Speech Title:  A New Generation of Artificial Intelligence in Sustainable Energy and Electric Systems


Artificial Intelligence (AI), including computational intelligence, cognitive intelligence and cognitive intelligence, is one of the most subversive science and technology. At present, the branch of artificial intelligence which includes deep learning, reinforcement learning and transfer learning, has entered a new stage, opening a new direction to solve many scientific and engineering challenges. It has broad application prospects in the fields of energy internet, intelligent manufacturing, healthcare, and so on. This presentation will focus on the new generation of artificial intelligence in sustainable energy and electric systems, including the operation optimization of the energy supply and consumption sides, the electric systems control, and energy markets. Finally, the future challenges and opportunities will be explicitly addressed.

Speech Title:  Artificial Intelligence in Education


Artificial Intelligence (AI) in Education is an important subject area in computer science. This talk will introduce the past, present and future of AI and its role in mathematical games for education. We will demonstrate to the audience the vibrancy of AI through a variety of novel AI software such as AI Chatbot 

and learning applications powered by Deep Learning and Google Tensorflow software, demonstrating how human-AI augmentation can enhance the efficacy of teaching STEM skillsets, solving education equity problems and building an AI-ready workforce.
