GEC has been committed to driving scientific and academic research in the ISTIME fields since our establishment in 2016. And we’ve developed numerous initiatives and projects, including the Global Competence Development Project and the monthly Global Top Scientists Forum, and have collaborated with renowned universities worldwide to establish global joint innovative talent cultivation centers, university-level joint research centers, and international joint laboratories.

Building on our extensive practical experience, our upcoming parallel session will explore the societal impact of AI technology, examining how AI positively influences various domains, including engineering design, manufacturing science and technology, energy science, life science, public health, etc. We have also invited scholars, experts, scientists, and officials from international organizations from the interdisciplinary field of AI worldwide, alongside distinguished guests such as Prof. Randy W. Schekman, the 2013 Nobel Laureate in Physiology or Medicine, who has delivered several enlightening lectures at previous GEC Global Top Scientists Forums, and Ms. Angela Kane, former UN High Representative for Disarmament Affairs and Under-Secretary-General for Management in the United Nations. They will join us to explore the forefront and trends of relevant disciplines, as well as how to introduce effective governance mechanisms in AI applications to promote its healthy development and maximize its potential. We expect that this event will provide a networking opportunity for young scholars and scientists from various sectors and dimensions to exchange experiences and share the latest developments in their fields, shaping a future world guided by principles of humanity, scientific progress, and technological innovation.
