HANGZHOU, Aug 6 (Xinhua) -- The Hangzhou Asian Games Organizing Committee (HAGOC) on Thursday unveiled 30 intelligence solutions in 10 key areas for the Asian Games Hangzhou 2022, which is expected to be green, smart, economical and ethical.

These solutions, selected from 187 proposals submitted by high-tech enterprises, universities and research institutions nationwide, will be applied to make the Games smart in a variety of operational areas.

Cutting-edge technologies including big data, artificial intelligence, virtual reality, Internet of things and block chains will be applied to improve the operational efficiency of the Games and provide athletes, spectators and tourists with top-notch services.

According to Han Chongxin, an official with China Mobile Hangzhou, 5G technology will bring a faster and more smooth game-watching experience for the audience, who can enjoy the matches on their phone with VR and AR offering interactive and immersive experiences.
