The tech madman who made money by programming in high school
“I was fascinated by the tiny organizational system that ants moved when I was five or six years old.” As soon as he came into contact with computers and saw the effect of many hardware combinations, Zhu Xiujie was quickly attracted.He was exposed to computers in his father’s office when he was very young, and at the age of 8 he was exposed to computer introductory books in the elementary school library.

Try it, I started to make a website in junior high school, and I also made the first bucket of life through programming in high school.
In 2012, Zhu Xiujie entered the School of Software, Xi’an Jiaotong University. During his studies, he found that the internet atmosphere in Xi’an was poor, and there were few people doing science and technology. In 2013, he and his alumni founded the earliest technology entrepreneurship media in Northwest China, Geekwo, which covered about 100,000 entrepreneurial people in Xi’an at that time. Although the final result was not satisfactory, Zhu Xiujie accumulated experience in entrepreneurship.

Our company’s main job is to put the world’s most advanced artificial intelligence algorithms into practical applications. My two partners also met through the Internet and have a deep background in artificial intelligence research and development. At present, our company has only a dozen people, headquartered in New York, and divided into 3 teams below. The sales team is based in Dubai for business promotion; the R&D team is based in Xi’an, and I am mainly responsible for it; the software writing team is based in India. Compared with traditional companies, companies like ours are much smaller, but this is in line with the current development trend of international technology companies. The global division of labor is small and refined. ” Zhu Xiujie introduced.
Machine coSoon after lony was established, it received a seed round investment from a venture capital firm in New York.

When asked how the company will deal with competition in the future, Zhu Xiujie is very confident: “The threshold in the field of artificial intelligence is very high. Once this threshold is crossed, everyone is almost on the same starting line. Even if the ability in the future is not the world’s first, But we can guarantee that our system is the most advanced in the world at present, and although there is still a gap with high-end research centers such as Google, we can guarantee that we belong to the first echelon of technical capabilities in all artificial intelligence companies.”
