Kaiser Kuo is a recognizable and influential figure in China's technology scene. The Chinese American is the former head of communications for Baidu.com, China's leading search engine, and former bureau chief for Red Herring, a popular technology business magazine. His diverse background certainly blurs the lines between art and business and transcends traditional career pathways. He is also a founding member of Tang Dynasty, one of the first heavy metal bands in China. He now leads The Sinica Podcast, "a weekly discussion of current affairs in China with journalists, writers, academics, policy makers, business people and anyone with something compelling to say about the country that's reshaping the world." In the closing general session, Kuo will host an on-stage podcast with a thought-provoking discussion with Li Xin, Managing Director of Caixin Global for the benefit of the CoreNet Global Summit audience, the association’s membership at large – and his global followers.
