On December 20, the signing ceremony of Shanghai Jiaotong University and Shangtang science and Technology Co building Qingyuan Research Institute was held in Shangtang science and technology building. Lin Zhongqin, President of Shanghai Jiaotong University, Mao Junfa, vice president, Xu Li, co-founder and CEO of Shangtang science and technology, and Wang Xiaogang, co-founder and President of the Research Institute, attended the signing ceremony. The signing ceremony was presided over by Su Yuezeng, Secretary of the Party committee of School of electronic information and electrical engineering of Shanghai Jiaotong University.
In his speech, Lin Zhongqin said that in today's era, artificial intelligence has become a new engine of economic dynamic change, a leading strategic technology and the core driving force of a new round of industrial transformation. In July 2017, the State Council issued the development plan for the new generation of artificial intelligence, which further clarified the development path of artificial intelligence in China and promoted its development to a new height. Shangtang technology is a well-known AI innovation enterprise in the world. It is committed to the research, development and industrial application of advanced artificial intelligence technology. It is the first "intelligent vision" national open innovation platform for artificial intelligence of the new generation designated by the Ministry of science and technology of China. Over the years, Jiaotong University and Shangtang have worked hand in hand. Since the establishment of the "deep learning and computer vision" Joint Laboratory in 2017, both sides have carried out a series of scientific research cooperation in the fields of image enhancement, human posture assessment, automatic driving, video compression and other technical fields, and achieved fruitful scientific research results. The 19th National Congress of the Communist Party of China proposed "promoting the deep integration of the Internet, big data, artificial intelligence and the real economy", while Shanghai is in an important stage of accelerating the development of artificial intelligence, which provides a broader space for cooperation between the two sides. It is believed that the Institute will make great achievements in the field of artificial intelligence under the background of "favorable timing, favorable location and harmonious people". On the basis of good cooperation, the two sides are expected to further combine the scientific research advantages of Jiaotong University with the innovative technologies of Shangtang, so as to carry out cooperation in the field of artificial intelligence in terms of the introduction of high-end talents, technological research and development, and achievement transformation, so as to build a long-term stable and complementary cooperative relationship, and to build a world-class scientific research team in the field of artificial intelligence It has formed original and breakthrough high-level research results.
In his speech, Xu Li explained the connotation of the name of Qingyuan Research Institute and stressed the "three points" significance of Qingyuan echoing the "origin of all things": the first point echoed the motto of Shanghai Jiaotong University: "think of the source by drinking water", hoping to complete the research leading the industry relying on the strong research foundation of Shanghai Jiaotong University; the second point showed that the research institute is determined to pursue the "source" in basic research, and to use the industry research support Third, we hope to build the research institute into a "talent pool" and prepare enough "source power" for the development of artificial intelligence. Xu Li said that Shangtang has always attached great importance to the integration of production, teaching and research with Shanghai Jiaotong University, and has established a solid and mutual trust foundation in several years of practice. It has carried out diversified cooperation in scientific research, personnel training, international exchange and industrial application, and has achieved fruitful results. The establishment of Shanghai Jiaotong University Shangtang science and Technology Research Institute is another important achievement of the long-term friendly partnership between Shanghai Jiaotong University and Shanghai Jiaotong University. It is hoped that the two sides will further deepen cooperation, jointly build a first-class research institute with international influence, jointly complete the research leading the industry, and become a demonstration of attracting and cultivating high-end scientific and technological talents.
