Chinese internet search-engine giant Baidu Inc. announced an organizational shakeup on Tuesday to boost its push to become a major player in artificial intelligence and smart devices.

The tech company said it is merging three existing units — the Duer Business Unit, Raven Studio and the Hardware Ecosystem Division — to become the Smart Living Group. That newly created division will be directly supervised by Lu Qi, Baidu’s chief operating officer.
