A Young Chinese Community of Innovators and Pioneers

Since 1999,  MIT Technology Review has identified young innovators doing exciting work that could shape their fields for decades. Recognizing the rise of Chinese technology talent, the magazine decided to launch a 35 Innovators Under 35 specifically for China in May of 2017. This list is a collaboration between MIT Technology Review in Cambridge and our Chinese partners, TR China. It gathers the young Chinese who could revolutionize our lifestyles and shape the future of technology and industry.

Recognition by MIT Technology Review gives these young people a platform to present themselves and their achievements to industry leaders, academic experts, and the global public. Each year, brilliant men and women are recognized for their advancements in diverse technical fields including biotechnology and medicine, computer and electronics hardware, software, internet, artificial intelligence, robotics, telecommunications, nanotechnology and materials, energy, and transportation.
