SenseTime | September 06, 2022
SenseTime, a leading global artificial intelligence (AI) software company, hosted an industry forum themed "AI+: Meta-Innovation" at the 2022 World Artificial Intelligence Conference (WAIC) today. The forum gathered influential entrepreneurs, academic scholars and industry leaders to discuss how AI technology can empower and bring promising innovation to various industry sectors.
Dr. Xu Li, Executive Chairman of the Board and CEO of SenseTime, delivered a speech titled AI's Yingzao Fashi: Innovative Industrial Manual, and announced four new AI platforms during the forum. The four innovative AI platforms covering different fields including AI cloud computing, vehicle-road collaboration, AI in gaming and smart hospitals, aim to drive AI's scalable industrial application through standardized, more efficient, easy-to-use and low-cost platform services.
A number of honorable government officials attended the forum together with distinguished guest speakers who shared their views on how AI is changing the game across multiple industries, including Gong Ke, Executive Director, the Chinese Institute for the New Generation Artificial Intelligence Development Strategies, Ning Guang, Academician, Chinese Academy of Engineering, President of Ruijin Hospital affiliated Shanghai JiaoTong University School of Medicine, Zhang Yongwei, Vice President and Secretary-General, China EV100, Li Qian, VP of Vehicle Intelligence of HiPhi and Qiu Zhijie, Vice President and Dean of School of Experimental Art, Central Academy of Fine Arts.
A Standardized AI Manual to Enable Scalable AI Innovation
Inspired by Yingzao Fashi (Treatise on Architectural Methods or State Building Standards), the oldest extant Chinese technical manual on architecture originally published in the Song Dynasty, Xu Li shared his insights on how to achieve highly scalable AI innovation for a wide range of applications based on a standardized industry manual. He pointed out that many famous Chinese architectures, including Pavilion of the Old Drunkard, Foguang Temple and Pavilion of Prince Teng, were built by following Yingzao Fashi, which specified the ideal of universal standardization.
"These norms and consensus are gradually formed with the continuous accumulation of people's experience through summary, model deduction and simulation." Xu Li said in his speech. As AI develops towards commercialization, AI models become the standardized features for the intelligent era, supporting various applications such as advanced driver assistance system (ADAS), city management, surgical planning and intelligent agents in games, in which issues can be resolved through the same standardized AI models. Currently, SenseTime has produced more than 49,000 commercial AI models, which can be grouped into different AI solutions for various industries.
A standardized production process is also needed to facilitate industrial standardization. Under this concept, SenseTime has achieved general AI capabilities with the standardization of AI model production, covering AI infrastructure, data labeling, pre-trained base models, and industrial applications. SenseTime's automatic data production line increases the speed of automatic data labeling by 600 times.
"Industries cannot be formed without standards", Xu Li said, standardization will lead to a flourishing AI industrialization. Through powerful infrastructure, we can produce high quality and standardized models with replication in various scenarios, as well as efficiently manage the whole process of model production. It is worth mentioning that standardization is not a constraint and will ultimately create infinite possibilities in AI applications.
Four New AI Platforms to Commercialize AI at a Large Scale
The SenseCore AI Infrastructure, as an innovative "Yingzao Fashi" developed by SenseTime, achieves highly efficient, low-cost and scalable AI innovation and empowerment for industries. At the 2022 WAIC, SenseTime launched four new AI platforms including SenseCore AI Cloud, SenseAuto V2X, SenseMAP Multi-Agent Platform and SenseTime Smart Hospital Solution, with the aim of accelerating industrial upgrades through various AI technologies.
