The space for artificial intelligence is rapidly growing. According to data from iResearch, since 2014, the amount, quantity, and number of participating investment institutions in the field of artificial intelligence have increased significantly. The amount of investment in the industry rose from 62 million yuan in 2012 to 1.42 billion yuan in 2015. According to BBC forecast data, the global artificial intelligence market will be approximately 119 billion renminbi in 2020, and approximately 9.1 billion in China. Based on scientific and technological advances in computational processing capabilities, algorithms, and big data, artificial intelligence has achieved breakthroughs, and capital circles have become fiery.
Application-specific or first commercialization
Artificial intelligence, as a technology category, has made breakthroughs in recent years. However, at present, there are still obstacles to the development of general artificial intelligence that includes many technical peaks. As a result, capital's eyes are focusing on the specific application of artificial intelligence.
Automated driving as an artificial intelligence technology is being favored by capital. As foreign media have said, "China will become the world's largest market for unmanned cars in 2035." Thanks to the large population base and the traditional automotive industry, once the unmanned industry develops, it will form a market scale of more than 100 billion yuan and trillion yuan. In artificial intelligence technology, the use of deep learning algorithms combined with big data has become a new technology path for cost control. According to Deng Zhidong, a professor at the National Key Laboratory of Intelligent Technology and Systems at Tsinghua University, the popularity of this technology path means that companies that have mastered big data resources will gain an advantage in this competition. Judging from the facts, the amount of big data collected by giant companies is increasing. Since 2009, the total driving range of Google's driverless cars has reached 2.41 million kilometers. With the lab's simulation of driving conditions, it has driven more than 4.82 million kilometers a day.
Chat-bots based on specific scenes are becoming investment hotspots. Shen Li, vice president of Zhongxing Hechuang Investment Management Co., Ltd., told reporters that the current commercialization of universal chat robots is too difficult, and a series of techniques such as semantic understanding and image recognition are difficult to overcome. Therefore, capital is more concerned with replacing manual labor in specific fields. robot.
