China says half of its new cars will be AI-powered by 2020
SHANGHAI (Reuters) – China aims to implement artificial intelligence technology in at least half of all its new cars by 2020 and cover 90% of its big cities and highways with a wireless network that can support smart vehicles, its top state planner said on Friday.
These goals are part of a draft for a national smart car strategy that the National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC) wants to seek public feedback for, it said in a statement.
China is aiming to become a world leader in artificial intelligence by 2025, with an aim to grow its core AI industries to over 150 billion yuan ($22.15 billion) by 2020. Smart cars are a key part of the project.
