PresenterZhang Wenqiang


In recent years, artificial intelligence technology represented by deep learning has developed rapidly, becoming a pioneer of a new generation of technological revolution and playing an ever-increasingly pivotal role in digital transformation. However, existing deep learning methods are troubled by technical problems such as strong data dependence, serious overparameterization, single learning task, and poor adaptability.

At present, China is facing the new situation of “three-phase superposition”, in which the phase of rapid development of emerging technologies, the phase of high-quality economic and social development, and the phase of profound adjustment in international order in particular the Sino-US relationship overlap at the same time. Thus, focusing on cutting-edge artificial intelligence technology, this report first introduces, from theoretical and technological angles, findings of our team in recent years in knowledge-guided key technology of artificial intelligence and other researches, as well as the industry-university-research work in intelligent robots, and then moves on to the challenges and opportunities of artificial intelligence and robots under digital transformation. This report will also exchange thoughts on artificial intelligence education and integration of industry and education.
