About Xiaofeng Ren

The Machine Intelligence and Technology Lab is Alibaba’s AI R&D division. Being part of the DAMO Academy, it spearheads Alibaba’s efforts in AI to bring sweeping and disruptive changes to the company’s (and China’s) dynamic business landscape, and to “solve the problems of the future”.

Xiaofeng Ren has been the chief scientist at Machine Intelligence Technology since 2017 when he moved across from Amazon, where was previously a senior principal scientist leading the algorithm developments of Amazon Go that powered the launch of the world’s first Just-Walk-Out store. This move was brought on by Ren’s goal to power Jack Ma’s intention to build an R&D capability to deliver his vision for the next 20 years, “becoming the fifth largest economy in the world, serving 2 billion consumers, creating 100 million jobs and helping 10 million companies make profit”.
