Israel and China to open three Artificial Intelligence centres E-mail

Three Israeli-Chinese Artificial Intelligence technology centres are to be constructed in Israel and China, with an initial investment of US$10 million, according to an agreement signed on 20 March in China by the University of Haifa, the Hangzhou Wahaha Group and the Institute of Automation at the Chinese Academy of Sciences.

The Israeli centre will be located in Haifa, while its Chinese counterparts will be located in Hangzhou and Beijing. The institutes will aim to develop and industrialise cutting-edge application technologies from the University of Haifa and the Chinese Academy of Sciences, including vision tracking through mobile devices, image processing and big data for medical applications, 3D image learning, chip technologies, biometric identification and more.

The initiative will be financed by Zong Qinghou, chairman and CEO of the Hangzhou Wahaha Group, an umbrella of private companies and the largest beverage producer in China. The agreement with the University of Haifa is its first step in fostering academia and research, with construction of the institute set to be completed within the next two years.
