Good morning,
Here’s Wednesday’s edition of Asia AI News!
Needless to say that China is not happy with the UK decision to remove Huawei from 5G networks and the Trump administration is delighted.
Meanwhile, researchers fromAutonomous University of Barcelona and Pompeu Fabra University have counted 195 new roll-outs of robots globally since the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic. I’m sure that they could add a few more to that figure, not to mention Dubai Electricity and Water Authority’s purchase of two Boston Dynamics Spot the dog robots announced this week.
Scroll down for these stories and more.
Stay safe and have a good day!
