The Chinese government has raised AI to the national strategic level. In July 2017, the State Council issued the new generation of artificial intelligence development plan, which clearly pointed out the strategic goal of the new generation of artificial intelligence development in three steps. By 2030, China’s artificial intelligence theory, technology and application will reach the world’s leading level and become the world’s major artificial intelligence innovation center.
China’s artificial intelligence is weak in talent reserve
In September 1981, more than 300 scientific and technological workers from all over the country attended the inaugural meeting of China Society for artificial intelligence (CAAI) in Changsha. Since then, China’s artificial intelligence has officially entered the development stage. Compared with the development of AI in China and the world in 2019, China ranks first in the world in terms of the number of Al related papers published, the number of enterprises, the total amount of financing, the industrial scale, the number of patent applications, etc., and has full competitiveness of the city airport.
China’s talent reserve is relatively weak, but it has been making up for its shortcomings. At present, there are 35 colleges and universities in China offering al major, international exchange and international talent introduction are also deepening, and a large number of practitioners will enter the market in the next five years.
Focusing on application rather than basic R & D is also an inherent problem in China’s artificial intelligence industry. With the emergence of patent competition between China and the United States, the government has begun to pay attention to the cultivation of Al based start-ups. The capital side also pays more attention to the development of Al chip, machine learning algorithm, data processing and other upstream enterprises in the industrial chain, especially the technology giants With the efforts of all parties, China’s al market is on the rise from local to overall development, and the industry has a good prospect.
Artificial intelligence enables real economy
In recent years, it has become the core of AI technology to find landing application scenarios in the real economy. According to the data of iResearch database, the market scale of China’s AI enabled real economy will reach 25.1 billion yuan in 2018, and the enabling value is expected to exceed 100 billion yuan in 2021. Artificial intelligence technology and traditional industry business model and business process have a substantial integration, and a new industrial landscape in the era of intelligent economy has initially appeared.
Artificial intelligence at this stage mainly enables the field of public security
According to iResearch’s database data, AI + security accounted for more than 50% of AI enabled real economy in 2019, followed by AI + finance and AI + marketing, accounting for 15.8% and 11.6% respectively. Forward looking analysis, on the one hand, is due to the large number of state-owned enterprises in the field of security, which is easy to be promoted by early policy, on the other hand, is the demand of smart city for public safety. It is preliminarily estimated that the vitality of private enterprises will gradually appear, and the enabling value of AI + marketing and AI + finance will continue to improve in the future.
Internet companies are the largest AI investors, mainly in computer vision
According to airy data analysis, in 2019, China’s science and technology enterprises will invest about 400.5 billion yuan in technology R & D, of which 9.3% will be invested in artificial intelligence algorithm R & D, exceeding 37 billion yuan, and most of the investment will come from Internet technology companies. Computer vision, speech recognition / speech synthesis and natural language processing accounted for 22.5%, 2.3% and 7.1% of Al algorithm application fields respectively. Among them, computer vision related algorithm R & D investment accounted for the largest proportion, which was positively correlated with the number of vision related start-ups, industrial demand and policy orientation. Computer vision is still the most representative al application field in China Technology.
The above data comes from the analysis report on market outlook and investment strategic planning of China’s artificial intelligence industry of foresight Industry Research Institute. Meanwhile, foresight Industry Research Institute provides solutions such as industrial big data, industrial planning, industrial declaration, industrial park planning, and industrial investment promotion.
