China Daily | Updated: 2017-03-17 07:12

Artificial intelligence was mentioned in this year's Government Work Report for the first time, which has drawn wide public attention.

The report regards artificial intelligence as one of the most significant emerging industries, whose technological research and transformation will be accelerated.

Artificial intelligence is a branch of computer science that includes the theory, method, technology and application of simulating, extending and expanding human intelligence. Artificial intelligence research includes intelligent robots, language recognition, image identification and natural language processing, among other things.

In July 2015, artificial intelligence was mentioned in the guidance issued by the State Council, China's Cabinet, to promote the government's Internet Plus plan, and artificial intelligence was included in the country's 13th Five-Year Plan (2016-20) released in March 2016. It shows that artificial intelligence has become a significant strategic deployment in the next stage, and the industry will grow rapidly in the future.

At a news conference on March 11, Minister of Science and Technology Wan Gang said that China had made new progress in creating artificial intelligence since last year, and a series of significant artificial intelligence projects are being conducted.

According to Wan, experts, enterprises and entrepreneurs are jointly working on accelerating the development of artificial intelligence.
