Multinational artificial intelligence industry accelerates development

  Artificial intelligence is an important driving force leading a new round of technological revolution and industrial transformation in the world, and it is profoundly changing people’s production and lifestyles. Countries have introduced relevant policies and measures to promote the integration of artificial intelligence technology and applications with the traditional economy, and promote the accelerated development of the artificial intelligence industry.
  At present, emerging information technologies represented by artificial intelligence (AI) are booming, and artificial intelligence applications are accelerating their popularization, especially in the fields of professional services such as healthcare, education, finance, security and defense. A recent study by consulting firm McKinsey found that since the epidemic prevention and control, the traditional economy has accelerated its intelligent transformation and accelerated the transformation of new technologies represented by artificial intelligence. It is estimated that by 2030, about 30% of jobs will be automated, Intelligent.
  Speed research and development of intelligent robots show their skills
  Korea MBN TV station in 2020 November 6 launch their first AI anchor. The AI ​​anchor, who looks almost exactly the same as a real person, mimics the voice and intonation of a human being, and smoothly broadcasts the main news of the day and several quick news. MBN TV station stated that artificial intelligence anchors can quickly broadcast news content to viewers in emergencies such as disasters, and can continue to work around the clock, saving a lot of manpower, time and costs.
  Germany’s artificial intelligence medical robot “Ada” has always attracted attention. When people enter symptoms in the “Ada” application interface, “Ada” will analyze and evaluate the patient’s symptoms through artificial intelligence algorithms and give treatment recommendations. “Ada”‘s “talent” for diagnosis and treatment stems from the knowledge and experience of more than 70 doctors, mathematicians, data experts and computer scientists. Nathart, the head of the technology company responsible for the development of “Ada”, said: “We have spent 7 years focusing on researching artificial intelligence data processing issues, and have built a global network of medical experts to provide medical support.” At present, the world has More than 3 million people have used “Ada”. In 2017, the start-up received 40 million euros in investment.
  In November 2019, Japan’s NTT Corporation and Japan’s National Institute of Informatics announced that the artificial intelligence technology they developed challenged the Japanese “College Entrance Examination” English written test with a full score of 200, and achieved a high score of 185. NTT said that they have been committed to improving artificial intelligence’s automatic answering technology for English written test questions, and to improve their natural language processing knowledge acquired through deep learning. Since 2011, Japan’s National Institute of Informatics and the University of Tokyo have jointly initiated artificial intelligence projects to test the extent to which artificial intelligence can simulate human thinking and problem-solving capabilities.
  Not long ago, the 2nd EU Artificial Intelligence Alliance Conference focused on showing a number of typical cases, introducing how artificial intelligence application technology can help epidemic prevention and control. For example, training intelligent robots to take care of patients with new coronary pneumonia, using artificial intelligence systems to analyze patients’ lung CT, to reduce the work pressure of medical staff. Su Aiteng, chairman and professor of the Medical Imaging Research Center of Leuven University in Belgium, said that practice has proved that artificial intelligence can analyze lung CT more effectively than radiologists.
  Promote the introduction of multi-national industrial development policy
  in recent years, more and more countries introduce policies to support the development of artificial intelligence. The European Union released the “Artificial Intelligence White Paper” in February 2020 to promote the development of the artificial intelligence industry. In the past three years, EU funding for artificial intelligence research and innovation has increased to 1.5 billion euros, a year-on-year increase of 70%. The EU also recently proposed a major special grant to support artificial intelligence research projects under the “Digital Europe” program. The EU hopes to attract more than 20 billion euros of investment in the field of artificial intelligence every year in the next 10 years.
  France issued the “French Artificial Intelligence Strategy” in May 2018, urging research institutions to commercialize artificial intelligence research and development results from the policy level. The French government plans to invest 1.5 billion euros in the development of the artificial intelligence industry by the end of 2022. In 2019 alone, there were 102 newly registered artificial intelligence companies in France.
  In December 2019, the South Korean government issued the “National Strategy for Artificial Intelligence”, proposing 100 topics in nine fields, and plans to raise South Korea’s competitiveness in the field of artificial intelligence to the forefront of the world by 2030. The South Korean government strives to successfully build an artificial intelligence development platform and fully open public data by 2021, establish a Gwangju artificial intelligence park by 2024, and invest about 1 trillion won (approximately US$1) in the research and development of a new generation of integrated artificial intelligence chips by 2024. 1090 won).
  In June 2019, the Japanese government issued the “Artificial Intelligence Strategy 2019”, which aims to attract talents from around the world and enhance the competitiveness of the country’s artificial intelligence industry. In December 2019, the University of Tokyo and SoftBank Corporation signed an agreement, announcing that they will jointly build the world’s top artificial intelligence research institute, dedicated to the basic research and applied research of artificial intelligence. SoftBank will invest 20 billion yen (1 U.S. dollar equals 104 yen) for related research in the next 10 years to promote the development of artificial intelligence research and related industries in Japan.
  A bright future useful economic efficiency
  experts said, the future of global sustainable growth is increasingly dependent on the value of data created, and artificial intelligence digital economy is one of the most important application of technology. Artificial intelligence will do a lot in precision agriculture, telemedicine, and autonomous driving.
  The latest research by PricewaterhouseCoopers pointed out that by 2030, with the use of artificial intelligence technology innovative products and efficiency improvement, the global economic aggregate is expected to increase by 13.4 trillion euros. The study believes that the productivity of most industries in Germany, especially the medical, energy and automotive industries, will be significantly improved due to the application of artificial intelligence technology. It is expected that the German economy will achieve an additional value added of 11.3% by 2030. The South Korean government predicts that if the measures related to the artificial intelligence national strategy are effectively implemented, by 2030, South Korea will create 455 trillion won economic benefits in the field of artificial intelligence.
  The Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry of Japan conducted a survey of about 2,000 small and medium-sized enterprises and companies that provide artificial intelligence services in the manufacturing and construction industries, and screened out the businesses that can be replaced by artificial intelligence. The economic benefit of 11 trillion yen can be solved to a certain extent, which can solve the labor gap caused by the declining birthrate and the aging population.
  Kim Si-ho, a professor at Yonsei University in South Korea, pointed out that with the development of the artificial intelligence industry, governments of various countries need to study various new issues that may arise, including the disappearance of basic labor-centric jobs, the security of artificial intelligence services, and data security. , To study coping strategies and necessary legal and system revisions in advance.
