Several artificial intelligence companies in Hangzhou, capital of East China's Zhejiang province, have received their first round of investment as they go through the initial public offering (IPO) process.
This has signified that the commercial value of AI is being further tapped into by the capital market at an accelerating speed.
Hangzhou Moredian Technology Co, an AI company, recently announced that it completed its financing, with Hangzhou Raycloud Co being the investor.
