Baidu is one of chkina's other epicenters of ai

part of its focus n latest annual rport oct 2017:

 Baidu is working to develop AI-based platforms in the voice assist and autonomous driving markets. The company continues to work on DuerOS, as they think that “voice and natural language interface will become the future universal gateway to the digital world”. They also don’t see these projects as something that will bear fruits in many years. Baidu’s management sees a huge opportunity in this market and mentions some forecasts by IDC, which expects that 27% of homes and 51% of cars will be voice-powered by 2020.
The management also gave us an update on the overall state of their projects in autonomous driving, mentioning a significant growth in the number of partners in the ecosystem:
Apollo 1.5 has been very positively received by our partners and developers. Overall, in Q3, the number of Apollo ecosystem partners has grown from 54 to 74 with more OEMs, component and solution providers as well as startups joining the Apollo ecosystem. We reached strategic agreements with OEMs such BAIC Group; King Long, one of China's largest bus manufacturers and Chery and Jianghuai for commercial L3 productions in 2018 for buses and 2019 for cars as well as L4 production by 2021.
