On the afternoon of June 8, 2021, Secretary-General Sun Wansong, on behalf of IUIA, signed a strategic cooperation agreement with Academician Jiang Tianzai, Director of the Brain Network Group Research Center of the Institute of Automation, Chinese Academy of Sciences.
The two sides agreed to establish a close strategic partnership with the Portuguese-speaking and English-speaking countries, according to the Belt and Road Initiative bilateral and multilateral mechanisms, as well as the global innovation resources of IUIA. We will cooperate with international organizations (such as UNESCO, etc.), world-class universities, and famous financial investment companies to jointly build an industry-university-research cooperative experimental area for brain health and smart medical treatment.
In the future, the two sides will carry out close and in-depth cooperation in the fields of international cooperation in brain science, new research and development institutions and accelerated incubation of cross-border industries.
IUIA shareholders represented Mr. Wang Pengwei, Chairman of China Resources Capital; Mr. Zhuang Bowen, Director of Investment Management and Business Development of Macau East West Investment Co., Ltd., attended the signing ceremony
背景介绍 / Background
The Institute of Automation, Chinese Academy of Sciences (IAS), founded in October 1956, is the earliest national automation research institute in China and the first national research institute carrying out brain-like intelligence research.
The Institute of Automation is also one of the supporting units of the "Center for Excellence in Brain Science and Intelligent Technology", the legal person construction unit of the "13th Five-Year Plan" science and education infrastructure project "Brain Cognitive Function Atlas and Brain-like Intelligence Cross Research Platform", and the first "artificial intelligence institute" in China. The Institute works in intelligent mechanism, intelligent chip, intelligent algorithm, intelligent system complete discipline distribution and superiority field. For more than 60 years, the Institute has made important contributions to the national economic construction, social progress, scientific and technological development and national security, such as "two bombs and one satellite".
Brain Network Group Research Center (BNG) is a scientific research department of the Institute of Automation. Members are mainly from the National Key Laboratory of Pattern Recognition and the Beijing Key Laboratory of Brain Network Group. It has accumulated abundant resources in brain science, artificial intelligence, medical image processing and pattern recognition, and is at the international leading level.
现有研究员３人（２人为百人计划引进人才），副研８人，助研４人，工程技术人员12人，博士后４人，研究生及国内外的访问学生70多人，从事理工医多学科交叉的研究，长期致力于脑网络组图谱绘制、脑网络的计算方法与建模等方面的研究，在Nature Medicine, Nature Machine Intelligence等国际顶级刊物发表系列原创研究成果。
At present, there are 3 research fellows (2 of them are the talents introduced by the "Hundred Talents Program"), 8 associate research fellows, 4 research assistants, 12 engineering and technical personnel, 4 postdocs, and more than 70 graduate students and visiting students in China and abroad. Scientists are engaged in interdisciplinary research of science and medicine, and has long been committed to the research of brain network group mapping, brain network calculation methods and modeling, etc, and has published a series of original research results in international top journals such as Nature Medicine and Nature Machine Intelligence.
In terms of hardware platform, the center has a supercomputing cluster, which provides enterprise-class parallel computing and storage device support. In terms of the transformation of scientific research results, the company has incubated Casibrain Technology Co., Ltd., which is engaged in the marketization of brain signal detection equipment. The A round of financing is estimated at 400 million yuan.
