Summer Festival Fashion If you are intending to have a holiday and plan on spending some time visiting the various attraction of the Great Ocean Road then chances are that you will be staying in Lorne for a while. Great plan! Lorne is the undisputed holiday capital of the region. There is something for everyone here. No matter what type of a holiday you have in mind you will be able to achieve it in Lorne. Never the same work out twice. I like to switch things up every time I exercise. You may do some of the same basic exercise, just tweaked each time, or opt for a completely different work out every time. Need ideas? Google has got you sport wristbands covered here! Funk fest features artists like Frankie Beverly and Maze, Gap Band, New Edition, Whodini, Big Daddy Kane, Betty Wright, Rickey Smiley, Ohio Players, SOS Band, Cameo and many others. They will keep the crowd go wild with their music and vocal powers. Off Broadway is one of the few St. Louis music venues that attracts indie rock and punk bands that are up and coming, but that aren"t completely obscure. A perfect example is the brand new psychedelic folk group Here We Go Magic, which played a beautiful set at Off Broadway a couple weeks ago. The band had stopped in St. Louis on it"s way to the festival wristbands, where they played a ton of shows that got pretty impressive reviews. And the gun slingin", whiskey guzzlin" indie rockers Murder By Death are scheduled to play at Off Broadway in May - it"s bound to be a more appropriate atmosphere than if the group performed at the Pageant to the tune of $5 Budweisers. Of course, there are goals that have to do with physical measurements (weight, body fat percentage, size), and other goals that might have to do with your performance, like running a certain time or distance. Another type of goal might be to get yourself geared up for a future event or challenge, like a 10k run, or a full or 1/2 marathon, or a triathlon, or a "Tough Mudder" event wristbands, or a long distance cycling event, or a 3-day walk, and so on. You could even schedule a vacation where you"ll be active, like climbing, or surfing, or skiing, or white water rafting, or hiking. You get the point. Right now it"s a whirlwind of excitement for me. I"m painting all the time and have ideas come to mind 24/7. This has been the longest stretch of having my artist mojo in... well forever. I hope the future brings new exhibit opportunities, increase in orders for custom work, I hope for a few sales, and I can"t wait to see what I learn. Hopefully I will be able to show on a smaller scale and maybe even put on a show myself. The Muggs take the stage at 11:30 p.m. on Saturday at Cadieux Cafe with guests The Robin Moore Band on at 10:00 p.m. But if you know the Cafe, arrive early for Detroit"s best Belgian food and plenty of beverages on tap.

Greater cooperation between universities and businesses is essential to nurture future generations of artificial intelligence talent in China, according to an expert.

In addition to accomplished AI specialists, the country also needs people capable of transforming the business model to make the development of AI sustainable, said Zheng Nanning, a member of the Chinese Academy of Engineering, in an exclusive interview with China Daily.

"The development of AI rests on two fundamental factors: big data and excellent computational capability. Those things are difficult for universities to achieve, so we have to rely on help from businesses," said Zheng, a former president of Xi"an Jiaotong University in Shaanxi province.

Companies such as search engine giant Baidu accumulate huge amounts of data through their commercial activities, which will aid academics conducting AI research, he added.

In June, Jiaotong University signed an agreement to form a strategic partnership with tech giant Microsoft, which will see trial classes launched in computer science and AI technology. "We are cooperating with Chinese businesses such as internet giants Alibaba Group and Baidu Inc, along with new companies such as Megvii Technology Inc (an internet startup that specializes in facial recognition equipment)," he said.

The collaboration features joint research and teaching programs, including course design and opportunities for students to work in advanced laboratories.

"We have to admit that businesses are far ahead of universities in many areas. Many of the technical papers we use are produced by Google Labs, and I also read papers by scientists involved with Facebook," Zheng added.

In China, AI has become a buzzword, and the sector was even included in Premier Li Keqiang"s 2017 Government Work Report. In July, the State Council, China"s Cabinet, issued a blueprint aimed at making the country the world leader in AI technology and applications by 2030.

Zheng, one of 19 academicians who proposed the guideline, said the education sector has to transform the way it nurtures talent, especially by updating teaching methods and course content to meet the goal.

He also noted that there is a shortage of expert engineers and innovative people capable of leading the sector"s development.

"However, we cannot simply say the lack of innovative AI talent will be the development bottleneck for the industry, because its development will require policy support from the government," he added.

"The sustainable development of some of the latest technologies actually depends on the business model," he said, citing WeChat as an example.

When the instant-messaging platform was launched in 2011, many people felt its business model was poor and would hamper its chances of success. However, Pony Ma, chairman and CEO of Tencent Holdings, which launched the platform, is now one of China"s wealthiest people as a direct result of WeChat"s dominance.

According to Zheng, China needs to transform traditional university majors by combining them with information and AI technologies.

Though the country has made few achievements in disruptive technologies-those that displace established technologies and redefine entire industries-its AI development has attracted attention from scientists, he said.

Meanwhile, the population of 1.4 billion will generate vast amounts of data that will provide impetus for the sector"s development.
