Baidu appoints new cloud chief
Baidu Inc. has tapped executive vice president Shen Dou to lead the company’s AI cloud group as part of a leadership shakeup.
The role change comes as the firm tries to diversify its revenue base to lessen dependence on the online advertising business, which has been in decline.
