Introduction to the Committee and the Topic:

Artificial Intelligence is one of the three World’s Top Technologies in the 21st century. The application of Artificial Narrow Intelligence has succeeded in various fields, whereas Artificial General Intelligence not only encounters technical barriers, but also triggers heated discussion on “Robot ethics”. On the one hand, Artificial Intelligence will inevitably give rise to a series of technological breakthroughs; on the other hand, technology advancement rests on the reconciliation with moral principles. Therefore, the prospect of Artificial General Intelligence still hangs in the balance.

 

In a new era, with the constantly developing innovative ideas put into practice, the form and concept of education will undergo radical changes. The objective of Innovative Technology is to facilitate the development of new educational concepts. The application of Innovative Technology underpins the optimization of education practices. However, when, where and how should these new applications be carried out publicly is not foreseeable yet fairly hopeful in the near future.
