Other participants in the round include Goldstone Investment (the PE fund management subsidiary of Citic Securities) and the investment arm of Chinese automaker BAIC, BAIC capital.

AISpeech that counts MediaTek, Foxconn and Alibaba among its major investors has a set timetable for its initial public offering but did not reveal further details.

AISpeech features a human-machine interaction known as DUI (Dialogue User Interface) plus a chip called TH1520 that it co-launched with the largest semiconductor foundry in China, Semiconductor Manufacturing International Corporation.

AISpeech has provided AI technologies to many clients, approximately 8,000, including Alibaba, Logistics Company SF, and Xiaomi, a smartphone maker.

The acquired funds will be used to expand in smart wearables, finance, government-facing services, and automotive.
