China’s New Normal


What is it about?

When we think of technology and innovation we almost naturally end up with American companies such as Google, Apple, Facebook, Tesla or Amazon. That association creates a huge blind spot. As the world is watching what is happening in Silicon Valley, an innovation train in China is racing past us. Baidu, Alibaba and Tencent are now well-known names of fast and furious innovative China, but they are only the tip of the iceberg.


Insights in the book

I will take you along eight industries. For each of them, I reveal how China creates a new normal that often sounds like science fiction to us. Whether covering retail, mobility, production, health or entertainment, China is rapidly innovating and taking a clear lead on the rest of the world. The common theme running through each of the stories is China's lead in the development and implementation of artificial intelligence.
