SMU News, May. 10 On May 10th, Professor Daniel Berg and Professor James M.Tien, academician of the American Academy of Engineering, were invited to SMU for academic visits and exchanges. Liu Yubin, deputy secretary of the SMU party committee and president of SMU, met with Professor Daniel Berg, Professor James M.Tien and his entourage. The two sides had in-depth exchanges on deepening academic cooperation.
Subsequently, two professors gave an academic report entitled “Convergence to Real-TimeDecision Making”, which was attended by more than 200 teachers and graduate representatives. During the lecture, the two professors brought about discussions on big data, system engineering, the Internet of things and the management of emerging technologies, which were rich in content and profound in thought.
Starting from the history of the development of science and technology, Professor Daniel Berg analyzed the emergence and management of the main technologies in history, introduced the basic ideas and theories related to the management of new technologies and discussed the key parameters of new technologies. Thus, the influence of system engineering and big data technology on various products and services, as well as the great benefits brought by the Internet of things technology, were introduced.
Professor James M.Tien made some thoughts on big data and the Internet of things. He mainly analyzed the impact of big data's analytical technology, adaptive services, digital manufacturing industry, and big data on products and services, including the challenges and great opportunities brought by big data, and limitations in the utilization of big data. This lecture not only imparts the basic knowledge of big data, the Internet of things and artificial intelligence to our teachers and students, but also provides us with international guidelines for the research in related fields.
