China's artificial intelligence industry started in the late 1970s. Under the influence of various factors, such as the continuous maturity of technology, the continuous promotion of policies, and the continuous increase of enterprise labor costs, the artificial intelligence industry has developed rapidly. As the data of iiMedia Research showed, after 2000, the scale of artificial intelligence core industry has entered a period of rapid growth. It is estimated that the scale of artificial intelligence core industry will reach 150 billion yuan in 2020 and 400 billion yuan in 2025. The number of artificial intelligence patents has increased steadily. After 2015, artificial intelligence has gradually become a national strategy and become one of the "New Infrastructure" industries. At the same time, artificial intelligence is gradually landing in many industries, such as finance, security, smart home, medical treatment, entertainment and so on, and presents a trend of complex and comprehensive application. In the future, brain computer interaction technology, as one of the cutting-edge technologies of artificial intelligence, will significantly improve the bandwidth of human-computer interaction and the response speed of equipment. At the same time, relying on its unique brain wave induction technology, it will provide new content for the application of artificial intelligence, and promote the commercialization process of artificial intelligence in many industries.
According to data from iiMedia Research, the scale of China’s AI chip market in 2019 is about 11.55 billion yuan. Driven by the popularization of 5G commercial use, policies, and technology, AI chips are expected to be used in cloud computing, security, and consumer electronics. Robotics and other fields achieve large-scale commercial use, and the AI chip market is expected to reach 43.68 billion yuan in 2021. However, with the accelerated popularization of artificial intelligence technology, downstream application fields have higher and higher requirements for AI computing power and energy consumption. The bottleneck of traditional Von Neumann architecture chips has gradually emerged, and AI chip will develop towards the integration of storage and computing. iiMedia Consulting analysts believe that although the development prospects of the storage-computing integrated AI chip are widely recognized, the overall development is still in the initial stage. From the realization of the integrated design of computing and storage, to the implementation of technology, mass production, and large-scale commercial use, there is still a long stage. Companies that can take the lead in achieving technological and product breakthroughs will be more easily supported by capital, talent, and the market.
