Good morning,
Here’s your Wednesday edition of Asia AI News!
Here’s a round up of AI news from the past 24 hours. However, it’s hard to beat the news from China’s Dongguan city! The city has suspended its use of facial recognition in public restrooms. Why, you may ask, would the city use FR in public restrooms? Apparently, this facial recognition system was being used to limit the amount of toilet paper used by visitors to the toilet!
Scroll down for more stories below from around Asia.
Have a great day!
