The online summit of the world Artificial Intelligence Conference 2020, themed "Intelligent Connectivity, Indivisible Community", was held in Shanghai from July 9 to 11. During this period, Yiku Med (Shanghai Yibao Technology Co., LTD.) and Yi Yin Health (Zhejiang Houda Intelligent Technology Co., LTD.) respectively released the cooperation agreement of "Traditional Chinese Medicine AI Block Chain Identification Product" online in Shanghai and Hangzhou, leading the digital development of traditional Chinese medicine industry. Traditional Chinese medicine is a great invention of the Chinese nation and a treasure of Chinese civilization.Intelligent decocting system for traditional Chinese medicine built by Houda Intelligent Technology in the spirit of "inheriting essence, adhering to the path, and innovating” has significantly increased the quality of decoction, medication safety, and convenience and realize the mass customization of traditional Chinese medicine. During the Covid-19 pandemic, it produced 60000 traditional Chinese medicines for more than 100 medical institutions in Zhejiang every day.
As a state-level high-tech enterprise, Zhejiang Houda Intelligent Technology Co., Ltd. has demonstrated its leading position in intelligent manufacturing and TCM innovation in promoting the revitalization and development of TCM in the new era. The intelligent decocting system for Traditional Chinese medicine, utilizing automation, Internet of Things, artificial intelligence, big data and other technologies, provides the overall solution of intelligent Chinese medicine pharmacy for medical institutions and third-party decocting centers. Cai Yongchao, chairman of Houda Intelligent Technology chairman said: the intelligent decocting system is a set of solutions of intelligent Chinese medicine pharmacy, realizing customization and decocting in traditional ways. It covers intelligently reviewing prescriptions, dispensing intelligently and accurately, decocting naturally, decocting twice, tempering gently, packaging intelligently and distributing automatically. There is no cross contamination in the whole process of decocting, and the efficacy is guaranteed. The intelligent decocting system provides "one-stop" service from TCM prescription to residents taking the medicine so that residents can easily use the safe medicine.
As an explorer of AI research and development in China's traditional Chinese medicine industry, Yiku Med successfully developed the "world's first Traditional Chinese medicine identification instrument" in 2018 in cooperation with century-old traditional Chinese medicine manufacturer Caitongdetang. The analysis accuracy of the Chinese medicine identification instrument is more than 90%, and each identification takes only 2 seconds on average, which rivals industry experts. In order to meet the demand of Chinese herbal drink enterprises for the determination of Chinese herbal medicine content, Yiku Med launched the multi-mode AI recognition instrument for Chinese herbal medicine in 2019. The instrument is a Chinese medicinal materials detection technology that integrates digitalization, intellectualization, and integration. It is a groundbreaking combination of artificial intelligence technology, traditional Chinese medicine character identification technology and near infrared spectroscopy quantitative analysis technology. It is a major breakthrough in the field of TCM component detection that realizes 1-minute rapid detection of TCM components and contents. Professor Zhang Qunhua, chairman of Yikuyun, stressed that introducing a new product of TCM AI blockchain quality management system on the basis of THE 2.0 TCM AI multi-mode identification instrument marked the joint beneficial attempts and innovations of artificial intelligence and blockchain in China's TCM industry.
The intelligent innovation of Houda has improved the manufacturing level of traditional Chinese medicine equipment and accelerated the standardization and modernization of traditional Chinese medicine decocting technology and process. The innovation of Yiku Med applies artificial intelligence in the quality management of traditional Chinese medicine genuine medicinal materials. These two companies has integrated the innovation and formed a strategic partnership, which will strongly increase overall operating efficiency and reduce operating costs, and therefore accelerating the popularization and application of TCM AI blockchain identification products around the national TCM industry, improving the quality of Chinese medicine. The application of the intelligent decocting system for Traditional Chinese medicine ensures AI quality check prior to warehousing, contributing to the source control, and the protection of Chinese traditional medicine incoming quality inspection.
