In addition to talent development, technical research and ecosystem development, the alliance aims to enable collaborative innovation among society, industry, education, and research. To facilitate this vision, the alliance will provide a comprehensive service platform that covers capital, think tanks, intellectual property, technology brokers, data intelligence, legal services, and more. This platform will actively cooperate with industrial alliances, along with platforms for international cooperation and experiences. The goal is to integrate education, talents, and technology, creating a new AI industry ecosystem, building new models, and pioneering new practices.
The intertwining and mutually reinforcing relationship between technology and education has been the driving force behind humanity’s continuous progress for thousands of years, forming a dual spiral structure. Each significant technological revolution has had a profound impact on how human society is organised and its way of life. Today, as the wave of artificial intelligence approaches us with an irreversible momentum, the XJTLU-Baidu Artificial Intelligence Innovation Alliance becomes the key that allows us to actively embrace the future and change.
Breaking away from traditional models, the alliance uses deep integration to forge a seamless “industry-academia-research” innovation chain. With an open approach to society, it gathers innovative elements and resources. XJTLU is determined to pioneer a unique education model that blends science and education and integrates industry and academia. It aims to facilitate the fusion of the talent, innovation, industry, and funding chains, laying the foundation for creating a collaborative ecosystem for AI innovation.
The future has already arrived, and we are all part of it.
