(Reuters) – Chinese artificial intelligence company Shanghai Zhizhen Intelligent Network Technology, also known as Xiao-i, has filed a lawsuit against Apple alleging that it infringed Xiao-i’s patents.
Xiao-i claims damages of 10 billion yuan ($ 1.43 billion) and calls on Apple to stop manufacturing, using, selling, selling, and importing products that infringe the patent in a social media post.
Xiao-i argued that Apple’s Siri speech recognition technology infringed a patent that was filed in 2004 and granted in 2009.
Apple did not respond to a request for comment. Reuters was not immediately available to find a copy of the court record.
The lawsuit marks the continuation of a dispute that has been going on for almost a decade.
