This article expresses how China’s AItechnology grows, one of the example will be Baidu. Baidu, a top Internet browsersearching engine company in China, even Google and Facebook cannot compete withit in China, invested a new and strong machine-learning technology. Surprisingly,they released some of the AI code to public for AI software like searching,which most of companies would ever never do that. In my perspective after Iread the introduction of this article, the major reason is to enhance the educationin the group of relevant AI field.
A speech-recognition system has beencreated by their research lab recently which is called Deep Speech 2. As we knowthat Chinese characters is complicated and tricky in typing on phones. Baiducreated the system that numbers of applications from service companies could beaccessed by voice. Also, some of the people prefer to not typing because of thedifficulties of Chinese characters, a voice system like Deep Speech 2 wouldsolve the problems of using their own voices to search or send informationthrough internet.The features behind this system arefollowing: Computers embedded with this system can transfer voice in a record andanalyze it to character, one the other hand, recognize an image into multiple objects.Then, the system learns the words and images by recognizing machine language ifthey are new examples, and put them into central database with specific ways. Infact, Baidu’s code is implemented under Deep Speech 2 technology such that itruns on the most recent computer chips, which is Nervana.
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 but havetalent on developing such systems, could have opportunities on enhancing theirfeatures.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, open source,free source on code, will be used, which increases amount of learners who wantto explore.
