Recently, the intellectual property development research center of the State Intellectual Property Office released the "investigation and Research Report on the development of intellectual property in the field of new infrastructure (Artificial Intelligence)" (hereinafter referred to as the report). The report expounds the important role and practical significance of intellectual property rights for the new infrastructure of artificial intelligence, analyzes the patent status of basic platform technology fields of artificial intelligence and key technologies of typical applications, and puts forward some suggestions for promoting the new infrastructure of artificial intelligence with high quality, so as to provide reference for the development of new infrastructure of artificial intelligence in China.
Patent layout is the key to high quality development
The report points out that new infrastructure construction is an important carrier and inevitable demand for promoting China's urbanization development. Compared with the traditional "tiegongji" infrastructure, new infrastructure belongs to information infrastructure, integration infrastructure and innovation infrastructure, and has natural connection and commonality with intellectual property. Intellectual property is the starting point of protecting technological innovation and enabling new infrastructure Machinery, wall protection and catalysts will also become the core factors and leading forces to promote the high-quality development of new infrastructure.
The report emphasizes that as a key field of new infrastructure construction, the importance of artificial intelligence is reflected in the following aspects: first, artificial intelligence is the core component of the fourth industrial revolution and the only way to promote the transformation and upgrading of traditional industries to digital intelligence and realize the goal of technological and economic modernization; Second, artificial intelligence is the commanding point of a new round of global science and technology competition, and an important way to speed up the breakthrough of foreign technology blockade monopoly, enhance the comprehensive competitive strength, and cultivate new momentum and new advantages; Third, the application of artificial intelligence in the vertical field will greatly change the way of human production and life. It is an important way to liberate and develop the productive forces, promote the process of human civilization, and realize people's yearning for a better life.
According to the report, intellectual property is of great significance in promoting the high-quality development of new infrastructure of artificial intelligence: first, artificial intelligence itself belongs to intellectual property intensive technology, and intellectual property has strong relevance and control in the innovation and industrial application of key technologies of artificial intelligence; Second, artificial intelligence is the core field of new infrastructure, and it is also a subversive technology integrating traditional industries in the future. Intellectual property rights will provide basic guarantee for the application and development of new infrastructure and derivative industries of artificial intelligence. Third, to master the key core technology of artificial intelligence and realize the independent, safe and controllable development of new infrastructure of artificial intelligence, we must rely on intellectual property rights as a strong institutional support.
Deep ploughing technology creates favorable conditions for new infrastructure construction
The report also studies the patent status of typical applications of artificial intelligence in China. The results show that in the typical applications represented by intelligent customer service, intelligent medical treatment, intelligent transportation, intelligent energy, intelligent city, intelligent finance and intelligent manufacturing, artificial intelligence is related to voice technology, intelligent question answering, intelligent medical treatment, auto driving, knowledge map and big data In recent ten years, Chinese invention patent applications for key technologies such as image processing, intelligent map, image recognition and intelligent video analysis have shown a rapid growth trend, and the innovation ability and patent layout of domestic enterprises have been continuously improved.
The report shows that Chinese enterprises represented by Baidu, State Grid, Tencent, Ping'an technology and Huawei have effectively promoted the application of artificial intelligence technology. Among them, Baidu has ranked domestic enterprises in the number of invention patent applications in the fields of voice technology (1334), intelligent question answering (370), auto driving (973), knowledge map (673) and intelligent map (1433) First, it has obvious intellectual property advantages in intelligent customer service, intelligent transportation, intelligent energy, intelligent city, intelligent medical and other application scenarios, and is an important innovation force in the field of new infrastructure of artificial intelligence. State Grid, Tencent, Ping'an technology and other innovative entities also have certain strength in big data processing (1387 pieces of State Grid), intelligent video analysis (305 pieces of State Grid), image recognition (519 pieces of Ping'an Technology), intelligent medical (1163 pieces of Ping'an technology, 767 pieces of Tencent) and other fields and application scenarios.
