China to Invest Heavily on Artificial Intelligence to Surpass USPosted: March 11, 2017
In its report today titled “The future is here: China sounds a clarion call on AI funding, policies to surpass US”, SCMP says, “The future is here: China sounds a clarion call on AI funding, policies to surpass US… At the annual meeting of China’s parliament this week, the usual Communist Party agenda of economic growth, social welfare, jobs, health care and pension made way for an unusual addition: a clarion call by some of China’s most influential business and technology leaders for the government to set policies to define what they consider the Next Big Thing.
“They include the founder of the largest Chinese internet search engine Baidu, the owner of smartphone maker Xiaomi, and the founder of Geely Automobile, which bought Volvo.”
That proves that Chinese President Xi Jinping’s Chinese Dream is shared by China’s big moneys, who want China to be the best in technology.
If China’s rich people form their interest group to affect Chinese politics, Xi will be in great trouble, but lucky for him, most of them want to realize Xi’s dream of the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation.
