China critic Ai Weiwei on how the Web will bring freedom and why China can’t design an iPhone

China critic Ai Weiwei on how the Web will bring freedom and why China can’t design an iPhone | An Eye on New Media | Scoop.it

It’s easy to forget that Ai Weiwei is an artist, at times. The man who is so often (and rightly) described as ‘outspoken’ and a ‘dissident’ is one of the most vocal critics of the Chinese regime, particularly on the subject of Internet censorship, to the point that it tends to overshadow his work.

Ai, who famously designed the Beijing ‘Birds Nest’ Olympic stadium, something he now regrets, discusses the Chinese government and its attitude to technology and the Web in a new op-ed published by The Guardian.

In the article, that is also available in Chinese, Ai looks at the affect that the Great Firewall censorship has had on China. An avid user of Twitter — @awiwi – he pens an argument that, in the long term, China’s can’t keep the power of the Internet at bay forever.

'Chinese Google' Opens Artificial-Intelligence Lab in Silicon Valley

'Chinese Google' Opens Artificial-Intelligence Lab in Silicon Valley | An Eye on New Media | Scoop.it

China's Baidu has set up shop in Silicone Valley.  How do you feel?  I'd like to hear your opinions with a comment.

Ken Morrison's insight:

Ken's Key Takeaway:

China's Baidu ("Chinese Google") is dedicated to deep learning.  They have set up an office near Apple to attract top minds and programmers.  The tech war continues.  Remember that a big part of the tech war is the 2Ps...Pattents and Programmers. So large research labs like this in a location where tech programmers want to live can be seen as a bold move.
