On March 6, the Golden Roundtable seminar of “The Fight Against Epidemic - Intelligent Power of Information and Communication Industry” hosted by people.cn was held online. Dr. Ouyang Ye,  Chief Technology Officer and Vice President of AsiaInfo (stock code: 01675.HK), was invited to attend the seminar. Ouyang Ye said that in the face of outbreak of the epidemic, AsiaInfo cooperated with the three major operators to leverage its capabilities in communication big data and artificial intelligence to provide powerful help and means in the epidemic prevention and control.

Ouyang Ye introduced that AsiaInfo divided the overall epidemic control into five stages: epidemic perception, epidemic awareness, epidemic prediction, anti-epidemic command, epidemic prevention and resumption of work. Based on these five stages, AsiaInfo has made full use of its basic capabilities in big data and communication artificial intelligence to quickly create 16 products.


For epidemic perception, AsiaInfo promptly launched a monitoring system for key areas, a monitoring system for automatic detection of outsiders, a 3D reality monitoring system for sensitive areas, and an outbound automated information collection system. For epidemic awareness, a macro information system of epidemic, a traceability system for high-risk populations, and an early warning system for epidemic infection risk were launched. For epidemic prediction, an epidemic trend awareness system and an assessment system of epidemic infection risk were developed and launched to provide decision-making basis for government departments.

Furthermore, Dr. Ouyang also introduced that AsiaInfo has also developed a global epidemic prevention command module, a nationwide notification of epidemic information, a judgment system for whether observing the regulations on epidemic, and a system for rapid distribution of epidemic materials in order to fully assist governments and enterprises in the anti-epidemic command.
