CHANGSHA, April 19 (Xinhua) — In an intensive care unit (ICU) in
Changsha, the capital city of central China’s Hunan Province, a computer
is busy doing its work. However, there’s something unusual about this
usual-looking computer — it can predict the patient’s death risk.
Based on big data and artificial intelligence (AI), the Second
Xiangya Hospital of Central South University in Changsha developed a
mortality risk prediction system.
“The system can tell us the patient’s death risk one week later and
analyze the influence factors of this risk, which helps us plan
effective treatment and improve it more reasonably,” said Yu Bo, an
attending physician at the hospital.
Besides intelligent medical treatment, self-driving technology,
intelligent logistics, intelligent hydraulic engineering, other
cutting-edge tech are also gradually playing leading roles in the “smart
Changsha was the first in China to roll out a self-driving taxi
service for the public in April last year. Users can hail the taxis
using Baidu Maps in some selected areas in the city, covering
residential communities, commercial areas, and industrial parks.
Logistics, a traditional industry, is also becoming more intelligent.
Combining 5G, autonomous driving, and other high-tech, Changsha’s
Xiangjiang New Area and Sany Group will build “smart” transportation
lines on urban roads and expressways to increase transportation
efficiency and save fuel consumption.
Hunan enters the flood season in April every year. The water
conservancy department makes full use of satellite remote sensing, video
surveillance, and other technologies to build up a big data platform of
intelligent hydraulic engineering, which can prevent floods more
rapidly and precisely.
At the just-concluded opening ceremony of the 2021 Internet Yuelu
Summit, experts believed that cities with a good manufacturing
foundation like Changsha could take an intelligent “application
Hong Fangming, president of Huawei Cloud in China, said at the
ceremony that the new economy is inseparable from industrial upgrading.
The digitalization and intelligent upgrading of R&D, production, and
the supply chain would produce a vast market space. Enditem
