Chinese tech media outlet Huxiu earlier this week released a series of images as a year-end review, casting light on Baidu, Alibaba, Tencent, and Huawei’s dominance over the artificial intelligence business landscape in China.

Citing consulting firms and investment companies including Deloitte and state-backed Everbright Securities, Huxiu classified nearly 200 players into three horizontal layers—infrastructure, technology, and application. It also traced the AI firms’ links to Alibaba in yellow, Baidu in blue, Huawei in red, and Tencent in green.
