The Terminus Group, a leader in artificial intelligence and robotics in China, is building its first global AI CITY in the municipality of Chongqing, in southwest China.
Technologically, AI CITY was created during a trend of integrating CT into everyday life, in which AI, 5G, IoT and big data are advancing rapidly. As for the urban experience, AI can offer personalized services to individuals and develop its functionalities remotely. AI CITY also bridges the gap between data silos for individual scenarios and enables data operability between scenarios, including software and hardware, in addition to helping the company achieve carbon neutrality.
The futuristic development project is located near the Fengming River in the Financial Street area of Western (Chongqing) Science City, where smart industry has become one of the main economic pillars in recent years. The Financial Street Area is the center of innovation connecting smart industries and financial firms. It serves as a basic function support and startup demonstration model of Chongqing High-Tech Zone. Relying on finance, it aims to animate the agglomeration of high-end service industries by vigorously developing “Finance Plus” companies.
The hub accelerates the transformation of business models and desktop scenario services, strengthens the financial role of the Cité des sciences in the region and today becomes the epicenter of innovation and venture capital companies, as well as financial institutions supported by science and technology.
In 2020, Terminus Group launched the first program as part of its AI CITY deployment, AI PARK, in Chongqing. When the Terminus Group drew up the plan for AI CITY’s first AI PARK project in Chongqing during the pre-construction phase, it used the smart city planning engine and designed the park as a smart and sustainable area where nature and technology could coexist harmoniously.
Terminus Group uses TACOS (Terminus AI CITY Operating System) as a digital base to manage the city’s software, hardware and ecosystem, and effectively bridge the missing link between the various smart solutions. This will avoid the lack of synergy between the services offered and will optimize the redundant construction process, which is often too expensive. This is not only a management style that leverages open platform operations to lower the cost of smart city construction, but also a trend that allows social consensus to drive smart city infrastructure. futuristic.
TACOS (Terminus AI CITY Operation System), a city-level operating system developed by the company to link hardware and services to clouds and ensure digital synchronization of smart applications in different urban scenarios, including smart vehicles, smart education and smart community.
Terminus Group AI PARK will serve as the first phase “pilot installation” for the entire AI CITY “Could Valley” development project based in Chongqing. The park is equipped with various ICT functionalities, 360-degree robotic services, as well as management centers piloted by AIoT. Visitors can experience various smart solutions including smart communities, smart fire protection, smart security services, smart finance and smart e-commerce deployed on digital layers running on the AI PARK digital platform to support its operations functional.
From the AI PARK in Chongqing to the World Intelligence Congress (WIC) in Tianjin, a growing number of mega-cities are joining forces with the Terminus Group to stimulate the development of AI CITIES, such as Wuhan, Deyang-Chengdu and Hangzhou etc. time, the company is going straight to Expo 2020 Dubai – The Terminus Group remains an advocate for the digitization of city management, which has launched 10,000 smart scenario solutions in cities around the world and has accumulated a wealth of experience in industry.
Once the AI CITY is completed, it will not only improve urban life and help cities become more sustainable, but also build a smart industrial platform for the city, as well as promote the transformation and modernization of the city. urban economy.
In addition, it will provide smart scenarios for the landing and application of many new technologies and products in the field of urban science and technology. With its landing overseas, it will also provide a platform for further communication between China and other advanced technology partners around the world in related fields.
