LAS VEGAS, Oct. 2, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Remark Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ: MARK), a diversified global technology company with leading artificial intelligence ("AI") solutions and digital media properties, today announced a new partnership with Tongyue Technologies to bring its KanKan AI school solutions and leading AI technology to Tongyue's recent launch of its Kindergarten Medical Robot, which identifies a student's health condition, weight, height, and body temperature within ten seconds to determine whether the student is suspected of contracting hand, foot, and mouth disease ("HFMD") or other potentially infectious diseases.
Initially launching in Hangzhou with 30 kindergartens representing 12,000 students, the partnership is expected to deploy to over 500 kindergartens in the Hangzhou province, representing 200,000 students.
KanKan AI solutions relieve the current manual burden of a kindergarten teacher's daily physical checkups of the students in their classroom. Paired with KanKan AI's Smart Campus Platform, the daily physical examination data is transmitted to the local government's Center for Disease Control ("CDC"), as well as kept for both school and parental records.
"We are pleased to partner with Tongyue to add Smart AI capabilities to their Medical Robot geared towards detecting diseases among kindergarten students before it spreads. This feature complements our current products which are designed to relieve the routine tasks and burdens experienced by teachers in keeping track of student attendance while maintaining school safety," noted Kai Shing Tao, Chairman and CEO of Remark Holdings.
"In addition, we are close to the monetization of our Sharecare position. Sharecare recently became a primary beneficiary of Walmart's strong push into consumer healthcare with the planned openings of local health clinics inside existing Walmart stores, attracting the attention of additional new parties seeking to invest, thereby allowing us to potentially realize a higher value for our stake," added Tao.
