Raymond Ma: Three key reasons:

    • Democratization bolsters competitiveness. In our interconnected world, staying competitive hinges on keeping pace with AI advancements. Broad access to AI ensures that nations and businesses can maintain their edge in the global marketplace.
    • Democratization promotes inclusivity and reduces bias. A diverse AI ecosystem is less prone to algorithmic discrimination, and by making AI accessible, a broader range of perspectives contributes to fairer, more ethical AI solutions.
    • Democratization also empowers smaller businesses and startups. These enterprises often lack the resources for AI development. Alibaba Cloud’s accessible AI tools enable them to compete and innovate.
