Dr. Kai-Fu Lee Begins His Job as Head of Google China

Asia Pulse reports that Kai-Fu Lee has begun his job as the person in charge of Google’s operations in China.

He begins his job after a Washington judge ruled nine days ago that Lee could recruit for Google and work on getting government permissions but cannot work on search or speech technology. A trial that begins in January will offer a final ruling.

Lee told Asia Pulse that Google will soon decide in which city (either Beijing or Shanghai) they’ll build their China research enter.

The top Chinese scientist at Google said his job is to hire at least 50 college graduates by the end of this year, as the job-hunting season for graduate students starts this month. “We are here not to steal talent from other companies, but to train local people,” he said.
