The Ministry of industry and information technology recently issued a notice to support the establishment of national pilot zones for artificial intelligence innovation and application in Beijing, Tianjin (Binhai New Area), Hangzhou, Guangzhou and Chengdu. This is the list of the second batch of pilot zones issued by the Ministry of industry and information technology after Shanghai (Pudong New Area), Shenzhen and Jinan Qingdao. So far, the number of pilot areas for innovation and application of artificial intelligence in China has increased to 8.

The construction of national artificial intelligence innovation and application pilot zone is an important measure to implement the spirit of the Fifth Plenary Session of the 19th CPC Central Committee and the central economic work conference, implement the deployment of the seventh meeting of the Central Committee for comprehensively deepening reform, and promote the deep integration of artificial intelligence and the real economy by Ministry and province. In the construction of the pilot zone, we should adhere to the application of traction, open the scene to drive the industry landing; adhere to the reform and innovation, stimulate the vitality with new ideas and new mechanisms; adhere to the linkage between the Ministry and the province, form the work force with complementary advantages; adhere to the characteristic development, and develop the intelligent economy according to local conditions.

In the paper, the Ministry of industry and information technology stressed that the national pilot zone of artificial intelligence innovation and application in Beijing should combine the overall deployment of the construction of Beijing International Science and technology innovation center, give full play to the multiple advantages of original technology, industrial ecology, talent base and development environment, accelerate the research and development of core algorithms, basic software and hardware, accelerate the construction of intelligent infrastructure, and build a world leading artificial intelligence zone Can be the source of innovation. Focusing on key fields such as intelligent manufacturing, intelligent networked vehicles, smart city and “Winter Olympics of science and technology”, we should accelerate the construction and opening of deep application scenarios of artificial intelligence, optimize the governance environment, continue to promote the deep integration of artificial intelligence and real economy, and create demonstration areas and Reform pilot areas for high-quality development of super large smart cities.

Tianjin (Binhai New Area) National artificial intelligence innovation and application pilot zone should focus on the collaborative development strategy of Beijing, Tianjin and Hebei, face the practical needs of industrial intelligence transformation, government service upgrading and people’s livelihood quality improvement, give full play to the policy advantages of China (Tianjin) pilot Free Trade Zone, and promote the breakthrough development of intelligent manufacturing, intelligent port, intelligent community and other key fields. Efforts should be made to build the industrial cluster of basic parts of artificial intelligence and “artificial intelligence + information innovation”, build the common technology hard platform and innovation service soft platform, and promote the artificial intelligence industry to supplement and strengthen the chain.

Hangzhou National artificial intelligence innovation and application pilot zone should give full play to the basic advantages of urban digital governance and advanced manufacturing, and further deepen the application of artificial intelligence technology in urban management, intelligent manufacturing, intelligent finance and other fields. Through the reform and innovation measures, actively explore the governance mode and path of artificial intelligence in line with the national conditions, promote the safe and reliable promotion of new technologies and new products, and strive to create the output place of urban digital governance scheme, the supply place of intelligent manufacturing capacity, and the pioneer place of data use rules.

Guangzhou national pilot area of artificial intelligence innovation and application should closely meet the development requirements of Guangdong, Hong Kong and Macao Bay area, make full use of the conditions of complete industrial chain, collection of innovative elements and rich application scenarios, and build artificial intelligence and digital economy experimental area with high standards. Focus on the development of key intelligent devices, intelligent software, intelligent equipment and other core intelligent industries, face the key technology directions such as computer vision and key application fields such as industry and commerce, and constantly explore the deep application scenarios of artificial intelligence, so as to provide new momentum for Guangzhou to realize the new vitality of the old city and “four new brilliant”.

Chengdu’s national AI one should take the one belt, one road, the strategic hub and strategic location as the leading area, and grasp the opportunity of Shuangcheng economic circle in Chengdu Chongqing area. With AI as an important starting point, the focus will be on medical and financial industries, and the release of application scenarios will be released to promote the development of technology industry. Combined with the characteristics of the western region, we should actively explore and practice in policy, mechanism and mode innovation, create a dynamic industrial ecosystem and functional area, and radiate and drive the integrated development of regional artificial intelligence.

During the “fourteenth five year plan” period, the Ministry of industry and information technology will further strengthen cooperation with relevant provinces and cities, take the construction of pilot zone as an important carrier to promote the deep integration of artificial intelligence and real economy, continuously tap the “depth” of mechanism reform, enhance the “height” of innovation ability, accelerate the “speed” of application, enhance the “heat” of industrial agglomeration, and export experience, mode, products and services To provide strong support for high-quality economic development.
