Nasi Lemak Talk - China: The Inevitable Deep Tech Superpower
MAYCHAM is pleased to announce the return of the Nasi Lemak Talk. In this upcoming series, we had the opportunity to invite Dr. Lee Kai-Fu, Chairman and CEO of Sinovation Ventures and President of Sinovation Venture's Artificial Intelligence Institute, Time 100 in 2013, WIRED 25 Icons and Asian Business Leader 2018 by Asia House to share how he invested in AI and helped create ten AI unicorns, and how this new deep tech tidal wave will create much bigger investment opportunities.
In 2017, Dr. Lee wrote the seminal book AI Superpowers in which he predicted China's rise to become an AI superpower. At that time, this prediction was met with skepticism from the Silicon Valley, but today his book proves to be prescient.
Now, in 2022, Dr. Lee's new book AI 2041 further predicts that a set of advanced technologies will usher in the greatest technological revolution ever. In this talk, Dr. Lee will predict that in the next 5 to 10 years, China will also become a global leader not just in AI, but also robotics, industrial automation, semiconductor chip design, new energy, synthetic biology, drug discovery, multi-omics, and quantum computing. This is inevitable because China has a growing number of top technologists, a strong entrepreneurial ecosystem, a huge market (and data), and unprecedented government support and policies.
Bookazine will be selling Dr. Lee's book, AI 2041 Ten Visions of the Future at the event.
