The US-China over artificial intelligence is heating up, but some warn the US could be over-reacting. "China is betting on AI and investing in AI and deploying AI on a scale no other country is doing," says Abishur Prakash, a futurist and author of books about the effect of artificial intelligence (AI) on geopolitics.

The Vietnamese team is well aware of how important the next game is, given that Thailand has always been a big and long-standing rival, coach Park Hang-seo said at a press briefing in Hanoi Monday. "The players understand the anticipation of the fans. I can see in their eyes the determination to win. I’m just afraid that they will be stressed when they meet the Thai team in the field and I really do not want that to happen. "Therefore I don’t want to create any more pressure for them and want to focus on making the best preparation possible for the game," he said. Vietnam will meet Thailand in Hanoi at 8 p.m. Tuesday in the second round of their 2022 World Cup qualifier matches in Group G.
