Keyu Jin: What The World Can Learn From Chinese Innovation
The world once looked down on Chinese tech – seeing it as a copycat ecosystem. That was once true; but while the world sneered, China was catching up: China now has the fastest supercomputer in the world, a digital payments market 50 per cent larger than that of the US, and the biggest issuer of new international patents. Seven of the top ten unicorns are Chinese.
Keyu Jin, a professor, London School of Economics, is researching globalisation and the Chinese economy, focusing on bridging western capital and a new breed of fastgrowing Chinese technology companies.
