LAS VEGAS, Jan 13, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --

News Summary:

  • The China Information Technology Expo (CITE) 2017 will be held from April 9 to 11, 2017.
  • CITE officials held a successful press conference in Las Vega, Nevada on January 6, 2017.
  • Leaders from CITE showcased the rising Chinese firms that will lead the way in the fields of artificial intelligence, virtual reality and intelligent robots, three themes that will generate the most buzz at this year's exhibition

Artificial Intelligence is the core theme of the Fifth CITE 2017, and a future trend as well. Kai-fu Lee once predicted that in the next 10 years, 90% percentage of occupations like translators, correspondents, assistants, security guards, salesmen, servicemen, etc. will be replaced by robots, partially or completely. Meanwhile, some new types of jobs will emerge. A part of traditional work will be able to proceed with the help of artificial intelligence. The conference CITE just held on Jan 6th, 2017 in Las Vegas (also known as a first man-robot co-hosted press conference), has perfectly explained this. At the conference, they used the intelligent robot to do the translation work, instead of interpreters.

Ahead of the fifth annual China Information Technology Expo (CITE) in April 2017, members of the press and media outlets got a chance to meet some of the most promising technology firms coming out of Beijing, Shenzhen, Shanghai and elsewhere across the world's second-largest economy. To say it was a successful event would be an understatement. The unprecedented man-robot co-hosted press conference has taken artificial interpretation to a new era.

CITE officials presented the primary themes at this year's exhibition -- virtual reality, artificial intelligence, intelligent robots and intelligent hardware and startup functions -- and the brands that will certainly generate the most domestic and international buzz this spring. FANUC, SIASUN, Foxconn and UBTECH were just some of the companies on hand.

Wu Shengwu, deputy director of the electronics department of the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, referred to one such leading AI company that will educate the public on this technology.

"With the theme of 'starting the intelligent age', CITE 2017 will mainly create smart home, intelligent hardware, VR, sensors and IoT, big data, Internet+, intelligent manufacturing and other industrial hot areas in the theme hall," Shengwu said in a statement. "In addition, we have reached an agreement with iFLYTEK, which is a well-known enterprise in China, regarding the setting of the artificial intelligence hall. It will focus on iFLYTEK to comprehensively demonstrate the whole ecological chain of artificial intelligence."

Right after the keynote speeches, there was "The awards ceremony of Video China Brand Awards". Video China Brand Awards, the international authorized awards mainly designed for China Consumer Electronics brands during CES, are hosted by China Video Industry Association. Famous China Brands like TCL, Hisense, Skyworth, Changhong, Konka, etc. were given this horned awards. Together with the guests attended, "China Video Industry Association" announced them the awards. And in collaboration with CITE Organizing Committee, China Video Industry Association will organize quite a few onsite activities related to video industry in the coming CITE 2017 in April.

During the event, iFLYTEK successfully launched a brand-new product that advances AI.

Journalists, columnists and bloggers were able to meet the companies disrupting the tech industry as well as officials from the Chinese government. Although some may have been concerned about any potential language barriers, the bilingual event was assisted by an intelligent robot, which dismantled language roadblocks and ensured everything would run smoothly.

CITE has covered a wide variety of tech topics since its inception in 2013. In its first year, CITE focused on mobile phones, 4k televisions and smart homes. By 2016, CITE was honing in on wearable devices, smart medical services and new energy vehicles. This year, CITE will be promoting the rise and integration of AI in the marketplace and in society.

The participating tech firms, which also received awards at a ceremony in Las Vegas, will spotlight the growing AI trend and how the concept is changing the world for the better; one microchip, one idea and one robot at a time. In April, those in attendance will be able to garner a first-hand glimpse into automobiles manufactured with AI, businesses embracing automation with the aid of AI and devices equipped with AI that can help everyone from seniors to students, from working professionals to stay-at-home parents.

These rising Chinese tech firms, which are the behemoths that will be household names, will show how powerful AI can and will be in our daily lives in the coming years. The fifth annual CITE will educate the public about how the future of AI is not an apocalyptic one, but rather a future of amazement, ingenuity and wealth.

The fifth China Information Technology Expo (CITE) will take place from April 9 to April 11, 2017.
