China Xpeng P5 Sedans Challenge Tesla Autonomous Driving

China Xpeng P5 Sedans are here to challenge Tesla's autonomous driving cars with the new ADAS technology. The Advanced Driver Assistance System, or ADAS, emulates Tesla's autonomous self-driving software that is programmed to auto-navigate across city streets. On Saturday, Xpeng, a car manufacturer in Guangzhou, said that certain of its P5 sedans equipped with lidar sensors would be able to acquire city Navigation Guided Pilot (NGP) software via over-the-air upgrades and drive autonomously in urban areas. Co-founder and Chief Executive Officer of Xpeng, He Xiaopeng, stated that it is the first Chinese automotive firm to launch an ADAS for city-level driving. With the roll-out of city NGP, Xpeng P5 Sedans, the company contributes to expanding ADAS usage scenarios from covering hig...

Chinese Autonomous Robotaxis for Driverless Experience

China launched its first fully automated driving services in November 2021. So it comes as no surprise that the Yongchuan district in Chongqing has already become a regional powerhouse for autonomous driving in western China in western China. Chinese autonomous robotaxis have received approval for the commercial use of 14 autonomous driving taxis in the Western China Autonomous Driving Open Test Base of 85 square kilometers and 220 kilometers of roadways. Autonomous driving at Level 4 implies that the white Baidu Apollo Robotaxis can operate independently in most conditions without the assistance of a human driver. Like self-driving cars in science fiction movies, the experience of Robotaxis runs smoothly with no shaking or sudden braking. All day long, passengers can use smartph...

JCV’s Pay-by-Face Technology Puts SoftBank Between the US & China

This is the story of a SoftBank (TYO: 9984)-owned Japan Computer Vision Corp (JCV) thriving with its face-recognition technology powered by a blacklisted Chinese firm. JCV offers its face-recognition technology from SenseTime Group (HKG: 0020) to Mastercard (NYSE: MA) and Visa (VIE: VISA). Recently, Japan Computer Vision Corp (JCV) concluded talks on some major payments considered a potential breakthrough for SoftBank founder Masayoshi Son who had ambitions of driving new business through a partnership between his tech investments. But this expansion program is at risk because of its pay-by-face recognition technology offered to Mastercard Inc and Visa Inc. The face recognition technology from SenseTime Group, a Chinese firm, has been blacklisted by the United States over human r...

China’s Breakthrough in Green Technology got Semi-Solid Flow Battery

Based in Hefei in Anhui province, Chinese battery manufacturer Gotion High-Tech (SHE: 002074) recently announced the launch of several new products. They have launched a new battery technology, a semi-solid flow battery with a capacity density of 360Wh/kg, the JTM+ Gotion power exchange technology named Leishi. They also launched the EPLUS intelligent mobile energy storage charging pile. The new battery technology is a semi-solid flow battery that will reach 160 kWh, with a driving mileage of 1,000 km and an acceleration time of only 3.9s per 100 km. Gotion High-Tech has developed the prototype sample of NCM semi-solid-state batteries with a capacity density of 400Wh/Kg. Lithium metal anodes, silicon-based anode iteration, and pre-lithium technology will be used to further the trans...

The Citizen Lab Asks Microsoft to Mind its Chinese Bing Censorship

The Citizen Lab, published by Munk School of Global Affairs & Public Policy, University of Toronto, has released research on how Microsoft search engine Bing is censoring China-sensitive terms from its autosuggestion feature internationally. The Citizen Lab research team analyzed Bing's autosuggestion system censoring nearly 100,000 names in the United States, Canada, and China in English letters and Chinese characters. The team ran the test by modifying region, language, and IP address geolocation. After the team had communicated the findings to Microsoft, Principal Program Manager Michael Golebiewski responded. In the email, Michael mentions that his team at Microsoft could not reproduce examples after trying multiple scenarios. He explains that the "nature of autosuggestion syste...

Chinese Internet Users are in Crisis; Pay to Obfuscate IP Address

China, known for censorship and ghost-tracking Chinese Internet users, has got all Chinese social media companies to reveal user data, including IP addresses. How are users responding to the situation and how are social media platforms complying with the mandate? Well, it is known to the world that the authoritarian Chinese regime never permitted its people to freely use globally known social media platforms like Twitter, Linkedin, Facebook, Whatsapp, Instagram, etc.  To curb the exposure of Chinese Internet users to the West and its belligerent voice of innovation and protest, China came up with its own homemade jam of social media apps to appease the youth. While this strategy certainly worked for managing the unintelligible crowd, it shot crisis to the ones with a voice. It...

8 Well-Funded Stem Cell Startups are Manipulating your DNA

Using stem cells or their derivatives, stem cell startups champion the production of regenerative medicine, also known as stem cell therapy, to promote the repair response of diseased, dysfunctional, or injured tissue. Instead of using donor organs in short supply, stem cells are used for stem cell therapy. In the laboratory, researchers cultivate stem cells to manipulate them into specific cell types like those found in the heart, blood, or nerve tissue, such as heart muscle cells. The manipulated cells are then injected directly into the target muscle with the degenerative condition to usher in new cell development. With the advancement in stem cell technology, several medical researchers, doctors, and scientists have established stem cell startups making an innovative impact globall...
