Asia AI News
Apologies for the even later than usual Asia AI News, but it’s been one of those weeks! On the plus side, I do have a jam-packed newsletter for you!
Bloomberg reported yesterday that President Trump had signed off the terms of a phase one trade deal and everything was agreed in principle. Does that mean we are nearing the end of the daily on-again, off-again trade deal media coverage?
Well, China hasn’t confirmed that it has accepted the trade deal terms yet, so we will have to wait and see!
Meanwhile, Stanford University has published its 2019 edition of the AI Index Report: all 291 pages of it! This year’s edition tracks three times as many data sets as in 2018. You can download the full report and data here.
FYI I’m not planning to do a newsletter tomorrow (Saturday) this week (that is, unless there’s breaking news that Presidents Trump and Xi are having tea on the Great Wall after signing a trade deal!), so the next Asia AI News will be on Monday 16 December.
Have a great weekend!
