(Yicai Global) Aug. 20 -- Google and Microsoft have put their names down for the 2018 World Artificial Intelligence Conference, slated to take place in Shanghai next month to discuss a new era empowered by artificial intelligence.
The two American tech giants will join the likes of Alibaba, Tencent, Baidu and Huawei at the conference, the event organizer said. A host of Chinese firms focused specifically on artificial intelligence, such as Ifytek and SenseTime, will also attend.
The Chinese Academy of Sciences will host the conference in tandem with the Academy of Engineering and a slew of government bodies, including the Shanghai municipal government. The organizers want to investigate global development trends in AI technologies, industries and applications, and look at its uses in traffic management, finance, retail, healthcare, manufacturing, education and other services.
