Детальний опис англійською:
Our mission is “Design Our Future.” We aim to create a better future with people from both developed and developing countries together. People have different views on development, depending on where they were born and raised and what they have experienced before. We hope the participants to build mutual understandings toward development and recognize global issues as common challenges.
IDYF 2018 addresses the issues of co-existence between human and technology, under our philosophy of “Design Our Future.” We cannot live without technology in the contemporary world. Technology are everywhere – medical care, healthcare and welfare, manufacturing, transportation, communications, education, commerce, governance – every corner of the society. The use and prevalence of technology has greatly enhanced quality of life and continuously made life comfortable for us to lead.
On the other hand, there are some gloomy statements such as “Machines are robbing human being of their job” or “AI or Robots have riots and rebel against humans and our civilisation will comes to an end.” This indicates that we might need to hold a doubt about the absolute utility of technology.
IDYF 2018 offers a dedicated place for youth, regardless of the place of birth or domicile, to absorb themselves in an intense and exciting discussions. We guarantee that such an experience is enlightening and inspiring, shaping the participants into the leaders in the next generations.
