Welcome to a new episode of AI Chats, a podcast series produced by the law firm of Haynes Boone and lawyers from its AI and Deep Learning Practice Group to explore the exciting, ever-evolving, and occasionally controversial world of artificial intelligence.
Today, we are joined by Chenyan Wu, Partner at Beijing Elite Group, to discuss the rapid AI growth and the protection of AI innovations in China. In the past decade, China has surged from a low “Value-Added” production hub, to one of the leaders in AI technology. How did China close the gap with world leaders of AI industry in such a short period? What are China’s advantages compared to other countries, for example, in national policy, market size and data collection, and consumer adoption?
