A lecture by Shan Huang, Beijing-based deputy managing editor and an editorial board member of Caixin Media. What is the state of Chinese homegrown tech sector and to what extent does China’s indigenous innovation challenge US dominance? Opinions vary widely on where the Chinese tech sector falls within the global pecking order. On one hand, Chinese- developed smartphone apps and advances in artificial intelligence have helped bring about a cashless society. On the other, the near collapse of ZTE, one of China’s major telecom equipment makers and the fourth largest mobile phone vendor in the US, has served as a wake-up call and shown how reliant the tech giant is on American technologies and products.
