Wearable devices that monitor a user’s heartbeat and other metrics can share data with the software, which then uses artificial intelligence to assess users’ performance and recommend different workout routines.

“The device can record your fitness data in a real-time video image in the system, and then give you a comprehensive evaluation of the fitness effect after the data is processed through the cloud computing and edge computing in the artificial intelligence platform we built.

Though traditional Chinese medicine can trace its roots back thousands of years, it’s still getting a technical upgrade with another system on display at the fair.

By compiling data on various medicinal components, mixtures and preparations that used to be the domain of practitioners of traditional medicine, end users of the software can better know which remedies they are taking.
