Google to Open Artificial Intelligence Research Hub in China

Despiting having all its channels blocked in China, Google has launched its new Artificial Intelligence (AI) research lab in the Asian country - aiming to take advantage of the booming AI market.

The tech giant’s AI Centre will be based in Beijing, where a team of researchers plan to fund and sponsor “conferences and workshops”, as well as work “closely with the vibrant Chinese AI research community”, it says.

Google already has similar facilities in New York, Toronto, London, and Zurich, but says this will be the first such center in Asia. 

Mark Natkin, chief of Beijing-based network firm Marbridge Consulting, told Bloomberg Google’s attempts to create new jobs and train Chinese engineers at the facility would help “build goodwill” with the country.
