Baidu, Inc.

According to the press release, this will involve a bid "to have 5 million intelligent cloud servers by 2030 and train 5 million AI professionals within 5 years, which will help facilitate the widespread application of AI in transportation, city management, finance, energy, health care, and manufacturing to eventually achieve industrial intelligence." Haifeng Wang, Baidu's CTO, explained:

"New infrastructure--which encompasses emerging technologies like AI, cloud computing, 5G, IoT, and blockchain--will be the driver for China's economic development in the coming decades."

"As a world-leading AI platform company, Baidu is well positioned to make large contributions to the development of new infrastructure in China, which will support the implementation of AI applications in different industries."

Sonasoft Corp. (OTC:SSFT) announced that its new AI solution with Delaware Electric Cooperative (DEC) went live on June 29. The solution leverages Sonasoft's AI Bot Engine, NuGene, to predict peak electricity usage, allowing DEC greater efficiency and lower costs. Ankur Garg, Chief AI Officer at Sonasoft, explained:

"The model combines actual electricity load consumption and weather data to accurately forecast peak and non-peak days. This model has been trained and optimized to accurately predict both the type of peak and the precise timing of the peak. Furthermore, it then makes a precise recommendation for when to trigger an LC event and send out a Beat-the-Peak notice. This ability to make intelligent recommendations sets NuGene apart from other AI platforms."
