Xinhua Headlines: China advances to AI-powered future

(Xinhua/Yue Yuewei) TIANJIN, May 18 (Xinhua) -- On a stage, a grey human-sized robot named Titan sang the theme song of 'The Transformers' with moving lips while dancing to the tune, setting the audience on fire.

It's hard not to get emotional seeing the android rocking the beats dedicated to a fictional alien robot species, even for many of the cool-minded policymakers, researchers and entrepreneurs among the audience.

In July 2017, China issued a plan on new generation AI, according to which the industry should be a major new growth engine and have improved people's lives by 2020.

This year's WIC exhibition features AI in a wide variety of applications, such as smart homes, smart manufacturing, autonomous vehicles, health checks, education and city management.

'With the increasing presence of AI in people's lives, I think we have entered a time that companies can cash in on AI technology in 2019,' said Liu Qingfeng, chairman of voice-recognition giant iFlytek at WIC.

The scale of China's core AI industry reached 68.6 billion yuan (about 10 billion U.S. dollars) in 2018, up by over 75 percent year on year, according to Chinese Institute of Electronics.

Wang Zhigang, Minister of Science and Technology, urged participants to keep a 'rational attitude and cautiously positive view' towards AI, citing social ethics and social governance as posing potential challenges.

Institutions like Peking University are also starting to work in these fields, with an AI legal research center set up in 2017 and a prospective study on robot ethics standards published in 2018.

In the future, people could hop on a car without learning to drive and still be safe with an experienced driver assisting the process in real time, according to Lyu Dandan, a staff member with communication giant China Unicom at WIC.

When machines learn these languages, Reddy believes, they become a powerful tool for more people to access the huge knowledge base offered in the English language.

AI Innovation 2019: Companies Solidifying Competitive Advantage

It’s become impossible to separate business strategy from technological innovation, so everyone from retailers to healthcare professionals are investing heavily in tech solutions to help them market, improve offerings, and drive business.

The U.S. economy grew 2.9% last year, but technology is expensive and examples abound of companies that went bankrupt because they invested in the wrong technology—or the right one, but too soon.

It’s not a new concept—the term was originally coined in 1956—but developers finally have the processing power and data necessary to train programs to solve organizational problems and optimize efficiencies.

Machine learning has become increasingly embedded in many new technologies and solutions, delivering in-depth insight into business metrics and improving data-based decision making.

While even highly seasoned professionals are prone to under- or overstocking, machine-learning forecasting engines apply algorithms and hierarchies to predict future need with exceptional accuracy, minimizing inventory discrepancies and maximizing revenue.

Meanwhile, Salesforce debuted a CRM solution that uses machine learning to build comprehensive data-based customer profiles, identify crucial touch points, and uncover additional sales opportunities.

applies sophisticated voice recognition, autonomous movement, and machine learning to assist customers while simultaneously processing inventory and searching for product or price discrepancies.

And SPS Companies, Inc., a manufacturing and wholesale distributor, has improved talent metrics and completely redefined its employee experience by implementing an AI-based HCM solution that can identify employee pain points in real time.

This insight is increasingly valuable when coupled with analytical benchmarking, which allows organizations to compare themselves with their peers and competitors in terms of web traffic, customer churn rate, or employee engagement.

And the streaming giant, which has almost single-handedly disrupted the long-standing (and frequently lamented) cable industry, says an astonishing 80% of its viewed content results from their predictive recommended algorithms.

Shipping companies like Maersk are already experimenting with blockchain to track cargo and discourage tampering, while farmers (and even mega-chains like Walmart) are using the technology to follow and ensure quality of livestock transactions.
