Good morning,
Here’s today’s edition Asia AI News, and due to work pressures, the first newsletter in a week!
Our old friend Megvii is back in the news with its filing for an IPO on Shaighai’s STAR Market on Friday. I won’t repeat the whole backstory here, but you’ll find a summary in the Jan. 15th issue of Asia AI News. The AI startup first announced its upcoming IPO in Spring 2019.
Meanwhile, Cangzhou clears Baidu’s robotaxis to take passengers; Bytedance plans to develop AI chips; and China is, predictably, not pleased with the latest US restrictions on Huawei and three other Chinese tech firms.
Scroll down for these stories and more!
Hope that you’re having a great week. Stay safe!
