The 36-page discussion paper surveys cutting-edge machine learning algorithms, and discusses how they can be integrated or transformed into practical applications across 19 selected industries.
A phrase that’s cropping up a lot in Chinese media these days is “National AI Team (人工智能国家队).” While this may suggest a squad of scientists heading off to some sort of AI Olympics, it rather refers to a new class of AI companies that are either backed by national institutes or closely integrated into government-funded programs.
Leading machine learning conference International Conference on Learning Representations (ICLR) has named its best research papers of the last year: On the convergence of Adam and Beyond, Spherical CNNs, and Continuous Adaptation via Meta-learning in Nonstationary and Competitive Environments.
Chinese State media People’s Daily recently reported the country is facing a shortage of five million AI talents.
A separate LinkedIn survey revealed that while there are some 1.9 million AI engineers worldwide, about one million reside in the US while China is home to just 50,000.
