People’s tastes are more highly developed,” Jiang says

 “We just want to give people the same feeling watching them on digital devices today as they had on small TV screens years ago.”

More than 300 TV series have been restored since November, and Pei says all their da

ta has gradually helped to build up a database, which will further improve the algorithms.

In March, the restored edition of 2003’s Legend of the Dragonslayer Sword was released online through Youku. Unexpected

ly, it soon climbed into the top 10 list of most-viewed drama series on the platform, with all the others being new productions.

Jiang points out that many adaptations of old classics are now being made following the rise of online streaming media platforms.

“But they are often heavily criticized,” he says. “I don’t know whether it is because the performances are so poor. However, if we c

an make the original productions look just like new ones through restoration, people can at least have more choice.”

China’s innovation and entrepreneurship activities ha

s have accelerated since 2015 as the government sees them as drivers for the economy’s transition.

As a result, a number of supportive policies have been issue

d to support maker spaces, incubators and companies to speed up innovation.

Roee says that the Chinese innovation and entrepreneurship market has “mind-blowing speed and scale”, which, despite short-

term fluctuations, has a growth trajectory from a long-term perspective and might grow more than tenfold in the next decade.

“Chinese enterprises have advanced consumer-oriented thinking and strong manuf

acturing capabilities, and China’s speed of getting from an idea to a product is unparalleled,” he says.

Dylan Huang, who oversees WeWork Labs’ Greater China operations, says the demand a

mong Chinese startups for all-round support is strong, and the platform will leverage its global re

ources to facilitate exchanges between Chinese partners and their overseas counterparts.

Every year, about 5,000 people with potentially deadly head and neck cancer come to S

un Yat-sen University Cancer Center, the world’s busiest medical facility treating the disease.

Ma Jun, a specialist in nasopharyngeal cancer who has worked at the

hospital in Guangdong province for 34 years, says every patient has a heart-wrenching story.

Ma described the early radiation as carpet bombing, sayin

g it causes collateral damage in the area around the tumor. A “satellite map” is needed for a precision strike, he said.

Ma and his team put forward an individualized irradiation range and dose standard for radi

otherapy. The result is a clear picture showing high – and low-risk areas, which then allows dose stratification.

In 2014, an atlas of organs at risk in nasopharyngeal cancer patients was published in

Radiotherapy and Oncology. It suggested tailoring both radiation doses and targets, and setting a reco

mmended safety dose for protecting 33 normal organs around the nasopharynx.

Today, the five-year overall survival rate for patients exceeds 80 percent at Sun Yat-sen Uni

versity Cancer Center, while the rate of severe side effects from radiotherapy has dropped by 24 percent.

Ma, who has won China’s National Science and Technology Award twice with his team, is grateful to more than 10,000

patients who have participated in his research, saying their courage is behind the progress in the treatment.

Experts believe these policies were set to introduce tal

lents, instead of regulating the property market. The aim is to attract skilled residents to optimize the demographic mix and boost

the economy, said Yan Yuejin, director of the Shanghai-based E-house China Research and Development Institution.

While these measures could actually stimulate the property market, real estate speculation should be avoided, Yan said.

Up till now, more than 60 cities have introduced talent introduction

and settlement policies, according to data from Centaline Property Research Cente
