Good morning,
News from CES 2020 is starting to hit the headlines with BellaBot the table-waiting robot from Chinese manufacturer PuduTech making the news all over the world.
Meanwhile, Chinese AI company Megvii has finally got clearance for its Hong Kong IPO, according to Reuters. The company ended weeks of speculation in early December, postponing its IPO to 2020, whilst it handled ‘additional queries’ from HKEX.
However, if you’ll take my recommendation, the best read of today is the 'The Future of America’s contest with China’, a thorough review of the history of modern US-China relations and their future by American journalist and author Evan Osnos in the New Yorker. It’s a long one! About 11,000 words. Audio podcast also available.
Have a good day!
