(Beijing) — Chinese ride-hailing app Didi Chuxing has set up an artificial intelligence (AI) lab in Silicon Valley in hopes of drawing talent for a future race into self-driving vehicles and to better analyze its hoards of ride-sharing data.

“The next decade will see Didi make breakthroughs in new-energy and self-driving vehicles and intelligent transportation systems, with the world’s most abundant source of transportation data,” Chief Technology Officer Zhang Bo said at a launch event for the new lab in Mountain View, California, on Wednesday.
