Baidu’s ambitious plan for artificial intelligence

China’s search engine giant Baidu jumped onto the bandwagon of artificial intelligence as it showcased a number of achievements and industry solutions such as voice recognition, graphics recognition and consumer profiling at the Baidu World Conference in Beijing today.

“Most of these solutions would be available for our industry partners so that ordinary people can access these cutting edge technologies,” Robin Li, chairman and CEO of Baidu told the keynote speech.

Baidu Chief Scientist Andrew Ng announced the opening up of two open platforms, Baidu's deep learning research tools platform and its artificial intelligence portal to support a wide range of industries to enhance efficiency.

It is also offering the software up to the global community of AI researchers, an approach adopted by many tech firms to attract top talents as well as to allow the company to shape the development of the research field.

Graphics processing unit developer Nvidia’s co-founder and CEO Jen Hsun Huang also announced at the conference it is to partner with Baidu to build a comprehensive autonomous driving platform that allows Baidu to get a self-driving vehicle on the road.

Baidu also enters into a partnership with audio facility company Harman to work on smart home appliances solutions backed by the Chinese company’s AI software and solutions.
