Speakers of the roadshow approached the audience by bringing science and technology closer to life. They showcased the scientific achievement of the team, emphasizing the journey behind the development, the value of the technology and the business potential of the product. The pitches of the day included: urban traffic solution, micro-feature recognition and convenience of household life. The participants were inspired to discuss and find more possibilities for cooperation and development.
At the roadshow, Professor Xu Yong from Sino-Singapore International Joint Research Institute began by looking back to the time the institute signed an agreement to partner with the Sino-Singapore Guangzhou Knowledge City (SSGKC) Administrative Committee, the SSGKC Investment and Development Co. Ltd. and South China University of Technology (SCUT). Next, he systematically introduced the property rights trading platform based on blockchain. He did this via the different perspectives of its characteristics, structure, procedure, functions, and how blockchain benefits the bidding process as well as how it is applied to the system.
It is stated that the number of car purchasing in China is increasing by 10.99% every year and the rate is getting higher, striking cities with great traffic pressure. Xie Lanbin, Technical Director of Dongguan Limart Technology Ltd. pointed out that intelligent traffic is the way out and Smart Parking System acts as an important part of this. Beginning with the huge demand of the Smart Parking System, Xie introduced the sustainable operation model which is technologically based on IoT, Big Data and mobile payment. “The market size for parking in China is more than 500 million, which means the demand for parking is a trillion market,” said Xie. He believes Smart Parking System would have a significant and positive impact on cities, traffic and traffic environment.
Impressing the audience with his introduction of the miraculous relationship between the Milky Way Galaxy and the palm of our hand, Wang Likuan, Chief Innovation Officer & Executive Director of Melux Technology Co., Ltd. discussed the new generation’s micro-feature recognition technology. Wang exposed the disadvantages of facial recognition technology of generation 1 and generation 1.5, highlighting the small number of feature points recognized in faces and the subsequent unreliability and inefficiency, as well as the inadaptability to the changing environment. Through HOR & FVR technology, Airwave technology of Melux Technology Co., Ltd. turns the palms of humans into a unique “QR Code” and is expecting to replace 3C (Cash, Card and Cellular) in the future. This ultra-high-precision-flash-algorithm-centered technology will be widely used in different fields. It will relieve the burden of VIC Card Restoration and will improve the efficiency of government and public administration, which is an important direction for technology development.
How AI can be applied to daily life is in the spotlight and consumers spend the most on kitchen and household gadgets, as the kitchen is the place where hands needs to be freed. Shi Zhongmin, Chairman & CEO of Guangzhou Summba Information & Technology Ltd. showcased their product, the kitchen robot. They then introduced its business mode and the main functions. The core technology utilized by the robot is the world-leading semantic analysis technology, auto-abstract technology and reasoning technology based on a knowledge graph. It also uses automatic speech recognition and response under complicated environment.
Liang Hanqing, CEO of SESTO Robotics Pte Ltd. emphatically introduced Automated Guided Vehicles (AGVs) and Intelligent Mobile Robots (IMRs). SESTO Robotics’ suite of solutions are centered around the AGVs and IMRs, which are designed to automate traditionally intensive labor material-handling processes. Covering tasks such as transporting work-in-progress materials between work stations to movement of bulk materials in warehouses, SESTO AGVs and IMRs have been adopted by industry leaders in the field of semiconductor manufacturing and warehousing.
