In its prospectus, the tech firm highlighted its leading position in artificial intelligence (AI) and said it owns the largest portfolio of AI patents and AI patent applications in the mainland. Baidu App, which is at the core of the company’s mobile ecosystem, had 544 million monthly active users last December.
