This study created the “Challenges from the Industry X Solutions from Talents” mechanism, which emphasizes learning from doing instead of traditional talent cultivation modes by aligning artificial intelligence (AI) talents with critical problems of enterprises. The problem-solving process begins with industry AI demands. This paper design a platform, AIGO, aiming to cultivate AI talents, and enabling them to solve real-world industrial problems. The platform is composed of competition, learning and community.
