JD Explore Academy jointly published the first AI responsibility manifesto with tens of institutions and innovative enterprises at the Global Digital Economy Conference held during Aug 2 to 3.

The manifesto focuses on several aspects. For example, the AI system should match the sustainable development concept, as well as adhering to the principles of trustworthy AI and transparency.

Fengxiang He, algorithm scientist of JD Explore Academy, shared during a video speech, “An open attitude, collaboration, synergy and sharing will become normal trends for the AI industry. JD Explore Academy will deeply develop trustworthy AI, super deep learning and quantum machine learning. We aim to promote continuous innovation in fundamental scientific areas to help with industrial development.”

“JD will open its resources and capabilities to build the industrial ecosystem, in order to promote the country’s real economic growth,” added He. The conference, organized by multiple national government departments and the Beijing municipal government, has discussed key topics including innovation and responsibility in AI.

During the leading AI conference WAIC held in July, JD Explore Academy co-published China’s first whitepaper on the concept of trustworthy AI with the China Academy of Information and Communications Technology (CAICT), explaining the topic in a thorough way.

During the Global Digital Economy Conference, 44 enterprise cooperation MOUs were planned and 25 projects landed, with the total expected scale worth around RMB 1.84 billion yuan.
