Chen will discuss the next generation of Alibaba AI Labs innovation on Thursday, June 14. At CES 2018 in Las Vegas, Alibaba AI Labs, together with MTK and SIG, announced in a joint statement that they would cooperate in developing a Bluetooth mesh module. The AI service platform from Alibaba AI Labs already supports advanced voice and image recognition, as well as increasingly evolving multi-mode recognition, and the company is now considering how to provide these services to partners. In her keynote presentation, Chen will announce its future strategies.

“Alibaba AI Labs and Byton are global brands that embody the innovative and entrepreneurial spirit of our industry,” said Karen Chupka, executive VP, CES. “These industry visionaries have taken their respective companies to new heights through their leadership, creativity and passion for innovation. They are driving the expansion of technology into new areas like smart cities, artificial intelligence, machine learning and more, which is what CES Asia is all about. We are all very excited for them to take this international stage.”

All keynotes will be located in the Kerry Hotel, Shanghai Ballroom 2-3; additional keynotes will be announced in the coming weeks.

It is expected to draw more than 40,000 attendees — including over 1,200 media members — and around 500 companies.
