Fuzhou, April 4 (ZXS) -- The artificial intelligence revolution triggered by ChatGPT has become a hot topic at the sixth Digital China Construction Summit being held in Fuzhou.
Cao Shumin, deputy director of the Cyberspace Administration of China, who attended the summit, said that artificial intelligence is increasingly integrated into various fields of economic development, becoming an important driving force for promoting the leapfrog development of science and technology, industrial transformation and upgrading, and the overall leap in productivity, providing strong support for the conversion of new and old kinetic energy and high-quality economic development.
Daniel Zhang, chairman and CEO of Alibaba and CEO of Alibaba Cloud Intelligence, also said at the summit that the current artificial intelligence is an opportunity as important as digitalization 20 years ago, and the industry is at a new starting point in the intelligent era.
In the face of the huge opportunities of artificial intelligence, how can China exert its strength? Experts and scholars at the meeting pointed out that conquering key core technologies and basic theories such as big models, large computing power, and big data will become the key to seizing the commanding heights of artificial intelligence development.
Daniel Zhang believes that the broad intelligence of various industries is inseparable from the support of higher quality and higher performance computing power. Li Guangju, president of Unicom Digital Technology Co., Ltd., said that "chat" robots represented by ChatGPT continue to be hot, artificial intelligence will become an important tipping point in the digital economy, and the demand for computing power infrastructure will "blow out".
As of the end of 2022, China's total computing power exceeded 180EFLOPS (18000,30 Beijing floating-point operations per second), ranking second in the world, with an annual growth rate of nearly <>%.
Mei Jianping, head of the High-tech Department of the Ministry of Science and Technology of China, pointed out that while artificial intelligence has a subtle impact, it also brings problems such as energy consumption and carbon emissions, and it is necessary to further improve the green technology innovation system; Green AI is an inevitable trend in the development of artificial intelligence in the future, which requires the joint efforts of government, industry, academia, research and application, and continues to increase support for the green artificial intelligence industry.
Huo Jia, vice president of Alibaba Cloud Intelligence and head of industry solutions, believes that behind large models and large computing power, higher operating efficiency and lower operating costs are required. Xu Feng, vice president of China Mobile Design Institute and general manager of China Mobile Digital Intelligence Technology Co., Ltd., suggested that Chinese companies shoulder their responsibilities to advance the layout and promote the construction of cheap and low-carbon computing power facilities.
At present, China is promoting the construction of computing power network. Mei Jianping said that a new computing power infrastructure with interconnection, collaborative scheduling and efficient computing of computing power resources will be built to realize the sharing and circulation of data, computing power, models, services and other elements, and become a solid foundation to support the construction of digital China.
The development of artificial intelligence should focus on the needs of the scene. Huo Jia believes that only with suitable application scenarios and large-scale commercialization, artificial intelligence can "take root and germinate fruit". Ye Jian, chief operating officer of 360 Group, proposed that artificial intelligence should start from the scene, because it will eventually move towards the commercial field.
"AI big models will open up data disconnection nodes with lower thresholds and higher efficiency, and promote the smooth flow of data in R&D, production, distribution, service and other links." Daniel Zhang said that the real economy is the main battlefield of intelligence, and thousands of industries will be redefined; At present, more than 20,<> enterprise users in China have applied to access Alibaba's Tongyi Qianwen Test.
Jiang Guofei, senior vice president of Ant Group and president of the digital technology business group, believes that with the great progress of data, algorithms and computing power, a better combination of artificial intelligence will bring about great productivity progress; Through data feedback and model training, artificial intelligence can be closer to the needs of the scene, which can greatly improve production efficiency and create great value for the industry.
After the launch of ChatGPT, it initially caused amazement and carnival around the world, and now its security is a widespread concern in the industry. Cao Shumin said that it is necessary to actively respond to challenges such as public safety, privacy infringement, digital divide, and ethical irregularities brought by artificial intelligence, so that technology can be used for good and promote the development of artificial intelligence to be fairer, more sustainable and safer.
In the face of new challenges brought by AI models such as ChatGPT to public safety and privacy infringement, Qi Xiangdong, chairman of Qianxin Technology Group, suggested that artificial intelligence should be used to improve the efficiency of network security prevention and control, and at the same time safely process data.
According to incomplete statistics, China has launched more than 20 large models such as Wen Xin Yiyan and Tongyi Qianwen. Cao Shumin also reminded that the development of artificial intelligence should not be "rushed up", but should be developed rationally to prevent local overheating. (End)
