U.S. frustrations grow over China trade talks China’s vice premier, Liu He, is scheduled to hold face-to-face trade talks in Washington today, before attending a meeting with President Trump in the Oval Office.

Machine learning and neural networks have never been sexier. The top experts in artificial intelligence are speaking before thousands, signing book deals and attracting gobs of money. The sector is moving from tech niche to center stage stardom. Take for example Kai-Fu Lee, the noted investor, former president of Google China and AI researcher.

Young men and women in business attire flocked to him. Investors sought introductions. Even school children asked for autographs. Lee is one of AI’s biggest boosters as well as one of its chief critics. Wherever he speaks- from Silicon Valley to Beijing – he draws big crowds and garners much praise.

In April, the US State Department said it had heard of Uighurs who had “disappeared” or were unexpectedly detained. Meanwhile, Muslim countries have been deafeningly silent.
