2019-12-24

(BEIJING, December 24, 2019) The seventh China-ROK-Japan Business Summit took place in Chengdu, Sichuan Province, on 24 December 2019, alongside the eighth Trilateral Summit Meeting among the People’s Republic of China, Japan, and the Republic of Korea (ROK). Chinese Premier Li Keqiang, South Korean President Moon Jae-in, and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe attended and delivered keynote speeches at the conference. Representing Chinese artificial intelligence (AI) companies, Fu Yingbo, President of Megvii Technology Limited, participated in a panel discussion themed “Science and Technology-Based Cooperation, Innovation-Driven Development”, providing an overview of Megvii’s business operations, products and technologies, and Core Principles of its AI practice.

 

As a world-leading AI company with core competency in computer vision, Megvii has made significant strides over the past eight years, empowering customers across different industry sectors with full-stack solutions encompassing advanced algorithms, hardware and software, promoting the commercialization of AI, and expanding the scale of the AI sector to spur further development, according to Fu.

 

Megvii’s mission is to power humanity with AI and the company believes technology is a force for good. However, while artificial intelligence has made life safer and more convenient in many ways, it has also brought challenges, such as privacy protection, acknowledged Fu Yingbo. To drive responsible development of AI technologies, Megvii has established Core Principles of its AI Practice and a robust system to ensure the implementation of these principles, including an AI Ethics Committee.

 

During the panel discussion, Fu Yingbo emphasized that cooperation and innovation are at the heart of Megvii’s value proposition. The company has forged partnerships with multiple Japanese and South Korean companies, evidenced by its cooperation with Mujin, a Japanese robot controller, in the supply chain IoT vertical. The two companies partnered to provide services for warehouse logistics, helping customers reduce costs and strengthen efficiency. Megvii’s Hetu, a robotics operating system, plays a pivotal role in streamlining automated storage and handling.

 

Megvii’s partnership with Mujin highlights that there are ample opportunities for Chinese, Japanese, and South Korean companies to continue to collaborate. Going forward, Megvii will continue to explore partnership opportunities with leading companies from Japan and South Korea. “A win for all would not be possible without cooperation, innovation and sharing,” Fu said.

 

The China-ROK-Japan Business Summit is the highest level business meeting among the three countries. The conference provides an opportunity for business communities from the three countries to interact and exchange high-level counsel and advice.
