Apps drive Changning’s digital revamp

Ten key digital and smart applications were presented in downtown Shanghai yesterday to provide brand-new economic, life and social governance experiences.

The apps were presented in Changning District at a digital transformation promotion meeting as pilot projects to be promoted across the city. They are expected to speed up digital transformation and improve people’s daily lives.

They include the Hongqiao Digital Mall, featuring additional online shopping platforms and a wider usage of digital renminbi.

The SIMIC Valley innovation park near Zhongshan Park will develop and showcase artificial intelligence apps. The office building was renovated from the former Printemps Department Store on Dingxi Road, which closed in April 2019.

More AI as well as digital manufacturing, health, traveling and innovation apps will debut at the Hongqiao Linkong Digital Economy Park.

The digital life convenience apps deal with education, medical services, senior care, and travel and accommodations.

A Medical Data Open Platform will integrate all medical data and services in the district. The data can be shared by hospitals across the city with the premise of privacy protection.

The “one-button” elderly care platform allows seniors to make medical appointments and emergency calls from home, as well as calling cabs or having meals delivered.

Smart apps and high-tech gadgets will be installed in communities to help ensure the security, comfortable living, and healthy and convenient life for Changning residents.

The “Digital Hotel” app will include online booking, room selection, and fast check-in and check-out, as well as smart control of room equipment.

A total of 100 such smart apps will be released in Changning, according to the district’s three-year plan to promote digital transformation.

Wang Lan, Changning’s Party secretary, said the district aims to take the lead in the digital transformation process among local districts. The apps mainly focus on the economy, life and social governance to cap Changning’s ambition to become a quality district with global influence, she said.
