Atlas China Top 8

January 25 · Issue #4 · View online
China + global technology, business, and innovation trends, 8 items at a time.

Big week - there’s never been a more exciting time to be a China watcher. At least until next week … Welcome to the Shared Future. 
-HAX & SOSV Partner Benjamin Joffe shares observations from CES 2018. The future: “China is there, but doesn’t look Chinese.” Think Musical.ly.  
-Terrific comprehensive overview of the Belt and Road Initiative and its implications for multinationals from PwC China and Singapore. 
-Interesting to look back and define a “Sputnik moment” for China, in artificial intelligence, when AlphaGo defeated Lee Sedol in Go in 2016. 
-Alibaba has the fastest-growing cloud computing infrastructure in the world. The Economist on the prospects for its internationalization
-Washington Post weighs in on China’s breathtaking transformation into a scientific superpower: “We should have expected nothing less.” 
-Contrast with this in HBR from as recently(?) as 2014: Why China Can’t Innovate. Some saw it coming earlier than others: Michael Moritz in 2014.
-Moritz is back in the news after a controversial FT article about China vs. Silicon Valley. An “unhinged freakout” or ahead of the curve again? U.S. entrepreneur Leslie Voorhees writes compellingly in support of his view.
Thanks to everyone who joined for happy hour in Beijing last night. If you have any comments/feedback/know great salespeople, email me.
