[New Chien Reading Guide] Baidu announced that Lu Qi no longer served as president and COO in July. Li Yanhong first appeared in public and participated in the Guizhou Digital Fair. This is the third time Robin Li has participated. This year's theme is still AI. From the speech of Li Yanhong, we have a glimpse of Baidu All in AI's insistence.
After “Baidu lost its land”, Li Yanhong first made public appearances and participated in the Guizhou Digital Fair.
Not long ago, the Baidu Union Summit was held in Haikou, and Li Yanhong was absent for the first time. Plus Lu Qi’s resignation of the post of President in July, the outside world once considered the Baidu AI strategy to be put to the test. .
Today, Robin Li participated in the Guizhou Gathering Fair for the third time and the theme of his speech was still AI. From the speech of Li Yanhong, we have a glimpse of Baidu All in AI's insistence.
The time for the production of Baidu unmanned vehicles is running out.
After this year's National “Two Conferences”, the question asked by the reporter about Li Yanhong was Baidu’s production of unmanned vehicles. ".
"I praised a seaport at that time and said that there would be mass production of unmanned vehicles in July this year. We have minibuses that cooperate with Xiamen Jinlong, and there is no automatic car with no steering wheel on the steering wheel. Will be in production."
It is now May. < Strong> I still have more than one month left. Robin Li has expectations, anxiety, and worries. She is not worried that the car can't produce enough lines to produce, but is worried about whether the car is safe enough. "For us, safety is the most important aspect of autopilot. It is our First Day.
Nothing can be wrong, but it's safe. Can't be wrong. Once wrong, once an incident occurs, it is possible that the entire technology will stall for one year to two years.year. More importantly, human security is the most valuable, so Baidu cannot tolerate mistakes in security.
Li Yanhong put a video of Baidu's unmanned vehicles in Xi'an. Baidu's unmanned car ran out of a dog next to a turn. The car was parked in front of the dog. Come down and let it go before you open.
The fast driving of unmanned vehicles on highways and closed highways is relatively safe because the road conditions are relatively simple. But there are all sorts of unexpected things on open city roads, and they can't control themselves very well. This is a very common and very difficult problem in autopilot. To solve this problem, the unmanned vehicles can truly become No one can autopilot.
In addition, Robin Li also said that from the opening of the code to mass production later, a lot of new code has been added, of which nearly 50% of the code is for security increase. , so a lot of experience on safety, to comply with car regulations.
Baidu's "simple search": Adding AI without advertising
After finishing autopilot, Robin Li begins to talk about Baidu's core business, search.
Li Yanhong is Baidu's search platform on several occasions, and Baidu's new search app “Simple Search” has two main features:
AI and None advertising.
AI features: APP's accurate understanding of voice, images, and natural language. You can use voice to recall, or you can use the camera to take a picture and it can identify its meaning.
Also, AI can be thousands of people, and different people have different results when they search. Simply put, for example, there can be an adult mode (standard mode) or a children mode. It can distinguish whether a voice is an adult's voice or a child's voice, and the corresponding search results are also different.
Never advertise. Li Yanhong said that the simple search APP is ad-free, in the search resultsThere is no advertisement. "I later read the online commentary. Most people do not believe it. If you say you lie, how can you possibly not have advertising?" Li Yanhong said at the scene that "simple search" never puts advertisements in search results.
"Simple search" was not recently launched. It was developed as early as July 2017 and launched on a low-key basis. It promoted a wave after the Baidu Union Ecological Summit. After experiencing the experience of Xinzhiyuan, it was discovered that the APP did not join various small advertisements. For example, search for "medical treatment", there is no commercial recommendation.
Li Yanhong's Four Principles of AI Ethics
In addition to the rapid advancement of technology in the AI era, it is true that with the landing of products, people can feel the need for new rules, new values, and new ethics besides the AI's ability to bring results to people.
"All new AI products and new technologies must have a common philosophy and rules that everyone follows. So I thought of four things."
1, AI The highest principle is safety and control.
2. AI's vision for innovation is to promote more equal access to technology and capabilities for humans.
3. The existence value of AI is to teach people to learn and to grow, not to transcend humans and replace human beings.
4. The ultimate ideal of AI is to bring more freedom and possibility to mankind.
First look at the first point.
AI's Supreme Principle is safe and controllable. If an unmanned vehicle is attacked by hackers, it may become a killing weapon. This is absolutely not allowed, so it must be made safe and controllable. This is also the first “day of Baidu” that Li Yanhong first emphasized the safety of automatic driving.
The second point, today looks like BAT, or the US Facebook, Google, Microsoft, these companies have strong AI capabilities, but the world is not only the ability of these large companies to need AI, Technology, there are tens of millions of people in the worldCompanies, organizations, and institutions also need AI's technology and capabilities.
How can we allow all companies and all people to acquire equal access to AI's technologies and capabilities in a new era, not just the patents of a few large companies, how can we prevent them in the AI era because of technology? Inequality leads people to become increasingly unequal in all aspects of life and work. This is an industry that needs to think hard.
Thirdly, AI made a lot of things not only to imitate people simply, but also what AI people like to people. For example, people like entertainment gossip, AI hundred percent information flow promote entertainment gossip It's not what we want to be able to allow people to stay in the room for more than a minute without letting it take less than a minute.
"We hope that through AI, through personalized recommendations, information to people can be teach people to learn." Li Yanhong said that you spent an hour through AI and found this paragraph Something good in time is not the same as the original, so AI will make us better people.
The last point. Many people ask, what can people do if they have a lot of work or labor gradually replaced by machines?
Li Yanhong said that people can rest .
People now work five days off for two days a week, and maybe two days off for five days in the future. But more importantly, it is very likely that because of artificial intelligence, labor no longer becomes a means of people’s livelihood, but it becomes a demand for people.
"You want to work, want to innovate, want to create, so you go to work, this is the ultimate ideal of AI, we want to bring more freedom and possibility to humanity."
What is the mission of AI? It is not a substitute. It is to make technology loyal to human beings, to serve humanity, and to make human life better.
