SHANGHAI, Sept. 2, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — 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.
SenseCore AI Cloud is developed into an out-of-the-box industrial-grade AI toolchain underpinned by the SenseCore AI Infrastructure. Without additional investment, it can facilitate AI infrastructure’s comprehensive digital management, effectively meeting the requirements for future industrial AI pipelines as well as the large-scale training, verification and reasoning for AI models. SenseCore AI Cloud can help customers double the efficiency of AI research and development with lower infrastructure costs by providing a full-stack deep learning platform and a series of advanced algorithm platforms and models. Essentially, it creates a new paradigm of AI cloud infrastructure that innovatively empowers various application scenarios including autonomous driving, smart city, AI for Science and Metaverse.
SenseAuto V2X is SenseTime’s vehicle-road synergy platform committed to providing a one-stop analysis and decision-making solution for future mobility by integrating “smart cars, intelligent roads and collaborative cloud”. Through the fusion control and analysis of vehicle and road information, it can achieve intelligent operation of “vehicle, road and cloud” platforms to improve traffic management efficiency. SenseAuto V2X can transmit sensory output from roadside sensors to the vehicle and empower intelligent vehicles with more comprehensive sensing capabilities to better adapt to complex traffic scenarios. Currently, SenseAuto V2X is deployed in the management of national Internet of Vehicles (IoV) pilot zones, closed parks, highways and urban traffic, facilitating the decision-making for traffic management with higher efficiency and safety.
SenseMAP Multi-Agent Platform is SenseTime’s tailor-made AI gaming production and operation platform. Leveraging the strength in computing power, deep learning and intelligent decision-making technologies, SenseMAP provides game developers one-stop full-cycle production services, covering auto-adaptation in gaming ecosystem, auto-creation of gaming content, and auto-operation of gamer community..
