China's anti-virus high-tech products may become forefront of future industrial dev., experts

March 05, 2020


Abstract : Experts believe that the cutting-edge high-tech products used in China's fight against the novel coronavirus pneumonia outbreak may become the industrial forefront in the future.

BEIJING, March 5 (Xinhua) -- Experts believe that the cutting-edge high-tech products used in China's fight against the novel coronavirus pneumonia outbreak may become the industrial forefront in the future.

The extensive application of new-generation information technology amid the epidemic and the quickened popularity of new digital business, modes and applications will promote China's industrial digital transformation, and some technology and products may even become the forefront of future development, according to experts from the Institutes of Science and Development with the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS).

It's reported that a batch of high-tech products have been used in fields like medical diagnosis, epidemic prevention and control as well as work and production resumption since the epidemic outbreak, including smart robots, contactless multifunctional self-service terminals, image-assisted diagnostic systems, intelligent temperature measurement system, contactless temperature measurement and security check integrated machine, etc.

The application of artificial intelligence (AI) technology in diagnosis has helped save the time for doctors in reading medical images and provide more accurate diagnostic references, said Yin Baocai, director of medical imaging research with a research institute of iFLYTEK Co., Ltd. (002230.SZ), an artificial intelligence-focused tech giant in China.

Yin believes that AI-assisted diagnostic systems are bound to be applied to richer and richer scenarios.

The chip industry has provided indispensable technical support for epidemic surveillance and protection, testing and medical treatment amid the epidemic, noted Wang Shouyang, director of the Research Center for Predictive Science of CAS.

The use of high-tech chips in infrared temperature sensor, virus sample detection, smart medical platform and other fields has provided a broader market space for the development of the chip industry, said Wang.

Multiple insiders even believe that the high-tech products emerging in the battle against the epidemic may become important part of the daily management and operation of smart cities.

"For instance, by relying on AI technology and 5G network, after the epidemic is over, the large-scale intelligent crowd temperature measurement system can also be used in railway stations, shopping malls and other places in a normal way, and by carrying modules such as portrait recognition, they can become part of the management of smart cities," said Gou Huachao, an executive of the development firm of the intelligent temperature measurement system.

However, experts also admit that there is still room for improvement in the application of high-tech products. (Edited by Gu Shanshan, gushanshan.1987@163.com)
