The conference will also invite more than 100 guests to share the latest developments in more than 30 topics on AI, intelligent medical treatment, informationalized education, industrial design, financial technology etc.
AI Alters Our Life
In 1956, inDartmouth College located in the quiet town of Hannos, a group of intelligent scientists were discussing a completely abstract and imaginative theme: artificial intelligence (shorted as AI). Up to now, 61 years have passed, and artificial intelligence has grown strongly, which has a very profound impact on the world’s economy, human life and social progress.
When the robot AlphaGo beat the world champion Go player Ke Jie by 3:0, people around the world were shocked by the progress of AI. The world-famous scientist Hawking has warned us of the rapid development of AI, predicting that AI can pose a threat to human survival or destruction.
Whether AI really threatens human survival is still in dispute, but there is no doubt that AI has brought great convenience to people’s work and life. More people have great expectations and vision on the future development of AI technology to bring greater convenience.
People may wish to imagine that in the medical field, intelligent diagnosis and treatment can apply AI technology to diagnosis and treatment – the computer “learns” the medical knowledge of the expert doctor and simulates the doctor’s thinking pattern and diagnosis reasoning, thus giving a reliable diagnosis and treatment scheme so that the patient will no longer need to queue up to register. In the field of education, the exam papers and homework assigned to students is an important part of the coherence between pre-class and post-class. The assignments were left behind after they were finished by students, but now intelligent machines can program them into data that can be handled and analyzed by computers, so that teachers can easily and accurately understand how well each of the student digests the knowledge learned in class. In the field of entertainment, the use of VR / AR technology can be a good way to enhance the experience of personal game and entertainment, to achieve an immersive new entertainment experience.
At present, AI has been applied to the field of intelligent medical, informationalized education, industrial design, financial technology, innovation and entrepreneurship, sports industry, Internet +, intelligent manufacturing, etc. Moreover, the rapid development and the impact on human life of cloud computing, Internet of things, big data, robot and other industries that are driven by AI is immeasurable.
