This article expresses how China’sAI technology grows, one of the example will be Baidu (Knight, China’s Baidu Releases It AI Code, 2016). Baidu, a top Internetbrowser searching engine company in China, even Google and Facebook cannotcompete with it in China, invested a new and strong machine-learningtechnology.
Surprisingly, they released some of the AI code to public for AIsoftware like searching, which most of companies would ever never do that. Inmy perspective after I read the introduction of this article, the major reasonis to enhance the education in the group of relevant AI field.A speech-recognition system has beencreated by their research lab recently which is called Deep Speech 2. As weknow that Chinese characters is complicated and tricky in typing on phones.Baidu created the system that numbers of applications from service companiescould be accessed by voice. Also, some of the people prefer to not typingbecause of the difficulties of Chinese characters, a voice system like DeepSpeech 2 would solve the problems of using their own voices to search or sendinformation through internet.The features behind this system arefollowing: Computers embedded with this system can transfer voice in a recordand analyze it to character, one the other hand, recognize an image intomultiple objects.
Then, the system learns the words and images by recognizingmachine language if they are new examples, and put them into central databasewith specific ways. In fact, Baidu’s code is implemented under Deep Speech 2technology such that it runs on the most recent computer chips, which isNervana. Nowadays, Deep Speech 2 are spreadaround China as open sources so that most of technology companies including theinventor Baidu would operate it. One of the reasons is those companies wouldlike to be beneficial from exploring this technology. On the other hand, thoseresearchers and learners who have limited resources on social networking buthave talent on developing such systems, could have opportunities on enhancingtheir features.After I read this article, I realizethat China’s AI learning technology is almost in the same position in the worldbecause they invent new machine-learning language by learning Westernknowledge.
The technology is not fully mature. Therefore a smarter way, opensource, free source on code, will be used, which increases amount of learnerswho want to explore.
