AI Growth

ChinAfrica - - News Roundup -

China will boost growth of the ar­ti­fi­cial in­tel­li­gence (AI) sec­tor in the next three years, said a state­ment is­sued by the Na­tional De­vel­op­ment and Re­form Com­mis­sion. By 2018, China will build plat­forms for fun­da­men­tal AI re­sources and in­no­va­tion and make break­throughs in ba­sic core tech­nol­ogy, said the three-year im­ple­men­ta­tion pro­gram for “In­ter­net Plus” AI. The pro­gram will in­volve key projects, such as in­tel­li­gent home ap­pli­ances, smart au­to­mo­biles, in­tel­li­gent wear­able de­vices and ro­bots. Gov­ern­ment de­part­ments will map out sup­port­ive fis­cal poli­cies for the sec­tor and boost in­ter­na­tional co­op­er­a­tion, the state­ment said. China has been pro­mot­ing the ro­bot­ics in­dus­try as it strives to up­grade its man­u­fac­tur­ing sec­tor and ad­dress la­bor short­ages.
