Tencent accelerates the integration of AI into industries through infrastructure. Integrating AI with 5G, blockchain, cloud computing and other technologies will spur development and help AI realize its potential.
At the 2020 World Conference on Artificial Intelligence (WAIC) in Shanghai, Tencent presented a white paper,“Tencent AI: Ambient Intelligence,”and announced the launch of the Light 2.0 program and four new platforms, including an entertainment AI platform, an AI broadcast and TV media console, a content review platform and an industrial AI platform.
Over the past six months, the integration of artificial intelligence and industry has never been more deployed. 2020 is a year that will go down in history. In the context of the global fight against the pandemic, artificial intelligence has been sought in the medical, urban governance, industry, contactless services and other areas, emerging from the cloud and playing a key role in the epidemic.
Accelerating digital transformation into networks and intelligence is an inevitable trend. It is characterized by an omnipresent intelligence in the construction of infrastructure. Artificial intelligence technology will gradually become a core service facility such as the Internet and electricity. With the continuous enrichment of technology, algorithms, scenarios and talents, artificial intelligence enters various sectors and becomes ubiquitous. In China after this epidemic, China no longer has many purely traditional industries, and each industry has more or less begun the process of digitization, networking with AI.
Artificial intelligence has stirred a huge wave, and everyone will be swept away in this huge wave for better or for worse!
One example is around the chest scanner that can detect pathological changes in the lungs, imaging doctors take on a heavy workload, because not only does the detection of suspected cases require a CT scan, but patients undergoing a CT scan every five days on average.
A chest scanner typically generates about 300 images, which takes doctors five to fifteen minutes to examine with the naked eye, but the Tencent AMIS AI imaging and diagnostic platform can provide physicians with a diagnostic reference in just one minute, greatly improving the effectiveness of diagnosis and providing rapid treatment to patients. AI technology automatically segments images: the green and blue loops below indicate lung damage and Covid-19, respectively.
AI moves towards ubiquitous intelligence
In recent years, all the world’s largest technology companies, Apple, Google, Microsoft, Amazon and Facebook, have invested more and more resources in the AI market, even turning into AI-focused companies.
They’re all fighting to win the first ticket in AI. Tencent offered a fairly ordinary wish: “AI in All”. Like the Internet and mobile Internet, AI is a fundamental force. At the technological level, Tencent is strengthening its talent provisions, forming AI research laboratories and embarking on basic research. In application scenarios, Tencent’s extensive and diverse enterprise services and content provided many application scenarios for machine learning, computer vision, voice recognition and natural language processing. Application scenarios in games, content, social media, finance, medicine, etc.
At the platform level, he pushed to the strategy of AI as a service. This includes voice recognition, image recognition, semantic recognition, and in-depth learning frameworks that open up AI capabilities of many dimensions to the outside world: Angle, cnn, TNN and other machine learning systems, in-depth learning platforms, lowering the threshold for AI development to advance more realistic business applications.
