Smart library to house 1.5m books

Robots and artificial intelligence help power joint China-Singapore library project

(11 June 2019) A smart library joint venture between China and Singapore, using robots and artificial intelligence (AI), is drawing praise from round the world, some hailing it as a successful combination of technology and eco-lifestyle.

The China-Singapore Tianjin Eco-city Library and Archives says it is using new technology to create a better experience for readers.

Covering an area of 35,000 sq m and a building area of 67,000 sq m in Tianjin-Binhai, China, the library is a key construction project between the governments of China and Singapore, as well as a major livelihood project of the Eco-city.

Located 10km from the core district of Binhai New Area, the Sino-Singapore Tianjin Eco-city, once a barren land composed of saltpan, deserted beaches and wastewater ponds, now serves as the forerunner of China’s model for sustainable development.
