Good morning,
Here’s your Thursday edition of Asia AI News!
On Tuesday British Prime Minister Boris Johnson approved a limited roel for Huawei in Britain’s 5G mobile network. EU guidelines announced yesterday give EU members the right to ban Huawei from their 5G networks, but stopped short of an EU-wide ban.
In India, the UK launched a £4 million ($5.2m) ‘Innovation Challenge Fund’ to support social tech and cleantech startups in India. And, in other news, China is reportedly using robots as waiters and doctors to limit human contact with the coronavirus.
