Baidu World 2023 Returns to In-Person Format, Unveiling Innovations in AI-Native Applications and Foundation Models

BEIJING, Sept. 26, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Baidu, Inc. (NASDAQ: BIDU and HKEX: 9888), a leading AI company with strong Internet foundation, is set to host its annual flagship technology conference, Baidu World, at Beijing Shougang Park on October 17th. This year, the event marks a thrilling return to an offline format after four years, featuring a wealth of real-world demos and experiences.

Baidu World 2023 will take place in Beijing Shougang Park on October 17th.

After revealing the company’s ambitious plan to reconstruct all its products with AI-native thinking, Baidu World 2023 will revolve around the theme “Prompt the World.” The company will unveil multiple AI-native applications, present the latest advances in foundation models, and offer valuable insights on seizing new opportunities through AI-native thinking in collaboration with enterprises, users, and partners.

The event will begin with a keynote speech from Robin Li, Co-founder, Chairman, and CEO of Baidu, presenting hands-on lessons on creating AI-native applications, reflecting his belief that all future applications will be built upon foundation models to usher in a wave of revolutionary AI-native innovations. Li envisions in the next decade, half of all jobs worldwide will be centered around “prompt engineering”.

Robin Li also believes that AI-native applications should meet three essential criteria, including natural language interaction and full utilization of core AI capabilities like comprehension, generation, reasoning, and memory while possessing no more than two levels of menu structures for user interface. AI-native applications should be able to solve problems that were previously unsolvable or not effectively addressed.

Along with Robin Li, four other senior Baidu executives will take the stage at the main forum to share the latest developments in foundation models, AI-native applications, generative AI ecosystems, and other areas. The event will also feature eight frontier technology sub-forums catering to enterprises, developers, partners, investors, and more.
