 this endeavor. Youku started its digital restoration project in 2017, with many results. E

arlier this year, iQiyi also launched its own restoration project featuring the use of ZoomAI, a video-en上海会所

hancing solution devised by the company, to restore and remaster 50 select TV dramas.

上海会所Before the adoption of new technologies, restoration of the old works, most often in lower resolution, was done manually and it

took a day to restore a 40-minute-long episode. Now, iQiyi’s ZoomAI software, comprising algorithm modules suc

h as color enhancement, sharpening, and white balance, can restore a high resolution feature film in just one hour.上海会所

The restoration process starts with scanning the film negatives or prints into a digital pict

上海会所品茶微信ure and raw sound format. Then each frame of the scanned material undergoes an automated digital res

oration process that involves the correction of color, brightness, and contrast. The process also involves the dig

ital removal of scratches and unnecessary noises, restoration and remastering of sound, said Liu Junhui, a senior director from iQiyi.上海会所

Even with the aid of AI technologies, digital restoration of old productions is no mean fea

上海会所品茶微信t, as increasing the image resolution is one thing, but restoring its original texture is quite another, which requ

ires technologies, as well as a craftsmanship spirit. For instance, 30-plus members of the Youku digital res

toration team worked for as long as a month to fully restore the 1983 megahit, The Bund.

“Our team has made various attempts to enhance audiences’ viewing experien上海会所

ce. If only the definition is increased through transcoding, audiences may feel that the im

ages have been doctored through filters. So we went to great lengths to restore the texture that is unique to the pe

riod when the classical series was shot,” said Guo Linna, a senior visual optimization engineer from Youku. 上海会所品茶微信

Though Youku’s digital restoration team is made up of no more than 40 members who

do not work full time, every week it can restore 100-plus episodes of old TV dramas.

Speaking of her original motivation, Guo said that she chose to restore those old TV series because on the one hand, she wa

上海会所品茶微信nted the post-80s generation to have better access to recalling childhood memories, and on the other hand, she wan

ted the younger generation to gain new experience through watching these classic works.

Prudent monetary polic上海千花网e, sle’s Bank of Chi

China will maintain a prudent monetary policy in the year’s second half, with potential policy adjustments depending mainly on

the domestic economic situation and price levels, a senior central bank official said on Friday.上海千花网女神会所

Having noticed the recent monetary easing in some foreign central banks and the United States Fe

上海千花网女神会所deral Reserve’s strong message that it will make a cut later in the policy rate, the Chinese centra

l bank has decided not to change its monetary policy stance, while continually reducing the actual financing costs o

f enterprises, said Sun Guofeng, head of the monetary policy department of the People’s Bank of China, the central bank.上海千花网

“In the second half, we will maintain the liquidity at a reasonably ample level through leveraging

diversified tools and strengthening macroeconomic policy coordination,” said Sun, adding that mo

derate money supply growth can support the country’s high-quality economic growth.上海千花网

Sun made the remark after the central bank released major financial da

ta on Friday. The broad money supply, or M2, increased by 8.5 percent by the end of June

上海千花网女神会所from a year earlier. The growth rate had remained unchanged for three consecutive months starting in April.

Chinese banks issued yuan-denominated loans of 9.67 trillion yuan ($1.41 trillion) in the first six month

s, and 1.66 trillion yuan was newly extended in June, up from 1.18 trillion yuan in May, the PBOC said.上海千花网

Total social financing, a broad measure of credit and liquidity in the economy, increased by 13.23 trillion yuan in the firs

上海千花网女神会所t half, compared with an increase of 10.05 trillion yuan in the same period last year, officials said.

“Rapid growth of total social financing proved that the financial se

ctor is enhancing support for the real economy,” said Ruan Jianhong, head of the central ba上海千花网

nk’s Statistics and Analysis Department, at a Friday news conference.

上海千花网女神会所The RMB, compared with some other major currencies, has performe

d well in the first half, and its current exchange rate is basically in line with the economic fou

ndation, as the International Monetary Fund determined recently, according to Sun.上海千花网女神会所

“In the future, the market will play a decisive role in determining the RMB exchange rate, and we will take macro-pruden

t measures when it is necessary to maintain the exchange rate at a stable and reasonable equilibrium,” Sun added.

Exploring challenges 上海千花坊ities in healthcare

To explore further the challenges and huge opportunities in this area, the Novartis Fou

ndation and Microsoft are co-chairing a new Broadband Commission working group that will m上海千花坊

ake recommendations regarding how AI can safely improve health and strengthen healthcare systems. In a sim

上海千花坊品茶微信ilar vein, health-advocacy organization PATH is working with the Tanzanian government to test machine-lea

rning applications that promise to predict demand for vaccines more accurately and optimize their delivery.上海千花坊

Digital health tools that inform and empower patients can also play a crucial role in p

reventing disease. Simple, existing, cost-effective technology, such as mobile phones and broadband, can ma上海千花坊品茶微信

ke a huge difference in raising awareness of the causes and early symptoms of diseases. PATH and the No

上海千花坊vartis Foundation, for example, are collaborating on the Communities for Healthy Hearts program in Vietnam, w

hich uses digital technology to improve and accelerate control of hypertension-the leading cause of heart disease.

Finally, digital technology can help to deliver healthcare to people in remote or und上海千花坊品茶微信

erserved areas, thereby tackling one of the greatest obstacles to reducing disease. Using

mobile phones, WhatsApp, and text messages can improve the quality and accessibility of care for millions of people. In this re上海千花坊品茶微信

gard, the Novartis Foundation and PATH have introduced telemedicine in Ghana, which connects rural inhabitants wi

th trained healthcare professionals, and digital dashboards that enable better, faster malaria care.上海千花坊品茶微信

Digital data must be made part of health systems

Digital data and technology must be fully integrated into national health systems, and should become as essential as hos

pital beds. Too many digital health pilot programs over the past decade have been uncoordinated and focused on sing上海千花坊

le issues. Leadership from national governments is therefore critical to ensuring a coherent approach.

Fortunately, global and country-led efforts are starting to move in this direction. Earlier this year, for example, the D上海千花坊品茶微信

emocratic Republic of the Congo established its first digital health agency, with the aspiration of improving ma

nagement of the healthcare system, providing better care, and making services more accessible.

We can solve the global health crisis and achieve universal coverage, but only by making

digital tools central to all countries’ health systems. No single organization can achieve this on its own: we

need the public, private and social sectors to work together. In fact, the goal must be to make these new technologies s

o widespread that we no longer need to refer to “digital” health, because that is what all health systems will be.

上海后花园女神会所The citizen card of a missing girl taken away by two tenants in her home at Hangzhou was found along the Xiang

shan coastline in Ningbo by search and rescue staff on Wednesday night, Qianjiang Evening News reported.

Hundreds of people including Xiangshan police and civilian rescue teams have taken part in t

The 9-year-old girl, Zhang Zixin, had lived with her grandparents in Qingxi village in Chun’an county of East China’s Zhejiang

上海后花园province. The two tenants, surnamed Liang and Xie, took the girl away on the morning of July 4, saying th

For the US, instead of b上海后花园 military muscles of Ta

iwan, the sales of arms send the wrong message to the secessionis

ts, encouraging them to go further on the road of seeking independence. As a res上海后花园女神会所

ult, the arms sales are anything but a move to stabilize the situation across the Taiwan Straits.

With the current trade frictions between the US and China, what is badly n上海后花园

eeded is more political trust between the two economic heavyweights. Arms sales to t

he island are not only incompatible with the spirit of the three joint communiqués Beijing and Washington signed for the esta

上海后花园女神会所blishment of diplomatic relations, but also set new stumbling blocks in the way of building mutual political trust.

More tension and worsening relations across the Taiwan Straits are not in the interests of the US. Its meddling in the internal af上海后花园

fairs of China in whatever form will only increase the possibility of the mainland resorting to whatever m

eans necessary to realize the final reunification of the island with the motherland.上海后花园女神会所

The US should not hope to see and will not be able to do anything to prevent that scenario from becoming a reality.

上海后花园The best choice for the US is to stay away from Taiwan affairs.

Ouyang Ziyuan, an academician of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, said that China will launch a mission to Mars with M

artian satellite, Martian lander, as well as Martian rover. China Daily writer Zhang Zhouxiang comments:上海后花园女神会所

In his speech, Ouyang mentioned that one of the main purposes of the

probe is to determine if the planet is suitable for terraforming so humans can inhabit it.上海后花园

For some, his words may sound like science fiction. It remains a fact t

hat only about 400 people in the whole of human history have ever ventured into space. Of th

em, only 12 astronauts have left their steps on the moon, the nearest celestial body to our Earth.

No human has been to Mars yet. SpaceX has an ambitious plan to set up a human colony on the Red Planet, but NASA’s ex

isting plan to get humans to the planet seems to have been kiboshed by funding constraints.

China has now thrown its hat into the ring.

While it might be some time in the future, the good news is, once humankind inh

abits Mars and starts to terraform it, the planet’s potential can be fully exploited and its rich supply of resources can p

rovide ample support for human kind’s further development and exploration of the planet.
