What new directions in China's digital economy mean for us all
China is the largest homogenous digital market on Earth: unified by language, culture, and mobile payments. Not only a consumer market of unrivaled size, it's also a vast and hyperactive innovation ecosystem for new technologies. And as China's digital economy moves from a consumer-focused phase to an enterprise-oriented one, Chinese companies are rushing to capitalize on ways the newer wave of tech--the Internet of Things, AI, blockchain, cloud computing, and data analytics (iABCD)--can unlock value for their businesses from non-traditional angles.
In China's Data Economy, Winston Ma--investment professional, capital markets attorney, adjunct professor of digital economy, and bestselling author--details the profound global implications of this new direction, including how Chinese apps for services such as food delivery expand so quickly they surpass their U.S. models within a couple of years, and how the sheer scale and pace of Chinese innovation might lead to an AI arms race in which China and the U.S. vie aggressively for leadership.
Anyone interested in what's next for Chinese digital powerhouses--investors, governments, entrepreneurs, international business players--will find this an essential guide to what lies ahead as China's flexes new digital muscles to create new forms of value and challenge established tech giants across the world.
