In the coming age of AI, YZU strengthen DIGI Talent

Many people are worried that AI will soon replace workers in the future, however, the application of AI also create new opportunities for human beings and convenient life style. Yuan Ze University is well-known for the information and communication technology. To develop new digital economic talents, YZU start to build field-testing campus for the intelligent learning and healthcare, which focus on problem-based learning and help students prove themselves well in a new digital age.

YZU has announced last year that programming language courses would be implemented in the whole school.“ Learning programming language is global trend” YZU President Jyh-Yang Wu said, "especially in the coming age of AI, many people are worried that robotics will replace human staff. " Wu expressed that it is true AI would direct the change of jobs and life; however, we should strengthen students' abilities of software & information at this point. When we marvel at Alpha Go better than human brain, we should know that, behind AI, there are many teams' brain storming by continuous algorithm programming, big data analysis and deep learning. In brief, in the era of AI, we should try to be in a harmonious coexistence for entering era of digital economy.

Wu said that it is future trend of industrial development with artificial intelligence and deep learning. Developing application of deep learning on AI is to use a lot of original data, like image, voice, language and text, to compute, identify and learn through a big neural network. It is indispensable to establish application of AI deep learning, AI chips, cloud center, algorithm as well as neural network combing with image, text and speech recognition. YZU will strengthen the education in this respect and push forward cross-boundary Integration based on programming language of colleges. Students at school can be acquainted with future industry in this regard.
