Title: Speech Research in the context of 3Bs
Speaker:Prof. Yonghong Yan，Chinese Academy of Science
With the rapid evolution of Artificial Intelligence represented by Deep Neural Networks, the accuracy of speech and audio processing has also been improved greatly. The latest trend of acoustic and language modeling technologies can be characteristically by three Bs, which is big data, big computing and big model. This talk will cover our latest thinking and research activities in the field, and briefly introduce the latest applications.
Yonghong Yan, received his BS in EE from Tsinghua Univ in 1995, PhD in Computer Science from Oregon Graduate Institute in 1995. He is a Professor and Chief Scientist of Institute of Acoustics, Chinese Academy of Science. He has been in audio signal processing and speech recognition field for more than 35 years. He is the PI for multiple national grants. He has more than 300 papers and holds more than 100 patents. He is the recipient of a number of National and Ministry Awards.
Title: From Virtual Reality to Metaverse: Key Technologies and Development Trends Speaker:Prof. Jianrong Tan，Academician of Chinese Academy of Engineering Abrstract:
The uses of the Metaverse include 1. Energy Metaverse: The Metaverse will promote a full-link, full-connection, full-coverage, full-ecological, and full-scene energy open-service system. Further, the Energy Metaverse promotes constructing the energy Internet application platform and the embodiment of ecological value, builds a new power system technology with new energy as the main body and provides visual support; 2. Agricultural Metaverse: The applications of the Agricultural Metaverse include blockchain, artificial intelligence, virtual reality, intelligent robotics, and other technologies; 3. Real-estate Metaverse: Our real estate metaverse includes virtual houses, virtual house inspections, and virtual experiences to improve the real estate industry in the cyber world; 4. Vocational education metaverse: Vocational metaverse technology is used to develop a targeted vocational education environment. The experience of sophisticated teachers can be included in the training of young people through virtual reality. The process consists of perception, attention, memory, understanding, questions, experiments, trials, etc. The Vocational Education Metaverse enables learners to engage in serious learning in a highly realistic world with far-reaching consequences.
