The 2020 Artificial Intelligence World Innovation Challenge (known as AIWIN), a major annual AI event in Shanghai, was launched on April 21.
This year, the AIWIN is meant to deepen cooperation with industry leaders to encourage AI innovation around the world, gather AI talent, and promote AI projects.
The event consists of three challenges for different types of AI, which will be held sequentially from May to June. The finals will be completed at the end of June, and road show demonstrations for AI entries will be held in July.
As a driver of global AI innovation, the AIWIN aims to set up a long-term AI innovation ecosystem with AI enterprises and experts and use AI to empower industrial development and help turn Shanghai into an AI hub.
Since 2018, the AIWIN has attracted more than 1,000 AI teams every year and promoted more than 1,200 AI applications in fields such as medicine, finance, smart cities, driverless technology, robotics, and industry, giving the event global influence.
Through international promotion and cooperation, the AIWIN has increased its influence in countries such as the United Kingdom, Israel, France, Canada, the United States, and Singapore. About 30 percent of participating projects in the AIWIN are from overseas.
In 2019, the host of the event organized an international entrepreneurial camp and invited more than 10 overseas enterprises to attend the World AI Conference in Shanghai to help them commercialize their AI technology in the city.
During the AIWIN, an AI talent training group and a camp focusing on the development of AI enterprises will be set up through cooperation with industry leaders, renowned universities, and international innovation institutions.
Under the guidance of the principle of "globalization, specialization, high standard, and marketization" and under the supervision of the World AI Conference Committee, the AIWIN will be organized by the Shanghai AI Development Alliance, the Shanghai Development Research Center of Economics and Informatization, Shanghai Morrow Intelligent Technology, Jizhan (Shanghai) Robot Technology Co, and the China Mobile (Shanghai) Industrial Research Institute.
The Industrial and Commercial Bank of China, Guotai Junan Securities, China Unicom (Shanghai), Shanghai Pudong Development Bank and AI SPACE will provide AI scenarios, and Intel (China), OpenVINO ™, and Jishi Platform will provide technical support.
