Recently, Turing Award winner, winner of the Chinese Government Friendship Award, and foreign academician of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, John Hopcroft, brought "University The computer's professional outstanding teacher reward program winners walked into the University of Science and Technology to learn about the progress and landing of artificial intelligence technology. Li Shipeng, vice president of the University of Science and Technology Xunfei Group and the joint director of Xunfei Research Institute, accompanied the whole process.
The "University Computer Professional Outstanding Teacher Reward Program" was launched in 2018.John Hopecroft and the Chairman of the Chinese Computer Society and Professor Gao Wen of the Chinese Academy of Engineering, as promoters, gathered some high-tech enterprises with important social influences such as Keda Xunfei, Microsoft, Lenovo, etc. Teaching evaluation and teacher rewards promote colleges and universities to pay more attention to undergraduate classroom teaching, effectively improve the relationship between teaching and research, and promote the overall improvement of the teaching quality of computer majors in China.
In order to promote the long-term healthy development of the "University Computer Professional Outstanding Teacher Reward Program", promote the deep integration of industry, academia and research, John Hopcroft Leading high-tech enterprises to explore the development and reform of computer science talent education. Based on the outstanding performance in artificial intelligence technology and talent training, HKUST has been selected as a high-tech enterprise of "University Computer Professional Outstanding Teacher Award Program". Visit the first stop of the series.
Into the HKUST Flight Demo Hall, John Hopcroft and his team have learned about the latest achievements of the core technologies such as speech recognition, speech synthesis, and machine translation. After learning that the Xunfei input method can convert the voice into text in real time, he is interested to try "Can you understand the way I talk also", The input method was quickly and accurately transcoded, so that he nodded and praised.
Subsequently, in the field of smart home, education, medical, automotive, political and legal, etc. The application has a detailed understanding.The most interesting thing for John Hopcroft is the Xunfei personalized learning manual. They said that the technical path and design concept of the personalized learning manual is very beneficial to students' personalized learning. It is worthy of widespread promotion."
Subsequently, John Hopcroft and his party exchanged ideas with President Li Shipeng on how to promote computer science talent training. John Hopcroft believes that China should support the research and development of teachers and students in terms of policies, funds, and evaluation mechanisms. On the other hand, it should strengthen the relationship between schools and enterprises.Use the advantages of both sides to promote the progress of scientific research. In education, John Hopcroft said, “The earlier you invest in your child’s education, the greater the reward you get. The first two years of your child’s education, how to learn. If you lay a good foundation, it will affect their life."
President Li Shipeng said that he strongly agrees with Mr. John about strengthening the school The cooperative view, “Xunfei has been exploring how to establish close ties with professional schools. Knowledge learning and laboratory research are very important, but it is also important for students to understand the real world in practice”. Currently,Xunfei has already implemented a plan to build an ecological alliance system with nearly 100 universities, and set up a two-line learning scenario to set up an AI LAB experimental site to provide a complete set of laboratory solutions for the cultivation of artificial intelligence talents in universities, including
According to Goldman Sachs' Global Artificial Intelligence Industry Layout, China shows 51% of the world's emerging artificial intelligence projects in 2017, but global artificial intelligence talents In terms of reserves, China only accounts for 5%. It is estimated that by 2030, the number of artificial intelligence talents in China will exceed 5 million.All of this means that there is no time to train artificial intelligence talents.
Computer as one of the foundations of the development of artificial intelligence, has important significance for the sustainable development of artificial intelligence industry. Joining the "University Computer Professional Outstanding Teacher Reward Program", Keda Xunfei hopes to promote the cultivation of Chinese computer innovation talents on the one hand, and hopes to exert the advantages of artificial intelligence on behalf of enterprises to help the rapid development of China's education.
