Prof. Fu speaks at the X-Lake Forum
OXFORD, UK, Nov 18th, 2023
On 16th November, OxValue.AI’s founder, Professor Xiaolan Fu, was invited to attend the 2023 X-Lake Forum in Shenzhen, China. 
Professor Fu delivered a keynote speech describing how AI can be used to assist in the valuation of novel and emerging technologies. She described the work of her own team, now being deployed at OxValue.AI: an original theoretical framework subjected to rigorous validation is now available via a cloud-based SaaS platform or, for ultimate privacy and convenience, offline on a client's local desktop. This approach benefits from wide applicability, precision, objectivity and advantaged cost at scale.
The 2023 X-Lake Forum was jointly hosted by China’s Ministry of Science and Technology and the Shenzhen Municipal government. This year’s forum, themed “Innovation and Sustainable Development,” focused on “Openness, Integration, and the Future.” It attracted experts and scholars all over the world to explore these key elements and to share the latest advancements in science and technology.
