“Many companies or organizations didn’t fully realize the potential of “d
ark data”, which refers to all the unknown and untapped data generated by an org
anization’s s上海后花园女神会所ystems, devices and interactions”, said Song Haiyan, senior vice-president and general manager of se
curity markets of Splunk, a US company leveraging software to search and analyze data.
“The chaos of being unable to deal with such data creates tremendous opport上海后花园
unities for motivated companies to learn, as well as for Splunk to empower them to use it,” she said.
Another challenge for companies using data is that they tend to simply collect da上海后花园女神会所
ta but do not use it to predict something that they don’t even know, she added.
In the wake of such problems, Song said Splunk has integrated some premium solutions, including artificial intell
上海后花园igence, across the platform to help companies better use “dark data”, as well as predict future outcomes.
Splunk, founded in 2003, is a Nasdaq-listed company. Its total revenues hit $425 milli上海后花园女神会所
on for its fiscal first quarter ending April 30 this year, which was a 36 percent increase year-on-year.
“I am glad to see that here in China, companies are putting the use of AI into a higher-than-ever role in their bu

This year’s China International Small and Medium Enterprises Fair, scheduled to be held in Guangdong province in October, will advance
上海后花园the comprehensive strategic partnership between China and Africa and promote the inclusive and sustainable development of SMEs in China a

Xu said at a news conference on Monday that the annual fair, known CISMEF, helps Chinese SMEs to go global and foreign SMEs to access the China market. 上海后花园品茶微信
This year’s fair adds two co-hosts: South Africa and the United Nations Industrial Development Organization, he said.
“Under the framework of the Forum on China-Africa Cooperation and the BRICS cooperation mechanism, the joint hosting 上海后花园
of the event will further promote pragmatic collaboration between China and South Africa in industry, trade and economics,” he said.
Thabo Thage, the consul general of South Africa in Shanghai, said SMEs contribute more than half of his country’s GDP.
“We expect that CISMEF will help to enhance our current trade patterns by increasing China’s sourcing of value added products from South Africa,” Thage said. 上海后花园品茶微信
Serving as a co-host of the fair for the first time, South African will select key companies to showcase the diverse nature of its economy, he added.
上海后花园品茶微信The main venue for the fair, which is due to be held on Oct 10-13, is slated to be the Poly Wo

Two other events are to be held later that month in Shunde, a manufacturing hub in the province.
The first, which will run from Oct 12 to Oct 15, will focus on intelligent manufacturing and businesses involved in the
national Internet Plus strategy aimed at promoting the integration of internet technologies with traditional industries.
The second, to be held on Oct 20-23, will focus on smart construction mater

Take the World Trade Organization. Xiong said it is in unpreceden

eptions and unilateral measures are abused, and negotiations on some agendas progress slowly.
“To solve such problems, we need to improve and consolidate multilateral mechanisms a
s soon as possible,” he said. “As countries become more domestic-focused, and unilateralism as we

“Chinese culture is family-based. Everyone wants to have a group of people eating toget
her, so eating is more of a collective behavior. People either eat with family members at home or with colle
agues and clients at work,” said Cai Yani, who has directed a series of short videos about solo dining.
Eating together is considered crucial for family bonding. On a typical Chinese dining table, one rarely finds dishes for indi
viduals; instead, there is usually a range of dishes－meat, fish, vegetables and soup－for everyone to share.
Restaurants usually boast round tables with a rotatable surface, known as a “lazy Susan” in the West, to make sharing easier.
The move away from the traditional sharing approach is largely due to a demo
graphic shift in the country, especially a sharp rise in the number of unmarried people. Statistics from the Mi
nistry of Civil Affairs show that more than 200 million people were living on their own in 2017.
