IT firms promote remote work

2020-1-31 18:35

 

China's information technology companies are promoting telecommuting and online education in the face of the novel coronavirus outbreak to ensure the normal work and study of office workers and students during the epidemic prevention and control period.

In response to the government's plan to extend the Spring Festival holiday and support telecommuting and distant education, enterprises are offering online products and services for free so the public are able to work and study at home.

Tencent Cloud, the cloud computing arm of internet giant Tencent, is offering a free video conference product to the public. Using computer software, a mini-program or a mobile app, employees can launch or join a video conference.

The company said that it is also launching other online products and services, such as a collaborative cloud platform and enterprise community, free to all employees across China.

Rokid Co Ltd, a Hangzhou-based artificial intelligence firm, just donated a batch of augmented reality glasses to the front-lines of the antivirus battle in Zhejiang.

Wearing the AR glasses, namely Rokid Glass, front-line medical staff are connected to distant medical professionals, realizing livestreaming diagnosis and treatment from a first-person perspective.

Through telemedicine and AI-assisted medical services, the glasses can make good use of remote medical resources and lower the chance of infection for medical workers. The AR glasses can also be utilized by the supervision departments to track affected patients.

Misa Zhu, chief executive officer of Rokid, said:"The company is also trying to offer the glasses to more areas, including Wuhan, Hubei province, the epicenter of the coronavirus outbreak."

Apart from telecommuting, distant education is another focus for IT companies. iTutorGroup, the smart education arm of Ping An Insurance (Group) Co Ltd, opened its online study platform for free. The platform enables students across China to learn effectively at home.

In addition, the platform helps schools digitalize lesson plans, and offer free online courses.

"The epidemic prevention and control period is a key period for Ping An to fulfill social responsibilities. The company will keep an eye on the progress of the epidemic, actively integrate and relocate multiple resources according to actual demands, and spare no efforts in offering supports in fields such as healthcare and insurance," said a statement of Ping An.

Li Yi, deputy head of the Beijing Municipal Education Commission, said distant learning breaks the limitations of time and space, lowers the possibility of infection and offers more flexibility.

 

面对新型冠状病毒的爆发,中国的信息技术公司正在推动远程办公和在线教育,以确保在疫情防控期间上班族和学生的正常工作和学习。


为了响应政府延长春节假期、支持远程办公和远程教育的计划,企业正在免费提供在线产品和服务,让公众能够在家工作和学习。


互联网巨头腾讯的云计算部门腾讯云将向公众提供免费视频会议产品。通过使用电脑软件、迷你程序或移动应用程序,员工可以启动或参加视频会议。


该公司表示,它还将推出其他在线产品和服务,比如一个协作云平台和企业社区,向中国各地的所有员工免费开放。


杭州的一家人工智能公司,Rokid有限公司,刚刚捐赠了一批增强现实眼镜给浙江杀毒前线。


戴上AR眼镜,即Rokid眼镜,一线医护人员与远处的医疗专业人员相连,实现第一人称视角的实时诊疗。


通过远程医疗和人工智能辅助医疗服务,眼镜可以充分利用远程医疗资源,降低医护人员感染的几率。AR眼镜也可以被监管部门用来跟踪受影响的患者。


Rokid首席执行官Misa Zhu表示:“该公司还试图向更多地区提供这种眼镜,包括冠状病毒爆发的中心湖北省武汉市。”


除了远程办公,远程教育是IT公司关注的另一个焦点。平安保险(集团)股份有限公司旗下的智能教育子公司益途集团免费开放了在线学习平台。该平台使中国各地的学生能够在家里有效地学习。


此外,该平台还帮助学校数字化教案,并提供免费的在线课程。


“防控期是平安履行社会责任的关键时期。平安保险在一份声明中表示:“公司将密切关注疫情的进展,根据实际需要积极整合和重新配置多种资源,并不遗余力地在医疗、保险等领域提供支持。”


北京市教委副主任李毅表示,远程学习打破了时间和空间的限制,降低了感染的可能性,提供了更多的灵活性。
