Nearly 300 artificial intelligent (AI) specialists and representatives of over 150 robot enterprises will gather in Beijing from Aug. 23 to 27 for the World Robot Conference 2017.

China has been the world's biggest producer of industrial robots for three years, accounting for 25 percent of global production.

China also remained the largest market for industrial robots in 2016, with sales rising by 26.6 percent year on year to 88,992, according to a report released by China Robot Industry Alliance in July 2017.

As China is in the critical stage of "Made in China 2025," a blueprint to move manufacturing up the value chain, the development of industrial robots has become a major aspect in transforming and upgrading the country’s manufacturing industry.

In China, a growing number of children begin to show strong interest in robots. Meanwhile, robot education in various forms is getting increasingly popular as it can cultivate the creativity and practical ability of children.
