Mr. Li: the Internet has no demographic dividend but there is a tech dividend

Li believes that artificial intelligence will become the main driving force for the development of digital economy.


In his speech, li provided a set of data: over the past four years, Internet users in China have been growing at a slower rate than China's GDP, which means that the Internet's demographic dividend is gone.

At last year's world Internet conference, li said in his speech that the mobile Internet era was about to become a technology.To this, li said in a speech today, the disappearance of demographic dividend is its think the cause of the wireless Internet era is over, "said last year many people don't agree with, but the second half started."

Despite the demographic dividend has ended, but li believes that Internet users, Internet time, the increasing the amount of information on the net of it pushes the continuous rapid development of Internet industry promoters of artificial intelligent technology progress, therefore, the "demographic dividend without the dividend and technology, represented by artificial intelligence technology innovation will continue to promote the development of the digital economy."

According to li, the power of the digital economy in the future is artificial intelligence, and artificial intelligence has a big characteristic compared with past Internet technology, which is the ability to integrate vertically.He takes baidu's Apollo platform as an example, and based on autonomous driving technology, Apollo can make the industrial chain upstream and downstream different companies and even different industries participate in it, and many fields will benefit from it.Based on this, li believes that the development of artificial intelligence technology will promote the continuous improvement of technology and society.

Li is very excited by ai technology, he says, and we are living in a very great age because we are experiencing a technological change that is comparable to the industrial revolution.

Jack ma: fear that machines threaten people not to embrace technology to solve new problems


Ma is the fourth world conference on the Internet, talk about feelings, he said, "in the fourth year of wuzhen world conference on the Internet, I come every year, the year is here to share the experience of thinking, thinking, go back to have annual earnings."

In the past 20 years, he said, the Internet has been from scratch and over the next 30 years, the Internet has gone from there to nothing.The Internet is going deeper than any technological revolution in the future.In the future, the Internet will no longer be the Internet of Internet companies, it will be the Internet of all people, no one is everywhere, no one can leave the Internet, and worry about it.

Mr Ma said he was worried that machines would threaten people and that technology would take away much of the work, rather than embrace technology and solve new problems. "machines will make people's jobs more valuable and more dignified," he said.People have souls, beliefs and values, and confidence can control machines."

Ma believes that a new era will face new problems, human only become the new community, become a community of fate to face, not a container, but small express, not Made In China or Made In America, but is Made In the Internet, is not a B2C, but C2B.Today's problem is not the result of globalisation, but the incomplete nature of globalisation, which in the past has been 20 per cent and the future must be 80 per cent.Today's Internet companies are the darlings of The Times and have never had such an opportunity before.

Mr. Ma said he would earn respect by acting, sharing and benefiting.It is impossible for any country to solve all its problems, but only if it can be united.

Ma finally said that we should embrace technology and go into new sharing, inclusive and green era. Only in this way can human society be more durable and healthy.
