Google is on the move in China. In December 2017, Google established the AI China Center in Beijing, led by Fei-fei Li, chief scientist of Google Cloud, and Jia Li, the head of research and development in AI and ML. In mid-January, Google confirmed the news it would set up an office in Shenzhen.
Google is not sitting idle while China’s IT giants increase their investments in the AI sector. At the media event held in Tokyo, Jeff Dean, the director of Google Brain, said the company is establishing its AI team in China, and is mainly recruiting in Beijing and Shanghai.
