Of the countries in Asia-Pacific, China is taking the lead in artificial intelligence (AI) research. It’s even eclipsing the US on an international level, according to Melanie Cook, head of strategy and business consultancy for Southeast Asia at digital consultancy SapientRazorfish. eMarketer’s David Green spoke with Cook about the growing importance of AI for businesses in the region and how China pulled ahead of the pack.
