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

Legislative Council President Andrew Leung Kwan-yuen said many people from Hong Kong were saddened by the scenes of violence.
上海会所Leung, after inspecting the aftermath of the vandalism, said the council will cancel its remain
ing meetings before its summer recess in mid-July because of the time needed to repair the extensive damage.
The damage may cost taxpayers HK$50 million to HK$60 million ($6.4 million to $7.7 million) to re
上海会所品茶微信pair, according to estimates of the council’s Finance Committee chairman, Chan Kin-por.
In the wake of the violence, barrister and lawmaker Martin Liao Cheung-kong, together with some、
20 lawmakers, accused the opposition camp of ignoring the acts of the violent protesters and blaming the SAR government instead.
Maggie Chan Man-ki, a Hong Kong deputy to the National People’s Congress, accused the上海会所品茶微信
opposition of continuing to condone and encourage the violent behavior, which sends the wrong message to society.
Richard Cullen, an Australian visiting law professor at the University of Hong Kong, said: “This sort
of behavior leaves a stain on Hong Kong’s rule-of-law reputation. It is plainly not compatible with the rule of law.”
Meeting with the media in the early hours of Tuesday, Chief Executive of
the Hong Kong SAR Carrie Lam Cheng Yuet-ngor strongly condemned the extreme use of violence and vandalism
to take the delayed effect of balance sheet reduction conducted earlier into its consideration of rate cuts. The current phase-out of balanc
上海会所e sheet reduction already has some easing effect, and only after the balance sheet reduction ends in September, can its impact become clearer.
By incorporating that impact into consideration, the Fed can draw up a better rate cut plan that maximizes effects of the policy mix.上海会所
Thirdly, the market may have overestimated how much the Fed will cut the rates. There may be no more than three rate cuts by the end of 2020.
St. Louis Fed President James Bullard – the major advocate of this
round of rate cut – has suggested the use of the modern-day Taylor rule, which fairly well explains th上海会所
e Fed’s interest rate decisions. Even based on this model adopted by dovish Fed officials, we found that the degree of rate cuts may be weaker than m
上海会所arket expectation for quite some time going forward: at most one cut by the end of this year and likely two or three cuts by the end of 2020.
By contrast, before the June FOMC meeting, the market expected a higher-than-85-percent chance of more than one rate cut by the
end of this year as well as an about 60-percent chance of more than three cuts by the end of 2020, according to Bloomberg data.上海会所品茶微信
In conclusion, we think as economic downside pressure gradually emerges, the Fed will have to kick off the rate cut cycle. But the rate cut si上海会所品茶微信
gnal, timing and degree may not measure up to the market expectation. Therefore, two future developments appear possible:
First, investor sentiment can reverse drastically if the Fed’s action fails to meet market expec上海会所品茶微信
tation. Considering the market has fully priced in the unrealistic expectation of rate cuts sinc
e early June, any reversal of expectation can lead to short-term fluctuations of key price signals such as the US Treasury yield cu
rve, the US Dollar Index, and the gold price, which may pose extensive spillover shocks to asset portfolios.
Second, the long-term trend of rate cuts will continue even if the market expectation reverses. In the long
run, the Fed is expected to proceed with rate cuts in a fairly slow and smooth way. This will enlarge the monetary policy room of ot
her major economies and expedite the shift toward an easing global monetary environment, which may in turn lift the sen
timent of global stock markets and ease any currency risk of emerging markets gradually.
