Experts’opinion on intelligent manufacturing: the next 15 years will mark the critical period for intelligent manufacturing

A special report conference was hosted during the Summit. Zhou Ji, Honorary President of the Presidential Committee of the CAE, made a report titled “Striving for breakthroughs in intelligent manufacturing and accelerating development of a strong manufacturing power”. He expressed that though historic achievements had been made in Chinese manufacturing industry, there still existed acute problems such as weak independent innovation capability. In intelligent manufacturing, manufacturing constitutes the major part while intelligence plays a dominant role. The deep integration of both represents the deep integration of information and industrialization. The future 15 years will mark a critical period for the development of intelligent manufacturing, a core technology in the new round of industrial revolution.

Wang Jian said that we had been talking about new technologies in the last decade, such as block chain, artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, AR, VR, big data, cloud computing and so on. We tended to forget most of them very quickly, leaving many problems unsolved. Wang Jian pointed out that it was because we were in an age of technology revolution and a new and comprehensive technology system was needed. The advent of a 5G era demanded a fresh perception of the Internet.

Ma Bin, Vice President of Tencent, delivered a keynote speech titled “AI + 5G drives digital transformation and upgrading of industrial Internet”. The future is now and how do you change along with the world? Ma Bin said that changes needed to start from knowing the world and knowing yourself so as to realize iteration, upgrading and evolution of knowledge, thinking and perception. He expressed that China’s future development would be built on data dividends, shifting from the former population dividends. Its development would be more data-based and evolve from an experience age to a big data age. “Improving efficiency through management” represents the goal and “data-based decision” points the direction.
