hina’s first box-o上海后花园女神会所 ffice decline in eight years has prompted b

rainstorming among industry insiders at an ongoing movie festival, Xu Fan reports.

China’s January-to-May box-office revenue has declined for the first time since 2011.

This cause for concern among industry insiders has become a ma

jor topic of discussion at the ongoing 22nd Shanghai International Film Festival.

Statistics from the country’s top film regulator show that China’s 64,510 screens had grosse

d 27 billion yuan ($3.9 billion) as of May 31, down 5.1 percent year-on-year, according to China Film News.

A report from box-office tracker Maoyan released during the fes

Nearly 20 hours of operating records on Monday show the systems at the power plant have been normal and stable. The facility also s

Online courses have increased public access to q上海后花园女神会所uality educational resources, b

ut unlike traditional classrooms, the teachers cannot directly monitor and interact with the

ir students when teaching online, which can lead to disengaged students and poor feedback.

To resolve these issues, three students from Tsinghua and the University of Tsukuba in Japan

have created an AI-based model that can be integrated into online teaching platforms to analyze f

acial expressions and “bullet screens”, real-time viewers’ comments on the screen.

The model then crunches the data and creates a line graph that tells the teacher exactly when and what p

arts of the lesson students find most interesting or difficult. The project won third prize at th

e 2018 International Collegiate Competition for Brain-Inspired Computing hosted by Tsinghua.

“This empowers teachers to gain objective, timely and multifaceted insights into

their students’ state of learning, which can be used to assess and improve their lessons,” said Qie Nan, an ind
