Abstract : China is accelerating the development of artificial intelligence (AI) industry, according to a report released last Wednesday at the online closing ceremony of the 4th World Intelligence Congress.

BEIJING, June 28 (Xinhua) -- China is accelerating the development of artificial intelligence (AI) industry, according to a report released last Wednesday at the online closing ceremony of the 4th World Intelligence Congress held in Tianjin. 

The report showed that local governments in China issued a total of 276 policies related to the development of AI industry in 2019 in addition to the 259 ones unveiled in 2018. 

The policies have covered a wide range of areas including smart government affairs, smart medical care, industrial Internet, smart manufacturing, smart Internet of Vehicles (IoV) and smart education.

In 2018, China had a total of 163 AI industrial parks. On this basis, 138 more industrial parks were added in 2019. 

"Through the planning and construction of industrial parks, a batch of important carriers for the development of AI industry will take shape in various regions, which can help lead regional industrial structural adjustment," said Liu Gang, chief economist at the Chinese Institute of New Generation Artificial Intelligence Development Strategies in Tianjin and director of the Economic Research Institute of Nankai University. 

At present, China's AI education are mainly concentrated in colleges in Beijing, Jiangsu Province, Shanghai,  Guangdong Province and Zhejiang Province. 

Liu Gang noted that Chinese colleges and universities have initially formed a multi-level talent training system for AI basic theoretical research, technology development and technology application. (Edited by Zhang Yuan with Xinhua Silk Road, zhangyuan11@xinhua.org)
