Currently, AI is revolutionizing industries, reshaping economies, and impacting our daily lives in the fields of innovative economy, AI and robots, autonomous vehicles, space as the next frontier, education technology, medical intelligence, and smart agriculture. He emphasized the importance of "life" and the most common representation of life is no doubt health—"AI and Medical Intelligence".

Followed by "Research and Education in the College of Engineering at Carnegie Mellon University" by Prof. Dr. William Sanders, dean of the College of Engineering at Carnegie Mellon. Showcasing innovative projects that are happening at CMU, for example, Decarb @ CMU: How People, Policy, Technology, and Systems Can Enable a Low Carbon Transition in Industry and SOFTBOTICS: Human-centered Soft Machines and Robots for Everyday Life.

A lively Q&A session followed both talks, where audience members had the opportunity to ask questions which was both informative and engaging, leaving our students and faculty members with much to ponder. 

Both talks address cutting-edge developments in technology and engineering, showcasing their transformative potential in today's rapidly evolving world. We're immensely grateful for this opportunity to learn from such exceptional experts.
