Good morning,
Here’s the Friday edition of Asia AI News! A little later than usual, but still on Friday nevertheless!
There is so much AI-related news from the past few days I just know that I haven’t managed to catch it all.
Scroll down for news on autonomous vehicles; an automated censorship app developed by Chinese researchers; Beijing’s designation of a demonstration zone for intelligent connected vehicles; Jack Ma and the end of China’s tech golden age; plenty of comment on China-US trade relations; and another robodog video that - apparently - terrified the Internet; and so much more!
Stay safe and have a great weekend!
