Here’s your Thursday edition of Asia AI News!
Apologies for yesterday’s newsletter. The publishing system informed me that my fully completed newsletter was saved and ready to go, but - as you will have noticed - that turned out not to be the case!
Some interesting news stories below, from startup funding to China’s smart cities and its growing digital economy.
Obviously, as the December 15th deadline given by the US to impose new tariffs looms, we’re going to see a lot more comment and speculation on the US-China trade war, trade deal and tariffs. So, will keep including these stories, although little of this coverage is likely to be very useful!
Enjoy the rest of your day!
