From Imagination to Digital Innovation: Exploring Chinese Culture and AI Evolution

Human imagination is the driving force for our society and development. In this talk, we aim to cover two parts. The first part looks back and covers some examples of human imagination in Chinese history and society. It offers some insights on what imagination means and how this may differ or manifest cross-culturally. The second part looks forward and covers some latest developments in the area of AI. It invites audiences to imagine how our life could change and differ with or beyond our imaginations.
