  • With Cheetah Robotics launch, software giant wants to create China’s first global tech brand | Jason Hiner Most of the Chinese tech giants—Alibaba, Baidu, and Tencent—have focused on China and been happy with that so far because it’s such a huge and lucrative market. App maker Cheetah Mobile, however, has over 70% of its customers outside of China. And this week it announced that it sees AI, deep learning, and robotics as a big part of its future. As a result, it’s spinning up a new subsidiary called Cheetah Robotics that’s going to make consumer-facing robots aimed at automating mundane tasks and jobs that humans don’t like doing. The company is also launching a second headquarters in Silicon Valley and its CEO and other C-level executives will split time between both headquarters. All of this is aimed at turning Cheetah into a multinational company and the first global tech brand to come out of China.
