THE FUTURE IS HERE

China building Robot Training Center for LLM AI, advanced robotics to replace US, European jobs

A new training center for robots has opened in Shanghai, in one of the four high-tech zones in the city that is focused on robotics.

The robots will be trained in general-purpose functions, which are more advanced than specific functions. China has claimed strong advances in Large Language Model AI’s, which will be incorporated into the training program for the robotics researchers.

This development makes for a solid case study of China’s Industrial Clustering policies, which are a key feature of their economic and urban planning.
