Artificial intelligence undergraduate programme to be launched in 35 Chinese universities

Artificial intelligence will become an undergraduate major at 35 universities in China. Though AI and machine-learning courses are already available in universities throughout the country, this four-year program will be the first to confer a bachelor’s degree devoted to the field. As competition with the US to dominate the field becomes more and more heated, Chinese industries and government are interested in cultivating qualified and experienced experts in the field to remedy the lack of home-grown talents. The goal for China is to become the world’s front runner in AI by 2020 and dominate the field by 2030.
