Robin Li, the founder and chief executive of Chinese search engine Baidu, has made his first ever visit to India. Li is also seeking collaborations with Indian institutes as his company seeks local expertise in areas such as artificial intelligence.
India is home to the second largest Internet user base, accounting for 12% of the users globally. Li delivered the keynote on AI at IIT-Madras on Saturday.
“India is one of the fastest growing smartphone markets in the world, and India is also a very large developing country right next to China,” Li said on Saturday at IIT-Madras. “We’ve seen fast growth for both countries over the past few decades. And, I think, for the next decade, there will be more opportunities for us.”
