In addition, scientists, entrepreneurs, innovation and entrepreneurship leaders also gave keynote speeches on the current bottlenecks and future development of the industry.
At the summit, Rongwei Ren, Executive Deputy Director and Professor of Center for Entrepreneurship at Sun Yat-sen University, released the Report of the New Generation of Artificial Intelligence in the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area (2019). The Blue Book proposes to build a new generation of artificial intelligence technology innovation system in Greater Bay Area and an industrial ecosystem in Guangdong, Hong Kong, Macao and Greater Bay Area with the mode of “corridor + core + node”, and elaborates the layout of the new generation of artificial intelligence in the “9 + 2” urban cluster in Greater Bay Area, aiming to usher in a new era of innovative economy. The release of the Blue Book attracted wide attention of the industry.
Thematic Sessions Show the Insight into the Development of AI Industry
On November 1st and 2nd, the summit held the forum on the development of 5G Internet of things, the forum on the trend and application of AI and big data, International Conference on IEEE Sensor Application, the forum on robot development and innovation, CEO forums and other theme forums. In addition, 2019 Entrepreneurship and Innovation Competition on Robotics and AI, Dialogue of the 2019 China-Japan Scientists’ High-level Forum, IEEE Sensor Theory and Industrial Application (IEEE-NSENS) and other thematic sessions were held simultaneously.
From the macro and micro perspectives, different forums centered on the theme of “AI Industrialization and Industrial AI, Towards a New Era of Innovative Economy”, and presented the achievements of robot and artificial intelligence in many fields. On the forums, the issues in the field of robot and artificial intelligence were explored, and constructive opinions on the new development, services and trends of application market were put forward.
Star Plan Was Launched for the Integration of Innovation and Talents
This summit grandly launched the “Star Plan of 2019 Greater Bay Area Summit on Robotics and AI”, which includes two parts: “Talent Carnival” and “Entrepreneurship and Innovation Competition”. This plan gathered the high-quality enterprises and project teams of the 9 + 2 urban cluster in Greater Bay Area, providing about 500 positions, releasing about 500 projects, and covering high-performance computing, big data, mobile Internet, intelligent perception, artificial intelligence, new materials and other industries. It aims to achieve three-dimensional effective talent exchange and service, provide in-depth service for talent project docking in Greater Bay Area, and offer a new and systematic competitive platform for scientific and technological talents. It also reflects the core idea of “innovation is the first driving force of development, while talent is the first supporting resource of development” that the “plan” proposes.
The two-day 2019 Greater Bay Area Summit on Robotics and AI has attracted extensive attention of the society through exhibitions. It has created opportunities for project cooperation, brand building, technical guidance and investment and financing for all parties while it is committed to creating an innovative atmosphere in a globalized, specialized and high-end manner in Greater Bay Area, accelerating talent gathering in the field of robot and artificial intelligence, and facilitating Guangdong, Hong Kong, Macao and Greater Bay Area to create new driving forces in the field of robotics and artificial intelligence.
