Baidu And Xiaomi Announce Partnership

The Chinese tech giants Baidu and Xiaomi have announced that they have entered into a partnership. The strategic partnership will see them working together to develop areas such as artificial intelligence, the internet of things, deep learning, computer vision and voice recognition. With Baidu moving away from being a search marketing company and moving towards AI, it makes sense to partner with Xiaomi, a company that is well-known in China for its high-tech hardware. The two companies have actually partnered together before; it was recently announced that some Xiaomi products are running on Baidu's conversational operating system DuerOS.
