Shanghai’s AI ambitions were first outlined in a municipal plan issued in November 2017, when municipal auth

orities pledged to expand the scale of the industry to more than 100 billion yuan ($14.2 billion) by 2020.

The goal was then taken up a notch thanks to the decision by the central governm?亚博体育登录后花园

BrainCo, founded by Harvard University graduate Han Bicheng, developed a technology that can detect and translate hu

Unlike the invasive brain-computer interface technique used by Mu?亚博体育登录后花园

technique, picking up brain signals through electrical sensors placed on a person’s scalp.

A domestic biopharmaceutical company has announced that it plans to submit an application to market probably the world’

亚博体育登录419s first drug which can treat all types of neuroendocrine tumors, or NET, to China’s drug authority within this year.

Based in Shanghai’s Zhangjiang High-tech Park, Hutchison China Meditec

drugwas completed ahead of schedule in June, and that they expect patents to be obtained at the end of this year.

There are currently only two drugs available in the market that can treat tumors. Both can only be used to treat pancreatic NET.

亚博体育登录419Non-pancreatic NET patients account for roughly 80 percent of NET patients in China, doc

tors said. There are an estimated 300,000 patients suffering from NET on the Chinese mainland.

Su Weiguo, executive director and chief scientific officer of the company, said that the company w亚博体育登录419

“We’re also preparing to launch clinical trials in Europe and the Unite

China will ease restrictions on car purchases to support auto sales

as part of its policy package announced Tuesday to boost the country’s consumption.

Regions with limits on vehicle purchases should roll out mea亚博体育登录419

purchase of new energy vehicles, according to a guideline issued by the State Council.

亚博体育登录419品茶微信The guideline outlined 20 measures to support consumption, including a

If they were going to 亚博体育登录会所en they needed to be

?to be completely bilingual. And so we’re working on that,” she said.

Berat has actually created a purely Mandarin speaking environ亚博体育登录会所

ment for her nine girls, now aged from 11-19, ever since they were born: a Mandarin-sp

eaking nanny, a Chinese/English bilingual kindergarten and primary school as well as亚博体育登录会所品茶微信

various extracurricular courses including Chinese dances, musical instruments and chorus.

亚博体育登录会所”So their life has really been sort of all Chinese all the time,” Berat said. “Living in New Y

ork, it’s been possible to immerse them deeply in Chinese language and culture.”

The New York metropolitan area is home to the largest Chinese populat亚博体育登录会所品茶微信

ion outside Asia, with the number of Chinese Americans estimated at about 800,000.

Interestingly, when Berat’s youngest ones, twin sisters Logan and Lachlan attended the bilingu亚博体育登录会所

al Pre-K at the age of 4, both of them easily passed the Chinese test but failed in the assessment of English.

亚博体育登录会所It was such a “highly irregular thing” for children whose parent’s home language was En

glish. They would have been sent to a school for children with “severe learning dis

abilities” if the teacher and the principal had not known the stories of their older sisters.亚博体育登录会所品茶微信

“I have to say you have no idea how proud I am of that because to me, it meant that they were really working hard wit

h their brains for Chinese. It kind of indicates the degree of our commitment to the Chinese.”亚博体育登录会所

Apart from Chinese, all her girls have also learnt Spanish and French, and can speak Albanian, which is Berat’s mother tongue.

亚博体育登录会所For the reason why she put on such a high priority for her childre

n to learn Mandarin, Berat sounded very forward looking and very deep in thought.

“I feel very strongly of technological change in invention that this century is the global ce亚博体育登录会所品茶微信

res that you really know intimately, the better it is (for you),” she emphasized.

“My hope for them from the beginning has been that they will亚博体育登录会所

What are the differen亚博体育登录419een the hinese ma

market and those in other Asian countries and the West in the mobile marketing sector?

I would say the major difference is that the Chinese market has a lot more potential to grow. The a亚博体育登录419品茶微信

dvanced mobile infrastructure, mature measurement technology, and robust mobile payment cultu

亚博体育登录419re, all put China at the forefront of growth potential for app developers and marketers worldwide.

Another important factor I’d like to mention here is our cultural fit. I

think Chinese culture and Israeli culture are a good fit because we share many common val亚博体育登录419品茶微信

ues. We have the courage, creativity, and strong enterprising spirit to create something new.

亚博体育登录419At the same time, feedback is also crucial for us. Our Chinese customers

are usually straightforward about their needs, which makes communication with custom

ers easier and clearer. They tell us what challenges they are facing and what they want from us.亚博体育登录419

How was AppsFlyer’s performance in China during the past year?

亚博体育登录419品茶微信Since we entered the Chinese mainland market in 2013, we have grown alongside this fast-growing market, and

we now have more than 60 percent market share in China. Over the past few years, we have亚博体育登录419

served thousands of customers in China, and have docked almost all the mainstream advertising platforms like Te

亚博体育登录419品茶微信ncent, Bytedance, UC, Baidu, Weibo, iQIYI, Kuaishou, and Xiaomi. Many major companies and smaller companies in C

hina use our technology and product. Our team in China has also grown from five to more than 50. We take our re

sponsibilities seriously. And in the meantime, we’re excited about industry growth.亚博体育登录419

How is AppsFlyer special from other similar companies? What’s your unique selling point?

There are four points that make us different: data accuracy, privacy亚博体育登录419品茶微信

security, the richness of our platform and the fact that we are customer-focused.

“Sales and home prices will both be impacted, since people will not be hurried to buy a house,” Sunac Chairman S?亚博体育登录419品茶微信

Dunhuang was a major city along the ancient Silk Road and boasts a number of cultural

The facilities can simulate various environmental conditions such as temperature, humidity, sunlight, rainfall, snow亚博体育登录千花坊

and soil salinity. They can help scientists understand the different types of strain, such as thermal and physical da

mage, which lead to the deterioration of relics in their natural environment; and advise conservation research.亚博体育登录千花坊
