Ministry of Industry and Information Technology: Accelerating the integration of artificial intelligence and the real economy in my country

At present, the integration of artificial intelligence and the real economy has made positive progress. A number of typical application scenarios of artificial intelligence have been established in key industries, and a number of typical industry solutions have been formed. Ren Aiguang, deputy director of the Science and Technology Department of the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, revealed that the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology will give full play to the role of the artificial intelligence pilot area, and accelerate the integration and application of artificial intelligence in manufacturing, transportation, medical care, education, finance, etc. Demonstration and promotion of new products.

Preliminary formation of a complete industrial chain

“Under the guidance of system layout and system development strategy, my country’s artificial intelligence industry has initially formed a ‘three-in-one’ development pattern of key common technology research and development, innovative product application, and emerging industry cultivation.” Yang Chunli, deputy director of the China Software Evaluation Center, said.

The scale of the artificial intelligence industry is growing rapidly. At present, the scale of my country’s artificial intelligence core industry exceeds 400 billion yuan, an increase of more than 6 times compared with the same period in 2019.

Enterprises with innovative vitality and international competitiveness are rising rapidly. At present, the number of AI core enterprises in my country exceeds 3,000, an increase of 15% over the same period in 2019. A number of leading companies and brands have emerged in the fields of drones, speech recognition, and image recognition, and a number of leading companies have emerged in emerging fields such as intelligent robots, smart cars, wearable devices, and virtual reality.

The innovation capability of the AI ​​industry has been significantly enhanced. Key technologies such as artificial intelligence chips and deep learning algorithms for vision, speech, natural language processing and other fields have accelerated iterative innovation, a number of smart chips have made important breakthroughs, and the innovation capabilities of iconic products such as smart terminals and smart robots have continued to increase.

The layout of new infrastructure has been gradually improved. By the end of June this year, the number of 5G base stations in my country has reached 1.854 million, 150 large-scale industrial Internet platforms have been cultivated, and more than 78 million units (sets) of connected industrial equipment have been established. A number of public service platforms such as computing power centers and data centers have been built across the country, and the quantity and quality have been continuously improved.

“In order to support the development of the artificial intelligence industry, all localities actively provide application scenarios according to the characteristics of the industry, and accelerate the speed of technological innovation. The application of artificial intelligence technology has brought profound changes to production, life, and social management. Manufacturing, logistics, business, medical, film and television, retail, The level of intelligence in games, finance, cultural tourism, etc. has been continuously improved.” said Liu Xu, senior vice president of Zhongcheng Think Tank.
