Chinese State Council Guidelines for Artificial Intelligence

The Chinese government's wish-list for AI researchers is pretty ambitious: "Breakthroughs should be made in basic theories of AI, such as big data intelligence, multimedia aware computing, human-machine hybrid intelligence, swarm intelligence and automated decision-making."

They'll get right on that, I'm sure.

A common technology system should be developed based on algorithms, data and hardware. Technologies in the system include a computational knowledge engine, swarm computing, virtual reality modeling and natural language processing.

Innovation platforms should be constructed, such as an open-source computing platform, which can promote coordination among different hardware, software and clouds.

More AI professionals and scientists should be trained.

The AI economy should be promoted. New industries using AI technology should be developed, such as smart robot, smart vehicle, virtual reality (VR), augmented reality (AR) and smart terminal. Traditional industries should be integrated with AI to develop smart manufacturing, agriculture, finance, logistics and business.
