Data show that China's AI+medical market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 51.9% from 2020 to 2022, and the AI+medical market size is expected to exceed $7 billion in 2022.

The application of AI technology in the medical sector is driving the transformation and development of China's medical technology and medical equipment market. In recent years, China's AI+aided screening and diagnosis, AI+brain science and other medical fields are staging a "bend and overtake".

AI healthcare unlocks industry potential

The rise of AI technology has set off a wave of development in the medical and health care track. According to data, AI + medical has accounted for 18.9% of the AI market in 2020, and according to IDC statistics, the AI application market will be worth $127 billion by 2025, of which AI applications in the medical industry will account for one-fifth of the market size.

In 2018, the State Council issued the Opinions on Promoting the Development of "Internet + Medical Health" to encourage superior medical institutions within medical associations to promote "Internet + AI" application services with the help of artificial intelligence and other technical means. 2020, China The Internet Office and other five departments released the "National New Generation of Artificial Intelligence Standard System Construction Guide" to establish the AI standard system in the medical field in 2023. With the continued policy dividend, the AI+medical industry has seen rapid development.

Up to now, AI+medicine in China is mainly applied in five major fields, such as medical imaging, auxiliary medicine, drug research and development, health management, and disease prediction. With the policy support and the maturity of AI technology, the application scenarios of AI+medicine are being extended. In terms of development trend, the health management process of users will become more and more intelligent, and precision medicine will become more and more personalized and individualized.

According to the information from the data research institute of SkyEye, in the field of AI+public health, AI will improve the decision-making ability and response speed in response to emergencies and reduce the cost of prevention and control of spreading viruses. In the field of AI+health management, artificial intelligence will act as a "digital doctor" to provide personalized care to patients, record and analyze users' personal data to give dynamic assessment of physical status, and use artificial intelligence technology to provide patients with The AI technology will be used to provide patients with services such as online consultation and chronic disease management.

Brain-computer interface becomes a pioneering field for AI+brain science research

Health is an eternal topic for human beings. In the context of the increasing contradiction between an aging population and limited medical resources, the industrial integration of AI+medicine, which pushes traditional medicine to smart medicine, has further released the industrial potential, and more and more companies are flocking to the AI+medicine track.

Smart wearable devices, as the main product form of AI health management, can help individuals or enterprises to manage their health in a targeted manner, and turn passive disease treatment into active health monitoring through long time real-time monitoring and multi-dimensional data management and analysis. SkyEye data shows that there are more than 15,000 wearable device related enterprises in China, of which 368 are high-tech enterprises, accounting for 2.4%.

As a modern high-tech enterprise, Shandong Haitian Intelligent Engineering Co., Ltd. has undertaken 14 national and provincial scientific research projects and led 2 national projects. It has taken the lead in formulating 15 national, industry, local and group standards. It has been awarded the national "High-tech Enterprise", "Manufacturing Single Champion Cultivation Enterprise", "Demonstration Enterprise of Deep Integration of Artificial Intelligence and Real Economy", "Pilot Demonstration of Integration of Manufacturing and Internet Development", and "Pilot Demonstration of Integration of Manufacturing and Internet Development". More than 60 qualifications and honors at the provincial level and above, such as "Pilot Demonstration Enterprise of Manufacturing and Internet Integration Development".

In the field of AI+medicine, Shandong Haitian Intelligent Engineering Co., Ltd. has developed a number of intelligent products such as brain-computer interface rehabilitation training system, hand function rehabilitation system, brain-controlled upper limb and lower limb rehabilitation robot, and pro-stem cell stroke therapy instrument. Among them, the hand function rehabilitation training system is a medical rehabilitation device with innovative design for patients with hand function disorder to restore limb function. After the patient wears the DAI, the rehabilitation device collects EEG signals through the controller and accurately obtains the signal of the patient's intentional movement, which drives the robot to realize the rehabilitation training of the four fingers, thumb, wrist part or the whole. Also as a "wearable robot", the lower limb exoskeleton robot is mainly used for gait training to assist patients with abnormal gait due to brain injury, spinal injury, neurological injury, muscle injury and orthopedic diseases.

In November 2020, the "Proposal of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China on Formulating the 14th Five-Year Plan for National Economic and Social Development and the Visionary Goals for 2035" pointed out that a number of major national science and technology projects with foresight and strategy should be implemented targeting frontier areas such as brain science. The inclusion of brain science research at the national strategic level means that it has huge market potential.

As an early enterprise engaged in brain-computer interface technology research in China, Shandong Haitian Intelligent Engineering Co., Ltd. has mature research results in the field of AI + brain science. The brain-machine interface rehabilitation system developed by the company adopts virtual reality animation scenes to induce stroke patients or patients with neurological injury to perform repetitive motor imagery to help patients complete rehabilitation actions, artificially build an extracorporeal neural pathway to replace the damaged central nervous system, realize the transformation from passive rehabilitation to active rehabilitation, and promote the remodeling of damaged neural functions. The brain-computer interface rehabilitation system, as the first brain-computer interaction robot product to pass the CFDA certification and be granted official registration approval, fills the international gap.

In the face of brain science, the "secret frontier of humanity", many browsers have sailed their own ark. In the future, with the outstanding algorithm and big data analysis of AI+medicine, relevant exploring enterprises will eventually realize the implementation of AI+brain science in various core application scenarios and finally improve the overall medical level.
