Men all over the world can be traced to 120,000 years ago, a man in the y chromosome, all women can be traced back to 150,000 years ago of a woman.
6,000 years ago, Han Chinese man only three common ancestors–inflammation, yellow, Chiyou, 1000 years ago, East Asians have the 11 common 40% ancestor.
Carbon smart CEO Wang Jun in yesterday’s Tencent “clouds + future” Summit said.
Humans share a common ancestor that is old, but in this based on the exact time and determine how much numbers is still a little hard to believe. So after reading these two sets of data, small heart, two questions, the first is the data come from? This, Wang June soon gives the answer: Disney phone case
Life itself can be digitized, and the second is life itself can be artificial intelligence, and the third, life itself can be networked.
The second question is whether carbon smart is a kind of company?
Compared to early June Wang in the BGI gain worldwide fame and success overnight, carbon smart cloud does seem a bit mysterious.
16 years ago, graduated from the Biology Department of Beijing University, Wang June has created the world’s largest Genomics–BGI and the successful launch of the first Asian genome, BGI have done genetic tests and collect data. October 2015 June Wang and several executives of BGI and created a cloud of carbon smart, which is a platform for health data company.
In January this year, carbon smart to raise 700 million Yuan, in April completed a round of financing of 1 billion yuan in July and received 300 million yuan in a new round of financing. At present the company’s valuation has more than $ 1 billion, and included success in being a Unicorn.
Although no one cloud of carbon smart and BGI compared to pick up, many investors treat them as the same company, but in fact the two origins deep company has made a big difference, at least June Wang thinks so.
Alternative business models
Read June Wang after the BGI during the glorious history, you can see that he has more than 10 years to be the most significant thing is to set up a China biological information platform, they completed their first Asian genome, the giant panda genome, thousands of genomes, the human genome projects such as the gut, industry person June Wang is the soul of the BGI.
In October 2015, June Wang resigned from BGI CEO positions, and the BGI, Chief Operating Officer of Wu Chun, Chief Scientist Li Yingrui set up a cloud of carbon smart, and the main purpose is to collect, analyze data to life.
But the two companies appears to be similar, but the business model is very different.
June Wang had previously expressed to the outside world, carbon smart’s goal is to build a cloud data platform. But look at the company’s current top 5 business structure you might not understand carbon cloud over what to play:
1. data collection and technology platforms, production and acquisition data of the human life cycle;
2. data analysis of artificial intelligence technology platform;
3. intelligent hardware, for the collection of data and the promotion of products and services interface;
4. databases and database for the storage of data and samples;
5. provide individualized service for each user O2O system.
Large, artificial intelligence, intelligent hardware, O2O, what is concatenated together in these areas?
In simple terms, carbon smart to do three things:
First is carbon cloud intelligent of data of source: part by himself of technology capacity gets, by the team of core technology gets of has gene data, and microbial data (intestinal, and oral, and skin,), and protein and the metabolism data (urine liquid, and sweat, and blood,),; another part by cooperation partners gets, cooperation partners including research institutions, and pharmaceutical, and Medical Center, and hospital, and diagnosis company, and insurance company, and health management company,, from cooperation partners at gets of data has clinical and the medical data, and environment data, and movement data, and Diet data, and so on.
Second thing is to use artificial intelligence technology to process the data (perhaps not many people know June Wang at the University took computers and artificial intelligence).
Third is to commercialize the data, help people with health management, providing data services for medical institutions, such as skin care, users can use the carbon smart line system for a skin test, then carbon smart data analysis techniques to provide users with personalized programmes or O2O service.
In contrast, gene was originator of the BGI model is relatively traditional.
Industry there are two different kinds of metaphor: “BGI is a Foxconn genes” and “BGI is the Google of biology”.
Is a dark honey, black for the simple reason: while gene sequencing of BGI is the world’s largest institutions, but its sequencing machines from the United States a large number of acquisitions, they think of foreign instruments and sequencing is not high technology content.
Song Liwei Wo capital founder (BGI early stage investor) is saying, “BGI is a data company. Lots of sequencing behind real, is to do a lot of genes, to identify the interactions between genes, after discovering which genes determine our sickness and death. “He believes BGI as a large company than sequencing so simple.
More straightforward interpretation is based on the sequencing of BGI, primarily to provide reproductive health, basic research, complex diseases, such as drug discovery and development services.
Comparing the two companies, in addition to data collection agreement, business model there is a great deal of difference, smart carbon clouds in integrating the concept of artificial intelligence to the data, and provide services more relevant to ordinary consumers.
White is the ultimate goal?
Health in the movie Super marine robot white is a medical partner, in addition to sprouting outside appearance, it enables you to quickly scan and detect abnormal mood or injuries of the human body and its treatment.
Of course white is not a pure fictional robots, June Wang, considered biological data combination and artificial intelligence is to create such a great white.
It sounds cool, but in June Wang did not seem impossible.
First of all, any characteristics of the human body can be digitized, not just your fingerprints, Iris can be digital, three dimensional, every cell in your body can be digitized, all of your lifestyle, diet, gene and protein metabolism in your body, your whole body can be digitized.
With these data combined with artificial intelligence will be able to make a real-life health management programs. Disney phone case
Collect a variety of vital signs data and information, and on the basis of the data, to build a kernel model of artificial intelligence, and butt it up, such a consolidation. It can even interpret the human genome and health information, and precision medical health risk warning, and personalized medicine.
Currently, carbon smart was doing a “digital longevity of life” project, it can determine the age of mankind, and feedback the best anti-aging solution.
