Tsinghua University: Two Exemplary Applications in China
Speaker: Jianmin Wang, Professor In this talk, we will share the experiences of applying Cassandra with two real customers in China. In the first use case, we deployed Cassandra at Sany Group, a leading company of Machinery manufacturing, to manage the sensor data generated by construction machinery. By designing a specific schema and optimizing the write process, we successfully managed over 1.5 billion historical data records and achieved the online write throughput of 10k write operations per second with 5 servers. MapReduce is also used on Cassandra for valued-added services, e.g. operations management, machine failure prediction, and abnormal behavior mining. In the second use case, Cassandra is deployed in the China Meteorological Administration to manage the Meteorological data. We design a hybrid schema to support both slice query and time window based query efficiently. Also, we explored the optimized compaction and deletion strategy for meteorological data in this case.

Mining their heritage
"China might be the birthplace of a whole new language in car design that we're not able to predict," says Imre Molnar, dean of the College for Creative Studies (CCS) in Detroit, Michigan, a long-time launch pad for the world's top car designers. Molnar has a diverse international perspective based on his work at Patagonia, the outdoor apparel company; Hauser, Inc., the industrial design consulting firm; and director of education at Art Center College of Design's prestigious Swiss campus. "I don't have the arrogance to say how Chinese cars will look -- what their visual cues will be," Molnar explains. "However, I can say that they're mining their heritage -- their cultural heritage; their artistic heritage to determine what is their unique aesthetic language...what form language and graphics are uniquely Chinese." In addition to frequently lecturing on automotive design education issues, Molnar has consulted on strategic design management to companies that have included Volkswagen, BMW, the Ford Motor Company, Nokia and NCR. "I was speaking to some executives at Volkswagen. And they were basically saying that the Chinese customers don't want to buy a Chinese brand that looks like a European brand because they understand it's a knock-off. They want to be driving an original statement. So we will soon be seeing what Chinese designers think a Chinese car should look like."

Chinese Premier Li Keqiang Inspects Shanxi Province
Chinese Premier Li Keqiang urged efforts to speed up structural reforms and promote industrial upgrading during his two-day inspection tour of Taiyuan city, north China's Shanxi Province, which ended Tuesday. He inspected the Taiyuan Iron and Steel(Group)Co., Ltd, the world's largest stainless steel producer. The Premier said, affected by the excessive production capacity and shrinking demand, the steel industry is confronted with great difficulties. So the enterprise should currently focus on cutting production capacity, promoting upgrading and structural adjustment so as to produce more quality products and increase its productivity. During his inspection of the Guandi Coal Mine of the Xishan Coal Electricity Group Co., Ltd, Li took the tramcar down the shaft hundreds of meters deep. He talked to miners and hailed them as people who bring light to the society. He urged the enterprise to cut its production, make innovation and create new posts for surplus labor as the mining industry currently suffers from serious overcapacity and a sharp decline in coal price. The government should take various measures to create a favorable environment, helping the mining sector out of trouble, said Li. He also visited the Sanhesheng Energy-Efficient Technology Services Company in the Taiyuan branch under the Tsinghua Science Park, which has gathered more than 200 high-tech enterprises. The Premier encouraged innovators to make exploration and use their ideas to create new industries. In his inspection tour of the Xiaobeiguan shanty town in the Xinghualing District, which has been listed in the housing renovation plan this year, the Premier pledged that the government will continue the home-reconstruction progress, letting the residents in shanty towns move to the new housings as early as possible. Li visited the Taiyuan Jinshang Museum, where he encouraged enterprises to abandon conservative thinking and embark on an innovative path.

Chinese State-Owned Company in African Corruption Scandal
NucTech, a Chinese state-owned technology company, is at the center of a corruption scandal in Africa. In Namibia, authorities have arrested three people and frozen assets in connection with a bribery scheme in May 2008. It's alleged that the bribery secured a $55 million contract between NucTech and the Namibian government to supply the country's ports and airports with scanning systems. NucTech's Africa representative, Chinese national Yang Fan, as the well as the two Namibian owners of a company called Teko Trading, are accused of involvement. The Namibian government paid $12.8 million to NucTech in February, but the defendants are accused of transferring that money through Teko Trading and using it on what officials described as an enormous spending spree. Newspaper "The Namibian" also reported that $5 million was channeled through Teko Trading to political figures in Namibia. Until last year, NucTech was headed by Hu Haifeng, son of Chinese Communist Party Leader Hu Jintao. Hu Haifeng was later promoted to the position of Communist Party Secretary of Tsinghua Holdings, a company that oversees NucTech and around 30 other companies. The office of Namibia's prosecutor general, Martha Imalwa, disclosed that she had travelled to Beijing to request Mr. Hu be interviewed in connection with the case.Although Mr. Hu was labeled as a witness and not a suspect by the Namibian prosecutors, the Chinese regime has been quick to block information about his connection with the case. China's Central Propaganda Department has ordered media to keep quiet on the issue, instructing internet search engines not to show any results for a list of key words, including the name Hu Haifeng. Two of China's popular net portals, Sina and Netease, had the technology sections of their websites taken offline on Tuesday after publishing articles about the case. The Chinese version of Google is also blocking information due to quote "Local legislation and policies". Ben Hedges

Rio Tinto Moves Foreign Staff out of China
Overseas media report that Rio Tinto has asked its China-based foreign staff to leave the country. It comes after Chinese authorities arrested four Rio Tinto employees on charges of "stealing state secrets." Dow Jones and the Australian Financial Review have both cited Chinese sources to report the allegations, after Rio Tinto executive and Australian citizen Stern Hu was arrested on July 5 along with three Chinese colleagues. The Australian Financial Review says other foreign companies are also moving employees out of China until the situation becomes more certain. Rio Tinto refused to comment on the report. On Thursday, U.S. Commerce Secretary Gary Locke raised the issue with officials during climate change talks in China. He cited the need for transparency and assurances that multinational company employees will be treated fairly. Australian Foreign Minister Stephen Smith warned China to think about whether its handling of this matter will have, quote, "adverse implications for it," but says he doesn't believe relations between the two countries will be harmed.

Video Understanding: From Tags to Language
The increasing ubiquity of devices capable of capturing videos has led to an explosion in the amount of recorded video content. Instead of “eyeballing” the videos for potentially useful information, it has therefore been a pressing need to develop automatic video analysis and understanding algorithms for various applications. However, understanding videos on a large scale remains challenging: large variations and complexities, time-consuming annotations, and a wide range of involved video concepts. In light of these challenges, my research towards video understanding focuses on designing effective network architectures to learn robust video representations, learning video concepts from weak supervision and building a stronger connection between language and vision. In this talk, I will first introduce a Deep Event Network (DevNet) that can simultaneously detect pre-defined events and localize spatial-temporal key evidence. Then I will show how web crawled videos and images could be utilized for learning video concepts. Finally, I will present our recent efforts to connect visual understanding to language through attractive visual captioning and visual question segmentation.  See more on this video at https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/research/video/video-understanding-from-tags-to-language/

Texas A&M University
Texas A&M University (A&M or TAMU) is a coeducational public research university located in College Station, Texas, United States. It is the flagship institution of the Texas A&M University System, the fourth-largest university in the United States and the largest university in Texas. Texas A&M's designation as a land, sea, and space grant institution reflects a range of research with ongoing projects funded by agencies such as the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), the National Institutes of Health, the National Science Foundation, and the Office of Naval Research. The school ranks in the top 20 American research institutes in funding and has made contributions to such fields as animal cloning and petroleum engineering. The first public institution of higher education in Texas, though not the first general university in the state, the school opened on October 4, 1876 as the Agricultural and Mechanical College of Texas under the provisions of the Morrill Land-Grant Acts. Originally, the college taught no classes in agriculture, instead concentrating on classical studies, languages, literature, and applied mathematics. After four years, students could attain degrees in scientific agriculture, civil and mining engineering, and language and literature. Under the leadership of President James Earl Rudder, in the 1960s A&M desegregated, became coeducational, and dropped the requirement for participation in the Corps of Cadets. To reflect the institution's expanded roles and academic offerings, the Texas Legislature renamed the school to Texas A&M University in 1963. The letters "A&M", originally short for "Agricultural and Mechanical", are retained only as a link to the university's past. The school's students, alumni, and sports teams are known as "Aggies".

Electricity sector in China
The People's Republic of China's electric power industry has changed dramatically since the early 1990s to become the world's largest electricity consumer, passing the United States in 2011. In 2014, it generated 5583TWh, 25% more electricity than the US. In April 1996, an Electric Power Law was implemented, a major event in China's electric power industry. The law set out to promote the development of the electric power industry, to protect legal rights of investors, managers and consumers, and to regulate generation, distribution and consumption. Most of the electricity in China is produced from fossil fuels. In particular, about 79% of annual electricity was produced with coal in China between 2004-2010. China has abundant energy. The country has the world's third-largest coal reserves and massive hydroelectric resources. But there is a geographical mismatch between the location of the coal fields in the north-east and north, hydropower in the south-west, and the fast-growing industrial load centers of the east and south.

Under the dome / Sotto la cupola
Under the Dome (“Sotto la cupola”), documentario di 103 minuti autoprodotto dalla ex giornalista tv Chai Jing, denuncia il grave problema di inquinamento del Paese, con linguaggio semplice e diretto. Per tutto il filmato vediamo la presentatrice su un palco, che spiega agli spettatori gli effetti dello smog sulla salute con l’aiuto di uno schermo. Alla parte più didascalica si alternano fasi in cui Chai Jing racconta la sua esperienza personale. Da donna non particolarmente interessata all’inquinamento atmosferico, ne ha scoperto gli effetti devastanti quando ha saputo che la bimba che portava in grembo aveva un tumore (benigno). A quel punto, il suo mondo è cambiato. La figlia, una volta nata, avrebbe dovuto respirare, mangiare e bere in Cina, e in ciascuna di queste azioni vitali avrebbe introdotto sostanze nocive nel suo sistema. Con queste premesse, Chai Jing ha accusato il governo e le autorità ambientali di debolezza e incapacità di migliorare la qualità della vita dei cinesi, e le aziende di non volersi riconvertire per l’attaccamento ai profitti. http://www.quival.it/ecologia-ambiente/documentario-inquinamento-cina.html

SOUNDBITE: (English) Henk Potts, equity strategist, Barclays Stockbrokers: "Well we know the markets been under pressure under the course of the last couple of weeks, but what we've been seeing today is massive selling pressure coming through. Right across the European markets. For example the FTSE down more than 4 and a half per cent today. So a big sell off coming through. We're seeing a lot of pressure coming through in the mining sector, in the financial sector, and the retail sector as well. I think investors still remain very nervous that we could be looking not only at a significant economic slow down, but there's that dreaded word recession in investors minds as well. And I think that's what's spooking them as well. And that's why we're seeing this broadway sell off during the course of the session today." ++EXTERIOR 6. Wide exterior of Barclays building New Delhi ++INTERIOR 7. SOUNDBITE: (English) Gordon Brown, British prime minister: "The global financial turbulence that we are seeing is affecting every continent and I think its important to say that countries like India and Britain are determined to do everything in our power to maintain the stability of our economies and we believe that we've put in place the right measures, keeping inflation and interest rates as low as possible so that we can withstand what is something that has affected all global financial markets in every continent of the world." London ++EXTERIOR 8. Mid of Canary Wharf building 9. Wide of Canary Wharf building with other buildings STORYLINE: UK and Indian stock markets plunged on Monday following declines on Wall Street last week amid investor pessimism over the US President George W. Bush's stimulus plan to prevent a recession. At one point the market was down five per cent on the day. European stocks plummeted in a global market rout on concerns the US might be headed for recession, with analysts saying investors are now faced with the prospect of a bear market and should be braced for more downside. The Dow Jones Stoxx 600 Index plunged 5.7% to 308.83. It now stands about 18% down on the beginning of 2008 and about 30% off its bull market high of 400.99, struck on July 13, 2007. A 20% pullback from a market peak is a common definition of a bear market. In terms of national markets, the UK's FTSE 100 slumped 5.5% to 5578.20, while Germany's DAX Index plunged 7.2% to 6790.19. France's CAC-40 Index fell 6.8% to 4744.15. The drops followed losses in Asian markets and were continued in Canada and Brazil; US markets were closed for the holiday commemorating civil rights leader Martin Luther King. Markets have been facing mounting pressures from signals that the recent credit crisis could send the US the world's biggest economy, into recession. Henk Potts of Barclays Stockbrokers said that "massive" amounts of selling had been taking place.
