Tsinghua University and Bosch announced a five-year research collaboration agreement in the field of artificial intelligence (AI) by establishing a Tsinghua-Bosch Joint Research Center for Machine Learning on March 6.


The ceremony was held online via video link from Beijing, Shanghai and Renningen in Germany.


The two parties also signed an agreement on the establishment of the Bosch AI Professor Donation to support professors at Tsinghua’s Department of Computer Science and Technology in AI research.


For their work in the joint research center, Tsinghua and Bosch will leverage their advantages and focus on the basic theories and key technologies of machine learning, striving to make breakthroughs in areas such as intelligent manufacturing.


Qiu Yong, President of Tsinghua University, expressed thanks in his speech for the group’s continued support of Tsinghua.


President Qiu said: “I’m delighted to see that today we will sign two important agreements. This is the first online signing ceremony for a collaboration agreement in the history of Tsinghua, which demonstrates that scientific cooperation and exchange, and international collaboration should not be interrupted under any circumstances.”


He also emphasized that machine-learning is an important factor to promote the development of AI in many fields, such as image, voice and machine translation. Although great progress has been made in machine-learning in recent years, challenges still lay ahead. These challenges require close cooperation between academia and industry.
