Chinese tech company Huawei launched Singapore’s first 5G powered Artificial Intelligence (AI) lab last Friday. The company said that it will allow companies, schools and Singapore Government agencies access to the facility to test how 5G applications will work.
Huawei International chief executive Nicholas Ma said that the company also hopes to address an AI tech talent crunch here with some of the memorandum of understandings (MOUs) signed last Friday.
