Many talents in the field of AI devote themselves to the cause of AI technology. With the emergence of a learning society and the advent of the era of mass innovation, citizens’ scientific literacy, cultural quality and innovation consciousness have become the important foundation for human development in the current era, and also become the important guarantee for the development of cutting-edge technologies such as artificial intelligence. CAAI took this opportunity, together with the domestic and foreign professionals in the field of artificial intelligence, to explore the scientific quality of artificial intelligence and international new ways, guided the social public to pay more attention to scientists “universal” science, helped the culture, education, science and technology innovation and social benign interaction and continued into the situation.
It is urgent to improve the scientific literacy of the whole people
In the field of artificial intelligence, China has been at the forefront of the world. However, with the rapid development of science and technology, the future competition will be fiercer. Not to advance is to go back, so China still needs to maintain a high degree of vigilance. In this case, it is particularly important to improve the scientific literacy and information recognition ability of the whole people. This special BBS will help improve the country’s overall scientific and technological competitiveness, fully release the positive energy of scientific and technological development, and create a better future.
