Entering an era of intelligent interconnection of all things with the ternary integration of “human-machine-object”. This should be an era of human-machine collaboration and cross-border integration, an era of collective intelligence empowerment, co-creation and sharing, and it should better become an era of inclusiveness, inclusiveness, and collaborative governance. We must embrace trends and the future with enthusiasm, respond rationally to risks and challenges, better coordinate development and security, and make artificial intelligence truly usable and beneficial to mankind.
The collaborative innovation effect, industrial agglomeration effect, empowering industry effect, and policy clustering effect in the field of artificial intelligence are increasingly emerging
Li Qiang pointed out that Shanghai regards the development of artificial intelligence as a priority strategic choice for the future. The agglomeration effect, the empowerment effect, and the policy bundle effect are increasingly emerging.
Continue to build a more integrated open ecosystem, more active innovation clusters, more ubiquitous super-scenarios, and more secure agile governance
Li Qiang pointed out that at present, Shanghai is comprehensively promoting the digital transformation of the city and accelerating the city’s leap from informatization to intelligence. It is necessary to continue to create a more integrated and open ecosystem, actively integrate into the global innovation network, vigorously promote the opening of innovation platforms, data resources, and application scenarios, and strengthen exchanges and cooperation with cities, enterprises and international research institutions around the world. A win-win partner. It is necessary to continue to create more active innovation clusters, pay more attention to original innovation, improve the ability to source innovation, encourage scientists and scientific and technological workers to bravely venture into no-man’s land, build more innovation consortia with cross-border integration, and strive to develop basic theories and key technologies. More breakthrough achievements have been made in such aspects as the advancement of the AI industry foundation, the modernization of the industrial chain, and the acceleration of the creation of world-class industrial clusters.
