Alibaba Cloud Launches ET Agricultural Brain at the Shanghai Computing Conference

Posted by fidest press agency su venerdì, 8 giugno 2018

Alibaba Cloud, the cloud computing arm of Alibaba Group, launched its proprietary ET Agricultural Brain at The Computing Conference 2018: Shanghai Summit today. The cutting-edge AI program has been adopted already by a number of leading pig farming and fruit and vegetable growing enterprises in China, and is set to revolutionize the agricultural industry, a strategic sector that affects the well-being of billions across the nation.ET Agricultural Brain builds upon the success of Alibaba Cloud’s self-developed AI technology that has been applied in the smart city, transportation, industrial and aviation sectors, and extends its application to agriculture.
By applying AI technologies such as visual recognition, voice recognition and real-time environmental parameter monitoring, ET Agricultural Brain monitors each hog’s daily activity, growth indicators, pregnancy and other health conditions, bringing more insight throughout the pig farming industry chain. By processing data and training algorithm models based on machine learning technology, ET Agricultural Brain allows farm managers to monitor the farm and the animals in real time. For example, the system will automatically prescribe a plan of activity for hogs that need to improve the health and yield of hogs. The program will also be able to detect sick hogs and minimize accidents, such as protecting piglets from accidents through the introduction of voice recognition technology. Multiple meters are installed to collect data in order to optimize the environment for the herd to grow, as well as reducing human errors in the farming process.It is estimated that ET Agricultural Brain could increase a sow’s annual production by three more newborns, while reducing unnatural death by 3%. Pigs per sow per year (PSY), an important efficiency indicator for the industry, is estimated to be increased to 32, boosting China’s industry efficiency to be on a par with that of the most advanced pig farming countries. In addition to Tequ Group, early adopters of ET Agricultural Brain include Haisheng Group, the leading agriculture company that operates 55 orchards of more than 4000 hectares in total and Guoqiang Modern Farming, a Shaanxi-based rural cooperative that produces high quality melons. The AI program has enhanced fruit and vegetable planting for these two producers. For Haisheng, the growth parameters of about 10,000 acres of apple trees are converged to the ET Agriculture Brain automatically, saving an estimated RMB20 million in operating costs annually for the farm. By better connecting the government, enterprises and farmers, Alibaba Cloud also helps farmers sell their fruit and vegetables more effectively, in order to increase their income.The Computing Conference 2018: Shanghai Summit is a two-day event that gathers participants in the Alibaba Cloud ecosystem and industry practitioners from around the world to discuss the latest trends in frontier technologies, including Cloud Computing, Big Data, and AI.

Alibaba to acquire South China Morning Post

Posted by fidest press agency su martedì, 15 dicembre 2015

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Kamel Mellahi, a Professor of Strategic Management at who has extensively researched business in China, has made the the following statement:”There are a lot of complementarities between SCMP and Alibaba’s resources and capabilities. Beside its deep pockets and well-known brand, Alibaba can use its internet platform to boost web traffic to the SCMP website and increase its presence in the digital space.”The takeover will likely bring SCMP to the digital age by leveraging Alibaba’s expertise and knowledge of the internet. Plus, one could see Alibaba boosting the readership and reach of SCMP by bundling access to the paper with a purchase of one of its various services. The bundling strategy can help boost the SCMP’s reach and revenue with little cost for Alibaba.”Concerns about the future editorial independence of SCMP are legitimate. For sure, the editorial independence of SCMP is going to be tested. It will be interesting to see if the paper is going to carry on running articles that are critical of the Chinese government or offend powerful political or business actors. I think a lot of observers would be surprised if the SCMP does not take on a more pro-China stance in the future.”
