  On 28th July, Li Qiang, Party Secretary of CPC Jiangsu Provincial Committee and Chairman of the Standing Committee of Jiangsu Peoples’ Congress met with Daniela Rus, Academician of US Academy of Engineering, MIT Professor and Director of Artificial Intelligence (AI) Lab in Nanjing.

  Li Qiang extended a warm welcome to Rus for his first visit to Jiangsu, and his congratulations on the cooperation agreement between MIT AI Lab and Suzhou Industrial Park. He said AI development is an irreversible trend, and has already penetrated into our production and life. Jiangsu not only enjoys competitive R&D strengths and solid industrial foundation, but also a vast market place for AI application, since Jiangsu has very strong manufacturing and rich S&T and human resources. In particular, Suzhou is committed to building an AI industrial cluster and a national-level AI innovation center. MIT AI Lab is among those labs that are equipped with the strongest R&D capacity. We hope to build on our existing cooperation and focus on exchanges in AI, and to seek complementary and win-win development by extending the pragmatic exchanges to other sectors.

  After a brief introduction of his AI Lab, Rus said that MIT attaches great importance to the pragmatic exchanges with Jiangsu in industrial technology. MIT AI Lab wishes to leverage its strengths to work with Jiangsu, and deliver better services out of research results to production and people’s life.
