HONG KONG – CITIC Telecom International CPC Limited (CITIC Telecom CPC), a wholly-owned subsidiary of CITIC Telecom International Holdings Limited, is honored to announce that its data science and innovation team has won the championship of “Material Demand Forecast” award in the 5th China Industrial Internet Data Innovation and Application Contest. The contest was jointly organized by The China Academy of Information and Communications Technology (CAICT) and People’s Government of Baoan District, and was strongly supported by Alliance of Industrial Internet and Shenzhen Industrial and Information Technology Bureau.

2021 was a bountiful year for CITIC Telecom CPC where its data science and innovation team has achieved new heights. CITIC Telecom CPC attained the highest honor and won the championship in the “Classification of Malware Families based on Artificial Intelligence” in the CCF Big Data & Computing Intelligence Contest (CCF BDCI) organized by the China Computer Federation. The latest award is the championship in the 5th China Industrial Internet Data Innovation and Application Contest. Lasted nearly 3 months, the contest attracted more than 6000 people from over 2200 teams to participate. The data science and innovation team of CITIC Telecom CPC entered the competition in the “Smart Material Demand Forecast in Discrete Manufacturing Industry” category. The team used different attribute correlation analysis and integrated various algorithms to generate the best predictive value of product material demand and finally won the championship.

With the theme “Digitization drives intelligence and provides insight into industrial future”, the contest provides real industrial production and operational data according to the needs of real manufacturing enterprises. Based on historical data of raw material demands and inventory level, every team has to predict the demand of each raw material in every factory and provide periodic demand forecast results for the coming 3 months in order to advise the factory in terms of stocking and production. CITIC Telecom CPC’s data science team collected the data and conducted materials, scenarios and relevant attribute correlation analysis based on time series, and integrated various algorithms like mathematical algorithms to do intelligence analysis, thereby generating the best predictive value and finally won the contest.

“Data science has been widely utilized in various industries. Its strong intelligent power and rapid development have reshaped traditional enterprises for digital transformation. We are honored to receive this award in recognition of our data experts and professional team’s comprehensive capabilities in industrial internet demand scenarios, algorithms modeling expertise and AI analysis.
