Ministry of Industry and Information Technology data show

ed China’s digital economy had reached more than 27 trillion yuan ($4 trillio

n) in 2017, a year-on-year rise of 20.3 percent, accounting for nearly 33 percent of GDP.

Lu said the growth rate of the number of people working as new media operators in 2017 was mo

re than 10 times that of 2013. The growth comes as more consumers turn from mass media to new me

dia, which provides more information, is faster, has a more diversified presentation and cheaper cost.

Algorithm engineers, in particular, grew at exponential rates. More than fi

ve times as many people worked as algorithm engineers in 2017 than 2013, he said.

“Algorithm is the foundation for artificial intelligence. AI has started to integrate with other industr

ies and already had been successfully implemented in AI plus marketing, finance and assisted medical dia

gnosis. AI engineers will have more value as AI becomes more closely tied with more businesses,” Lu said.

The success case of Entertainment One in defending th

Last year, the Hangzhou Internet Court ruled in favor of Entertainment On

e which identified the infringement of the Peppa Pig copyright by two Chinese comp

anies. These companies were subsequently ordered to cease production and sales of their toy kitchen sets

that featured the image of Peppa Pig. They were also ordered to pay a combined 150,000 yuan ($22,150) in fines.

“As we are still a relatively new brand in China, the biggest achievem

ent is to have made such an impact on piracy in such a short space of time,” Pfeiffer said.

First broadcast in the UK in 2004 and formally introduced in China

in 2015, the cartoon chronicles the adventures of Peppa, her family and friends. The latest trai

ler for the theatrical release of the Peppa Pig generated more than 1.5 billion views in China, according to company stat

istics. Its popularity has generated a raft of toys, clothes and other spin-off products. Counterfeits are also rife.

Li Qiang, director of the Shenzhou Institute’s postgradua

raduate department, said China has trained hundreds of foreign space engineers since the mid-1990s.

However, those training sessions were mostly occasional, often accompanied a satellite export deal, and were mainly focu

sed on ground-based control and applications of satellites rather than their design and production, the director said.

“However, in recent years, along with the expansion in our cooperation in the space indu

stry with other countries, many of our foreign partners voiced their hopes that we could hold some sort of syst

ematic training programs to help them create their own spacecraft designers and technicians,” he said.

Therefore, he said, “We decided to open a two-year postgraduate prog

ram and then sent the message to countries having space cooperation with China.”
