In Baidu's case, this is also the first shot it launched in 2020.
But this isn't just an investment. The two sides have a collaborative business layout

According to the announcement on signing business cooperation agreement issued by Yuxin technology, behind Baidu's strategic investment, the corresponding cooperation between the two parties is as follows:
On the one hand, product development cooperation, co-construction includes financial industry cloud, Internet finance core overall products and solutions, database, big data intelligent analysis platform, block chain and trusted computing and other products.
On the other hand, business cooperation, baidu Intelligent Cloud provides relevant product technology capabilities, Yuxin technology provides and guarantees quality sales leads and facilitates the implementation of relevant projects for cooperation between the two sides.
In the field of financial cloud, Baidu gets more potential energy for development, in addition to investment layout, more important or practice
In fact, Baidu has a long-term layout in the financial field itself. Before that, Baidu has completed the layout of financial business fields including banking (Baixin), third-party payment (duxiaoman), fund sales, insurance, credit investigation, exchange, etc.
As a leading AI platform company in the world, baidu intelligent cloud is an important carrier and exporter of Baidu AI to B business. It promotes AI industrialization with technology and realizes intelligent upgrading of industries in all walks of life.
The latest report "China Financial cloud solution market tracking research" released by IDC, a US market research institution, ranks China's financial cloud services for the first time. The top three are Alibaba, Sinosoft and Tencent respectively. Baidu financial cloud, which entered the market later, has the fastest growth rate.

In the financial field, based on Baidu's forward-looking AI strategy and achievements, the financial cloud has always maintained rapid development. ABC (AI Artificial Intelligence, big data, Cloud Computing) has become the biggest advantage of Baidu financial cloud.
Cloud computing isn't a new species, but cloud computing services combined with AI show unexpected explosive power.
And after the financial word of mouth started, the AI technology brand resounding Baidu in industry, agriculture, telecommunications, health care, education and other industries to replicate, gradually found decode
Firm AI to B strategic investment and form
Baidu AI architecture upgrade, on the one hand means Baidu in the AI road firm investment and determination, Baidu is investing more resources for the AI to B campaign. At the same time, it also shows that the intelligent track of Baidu industry is more clearly focused and increases the strategic investment of key industries.
In his email, Mr Wang said:
Baidu began to lay out AI in 2010, and it has been ten years since 2020. Baidu AI ranks first in the industry in terms of patent number, in-depth learning and open-source platform, daily AI usage, ecological scale of developers, AI cloud, etc.
Just in the past 2019, baidu AI has entered the stage of industrial mass production. Throughout this year, the theme words appearing in Baidu AI areIndustrial intelligence。
Whether it's the AI developer conference or a series of AI landing progress, the core is to promote the industrial intelligence, and Baidu hopes to become a base provider in this wave of industrial upgrading.
So the question is, facing the era of industrial intelligence, what is Baidu's strategy and tactics?
First of all, we need to know what is industrial intelligence? Industrial intelligence is to enable all walks of life to use AI technology to process big data in the cloud.
Baidu's AI transformation in recent years is undoubtedly to work in this direction again.
And the entry of giants, holding high, quietly has formed a platform mode, platform effect and platform play.
In the latest Boston Consulting Report, a technology company like Baidu Google is not only regarded as the leader of AI technology, but also as the base company and platform company in the era of industrial intelligence.
AI technology is not only a company's ability to drive its own business, but also enables more industries to complete upgrading.
In fact, it's not difficult to understand Baidu's previous series of to B investments if we can see clearly Baidu's thinking in this regard and connect points into lines.
In March 2019, baidu invested RMB 550 million in hande information;
14.43 billion yuan invested in Neusoft holdings in September 2019;
Now,$600 million investment bank IT program provider Yuxin Technology;
In recent years, they are all technical solution integrators in the vertical field of investment, but none of them is a company that wins in the IT era.
Baidu's investment, perhaps, will help the company transform into an AI-era programme integrator.
After that, they will further help more traditional fields and companies complete the AI transformation.
Previous investment in capital markets has often been used
But the old
Now, it's time to understand leverage in terms of technology.
