Sci­ence fo­rum an­nounces list of hot is­sues in in­for­ma­tion tech­nol­ogy in­no­va­tions

Global Times US Edition - - BIZUPDATE -

A Chi­nese sci­ence fo­rum has re­leased a list of 10 “fore­front hotspot is­sues” in the in­for­ma­tion tech­nol­ogy sec­tor in­clud­ing au­tonomous driv­ing and cer­tain types of ar­ti­fi­cial in­tel­li­gence, ac­cord­ing to me­dia re­ports.

The list was re­leased at an in­for­ma­tion and sci­ence fo­rum dur­ing the 2019 an­nual meet­ing of the China As­so­ci­a­tion for Sci­ence and Tech­nol­ogy, do­mes­tic news por­tal chi­nanews. com re­ported on Sun­day from Harbin, North­east China’s Hei­longjiang Prov­ince.

The re­search and mar­ket ap­pli­ca­tion of au­tonomous driv­ing ve­hi­cles’ con­trol op­er­at­ing systems was one of the 10 high­lighted is­sues.

Ac­cord­ing to the fo­rum, the au­tonomous driv­ing op­er­at­ing sys­tem is a “ma­jor strate­gic de­mand” of China and the coun­try’s au­to­mo­bile in­dus­try.

It is also the “core” of China’s so­lu­tions to the most crit­i­cal strate­gic prob­lems in the coun­try.

Do­mes­tic in­dus­try gi­ants are un­der­tak­ing re­search into re­lated tech­nolo­gies.

On Fri­day, Chi­nese car maker Dongfeng Mo­tor Corp an­nounced plans to set up an in­no­va­tion lab­o­ra­tory in part­ner­ship with China’s in­ter­net gi­ant Ten­cent to re­search cut­ting-edge car tech­nolo­gies in­clud­ing au­tonomous driv­ing and in­tel­li­gent connected ve­hi­cles.

The fo­rum also in­cluded nat­u­ral lan­guage un­der­stand­ing on the list, say­ing that re­search in this area will be of great sig­nif­i­cance to safe­guard the se­cu­rity of China’s na­tional in­for­ma­tion con­tent.

Other tech­nolo­gies such as the in­te­gra­tion of ar­ti­fi­cial in­tel­li­gence and bi­o­log­i­cal in­tel­li­gence and in­ter­fer­o­met­ric op­ti­cal imag­ing tech­nol­ogy were on also placed the list.
