After the workshops were concluded, Ye Xin, secretary of the School of Information Technology in Education of SCNU, awarded the certificate to the teaching team.

The event provided a good platform for participants to discuss and share theoretical research and practical experience with AI in education, and as well as to explore its development frontier and interdisciplinary innovation. With that, people can further understand the theoretical and practical frontier of AI in education by analyzing the development trend and concurrent developments in education, according to the School of Education Information Technology.

Being a new driving force for economic development, the continuous development of AI is leading chain breakthroughs in science and technology, and is leading in a new scientific and technological revolution and industrial transformation. At present, the development of the Greater Bay Area has entered the stage of comprehensive promotion, and China has deployed the strategy of AI development to build itself into an innovative country and a leading power in technology.
