Leading enterprises lead a large number of artificial intelligence projects to accelerate their landing in Shanghai.

  In 2018, the financing amount of artificial intelligence related industries in Shanghai has exceeded 60 billion yuan, reaching a record high.

  As a pioneer in China’s artificial intelligence industry, Shanghai has gathered one-third of the country’s artificial intelligence talents, with more than 1,000 artificial intelligence core enterprises, and the scale of artificial intelligence-related industries exceeds 70 billion yuan.

  At the same time, in order to continuously improve the healthy development ecology of artificial intelligence and build an artificial intelligence "Shanghai highland", Shanghai is still accelerating the landing of the project. In 2018, the financing amount of artificial intelligence related industries in Shanghai has exceeded 60 billion yuan, reaching a record high.

  Innovative platforms and major scientific research achievements are constantly emerging.

  In January this year, Songjiang District and the Institute of Neuroscience of China Academy of Sciences held a major achievement conference on "Somatic Cloned Monkey Model with Biological Rhythm Disorder" at G60 Brain Science and Technology Innovation Base in Sheshan. This is the first time in the world that a batch of macaque models with biological rhythm disorder with consistent genetic background have been successfully constructed.

  This breakthrough marks the maturity of somatic cell cloning technology in China, and the realization of mass cloning of experimental disease model monkeys means that the number of experimental animals in the world is expected to be greatly reduced, and drug research and development will enter the fast lane. With the release of the above results, the Institute of Neuroscience of Chinese Academy of Sciences and the Shanghai Institute of Pharmacology of Chinese Academy of Sciences also signed a strategic cooperation agreement to promote the research and development of new drugs in the field of neuropsychiatric diseases.

  "G60 Brain Intelligence Science and Technology Innovation Base" is one of eight AI innovation platforms jointly signed by Songjiang District Government and Institute of Neurology, Chinese Academy of Sciences. It is a representative of Industry-University-Research cooperation and was signed and settled in Shanghai at the 2018 World Artificial Intelligence Conference.

  At present, G60 Brain Science and Technology Innovation Base is being built into a "frontier position" of brain science research and a platform for the development of brain-like intelligence industry, which is expected to be completed within two years, and will include a research and development center for brain disease treatment, a therapeutic evaluation center for brain diseases and a new drug detection and analysis center. Academician Muming Poo, director of the Institute of Neuroscience, Chinese Academy of Sciences, said that foreign teams are interested in coming to Songjiang for cooperation.

  In addition to the G60 Brain Science and Technology Innovation Base, at the 2018 World Artificial Intelligence Conference, a number of global artificial intelligence innovation projects were signed and settled in Shanghai. These projects are aimed at key core areas such as AI industrial chain, innovation chain and value chain, including 8 AI innovation centers (laboratories) such as Alibaba and Baidu, 8 AI innovation platforms such as Tencent and Huawei, 3 AI research institutes such as Microsoft and Amazon, and a 10 billion artificial intelligence industry fund.

  Take Shangtang Technology, one of the contracted companies, as an example. At present, the company is building a new generation of AI major computing platform, which can exceed 5 billion computing power per second in the future, and plans to invest no less than 6 billion yuan in Shanghai within five years to build four functional headquarters, including global R&D headquarters.

  The First Financial Reporter learned that as of the first half of this year, the number of employees in Shang Tang has increased from 14 to over 500, including nearly 350 R&D personnel, and the company is constantly introducing international high-end talents in the field of artificial intelligence. In addition, Shangtang Technology has implemented strategic cooperation with Shanghai Yidian Group and Lingang Group to build a smart city and smart industrial park.

  "Shanghai’s talent advantages, industrial advantages and extensive application fields in super-large cities will provide a huge opportunity platform and practical experience for Shangtang Technology to further promote the commercialization of AI technology." Shangtang Technology told the First Financial Reporter, "Shanghai is actively building a highland of national artificial intelligence. At present, it has gathered about one-third of AI talents in China, and the comprehensive environment is more suitable for the overall development of international talents. At the same time, Shanghai has an excellent AI industry foundation, a perfect database and a developed capital market, which can create conditions for the incubation and development of the industry. "

  The industrial fund group has taken initial shape.

  Shanghai has taken many important measures for the next development of artificial intelligence, including further expanding the clusters of advantageous enterprises and formulating multi-level enterprise introduction and cultivation plans; Continue to exert efforts in industrial layout, technical research, application demonstration, ecological construction, etc., benchmark the top international standards, build a world-class artificial intelligence brand, and amplify the spillover effect; Focus on the development of intelligent driving, intelligent robots, intelligent hardware, intelligent sensors, intelligent chips, intelligent software and other fields, continue to attract leading Chinese and foreign enterprises to develop, and increase support for local high-growth enterprises and start-ups

  It is understood that in order to provide financial support for the artificial intelligence industry, the Shanghai Artificial Intelligence Industry Investment Fund has formed a formation plan, raising 10 billion yuan in the first phase. Previously, G60 Science and Technology Innovation Corridor Artificial Intelligence Industry Fund, Yangpu Artificial Intelligence Venture Capital Fund and other funds have also been initiated, initially forming a fund group.

  Among them, the "G60 Science and Technology Corridor Artificial Intelligence Industry Fund" was signed as a Shanghai artificial intelligence innovation project at the 2018 World Artificial Intelligence Conference, with a target fundraising scale of 10 billion yuan. Based in Shanghai, facing the Yangtze River Delta and taking G60 Science and Technology Innovation Corridor as the industrial hinterland, the fund mainly invests in artificial intelligence and related industrial chain projects, including chips, sensors, algorithms at the basic level and enterprises in the fields of smart home, smart driving and smart medical care at the application level.

  As the core area of advanced manufacturing and modern service industry in the Yangtze River Delta, G60 Science and Technology Corridor has laid a sound industrial foundation for the development of artificial intelligence and created a good application scenario. At the same time, the gathering of top universities in the region can provide a steady stream of science and technology talents for the development of artificial intelligence. At present, G60 Science and Technology Corridor has produced many well-known artificial intelligence enterprises, and it is expected to become a gathering area of artificial intelligence industry in China in the future.

The Yangtze River Delta is working together to build the G60 Science and Technology Corridor. The picture shows the sand table of Songjiang Science and Technology City in Shanghai Lingang, Xinhua News Agency.

  Cheng Fang, president of Shanghai Guohe Investment, the manager of G60 Science and Technology Innovation Corridor Artificial Intelligence Industry Fund, once said that G60 Science and Technology Innovation Fund relies on G60 Science and Technology Innovation Corridor, not only investing in enterprises covered by G60 Science and Technology Innovation Corridor, but also choosing to invest in excellent projects and teams at home and abroad to guide them to land in G60 Science and Technology Innovation Corridor.

  At present, the artificial intelligence industry chain includes the lowest infrastructure layer, such as chips, sensors, cloud computing, open source platforms, etc. The technical layer in the middle layer, such as image recognition, natural language processing, robot action, etc. The top application layer, such as applications in various industries and robots.

From the perspective of fund investment, the application layer can accommodate more enterprises, and the investment success rate is relatively high. Therefore, the Foundation chooses enterprises that deeply cultivate vertical applications and provide perfect solutions.

  In the technical layer and infrastructure layer, the fund will pay more attention to relatively early or more subdivided enterprises, such as sensor enterprises with strong import substitution and less sought after by the market, some artificial intelligence chip enterprises with reasonable valuation, and independent third-party data labeling and data cleaning companies.

  Top institutions have been "recruiting"

  At the 2018 World Artificial Intelligence Conference, Amazon AWS Shanghai Institute of Artificial Intelligence and Microsoft Research Asia (Shanghai) signed contracts with Microsoft-Yidian Institute of Artificial Intelligence Innovation and Iflytek (Shanghai) Institute of Artificial Intelligence and Brain Science.

  On May 24th this year, "Microsoft Asia Research Institute (Shanghai) and Microsoft — Yidian Artificial Intelligence Innovation Institute was officially unveiled and launched the artificial intelligence talent training system. "We believe that Shanghai is a diverse, versatile and multi-funded city. For example, Shanghai has finance, medical care and manufacturing. This city is very suitable for the research, creation and landing of artificial intelligence. It is precisely because of the opportunities brought by Shanghai that Microsoft’s investment and layout in Shanghai are very extensive and rich. " Pan Tianyou, vice president of Microsoft Research Asia, told the First Financial Reporter.

  Pan Tianyou also said that Microsoft has extended its high-level artificial intelligence research capabilities to Shanghai, explored innovative cooperation models to promote the digital transformation of the government and enterprises, and promoted the accelerated development of a new generation of artificial intelligence technology in various industries in Shanghai. However, he also admitted that what the institute needs most is talents, and the recruitment and training of talents still need time.

  Amazon AWS Shanghai Artificial Intelligence Research Institute also said that it is necessary to gather the world’s top AI talents and participate in and develop the open source deep learning framework ecosystem.

  Iflytek (Shanghai) Institute of Artificial Intelligence and Brain Science has also made progress. Zhao Xiang, general manager of Iflytek Shanghai, told CBN: "We are moving the political and legal innovation business center, financial business center and big data operation center to the new office building in Changning District. R&D in Shanghai is also strengthening. Because there are more talents in universities and artificial intelligence in Shanghai, we will definitely tend to recruit local talents. "

  In addition, CBN reporter also learned that Iflytek is stepping up the layout of its regional headquarters and overseas headquarters.

  Zhao Xiang said that Lingang recently released a plan to support the development of artificial intelligence, which is good for Iflytek to settle in Shanghai, and the company will deepen its cooperation with Lingang in the future. "Real and visible application cases are the foundation of the development of artificial intelligence. Shanghai has a very rich application scenario, which helps us to deepen the application of artificial intelligence in education, medical care, finance and other industries."

Selecting insiders and manipulating competitions … God knows what China sports has experienced in recent years.

  CCTV News:A few days ago, Fiona Fang magazine sponsored by Procuratorial Daily published an article entitled "Shocking Corruption at the Top of Sports in China". The article listed some relevant measures and some specific cases of anti-corruption in China sports since the 18th National Congress. How did China sports experience the pain of reform in the past five years? Xiaobian tells you through several stories.

  Twin sisters regret retiring.

  In May, 2017, twin sisters Hua Jiang Wenwen and Jiang Tingting returned to the stadium to win the gold medal at the award ceremony of the Flower Tour Double Event in the 13th National Games. Four years ago, because of a controversial referee’s score, the Wen Ting sisters, a world-famous flower swimming group, only achieved the third place in the National Games, ending their sports career with a bronze medal, while the host group Liaoning won the championship.

  The nearly perfect performance was awarded a low score by the referee. The score of the Liaoning team on the final day of the same set of competition actions was 2.2 points higher than that of the previous day’s preliminaries. All doubts pointed to Yu Li, then the head of synchronized swimming department of the General Administration of Sports, but after the game, Yu Li said in an interview: "The referee did not violate the relevant general rules and regulations in the scoring process, so the final score was determined to be effective and the original result was maintained."

  One year after the National Games in Liaoning, CPC Central Commission for Discipline Inspection made an all-round tour of the State Sports General Administration. After nearly one and a half months of inspection, the inspection results were announced, in which "the selection and selection of referees are not standardized, and the competition violates the principle of fairness and fraud" has become the focus of attention. On the third day after the announcement of the inspection results, the General Administration of Sports reported that an official was investigated for allegedly manipulating the competition and accepting improper bribes, and the person who was taken away was Yu Li, the former minister of the water polo department of the swimming center.

  According to authoritative media reports, in the 12th National Games, in order to "take care of" the host team’s "gold medal task", Yu Li, the former head of the National Flower Tour Team, accepted a bribe of 200,000 yuan from the director of Liaoning Swimming Center, resulting in a major scoring dispute in the flower tour project.

  In fact, the phenomenon of using authority to operate competitions like Yu Li is by no means a case in China sports, and it has even become a "hidden rule" in many projects. At the 10th National Games, Tian Liang, a famous diver, was suppressed because of his "bad relationship" with a leader of the China diving team. Before the game, in the referee’s lounge, a sports executive demanded that "no matter how well Tian Liang dances, he can only give 8.5 points at most". In the competition, after a perfect entry in Tian Liang, except one referee who gave a high score of 9.5 according to the standard, other referees really only gave 8.5 points. The referee who gave a high score finally lost the qualification of "best referee" and resigned soon after offending the leader.

  Although the official has not announced the exact reason why Yu Li was taken away, what is certain is that she can’t escape the common crime of accepting bribes or corruption. According to several media reports, although Yu Li and her husband Liu Fengyan, as cadres of the General Administration of Sports, obtained two houses allocated by the General Administration, Yu Li thought that their living conditions were not good enough, and then bought a 200-square-meter commercial house at a price of nearly 51,000 square meters, but the problem is that no one knows where the money came from.

  The table tennis player ran away angrily.

  Donna entered the national youth team at the age of 13 and won the national youth championship at the age of 16. She was called a "genius" of table tennis by the outside world, but she never participated in the world championships and the Olympic Games in the national team. Later, she changed her nationality and went to South Korea to play. After that, she won 10 games in the Korean Table Tennis Championships, ranking first in the women’s singles.

  "The Chinese Table Tennis Association does not pass the trials, but designates potential players in advance for centralized cultivation." According to media reports, Donna even said that South Korea is her motherland and hoped to enter the Olympic Games on behalf of South Korea, which caused great controversy.

  According to titan sports, Yu Li was not taken alone to assist in the investigation. She was also taken with an ace coach of the weightlifting team. It is mentioned in the article that this involves an ugly drama of China weightlifting team in the 2012 London Olympic Games. At that time, Zhou Jun, a 53kg Hubei native who represented China team, failed in snatch three times, creating the worst result of China women’s volleyball since she participated in the Olympic Games in 2000, and Zhou Jun’s qualification for the Olympic Games was also the result of the struggle of local interests.

  The similar shady selection is not a case. Take the national football team as an example. The list of players of each national team is full of disputes. As early as 2014, CPC Central Commission for Discipline Inspection also published the article "What can the professional reform do to save the" deflated football "for more than 20 years? Named the phenomenon of chaotic football management in China.

  In this paper, the expressions such as "the examination and approval of the competition and the selection and appointment of athletes and referees are not standardized, open and transparent", "the competition violates the principle of fairness, practices fraud", "the development and operation of the competition are chaotic" and "the power of the units directly under the General Administration is highly concentrated" have aroused strong repercussions from netizens, especially the majority of football fans, and China football has once again been pushed to the forefront.

  According to insiders, although the strength is the first in competitive sports, the selection of national team athletes has become a matter of great interest in many absolutely superior events, and it is easier to trigger some private power and money transactions.

  The incident of Yu Li caused an uproar among the public, and also opened the tip of the iceberg of China sports corruption. On June 25th, 2015, official website, the Supervision Department of the Central Commission for Discipline Inspection, announced that Xiao Tian, deputy director of the State Sports General Administration, was suspected of serious violation of discipline and law and was currently under investigation. From July 2014 to July 2015, more than 10 officials were investigated in the State Sports General Administration, sports project management centers and provincial and municipal local sports bureaus in one year.

  On March 21st, 2017, CPC Central Commission for Discipline Inspection launched a new round of inspection of the General Administration of Sport. According to the website of CPC Central Commission for Discipline Inspection, this patrol will achieve full coverage for 22 subordinate units of the State Sports General Administration, and "keeping an eye on key people, key matters and key issues" has become an important direction of this patrol. A series of chaos in the selection of athletes highlights the grim situation of corruption in sports, and it is urgent to crack down on the corruption of sports industry officials.

  China men’s basketball team is struggling.

  With the retirement of Yao Ming, Wang Zhizhi and other veterans, the performance of China men’s basketball team in the international arena plummeted. In addition to the reasons for the lack of success, there are deeper reasons for the fall of China men’s basketball team.

  "It is inconceivable that even a company holding a three-person basketball game needs the approval of the Basketball Association. Internationally, the Olympic Games, NBA and other events are organized by non-governmental organizations and operated in a market-oriented manner. There is no official approval at all. "

  According to Qiao Xinsheng, dean of the Institute of Integrity of Zhongnan University of Economics and Law, this is a disguised form of "power rent-seeking". The General Administration of Sports and the local sports authorities have formed a huge "interest chain" and turned it into a tool to gain the gray interests of the department.

  This point was also mentioned by Yao Ming, a basketball star and member of Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference, in the "National Conference". He believes that at the current stage of development, there is no inevitable reason for the approval of sports events.

  Yao Ming pointed out that competition management and approval fees are often collected by the management centers of various sports, and the standards vary widely, which is easy to breed corruption; However, the sports management department interfered with the allocation of resources that could have been allocated by the market with the administrative hand, and also formed a monopoly objectively, which seriously hindered the enthusiasm of social forces for running sports and caused the fact of artificially setting a "threshold" for running competitions.

  Yao Ming’s proposal was adopted in the government work report of that year. However, people in the industry believe that sports departments at all levels have implemented the examination and approval of sports events for many years, and it will be difficult to remove this "cake of interests" from internal reform.

  In fact, it was not until the Central Inspection Team pointed out that "the examination and approval of sports events was irregular and opaque, highlighting the interests of departments" that the General Administration of Sports was forced to rectify its position, "canceling the examination and approval of commercial and mass sports events, and all other sports events were not required except national comprehensive sports events such as the National Games, the National Winter Games and the National Youth Games, and a few special types of sports events involving national security, politics, military affairs and diplomacy".

  Facts have proved that the cumbersome examination and approval process can not provide positive energy for the management and operation of sports events itself except for breeding the soil of "power rent-seeking". In November 2016, the new director of the General Administration of Sports, Gou Zhongwen, took office, and several major reforms and anti-corruption measures were successively introduced: from February to May this year, various forms of anti-corruption special meetings and anti-corruption inspections were held for four consecutive months, and 15 subordinate units were inspected as of May 28, and more than 180 problems were pointed out; In addition, Yao Ming, Lang Ping and other professionals are allowed to settle in trade associations to lead the reform in related fields … … The effect of this series of measures can only be tested by waiting for future events and achievements.
