On the first day of 2020, Baidu’s official Weibo published an article entitled “2020, Baidu 20”, which reviewed the development history of the past 20 years.
Baidu pointed out in the article that the earth’s population has increased by 1.5 billion in the past 20 years, and global GDP has doubled by 2.4 times. Humans proved the existence of dark matter, the Curiosity landed on Mars, and the Explorer 1 probe advanced over 10 billion kilometers in space. The number of Chinese Internet users exceeds 800 million, and the number of Internet users worldwide exceeds 4 billion. The Internet has completely and changed our lives.
Baidu has gone through its first 20 years. In the past 20 years, Baidu has brought some changes to the industry. The following figures are officially released:
- Every day, over 200 million people find their own answers through the Baidu APP. The concept of “encyclopedia” is no longer limited to “books”.
- Baidu Maps processes 120 billion location service requests every day, planning routes for people with an average of 2 billion kilometers per day. Fewer people ask for directions, and mobile phone navigation is becoming standard.
- Baidu’s network disk allows the beauty of 700 million people to accompany forever. Floppy disk is history, we learn to store information in the cloud, and everyone has cloud space several orders of magnitude higher than twenty years ago.
Not only that, Baidu’s trial operation of Baidu Robotaxi in Changsha does not require human driving, and cars can transport passengers to their desired destination by themselves. An era of autonomous driving is within reach.
With the help of Baidu’s AI tracing platform, a 4-year-old Guizhou boy completed his 1,500 km return journey from Fujian to Guizhou 20 years later and recovered his biological parents. Artificial intelligence technology helped him find his family.
Baidu emphasizes that the search for truth never stops, and the exploration of the world is endless. Baidu remains enthusiastic about the next 20 years.
