While industrial robots have become a common sight in factories across
eastern China, the country’s agriculture sector is seen by some as a place where few techn
上海夜生活ologies can take root, due to the high cost and sophisticated natural environment involved in growing food.
But a research institute and a startup based in Fuzhou, capital of East China’s Fujian pro
vince, are determined to change the perception by jointly developing an agricultural robot.上海夜生活品茶微信
The white, 5G-enabled, sensor-rich agricultural robot can move between two rows o
f leafy greens in a greenhouse, collect data about the plants, and feed it back to the control room.
上海夜生活Developed by Fujian Academy of Agricultural Sciences and Fujian Newl
and Era Hi-Tech Co Ltd, the robot is part of their efforts to build an autonomous running farm.
Different from industrial plants where robots can follow preset routes上海夜生活品茶微信
and do fixed jobs such as feeding standardized electronic parts, agricultural env
上海夜生活ironments are far more complex, said Zhao Jian, deputy head of the digital agriculture institute of FAAS.
“Farm robots also have to adapt to a wide variety of highly differentiated crops, livestock and aquatic products,” said Zhao.
To solve the challenges, the research institute and Newland have jointly develop上海夜生活品茶微信
ed a more sophisticated artificial intelligence system. Computer algorithms as well as the hardware for pos
itioning, map construction, route design and avoiding obstacles have all been optimized to suit the agricultural envi
ronment, taking into consideration fertilization, watering the plants, bumpy roads and other natural factors.
filmmakers sho上海夜生活品茶微信uld work harder toward developing new film genres and raising the quality of their storytelling to draw back audiences to the cinema.
“When I started to work in the film sector in 2001, China’s annual box-
office takings were less than 900 million yuan. The figure expanded to 60.9 billion yuan in 2
018. We should keep this (earlier) momentum going despite 2019 looking like a difficult year,” Yu says.
And huddling for warmth has become one of the main themes of the festival forums this year.
Fan Luyuan, chairman of tech giant Alibaba Group’s film subsidiary Alibaba Pictures, say
s Chinese filmmakers should get together to enhance cooperation and combat economic risks.
Instead of investing alone in big-budget films, as in the past, most studios now prefer to joi
n forces to co-finance them, echoes Jiang Ping, general manager of the China Film Group.
For instance, Shanghai Fortress, one of the most anticipated science-fi
ction movies after The Wandering Earth-a game changer in the film genre in China-has s
o far drawn 12 companies on board, with five involved in coproduction and the other seven in co-distribution.

The association also announced that it has set up a preparatory gro

Chen Xuyuan, chairman of Shanghai International Port (Group) Co, which owns th

According to Beijing Youth Daily, Lippi will arrive in Guangzhou, Guangdong province, on Tuesday. His first task will be to
compile a new list of 25 candidates for Team China, which will assemble on June 3 for training. Lippi’s assistants are curr

China’s first aircraft carrier, the Liaoning, and latest nuclear submarines, destroyers and fighter jets will join the parade, Qiu said.
“Some vessels will make their debut for the first time,” Qiu added.
Altogether 32 Chinese vessels and 39 warplanes will take part in the event, according to Qiu.
The vessels will sail in six groups, namely, those of submar
ines, destroyers, frigates, landing ships, auxiliary ships, and aircraft carrier.
The planes will fly in 10 echelons, showcasing aircraft for early warning, reconnaissance, anti-submarine patrol, as wel
l as bombers, fighters, carrier-based fighters, and carrier-based helicopters, Qiu said.
More than 60 countries will send delegations to join multinational naval even
ts marking the anniversary, and over 30 countries of them will send major navy leaders to participate, according to Qiu.
Nearly 20 foreign vessels of various capabilities, including destro
yers, frigates and landing ships, will join Chinese vessels in the naval parade, show
ing to the world the “firm determination to safeguard peace and seek development with joint efforts,” Qiu said.
Organizing multinational naval parades is a unique ceremonial activity of navies, according to Qiu.
unei’s history, will become the country’s longest sea-crossing bridge with a total length of about 30 km. It is scheduled to open to traffic by the end of November 2019.
The CC4 section of the bridge is constructed by China State Construction Engineering C
orp. At around 11.6 km of the 11.8 km-long section will be a land viaduct traversing the mangrove swamp of the
Labu Forest Reserve, the company has established a set of strict safety and green construction evaluation systems to mee
t the high demand for environmental protection and cope with unprecedented difficulty in construction.
The Padma Bridge, 25 meters in width and 10 km in length, will
be built over the Padma River, one of the three major rivers in Bangladesh.
In June 2016, China Railway Major Bridge Engineering Group Co Ltd was awar
ded a $1.55-billion contract by the Bangladeshi government to build the core structure of the bridge.
The bridge is the country’s largest infrastructure project, as wel
l as the largest foreign bridge project undertaken by Chinese companies in terms of total cost.
Once completed, travel time between the capital, Dhaka, and the southern city of Khulna will be shortened to about three hours from 13 hours.
Rising registrations and better technology improve prospects of quicker availability
When Zhao Xueming, a middle school math teacher in Beij

“I was scared to the soul, and I thought about death every day,” he said.
By then, Zhao, who was 36 at the time, had received various treatme
nts at Beijing Tsinghua Changgung Hospital for four months. However, he believed he had s

“The treatments didn’t work well,” he said. “At l
Zhao was lucky. He waited for just around two weeks for an available organ, which was distributed through a national compu
terized organ sharing system, and had an operation that lasted for more than 10 hours in March last year.
He later learned that the organ donor was a young person who died in a car accident
in Hubei province, more than 1,000 kilometers away, but he doesn’t know further details.
In March, a year after the surgery, Zhao enrolled to become an organ dono
r at an organ-donation promotional event held at Beijing Tsinghua Changgung Hospital.
