Alibaba Cloud Launches 1.0 Version of PaaS for Cloud Gaming, Taking On Tencent

At the 2020 Yunqi conference, Alibaba Cloud released its first Cloud platform for developers, the model for which focuses on helping businesses, instead of delivering services to gamers.  Cloud gaming has been given high expectations in recent months as 5G and cloud gaming technologies are evolving. Tencent, China Mobile (CHL:NYSE) and NetEase (NTES:NASDAQ) all rolled out their ready-to-play cloud gaming services. As a competitor of Tencent (00700:SEHK), Alibaba's (BABA:NASDAQ, 09988:HKEX) attitude towards gaming has been blurring. Jack Ma once said they would starve rather than join in the gaming business. He later expressed in 2010 that ''gaming cannot change China, we won't invest a single coin in gaming and this is our principle.'' But the fact is that in 2014, Alibaba launched their mobile gaming platform, targeting game distribution, in which the giant was willing to deliver 70% of total return to game content providers, with 10% of return going to charity. During seven years of developing gaming products, Alibaba initially took over some companies to enter the market. It used traffic to establish channels for distributing games. As traditional distribution fell back, It has to serve as a content agency and issuer and even further developed games. However, there was no significant success in the gaming business, as reflected by the infancy of the revenue figures. Until 2020, Alibaba first tasted the sweetness of some progress on the gaming business: its Sanguo Zhi Strategic Edition currently ranks number 3 in the Chinese Apple application store. The No.1 and No.2 games are Tencent's Honor of Kings and PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds, respectively.

AD Car and AI Assistant Unveiled at Baidu World Conference 2020

The 'Intelligence of Everything-Baidu World 2020' conference organized by Baidu and CCTV News opened a live broadcast on September 15, 2020. CCTV news anchor Bao Xiaofeng and Baidu Group's general manager of the intelligent driving group, Li Zhenyu, experienced the fully driverless Robotaxi together in Beijing Shougang Park. During the conference, Baidu Driverless System Apollo's first appearance of its '5G Cloud Drive' was also a highlight. Based on new infrastructure facilities such as 5G, smart transportation, and V2X, it can make up new transformations for driverless systems. As this 'AI driver' has been able to cope with most road conditions, the extreme scenarios are not very likely to happen. Unlike ordinary safety officers, a cloud driver – who manually monitors cars' safety and makes reactions – can serve many vehicles at the same time.  Besides demonstrating the new changes in autonomous driving cars, the conference also released an innovative searching product, 'Du Xiaoxiao.' According to Shen Dou, Executive Vice President of Baidu Group, Du Xiaoxiao is a developmental virtual assistant app, but very different from the past voice assistants that "only have voice capabilities but cannot be seen." Relying on AI ​​technology capabilities accumulated over 20 years of searching engine experience, Baidu has already made many experienced attempts. Baidu's core brain technology also drives Du Xiaoxiao's development, and its bottom layer adopts Xiaodu Assistant's conversational artificial intelligence operating system. Based on Baidu's mobile ecology centered on information and knowledge, Du Xiaoxiao can quickly process the knowledge users have recorded and return with accurate services afterward. Through more interaction with users, Du Xiaoxiao can also learn and mimic human thinking, complete self-evolution, and grow together with its users.
