Chinese Tech giants and government agencies are investing heavily in infrastructure to make datasets publicly available to other researchers and AI companies. In digital health, these AI companies need medical experts to annotate images to teach algorithms how to identify anomalies. The approach has been largely collaborative.  It was interesting to read this interview with Chinese Unicorn Yitu Technology in South China Morning Post. Yitu reports that it has a team of 400 doctors working part time just to label medical data, and adds that higher salary ranges in the US may make this an expensive option for startups here.” – Another indication that China will lead the AI industry?
