Luo also noted that inte上海会所mpanies are the new

 this endeavor. Youku started its digital restoration project in 2017, with many results. E

arlier this year, iQiyi also launched its own restoration project featuring the use of ZoomAI, a video-en上海会所

hancing solution devised by the company, to restore and remaster 50 select TV dramas.

上海会所Before the adoption of new technologies, restoration of the old works, most often in lower resolution, was done manually and it

took a day to restore a 40-minute-long episode. Now, iQiyi’s ZoomAI software, comprising algorithm modules suc

h as color enhancement, sharpening, and white balance, can restore a high resolution feature film in just one hour.上海会所

The restoration process starts with scanning the film negatives or prints into a digital pict

上海会所品茶微信ure and raw sound format. Then each frame of the scanned material undergoes an automated digital res

oration process that involves the correction of color, brightness, and contrast. The process also involves the dig

ital removal of scratches and unnecessary noises, restoration and remastering of sound, said Liu Junhui, a senior director from iQiyi.上海会所

Even with the aid of AI technologies, digital restoration of old productions is no mean fea

上海会所品茶微信t, as increasing the image resolution is one thing, but restoring its original texture is quite another, which requ

ires technologies, as well as a craftsmanship spirit. For instance, 30-plus members of the Youku digital res

toration team worked for as long as a month to fully restore the 1983 megahit, The Bund.

“Our team has made various attempts to enhance audiences’ viewing experien上海会所

ce. If only the definition is increased through transcoding, audiences may feel that the im

ages have been doctored through filters. So we went to great lengths to restore the texture that is unique to the pe

riod when the classical series was shot,” said Guo Linna, a senior visual optimization engineer from Youku. 上海会所品茶微信

Though Youku’s digital restoration team is made up of no more than 40 members who

do not work full time, every week it can restore 100-plus episodes of old TV dramas.

Speaking of her original motivation, Guo said that she chose to restore those old TV series because on the one hand, she wa

上海会所品茶微信nted the post-80s generation to have better access to recalling childhood memories, and on the other hand, she wan

ted the younger generation to gain new experience through watching these classic works.

A gilded silver wine rhyton in the form of an antelope’s head demonstrate

s the aesthetics of the Sasanian Empire (224-651), located in today’s Iran. A gilded bronze 上海会所

standing Buddha bearing strong Greek influences is believed to have originated in what is currently Kashmir.

 上海会所Six ewers from the period reflect the common influences shared acros

s the different cultures along the Silk Road, and one of them, a 50-centimeter-tall gold

ewer, represents a tasteful blend of their styles. It is believed to have been made by the Sogdian people for a c 上海会所

ustomer looking for a piece that combined Tang, Sasanian and Central Asian influences.

“When you put them side by side, you can see their shared cultural influen

 上海会所品茶微信ces, since they employ similar shapes and images,” Pritzker says. “Patterns similar to the on

es found on the ewers can be seen in some of the silk pieces on display. Some similar images can also be found in Cave 158.

“They are closely related, but this is the first time that they can be seen together,” he adds.

According to Huo Wei, an archaeology professor from Chengdu-based Sichuan Universit 上海会所

y, the rising power of the Tubo regime in the latter half of the 9th century enabled it to build up a huge n

etwork of trade routes connecting it with the rest of China, South Asia and Central Asia. 上海会所品茶微信

“The Tubo people introduced Buddhist art from the Tang regions an

d what was today’s Nepal, along with techniques in craftsmanship for making gold and silver art

 上海会所ifacts from Persia,” Huo explains. “It amassed a huge number of silk pieces through trade, despite the fact that Tubo pe

ople never learned how to make silk, probably due to the restrictions within their natural environment.

“We like to refer to it as the Silk Road on the Plateau,” he explains. “It was an indispensable part of the ancient Silk Road.” 上海会所品茶微信

Pritzker says: “Studies of Tibetan culture around the world have largely been influen

ced by the dominance of Buddhism, and it tends to overshadow other aspects. Nowadays, we are starting to

understand the importance of the cultural exchanges that went beyond religion.”

Analysts attending the symposium said more efforts ar

 needed to tight上海会所品茶微信en export controls and establish a review mechanism that keeps track of whole processes of rare earth exports.

China, the world’s largest producer of rare earths, currently produces around 80 percent of the world’s supply of the metals.

The NDRC said in late May that China is willing to continue supplying rare

earth metals to global markets, but is opposed to those who use products made with Chi

nese rare earths to “suppress and dampen China’s development”.The 19th National Congress of the Communist Party

of China in October 2017 advocated that China would be developed into a modern socialist country that is prosp

onsider China’s resolve to develop itself into a prosperous and strong country as a matter of concern.

The world’s second-largest economy maintained its fore

eign exchange reserves at $3.095 trillion at the end of April. The reserve amount was stable, altho

ugh it slightly retreated from $3.098 trillion at the end of March, according to the State Administration of Foreign Exchange.

Li Yang, director of the National Institution for Finance and Development of the Chinese Academy

of Social Sciences, said that China is unlikely to sacrifice foreign exchange reserves to de

fend its currency, even if depreciation pressure rises amid any escalation in trade tension.

In May, the offshore RMB exchange rate against the US dollar dropped more than 3 percen

t under market pressure as global investors worried about the escalation of trade friction.

Guo Shuqing, Party secretary of the People’s Bank of China, the central bank, said on Monday that higher US tariffs on Chin

a’s imports triggered financial market volatility, and this also affected the offshore RMB.
