Xiao Longyuan believes that: The fourth industrial revolution that came,It is the fourth industrial revolution driven by artificial intelligence technology. The first three industrial revolutions (the steam age, the electrical age, and the information age) liberated human physical strength, while the development of artificial intelligence and cognitive intelligence liberated the human brain. Therefore, the fourth industrial revolution aimed at "intelligence" will be the last industrial revolution of mankind. Nowadays, we are in the key node before the new round of industrial transformation. Enterprises will use the technology and products to solve social complaints as the foothold, in order to truly realize the enterprise value and use the artificial intelligence technology and products to promote the industrial upgrading revolution.
The following content is organized from Xiao Longyuan's live speech:
The first three industrial revolutions: the country's strong The core technology must be mastered
The famous British Prime Minister Wins Churchill once said, "How far can you see the far past? The future, the progress of human society, is to develop more advanced technologies through repeated summing up and transformation of past technologies.
So far, humans have experienced three industrial revolutions:
The first industrial revolution (Steam Age), the core technology is improved steam engine technology, which brings about the liberation of manual labor and significantly improves human productivity. As the leader of this revolution, the British dominate the world;
The second industrial revolution (electrical era), the core technology is electrical technology, bringing A profound change in all production and lifestyle. Germany, which has outstanding performance at this stage, has become an industrial power;
The third industrial revolution (information age), this is exactly the era we live in. The core technology is the electronic computer. The electronic computer interconnects everything through the Internet node, which deeply affects everyone's work and life, and people are more closely connected. Leading the revolution to the United States,To lay the foundation for becoming the world's boss.
It can be seen that every industrial revolution will bring a leap-forward development to the world economy, which will also enable the country that took the lead in the industrial revolution to achieve comprehensive strength. It will rapidly increase in the short term, thus becoming the global economic center and gaining strong political influence and voice. Whoever masters the core technology of the industrial revolution, who is the strong country.
The last industrial revolution of mankind: AI as the core, aiming at liberating brain power
In my opinion,In the next 10 to 15 years, mankind will usher in the fourth industrial revolution, the intelligent age. The core technology of the intelligent era is artificial intelligence, and it is based on intelligent (AI) machines, multiple types of sensors, 5G (or even 6G networks).
The first three industrial revolutions (the steam age, the electrical age, and the information age) liberated the human body, and the fourth industry centered on artificial intelligence technology. The revolution is liberating the human brain. Therefore, I predict that the fourth industrial revolution with the goal of "intelligence" and the liberation of human brains will probably be the last industrial revolution of mankind. Almost all human physical and mental work will be replaced by machines. Who can master the core technology of artificial intelligence, who can lead the fourth industrial revolution (smart age).
Today, artificial intelligence technology is hot, but we are still in the era of weak artificial intelligence. In the era of weak artificial intelligence, the technology of depth learning was used to innovate the original simple machine model.Let it gradually break away from the logic of man. The wide application of big data and the enhancement of computer performance have enabled more and more new algorithms and new computing frameworks to be put into the application, which can handle more and more complex problems.
In the era of weak artificial intelligence, the ability of machines to think and understand things like humans needs to be improved. From weak artificial intelligence to strong artificial intelligence, relying on algorithm optimization and cognitive intelligence development is the key to the arrival of the fourth industrial revolution (intelligent era). With the advent of the era of strong artificial intelligence, I predict that it will take another 15 years.
What kind of company is the most profitable in the era of weak artificial intelligence?
In the current stage, artificial intelligence has launched unlimited development possibilities from the demand side, and has also spawned a batch of technology entrepreneurs. I believe that in the era of weak artificial intelligence, the biggest profit is these three types of enterprises:
The first category is a large Internet company, represented by Alibaba, Baidu and Tencent. They lead and even control Internet intelligence and physical intelligence. Commercialization, AI technology and brand benefits for commercial applications, open online and offline, collect more data through sensors, and generate new processes and business opportunities. Such companies have changed the Internet experience through smart speakers, smart stores, smart security, authentication, etc., blurring the boundaries between the digital world and the real world.
The second category is a company that holds large amounts of data, with state-owned enterprises,Such as state-owned banks, insurance, telecommunications companies, and the government as representatives, such enterprises need artificial intelligence technology to activate their own data, and generate value to achieve business intelligence (BI).
The third category is an artificial intelligence enterprise with AI core technology and algorithms, solution capabilities and engineering capabilities, such as ExpressCom, capable of using artificial intelligence technology. Encourage the second category of enterprises, and provide them with automatic intelligentization, such as fully automatic unmanned vehicles and nursing robots.
Although we are still semi-automatically intelligent, the artificial intelligence companies with core technology and solution capabilities have accumulated through years of deep cultivation, from perception and cognition. The general direction of the strong artificial intelligence trend in the general direction will be able to usher in the era of strong artificial intelligence.
Artificial intelligence is responsible, the value of the company is to solve social complaints
The wave of artificial intelligence technology has brought unlimited development opportunities for the above three types of enterprises, and also promoted China's unprecedented position as a leader. But at the same time, no matter what type of enterprise, it should meet the needs of society. Resolving social complaints As the mission of the enterprise, the only value of the existence of the enterprise is to solve social complaints. For example, people complained that the toilet was tired, so they invented the sitting toilet; people complained of boredom, so they invented the artillery (social) software and games; The company complained about the loss of the old staff's customer service, so it invented the intelligent customer service.
A good company, not to compete for market data, but to compete for quality, to Using technological means and commercial methods to solve social problems and promote social development, rather than looking for social loopholes to develop.
In my opinion, the industrial revolution is weighing Plastic new international division of labor and economic relations, artificial intelligence is new productivity, blockchain is a new production relationship, and the Internet of Things is a new means of production. Among them, artificial intelligence as me The new infrastructure,It shoulders the mission of improving production efficiency, reducing production costs, enhancing product innovation and enhancing user experience for traditional industries. The outbreak of artificial intelligence has brought about a huge release of social productivity, which will bring another unimaginable future world to mankind.
