AI technology in China: World’s first AI presenter unveiled in China
China Is Leading in Artificial Intelligence. Nowadays, China’s AI technology has penetrated into all walks of life, not long ago As China’s state-run news agency, Xinhua News Agency has debuted two news readers that use artificial intelligence to look and sound like the broadcaster’s real anchors. They look uncanny and sound robotic, but the system is still under development.
Let’s take a look at this world’s first AI presenter through the video below.
“AI Synthetic Anchor” is a synthetic news anchor jointly researched by Xinhua News Agency and Sogou. It uses the latest artificial intelligence technology (AI) to “replicate” the same “divided body” with the same broadcast capability as the live broadcaster. The same thing here does not simply mean copying the original broadcaster’s words, but to achieve more advanced autonomous expressions, actions (heads, gestures, blinks), etc., and can broadcast independently when the text is provided. Real people look no different. And also has the ability to broadcast 24 hours.
The development status of AI technology in China
China’s AI market growth rate is higher than global growth rate: In 2015, China’s artificial intelligence market was 1.2 billion yuan, of which speech recognition accounted for 60%, computer vision occupied 12.5%, and other identification parts were 27.5%. In the case of only considering speech recognition, computer vision, excluding hardware product sales revenue (such as robots, drones, smart home sales, etc.), information search, information distribution, accurate advertising push, etc., BBC expects global artificial intelligence market The scale will reach 119 billion yuan in 2020, with a compound growth rate of 19.7%. The scale of China’s artificial intelligence market will reach 9.1 billion in 2020, with a compound annual growth rate of about 50%.
Intelligent manufacturing has become the core strategy for the transformation and upgrading of countries. In 2012, the United States took the lead in proposing the “National Strategic Plan for Advanced Manufacturing”, followed by Germany, Japan, and the United Kingdom to propose “Industry 4.0”, “Technology Industry Alliance”, and “Industrial 2050 Strategy” respectively. Compared with the strategic planning of manufacturing transformation and upgrading in various countries, although each country focuses on different aspects, it is based on intelligent manufacturing as its strategic core, and continuously promotes the development of digital, network and intelligent manufacturing.
In 2015, China released the China-made 2025, a medium- and long-term development strategy for manufacturing countries, and strived to achieve the strategic goal of manufacturing a strong country through “three steps”. 1. Strive to enter the ranks of manufacturing powers in ten years; 2. To 2035 In the year, China’s manufacturing industry as a whole reached the middle level of the world’s manufacturing powers; 3. When the new China was founded 100 years ago, the status of a manufacturing powerhouse was more consolidated, and its comprehensive strength entered the forefront of the world’s manufacturing power.
