Good morning,
Here’s your Monday edition of Asia AI News!
There have been few big AI news stories out of Asia during the past few days, while politically-charged tech stories have stolen all the headlines.
Obviously, the biggest tech news of the weekend was the continuing coverage of the U.S. ban of TikTok and WeChat late Thursday. Donald Trump’s executive order ban the two apps from operating in the U.S. in 45 days if they are not sold by their Chinese-owned parent companies. Scroll down for more comment and opinion on this.
Have a great week ahead!
