West Bund twin towers launch global promotion

Shanghai AI Tower in Xuhui District launched its global promotion yesterday ahead of this year’s World Artificial Intelligence Conference.

Twenty leading AI companies from both home and abroad have moved into the over-200-meter twin buildings on the West Bund waterfront along the Huangpu River.

They include industry giants such as Microsoft Research Asia, Huawei and Alibaba as well as leading startups like United Imaging and Yitu.

Despite the novel coronavirus outbreak, Xuhui’s AI sector has grown by nearly 30 percent between January and June, said Fang Shizhong, the district’s director. He invited global AI companies and professionals to move to the AI Tower to develop the West Bund into an AI Valley.

By the end of 2020, 90 percent of the offices will be occupied with 3,000 employees.

Bart Selman, president of the Association for the Advance of Artificial Intelligence, congratulated the opening of AI Tower through a video.

“We already have had great connections for rapidly growing Shanghai’s AI community and just started the AAAI Squirrel Award for AI for the benefit of humanity,” he said.
