The designation is a recognition that Xiaomi makes innovation a priority, commits investment and talent to it, and works to transform investment into results. In this year's first quarter, Xiaomi's research and development (R&D) expenses increased by 17.7% compared to the year before, reaching RMB 4.1 billion. As of March 2023, the number of R&D personnel reached approximately 16,500, which was more than 50% of Xiaomi's employees. The same month, Xiaomi's R&D efforts have yielded the company more than 32,000 patents worldwide. Total R&D investment for 2023 is expected to exceed RMB 20 billion.

It officially established an AI Lab Foundation Model team in April and has more than 1,200 AI-related employees. The company will continue to expand AI-related user scenarios, maximize technological advances, and explore opportunities with potential partners.

BCG’s Most Innovative Companies ranking is based on a survey of more than 1,000 global innovation executives who were polled in December 2022 and January 2023.
