China launches “Artificial Intelligence +”

At the Second session of the 14th National People’s Congress, Premier Li Qiang proposed in the 2024 Government Work report to deepen the research and development and application of big data and artificial intelligence, and carry out “artificial intelligence +”. This is the first time that China’s government work report has proposed “artificial intelligence +”.

Artificial intelligence has also become a focus of attention among the deputies and members of the National Two Sessions. From the sparks that may collide in different fields of artificial intelligence, to the latest progress in the global field of artificial intelligence, and even the regulation of artificial intelligence technology, the proposals and suggestions they bring cover all aspects of “artificial intelligence +”.
In the current in-depth development of a new round of scientific and technological revolution and industrial change, data has become a new factor of production, computing power has become a new basic energy, artificial intelligence has become a new production tool, and artificial intelligence technology such as large models has become the core force leading a new generation of industrial change.
Pan Helin, a member of the Information and Communication Economy Expert Committee of the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, pointed out that “artificial intelligence +” opens the door to new quality productivity. He stressed that the “artificial intelligence +” action was clearly carried out in this year’s government work report, symbolizing that artificial intelligence is becoming a key driver of industrial innovation and a key engine driving new quality productivity.
In the past year, China’s input and output in the field of AI technology have achieved remarkable results and fruitful results.
Minister of Science and Technology Yin Hejun introduced that from the input point of view, the annual national R&D investment exceeded 3.3 trillion yuan, an increase of 8.1% over the previous year, and the R&D investment intensity reached 2.64%, of which the basic research investment reached 221.2 billion yuan, an increase of 9.3% over the previous year. In terms of output, 950,000 technology contracts were signed in 2023, with the turnover reaching 6.15 trillion yuan, an increase of 28.6% over the previous year; The number of authorized invention patents reached 921,000, an increase of 15.3% over the previous year. In terms of results, a number of major original achievements have been made in the fields of quantum technology, integrated circuits, artificial intelligence, biomedicine, and new energy.
According to data released by the China Academy of Information and Communications Technology, the scale of China’s artificial intelligence core industry will reach 578.4 billion yuan in 2023, with a growth rate of 13.9%. According to data from the CCID Research Institute of the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, in 2023, the enterprise adoption rate of generative artificial intelligence in China has reached 15%, and the market size is about 14.4 trillion yuan.
“Artificial intelligence +” action wants to proceed smoothly, need a rapid growth of development momentum as fuel, but also need a broad market prospects as space, at present, everything is ready, only short of east wind.
Ai +, what is “+”?
Zhou Jianming, a member of the Standing Committee of the Information and Communication Technology Committee of the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, said that the “artificial intelligence +” action is intended to encourage all walks of life to pay attention to the application and landing of artificial intelligence technology. Enterprises need to integrate multi-party resources and better apply artificial intelligence technology in their own product research and development process to enhance their market competitiveness.
Artificial intelligence, + education, + hardware, + manufacturing, + general application… On the right side of the operator symbol, there can be infinite possibilities.
