Beijing will build a $2 billion AI development location as China continues to push to become the global leader in AI technology by 2025. The park will be able to accommodate up to 400 enterprises and will output an estimated $7 billion yearly. The park development will be overseen by the Zhongguancun Development Group and will seek to partner with foreign education systems to set up what has been called a "nation-level" artificial intelligence lab.
