3 of Jack Ma's 5 News - from Alibaba Computing Conference Oct 2016

New Finance -- The birth of New Finance will accelerate the transformation of the entire society, Ma continued. The New Finance in the future will focus on supporting 80% of the enterprises which comprises small and medium businesses and personalized enterprises. "Internet finance will leverage data to create a true credit system. This will in turn bring about popular finance, which enables everyone to have sufficient money."

New Technology -- YunOS-powered HP notebook with Intel's YoC cloud chipsetThe existing mobile internet will soon give birth to New Technology, said Ma. This will see the replacement of old PC chipsets with mobile chipsets, the replacement of old operating systems with mobile OS, and the replacement of machines with the use of artificial intelligence.

At the Conference, Alibaba YunOS' president Chunhui Zhang announced to have partnered with Intel and HP to launch a laptop computer (pictured, right) that is purpose-built for deliver cloud-based e-learning content. Installed with YoC, a chipset that is jointly developed YunOS and Intel, this HP notebook will run on Alibaba's YunOS, which serves to integrate hardware, software and service.

New Resources -- Finally, New Resources will see future technology developments reliant on data instead of petroleum and coal. "Jian Wang said data is the first resources that humans created themselves. Old resources are like worn clothes that are no longer worthy if you wear them again. With data, however, the more you use them, the more valuable they become." 


Hupan University was started in Hangzhou by Jack Ma with other leading entrepreneurs since launching this university, Jack has become chair of China Entrepreneur Club, hosted the first 1000 person philanthropy summit at ali baba campus, Hangzhou hosted China's G20 andSME collaboration  the EWTP Electronic World Trade Platform for small enterprises. He has been appointed as China's commissioner of education linking 30 leaders views at and the UN's special adviser on Youth Entrepreneurship

Celebrating Small Enterprises - Jack's G20 invitation (EWTp)

 is an authorised research and student portal webbed out of Beijing's leadership world of Tsinghua University. Its coordinator Ying Lowrey also authors systems books for understanding Jack Ma's innovations (on sustainability of small enterprises, villagers and for youth) around the world  Gao Hongbing is the President of AliResearch, Director of Policy Institute, and founder of Information Society 50 Forum (IS50) and WeFinance 50 Forum.

Relying on the largest and most dynamic Alibaba online business eco-system in the world, following the internet spirit of being open, co-sharing and transparent, and based on the forward-looking ideas and insights, strong data drive and rich accumulation of cases, AliResearch is committed to becoming the think tank and intellectual platform of the new economic and new governance field. In the future, AliResearch will co-create, co-build and share the future-oriented new ideas, new insights and new rules together with the researchers and intellectual bodies from all fields.

in era of trump - us friends of jack ma's vision desperately need to know if this mit approach is in line with the way he would democratise future of higher education certificates  
MIT Media Lab Rolls Out Blockcerts —  Open Infrastructure for Academic Credentials on the Blockchain MIT Media Lab has released a  decentralized credentialing system for academic, professional, and workforce credentialing called Blockchain Certificates (Blockcerts) — an open standard for digital academic certificates on the Bitcoin Blockchain.The Bitcoin Blockchain acts as the provider of trust, and credentials are tamper-resistant and verifiable.There are four Blockcerts components: 

Issuer — Universities create digital academic certificates that can contain a wide range of assertions about an individual’s skills, achievements, or characteristics, and register it on the bitcoin Blockchain.Certificate — Certificates are open badges compliant, which is important, because there is an entire community of open badges issuers that we want to support, and because open badges is becoming an IMS standard.Verifier — Anyone can, without having to rely on the issuer, verify that (1) a certificate has not been tampered with, that (2) it was issued by a particular institution, and (3) issued to a specific user.Wallet — Individuals can safely store their certificates, and share them with others, for example, an employer. The iOS wallet is available already, and we are looking for partners to develop an Android version.

They stress the importance of Open Source in a Medium post:

At its core, Blockcerts is open. The software is open source and anyone is welcome to join the developer community. Only an open standard allows individuals to remain fully in control of their own academic history. That is important, because academic certificates are markers of our lives. They can be tickets to a better job or education, and we can use them to tell a story about who we are and how we have become that person. And being open enables us to bootstrap a new ecosystem for digital academic credentials, by allowing other collaborators to take co-ownership. Through collaborating around an open standard, we can help to insure an interoperable credentialing ecosystem. The Bitcoin Blockchain is still a relatively new technology and its complexity and immutability make it important to carefully consider the long-term effects that small design decisions can have. Letting others review and contribute will make Blockcerts more robust and reliable.

Blockcerts started as a research project at the MIT Media Lab, led by Philipp Schmidt and Juliana Nazare (with help from many others, including Guy Zyskind and Jeremy Rubin), and they collaborated with Learning Machine, an education technology company. Kim Hamilton was the technology lead and release manager for the core software and standard, and Chris Downie developed the iOS wallet reference implementation. Chris Jagers and Dan Hughes, were instrumental in thinking through the broader implications of an open standard for academic certification...........................................................................................................................................................................................................................

HAPPY 2017... IN our survey of top 9 missing jobs curricula i believe this report below by fast company adds further support for our reasoning for featuring 2 in tip 9

maths should be redesigned at every age to have entries into coding
blockchain needs a grade 50 curriculum so that even if the biggesthe social/sustainability fund deciiion makers dont understand hoiw to code bloickchain their top practice and sustainability reporting team does

thanks to the recent kissinger briefing : to start 2017 I think i know enough chinese americans and chinese to keep on accelerating connections between people who want to fix this curriculum-I also understand who in intel is cataloguing what truly open source curricula content exist; when you attend any beijoing summits this is a number 1 question of all pro-youth media - the fact that the usa is the exact opposite is a national disgrace  (I also know who's really who in kenya on coding revolutions being massively hubbed through youth) - does anyone know how to navigate other countries or hubs in this regard? i wil also try and make this an issue in reconnecting with branson movements related to this - and i dont see why my discussions with british council, british aid and girls networks like BRAC about how under-represented english language teaching is cant connect with lets connect suopercoders too; 

 can always do with your advise on how to accelrate, scale and make these connections locally inclusive
  • Fast Company has revealed a list of the top universities worldwide in the production of coders, with results produced by teams of more than 5,000 coders competing in a competition for individual and scoring rankings. 
  • The Russian Federation College finished with the world's top score, followed by institutions from China and Vietnam. The University of California - Berkeley placed fourth as the top team from the U.S., and one of just three teams in the top 25 — and 8 in the world's top 50 — institutions. 
  • India placed 22 universities in the top 25, and students from China indicated that coding instruction can begin as early as elementary school, a precursor for high performance in college. 

Dive Insight:

While the United States may boast the strongest number of the world's students traveling abroad for higher education, it is clear that in at least one industry many nations and institutions are outpacing some of the biggest and most well-known schools in the nation. The question is if that is a function of the education U.S. students are receiving in college, or a lack of exposure to coding training in primary and secondary schools? 

This is the kind of data that college leaders should use to present to lawmakers and federal officials to spur the kind of funding emphasis for higher education and K-12 that can make the nation more competitive with other developing and established countries. It is not just a matter of who is the best at writing code, but which nation becomes more prone to hacking of critical tech infrastructure and other critical networks which help power transportation, military, education and security in the U.S.

friends- below latest china-us friends exchange needs 

lot going on in the space chinese and american youth need to keep open through Jack Ma's loveQ of chinese english and coding languages while technologists blochchain badwill politicking out of this planet




first i will see parveen's friend Tania in next 7 days while she's home in usa for thanksgiving - amy and yuxuan also met her when we first interviewed sir fazle family during his 80th birthday celebrations on how chinese students could help brac; back in 2010 Tania first introduced us to top of Brac and she and the head of brac bank attended the 69th birthday party of muhammad yunus that my family sponsored- apparently from yunus viewpoint this was the worst birthday present ever which was where i discovered it was sir fazle who had truly done much more that yunus to empower women to build 100 million person nation; by good fortune sir fazle kind remembrance of my father at a party at japan embassy in april 2012 coincided with sir fazle launching the good news that he had found the technologists who would build him a cashless bank - remembering this is built round dumb mobile phones not smart ones - it is the greatest leapfrog that tech can do -now the coding wizards who built bkash reside at MIT and dubai- the question I am not smart enough to answer is if you are the world greatest at dumb mobile phones will you be great at blockchain smart leapfroging networks -what we needed to go interview china poverty association on


second amy and my friend chuck now has a million visitors to Jobenomics | A National Grassroots Small Business and Job Creation Movement -the american movement aiming to unite everyone who wants to redesign markets around small enterprises

he wants one of his leaflets translated into chinese since we who speak english need to develop friendships with chinese who believe in small enterprises with or without the help of usa new president (big politicians in usa like hilary were the last breed in the world capable of doing big data analyeis for small enterprise networking - the jury is still out as to whether trump top 10 advisers will included one small enterprise person -chances are zero unless its a startup technologist)

third blockchain remains the way every small enterprise revolution for humanity will be scaled -while i dont like to depend on him it may be that english speaking businessmen will have to go on a trade delegation to china led by branson- at least he is an uber networker of this -below is t agenda of his next summit which costs about 50000 dollars a person to attend-one reason why branson isnt really an end poverty entrepreneur except when mandela was around to inspire him

fourth i am still struggling to match the 5 different leaders of educational summits that i now have identified but need to check whether eg Intel will help me write a common recommendation to all 5 summits network coordinators of if not intel who

fifth african diasporas dont really understand what they have where they are the continents gateway to one belt one road but since that build a hemisphere of world trade independently of the americas its great;; but not the first game to get donald running unless russia china and america become overnight friends; back in 1983 when dad used to attend cocktail parties with george soros such a tripartite celebration with the coming fall of berlin wall (and just a bit of smart reporting on BBC) was how to launch half a century of peace but we have somehow overshot that due to the cultural fear americans have whenever the word communism is used- this explains why americans cant understand that community capitalism is now what jack ma united the world round

In a major expansion of its global footprint, Alibaba Cloud, Alibaba Group’s cloud computing arm, plans to open four new data centers by the end of the year, including its first in Europe.

The new data centers—located in Japan, Germany, the Middle East and Australia—will bring Alibaba Cloud’s worldwide total to 14, including two in the U.S., helping the company compete for a larger share of the cloud computing market outside its home base of China.

With more than 2.3 million customers worldwide, including 651,000 paying clients, Alibaba Cloud is the largest cloud infrastructure services provider in China and ranks among the top five in the world in 2015, according to market research firm IDC.

The new data centers “will further expand Alibaba Cloud’s global ecosystem and footprint, allowing us to meet the increasing demand for secure and scalable cloud computing services from businesses and industries worldwide,” said Sicheng Yu, an Alibaba Group vice president and general manager of Alibaba Cloud Global, in a statement.

cloudWorldThe additional locations will provide customers with the potential for more responsive network communications. Meanwhile, Alibaba Cloud’s products, including data storage and analytics services, enterprise-level middleware and cloud security services, will be available in more markets, the company said.

When opening overseas data centers, Alibaba Cloud “tends to chose strong local partners wherever we go,” Yu told Alizila. Working with local companies helps reduce capital investment risk, he said. “We don’t know the market as well as the local partner does.”

For example, the data center in the Middle East—which is located in Dubai and started initial operations today—is a joint venture with Dubai-based holding company Meraas, while the Japanese data center is a joint venture with SoftBank.

To open its first data center in Europe, Alibaba Cloud partnered with telecommunications company Vodafone Germany. Co-located in Vodafone’s data facilities in Frankfurt, Germany, one of the leading technology hubs in Europe, the center is “well positioned to meet the increasing demand for sophisticated cloud computing services as the region seeks to accelerate the upgrade of its digital infrastructure,” according to Alibaba Cloud.

Alibaba Cloud has been growing its top line at triple-digit rates as demand for cloud-based computing infrastructure increases in China and worldwide. Revenues jumped 130 percent to RMB 1.49 billion ($224 million) in the quarter ended Sept. 30 compared with the same period in 2015.

Alibaba Cloud officials stressed that in addition to geographic expansion and expansion of products and services through strategic partnerships, the company company continues to invest in advanced technologies including artificial intelligence, deep learning and data analytics.

“Alibaba Cloud has contributed significantly to China’s technology advancement, establishing critical commerce infrastructure to enable cross border businesses, online marketplaces, payments, logistics, cloud computing and big data to work together seamlessly,” said Alibaba Cloud President Simon Hu in a statement.

During Alibaba Group’s recent 11.11 Global Shopping Festival, a giant 24-hour online sale, Alibaba Cloud technology supported all of Alibaba’s online marketplaces and facilitated a record-breaking 175,000 transactions per second during peak traffic spikes.

But beyond China, the company’s long-term goal is to “establish cloud computing as the digital foundation for the new global economy using the opportunities of cloud computing to empower businesses of all sizes across all markets,” Hu said.

With the addition of the new centers, Alibaba Cloud now has a presence on every continent except Africa, South America and Antarctica, Yu said. “We will [open] more data centers around the world, based on markets and customer response, that’s for sure,” he said.

dear george -could you tell me dates of your bangladesh trip when known

also i realise the process below is under brainstorming but could it interest you- if some of your adolescent health care curriculum is already curated in you tube videos or a blog or something could you tell us where to look so we could start blending it into a few baltimore experiments 

there are different ways to build the dynamic of how much could we all peer to peer in a group - eg stephanie's friends in africa have coded an app that lets a teenage woman test a lot of her own health in one part of her body- i assume the environment of adolescent girls clubs which is bracs main african network could gain hugely from assembling all related content

===================================== whats now #learning generation world possible with intel's new toy?

Would the 5 of us in to list have time to arrange a meeting - idea could be exciting to many subgroups of us but to list are regionally involved in jobs learning formats 


we have a new toy to play with- as soon as you go into a room up to 50 people can use their mobile to learn directly from you


two things I would like to brainstorm


if chuck went into a room and 50 people turned on their mobile to search what green jobenomics francises chuck already had or most wanted to develop next what would that catalogue of learning look like


if we were to put every peer to peer health idea together - eg 1 as in la maestra what would the caytalogue of community peer health services look ,like




- to be frank if people thought of themselves as potentially teaching any 50 people who were around them you might go into  room , tell people to get wifi, and going to your blog arranged for such a 50 person search through what they could be learning from you


but this toy makes this so much easier to curate; also if a space like al's cyberlab exists the toy can collect lesson dialogues with anyone who has ever passed through the room or is coming to speak there- it can become a lab where people add on their peer to peer learning modules


I suggest concentrating on health as

1 this may be a way to re,market zara la maestra in baltimore and indeed any inner city which wants to test her model's replication

2 we know several people whose world expertise is about franchising peer to peer last mile health resilience in a community so if we can show that health microfranchises are one of the jobenomics areas maybe this will make it easier to pick up phone to jim kim



dr ranga if you have more to add -please do - i am trying to describe the way the intel's world possible rachel toy changes the dynamic wherever 50 people meet in a space where one is designated as chief tutor


this toy can be a total gamechanger for any real hub or youth entrepreneur competition space one walks into as well as linking hub to hub


of course to help places fast start ali baba universities everywhere i would like to work out what to program so that if a chief tutor of blockchain walked into the room ... but maybe peer to peer health content is already much more rehearsed

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."

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.

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 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.
