Mei Song said that the fight of the outbreak continued in the front line and at the same time the country advocated the resumption of work and production of enterprises and institutions which were not located in key areas of the prevention and control of the epidemic under the premises of abundant protections against the epidemic. He said, "During the investigation and research, we find that GTCOM not only responds actively to the call of the country by orderly resuming work and production on the basis of enough protection but also effectively carries out application research of the prevention and control of the epidemic by utilizing its technology advantages such as mass data, natural language processing and knowledge graph. In this way, GTCOM can provide relevant departments with decision-making support and inquiry tools to help them implement prevention and control of the epidemic and emergency management. This shows the responsibility of a technology company."

Yao Maowen said that the GTCOM implemented resumption of work and production in an organized way. Moreover, GTCOM applies its business characteristics and technical advantages to first carry out experiment of telecommuting assistance tools, proving a new idea for the transmission of office working mode. Its practice deserves to be explored and imposed by more enterprises.

Eric Yu reported the resumption of work and production and the protection work against the epidemic. Then he explained the company's exploration during the prevention and control of the epidemic. Eric said, "The unexpected epidemic made us realize that we should analyze the treatment and prevention of the epidemic behind the data through technical methods such as mass data and artificial intelligence. In this way, we can detect the transmission route of the virus and then study and judge several key nodes of the epidemic and measures of control and prevention."
He introduced that during the period of telecommuting at home, the company's research team and product team together developed ''AI Emergency Management System for the Prevention and Control of the Outbreak." Through real-time, open data on the epidemic, the system is able to simulate the real-time process of the virus's transmission route, the response by hospitals and the emergency management of the government in the real world, offering valuable reference for decision-makers and departments of prevention and control. The company launched the ''AI Collection and Analysis System for Disease Control'' based on the trend of work and production resumption and the background of much more population mobility across the country. This system can report, collect and analyze real-time information of institutions such as the government, enterprises, hospitals and schools and can also upload information of disease control data at the same time as a way to offer decision-making data to management departments, to serve as a reference for the efficient distribution of materials and to provide staff in public management with warning signals so as to improve their capacities of tracking and response in a time of epidemic illness.

Recently in the task arrangement meeting on the prevention and control of the epidemic and socioeconomic development, Xi Jinping, the General Secretary of the Central Committee of the CPC, noted that the epidemic brought challenges and opportunities to a broad portion of the economy. Some traditional industries have been impacted, but emerging industries such as AI manufacturing, online shopping and healthcare have shown profound potential to resist negative impact. With this as an opportunity, we should upgrade traditional industries and also develop emerging industries. As an advanced technology enterprise, GTCOM will continue its exploration of the opportunities behind challenges. In the process it will provide more technical support and help for orderly resumption of work and production of disease control, enterprises and institutions.
