Next Generation of the Internet
Recent remarks about the future of the Internet and its tendencies were made at the Boao Forum for Asia by Dowson Tong, Senior Executive Vice President and CEO of Tencent Cloud and Tencent’s Smart Industries Group. The future generation of the Internet will be shaped by three key trends, according to Tong: AI-based, immersive, and industry integration.
The connection between supply and demand will change as a result of artificial intelligence (AI), he noted, which will be the primary force behind the internet. Machines will deliver information and even services.
Tong thinks that the advancement of cloud computing will be accelerated by artificial intelligence, which will also considerably increase work productivity. Large-scale AI models, he pointed out, need powerful computers and fast connections. Therefore, “plug-and-play” cloud technology is needed for the use of artificial intelligence. As a result, the growth potential and development model of the cloud will be significantly impacted by the integration of AI with cloud.
Artificial intelligence as the core driver for the next generation of the Internet
“AIGC will improve productivity and transform the Internet supply-demand relationship. In the past, people were the major providers of Internet content and services, but machines may become providers in the future,” Tong said in his speech.
In addition to being AI-driven, Tong also said that the Immersive convergence, introduced by Tencent in 2022, is another trend of the future of the Internet. Internet information has evolved from graphics and text to a three-dimensional representation of the real world, enabling two-way interactions and operations between the virtual and real worlds.
For example, Tencent Cloud and Sany Group jointly launched an unmanned mining truck, allowing truckers to sit in a comfortable office and drive unmanned mining trucks through the screen. This was made possible by the integration of Tencent Cloud’s real-time audio and video technology and 5G network, which effectively copes with weak network conditions and reduces video transmission delays from seconds to less than 100 milliseconds. This ensures smooth, stable and reliable remote control.
The next generation Internet is becoming more and more deeply integrated into industries. Companies across the value chain, from design and manufacturing to marketing, are increasingly using the Internet to improve production and efficiency.
AI-accelerated cloud development
Tong accepts that man-made intelligence innovation will incredibly further develop creation productivity.
One model is the programmed 3D virtual scene age arrangement created by Tencent man-made intelligence Lab. Introduced at the Game Designers Meeting in San Francisco last month, the arrangement utilizes AIGC innovation to make practical and different virtual city scenes in an extremely brief timeframe without any preparation. The “city” covers 25 square kilometers where 4,000 structures are found and 130 kilometers of streets run. Building such a huge city used to take a few specialists a couple of years, however presently it just requires half a month with the assistance of man-made reasoning.
Besides, Tong called attention to that the advancement of man-made intelligence is advantageous for cloud improvement.
Cloud foundation can give high processing power, which is fundamental for computer-based intelligence model preparation. Accordingly, simulated intelligence innovation will speed up the utilization and fame of the cloud.
The production efficiency of the new generation Internet may be significantly increased, making it quickly suitable to numerous businesses and industries. The cloud’s penetration will rise as a result of AI technology’s need for “plug-and-play” compatibility with its carrier. More industries will go to the cloud in the future, and more people will use it.
Natural language processing, computer vision, multimodality, and other industry and domain models are all included in Tencent’s Hunyuan AI big model. Additionally, it increased the efficacy of advertisement recommendations in Tencent’s goods and services.
Production will be quicker and more productive thanks to the cloud and AI integration. We may anticipate significant changes in the internet’s future during the next few years.
