China's Ministry of Science and Technology has launched a special deployment of "AI for Science", Xinhua reported on Monday.

The deployment closely integrates the key issues of basic disciplines including mathematics, physics, chemistry and astronomy.

It focuses on the scientific research needs in key areas such as drug research and development, gene research, biological breeding, and new material research and development.

"AI for Science" is the product of deep integration of "artificial intelligence technology represented by machine learning" and "scientific research".

The Ministry of Science and Technology will promote the innovation of AI models and algorithms for major scientific problems, and develop a number of dedicated platforms for "AI for Science" for typical scientific research fields.

The ministry will also accelerate the construction of a national open innovation platform for a new generation of AI public computing power, and support the heterogeneous and integrated development of high-performance computing centers and intelligent computing centers.

It will also encourage green energy and low-carbon energy, promote the upgrading of software and hardware computing technologies, and encourage various scientific research entities to open scientific data according to the principle of classification and grading.

In terms of personnel and mechanisms, the ministry supports more scientists and researchers in the fields of mathematics and physics to devote themselves to relevant research, cultivate and gather interdisciplinary R&D teams and promote the establishment of an "AI for Science" innovation consortium.

An international academic exchange platform will also be built to jointly promote the solution of cancer diagnosis and treatment, climate crisis and other common scientific challenges of mankind.

Attention will also be paid to scientific research ethics in the development process of "AI for Science" to promote its healthy and sustainable development.

The Ministry of Science and Technology will give full play to the coordinating role of the new generation of AI Planning and Promotion Office, integrating resources such as projects, platforms and talents, and forming policy synergy for promotion.
