Giving something back

Kai-Fu Lee is leaving Google (he managed their China operations) to form an angel investing fund for young Chinese entrepreneurs.

I have had some interest in Kai-Fu Lee's career since purchasing a copy of his doctoral thesis in the late 1980s on the Sphinx real time speech recognition system. I was looking at using time delayed neural networks for speech recognition, and Kai-Fu Lee's thesis was both interesting and inspiring.
