On October 23rd, today, Peking University's new engineering international forum was held. Baidu's founder, chairman and CEO Robin Li attended.
At the meeting, Robin Li said that China has the best soil for cultivating leading talents and strategic scientists.It also stressed that in the next five years, Baidu will train 5 million AI talents for the society and make continuous contributions to the construction of national strategic scientific and technological forces.
On the basis of industrial practice and technology landing, Robin Li takes autopilot as an example and proposes that Baidu and Tesla are both "engineering thinking".
Robin Li pointed out that the path of Tesla's choice is gradual gradation of automation. The path chosen by Baidu is the gradual change of the range of autopilot, starting from the total driverless driving of some roads, and gradually expanding the geographical area, so as to move towards L5 level fully automatic driving.
It is reported that Baidu has specially launched the automatic driving travel service platform "radish run",At present, it has been operated in Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou, Cangzhou, Changsha and other places, and has received more than 400000 passengers.
It is worth mentioning that not long ago, Robin Li also published an article entitled "taking the smart car and taking the road of wisdom".
Robin Li said in his article that an intelligent transportation system should be able to solve the congestion problem effectively.Now the common "purchase restriction" and "travel restriction" policies in big cities are expected to be cancelled in 5-10 years.
He believes that intelligent transportation system can greatly reduce the probability of traffic accidents. About 94% of traffic accidents are caused by human factors, including dangerous driving behaviors such as drunk driving.
At the same time, with the further maturity of unmanned driving, smart cars, intelligent roads, vehicle road coordination, intelligent traffic management system, etc. will reduce the probability of traffic accidents.
