance.
China overtook the US in Q1 2019 to become the largest market for smart speakers, selling 10.6 million devices during the first quarter. We also saw China’s top three smart speaker manufacturers - Alibaba, Baidu and Xiaomi - taking 48% of the global market share for the devices. However, most of these devices are sold at home and so Chinese brands seem to be playing the key role in developing China’s smart speaker market.
Other than that, there is news about education, the latest Property Rights Alliance global IP rights rankings and, of course, the latest commentary on the US-China trade war.
Have a great weekend!
