AlphaGo, the artificial intelligence programme developed by Google, has just won the first of three games against China’s Go prodigy Ke Jie in Hainan.

But AlphaGo has also got other competitors in China. One of them is Jueyi, or FineArt, developed by Chinese tech giant Tencent. After winning 10 straight games against Ke Jie, the world’s No. 1 player, in February, Jueyi won the championship title in the 10th Computer Go UEC Cup in Japan in March.

The Belt and Road forum held in Beijing in May heralds China's strategy of globalisation 2.0. How much China has invested in the BRI? How can other countries along the routes join in and benefit from the opportunities? (p.20-25) Technologically China has often been perceived as playing the catch-up game. Not in Artificial Intelligence, which the country's tech giants are spearheading with some success. (p. 34-43) A migrant worker has taken the country by storm in her Dickensian essay about her hard life in modern Beijing. (p.52-55)
