Experts say more work is needed in AI

China has published the majority of AI research articles worldwide, while US AI research is more effective, an AI development report released in Shanghai on Friday has been declared.

From 2013 to 2018, more than 300,000 articles on artificial intelligence were published worldwide, of which 74,000 Chinese researchers and 52,000 were published by their US counterparts. USA USA AND EE. USA Companies and funds said in the report that there is a lack of basic theoretical research in China.

The report was compiled by the AI ​​Development Research Center, established last year by the Ministry of Science and Technology.

“China and the United States are two main pillars of the global AI research network, and AI research has increasingly helped cooperation between the two countries: the relationship between them is the strongest,” said Li Shikown, Deputy Director of the Center. . “But more and more countries have felt the importance of artificial intelligence and have paid a lot of attention to this area.”

According to the report, 12 countries announced their national AI strategies in 2018, which includes the United States, Germany and the United Kingdom, and 11 other countries are in the process of developing their national AI strategies.

The report says the weakness of AI research in China lies in inadequate cooperation between universities and industries, while Israel and the United States are at the forefront in this regard.

“Artificial intelligence research in China is very limited within universities, resulting in low rates of transfer of technology from research to commercial products,” said Lee.

Wang Yingchun, director of the Shanghai Science and Technology Development Research Center, said the technology has spread in the Yangtze River Delta.

“Wang’s teams said that technology teams from Shanghai universities start a business in Suzhou, Zhejiang province, and a lot is happening now,” said Wang.

“And in the integrated development of the field, there is a plan to create data infrastructures, such as cloud computing and data centers.”

The report also examined AI education in China, which has started at all levels. More than 30 universities have opened IA schools and 75 have established careers in interdisciplinary careers with IA or AI.

China’s first high school textbook on AI was published last year by East China Normal University, and 40 high schools across the country have participated in a pilot program to teach AI to their students.

The publication of the report was part of the Pujiang Innovation Forum, a major annual event in Shanghai for the exchange of science and technology innovation between China and the rest of the world. Approximately 150 guest speakers from 23 countries and regions will lecture at 16 different forums through Sunday this year.
