       About this Prospectus
       Conventions that apply to this Prospectus, page 1

   1.                                                   We note the revisions
you made in response to prior comment 5; however, you continue to
                                                        disclose that "in the
context of describing our business, operations and consolidated
                                                        financial information,
  we,       us,    or the    Company    are to Shanghai Xiao-i." As
                                                        previously requested,
please exclude the variable interest entity, Shanghai Xiao-i, from
                                                        this definition and
make appropriate revisions throughout your filing. Similarly, please
                                                        revise your definition
of the "Group" on page 6 to remove the VIE and the VIE's

Capitalization, page 82

2.       We note in your response to prior comment 15 that the VIE has decided
to pay cash to the
         lenders upon completion of this offering. Please revise footnote (1)
to reflect this
         decision, quantifying the total cash payment as of the most recent
balance sheet date and
         disclosing the expected source of funds to cash settle these
obligations. Additionally, if
         the intent is to use proceeds from this offering, ensure that such
disclosure is accompanied
         by the risk that such a transfer may be delayed or restricted. This
comment also applies to
         your Use of Proceeds, Dilution, and Liquidity and Capital Resources in
         disclosures, as applicable.
Principal Shareholders, page 144

3.       We note your response to prior comment 11; however, we were unable to
         disclosures responsive to Items 7.A.1.c and 7.A.2. Please revise or
advise. With respect
         to Item 7.A.3, while we note you made revisions to the corporate legal
structure diagram,
         please revise to add a narrative discussion responsive to this item in
your Principal
         Shareholders section.
Related Party Transactions, page 146

4.       We note that the "Principal Shareholders" chart indicates that Hui
Yuan beneficially owns
         14.73% of Ordinary Shares prior to the offering. Please revise the
"Related parties" chart
         on page 146 and page F-33 to reflect Hui Yuan's updated ownership
percentage, or revise
         as appropriate.
Consolidated Financial Statements
Note 1. Organization and Principal Activities, page F-9

5.     We note your revised disclosure on page F-10 in response to prior
comment 12. We
       further note the revised disclosure on page F-15 that the "WFOE, through
       arrangements, . . . absorbs all risk of losses of the entity, receives
benefits of the entity that
       could be significant to the entity, excluding non-controlling interests.
.. ." The disclosure
       on page F-15 appears to imply that the exclusion of non-controlling
interests applies to the
       WFOE's ability to receive benefits of the VIE, but not to absorbing the
risk of losses.

6.       Please revise your disclosure regarding contract balances to quantify
the amount of
         amortization expense related to contract costs for each period
presented. Additionally,
         disclose any adjustments to the amount of amortization expense as part
of the
         restatement. Refer to ASC 340-40-50-3(b).
Note 9. Convertible Loans, page F-28

7.       In your response to prior comment 15 you state that the VIE has
decided to pay cash to the
         lenders upon completion of this offering; however, you also indicate
that you will disclose
         the reclassification of convertible loans into ordinary loans under
the subsequent events
         footnote in the June 30, 2022 financial statements. Please explain why
you would
         reclassify such convertible loans into ordinary shares as of June 30,
2022 considering the
         obligations remain outstanding and the VIE intends to cash settle the
obligations. Also
         revise to quantify the total cash to be paid to settle all outstanding
convertible loans. In
         this regard, Section II of the Investment Agreement appears to adjust
the cash payment
         calculation depending on the market value of the Proposed Listing
Company. Finally,
         considering the VIE cash balance as of December 31, 2021 please
disclose the expected
         source of funds that the VIE will use to pay cash to the lenders. In
this regard, in your
         response you state that the VIE will settle liabilities on its own
without involving the
Note 18. Restatement, page F-37

8.       Please revise your restatement disclosures for the Statement of
Operations to include
         the impact on operating income/(loss) before taxes and income tax
expense/(benefit). In
         this regard, ASC 250-10-50-7(a) requires the disclosure of the effect
of the correction on
         each financial statement line item. Also, please provide us with a
summary of how the
         restatement was reflected and a qualitative discussion of the
adjustments. In this
         regard, explain to us why the restatement resulted in a reduction in
the balance of
         capitalized contract costs and deferred revenues at December 31, 2020
and 2021. Also,
         describe for us the nature of the added cost of revenues and explain
why these costs were
         not previously reflected in your Statements of Operations. Finally,
explain to us why
         there was a lower amount of additional cost of revenues in the year
ended December 31,
         2021 compared to 2020 despite the relatively larger amount of added
revenues in 2021.

Please revise to
         disclose the extensions of the Xu***, Shi***, and Chen *** loans and
the decision by the
         VIE to pay cash to the lenders within ten working days after
completion of the listing date
         to settle the outstanding convertible loans, quantifying the total
cash payment. Refer to
         ASC 855-10-50-4(b).
