China has accelerated its steps to develop artificial intelligence, as the nation calls for an alliance of leading companies and institutes to promote integration of AI resources.

"The nation is gaining ground in AI, with some advanced technologies already pioneered for the world. There is also an urgent need for companies and institutes to unite to optimize the whole industry chain to create a healthier ecology," said Lin Nianxiu, deputy director of China's National Development and Reform Commission.

He made the comments Friday, at a inauguration ceremony where an industry alliance to promote development of China's AI industry was officially established.

The alliance, backed by several state ministries and commissions including NDRC and the Ministry of Science and Technology, will be led by top-tier institutes such as the China Academy of Information and Communications Technology.

According to the alliance, more than 240 companies and institutes have participated in this platform and agreed to cooperate in this field to make strides forward.
