According to him上海千花坊as millions of different reac

tions to a source of inspiration just like a person. When users type a word, Xiaoice could draw vastly diverging pictures in response to that word.

上海千花坊”We don’t know what surprises Xiaoice will bring us, and the unpredictability is the charm that attracts us,” Xu said.

This is not the first time that Xiaoice has created something. Started

as a chatting robot in 2014, Xiaoice has already been “talking” with more than 100 million上海千花坊女神会所

users, published two collections of poetry and released and composed dozens of songs.

上海千花坊All these endeavors have helped accumulate more than 5 million followers on a Ch

inese micro blog, as Microsoft continues to experiment with how AI can use emotional intelligence to se

rve as a companion for people and how AI can be used to imbue machines with “creativity”.上海千花坊

Elsewhere in the world, researchers and industry participants are

also experimenting with AI. In 2017, US singer Taryn Southern unveiled Breaking F

上海千花坊ree, a song composed and produced by an AI system developed by US startup Amper Music.

Last year, an AI-generated painting of Edmond Belamy became the firs

t of its kind to be auctioned at Christie’s. The artwork, created by computer algorithms de上海千花坊女神会所

上海千花坊veloped by French AI company Obvious, was sold for more than $430,000.

Just like Xiaoice’s paintings, such AI-generated work is based on

machine-learning models of artificial neural networks that resemble the human brain and ne上海千花坊

rvous system, which can study input materials and produce output in their own right.

上海千花坊女神会所When it comes to AI painting, a neural network that goes by the acronym GAN plays a ke

y role. GAN, which stands for generative adversarial network, creates the image pixel

by pixel. Like any other artist or designer, it produces both broad strokes and fine details in layers.上海千花坊女神会所

But as pioneering AI-generated works appear around the world, the tech companies and art critics are also addressing the fundamental question of

上海千花坊whether the images, poems or songs produced by their networks can be called art at all.

Qiu Zhijie, an artist and professor at China’s Central Academy of Fine Arts, said the answ

er depends on how originality in art is defined when machines are involved in creation.上海千花坊女神会所

“When nobody can tell the difference between paintings genera

ted by AI and those of humans, then we can regard AI’s work as original,” Qiu said.上海千花坊

Apparently, Xiaoice has already passed the test. In May, works produced by the drawing bot under the name Xiao Yubing were

上海千花坊女神会所submitted to the exhibition of postgraduates’ work at China’s Central Academy of Fine Arts. When Xiao Yubing

‘s paintings were presented beside those of humans, nobody realized they were generated by AI.

Regulations requiring Shanghai households and enterprises to sort their trash will create opportunities in circular economy

Trash sorting was a hot topic in Shanghai in the weeks before a new municipal regul上海千花坊

Though the regulation inconveniences people while th

Soybeans grown here i上海夜生活are high-quality and sell

 well, and most of those I harvest go to big food processing factories nearby,” he sa

上海夜生活id. “I can sell the soybeans for about 4 yuan a kilogram, compared with 3.6 yuan last year.”

Although Sun wanted to rent more land from farmers in nearby villages to expand his soybean上海夜生活

harvest this year, many of them were unwilling to do so, or had increased their rents, so Sun said he gave up.

上海夜生活品茶微信In Hailun, a national pilot area for high-efficiency production of green and high-quality soybeans, m

ore than 133,000 hectares of farmland have been planted with the crop since 2000, according to Yang

Dayong, director of the Green Food Development Office, which is responsible to the city’s agricultural and rural affairs bureau.

With higher profits from soybean farming and policies to encourage the growth of such crops adopted by the local govern上海夜生活

ment, the amount of land used for soybean planting in the city is expected to rise to 193,000 hectares this year, a year-on-ye

上海夜生活品茶微信ar expansion of 45 percent, accounting for more than half the farmland in Hailun.

The city will also try to take more measures to help farmers to improve soybean

productivity and quality, including introducing superior species and promoting new fertilizing techn上海夜生活

ologies to enable the crop to play a more important role in the local economy, Yang said.

上海夜生活品茶微信Soybean planting has increased nationwide this year, following a na

tional plan proposed by the central government to rejuvenate production of the crop.上海夜生活

The total area of farmland planted with soybeans this year may exceed 8.6 millio

n hectares, a year-on-year rise of more than 667,000 hectares, which would be the fourth consecutive year of gro

上海夜生活wth, according to Pan Wenbo, planting administration head at the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs.

This year, the central government has provided more support to enco

urage soybean planting, including continuing to provide subsidies to farmers in the north上海夜生活品茶微信

east, a major production area for the crop, promoting rotation farming of corn and

上海夜生活soybeans, and increasing financial support for major soybean production counties, Pan said.

According to a plan released by the ministry earlier

this year to increase domestic soybean production, authorities will introduce more policies to e上海夜生活

ncourage planting of the crop. The policies will include increasing subsidies to farm

ers and developing new soybean species over the next few years to raise domestic production.

上海夜生活品茶微信According to the plan, the amount of land used for growing soybeans is expected to rise to 9.3 million hectares by the end of next y

ear and to 10 million hectares by 2022, with per-hectare production and quality also being boosted.

With consumption of soybeans in recent years increasing for their protein and ed

ible oil, the gap between supply and demand has been widening, resulting in China re上海夜生活品茶微信

lying on imports, with more than 80 percent of such produce coming from countries such as Brazil and the United States.

In comparison, China is almost self-sufficient in rice, wheat and corn – the nation’s

three major crops – with domestic production meeting more than 98 percent of total demand.

Last year, China’s soybean imports reached 88 million metric ton

s, more than twice the level in 2009, but a decline of about 8 percent compared with the previo

us year – the first fall since 2011 – due to outbreaks of African swine fever. This led to declining demand for soybean me

al, a major byproduct used for pig feed, along with a slump in imports from the US due to increased tariffs on soybe

ans imposed by Beijing, according to the General Administration of Customs.

Imports from Brazil exceeded 66 million tons last year, accounting for 75 percent of the total, fo

llowed by those from the US, which fell by more than 16 million tons, a drop of about 50 percent year-on-year.

Amid rising domestic production, soybean imports have continued to fall this year. A total of 31.7 million tons were impo

rted in the first five months, a year-on-year fall of 12.2 percent, according to the ministry. Imports from the US fell ye

ar-on-year by 70.6 percent in the first four months to 4.3 million tons, the ministry said.

上海419论坛unprecedentedly extensive democratic rights and freedoms in accordance with the law.

The names of six new pilot free trade zones, which have completed the approv

The accelerated launch of a new batch of pilot free trade zones shows China’s determinatio

上海419论坛Industry analysis shows the new pilot free trade zones may come from six out of eig

on; South China’s Guangxi Zhuang autonomous region; and Central China’s Hunan province.

China Securities Journal reported the above provinces and autonomous regions have all applied to build pilot free trade zones. S上海419论坛

上海419论坛品茶微信These free trade zones will most likely be located along the Yangtze River Economic Belt, the Silk Road Economic Belt,

21st Century Maritime Silk Road and around the Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei region, said Bai Ming, deputy director of the I
