On the morning of October 11, at the opening ceremony of the Hangzhou Yunxi Conference in Alibaba 2017, Zhang Jianfeng, Chief Technology Officer of Alibaba Group, announced the establishment of a "Dharma House" ,which will set up laboratories around the world and bring in more university professors to participate. In the next three years, 100 billion yuan will be invested in basic scientific research and development. It is reported that the first published research fields of the "Dharma House" include: Quantum Computing, Machine Learning, Basic Algorithms, Cybersecurity, Visual Computing, Natural Language Processing, Natural Human-Computer Interaction, Chip Technology, Sensor Technology, Embedded Systems, etc. , covering a wide range of industries including machine intelligence, wisdom Internet and financial technology. The news, once being released, showed a high degree of activity, and the number of tyrants screen is a wave after wave. It is Ali's own science and technology conference, but a small number of oil professionals have seen the influence of "intelligent investment" on the oil industry.
At the same time last year, that is, October 11, 2016, in the same place, Ma Yun, chairman of Alibaba's board of directors, proposed the "Five New Strategies" at the Yunqi Conference. At that time, the "five new strategies" were called by some media as "a major event that will change China's future two decades." many people may have heard of it. The "five new strategies" proposed by Mayun includes new retail, new finance, new manufacturing, new technologies and new energy sources. At this point, you can not help but find out that these five aspects are all closely linked to the oil industry when we look back at the "five new strategies" proposed by Ma. After releasing the "Five New Strategies" for the coming year, Alibaba conducted a series of layouts around "new energy."
It is noted here that the intelligent gas station is built by Ali itself. In other words, it has nothing to do with other oil companies. This shows that Ali's entering the oil industry has already begun, which will have a great impact on the whole oil industry.
