ADVANCE PRAISE for Smart Business Harry Shum, Executive Vice President, Microsoft AI and Research Group-- In an era when artificial intelligence and machine learning-technologies are redefining our entire society, it will be critical for companies around the globe to similarly remodel how they approach business strategy. Ming Zeng's Smart Business is an essential read for all executives and leaders who do not want to be left behind as new trends in AI shape our increasingly interconnected world. Eric Schmidt, former Executive Chairman, Google and Alphabet-- Ming Zeng makes the crucial connections between theory and practice, scale and growth dynamics, and changing managerial principles and the importance of creative talent. In my experience, people are hungry for ideas. Ming Zeng has put them in a unifying context and actionable format. Michael Spence, Nobel Prize-winning economist; professor, NYU Stern School of Business-- Smart Business is an important book. Most readers will have encountered artificial intelligence, algorithms, machine learning, cloud computing, and automation. But few of us have any intimate contact with how these digital technologies are forming the building blocks of new, flat, networked business organizations and the ecosystems in which they compete and cooperate. Ming Zeng's book closes that knowledge gap. W. Chan Kim, BCG Chair Professor of Strategy, INSEAD; New York Times-bestselling author, Blue Ocean Shift and Blue Ocean Strategy-- Smart Business vividly demonstrates why human creativity and innovation will become the key competencies for producing value in the future economy. In this provocative and insightful book, Ming Zeng, who has been a driver of Alibaba's cutting-edge practices, demands a radical new approach to strategy. This book is an indispensable must-read. Peter Thiel, entrepreneur; investor; and author, #1 New York Times bestseller Zero to One-- Ming Zeng shows why Alibaba is not just China's Amazon: online commerce looks very different when there are no incumbent retailers and no legacy logistics. In this sense, China has truly started from zero.
