How many steps to excavate RISC-V gold mine?

Author | Bao Yonggang

Sometimes the future runs faster than people think.
As Liu Cixin wrote in "Three-body", human beings are a race with "technological explosion".
The rolling wheel of the times constantly reshapes people’s cognition of technology. Even those who light a single spark can hardly imagine the future wildfire.
Moakley and Eckert, who invented the world’s first general-purpose computer in 1946, could never have predicted that the computing power once obtained by a 170-square-kilometer, 30-ton behemoth can now be easily obtained through cloud computing.
John mccarthy, who put forward the concept of artificial intelligence in 1961, can hardly imagine the scene where AI assistants are active at people’s fingertips today.
Martin cooper, who invented the mobile phone in 1990s, never imagined that the mobile communication tools he developed almost evolved into "external organs" of human beings one day, and immersed in all aspects of life.
Behind these unexpected things, there is a reason: the evolution of the underlying processor.
At the end of the 20th century, Arm CPU did not enter the PC market smoothly, but after turning to the mobile CPU market and changing its business model, it finally came to a bright future and made the mobile Internet prosperous.
At the beginning of the 21st century, x86 CPU, which flourished in the PC processor market, unexpectedly entered the server market with the advantage of cost performance and promoted the development of cloud computing.
In 2010, RISC-V, a new instruction set, was born at the University of California, Berkeley. In 2014, the first people in China who came into contact with RISC-V were attracted by the open source characteristics of RISC-V, but no one knows how RISC-V will develop in the future.
When Ali Pingtou’s team came into contact with RISC-V in 2014, they were also confused about the prospect of commercialization of this new instruction set. Brother Pingtou, who recognized the open source concept, first verified the technical capability of RISC-V and then proved the high performance of RISC-V.
In the autumn of 2022, Brother Pingtou rushed into the blue ocean of RISC-V energy-efficient CPU with Xuantie C908, and wanted to explore the edge AI market.
This is the key battle of Pingtou, and it will also be an important milestone on the way of RISC-V.
The "accident" that RISC-V will bring to the technology industry lies in the development of RISC-V in recent years.
01
Energy-efficient blue ocean,
RISC-V comes up with two killers.
In 2014, RISC-V was only active in the circle of a few technology enthusiasts. “In 2014, we were also somewhat uncertain about whether we should fully invest in RISC-V.Meng Jianyi, vice president of Pingtou Brother, said, "I am mainly worried about whether this instruction set from academia is capable enough, and I don’t know the advantages of its functions."
In fact, this is also the concern of most people who hold a wait-and-see attitude towards RISC-V. However, under the appeal of the open source concept, with the joint efforts of academic circles and the contributions of technical geeks, RISC-V was introduced into China in 2018 and began to attract attention.
In this year, Pingtou, who came into contact with RISC-V early, also took the lead in developing the first RISC-V CPU-

Xuantie E902, a CPU with low performance and low power consumption. In fact, this is the product of Pingtou Brother’s test of RISC-V. After verifying the low power consumption of RISC-V, Pingtou Brother introduced a Xuantie C910 with a main frequency performance of 2.5GHz a year later, and its ability to make high-performance products with RISC-V was also verified.

Having enough confidence in RISC-V, in 2020, Pingtou launched Xuantie C906, which has a more cost advantage. It is also the first commercial CPU in the world whose main frequency exceeds 1GHz. A year later, Brother Pingtou launched Xuantie E907 with improved performance.
marketalwaysEnergy-efficient RISC-V products at Arm Cortex A55 level are always absent.
Cortex A55 is a product launched by Arm as early as 2017. Until 2022, many products, including home appliance SoC and automobile MCU, still use Cortex A55 core. This is enough to show the market demand for energy-efficient CPU, so at the 2022 Yunqi Conference, Pingtou released the latest generation of energy-efficient CPU Xuantie C908.
Since it is a latecomer product, if you want to succeed in the market, you must have more attractive features.
"Xuantie C908 is the most energy-efficient product in Xuantie’s family now."Meng Jianwei introduced that Pingtou promoted technological innovation from the whole CPU architecture and AI energy efficiency.
While having higher performance than Arm A55 of the same class,Xuantie C908′ s higher energy efficiency and native support AI are its two killers in the energy-efficient blue ocean market.
The data shows that the main frequency performance of Xuantie C908 is up to 2.0GHz, which is 40% higher than that of Xuantie C906 and 24% higher than that of Xuantie C906. It natively supports Vector 1.0, and has more than 20% energy efficiency advantage compared with Cortex A55.

"RISC-V itself has the advantage of streamlining. To further achieve high energy efficiency under a streamlined architecture, what we can do is to design the entire hardware circuit as simplified and ingenious as possible to achieve a more extreme energy efficiency ratio." Meng Jianwei said.
It is a great challenge to realize high-performance and energy-efficient CPU. In order to improve energy efficiency, Pingtou brother has made various innovations. On the one hand, he chose a 9-stage dual-launch assembly line; On the other hand, the instruction fusion technology is adopted, that is, two instructions are turned into one for execution; Also, the energy efficiency is improved through the optimization of memory bandwidth.
Native support AI, as the killer of Xuantie C908 to achieve differentiation, also needs to consider energy efficiency. Based on the standard Vector architecture, Pingtou has made an extended design to support the new Int4 data format, which makes Xuantie C908 support AI natively and take into account energy efficiency.
Customers who use C908 will no longer need a separate NPU if their computing power demand for AI is less than 1TOPS.For this customer, it not only eliminates the trouble of choosing from dozens of NPUs in the market, but also reduces the difficulty of development.
Don’t underestimate the AI computing power of 1TOPS,This computing power is enough to meet the intelligent needs of most current smart cameras, and it can also develop the recently popular AI scanning pen.
"An emerging architecture is definitely looking for emerging markets and emerging applications. becausefrommarketMost productsThere is room for development.The link is the first to break through, and it is easier to form a demonstration of large-scale application."Meng Jianyi said.
Battery-powered products with demand for AI are just the blue ocean suitable for RISC-V energy-efficient CPU to take the lead in breaking through. The demand for intelligence in this field is becoming more and more popular, but the challenge in this field lies in ecology.
Besides differentiated technologies, Pingtou Brother will also provide a complete set of solutions, which is also different from Arm’s way, which makes it easier for users to develop and make more free choices.
02
Nugget edge AI
Four gold mines, ecology is the strongest tool.
Xuantie C908 has very clear application scenarios-intelligent interaction, multimedia terminal, AR/VR, wireless communication, etc. “Xuantie C908 should be the largest product among our high-end products."Meng Jianyi judgment.
The urgency of market demand for products can be seen from the speed of commercialization. Leifeng. com learned that,Xuantie C908 already has many early users,One of them is Jianan Technology, which has also worked in RISC-V field for many years. Based on Xuantie C908, Jianan Technology is developing a high-end stereo vision AI chip.
If we want to push our products to a wider market, we need ecological prosperity.The relationship between chips and upper ecology is like the relationship between roots and trunk branches,Only when the chip has enough capabilities can the upper software ecology prosper.
To measure a processor, we should not only look at the hardware,The ability of basic software is also indispensable, which is the consensus of the industry.
"We provide complete development tools, and at the same time we continue to invest.This year, our most important progress is that we already have a very rich support of third-party commercial tools.There are also more and more open source tools to support our processors. "Meng Jianyi said," We have cooperated with some very influential companies in the ecology, and the support of third-party commercial and open-source tools will be the characteristic of our processors. “
At the same time, the advantage of commercial and open source toolchains is that it is easier to solve the problems encountered in the development process.
For example, in the RISC-V ecosystem, debugging is not well done, and Pingtou has a better plan. Brother Pingtou provides HHB compilation tool, which can not only make good use of the AI capability of Xuantie CPU, but also support the AI IP of third parties.
On the next level, TMedia, a cross-platform video vision application framework launched by Pingtou Brother, has the characteristics of high elasticity, high energy efficiency and high scalability, and better supports customers in developing applications.
Only the software tools at the bottom of the chip are still not enough, and the mainstream operating system needs to be supported. In the low-power MCU market, the application of RISC-V does not depend on the software ecology, which is the key reason why RISC-V can ship 10 billion chips even without a mature ecology.
If you want to dig gold in the energy-efficient edge computing market, you can’t get around the problem of software ecology.This year, a major development of RISC-V is that Google Android natively supports RISC-V processors,Andriod has a very large and rich mobile ecosystem. Andriod’s native support for RISC-V adds a new space for the application of RISC-V in the mobile market.
"This is symbolic, Google Android accepts RISC-V,It’s like RISC-V officially entered the Andriod ecological arena,Before, it was more like warming up on the sidelines. "Meng Jianyi said.
Actually, Andriod supports RISC-V, and flathead brother plays a key role.
In addition to the mobile ecosystem, RISC-V is also moving towards the PC market with higher performance. At the Yunqi Conference in 2022,Pingtou also announced the completion of the first adaptation of RISC-V to the community version of Tongxin operating system., successfully running desktop environment and a variety of office and development software.
Not only that, not long ago, based on the high-performance SoC prototype "Drag Shadow 1520", Pingtou completed the adaptation of the dragon lizard operating system, which is the world’s first RISC-V architecture compatible with the operating system on the cloud.
From the terminal to the PC and then to the cloud, Pingtou Brother has completed the deep adaptation of RISC-V with RTOS, Yocto Linux, Android, Dragon lizard, Tongxin deepin and other international mainstream and domestic operating systems.

It also means that,Brother Pingtou has removed the obstacle of RISC-V developers developing end-to-end cloud software system adaptation,Although there is still a lot of work to be done, at least the first pioneering step has been taken, which provides a good foundation for the next RISC-V ecological prosperity and rich application.
"The ecology of RISC-V has established a certain foundation, both in general computing and in computing with limited resources." He Xiaoqing, director of China Software Industry Association and chairman of Embedded System Branch, thinks.
Meng Jianyi believes that when 100 billion RISC-V chips are shipped, the ecology of RISC-V should have been basically established by then, which can also prove the tenacious vitality of RISC-V architecture.
With the gradual completion of hardware and the accelerated development of software ecology, the key to the surprising application of RISC-V lies in grasping the development direction of RISC-V.
03
RISC-V should also be in 5G mode.

Ni Guangnan, academician of China Academy of Engineering, said at Yunqi Conference 2022: "The open source model has moved from the software field to the hardware field, and RISC-V provides an opportunity for China to take the initiative in the development of chip industry. China should play its due role in the global open source field, and contribute China’s wisdom, China’s program and China’s strength to break the technological monopoly and promote the world’s collaborative innovation. "

Obviously, the core of RISC-V is open source,To stabilize the RISC-V architecture, different companies need to explore it from different angles, otherwise the architecture will have no vitality.At this time, contributing more institutions or companies will play a more important role in the future development of RISC-V.

This is also an opportunity for China Company. Bao Yungang, a researcher at the Institute of Computing Technology, Chinese Academy of Sciences, believes that,In the past 20 years, there are two main modes of CPU development in China.One is through "introduction-digestion-absorption-re-innovation"High-speed rail mode;One is to build a technical system independently and build an industrial ecology independently.Beidou mode.

In recent years, the third mode-5G mode has appeared.More and more domestic enterprises spontaneously choose open instruction set RISC-V, participate in the global ecological construction of RISC-V, and build international advantages by integrating into the international ecology, being compatible with international standards. "Bao Yungang said.

Under the 5G mode of CPU, it is even more necessary for China company to actively participate in the formulation of RISC-V standard and contribute more to RISC-V community.

"Limited by the concept, company size, talents and other conditions, domestic RISC-V companies have relatively less investment and contribution to the open source community than many foreign companies." Many people in RISC-V industry said to Leifeng.

"Our software team has slowly stepped out of a path and will make a certain contribution to the software. We will gradually have such a system, which has a great investment.We also call on domestic companies to increase their investment in RISC-V field."Meng Jianyi said.

It is reported that Pingtou is a member of the board of directors of RISC-V International Foundation, and leads 11 technical directions in the foundation, such as data center, storage management, Android, security, etc. Its importance and quantity rank first in the world and the first in China.

Just as both x86 and Arm have encountered accidents in the course of development, no one can know what kind of surprise RISC-V can bring to the world at present, but only by making greater contributions to standard setting and ecological development can we have a better chance of making history.

Will Alibaba’s forming rich ecology of cloud integration bring some revolutionary changes?

Great reward for contemporary confusing behavior 1

The concepts of "machine learning" and "artificial intelligence" are hot.

Many media outlets shut up about big data, face recognition, machine learning and artificial intelligence. Actually, several media reporters/companies/individuals have learned statistics well. They know what Gaussian distribution, Poisson distribution, dimension reduction, clustering, Bayesian algorithm and Markov Monte Carlo are?

People who are keen on machine learning are nothing more than brushing their sense of existence or fooling investors/consumers in the circle of friends and wine bureau. A word is cool, which doesn’t mean that the people or companies who talk about it are also cool. Keep your eyes open and don’t be dazzled by the "big" data wave.

Beijing Runfeng School held the promotion meeting of "AI Empowerment Classroom Evaluation" project.

With the implementation of "2035 Plan" and "Double Reduction", it has greatly promoted the development of science and technology+education, brought education modernization into the campus and changed the traditional education mode.

Under the guidance of President Zhang Yibao, Beijing Runfeng School is also in full swing to explore the AI empowerment classroom evaluation project. The project team led by Wang Su, director of the Chinese Academy of Education, conducted three online trainings for teachers in the middle and late October with the themes of "classroom teaching evaluation of artificial intelligence based on new curriculum standards", "classroom teaching diagnosis of AI empowerment under the background of new curriculum standards" and "SOLO classification theory and its application in core literacy evaluation".

On October 24th, 2022, in order to further promote the development of the project, Beijing Runfeng School held a project promotion meeting of "AI Empowerment Classroom Evaluation". President Zhang Yibao of the school and all the members of the research institute of "AI Empowerment Classroom Evaluation" project participated in the seminar, and the teachers shared their gains and thoughts on the three online trainings.

Teachers have said that they have gained a lot, learned about the data collection standards in the solo Classification Theory Classroom Evaluation Scale, and realized that classroom evaluation and diagnosis is not an end, but more about accurately diagnosing the teaching content through peer classroom evaluation, and then changing and optimizing the teaching. AI-enabled course teaching diagnosis is to do this. Learning and thinking methods are divided into comparison and classification, association and imagination analysis, and comprehensive induction. As a tool, it helps students to do self-test and self-optimization. With the introduction of more new technologies into the campus, AI-enabled classroom evaluation and diagnosis is still at a stage from 0 to 1. Teachers can also feel that the classroom needs this technology. It can objectively evaluate each lesson, effectively conform to the students’ cognitive law, and is also a continuous support for children’s thinking development.

Principal’s summary

"Follow the Opportunity: Growing and Creating in the Action Research of High-end Specialty"

Finally, President Zhang Yibao made a summary of the meeting based on everyone’s learning and training experience and harvest sharing, and put forward opinions and suggestions on the promotion of the AI empowerment classroom evaluation project in the next stage. He said:

The action research of "AI Empowerment Classroom Evaluation" project is modern, advanced and creative, and it is an opportunity and symbol to highlight the future core competitiveness research. The content of this research is a national project, which is jointly sponsored by China Education Society and China Academy of Education. The opportunity is rare, and every teacher in the project may and may have the opportunity to become a "seed teacher" of this research in the future. For the first batch of researchers, explorers, practitioners and constructors of the "AI-enabled classroom evaluation" project, the host will also hold a national sharing meeting on the research of the project, which may become the exhibitor and classroom practice of the project in the future.

At present, our initial research mainly focuses on English, mathematics and English, which will be helpful to every teacher’s career development and students’ learning effect. In daily teaching activities, using innovative evaluation tools and modern information technologies such as big data and artificial intelligence, exploring the longitudinal evaluation of students’ learning elements in the whole process and the horizontal evaluation of all elements of morality, intelligence, body, beauty and labor, vigorously developing artificial intelligence technology and actively exploring the integration and development of artificial intelligence and educational evaluation are important measures and the only way to promote wisdom education in China. Classroom teaching evaluation is an important part of educational evaluation system. Trying to carry out classroom teaching evaluation under artificial intelligence is helpful to enrich the evaluation content, change the evaluation methods, record the growth track and promote the efficient development of intelligent evaluation.

The theme and strategy of our school-based promotion in the next stage is "Follow the opportunity: grow and create in the action research of high-end majors".

First, "follow".According to the project standards, closely following the unified deployment of project team experts, collecting a large amount of information through teachers’ on-site classroom according to the content and schedule, building resources, and constructing the architecture element system of big data resource base for classroom AI evaluation through big data interconnection.

Second, "follow the learning".Let each of our project experiment teachers continue to study and research on the shoulders of "giants", so as to improve their professional quality, cultural heritage and comprehensive ability.

Third, "follow the enlightenment".Teachers need to study the new curriculum standards in depth, learn SOLO and DOK evaluation theories, combine their own classroom practice, feel the theory, understand the logic, and inform the students, and apply the opinions and suggestions put forward in the front-line teaching research process to the teaching practice, so that teaching and learning can learn from each other and learn from others by analogy.

Fourth, "follow the evaluation".Classroom teaching evaluation is based on teachers’ teaching and students’ learning, focusing on improving teachers’ teaching ability and classroom teaching quality. From the perspective of its value implication, classroom teaching evaluation is a process of value judgment under the cooperation of multiple subjects, a process of collecting various information to discover value, a process of accurately collecting information to provide decision-making for teaching improvement, and a process of giving full play to its feedback function and developing value. At present, the traditional classroom teaching evaluation is characterized by internal and external multi-evaluation, evaluation and judgment of process and performance. Driven by artificial intelligence technology, it will promote the reform of classroom teaching evaluation in the aspects of evaluation subject, content, method and result, realize the accurate collection of real classroom and track the growth track of teachers and students.

Fifth, "follow it".With the help of artificial intelligence technology, face recognition, speech recognition and other technologies are used to automatically calculate, analyze and evaluate the performance information of teachers and students in classroom teaching. So that teachers can get the feedback data of the evaluation system in class in real time, and master all the students’ listening situation, so as to adjust the teaching contents and methods in time and remind the "distracted" students. The classroom teaching evaluation under artificial intelligence speeds up the evaluation process, improves the feedback effect of classroom teaching evaluation on teachers’ teaching and students’ learning, and realizes the efficient development of classroom teaching evaluation.

We believe and expect that with the help of experts such as Director Wang of Chinese Academy of Educational Sciences and Dr. Yuan, and with the cooperation and co-construction of peer leading teachers in national experimental schools, our Runfeng School will surely promote the experimental process of "AI Empowerment Classroom Evaluation" project, provide students with an efficient and high-level learning environment, fuel teachers’ scientific research ability and accelerate their professional growth, and contribute to the high-quality development of the school.

The following is part of the report.

Five intelligent translation artifacts are recommended, which can be switched at will in many languages. It is recommended to collect them!

Hello, everyone, I’m a senior brother.

There are endless translation tools on the market. In order for everyone to use the really useful ones, today, my senior brother is here to give you a summary of five pro-testing and useful translation tools. Their translation accuracy and efficiency are very high, so friends in need should collect them quickly!

1. Tencent Translation Jun

Tencent’s online translation website, which supports artificial intelligence translation, has a very simple interface and no advertisements, so it is convenient to translate sentences, short articles, etc.

It supports translation and simultaneous interpretation in 17 languages, with accurate and efficient language recognition, and is suitable for foreign exchanges, speeches, conferences, etc.

Open the website, copy the content to be translated into a blank text box, then set the translation language, click the "Translate" button, and you can finish the translation soon. You can also play the translation result or correct the error, and finally copy the translated text directly.

2. Ali translation

Easy-to-use online real-time translation website, which supports translation in many fields, including e-commerce, medical care and finance, covering 214 languages such as Chinese, English, Russian, Portuguese and Japanese;

At the same time, it also provides professional and powerful voice and image recognition technology, which can be used to translate documents, pictures, videos, voices, etc.

After entering the website, we can translate the text directly, set up the industry/field at the top to improve the translation accuracy, select the translation language, and then enter the original text in the blank box, and the website will automatically give the translation result, and copy it directly.

3. Netease is a stranger

A workbench that supports online transfer of audio and video files. The platform has a wealth of translation tools, which can quickly translate our uploaded documents, audio, video, pictures, etc.

At the same time, online editing is also supported, and the translation results can be exported to local files, which is very simple to use.

For example, the "video translation" function of the website can quickly generate Chinese and English bilingual subtitles for our uploaded video files.

After logging in to the website, select this function, upload the video file to be translated, fill in the project name and translation language, and finally click Submit, and the translation will be completed soon, with good accuracy.

4. Baidu translation

Many small partners should have used Baidu Translate’s web page for online translation, but in fact it also has PC, which is a very small translator;

You can not only directly input or paste text in the text box for translation, but also support functions such as document translation, screenshot translation, and scratch translation.

The software supports the translation of many languages. According to the content to be translated, general fields such as biomedicine, electronic technology, water conservancy machinery, etc. can be set to make the translation results more accurate.

For example, if we have a document to be translated now, we can just use its "document translation" function to upload the document for translation.

After the translation is finished, we can edit or export the translated text, but there is only one chance to edit and export the file for free.

5.WPS

At work, we often use WPS to read and edit various documents, but in fact, the software contains many practical gadgets.

Such as file format conversion, full-text translation, screenshot extraction, image translation, etc., so we can use WPS to translate the whole document, document fragments or images in the document.

We can preview the translation results and compare them with the original text, or view the complete translation results, and finally download the translation results document.

However, the translation function of the software is not completely free to use, and some translation functions can only be used by opening members.

How about it? Are you full of gains after reading the article?

The theme forum of innovation and data integration was successfully held, and experts and scholars discussed the cutting-edge technology of the industry together.

People’s Daily Online, Changsha, November 5th. Yesterday afternoon, the 2022 World Congress on Computing held a thematic forum on algorithm innovation and data integration in Changsha. The forum gathered experts, scholars and industry leaders in the fields of algorithm, computing power and data, and discussed the new kinetic energy brought by algorithm innovation and the integration of algorithm and data to promote the intelligent and digital development and transformation of industries, and its important supporting role in core technology breakthrough, emerging industry development and high-quality development of digital economy.

The theme forum on the integration of algorithm and data has invited many experts and scholars to share in-depth topics through on-the-spot discussions and lectures in the cloud. Huang Heyan, dean of the Institute of Artificial Intelligence of Beijing Institute of Technology, said: The core technology of digital economy involves data, algorithm and computing power. As the "language" in the era of digital economy, algorithms affect the development potential of digital economy. Excellent algorithms can mine high-value data to complete the transformation and upgrading of key businesses. High-quality data can constantly train and optimize algorithms, and promote algorithm improvement and innovation.

At the same time, Chen Shiqing, an academician of the National Academy of Engineering and an academician of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, gave a keynote speech entitled "Design and Application Scenarios of Information System Architecture Supporting Digital Economy". He shared the integrated management solution of intelligent unmanned energy station system based on distributed intelligent super-computing management control platform, which can provide energy-saving for high-energy-consuming subjects. This solution can enable energy enterprises to realize intelligent unmanned management, reduce energy consumption and management costs for enterprises, and provide a stable manufacturing environment for industrial interconnection.

At the meeting, Dong Jian, deputy director of the Information Technology Research Center of China Institute of Electronic Technology Standardization, and Yang Panfei, engineer of the Fifth Institute of Electronics, Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, jointly released the Progress Report on Benchmarking of Computing Products. Dong Jian said that in the future, the working group will continue to support the iterative optimization of computing products’ performance, improve the capability of traction computing industry, and provide a starting point for promoting the healthy and orderly development of the entire chain of computing industry.

Yang Panfei said that the benchmark suite for comprehensive performance testing of computing products can alleviate the problem that the industry relies heavily on open source tools and has no independent testing tools; Solve the problems of non-uniform evaluation basis of computer system performance, multiple evaluation dimensions and no comprehensive performance evaluation tools; Solve that problem that the performance simulation test is different from the actual us experience, and alleviate the limitation of benchmark test program.

"Excellent algorithms can mine high-value data to complete the transformation and upgrading of key businesses. In turn, high-quality data can continuously train and optimize the algorithm, promote the improvement and innovation of the algorithm, promote and integrate each other, and jointly create new kinetic energy for the intelligent and digital development and transformation of various industries. " Qiu Jianhua, chairman of Wisdom Eye Technology Co., Ltd., gave a speech titled "AI Computing Drives Life and Health", pointing out that medical AI will become the most important output source for increasing medical service capacity, and it is expected to maintain a high growth rate of 40% within 3-5 years.

Subsequently, Zhu Lantian, co-founder and CTO of Songguo Travel, gave a keynote speech on "Algorithm Innovation Makes Urban Traffic Better" around the impact of algorithms on urban traffic and urban slow traffic. He pointed out that the urban management of shared travel has gradually transitioned from the artificial decision-making era to the intelligent decision-making era of algorithms. After five years’ precipitation and accumulation, Pinecone Travel has found out a set of algorithm governance mode, and deeply applied the algorithm in three dimensions: supply and demand balance, vehicle scheduling and operation management.

"The algorithm empowers urban traffic to achieve the effect of releasing stock, limiting increment, balancing supply and demand, and needs active intervention to avoid vehicle accumulation, thus improving urban traffic pressure." Zhu Lantian said that the data shows that after the intelligent four-dimensional dispatching system went online, it effectively improved the vehicle moving efficiency of operation and maintenance personnel, and the vehicle utilization rate also increased by 20%.

In addition to the balance between supply and demand and vehicle scheduling, another important application of intelligent traffic management by using algorithms is how to regulate users’ behavior. The key point lies in the intelligent setting of virtual urban infrastructure such as parking spots, no-parking areas and service areas.

Finally, Niu Xinyu, founder and CEO of Kunyun Technology, Zhang Yu, senior vice president of Zhongke Yushu, and Yu Zheng, vice president of Beijing Haizhi Technology, respectively gave keynote speeches on providing the next generation computing platform to accelerate the landing of artificial intelligence, software-defined DPU to continuously break through the system performance boundary, and the application of cognitive intelligence and graph analysis technology in enterprise-level big data.

AI empowerment of traditional Chinese medicine makes the construction mode of medical community in various counties constantly innovate.

In recent years, keywords such as medical association and medical community have appeared frequently in the documents of the government and competent departments, and the construction mode of medical association and medical community has been mentioned by everyone. What are the differences between medical association and medical association? What benefits can they bring to the local area? How to build a medical association/medical community? These are the concerns of the leaders of local health departments and hospitals.

What is the difference between "medical community" and "medical association"?

The full name of "medical association" is "medical service community", and the full name of medical association is "medical association construction". "Medical community" refers to a holistic medical organization structure constructed by linking hospitals in a region with other medical service institutions and organizations, emphasizing "community". Its remarkable feature is to realize the integration of people and property, and all medical institutions have the same legal person.

The "medical association" is the integration of medical resources in a certain area to form a system of medical mutual assistance and sharing, and the emphasis is on "association". Urban medical groups, county medical associations, cross-regional specialist alliances and telemedicine collaboration all belong to this category.

County medical service community refers to taking county hospitals as the leader, integrating county and township medical and health resources, and implementing group operation and management. Efforts should be made to reform and improve the management system and operation mechanism of county-level hospitals and township hospitals (community health service centers), and form a service community, a responsibility community, a benefit community and a management community.

Traditional Chinese medicine community highlights the unique advantages of traditional Chinese medicine.

Medical community is an important part of primary medical care, and the competent department has been emphasizing that Chinese medicine should give full play to its advantages in disease prevention, treatment and rehabilitation at the primary level.

In order to avoid the "neglect" of traditional Chinese medicine in the construction of medical community. In 2019, the National Health and Wellness Commission and state administration of traditional chinese medicine jointly issued the "Notice on Promoting the Construction of Close County Medical Community", encouraging county-level Chinese medicine hospitals to take the lead in setting up medical community, "strengthening" the grass-roots Chinese medicine service system, "enhancing" the global Chinese medicine service capacity, and providing effective, high-quality and convenient Chinese medicine services for the masses.

Practice has proved that the traditional Chinese medicine community shows the unique advantages and value role of traditional Chinese medicine in disease prevention and treatment, and plays an important role in solving the problem of "difficult and expensive medical treatment" of grassroots people.

AI empowerment of traditional Chinese medicine vigorously promotes the community of traditional Chinese medicine in the county.

With the continuous enrichment and comprehensive promotion of the application of artificial intelligence of traditional Chinese medicine, medical associations and medical communities in many areas have made great achievements under the empowerment of AI of traditional Chinese medicine.

The following are several representative cases of intelligent Chinese medicine community in Congbao Science and Technology Construction-

Haiyan, Zhejiang: The Benchmark of Digital Reform of Traditional Chinese Medicine in Zhejiang Province

Haiyan, Zhejiang Province, initiated the reform mode of Chinese medicine intelligent medical community with "grass-roots Chinese medicine, intelligent application and integrated service" in China. Through the comprehensive coverage of Chinese medicine artificial intelligence in medical institutions at all levels of "county-town-village", the coverage rate and integrated management rate of Chinese medicine community health services in the county reached 100%, meeting the needs of the masses for "convenient access to Chinese medicine, good medical treatment and safe use of Chinese medicine".

Haiyan Intelligent Medical Community of Traditional Chinese Medicine has been running steadily for seven years, reshaping the governance system of traditional Chinese medicine, further standardizing doctors’ diagnosis and treatment behaviors by implementing digital supervision, realizing the integration of traditional Chinese medicine services and managing homogeneous traditional Chinese medicine diagnosis and treatment services; Sharing the wisdom Chinese pharmacy breaks the inherent interest chain and service chain of the pharmacy, realizes the linkage of medical treatment, medicine and medical insurance, and realizes the sharing of high-quality Chinese medicine resources; Artificial intelligence application innovates the inheritance mechanism of traditional Chinese medicine, which has changed the traditional mode of traditional Chinese medicine for thousands of years, that is, teachers and disciples, and fathers and sons, and effectively promoted the innovation, inheritance and development of traditional Chinese medicine.

At present, more than 200 counties (cities, districts) across the country have visited and studied Haiyan’s modern Chinese medicine health service, and more than 50 counties (cities, districts) have copied and landed; Haiyan was selected into the only 8 grass-roots health comprehensive experimental areas in China, selected into Zhejiang Digital Society Case Collection and Excellent Application Case Collection of Digital Government System, won many national and provincial honors such as Zhejiang Digital Reform Breakthrough Award, and became the benchmark of digital reform of traditional Chinese medicine in Zhejiang Province.

Songyang, Zhejiang Province: A Community of Traditional Chinese Medicine and Medicine with Integration and Development

Songyang traditional Chinese medicine intelligent medical community model is a way of integration and development. Chinese medicine hospitals and people’s hospitals take the lead in the construction of medical community respectively. All Chinese medicine services in medical institutions led by people’s hospitals are uniformly handed over to Chinese medicine hospitals to provide Chinese medicine services through information channels and intelligent means, and Chinese medicine hospitals provide unified business guidance.

The intelligent solution of basic level Chinese medicine service of Songzhong Intelligent Medicine Community reconstructs the mode of Chinese medicine intelligently, automatically and digitally, and provides all-round one-stop services for patients, such as medical treatment, prescription and distribution, which greatly improves the "good medicine+good medicine" service ability of basic level Chinese medicine.

At present, the number of TCM services in Songyang has reached 750,000 in the past two years, and the coverage rate of TCM in the whole county has basically reached 100% at the village level.

In 2022, Songyang County was awarded the title of "National Advanced Unit of Grass-roots Traditional Chinese Medicine".

Songyang model solved the problem of non-communication of traditional Chinese medicine services among different medical communities, responded to the multi-development construction required by the policy documents, reconstructed the county traditional Chinese medicine service model with traditional Chinese medicine artificial intelligence, and effectively promoted the coexistence and development of the two medical communities.

Xindu District, Chengdu: Top Three Hospital of Traditional Chinese Medicine takes the lead in building the intelligent community of traditional Chinese medicine.

Xindu District Traditional Chinese Medicine Community is led by Chengdu Xindu District Traditional Chinese Medicine Hospital, covering the township medical institutions, village clinics and community health service stations under its jurisdiction. With the help of the intelligent platform of traditional Chinese medicine, it realizes the three-level deployment of "district-town-village", and realizes the full coverage of traditional Chinese medicine intelligence in primary medical institutions. Medical community helps doctors to quickly improve clinical service level, improve medical quality, reduce medical risks, and give full play to the advantages of "simplicity, convenience, cheapness and examination" of traditional Chinese medicine at the grassroots level.

At the 2021 Grassroots Health Innovation and Development Conference, with its outstanding highlights in many aspects, such as information intelligence of traditional Chinese medicine, circulation of Chinese herbal pieces, management of human resources, etc., Chengdu Xindu District Traditional Chinese Medicine Intelligent Medical Community won the 3rd Excellent Case Award for Grassroots Innovation, which is the only case that a traditional Chinese medicine hospital in Sichuan Province exchanged at the conference.

Xindu District Hospital of Traditional Chinese Medicine, as a top-three Chinese medicine hospital, takes "internet plus Traditional Chinese Medicine" as its starting point, and with the help of the intelligent system of traditional Chinese medicine, has gradually established a compact county-level intelligent community of traditional Chinese medicine, forming a service working mechanism of cooperation between traditional Chinese medicine and western medicine and linkage between institutions and teams, which has improved the county-level traditional Chinese medicine service capacity as a whole.

Changshu: a medical community of specialized alliances inherited by regional schools

Changshu City, Jiangsu Province is one of the 567 "pilot counties of compact county-level medical community" in China. Through information and intelligent technology, Changshu Traditional Chinese Medicine Specialist Alliance Project has established a digital Chinese medicine service system that comprehensively covers three-level medical institutions and regulatory departments, such as Changshu Traditional Chinese Medicine Hospital, 31 township hospitals and village clinics, and built Changshu Traditional Chinese Medicine decocting center to realize the empowerment of Chinese medicine diagnosis and treatment, inheritance, and supervision.

Changshu Traditional Chinese Medicine Specialist Alliance takes the digital reform of traditional Chinese medicine as the starting point, highlights the first-mover advantages of digital governance in Changshu and the characteristic advantages of "Yushan Medical School", and combines the local Yushan Medical School live transmission with the intelligent specialist construction in primary medical institutions, effectively improving medical quality, promoting academic brand, strengthening the construction of Chinese medicine talents, and making contributions to enhancing people’s sense of access to Chinese medicine services.

Anji, Zhejiang: Comprehensive supervision of TCM data of multi-medical community

Anji Intelligent Cloud Platform of Traditional Chinese Medicine takes Anji County Hospital of Traditional Chinese Medicine as the lead hospital, builds it in Anji No.2 Medical Community, and realizes the full coverage of grass-roots traditional Chinese medicine services. Combined with the experience sharing of grass-roots famous Chinese medicine practitioners and the construction of curative effect evaluation system, it can realize "local experience and local use" at low cost, so that high-quality traditional Chinese medicine resources can sink to the grass-roots level.

At the same time, the construction of the medical community platform has promoted the formation of regional Chinese medicine big data, and realized the interconnection and comprehensive supervision of the Chinese medicine service data of the three major medical communities in the county and the Women’s Insurance Institute. Through these data, the regulatory authorities can not only control medical institutions more effectively, but also set up specialist training plans according to local conditions, introduce expert experience, and promote the scientific research progress of traditional Chinese medicine.

Tonglu, Zhejiang Province: Building a traceability platform for the whole process of Chinese medicine services

Tongjun traditional Chinese medicine culture in Tonglu county was included in the fifth batch of national intangible cultural heritage projects. In order to promote the digital reform of traditional Chinese medicine, innovate the service mode of traditional Chinese medicine, and improve the service ability and supervision ability of traditional Chinese medicine, Tonglu has built a "1+7+2" whole-process traceability management system, which realizes the traceability supervision of the whole process of traditional Chinese medicine planting from the source to the end people, and empowers the development of local traditional Chinese medicine planting industry.

The achievements of the construction of the intelligent medical community of traditional Chinese medicine of Bao Science and Technology have spread all over the country, and the model is very flexible according to local conditions. Some of them combine and make use of local advantages, break the existing pattern, and solve service problems through medical integration; Some are integrated development. Under the unified coordination, the department in charge of business takes the lead, and the Chinese medicine hospital is responsible for a unified guidance and guidance of the Chinese medicine business in the whole region.

After watching Bezos’s AI layoffs, 996 may really be a blessing for workers.

Musk said, "The ultimate goal of capitalism is to’ capitalize’ everything in the world." Of course, including people, turning people into a part of capital.

Strictly speaking, "human capital" is an immoral word. People create capital, but capitalists want to turn people into their own capital and means of production.

It’s not a fantasy, but it’s true that Amazon on the other side of the ocean happened.

Amazon has developed an artificial intelligence system, which can monitor the working status of every employee.

For example, a sorter, how many couriers did he sort in an hour? Amazon’s regulation is 120 pieces. If the indicator is not met, the artificial intelligence system generates a report and automatically dismisses "lazy" employees.

According to statistics, there is a cargo hold with 2,500 people who automatically expelled 300 "bastards" within one year after running this artificial intelligence system, which is highly efficient.

The dismissed employee went to court to sue Amazon. As a result, Amazon presented the detailed data to the judge, accurate to the employee’s hourly workload, and successfully convinced the judge that the employee was indeed a "bastard" and was not wronged.

Under the monitoring of artificial intelligence, Amazon’s sorting efficiency has increased by 15% and its salary expenditure has decreased by 10%.

The development of artificial intelligence is a double-edged sword. Some people use it to develop medical robots and save lives. Some people use it to develop supervisors and turn people into machines.

Let’s talk about why capitalists couldn’t monitor the working status of every employee before the artificial intelligence system appeared.

This involves an economic concept-the boundary of the company. Company is the core of modern capitalism. If we leave the organized company, we will return to the handicraft workshops in feudal times, which can’t meet the needs of mass production.

Stimulated by profits, the company will continue to expand its scale, expand its production and occupy a larger market with more commodities.

The expansion of the company’s scale has brought a management problem: how to ensure that tens of thousands of employees don’t "fish"?

The simplest way is to hire a supervisor and employ people to monitor people. But this brings two contradictions: First, supervisors are also employees, and they also get paid. For a factory with 20,000 employees, at least 4,000 supervisors need to be employed to ensure that there is no blind spot for monitoring.

There may be only 2,000 employees fishing, but it’s uneconomical to pay 4,000 supervisors more. Second, supervisors are human beings, they have feelings, and they will selectively monitor.

People with good relationships cut them some slack, while those with bad relationships face death. Good employees may be forced away, while bad employees are sheltered.

Therefore, no factory would choose to employ a large number of supervisors, but invented the KPI system to measure the workload of an employee. There is no need to repeat how inefficient the KPI system is. Most companies’ KPI systems are just digital games, and it is easy to cheat.

It is precisely because of various restrictions in the operation of factories that economists agree that companies have boundaries and cannot expand indefinitely. The bigger you are, the more bastards you can’t monitor, and the less efficient your company will be. This is the root of "big company disease".

The emergence of artificial intelligence has completely solved the "big company disease". First of all, artificial intelligence doesn’t need salary. It only needs to pay one-time research and development expenses in the early stage and low maintenance expenses in the later stage to monitor everyone.

Secondly, artificial intelligence has no feelings, it is very fair, and will just find out every bastard hidden in the corner of the company. Finally, artificial intelligence doesn’t need rest, it can work 24 hours a day, leaving no gaps.

With Amazon’s intelligent supervisor, the boundaries of the company will cease to exist, and a number of world-class monopoly companies may appear.

It’s hard to tell whether it’s good or bad.

On the bright side, there are indeed "slackers" in every big company who just take money and do nothing. Their laziness is unfair to diligent employees. Clearing the "bastards" out of the company is conducive to creating a fairer working environment.

On the bad side, employees are likely to become robots, exposed to the monitoring of artificial intelligence all the time and forced to work all the time. It’s like the scene in Chaplin’s movie "Modern Times": workers subconsciously screw when they eat.

If this artificial intelligence system is extended to life, the consequences can be imagined.

How to digitalize the supply chain and meet the market demand?

Dr. Hendrik Witt, Chief Product Officer of TeamViewer

Affected by the epidemic situation and geopolitical challenges, all walks of life have set off an upsurge of digital development, and the manufacturing industry is no exception. According to PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC), British manufacturers are facing the worst shortage of workers since 1989, and efficiency has become more important to the current manufacturing industry than ever before. In order to meet the supply demand, digital transformation has become the top priority of British manufacturers. However, the opportunity of supply chain digitalization has just sprouted.

Face the supply chain problem directly

Although labor shortage has had many impacts on manufacturers, there is still a lot of work to be done to solve this problem. Manufacturers must first know something about digitalization and understand the potential it can bring to the industry. In 2021, the research committee of German Business Daily and TeamViewer found that only 33% of logistics companies in Europe have formulated digital transformation strategies. Even more surprising, according to TeamViewer’s research data this year, only 45% of manufacturing and logistics workers think that their industry will be closely linked with digital communication technology and collaboration software.

Enterprises need to make digital investment in the whole supply chain to make it more flexible and flexible to cope with the dynamic and changing global economy. Front-line workers should get the support of digital technology and complete the corresponding work to meet the supply demand. If the right solutions are not deployed, enterprises are likely to fall behind because they fail to give full play to their digital potential. What else can we do to realize the digitalization of the front line?

Smart glasses, smart work

Workers in manufacturing and logistics industries can wear smart glasses to improve their daily work performance in the workshop. The working principle of smart glasses is to use augmented reality (AR) technology to directly project instructions into workers’ vision, just like heads-up displays in cars, to assist front-line workers to work efficiently and safely. Smart glasses can also automatically record work steps, free workers’ hands and improve their ability and productivity.

In addition, smart glasses can also be applied to the food industry, through artificial intelligence technology, using image recognition to verify the quality of goods. In this process, the software running on the smart glasses will compare the actual state and the target state of the products produced, so as to improve the accuracy of workers and optimize the product quality of customers.

Another important application of smart glasses in the food industry is to support the maintenance of health and safety standards. The glasses can check whether employees are wearing mandatory sanitary gloves and help improve the safety of food and workplace.

Smart glasses can improve the work performance of front-line workers, improve their ability, efficiency and work accuracy to meet the supply chain needs of enterprises.

Deploy artificial intelligence

The purpose of deploying artificial intelligence for front-line workers is to improve the daily working life and routine working procedures of workers in manufacturing and logistics industries. By deploying artificial intelligence in the workshop, the working accuracy and efficiency of the workers in manufacturing and logistics industries will be improved.

There are many advantages to deploying artificial intelligence, such as automation and quality control. Artificial intelligence can automatically alert workers to problems in the workplace, such as the whereabouts of goods in the warehouse. It can also check and confirm the working steps, thus optimizing the quality control in the process and greatly improving the working accuracy.

Therefore, deploying artificial intelligence in the front line can not only improve business efficiency, but also improve employee satisfaction and maintain health and safety standards. All these are important factors to retain employees, and this is the great challenge faced by enterprises in this industry.

Empowering the future-oriented supply chain with Industry 4.0

By combining artificial intelligence with wearable technology to create "enhanced intelligence", enterprises can give full play to the potential of their supply chain, and more importantly, their front-line employees. As we all know, enhancing intelligence will change our business situation. In the future, with the advancement of Industry 4.0, enterprises around the world will soon use it in different scenarios. Enterprises need to ensure that they can keep pace with new technologies such as wearable devices, so as to guarantee future production lines, alleviate labor shortage and lead the industry into a new digital era.
