ALIBABA ACQUIRES SOUTH ASIA E-COMMERCE PLATFORM DARAZ

Alibaba Group has acquired South Asia’s largest e-commerce platform, Daraz Group said Tuesday.
The purchase, for an undisclosed sum, will make Daraz a wholly owned unit of Alibaba, which is China’s biggest e-commerce provider and operator of the popular Taobao and Tmall platforms.
For Alibaba, the acquisition spreads its e-commerce reach further outside of China. It recently topped up its investment in Lazada, giving it control of the well-known Southeast Asian online shopping platform.
“We are excited for Daraz to become a part of the Alibaba ecosystem,” said Alibaba CEO Daniel Zhang. “Together with Daraz, we can now empower entrepreneurs to better serve consumers in the region through our technology and expertise.”
Zhang said the Daraz team is a natural fit, sharing Alibaba’s values and beliefs that long-term economic development in the region will depend on a technology-enabled commerce ecosystem.
Daraz was founded in 2012 and has grown into a leading e-commerce company in Pakistan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Myanmar and Nepal. It has 30,000 sellers and 500 brands on its platform, with 2 million products available to its 5 million customers. Daraz product offerings stretch across consumer electronics, household goods, beauty, fashion, sports equipment and groceries. It also offers multiple payment options, including cash-on-delivery.
“Together with Alibaba, we are ready to empower entrepreneurs in the region and to fulfill our promise to offer our customers the best selection of products with a high-level of convenience,” said Daraz Co-CEO Jonathan Doerr.
Daraz said its acquisition by Alibaba would help drive further growth in its key markets, home to 460 million people, 60% of them under the age of 35.
“With hard work and dedication, we have started the e-commerce journey in our markets, but we have still only scratched the surface of the potential,” said Daraz Co-CEO Bjarke Mikkelsen.
Daraz will continue to operate under its brand name after the transaction

At its annual Build conference today, Microsoft is pitching an AI strategy that's different from its competitors': While companies like Google and Facebook race to invent their own server chips customized for machine learning, and build the AI projects to run on top of them, Microsoft thinks this could prevent them from moving as fast as they will need to.
Microsoft, on the other hand, has a plan to run AI programs on chips called FPGAs (Field-Programmable Gate Array). These chips are designed to be reprogrammed as new forms of software develop. Microsoft’s FPGA-powered cloud service for image-recognition projects is already being put to interesting use: Nestle’s health care division will use it to analyze patients’ photos to diagnose the severity of their acne—and recommend and monitor the appropriate treatment. And because of their FPGAs, Microsoft says customers like Nestle can process a million images for 21 cents at the blistering speed of 1.8 millisecond per image. They claim that's better than any competing cloud service can offer, though that claim has yet to be tested. “Some companies are already buying into Microsoft’s vision,” writes senior business reporter Tom Simonite. “Microsoft will suggest companies with big AI ambitions should steer clear of chips like Google’s. It says machine learning is evolving so fast that it doesn’t make sense to burn today’s ideas permanently into silicon chips that could soon prove limiting or obsolete.”

On 26 March 2018, the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) and Alibaba Business School enrolled the first class of 37 Asian entrepreneurs for the eFounders Initiative at an opening ceremony held on the Alibaba campus in Hangzhou, China.
The 11-day course is part of a commitment by Jack Ma, Alibaba Group’s founder and Executive Chairman and UNCTAD Special Adviser, to empower 1,000 entrepreneurs from developing countries in five years.
Following a rigorous selection process, the final candidates from Cambodia, Indonesia, Malaysia, Pakistan, the Philippines, Thailand and Vietnam will embark on an 11-day intensive course providing first-hand exposure to e-commerce innovations from China and around the world and become eFounders Fellows. The idea is to empower these young entrepreneurs to become catalysts in their home country with the potential to spur the digital transformation of their economies.
The launch of the first program for Asian entrepreneurs comes after the success of the inaugural class for 24 African participants last November.
Smart partnerships
“We want to reach out to youth and include them in the work we do for inclusive and sustainable economic growth,” said Arlette Verploegh, Coordinator for the eFounders Initiative at UNCTAD. “The initiative is about bridging the digital divide for young entrepreneurs and unlocking their potential. It is part of a set of smart partnerships UNCTAD is creating to reach the sustainable development goals.”
All participants are founders of their respective start-up companies, ranging from e-commerce, big data, logistics, fintech, payment and tourism.
“We are excited to extend this fellowship to entrepreneurs from Asia for the very first time as part of our commitment to empower digital champions and communities around the world,” said Brian A. Wong, Vice President of Alibaba Group, who heads the Global Initiatives program.
“Our goal is to inspire entrepreneurs to serve as pioneers for building a more inclusive development model that is not just good for their business, but also good for society by creating platforms that all can participate in and benefit from.”
Under the auspices of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, the initiative is aligned with the wider call to action to ensure that no one is left behind in the digital economy, and to help bridge the digital divide faced by businesses in emerging markets.
Jointly organized by UNCTAD and Alibaba Business School, the eFounders Initiative also supports Alibaba’s mission to help small businesses succeed in their home markets and beyond. It was first announced in 2017 by Jack Ma in his capacity as the UNCTAD Special Adviser for Young Entrepreneurs and Small Business when he, together with Dr. Mukhisa Kituyi, Secretary-General of UNCTAD, visited Africa.
E-commerce ecosystems
The participants of the eFounders Initiative will learn first-hand the transformative impact e-commerce and technology have on society in China and participate in lectures and discussions with local practitioners and executives to identify the lessons that can be applied to their own markets. Topics covered will include e-commerce, payment, logistics, big data and tourism from Alibaba Group and other successful companies in the e-commerce value chain, with sessions touching on digital finance, smart logistics and rural e-commerce development, among others.
Upon graduation, participants will officially become Fellows of the eFounders Initiative and make formal commitments on how they will apply the learning from this program, checking in with UNCTAD and Alibaba every three months. UNCTAD and Alibaba Group will also continue to advise on and provide support for the creation of e-commerce ecosystems jointly with other stakeholders.
Great leaders are humble, work with people smarter than they are and always strive to empower others, Jack Ma said Tuesday.
The leadership tips were among the wisdom the Alibaba Group founder and Executive Chairman Jack Ma dispensed to a group of 37 young entrepreneurs from Southeast Asia and South Asia, along with the tale of his own scrappy entrepreneurial journey.
“When you make a mistake, calm down and think it through how you can make the mistake to be beneficial for tomorrow,” said Ma, who started what’s now a half-trillion-dollar company 19 years ago from his Hangzhou apartment with 17 other likeminded friends.
The hour-long discussion with Ma was the grand finale of a 11-day eFounders Fellowship program jointly organized by the Alibaba Business School and the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD). Ma was appointed as a Special Advisor to UNCTAD in September 2016. Since then, the 53-year old magnate and philanthropist has spoken to thousands of young people around the world.
The goal of the training, said Brian Wong, a vice-president of Alibaba Group and the head of Alibaba’s Global Initiatives, is to empower the world’s young business leaders to be the architects of their home economies by leveraging technology and analytics. Moreover, these entrepreneurs will bring their newfound skills and knowledge back to enable their peers and communities to rise together.
Hailing from seven Asian countries—Vietnam, Indonesia, Pakistan, Malaysia, Thailand, Cambodia and the Philippines—the eFounders were selected from a pool of hundreds of applicants for their outstanding records in their respective fields, which include mobile payment, tourism, big data, fintech, logistics and e-commerce. They are all either founder or co-founder of a platform-based venture in one of the five fields.
“We see them as the agents of change and the catalysts who will transform their country into a technology-driven economy in this digital era,” Wong said.
Since its founding, Alibaba has become one of the world’s largest e-commerce platforms and internet companies, with an annual active user base of 515 million people. As Alibaba has grown, so has China’s web-based commerce. Last year, China’s e-commerce transaction value jumped 32% year-on-year to RMB 7.18 trillion ($1.15 trillion), according to China’s National Bureau of Statistics. Goldman Sachs projects the market will grow to $1.7 trillion by 2020.
China’s development and experience can serve as a mirror for many countries that want to make the jump into the digital economy, said Wong.
Industry watchers say even though Southeast Asia is largely still developing, the region of 650 million people is primed for sharp growth, thanks to its fast adaptability to the internet and technology. Currently, only about 3% of the region’s retail is done online, but a report by Google and Singapore state investment vehicle Temasek projects it could hit $200 billion by 2025.
“The internet is a great technology that can help young people and small businesses. It is especially good for developing countries,” said Ma, adding that with enough support for young entrepreneurs and innovations, “what happened in China in the past 19 years can also happen in other countries.”
He emphasized the deficiencies that Asia experiences today in areas such as technology, banking and retail are golden opportunities that will help the region excel in these areas in the coming years to be the leader of the “third technology revolution,” enabling it to surpass Europe and the U.S.
For SyPhong Bu, the founder of a Hanoi-based fintech company OnOnPay, the Alibaba founder’s message of collective growth spoke to him loud and clear.
He said OnOnPay now takes a small cut from each transaction when the customer uses his company’s e-wallet platform. However, this means store owners reap little benefit from promoting cashless transaction.
After lectures from Alibaba executives and other trainers and site visits to a Taobao villageHema and partners in the Alibaba’s ecosystem, he said he realizes the most-effective and sustainable way forward is for OnOnPay to find ways to boost the store’s own revenue. That creates a formula for a mutually beneficial and sustainable relationship, he said.
Information-sharing was a key takeaway for Francesca Chia from Malaysia. By being at the nerve center of Alibaba, she witnessed how the company is able to use analytics to empower its partners, letting the entire ecosystem flourish.
“To me, this speaks to how much we can do if my team can create a better system that takes information to empower others to make better decisions, then feeds it back to the system. By doing so, we can make the entire engine smarter,” said Chia.
This is the second eFounders Fellowship training program offered by Alibaba Business School and UNCTAD. In November last year, a group of entrepreneurs with Africa-based ventures also underwent the similar training. Organizers said they plan to extend the program for people from other regions in the near future.

massive coopertion interstate and multi-stakeholder needed  (baltic people chains go back to 1989 in freeing region from old Russia- now happy to help russian fuuire dtreams) both russians and estonians (freed since 1991) valiue education above all

fakenews everywhere and recent debacles at facebook in particular show that tech giants need to join in to

its worth noting that a lot of russian cyberattachers (see eg ukraine attack of utilities june 2017) are protestinbg against their government as well as worldwide governments and exploiting lack of cooperation between governments ; worth noting that so far north korea may have done most harm to citizens outside its borders with cyberattacks eg wannacry

hence very intersting that new development banking is sponsoring benchmark investment in russian cyber security

TOP TECH TRENDS TO WATCH IN 2018 FROM ALIBABA SCIENTISTS

February 6, 2018

ALIBABA, TSINGHUA TO ADVANCE HUMAN-COMPUTER INTERACTION

Alibaba is teaming up with one of China’s top universities to research and develop human-computer interaction technologies, an important area of study as user interfaces expand in form and sophistication beyond the keyboard and touchscreen.
The Chinese e-commerce giant and Tsinghua University, in Beijing, will launch a joint laboratory focusing on HCI research to study the ways in which computers could read human emotions and interpret mannerisms, and even simulate those human characteristics on their own. The goal is to bring the next generation of HCI interfaces to the market.
“As artificial intelligence and data technologies advance, humans’ senses and emotions would be further digitalized and become the new modes of interaction with machines,” Alibaba Group Chief Technology Officer Jeff Zhang said.
The new venture is the first HCI-focused lab unveiled by Alibaba since the company launched its global research institute, DAMO Academy, last October. The $15 billion DAMO initiative, in which HCI was listed as a key research area, is an important part of company’s efforts to broaden its technology portfolio beyond e-commerce.
The joint lab will bring together experts from both sides in cognitive science, linguistics, physiology and aesthetics, while its operations and research directions will be led by the director of The Future Lab at Tsinghua University, Xu Yingqing, and Alibaba Group Senior Director of User Experience Paul Fu.

Alibaba Cloud is making its first concerted push into Turkey through a partnership with Istanbul-based B2B services provider e-Glober, the company said Monday.
e-Glober, which is already Turkey’s sole authorized agent and business partner of global wholesale platform Alibaba.com, will now deliver Alibaba Cloud’s suite of services to the exporters, small and medium-sized businesses and other local companies it works with in this emerging but important economy in the Middle East.

JACK MA OFFERS EXECUTIVE EDUCATION TO ASIAN EFOUNDERS

Great leaders are humble, work with people smarter than they are and always strive to empower others, Jack Ma said Tuesday.

Tsinghua University
Alibaba Group CTO Jeff Zhang and Professor Bin Yang, vice president of Tsinghua University, attend launch in Beijing.
With terms such as “affective computing” and “multimodal perception and interaction,” HCI may seem impenetrable to the layman. But the science offers some highly useful real-world applications, including vehicle cockpits that emphasize touch stimulation for safer driving, as studies have shown that drivers’ reaction to touch is faster than visual signals. There is also the potential to base product design on the digital analysis of consumers’ reactions to those products.
“By making machines better understand and communicate with humans, HCI is expected to revolutionize various industries and make profound impacts on how we work and live,” said Professor Bin Yang, vice president of Tsinghua University.
Alibaba is no stranger to “combining the senses” to improve the user experience. In December, the company developed voice-recognition ticket kiosks for the Shanghai Metro, which could pick up sound from a user several meters away, even in noisy environments. The technology combines audio signal-processing and computer-vision technology to better identify sound sources.
