In order to help software talents have an in-depth understanding of the application of artificial intelligence in industrial manufacturing, on March 5, the second session of the Free Public Lecture for Dongguan Software Talents entitled "Approaching the Songshan Lake AI Island" was held in Songshan Lake High-tech Innovation Park.
This year, under the guidance of the Municipal Bureau of Industry and Information Technology, the Dongguan Digital Industry Association held a series of free public lectures for software talents to enliven the software industry and enhance the concentration of software talents. Prior to this, the first session of the Free Public Lecture has introduced Huawei, leading all software talents to get a glimpse of how Huawei realizes digital transformation using the Huawei Cloud.
The second session was guided by the Dongguan Municipal Bureau of Industry and Information Technology, hosted by the Dongguan Digital Industry Association, and co-organized by Songshan Lake High-tech Innovation Park, CyberAce Technology Co., Ltd., and Dongguan Technology Business Incubator Association. In this session, participants came to the Songshan Lake AI Island and explored how artificial intelligence has been applied in real settings.
In December 2020, Songshan Lake AI Island was officially launched in Songshan Lake High-tech Innovation Park. In the future, the island will focus on the building of five functional sections, including "AI Island Expert Database and Information Exchange Platform", "AI Application Talent Training", "Transforming AI Achievements in Science and Technology ", "AI Special Venture Capital Fund", and "AI Business Incubation and Application Scenarios”. Songshan Lake will integrate information, talent, venture capital and application scenarios.
