Having trouble discerning one furry panda from another? A facial recognition app will make it easy for you.
The app is developed by the China Conservation and Research Center for Giant Pandas
along with researchers in Singapore Nanyang Technological university and Sichuan Normal University.
The image analysis research kicked off in 2017. A database now contains about 120,000 images and 10,000 video clips of giant pandas.
Close to 10,000 panda pictures have been analyzed, marked and annotated.
Using the database, researchers are able to carry out automa
tic facial recognition on panda faces to tell one animal from another, the center said.
hina plans to promote the applications of digital technologies in rural areas to boost local development.
As a step towards rural modernization and transformation, digital rural development plays a
crucial role in rural revitalization and building a digital China, according to the guideline jointly issue

But Tianma, part of EAVN, together with telescopes in the Republic of Korea and Japan, h

“EHT could capture the image without assistance of the network but the supporting observations provided supplement
al information and showed consistency with the EHT observations to better verify their accuracy,” Shen said.
“The job of the network was included in one of the six papers about the res
