U.S. government limits exports of artificial intelligence software (Reuters)

"The Trump administration took measures to crimp exports of artificial intelligence software as part of a bid to keep sensitive technologies out of the hands of rival powers like China. Under a new rule, companies that export certain types of geospatial imagery software from the US must apply for a license to send it overseas."

#Comment: Does this mean no more Tensorflow and Pytorch in China (and in a rapidly growing list of countries the US empire does no like)? How do they define "AI"? Truly comedic move, just as open-access science is becoming the norm in EU & China.
