China has revealed plans to make at least 50 percent of its new vehicles have artificial intelligence technology by 2020 as part of a broader strategy. The use of AI in vehicles will be supplemented with a wireless network for supporting smart vehicles that will cover 90 percent of the big cities and highways in China.
This is based on a report in Reuters that says that China has declared these goals are part of a draft for a national smart car strategy.
The National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC) is actively seeking feedback from the public about this new strategy.
China is seeking to become a global leader in the field of artificial intelligence by 2025, and has aggressive plans to grow its core AI industries to over 150 billion yuan (USD 22.15 billion) by 2020. Smart cars will play a key role in the project.
The NDRC is planning on forming a national team comprising officials from the State Council in order to guide smart car innovation. Policies that could offer incentives for related business including tax cuts could be in the offing.
The NDRC also said it hoped that China would gain a global reputation for quality smart cars by 2035.
