Liu Qingfeng, chairman of iFlytek: President Xi’s speech is a great encouragement to the artificial intelligence industry

Liu Qingfeng said that President Xi Jinping specifically mentioned artificial intelligence in his speech, which is a huge encouragement to the artificial intelligence technology and industry. This reminds me of the high affirmation and ardent encouragement of President Xi when he inspected the demonstration of iFLYTEK’s artificial intelligence technology products on April 26. Artificial intelligence is one of the greatest dreams of mankind. It will be the technological revolution that will have the greatest impact on human economic development in the next three decades, and will also have a profound revolution in human social life.

Artificial intelligence is also a strong technology field, and we must adhere to the source of technological innovation in order to gain the global voice. After President Xi visited iFlytek, he specifically mentioned the key source and core technology, and it is impossible to rely on others. In the next 5-10 years, artificial intelligence will be ubiquitous like water and electricity, and penetrate into every corner of social life. If China wants to change its low-end position in global value chain production in the past three decades, it must gain a global voice in the field of artificial intelligence. Artificial intelligence is not only a matter related to a certain enterprise or industry, but also an overall strategic direction related to the great rise of the Chinese nation.

Chinese artificial intelligence companies and research institutes represented by iFLYTEK have attracted increasing attention around the world. In recent years, iFLYTEK has won the first place in the world in international competitions of intelligent speech technology and machine translation technology, and this year it won the first place in the global artificial intelligence competition Winograd. The number of third-party entrepreneurial teams surrounding the iFLYTEK AI platform has reached 160,000, more than double the number of the same period last year, and the number of daily visits has exceeded 2.5 billion. We are very confident that through key source technological innovation and the creation of industrial ecology, China will win the right to speak and dominate the new pattern of the global artificial intelligence industry. At the same time, China can further leverage the advantages of the national system to further promote the development of the artificial intelligence industry. This time, the general secretary specifically proposed artificial intelligence, which is very wise and far-sighted.

Artificial intelligence will greatly improve the production efficiency of society, and the quantity and quality of social wealth creation will increase exponentially. At the same time, artificial intelligence will also replace most of the existing labor force and subvert many current industries. It is not only the huge opportunity we face today, but also the huge challenge we face. We must increase investment as a national strategy from today. In April this year, under the organization of the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, iFLYTEK has led the release of the “Shenzhen Declaration on Artificial Intelligence” on behalf of China’s industry sector, which proposes from the aspects of source technological innovation, industrial ecology creation, standard formulation, laws and regulations, as well as humanities and ethics. value proposition.

The historical mission of iFLYTEK is to enable machines to listen and speak, understand and think, and use artificial intelligence to build a better world. We believe that artificial intelligence is to serve and help human beings, not to subvert and dominate human beings in the future. Artificial intelligence will free human beings from complex physical and mental work, and can better develop the earth and explore the universe in the future. Although artificial intelligence will replace jobs in many industries, it will also create hundreds of millions of new jobs.For example, when domestic serviceRobotWhen popularized, there may be more than one Robot in each family, and behind each Robot is a brand new industrial chain.
