The output of the country's AI industry exceeded 70 billion yuan in 2017. The figure is expected to increase to more than 160 billion yuan by 2020, according to a document released at the International Conference on Robot and Intelligent Manufacturing, which kicked off in Wujiang District in Suzhou, east China's Jiangsu Province, on Thursday.
