This week, I presented a speech on the going computational thinking. This will be the last general-purpose presentation I held in undergraduate school.
I still remember that when I was in the primary school, I was the student who always remained silent. Until the middle stage of junior high school, I was able to convince myself to give a public speech. When I prepare a speech, I always write down verbatim speech script, and carry them together with me when I stand on the platform, in case that I will forget what to say. Nevertheless, this time I dare to say, I performed a good job without such a speech draft.
Life is changing progressively. Big data, machine leaning, artificial intelligence, virtual reality and so many computational techniques are bringing comprehensive changes to our daily life.
As I said in the beginning of the presentation, everyone in this digital world needs to update himself / herself iteratively.
No matter what industry you are in, computing is ubiquitous.
Computational thinking is like mathematical thinking, to help you better understand the digital world.
In the era of digital economy, do you want to be a consumer or a creator?
One way to iterate ourselves is to learn computational thinking and understand programming. So that, everyone can become the creator of the digital age, and even the leader.
Here are the presentation slides:
