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.
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.
