The application of smart transportation technologies will significantly bring down the current level of carbon emissions and alleviate traffic problems, and internet companies in China need to do more in technological innovation to sharpen their competitiveness, a political adviser said.

Robin Li, co-founder and CEO of Chinese tech giant Baidu, said on the sidelines of the ongoing CPPCC session on Monday that smart transportation technologies will contribute significantly to reducing carbon emissions, as it will increase efficiency in road transportation, adding that transportation is currently a sector that generates a big proportion of carbon emissions.

He said the ongoing trend of artificial intelligence has been noticed around the globe. And in this area, China and the United States have their own advantages. He said the US is strong in basic research of AI technologies, and China has performed better in scenario applications, and the two countries need to better cooperate and learn from each other.
