Why Is China Superior In Facial Recognition Tech

Singapore’s Temasek is one of the investors in the Chinese artificial intelligence (AI) company SenseTime which has filed for IPO in Hong Kong. The Softbank backed company will go IPO at $2 Billion in Hong Kong.

SenseTime last week raised $620 million in fresh funds from investors like Fidelity International, Hopu Capital, Silver Lake and Tiger Global. Alibaba is also a big backer in this company.
