Through policy initiatives such as the 13th Five-Year Plan and Made in China 2025, China has demonstrated commitment to getting a head start in the race to leadership in Artificial Intelligence (AI) Technology and machine learning, principally through promotion of big data technologies, cloud computing platforms, and the Internet of Things.

Moreover, the Chinese government is also supporting companies working towards AI initiatives.
