China Money Network, a Chinese investment and technology media and data company based in Hong Kong and Beijing, today launched a campaign to compile a list of the 50 leading Chinese artificial intelligence companies to shed light on China’s rising AI power.
Called the China AI Top 50, the list will be released at the World Economic Forum 2018 Annual Meeting of the New Champions in Tianjin city, China on September 18 to 20, in front of top-level government officials, influential business leaders and international media organizations.
"China Money Network tracks China’s technology and venture capital industry daily, providing intelligence and data to our international audience on what may soon be the world’s center of venture capital and technology development," says Nina Xiang, founder of China Money Network. "Despite the growth, there is a lack of solid research and data on the most important tech sectors in China. We will fill that knowledge gap by visiting all of these companies’ offices and factories, talking to their founders and staff members, as well as mining our own proprietary data accumulated over the years on this industry."
Therefore, China Money Network invites all Chinese artificial intelligence companies to participate in an exclusive online survey to be shortlisted for this esteemed list.

The deadline to complete the online survey is July 12, 2018.
"Companies will be measured based on factors including their core technology, R&D capabilities, business fundamentals, team strength and business prospects. The China Money Network Research team will then conduct follow-up meetings and interviews to verify facts and gain additional insights from management teams," said Naveet McMahon, co-founder and managing partner of China Money Network. "I have no doubt that China AI Top 50 will become the who’s who listing for 2018 on the most valuable sector in the world’s second largest economy."
