“Joining the internet-related business sector was inevitable for me, but also by chance.
The first time I saw and got into the head of a computer was in 1991 atmymom’s factory in Hunan province. At the time, I was immediately curious about this amazing machine and was itching to spend all my winter holidays learning about it.
I quickly fell in love with the computer, and I organized 1. computer training when I returned to Beijing and often devouredbooksandmagazines on the subject at weekends.
I had a close friend at university and he rented a basement for me after graduation. In this small and shabby space, we played computer games and he told me a lot of really interesting things about the machine, which was rarely used in the early 1990s. It made me hugely
In September this year, the nation’s top court established a fourth online platform for residents to watch trials and see curious and I couldn’t thinking about it.

Legal knowledge and services were finally connected by the internet — and a dream of mine to combine the two was fulfilled.
The connection is the first step. What I want to do is help litigants solve their judicial problems through artificial intelligence. That is why I and my colleagues developedFaXiaotao, the lawrobot.
We hope we will always be exploring, using both our legal and internet intelligence to serve people and witness the world entering a new cyber age.”
