Jack Ma: The next three decades belong to people who can “make good use of internet technology”.
马云:未来三十年属于“用好互联网技术”的人。

Jack Ma, chairman of Alibaba Group Holding Ltd, said that the next three decades will not only be dominated by internet companies, but also by enterprises, countries and young people who can “make good use of internet technology.”
阿里巴巴集团控股有限公司主席马云认为,未来三十年不光掌握在互联网公司手中,也属于能够“用好互联网技术”的企业、国家和年轻人。

In order to better use web technology, Alibaba is making constant innovations. During the conference, Alibaba’s financial arm, Ant Financial, demonstrated its “VR Pay” and “Smile to Pay” technologies. *Transactions can be completed by users of the Alipay app by just touching the screen, gazing, nodding or giving a voice confirmation while wearing VR glasses, according to China International Radio.
为了更好地应用互联网技术,阿里巴巴也在不断创新。在大会期间,阿里巴巴的金融支柱蚂蚁金服展示了它的“VR支付”和“扫脸支付”技术。据中国国际广播电台报道,在戴上VR眼镜后,支付宝用户只需通过触控、凝视、点头或语音确认等方式,便可完成支付。

As for “Smile to Pay”, registered users can complete transactions by simply having their face scanned by a computer screen at the *cashier’s desk, with no inputting a PIN or opening an app required.
而“扫脸支付”则是指,注册用户只需在收银台用电脑屏幕扫描面部,便可完成支付,无需输入密码或打开应用。

Robin Li: The era of mobile internet has ended and AI is the new opportunity.
李彦宏:移动互联网时代已经结束,人工智能才是新机遇。

Robin Li, chairman and CEO of Baidu, said it is no longer possible for a *unicorn to appear in the mobile internet market.
百度董事长兼首席执行官李彦宏表示,在移动互联网市场上,已经没有机会出现独角兽。

“The era of AI will bring great changes, which means we need to re-imagine everything, every industry and every market,” he said.
“人工智能的时代将会带来许多重大改变,我们需要重新想象每一件事情、每一个行业、每一个市场,”他说道。

Based on AI technology, the internet giant’s latest development is Baidu Brain, an artificial intelligence-enabled project that seeks to vastly improve computing tasks by mimicking the way the human brain operates. Baidu is also developing driverless cars, which can analyze traffic flow and control their *maneuvers automatically, Cao Haitao of Baidu’s artificial intelligence unit told Xinhua.
基于人工智能技术,这家科技巨头最新开发出了百度大脑。这是一个应用了人工智能技术的项目,希望能够通过模拟人脑的运作方式,极大地改善运算任务。百度人工智能部的曹海涛(音译)在接受新华社采访时称,百度也正在开发能够分析交通流量、自动控制驱动的无人驾驶车。

Pony Ma: Internet companies should further cultivate the Chinese market.

Tencent also revealed that it’s developing new products, including FACE-IT, a facial-recognition program that the company showed off during the conference. It can accurately recognize people’s facial expressions even if they are moving, reported Sohu, and may even be used in “smart cities” in the future.
腾讯也展示了一系列正在开发的新产品。在本次大会上,该公司展示了一项名为FACE-IT面部识别技术。据搜狐网报道,该技术甚至能在人们移动过程中准确识别面部表情,将来或许还能应用到 “智能城市“中去。
