dear rohit

glad to see you work is advancing  so many exciting waves

can you remind me where you are mainly based and if I was flying through would there be a chance of meeting?

i am in the middle of future publishing the world record book (and games) of job creators- I dont know if there could be synergies in understanding publishing partnerships


unfortunately my father's lifetime work at The Economist has more or less been destroyed from systemic view and there seems to be nobody left at the economist concerned with whether we are truly designing sustainability around the net generation- its quite a blow having tried 15 of dads former colleagues- the three who most understood him and his genre of entrepreneurial revolution died early; 

anyhow good luck with your branson and other curricula of technology- my main unique focus is connecting a worldwide association of chinese technology revolutionaries starting with jack ma -do you happen to know whether any of branson team have visited ali baba campus yet- as one example jack ma is connecting the greatest blockchain coders in a new worldwide financial system that is SME integrated; alongside this no less that Xi Jinping co-launched the eWTP (electronic World Trade Platform) at Hangzou G20- the argument being why should SMEs not be celebrated with by a borderless free market - even a  nation's most nationalistic politicians  cant seriously claim the nation needs protection from a foreign SME

another guru centre all my best tech friends in new york are concerned with is steve wolfram - do you already have all the connects you want there?

MIT is my other space for visiting on absolutely any collaboration excuse i can muster

Bangladesh and UAE can be very good but careful selection needed; would always have loved to have understood how kenya Ihubs but when i was about to trip several hundred students were killed simultaneous to Obama announcing he was entrepreneur summiting there so it seemed too difficult a space to navigate for someone like me with limited resources

cheers chris macrae washington dc 240 316 8157

I have copied the ,most curious ;person in new york, london and new zealand within my personal acquaintances- new zealand may well become the first full partner to ali baba university though I believe canada is seriously in the same race

Lessons in AI – The AI Summit

San Francisco, CA Sept. 28th- 29th


Fast Future Publishing at The AI Summit, San Francisco

Last week, we were honoured to be invited to and attend The AI Summit in San Francisco, the world's largest AI business event.

In the surroundings of San Francisco’s Fort Mason Center, with the Golden Gate Bridge and Alcatraz as part of the landscape out to sea, more than 600 conference delegates, sponsors, and speakers gathered to discuss and learn how:

  • AI technologies are already being implemented across many business functions, yet often quietly and without (yet) receiving the attention or investment needed;
  • AI will have a major impact in human productivity – it really is the fourth industrial revolution;
  • Deep / Machine Learning is king among current AI implementation / investment and Image / Voice Recognition and NLP are at an accelerating pace;
  • The conversation around ethics and regulation is highly pertinent; more so for an AI-powered business; and
  • The time to get involved with AI is now; if you haven’t started already, get going and don’t get left behind your competitors!

The summit was notable for the combination of technical and business focused sessions, providing opportunity for both customer facing organisations and technology service providers to share their perspectives on AI.

What is clear is that AI will permeate our future work and social lives. Examples of the application of AI were provided for the retail, healthcare, fashion, consumer goods, and leisure sectors, as well as technology providers steering the delegates through current and planned developments.

What did Fast Future Publishing see in the summit generally and the presentations specifically?

The technical innovation for AI is accelerating and creating new opportunities for businesses to create new value for the customers and clients. And the rate of innovation is increasing.

A number of speakers touched on the implication for business models, and how they might change with the implementation of AI technologies. The suggestion was made that an existing Fortune 500 company drops out of the index on a regular basis, the implication being that newer, maybe AI enabled businesses are growing fast, and their growth is attracting the attention of investors.

Companies – particularly big organisations – with established structures, systems, and culture deploy AI to create the information for people to make informed decisions. But do the people then become the blockers to accelerated decision making that AI is capable of?

Organisational culture was spoken about a number of times; of how AI and the human workforce can be integrated, as well as how AI might support workforce development and interaction between the business and its customers.

And judging by what we heard, “uber” is becoming a verb where the definition is something like, “To take a new approach in a market place and radically change the market dynamics through the deployment of new technology.”

Here are the top ten questions we came away from the summit with:

  • What is the AI landscape now and in the future?
  • If stock markets are seeing traditional companies fall out and being replaced by new ones, what will the major markets look like in 10 years?
  • Are we at the cusp or a radical overhaul of the business landscape with new players taking the place of traditional / legacy companies?
  • How will AI enabled companies be valued in future, and will AI enabling itself become a critical driver of a company’s valuation?
  • How will investors consider AI enabled businesses compared to the rest?
  • Is it possible for a Hilton to “do an Airbnb”?
  • Could emotional perspectives – loyalty to an established brand, for example – render AI deployment less effective if the technology is prevented from decision making processes and restricted to complex analysis?
  • How much of a hurdle to change and effective AI deployment is organisational culture?
  • Which sectors are embracing and deploying AI to great effect to their customers and their business models?
  • Is AI being used by some companies to defend their existing business model, and not as a creative disrupter to bring radical change to markets?

For more information about The AI Summit, future events, and the organisation behind the summit, AI Business, see www.aibusiness.org.

Alibaba founder Jack Ma unveils ambitious plan

Mission: 100 million new jobs

By Dana McCauley

He already runs the world's biggest online shopping company, but Alibaba founder Jack Ma is not satisfied.

The Chinese billionaire has unveiled an even more ambitious plan to expand the company's reach across the globe, creating 100 million new jobs and transforming the global economy to create a more equitable world.

It may sound pie-in-the-sky, but the goal forms part of mission statement of the US$261 billion company's visionary executive chairman.

In a letter to shareholders, Ma outlined Alibaba's achievements of the past financial year - including a gross merchandise turnover of more than $195 billion (1 trillion RMB), an "unprecedented" figure - before looking to the future.

"We have more than 430 million annual active buyers, which means one out of every three individuals in China has made a purchase on our retail marketplaces," Ma wrote.

But, he said, while proud of Alibaba's online shopping achievements, "we want to do far more", saying that the benefits of globalisation had not been spread evenly, but that "digital disruption will bring us closer to a level playing field for young people and small businesses".

"We are not merely trying to shift buy/sell transactions from offline to online, nor are we changing conventional digital marketing models to squeeze out a little additional profit," he wrote.

"We are working to create the fundamental digital and physical infrastructure for the future of commerce, which includes marketplaces, payments, logistics, cloud computing, big data and a host of other fields."

The Alibaba group of companies, founded in 1999, accounts for 60 per cent of all Chinese online sales, and this year overtook Walmart as the world's largest retailer.


It has made Ma the second richest man in Asia, with a net worth of US$28.5 billion.


It's through cloud computing that Alibaba aims to expand its reach, and the company has been investing in the technology as part of a strategy that sees shoppers' data as the contemporary equivalent of mineral riches.

"Over the next 30 years, with computing power as the new 'technology breakthrough' and data as the new 'natural resource,' the landscape of retail, financial services, manufacturing and entertainment will be transformed," Ma wrote, forecasting a decades-long period of transformation.

"The internet revolution is a historical inflection point, much like when electricity was introduced, and it may have an even greater impact," he predicted.

Alibaba's mission, he said, was to "empower merchants with the ability to transform and upgrade their businesses for the future" and "help companies all over the world to grow".

"We believe, the commerce infrastructure we have created in China - marketplaces, payments, logistics, cloud computing and big data, all working in concert - can be applied on a global scale to lift up small and medium businesses and ordinary consumers around the world."

Eight years after launching, Alibaba Cloud hosts 35 per cent of Chinese websites, while delivering cloud computing and big data services.


Ma said Alibaba was constantly adapting to the changing e-commerce environment, as staying at the forefront of innovation was key to its continued success.

"In the coming years, we anticipate the birth of a re-imagined retail industry driven by the integration of online, offline, logistics and data across a single value chain," he said.

"With e-commerce itself rapidly becoming a "traditional business," pure e-commerce players will soon face tremendous challenges."

A shift to mobile revenue was one such change, he said, with mobile climbing from a single-digit percentage to three-years of total revenue from Alibaba's Chinese retail marketplaces, in the space of two years.

"This is why we are adapting, and it's why we strive to play a major role in the advancement of this new economic environment," Ma said.

Innovations like Alibaba's Qianniu app, which helps online businesses to improve sales and marketing while enhancing efficiency, were an example of the type of projects the company aimed to focus on.

"In 20 years, we hope to serve two billion consumers around the world, empower 10 million profitable businesses and create 100 million jobs," Ma said, adding: "This will be an even more difficult journey than the one behind us."


LISTEN : Newstalk ZB Political Editor Barry Soper speaks to Andrew Dickens on KPMG Early Edition

Mr Ma - who's worth around $50 billion - met with John Key in Beijing late yesterday. He made his money through founding the online commerce platform Ali Baba.

Standing alongside the Prime Minister, he heaped praise on the country, which he says is loved by many Chinese.

"At least 20 of my colleagues retired from Ali Baba. They're all very young, in their 40s, they all go to New Zealand."

"I asked what they do apart from the golf and green things and they say it's the people there."

It wasn't all social, with the Chinese billionaire also talking business.

Jack Ma told the entrepreneurs luncheon Kiwi businesspeople find it difficult to access the Chinese market.

Mr Ma said he wants to make that easier with his multi-platform organisation.

"We have Ali Baba University. We would either have courses in New Zealand or invite the entrepreneurs in New Zealand to stay in China for two weeks for training."

"The second is that we're going to open an Ali Baba business embassy next year in New Zealand."

John Key is in China meeting business and political leaders.



Innovation "Made in China" - The Case of Alibaba and the role of Net-based Small Business

Innovation is a key driver for economic development and social progress and small business is one of the best ways for people to express their willingness and capability to innovate.  Pervasive business ownership has, therefore, been the foundation in many societies for the continued improvement of people’s economic wellbeing. In the People’ Republic of China, however, private business ownership was prohibited between 1957 and 1978. Productive innovations were extremely restricted and as a consequence, China’s economy was on the verge of collapse by the end of 1978. The Chinese people had suffered a historic setback.

Alibaba’s growth, driven by unleashing grassroots entrepreneurship, has become an exemplar of China’s innovation in the 21st century.  Started by 18 young people in 1999, Alibaba has grown into a giant global internet platform and has made many invaluable contributions to China’s progress. Highlighting the importance of pervasive small business ownership in unleashing grassroots innovation and improving economic wellbeing, Professor Lowrey will discuss Alibaba’s innovative strategies and explain the economic theory behind its inspiring success.




Dr. Ying Lowrey is Professor of Economics at Tsinghua University and Deputy Director of the Tsinghua Research Center for Chinese Entrepreneurs, and a member of the Academic Committee for Alibaba Group Research Institute. Her teaching and research interests include economics of innovation and entrepreneurship in the internet and platform economy, the modern microfinance market, business demographics, characteristics of business owners, and the role of free enterprise and competition in the macroeconomy. 

She received her economics Ph.D. from Duke University, economics MA from Yale University and mathematics BS from Wuhan University. Before joining Tsinghua University in 2012, she served as senior economist at the Office of Advocacy, U.S. Small Business Administration and has taught economics at George Washington University and San Diego State University.

Founder of Ali Baba commits his work for Chinese on internet to generate 100 million microentrepreneur jobs in 2010s - who else would you vote at the centre of 100 million job creation leagues?
=====================update sumer 2016:
unlike oiher years spent with bangaldeshi inspired youth, i spent 2015-2016 mainly with a class of chinese female students - what brilliant minds and tirelss sources of human energy - i hope this summary of why the whole world can celebrate what jack ma is doing is near to the mark - but as always look forward to editing any errors which are mine alone
chris.macrae@yahoo.co.uk washington dc text 240 316 8157
was english language tutoring

In 1995 he was sent to the usa on an exchange mission and encountered the worldwideweb - then unknown in China. He determined the www would be the biggest job creating innovation of his (or his generations) life and hopefully of every Chinese entrepreneur he could valuably link into.

Over the next 15 years his wizard coding teams went from something that was little more than an electronic yellow pages for small businesses to conceiving sustainability generation's 2 greatest retailing platforms china or the world may ever have seen..

the taobao platform is the most valuable job creating concept retailers have ever mediated because it reverses the western trend of globalisiation of retailers, bankers and big corporations squeezing out local and small enterprises from having a market; how taobao did that is an extraordinarily detailed story but note how Ma was concerned to ensure even the most cut-off of Chinese villagers could start up on tao bao (rural ecommerce is one of the innovations that Ma has led the www purpose to linkin)

His other mall was pitched at the more usual high cost fashions of big global merchandisers. Because of complex property laws in chinese cities, most expensive retailers are not much of a joy to shop in. So ali baba created a lifestyle -eg celebrate singles day 11/11 shopping virtually rather than the physically exhausting interaction in The West's biggest shopping days of the year)

SO 365/24/7 consumers of ali baba can choose who they value developing most with their purchasing power as well as searching merchandise with global image or local cultural joy

Alibaba has become china's and probably the word's largest retailing channel. It does this with next to no merchandise but brilliant coding so that every store front on its platforms delivers with equal reliability. Hunting out exactly how Ma forms partnerships so that big data analysis benefits the smallest enterprises and most local consumers ought to be a job of whomever is sustainability goals greatest economist.

Intriguingly to ensure he could compete with the chinese internet companies that raced to co-create the www that Ma had opened space for in china, Ma IPO'd Alibaba through a process 2010-2015 while developing his secret sustainability weapon under private ownership. AlIpay is china's number 1 financial inclusion delivery system and maybe global youth most humanly productive coding achievement to date.

Comparing china's top 10 internet properties with the west's is very interesting. Are the consuming behaviours on ali baba more sustainable than those on amazon or ebay or paypal? Are the learnng behaviours on baidu more sustaining of youth than on google or coursera or microsoft's linkedin. Time will tell but note how speaking english, chinese and coding (as well as mother tongue) are probably what educators anywhere on planet earth should NOW be most valuing their global youth's future freedom to thrive entrepreneurially around.
