Gao Yunlong, vice chairman of the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference and chairman of the All-China Federation of Industry and Commerce (ACIFC), went to Baidu for research on July 30, accompanied by ACFIC vice chairman Li Zhaoqian and ACCIC vice president and Baidu’s president and CEO Li Yanhong.
 
Gao Yunlong watched the demonstration of Baidu’s core products and applications, and investigated their self-developed unmanned system while asking questions about the technical research and product development.
 
Then he had a meeting with related technicians and leaders of Baidu, listening to their thoughts on corporate development, artificial intelligence research and development and work on participating in infrastructure construction.
 
Gao concluded with a speech where he acknowledged Baidu’s fast growth in the past two decades.
 
He said, since its establishment, Baidu had been deeply engaged in technology research and development, product innovation and talent training.
 
Its scientific and technological capability and technical level are in a leading position in relevant fields at home and abroad.
 
Especially in the field of artificial intelligence, the release of the self-developed intelligent operating system and the development of an open platform for autonomous driving have played a leading role in demonstrating and leading private enterprises in the field of scientific and technological innovation.
 
During the COVID-19 epidemic, Baidu’s search function provided a channel for the public to obtain authoritative information about the virus. Its products such as face recognition and AI phone greatly improved the screening efficiency and played a positive role in the fight against the pandemic.
 
At present, facing economic downturn, Baidu has actively responsed to the “six stabilize” and “six guarantee” appeal made by the central government by participating in infrastructure construction such as the “smart traffic” and “smart city” program, and has constantly improved the management level of modernization of the city through technology innovation including big data, cloud computing and artificial intelligence, and has also found a new growth point for the company development.
 
Gao extended four hopes on the company’s future development.
 
First, he hoped that the company leaders could have strategic thinking to analyze the international and domestic situation in a comprehensive, dialectical and long-term perspective.
 
President Xi Jinping’s remarks on taking domestic circulation as the main body is by no means the meaning of operating behind closed doors, instead, globalization is the historical trend.
 
We should adhere to an open and cooperative approach in planning the direction of the company’s future development and contribute to building an open world economy, Gao said.
 
Second, he asked the company to learn President Xi’s “strategy of innovation-driven development” to see that scientific and technological innovation is an important force that promotes the development of a country, a nation and even the entire human society.
 
He wanted the company to foster a vision of promoting scientific and technological development and progress in China and the world, and improving the quality of production and life of the Chinese people and the whole mankind.
 
At present, it is more important to strengthen scientific and technological innovation, strive to be the “science and technology leader” to break through the bottleneck of key technologies, and lay a foundation for dealing with potential risks and challenges.
 
The third, he asked them to give full play to Baidu’s advantages and devote themselves to creating a clear and clean cyberspace.
 
Baidu’s search, news and other applications have become an important entry for the public to obtain information.
 
Gao said that Baidu should actively fulfill its social responsibility as a media platform, objectively disseminate news and information,  actively convey positive social energy, use the outstanding achievements of human civilization and China’s fine traditional culture to nourish cyberspace and make positive efforts to enhance the civilization of the whole society.
 
Fourth, he asked Li Yanhong, Baidu’s president and CEO, to be a good leader and a good player of participating in governance as ACCIC’s vice president and a renowned entrepreneur with social influence.
 
Gao asked Li to publicize government’s policy towards private enterprises and entrepreneurs by taking himself as a story, and to continue supporting the work of ACFIC and ACCIC.
 
Directors of ACFICs research department also attended the inspection tour.
