Google Inc. has set up an artificial intelligence (AI) center in Beijing, enlarging its diminished presence in one of the world’s largest internet markets.

The AI center will be led by Fei-Fei Li, a Stanford professor who runs the Stanford Artificial Intelligence Lab and the Stanford Vision Lab, and Jia Li, head of research and development for Google Cloud and former head of research for Snap Inc., according to a Google statement on Wednesday. Fei-Fei Li joined Google last year.
