JINAN, July 9 (Xinhua) -- An international joint center for artificial intelligence (AI) research has been established by China's Shandong University and Singapore's Nanyang Technological University (NTU).
The research institute was inaugurated earlier this month in Jinan, capital of east China's Shandong Province.
Fan Liming, president of Shandong University, said the research institute would become a platform for scientific research, talent training and great successes through its global university resources and scholars.

NTU has cooperated with Shandong University for 15 years. It is known for its strong scientific research and has made great achievements in AI in recent years.
"The establishment of the joint research center has overcome geographical barriers, and it will strengthen cooperation and academic exchanges between the two universities," said Lam Khin Yong, vice president of NTU.
