Resuming production and resuming the "new infrastructure" to speed up
  what    artificial intelligence can do

  "This sudden outbreak is a catastrophe for mankind, and it is also a rare new opportunity for the development of the artificial intelligence industry." Li Guojie, academician of the Chinese Academy of Engineering, put forward such a view at the second frontier technology forum held recently.

  Since the outbreak of the New Coronary Pneumonia epidemic, the emerging technologies represented by artificial intelligence have been particularly dazzling, and new demands and innovative factors such as online education, remote office, and online medical care have emerged, as an important part of the "new infrastructure", Can artificial intelligence provide a scientific and technological cure for the global economic recovery after the epidemic?

  In Li Guojie's view, the application of artificial intelligence technology that performed well during the epidemic, such as contactless automatic temperature measurement, epidemic tracking, automatic question answering of computers and residents in outbreak investigation, etc., are mostly application scenarios that have accumulated more data in the past. Due to the lack of sufficient labeled data for the detection of the spread of viruses and the traceability of the source of the virus, the effect is worse.

  Li Guojie said that in this epidemic, smart products have won more trust among the user community, the role of artificial intelligence in empowering various industries has begun to appear, and the role of artificial intelligence applications in enhancing national governance capabilities is becoming more and more obvious. .

  Cai Zixing, a lifetime fellow of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), believes that artificial intelligence has great potential in stabilizing investment, promoting consumption, helping upgrades, cultivating new kinetic energy for economic development, and creating new forms of smart economy. , New energy vehicle charging piles and other new infrastructure areas have a major role in promoting, and will also lay the foundation for digital intelligent transformation in many fields.

  "The acceleration of the'new infrastructure' has brought great opportunities to promote the development of artificial intelligence. We must seize the opportunity to seize the opportunity and accelerate the development of new artificial intelligence infrastructure to lay a solid foundation for economic transformation and upgrade." Cai Zixing said.

  But in this process, known as the "troika" of artificial intelligence-algorithms, computing power, and data have reached a weak moment, deep learning is still relying on big data and large computing power in the industry. Shan Shiguang, a researcher at the Institute of Computing Technology of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, said: "The upgrade of artificial intelligence capabilities must rely on the upgrade of artificial intelligence methodology."

  In fact, in the application of artificial intelligence, the public has high expectations. However, there is still a certain distance between "ideal" and "reality".

  Li Xiuquan, a researcher at the China Academy of Science and Technology Development Strategy, believes that the construction of new artificial intelligence infrastructures such as public artificial intelligence computing power, open platforms, and knowledge centers should not only help the landing of technology and accelerate technological breakthroughs, but also promote the sharing and development of different groups. Play an important role. "Improving the innovation conditions of SMEs and entrepreneurs, and improving the intelligent infrastructure in underdeveloped areas, can intelligent transformation move towards inclusive development and shared development."

  Peng Silong, a researcher at the Institute of Automation of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, said: "How to enable low-end traditional industries to achieve intelligent upgrading and transformation at the lowest cost may be a very important direction for the future development of artificial intelligence."
