China is building the biggest AI(artificial intelligence) Park in the Bejieng. It will be home to more than 400 businesses. China aims to be the world leader in the AI and data sciences. given the recent trend in the automation and artificial intelligence, there is a constant race between different countries to be the best in the sector.
While it is amply clear from the fact that, recently China announced its plan to become a world leader in artificial intelligence and big data. The research park is the first step towards the creation of their Big AI dream. It is estimated to be generating the revenue of worth 50 billion yuan. The giant park is dedicated to the AI and allied services. Recently, Google also announced to open an AI lab in China.
Though Google Search Engine is banned in China, this step of Google is seen trying to source local talent from the china, which seems to be making the good headstart in the sector.The overall contribution to the AI world is dominated by the Chinese and US scientist, while companies have been increasingly employing the capability of AI in recent times. Zhongguancun Development Group will be the developer of the Park.
They are aiming to partner with local and foreign universities to further the research of applications for greater human good. Spread across 54 hectares, it will be a centre for the development of the AI future in China. Many top Internet companies of China have already invested billions of dollars into the research and development of the next technology. The USA which is considered a market leader in the field of Military applications of AI has ramped up its research and development in the universities.
China & AI
Many other countries remain far behind in the investment and vision related to this technology, which is considered to be the next revolution in the technology. But a very few of the experts are ready to believe in the dream of China dominating the space by 2030.
It has previously stated so in many other industries too but failed to deliver. What is needed is the strong foundational framework of national policy, to be included in the research university, which might help in its mission to become a dominant player by 2030. The recent development reflects the state of affairs in the technology space, which has become too crowded as more number of players are ready for their innovation.
The research Park may serve as a tool for the Chinese business, who are looking forward to trying an experiment with the latest technology. Baidu, the search giant of China has already set up its research center in silicon valley comprising of biggest names in the field.
We are yet to see the action on the field, but let’s hope that the technology utilized helps humankind in a positive way. While Trumpp administration is ambiguous about its future plan with technology, China has made a very bold statement by announcing the decision to create a giant park.
