Huangpu to launch new AI applications

Showcasing the city’s latest achievements on artificial intelligence, Huangpu District will launch a number new intelligent applications at landmark sites, like the Nanjing Road Pedestrian Mall, the Bund and People’s Square, to better serve residents and tourists.

The Huangpu government unveiled a batch of new policies and industrial guidelines yesterday to encourage and support the integrated development of AI with other businesses. The district aims to become a demonstration base for AI applications and attract the world’s top AI companies.

As part of the efforts, the Nanjing Road Pedestrian Mall will undergo intelligent renovations for its popular shopping complexes such as the Shimao International Plaza.

The number of visitors on the popular walking street will be closely monitored to ensure safety. Intelligent facilities will offer accurate guidance to shoppers, while the malls will able to send promotion information to their target customers, said Hu Yong, director of Huangpu’s science commission.

AI will also be used to send alerts on visitors’ numbers, assist patrolling police officers and enhance the security management of the Bund, Hu added. Some of the applications have already been launched, such as facial recognition, ground sensors and big data analysis.

For areas around People’s Square, which is being developed into a major destination for international art performances, AI will help boost the effects of performances, improve the management of cultural venues as well as assist in the repairs of cultural relics at local museums.
