AI Artificial Intelligence: Trend and Demand are as Critical
2019 World AI Congress, provinces and cities race to grasp their strategic plan, to seize the opportunity for artificial intelligence development. Today, the three major AI industry clusters, represented by Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei, Yangtze River Delta, Guangdong, Hong Kong and Macao, have begun to take shape. AI is undoubtedly one of the hottest technology and industry keywords in recent years.
Some say AI is leading a new industrial revolution. The Internet age is quietly coming to an end, replaced by the AI era. Concerns have also been expressed about the popularity of AI as a substitute for human thinking that will replace the human brain and eventually conquer the human race.
Driven by market demand and guided by national policies, China has set off a wave of artificial intelligence entrepreneurship and has become the cradle of artificial intelligence attracting worldwide attention. By end of March, there were 5,386 active AI companies around the world, with about 22.1 percent coming from China Mainland, second only to the United States, according to the China Academy of Information and Communication Technology. In 2018, China’s AI market was worth about CNY 33 billion and the global AI market was worth about US$ 270 billion. The global AI market is forecast to grow to US$680 billion by 2020. China’s AI market is expected to reach the trillion scale by 2030. China has published more than 90,000 papers on AI, ranking first in the world. So, the momentum of China’s economic development is moving forward to seizing the commanding heights of future industrial competition.
Xi Jinping, General Secretary of the Communist Party of China, stressed that “artificial intelligence is a strategic technology leading this round of scientific and technological revolution and industrial transformation.” In 2017, AI was included in the government work report. The state council issued the development plan for the new generation of artificial intelligence, elevating the development of “artificial intelligence” to the level of national strategy. Subsequently, more than 20 provinces and municipalities have released a new generation of artificial intelligencedevelopment plans. Artificial intelligence has become an important strategic lever for China to win the initiative in global scientific and technological competition.
Artificial intelligence is not to play cool nor to show off, but to drive the innovation of industries. With the integration of industrial development, artificial intelligence can become an important strategic resource to promote the leapfrog development of science and technology, industrial optimization and upgrading, and the overall leap of productivity. Whether it is enterprises or local governments, only by focusing, can artificial intelligence be promoted to match market demand, integrate into the real economy, and climb the “Mount Everest” of science and technology and industry；only by being humble, strengthening the basic research and development of artificial intelligence, cultivating industry talents, optimizing the production and operation of hardware and software environment, and handling the legal, safety, moral ethics, governance development of artificial intelligence, can artificial intelligence really provide new momentum for high-quality development.
The new round of global scientific and technological revolution and industrial transformation are changing rapidly. We need to identify changes accurately, respond to changes scientifically, and take the initiative to seek changes. Not only with telescope to accurately grasp the global artificial intelligence development trend, also a microscope to focus on artificial intelligence in line with actual needs, promoting the deep integration of the digital economy and the real economy.
