One application of a brain-inspired AI technology is self-driving cars, which rely heavily on sensors and a massive quantity of live and preprogrammed data, according to Li Deyi, an academician at the Chinese Academy of Engineering.
"The human brain is the most complex object in the universe," he said. "Both the brain and AI involve big data training, but the brain develops its neural network organically with significant structural changes over decades, whereas AI's learning structure is static and requires a huge amount of data and energy."
The second direction is simply an acceptance that China now has a responsibility to frame a common language to deal with issues like environmental ones, global governance, security. The forces of protectionism and isolationism that we have seen in the US and EU in the last few years, and which can be traced back to the shock of the global economic crisis of 2008 and its impact on wealth levels, equality and social development, pull in a different way to those that are likely to best be able to address common problems. It seems that in many places there is an attempt to draw boundaries more tightly, to walk away from even trying to think in an international way, and to complain that the global agenda is no longer one that entirely suits the partners that used to be so keen on it.
"I am so lucky to be part of such a great age led by a great man," said Yu Zhigang, a National People's Congress deputy. "The unanimous vote showed that as our leader, Xi has our full support and trust and bears our high expectation."
That's why the academy decided to build some unarmed versions of the CH-4 and CH-5, which were developed as combat drones, and market them to private businesses.
