Las Vegas, NV /PRNewswire/ - Remark Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ: MARK
), a diversified global technology company with leading artificial intelligence ("AI") solutions and digital video analytics, today announced that its KanKan business in China launched the Five-Education student support system as a subscription-based add-on to its Smart Campus system. The Five-Education system uses data and scenario-based precision analytics, such as functionality that monitors each student's attention span and also the engagement between teacher and student, to electronically provide comprehensive reports designed to improve and independently evaluate each student's overall academic performance.
The Zhejiang province education department has had the Five-Education system installed at more than 400 schools where the add-on serves more than one million primary and secondary school students and has generated more than 20 million push notifications through the mobile application of the Smart Campus system. Remark's successful implementation of the Five-Education add-on has led to improved student attendance and improved student performance metrics. Over the next three years, the company expects to deploy the $4,200 add-on in approximately 4,000 schools, with the value of the contract representing approximately $17 million of recurring annual revenue by the end of 2026.
The Smart Campus system, with its epidemic prevention and control functionality, has been designed to assist school staff by:
- Recording body temperature before students enter the campus, thereby allowing staff to begin monitoring health status before students enter classrooms and other buildings.
- Controlling access to campus using a pre-generated QR code as well as KanKan's computer vision technology to identify whether persons trying to enter campus are authorized and are healthy.
- Reducing manual tasks by automating student attendance management and health screening of students and staff.
- Using a mobile app to allow for reservation of and touch-free access into private study rooms, classrooms, laboratories, activity rooms and other functional areas.
- Reduce electricity consumption and greenhouse gas emissions.
"We are pleased that Zhejiang province's school system has elected to expand upon KanKan's Smart Campus system by purchasing the Five-Education add-on," says Kai-Shing Tao, Chief Executive Officer of Remark Holdings. "We have found that active student-teacher engagement improves a student's academic performance, which can be tracked and enhanced through our AI-powered software. We look forward to expanding our system to more than 30 other provinces in China based upon the success of this launch."
