Artificial Intelligence (AI) is set to be the great frontier for technological development over the next decade, reaching into all aspects of our lives, from how we interact with our devices and vehicles, to how we receive education and medical treatment.
For companies at the forefront of this exciting yet costly endeavor, finding a base that offers support and access to talent is a huge question. The answer for an increasing number is Suzhou Industrial Park (SIP).
SIP currently has some 160 enterprises whose core focus is AI, with some 400 whose operations are AI-related. The 160 AI-focused tenants account for nearly 20,000 employees, and have a total industrial output of about 36 billion RMB in 2017.
