A sharp growth curve highlights the “practical results” of the Shanghai Artificial Intelligence Industry in cultivating new opportunities in the crisis and opening a new Bureau in the changing situation: in the first quarter, the total revenue of 37 enterprises with feedback data increased by 31.6% year-on-year; In April, there were 33 feedback data, and the total revenue increased by 25.7% year-on-year; In May, a total of 12 enterprises fed back data, and the total revenue increased by 98.8% year-on-year.

Double horse dialogue of 2019 world Artificial Intelligence Conference

Three years ago, Shanghai issued an invitation to the World Conference on artificial intelligence, which was opened by the Huangpu River; Over the past three years, Shanghai has optimized the business environment, launched space carriers, actively opened the scene, and made great efforts to plant seeds. In the process of growing together with the AI industry, Shanghai has made great efforts, carefully settled, carefully supported and patiently arranged.

Foreign capital leaders such as Microsoft, Amazon and AstraZeneca, platform giants such as Alibaba, Tencent, Netease and Xiaomi, and industry champions such as Shangtang and Yitu have taken their own needs and integrated linkage in this highland. 2020 is the framework for Shanghai to build a science and innovation center with global influence. From foundation to application, from single point to system, from domestic platform to international cooperation, what kind of actual “report card” has Shanghai Artificial Intelligence Industry handed over? A week later, at the 2020 world artificial intelligence conference, I’ll see you in the cloud!

“AI in china”。

–Artificial intelligence will redefine all aspects of economic activities and stimulate new demand, new products, new technologies and new business models at the macro and micro levels. As the largest developing country in the world, China will seize the opportunity to promote major changes in its economic structure.

Chinese scientists published a panoramic paper on the development of AI in China for the first time in the international top academic journal Nature machine intelligence, which is a heavy voice to gather China’s strongest AI power.

Wutong Hui, the chairman of the academic committee of the alliance and Pan Yunhe, the Chinese Academy of engineering, is the lead author of the AI, the 12 member of the leading universities in the leading universities of the Zhejiang University, Shanghai Jiao Tong University, Chinese University Hong Kong, Tsinghua University, China, China, science and Technology University, and krypton technology. Jointly written by momenta, meituan review and other leading AI enterprises in various fields.

“Wutong Hui”, the newly born AI organization born in Shanghai, originated from the 2018 World Conference on artificial intelligence, and now becomes the new name card of “AI in Shanghai”.

The epidemic is a practical test for artificial intelligence. A number of AI enterprises bred and developed in Shanghai have been on the front line since then. They are not only reinforcements in the anti epidemic battlefield, but also backhands for economic recovery.

“Since the outbreak of the epidemic this year, in the work of epidemic prevention and control, Shanghai has deeply applied artificial intelligence technology to all links such as epidemic situation research and judgment, transmission path analysis, accurate prevention and control, effective treatment and follow-up treatment. By providing more accurate and effective scientific decision-making basis, it has improved the efficiency of reception, consultation and diagnosis, and strengthened remote and online technical services and robot intelligent operation And so on, providing solid technical support for epidemic prevention and control, “said Wu Jincheng, director of Shanghai Economic and Information Technology Commission.

For example, Shanghai novel coronavirus pneumonia, based on the CT intelligent product of the “eye eye intelligent platform”, can identify the face and body location information without the need of taking off the mask. It can realize intelligent positioning and placement, accurately locate the pneumonia disease, and put it into use at the fire god Hill hospital, Wuhan many shelter hospitals, Shanghai public health center and a number of new crown pneumonia designated hospitals. It provides great help for suspected case screening, rapid diagnosis, condition tracking and evaluation.

The novel coronavirus pneumonia evaluation system, launched in Shanghai, is on line in Shanghai public health center. The advantage in speed is very obvious, and the quantitative analysis can be completed in only 2-3 seconds. If doctors use traditional software to manually outline CT images for quantitative evaluation, it often takes 2-3 hours.

For example, the artificial intelligence unmanned straddle carrier independently developed by Shanghai Xijing helped Zhenhua heavy industry in early March was officially delivered at the Stockholm Wharf in Sweden. The vehicle can also form an unmanned straddle transport fleet to complete the functions of accurate positioning, position tracking and track playback of relevant operation vehicles in the port. This is the first time that the unmanned product has been exported overseas, and it is also the first sea going project of large-scale artificial intelligence equipment in Shanghai after the outbreak.

He Renlong, chief planner of East China branch of China Academy of information and communications, said that compared with the consumer Internet industry rising due to SARS, the epidemic has opened a contactless era and set off the trend of “new digital infrastructure and online new economy”, which has also provided thousands of times the growth of huge data elements for the in-depth development and rapid iteration of artificial intelligence. “The large-scale application of artificial intelligence digital base will drive a larger and more sophisticated global division of labor and create new business opportunities and economic models”.

Over the past three years, the development of artificial intelligence industry in Shanghai has given a good answer: there are 1116 key enterprises. In 2019, the output value of Enterprises above designated size was about 147.7 billion yuan, an increase of 10.7% over 2018. A number of original leading enterprises such as Shangtang, Yitu, Bi Ren and krypton have emerged; Pudong Zhangjiang, Xuhui West Bank, Minhang Maqiao, Lingang New Area and other intelligent new landmarks have become the first choice for the industry to settle down; The signing of new projects such as Tencent Yangtze River Delta AI Supercomputing Center, Midea Group’s second headquarters project, artificial intelligence R & D center and Beiyang artificial intelligence town has been completed without slowing down in the epidemic.

The key to cultivating new opportunities in the crisis is a “new” word to make new technology and new economy better develop with high quality and high-density empowerment. It is necessary to find increment in newer fields and larger markets.

2019 world Artificial Intelligence Conference

“We still hope to do something different and discuss some issues that industry practitioners really care about,” Zhang Ying, deputy director of Shanghai Municipal Commission of economy and information technology, told reporters. For example, we put more emphasis on strengthening the foundation and laying a solid foundation; Pay more attention to the system application and make the scene detailed; Pay more attention to international cooperation and make the “circle of friends” bigger. “Many people in the industry say that Shanghai has really seized the opportunity of AI development and is willing to stay at the world artificial intelligence conference in the direction that the industry should discuss most; however, we still want to take another step forward to layout and try something that is still emerging now”.

For example, from application side innovation to foundation side consolidation. At the beginning of 2020, as a new R & D institution focusing on basic research, Shanghai Chizhi Research Institute was officially unveiled on the West Bank of Xuhui. Academician Yao Qizhi led the establishment. Relying on the good research foundation of Shanghai Universities and research institutions in mathematics, physics, computer and other disciplines, and based on the five research directions of artificial intelligence, modern cryptography, high-performance computing system, quantum computing and quantum artificial intelligence, physical devices and computing, it will gradually move to neuroscience, financial technology, medicine Information security and other cross cutting research directions.

“We hope to develop a new, multi-disciplinary and comprehensive talent training model and encourage high-density exchanges among talents from different disciplines.” academician Yao Qizhi said that the in-depth development of artificial intelligence requires strong basic research and a steady stream of innovative theories and core technologies. In AI tower, Alibaba, Huawei Microsoft and many other cutting-edge information science industry leaders are close to each other, and full opportunities for exchange and consultation will surely spark many basic research and application scenarios.

Another example is from a single point of breakthrough to a systematic scenario. Shanghai should be one of the first cities to open all kinds of application scenarios to local governments. It adopts the “show leadership” and dynamic release mechanism to solicit solutions from the world.

So far, Shanghai has opened two batches of scenes, with a total of 30 scenes, involving a total of 10 fields such as medical treatment, education, culture and tourism, urban management, justice and finance, attracting the participation of more than 150 overseas enterprises and 240 solutions.

Scenes such as Zhangjiang artificial intelligence island, Yangshan Port intelligent heavy truck, intelligent power inspection of the State Grid of the Expo, Shanghai Electric’s “Ai + industrial Internet” tumor hospital, intelligent judicial trial of the Municipal High Court, smart education of Shixi middle school, etc. are pioneering in subdivided industries. During the fight against the epidemic this year, two key scenes, namely, Shanghai public health clinical center and Shanghai Oriental Hospital’s Hubei medical team, were also built and operated.

During this year’s conference, a new batch of scenes will be officially released. “This time, we will choose some more complex, more systematic, richer applications and more accurate landing comprehensive scenarios to release, and integrate multiple intelligent technologies into one scheme.” Zhang Ying said that the “one network unified management” being built in Shanghai can also become a “test field” for artificial intelligence city level applications.

Another example is from the domestic platform to the international model “chorus”. The development of artificial intelligence (AI) has gradually moved from promoting the reform of production mode to promoting the adjustment of global production pattern.

This year’s conference was held in the form of cloud summit. There were only many overseas guests, including 7 Turing Award winners. Shanghai will more actively participate in the division of labor in the global industrial chain, jointly maintain the global industrial chain, integrate into the innovation ecology of international artificial intelligence, and jointly deal with the “big test” of the epidemic with countries all over the world.

Explore a “model room” for the construction of global smart cities, open new scenes for the transformation of the world economy, integrate with the global scientific and technological innovation system, and perspective the 2020 world artificial intelligence conference. Technology will make the world more “Ai”.

Aiming strategy source

In the eyes of many practitioners, greater Shanghai seems to have put down its stature.

“A start-up like us didn’t expect to enter the top office building at the beginning. After all, the operating income is still relatively small and is in the early investment stage.” Hu Xiaoping, deputy general manager of Feixi Technology Shanghai, told reporters.

The turning point occurred at the 2019 Industry Expo. When Xuhui District Science and Technology Commission learned about Feixi’s leading advantages in its field, it took the initiative to invite him to settle in the West Bank, and even provided some financial support to Feixi who was facing business pressure during the epidemic; The West Bank Group also opened a green channel for the first time, invited enterprises to settle in, and gave substantive help in decoration and property.

In fact, Shanghai, which has a higher degree of legalization and internationalization, is more rational, inclusive and embracing all rivers, has not changed. It is an industry with high technical threshold and many demand factors such as artificial intelligence, which matches the temperament of the city and is easy to “hit it off at once”.

“Relatively speaking, it is the world’s highest level venue, with complete industrial categories and high-end talent gathering, which meets the basic elements of the development needs of the artificial intelligence industry,” said Xu Li, CEO of Shangtang technology.

After long-term tracking, the reporter’s biggest feeling is that the basic advantages of relatively complete industrial categories give AI more “place to play” in Shanghai. Traditional industries such as iron and steel, Baosteel’s unmanned factories and industrial Internet are far ahead; For emerging industries such as blockchain, the “main network” at the bottom of the tree is also about to launch version 2.0.

With the system to protect “imagination”, Shanghai has issued a series of laws and regulations. The ecological action plan for innovation of artificial intelligence in Shanghai has been issued and implemented to promote the construction of national artificial intelligence “leading” track, and policies such as the measures for the management of open test scenarios of road traffic automatic driving in Shanghai (for Trial Implementation) are also being prepared and issued.

There are not only supporting policies, but also “real gold and silver” in Shanghai. During the closing ceremony of the conference last year, Shanghai released the action plan for building an artificial intelligence highland in Shanghai and building a first-class innovative ecology. In terms of industrial investment fund, Shanghai Artificial Intelligence industrial investment fund was established, with an initial scale of 10 billion yuan, and it is expected to form a 100 billion fund group through a market-oriented model. Now it is in hot progress.

Now, in some areas of Shanghai, with mobile phone operation, citizens can take unmanned online car Hailing for free. Street cameras automatically identify road garbage and bicycle parking through machine vision… People’s cities are built by the people, and people’s cities are for the people, “AI is a good booster to build a city into what people want. It not only enables high-quality economic development, but also better enables citizens to live a high-quality life, enables urban transformation and upgrading, and promotes the construction of a better home,” Wu Jincheng said.
