China and the US will hold the 12th round of trade talks in Shanghai from July 30 to 31, said
Ministry of Commerce spokesman Gao Feng at a news conference on Thursday.
上海419The meetings scheduled for next week will be the first face-to-face discussions betw

Yu Chengdong, CEO of Huawei’s consumer business group, said the smart-screen products, considered the future of

上海龙凤The processor can be used in applications in fields including 5G,
artificial intelligence (AI) and autonomous driving, according to Alibaba.
The processor is built on the RISC-V hardware instruction set architecture (ISA) that is上海龙凤

tions to a source of inspiration just like a person. When users type a word, Xiaoice could draw vastly diverging pictures in response to that word.
上海千花坊”We don’t know what surprises Xiaoice will bring us, and the unpredictability is the charm that attracts us,” Xu said.
This is not the first time that Xiaoice has created something. Started
as a chatting robot in 2014, Xiaoice has already been “talking” with more than 100 million上海千花坊女神会所
users, published two collections of poetry and released and composed dozens of songs.
上海千花坊All these endeavors have helped accumulate more than 5 million followers on a Ch
inese micro blog, as Microsoft continues to experiment with how AI can use emotional intelligence to se
rve as a companion for people and how AI can be used to imbue machines with “creativity”.上海千花坊
Elsewhere in the world, researchers and industry participants are
also experimenting with AI. In 2017, US singer Taryn Southern unveiled Breaking F
上海千花坊ree, a song composed and produced by an AI system developed by US startup Amper Music.
Last year, an AI-generated painting of Edmond Belamy became the firs
t of its kind to be auctioned at Christie’s. The artwork, created by computer algorithms de上海千花坊女神会所
上海千花坊veloped by French AI company Obvious, was sold for more than $430,000.
Just like Xiaoice’s paintings, such AI-generated work is based on
machine-learning models of artificial neural networks that resemble the human brain and ne上海千花坊
rvous system, which can study input materials and produce output in their own right.
上海千花坊女神会所When it comes to AI painting, a neural network that goes by the acronym GAN plays a ke
y role. GAN, which stands for generative adversarial network, creates the image pixel
by pixel. Like any other artist or designer, it produces both broad strokes and fine details in layers.上海千花坊女神会所
But as pioneering AI-generated works appear around the world, the tech companies and art critics are also addressing the fundamental question of
上海千花坊whether the images, poems or songs produced by their networks can be called art at all.
Qiu Zhijie, an artist and professor at China’s Central Academy of Fine Arts, said the answ
er depends on how originality in art is defined when machines are involved in creation.上海千花坊女神会所
“When nobody can tell the difference between paintings genera
ted by AI and those of humans, then we can regard AI’s work as original,” Qiu said.上海千花坊
Apparently, Xiaoice has already passed the test. In May, works produced by the drawing bot under the name Xiao Yubing were
上海千花坊女神会所submitted to the exhibition of postgraduates’ work at China’s Central Academy of Fine Arts. When Xiao Yubing
‘s paintings were presented beside those of humans, nobody realized they were generated by AI.

The photo capturing the moment from Li’s childhood featured in Color of China is on show at Barbey上海后花园
‘s solo exhibition of the same name, which runs at the National Art Museum of China through Sunday.
The exhibition and the publication of the book coincide with the 70th anniversary of
上海后花园the founding of People’s Republic of China, which will be officially celebrated on Oct 1.
Barbey is also among several members of the French Academy of Fine Arts, one of the five academ

These shows mark this year’s 55th anniversary of the formal establishment of Sino-French diplomatic relations.
In one section of the exhibition, photos depicting China’s modern, rapidly-urbanizing cityscap
上海后花园es are projected onto large screen. Another section displays the color images that Barbey captured during his
first two visits to the country in 1973 and 1980, including the photo of Li’s accordion lessons, which evoke a strong feel上海后花园
ing of nostalgia among visitors. They are part of a donation of 70 photos by Barbey to the museum.
上海后花园女神会所Barbey first came to China as a member of a French delegation led by Georges Pompidou w
ho served as France’s president from 1969 until his death in 1974. Accompanying the French dele
gation helped him to extend his visa and stay in China for two more weeks－which he regarded as “very lucky” since trav
el in the country was relatively restricted to Westerners at that time, Barbey tells China Daily.上海后花园女神会所
Barbey returned to China in 1980, this time with his wife Caroline. They traveled extensively around the country, photographing and filming for more than five w
上海后花园eeks in Beijing, Shanghai, Sichuan province and Guangxi Zhuang autonomous region.
Before he came to China, Barbey’s impression of the country was larg

rnational photography agency, Magnum Photos, such as Henri Cartier-Bresson, Robert Capa and Marc Riboud.
They defaced the national emblem mounted at the entrance of the office and painted offensive graffiti on the office’s exterior.
上海乌托邦Lam said the vandalism is in blatant defiance of the nation’s sovereignty and an open chal
lenge to the “one country, two systems” principle. It has caused great harm to the SAR, which is governed u上海乌托邦
nder the principle, and it hurt the sentiments of people in Hong Kong and on the Chinese mainland.
Lam also strongly denounced the “astonishing and outrageous” attacks
上海乌托邦in Yuen Long in the New Territories. Late on Sunday night, attackers in white shir
ts, some wearing masks, assaulted bystanders and commuters at the Yuen Long subway station with bamboo sticks an
d metal poles. They said they were targeting radical protesters who have disrupted local order.上海乌托邦品茶微信
The attackers completely disregarded law and order as they indiscriminately assaulted innocent people, she said, addin
g that what they did was appalling and totally unacceptable. She requested that the police chief conduct an extensive a
上海乌托邦nd in-depth investigation into the incidents and punish those who violated the law.
The SAR government has zero tolerance for any kind of violence at any time, anywhere and toward anyone.
Commissioner of Police Lo Wai-chung pledged that the police investigation will begin imm上海乌托邦品茶微信
ediately, and the force will pursue offenders at all costs in order to bring them to justice.
He also dismissed allegations that the police force acted leniently when facing the violent上海乌托邦
attackers at the Yuen Long subway station. The police force is against any kind of violence, Lo stressed.
Wang Zhimin, director of the Liaison Office, made the “stron
gest condemnation” of the vandalizing of the office on Sunday night.
Saying that Hong Kong has seen a series of radical protests that exceeded the bo
undaries of peaceful demonstration, Wang said these acts have challenged the city’s rul

He said he believed the Hong Kong government and its law-enfo

said another cut in the reserve requirement ratio — which wi
上海乌托邦ll reduce funds banks keep in vaults and boost lending — may be conducted later this year.
“As the United States Federal Reserve will probably gradually cut interest r

ected to further broaden,” said Cheng Shi, chief economist of ICBC International.
上海乌托邦To support financial reforms, the People’s Bank of China — the cent
ral bank — may refrain from broad-based easing but adopt more structural tools in the
coming months, such as targeted reserve cuts to boost lending to small businesses, Cheng said.上海乌托邦品茶微信
On the fiscal side, policies facilitating debt financing of infrastructure projects may be stepped up, he added.
The country has set a 2.15-trillion-yuan ($312.4 billion) spe
cial local government bond issuance quota to help finance infrastructure projects.
Iris Pang, director of ING in China, said policymakers may even
上海乌托邦roughly double the fiscal stimulus for infrastructure projects to 4 trillion yuan.
This will offset the expected reduction in exports and related supply-chain reloc上海乌托邦
ation activities, securing the GDP growth rate for the second half at 6.3 percent.
JPMorgan’s Zhu said the economy may slow a bit in the second half but ma
nage to grow by 6.2 percent for the full year, as increased infrastructure investment and stab上海乌托邦
le consumption will counter the drag from exports and manufacturing investment.
Xue Yi, a finance professor at the University of International Business and Economics in Beijing
, said the debut of the Nasdaq-style tech-heavy STAR Market will also lend support to the economy.
On Monday, the first 25 companies are due to debut on the Shanghai Stock Exchange’s STAR Market.上海乌托邦
“In the second half, the much-anticipated new board is expected to raise public interest i
n the whole capital market and usher in more funds, thus reducing financing costs for listed firms,” Xue
said, adding that much more of the new board’s boost to the economy will unfold in the long run.
