In entertainment news this week we discuss the Star Wars: Rise of Skywalker and the end of the Mandalorian show on Disney+. In tech news this week we go over our thoughts on the recent articles declaring China as the leader in surveillance and AI technology. Tesla opens its gigafactory in China and a US hacker gets out of prison and is now teaching in China. The Pentagon warns servicemembers of their privacy concerns relating to commercial DNA testing kits. We also cover the recent news behind both international and US autonomous driving trucks.
