Bei­jing eyes be­com­ing global ro­bot­ics in­no­va­tion hub

Fiji Sun - - China News - China Daily

“It is im­por­tant to en­hance the key tech­nolo­gies in the ro­bot­ics sec­tor to pro­mote the over­all ar­ti­fi­cial in­tel­li­gence in­dus­try de­vel­op­ment,” said Chen Jin­ing, mayor of the city, at the open­ing cer­e­mony of the World Robot Con­fer­ence held in the Yizhuang eco­nomic de­vel­op­ment zone in Bei­jing’s Dax­ing district from August 20 to 25.

The cap­i­tal is also boost­ing its ro­bot­ics in­dus­try’s de­vel­op­ment in sev­eral fields to bring new op­por­tu­ni­ties to this sec­tor.

Wang Lan­fen, direc­tor of Huake Jingzhun, a com­pany which fo­cuses on neu­ro­sur­gi­cal robot de­vel­op­ment, said start­ing from a team of Ts­inghua Univer­sity grad­u­ates, the com­pany de­vel­oped its busi­ness in ar­ti­fi­cial in­tel­li­gence to ex­pand the Chi­nese-made robot busi­ness to the world. Zhao Xing­mei, project man­ager of the Bei­jing Med­i­cal Ro­bot­ics In­dus­try In­no­va­tion Cen­tre, said es­tab­lished last year, the cen­tre played an im­por­tant role as a bridge to con­vert the ideas from uni­ver­si­ties and en­trepreneur­s to prac­tice.

“It acts as a plat­form for re­searchers to give them more op­por­tu­ni­ties in de­vel­op­ing their sci­en­tific re­search achieve­ments,” she said.

Hao Xudong, ex­ec­u­tive direc­tor of the Geek+ com­pany, said since it be­came more and more dif­fi­cult for the lo­gis­tics in­dus­try to hire work­ers, set­ting up in­tel­li­gent ro­bots is es­pe­cially im­por­tant in the in­dus­try.

“The ef­fi­ciency of the par­cel im­dus­try im­proves about three to four times when the lo­gis­tics ro­bots are put into use,” Hao said.

“Many coun­tries, like Ja­pan, have also in­tro­duced our prod­ucts on their assem­bly lines.”

Ma­chines on dis­play at the World Robot Con­fer­ence in China can fly, swim and even do brain surgery.
