“The rising shift to the B2B (business-to-business) market is a ‘win-win-win’ especially in China, for government, internet giants, as well as startup companies,” François Candelon, senior partner of Boston Consulting Group (BCG) said Thursday at the Emerge by TechNode conference in Shanghai.Central and local governments want to digitize Chinese industries rapidly, Candelon explained, since some of industries have already been left behind.Only 25% of Chinese manufacturers have smart-factory initiatives, compared with 46% in Germany and 54% in the US, according to a joint study by BCG, Alibaba, and Baidu.Tencent announced it was restructuring to focus on enterprises, upping efforts in cloud and data solutions in late 2018, while Alibaba seeks to digitize local businesses with a service package of 11 different elements under its A100 program.Candelon was joined by Michael Norris, a consultant from AgencyChina, Jason Li, a digital specialist from Branch Metrics, Jesse Zhang, a product manager of Black Lake, and Daisy Guo, CMO of Tezign, to discuss the growing B2B shift.Beijing further lowered the 2019 forecast to between 6% and 6.5% as the trade war with the US grinds on.
With a population of around 1.4 billion people, everyone wants a piece of the Chinese market.And as Chinese consumers become increasingly connected in cyberspace, digital marketing provides a shortcut for businesses and brands to that opportunity, provided, that is, marketers select online channels wisely.Speaking at the Emerge by TechNode conference in Shanghai on Thursday, CMO of key opinion leader (KOL) marketing platform PARKLU Elijah Whaley told delegates that while Chinese social, content and commerce platforms offer similar functionalities, there is a key differentiating factor—user purpose or intent.The question, according to Whaley is, “Why am I walking into this app or what am I explicitly getting out of from interacting with the ecosystem?”The seamless ubiquity of WeChat makes it the go-to place for online marketing, but the platform is particularly good for CRM, and as a place for conversation given its core function in messaging friends, families, and coworkers.“We see a lot of partners really wanted WeChat to be a marketing platform,” he said.
Increased focus should be placed on democratizing artificial intelligence (AI) so that the technology’s capabilities aren’t solely available to big corporations, according to a director at Microsoft Research Asia (MSRA).“It will be very difficult for a taxi driver to change his or her job to be a computer scientist in their lifetime,” said Pan.The country is pushing to become a global leader in the technology by 2030, while increasing its focus on high-tech industries, including chipmaking, through its Made in China 2025 initiative.Pan said governments should play an active role in mitigating these risks by, for instance, strengthening the younger generation’s computer science abilities.Pan was speaking on a panel focused on AI ethics in China at TechNode’s Emerge conference in Shanghai on Thursday morning.He was joined by Nancy Xu, CEO and founder of Cevolution, Christopher Byrd, fellow at Oxford University’s Future of Humanity Institute, and Danny Wang, China new IT and AI managing director at Accenture.

Anxiety, a common mental health issue that impacts many adults at some point during their lives, may be reduced through a combination of probiotic supplements and improving one’s diet.The findings come from a review of existing research performed by a team from Shanghai Jiao Tong University School of Medicine’s Shanghai Mental Health Center.The results build upon an existing body of evidence hinting at a profound gut-brain link.The observational study looked at a total of 21 high-quality studies involving a total of more than 1,500 people.Fourteen of the 21 studies involved the use of probiotics as a potential way to regulate intestinal microbiota, a type of intervention referred to as IRIF.The remaining seven studies involved a collective assortment of non-probiotic intervention methods, which included changing the foods participants ate daily.
Greenhouse-gas emissions are trapping heat on the planet and warming the oceans, causing unprecedented sea-level rise and coastal flooding around the globe.According to a new study, previous estimates from the United Nations about expected sea-level rise due to melting ice sheets were extremely conservative.If emissions continue unabated, global sea levels will rise by 6.5 feet by 2100 from melting ice alone, displacing 187 million people in coastal cities like New York and Shanghai.Scientists have known this for years, but they're only now realizing how quickly that melting is happening.Greenland's ice is melting six times faster now than it was four decades ago; the ice sheet is sloughing off an average of 286 billion tons of ice per year.In the last decade, that number jumped to an average of 252 billion tons per year.

As China’s digital economy matures, the country’s tech firms increasingly look overseas for growth opportunities.In few places are the stakes higher than in Southeast Asia and India.In Southeast Asia, the internet economy is predicted to expand nearly fourfold by 2025, while India recently reached 500 million internet users, and is expected to have over 800 million by 2022.However, while opportunities are abundant, competition is fierce.After evolving in the Chinese market, these firms must now do battle with both local upstarts and Silicon Valley titans in unfamiliar territory.So how are Chinese firms competing in the digital economy’s most sought-after developing markets?
China’s tech space was built on the back of growing affluence and the “consumption upgrade” of China’s increasingly connected population.However, as the giants have expanded and niche’s fill up, the number of new opportunities for growth in the consumer space is quickly dwindling.Ecosystem Alibaba, Tencent, and Bytedance are now eyeing the enterprise space in hopes of creating and taking advantage of the immature market.Surprising to realize, but much of the growth in the tech space had nothing to do with applying technology to business operations.Instead, companies were able to hire more people and wring extra productivity from them.Propelled by rising wages and increasing demand for work-life balance from their employees, China’s small and medium enterprises find themselves actually needing technology in their business.
Lifestyle services super app Meituan has expanded its aggregated ride-hailing services to an additional 15 cities around China, intensifying competition in the sector and taking direct aim at Didi.The company initially launched the service, which allows users to access vehicles from several ride-hailing platforms within Meituan’s app, in Nanjing and Shanghai in late April.Users are given the choice of hailing rides using Shouqi Limousine & Chauffeur, Caocao Chuxing, and Shenzhou, as well as its own Meituan Dache.Market leader Didi has not been included in the service.Meituan has now expanded the scope of the platform to an additional 15 cities, including the eastern cities of Suzhou, Hangzhou, and Ningbo, as well as Xi’an, Chengdu, Wuhan, and Shenzhen.Meituan isn’t the first platform that allows users to book trips from multiple ride-hailing companies.
Tesla’s Elon Musk has made an ominous prediction about the automaker’s financial outlook, with a leaked memo from within the firm giving it less than a year to achieve breakeven at its current spending rate.Tesla announced losses of $700m in the last quarter, though the automaker did end the three month period with $2.2 billion in cash.Last-minute mobilizations of the workforce to meet production goals have become commonplace as the end of each quarter nears.Even with Model 3 a sales hit in its segment, and the Model Y crossover variant announced to a generally positive reception, Tesla’s position is still not as secure as it needs to be.In an email sent on Thursday to employees, leaked to Reuters this week, Musk announced that he would be taking a far more stringent approach to expenses moving forward.That will include assessing just about every outgoing possible in the hope of cutting costs.

CEO Elon Musk is to embark on a comprehensive expenses review at Tesla, according to Reuters.The 'leccy car maker recently completed a $2.7bn fundraising round to increase production.But at the rate it is spending money, that gives it less than a year to balance the books.In an email seen by the newswire, Musk warned staff: "That is why, going forward, all expenses of any kind anywhere in the word [sic], including parts, salary, travel expenses, rent, literally every payment that leaves our bank account must (be) reviewed."This is not the first attempt to trim expenses at the company: last year Tesla cut 9 per cent of its workforce; and earlier this year it closed most of its dealerships and shifted to online-only sales.In the first quarter of 2019, Tesla lost more than $700m despite sales of $4.5bn.

The automaker said it’s issuing the update “out of an abundance of caution.”The over-the-air update will change some of the settings in the cars’ battery management software related to charging and thermal controls, though the company didn’t go into further detail.(The software of Tesla’s battery management system is one of the company’s most closely guarded trade secrets.)In April, an older Model S seemingly spontaneously combusted while sitting unused in a parking structure in Shanghai.Just this week, another Model S caught fire in a parking lot in Hong Kong, shortly after the owner had charged the car.Fires involving Tesla’s batteries have gotten a lot of attention over the last few years, much to the dismay of CEO Elon Musk.
Tesla is updating the thermal management software for its vehicles' batteries, the company said Wednesday.The changes are being made out of an "abundance of caution" following two fires in Hong Kong and Shanghai that seemed to ignite without a clear cause.Business Insider reported in April that oversights and missteps by Panasonic at Tesla's Nevada Gigafactory could potentially increase fire risk in Tesla's batteries.Tesla said Wednesday that it will update the thermal management settings in its vehicles' software in response to a string of seemingly spontaneous fires.The company said it has not yet determined a cause of the Model S which caught fire in a Hong Kong shopping mall on March 14, or that of another in a Shanghai parking garage in April."Tesla battery packs are engineered with a state-of-the-art design so that in the very rare instance a fire does occur, it spreads very slowly and vents heat away from the cabin, alerting occupants that there is an issue and giving them enough time to exit the vehicle," a Tesla spokesperson said regarding the Hong King fire.
