. I’m trying!
to learn Chinese and planning to visit Beijing again soon. My friends in China keep telling me about the fast-paced, huge developments in all things AI, ML, DL, Blockchain, IoT… Massive VC investments, ultra-competitive startups, amazingly smart founders, solid government support, extreme edge R&D… and 84-hours work weeks, and popular Wechat AI forums at 3am! Meanwhile in the UK and Mainland Europe…zzzzz… zzzzz… Ian (founder of Songkick & Ticketmaster) just posted AI Nationalism, an excellent essay about the AI arms race among China, US and the rest of the world, and its implications. Ian’s sharp, brillliant writing is a must-read.
