After I went back to China together with my team, I found that the entity manufacturing and hi-tech are totally two different things and that it’s difficult to find where to use our AI technology in the developing manufacturing sector. Fortunately, this program has saved us from the long uncertain process of seeking industry, enterprises and bosses and helped us directly connect with scenes and R&D technology, so the greatest advantage of our team can be utilized.
