Will Knight — China’s AI Awakening – 中国 人工智能 的崛起

Qing Luan, director of SenseTime’s augmented-reality group, previously developed office apps for Microsoft in Redmond, Washington. She says she returned to China because the opportunities just seemed much bigger. “We were struggling to get a thousand users; then I talked with my friend who was working at a startup in China, and she said, ‘Oh, a million users is nothing—we get that in several days,’” she recalls.
This is the key point about everything involving China. It's yuuu...ge!

The numbers are mind boggling even though the US has an impressive population of over 300 million.

And India is not far behind China in joining the developed world. With Indonesia in the wings.

The next few decades look to be transformative, if we don't destroy ourselves first.

The question is whether the planet can handle that kind of growth. Probably not — unless innovation.

The current buzz word in China, direct from the lips of President Xi, is "innovation."
China was leading the world then [in the Shang Dynasty].
And in the future, we will lead again with technological innovations.
