Beijing National Day School is arguably the most futuristic middle sc

It also offers different schedules for every one of its 4,500 students, who can choose from more than 400 different classes.

What turns this administrative nightmare into an enticing reality is

the power of AI, which is woven into the very fabric of the school, from grading papers to deli

“We want AI technologies to be ou

A growing number of people are eating alone, whether at home or in restaurants, and overturning traditional etiquette. Zhang Yangfei reports.

In China, food has always played a major role in promoting social cohesion. Communal eating is not on

ly familybased and deeply rooted in the nation’s cultural heritage, but is also regarded as an indicator of society’s health and stability.

Given that background, it is little wonder that eating alone, publicly or privately, has long been considered taboo.

However, in recent years things have started to change as a r

esult of demographic shifts and the growing influence of modern lifestyles.

According to a report released last year by the global market researcher

Kantar, 46 percent of people interviewed said they had eaten alone in the previous 24 ho

urs, a rise of 9 percent from 2017, and about 16 percent expressed a preference for eating solo.
