Google has officially announced that they are introducing an Artificial Intelligence center in China. It has unveiled by Fei-Fei Li, she is working on a Google Cloud’s Chief Scientist, at the Google Developer Days program in Shanghai; this is the Google’s first lab in an Asian country.
Chinese representatives have stated strong backing for Artificial Intelligence research and development in the Asian country, but they have forced ever more strict rules on foreign companies in the past year, with new censorship limitations.
China’s cyber regulators say limitations on foreign media and internet platforms are designed to block powers that break stability and communist ideas.
This year Google held a Go event in a teamwork with local experts in eastern Asia, pitching its Artificial Intelligence against Chinese world champion Go player Ke Jie. This event was much publicized foreign but local media was not interested.
Before this month, Google’s CEO, Sundar Pichai, made an arrival at a session run by the Cyberspace Administration of China, the nation’s top cyber regulator, where he directed away from marketplace access issues to talk over the possibilities of Artificial Intelligent.
Google said the upcoming Chinese Artificial Intelligence research center will join a list of similar foreign centers functioning in London, Zurich, Toronto, and New York.
