led with a few of her friends to Japan in January. Despite living in Beijing, she bought return flight ticke

ts that departed from the nearby city Tianjin to Japan, and the return tickets cost less than 1,500 yuan in total.

“It’s a great deal as I can save more money for shopping in Japan. It’s convenient to take a high-speed train fr

om Beijing to Tianjin, which only took half an hour, and then I caught a taxi to go to Tianjin airport,” she said.

The case was made public after the father of one of the infa

ants said in a social media post that at least three babies had died at Shunde Hospital. He

cited a suspected cross-infection in the hospital‘s neonatal intensive care unit in March and April.

According to the post, his child was born on April 6 and was infected between April 7 and 10.

l’s lax management, inadequate infection control regulations and enforcement, inade

quate infection monitoring in the infant ward and failure to report infections as required.

Uber was the biggest of a group of Silicon Valley startups that have spent ye

now looking to follow with their own IPO. Some, like Uber and Lyft, are unprofitable.

AI algorithms also give the images a much higher defin

Nevertheless, while the team once thought that AI offered all th

e solutions, a new question soon arose. Audience members asked: “Where’s the original flavor?”

After restoring the images to their original state, they soon began to realize that people still needed some nostalgia. For examp

le, old series made by Hong Kong-based company TVB usually have yellowing images, but many viewers co

mplained that its retro ambience had vanished after the color cast was corrected, Jiang says.

“People then said our restored version looked like a camera filter has been ad

ded,” Pei says with a bitter smile. “We then had to go back and adapt our methods.”

More complicated algorithms were later developed to carry out a tailored plan for each type of ser

ies, including those by TVB, Chinese mainland productions from the 1980s and Taiwan productions of the 199

0s. Some techniques in hands-on restorations were introduced later too, as Pei confesses even the best AI cannot handle every case.

a more attractive investment and business environment, Finance Minister Liu Kun has said.

Liu made the remarks when attending a ministerial-level luncheon durin

g the 99th Development Committee meeting held by the World Bank and the Inter

national Monetary Fund on April 12 and 13 in Washington, D.C., according to China’s Ministry of Finance.

Vice-Finance Minister Zou Jiayi attended a ministerial-level meeting and gave a speech.

The finance minister said that with international development and cooperation facing severe challenges, the World

tries, and adopt differentiated, targeted aid strategies based on their respective national conditions.
