Tech competition: China wants AI academies to keep tech talent supply going

According to the South China Morning Post, which quoted an award-winning AI specialist, China is getting ready to open independent AI academies in Beijing and Shanghai with the goal of developing the expertise required to expand the AI sector.

Zhu Songchun, the dean of Peking University’s School of Intelligence Science and Technology and a distinguished member of the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC), stated that the Ministry of Education, which is in charge of managing these academies, plans to advocate for the establishment of more of the institutions in more provinces.

Zhu argued that in order to lead the country’s technological innovation, Chinese academic institutions must embrace foreign collaboration and adopt a more internationally inclusive strategy.

During a May 11 CPPCC assembly, Zhu stressed how important it is to revitalise the academic scene and draw in talent from all over the world.

Zhu was cited as saying, “[We] should revitalise the academic community and intensify efforts to attract international talents,” by CPPCC Daily, a publication connected to China’s supreme political advisory body.

“Currently, artificial intelligence is at the forefront of global technological competition and presents both challenges and opportunities for the quality of China’s population, job market, educational reform and technological innovation,” he stated.

Zhu stated that although the exact timetable for the establishment of these AI schools is unknown, China should make sure that international AI specialists and students looking for work in China are treated fairly. He also suggested using private foundations to draw in top talent from around the world for artificial intelligence.

Zhu also favoured growing AI education programmes in Chinese colleges and creating a “innovation vitality index”. This involves giving college students training in AI across disciplinary boundaries so they have the necessary tools.

China’s vice-minister of science and technology, Long Teng, responded to Zhu’s proposals by reiterating his country’s commitment to fostering cross-border talent exchanges, especially in areas like artificial intelligence. He promised to develop guidelines for identifying overseas talent with proficiency in in-demand fields.

This occurs at the same time as Beijing is stepping up its AI initiatives to create a skilled, high-caliber digital workforce and boost its flagging economy.

Beijing acknowledges that artificial intelligence (AI) has the potential to revolutionise the economy and is working to address persistent issues like dropping birth rates and a dwindling workforce that have remained since the rise of California-based OpenAI more than a year ago.

The hunt for foreign talent intensifies as artificial intelligence (AI) plays a crucial role in the growing scientific and technological rivalry between China and the United States, highlighting issues related to commerce, ideology, and the South China Sea.
