According to reports, Shanghai implements the strategic plan for the development of the new generation of artificial intelligence in Shanghai, and clearly puts forward the requirements for the formation of an alliance for the development of artificial intelligence in the "implementation measures for speeding up the development of high quality artificial intelligence." Therefore, in order to further gather the global artificial intelligence talents, break through the key core technologies, promote the demonstration application of artificial intelligence, and speed up the construction of the national artificial intelligence development highland, under the guidance of the Shanghai Economic and Information Commission, Shanghai Yidi (Group) United Huawei, Tencent, SAIC Group, Shanghai Electric, Guotai Junan, Pacific Insurance, Zhang Jiang Group, Lingang Group, Shanghai Mobile, Shanghai Telecom, Shanghai Unicom, Baidu, iFLYTEK, Shangtang Technology, According to Tu Technology, Shenlan Science and Technology, Youzhide, Zhizhen Intelligence, first Pacific Science and Technology Group, Microsoft Institute of Asian Research (Shanghai), ABB and other 22 units, Jointly initiated the establishment of the Shanghai artificial Intelligence Development Alliance. C.S. Wu, chairman of Shanghai Yilidian Group, the main sponsor of the alliance, said that the alliance will take serving Shanghai to build an artificial intelligence highland as its overall goal, and building a platform for political, industrial, academic, research, capital, and resource coordination as its main task. Taking the development of artificial intelligence professional service and communication at home and abroad as the main starting point, we should promote the organic coordination of artificial intelligence technology, industry and application in Shanghai, and actively create a comprehensive ecological environment conducive to the development of artificial intelligence.


It is understood that the future alliance will take the Council as the core body and set up a number of professional committees in different fields of industry, focusing on the three main themes of "empowerment, innovation and cooperation". To promote and improve the influence and voice of Shanghai and even China in the global artificial intelligence industry, to carry out related work in the aspects of industrial promotion, application capabilities, talent gathering, think tank research, resource sharing, brand co-building, and so on, to jointly promote and improve the influence and voice of Shanghai and even China in the global artificial intelligence industry. Efforts will be made to build the alliance into a platform for the integration of artificial intelligence at home and abroad. As an important event of the alliance brand and WAIC(World Artificial Intelligence Conference), the World artificial Intelligence Innovation Competition (AIWIN) held the launch ceremony at the same time. The innovation competition will focus on the theme of "enlightening intelligence and sailing for the future", aiming at excavating excellent artificial intelligence projects, building global event brands, and providing strong support for Shanghai to build artificial intelligence heights.

According to the Preparatory Secretariat of the Alliance, after the establishment of the Alliance, the membership of the Alliance will be further expanded. Enterprises and institutions that widely absorb artificial intelligence technology, industry, application, research, investment and financing and other aspects of the innovation chain, and continue to strengthen and do the related work of artificial intelligence in Shanghai, are facing the whole country and even the whole world to widely absorb artificial intelligence technology, industry, application, research, investment and financing and so on. Zhang Ying, chief engineer of the Municipal Economic and Information Commission, said that the development of Shanghai's artificial intelligence industry can not be separated from the coordination and collective efforts of all levels inside and outside the industry. This time, the establishment of artificial intelligence development alliance in Shanghai will provide strong support for the expansion of 'circle of friends' in Shanghai's artificial intelligence industry, and jointly build Shanghai into a leading new high-quality development of artificial intelligence in China.
