SAP global vice president: to seize the new AI track, Shanghai should put down its "idol burden"
for many years, Shanghai has been used to being in the leading position in the national economy, but in the face of the new AI and industrial interconnection track, Shanghai should release its burden and do something "not done before", such as attracting talents in the fields of industrial interconnection and intelligent manufacturing, which can show a clearer "ambition"; Increase connectivity with cities around the Yangtze River Delta. "Only by attracting talents and paying more attention to industry and manufacturing can Shanghai occupy a preemptive highland in the new round of development."
in the afternoon of July 27, the cross-border high-end Seminar on "facing the world and the future: Shanghai vision and Jing'an plan" was held in Shanghai Library. Famous scholars, enterprise executives and government representatives gathered together to discuss the global and future oriented Shanghai plan, and explore and grasp the entry point of transformation and upgrading from a high starting point
when talking about how to seize the new highland of industrial interconnection and artificial intelligence industry, Mr. Li Qiang, President and global vice president of sap (China) Co., Ltd., said that in the past 20 years, China has become the world's largest consumer Internet market. China's e-commerce transaction volume has accounted for 42% of the world, and the share of mobile payment is 9 times that of the United States. At the same time, Shanghai enterprises are not in the forefront of the beneficiaries of this wave of mobile Internet. With the gradual slowdown of mobile Internet traffic dividends, the industry generally believes that China Internet has entered the "second half" of development, that is, the era of industrial interconnection and the use of resin matrix composite fan blades on aeroengines. The most typical representative is that artificial intelligence is becoming an important factor in promoting economic development
"on the new track, Shanghai has the advantage of catching up from behind." Li Qiang said that how to view Shanghai's leading position in the second half of the Internet and the new AI track should first be changed in concept
at present, industrial interconnection and artificial intelligence have become the hottest technology fields, and cities all over the country are promoting the development of these two fields. In 2017, the investment and financing volume of China's AI industry reached US $27billion, second only to the United States, and has become the second largest country in the world in terms of investment and financing volume of AI industry. In addition, the number of Chinese artificial intelligence "unicorn" enterprises is also second only to the United States, with 500 enterprises claiming to "have their own interconnection solutions", and more than 5000 enterprises nationwide have invested and financed around industrial interconnection. In contrast, Germany currently has no more than five enterprises fully engaged in industrial interconnection
it is necessary to mention the problems existing in the development of China's artificial intelligence industry and industrial interconnection
Li Qiang said that in 2017, the vast majority of the $27billion AI investment and financing was invested in the consumer sector, mainly in speech recognition, face recognition, autonomous driving, finance, intelligent retail, etc. However, for China, a large manufacturing country, only 0.19% of investment and financing activities are targeted at industry and manufacturing. "This is also an important reason why more than 90% of Chinese AI enterprises today have not found a profit model." He believes that AI investment and financing has cooled slightly in 2018, and some segments will face a reshuffle in 2019
the theme of the Hannover Industrial Expo in Germany held in April this year is "the integration of artificial intelligence and industry". The five-day exhibition released more than 500 industrial intelligence applications, involving AI enabling the real economy, the impact of AI on research and development, how AI affects product quality, how AI predicts the failure time of large equipment, how AI improves intelligent manufacturing and mass customization, and how AI helps traditional manufacturing enterprises transform to service-oriented enterprises. "These application fields just reflect the pragmatic side of Germany's treatment of the AI industry, which is worth learning from China at present."
then what is the idea of developing artificial intelligence and industrial interconnection in Shanghai? Li Qiang suggested that the combination of "Shanghai service" and "made in Shanghai" brands should be strengthened. "Manufacturing has a far-reaching impact on economic development. Shanghai should focus on combining manufacturing application scenarios with AI technology, and walk out of Shanghai's unique path of AI and industrial interconnection development." Li Qiang also said that sap, as a global top 500 enterprise from Germany after the breaking of the 8. 8 test sample, is willing to build a bridge between China and Germany to promote the joint development of industrial interconnection and related derivative industries
"however, Shanghai must first put down its" idol new energy demand is expected to exceed the deadline. " Li Qiang said his observation that over the years, Shanghai has been used to being in the leading position in the national economy, but in the face of the new track of artificial intelligence and industrial interconnection, Shanghai should release its burden and do something "not done before", such as attracting talents in the fields of industrial interconnection and intelligent manufacturing, which can show a more clear "ambition"; Increase connectivity with cities around the Yangtze River Delta. "Only by attracting talents and paying more attention to industry and manufacturing can Shanghai occupy a preemptive highland in the new round of development." 3.
