On September 28, the launching ceremony and press conference of the first "Robot Valley Cup" China City Chess League was held in Beijing Tsinghua Science and Technology Park. The title sponsor of the event-Robot Valley (Beijing) Investment Co., Ltd. young post-95 head Chen Wen said at the meeting: "The company will invest more funds to support the development of chess and other intellectual sports."
Chen Wen was born in March 1995. After returning from studying in a prestigious American school, he founded Robot Valley (Beijing) Investment Co., Ltd., dedicated to the development of high-end technology fields such as machine learning, artificial intelligence, and cloud computing. At the meeting, Chen Wen's figure was very conspicuous among the experts and seniors. The young face had very firm eyes and spoke clearly. He is familiar with the relationship between chess and artificial intelligence. Chen Wen said: "The topic of artificial intelligence alphago and Go has been very heated in the past two years, but chess and machine learning have set off a boom more than 20 years ago. There is a world chess king card. Sparov and Deep Blue play games. After years of updating, artificial intelligence and chess interact and develop together."
In Chen Wen's view, the combination of technology investment companies and chess is very necessary. "Chess can exercise left and right brains, improve creativity, and promote memory. These are also necessary abilities for engaging in scientific research and development. Being able to integrate with city leagues is our opportunity and an honor. It will help build our corporate brand and improve our Popularity is very good," Chen Wen said.
When he was a student, Chen Wen was very keen on sports, good at playing basketball, and also very interested in chess. He is very concerned about the cause of chess and also has ambitions. He said: "At present, most of the major chess tournaments are still held in Russia, Europe and the United States. This intervention and sponsorship of the Chinese City Chess League is a charity of Robot Valley. , Give back to the society, and help sports. But this is only the beginning. In the future, the company will invest more funds to support the development of intellectual sports such as chess."
China City National Elephant Tournament is sponsored by China City and Small Town Reform and Development Center and undertaken by Beijing Huayuan Sports Development Co., Ltd. and Qilu Chess Sports Development Co., Ltd. Attracted 3 world chess queens, 11 world champions, and 30 special masters to participate, covering almost all first-line chess players in China. The league introduces the old and the new, and the city is the unit of the team. There are seed teams composed of professional masters such as special masters to participate, and young chess players and amateur players are selected to participate in the competition through the online sea selection, so that ordinary fans have the opportunity to directly compete with professional masters. Create a team of urban heroes that belong to the whole people.
The novel competition system has attracted great attention from all walks of life as soon as it was launched. Presumably, after the start of the league, the name of Robot Valley will no longer be unfamiliar. I hope that the demonstration of this competition can attract more young people like Chen Wen and young companies like Robot Valley to participate in the chess project and realize mutual benefit and win-win results for everyone.
