Clearly, Big Data and Artificial Intelligence (AI) are at the very heart of the digital transformation at work within SCMP: "I think about data in three ways," says Liu: (1) "It helps us operate the company with more precision and efficiency, (2) it improves our user experience by making our products smarter, and (3) it contributes to a future of artificial intelligence."
