Comments Off on This facial recognition app tells one panda from another
Having trouble discerning one furry panda from another? A facial recognition app will make it easy for you.
The app is developed by the China Conservation and Research Center for Giant Pandas
along with researchers in Singapore Nanyang Technological university and Sichuan Normal University.
The image analysis research kicked off in 2017. A database now contains about 120,000 images and 10,000 video clips of giant pandas.
Close to 10,000 panda pictures have been analyzed, marked and annotated.
Using the database, researchers are able to carry out automa
tic facial recognition on panda faces to tell one animal from another, the center said.

Comments Off on Luckin, a Starbucks rival in China, rises in US stock debut
Shares of Luckin Coffee, a fast-growing rival to Starbucks in China, rose 20 percent in their US stock market debut Friday.
The Chinese company, which opened its first store in Beijing less than two years ago, has 2,370
locations and plans to surpass the 3,700 stores Starbucks has in China by the end of the year.
It brought in $125 million in revenue last year, but spent much more than
that on coffee beans, store rent and other costs. Last year, it lost $475 million.
Most of Luckin’s stores are small, have few seats and are used mainly as a place to pick up mobile orders.
It also offers delivery in 30 minutes and promises a refund for delays or spilled drinks.

73km category final, but the referee disqualified Zheng alleging she had committed 10 fouls during the bout.
