The 71-year-old Lippi had stepped down in January, after the country’s quarterfinal

ed China’s digital economy had reached more than 27 trillion yuan ($4 trillio

n) in 2017, a year-on-year rise of 20.3 percent, accounting for nearly 33 percent of GDP.

Lu said the growth rate of the number of people working as new media operators in 2017 was mo

re than 10 times that of 2013. The growth comes as more consumers turn from mass media to new me

dia, which provides more information, is faster, has a more diversified presentation and cheaper cost.

Algorithm engineers, in particular, grew at exponential rates. More than fi

ve times as many people worked as algorithm engineers in 2017 than 2013, he said.

“Algorithm is the foundation for artificial intelligence. AI has started to integrate with other industr

ies and already had been successfully implemented in AI plus marketing, finance and assisted medical dia

gnosis. AI engineers will have more value as AI becomes more closely tied with more businesses,” Lu said.
