Chinese e-commerce giant Alibaba is launching a global research project with ambitious goals – and an Israeli research hub.
The Alibaba Group announced on Wednesday the creation of a global “Academy” dedicated to innovation and technological collaboration. The program – which Alibaba says will see $15 billion in R&D investment over the next three years – includes the creation of seven research laboratories worldwide, including one in Tel Aviv. The Academy will be called DAMO, standing for Discovery, Adventure, Momentum and Outlook. Alibaba is touting the project as a major step toward closing the world’s technology gap.
“The Alibaba DAMO Academy will be at the forefront of developing next-generation technology that will spur the growth of Alibaba and our partners,” said Alibaba CTO Jeff Zhang in a press release. Zhang will be overseeing the Academy, the release said.
“We aim to discover breakthrough technologies that will enable greater efficiency, network security and ecosystem synergy for end-users and businesses everywhere,” Zhang said.
The DAMO Academy research laboratories will be the center of the early development of the project, the company said in the official release. These will include two Chinese centers, in Beijing and Hangzhou, as well as laboratories in Moscow, Singapore and Tel Aviv, and two US laboratories in San Mateo, California, and Bellevue, Washington. The company said that the laboratories will “focus on both foundational and disruptive technology research including data intelligence, Internet of Things (IoT), fintech, quantum computing and human-machine interaction,” with particular attention to machine learning, network security, visual computing and Natural Language Processing.
The project intends to recruit 100 researchers from around the world to work in its hubs.
Founded in 1999 and currently composed of 18 subsidiaries, Alibaba Group Holding Ltd amassed an annual revenue of $22.99 billion in 2016. Its services are focused on ecommerce — B2B, B2C and C2C — and mobile payment. As of September, it registered 446 million shoppers, 529 million monthly mobile users and a million cloud customers. Major subsidiaries include, Aliyun (Alibaba Cloud), Ali Venture Capital and the South China Morning Post.
The company made its first foray into the Israeli startup market in 2015 when it invested in Visualead, a Tel Aviv-based startup specializing in developing “designer” Quick Response codes. Later that year it partnered with Israeli venture capital firm JVP (Jerusalem Venture Partners) to invest in multiple Israeli tech startups. It has also invested in Israeli startups such as Twiggle, Infinity Augmented Reality, Lumus and ThetaRay.
Chinese investment in Israel hit an all-time high in 2016, clocking in at $16.5 billion – largely focused in the web, cybersecurity and medical fields – according to data from the Thomson Reuters foundation. The same data shows a marked trend of Chinese investment shifting from the US to Israel. In 2016 alone Chinese investors canceled $26.3 billion in previously announced deals from the US, largely due to tough screening from the United States’ Committee on Foreign Investment, which screens trade for national security risks, and more recently US President Donald Trump’s aggressive protectionist stance on trade with the People’s Republic of China.
At bilateral meetings this March in Beijing, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu touted Israel as a “perfect junior partner” to China’s economy, and officials agreed to accelerate the establishment of a Free Trade Zone between the two countries.
Alibaba said that the DAMO Academy project will look to engage in partnerships with major figures in technological innovation and top educational institutions to “explore technology breakthroughs aimed at improving the lives of technology end-users and boosting the efficiency and security of enterprises globally.” The press release announced that the Academy project will be collaborating with the University of California, Berkeley-supported RISE Lab on research related to secured real-time computing. The project’s advisory board will include major figures in US and Chinese academia, including Wen Gao, professor and dean of the Faculty of Information and Engineering Sciences at Peking University, Avi Wigderson, professor at the Institute for Advanced Study at Princeton, and George Church of Harvard and MIT.
“Over the past 18 years, we have developed a robust technology infrastructure that supports the rapid growth of our business. With our global expansion, we have grown and refined our technology manifold,” said Zhang.
“We are now looking for talented and driven researchers to join us in the quest for new disruptive technologies that would advance our everyday lives, benefit small businesses and narrow the technology gap to make our world a more inclusive place.”
Along with an existing data science research lab in California, Alibaba has already opened new data centers in Europe, the United States, the Middle East, Australia, Japan, India and Indonesia since 2016, in a bid to boost its cloud business.

The investment also comes as Beijing prioritizes state funding in quantum computing, AI and big data, urging provincial governments, universities, the military and private firms to play a bigger role in developing advanced technology in areas where China trails developed countries.

It is yet unclear when Alibaba will begin to set up its Israeli center. Other international heavyweights, such as Amazon, Ebay, Paypal, Google and Microsoft, have also branched out to include offices in Israel.

Chinese e-commerce giant Alibaba is introducing a new trade platform called Tmall to the Russian market; TASS reported citing its sources.
The service has started working in test mode and should become fully operational from mid-October.
“In Russia Tmall will be launched within the AliExpress platform. In fact, this marks the brand's debut outside China,” one of the sources said.
AliExpress is one of the most popular online shops in Russia with an estimated 15.6 million customers each month.
According to the people familiar with the matter, Tmall will operate in Russia as a separate online shop and a marketplace (or e-platform), uniting an unlimited number of sellers.
Goods will be delivered from the warehouses of Alibaba's partners in Russia, and not from Chinese storage facilities (cross-border trade), as with AliExpress.
"We started localizing AliExpress in Russia two years ago, launching the marketplace ‘Mall’ within the platform. The upgrade to Tmall means a better quality of services due to a more careful selection of goods, a single warehouse, and logistics based on courier delivery, along with delivery to special points of issue,” said Director of Development of AliExpress in Russia and CIS Mark Zavadsky.
He added that Tmall will offer all kinds of goods, ranging from electronics and household appliances to clothing and children's goods. Russian and international brands, as well as some favorite Chinese brands in Russia, will be available to customers.

this is a great mail spencer thanks- 

of the few real-time change world dynamics i study diary complexity is number 1- tell me if you are ever travelling up to new york and i will try and get john kiehl to see you-  in effect his media studio in broadway   is the greatest unknown youth hub of all - amy for example makes it her home hub whenever she feels free of other burdens; the timeline of 1776 comes to brooklyn may be supercity new york's greatest chance to  be on par with berkeleley and mit in terms of  linking in coders of sustainable youth

 i think i am correct in saying that the worldwide friendships amy tries to link the future of  chinese women to depend on informally and joyfully coinvenng the club that coders and their projects most want to be in if they regenerate community   or green or leapfrog missing infrastructure - john also sponsored a 5 day open space on MIT his alma mater on forming such a club -apart from the beauty and the beast if ever there was a 25 yera  old younger female jack MA it  would be AMy -the future of china should be so lucky   - the leapfrogging of education is sustainability ctritical -that depends on Amy and the Abed family understanding global youth in time to linkin jack ma or andrew ng or the quadir brothers (MIT and dubai'sdesign group of all the world's largest cashless bannks for the poor) or the other bangladesh-american sal khan -then supercoders global youth club will never look back

anyhow sam or amy will doubtless correct me if i have misunderstood her  all star youth tv production potential; i expect frances couild equally be africas good news tv anchor though i have 80 journalist friends in paris who think they already do that Africa24 | La première chaîne mondiale d'information pour l'Afrique   -go to Your Top Engagement Opportunities Directory - Find Your Top Engagement Opportunities and when it asks you what you want choose all star youth and the program yourself to be in  that if you choose

sadly november 2015 was when ted turner cnn family were going to reeherase which of 15000 african amerucan students made the best green, rights and peace and social business news caster to  link in atlanta with rome and jim kim and everyone valuing youth but then the 100 historically black university presidents and muhammad yunus quarreled over  who was top dog and as always youth's future was the greatest loser, and real community heroes like rosa parks lawyer were left legless to youth

Admired Colleagues of Chris,

Chris, first and foremost, thank you for thinking of me, it is always a pleasure to see your name pop up in my inbox.

Chris is on point; the company I serve, The Community Company, is developing a community building tool called Loop. We work out of the 1776 Crystal City Campus and would be happy to host anyone who would like to learn more. I've attached a brief summary of our company (there are pictures, I promise).

My cell phone number is 202.386.0769 feel free to call me anytime. My schedule has become increasingly complex and I've found phone calls to be the most conducive communication method given my time constraints.

Cheers to all,

Spencer Michael Deese

Dear John kiehl

Thought of you friday as spencer was presenting loop to sam and me at 1776  incubator (a co-work space where 50 coding teams are developing projects)

I think spencers project connects with your 5 day festival at MIT on where are the coders of anything but big is better. Loop aims to revitalise trade to local stores at whole community levels

However it is also above my paygrade as its next stage needs a heavy slug of coding

Also 1776 is coming to brookyn navy yard so maybe the relationships we built with black brooklyn youth wont be entirely lost. In fact i am pretty sure baltimore has innovated a missing piece that all supercity development needs black youth to co-share

global youth friends and i would like to help develop an educators summit on the future of girls attended by as many of sir fazle's top supportsrs as possible and within 24 hours girls hackathon

given the roots of my family - and how closely adam smith's systems purpose fits sir fazle's - the easiest place to host such an event is glasgow univeristy sir fazle's alma mater,

 but unless that fits sir fazle's diary ;later this year , it would be great to know where his other favorite places for such an event might be during the next 12 months or so

maybe i am biassed but my family's diaries show that wherever communities start losing sustainability, girls are the greatest losers
