Chartwell is delighted to introduce technologist and writer, Xiaowei Wang. Xiaowei is the author of Blockchain Chicken Farm. The book explores the political and social entanglements of technology in rural China. It challenges the idea that rural culture and people are backwards. Instead, Xiaowei finds the countryside has adapted to rapid globalisation and is at the forefront of innovation.
From pork farmers using AI to produce the perfect pig to disruptive luxury counterfeits, Xiaowei’s first-hand account unravels the innovation, connectivity, and collaboration at work in China’s hidden heartlands.
