SAN FRANCISCO - Hundreds of US and Chinese representatives from hi-tech firms met Saturday to exchange expertise in state-of-the-art technology, at an annual forum held at Silicon Valley in San Francisco on the US west coast.

The participants including scholars, researchers and entrepreneurs represented many leading hi-tech companies from the two countries that came to share their most recent achievements and investments.

The forum, entitled "The 2018 CONNECT Conference," focused on the theme of "Intelligent System, Technology Meets Industry" which is devoted to the frontline technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI) technology, cyber security, smart cars, deep learning, as well as AI chips and manufacturing.

At one of the seven panels of the yearly brain-storm forum, Tuomas Sandholm, developer of the AI robot Libratus that defeated the best human Poker players in several matches last year, delivered a keynote address on AI technology and future application centering around super human AI for strategic reasoning.

The AI robot thrilled the world last year when it defeated the world's top-class human players in several tournaments of Texas Poker in January 2017, with its extremely powerful algorithm that computes Poker strategy by its super machine learning capabilities.

Deputy Consul General of China in San Francisco Zhang Jianxin said China and the United States will be committed to more practical cooperation in the future on scientific innovation and the flow of talents on the basis of their mutually complementary advantages.

Roy Kong, CEO of the US-China Association of High-level Professionals and organizer of the conference, said the forum is acting as a bridge between Chinese enterprises and their US counterparts.

The forum and its mechanism have encouraged more than 1,000 young talents from Silicon Valley and other areas to find their successful careers in China.
