At that time, iFLYTEK issued a statement saying that it had paid attention to the information published on the official website of the U.S. Department of Commerce on October 8, and iFLYTEK and other Chinese technology companies were listed in the entity list by the US government.
IFLYTEK has the world's leading core technologies of artificial intelligence, all of which come from independent research and development of iFLYTEK, with independent intellectual property rights.
