Robin Li, chief executive officer of Baidu Inc, China's largest online search company, has made artificial intelligence and online medical care service the focus of his proposal for the upcoming annual session of the National Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference, which is about to kick off this afternoon.[Special coverage]

Li, who is a political adviser, proposes that the government set up a national "China Brain" project to stimulate the development of artificial intelligence technology.

"Artificial intelligence is the most cutting edge technology in the 21st century. The development of this technology is expected to significantly improve and expand the capability of humankind. It will have profound influence in terms of boosting innovation and the competitiveness of a nation," Li said in a statement.

Li also proposes to open registration resources at hospitals to commercial organizations and enable more companies to offer services to help people make appointments online at hospitals.

"Making appointments online is important to increase the efficiency of medical organizations," he said. However, many cities don't allow commercial organizations to launch such online services.

Some of the online registration platforms launched by local governments are very difficult to use. It is important to involve companies to improve the informatization.
