On October 11th, the two-day 2018 Xiaomanyao Technology Conference - Global Mobile Developers Conference and Artificial Intelligence Summit was held in Guangzhou. The big coffee from the global science and technology, capital and other fields gathered in Guangzhou. In line with the trend of artificial intelligence development, the conference invited global artificial intelligence talents to participate, accelerating the rapid development of the artificial intelligence industry in Guangdong, Hong Kong and Macao, and gathering the wisdom of the world and exploring the Chinese path. Housheng Investment was invited to attend the forum. Founding Partner and President Mr. Yan Ling was invited as the guest speaker to discuss the “Difficulties and Paths of Chinese Semiconductors” with the semiconductor industry.
The Xiaomanyao Technology Conference was upgraded from the AndroidWorld Global Developers Conference. It has been successfully held for six times in 2018 and has developed into a world-renowned professional brand event, which is regarded as the vane of the global artificial intelligence field.

On the morning of the 11th, the main forum of the conference, Xiong Xiaoge, Chairman of IDG Capital Global, Yan Shuicheng, Vice President of 360 Group, Dean of 360 Artificial Intelligence Research Institute, Zhou Wei, Partner of Sequoia Capital China Fund, and Yu Ling, Investment Partner and President of Housheng. Robert G. Hagstrom, President and General Manager of Legg Mason, former Lin Yuanqing, Dean of Baidu Research Institute, Zhou Bowen, Vice President of JI Platform and Research Department of Jingdong Group, Global Vice President and Investment Department of Qualcomm Group Manager Shen Jin, Hu Shifeng, member of the Jinshi Investment Investment Committee, and Allie Miller, chief product manager of IBM Watson, gave a wonderful speech on the status and trends of the artificial intelligence industry, opportunities and challenges, and shared their industrialization of artificial intelligence. Deep observation and insights, the exchange of ideas in different countries and different fields collided with the spark of wisdom, and presented a high-quality feast of ideas to the audience.
Founding Partner and President of Housheng Investment Investment, Ling Ling, Global Vice President of Qualcomm Group, Mr. Shen Jin, General Manager of Qualcomm Investment Department, Mr. Zhou Wei, Partner of Sequoia Capital China Fund, Hu Bofeng, Member of Jinshi Investment Investment Committee, initiated the venture Partner Du Feng, on the argument of “Building · What We Have Made vs. What We Should Do”, conducted a high-level discussion on the development of the artificial intelligence industry.
In the break, China’s “core” – semiconductor industry summit, Mr. Yan Ling, the founding partner and president of Housheng’s investment investment, delivered a keynote speech “Building Industrial Capital, Intelligent Manufacturing and Semiconductor Chip Industry Chain”.
Tom Luan said that semiconductor chip short board has become one of the challenges of the development of China's artificial intelligence industry. With the popularity of the Internet, social media, mobile devices, and the rapid development of 5G and the Internet of Things, the demand for memory chips has increased, and the high-speed iteration of artificial intelligence chip technology has spawned various AI-specific chips.
Currently in the field of integrated circuits, the United States has semiconductor giants such as Intel, Qualcomm, Texas Instruments, Broadcom, Nvidia, and Micron. According to public data in 2017, semiconductor companies headquartered in the United States accounted for 46% of global sales.
China's representative semiconductor companies are catching up. Founded in 2000, SMIC is currently close to R&D. The goal of mass production in 2019 seems to be not far away. Once the products currently manufactured by overseas companies are expected to return to domestic OEMs. Huawei HiSilicon, the seventh largest chip design company in the world with sales of 4.715 billion US dollars in 2017, with a growth rate of 21%; HiSilicon's Kirin 980 chip is the world's first 7-nanometer artificial smart phone chip, in terms of AI computing power. Leading.
In the field of artificial intelligence chips, there have been many chip companies in Cambrian, Shenjian Technology and Horizon. For example, in the Cambrian in June this year, hundreds of millions of dollars of B-round financing were completed, and the post-investment valuation was 2.5 billion US dollars. Alibaba established Pingtou Ge Semiconductor Co., Ltd., and its four main directions include AI chips, embedded chips, quantum computing chips and the Internet of Things. chip.
Domestic capital has rapidly entered the semiconductor field, and more than a dozen provinces and cities including Beijing, Shanghai, and Guangdong have set up local government funds to support the development of the semiconductor industry, inciting local IC industry investment funds to exceed 500 billion yuan. Tom Luan predicted that “taking into account the government funds for industrial capital and capital, the investment in the IC industry in the next decade is expected to reach the trillion level”.
Breaking the news · China "core" round table dialogue
In the round-table dialogue, the guests pointed out that China is now the best time to develop the semiconductor industry. China is in a stage of rapid development, and it has a good time and a good place. With the experience of other countries, we can have a latecomer advantage. Coupled with the attention of the country and the attention of the whole people, it will enter a track of rapid development.
