Robin Li talks about AI: Large models can only be considered successful if they have millions of AI applications
On the morning of November 9, the 2023 World Internet Conference Wuzhen Summit Internet Entrepreneurs Forum was held. Robin Li, founder, chairman and CEO of Baidu, mentioned in his speech that the ultimate goal of technological innovation is application. The sign that humans have entered the AI era is the emergence of a large number of AI native applications, rather than the emergence of a large number of large models. Large models can Supports the development of countless AI native applications, but large models can only be considered successful if they have millions of AI applications.
Robin Li believes that large models and computing power do not generate value in themselves. The key is to use large model and other technologies to build a prosperous AI native ecosystem, which can become a direct driving force for economic growth. The intelligent emergence of large models is the key to developing native applications of AI. Native applications of AI are developed based on the ability to generate logical memory based on the intelligent emergence of large models. The so-called intelligent emergence is to teach it things it did not know before and solve problems that it has not solved before. question.
He said that there are currently misunderstandings in the development of large models. First of all, dedicated large models do not have the ability to emerge intelligently. "I have communicated with some industry entrepreneurs. They are still buying cards and collecting chips and want to practice large models from scratch. I think This is the wrong direction. To develop a usable large model, there are high technical barriers and high costs, and repeated development will cause a huge waste of social resources."
