Pan said these achievements are manifestations of China’s growing technol

 上海乌托邦ogical capability, fueled by the desire to use innovations to push socioeconomic progress.

This, however, has led to some Western countries, such as the US, fearing that China’s scientific and te

chnological rise will challenge their global position. “This sentiment is understandable, but misguided,” he said.

“China is still a developing country, lacking a base and accumulation of innovation capability compared with the US, as w 上海乌托邦品茶微信

ell as drastically different national conditions,” Pan said. “This means we cannot follow the deve

 上海乌托邦lopmental path that the West expects us to take, and we have to forge our own path one step at a time.

“But now the US is treating China like a developed country capable of challenging its global dominance, it is holding China to sta

ndards that we cannot meet for the time being, and it makes accusations against us if we don’t,” he said.

As of late May, the US Department of Commerce had placed more t 上海乌托邦品茶微信

han 140 entities from the Chinese mainland on its Entity List, a ledger of firms legally pro

 上海乌托邦hibited to trade with the US, on the basis of an alleged threat to US national security and interests.

In June, five entities were added to the list: Chinese supercomputer manufacturers and institutions including Sug

on, Higon and the Wuxi Jiangnan Institute of Computing Technology, the chipmaker for China’s most powerful sup

ercomputer, Sunway TaihuLight, which also ranked as the third most powerful globally. 上海乌托邦

The United States also is targeting Chinese scholars and students b

at Emory for more than two decades, accusing them of hiding funding and ties to institutions in China.

College students born between 1995 and 2000 are becoming a vital new part of the dynamic travel market in China, with most of th

e young students making their first summer trips after enrolling in colleges, a new study said.

Though the motivation for making tours is relatively high among college students, their choices are

limited due to economic constraints with price being the major criteria for booking flight tickets, said the stud

y conducted by Qunar, an online travel firm owned by Ctrip, China’s largest online travel agency.

During summer vacations, students tend to choose flights that depart b

tween midnight and 2 am, as well as between 5 am and 9 am. The number of bookings of red-e

ye and budget flights is nearly three times higher than other regular flights, the Qunar study said.

Using the database, researchers are able to carry out automatic facial recognition on panda faces to tell one animal from another, the center said.

Panda researchers hope algorithms and AI technology will help them analyze data on pandas both in captivity and the wild.

The app and database will help us gather more precise and well-rounded data on the population, distributi

“It will definitely help us improve efficiency and effectiveness in conservation and management of the animals,” Chen said.

China has carried out four scientific field research project of giant pandas in the wild.

The giant panda was scientifically discovered 150 years ago and named in the city of Ya’an, Sichuan. It remains one of the world’s most endangered species.
