·Open ecology, innovation and wider application

Intel AI top 100 innovation incentive plan is an important part and action practice of Intel’s artificial intelligence innovation ecology. The plan was established in 2018 with the theme of “encouraging top 100 innovation and accelerating 100 billion industries”, and the goal is to accelerate 100 excellent AI innovation teams in three years. So far, 45 AI innovation companies have joined. In terms of application, the selected enterprises cover more than 20 artificial intelligence application fields, including smart city, smart factory, smart medical treatment, smart retail, smart education and smart finance; In terms of technology, it includes deep learning algorithm, natural language processing, 3D vision, IOT sensing and so on.

AI Baijia innovation incentive plan continuously provides innovation teams with all-round acceleration and cooperation, including POC test equipment or prototype, technical guidance and training, market promotion, ecological resources and industry customer docking. Through the accelerated growth of the first two phases, many innovation teams have made breakthroughs in many aspects.

With the in-depth support of Intel’s cross departmental and hardware and software collaboration, the product reasoning performance of the innovation team in the previous two phases increased by an average of more than 6 times, greatly improving the competitiveness of the enterprise’s overall solution.
