节目介绍:Welcome to our 《Science and Technology Briefing》 program! Today, we have a mix of fascinating stories from the world of science and technology. First up, Chinese AI powerhouse iFlytek is feeling the heat under intense U.S. pressure, leading to a significant financial loss. The company blames heavy investments made under what they call ‘ultimate’ pressure from Washington, a situation that stems from sanctions placed on them by the Trump administration in 2019. This has led to an expected loss of up to $65 million for the first half of 2021. Quite the financial rollercoaster for iFlytek! Next, we turn our attention to South Korea, where thousands of Samsung Electronics Union members have launched a three-day strike over pay and bonuses. The union, representing a significant portion of Samsung’s workforce, claims that the strike has disrupted semiconductor production. However, Samsung denies any impact. This strike comes at a critical time as Samsung races to compete with local rival SK Hynix in the development of advanced AI memory chips. Lastly, let’s take a look at NASA’s recent achievement. Four volunteers have completed a 378-day mission simulation, living inside a 3D-printed habitat designed to mimic the conditions of a Mars mission. This year-long endeavor aimed to study human coping mechanisms under isolation and resource constraints, providing invaluable data for future Mars missions. NASA has two more simulations planned as part of their Crew Health and Performance Exploration Analog (CHAPEA) project. Please stay tuned for detailed coverage!
