Regarding the involvement of the Chinese military, Li said, "We hope our country's military can allocate some funds to these vital projects and help promote the innovative capability of our nation."

Market mechanisms should be introduced to promote the conversion and sharing of quality AI research, to improve innovation in traditional and military industries, and to encourage the transformation of traditional fields to intelligent service sectors, it was added.

"Through this platform that our country has created, we will achieve more innovation with lower costs," Li stressed.
