Lenovo Launches China Industrial Big Data Application Alliance To Boost Smart Manufacturing
Lenovo Group Ltd. has teamed up with China Electronics Standardization Institution to launch an Industrial Big Data Application Alliance to support the utilization of industrial big data.
Under the alliance announced Friday in Beijing, over 80 companies from the fields of artificial intelligence, big data, Internet of Things, cloud computing, augmented reality, virtual reality and robotics have joined the alliance, including Tencent Cloud, TCL Corp and Haier Group Corp.
The alliance will aim to standardize industrial big data, push digital data modelling of the industrial chain, develop professional algorithm to meet corporate demand for high accuracy data analysis, as well as focus on the visualization of data.
Lenovo’s CEO, Yang Yuanqing, said that the establishment of the alliance will help upgrade and transform the manufacturing sector.
At the same time, Lenovo also launched its Industrial Internet Platform, aiming to support over 100,000 companies in the next five years.
Industrial big data is considered the foundation of smart manufacturing, and the newly established alliance is in line with the Chinese government’s policy to develop the smart manufacturing sector. In 2015, the state council issued the China Smart Manufacturing 2025 plan, with an emphasis on the application of smart manufacturing, especially for smart devices and smart products. Later in the same year, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology and Standardization Administration issued a guideline saying the smart manufacturing standardization system should be completed in five years.
