June 21, 2024 at 7:30 AM EDT

BEIJING, June 21, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- 36Kr Holdings Inc. ("36Kr" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: KRKR), a prominent brand and pioneering platform dedicated to serving New Economy participants in China, today announced that it has entered into a strategic partnership with SenseTime, a leading global artificial intelligence (AI) software company, to embed Artificial General Intelligence ("AGI") technology in diverse media scenarios, unleashing business innovation and commercialization potential.

As a media frontrunner in the New Economy sector, 36Kr boasts premium content creation capabilities and a massive volume of content production. Under the collaboration with SenseTime, 36Kr will leverage the latter's advanced AI tools, such as "SenseChat" and "SenseMirage," to upgrade its content production model with higher intelligence, higher efficiency and lower cost. Meanwhile, SenseTime's leading global AI software prowess and newly upgraded SenseNova 5.0 Large Model Series will empower 36Kr to unveil an array of AI-driven innovative product offerings, including "AI Media Coverage" and "AI Financial Report Interpretation," among others.

These AI-driven products will enable 36Kr to reach a much broader and more diversified base of enterprise customers, many of whom had previously been out of reach due to bandwidth and manpower limitations. The significantly expanded customer base, in turn, will further enhance 36Kr's commercialization capabilities. Furthermore, 36Kr and SenseTime will also jointly explore the application of SenseTime's leading digital avatar technology in AI marketing solutions, unlocking further commercial potential.

Mr. Dagang Feng, Co-chairman and Chief Executive Officer of 36Kr, commented, "Our strategic partnership with SenseTime once again demonstrates 36Kr's acumen in frontier technology and foresight for innovation. In collaboration with SenseTime, we will continuously explore multi-scenario applications of AGI technology to integrate large-scale AI model technologies into the media industry, enhancing our content production capabilities and commercialization efficiency."

Dr. Xu Li, Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer of SenseTime, commented, "We are proud to partner with 36Kr as we continue to strengthen the media sector through customized solutions powered by our industry-leading SenseNova 5.0. Through this partnership, we aim to grow an ecosystem that seamlessly integrates AGI technology through content creation. We look forward to a fruitful collaboration, leveraging the synergy with 36Kr and empowering further digital transformations across the industry."
