Sino-Ger­man cen­ter in Bei­jing demon­strates ap­pli­ca­tions of the lat­est tech­nol­ogy

bil­lion; 3.1 bil­lion eu­ros; £2.7 bil­lion) and is ex­pected to reach about 38 bil­lion yuan by the end of 2018.

More than 100 big data sci­en­tists, en­trepreneurs and in­dus­try in­sid­ers par­tic­i­pated in the Sino-Ger­man Smart Data Fo­rum in Bei­jing to dis­cuss the ap­pli­ca­tion and re­search of ar­ti­fi­cial in­tel­li­gence tech­nol­ogy.

Dur­ing the fo­rum, the Ar­ti­fi­cial In­tel­li­gence Tech­nol­ogy Cen­ter, a Sino-Ger­man re­search in­sti­tute on AI tech­nol­ogy, was also launched in the Vpark. Uszko­r­eit, its chief sci­en­tist, says the in­sti­tute will use the ad­vanced AI and big data tech­nolo­gies and projects to help com­pa­nies, such asJD.com, one ofChina’s largest in­ter­net com­pa­nies, to im­prove the ap­pli­ca­tion and in­no­va­tion of their AI tech­nolo­gies.

Sheng Licheng, deputy di­rec­tor of the Bei­jing Eco­nomic-Tech­no­log­i­cal Devel­op­ment Area Ad­min­is­tra­tion Com­mit­tee, says that in the fu­ture, the in­dus­trial, so­cial and eco­nomic devel­op­ment sec­tors will seek the sup­port of AI tech­nol­ogy.

Ad­di­tion­ally, in de­vel­op­ing AI in­dus­tries, the in­te­grated cir­cuit, sen­sor, in­ter­net and big data sec­tors will be very im­por­tant, he says.

Since AI tech­nol­ogy is well-de­vel­oped in Ger­many, the ex­changes and co­op­er­a­tion of tech­nolo­gies and prod­ucts should be strength­ened in the fu­ture, Sheng says.

“AI is the di­rec­tion for fu­ture devel­op­ment and im­por­tant for all coun­tries’ devel­op­ment,” he adds.
