BRUSSELS, March 2 (Xinhua) -- Annual inflation of the euro zone is expected to be minus 0.3 percent in February of 2015, up from minus 0.6 percent in January, according to a flash estimate released Monday by Eurostat, the statistical office of the European Union.

Eurostat said the main factors behind the trends were cheaper energy prices Wholesale Philadelphia Flyers Jerseys , which were 7.9 percent lower than that of February 2014, and a 0.2 percent decline in prices of non-energy industrial goods.

Services is expected to have the highest annual rate increase in February, up by 1.1 percent, followed by food, alcohol and tobacco.

Eurostat said the unemployment rate in January fell to 11.2 percent from 11.3 percent in December, marking the lowest rate in the euro area since April 2012.

Analysts said a double dose of good news for the euro zone show that the risks of economic stagnation and deflation in the bloc are falling.

BEIJING Wholesale Ottawa Senators Jerseys , Oct. 25 (Xinhua) -- Facial recognition is becoming increasingly common in China, where it has been installed at ATM machines and KFC restaurants. Now the technology has arrived in university classrooms to track student attendance.

Shen Hao, a professor with Communication University of China, is using facial recognition in his six courses to keep track of the attendance of more than 300 students.

Before every class, Shen activates a new attendance system installed on his tablet computer. Students stand in front of the screen one by one to have their photos taken and matched with those in the school's database.

The system is based on facial recognition technology from Chinese Internet giant Baidu's open AI platform.

Currently, the platform has offered more than 80 different technological services to the public Wholesale New York Rangers Jerseys , helping program developers like Shen to develop their own applications.

"The traditional way of tracking attendance is through a roll call. The new system saves time and reduces the workload of teachers," said Shen.

Students have joked that facial recognition is harsh as it doesn't allow for skipping classes. "But they support the technology to enter colleges," said Cui Yuqin, a student majoring in data journalism with the university.

China's Forward-looking Industry Institute said that the facial recognition market in China surpassed 1 billion yuan (about 150 million U.S. dollars) in 2016 and is expected to hit 5.1 billion yuan by 2021.

Facial recognition technology has already been put to creative use. Beijing's Temple of Heaven has used it in toilets to deter toilet paper theft. In east China's Jinan, traffic police installed facial scanners at intersections to catch and shame jaywalkers, and a Beijing university has used the technology to guard its dorms.
