WeChat to deploy AI tools in education in push into industrial internet

Tencent Holdings is pushing ahead with efforts to sign up schools to use its all-in-one WeChat app as part of a broader shift by the company to go beyond consumers and serve more institutions.

“WeChat Pay has been a tool to connect people, and is now increasingly connecting industries under the company’s new direction to embrace the industrial internet.” Lei Maofeng, vice-general manager of WeChat Pay, said in an interview at the Fortune Global Tech Forum 2018 in Guangzhou.

Education is among the industries that WeChat is tapping to deploy artificial intelligence tools, with voice and image recognition the most commonly used technology, Lei said.
