Tongue analysis software uses ancient Chinese medicine to warn of disease

Tongue analysis software uses ancient Chinese medicine to warn of disease | Teaching in the XXI Century | Scoop.it

For 5,000 years, the Chinese have used a system of medicine based on the flow and balance of positive and negative energies in the body. In this system, the appearance of the tongue is one of the measures used to classify the overall physical status of the body, or zheng. Now, University of Missouri researchers have developed computer software that combines the ancient practices and modern medicine by providing an automated system for analyzing images of the tongue.

I thought that this was insanely intriguing, informative and entertaining. I mean she made the most interesting and correct points in how China has changed and showed that they aren't all tight and restricting as they were and I actually thought to myself while watching only the first 5 minutes, "Well if her generation fought for all of this then what is the current one doing?" and to that she answered, "Well they don't seem to be doing much." and that is so true. This I would definitely agree with. What are they doing? Who knows what.

China is becoming a less tight and more freedom country. Also it made me wonder how does our generation change our country.

It made think that maye the change in China might change the world or how people look at china and what they think of it.
