Good morning,
Here’s your Friday edition of Asia AI News! Apologies once again for skipping yesterday’s, but I completely ran out of time.
A huge newsletter today! And some significant news from across Asia, including some funding news, the awarding of the world’s first commercial license to test a passenger-grade drone, details of the first phase of the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) Veritas initiative, a new smart city law in Japan and lots more!
Have a good day ahead and stay safe!
