According to the agreement, a Baidu innovation center will be built to make Shanghai a major AI development center. Baidu will also help Shanghai in building smart city.

Shanghai has talent from home and abroad and is open to the world, which provides a conducive environment for the company's future development, said Robin Li, chairman and CEO of Baidu.
